|This article is about a/an team from the Super Sentai as seen in Kamen Rider.|
The Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (侍戦隊シンケンジャー Samurai Sentai Shinkenjā?), commonly known as just the Shinkengers (シンケンジャー Shinkenjā?) are six young men and women who use a special kanji-based power called Mojikara (モヂカラ Mojikara?) to combat the evil Gedoushu as superpowered samurai. They consist of the Shiba Household lord Shinken Red, Takeru Shiba, and his vassals: Shinken Blue, Ryunosuke Ikenami; Shinken Pink, Mako Shiraishi; Shinken Green, Chiaki Tani; Shinken Yellow, Kotoha Hanaori; and Shinken Gold, Genta Umemori. They are accompanied by the Shiba Household's retainer Hikoma Kusakabe and many kuroko.
They are also the 33rd Super Sentai team. They were the first Super Sentai team to be encountered by Kamen Rider Decade, when the Hikari Studio arrived in the "World of Shinkenger", their home. (Shinkenger Act 20 and Act 21) A later incident showed that the Shinkengers were one of many Sentai teams.

Super Hero TaisenEdit
The Shinkengers, along with the rest of the Super Sentai teams and the majority of the Sentai heroes, were caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Shinkengers are the protagonists of the 33rd entry in the Super Sentai series, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, and thus the 33rd official Super Sentai team. Samurai Sentai Shinkenger premiered in February 2009, joining Kamen Rider Decade and later Kamen Rider W from September of that year, in TV Asahi's Super Hero Time programming block.
