Continuity and Placement

Because of Dialogue from the later episodes of 27 and 33 it is unclear when this specifically takes place. Hayato in 33 is confused when he meets Keisuke as if it was for the first time. However his dialog could be taken as he's confused that Keisuke specifically is X-Rider and not that he has never met him, only never seen his human form. 27 also shows that a meeting has happened before thus further proving this notion. The movie either takes place after 33 or is best put after 23. It's also of note that This is the re-appearance of Joji Yuki despite his apparent death witch is neither questioned in this movie or his subsequent mentioning in 27.

Main article: Hanuman and the Five Riders

Hanuman and the Five Riders (หนุมาน พบ 5 ไอ้มดแดง - Hanuman pob Har Aimoddaeng - literally "Hanuman and the Five Ant Men") is a tokusatsu superhero film produced in 1974 by Chaiyo Productions of Thailand. Chaiyo's own Kamen Rider film, half of it uses footage from the Five Riders vs. King Dark. Although it has never been released in Japan, Kamen Rider fans in Japan refer to it unofficially as Hanuman and the 5 Kamen Riders (ハヌマーンと5人の仮面ライダー Hanumān to Gonin no Kamen Raidā).

The film teamed the first five Kamen Riders with the Hindu god Hanuman (fresh from his appearance in The 6 Ultra Brothers vs. the Monster Army) against X's adversary King Dark (who appears in his regular giant moving statue form and alternately in a human-sized one), who drinks the fresh blood of young women. He captures a scientist and his girlfriend and threatens to drain her of her blood unless he use his technology to create an army of mutant animal men to confront the five Riders.

Unlike Chaiyo's two official co-productions with Tsuburaya Productions in 1974 (namely The 6 Ultra Brothers Vs. the Monster Army and Jumborg Ace & Giant), this production was unauthorized by Toei Company, Ltd., which produced the Kamen Rider shows. Chaiyo had initially approached Toei, who turned down their plans for producing their own Kamen Rider movie.
