->"''Guarding the Planet is an Angel's mission!''"

''Tensō Sentai Goseiger'' (Celestial Armament Squadron Planet Defen-ger) [[note]]''Tensō'' means "heavenly cloth" or "celestial armament", while the name "Goseiger" is a portmanteau of ''goseija'' (planet guardian) and "ranger"[[/note]] is the 34th program in the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series, airing from 2010 to 2011.

Long ago, humanity split off into a new group that called themselves the Gosei Angels. From their home plane of Gosei World, the Gosei Angels have used the power of their magic "Gosei Cards" to protect humanity in secret for generations.

In the present day, a alien race known as "Warstar" has descended upon the Earth in the name of conquest, destroying the Tower of Heaven that acts as the gateway to Gosei World. Now the only hope of humanity rests with five fledgling Gosei Angels who have been stranded on Earth: the Goseiger.

As time goes on, the Goseiger learn what it truly means to protect the Earth, and face a number of escalating threats: the mysterious insectoids known as "Yuumajuu", the calculating and robotic "Matrintis" faction, and a [[ManBehindTheMan dark secret from the past of Gosei World]].

Has been adapted into ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'', which began airing in 2013.

* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Involves sending bugs down to the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* MerchandiseDriven: All Sentai has this, but Goseiger has been pretty blatant with it. The show currently has two gimmicks. One to support the Dice-O card game (and the only way to get the cards on the show is to buy all the other merchandise attached to the show, including the expensive roleplay jackets in ADULT AND CHILD sizes.) and then the Headders, who are of course, with the exception of the main ones, are sold seperately from the mechs. The Exotic Headers are another good example of the merchandising nature of the season. The reason they appeared once in the show was so they could do limited edition header redecos for special items.
* [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]]
* {{Mook}}s
* {{Motif}}: 3. Three clans, three kinds of Gosei Power, the Goseiger were supposed to be 3 sets of 2, 3 sets of villains [[spoiler:that Brajira is a part of, the way he has the 3 clans' powers]] and a focus on both hero and villain sides with the trinity of heaven/space, earth and the sea.
** The Warstar Army's designs seem to be based on a colony of...[[ComicBook/AmazonsAttack Bees. My god.]]
** Ironically, the Goseigers themselves subvert their seemingly "Angelic" motif, by not being anything like the classic angels in literature...and fighting an interstellar invasion fleet. Actually Double-Subverted when the BigBad turns out to be [[spoiler:Buredoran/Brajira, a fallen Gosei Angel, [[SatanicArchetype just like Satan]].]]
** Their TransformationSequence has them [[PowerGivesYouWings sprouting wings]] for a second, but that's about it.
**** The Gosieger's wings appear and disappear. Alata has flown once and they've appeared in a variation of Red Break.
** The Yuumajuu shifted to a monster, which is a relatively recurring theme in Super Sentai history, with their three head honchos being {{Bigfoot|SasquatchAndYeti}}, [[BlobMonster The Blob]], and a {{Chupacabra}}.
** The Matrintis Empire that consists entirely of robots.
** And Burajira uses Headders based off Mythlogical Creatures.
** All of the Gosegier's Air-Based Mecha are all mythological creatures. Alata's Dragon, Eri's Phoenix, and Gosei Knight's "Skyleon" (Which people took as a literal "sky lion" and assumed it was a Griffin.)
* TheMovie: ''Goseiger: Epic on the Movie''
** DirectToVideo: ''Come Back! Tensou Sentai Goseiger: Last Epic''
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Protecting the Planet is an Angel's mission!"
* RegularCaller: Datas calls the Goseigers on their Tensouders when he detects activity from the bad guys. Before he came along, the Goseigers would detect trouble by sensing disturbances in the air/earth/water, depending on their tribe.
* RobotBuddy: Datas; a [[TheMerch Dice-O machine]], a traditional RobotBuddy and a battle-ready TransformingMecha (Datas Hyper) in one package.
* SuperMode: The Super Goseiger.
* SupervillainLair
* ThemeMusicPowerUp
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: "Gosei Great - Advent!"[[note]]''Kourin!''[[/note]]
* TransformationTrinket: The Tensouder, basically a head that can read cards. The cards run on the same Carddass system ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' uses. And like ''Decade'', the cards tie into an arcade game, ''Dice-O''.
** Knight has the Leon Cellular, a combination card reader/cell phone.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Another Yellow and Pink duo.
