IC: Sentai With A Little Something Extra
Love me some Power Rangers/Super Sentai. Nearly 30 years old and I've been watching since I was a wee tyke. As you get older, taste change and get into other things.

With that said, I wanna take Super Sentai and some other elements to it to take it to a different level. I have two ideas.

First, we take the "good" elements of *in the announcer's voice* Dragonball Z, combined with those fun and familiar tropes of Super Sentai and we get Budō Sentai Housekiranger. Set in the far-flung future of 26th century, the universe is at peace until a sleeping evil awakens but Ranger Corp is ready to defend it! Seeking out exceptional fighters to empower with gems that increase their chosen master's power several times over.

Take the over the top action and fighting of DBZ, mix that with storyline and characters of Super Sentai and that's what you get. I feel the two go really well to together. Minus the Super part which is actually the Zords. When you can blow up a planet with little effort, you really don't need giant robots.

The other is Bioboost Sentai Guyverranger. taking place after X-Day, *spoilers* the bad guys won for a bit and actually took over the world, the Arc returns with but instead of Sho returning several young individuals return with the power of a Guyver.

Considering that Guyver is seriously just a few steps away from a mature Sentai, I feel that it's a perfect fit.

*suppresses tons of giggles*

I'd buy this. What system do you intend to use? I'd suggest (throwing out all seriousness and) using RISUS - it seems almost custom-made for this.

Also, if blowing up planets is easy, perhaps the zords blow up suns? Or galaxies?

Did I seriously...

I did. I'm going to use a free system, called Tokyo Heroes.

Ah, eventually, the player's character will be able to do such things in true DBZ fashion.
