Not Actually Kyosuke

Not actually Beast

  • It is currently unknown why Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast is "revived" in this special since there is no proof about Kosuke's death in the main timeline. It is possible that it may have been the Magic Land counterpart who was wiped from existence after Magic Land disappeared, though in either case, Beast is the only heroic Rider to appear as a "villain" in this special, counting Sasword's villainous role as the Scorpio Worm.
    • With the special featuring the "Beast Rider Squad", it's possible including a Rider already named "Beast" was simply for this connection.
    • Given Foundation X's involvement, it is possible that this Kamen Rider Beast is an energy construct duplicate of the original. This was done previously by Foundation X in the Movie War films when they made duplicates of the Horoscope Zodiarts and other Kamen Rider villains.
  • Interestingly and ironically, Toshiki Seto (the actor of Hiiro) had said his favorite Kamen Rider is Ouja.[3]
  • Ouja, Sasword, and Dark Kiva had previously appeared together as villains in D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4.
  • The scene where Asakura eats mackerel fish is a reference to Choukou Senshi ChangéríonIcon-crosswiki episode 10 This Isn't Mackerel! (サバじゃねぇ! Saba Ja Nee!), which is a popular meme in Japan.
    • The main hero of this show, Changéríon, was also played by the same actor of Asakura.
  • Ouja using Sasword and Beast as a shield to defend himself from Brave Level 4's attack is a callback to episode 19 of Ryuki, where Ouja uses Kamen Rider Gai as a shield to defend himself from Zolda's Final Vent.
  • There are several references to horror movies in this special:
    • When Mizuki is attacked while taking a shower, the scene is an obvious homage to a scene with the same motif in the film Psycho, however, the way the Rider attacks her is more similar to how Freddy Krueger operates.
    • Additionally, the way Ouja stalks and preys on his victims is similar to the modus operandi of killers from slasher films such Jason or Leatherface.