* WeaponOfChoice
** {{Handguns}}: The Gosei Blasters.
** Alata: [[CoolSword Skick Sword]]
** Eri: [[HandCannon Skick Shot]]
** Agri: [[AnAxeToGrind Landick Axe]]
** Moune: [[ImprobableWeaponUser Landick Claw]] [[note]]It's a claw-like weapon that doesn't belong in any specific weapon trope though it has been shown to be used as a shield.[[/note]]
** Hyde: [[AutomaticCrossbows Seaick Bowgun]]
** Gosei Knight: [[SwissArmyWeapon Leon Laser]] [[note]][[RayGun Gun]] and [[CoolSword Sword]] modes.[[/note]]
** Super Goseiger: [[{{BFS}} Gosei Tensword]]

!!Tropes specific to ''Tensou Sentai Goseiger'':

* AlienBlood: Warstar members have green blood.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Alata during the Warstar arc up until the beginning of the Matorintis arc. He engages in many feminine tendencies, not limited to planting, house decoration, and cooking. (Though to be fair, Hyde cooks, too) He has a very cheerful disposition unlike Agri and Hyde, who are [[TheStoic rather quiet and prideful.]] The show simply explains it off as a PlotDevice by saying that all Skick Tribe members are naturally cheerful and bubbly. Of course, by the time the Matorintis arrived, he had made his transition to TheLeader, and was changed into more of a battle-ready combatant compared to his formerly carefree attitude. (He still retained his cheerfulness, however.)
* AnimalMotifs: Everything centered around Gosei Knight has a lion motif, including himself
* AntiClimax: In Epic 15, the Goseigers finally face off against [[DiscOneFinalBoss Mons Drake]], who wipes the floor with them in less than a minute. Not very soon afterwards, they were able to take him down through...HeroicResolve. In the same episode. [[VillainDecay What gives, Drake?]]
** That's not the only thing; in the ensuing [[MakeMyMonsterGrow giant battle]] against Mons Drake, they were able to take him down, along with his [[SupervillainLair spaceship]], [[Film/IndependenceDay Inde]][[Series/TheInvaders vader]]. The problem? The team's strongest mecha up to that point, Hyper Gosei Great was introduced a couple of episodes ago, against [[TheDragon Dereputa]], which makes this a case of ''misplaced'' climax rather than anti-climax.
*** And...[[spoiler:[[TheDragon he]] survived it as per Epic 16]]. [[FlatWhat Huh.]]
* AudibleGleam: The first Epic alone spammed it throughout.
* BarrierWarrior: The ''Defenstorm'', ''Defenstone'' and ''Defenstream'' Expand Cards.
* BatmanInMyBasement: the entire series has our heroes living in a spare room in Nozomu's house.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: "Plasuma wave mesurment system is working now..."[[note]]That's Hyde's computer, searching for plasma emissions from Matrintis to locate Datas in Epic 42[[/note]]
** The tribe names and some of the card names. While generally spelled correctly, they're made from English words (or suffixes) but go together in ways no English-speaker would ever combine them. "Skick" is first and foremost on this list.
* TheBlindLeadingTheBlind: a stunning ''three-level'' affair in Epic 20. Nozomu convinces a schoolmate to approach the Gosei teens for love advice (since apparently Cupid is ''kind of like'' an Angel), and they in turn look to ''Prof. Amachi of all people''. (Yes, he has a son and is obviously qualified, but you really wouldn't think so otherwise...)
* BluRay: Although the [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Shinkenger]] [[spoiler:and the [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokaiger]]]] share the team-up with them, the Goseiger are the first Sentai to appear on Blu-Ray, thanks to the movies. However, TV episodes won't make it to Blu-Ray until ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: The Goseigers watch a pair of comedians perform such an act in Epic 26. Hyde fails to see the appeal.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Agri and Moune.
* BrownNote: Used by a [[ThePowerOfRock rock-music-themed]] MonsterOfTheWeek. It doesn't sound ''that'' bad, but it seems to affect the Skicks even more than anyone else, since sound travels through air.
** Epic 23's [=MotW=] lets out mosquito noises to invoke this trope (it's the beginning of summer, when mosquito buzzing ''can'' reach maddening levels), but thanks to some additional distortion effects, it sounds like farting at times.
* BumblingDad: Professor Amachi is a textbook example.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Prof. Amachi is a borderline case. Ep 10 introduces Prof. Sakana, a Fish Headed Professor, who is an actual personality in Japan. Imagine if Bill Nye guest-starred on ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' as "himself," using his ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy'' TV persona. [[http://videosift.com/video/Sakana-kun-Super-happy-Japanese-boy-man-loves-fish Uh...kinda-sorta.]]
* ButtMonkey: Alata. What with his being sacrificed by teammates to their friends zany episodic plans every other week and all.
