Super Sentai World (スーパー戦隊 ワールド Sūpā Sentai Wārudo) is a short 3-D film based on the Super Sentai franchise that was shown in 1994 in amusement parks and special events nationwide in Japan. It was shown as a triple feature alongside Kamen Rider World and Toei Hero Daishugō (a crossover of Metal Heroes Tokusou Robo Janperson and Blue SWAT, which also used footage from this short).
The film involves the team-up of five different Super Sentai teams (Ninja Sentai Kakuranger, Gosei Sentai Dairanger, Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, Chōjin Sentai Jetman and Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman), who must defend the planet Earth from the evil demon Emperor Daidas. In addition to the five Sentai teams, the film also features Shiro Izumi, who played Yūma Ōzora in Dengeki Sentai Changeman and Burai in Zyuranger, as Masato, a young man who witnesses the Emperor's weak point with his sister Ayumi. Masato and Ayumi also appear in Kamen Rider World, linking the two movies. The narration was provided by Hironori Miyata, the narrator from Dairanger.
The film was featured on the DVD release Super Sentai The Movie Vol. 4, it did not retain the 3D effect from the original theatrical release. The short was a precursor to the 1996 video release Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: Ole vs. Kakuranger, which involved the Kakuranger teaming up with the succeeding Sentai team from Chōriki Sentai Ohranger, which started the Super Sentai V-Cinema Series. It was included in the Super Sentai The Movie Blu-Ray box set with Toei Hero Daishugō. Both shorts are in 3D for this release (Kamen Rider World is in 3D HD on the Kamen Rider The Movie Blu-Ray box set, along with Kamen Rider: Run All Over the World).
Continuity and Placement
- Ninja Sentai Kakuranger: This short film premiered inbetween the broadcasts of episodes 25 and 26; however it would fit easily any time prior to 23 due to the long arc that occurs starting from that arc which leads to the obtaining of all three of the Three God Generals.
- Past Sentai: The crossover between the five teams is difficult to reconcile within the continuity of the original shows due to the endings of each series: the Hoshikawa siblings from Fiveman left Earth to reunite with their parents on Planet P16, Gai Yuuki (Black Condor from Jetman) apparently died (confirmed in the Jetman tribute episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger) after he was stabbed by a mugger , the Zyuranger team ascended into the heavens after defeating Dai Satan, and the Dairanger team lost their powers after defeating the Gohma Tribe (which were later inherited by their grandchildren 50 years later). This would prove to be far from the only time various Sentai would unite to fight evil (the Legend War of Gokaiger, Super Hero Taisen, etc.).
The film features 25 heroes from the aforementioned Sentai teams. None of them appear out of costumes and only some of them are voiced by their original actors (namely all five members of Kakuranger, RyuuRanger and TenmaRanger from Dairanger, and TyrannoRanger from Zyuranger). Only the initial members of each team appear in the film (thus DragonRanger from Zyuranger and KibaRanger from Dairanger are absent as a result).

- Super Sentai World has the fourth largest amount of rangers gathered together. The largest amount was in the opening of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger in which almost every Sentai Ranger in existence appeared, the second largest was the special episode of Turboranger with 53, and the third largest appearing in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai with 33, with 25 of them being red rangers. Ironically, 16 of the Reds in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai appeared in 2 other specials; the Turboranger special featuring 11 (Battle Japan to Red Turbo), 5 in Super Sentai World (FiveRed to NinjaRed) and the 16 in Gokaiger.
- The Flaming Shogun Sword seen in this special is a cheap imitation of the regular prop.
- During the battle, the Dairanger transformation/roll call music is heard during the battle.
- Coincidentally alongside Shiro Izumi, the voice of fellow Zyuranger cast member Yūta Mochizuki would appear in both this and Kamen Rider World; Mochizuki in that short would be the voice for Kamen Rider J.
- The sword Saigan was also used as the Sword of Power in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Season 2.
- Super Sentai: The Movie Volume 4 features Gosei Sentai Dairanger: The Movie, Ninja Sentai Kakuranger: The Movie, Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: The Movie, Super Sentai World and Toei Hero Daishugō .
- A bonus disc containing both Super Sentai World and Toei Hero Daishugō is included in the Super Sentai: The Movie Blu-ray Box 1976-1995 set.
- ↑ Although, this occurs in the epilogue three years after the final battle with Radiguet. It is possible that the events of this movie occur during the three-year interval, as Kakuranger began only two years after the finale of Jetman.
