** Group of humanoid robots to giant robot? This is perhaps the least-seen scheme, but it happens. The Shogun Zords/Ginat Beast Generals were all humanoid and formed the Shogun Megazord/Muteki Daishogun, and the Turbo Rescuezords/Victory Rescue Vehicles were like Franchise/{{Transformers}} (vehicle-to-humanoid transformation) as well as being able to make Rescue Megazord/VRV Robo. [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Super Zeo Megazord]]/[[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger OhBlocker]] and [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Titan Megazord]]/[[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger MagiKing]] even managed to have completely symmetrical formations rather than the Voltron-style one-on-each-side. You may choose to count the times Megazords combine into bigger Megazords, but it's rare for it to ''truly'' work that way (instead, the two Megazords' component Zords can recombine and make a larger formation.)

** 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. Sometimes they ''all'' pile onto the main mecha at once. Also, some SixthRanger mecha do this with the combined robot of the other Rangers.

* OnlyOneName: Generally used to mark characters who are outsiders to modern day Japan, like the Zyurangers, Kakurangers, Timerangers (except, obviously, for Tatsuya and Naoto), Goseigers or Zyuohgers (again, with the exceptions of Yamato and Misao). 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).

''Super Sentai'' is usually contrasted with ''Franchise/KamenRider'', another {{tokusatsu}} franchise by the same corporation. 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. Other crossovers between the two franchises have included ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiSuperHeroTaisen'', ''Film/KamenRiderXSuperSentaiXSpaceSheriffSuperHeroTaisenZ'', ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'', and ''Film/SuperHeroTaisenGPKamenRider3''. Since ''Series/ResshaSentaiToQger'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', the two franchises have also crossed over in TV specials to promote the respective movies.

** Played straight, believe it or not... of the twelve colors that have been used (Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink, Black, White, Silver, Gold, Orange, Violet and Gray) as of Zyuohger, only ''gray'' has yet to be used both genders. Specifically:

** While the franchise had both, male and female White Rangers, only females tend to actually have the word "White" in their codenames. All the male White Rangers have fancier codenames such as Abare Killer, Deka Break and Geki Chopper. The only exception so far is [[Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger the 40th installment's Zyuoh Tiger]].

* SuperRobotGenre: Inspired by ''Series/SpiderManJapan'' and started with ''Series/BattleFeverJ'', Super Sentai would carry on the tradition of each team of rangers piloting {{Combining Mecha}} against giant monsters every time they are destroyed in their smaller forms.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the ''[[VideoGame/SuperSentaiBattleDiceO Dice-O]]'' video game, normally using rangers from different teams in a FinishingMove results in random quotes and grunts from those rangers taking the place of the usual phrases used during the finishimg move. If you use the intended team, you'll get the quotes. If you mix up the order of the rangers from the usual one... they'll still use the quotes, but they'll be said by different rangers compared to what usually happens in the show. See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkKw0nKH2II these]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOCxtpUQxHM variations]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3QMpNeHwyk of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEopVzfqjHw the]] [[Series/JAKQDengekitai Big Bomber]] for an example of this in action.
** In the same vein, the [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokai Galleon Buster]] is a special card that can be used by any team; the animations are the same regardless, but each character uses their own personal Ranger Key.

* WasOnceAMan: A few series, like Dairanger and Gekiranger, have the monsters be former humans who can take on monster form as a martial arts technique. Unsurprisingly, this does not carry over to Power Rangers.
