Denji Sentai Megaranger (電磁戦隊メガレンジャー Denji Sentai Megarenjā?, translated into English as Electromagnetic Squadron Megaranger) was Toei Company Limited's 21st production of the Super Sentai television series whose motif was cyberspace and digital technology, both of which were considered revolutionary concepts during its premier. The footage was used in the American series, Power Rangers in Space.
Kenta Date, a young high school student, is the champion of an arcade video-game known as "Megaranger". Due to his skills and abilities, the I.N.E.T. company brings him in to use his skills and abilities in a top-secret project tied to the Megaranger game. At the same moment as he his brought in, four other students of the "Digital Research Club" at Moroboshi High School (the same high school Kenta was attending) likewise appear at the company, investigating the mysterious research being done by the scientists at the facility. However, as the five are within the facility, a pre-emptive attack begins from the evil Nezirejia, an evil dimensional force lead by Dr. Hinelar under Electro-King Javious I with plans of conquering this reality.
Dr. Kubota, INET chief, then reveals the truth to Kenta and friends: Megaranger was not a video-game, but actually a combat simulator that had been designed to find the recruits with the potential to become a super fighting team to strike against the Nezireija. As the twisted invaders destroy the base, Kubota gives Kenta and his friends special devices known as Digitizers. By entering the key-code 335 and shouting "Install, Megaranger!", Kenta, Kouichirou, Shun, Chisato and Miku, become the fighting team known as Denji Sentai Megaranger with the ability to fight back against Nezireiga.

- Coincidentally, this is the only Super Sentai series that shares a similarity with its Power Rangers season (In Space), where the leads are all teens attending high school. The first high school-based sentai, Kousoku Sentai Turboranger, was made several years before the first season of MMPR; the five previous Power Ranger seasons did not have a high-school base in the original Sentai, nor does Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger or Tensou Sentai Goseiger, which were the basis for the PR high-school series, Dino Thunder and Megaforce respectively.
- This is the first Sentai Series to feature a Silver Ranger.
- This is the final Sentai to have two females on the team until Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger.
- This is the final Sentai where the main mech does not have individualized pieces for each member.
- Further, due to the unique set-up of Galaxy Mega, this is the only main mech other than Battle Fever Robo and DaiDenzin where all members share the cockpit in all forms.
- The sound that is played when the Death Neziros appears on screen is the TARDIS sound from Doctor Who. This is due to the BBC giving sound clips to Toei.
- The Red/Black/Blue/Yellow/Pink/Silver color scheme for the rangers would not be used again until GoGo Sentai Boukenger.
- The original concept of the season was Gigaranger; it was to involve Ranger heroes in space with mecha based on five space vehicle and a transforming colony.
