''Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills'' is a series produced by Creator/DiCEntertainment that ran for 40 episodes on the Creator/USANetwork in 1994. 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'', which was made by the people behind ''Power Rangers'').

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 Galactic Sentinels' celestial tattoos flash to alert them.

The Galactic Sentinels are composed of:
* '''Laurie Foster''' (Leslie Danon) TheLeader. [[TheAce Intelligent, beautiful, and very organized]], if somewhat bossy at times. As Scorpio, she has light green armor. Her weapon is a slim bladed sword.
* '''Gordon Henley''' (Richard Nason) A spoiled preppy whose mother is the mayor of Beverly Hills. He starts off arrogant but warms up to the others over time. He becomes Taurus, donning a black outfit. He wields a staff as his weapon.
* '''Drew Vincent''' (K. Jill Sorgen) A grungy tomboy who works at the coffee shop owned by her aunt that the teens regularly hang out in. She becomes Centaur, wearing a purple outfit. She uses a battle axe as her weapon.
* '''Swinton Sawyer''' (Rugg Williams) The BlackAndNerdy member of the group who is also the friendliest. He wears a yellow suit and holds the power of Apollo. His weapon is a small unnamed double-bladed weapon.

!!''Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills'' provides examples of:

* BareYourMidriff: Laurie when she is transformed into Scorpio.
* TheCameo: Zsa Zsa Gabor, running for mayor in a ForWantOfANail episode.
* CassandraTruth: When Drew's aunt Nicole confronts her about her constant disappearances, Drew reveals her secret. Her aunt takes her to a psychiatrist to help with her "delusions."
* CherryTapping: Knightron does this to Isolus in "The Spy".
* 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 them from forming him even when they're winning.
* DisappearedDad: It's implied that Gordon doesn't have a father when he bonds with Swinton's dad and starts doing things with him without Swinton, much to the latter's [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]].
* ADogAteMyHomework: A monster, actually.
* EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: Gorganus wants to conquer it to be able to use a portal network to conquer the universe and states he won't destroy it because the portal network would be destroyed as well.
* EvilSorcerer: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Sorcerer]].
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: The Galactic Sentinels use what appear to be melee weapons, but their only function is to shoot lasers.
* HeadBob: Of course. Gorganus is especially notable.
* GlobalWarming: In "Ozone O-Mio", Slaygar ''eats the ozone layer'', causing the world to become unbearably hot.
* GoodIsNotNice: Nimbar. He cares little for the Galactic Sentinels' personal lives and chides them whenever their mundane conflicts risk interfering with the mission. [[Franchise/XMen Professor X]] he is not, but he's also not wrong about saving the world being more important than their teen drama.
* AnIcePerson: Isolus.
* IconicOutfit: Gordon is very fond of neckties and always wears one with his day-to-day clothes. Even in "Switch", [[FreakyFridayFlip the episode where he switches bodies with Laurie]], he wears one as her.
* ItCameFromBeverlyHills: As the title suggests, the series is set in Beverly Hills.
* {{Meganekko}}: Drew is this when she swaps bodies with Swinton.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Averted. There are about nine or ten monsters that Gorganus sents 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. "Emperor for a Day" lampshades this.
* NoodleIncident: In "Trust", a freak electrical occurrence causes all of the lockers to pop open at school. Drew's diary falls out and the team reads an entry which explains exactly why she doesn't talk about her parents.[[note]]She lives with her aunt.[[/note]] The purpose of this is for Drew to be alienated enough to not join the group in their next fight, but the contents of the entry are never expounded upon.
* PowerTattoo: Used by Nimbar to alert the Galactic Sentinels.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Unlike in ''Power Rangers'', the Galactic Sentinels initially don't really like each other. This changes when they officially become friends in the episode "Winner Takes All". Their pretending not to be friends when questioned about it is lampshaded in "The Psychiatrist".
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Two of the monsters have a reptile theme (a snake and a dragon).
* RightOutOfMyClothes: In a dream sequence in "A Nightmare on Rodeo Drive," Gordon uses his mind to instantly strip Laurie down to her bra and panties.
* SixthRanger: Orion temporary joins the team.
* {{Stellar Name}}s: The Galactic Sentinels all use constellations for their names.
* SufficientlyAdvancedAliens: According to "Nightmare on Rodeo Drive," at least, the Sorcerer's powers are actually highly advanced science.
* SupremeChef: Laurie is revealed to be a very good baker in "The Quitter".
* TeenageMutantSamuraiWombats: Without context, the series sounds like a parody with a random WordSalad title.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted. In the two-parter "The Psychiatrist", Drew's aunt Nicole calls in a shrink because she believes Drew has Complusive Lying Syndrome.
* TitleDrop: Only happens once throughout the series[[note]]not counting the intro[[/note]].
* TotallyRadical: Some of it, like Drew constantly describing things, including getting her tattoo, as "hinky".
* WesternZodiac: Combined with FourTemperamentEnsemble and some artistic license. The Galactic Sentinels take the guardian constellations Aquarius (called Apollo), Sagittarius (called Centaur), Scorpio, and Taurus.
* WillNotTellALie: The villain Ninjabot won't lie, as part of his code of honor. While he's vowed his loyalty to Gorganus, he can still [[LoopholeAbuse make a deal with the Galactic Sentinels to get rid of Gorganus and steal his throne]].
