Kamen Rider Ex-Aid (仮面ライダーエグゼイド Kamen Raidā Eguzeido, Masked Rider Ex-Aid) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series. It is the eighteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-seventh series overall. The series started on October 2, 2016, joining Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger in the Super Hero Time line-up after the finale of Kamen Rider Ghost. Starting on February 12, 2017, the series was joined by Uchu Sentai Kyuranger in the Super Hero Time line-up. After the finale of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Build joined Kyuranger in the Super Hero Time line-up.

Why It Rocks

  1. The concept of having a Kamen Rider based on video games as well as being a doctor is interesting and executed really well.
  2. It has an amazing theme song.
  3. It's a big improvement over Kamen Rider Ghost, which was a terrible Kamen Rider season from the previous year.
  4. There are some likable characters such as Emu Hojo, Hiiro Kagami, Taiga Hanaya, Parado, Kiriya Kujo and Kuroto Dan.
  5. It has a few funny moments that don't feel forced into the plot.
  6. Great movies such as Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: True Ending, Another Ending: Brave & Snipe, Another Ending: Para-DX with Poppy and Another Ending: Genm vs. Lazer.
  7. It teamed up with Kamen Rider Build.
  8. It had a decent finale.
  9. It's both aired alongside two shows Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger and Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
  10. It spawned a few internet memes, such as Cronus using the "Pause" ability, which is a reference to Dio Brando using The World to freeze time in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, and Cronus using the "Reset" ability, which referenced Killer Queen: BITE ZA DUSTO's ability in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.

Bad Qualities

  1. There are some unlikable characters such as Nico Saiba.
  2. Some of the jokes tend to fall flat.
  3. It had to air alongside the terrible second season of Kamen Rider Amazons
