* ReleaseDateChange: Was meant to launch on February 15th, 2015, ended up moved back a week after [=ToQger=] 46 was pre-empted for news coverage, meaning that episode 47, it's finale, needed the timeslot.

* CastingGag: Megumi Han, the voice of Kyuemon, is also Sayla Mass on ''Gundam The Origin'', and Kyuemon actually gets a HumongousMecha down the line... but it's based on the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Qubeley.]] Someone got their references crosswired...


* ActorAllusion:
** Not surprisingly, [[Creator/KotonoMitsuishi Ariake No Kata]] has her own InTheNameOfTheMoon sequence, but the kicker is [[Manga/SailorMoon the moon actually appearing in it!]]
** Done indirectly with Creator/TomokazuSeki as the voice of Nekomata, who's otherwise based off of Jibanyan from ''Franchise/YokaiWatch'' (where Seki voices another character, Whisper). In episode 26, they even give him Jibanyan's usual VerbalTic.
** Yoshi Sudarso's cameo has him being rescued by [=AoNinger=]. Yoshi plays the '''Blue''' [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Dino Charge Ranger]]. This particular reference came full circle when it was revealed at Power Morphicon 2016 that Yoshi's brother Peter was cast as [=AoNinger=]'s ''Power Rangers'' counterpart, the Blue [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel Ninja Steel Ranger]].
* CastingGag:
** There's one monster that [[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger gives out spiked gifts]] to the public?
** Did you know [[Creator/KotonoMitsuishi Ariake no Kata]] and [[Creator/RyotaroOkiayu Mangetsu]] were [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Murrue Ramius and Andrew Waltfeld?]]

* MeaningfulReleaseDate: The series debuted on February 22nd; known as Ninja Day since "2" sounds like "ni", or "Nin-nin-nin", even if that wasn't the show's [[ReleaseDateChange intended launch date]].
** The MilestoneCelebration episode falls on April 12th (''yo-i-ni''), with the NextEpisodePreview dubbing it "Good Ninja Day" (佳い忍日). However, should it air without the ReleaseDateChange affecting the show's schedule it would be in April 5th, the premiere day of the first episode of ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger''.
* MilestoneCelebration: This series celebrates the 40th anniversary of ''Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger''. To celebrate it, the April 12th episode [[spoiler:will have the Ninninger team up with Ninja Red and Hurricane Red, with Akarenger making a surprise cameo]].
* MythologyGag: [[MythologyGag/ShurikenSentaiNinninger They have their own page.]]

** Not just the Yokai term[[note]]Though they're generally called the Kibaoni Army for convenience's sake.[[/note]], but a lot of Yokai names in NinjaSentaiKakuranger are going to appear here. Of special note, Gashadokuro was TheDragon back then and a MonsterOfTheWeek here!

* NoExportForYou: Surprisingly, [[AvertedTrope averted]] in South Korea. They skipped ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm[=/=]NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger'', going from ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' to ''Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger'', and then skipped ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', all because of their overtly Japanese motifs of ninja and samurai. You'd think then, that ''Ninninger'' would be skipped as well. But nope, they're getting ''[[DubNameChange Power Rangers]] [[CompletelyDifferentTitle Ninja Force]]''.
* PropRecycling: Past Youkai defeated by the team tend to reappear during their subsequent training. For example, Kamaitachi, the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Youkai of the Week]] in Shinobi 1, reappeared in a training simulation in Shinobi 4.
** The Hyper Battle DVD brings back the {{Mooks}} from ''Kakuranger'' and ''Hurricanger!''
** Played straight in Shinobi 26, with a new Nekomata. Except it's called Mataneko. And the watch face is a different color. And new VerbalTic too. But yeah, mostly the same.
*** Then it's done ''yet again'' in Shinobi 42. This time they add a pair of glasses to it and call it [[PunnyName Meganekomata.]] And it's a different VA this time... because it's really Tsumuji in disguise.