* CatchPhrase: Eri's "It'll work out somehow~!".
** Alata's "Now's the time to show them the [[CombiningMecha power]] of [[FiveManBand us five]]!".
*** Gosei Knight's "It's my turn."
* ChekhovsSkill: Eri's singing and Alata's practice in using the [=CompreThunder=] card resurface in Epic 48.
* ChestBlaster: Gosei Dragon on [=GoseiGreat=], the core five on Hyper [=GoseiGreat=] and, most prominently, the Miracle Headders on Gosei Ultimate which, when folded in, resemble Master Head's face. Metal Alice has a rather...[[FetishFuel suggestive]] variant.
* ChildhoodFriends: Alata and Eri
* ClipShow: Epic 45. Though a normal occurance in any Sentai season, this one served a particular purpose beyond reflecting on how the heroes had grown: [[spoiler:Finding out the true identity of Buredoran.]]
* CompressedVice: In Epic 9, Eri is shown to be very messy and lazy, annoying NeatFreak Moune. This is used to set up a bonding moment that drives them to rescue the boys together, and then (even though they agree to disagree) Eri's laziness and untidiness never crop up again.
* DanceBattler: Moune's fight in episode 11 combines her cheerleading with a [[ShockAndAwe Sparquake]] card to effectively short-circuit a monster.
* DancingTheme: The ending theme, "Gotcha* Goseiger", subverted this despite initial guesses. While the melody ''does'' sound like a DancingTheme, there's very little dancing footage...if you count the Goseigers doing a Ring-Around-the-Rosie for a couple of seconds as "dancing".
** It only subverted it until Epic 8, at which point the ending played it straight with "Gotcha* Goseiger TYPE 2 REMIX", which includes new visuals and the Goseigers singing and dancing with the incoming microphone toy. Though Version 1 pops up again every so often.
* DeadSidekick: [[spoiler:Hyde's partner, Magis, who would have been the sixth (green) member of the team but was killed in action against Kurasunīgo of 5000C in a suicidal attack off a cliff, while at the same time Heaven's Tower was destroyed by Dereputa.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Alata and Hyde are this, especially the former. See Epic 49.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: The Warstar are the major driving force for the first quarter of the show, with Mons Drake presenting himself as a serious threat. He's still offed by Epic 15, clearing the way for the Goseiger to move up the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil.
** Soon after which they're replaced by the Yumaju[[note]]Spectral Demonic Beasts[[/note]].
*** Which are finished off in Epic 32, just in time to be replaced by the Matrintis, effectively making them a rare case of a [[DiscOneFinalBoss Disc Two Final Boss]].
** Even then the Matrintis are destroyed in Epic 44, making them the [[DiscOneFinalBoss Disc Three Final Boss]] and leaving [[spoiler:Buredoran, or rather Brajira,]] as the final BigBad.
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: The Abare Headder inverts this. It knew its strength, and was terrified of going out of control and hurting people. Thankfully, the Goseigers were able to assure it that they would help prevent that from happening, allowing it to turn into the Miracle Gosei Headders.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The "Yuumatick Power" CombinationAttack in Epic 31 is basically Kinggon and Makuin in...a rather unfortunate position.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Since midway through the Warstar arc, the end theme has been sung accompanied by the Goseigers on the [[ProductPlacement GoseiMic]], though occasionally they go back to the old one.
* DualWielding: Alata's [[ForegoneConclusion final decisive battle against Dereputa]] in Epic 16, where after [[LetsGetDangerous getting serious]], he pulls out both [[SwordAndGun the Skick Sword and the Gosei Blaster]].
** Gosei Ultimate wields a pair of swords.
* EarlyBirdCameo: The five Goseigers appear in ''[[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Shinkenger]] [[Film/SamuraiSentaiShinkengerVsGoOngerGinmakuBang vs.]] [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger Go-onger]]'', where they prevent Akumaro, Juzo and Dayu from interfering in the main battle. Starting the recent tradition of new Sentai teams making their debut in the Vs. movie between the two previous teams before their series premieres. Equivalent to the [[Franchise/KamenRider new Kamen Rider]] appearing in the summer movie of the current and soon to depart Rider, coming to the aid of his predecessor, which started with [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]] in ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'': ''[[Film/KamenRiderDecadeAllRidersVsDaiShocker All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker]]''.
** The Goseiger's successors, Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger, make their debut in ''[[Film/TensouSentaiGoseigerVsShinkengerEpicOnGinmaku Goseiger vs. Shinkenger]]''. [[spoiler:Episode 40 of Gokaiger reveals this was the Gokaiger being the [[HeroOfAnotherStory Heroes Of Another Story]], on one of their own adventures.]]
