The remaining members of the Cheer Fruits team have their own Hinanectar uniforms despite the fact that they aren't part of the team within the stage shows; they typically wear the costumes when they perform the show's theme song. In Episode 9, the Cheer Fruits' leader Misaki Shirogane appears on stage as a Sixth Ranger-type character named "Platinum" who wears a white dress rather than a uniform. Roko Kuroki and Kanon Shimura play the show's villains, while Genki Aoyama handles the audio and special effects and doesn't play any role within the show itself.

The Amazing World of Gumball


In the episode "The Guy", Gumball and Darwin had a fantasy where they transformed into Sentai superheroes called the "Bro-Squad". The overall look of them is a fusion of the costumes of Bioman and Sun Vulcan with a bird logo similar to the one of Choujin Sentai Jetman emerging from the brace (which resembles a Techno Brace) when transforming and behind them after posing like the Jetmen. They even have a RPG online game under the same name released in the Cartoon Network Games on September 12, 2018. The helmets also resemble Red One and Yellow Four.

In the episode “The Spinoffs”, one of the proposed ideas Rob has for replacing Gumball as the star of the show is a Power Rangers-like show called Techno Power Teenage Warriors. When the main heroes shout “Techno Power Activate!”, a brief modified sound byte of the opening guitar riffs to Go Go Power Rangers can be heard in the background.

A kid dressed as the Blue Ranger.

In the Halloween-themed third episode of American Dad season 6, Best Little Horror House in Langley Falls, a boy is seen dressed as the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Zyuranger's TriceraRanger), although the helmet is more similar to the Red Ranger (TyrannoRanger).

In the episode The Enlightenment of Ragi-Baba, Stan and Steve try sushi. They compliment the chef by comparing his sushi to the Megazord.

The Super Strong Warner Siblings.

Dr. Otto von Scratchansniff as Zordon

A Putty Patrol Parody

A Rita Repulsa and her Minions Parodies

A Bandora Palace Parody

A Command Center Parody

Water Tower as Megazord

The popular kids cartoon show Animaniacs did a spoof of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in an episode called "Super Strong Warner Siblings". The plot involves the three Warner siblings, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, defending the Warner Bros. studio lot from a giant bug created by a Rita Repulsa lookalike (coincidentally voiced by Tress MacNeille with the voice inflections of fellow voice actress Barbara Goodson). They defeat the monster, but end up destroying the Studio lot in the process. The episode ends with a health warning to children about "playing with giant bugs."

Blue Blowfish Yakko Warner
Red Anteater Wakko Warner
Yellow Platypus Dot Warner

In addition, Dr. Scratchansniff parodies Zordon, Rita Repulsa parodies herself, a humanoid pig parodies Goldar (but looks more like Mordant from the first movie), a Scottish coyote parodies both Squatt and Baboo (but vocally sounds similar to Klank), and a green alien parodies Finster. Rita's Warriors - stick figures wearing white jumpsuits and giant glasses - parody the Putty Patrollers. The Warner Bros. water tower parodies the Megazord. However, there is no parody or equivalent for Alpha.

Other parody elements include the Warner Siblings constantly shouting "Right!" at random moments (including the moments in which they would actually say it), Rita protesting that "This never works!" after her monster is defeated (making fun of the show's monster-of-the-week motif she and Zedd use on the show), and an irate Mr. Plotz complaining about how much it's going to cost him to repair the damage to his studio (pointing out MMPR's tendency to ignore the excessive destruction wreaked on Angel Grove in every episode). The episode also utilizes theme music similar to that used in MMPR. In addition, the episode pokes fun at the goody-good morality of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers by having the normally mischievous Warner siblings randomly handing out bags of money.

The irony of this episode is that the 3-member team consisting of Red, Blue, and Yellow Rangers did not happen until Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, which was the first Power Rangers show that aired after Disney (Warner Brothers' main rival) acquired the franchise from Saban. Super Sentai has done this motif even before Power Rangers starting with Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan and Choujuu Sentai Liveman.


