* ''Anime/ActionHeroineCheerFruits'' is an {{Homage}} to {{Toku}} in general, with Japanese cities producing [[ShowWithinAShow stage shows]] with female heroes in order to bolster tourism. The main characters' show ''Seika Senshi Hina-Nectar'' is more specifically inspired by Super Sentai (five-color team, Red is the leader, AloofAlly SixthRanger with unique costume) with little touches from the MagicalGirl genre.

Superheroes, Japanese style. The word can be translated as "Task Force" or "Squadron." Usually come in teams, with [[ColorCodedCharacters color-keyed uniforms]] and a range of personalities/roles that usually follows some variation on the FiveManBand. Known for their [[SuperSentaiStance synchronized posing]]; also, a StandardPowerupPose is often used in many Sentai works during the TransformationSequence. A key concept is that the collective team are more important than the individual, and that more can be achieved by working together.

Although popular in {{anime}}, there have also been innumerable live action {{Sentai}} series in Japan, most notably ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', the series which was re-edited into ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' in the United States, and 2003's ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon''.

OlderThanCableTV, the first usage of "Sentai" was for [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun task forces]] in UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan, though variants existed [[OlderThanRadio as far back]] as [[JidaiGeki feudal times]]. The [[UsefulNotes/KaijuDefenseForce JSDF]] currently [[InsistentTerminology doesn't use "Sentai", but does use the related term "Kantai"]].



OlderThanCableTV, the first usage of "Sentai" was pinned by UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan for UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun task forces. Though Sentai is actually OlderThanRadio as variations of this were started in [[JidaiGeki Feudal Japan]]...

UsefulNotes/KaijuDefenseForce [[InsistentTerminology actually uses a variation of this term called "Kantai", thought "Sentai" isn't used explicitly]].

* ''GreenLantern'' has picked up some Sentai traits with the "New Guardians" teams, comprised of members from seven color-coded and [[PersonalityPowers Personality-Powered]] Corps. None of these people are much for striking poses, but they have the [[BadassCreed shonen speeches]] down cold.
