Continuity and Placement
- Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: The dates mentioned on Hiiro's airplane ticket (February 21) and on Satsuki's patient bed (February 20) place it between episodes 19 and 20.
- Kamen Rider Ryuki: It can't be placed after the true finale of the series because Takeshi Asakura mentioned his revival as being recent (which ignores the time restoration in Ryuki's finale as well as his later appearances before this special) and referenced a certain girl, who was mentioned only in Kamen Rider Ryuki: Episode Final.

- This special features 2 Ryuki Riders, Ouja and Tiger. Interestingly, this year marks the 15th anniversary since the premiere of Kamen Rider Ryuki.
- While Takashi Hagino previously reprised his role in a voice only capacity in Kamen Rider Decade, this marks the first in-the-flesh appearance of Takeshi Asakura since the conclusion of Ryuki.
- Additionally, the special's title contains the word "Survive", an important theme in Ryuki, being the name of its primary Rider Power-Up form and part of the season's tagline, "If you don't fight, you won't survive." Asakura himself even said to Hiiro that "if you don't fight, you will die."
- First appearance of Foundation X since Kamen Rider Fourze the Movie: Everyone, Space is Here!.
- It also features an appearance by King Dark, though he is revealed to be just a hologram used by the Foundation X agent.
- It is currently unknown why Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast is "revived" in this special since there is no proof about Kosuke's death in the main timeline. It is possible that it may have been the Magic Land counterpart who was wiped from existence after Magic Land disappeared, though in either case, Beast is the only heroic Rider to appear as a "villain" in this special, counting Sasword's villainous role as the Scorpio Worm.
- With the special featuring the "Beast Rider Squad", it's possible including a Rider already named "Beast" was simply for this connection.
- Given Foundation X's involvement, it is possible that this Kamen Rider Beast is an energy construct duplicate of the original. This was done previously by Foundation X in the Movie War films when they made duplicates of the Horoscope Zodiarts and other Kamen Rider villains.
- Interestingly and ironically, Toshiki Seto (the actor of Hiiro) had said his favorite Kamen Rider is Ouja.
- Ouja, Sasword, and Dark Kiva had previously appeared together as villains in D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4.
- The scene where Asakura eats mackerel fish is a reference to Choukou Senshi Changéríon episode 10 Not Mackerel! (サバじゃねぇ！ Saba Ja nee!), which is a popular meme in Japan.
- The main hero of this show, Changéríon, was also played by the same actor of Asakura.
- Ouja using Sasword and Beast as a shield to defend himself from Brave Level 4's attack is a callback to episode 19 of Ryuki, where Ouja uses Kamen Rider Gai as a shield to defend himself from Zolda's Final Vent.
- As of this special, Satsuki and Mizuki's full names are revealed to be Satsuki Ogimachi and Mizuki Mizoguchi.
