七変化 Literally "Seven Transformations"


Refers to a series of rapid costume changes or transformations.

A lot of Sentai heroines (especially pink rangers) have been known to do a lot of costume changes in an effort to bewilder an enemy.

More Information

The number seven probably comes from the number of colors there are in a rainbow. In practice, the term just means a series of "quick transformations".
