-The 2020 series will be sports themed and/or have Olympics influence. (Before 16JUL)
You know, I was coming in here to make a joke about this persistent rumor and am pleased to see it still pops up every time.

I`d be down for an Olympic/sports themed Sentai if true.It`d be something new.
I do hope that we can get a Sentai that doesn`t have a gold sixth Ranger for once.Although an Olympic themed Sentai would technically require it

No... if the five core rangers are the colours of the Olympic rings (yellow, blue, green, black, and red) then the sixth should be white, the background colour on that flag.

I think with the recent sales troubles they won't experiment too much with the theme and will pick something they know has a good chance of moving merch which is why I'm doubting the sports rumor. What mecha do you give sports themed rangers for example? They'd need a strong secondary theme.

The Olympics are also not something I can see a lot of kids really caring for, so it would be a weird choice to create a toyline around it. Sports or physical activity in general as a secondary theme would work better imo, like ToQger had imagination but the toys were based on trains.

Maybe we'll have a metallic trio, gold silver and bronze? Or maybe the main five will have accents of those in their suits? Or Red will have a Gold power up?

I think there's 100% chance that it will follow Olympic colors.

Guessing this team will appear during their opening celebrations...

Definitely a fair point. My personal thought is that they just use the idea of sports mascots to bring animals into the mix. Easily something they can sell well.

They can also always just do some kind of cars again.

The Olympics as a theme for the villains could be nice. As in each monster is made up from an olympic sport of some kind or has a sport motif mixed into their design. I think that'd work better than trying to make the rangers with sports.

With how many times we've had a second Red Ranger, it boggles my mind TOEI has never pulled the trigger on a dedicated Bronze Ranger.

It's just red with the same metallic finish they give gold and silver. It's easy.

A Gold, Silver and Bronze trio would be fun. Though the last time we had Olympic colors, they stopped short of Bronze.

It's gonna be easier this year to make fake rumors with next year Olympics so most of these rumors will be even more pointless than ever XD

Now, i wouldn't mind that theme as long as it doesn't feel out of place *cough*Goggle V*cough*.

Mascots would work very well. They could use Go-Onger as a template with the mascots taking the place of the engine souls when they appeared as little graphics out of the changer.

Yup. It's definitely doable. I would theorize that they further extrapolate on the mechanism tested out with YokuRyuOh, and have several ball-animal-robot mecha. But that's just me theorizing.

I don't think Olympic could every carry a series, as the standalone theme. It works better a secondary theme. Sport characterization could come from powers rather than weapons - like speed, strength, jumping, tossing.

Who am I kidding? Sentai 2020 is gonna be bugs.

How about Mythology with Greek culture like Mecha representing Zeus or Ares ? How do kids these days in Japan love Mythology ? Or they can go motor sport for the mecha.

Hey, considering they had to attract girls again, it worked well alongside and they made it work.
