A Yellow Sentai member has been a tradition for 26 years, starting from Flashman. The new series, Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, breaks this tradition and chief producer, Takahito Ohmori explains why there is no KyoryuYellow.
“This is actually not the first time a team is without a Yellow member, J.A.K.Q, Battle Fever J and Dengeki Sentai Changeman never had a Yellow member. When it was decided that the Kyoryuger’s would be required to defeat a dinosaur in order to be able to transform, we wanted the characters to be absurdly strong. In order to show this, we chose to have more male characters over female characters. Seeing how modern Yellows have been female, we couldn’t have a male Yellow. If the Yellow was a male, the kids would probably think is feminine and we wanted to avoid that.”
