* BaseBreakingCharacter: Cure Echo is disliked among a group of fans for taking away focus from the other cures for the majority of her debut movie and doing even less than Shiny Luminous. It's made worse by the fact that she doesn't even become a Cure until the final 10 minutes of ''New Stage 1'', and doesn't even fight, all she does is give Fuu-chan a cooldown hug then de-transforms. On the other hand, quite a number of fans find her an EnsembleDarkhorse and wish that she appeared in one of the TV series.

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The little SliceOfLife sections from the dance segments in ''Spring Carnival''. For longtime viewers of the series, seeing some of their favorite characters in their own settings really brings home the nostalgia factor. Here are some examples:
** ''[[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Splash☆Star]]'': Saki and Mai are losing a volleyball game but are spurred on by their cheering friends and are able to turn the game around. The girls then engage in a celebratory hug. And for meta-Heartwarming points, the cameo appearances of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Michiru and Kaoru]] as Cure Bright and Cure Windy.
** ''[[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Fresh!]]'': On top of bringing back the first ED theme, which alone can count as a meta-Moment of Heartwarming, the Cures are seen giving hearts to many of the side characters, including their families, Kaoru, Westar, Soular, and some of Labyrinth's children. After the dance, Love says that while Setsuna has been absent for a while due to reforming Labyrinth, she, Miki, and Inori still consider her to be their precious friend. Setsuna smiles in response.
** ''[[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure HeartCatch!]]'': [[PosthumousCharacter Cologne]], Yuri's long-forgotten fairy partner, is shown on-screen for the first time since 2010. Even Yuri is moved to tears.
** ''[[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Suite♪]]'': Ako smiling with the [[spoiler: purified Noise]] and giving her mom a bouquet of flowers, followed by the rest of the Cures jumping in for a group hug. Hibiki playing piano with both her mom and dad looking on can also be one due to how little time either can spend with their daughter.
** ''[[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Smile!]]'': Miyuki and the gang get together to celebrate Candy's birthday. Needless to say, there were smiles on both sides of the fourth wall.
** ''[[Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure DokiDoki]]'': Rather than a SliceOfLife segment, ''[=DokiDoki=]'' plays a montage of moments from its run, including Aguri and Eru holding hands in the festival episode and Mana giving Regina a hug during [[spoiler: the final battle]].
** ''[[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure HappinessCharge!]]'': Megumi and the others hold a "Happiness Party", complete with the flowers cut to look like Ribbon and Glassan and Blue making an appearance, [[spoiler:presumably to visit the Cures after helping Red restore his planet]]. Yep, there's plenty to be happy about.
** The ending to ''Everyone Singing - Miraculous Magic'' finally has Cure Echo join in the DancePartyEnding.

* NightmareFuel: Slightly less than halfway through, the second film takes a dive straight into a level of DerangedAnimation rivaled only by the likes of ''RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure''. Even the villains in the second film go to this later on, as in they became the Devil Themselves.

** After the first two ''New Stage'' movies got flak for the lack of speaking roles for most of the previous teams, ''New Stage 3'' onwards has the original duo and at least every leader from each team reprised, ensuring that every season is represented even if it's unfeasible to bring back absolutely everyone's voice actress. ''Miraculous Magic'' also goes further by bringing back Cure Echo and every girl from the three previous seasons instead of just the immediate predecessor and taking cues from the ''DX'' trilogy.

She actually fights this time, and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Enyen and Grell]] become her Fairy Partners. Her return in ''Miraculous Magic'' was also received rather well.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Teaser pictures for ''New Stage'' showed off a number of things including the Smile team under attack by Fusion over the city, Cures Peach, Blossom, Melody and Echo evading attacks by Fusion and a picture of Ayumi with Hibiki, Tsubomi and Love hinting that Ayumi would have known who the Cures were. None of this happened.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: New Stage 2 seems to be saying "Hey kids! You can make friends by being really mean to them and using them for your own ends! They'll still save you even if you've done nothing to deserve it!"
* FauxSymbolism: New Stage 3's premise. It's about a mother tapir who wants to protect her shy, sensitive child from all bad things to the point of going too far, becoming completely overbearing, and hurting others in the process. Doesn't this sound like a very thinly veiled TakeThat to MoralGuardians and the whole "protect the children" idea?
