Best Super Sentai Series

Zordon2010

The Top Ten

1 Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger

This is such a great series. After watching it I was simply amazed about how great it was. At first I thought it would be a tribute series but it was much more than that. It was well worth watching and I would encourage you to watch it. Simply an Amazing show! Lets Go! Lets! Gokaiger!

Hands down the best! Everything good and fun about Super Sentai is represented here. The main characters are all really likeable... And how can you go wrong with the pirate theme as these anti-heroes (initially) become true heroes! A fun ride in every way. I will definitely revisit this season again after I'm through watching. I you only own one season of Super Sentai, this should be the one!

Beyond simply a tribute series, Gokaiger utilized and perfected just about every nessisary element of a good (or rather, great) Sentai series. Between the costumes, the previous sentai references, the characters (including character growth and interaction) and the sheer scope of the season, Gokaiger was brilliant. The only crucial flaw would be the Zankyak not entirley living up to their hype as powerful villains, although the inclusion of Basco as a secondary villain more than made up for this.

Each characther have story, friendship is on point, teamwork and also great storyline! props to bandai make the anniversary sentai looks great and forever will be remembered

2 Chōjin Sentai Jetman

The only weakness on Jetman was over-act by the actors (on some scenes)
But...
The rest is just masterpiece among sentai series.
Story, character, models, villain, songs and of course... Black condor
While most of sentai focusing on heroes greatness journey, this gold, takes time to build villain character too. The way I see it, no other sentai does that. Along the series, you may sympathize both heroes and villain.
Well, this sentai maybe little bit for adults (based on theme-setting-story).
To make it short, this Sentai not only lovely just because they are Sentai series, but they can live it with the stories itself. Simply best.

The concept of the superheroes is clear: bird ranger. This affects the costumes, which is, awesome.

*unique plot. unlike the other super sentai, Jetman begins the story with unexpected conditions: earthship destrotyed, only one Jetman remains (Ryu Tendo) and the commander Aya Odagiri. It forces them to search for the other rangers from every corner of Japan.
the other rangers are usual humans, common people. they are not actual rangers. this is what's really interesting and the plus point from this sentai.

*unique characters: each person in team has their own characteristics, Ryu the patriot, Raita the goof, Ako the tomboyish, Kaori the feminine, Gai the arrogant rebellious (this is the most unique one, I highly appreciate it).

*moral values in every episode. there are always moral values that the serial writer wants to share to the audience. This is a very very good point that Jetman has. this is what makes it outstanding.

*tends to be adult-audience. ...more

Most probably the most awesome costume and character design and they were so much life in this story that I couldn't help watch it over and over especially the ending, even though it ended sad but it was for the best and to this day I still bow down Black Condor as my Super Sentai idol, heck yeah

-Unique villains
-Good character development
-Moral values
-Cool suits
-Unique motif
-Gai
-Dark tone

3 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger

Aired in 2009, using a samurai and other aspects of Japanese culture as its motif. Like Go-onger before it, its theme song single also ranked highly on the Oricon, reaching #4 on the Daily Ranking Charts on its day of release. Shinkenger featured the first crossover with the Kamen Rider Series it aired alongside: Kamen Rider Decade. It also features the first female red warrior, introduced towards the end of the series. -

The BEST Super Sentai series I have watched throughout my life. It's been about 7 years and it's still my favorite! I like how they used Japanese culture which was the samurai part and the origami which was really unique. Being the first Sentai series to first ever cross over with Kamen Rider(Decade) was really awesome! All of the characters grew together as a team and really showed a family bond or a very friendly bond towards eachother. The characters really keep you wanting to watch it and they are really funny without being really cheesy. This also can be considered a drama which I also find really awesome and unique because, other sentai did not feel like a sort of drama and, I enjoyed the little parts of drama they put in here! Overall this series was a huge hit with the song and the cast! The cast was amazing and this series was just too good! I wish they can make another comeback!

The Shinkenger characters kept me captivated throughout the series. They really grew together as a team. The villains were awesome too. I had no trouble racing through this show. Although it does suffer from "mecha overload" and there are too few Chiaki episodes, I'm finding it hard to complain about the series at all.

MY FAVORITE SUPER SENTAI

4 Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger

Aired in 2004 and uses a crime fighting motif with its heroes fighting extraterrestrial criminals. Dekaranger features the first semi-regular seventh hero (DekaMaster) and three additional heroines who appear once each throughout the series: DekaSwan (episode 36), DekaBright (ep. 40), and DekaGold (Dekaranger The Movie: Full Blast Action). This series started the tradition of a "passing the torch" segment after the ending credits of the series finale: the red warrior of the series that has just ended interacts with the red warrior of the upcoming series. -

This is the best. No one can be better! Everyone should be liking it! I really like it more than others. It is just so awesome NONE CAN BEAT IT IT IS AWESOME. IT IS BOSS@

I love how jasmine arrested captain marvelous in the gokaiger series

So much fun and intense!