Anpanman and his pals.jpeg
Star Twins.jpeg

Anpanman is the long-running series and created by Takashi Yanase by best children's books and TV series in the anime, all museums and movies in Japan alongside with Doraemon, Crayon Shin-chan and Shimajiro series. In Go! Anpanman: Dadandan and the Twin Stars (2009 movie), the Twin Stars are Kirara and Kirarin, but until they got separated and Kirara meets Anpanman and his friends and also has to save her sister, Kirarin from Baikinman and his evil gang to make things right to save the stars and all worlds and Earth from turning into stone. The Anpanman 2009 movie makes it similar to Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger: Ep. 33: Teach Me! The Jewel of Bravery. Sunny and Rainy are the two special gems associated with fairies and sealed inside by Witch Bandora. The Zyuranger helps Sunny to save Rainy from Dora Raiger from making bad and strong rain, also Saori has to save her best friend, Yuko. And also by more characters by the long running series they got some Super Sentai Team characters look alike.

In Animal Crossing New Horizons, one of the costumes you can purchase is the Zap Suit which is strongly based off Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and Kamen Rider (on top of that, several of the villagers wear these said suits as a reference to these series). The suit particularly resembles Zenkaizer from Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger and even comes in the standard Ranger colors (Red, Blue, Green, Black, White, Yellow and Pink).

The Annoying Orange

The Super Stretchy Sour Rangers

Megagourd, the spoof of the Megazord.

The popular Youtube channel, The Annoying Orange, made a spoof of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in four videos featuring the Sour Rangers, a team of sour gummy kids based on the candy Sour Patch Kids. They piloted robotic Gourds in place of Zords, which could combine into Megagourd, who fought with lightning rays and with the mighty Power Knife, a spoof of the Megazord's Power Sword. In their first appearance, they fought Marshmallow's evil cousin, Marshageddon, who was armed with a raygun and wore a headpiece based on that of Rita Repulsa. In their second appearance, they fought Lord Bread, a spoof of Lord Zedd, who was armed with a pretzel staff that fired energy beams. Their third appearance saw them battle evil forces at Comic-Corn (a parody of Comic-Con). Their fourth and most recent appearance saw them in a parody of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, where they battle Chivan Stews (a parody of Ivan Ooze), with the help of new powers granted by Dorcea (parody of Dulcea; voiced by Ciara Hanna, who portrayed Gia Moran in Power Rangers Megaforce). Some main characters in the series took the roles of supporting characters from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; Orange became a parody of Zordon and was called Oron, Midget Apple spoofed Alpha 5 and became Midget Apple 5, and Grapefruit took the role of Ernie, whose juice bar was destroyed by Megagourd in battle.

In a similar case, in [50] of Ask Orange (a video series where Orange responds to fan-submitted questions and comments), Orange, Marshmallow, Midget Apple, Grapefruit, and Pear morph into Rangers, referencing Mighty Morphin, Time Force, Dino Thunder, Megaforce, and Beast Morphers, respectively, with their morph sequences. Orange's Zord is Orange Orangutan, Marshmallow's Zord is Marshmallow Mastadon, Midget Apple's Zord is Apple Alligator, Grapefruit's Zord is Grapefruit Great-White, and Pear's Zord is Pear Pear (despite the other four summoning "awesome, cool, robotic animals", Pear summoned a pear because he is one, and he thought it made sense).

Additionally, in a HOW2 episode, Lord Bread made a cameo.

In the 7th light novel, Hajime had Kouki and his friends distract the Hoelscher Empire in order to rescue the captured members of the Haulia Tribe. He gave each of them a colored mask that resembled the Power Rangers, and assigned each of them a codename based on the color of their mask.

