  • Main character has to fight monsters that want to eat people.
  • Transforms into a different outfit to do so.
  • THE POWER OF LOVE!
Optional elements:
  • Normal people can't see this.
  • Main character possesses an unusual pedigree.
  • The main character has an abnormally high skill level.
  • An obvious rival shows up whose motives either contradict or run parallel to the main character's profession.
  • Main character eventually wins the rival over.

Darn. If it weren't for that love bit, I'd totally say early Bleach is a good example.
Those are for the magical girl warrior subsets. Let's not forget that the magical girl warrior is the youngest sub-section of the genre. There is also the cute witch and the magical idol subsets that you are completely leaving out.

Sounds quite like how American Superheroes had been since the '70s. Makes one wonder if Mahou Shojou are genderbended moe-fied parody of Superheroes in Japan.

I always thought Kamen Rider as boys equivalent of Magical Girls( normal MG, so not Madoka, Nanoha etc) since they both have transforming scenes, Monster of the Week, rivals, weekly aesops and so on.

"Love" is probably too girly for most boys so Kamen Rider usually has "Justice" theme instead.

Quite opposite I bet with the Comic Code: the rule of law states that all good guys must triumph 100% xD

No one triumphed in deconstructions

The MagiRangers came before Kamen Rider Wizard as magical toukusatsu, eventhough i didn't like the story in MagiRangers.
