This is a list of collectable items that were created and distributed as part of the promotions for release of any game in the Strider series.

Strider Hiryu 1&2 Limited Edition Poster (ストライダー飛竜1&2 限定ポスター)
A limited edition poster offered by Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation through their "Dengeki Store" shop. This poster was made with high-quality materials, and was thus very expensive.
Strider Hiryu 1&2 Postcard (ストライダー飛竜1&2 ポストカード)
A postcard for the PlayStation version of Strider 2 was given as a purchase bonus for those who bought the game through the Japanese store "Messe Sannoh" (メッセサンオー).
Original Postcards (オリジナルポストカード)
During the 2013 Tokyo Game Show, postcards for the original Strider, Strider 2 and the 2014 Strider were given as a gift for those who tried the PlayStation 3 version of Strider in the Capcom Booth at the convention. A few of the 2014 Strider postcards were later given as gifts to Western fans through Capcom-Unity.
A set of telephone cards for the first Strider were produced by Gamest and sold through their publisher Shinseisha. This set includes one telephone card with original art, depicting Hiryu in the Amazon stage.
A set of telephone cards recreating art from Strider 2 were produced by Capcom and given away during the game's 1999 AM Show appearance. The set was later reprinted for the 2005 Tokyo Game Show event and put up for sale in Capcom's online shop.
A telephone card for the PlayStation port was another purchase bonus when bought through the Messe Sannoh store.
A replica of Hiryu's red scarf marked with the 2014 Strider's logo, this item was a gift for people attending the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, where the game was first announced. Attendees were also encouraged to pose wearing it and holding a real life replica of Hiryu's Cypher sword.
Strider 2 T-shirt
A T-shirt bearing official artwork from Strider 2 was offered through Capcom's online store.
Strider Hiryu Original T-shirt (ストライダー飛竜オリジナルTシャツ)
A set of T-shirts done as part of a collaboration with the brand Mukashi-Mukashi (むかしむかし) were given as a gift for 50 players who have bought the digital version of Strider for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360. The winners were chosen in a lottery, and each console presented a different T-shirt design. Later in April, the three T-shirt models went up for sale in both Mukashi-Mukashi and e-Capcom's online sites for a limited time.
Strider Hiryu Shitajiki Gamest Gift (ストライダー 飛竜 下敷き ゲーメスト特典)
A "shitajiki" (lit. "under sheet") is a plastic pencilboard for writing, very commonly used in merchandising and coming with imagery from several sources, ranging from celebrities to anime and manga. Since these often have a single print run, they also become hard-sought collector's item among enthusiasts. A shitajiki for the first Strider was produced by the Japanese magazine Gamest and sold through publisher Shinseisha.
Strider Hiryu Prize Note (ストライダー飛竜 プライスノート)
A notebook handled out as a gift during the first game's AM Show appearance.

Original button badges sold by Capcom at certain event locations. These came in two different designs based off official artwork.

The text in the envelope is Hiryu's response to Tong Pooh's threats in both Strider 2 and the 2014 Strider, calling her a "whipped dog" ("servant of her masters" in English)
