Character History


Genius Gamer M

Parad as M during Emu's teenager years.

Parad is the first Bugster to be created, born inside Emu Hojo from his desires of wanting a friend to play games with. Unknown to everyone but Kuroto Dan, Parad's conception inside Emu influenced him into becoming the Genius Gamer, "M."

As M, Parad would use Emu's body and play and win various championships, defeating a new challenger who named herself "Genius Gamer N" as a homage to him. After this challenge, Emu was abducted and operated on by Michihiko Zaizen and Parad was separated from Emu's body. This resulted in Emu returning back to his goal of becoming a doctor.We're Me!?

Despite being separated, Emu was still infected with Parad's Bugster Virus. This allowed Emu to transform using a Gashat without a "compatibility surgery." The side effects of being able to transform without it was that it would stimulate the Parad's Bugster Virus within Emu, causing Emu to evoke mannerisms similar to when he and Parad were one by switching from ( Boku) into ( Ore). In return, some of Emu's personality traits would eventually be evoked within Parad as well, as would later be seen during the death of the Burgermon Bugster.

Zero Day

Start of the Bugster Play

Parad is seen playing a portable version of the Mighty Action X game and is informed by Graphite of a new a new Bugster infection by Graphite. With Graphite proclaiming that they would soon be joined by an influx of comrades, Parad voiced to him his excitement at the prospect of their game field expanding. I'm a Kamen Rider!

As Graphite spread the Bugster virus further, Parad voiced to him that fate was like a puzzle game. When asked by Graphite if he was sure that they should not be acting directly, Parad decided that he might as well introduce himself as he set off. Another Prodigy with No Thank You?

Meeting Graphite's old nemesis, Taiga Hanaya, Parad called off Graphite from his confrontation. Before they took their leave, Parad dared Taiga to clear the most games and become the strongest Kamen Rider. BANG, That Jerk is Coming!

Creating a Genm Lie

Parad Genm

Parad "reveals" himself to the Riders.

When Kuroto Dan is defeated as Kamen Rider Genm by Kiriya Kujo, using his newly acquired Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3, in front of Emu Hojo and Hiiro Kagami to prove his traitorous identity, Parad intervenes. Obscured by the explosion, he puts on Kuroto's belt to give the impression that he is Genm. Emu and Hiiro's trust of Kiriya is destroyed, and Kiriya pretends he had lied to get the Giri Giri Chambara Gashat, not finding it worth it to argue against what they saw. The Reason for Some Lies!

Parad warned Dan that while the Proto Gashats had near limitless potential, using them would ultimately destroy his body. Later on, Parad discovered that Graphite had taken the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat from Dan's office. Men, Fly High! Parad deduced that Dan had allowed Graphite to take the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z so that he would give the Kamen Riders their most challenging fight yet as he went on a rampage, enthusiastically voicing to Dan that he scared him before the CEO set out to deliver the refined Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat to CR. Beat Up the Dragon!

Watching from a distance as Emu initially failed to acquire the co-operation of his fellow Riders, Parad voiced his doubt that they would receive worthy data from this outcome. Dan, however, assured him that they would collect their data eitherway and that they could eventually replace the troublesome doctors with new candidates. Nevertheless, Emu ultimately achieved a collaboration resulting in the four Riders dividing and using the Hunter Gamer together to terminate Graphite. Complimenting Graphite on his performance in spirit, Parad salavaged the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z left behind from his destruction and, with the Hunter Gamer used to its true potential, Dan was able to complete tests and data recording, allowing him to proceed to the next stage. Uneven Doctors!

Dr. Pac-Man holding the three Legend Gamer Gashats

Following the defeat of Michihiko Zaizen, Parad would adopt the alias of "Dr. Pac-Man" himself. He arrived to save Emu from the copies of Kamen Riders Double, OOO and Fourze whom Kamen Rider Genm summoned with the Ganbarizing Gashat, bringing with him the Pac Adventure, Famista and Xevious Legendary Game Gashats. Part. I: Legend Rider Stage

Distracting the Riders with his Gashacon Bugvisor, "Dr. Pac-Man" took Emu away before being confronted by Hiiro Kagami and Taiga Hanaya, both intent on defeating him again while Emu started to trust him. With Genm and his Riders catching up with them, "Dr. Pac-Man" handed a Gashat to each of the three doctor Riders, allowing them to face Genm's Riders, before taking his leave with Genm in pursuit. Ultimately, "Dr. Pac-Man" was caught by Genm who took his helmet off, recognizing his true identity as he presented a fourth Gashat, Taiko no Tatsujin. Part. II: Legend Gamer Stage

Parad Pac-Man

Second Dr. Pac-Man revealed his face

He arrives to give Emu the Taiko no Tatsujin Gashat, only to steal it again with other Gashats that he gave. Later appearing in Dan's hideout, he takes off his mask and reveals himself to viewers. Part. III: Final Legend Stage

Dangerous Zombie

Dan and Parad with DZ

Parad bears witness to Dan's completed Dangerous Zombie.

