* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Warduke in the fourth episode.
** Episode 4 is when the villains in general start getting savvy. Rather than coming up with some roundabout way to allow an invasion by hypnotizing tourists or some such thing, Zakaral sneaks some big guns to Earth and uses them to just blow up the thing keeping the bulk of their armies out.[[spoiler: It works.]]

* AffectionateParody: Very much so. The show can't be said to really "mock" {{Sentai}}, but rather follows every trope of the genre quite faithfully. The humor comes from the decalage of setting a Sentai in France.

* JustEatGilligan: The standard one of these for Sentai series -- why the BigBad doesn't send all his monsters at once -- is parodically justified. The Eiffel Tower projects a force field around planet Earth, meaning that the BigBad can only send small squadrons of troops to Earth at a time, including a monster, some Panous-Panous and his two lieutenants.

** [[spoiler:France Robo's appearance in episode 6]] is a complete homage to the launch sequence of ''Anime/MazingerZ''.
** When Red's seat moves down after the robots combine in episode 6, it looks remarkably similar to Duke's seat doing the same when he'd activate [[Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Grendizer]] (probably more appropriate to say... [[CompletelyDifferentTitle Goldorak]]).

'''''France Five''''' (フランスファイブ ''Furansu Faibu''?), originally titled '''''Jushi Sentai France Five''''' (銃士戦隊フランスファイブ ''Jūshi Sentai Furansu Faibu'', translated as ''Musketeers Squadron France Five'') and later known as '''''Shin Kenjushi France Five''''' (新剣銃士フランスファイブ ''Shin Kenjūshi Furansu Faibu'', translated as ''New Sword Musketeers France Five''), is a French series produced by Buki X-1 Productions in 2000s. It is a homage to both Toei's ever-popular ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series (which was extremely popular in France in the 1980s) and another Sentai pastiche, ''Film/AikokuSentaiDaiNippon'' ("''Patriot Squadron Great Japan''") (1982) by Daicon Films (now Creator/StudioGainax).

Added DiffLines:

* SpandexLatexOrLeather: Spandex for the heroes, naturally, since the series tries to stick very closely to classic Sentai. The villains are a bit more varied, with leather, dominatrix-style, for Extasy, spandex shorts and little else for Warduke, and flowing robes for Cancrelax and Glou Man Chou.
