* Spoofed in ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}'', where Midori (the one who JumpedAtTheCall, thinking she's Franchise/SailorMoon) proposes teaming up into the "[=HiME=] Rangers" to fight the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters of the week]] more effectively. The two [=HiMEs=] who dismiss the idea as ridiculous ([[spoiler: Natsuki and Nao]]) are tied up and dragged to the meeting place anyway.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' is a hybrid Sentai[=/=]MagicalGirl show that started the MagicalGirlWarrior trope, which is basically a hybrid of these tropes.

* ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' has a singular, Sentai-based episode that becomes increasingly silly. Since the show only has [[FourTemperamentEnsemble four leading girls]], the fifth spot is filled by no one -- the green suit is an empty shell. On top of that, the team's CombiningMecha never forms correctly, with mishaps ranging from a missing component to five copies of the same component attempting to fuse together. The end of the episode is a stream of random gags that would take too long to explain here.
** There actually is a fifth ranger. She just happens to be invisible.
* The ''Manga/ExcelSaga'' manga is somewhere between a {{Deconstruction}} and [[TheParody Parody]] of this genre. The Municipal Team Daitenzin is Sentai group made up by the local government to fight the evil organization ACROSS, but it's staffed by a collection of disinterested or stupid employees who do more damage than they fix.

* Another ShowWithinAShow example is the Star Rangers in ''Manga/MutekiKanbanMusume''. Akihiko is a huge fan of them, to the point that when anyone so much as mentions the show, he starts to think he ''is'' Red Star. He seems equally convinced that the rest of the main cast are the other Star Rangers.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima:'' In an obvious parody of ''Franchise/SuperSentai''/''Franchise/PowerRangers'', the five girls from Negi's class with the lowest grades dub themselves the "Baka Rangers," complete with appropriate "hero names," like "Baka Red" and "Baka Pink". For clarification: Red = Asuna, Blue = Kaede, Yellow = Fei, Black = Yue, Pink = Makie.
** During the festival story arc in the manga, there is the "Maho(ra) Rangers" performing on a stage.

* Even ''Manga/ShugoChara'' has done it with Kukai. ''Ore wa...GUARDIAN FIVE!'' That is definitely his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* Parodied in ''HeroesAreExtinct'' - the protagonist Cassiel is a general in an aggressive space-faring empire, and his lifelong dream has always been to attack the Earth to do battle with the hero teams that he’s seen in intercepted television broadcasts (he's a bit of an {{Otaku}}). Unfortunately for him, in this story sentai don't exist. Not willing to take this lying down, he secretly kidnaps a random group of teenagers and provides them with training and advanced technology so that he’ll have someone worthy to fight. Since this is basically treason, Cassiel has to pull a balancing act, cultivating his Terra Rangers while attacking them, all in secret from the empire’s high command (including his love interest, the princess/stock sentai villainess).
* Parodied again in ''ImperfectHero'' - the hero is the green ranger in the high school battalion unit, Gakusei 5 (G5 for short), the special unit trained to fight and protect Earth against the invasion of the dreaded Galactic force "Gurdark" and its sexy queen Mayura. Unfortunately for our hero, he's a loser who can't fight and relies on his teammates to cover for him. Not only that, after he helps Mayura while in his civilian form, [[MagicalGirlfriend she moves in with him, and falls in love with him]].