Flighty Fluoride Scour Rangers

The first time was during the episode, "Arthur's Tooth", when the class was learning about teeth by watching an educational video. A team of four heroes called the Flighty Fluoride Scour Rangers (an obvious nod to MMPR) were fighting a monster who was trying to damage a set of teeth from the inside.

The second was in the episode, "Attack of the Turbo Tibbles". This episode had seen a TV show called "Terrific Turbo-Trooper Toy T-Bot Team". The heroes wear uniforms with a MMPR-like theme, though the TV show title resembled Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad and had hand signatures similar to Ultraman.

The first part of the seventeenth episode of Atomic Betty is called Power Arrangers.



Ben as the Blue Ranger.

In the sixth and last episode of the first season of the BBC Three comedy about three immature flatmates, there is a flashback to their schooldays where Ben is dressed as the Blue Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger (Zyuranger's TriceraRanger).

Karakura-Rizer Team.png

Karakura-Raizer Team is a team of superheroes created by Kisuke Urahara to help protect Karakura Town from Hollow attacks.

Additionally in the earlier filler episodes of the anime, a similar superhero team called the Karakura Superheroes were set up by Don Kanonji to help protect Karakura Town as Ichigo and his friends were busy rescuing Rukia Kuchiki from the Soul Society. Much like Super Sentai they were given different colors and would do different traditional poses when introducing themselves. However as both Karin Kurosaki and Jinta Hanakari would constantly fight over who would by Karakura Red, it led to the team disbanding.

Ururu Tsumugiya, Don Kanonji, and Kon are the only characters to have served on both teams (though Kon was not in Ichigo's body during the Karakura Superhero event).

Ichigo Kurosaki's English dub voice is provided by Johnny Yong Bosch, who played Adam Park, while his original Japanese voice is provided by Masakazu Morita, who (ironically) voiced Debo Tanabanta.

In the game, a group of heroes known as the Bug Rangers are acknowledged at various points through the story, either through their merchandise or NPCs who are fans of the team. Much like those who are portrayed in Power Rangers and Super Sentai, the Bug Rangers are explicitely stated in game to be fictional characters who are portrayed by actors. They are primarily known for their plays, but also have a comic book series as well as a toyline. Kabbu is a huge fan of the Bug Rangers, stating that they "inspire young bugs all over the land."

Team Snakemouth bear a striking resemblence to the Bug Rangers, as both teams consist of a bee, beetle and moth with similar coloring. This is acknowledged when a wasp named Jayde mistakes the team for the Bug Rangers during their initial travel to the Wasp Kingdom.

In the Bugaria Theater, a merchant can sell Kabbu a rare plushie of Bug Ranger Green for 40 berries. The toy can be shown to various NPCs or used in certain in game events for unique dialouge. In the Termite Kingdom, Kabbu is able to give the plushie to a young termite outside of the Colosseum.

Cho Ninjatai Inazuma!Icon-crosswiki.png

Cho Ninjatai Inazuma! (超忍者隊イナズマ! Chō Ninja Tai Inazuma!, Super Ninja Force Lightning!) is a 2006 tokusatsu moive made by Toei. It is about a producer in the year 2076 creating the 100th entry in the Hyper Hero Team Series by going back in time and getting three people from the Edo era of Japan to star in the show. It was followed a year later by Cho Ninjatai Inazuma!! SPARKIcon-crosswiki.png. It features many actors from Super Sentai, including Atsushi Hashimoto, Hiroya Matsumoto, Asami Kai, Mika Kikuchi, and Mika Kikuchi.

The Hyper Hero Team Series is an obvious parody of Super Sentai. Additionally, assuming Sentai's schedule remains constant, 2076 will be the year Super Sentail will celebrate its 100th season. Predating Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger, Cho Ninjatai Inazuma! is Toei's first attempt at a parody of their Super Sentai series.

