  • This special features 2 Ryuki Riders, Ouja and Tiger. Interestingly, this year marks the 15th anniversary since the premiere of Kamen Rider Ryuki.
    • While Takashi Hagino previously reprised his role in a voice-only capacity in Kamen Rider Decade, this marks the first in-the-flesh appearance of Takeshi Asakura since the conclusion of Ryuki.
    • Additionally, the special's title contains the word "Survive", an important theme in Ryuki, being the name of its primary Rider Power-Up form and part of the season's tagline, "If you don't fight, you won't survive." Asakura himself even said to Hiiro that "if you don't fight, you will die."
  • First appearance of Foundation X since Kamen Rider Fourze the Movie: Everyone, Space is Here!, they would subsequently feature in Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders.
  • The Kingdark that appears here is revealed to be just a hologram used by the Foundation X agent. This is rather pertinent as he was the opponent of Kamen Rider X.
  • 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.png 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 as 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 as Jason or Leatherface.
