Sentai (戦隊 lit. "Task Force" or "Squadron") is a sub-genre of tokusatsu involving a team of superheroes. The most famous of these is Super Sentai, which established a majority of its characteristics and is one of the longest surviving examples of the genre.

The most common tropes associated with the genre are a team of multi-colored warriors, mecha, and an enemy faction that can utilize kaiju or giant robots that the heroes must fight using a combined mecha or a team attack.


  • A common misconception many westerners have is that all superhero tokusatsu is essentially "sentai". This is false, as superhero tokusatsu has several sub-genres or integrates other televised media genres into its programs.
