to be added



  • This episode aired on NET along with Kamen Rider V3 episode 8, Watch Out, V3! Beware the Terrifying Buzzsaw.
  • Jiro easily defeats Saburo in this episode showing that he can, perhaps easily, defeat Hakaider if he wanted to. It should also be noted that Jiro held back to not severely injure him.
  • Hakaider has shown that he has no qualms in killing a small child if it's to kill Jiro.


  • The police and Mitsuko have shown themselves to be quite clueless about how strong Jiro is in this episode as they both thought that a few police officers would be able to capture or kill him when it`s clearly not that easy. It's doubtful that any normal human being would even have a chance of defeating him without help.
  • It's doubtful that Jiro would have been that affected by Brown Angler Fish`s flamethrower as he clearly showed himself to be durable enough withstand heavy firepower with little to no difficulty.
  • None of the kids seem to tell the police about Jiro's heroism or Hakaider and DARK.
