Kousoku Sentai Turboranger (高速戦隊ターボレンジャー Kōsoku Sentai Tāborenjā, translated into English as High Speed Squadron Turboranger) is the 13th entry of Super Sentai series produced by Toei Company and Bandai. It was originally aired on TV Asahi from March 4, 1989, to February 23, 1990, with a total of 51 episodes.

During its first episode, Turboranger celebrated the 10th anniversary of Super Sentai with a teamup of the previous 10 Super Sentai, even though by modern count, they are the 13th Sentai team. This occurred because at the time of Turboranger's debut, Toei had marked the Super Sentai series as beginning with Battle Fever J. However, when Toei marketed Chouriki Sentai Ohranger as the 19th anniversary of the Super Sentai series, Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. were retroactively included as part of the Super Sentai series.

Turboranger was dubbed in South Korea as Turbo Guerrilla (터보 유격대 Teobo Yugyeogdae).

The average ratings of the series was 7.6%.[1]


Twenty thousand years ago, the Fairy race assisted humans in a battle against the Boma Tribes and successfully sealed the Boma Tribes away. However, due to modern day pollution and man's destruction of nature, the power of Fairy magic has weakened, allowing the seal to be broken and the Tribes escape. Seelon, the last of the fairies, with the help of Dr. Dazai, summoned five high school seniors. As children, they were showered with the "flames of spirit" of the fallen fairies in a forest and can now hear Seelon's voice. Donning powered suits, the product of a combination of Seelon's magic and Dr. Dazai's science, the five youths became the Turborangers, juggling days of fighting with their regular school lives, in order to defeat the Boma Tribes.

Stage Shows


  • Turboranger is the first Sentai season to use the word "-ranger" in its title (although Goranger also included the word "-ranger" in its name, this was not official, since that series' official name was actually Gorenger).
  • Along with its predecessor Liveman, Turboranger celebrated the anniversary of the Sentai franchise with a special tribute to the past 10 Sentai. Although Turboranger is the thirteenth series, at the time of the series's debut it was considered the eleventh, as Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. were not counted as Super Sentai until later.
  • This is the only Sentai to completely lack any of the team members doing "roll calls" or stating their transformed names after transforming (both individually or as a team); instead, the camera simply gives the viewers a wide angle shot of the team, and although they assume a traditional Sentai pose, they do not say their ranger name. As a result, when Red Turbo reappears in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai, original footage is used.
  • Although Turboranger never got a Power Rangers adaptation, the American-exclusive Titanium Ranger of Lightspeed Rescue was based off of the Turboranger suits.
  • This is the first Sentai wherein all the main heroes are high school students. This motif is later used by Megaranger
  • Like Hikari Sentai Maskman and Dai Sentai Goggle V, Turboranger's original title was scrapped only to be used for another Sentai series. The original planned title for the series was to be Gekisou Sentai Carranger, which would ultimately be taken by the season it would be parodied by. To add to the irony, Carranger's American adaptation regained the 'Turbo' part of the name as Power Rangers Turbo.[2]
  • Turboranger's car motif was due to Toei capitalizing on the Mini 4WD boom in Japan at the time when the show was being developed.
  • Turboranger was the first Sentai to have a base that transforms into a robot to combine with two mechas, rather than a flying fortress that carries the mechas.
  • Turboranger is considered the first Sentai of the "Heisei Era," with its entire run and production occurring after the emergence of Emperor Akihito (Heisei) to the Japanese throne after the death of his father Hirohito (Showa) in January, 1989. Although the final six Liveman episodes also aired in the Heisei era, the series was mostly produced and aired in the Showa period prior to Hirohito's death.
  • This is the first season where past Rangers appear in an episode and not in a movie.
  • In the Philippine dub, four of the Turborangers are renamed Joonee (Daichi), Ian (Yohei), Ronnie (Shunsuke), and Karina (Haruna); Riki, meanwhile, had his name's spelling changed to "Ricky." Their teacher, Misa Yamaguchi, became Miss Bartolome, and Dr. Dazai changed to Dr. Daza. The human forms of the Wandering Boma are also renamed as Jonathan (Hikaru/Yamimaru) and Ana (Sayoko/Kirika).
  • In the French and the Spanish dub, four of the Turborangers retain their original names (although Haruna's name is pronounced with the mute H), while Riki was renamed Chikara (the other reading of his name's kanji).
  • This season starts the tradition of "Sentai stacking attacks," where two Rangers would get on the other three Rangers' shoulders to initiate a team attack.
  • In the Indonesian dub, Turboranger was renamed to Pasukan Turbo (Turbo Forces).
  • This is the last season to have aired in the 1980's, with the following season, Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman, airing fully in the 1990's.
