* ViewerSpeciesConfusion: Io and King. The first one is a particular species of rabbit characterized by having droopy ears; it's easy to think that he's a dog, especially in ''Twinkle'', where he forms a trio with two dog Jewelpets; it ended up being lampshaded in ''Happiness''. As for King, he is supposed to be a French bulldog, but his color scheme makes him look like ''some sort'' of creature who decided to wear a pink rabbit outfit... with a pig-like tail. Truly the stuff that MindScrew is made of.

The mistake would go on to receive lampshades in ''Happiness''. As for King, he ''Kira Deco'' and ''Happiness''.

** Coal is a capybara, a rather obscure animal. Most people think bear or hippo when they first see him.
** Milky is a Chihuahua, but due to her pointy ears she's sometimes thought to be a cat.
** On the other side of the coin, the Scottish Fold Alex is sometimes taken for a dog, again, because of his ears.

* FashionVictimVillain: The Phantom Herb Thieves. Mint looks like a punk reject and Aojisho just looks plain outdated.
* FirstInstallmentWins: The first series in some European countries. In one or two cases, the ''only'' one to be aired. Averted everywhere else.



* MoralEventHorizon: In the first series, the ColonyDrop is considered the point at which the villains have gone too far.
* MostAnnoyingSound: "SAWA! YAKA! SAWA! YAKA! SAWA! YAKA!" would be more tolerable if it weren't repeated loudly and ''ad nauseam'' by Hisashi.
** Labra's crying can definitely make your ear drums bleed.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general fan opinion of the first series.



* UncannyValley: The Jewelpets in the first series have eyes with a weaker shine than in following seasons. This might make them look more like puppets than living beings.
** The first series' non-Jewelpet character designs can also come across as this to some, due to how gaudy and just plain ''weird'' a lot of them are.

* 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.)

* 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:

** Coal, ever since his portrayal in ''Anime/JewelpetKiraDeco'', has become a memetic AudienceSurrogate for the PeripheryDemographic. Unfortunately, he hasn't been relevant since that season.

* 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.



** ''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.



* 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.

charge.



* 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.
