- The Legend Rider forms introduced in this web series (plus the Ganbarizing-exclusive Kuuga Damashii) all represent Riders who have died (or have been critically injured to near death) at least once and have been revived.
- In Double's case, Philip had died, before the series and was resurrected as the Gaia Library avatar, and had "died" again after the Utopia Dopant fight following the thwarting of Ryubee's Gaia Impact plan.
- OOO's case is a zigzagged example: while Eiji himself didn't die, Ankh had used his visage against Kamen Rider Poseidon when Poseidon met the main OOO cast Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max, and had merely feigned the dead following a Deepest Harpoon slash to allow Ankh a chance to grab the Core Medals within Poseidon.
- Fourze was killed by a one-inch punch to the chest near his heart by Meteor. However, he was soon revived with the power of the Cosmic Switch.
- Wizard is the only Rider out of these few who has not died at all, although he has been close to dying a few times by being sent into despair. If one were to count Dragon as part of himself, then his death would count.
- Gaim was stabbed by Ryugen Yomi's Yomotsuheguri Squash-backed Dau, and was in a death-like state after destroying the Lockseed, though the wound was healed in next episode. Gaim was later killed by Megahex, but was revived again thanks to the Kiwami Lockseed.
- Drive was in a death-like state after his brutal defeat at the hands of Freeze following the Roidmude obtaining his Over Evolved State. Later, he had a near-death experience after a taxing battle with Tenjuro Banno's forces and the Sigma Circular which resulted in his first encounter with Kamen Rider Ghost. Prior to that, canonically, Shinnosuke had also died a couple times during the D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4 events, and was revived by timeloops.
- The Legend Rider forms (while not in order) are also the riders Ghost succeeds as the 7th titular Phase 2 Heisei Rider.
- With the conclusion of Kamen Rider Ghost, many aspects of this special are left vague:
- As Frey and Freya are revealed to be avatars of the omnipotent Great Eye, it becomes unclear why they were forced to run away from a Gamma Ultima like Xibalba.
- Xibalba's goal and his relationship to the Gamma royal family are never explained.
