Film: Aikoku Sentai Dai-Nippon
Toh!!
Pretty much every character (numerous times)

Aikoku Sentai Dai-Nippon (愛国戦隊大日本, "Patriotic Squadron Great Japan") is an affectionate parody of the popular Super Sentai series, made by Studio Gainax (yes, that Gainax, except they weren't actually called that yet) in 1982, which is also a satire of the Russo-Japanese War.

The title team is based on Japanese culture (of course) and the villains, the evil Red Bear Empire (led by Death Kremlin), are Russians. In this "episode", Red Bear confronts our heroes with the shark monster Minsk Mask, while attempting to brainwash the children of Japan by swapping out the pages of their textbooks with red paper. Shinji Higuchi worked on the special effects.

You can watch the whole thing online.
