** There is information that this series will be brought over as Seasons 3 and 4 of Creator/SabanBrands' ''Glitter Force'' dub series with even more episodes chopped out. Like with ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'', people are divided over having this series finally brought to America and the fact that it's ''still'' being handled by Saban.

** Aguri/Cure Ace is immensely disliked, and is one of the reasons for for the show's low TV ratings, due to to how she was introduced, her bratty Drill Sargent Nature, and the fact that she ends up replacing Makoto as the expositor for most of the remaining MythArc. Made worse by the fact that she tried to kill an amnesiac and powerless Ira. Turns out it was a test, but fans still hate her for it.
*** Explanation on how she's introduced: A new Cure is '''always''' a previously established character, and with that is sometimes either royality or a girl who made a HeelFaceTurn. Aguri is despised for breaking that tradition and [[ReplacementScrappy replacing a fan favorite]]. It looked like it was making Regina the new Cure. It is sadly thrown out when King Jikochu makes her evil again. Then Cure Ace shows up and easily deafeats Regina, who is PutOnABus for nearly the entire second half of Doki Doki. In the same episode it's quickly revealed that Ace is an Elementary School girl named Aguri, '''a new character who appears out of nowhere.''' Who then proceeds to do nothing but tell off the girls for several episodes.

* SoCoolItsAwesome: For many fans, this is the first series to really embody this since ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', due to the darker plot compared to [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure the previous]] [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure two seasons]] and bucking a couple trends started in ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure''. Cure Ace, for people who see her as the coolest Cure since Cure Moonlight see her specifically as this as well.

** Apparently, some people believe that being both TheSociopath and a CardCarryingVillain crosses the MoralEventHorizon. Obviously, there are those that would beg to differ. Case in point: Makopi's reaction to Mana wanting to befriend Regina in episode 16 caused both sides to vent at each other.
** The Regina plot and the reveal of Cure Ace [[spoiler: is either an ambitious subversion of the standard DarkMagicalGirl plot or a poorly written ShockingSwerve. [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] [[GoldenMeanFallacy both.]]]]
** Cure Ace herself. Is she a really badass and awesome new addition to the team or a badly shoehorned-in character who makes no sense? Is her being noticeably older than the Cures when transformed and noticeably younger when not appealing or off-putting? Is she a cool AloofAlly who just wants to help the girls to get stronger [[FigureItOutYourself however indirectly]] or is she a smug and condescending girl who does nothing to help the Cures but takes the credit anyway? Fans seem to be rather split on this.
** People in the fandom either dislike Mana/Cure Heart or see her an awesome, refreshing magical girl protagonist.

** Apparently, some people believe Regina, early on. Some of the fans thought she was completely unlikable and that being both TheSociopath and a CardCarryingVillain crosses the MoralEventHorizon. Obviously, there are those Makoto was right to reject her, others that would beg to differ. Case in point: Makopi's reaction to she was cute and just needed help and that Mana wanting was right to befriend her. This tapered off late in the series as ''both'' sides embraced Regina in episode 16 caused both sides to vent at each other.

* ContestedSequel: ''Doki Doki!'' is the most polarizing season in the franchise thus far. Detractors are unhappy with this season due to perceived pacing problems as well as too much focus being given to Mana and Regina at the expense of the other characters, especially Rikka and Alice (albeit not quite to the extent the [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure previous]] [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure two seasons]]), while fans love the season for being DarkerAndEdgier. [[BaseBreaker And then there's the reveal of Cure Ace]]...

* VindicatedByHistory: Mana/Heart and Aguri/Ace were considered huge [[BaseBreaker Base Breakers]] during and after the show's run. However, they seem to get this as shown in [[https://www.reddit.com/r/precure/comments/42ktqv/cures_by_popularity_in_japanese/ in the 2015 Precure characters poll]]. Aguri was actually the ''top-ranking'' of the [=DokiDoki=] Cures, with Mana shortly following after her, and both rank in the top 10. This happens at least in the Japanese fandom as the two are still [[AmericansHateTingle extremely polarizing characters]] in the West.

to:

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Between the {{Gender Blender Name}}s, typical cute mascot looks, and the fact that they're all voiced by women that don't even try to sound masculine, it's very easy to miss the fact that Raquel and Lance are male.

** There is an infamous ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' doujin [[http://i5.minus.com/jb1jI5iQwpJBO6.jpg out there]] that has the characters modeled after ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. Come this season, the title of Episode 23 has the words '''[[AnimeThemeSong Ai Wo Torimodose]]''' in it.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The premise of NonSerialMovie (Mana's getting married to a guy) is this as a response to Mana's LesYay tendencies being overblown by fans. But in the end, it didn't do much.
** That after [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure the previous season]] consisted almost entirely of {{Filler}} episodes, ''Doki Doki'''s entire season is practically relevant to the plot.
