'''ColorCodedCharacters'''
You're gonna need to be able to tell each member apart somehow. How you do it is up to you, most ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows have the entire suit in that colour bar a few other bits but in ''Series/TomicaHeroRescueForce'' they all wore orange with trim depending on the colours.

'''LawOfChromaticSuperiority'''
RedIsHeroic, so have TheHero wear it (it's not an absolute requirement, but it's a franchise tradition at this point so you'd better have a ''very'' good reason for breaking it). He usually gets [[ProtagonistPowerUpPrivileges the best stuff]], the primary focus, etc. Don't sideline the others, though.

'''SpandexLatexOrLeather'''
Chances are, you're gonna be going with spandex; as much as [[Series/PowerRangersRPM some people]] [[MemeticMutation deny it]]. [[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Latex]] [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai armor]] and [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters leather-like materials]] aren't unheard-of, though.

'''ThePowerOfFriendship'''
A staple of the genre. It makes the kids happy, after all.

'''{{BFG}}'''
You're gonna need something to blow up the monster before you summon the...

'''HumongousMecha'''
Specifically, CombiningMecha. The main weapon tends to be a sword for these ones. They are always [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robots]]. Be sure to include a lot of them, [[MerchandiseDriven you'll make some good money out of their toys]].

First, '''Theme''': Each season has some kind of overlaying theme to it. This theme is the inspiration for the heroes' costumes, their mecha, and sometimes even their weapons. Don't worry about repeating a theme that's already been done. After all, there were [[Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger three]] [[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger car-themed]] [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger seasons]], [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger three]] [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger dinosaur-themed]] [[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger seasons]], [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger three]] [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger ninja-themed]] [[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger seasons]] and plenty more where that came from. Give the theme a chance to rest before you dig it up again. [[FleetingDemographicRule 5 to 10 years sounds about right.]]

Second, '''Tone''': Do you want it to be a [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman dark drama]]? Or a [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger wacky comedy]]? Or even a [[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger ridiculous parody]]? This decision will affect how things look.

Third, '''Number of Heroes''': The minimum to a team is [[PowerTrio three members]], usually in [[PrimaryColorChampion red, blue and yellow]]. One of the two non-red members is going to be a girl. Usually it's yellow, but [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman some]][[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger times]] it's blue. On at least [[Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger one occasion]] both blue and yellow were girls, even.

The most common configuration is to have [[FiveManBand five members]], consisting of the usual red, blue and yellow but with a pink/white and black/green member along with them. You don't have to have TwoGirlsToATeam, but you can if you want. Chances are, the guys adapting your series will want to turn the one that isn't pink/white into a girl for the sake of feminism, though.

First, '''Theme''': '''Motif''': Each season has some kind of overlaying theme motif to it. This theme motif is the inspiration for the heroes' costumes, their mecha, and sometimes even their weapons. Don't worry about repeating a theme motif that's already been done. After all, there were [[Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger three]] [[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger car-themed]] [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger seasons]], [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger three]] [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger dinosaur-themed]] [[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger seasons]], [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger three]] [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger ninja-themed]] [[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger seasons]] and plenty more where that came from. Give the theme motif a chance to rest before you dig it up again. [[FleetingDemographicRule 5 to 10 years sounds about right.]]

Second, '''CentralTheme''': While the motif largely deals with the visual aspects of the season, you've also got to tell a story with it. What message do you want the audience to come away with? Courage, friendship, and family some of the more common ones; just keep it idealistic.

'''Tone''': Do you want it to be a [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman dark drama]]? Or a [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger wacky comedy]]? Or even a [[Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger ridiculous parody]]? This decision will affect how things look.

You'll also want a FiveTokenBand to make sure your cast isn't too monochromatic. It doesn't really matter which races are used or what roles they take, just make sure they're there. In a pinch; [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Xander]], [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Flynn]], and [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Antonio]] are evidence that you should never underestimate the power of an accent (and with production stationed in New Zealand these days, [[FakeAmerican most of your cast will be faking American accents anyway]]).

Of course, just because you start out with three/five doesn't mean you have to have that many for the whole series. ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' introduced the concept of having two additional members join a three-member team, and ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' introduced the concept of a permanent SixthRanger joining the team later. If the concept of a SixthRanger just doesn't cut it, you can always bring in an Extra Hero that fits the theme of the show, but not the heroes' costumes. Heck, you can add as many members as you like. ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' and ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' each got away with ''ten''!

Factor two is '''Footage'''. You will be limited by a combination of what suits you have and what footage you use. However, don't think this is an excuse to just [[ShotForShotRemake repeat the plot of the Sentai]]. The kids (and [[WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers Linkara]]) won't notice, but the older fans will have access to the original Sentai a year or more before you adapt it, and they ''will'' notice, and [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce once]] has this type of adaptation been a fan favorite season. And they will let you know that they noticed. Loudly. Instead, think of the Sentai footage as sort of a guideline, a suggestion more than a rule. [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman A nature-themed Sentai]] can just as easily be adapted into [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy a space opera]]. [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger A wacky comedy]], with enough work, can be repurposed into [[Series/PowerRangersRPM a post-apocalyptic drama]], [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo but this can also be messed up]]. Simply cut the footage you can't use and make good use of the footage you can.

This usually also applies to their pre-henshin state, but as ''ChourikiSentaiOhranger'' showed, you don't have to do that necessarily. It just helps. If they work for some form of group and have uniforms that they wear before transforming (See ''TokusouSentaiDekaranger'') then it's slightly more likely that they'll have colour co-ordinated uniforms outside of battle.
