In every Sentai series, the fight between good and evil is illustrated, with the good side winning most of the time. The basic premise of the series is that a group of five (in some cases fewer) people gain special powers (magical or technological), wear colored outfits, and use advanced weapons and martial arts skills to battle powerful beings from other planets and/or dimensions threatening to take over the Earth. In most of the episodes, after the team has beaten an army of evil creatures ("grunts") and the "monster of the week", they call for huge robotic vehicles/animals ("mechas") that can combine to form one giant robot to fight an enlarged version of the monster. Sentai series with the giant robot element are specifically known as Super Sentai. Each Sentai series is set in a different fictional universe, with the exception of specials that feature a teaming up with the previous Sentai.

Mecha

The main theme that makes a Super Sentai series are the various mecha that the teams use. The two original teams, Goranger and J.A.K.Q. solely had vehicles, which is what designated them originally as "Sentai." What originally denoted a "Sentai" from a "Super Sentai" was the use of a giant robot. The first series to have such was Battle Fever J with its Battle Fever Robo. This was followed by the first giant robot that transformed from a vehicle, Denshi Sentai Denziman and its DaiDenjin, and then by the first combining, or "gattai" (合体?) robot, Sun Vulcan Robo. The first time a team had a second robot occurred in Choushinsei Flashman with Flash King and Flash Titan. The first combination of two robots, or "Super Gattai" (スーパー合体 Sūpā Gattai?) occurred in Choujuu Sentai Liveman with Live Robo and Live Boxer combining into Super Live Robo. Kousoku Sentai Turboranger featured the first transforming base robot, Turbo Builder. The first third robot was Tetraboy in Choujin Sentai Jetman alongside JetIcarus and JetGaruda. The first seven-piece combination was Ultimate DaiZyujin in Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, a number only recently surpassed by Super DaiBouken and Ultimate DaiBouken in GoGo Sentai Boukenger, which are comprised of nine and ten mecha, respectively (a twelve mecha formation was shown in the series as well, though non-canonically). The first multiple combination mecha appeared in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, with all of the Power Animals being interchangeable with each other in the main combinations.
