!!'''Recurring''' Super Sentai tropes:

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Despite them demons bent on killing us, it's hard too feel sad for the Saima children, except for Salamandas, when they die.]]
* AllYourPowersCombined: The Life Bird, which transforms from flying bird drone to blaster. It is composed of five different weapons. These ''do not'' have a set member, meaning anyone can use them.
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: It ''must'' be the shortest one ever: "Suit up!"[[note]]"''Chakusou!''"/"Equip suit!"[[/note]]
* CallingYourAttacks
* CombinationAttack
* CoolBike: Go Red's [[CoolSidecar sidecar-equipped]] Command Attacker.
* {{Crossover}}: ''Gogo-V vs. [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman Gingaman]]''.
* CustomUniform: The first Sentai series to legitimately use this trope, though they were only a slight step up from the uniforms of [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Ohranger]].
* [[spoiler: [[EleventhHourSuperpower Eleventh Hour]] [[DeadlyUpgrade Deadly]] HumongousMecha: Max Victory Robot Sigma Project a [[PaletteSwap Black Palette Swap]] from Max Victory Robot created from Mondo Tatsumi, but the mecha consume mental energy.]]
* FinishingMove: "Sword, call upon the light! [[DiagonalCut Victory Prominence!]]"
** "Raging Fists, call upon the firestorm! [[GatlingGood GRAND]]... [[MacrossMissileMassacre STORM]]!"
* FiveManBand: There are two [[TheBigGuy Big Guys]] in the team. [[note]]Nagare the GeniusBruiser and Daimon the BoisterousBruiser[[/note]]
** TheLeader: Matoi
** TheSmartGuy: Nagare [[note]]He's the thinker and inventor of the group[[/note]]
** TheLancer: Shou [[note]]He butts heads often with Matoi, and is not as forgiving to his father as the others[[/note]]
** KidAppealCharacter: Daimon
** TheChick: Matsuri
* HomeBase: Super Rescue Labs; consists of the Tatsumi household and mainly the [[UnderwaterBase Bay Areas]].
* HumongousMecha
** AMechByAnyOtherName: The 99-Machines[[note]][[{{Pun}} A wordplay]]: "99"/"Nine-Nine" is read as "kyūkyū" in Japanese, which is also the word for "rescue"[[/note]] (the rescue vehicles that form the Victory Walker and Victory Robo), the Go Liners (the train cars that form the Five Liner and the Grand Liner) and the Mars Machines (the component of the Victory Mars)
** CombiningMecha
*** Blue Thrower + Yellow Armor + Pink Aider = Victory Walker
*** Red Ladder + Green Hover + Victory Walker = Victory Robo
*** Go Liner 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = Five Liner (the train mode that carried each of the 99-Machines) or Grand Liner (robot mode)
*** Red Mars 1 + Blue Mars 2 + Green Mars 3 + Yellow Mars 4 + Pinks Marks 5 = Beetle Mars, which transforms into the Victory Mars
** TransformingMecha: The Liner Boy, which can transform into a train car called the Max Liner, which can then transform into a spacecraft called the Max Shuttle. The Victory Mars is a transformed version of the Beetle Mars.
** MechaExpansionPack: Liner Boy serves this function to both Victory Robo and the Go Liners.
*** Victory Robo + Liner Boy = Max Victory Robo
*** Max Liner + Five Liner = Max Go Liner
*** Max Shuttle + Five Liner = Space Go Liner (which serves as a carrier for each of the Mars Machines)
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: "Missions".
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: A pretty simple one.
--> '''Matoi''': "''[=GoRed=]''!"
--> '''Nagare''': "''[=GoBlue=]''!"
--> '''Sho''': "''[=GoGreen=]''!"
--> '''Daimon''': "''[=GoYellow=]''!"
--> '''Matsuri''': "''[=GoPink=]''!"

---> '''Sho''': "''[=KyuKyu=] Sentai - !''"
---> '''Daimon''': "''Go - !''"
---> '''Matsuri''': "''Go - !''"
---> '''All''': "''Five!''"
----> '''Matoi''': "Mobilize!"
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the second episode.