Waiting at Dan's lair, Parad was amused to discover that Dan had used the data of his own death to complete his new Gashat, Dangerous Zombie, remarking that he was a truly terrifying man. Looking upon the completed Gashat, Parad voiced his enthusiasm at the start of a new game. Who's the Black Kamen Rider?

On Dan's behalf, Parad collected the data of the Level 3 Salty Bugster once it was defeated by the Kamen Riders. Returning to Dan, Parad found him working on his ultimate project, Kamen Rider Chronicle. Christmas Special: Targeting the Silver X mas!

Giving Emu the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat

Parad Emu fate

Parad dares Emu to change his fate.

Parad reacts Level 10

Parad witnesses Emu's transformation into Level 10.

Kuroto Dan is nearly finished with a new, larger Rider Gashat meant for Parad, but it requires more data. Kuroto gives it to Parad and sends him to collect data, but Parad brings up the possibility of one of the Kamen Riders stealing it. Kuroto explains that it would infect them with a lethal amount of the Bugster virus if anyone but Parad were to use it. With this information, Parad gives Emu Hojo the Gashat, telling him to change his fate with it, and telling Emu to show him that he could change his fate again while hidden in a tree. Though the Gashat injected a deadly amount of Bugster Virus into Emu like Kuroto said it would, it mysteriously does not and instead converts into the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat, granting Emu much greater power. Parad is fascinated by this development while Kuroto is angered. Defined Destiny

While Dan was confounded at how Emu used the Gashat, Parad pointed out that he was unique among the Riders, which was what made him so exciting. Dan conceded that the transformation was useful in that it would allow him to create a new Gashat for Parad, who noted that he was to thank along with M, Dan nevertheless vowed to assert his dominance as game master by eliminating Ex-Aid's bootleg game. We're Kamen Riders!

Debut as Kamen Rider Para-DX

Parad receives Gashat Gear Dual

Parad receives the Gashat Gear Dual from Dan.

"Kamen Rider Para-DX Level 50. Let me show you my game. Let's play!"
―Para-DX's proclamation[src]

Kuroto Dan once again creates a larger Rider Gashat for Parad, this time fully finished. Parad decides to "play" it by intruding on a battle between Hiiro, Taiga, and Emu, defeating all three using both of his forms. He initially knew that Ex-Aid wasn't fighting at all when Brave and Snipe attacked him one-sidedly, which "bores" him, telling the attacking Riders to "not be such a killjoy". After defeating Emu, he tells him he'll "play" with him any time. A New Challenger Appears!

He later "plays" with Emu as Ex-Aid Level XX, assuming the form of Para-DX Puzzle Gamer Level 50, fighting alongside Kuroto as Genm Level X. Upon easily defeating Ex-Aid Level XX, he mocks Emu that "that is all he's got" until Revol shoots him in the back, claiming that the Bugster will attain his true form by defending Emu. This angers Parad to the point of claiming that "non-playable characters aren't that smart to begin with", forcing him to assume Fighter Gamer Level 50. Genm attempts to deter Para-DX by saying that Revol "is not his opponent", but Para-DX refuses to listen and claims that he will "crush anyone who hinders his fun". He would later proceed to destroy Revol with a variant of the Knock Out Critical Smash, but not before Revol futilely attempts to retreat. The Paradox of Defeating M

Hostility Against Kuroto

Parad talks burgers

Parad discusses Ju Ju Burger with Dan.