* ElementalPowers: Depending on what tribe a Gosei Angel is born into, he or she is born with the following powers.
** BlowYouAway: Skick Tribe, Alata and Eri.
** DishingOutDirt: Landick Tribe, Agri and Moune.
** MakingASplash: Seaick Tribe, Hyde [[spoiler:and Magis]].
*** AllYourPowersCombined: Knightick Power, specific to Gosei Knight. There is also a Gosei Card called ''Trianglobal'' that combines the Skick, Landick and Seaick powers together.
** Some of the Gosei Cards use other elements that correspond with the team's main three.
*** AnIcePerson: The ''Istop'' and ''Freezedrive'' Splash Cards.
*** GreenThumb: The ''Roplant'' Outbreak Card
*** PlayingWithFire: The ''Kaentornado'' Explosion Card, exclusive to ''Goseiger vs Shinkenger''.
*** ShockAndAwe: The ''Comprethunder'' and ''Sparquake'' Spark Cards.
* EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture: Metal Alice carries around what looks like an iPad, which turns into a sword in battle.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The Landick and Skick Brothers Headders include two StockDinosaurs, Tyranno and Ptera Headders, which are brought together for their own FinishingMove when the Skick Brothers debut in ep 9.
** Although Eri and Moune don't take kindly to being associated with dinosaurs...
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Toramezu uses this tactic against Gosei Knight in the latter's inaugural battle. It manages to knock him against a wall, but that was the most successful attack it really got off against him...[[TheWorfBarrage which wasn't saying much]].
** There was also an earlier episode during the Warstar arc where Hyde used a spinning attack against the Warstar monster who [[spoiler:killed his partner]].
* EvilCounterpart: Epic 42's Saroge-DT is this to Datas.
* EvilGenius: Buredoran[[spoiler:/Brajira. He manipulated each group he was part of to gain knowledge from them (martial tactic's from Warstar, magic from the Yūmajū and technology from Matrinits) in order to gain more power.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Eri, Moune and Agri, on the week Gosei Knight debuted.
* EyepatchOfPower: Seaick Gosei Great.
* {{Expy}}: The formation of Gosei Ground is similar to that of Anime/GodSigma.
* TheFairFolk: The basis for Epic 25's Monster of the Week. Moune is nearly abducted by one.
* {{Fanservice}}: Epic 11 begins Moune and several other girls doing a cheerleading sequence, including a PantyShot. Epic 23 contains a scene where Moune and Eri lose their bikini tops while being shot into mid-air, although they're rescued by Datas and we don't see anything.
* FeatherMotif: Oh, so very much.
* FlamingSword: "Victory Charge" card used for Gosei Great's FinishingMove, Great Strike, ignites the Dragon Sword.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Watch the original ED sequence, with the ring-around-the-tree and the running across the bridge, then watch the finale.
* FreudianTrio: While the team themselves aren't a trio, the tribes they come from fit this.
** Ego: Skick Tribe
** Id: Landick Tribe
** Superego: Seaick Tribe
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Alata ''punches'' Knight back to the side of good. [[spoiler: However, it made sense: Alata was trying to use good Gosei Power to drive the Dark Gosei Power out of him, one attack at a time, until it worked and GK's brainwashing was undone.]]
* TheGhost: Nozomu's mother in episode 38.
* GratuitousEnglish: Skick/Landick/Seaick Power, Datass Hyper, Headders, Tensouder...That's just from the premiere, mind.
** The Tensouders. Period. Gosei Knight's Leon Cellular ''does not'' apply.
---> "''Samon! <...> Hedda!''>
* GroinAttack: Eri treats one of the Yumaju in Epic 21 with one.
* HeroicBSOD: [[NotSoDifferent Both Hyde and Gosei Knight]] in Epic 19.
* IfItSwimsItFlies: Gosei Shark averts this by moving on the ground when not in water. The Seaick Brothers play it straight, though.
** Also averted by the Knight Brothers; one's based on a cruise liner, the other a blimp. They travel exactly how you would expect them to.
* {{Invisibility}}: The ''Invisibreeze'' Outbreak Card.
* JapaneseBeetleBrothers: The Stag and Kabuto Headders are a type C; they appear at separate times and are not used together.
* JustForPun: The command "''Tensou''" used [[strike:in Tensou jutsus]] whenever they activate a card has a homophone meaning "Transfer/Teleport", making this also a meaningful pun whenever they summon or transport something.
* KilledMidSentence: The Zan-[=KT3=] triplets in Epic 43. Doubles as WeHardlyKnewYe since they were introducing themselves to the Goseigers when they were killed.
