* Integral to the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' series. Invariably, they're possessed objects turned rampaging beasts which the heroines fight, defeat and purify, albeit there are cases of animals and even people being possessed. In the first [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure two]] [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar seasons]] the villains summoned ghost-like spirits (Zakenna and Uzaina respectively) to create the monsters; in following seasons, the bad guys used different tools to achieve the same results, such as [[CoolMask masks]] ([[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Kowaina]]), spheres (Hoshina from ''[=PC5=]'''s sequel ''GO!GO!''), diamond-shaped cards ([[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Nakewameke]]), [[OurSoulsAreDifferent wiltering Flower Hearts]] ([[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Desertrian]]), [[BrownNote corrupted musical notes]] ([[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Negatone]]) and [[MonsterClown clown noses]] containing a [[MacGuffin Cure Decor]] ([[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Akanbe]]). The [[Anime/DokiDokiPreCure Jikochuus]] are the exception to the rule as they are created with [[TheHeartless the selfish and petty thoughts of a person's heart]] without the need of possessing anything. [[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure saiarks]] and [[Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure zetsuborgs]] do have the need to possess,but they can possess humans. [[Anime/MahoGirlsPrettyCure yokubaru]] need to possess 2 or more objects,
