Notes

  • Most of the Riders of this series have four multi-colored “Buttons” on their chestplates. This is a possible gaming reference to the popular Super Famicom controller, as that had similarly colored buttons on its controls.
  • The show’s title is a multiple form of word play, as the “aid” in Ex-Aid is an allusion to First Aid. Another hidden pun is the Japanese pronunciation in katakana is “E-gu-zei-do”, which has a close similar sound to the English word “Excite” when pronounced in Japanese, “E-ku-sai-to”. This is even referenced by the title of the show’s . The final wordplay contains the Japanese pronunciation of the .EXE file extension (“E-gu-ze”).
  • Similarly, the Bugsters’ nature as sentient viruses, is a play on the concept of computer viruses as well as biological pathogens, hence the heroes’ civilian identities as doctors.
  • This is the first season where there are two female riders taking a central part in the show.
  • This Kamen Rider series shares some similar elements with its first Super Hero Time partner, Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger:
    • It uses pixelated graphic effect, similar one used for Cube effects in Zyuohger.
    • Its theme of “game” is similar to the Deathgalien’s Blood Game.
    • Thought being different concepts, both series involved “Continues” (In Zyuohger the Continues were some kind of medals filled with the main villain Ginis’ cells to allow the Deathgalien players to revive as giants while in Ex-Aid, the Continues were extra lives used by Kuroto after being revived as a Bugster).
  • Kamen Rider Ex-Aid shares many similarities with , primarily in regards to the crisis.
    • One of the Riders, , has the ability to stop time. In Ryuki, possesses a similar ability.
    • The purpose of Kamen Rider Chronicle was to revive every individual who had succumbed to the Bugster Virus or suffered a Game Over, though Kuroto primarily wanted to revive his deceased mother. In Ryuki, began the in an effort to save his sister from her demise.
    • Kamen Rider Chronicle pits various individuals given a mass produced variant of the gashat compete against one another to defeat the Bugsters for the opportunity to bring back their loved ones once they learn that any who completes Kamen Rider Chronicle can revive any who died, and at one point, the Rider Players attack the Kamen Riders. In Ryuki, 13 Riders are pitted against one another to have their wish granted.
      • The Ride-Players can also be considered to be the same as the Alternative Riders from Ryuki, as both are unofficial Kamen Riders as well as “mass produced” variants.
  • Ex-Aid is the final Rider series to entirely air at 8 am. Starting in October, Kamen Rider Build moved to 9 am, airing before Uchu Sentai Kyuranger and its Icon-crosswiki.
  • This is the final Kamen Rider series to premiere in October, starting with Kamen Rider Build, the Kamen Rider series return to premiere in September.
  • With a total of 45 episodes, Ex-Aid is the shortest Kamen Rider series in the second phase of the Heisei Era.
    • Following  with a total of 31 episodes, Ex-Aid is the second shortest Kamen Rider series in all the Heisei Era.
  • This is the first series since:
    • to end its broadcast in August.
    • to have only the head writer writing the script and screenplay of every episode.
    • to not have a short specials that leads to the summer film and to not have the protagonist do the narration.
