- Yamada's appearance in Class 2-B is a retcon. The footage used was Gentarou's first appearance in the classroom in episode 1. In that episode, Yamada was nowhere to be found.
- Everyone in the Kamen Rider Club (sans Ryuusei and Oosugi) refers to Mei as "Ryuusei's girlfriend".
- Shirakawa tries to warn Ryuusei with a book called Ningyoutsukai which means Puppeteer. This is a subtle warning that Yamada is secretly controlling all the staff and students in the school.
- Yuuki copies Gentarou's transformation pose and catchphrase entirely.
- First use of the Stamper Switch.
- Meteor continues his Bruce Lee theme here by finishing Gentarou off with a one-inch punch, a move popularized by Lee.
- The Amanogawa characters make fun of Shirakawa throughout the episode by mistaking her for being Ryuusei's girlfriend. This embarrasses her and she responds that she's not his girlfriend yet and that she's disappointed when she hears Ryuusei say they're just friends.
- Fourze is the first Rider series in a while to have a secret identity thing going on. For the first time, the Rider Club finds out that Ryuusei and Meteor are the same person. His identity is revealed when Meteor betrays the Rider Club and Tachibana, causing Tachibana to cancel Meteor's transformation.
- Gentarou actually realizes who Meteor's identity is just a moment before it's revealed, since Meteor said that Gentarou will accept anything for his friends. This is something that Gentarou recently said to Ryuusei, at the beginning of the episode. Plus, Meteor refers to Fourze as "Kisaragi".
- Aries Zodiarts has the power over sleep. That's because Aries is a ram. Rams are sheep. Counting sheep to make one go to sleep.
- Kawahara Kazuma portrayed Kuroba Mutsuki / Kamen Rider Leangle on Kamen Rider Decade episodes 09 and 10.
- Hiromura Mitsumi portrayed Miki on Kamen Rider W Returns: Kamen Rider Accel.
