    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Although he is addressing Decade, Narutaki was actually watching Yuusuke/Momotaros as Den-O Sword Form fight Kamen Riders Sasword and Saga at the time.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Yuusuke: (on Momotaros) What is that!?
        Tsukasa: It's the same as the other monster, an Imagin.
        Yuusuke: Imagin!?
        Tsukasa: Seems they don't have a physical form unless they possess other people.

      • Tsukasa: (to the Taros) Hey, you guys… don't play with other people's bodies… get out! (forces the Taros out of his body)
        Ryutaros: (to the other Taros) This happened because we took too long.
        Kintaros: To drive us ou… that's quite impressive.
        Urataros: Just what you'd expect from Decade.

      • Urataros: (possessing Natsumi) Sorry. Normally, I'm not interested in entering women.
        Tsukasa: Natsumi!?
        Kintaros: (possessing Natsumi) Put up with this for a bit!
        Ryutaros: (possessing Natsumi) Alright, I'll start! Henshin! (transforms into Den-O Gun Form) Mind if I defeat you!? Can't hear you!
        Tsukasa: I don't need to respond then. Henshin! (transforms into Decade) I'd like my summer tangerines returned please.

      • Narutaki: You'll regret it. Den-O's World will be… Decade, you truly bring destruction.

      • Owner: DenLiner. The train that travels trough time. Seems something terrible is happening to Decade's World as well as our own Den-O's World. We must hurry and do something.

      • (Tsukasa produces a Rider Pass and ticket)
        Natsumi: What is that?
        Yuusuke: Card?
        Tsukasa: It's a ticket... for the train that travels through time. DenLiner. Put simply, I have to board and travel somewhere.
        Yuusuke: Travel? Wait a moment! What's a train that travels through time? A time machine!?
        Natsumi: How do we board something like that?
        Tsukasa: I don't know that part. For now, when you think about trains, stations come to mind.

      • Natsumi: In other words, you Imagin gain physical form based on the images in other people's minds? But an abnormality occured a few days ago and you lost your physical form again? And you've been going from person to person like a disembodied soul.
        Momotaros: Don't call be a disembodied soul! I'm not a damn ghost!
        Tsukasa: What was your form like originally?
        Momotaros: I don't remember anymore! I can't go back either way. I've lost myself... That's why I'll kick their asses!

      • Natsumi: (on the Momotaros possessed Yuusuke) He's gone. Where did he go?
        Tsukasa: Who?
        Natsumi: Eh!? Yuusuke!
        Tsukasa: Oh. Just let that disembodied soul borrow him. It's not like he's losing anything.
        Natsumi: No way! What'll happen if he does lose something!?
        Tsukasa: Like what?
        Natsumi: LIke brain cells and stuff.
        Tsukasa: That'd be bad. If he loses any more, he'll be in trouble.

    • NOTES (38)

      • Momotaros is the only Taros Imagin not to possess Natsumi, as well as being the only Taros Imagin to possess Yuusuke.

      • Tsukasa recognizes the Rider Pass's function and knows of DenLiner and it's nature as a train of time. He also mentions coffee to Momotaros, perhaps knowing that this is the Taros Imagin's drink of choice on DenLiner.

      • The Taros Imagin already know of Decade, presumably having been told by Narutaki prior to the Hikari Studio's arrival on Den-O's World.

      • With this episode, Yuusuke has been three Kamen Riders. He is Kuuga on his own world, G3-X on Agito's World and now Den-O Sword Form here.

      • Diend summons Kamen Rider Sasword to fight Den-O Sword Form, matching their similar names and main weapons.

      • To fight Den-O Gun Form, Tsukasa transforms into Agito, matching their dragon motifs.

      • To fight Den-O Ax Form, Tsukasa transforms into Agito Flame Form, matching their main fighting styles; brute strength.

      • To fight Den-O Rod Form, Tsukasa transforms into Agito Storm Form, matching both their blue armour and rod/pole weapons.

      • Kamen Rider Silvera briefly appears here, leading into his role in Cho Kamen Rider Den-O & Decade Neo Generations The Movie: The Onigashima Battleship.

      • After being caught in the dimensional rift, Natsumi is wearing the same white dress she wears in her Rider War dream.

      • Possession by the Imagin Urataros turns Natsumi's eyes and hair blue. She also gains a black leather skirt and jacket.

