Added DiffLines:

* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: There are a few instances where Lina drops an ethnic slur, and the author himself is not pleased that he has to type them, always expressing his disgust after each offensive remark Lina makes (even though she never means to offend anyone). Other offensive jokes the author is disgusted with include the joke she cracks about autism in episode 16.

* {{Ouran}}: Pops up here (as it did in ''FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal'') as a fairly recent ballet that had its origins in the BigApple. Haruhi Fujioka is this time danced by Michelle.



* XMeetsY: ''PrettyCure'' meets ''FanFic/EigaSentaiScanranger'' with a heaping dose of DarkerAndEdgier.

* CountryMatters: Lina gets the first instance of the C word in ''any'' Pretty Cure series (unless you count Shugo mentioning the trope name and using phonetics in her own series, as well as a couple of [[CurseCutShort Curses Cut Short]] in the same series), and the way she delivers it, it's a sign that things have become real serious. Then again, her choice of words indicate that she may be channeling [[KickAss Hit Girl]].

* MeaningfulName: Penny Arcadia, who reads a lot of ''PennyArcade''. Also, Lina Eastwood, whose name is a portmanteau of [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] and ClintEastwood. The latter's name is lampshaded when Fannie remarks, "Doesn't Lina Eastwood sound like a SpaghettiWestern character's name?" This refers to Lina Inverse sharing traits with the most famous SpaghettiWestern character to date (TheManWithNoName), such as being a drifter, and Clint Eastwood portraying said SpaghettiWestern character.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Lina mentions in episode 23 that she'd taken a lot of pain that could only come from being drawn and quartered, [[DroppedABridgeOnHim being crushed by a bridge]], or watching Traci Lords porn. The last one is NotSoHarmless, though, when you realize that Traci Lords was underage when she filmed most of her porn, with only one exception (''Traci, I Love You'').
** Also, in a later episode, Lina says, "The deepest circle of Hell, as I have observed myself, is reserved for traitors, mutineers, and [[TheOtherWiki Reichstag climbers]]."
** In episode 1, the author states that Lucifer is responsible for "the Black Plague, the Spanish Inquisition, and the porn of Traci Lords." Not surprising, since the author had previously mentioned the Party Van in his [[FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal first series]]. In a nod to MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie (and possibly WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of said movie), Bia brought up the BradyBunch reunion in a comment.
* AshesToCrashes: Noel Eastwood's grave is robbed in episode 40 by Deuce, and this infuriates Lina to no end; once she finds out, her sailor-mouth button remains stuck until Pretty Cure rescues the body, which they caught Deuce experimenting on, and reinters it in the same grave where Deuce found it.

* IfItsYouItsOkay: Lina's teammates in Pretty Cure, including Cure Horror (the redeemed Krueger) later on, are not the least bit angry about her PornStash (since her family is OK with the stash) or jealous that they can't have a stash like it.



* PornStash: Lina has a VHS tape stash consisting mainly of Caballero Control Corporation tapes she inherited from her father that she keeps out of her AnnoyingYoungerSibling Biff's reach. Only her immediate family and her teammates in Pretty Cure know of her stash.
** When her mother Muriel reveals the stash to Alex and the others when they use the house as Pretty Cure HQ, she explains that the father of Noel Eastwood (the DisappearedDad) had connections with Al Bloom and acquired a bunch of porn. [[EvenEvilHasStandards The only porn he wouldn't touch was the porn that featured Traci Lords]], which qualifies as HilariousInHindsight when you realize that, with the exception of ''Traci, I Love You'', all the porn Lords had appeared in during her career in the industry was revealed to be child porn before the decade was out. Noel got the entire stash for his 18th birthday, and when he died in a freak accident on the set of a movie a few years before the series takes place, Lina inherited the entire stash, seeing that she was the eldest child despite being only a middle schooler when the stash was passed down to her. As seen in episode 5, Lina takes a bunch of precautions to make sure her unknowing brother doesn't stumble in while she's watching any of it or curiously pick one up unknowingly.