** They do a combined roll call with [[Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger Timeranger]] during its team-up movie.
--> '''Tatsuya''': "The lives of people are the ''future'' of this planet!"
---> '''Matoi''': "Burning ''Rescue'' spirits!"
---> '''[=GoGo Five=]''': "''[=Kyukyu=] Sentai - !''"
---> '''Matoi''': "''Go! Go!''"
---> '''All''': "''Five!''" "''Timeranger''!"
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Matoi gets his own motorcycle, the Command Attacker. The others, meanwhile, get ''no'' individual means of transport.
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Pierre's responsibility; he does this by tossing the Saima Cards at the monster's remains and chanting a magic spell.
* {{Mook}}: The imps.
* {{Motif}}: Boy, is there ''a lot''!
** {{Rescue}}, of course! In fact, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Mission 8]] reveals that the Tatsumi family line goes way back to the Edo era as firefighters, so assumingly, the rescue spirit runs in the family.
*** And it's not just a visual motif either; the series tries to emphasize the spirit and essence of rescue work and workers whenever possible. Missions 8 and 11, for example, put focus on this.
** The letter "V"; both as the Roman numeral for "5", as a visual motif, and also possibly referring to "Victory". As if to keep the motif clean, there wasn't even a SixthRanger.
*** And V for Victory, of course, the resident CombiningMecha being known as Victory Robo. And more subtly with the team's ally and fellow superhero Demon Hunter Sieg, whose named means victory in German.
** And "''Kyukyu''"/"Rescue" and "[[{{Pun}} 99]]", to a lesser extent.
*** Which turns into FridgeBrilliance when you consider that the series with the Rescue motif was released in 1999
** Parent-child relationship, reflected by ''both'' the Tatsumi family and Saima clan. [[spoiler:And the ''vast'' contrast between the head, and sole, parent's disposition and affection towards the children.]]
** While we're at the topic of "Family": '''Sibling bond'''. This is a major theme also reflected by both sides, [[spoiler:though unlike the absolute polarity with parent-child relationship, both sides exhibit the same nature of closeness between the siblings]], with slightly varying degrees, of course.
** Ironically for a Super Sentai title, the series has quite a bit of realism scattered throughout; character and setting realism for the most part, but arguably, also due to the "Earth Technology" motif. Then again, we're talking about the technology which created an [[UnderwaterBase underwater]] [[HomeBase train station]],[[MissionControl sentient]] [[RobotBuddy robots]] and a [[CoolTrain gigantic train]] holding several CombiningMecha components, [[spoiler:which, in addition, can be launched into space...]]
* TheMovie: ''Gogo-V: Gekitotsu! Aratanaru Chōsenshi'' ("Clash! The New Super Warrior", also known as ''Gogo-V vs. Zeek'' on the DVD back cover). Unlike previous movies, this was a straight-to-video release and it's officially counted as the fifth Sentai Vs. movie, despite not being an actual crossover (since Zeek was a new character made for the film).
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Emergency Signal!"[[note]]"''Kinkyuutsuho!''"[[/note]]
* RobotBuddy: [=LinerBoy=].
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Dr. Mondo only made enough suits for his five children, leaving Go Pink as the only female member. However, Kyoko, the self-proclaimed sixth member of Gogo-V, does get the chance to help out the team as a legitimate heroine when she dons the Zeektector armor, if only for the movie.
* SuperMode
* SupervillainLair: Saima Paradico, located in the North Pole.
* ThemeMusicPowerUp
* TransformationTrinket
* WeaponOfChoice:
** SwissArmyWeapon: The Five Lasers. [[note]][[{{Handguns}} Gun]] and [[CarryABigStick Stick]] modes.[[/note]]
*** BifurcatedWeapon: The Five Laser's Laser Grips can detach from the blaster to attach to the Life Bird components.
** WhipItGood: The Rescue Ropes.
** BladeOnAStick: The V-Lancers.
*** {{BFG}}: V-Lancer + Laser Grip = V-Machine Gun.
** BattleBoomerang: The V-Boomerangs, which are attached to the shafts of the V-Lancers.
** SuperWristGadget: The V-Mode Braces.
** CoolGuns: The [[MidSeasonUpgrade Go Blasters]].
** GiveMeASword: Unlike previous series, the personal weapons for this team can be used by anyone. The standard issue armament for each Go Go Five:
*** Matoi: [[GrapplingHookPistol Claw Anchor]]
*** Nagare: [[KillItWithIce Build Discharger]] [[note]]A fire extinguisher[[/note]]
*** Sho: [[KnifeNut Wing Spreader]] [[note]]A Jaws-of-Life-style pair of scissor appendages[[/note]]
*** Daimon: [[ThisIsADrill Beak Driller]]
*** Matsuri: [[HealingPotion Tail Injector]]

!!Tropes specific to Rescue Sentai [=GoGo=] Five:

* ActorAllusion: Zeek from TheMovie is played by Keiichi Wada, or [[spoiler:[[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Ryo of DaiRanger]]]]. Three guesses what his henshin pose looks like.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Zylpheeza; multiple times.]]
* BadassCreed: "Sword - Call upon the light! ''Victory Prominence!''"
** "Raging fists - Call upon the firestorm! ''Grand Storm!''"
** And Victory Mars' improvised finisher: "Sword - Call upon the crimson flames! ''Mars Prominence!''"
* BadassFamily: The father made ''all'' the equipments, the base ''and'' the {{Humongous Mecha}}s; the kids beat the snot out of an invading demon clan. BadassFamily indeed!
* BrotherSisterTeam: Notably, the series pits ''two'' {{Brother Sister Team}}s against each other: the [=GoGoFive=] VS the Saima siblings.
** FiveBadBand: The Saima siblings.
* CatchPhrase: "Mission Complete!". Also used as one of the "The End" phrases at the end of each Mission, which can vary depending on how the episode ended.
** Mint's "Emergency Signal! Emergency Signal!" Also [[OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase used by the episode previews]] as they start.
* CoolTrain: The [=GrandLiner=]; oh, so very, very cool.
* DemonSlayer: Zeek.
* DistaffCounterpart: Denus' personal imps are dressed in "skirts", and are assumingly females. Then again, the Imps are directly stated as Familiars, so it's questionable whether they have genders to begin with.
** In ''Gogo-V vs. Zeek'', Kyoko becomes Zeek's opposite-gender successor, Zeek-Jeanne, right down to wearing a [[GenderedOutfit female version of the Zeektector armor]].
* ElementalPowers: Most of the Saima Clan each have one.
** BlowYouAway: Zylpheeza
** DishingOutDirt: Cobolda
** MakingASplash: Venus
** PlayingWithFire: Salamandes
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The team's FinishingMove, the Calamity Breaker - it breaks (demons which create) calamities.
* FemmeFatalons: Grand Witch Grandiene.
* FeudingFamilies: The Tatsumis vs. the Saimas, of course.
* GiantRobotHandsSaveLives: The Red Ladder mecha's ladders form the arms of Victory Robo, so the giant hands of said robot come in handy to pull civilians out of the danger zone.
* TheHeartless: Denus once said to the Gogofive that Saima Beast doesn't have such a thing called heart. [[SubvertedTrope Of course]], since the MonstersOfThisWeek [[TragicMonster Thanato]] does have heart, she rectified that even if he had one, she will destroy it.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Who's Kyoko Hayase, you ask? Why, [[spoiler:[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka Langley Soryu]] herself]], of course!
** [[DemonSlayer Zeek]] is none other than [[spoiler:[[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger "Tenkasei" Ryo]] himself]]!
* HeyItsThatVoice: Salamandes is voiced by Creator/HikaruMidorikawa.
** Zylpheeza is [[BraveSeries Might Gaine]] and [[RoninWarriors Seiji Date]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [=MaxVictoryRobo=]'s solar panels can absorb, in addition to sunlight, also (light and/or energy from) flames and explosions the Saimas throw at it, and return full-force with ''[[BeamSpam Max Nova]]''.
* {{Homage}}: The entire premise, possibly. [[Series/{{Thunderbirds}} Five siblings recruited by their father to operate massive rescue-themed vehicles, plus the antagonist(s) living in a pyramid..]]