When he fought Emu as Para-DX Puzzle Gamer, he noticed Ex-Aid wasn't using Mighty Brothers for their battle. When Ex-Aid revealed that he left it at home, along with his other Gashats, save for Mighty Action X, Para-DX complained that it was "lame as hell". However, he did express some interest when he saw the new Level 4 Ju Ju Burger Gashat, stating that he'd never thought he'd see a Level 4 Gashat. As Ex-Aid was helping Burgermon escape, he said to himself that things were getting interesting before making his leave too. Back at Kuroto's hideout, he expressed that he was surprised that someone else other than Kuroto could make a Gashat, with Kuroto explaining that he initially didn't have enough workers to finish it in time and shelved it. But now that the Gashat was completed, Kuroto claimed that he needed to reclaim it. Later, he teamed up with Genm to take the new Gashat for Kamen Rider Chronicle, but was shocked when Genm murdered Burgermon in cold blood. After returning to the hideout, he asked if killing Burgermon was necessary, stating that he thought Kuroto just wanted to reclaim the Gashat. Kuroto stated that he can't allow games without his permission to be made as the Game Master. Parad then emotionlessly said Kuroto should just delete the game's data, but Kuroto decided not to since he was the one who proposed it in the first place, telling Parad to not lump the Gashats and Bugsters together. After which, he revealed that he needed the Gashats to create the world of Kamen Rider Chronicle. A Nonstandard BURGSTER?

Parad and Dan reacts

Spited by Dan, Parad sees Emu consumed by the Bugster virus.

He would eventually have enough of Kuroto's god complex and keeps his hope of defeating Emu. Just as Kuroto, as Genm Zombie Gamer Level X, was about to threaten Emu by handing over all his Gashats, Parad, as Kamen Rider Para-DX Fighter Gamer Level 50, punched Genm in the back to save Emu. He then proclaimed about his reason of killing Revol: He was simply playing the game by the rules and the Bugster race as a whole lives to compete, not to survive. Para-DX then proceeded to beat Genm senselessly before transforming into Puzzle Gamer Level 50 and using three Muscular Energy Items before finishing off Genm with a Perfect Critical Combo to knock him out of his transformation. Kuroto would later punish him for his defiance by telling Emu that he is the first man to be infected with the Bugster virus as Parad lifts him by his jacket, knowing that he was too late to stop this revelation. The Truth Exposed Seeing the Game Disease overwhelm Emu, Parad promptly let go of Kuroto and vanished. Parad would later witness from a distance Genm's defeat at the hands of Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50, seeing that "M" had returned back to Emu. A Sudden Fantasy!?

As a test to see how Hiiro could handle the power of a Level 50 Gashat. Parad transforms into Para-DX Puzzle Gamer Level 50 while Hiiro transforms into Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50. The two appear to be evenly matched even after Para-DX assumes Fighter Gamer Level 50, but as Para-DX was about to finish Brave off, Brave holds his chest in pain thus making Para-DX hesitate to deal the final blow as there is no honor in finishing off an exhausted opponent. Parad cancels his transformation and tells an exhausted Hiiro that Level 50 is too much for him, before leaving in hopes of being able to "play" with him again sometime. He is then seen back at Dan's hideout, telling Dan to complete his project: Kamen Rider Chronicle. Dan states that Parad knows nothing about the power of Level X, in which Dan refers to as "the unknown". Take Off Against the Direction of the Wind!

When Parad challenges Taiga in their Level 50 forms, as Taiga is now even to pit against Parad thanks to his experience with Proto Gashat's side effects 5 years ago during the first Zero Day, Parad also warned Taiga to look out for Kuroto's other plans relating to his Level X upgrade and Kamen Rider Chronicle before departing. Chasing the Mystery!

Still looking for thrills, Parad would confront Snipe and Brave again, keeping the two from handling the latest Bugster outbreak. Parad left as soon as the victim was revealed to be Kuroto, but continued to observe Genm from a distance.Engineered History!

Killing Kuroto

"He's under the delusion that he's God. He's just an irritating guy who created us Bugsters to use as his game pieces. So don't worry about him. His mind and body are already as good as dead. Just because you dealt him a finishing blow, doesn't mean you've taken his life. Can you really forgive the man who took Lazer's life? If you don't defeat the last boss...there will be no happy ending for the world. Use your power...and eliminate Genm."
―Parad points out to Emu that Kuroto is now a shell of a man and asks him to eliminate the latter once and for all.[src]

"Don't be so boring...M. The game can't end like this. Losers deserve an ending befitting a loser."
―Parad prepares to execute Kuroto in front of the CR doctors.[src]

"Good work...Game Master. Kamen Rider Chronicle will be mine."
―Parad tells Kuroto that he is no longer useful to him as he leaves the latter to die.[src]

Kuroto infected DZ Virus

Parad re-infected Kuroto with the Dangerous Zombie Bugster Virus as his ultimate price.

