Why I Think Both Shinkenger and ToQGer Both Had Super Sentai/Kamen Rider Crossovers

I want to write my OPINION and critique on why I think both Shinkenger and ToQGer both had Super Sentai/Kamen Rider crossovers and most seasons didn't.

For the failed Saban's Mashed Rider/MMPR crossover... it was possible to do because Saban intended the Black RX failed adaptation and localization to be part of the MMPR universe.  In fact, rumors even had it that Mashed Rider's finale was supposed to meet with the Power Rangers than ten senior Masked Riders (citation needed). Super Sentai and Kamen Rider were treated as two different continuities, heck even Super Sentai tends to be very self-contained for some time... and most crossovers are blatantly non-canon (ex. Ohranger vs. Kakuranger) over the less obvious ones (like Gekiranger vs. Boukenger, Shinkenger vs. Go-onger). Plots from Super Sentai and Kamen Rider tend to be more or less, pretty different and modus operandi of Heisei KR villains is much different than the convoluted but deadly schemes of Showa KR villains.

Now I'll write my critique on the matter:

On the side of Decade:

Kamen Rider Decade was basically travelling into different worlds. Prior to Shinkenger's world, Decade had traveled to the Alternate Reality Words of Kuuga, Kiva, Ryuki, Blade, Faiz, Agito, Den-O, Kabuto and Hibiki.  So it wasn't really not just random (even for a trashy show like Decade which both that show and Saban's Mashed Rider are just as horrid). It would be highly possible what if Decade traveled into a world without Kamen Riders... and Super Sentai IS a world without Kamen Riders. The timing for a Super Sentai/Kamen Rider crossover could have not been better than the arrival of Kamen Rider Decade.

On the side of ToQGer:

In the case of ToQGer and Gaim, well the ToQGers were stopping by stations weren't they?  Now let's think... Shinkenger took place in 2009 and ToQGer takes place in 2014. Again in between, the non-canon Super Hero Taisen movies were happening which the first one was horrible, HORRIBLE and trash-worthy to the core! Well Narutaki did appear during the movie. If the ToQGers traveled across different stations, if Gaim had access to other dimensions then certainly... both series can also meet can they?

Just my thoughts!


  1. Talking about Super Sentai/Kamen Rider Crossovers.
    The Shinkengers/ Decade crossover was brilliant. As much low comments that most fans had toward the series, I enjoyed Decade as it had that unique gimmick that helped usher the 10 year anniversary and I was so pissed at the limited 36 episode run which did not resolve anything not even the final movie.

    The Shinkenger/Decade crossover worked as the two party had excellent character interactions and the purpose of why they are pitted to join forces.

    I haven't seen ToQgers/ Gaim nor I am even interested into it.
    But during the Shows vs. Hesei movie. Both the ToQgers and Kyoryured did their jobs as allies.

    What was missing are more Rider aluminis from the Showa era but still it was one of the better movies to come out!

  2. ToQGer is 2014 and Kyoryuger is 2013 dude.The ToQGer-Gaim is the best than Shinkenger-Decade.
