Powers and AbilitiesEdit

to be added


  • Kotaro is the only Kamen Rider originating from the Showa Period who joins with Samus's party, despite the fact Kamen Rider Black RX ended at the advent of the Heisei Period.
    • Coincidentally, the very first Metroid game was released a year before in Japan, and two months before (in North America) Kamen Rider Black aired. 
  • Kotaro Minami as Kamen Rider BLACK, alongside Wataru Kurenai as Kamen Rider Kiva and Tsukasa Kadoya as Kamen Rider Decade who represent Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations are the three of the six bosses who can outmatch Samus in a battle, the others being Ridley and Mother Brain in the prologue and epilogue of Super Metroid respectively, Dark Samus from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and an SA-X and the Omega Metroid from Metroid Fusion. While Decade is one of the first Kamen Riders to successfully defeat Samus during their first and second encounters (not counting Faiz, Blade, Kabuto, Drive, and Ghost), Kotaro is capable of overwhelming Samus by just dishing out hand-to-hand fighting before finishing her a Rider Punch and Rider Kick.
    • Kotaro is the only Showa Rider who can be fought as a boss.
