This is a STYLE GUIDE page- part of a series of supplements to assist you in your editing of the wiki. The STYLE GUIDE is currently in construction. Please be patient.

This section lists all the official romanizations of names given in Sentai. Only official romanized names are listed, and each are referenced. If one core ranger is referenced, the rest need not be. Unless stated, if a spelling is confirmed on the show, in print (magazine scans, toy packaging), or on an official website (i.e. Toei's, Bandai's) then that's the spelling we use on this wiki.

Ranger Designations

This wiki previously utilized CamelCase for all ranger names. However in an effort to be more accurate with Japanese media, official Romanizations will be used, as each ranger team as different naming conventions. For example: Gekiranger uses one-word spellings (which the wiki will continue to CamelCase), while Gokaiger uses two-word spellings.

  • Tsu Shogun - Tsu is also part of the name of his civilian alter ego, as well as a pun of two and pain. For this reason, it's left untranslated. Considering that there's been a Megazord called Shogun, there's no reason to translate that either, it's a word that is clearly understood in English.

Special cases

Gekiranger

While we have evidence to support the CamelCasing of their Ranger forms, the Gekirangers' Civilian names have not had the same support. Jan Kandou and Retsu Fukami had their first names romanized as "Jyan" and "Retu" in Juken Sentai Gekiranger: Nei-Nei! Hou-Hou! Hong Kong Decisive Battle where Mele's name appeared as "Mere" as well. Unlike most other seasons that have romanizations on footage, we're choosing to ignore these in favor of the more widely used romanizations that appear on this wiki. We have chosen to do this due to the fact that these romanizations do not show up in any other merchandise related to the show or anywhere outside of a short scene in the movie, where it could have likely been a mistake.

The Kensei in Gekiranger are all mostly named after famous martial artists, so while we do not have official romanizations for them, we can approximate the likely intention behind their names.

While Sha-Fu's name is not based on a famous martial artist, we've decided to use the more common "Sha-Fu" than "Xia Fu" even though that romanization is perfectly fine and appropriate for this season.
