|This article is about a/an set of movies with recurring plot points in the Super Sentai series.|
Ever since Samurai Sentai Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger: GinmakuBang!!, the Sentai team of an upcoming new series has made their first appearance in the team-up movie of their two predecessors.
- First early-bird cameo where the new team not only defeats, but also finishes off their opponent.
- Only early-bird cameo to have an in-universe explanation (Ep. 40: The Future is the Past).
- First early-bird cameo to take place in the middle of the movie rather than towards the end.
- First early-bird cameo by an initial team of three rather than five.
- First early-bird cameo to feature another character from the new sentai series (Cheeda Nick), though he only appears in bike form and has no lines.
- First early-bird cameo to not take place in a quarry.
- Only early-bird cameo not to take place in the team-up of the two preceding Sentai, but instead a team-up between two different hero series, as the Gokaiger and Goseiger team-up aired in summer as the 35th anniversary movie, while the Gokaigers' first Vs. movie is a team-up with Space Sheriff Gavan.
- Unlike other Sentai debuts, Daigo appears only by himself first, while the others appear later.
- First early-bird cameo where a member of the guest team (Daigo, during his solo appearance) meets members of the starring team-up (Daigo's predecessors Captain Marvelous and Hiromu Sakurada).
- Second early-bird cameo to feature another character from the new sentai series and first to feature a mecha (Zyudenryu Gabutyra).
- First early-bird cameo where the main battle takes place in a warehouse rather than outside.
- First early-bird cameo to take place as a post-credits scene.
- First early-bird cameo with an "implied" transformation.
- Second early-bird cameo to feature a mecha from the new sentai series and first to feature all of the team member's individual mechs (Red Ressha, Blue Ressha, Yellow Ressha, Green Ressha, and Pink Ressha).
- First early-bird cameo where the new Sentai team does not mention the previous two Sentai teams, as their battle against Space War God Burodosu had already ended by this point.
to be added
- Interestingly, the enemies fought in the first two early-bird cameos were Gedoushu (Shinkenger) while the next two were villains from Gokaiger (Basco ta Jolokia/Zangyack); likewise, the fourth and fifth were both associated with villains from that very movie (Waredonaiyer/Neo-Geildon). The Gokaigers did not fight any Goseiger villains in Goseiger vs. Shinkenger nor did the Kyoryugers fight Vaglass in Go-Busters vs. Gokaiger.
- Gai Ikari also made a movie cameo appearance before his official debut, appearing briefly before the end credits of Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, which was set immediately before his first episode.
