Main characters can't be Creator's Pets.
* CreatorsPet / 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.)

Memetic Sex God has been cut per TRS. All wicks will be deleted.
* MemeticSexGod: Judging by the fanart, Garnet and Macaronia for the pets, and Akari and Kanon for the humans.

* ContestedSequel: ''Sweets Dance Princess'' has some fans in doubt of whether it's a decent first attempt at a film, or just a big shameless ad for the Sweetspets.

Added DiffLines:
* AmericansHateTingle: This franchise might be mega-popular in its homecountry, but America absolutely won't touch it because of the stigma attached to [[GirlShowGhetto shows for little girls]], and even in the fansubbing scene, very few people care about it. And while it got exported to Europe, it didn't do that well there.

* EarWorm: The opening of the first series.
to:
* EarWorm: The Most opening of the first series.and ending songs, really. Wouldn't be kids' anime without those.

Added DiffLines:
* EarWorm: The opening of ** Coal, ever since his portrayal in ''Anime/JewelpetKiraDeco'', has become a memetic AudienceSurrogate for the first series.PeripheryDemographic. Unfortunately, he hasn't been relevant since that season.

Moved Kira Deco items to their own page.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: The Blu-ray Selection box of ''Kira Deco'' only included 16 select episodes, all of them important to the series' initial plot. However, it causes a lot of {{Plot Hole}}s as not all the episodes were released due to the series' negative reception.

* ContestedSequel: ''Kira Deco'' qualifies as this, largely because most complainers belong to the PeripheryDemographic and they are disappointed with how much more childish the fourth season is compared to previous seasons, which often went out of their way to appeal to the otaku crowd. ''Sweets Dance Princess'' also had some fans in doubt of whether it's a decent first attempt at a film, or just a big shameless ad for the Sweetspets.

** ''Onegai My Jewelpet Kirara Deco'' for ''Kira Deco'' due to its plot being highly similar to ''Onegai My Melody Kirara''. And note that both of these series are considered the worst incarnations, except that ''Onegai My Melody Kirara'' turned out to be a FranchiseKiller for the ''My Melody'' anime.

** Pretending to be ''Kira Deco''-era Angela and Labra and arresting people for saying something which ticks them off (like FandomHeresy).

* {{Moe}}: Yamirin from ''Kira Deco''. [[spoiler:It helps that she was designed by an in-universe otaku.]]

* {{Narm}}: Labra's [[spoiler:death]] in episode 51 of ''Kira Deco'' loses all its impact when they show Angela's shocked reaction, which is super-deformed. * NightmareFuel: Episode 25 of ''Kira Deco'', featuring a village of saury. Coal casts a spell to rot its inhabitants, and we get to see decaying zombie saury as a result. Then the unaffected saury decide to ''commit suicide'' by throwing themselves in a fire, to avoid becoming spoiled food. Yes, they do see themselves as food, and think it's a great honor to be killed and eaten by other beings. Even if the show treats the whole situation as absurd, it's pretty freaking horrible when you think about it. ** The scene in the movie where Park [[spoiler:morphs into his monstrous form]] will most likely startle first-time viewers.

** Pink gets a lot of CostumePorn thrown on her to appease the older (male otaku) audiences. * PeripheryDemographic: At first, the entire franchise appealed to girls only. It was with the release of ''Twinkle'' that the series started pandering to the older demographic, including otakus. That is because ''Twinkle'' has the producer of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew'' and ''Anime/NanatsuiroDrops'' in charge. ** Same goes for ''Kira Deco'', to which the writer of ''Anime/TanteiOperaMilkyHolmes'' added more insanity to appeal to older males.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some people dislike ''Kira Deco'' for being LighterAndSofter and much sillier than the seasons that preceded it. * ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: ''Kira Deco'' is generically regarded as ''Jewelpet'' on drugs.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Some episodes of ''Kira Deco'' are so out there that it makes you think the writers were on crack. Exhibit A - the episode with a village of DeathSeeker sardines. * {{Woolseyism}}: In episode 1 of ''Kira Deco'', Opal calls Ruby '{{Baka}}' and a discussion ensues about how Opal is more 'baka' because the word needs the characters of 'horse' (which Opal is) and 'deer' to be formed. In the Portuguese dub, Opal calls Ruby 'burra', which means both 'stupid' and 'donkey', and Garnet remarks that she is more 'burra' because of the closeness in species between horses and donkeys.

** 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). Only Spain and Portugal air seasons after ''Twinkle'' now, thanks to the efforts of Luk Internacional (to give you an idea, they also brought the entirety of ''Anime/OnegaiMyMelody''), likely because they have some kind of deal with TV Tokyo or Sanrio.

Moving Happiness items.
** Marie Hanazono from ''Happiness''. You love her for being by far the most complex character in the show and the fact that she's the only one to have any meaningful character development, or you hate her because she's an egocentric, one-track-minded, whiny little bitch who butts in a lot. Most characters from ''Happiness'' tend to be this trope in general.

** ''Happiness'' is this as well, though it's generally agreed it's far from the franchise's best.

* FlatCharacter[=/=]StaticCharacter: A common criticism of ''Happiness'' is that nearly all the human characters are this.

* HilariousInHindsight: The relationship between Angela and Takumi mirrors that of [[Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator L-elf and Lieselotte]]. * ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Some fans have accused ''Happiness'' of trying too much to be like a LighterAndSofter ''Sunshine'' and not its own thing.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general fan opinion of the first series and ''Happiness''. * StrangledByTheRedString: Ruruka/Takumi from ''Happiness''. She doesn't interact with him a lot, and certainly not in a significant way. Yet she decides to give him Valentine's chocolate for some reason. It's a very poorly developed relationship compared with Chiari/Kosuke and Nene/Mouri.

* ValuesResonance: Episode 14 of ''Happiness'' has Taira not only admitting that he loves the Jewelpets, but he is liked and celebrated for it. SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped anyone?

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Happiness'' attempts this by going back to the popular-with-older-audiences style of ''Sunshine'' after ''Kira Deco'''s failure.
