  • Quotes (75)

    • Kenji: Today's SHOT Information is RyuKenDo's hissatsu attack. It's GekiRyuKen Madan Slash. Pull the Final Key from the Madan Key holder. Enter it into GekiRyuKen and activate it. With this I can cut enemies in two!

    • Kenji: I'm alive? GekiRyuKen: Do not lose focus. Kenji: Who are you? GekiRyuKen: I am GekiRyuKen. Kenji: A sword? I've lost it. I must have hit my head. (Iron Eater appears) GekiRyuKen: Explanations afterwards. Unsheathe me and enter the key. Kenji: What? GekiRyuKen: Do as I instruct or you will die. (Iron Eater attacks) Kenji: This bastard! GekiRyuKen: You leave me no choice. For now I am taking control over you. (GekiRyuKen enlarges) Kenji/GekiRyuKen: (inserting the RyuKen Key into GekiRyuKen) RyuKen Key! Activate! Change voice: Activate. RyuKenDo. Kenji/GekiRyuKen: GekiRyu Henshin! (Kenji is transformed into RyuKenDo) Kenji/GekiRyuKen: Born with the light, the dragon fang! Smashing the demons in the darkness! RyuKenDo! Raijin!

    • Kenji: I heard demons appear in Akebono City, but I never imagined it'd be that big. Shopkeeper's wife: But dear, this morning's big ruckus was a first wasn't it? Shopkeeper: Oh. That's true. That started about half a year ago I think. In a construction site a strange meteorite was found. They started appearing since then. Kenji: Is that masked Gun Mania guy a good guy? Shopkeeper: That's SHOT. I bet they work with the fire department. Shopkeeper's wife: The police are pretty pathetic after all.

    • Kenji: Today's SHOT Information is about Fire RyuKenDo's hissatsu attack. GekiRyuKen Blazing Slash. When RyuKenDo changes into Fire Mode, he can do this fiery attack. I'm burning up!

    • Kenji: Today's SHOT Information is about RyuKenDo's JuuOu, Brave Lion. Put Lion Key in GekiRyuKen and it summons him. He can transform into Lion Trike. A powerful mecha support animal.

    • GekiRyuKen: From the ancient Earth, covered in ice, life bound together was born. The sword of ice is the god of change. It's the magic that lets people live!

    • Kenji: Today's SHOT Information is Aqua RyuKenDo's hissatsu attack, GekiRyuKen Freezing Slash. When RyuKenDo changes into Aqua Mode, he uses this cold, freezing attack. It can freeze!

    • Kenji: Today's SHOT Information is about the Trinity hissatsu attack. When GekiRyuKen, Brave Lion and RyuKenDo become one a powerful Madan Slash tears out. The three powers combine.

    Trivia (5)

    • The money that Kaori returns to Koichi is, as ZanRyuJin says, British currency, specifically a £10 note. £10 is worth approximately ¥1500.

    • As Dr. Worm glues the pieces of Rock Crimson together, he puts the tube of glue down next to him and it immediately falls over. However, in the following shot from a slightly different angle, the tube is stood upright.

    • As God RyuKenDo chases Jamaindo, the wires used to make it fly are briefly visible.

    • It is unclear why Kenji initially chose to put on his demon mask to fight as it would block much of his vision and, as shown with the police chiefs, get him attacked by his own people who mistook him for a real demon.

    • Despite being able to create perfect duplicates of the townspeople, Niman's copies of RyuKenDo and RyuGunOu have purple visors instead of blue and red respectively. However, no one notices this.