5 Gosei Sentai Dairanger

Dairanger was the second sentai I watched and one I my all time favorites. Great costumes great action great choreography, what more could you want? This show set the be high when it comes to out of suit fights. It has a Chinese martial arts theme and it's really fun. Only complaints from me are that I think Kiba ranger was not used that well and the ending is a little out there... But that just ads to the fun. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.

It's a great show that has a lot of well written characters, some tense drama, makes EVERY member of the team feel important, and Is just a blast to watch and enjoy. The costumes great, mecha great, the villians are creative and fun

This show heavily affected the franchise with making suitless fights even better. Also this is probably some of the best mecha action one can find in a Sentai. There are great characters to follow with both heroes and villains and my goodness the fights are so great!

Woh woh woh woh woh! The song is so catchy, I've literally been humming and singing this song ever since I'm like 4-5 years old . The dark tone combines with the theme of Chinese martial art sets the mood really well!

6 Mirai Sentai Timeranger

It was the first Super Sentai I ever watched, as my favorite Power Ranger series was Timeforce. The series has an inspiring theme of defying your destiny. Because the four rangers come from a future where they all have a foretold destiny, they bring with them their baggage and cynicism. But due to the Red Ranger being from the present, he is a staunch idealist and eventual convinces the other four that they have power to alter their own future.

This was the First Sentai series that I watched and it has the darkest storyline in Super Sentai I really liked watching the episodes again and again for 2 weeks it was a great Sentai Series I just only wished they made a second season for timeranger with new villains from the future

Aired in 2000 and featured a time travel motif (four of the five main heroes are police officers from 3000). Timeranger features the first additional hero whose costume is the same color as one of the original heroes. -

Use formation, not gattai, show that sentai come from future, is the best

7 Ninja Sentai Kakuranger

Aired in 1994 and had a ninja motif, and a motif loosely based on the classic Journey to the West. As another anniversary series, the crossover Super Sentai World was produced featuring the characters of Fiveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Dairanger and Kakuranger. Kakuranger also featured the first five-piece secondary robot. -

I think this season was the best, especially because of the Flowery Kunoichi Team.

So underrated! This season was so funny, but had an episode or two that made me tear up. The 3rd greatest season of the 1990's (next to Jetman and Megaranger and Zyuranger and Dairanger).

8 Tokumei Sentai Go-Buster

A very dramatic, heavy super sentai, filled nicely with some humor here and there. To be honest I teared up at some touching moments. I rarely felt that in sentai series. Great background music also contributed a lot.
The action is great, mecha fight is good too.
Plus a very clever villain Enter.
Well-rounded series, one of the best!

It is best super sentai ever. The villains Enter and Escape are best. New storyline, good graphics. Amazing!

Watched all the episodes in nearly 2 weeks. Engaging episodes that keep you captivated and wanting more. Based around cyberspace, villian Enter and the rest of the go busters have great character development. A must watch for all!

First sentai series in which rangers have buddy-roid partners. Enter and Escape are amazing villains. The grunts and metaloids are also good. I recommend it to everyone. Please watch it.

9 Denji Sentai Megaranger

Aired in 1997 using electronics and space travel as a motif. Megaranger featured the first silver-colored hero and the evil Nejiranger team who serve as villains for an entire story arc. -

One of the best sentai with its own original evil sentai hero team

I just started watching Japanese sentai this year but have watched Power Rangers since Mighty Morphin. I skipped seasons after in Space and have watched it sparingly over the years. I would have to say after watching MegaRanger and Starting TimeRanger they are my top two series. I loved Timeforce as well.

10 Tensou Sentai Goseiger

Tensou Sentai Goseiger was the first Super Sentai series that I ever watched from beginning to end, and it has remained one of my favorites. The series may not be perfect, but it has a TON of heart. The Goseigers themselves are quite likable (and become more so over time), the villain does his job extremely well, the action is great, and it all leads to a very satisfying conclusion. I'd actually recommend this series to anyone looking for a basic introduction to Super Sentai.

Oh, and Gosei Knight is a supreme badass.

The show was great! I like the angel theme, and the most exciting part in here is the final villain who I really didn't expect to be the final one, I like all of the episode of this Super Sentai Series!

This should be higher it's my favorite series but I'm still happy it's in the top ten

It was my first sentai

The Contenders

11 Juken Sentai Gekiranger

With an easy going story at first episodes, it was unexpected that it's plot has complicated enough conflicts. And it's story feels interesting with their way that the way to become stronger is to training more n more without giving up...

Kung Fu themed sentai with awesome music that is inspired by East Asian cultures. The majority of the cast is likable. The main villian himself is a ranger which is always awesome.