* LampshadeHanging
--> '''Nozomu''': That was too much. [[AnAesop The soccer flip he practiced]] suddenly [[IKnowMaddenKombat became useful in battle.]]
* LandSeaSky
* LargeHam: Gosei Knight didn't talk a lot in his debut, but everything he said there is theatrically heroic.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Hyde has a Memory Wash card that can be used on {{Muggles}} without problem. Except for Nozomu. There's a {{Masquerade}} to keep up.
** Later, it is shown that the Skick and Landick Tribe Goseigers have their own memory erasing cards, Memory Fly and Memory Bury.
* LetMeGetThisStraight: Episode 1 does this with the ''series premise''; episode 4 does this with Datas' origin.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: the premise of Epic 20 (and a CallBack to Shinkenger's Butler episode) has a [=MotW=] able to twist the love in people's hearts into painful obsession - after which he sweeps in to provide release ''by [[LiteralGenie consuming their emotions whole.]]''
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Hyper Gosei Great's Victory Charge(with Headders in place of missiles)
** Gosei Ground's as well, though in a more literal sense
** And Ultimate Gosei Great's final attack with a bow and mass-duplicating arrow.
* [[MadeOfIron Made Of Rubber]]: Makuin appears to invoke this in battle.
* MagicMusic: Eri's voice can heal injuries and make flowers bloom all over the world.
* MarketBasedTitle: ''Power Rangers Miracle Force'', in South Korea.
* MeaningfulName: Nozomu's family name, "Amachi", is written with the Kanji "Sky/Heaven" and "Know/Notice", a nod to his status as the SecretKeeper. Also applies to Professor Amachi through a different take due to being an astronomer.
** Yūmajū monster names start with one Kanji which bears some indication of the bearer[[note]]For example, [[TheBrute Kingon's]] Kanji means "Muscle"[[/note]].
** Probably unintentional, but Alata and Agri are [[AltumVidetur Latin for "winged" and "of the land", respectively.]]
*** Actually, most of the Goseiger names could be stretched to being meaningful in one form or another. The two Skick members are Alata ("Winged") and Eri ("Airy"), the two Landick are Agri ("Agriculture") and Moune ("Mound" or "Mountain"), and the Seaick is Hyde ("Hydro").
** And then, there's the way all the villains are based on movie names. Some of them tell of their power, as well (Bakutofuji-ER - ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' - time reversal powers.)
* MonogenderMonsters: Averted. There's only been a few, but they were quite clearly female.
* MonumentalDamage: Epic 31 & 32. Makuin covers the TokyoTower in slime, then a ''ginormous'' Erurei Box leaking Makuin tops Tokyo City Hall.
* MoodWhiplash: The beginning of episode 45. After the grave, foreboding ending of episode 44, the first thing we see in episode 45 is... the Goseigers happily setting up Christmas decorations around the observatory as though nothing had happened. But then Alata lashes us back in the other direction by abruptly starting a serious discussion about the implications of the previous episode.
* {{Motifs}}: Each enemy faction has at least one motif going, particularly AnimalMotifs.
** Warstar has an insect motif, Yuumajuu has both a cryptid motif and an arthropod motif, Matrintis has a machine motif and a marine invertebrate motif, and [[spoiler:Burajira's Dark Headers]] have a HybridMonster motif.
* MultiformBalance: Via MechaExpansionPack.
* MundaneUtility: episode 7 has Agri asking Hyde to use the Memory Wash card as [[LampshadeHanging literal]] BrainBleach. Given [[BizarroEpisode the episodes's contents]]...
** Not to mention Gosei Knight transforming into the Grounddion Headder to [[TrainingFromHell "train"]] Agri...
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Likely unintentional, but the DVD-only ReunionShow, "Tenso Sentai Goseiger Returns: The Last Epic'' has the narrator reintroduce the team: "Alata. Eri. Moune. Hyde. These five Gosei Angels acted as Tenso Sentai Goseiger." Uh, mister narrator dude, you left somebody out.
* MythologyGag: The series [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger obviously isn't the first]] to have the word "''Gosei''" in the title[[note]]The meanings are different though. "Gosei" in [=Dairanger=] means "(Of the) Five Stars/Five-Star". Goseiger's has the Kanji "Protect", "Star/Planet" and "Person"; roughly, "Those who protect the Planet" or "Planet Guardians"[[/note]].
** The [[MakeMyMonsterGrow growth method]] for the MonstersOfTheWeek involve bugs which attach and make the monster giant. [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Now, where have we seen this before?]]
** Tyranno Header bears a strong resemblance to [=CarriGator=] from Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger}}. It even ends up in the same place as [=CarriGator's=] head, left foot.
