  • In Hayase's chapters of GOD'S WAR, he was fond of using other Ishinomori characters as templates for the new characters' designs, as well as referencing moments from other series like Kamen Rider Black and Inazuman. Particular characters he referenced included Ishinomori's "Jun" character as Alain Deneuve, and Junpei from Tarao Bannai as Alain's friend Canet.
    • These two characters (Jun and Junpei) were also used for Hayase's manga-style character designs of Philip and Shotaro Hidari for Kamen Rider W.
