Having a presence in tokusatsu, manga, and anime, Kikaider has had several parodies and references in pop culture.

Choujinki MetalderIcon-crosswiki



Violent Spirit Top Gunder

Top Gunder.

MetalderIcon-crosswiki's appearance is reminiscent of Kikaider in that the left half of him is red and the other blue. Kikaider's outer shell is half-blue and half-red because of his incomplete conscience circuit (if it was complete he would only be blue, as blue signifies "good" in the Japanese culture. while red represents "evil"). Metalder is different in that his left side is complete and his right one has exposed circuits.

There is also Violent Spirit Top GunderIcon-crosswiki, who started as Metalder's enemy. He can be thought of as Metalder's version of Hakaider, Kikaider's rival and anti-hero.

Kamen Rider WIcon-crosswiki

Kamen Rider Double, Kikaider style


Like Metalder, Kamen Rider DoubleIcon-crosswiki's HeatTrigger Half Change is also reminiscent of Kikaider. However, while Kikaider's left side his red and his right side is blue, HeatTrigger's right side is red and his left side is blue like Kikaider 01.

Kill la Kill

Hakaider La Kill

In episode 18, Into The Night, the Life Fibers gain control of the students at the academy. Once under mind control their brains become visible, giving them a resemblance to Hakaider.

Hikari Sentai MaskmanIcon-crosswiki

In episode 38Icon-crosswiki of the series, the team gets sent back in time to prevent TakeruIcon-crosswiki from being erased. The younger Takeru is shown in a flashback wearing a homemade version of Jiro's costume and performing his transformation pose before jumping off a roof and hurting himself.
