Tokusatsu (特撮), sometimes shortened to Toku, is a Japanese term that applies to any live-action film or television drama that usually features superheroes and makes considerable use of special effects (tokusatsu literally translates as "special filming" in Japanese).

Tokusatsu is the genre that the Ultra Series belongs to. Other popular tokusatsu franchises are the Kamen Rider Series (1971-present), Super Sentai (1975-present) and the Metal Hero Series (1982-1998) series.
