Yes, Tamers was dubbed by Saban. You know, if Saban had done Frontier, I can imagine the kids saying "It's Morphin Time!" before they digivolve (since the kids became the Digimon instead of having partners in that season)!
DawnZ, that's not what I meant. Kamen Rider predates Sentai, and Dragon Knight doesn't explicitly mention Sentai or Power Rangers to my knowledge.
Lonewolf, yes this thread has been done before, but I think it was long enough ago that bumping it = locked. And I know my Megaman example wasn't mentioned in it.
The Axem Rangers are called カジオー戦隊オノレンジャー (Kajiō Sentai Onorenjā) in Japan. It means Smith King Sentai Axe Rangers.

How did I forget about the Super Strong Warner Siblings?
Cool I am gonna start megaman battle network and super mario rpg on my psp now that I know
The 'Damien' episode of of South Park way back in season 1 I think. Cartman asks the other boys to get him multicolored 'megaman' toys for his birthday. As I recall the helmits of the toys looked like Sentai and the toys reminded me of Zords.
If Wikipedia is to be believed the episode Damien was suppose to actually directly refer to Power Rangers with the toys Cartmen wanted but Comedy Central asked Stone and Parker to change the names for copyright issues

Reason: Direct quoting
Pssh, they went one step further than that. They referenced Power Rangers in the Digimon Movie which was in theaters all over the damn nation. Skip to 6:40 to see the part I'm talking about.

And thanks for the video with the Animaniacs parody. Watching made me remember i had seen the episode on my childhood XD By the way, whoever did the parody was smart enough to notice that the three main colors of a ranger team are red/blue/yellow (since they were present on every single season) hehe
Well, another one i could take as a Sentai (and by default, PR) was the Steel Saints on the Saint Seiya/Knights of the Zodiac anime. They had the same core colors that sentai uses PLUS they are a three man team where red represents sky with a bird as motif, Blue represents sea with some sort of fish as motif and Yellow represents land with some sort of quadrupedal animal as motif. Since Toei produced the anime we could take it as a direct reference to the Sun Vulcan series, which followed the same patern. And just remembering that said characters are anime exclusive and don't exist in the manga
This one isn't exactly a reference but it turns out to be a pretty big coincidence: in the recent Pokemon anime series, Ash has a rival named Trip. Until there, not a big deal, but the interesting thing is that the character's outfit really looks like the one PR's Trip uses. They even had green as the main colour XD I've did a list of coincidences between both Trips on another board. I can give the link to it, if you'd like too.
Also, the games has a gym leader that happened to be named... Skyla, the same name of Shane's girlfriend.
As i said, it's most likely coincidences hehe

I think the Trip thing was already mentioned in the Pokemon thread.
Maybe Comedy Central was more worried about Saban and possibly Toei than Capcom, and then the toys look and sound nothing like Megaman. I can kind of see Toei being sue happy. According to the tv.com the helmets of the toys resembled Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman. The episode is probably on the southparkstudios UK website. All the old episodes are streamed on there and you would probably make a good expert on that.
