* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Jewelina, specifically the ''Twinkle'' and ''Kira Deco'' versions. Some fans believe she isn't as magnanimous as she appears. In ''Twinkle'', they think she resents Fealina for going to the human world or that Akari is being forced to clean up her mess. In ''Kira Deco'', they take issue with the fact that she dumped [[spoiler:the Dark General]] and therefore created the main conflict in the show.



* BaseBreaker: Jewelina, specifically the ''Twinkle'' and ''Kira Deco'' versions. Some fans believe she [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation isn't as magnanimous as she appears]]. In ''Twinkle'', they think she is somehow a bitch for warning Fealina not to go to the human world or that Akari is being forced to clean up her mess. In ''Kira Deco'', they take issue with the fact that she dumped [[spoiler:the Dark General]] and therefore created the main conflict in the show.

* AwesomeMusic: All openings and endings are extremely catchy and memorable.

* CanonSue: Ruby. She's clumsy and irresponsible, but is also TheChosenOne, super-powerful and always knows the right thing to say or do. Also gets very little comeuppance for the crap she pulls. (Remember her abuse of Opal in ''Sunshine''? People chastised her, but she never actually apologized, and later even made a speech to Opal which made her seem like she was in the right.)

* MemeticMutation: ''[[Anime/OnegaiMyMelody Onegai My Ruby]]'' for the first series, due to the similarities between it and ''Onegai My Melody''.
** Genshiro Hattori, [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar the 65th successor of the Hokuto Shinken]].[[labelnote:*]]Hattori himself is loosely based on the main character of ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', Kenshiro. This one is totally not unintentional as some of his moves and mannerisms were borrowed from that character.[[/labelnote]]
** ''Code Dian: Andy of the Rebellion''.[[labelnote:*]]In episode 36 of the first series, Dian transformed into a human guy named Andy Samael, who actually looked like [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch]]. Fittingly, he is voiced by Creator/JunFukuyama which fits his role as a MagnificentBastard.[[/labelnote]]
** Keigo Tatewaki, the lost member of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Celestial Being]].[[labelnote:*]]Fans had no idea who Tatewaki's voice actor was when the series first aired. Then the ending credits revealed that Creator/MamoruMiyano was doing his voice, which is hilarious considering he voiced [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Setsuna]]. Miyano doesn't usually voice {{Butt Monkey}}s. Until the gag OVA of the series and some CD Dramas showing Setsuna's humorous side were released, fans were rather shocked with Miyano's role.[[/labelnote]]
** "Everything is Ruby's fault."[[labelnote:*]]Because of the reveal at the end of ''Happiness'' and Ruby's reputation to cause disaster wherever she goes, fans have taken to joking that the major crisis driving an anime's plot is Ruby's fault somehow. The funny thing is that [[DeadUnicornTrope this is only true]] of ''Happiness'' so far.[[/labelnote]]

* AmericansHateTingle: This franchise might be popular in its homecountry and some countries has some good to mixed reaction to some anime seasons. But the franchise and anime had a cold reception towards English Anime fans, particularly the fansubbing community due to the stigma of being a Sanrio Franchise[[note]]Yes, there are some anime fans who dislike anything Sanrio related[[/note]] attached to it and even a niche part of the fanbase cared for it. Even American licensors can't touch it due to being a franchise for little girls.
** Most precise example is Labra, on which she is reviled by some English Fans for being an even worse [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] than Ruby, but Japan seriously love her to death and that [[http://www.pixiv.net/search.php?s_mode=s_tag_full&word=%E3%83%A9%E3%83%96%E3%83%A9 she beats fan favorites in the Pixiv popularity poll.]]

Europe, it didn't do that well there.
** Most precise For a character example there is Labra, on which she is who's reviled by some English Fans a lot of western fans for being an even worse [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] than Ruby, extremely annoying, but Japan seriously seems to love her to death and that death, as proven by this [[http://www.pixiv.net/search.php?s_mode=s_tag_full&word=%E3%83%A9%E3%83%96%E3%83%A9 she beats fan favorites in the Pixiv popularity poll.]]



** "Strawberry Time", an insert song from the first series used to defeat Dian.
** Background music isn't anything shabby either. See the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhGMqoMnH1U epic sounding introduction]] to every episode of the first series.



** The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f90VG2WoYfo Strawberry Time]]" on episode 37 of the first series is even catchier.



* FandomRivalry: A minor one with ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Threads about MLP in an anime forum invariably feature at least one comparison between the two, followed by wankery about which one is better.

** The franchise was marketed to hell and back when the first series started airing in Europe, but enthusiasm for it died down a year or so later, with a lot of countries only airing the first two seasons (sometimes, not even the second one). When it came time for ''Sunshine'''s debut, only Spain and Portugal were left, thanks to the efforts of Luk Internacional (to give you an idea, they also brought the entirety of ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody''). And as of ''Kira Deco'', Portugal is officially the only European country left still airing new seasons.
* GirlShowGhetto: The reason for the franchise or the anime not being officially released outside Japan.
* HilariousInHindsight: During the course of the entire franchise, [[Creator/AyakaSaitou Ruby]] was sometimes portrayed as an innocent but outlandishly cute magical rabbit, who is sometimes clumsy and rather mischievous. Fast forward to 2016, and Saitou now voiced a [[Anime/MahoGirlsPreCure living magical teddy bear who actually is the same]] as Ruby.
** In Happiness, [[Creator/AkiToyosaki Angela]] had a secret crush on [[Creator/RyoheiKimura Takumi Asano]], who also secretly loves her. Then ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' came and they have been promoted to true lovers, but the former didn't lived to see him again.
** Also in Happiness, [[Creator/MegumiHan Chiari Tsukikage]] befriends Angela in the first episode. Then ''Anime/KamisamaMinaraiHimitsuNoCocotama'' came and both became [[FanNickname Furry Egg Underpants Gods]], with the latter having a SempaiKohai relationship with the former.

young adults can't help its case either.



* MostAnnoyingSound: Labra's crying in all seasons. It can definitely make your ear drums bleed.
* NightmareFuel: The scene in the movie where Park [[spoiler:morphs into his monstrous form]] will most likely startle first-time viewers.

* PeripheryDemographic: At first, the entire franchise appealed to girls only. It was with the release of ''Twinkle'' that the series started appealing to older demographics, including otakus. ''Sunshine'' followed and the series did get an even bigger fanbase, though Twinkle is still more prominent.

** Labra, due to being a KidAppealCharacter who always complain on things and pretty much being too bratty which is the reason why the [[AmericansHateTingle English Anime Fanbase hated her]].
* SnarkBait: The ''ENRIRE'' Sweets Dance Princess Movie. Everything in the movie is one big bait to dedicated fans that ended as both a BoxOfficeBomb and AcclaimedFlop. This mainly due that they think the movie will be a crossover between 4 seasons in a CrisisCrossover, but it turned out to be a generic 63 minute advertisement for the Sweetspets with little to no plot.
