|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.
- Only early-bird cameo to have an in-universe explanation (Ep. 40: The Future is the Past).
- First early-bird cameo where the new team not only defeats, but also finishes off their opponent.
- 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 their two preceeding 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 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.
- 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.