Like the first primary 3 team res yellow girl and blue

Geki chopper was amazing
I liked the bat, the elephant and the shark masters
great plot
the villains were good

12 Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger

Aired in 2002 and used a ninjutsu motif, taking elements from Kakuranger as well as Liveman. Hurricaneger features the rival Gouraiger team with insect-themed powers, the free agent Shurikenger, and a series of smaller mecha that serve as weapons for the teams' robots. -

This series was the first to feature a red member that has NO indoor voice, it was also the one series with it's very own reunion movie

Because I love power rangers ninja storm that is why I love it

This series doesn't get its due among fans. It has some pretty amazing episodes, and then you have SHURIKENGER! BEST SIXTH RANGER!

13 Choujuu Sentai Liveman

Aired in 1988 and featured the first addition of two new team members to a three-person team as well as the first combination of two individual robots into a single powerful robot. -

Their costumes are extremely amazing looking. They are also like the predecessors to go onger with their ranger colors and zord formations.

My second ever sentai and I loved it I love most* characters and the Zords are awesome and green and yellow are my favorite it's really good

En Latinoamérica la rompió, todos los recordamos

14 Engine Sentai Go-onger

Aired in 2008, featuring an ecological theme: the antagonists are seeking to pollute the Earth. It also features the first female additional hero who joins with a male additional hero, bringing the team size to seven regular members, and the first twelve-piece combining robot. Go-onger was also the first Super Sentai Series to have its theme song single reach the top-ten of the Oricon Weekly charts at #4, after selling 22,000 records in its first week of being released and the theatrical release of its VS Series entry Engine Sentai Go-onger vs. Gekiranger to commemorate the 15th entry of the VS Series. -

I love this Series. It is one of my favorites out of the Super Sentai Series. I still Have more to watch and have watched about six of them. LOVE IT!.

This show relates more to Carranger

My favorite yellow sentai next to yellow 4, shinken yellow, tq yellow, gokai yellow, and ciara hanna along with female yellow sentai

15 Dengeki Sentai Changeman

Aired in 1985 and featured a motif based on legendary creatures in European traditions. Changeman was the first series to feature a team cannon formed from the five team members' individual weapons. -

16 Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger

Aired in 1992 and used dinosaurs (and other extinct megafauna) as a motif. Zyuranger was later adapted into Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for American audiences, beginning the Power Rangers franchise. -

The tiger ranger costume is cursed! Only a man can wear it, that is the reason for the actresses being put in the fates the were in :-(

May the lord have mercy on whoever is the Yellow Gokaiger.

More suitable for a younger audience

But still okay

17 Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive

Aired in 1999 using an emergency service motif. GoGoFive is the first series since Jetman to only feature five heroes. Additional heroes appear in one of its V-Cinema productions. -

An awesome siblings team ever. The Mecha looks so great and so real. And don't forget they have a bad-ass siblings enemy too.

This is one of the most underrated sentai series. But if you followed the story I bet you'll like it.
All characters have strong personalities and this is the best family team in super sentai (from formation, personalities, relation to the greatest tag team ever).
While the story itself is very epic and worth to wait for every episodes.
And personally I think this is the most realistic sentai. It has no mystic power nor too futuristic gadget and mecha.

Damn underrated! It should be in the top 10! 😤

18 Choushinsei Flashman

Aired in 1986 and was the first series to add a second giant robot for the team to fight with. The team members' powers come from their upbringings on planets with different environmental conditions. -

It was also the first sentai team where Red DIDN'T pilot a jet machine!

19 Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman

Aired in 1990 and featured both an antagonistic team of villainous counterparts and a team power upgrade armor. -

Possibly the last super sentai show to have enemy fighter planes in it until Ohranger, then Go-Onger.

20 Mahou Sentai Magiranger

The themes of courage and family being able to overcome everything are really positive and uplifting, the character development is the best ever due to how any given episode focuses on two characters and the relationship between rather than just one character by themselves, MagiKing is the best main mech, and the story structure is just exquisite; three main arcs, each with several mini-arcs, resulting in the storyline constantly building up, making each episode feel like it matters, and they do. The magic is innovative and creative, leading to unique fight scenes and finishers unlike anything any other sentai has to offer. The villains have a regular changing of the guard, keeping things fresh throughout the show's run, and the Infershia Pantheon is absolutely awe-inspiring, each member well fleshed out despite only arriving in the last third of the show.

Aired in 2005 uses a magic motif with mecha that are the heroes transformed. Magiranger features an entire family of heroes: the core team are all brothers and sisters, the sixth hero marries one of the core team members, and rarely used seventh and eighth heroes are the parents to the core team. -

An awesome siblings team ever. The Mecha looks so nostalgic (just like super robot era in 70s) and so awesome. And don't forget they have a bad-ass enemy too.

This is best super sentai ever. Super villains, costumes and story. Best ever!
