  • Hongou Takeshi is a water crystal researcher for Jounan University. In the movie, it's spelled Jyonan University.
  • A theory is that since both Ichimonji and Yano Katsuhiko are portrayed by Takano Hassei, then Shocker took Katsuhiko's body and remodeled him as Ichimonji.
  • Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel was used as the filming location for Shocker's base.
  • The movie's Manga version apparently ran in the magazine Tokusatsu Ace from February 11, 2006 Issue 227 on. It was supposed to be released in tankoban form, but it never came out.
  • Instead of Professor Shinigami (死神博士), the movie credited the villain as Shocker Commander (Old gentlemen), ショッカー幹部・老紳士.
  • Inoue Toshiki's father, Igami Masaru‎, was the main writer of the original Kamen Rider series.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider movie directed by Nagaishi Takao. He was a director for some episodes of all the Heisei Kamen Rider series, Kuuga to Decade.
  • The one who first arrived after Miyoko's collapse was Asuka. This is how the A plot connects with the B plot.
  • From the calendar in Miyoko's room, we know that she collapsed in April 2004.
  • The taxi driver (Spider), uses taxi/driving puns when he kills his victims, or when he picks up Miyoko.


The story continues in the Kamen Rider THE NEXT movie.
