In Power Rangers, the question always comes down to “who’s the strongest?” Whether it’s Tommy, a Red Ranger, or the designated Captain, the answer is always “whoever’s leading is strongest.”
In Super Sentai, even additional Rangers meet their team’s base level once they join.
American comic book heroes have their own powers intact & most often wear a costume as a bonus.
In Super Sentai, their powers & costumes are granted via a transformation device. 9.5/10 times, Rangers as civilians only have unpowered martial arts to fend off villains.
American-style superheroes are known for being able to handle their own problems w/o necessarily needing any other heroes. Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, & Spider-Man don’t *need* sidekicks, or a team, or the Justice League/the Avengers to defeat their latest threats.
More often than not, each Ranger’s mecha serves a clear purpose: a frog might be legs. It can only be legs in the greater formation of the larger “Megazord.” And yet, the Megazord can’t function at its full potential without that component. It takes all kinds; it takes everyone.