The Lyoko Warriors (Evolution or New Series in YouTube)

A French animated series about a group of children who enter the digital world of Lyoko to protect their virtual friend and also their home from a digital virus know as X.A.N.A. For Season 5, the series was turned from animated series to mix with a live action series with additional heroes and villains. The premise of Code Lyoko is similar to the premise of Engine Sentai Go-Onger/Power Rangers RPM and Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters/Power Rangers Beast Morphers with a genius creating an artificial intelligence to combat an evil governmental organization with the program going rogue and wanting to either conquer the world in the case of X.A.N.A. or conquered the world in the case of Venjix and Evox Virus Army. The outfits used in Season 4 and Season 5 (Code Lyoko Evolution and in YouTube) are also very similar to the suits in Power Rangers and Super Sentai. Additionally, the composer of the English theme song (A World Without Danger), Noam Kaniel, also composes the theme songs from Power Rangers Samurai up to Power Rangers Ninja Steel.

The video "Zordon is a Racist" spoofs the untinentionally politically incorrect connotations of Zack Taylor being African-American and the Black Ranger as well as Trini Kwan being Asian and the Yellow Ranger by depicting Zordon as a complete bigot who is blatantly appointing Ranger colors to his recruits based on what minority they belong to. After kicking out a second black recruit and a Jewish recruit, the remaining recruits call out Zordon on his bigotry and walk away in disgust.

Crystal Story

Promotional artwork of Z and Witch Rita, side by side.

An indie RPG commercially released on February 6th, 2015. The primary antagonist of the game is a witch just named "Witch Rita", who bares a resemblance to Rita Repulsa, more so in her clothing than physical appearance. Moreover, the games true antagonist is her superior, a villain simply named "Z". Z's costume is heavily based off of Lord Zedd's design. Additionally, Z's name could be a reference to the fact that "Zedd" is an alternate pronunciation to the letter "Z".

DC Comics' Blackest Night

Green Lantern and the Deputy Lanterns of the DC Universe

Some of the most popular heroes and villains of the DC Universe, in the arc Blackest Night, were made into deputy lanterns of the six other colors of the lantern powers and fought alongside Green Lantern. Their appearance in the comics as well as their dominance of one entire wave of DC Universe Classics figures have sparked fan comparisons to Power Rangers.

Detroit Metal City

The "Seigi Sentai" in its different adaptations

The vulgar comedy manga Detroit Metal City featured the "Seigi Sentai Victory Three" performing on an amusement park's stage show until Johannes Krauser II, the leader of the eponymous death metal band, appeared. A kid among the audience mistook Krauser for a kaijin and began attacking him. Victory Red, actually one of DMC's most hardcore fans working to earn for concert tickets, joined his idol in the harassment.

A three-man team like Sun Vulcan, the costumes of the "Seigi Sentai" bears resemblance to those from Gorenger.

Dexter's Laboratory

The Megabot 1000.

In Dexter's Laboratory, the Super Sentai and the Power Rangers shows are parodied in different episodes. In "Big Sister" and "Last But Not Beast", both episodes have giant monster battles that parody the ones in Super Sentai and Power Rangers. Also in "Big Sister", there is a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers poster in Dexter's bedroom. Also in "Last But Not Beast", Dexter has a poster of a Super Sentai/Power Rangers like team in his bedroom. He has two robots, Robo-Dexo 2000 and Multi-Forming Megabot (which has a finisher, as well as 4 pieces to form the robot: a helicopter, jet, van, and boat). Both are parodies of Super Sentai Robos and Power Rangers Megazords. Also, in "Last But Not Beast" the song "Dexter's Family Go" also parodies Go Go Power Rangers. In the episode "Sister Mom", just before Dexter activates the machine he uses to turn DeeDee into their mother, he says "It's Morphin Time!".


Original Universe

In the English dub of the 39th episode of the second season of Digimon, known as Digimon Adventure 02, a news reporter mentions a Power Rangers Arbor Day Special. Later, in the Japanese dub of that same season, in episode 42, one character refers to herself and her group as a "Digimon Sentai" and "DigiRangers".

