Power Copying is a technique used in multiple tokusatsu shows. It refers to when a hero or villain can change into previous heroes and use their powers., usually in an anniversary series or film. This is typically accomplished through some sort of collectible device. The first such character was Great Leader JUDOIcon-crosswiki of Kamen Rider SpiritsIcon-crosswiki, who could change into any of the previous nine Showa Riders, aside from Riderman. The first live action example was AkaRedIcon-crosswiki, who could change into any of the leading Sentai RedIcon-crosswikis. Other examples of this technique are Kamen Rider DecadeIcon-crosswiki for the Kamen Rider series, the GokaigersIcon-crosswiki for the Super Sentai series, Ultraman Ginga for the Ultra series, and the Mega RangersIcon-crosswiki for Power Rangers.

It is also common for heroes and villains to assume alternate forms based on past heroes, such as Kamen Rider GaimIcon-crosswiki and Kamen Rider FifteenIcon-crosswiki.