Much to his joy, CR was able to create a new Gashat to counter Genm, but was disappointed to see Emu spare Kuroto's life in favor of the former CEO getting punished for his crimes. Parad found Emu soon after and attempted to convince him to kill Kuroto, reasoning that it wouldn't count as killing to finish off the twisted husk that Genm was. When Emu spared Genm's life again (albeit removing his Rider compatibility), Parad took matters into his own hands. Pretending to help Kuroto up, he quickly punched him to the ground before giving him the "ending" he deserved: a lethal dose of Bugster virus from his own Bugvisor. Parad taunted and thanking the "Game Master" that he would take Kamen Rider Chronicle for himself before leaving the doomed Kuroto to die. Later, Parad looks at the still incomplete Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat and exclaimed that he'll complete the game.To The Max, Dead or Alive!

Chou Super Hero Taisen

As Kamen Rider Para-DX, Parad joined in the Chou Shocker Taisen, fighting in a temporary alliance with his Rider adversaries as well as Sentai RangersIcon-crosswiki against the army of Shocker from the Game World. Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Chou Super Hero Taisen

Completing Kamen Rider Chronicle

Parad was later seen in the basement of Genm Corp, where he use the Bugsters data inside of the Gashacon Bugvisor to revive them, including Graphite. Parad explained to a confused Graphite that he can be revived anytime since Graphite is a Perfect Bugster which even Kuroto didn't know, which Graphite smirks bitterly while muttering that his death was one of his puzzles. Parad then said that the final component of Kamen Rider Chronicle is already on their way, and it turned out to be none other than Poppy, whom recently got brainwashed by the new CEO of Genm Corp, Ren Amagasaki. Parad greeted her warmly, which Poppy kindly responded back.

After all the Bugsters had assembled, Parad took the incomplete Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat and activated it. The Bugsters except Parad and Ren were absorbed into the title screen, with Poppy and Graphite filling up the remaining two blank spaces. The Gashat is then finally completed with its official logo. Parad happily exclaimed that the game of Kamen Rider Chronicle had started.Go Together, Embracing Your Ambitions!

Parad appeared before Emu again after the latter had been robbed of his Gashats by some of the Ride Players. Welcoming Emu to the ultimate game, Parad transformed into Para-DX. Killing all the players with ease, Parad revealed to Emu his hatred of humanity, and Kamen Rider Chronicle was simply a means to wipe out humanity. Start the New Game!

Hijacking Emu and Achieving Level Max

After Poppy was restored to her original self by Ex-Aid's reprogramming ability, she began to regain memories belonging to the host she had taken over. Still asserting that Poppy is an ally of the Bugsters, Parad takes her back to Genm Corp. As she questions why the Bugsters and humans should be fighting each other, Parad threatens her, saying that she should be enjoying the game more.

The next day, as Brave, Snipe, and Ride-Player Nico attack Poppy, Parad demands Emu to have a proper duel with him, despite Emu being more focused on saving Poppy, much to Parad's disappointment. As Emu manages to save Poppy and clear her game without needing to destroy her, Parad later appears, stating that Emu is him before possessing Emu. Beyond Your Identity

Using Emu's body to transform into Para-DX, Parad overpowers Brave and Snipe before heading back to Genm Corp, still in Emu's body. Parad then leaves Emu, taking out a Gamer Driver (presumably Kuroto's) and attempts to level up, but fails as the Gamer Driver can only be used by humans. Parad then drags Emu outside, revealing that he was born from Emu's desires, and that they have been connected all this while. Emu then realizes that Parad was his own Bugster, as Parad possesses Emu yet again, transforming in Ex-Aid Level XX. Parad, now as Level XX R, challenges Emu as Level XX L to a duel. Emu was not willing to fight, even after Parad gave him the Gashacon Key Slasher and the Maximum Mighty X Gashat as a "handicap".

Parad later has Emu remember the moment when he first learnt he had game illness. Emu was supposed to have died back then, but it was Parad who gave his life a continue by taking over Emu and releasing his stress, thus hitting Emu with the hard truth that his fate was ultimately in Parad's hands in the end. Parad challenges Emu to show that he can change his own fate, finally spurring Emu to fight and unleashing a Maximum Mighty Critical Finish onto Parad. At first it seems that Parad had lost, but Parad still has one trick up his sleeve: thanks to Ex-Aid's reprogramming ability, Parad now has Emu's human DNA imprinted on him, finally enabling him to use a Gamer Driver and transform into Para-DX Level 99. After managing to overpower Brave and Snipe, and even Ex-Aid Level 99, Parad takes over Emu's body once again, leaving the scene. We're Me!?

