As the leading Rider protagonist of Kamen Rider Drive, Drive is labeledKamen Rider #31 (仮面ライダー31号 Kamen Raidā Sanjūichigō?) andHeisei Rider #16 (平成ライダー16号 Heisei Raidā Jūrokugō?). Quiz! Decade Countdown!!
As noted by producer Shinichiro Shirakura in the run-up to the release of Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai, with the 15 Showa Riders and then 15 Heisei Riders facing off being "the point in whichHeisei has finally aligned with Showa and in which both are equal", Drive, as the Rider following Gaim, marks the point where "Heisei Rider history will actually surpass Showa, making it a massive turning point for the whole franchise'shistory".
- Like his predecessor, Drive did not debut in the Summer Movie before his series like the previous four KamenRiders before Gaim, who instead made his first appearance in the Kamen Rider Wizard two-part epilogue special. However, it is currently unknown if Drive will make an appearance before the first episode of his series.
