Comparisons with Episode Final

  • In the series, it's revealed that Shiro accepted the mirror version of Yui's offer to revive her real world counterpart; in the movie, it's Yui who accepts her mirrored version's offer for extended life (with Shiro not around).
  • In this episode, after realizing that Yui was already dead, her body shattered and soon fades away. In the movie, instead of fading away, Yui died in front of her brother as her time has just reached its limit. Realizing that Yui is already gone, Shiro forces Shinji and Ren to continue fighting so Yui can be saved, while the movie depicts Shiro screaming at his failure to save his sister's life and fading away in the process.
  • After Kitaoka decides to retire from being a Rider, he asks Reiko out to lunch. In this episode, we can see Kitaoka's hands start to shake, indicating that his illnesses is finally reaching its final stage. But in the movie, we can see Kitaoka coughing up blood as the result of the illnesses he suffered. Kitaoka finally died 2 episodes later in this series, but he survives in the movie (or it's not seen/alluded to).
    • Unlike the movie version, Kitaoka wants to settle things with Asakura one last time, only to be replaced by Goro. In the movie version, Asakura was killed by Femme during his battle in the Mirror World.
  • Both Ryuki and Knight are seen fighting against Raydragoons on the ground of the city. In the movie version, right before the end credits, both Ryuki and Knight battle a bunch of Raydragoons and Hydragoons in the air, also in the city.
