- Author's Saving Throw: Hiroshi Fujioka was not pleased at how Hongo was portrayed in Kamen Rider Wars.... So much so that he personally stepped in to help write the movie.
- Broken Base: Kamen Rider 1's new, bulkier look. Many prefer the more slimmer look over the new bulkier one, but many are starting to warm up to the new one, especially as new bits of story come out.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- An aging superhero on one last ride with a young girl in tow, you say?
- Rider #1 dies and is resurrected like Kamen Rider Fourze, Gaim, Drive and Ghost. As it turns out, Kamen Rider Ghost seems to have killed this trend due to a good chunk of people just being sick of it. And may have ultimately ended here with the original.
YMMV / Kamen Rider 1
