- Sougo (or Geiz) didn't go into RyukiArmor (or a potential RyugaArmor) in this episode. This is the first time where no new Legend Rider form associated with the Legend Rider featured in the tribute arc is acquired.
- This is also the first arc to have an episode title without the year of the airing of the Rider in it.
- The episode's opening sequence is now updated to feature Zi-O's Zi-O II form.
- This is the first episode where the Time Jackers do not make an appearance
- As a Kamen Rider Ryuki tribute arc continuing from the previous episode:
- Similar to how the Mirror Riders meet their demise, Geiz almost died an ironic death in this episode. Given the fact that his own powers can destroy itself, Geiz's death would have been permanent had Sougo not reversed time with Zi-O II's abilities.
