This show features following tropes:
- Ancient Artifact
- Anger Born of Worry: Right after Rage Rider came Back From the Dead, EZ punches him out and calls him out for a few things.
- Big Bad: Mr. Chairman, The Chairman of the Vanity Alliance.
- Big Damn Heroes: A lot of people in Moonrise Part 4.
- Rage Rider does this job the most, defusing all the bombs while Shadow Moon was distracted by EZ's review of Masked Rider and healing EZ who took a stab in the back.
- Mostly everyone on Reviewtopia, who fought most of the Wraiths in the city.
- Apollo Z Hack, who gave EZ a DecaDriver and a Kamen Rider J card during a fight with a giant Shadow Moon
- Crossover: With Apollo Z Hack.
- Deus Ex Machina: Lampshaded by EZ in Moonrise Part 4 when he asks where the last minute Deus Ex Machina is. Cue a delivery man giving him that very thing he needs.
- Disney Death: Rage Rider. Granted, he did die, but he came back to life.
- The Dragon: Shadow Moon up until Moonrise Part 4. After his death, he's replaced by Wolzard.
- G-Rated Drug: The Energy Memory. Now, while all the Gaia Memories are G Rated Drugs in their original show, The Energy Memory takes this straighter than even how Kamen Rider Fourze portrays the G-Rated Drugs, as it makes EZ downright high while giving him an energy boost after using it in his review Godzilla Vs Megalon.
- It does not help that Smoke on the Water is playing in the background when he does so.
- It starts to get treated more of a drug than a simple Transformation Trinket now, complete with addiction, Rage Rider calling him out for using the drugs, and EZ quitting it cold turkey.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Rage Rider heals up EZ Rider right before being killed by Shadow Moon.
- Mooks: Wraiths.
- Name's the Same: Invoked in the Dekaranger vs Abaranger review.
- Older Than They Look: Despite his short stature and boyish looks, EZ's currently 30 years old.
- Real Men Wear Pink: EZ reveals in his Toonami Tribute video that his favorite show on the block is Sailor Moon.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Rage Rider's red, EZ Rider's blue.
- Running Gag: A few, including:
- "Because toy sales will go through the roof!"
- A clip of Moltar saying, "Well, you're just making all this $#!+ up!" whenever the show just throws it's hands and says "I don't give a crap".
- "Isn't it all, POINTLESS!?" whenever a They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot comes up.
- A clip of Yuuto calling Deneb an idiot whenever something stupid comes up.
- "No Morphs Allowed" (ala "No Dogs Allowed") whenever anyone demorphs after taking tons of damage.
- "Rider Fail" (ala "RIDER [insert finisher here]") happens whenever a Kamen Rider gets his ass handed to.
- The J-Hero Justice System gets pulled up whenever the authority attacks the resident hero or put him in jail.
- Shout-Out: In Moonrise Part 3, Hidari Shotaro (as portrayed by EZ) comes and gives him both the Skull Memory and Skull Magnum the exact same way his mentor gave him the Lost Driver in Double's Movie. Lampshaded by EZ.
- The scene in Moonrise Part 4 where EZ gains the power to transform into Black RX is similar to Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger's "unlocking the greater power" moment.
- In that same video, The Big Bad kills The Dragon due to him failing one too many times then hires a new one, who remarks that Shadow Moon was a fool and that he will do better. This is reminiscent of the first season of Sailor Moon, where Jedite falls (in the exact same way) and Queen Beryl hires Nephrite to succeed where Jedite failed.
- The Stinger: In Moonrise Part 4, Mr. Chairman hires a new solider after Shadow Moon failed him for the last time, and it's Wolzard.
- Stock Footage: EZ uses footage from Kamen Rider Black for most of Shadow Moon's moments. Lampshaded during Moonrise Part 4 when EZ mentioned that he uses Stock Footage and Shadow Moon turns around, asking him "...What Stock Footage?"
- Third Time's the Charm: Around the third Christmas Special, EZ Rider gets another gift from Santa at the end of the review. He knows that it's gonna suck and asks Rage to burn it. Rage Rider lampshades the trope and to EZ's surprise, it is the charm.
- Transformation Trinket: As listed above, he uses several from various Toku shows.
- You Have Failed Me: Mr. Chairman executes Shadow Moon after failing to beat EZ for the last time.