Digimon: The Movie

In the English dub, Kari says she got her friend a Pink Ranger Action Figure for her birthday.

Dinosaur King

In the episode, A Game Show Showdown, there is a show set called Dino Troopers. It was a play on either Power Rangers or Super Sentai (the Japanese show Power Rangers is based on). A lone ninja-themed hero is later seen facing the same villain as the Dino Troopers during a live stage show in Ninja Nightmare!. Dinosaurs and ninjas are two of the most commonly recurring team motifs in both Sentai and Rangers, and stage shows that reuse any suits available are also a common staple of the genre.


  • The Prism Rangers are a direct homage to Super Sentai, have a team cannon, and can perform the Prism Hurricane, an attack that is a reference to the Goren Hurricane.
  • Disgaea Dimension 2 features several references to AkibaRanger.
    • A team attack is in reference to their finisher, and a weapon is a direct reference to the Dairen Bomber.
  • Piyori from Disgaea 6 is a reference to Red Senshi and features attacks based off of Super Sentai.

UFO Rangers

In one chapter of the long running manga series, Nobita and Doraemon watch TV and an image of a Sentai show called "UFO Rangers" appears on the screen before they decide to go outside and play. The UFO Rangers bear an uncanny resemblance to J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai, which coincidentally was still on the air at the time this particular story came out on August 10th, 1976.


In the opening panel of one manga chapter, Doraemon witnesses a film crew shooting what seems to be a Gorenger movie.

Coincidentally, it aired on the same network as Super Sentai and two of the characters (Suneo and Gian) were voiced by the same VAs as the devices of Gokaiger and Kyuranger.

Another sentai team is called Sokuryo Sentai Kirameasure which is similar to the name Kiramagers.

Downtown no Gottsu Ee Kanji

Seikimatsu Sentai Gorenjai.jpg

In this show, there was a recurring sketch named Seikimatsu Sentai Gorenjai. Translating to English as End of Century Heroes Five Range-i, it is a parody of Himitsu Sentai Gorenger -- the last syllable in renjaa ("ranger") is replaced to avoid copyright issues. Each episode begins with the evil Dokuro Kamen ("Skull Mask", played by Hamada) often stopping for a friendly chat with the lady's friend before attacking the lady (played by You) in her home. The sentai heroes, the five renjai, then burst into the scene one at a time to save her and attempt to fight Dokuro Kamen, who is too distracted and unable to fight due to their appearances.

In the first episode, they have three red renjai and two yellow (breaking the usual sentai convention of having each hero in a different color). Dokuro Kamen lectures them and tells them to try better next time. Each subsequent episode has Dokuro Kamen attacking the same woman in the same room (often stopping for a friendly chat with the lady's friend before he attacks her), and the renjai appearing in mismatched costumes -- such as Tiger Mask, Falkor, and a waitress from a No-pan Shabu shabu-- or ridiculously modified versions of their uniforms. The episodes end with Dokuro Kamen scolding the renjai, pointing out exactly what is wrong, and sending them off home.

Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball Z

Ginyu Force pose!

The Ginyu Force (Ginyu Tokusentai/Special Squad) that serve as the henchman for their villain Frieza in the anime and manga series Dragon Ball Z often do Super Sentai based poses when they introduce themselves. They also have have different colors based on their skin. Notably when Captain Ginyu later faced Goku, not only did Goku imitate the pose, he also made a note that doing the pose was a big waste of time that angered Ginyu as a result. Turns out in the fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ that Ginyu Force’s posing is the main reason why Gohan become the superhero Great Saiyaman. In the video game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, which uncover the untold stories that are not in either manga nor anime, the Ginyu Force use to have had a sixth ranger, who is a female.

Cooler's Armored Squadron

Cooler's Armored Squadron (クウラ機甲戦隊 'Kūra Kikō Sentai') is a mercenary platoon that works under Cooler, the brother of Frieza through the Frieza Force. The team is made up of Salza the "pretty-boy" captain of the squad, a large green fighter named Dore, and a tall amphibian-like soldier named Neiz. They make their debut in the film Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge as the secondary antagonists.

Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super, the official sequel to Dragon Ball Z, introduced not one, but two groups in the Universal Survival Arc. The first group is the Pride Troopers of Universe 11, who act like parodies of Super Sentai heroes. While they do not have special colored costumes, they are quite fond of posing and fighting for justice. Their leader, Toppo, is heavily into this, chewing out Android #17 for attacking opponents while transforming.

The second group are the Kamikaze Fireballs of Universe 2, who are parodies of magical girls (and most likely Pretty Cure in particular). They are a three-woman team who fights for love and justice and hold the same love for posing.


Dragonman (ドラゴンマン Defense Force DragonMan) is a set of 'local heroes' loosely based on the Super Sentai and the Power Rangers series. As local heroes, they engage in advocacies and perform live.

Dynasty Warriors

In Dynasty Warriors 8, there are DLCs for Shu Dynasty characters which was inspired from Power Rangers/Super Sentai.

Liu Bei gets a Ranger commander-type costume. Furthermore, Zhuge Liang and Yue Ying get villain costumes with color schemes very similar to Rita Repulsa from the Power Rangers 2017 movie. Lastly, Wei Yan got a monster-like costume.

In the episode "Fists of Furry", Sharky the Sharkdog is seen watching a parody of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, called Mighty Boring Shower Strangers. The aptly named Shower Strangers are a bunch of people wearing helmets and towels meeting, but not recognizing each other in a shower, after which they are attacked by soap themed monsters.

Also parodied in this episode is the controversy that Power Rangers would promote the use of violence in children, as Sharky is seen hurting himself after imitating the moves he saw in the show.

Felix The Cat

In a commercial Bumper for Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat Felix encountered 3 mice dressed up in Super Sentai/Power Ranger like costumes where the mice did Martial Arts style moves and as Felix laughed the 3 mice transformed into dinosaurs and began to chase Felix.

The 3 mice possessed the 3 common ranger colors used in Super Sentai/Power Rangers Red/Blue/Yellow and the design of the mice's costumes seem to draw similarities to the ones from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Final Fantasy XV

Magitek Exosuits (Original Design)

One of the plans for the DLC expansions of the game Final Fantasy XV was the Magitek Exosuit, multi-colored Sentai-like armors that would enhance the four different characters of the game. This suit gives the player invincibility for 30 minutes and improves fishing, but can only be used once every 24 hours.

However, their original design was too similar to the costumes of the 2017 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie and Saban threatened to sue Square Enix if they did not change it. This resulted in the Magitek Exosuit DLC being delayed until the suits could be re-designed. Fans reacted negatively to Saban's copyright claim as it ruined a pre-determined DLC release that players were waiting for.[1].

France Five

France Five official picture.

Shin Kenjushi France Five (translated as New Sword Musketeers France Five), is a French affectionate parody of the Sentai genre. Its heroes have names which are major clichés about French life, especially food. It became extremely popular in Japan and Akira Kushida even sang a new theme song for it that was used in the show's last three episode.

Because producers where unsure how far the project could go, first episode was written as a typical mid-season episode (actually, first sixth ranger appearance) rather than a real introduction. However, after a 8-years hiatus, it ended with a real final. Color pattern, including sixth ranger, is exactly the same as Denji Sentai Megaranger/Power Rangers in Space.

Grand Theft Auto V

Kung Fu Rainbow Lazerforce


GTA 5 - Home entertainment - Weazel (TV Show)

The Kung Fu Rainbow Lazerforce is a TV show that is within the game Grand Theft Auto V in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. It is a parody of both the Super Sentai and the Power Rangers and is aired on its TV network Weazel, which is a parody of Fox, the network that first aired the Power Rangers from 1993 through 2002 on its Fox Kids block. Its title parodies Power Rangers Megaforce with a theme of conservative "family values", such as sex after marriage, unflinching belief in God and homophobia.

