** Starninger could be a reference to the relationship between SuperSentai and PowerRangers: He is a westernized version of the other rangers and both find the other's methods unusual, which mirrors the fact that PowerRangers series are perceived as more serious and violent by Japanese fans while Sentai is seen as more oddball and aloof by Americans. Starninger notably comes off as ignorant to the way the rest of the team works, but is slowly starting to enjoy them, similar to how the American Sentai fandom is more of a recent development.

** Also from ''Kyoryuger'', the Ninja Ichibantou's transformation call (NIN! NIN! NIN! NIN NINI NIN!) calls to mind [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Utsusemimaru's "Dororon Shinobi Change"]] from Brave 27.

** The Kibaoni gather fear in liquid form, rather like the Gedoushu filling the Sanzu River.

** The Kibaoni gather fear in liquid form, form in hopes of reviving their BigBad, rather like the Gedoushu filling the Sanzu River.River to enable them to invade Earth (also allowing their leader Dokukou to escape the seal.)
***Also, how is the task completed? The female enemy general loses a loved one, causing her own pain to create a surge of this liquid emotion greater than all the monsters' attacks on humans put together, instantly allowing the BigBad to walk the earth again (mind you, the losing a loved one aspect is more ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' than ''Shinkenger.'') Said villain also meets her end by being absorbed by her leader.



**And of course the SixthRanger being a Gold with blue sleeves and a star on his face.

* It's the first time in ''40 years'' that the rangers use the Japanese way of labelling colors instead of English.[[note]]Though they typically place the actual MilestoneCelebration at the end of it (i.e. the next season.) Note that KaizokuSentaiGokaiger was just four years ago.[[/note]]

** Forming Haoh Shurikenjin involves [=BisonKing=] forming two cannons over the main body's shoulders, just like [[Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger RedPuncher on King Pyramider.]] Additionally, both basically stand up to transform and can use both of the team mecha in the combination.

** Starninger is also one gigantic love letter to both [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger Jiraiya/Ninja Black]] and [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricanger Shurikenger]], being a ninja who is introduced speaking snippets of English at random, wearing mostly black when not transformed, and again being extremely cowboy-themed (as Jiraiya was introduced in ''Kakuranger''). He's even Japanese-American like Jiraiya was, and has a secondary musical theme like Shurikenger had.

** In the episode with Ninja Red and Hurricane Red, Yakumo gets chided by Yosuke for using magic to float in the air. We later see the Yokai and Takaharu travel back to 2005. That's not just the time of the most recent Sentai where all the members were family members, but they were a team of magicians just like Yakumo ([[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger Mahou Sentai Magiranger]] for those less than familiar with Super Sentai).