** Continuing the theme, there's the use of an [[Series/{{Stingray 1964}} underwater base]], and the fact that a lot of this was done using [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome miniatures]].
* HotBlooded: Particularly during the Mecha {{Finishing Move}}s.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Matsuri was briefly involved in a LoveTriangle with her best friend and another guy, but conceded to let him marry her friend for this reason.
* InstantExpert: Subverted; Dr. Tatsumi already installed the instruction database in the suits beforehand.
* OddlyNamedSequel: Until the premiere of ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'', this was the last Sentai season to have a non-standard title (i.e., one without the "-(ran)ger" or "-man" suffix).
* OhCrap: Zylpheeza, when he realizes that [[spoiler:the Max Victory Robo just ate his explosion for breakfast]].
* OneTwoThreeFourGo: The title of the show, [=GoGo-V=] is literally "555".
** Which proves to be a HilariousInHindsight moment when Shou/[=GoGreen=]'s actor took on a major role in Series/KamenRiderFaiz, alternately known as [[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Kamen Rider 555]].
*** Doubles as a MeaningfulName, as 555 is the rescue phone number in Japan (also explained in the PunnyName entry in Faiz's trope page).
* ParentalAbandonment: Their father vanishes for ten years to develop the means to fight evil demons, and their mother vanishes in a plane crash. He comes back in the first episode, [[spoiler: she comes back in the last episode]].
** As such, Dr. Tatsumi spent a good part of the plot [[TheAtoner trying to reconnect with his children again]], often resulting in awkward moments.
** The Saima also spend the first half of the show without their mother's physical presence.
* ParentalFavoritism: Zylpheeza, then Salamandes earned the right by their mother to be called the [[TheDragon Dark King]]. [[spoiler: In the end though, she reveals she never gave a damn about her kids at all.]]
* {{Rescue}}
* SixthRanger: Averted in the actual series. The creative team avoided adding a recurring sixth member since they wanted to stay true to the show's title and its five-member motif. [[spoiler:In the DTV movie, Kyoko temporarily becomes a sixth member of sort when she inherits Zeek's armor after he dies.]]
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman''.
** Given the name, it seems that the upcoming ''Ressha Sentai Tokkyuger'' will be this, having a train motif and falling on the 15th anniversary of this season.
* StealthPun: "''Kyukyu''" means "Rescue", yes, but with different kanji, it can also mean "Nine-Nine". Guess which year [=GoGoFive=] ran in.
** Mint's name is also one, according to its image song; the song title is written in Kanji as "5 people".
* TeamDad: Mondo Tatsumi, by virtue of being their father.
* ThemeNaming: According to TheOtherWiki, the Tatsumi siblings are all named after traditional firefighting equipments.
** "Matoi" means "to wind"--as in "winding things up in a rope"--and refers to the ropes used in rescues.
** "Nagare" means "to flow"--as in "flowing water"--and refers to the water used to douse fires.
** "Shou" means "bell"--as in "big ones that tolls"--and refers to the bells tolled to warn people of dangers.
** "Daimon" means "big door"--as in "gate"--and refers to the gateway to safety.
** "Matsuri" means "festivals"--as in "the banner hoisted in festivals"--and refers to the ceremonial banners (usually used in festivals) that were raised to mark a safety exit.
** And since we're at the spot, the Saima siblings are named after mythology creatures.
*** "Zylpheeza": Sylph, the spirit of wind.
*** "Cobolda": Kobold.
*** "Denus": Her name is a bit special, it come from Undine, the water spirit and Venus, goddess that was born from waves. As for why they chose a name of a goddess for demon? Well, take a guess.
*** "Salamandes": Salamander, oblivously.
* TragicMonster: Thanatos
* UnderwaterBase: Bay Area 55[[note]]''[[{{Pun}} GoGo]]''[[/note]] and [[MechaExpansionPack Max]] Area.
* VillainSong: "Denus Syndrome" by Denus and Pierre's "Tango Sai Ma".
* WhenThePlanetsAlign: The first half of the series has the Saima preparing for the planets to align into the Grand Cross so they may bring back Grandiene.
