Added DiffLines:

* ColorCharacter: Another "[English color] [team prefix]" Sentai.

Added DiffLines:

* MiniDressOfPower: Part of the Maskman girls' suits. From this point on, most every Sentai heroine has this, with exceptions being ''[[Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman Fiveman]]'' and ''[[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Dekaranger]]''.


* ShoutOut: Homages mecha anime ''[[Anime/CombattlerV Choudenji Robo Combattler V]]'', ''[[Anime/VoltesV Choudenji Machine Voltes V]]'' and ''[[Anime/{{Daimos}} Toushou Daimos]]'' both with Maskman's mecha, and key plot elements: The main hero's girlfriend is actually the princess of the invaders he fights as in ''Daimos'', and Prince Igam is looked down upon by the rest of Tube for being related to the traitor Princess Iyal, mirroring Prince Heinel from ''Voltes V''. Galaxy Robo's Aura Road Spark is also a ShoutOut to Combattler V's Grand Dasher Wave. Ironically, the first two series mentioned are also [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff big hits with Filipinos]] like ''Maskman'' is.

* DubNameChange: For some reason, when this Sentai was aired in Brazil, Takeru's name was slightly altered to "Takeo", while Haruka and Momoko were respectively rechristened "Sayaka" ([[NamesTheSame no relation to]] [[Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman Change Mermaid]]) and "Keiko".

* GagSub: In the CS Centrl fansub of the series they took Okelampa's CatchPhrase above and even though he exactly said "Yare yare", the subtitle will say amongst things like "Whatever..."[[note]]which is, in context, the most correct translation, pretty much along the lines of Kyon's "good grief" in LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya.[[/note]] or "I need a bath..." or "I need a raise..." Could also go to DeadpanSnarker territory with lines like, "[[StatingTheSimpleSolution Why don't the Maskmen shoot me first?]]" It gets even more ridiculous and crazier in latter episodes with lines as "Don't worry, Kenta! You still have *insert all one-episode girl that interacted with him from the previous episodes, ''with the episode numbers mentioned''*, you goddamn playboy!" (Note that this might cross the line since this is said after [[spoiler:Kenta's girl of the week just tragically died]])

* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Takeru, being a racecar driver, was given the Spin Cruiser buggy as his personal vehicle, the only thing that could thwart a monster's scheme. Two episodes later, he manages to master the [[LimitBreak God Hand]] move. Fast forward a little and he's also Jet Canon's usual pilot, not mention the fact he's Igam's and Kiro's rival.
