[[caption-width-right:285:Super Hero Time, READY GO!]]

Super Hero Time is a programming block on the Japanese television network TVAsahi, featuring new episodes of [[{{Toku}} tokusatsu]] television series from the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series. Both series have decades of history and have been intertwined in the public imagination for some time, not least of all because the driving creative force behind both was mangaka Creator/ShotaroIshinomori and they were both produced by the same production company, Toei Company. However, they did not air together until 2000 with ''Series/KamenRiderKuuga'' and ''Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'', though at the time they were not acknowledged together. Super Hero Time airs every Sunday morning, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. JST.

As a side note, Super Hero Time is a subset of the Nichi Asa Kids Time[[note]]Translates to Sunday Morning Kids Time[[/note]] block that lasts from 7:00 a.m. with a {{Shounen}} show. Currently this show is ''Anime/BattleSpiritsSaikyouGingaUltimateZero'' (a card game anime) and concludes at 9:00 a.m. after the screening of a Anime/PrettyCure episode. Currently the show is Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure.

!!The two Super Hero Time series share the following tropes:
* CallingYourAttacks
* CashCowFranchise: When the timeslot has its own page here, you know two shows are both this.
* {{Crossover}}: Commonly among their own series and sometimes with each other. For nearly 20 years Sentai has had the Vs. movies, teaming up the current Sentai series with the previous one, they were originally direct-to-video (then DVD) but changed to theatrical releases for the 15th anniversary of the Vs. series. More recently, Kamen Rider has the Movie War series. The crossover only happens at the start and the end of the block.
** UpToEleven: SuperHeroTaisen was a {{Crossover}} between the two franchises that are used in SuperHeroTime.
* DramaticHourLong: Super Hero Time itself, Rider and Sentai on their own last just under 25 minutes.
* ElementalPowers: Several Riders and Sentai teams use the power of the elements.
* EvilTwin: There have been many instances where the Kamen Rider faces a evil copy of himself, as do the Sentai teams face an evil Sentai. The nature of these evil duplicates vary.
* FinishingMove
** Kamen Rider is famous for the Rider Kick, others include Rider Punch, Chop, and Slash.
** Super Sentai has the [[{{BFG}} Team Bazooka]]. Alternatively, they just set their weapons to finish.
* HenshinHero
* LongRunner: Both
** As the trailers for the ''Let's Go Kamen Riders" film point out, 2011 is the franchise's 40th anniversary. Like another [[Series/DoctorWho popular science fiction franchise]], there was a lengthy gap in the middle (with the 1990s being the "wilderness" years, but [[Film/ShinKamenRiderPrologue Shin]], [[Film/KamenRiderZO ZO]] and [[Film/KamenRiderJ J]] kept the franchise going.
** 2011 marks 35 years of Super Sentai, with 199 Heroes uniting all of them (an expansion of the opening of Gokaiger's first episode). Unlike its companion franchise, Kamen Rider (which reached 40 years in 2011 and had its reunion in the OOO movie Let's go Kamen Riders), there has been a new Sentai series almost every year since the beginning, with the exception of 1978 (Battle Fever J, which was considered the first Super Sentai for years, aired in 1979).
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: There was ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', the Heisei Rider 10th anniversary series which ended up uniting all the main Kamen Riders up to then. A few years after, Sentai followed suit with ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.
** Taken to its logical conclusion with SuperHeroTaisen, a CrisisCrossover between both series. Bonus points for the two series that had already been their own franchise's MassiveMultiplayerCrossover playing an important role in it.
* MerchandiseDriven: To the point that Bandai is the block's main sponsor.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: The standard in both Sentai and Rider, though in the latter its more "Monster of the Fortnight" thanks to two-week mini-arcs.
* PassingTheTorch: There's a tradition of the current Sentai's Red Ranger passing the time slot over to his successor [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX9DHEL5e5M as seen in this video]].
* RedIsHeroic: In Sentai, the Red hero is almost always the leader, and even when he isn't, he is the central protagonist. As well as that, the majority of leading Kamen Riders have some element of red on their suits, no matter how minor it is.
* SixthRanger: Super Sentai has Sixth Rangers, Kamen Rider has Second Riders.
