The first of Toho and Konami's [[Series/ChouSeiShinSeries ChouSeiShin trilogy]], ''ChouSeiShinGransazer'' debuted in 2003.

Millions of years ago, the Earth was once a [[{{Precursors}} highly-advanced civilisation]] until the day it was attacked by an alliance of alien races called "Warp Monarch". Though humanity built [[HumongousMecha giant humanoid war machines]] called "Ultra Star Gods" to defend themselves, the civilisation was ultimately defeated by Warp Monarch's superior numbers.

Now in the modern day, the LostTechnology of that precursor race is stirring, [[SuperpowerfulGenetics awakening the dormant DNA of their descendants]] in response to a new threat. Courier Tenma Kudou discovers that he is one of the chosen, [[HenshinHero gaining the power to transform]] into one of the twelve legendary warriors known as the Gransazer.

Like their ancestors, the Gransazer are split into [[ElementalPowers four elemental Tribes]]: Fire, Wind, Earth and Water. As the leader of the reborn Fire Tribe, Tenma (as Sazer Tarious) soon finds both allies and [[TheRival enemies]] in the other three Tribes [[EnemyMine as he struggles to unite them in the face of the alien menace]] that threatens to repeat the genocide of the past. Fortunately he has help, for when three members of the same Tribe unite their powers they can summon their respective Ultra Star God and take the fight to the enemy.

!! This show features examples of:

* AbsenteeActor: Unless needed, all 12 Gransazers don't appear in the same episode. Some are justified that they're all doing separate jobs--Jin working on his fashion line, Akira and Ai working at the hospital--but others aren't excusable.

* BrickJoke: In #7, Go chases on his bike after Tenma (who was hastily delivering blood for a transfusion) and arrives after the surgery is over, completely exhausted and out of breath.
** In #25, Hoshiguchi is shown wearing a wig that gets blown away after he and Mika touch the crystal slab during a flashback. At the final episode, when Mika and Hosiguchi are cleaning the lab, Mika finds it.
* ByThePowerOfGrayskull: "Shochaku!"
* CombiningMecha, HumongousMecha and TransformingMecha: The Chou Sei Shins, who transform from mecha animal to robot, and combine together to form Daisazer.
** In a neat twist, the tribes' four transforming mecha merge with a humanoid to form a dragon-shaped robot instead of a bigger humanoid.
* {{Courier}}: Tenma's main job.
* DisappearedDad: Ai's father. [[spoiler: He's actually Dr. Bear/Professor Wakui.]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: Jin (to Ryouko) and Tappei (to Ai). Ultimately for Jin, [[spoiler: Ryouko marries Naoto as seen in the finale.]]

* {{Fangirl}}: Maki, a friend of Tenma, is a big fan of Naoto.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the beginning of episode 16, Ai is shown sending a text message to someone. Minutes later, Professor Wakui enters Horiguchi's office. [[spoiler: Wakui pulls out a cellphone similar to Ai's and smiles at the note, to note that he's the receiver of the message.]]
* FreudianTrio: Each tribe is composed of one.
* GeodesicCast
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Gender-flipped, the ''only'' girl who actually uses long-ranged weapons is Pisces with a gun. The other shooters are guys: Tarious, Relms and Tawlon.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The Cloud Dragon and the Daisazer.
* InTheBlood: Subverted; it's revealed that the Gransazers, and possibly all humans, are [[spoiler: descendants of the Bosquito. However, it's just [[MaliciousSlander propaganda]] set up by Belzeus]].
* ItsAllMyFault: In #7, Tenma blamed himself for his friend, Maki, put in a critical condition as he had no idea that Karin would go attacking him.
* ItsPersonal: Ai personally wants to take down Lucia [[spoiler: after the latter nearly killed Dr. Wakui/her father and also because she gave the chip to the Guntroller.]]

* {{Precursors}}: Ancient Humanity.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The Impactors. {{Deconstructed}} as they feel as if they have nothing else but their pride. Lucia tried to kill herself via CyanidePill when Ai takes sympathy for her, and Professor Hoshiguki suggests that Logia killed himself to save his own pride.
* RealMenWearPink: Jin (Sazer-Dal) is a fashion designer whose Sazer armor is purple, but that doesn't mean he can't kick ass like his fellow Sazers.
* RefusalOfTheCall: Tenma initially doesn't want to do anything with the summoning of the Gransazers as he believes that it's not going to be part of his fate. He comes back because he states "When someone punches me, I punch back."
** Makoto also was this at first, until Tenma convinces him to fight.
* RecapEpisode: Episode 25 serves as this, explaining the formations of many of the Gransazers and the fights against the villains.
* RousingSpeech: Tenma usually gives these to the members of the Water Tribe, explaining that the Gransazers are fighting together and it's nothing about tribes.
* SkywardScream: #22 has Logia screaming Lucia's name in agony.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: An interesting play: While each tribe has exactly one female Sazer to play the trope straight, the subversion comes when they all got together. The ratio is still the same though.
* SpiceUpTheSubtitles: Happens a lot, especially in regards to Tenma.
* TheStoic: The times Naoto smiles can be counted on one hand.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics
* TakingTheBullet: Subverted. Go tries to do this agaisnt Logia [[spoiler: but Tenma pushes him out of the way. Good thing too...Go would've been '''''obliterated''''' if he wasn't pushed.]]
* TokenRomance: [[spoiler:Naoto and Ryoko, who end up married at the finale.]]
* TransformationTrinket: The Knuckle Riser.
* {{Tsundere}}: Mika is a Type A, mostly around Tenma.

* WesternZodiac: Each Sazer is modeled after a specific sign of the Zodiac.
* WhamLine: Ep 18, for Ai.
-->'''Lucia:''' ''(while gripping onto Professor Wakui)'' Ah, I see. [[spoiler: So you do care for your father's safety.]]