Strongest VS Strongest!


No one can read his mind from his innocent smile. He has a great obsession with games and is often seen playing on handheld consoles. And true to his obsession Parad treats all matters like one and operates in a more relaxed and playful manner unlike Graphite. As such, he take joys in observing the event before him unfold and acts in more of a general oversight role while, Graphite tends to take care of the fieldwork. However, despite his usual cheerful attitude, Parad can be serious enough, to the point that Graphite himself can't help but to obey him. However, unlike Graphite, who is loyal to the race of Bugsters, Parad didn't hesitate to trick and use his comrade to collect more data from the fights with the Kamen Riders, as a part of his former collusion with Kuroto Dan. He didn't even seem to be sad or remorseful when Graphite is killed because of his plan. Since he had already reach a perfected form, Parad can just simply revive him again, which he does eventually.

Parad, despite his playful and fun-loving behavior, can be provoked if anyone interrupts him while he is having fun fighting, as shown when the Revol Bugster shoots him from behind, which he responds by just quickly destroying Revol, much to Kuroto's dismay.The Paradox of Defeating M However, he won't kill any Bugsters that don't attack him at all, nor provoke him, like Graphite and Burgermon. After seeing Kuroto destroying Burgermon and Motors (when the latter is used as a tool), he would eventually drive a wedge between their partnership. He reveals to have a code of honor amongst the gaming rules and his own species, such as disliking of unfairness like how Kuroto sees and treated the Bugster species as nothing more than the tools for his own ambition unfairly. Eventually, having lost his patience with Kuroto and his hubris, Parad murders him in cold blood, all while he promises to finish Kamen Rider Chronicle by in his own way.

After completing Kamen Rider Chronicle, Parad reveals his contempt towards humanity for their arrogance, considering Kuroto's treatment towards his kind as expendable pawns. His plan for Kamen Rider Chronicle contradicts from Kuroto, Parad uses the game as a means to wipe off humanity.

Appearances: Ex-Aid Episode 29





  • CR:
    • Emu Hojo: Parad is very interested in Emu for unknown reasons. He shows to 'help' Emu in many ways, including giving him the blank version of Mighty Brothers XX Gashat. He also showing joy upon seeing his recovery from fully being M. The sole reason of him helping Emu is that he wants to be the one who defeats Emu. There are subtle implications that he sees Emu as a friend (or at least a special exception of some sort) due to their competitive natures. The feeling is not reciprocated by Emu. Beyond Your Identity
    • Hiiro Kagami: Parad's opinion on Hiiro is mostly unknown, but he was willing to back off from battling him when it was clear to him Hiiro was too exhausted from the strain of Level 50.
    • Taiga Hanaya: Parad was truly impressed by Taiga's combat skills when both of them had a tie while fighting each other and finishing the fight with their Kimewaza Finishers. He also gave a helpful warning to Taiga about Genm trying to break the Level concept with the true power of Level X before he left the scene.
    • Kuroto Dan: Parad was once allied with Dan for unknown reasons and given numerous Gashats for his use. After Dan had killed Burgermon Bugster in cold blood, Parad left him. Though he still stayed close to Dan in hopes of looking into the completion of Kamen Rider Chronicle, Dan tells him that he "understands nothing" about the data of death that is the Dangerous Zombie Gashat, which, despite being Level 10, is also Level X, also called "The Unknown". Now realizing that Kuroto's recent plan relating to Kamen Rider Chronicle project is a far much more potential threat to humans and Bugsters alike, Parad wanted him dead for good. Eventually, Parad had a change in his mind. He does kill Kuroto for good, but promised that he will finish Kamen Rider Chronicle his way.

Behind the scenes


  • Parad is portrayed by Shouma Kai (甲斐 翔真 Kai Shōma). His suit actor as Kamen Rider Para-DX is Kazuya Okada (岡田 和也 Okada Kazuya).


  • Both his name and Rider designation are derived from the word "paradox" (パラドックス Paradokkusu). His Rider name is even pronounced similarly to said word, though without the sokuon () katakana.


