Like Power Rangers and the VR Troopers series, Saban’s Masked Rider splices together stock footage from Black RX, as well as the films Kamen Rider ZO and Kamen Rider J, together with newly filmed footage featuring American actors.

While the series was originally commissioned as a spin-off of Power Rangers, Masked Rider was later reformatted to sever links with its sister series due to the declining popularity of Power Rangers at the time.