** Gosei Knight's mecha form, Groundion, resembles a cross between [=GoGo Dump=] from Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger and Sei Shishi, the Lion mecha from Dairanger.
*** Even better, Gosei Ground's face has the same colors and scheme as [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger Muteki Shogun's]]. (Does it make sense now why its intro Epic had Sasuke and Tsuruhime guest-starring, with a Kappa MOTW?)
** If you squint a bit, Gosei Knight bears some resemblance to [[Series/ChoudenshiBioman Biohunter Silva]] - red eyes, silver body, has a gun for a weapon...
** The title for Epic 31: "[[Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger Never Give Up]] Goseiger". For that matter, Goseiger references quite a few things from Gaoranger, such as a Blue Ranger whose shark-based mecha forms the right arm of the combined mecha, and similar villain arc structures.
** Gosei Tiger resembles a cross between a halftrack and [[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Guardian Beast Saber Tiger]].
** Gosei Ultimate resembles the [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger OhBlockerRobo]], and even mimics the crossed-swords salute.
** And sealing the deal in Epic 50, [[spoiler:Blajira]]'s death scene is very similar to that of [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Juuzo.]]
** TheMovie involves [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger an alien princess from a distant planet, hunted by other aliens, and a new flying mecha.]]
** In Epic 38, [[spoiler: the Gosei Wonder Headders]] and Gosei Knight [[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie form a bridge to repair a train track.]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Universal Annihilation Army, Warstar.
** The Earth Condemnation Party, Yūmajū.
** The Machine Onslaught Empire, Matrintis.
** Burajira of the Messiah (of the "religious reference" and the "if it goes ''that far'' to sound good, it's gotta be nasty" variety.)
* NiceHat: The MechaExpansionPack includes these; special mention goes to the Seaick Brothers for having ''a pirate's hat WITH EYEPATCH''.
** Which also makes it HilariousInHindsight, considering the motif of [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger next season's Sentai...]]
* NoSocialSkills: All of the Goseigers to some degree, especially the Skick.
* NobleMaleRoguishMale: Hyde and Agri.
* NonMammalMammaries: The [=MotW=] from ep 9[[note]]A queen bee, by the way[[/note]]. Crosses into BizarreSexualDimorphism and FetishRetardant.
* NotQuiteFlight: The ''Windrive'' Splash Card.
* OhCrap: The general reaction of the team when they fire the Miracle Gosei Dynamic at [[spoiler:Burajira]] who not only stops it, but catches it, shrinks it, and then crushes it into nothing. With ''one hand.''
* OnlyOneName: The Goseiger come from a world that doesn't have family names.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: [[spoiler:Master Headder ''takes control of [=GoseiUltimate=]'' during the final battle.]]
* OvershadowedByAwesome: The series as a whole, having been sandwiched between the [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger crazy awesome samurai show the year before it]] and [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger the insanely cool pirate show the year afterwards.]] [[ArcFatigue Of course, there are some reasons why Goseiger suffered on its own.]]
* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Our Angels Are (Very Very) Different]]: The Gosei Angels are actually a race of humans born with mysterious powers who fled to another world 10,000 years ago so that they wouldn't disturb normal humans.
** Except for all the white feathers that keep showing up.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the team up with ''[[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Shinkenger]]''. When Kotoha meets Hyde and Moune, she wonders if having a pair of angels come to meet her means she's dead, then asks where their wings and halos are. The Goseigers quickly explain that they're not ''that'' kind of angels.
* PantheraAwesome: Gosei Tiger. But Groundion, being a [[ConservationOfNinjutsu stand-alone]] SixthRanger mecha, topped it later.
** Don't forget Sealeon and Skyon.
* PersonalityPowers: See ElementalPowers above.
** The [[BlowYouAway Skick]] tribe members are both optimistic, energetic, and a bit [[IncrediblyLamePun air-headed]] at times.
** The [[DishingOutDirt Landick]] siblings are [[{{Hotblooded}} always ready for a fight]] and are occaisionally [[RunningGag hard-headed]].
** The sole [[MakingASplash Seaick]] member of the team tends to play the role of OnlySaneMan, and is usually the most [[OverlyLongGag cool-headed]] of the group.
* {{Portmanteau}}: Most of the Gosei Cards are named this way.
** Expand Cards

*** ''Defenstorm'' (Defense + Storm)
*** ''Defenstream'' (Defense + Stream)

* PosthumousCharacter: Hyde's late partner, Magis.
* PowerGivesYouWings
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: "We Gosei Angels shall pass divine punishment upon those wicked souls!"
