"Choushinsei Flashman!"
―Flashmen announcing their arrival[src]

Choushinsei Flashman (超新星フラッシュマン Chōshinsei Furasshuman), individually known as the Flashmen (フラッシュマン Furasshuman), is the 10th Super Sentai, originally a group of five children that were kidnapped by the alien group known as the Alien Hunters, for the sake of the Reconstructive Experiment Empire Mess - who wanted samples of humans from Earth to experiment on. They were rescued by the Flash alien race, which took each one to a different planet of the Flash solar system for training. Each of them was trained separately from the others in a range of superpower abilities that will allow them to fight Mess. When they finally return to Earth in 1986 to combat Mess, who is now trying to invade it, they use the opportunity to search for their birth parents. They later learn that their time on earth will be cut short. Their birth planet's atmosphere has become deadly to them and after a year, they will die from what is known as the Anti-Flash Phenomenon.

Years later, the Space Empire Zangyack invaded Earth. This threat was so great that all of the first 34 Super Sentai, including Flashman, were needed to oppose them. The 34 Sentai put up a valiant fight against the ground forces, but when the Zangyack fleet itself attacked them, Akarenger told everyone to combine their powers and save the Earth. This destroyed the Zangyack fleet and resulted in the loss of their powers, which resurfaced as Ranger Keys, which were dispersed throughout the universe.

The keys were collected by AkaRed, and later utilized by the 35th Super Sentai, the Gokaigers, a group of five people from different planets who came to Earth in search of the Greatest Treasure in the Universe. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Space Pirates Appear The greater power of Flashman was initially taken by Basco ta Jolokia, but was granted to the Gokaigers by Dai after Basco's death. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 49: The Greatest Treasure in the Universe After the Gokaigers finally defeated Zangyack, they returned the Ranger Keys before they left Earth to find the second Greatest Treasure in the Universe. It is presumed the Flashman got their powers back as with all the other Super Sentai. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

The Flashmen, alongside the Changemen, Biomen, Dynamen, and Turborangers, emerge through a dimensional wall.

The Flashman, among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, were caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident. They were presumably sent to the dimensional riftIcon-crosswiki.png, under the pretense of being defeated, by Kamen Rider DecadeIcon-crosswiki.png while he was apparently hunting the Sentai teams. When his and Captain Marvelous' ruse was revealed, Flashman appeared with the other Super Sentai through the dimensional wallIcon-crosswiki.png, they then fought alongside all the other Sentai teams and Kamen RidersIcon-crosswiki.png against the alliance of Dai-ShockerIcon-crosswiki.png and Dai-Zangyack.

The Space Pirates Return

The Gokaigers made use of the Ranger Keys in their fight with the Zyuohgers and Bangray.

Evidently, the Flashmen loaned their Ranger Keys - at the request of Gai Ikari - to the Gokaigers whom had temporarily returned to Earth to find and bestow the Great King's Credential to the Zyuohgers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 28: The Space Pirates Return Their powers were returned when the Gokaigers left for space once more having achieved their quest.

Legend Sentai Devices

The Choushinsei Flashman Ranger Keys (超新星フラッシュマンレンジャーキー Chōshinsei Furasshuman Renjā Kī) are what became of the Flashmen's powers after they along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

Any of these keys allow a Gokaiger to assume the form of any of the Flashmen. The Greater Power of this Sentai Group was stolen by Basco, but was later retrieved when Basco was defeated after he infused the Greater Power into the Flashman Keys.
