Notes

  • 怪盗 (Kaitou) is the Japanese word for "phantom thief" or "gentlemen thief".
  • 警察 (Keisatsu) is the Japanese word for "police", "police department" or "police force".
  • Patranger is the second police themed sentai team, after Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger.
  • Lupinranger is the first non-Anniversary treasure hunting themed sentai team, unlike two other known treasure hunting themed teams GoGo Sentai Boukenger (adventurers) and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger (pirates).
  • Lupinranger's name contains a reference to Arsène Lupin, a fictional gentleman thief and master of disguise created by French writer Maurice Leblanc, and also to Arsène Lupin III, a fictional character created by Monkey Punch and the protagonist of Lupin the Third manga series.
  • This is the first season since Samurai Sentai Shinkenger to not have a pre-series cameo.
  • This is the first season since Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger to no feature a mecha battle in the first episode.
  • Just like the premiere episode of Samurai Sentai ShinkengerTokumei Sentai Go-Busters, and Shuriken Sentai Ninninger, the opening is omitted and it had the theme song being played in the Lupinrangers' first fight scene instead.
  • Continuing the trend started by Kyoryuger/Gekiranger, this series shares many similarities with Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters:
    • In both, the opening is omitted and it had the theme song being played in the Rangers' first fight scene instead.
    • The heroes are special mission-themed.
    • Most of the heroes are started with three Rangers on Core teams.
    • The villains are the thieves of the useful resources (Gangler and Vaglass)
    • Both have useful items to be used for good (Lupin Collection and Enetron)
    • The Lupinrangers can speak in French language dialect just like Enter.
    • Both feature Gold and Silver Male Ranger duo (LupinX/PatrenX and Beet Buster/Stag Buster)
    • Both use standard roll calls.
    • Both had the three piece mecha (LupinKaiser/PatKaiser and Go-Buster Oh) in five years after the animal themed Rangers (Kyoryuzin and GekiTohja).
    • Both have female Yellows. Excluding ToQger, Seasons had no Yellow or a Male Yellow instead.
    • Both bring concepts from Power Rangers to Super Sentai.
      • The main villians of Go-Busters had similaities to Omni and Venjix from SPD and RPM respectively.
      • The never used Hexagon Plan roughly has the same plot as Lupinranger vs Patranger (minus the respective motifs and villian mechanic).
    • Both teams have a dress style similar to the Gorengers than modern teams.
  • The first Sentai Series to not have the Ending Theme, or just replaced by Closing Screens.
  • This series will be the final Sentai series to have a full televised run in the Heisei Era; the following series will be in a similar position to Choujuu Sentai Liveman in that it will run during the transition of reigning emperors. Emperor Akihito will abdicate the throne in April 30, 2019[11] to his son Prince Naruhito, thus beginning a new era of Japan.
  • First sentai series to start with six rangers. Three in each core team.
  • First sentai series where different rangers wear the completely same color as Mirai Sentai Timeranger, Mahou Sentai Magiranger, and Uchu Sentai Kyuranger that includes two main red rangers heroes (LupinRed/Patren 1gou, TimeRed/TimeFire, Magi Red/Wolzard Fire and Shishi Red/Houou Soldier), despite having different suit designs, unlike Ninpu Sentai Hurricanger (Kabuto Raiger’s suit color is much different than Hurricane Red) and Shuriken Sentai Ninninger (not only has four AkaNingers, three other AkaNingers are simply additional minor rangers and has the same suit designs as the main AkaNinger (except the shuriken body patterns on the suit)).
  • The series is also themed after the yin and yang (Lupinrangers taking back the Lupin Collection while the Patrarangers retrieving the collection).
  • Each team's name are based on what sentai they are:
    • Lupanranger's KAITOU: KAIri, TOoma, Umika
    • Patrenger's KEISATSU: KEIichiro, SAkuya, TSUkasa