* ProductionForeshadowing: Seaick [=GoseiGreat=] was the first [[{{Pirates}} Pirate]] robot ever in Super Sentai. Then, [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger one year later]]...
** Also, a yellow attachment enabling a [[ThisIsADrill drill kick]] finisher a year and a half before [[Series/KamenRiderFourze another Toei production]] used a yellow attachment for a drill kick finisher.
* PunnyName: Yumaju is a play on "UMA" meaning "unidentified mystery animal", which is used to refer to "Cryptids".
** Also, some of the Goseigers have punny (or at least punnish) names: "Eri" possibly referring to air, "Agri" possibly referring to agriculture, and "Hyde" as in hydro. "Alata" is Latin for "winged", possibly explaining the [[SpellMyNameWithAnS unusual romanization.]]
** Robogog's full name is "Robogog of the 10-sai", which is both a pun based on "tensai" (which, depending on the kanji, can mean "genius" or "disaster") and on the fact that he uses ten attacks whose names in Japanese include "sai" in their names.
* RocketPunch: Gosei Great has a variation: It can launch all five of its Headders and control them remotely.
** Taken to the extreme when it combines with Datas Hyper to form Hyper Gosei Great. The newest finishing attack launches a grand total of '''15''' Headders all at once.
* RockyRollCall: Between Alata, Hyde, and Agri in Epic 23.
* SatanicArchetype: OurAngelsAreDifferent, but [[spoiler: Burajira of the Messiah is a fallen Gosei Angel and the manipulator behind the series' events. At one point, when Gosei Knight is being mind-controlled by him and Alata (Gosei Red) is trying to talk him down, we get each over his shoulder, GoodAngelBadAngel style.]]
* SecretKeeper: Nozomu.
* SecretSecretKeeper: [[spoiler: Professor Amachi.]]
* SeriousBusiness: Epic 5. Hyde. Shopping.
* ShoutOut
** Landick Gosei Great's [[FinishingMove Victory Charge]] resembles a [[Franchise/KamenRider Rider Kick]], particularly [[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Faiz's]], which produces a drill to strike the enemy.
** D'reptor was designed with claw-weapons and wings resembling [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Gigan]].
*** And Epic 15 involved something akin to an Oxygen Destroyer...
*** [=Zan-KT2=] in Epic 34 has some similarities to Moguera.
** There's some clear inspiration from GurrenLagann in Datas, especially with his limbs extending and gaining a new headpiece as [=DatasHyper=]. And in Epic 23, Mystic [=DatasHyper=] has a visible reaction to Eri and Moune getting their bikini tops blasted off.
*** Datas's transformation and personality is a massive ShoutOut to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdLRbhpWYiI Mic Sounders]] of ''GaoGaiGar'', with ThePowerOfRock replaced by boxing.
*** His Hyper form also has some noticeable parallels to [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger Red Puncher]]. Not only are both boxing-themed, they also have an extremely similar combination scheme with the main robot.
** The Epic 27 [=MotW=] is an aquatic creature that spends most of the time with just its head above water, looking a lot like a Zora of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' fame.
** Epic 32 has the Goseigers using a rather ''Franchise/UltraSeries''-esque TransformationSequence, flying towards the screen with their arms out in an UpUpAndAway pose.
** Epic 34 has Zan-K.T recite the Three laws of Mat-Roids, a twisted version of Asimov's [[ThreeLawsCompliant three laws]].
*** Still in the vein of {{Cultural Cross Reference}}s, Robogog himself is based off [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 the '03 Shredder,]] while [[spoiler:Matrintis-edition Bladerun]] has the helmet design of [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 '87 Shredder]] and Franchise/{{Predator}}-dreads.
*** Most of the time, the [=MotWs=] have an ability related to whichever movie they're named for - the Warstar named for ''Film/{{The War Of The Worlds|1953}}'' is responsible for TheVirus[[note]]Which would be an inversion, since viruses are what killed off the aliens in that movie.[[/note]], the Yuumaju named for ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' targets people in their sleep, the Matroid named for ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' can reverse time, and so on.
** The esque of the head of Gosei Ground to Ground Gosei Great is but similar to [[MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Unicorn Gundam]].
* ShoutOutThemeNaming: All of the villains are named after a different SciFi movies. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Annihilation_Army_Warstar The Other Wiki]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Condemnation_Group_Yuumajuu can fill you out]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_Onslaught_Empire_Matrintis on those]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brajira_of_the_Messiah names.]] More specifically:
** The Warstar are alien sci-fi. Examples: Warstar (''Franchise/StarWars''), Mons Drake (''Franchise/StarTrek''), and Dereputa (''Franchise/{{Predator}}'').
