Groups with members from multiple Sentai/Ranger teams.
AKB48 is an all-girl idol group formed in 2005 by Yasushi Akimoto. While their primary goal is entertaining the public, a few of them spend their free time fighting bad guys. These are the girls that are Rangers.
Minami Takahashi / Takamina / HurricaneRedThe General Manager and unofficial captain of the '48 family, she is also a trained ninja from Hayate's Way Ninja Academy.
- Blow You Away - As a Wind Ninja, it's part of her standard repitoire of moves.
- Ninja - Obviously.
- Pintsized Powerhouse - Takamina's probably the shortest character on the site, tied with Yukie, standing at 5'10.5". However, that only makes her that much harder to see...
- Playing with Fire - The Dry Gun
- Rank Up - Was recently promoted to General Manager of the entire '48 family.
- Team Dad
- The Leader: Is usually a Type II
Mayu Watanabe / Mayuyu / Big OneThe second Senbatsu of AKB48, currently in Team A. Also a cyborg.
- Ship Tease - Her and Kei
- Ridiculously Human Robot : Justified Trope - Technically, she's still part-human
Mariko Shinoda / ShinkenPinkThe oldest active AKB48 member, currently in Team A. Also a samurai of the Shinoda family.
- Blow You Away - Her elemental motif.
- Katanas Are Just Better - Shinkenmaru
- Paper Fan of Doom - The Heaven Fan, though it's technically a Japanese war fan.
- Rank Up - After Takamina is promoted to AKB48 general manager, Mariko is promoted to Team A captain.
- Samurai - As with Takamina, it's obvious.
- Troll - To some extent. She loves trolling her fans and the Research Students, but she isn't as bad as most examples of the trope.
Oliver Jonas / MagiRedA wizard who was sent back through time to find the cause of the apocalypse with his sister...only now does it sound like an anime pitch.
Courtney Jonas / TimeRedOliver's twin sister. Which is odd, considering they look nothing alike.
- Time Machine - The Time Shadow Jet
John Jones / Tavunak / Stag BusterA headhunter from a parallel dimension exiled to Earth. He hides as a detective and uses the Stag Buster gear as a vigilante. Sound familiar, Smallville fans?
- Expy - of the character of the same name
- Alliterative Name
Mamoru Hoseki / Crimson BusterThe leader of the black ops unit of the Gobusters organization. He somehow gained the ability to fuse with his partner Alsatian to create the Diamond Buster.
- Doesn't Like Guns
- Dual Wielding
- Fusion Dance
- Meaningful Name: Hoseki means jewel, referring to him being half of Diamond Buster
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Alsatian's Blue Oni
- Psychic Link: With Alsatian
