Guest castEdit

Suit actorsEdit


  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have an automobile motif, and the second series to have an element of detective story since Kamen Rider W. It is also the fifth Kamen Rider season to involve the police into matters, though with a heavier influence akin to Kamen Rider Kuuga and Kamen Rider Agito than Kamen Rider W and Kamen Rider Wizard.
  • This is the first Neo-Heisei Kamen Rider series without a cameo appearance from any of its characters during either the previous Rider's summer movie or final episode.
  • The producer of the show calls it a tribute to the 1982 American television series, Knight Rider, quoting it as "Kamen Rider meets Knight Rider".
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have the opening theme be sung by a singer who has portrayed a Kamen Rider in the past. In this case, Mitsuru Matsuoka, who played Katsumi Daido (Kamen Rider Eternal).
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season with a "monster of the fortnight" format to have a three-part episode plot that is not close to the final episode.
