Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (侍戦隊シンケンジャー, Samurai Sentai Shinkenjā?, [α]) is the title of Toei Company's thirty-third entry in its long-running Super Sentai Series of Japanese tokusatsu television series. It premiered on February 15, 2009, the week following the finale of Engine Sentai Go-onger. It joins Kamen Rider Decade as a program featured in TV Asahi's Super Hero Time programming block, and following Decade's finale it airs alongside Kamen Rider Double. The series' motif is that of traditional Japanese culture.

A Power Rangers adaptation of the series (which have occurred non-stop since the American-adaptations began in 1993) is not currently planned, due to the Disney-owned production company shutting down in 2009 in favor of a 2010 re-broadcast of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series.


For 18 generations, samurai of the Shiba House (志葉家, Shiba Ke?) have suppressed the evil intentions of the Gedoushu, malevolent spirits that enter the world of the living from gaps between buildings and other structures. Now, the youngest head of the Shiba Clan must gather his four vassals (家臣, kashin?) in order to battle the Gedoushu as the Shinkengers.