Genki Bakuhatsu Ganbaruger

The Ganbar Team

Ganbaruger is a 1992 mecha series animated by Sunrise and is the second entry of the Eldran Series, a short lived franchise to promote Tomy toys that competed against the more popular Brave Series of mecha shows/toyline by Takara which was also animated by Sunrise. The difference was that the Brave series mostly used vehicle mechs while Eldran's were animal themed, both motifs a staple of Super Sentai mechas at the time of this series airing.

The show features a trio of young kid superheroes called the Ganbar Team who must battle evil demons who want to rule the Earth. They do so by calling upon three animal mechs, (an eagle, an elephant and a tiger) and then transform into their superhero identities using special braces that call upon their Ganbare Suits.

The mechas in the show can change into a humanoid combat mode (making the anime precede Dairanger on this concept) or combine into the titular Ganbaruger. Despite the Sun Vulcan-esque line up of Red, Blue and Yellow, Ganbar Yellow is the leader of the team and main pilot of Ganbaruger instead of the traditional Red.

In an unusual coincidence, the main ninja mentors of both The Ganbar Team and the Hurricanger/Ninja Storm Rangers are transformed into talking animals (a dog and a hamster/guinea pig) and are stuck in that form until the final episode.

Ghost in the Shell

A tribute anthology manga of Ghost in the Shell created in 2017 placed the characters in situations and scenarios that are out of the ordinary fare for the Ghost in the Shell universe. One story made by Tony Takezaki placed the Section 9 team in a tokusatsu show universe where Motoko Kusanagi was the Red Ranger of a Sentai team. Designwise, their suits resemble a hybrid of Bioman, Sun Vulcan and Battle Fever J.

The style of some of the manga pages of this story refects those of real world Japanese kids promotional magazines such as TV-Kun, as its displays the weapons of the team, thier mechas and certain panels showcase some of thier Ranger powers such as Mokoto's invisibility.

In addition to being an official assassin organization, the Handsome Men are also featured as characters in a comic book created by Trevor Pearlharbor and published by ZTT Comics. When the real-world group appears and begins to carry out the stories he writes in reality, Pearlharbor believes himself to be controlling them; in actuality, he is only a seer, and his comics are simply predictions of what they will do. LOVE Wilcox, a teenage girl and participant in the underground Internet, may be the actual coordinator of the Handsome Men's actions.

A television news announcement reports that a group resembling the comic book characters has assassinated Democratic Party member Steve Thunderson during a meeting of Congress. As a result, Mills dispatches the Killer 7 to kill Pearlharbor, who is writing their adventures into his comics in the week preceding their actual actions, and therefore appears to be controlling them, or at least some sort of terrorist. The Killer 7 tracks Pearlharbor to his studio in the Dominican Republic, where he is in the midst of drawing a scene of himself killing Dan Smith, and thus believes he cannot die. However, Handsome Black suddenly appears and fires his Handsome Wink at Dan, who successfully dodges; the attack hits Pearlharbor, killing him.

Dan kills Handsome Black in retaliation; Handsome Red appears on the scene and, surveying it, concludes that Dan killed both Pearlharbor and Black unprovoked. He calls for a revenge match to determine which of the groups is stronger, naming Broadway, New York as the site of the challenge. A series of one-on-one matches ensues:

  • Harman Smith kills Handsome Red with his rifle.
  • Handsome White Pearl outshoots Con Smith.
  • Coyote Smith shoots and kills Handsome Gold.
  • Handsome Light Brown shoots KAEDE Smith as she reloads.

  • As Garcian Smith is about to fight Handsome Pink, however, she suddenly transforms into the shape of LOVE Wilcox, and the two call a truce. She tells him that she "wrote the story," and seems to believe that the company she works for, Electro Inline Inc., was responsible for her mentor Pearlharbor's death.
