Tokusatsu (特撮; sometimes shortened to toku in English) is a genre of live action Japanese tv shows and movies that usually feature superheroes, big rubber monsters, and/or mecha.

Godzilla and Super Sentai (the franchise whose action sequences have been repurposed for Power Rangers)) are probably the two examples most widely known in the West. Other well-known tokusatsu franchises include Kamen Rider (a sister franchise to Super Sentai), GARO, Space Sheriff Gavan, and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, a tokusatsu spin-off of Sailor Moon.
