Of the twelve colors that have been used (Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink, Black, White, Silver, Gold, Orange, Violet and Gray), pink is the only one reserved solely for women. Red ([[spoiler:Hime [=ShinkenRed=]]]), blue, yellow, green ([[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger Midoninger]]), white, silver, gold ([=DekaGold=]), and [[spoiler:violet (the second [=KyoryuViolet=])]] have been used by both genders.

* RookieRedRanger: Naturally, considering that the trope comes from ''Franchise/PowerRangers''.
** Not really, Dairanger was the first of either series to feature this trope. Lost Galaxy was the first Power Ranger series to feature this with it already also been featured in Gingaman as well. In Space subverts this trope though.

In Space subverts this trope though.''Lost Galaxy''.

* OnlyOneName: Generally used to mark characters who are outsiders to modern day Japan, like the Zyurangers, Timerangers (except, obviously, for Tatsuya and Naoto), or Goseigers. Exceptions to this rule include the Maskmen, the Dairangers (who use titles rather than surnames, e.g. Tenkasei[[note]]Heaven's Fire Star[[/note]] Ryo) and the Toqgers (whose case can be chalked up to their LaserGuidedAmnesia; their full names - except for Akira's, who was always known - eventually get revealed toward the end of the series as they recover their memories).

* TitleScream: A tradition that began with ''Goggle-V'', although they don't scream the ''full'' title until ''Bioman''. From then on, prior to ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'', only ''Kakuranger'' averted this, with something we could call Title Sing (as it is the first line of the opening theme).

* ShowyInvincibleHero: This varies from era to era, but especially in recent years, it's common to see the team getting through entire battles without even getting a single scratch until around episode 3.

* DancingTheme: In recent years, it has become customary to have an ending theme with the Rangers dancing to it. Although the practice isn't exactly new, dating back as far as ''Megaranger'' at least and only seeing intermittent use from ''Dekaranger'' onward.

''Super Sentai'' is usually contrasted with ''Franchise/KamenRider'', another {{tokusatsu}} franchise by the same corporation, with a similar deal but no mecha and far more serious stories. The two franchises met (canonically) on-screen for the first time in an episode of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' featuring the Shinkenger team, with Decade making a brief cameo in a Shinkenger episode beforehand.

Since ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', the two franchises have also crossed over in TV specials to promote the respective movies.

* ArtifactTitle: The Super Sentai arcade game ''[[VideoGame/SuperSentaiBattleDiceO Dice-O]]'', so named because each Ranger's attacks were represented by six-sided dice. When the game was upgraded during ''Gokaiger''[='s=] run, the dice were replaced by a roulette shaped like a ship's wheel.

** MechaExpansionPack? More and more recent series have "auxiliary Zords" that can replace limbs to add new powers. Every year starting around 2000, both shows tend to feature a wide range of individual animals or vehicles who would start doing this with the base combined mecha. At times like this, instead of "'''''GATTAI!'''''" (combination), get used to "'''''BUSOU!'''''" (armament.) This began with ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger'' whose claim was that there were '''one hundred''' potential mechas (only a quarter ended up in the show, but others were designed and planned). Once they acquire enough of these, they usually end up combining together to form a second complete mecha such as [=DaiTenkuu=] in ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''/the Samurai Battlewing in ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai''; or the Dual Drive Megazord of ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' (presented as a 'quick and dirty' emergency combination of the spare vehicles once too many of the usual vehicles had been damaged). Sometimes they ''all'' pile onto the main mecha at once. Also, some SixthRanger mecha do this with the combined robot of the other Rangers.
*** Parodied in ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''/''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' when the Origami, in their emblem forms, attempt to "combine" by stacking one on top of the other. The formation isn't very effective.
** A rarer variant of this occurs when the Red Ranger's Zord can change into a humanoid robot, which then forms the Megazord by "wearing" the rest of the team's Zords as armor. So far there are only two examples: ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger''[='s=] Dairenoh (AKA the [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Thunder Megazord]]) and ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters''[='s=] Go-Buster[=Oh=].

* SixthRanger: Along with ''Power Rangers'', TropeNamer. A once-a-year tradition that began with ''Zyuranger'', although ''J.A.K.Q.'' and ''Liveman'' both featured additional members introduced mid-series, while ''Bioman'' and ''Maskman'' experimented with the idea of a sixth member in the form of a OneShotCharacter. Some of the more recent shows that begin with just three members on the team (such as ''Hurricaneger'' and ''Gekiranger'') have more than one additional warrior in order to round out a team of five. At some points it gets crazy; ''Hurricaneger'' ends up getting a sixth member anyway, the fifth member of ''Abaranger'' is counted as a sixth due to showing up at the usual time for a sixth to appear and joining really late, and ''Go-Onger'' has two official sixth rangers and, as of now, is unique in that regard, as other teams with more rangers choose one to be the sixth and make the others extra rangers, most notably ''Dekaranger'', ''Magiranger'', and ''Kyoryuger''.