** The Yuumajuu are monster sci-fi, plus they have a relevant kanji in their name. Examples: Yuumajuu (''UMA 2010'', with "UMA" being a term that means "Unidentified Mysterious Animal"; the film's known in the US as ''Rise of the Gargoyles''), Makuin (''[[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt McQueen's]] Absolute Risk'', known in the US as ''Film/TheBlob''; with "maku" for "membrane"), and Kinggon (''Film/KingKong'', with "kin" for "muscle").
** The Matrintis are robot sci-fi, with English characters incorporated into the names as well. Examples: Matrintis (''Film/TheMatrix'', combined with "Atlantis"), Robogog (''Franchise/RoboCop''), and Metal-Alice (''Film/{{Metropolis}}'').
** The BigBad has two aliases, both of which come from TechNoir films: [[spoiler:Buredoran (''Film/BladeRunner'') and Brajira (''Film/{{Brazil}}''). "Buredoran" even gets altered to fit whatever group he's with, including "bu" for "warrior" with the Yuumajuu and becoming [=BuredoRUN=] with the Matrintis.]] His monsters are also named after fantasy series: Namono-Gatari (''Naruniakoku Monogatari'', aka ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia''), Bari-Boru-Dara (''Franchise/HarryPotter''), and Ro-O-Za-Ri (''Rodo Obu Za Ringu'', aka ''Film/LordOfTheRings'').
* SignificantAnagram: The species of Warstar's members are anagrams on species of bugs; Brasca = Scarab, Gubydal = Ladybug, Glus = Slug...Surprisingly, judging from the Kana, it's done by rearranging the letters in English first; the Kana and pronounciations are made after that.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Eri and her Skick Shot.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The characters all have fairly normal Japanese names, but the official romanizations are...quite unexpected, to say the least; particularly glaring was "Alata". Also, the names for the tribes- most English speakers would assume they're meant to be "Landic," "Seaic", and "Skyic", but instead the official romanizations were "Landick", "Seaick", and most bizarrely of all, "Skick", which is, according to the official Kana, pronounced "''Sukaikku''"/"Skaick".
** Another issue is Knight's main robo, [=GoseiGr[a/ou]nd=]. The card on the show spells it "Gosei Ground", but the Leon Cellular clearly pronounces it as "Grand".
** Even some subbers decide to transliterate the bad guys' names differently (Dereputa vs D'repter for example); one such case is actually referring to the Yuumajuu's BigBad as "[=McQueen=]" (the Japanese title of ''Film/TheBlob'' is "Makkuin no Zettai no Kiki" or "[=McQueen=]'s Absolute Risk"; roughly akin to calling the movie "Steve [=McQueen=] in: The Blob").
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler:Buredoran]]
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: Gosei Knight's card reader, the Leon Cellular, unlike [[GratuitousEnglish the team's Tensouders]], speaks pretty fluent English.
* TalkingWithSigns: Epic 18, the cuecard writers in the TV station start doing this after the MOTW takes control of the building.
* TerribleTrio: All three villain groups.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Implied with Alata and Dereputa
* TheRemnant: Upon the arrival of the Yumaju, Bladerun of the Comet is revealed as one of the few to have escaped sealing so long ago, shedding his disguise and revealing himself to be Bladerun of the Chupacabra (with the "Bu" being the kanji for "war").
* ThisIsADrill: The Sai[[note]]Rhino[[/note]] Headder. Landick Gosei Great's finishing move with it is a drill kick.
** It's also a running design theme for [[spoiler:Blajira]]'s Headders...[[{{Foreshadowing}} and not without reason.]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Moune and Eri.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Implied to be the case with Professor Amachi and his wife, although [[TheFaceless she is never seen.]]
* TheVirus: Used by one MonsterOfTheWeek to turn children into geniuses, then into Biibis.
** TruthInTelevision: parents all over were ''deliberately'' infecting their own children with it to turn them into geniuses. Make no mistake, education in Japan is SeriousBusiness. Also counts as a TakeThat.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The ''Camoumirage'' Focus Card.
* WaxOnWaxOff: Agri in Epic 7. [[BizarroEpisode Then again]]...
* WithOurSwordsScene: With a twist. Since Brajira [[spoiler: basically cannibalized his teammates to get the power to seal the Yumaju long ago, even though the three working together couldn't do so]] Agri, Eri, Moune, and Hyde figure that perhaps Alata could [[spoiler: take out Brajira on his own with their powers if they were willing to sacrifice themselves.]] Of course, they found another, less drastic means in the end.