      • Possession by the Imagin Kintaros turns Natsumi's eyes and hair yellow. She also gains a yellow kimono and umbrella.

      • Possession by the Imagin Ryutaros turns Natsumi's eyes and hair purple. She also gains a purple body suit and many stuffed toys.

      • Natsumi is one of the few female characters to become a Kamen Rider. It is also the first time that the Taros have possessed and transformed a female into Den-O.

      • With this episode, Tsukasa has transformed into the nine main Heisei Kamen Riders as least once.

      • Kivahla does not appear in this episode.

      • Guest Riders:
        Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form.
        Kamen Rider Den-O Gun Form.
        Kamen Rider Den-O Ax Form.
        Kamen Rider Den-O Rod Form.
        Kamen Rider Silvera.

      • Decade Rider transformations:
        Agito Flame Form.
        Agito Storm Form.

        Tsukasa also becomes Den-O Sword Form directly.

      • Diend Riders:
        Kamen Rider Sasword.
        Kamen Rider Saga.

      • While on Den-O's World, Tsukasa dresses in Sherlock Holmes style dress, similar to the time-displaced Yuuto Sakurai. He even carries a pocket watch like Sakurai's and has a Rider Pass like that used by Kamen Rider Den-O.

      • While on Den-O's World, the Hikari Studio takes the place of a train station.

      • For the first time, Tsukasa actually becomes the Rider of the world he is visiting instead of acquiring use of their powers through his own Decadriver.

      • Given that Natsumi can see changes to the timeline (buildings disappearing etc) she is presumably a singularity point although simply being from another world may allow this as well.

      • Just as with Ryoutarou in Kamen Rider Den-O, possession by the Imagin Momotaros changes Tsukasa's hairstyle and eye colour to red and allows transformation into Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form. Unlike with Ryoutarou however, Tsukasa's pocket watch (and later Yuusuke's shoes) also change to red. Both gain a red scarf too.

      • Just as with Ryoutarou in Kamen Rider Den-O, possession by the Imagin Urataros changes Tsukasa's hairstyle and eye colour to blue and allows transformation into Kamen Rider Den-O Rod Form. He also gains a white suit with a blue tie.

      • Just as with Ryoutarou in Kamen Rider Den-O, possession by the Imagin Kintaros changes Tsukasa's hairstyle and eye colour to yellow and allows transformation into Kamen Rider Den-O Ax Form. He also gains a fur outfit.

      • Just as with Ryotarou in Kamen Rider Den-O, possession by the Imagin Ryutaros changes Tsukasa's hairstyle and eye colour to purple and allows transformation in Kamen Rider Den-O Gun Form. He also gains street dancer clothes and headphones.

      • This is the first time that the Taros Imagin have possessed a female and used her to become Den-O. Like Tsukasa, Natsumi's hair and eye colour changes to match the possessing Imagin.

      • First appearance of Kamen Rider Sasword from Kamen Rider Kabuto on Kamen Rider Decade.

      • First appearance of Kamen Rider Saga from Kamen Rider Kiva on Kamen Rider Decade.

      • Writer Yasuko Kobayashi previously wrote for the Kamen Rider Den-O series.

      • Toshihiko Seki, Kōji Yusa, Masaki Terasoma, and Kenichi Suzumura all reprise the roles of voicing the Taros Imagin, Momotaros, Urataros, Kintaros and Ryutaros respectively from Kamen Rider Den-O.

      • Kenjirō Ishimaru reprises the role of Owner from Kamen Rider Den-O.

      • Rina Akiyama reprises the role of Naomi from Kamen Rider Den-O.

      • Tamaki Matsumoto reprises the role of Kohana from Kamen Rider Den-O.

      • Monsters: Spider Imagin, Bat Imagin, Molech Imagin, Bloodsucker Imagin and Whale Imagin.

      • The episodes set on Den-O's World are to tie into the theatrical release of Cho Kamen Rider Den-O & Decade NEO Generations: The Onigashima Battleship.

      • Unlike the other Kamen Rider Worlds that Decade has visited, Den-O's World is the same version of reality as the Den-O series itself.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Tsukasa's asking for his 'summer tangerines' back refers to his nickname for Natsumi, 'Natsumikan', which means 'summer tangerines'.