  • The design of his pants are reminiscent of pixels from retro video games.
  • Parad's clothing and enigmatic personality is similar to Kai from Kamen Rider Den-O and EnterIcon-crosswiki from Tokumei Sentai Go-BustersIcon-crosswiki.
    • His clothing's coloration is also similar to that of Genm's color scheme, even though he only posed as him instead of actually transforming into Genm.
    • Coincidentally, Parad's actor, Shouma Kai, shares his name with the character Kai as well.
  • Kamen Rider Para-DX is the first Ex-Aid Rider to not have a gamepad like Rider Gauge in any of his default forms, instead only having one in his upgraded Level 99 form.
    • Kamen Rider Para-DX is also the first Ex-Aid Rider to not have any of the basic Level 1 to Level 3 forms, instead skipping straight to Level 50 instead.
  • Parad as Para-DX Fighter Gamer bears some resemblance to Ex-Aid and Genm, though his "hair" has more spikes compared to them. The resemblance is played even further with the appearance of Para-DX's Level 99 form, with the visor and "hair-spike" design" being very similar to Ex-Aid's, only that Para-DX has double the number of hair-spikes. If proven true, this furthers the idea that Parad/Para-DX is meant to be a foil to Emu/Ex-Aid as hinted at various points in the show.
    • His Puzzle Gamer form's helmet also has a slight, but vague, resemblance to Brave's helmet. Along with a more clear resemblance to one of Gentaro Kisaragi's hairstyles, if exaggerated with it's length.
    • Incidentally, the color scheme of Para-DX's Level 99 form is the negative of the color scheme of Ex-Aid's Level XX forms.
  • The change of helmet while switching forms is similar to the "Face Change" of ShurikengerIcon-crosswiki from Ninpu Sentai HurricanegerIcon-crosswiki.
    • Incidentally, to an extent, Para-DX's Fighter Gamer form and Shurikenger Fire Mode both share elements related to fire.
  • Parad is also similar to Alain as they were first introduced as generals to their respective factions and get to become Kamen Riders themselves.
    • Also like Alain, rather than using a Henshin Belt like the other riders, he uses a Henshin device much like Alain's Mega Ulorder.
  • Kamen Rider Para-DX Fighter Gamer's hands are covered by punching gauntlets much like Kamen Rider Knuckle Kurumi Arms and Kamen Rider Ghost Newton Damashii.
  • His Rider designation, Para-DX, can be a wordplay for both "paramedic" and "diagnosis" (often abbreviated as "DX").
    • It is also an abbreviation for "Deluxe", referring to certain first-class toys.
    • Parad's Rider title being Para-DX could also be a reference to his nature as an unusual Bugster: Beyond (Para-) Diagnosis (DX).
    • The first name basis for Para-DX's main forms are terminologies in fighting game:
      • Perfect Puzzle: Indicated the player's victory without having their health gauge drained.
      • Knock Out Fighter: Indicated the opponent or a player's defeat.
  • Currently, Parad is the only rider to have two base starting forms, though Puzzle Gamer Level 50 is sometimes shown first in some media.
    • It is also shown when the Gashat Gear Dual is put into the Gamer Driver.
  • Like Ex-Aid when he changes to Level 2, Para-DX says "Dai Henshin" when changing forms.
  • Parad's interest towards Emu as well his enjoyment of fighting the latter is similar to N-Daguva-Zeba of Kamen Rider Kuuga.
    • Unlike Daguva though, Parad doesn't like unnecessary bloodshed to a certain extent, preferring to keep his opponents alive, and isn't completely heartless to even his own kind.
    • He also has a code of honor amongst his own kind, making him similar to Heart.
    • Despite his preference of keeping his foes alive, Parad enjoyed massacring the Ride Players playing Kamen Rider Chronicle. Not unlike Daguva enjoying the countless slaughter of humans in the infamous Gurongi game, the Gegeru.
    • Para-DX and Ex-Aid having somewhat similar faces in their final forms could be another possible parallel to Daguva and Kuuga.
  • Parad is the only Rider to have two level designations depending on how he uses his Gashat.
  • Para-DX's Perfect Knock Out Gamer Level 99 is similar to Paradox Roidmude's Supreme Evolution State as he awakens and combines the past Roidmude 108. Likewise, the fusion of Perfect Puzzle and Knock Out Fighter and his name are shared with Paradox Roidmude as well.
  • Parad's transformation to Para-DX in Perfect Puzzle is also similar to the Riders from the Kamen Rider Blade series.
    • Para-DX's primary weapon in Level 99, the Gashacon Parabragun, also shares a similar name to Blade's main weapon, the Blay Rouzer.
      • However, the modes are akin to Kunai Gun (sans Kunai Mode)
  • When using the Gamer Driver to transform, Parad makes a pose similar to Emu, but inverted. Which could be a reference to his relationship with Emu.
    • This same pose is also similar to the pose Kamen Rider Ryuki makes during his Final Vent.
