''Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills'' is a series produced by Creator/DicEntertainment that ran for 40 episodes in the fall of 1994 on the Creator/USANetwork. It is one of several shows that were cranked out [[FollowTheLeader to get a piece of the pie]] when ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' made it big. It is notable for being one of only two not adapted from a preexisting {{toku}}satsu show (the other being ''Series/TheMysticKnightsOfTirNaNog'').

Emperor Gorganus wants to take over Earth because it's the nexus of a network of portals that would make universal domination a lot easier for him. To stop Gorganus's monsters from taking over the planet, a blobby alien named Nimbar [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude assembles four teenagers]] and gives them the power to transform into giant superheroes named after constellations to fight off the aliens. Whenever evil's afoot, the teens' celestial tattoos flash to alert them.

* CombiningMecha: When their tame chop socky isn't enough to get rid of a monster, the Galactic Sentinels can combine into Knightron, a robotic space knight of overwhelming power. Thing is, his power is [[PowerLimiter "finite"]], and only to be used as a last resort (which doesn't stop the teens from forming him even when they're winning).

* WillNotTellALie: The villain Ninjabot won't lie, as part of his code of honor (as in, he's vowed loyalty to Gorganus, but can still [[LoopholeAbuse make a deal with the Sentinels to get rid of Gorganus and steal his throne]]).

* IconicOutfit: Nothing about this show is "iconic," but objectively speaking, Gordon is very fond of neckties and always wears one with his day-to-day clothes. Even in the FreakyFridayFlip episode where he switched bodies with Laurie, he wore one as her.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Unlike in ''Power Rangers'', the heroes of this show initially didn't really like each other. This changed when they officially become friends in the episode "Winner Takes All". Their pretending not to be friends when questioned about it was lampshaded in the episode "The Psychiatrist".
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Two of the monsters had a reptile theme (a snake and a dragon).

* MonsterOfTheWeek: Averted. There were about nine or ten monsters that Gorganus would send out again and again depending on which one is best suited for his plan. This was most likely due to the show's shoestring budget.