* CirclesOfHell: After the Cures find out about the passage of Bill 156, they become suspicious about Lucifer's true motives. To confirm their suspicions, Lina is chosen to go to Hell as a spy for the Cures to get some intel on their enemy in a second half episode. Upon reaching the ninth circle (where she learned Lucifer resides), she discovers that he had been traversing the Earth under the name [[spoiler:Shintarou Ishihara]] and promptly returns to Earth to warn her friends.
* ClusterFBomb: Lina is so foul-mouthed, she sometimes gives those around her a SweatDrop.

* [[SirSwearsALot Dame Swears-A-Lot]]: Lina has the saltiest mouth out of all the characters.

By this point, however, Lina's been steering clear of blasphemy altogether (including frivolous use of "Goddamn" and "Jesus Christ" and their derivatives as expletives or intensifiers); it should also be noted that she was actually ''shocked at the nature of the dirty trick the mob had pulled on her'' and wasn't intending to comment on the interpretation of religious beliefs.

* ItsAWonderfulPlot: At the start of the Christmas episode, Alex is assaulted by Lucifer himself when confronting him about Bill 156 when he shows up. This hurts so bad, Alex wishes he had never been born. The angel Michael shows up to show him what Hollywood would be like had he never been born: Michelle quit dancing after twisting her ankle (as Alex wasn't there to help her), Ruby fell foul of anti-obscenity laws with an online Internet purchase, Penny is a dropout and a derelict who gets drunk every day, Lina is a dropout and a member of the toughest gang in Hollywood, and Fannie is dead, since Pretty Cure wasn't there to save her.

** It gets even weirder: toward the holiday season, it's revealed that he currently roams the Earth under the pseudonym [[TakeThat Shintarou Ishihara]] and is directly responsible for Tokyo pulling a FaceHeelTurn on the otaku nation and [[TheTokyoFireball the city's eventual destruction]]. Although the otaku nation is responsible for wrecking the city (as seen in [[FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal Pretty Cure Heavy Metal World Tour]]), [[TakingYouWithMe he certainly didn't help matters when the Hollywood Stars Cures track him back to Tokyo and defeat him and he tries to drag them to hell with him, completing the city's destruction in the process]].



* ShoutOut: Episode 21 is a ShoutOut to ''Film/{{Scream}}'', and episode 22 to ''Scream 2''. Episode 21 also starts with a LawAndOrder-style opening that Lina barges into as she describes the episode's murder mystery to the audience as the murder itself is displayed.

* StrawmanPolitical: Ishihara is portrayed here as the Devil himself. Here's what Jonathan Coulton has to say about people like him:
-->''He weren't the nicest fella, and he had a couple problems\\
Cuz he drank a lot, and he beat his wife, and he always acted rude\\
Killed and ate some babies, and he copped an attitude''

* TemptingFate: Just like in ''Film/{{Scream}}'', the phrase "I'll be right back!" is treated as such, as characters have been known to die within the episode they said it in. Lina says it sometimes, [[TheyKilledKenny if only because she knows she has]] ContractualImmortality [[TheyKilledKenny backing her]], most notably when Hollywood High's fate hinges on a WireDilemma and Lina makes the mistake of saying "I'll be right back!" before setting off to deactivate the Computerized Wrecking Crew 3000.



* TooSoon: Due to a real-life event at the high school he used to go to happening the week episode 48 was to be posted, the episode's been altered before posting since posting fanfiction that even Creator/MichaelBay would find hard to emulate on film is considered poor taste among said high school's students. Sure, the plot remains the same (complete with a WireDilemma), but now Lina/Cure Western is trying to cut wires to incapacitate a machine that automatically activates a wrecking ball outside Hollywood High.
* TheTwist: Lina is '''''INFURIATED''''' to find out what the Mafia pulled on her with the so-called "minority" gang toward the end of episode 47. So angry, in fact, that she's obviously trying her hardest not to blaspheme.
