The eighth entry in the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' franchise.

In the musical world of Major Land, peace is protected by the "Legendary Score" and the Melody of Happiness contained within. On the annual performance of the Melody of Happiness, the Score is stolen by the jealous king of Minor Land, Mephisto, who turns it into a [[EmotionBomb Melody of Sorrow]]. To stop Mephisto from sucking the happiness from Major Land right then and there, the queen of Major Land, Aphirodite, scatters the Notes of the Score and sends them to Earth. She then instructs Hummy, the Songstress chosen to sing the Melody of Happiness that year, to go to Earth and retrieve the Notes before Mephisto can.

Meanwhile, middle school sophomores and former childhood friends [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl Hibiki Houjou and Kanade Minamino]] are recovering from [[VitriolicBestBuds yet another fight with each other]] when they encounter Siren, a former Songstress of Major Land who has defected to Mephisto's side. Siren attempts to take the G-Clefs within their hearts for the Melody of Sorrow, but accidentally triggers an amazing potential, causing the girls to transform into Major World's champions, Pretty Cure.

As Cure Melody and Cure Rhythm respectively, it's now up to Hibiki and Kanade to work with Hummy and gather the Notes of the Legendary Score. However, it's not so simple: the Pretty Cure power is fuelled by ThePowerOfFriendship, and the two former-friends have many, ''many'' issues that they need to work out first.

The Pretty Cure PowerTrio is later completed with the arrival of Cure Beat. Throughout the series, they also are joined by AloofAlly Cure Muse, a mysterious [[MaskPower masked fighter]] who [[MysteriousProtector helps out Pretty Cure]] but claims no affiliation with them.

----
!!''Suite Pretty Cure'' has examples of:

* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: Kanade's mom. ''Seriously.''
* AerithAndBob: The names of [[spoiler:the Major Land royal family... Aphrodite, Mephisto, and ''Ako''. Though it's sometimes presumed that, when the last of these isn't hiding out on Earth with a name that wouldn't draw attention, it's normally written ''Aco'', short for "acoustic".]]
* BadassFamily: In a musical sense. Hibiki's dad is completely immune to the Melody of Sorrow because he believes music should make people happy. Her mother goes a step beyond this and can actually ''counteract it with her violin''. [[spoiler:However, Hibiki's dad finally gave in a little against the Negatone in episode 41, though it can be justified that at that point, the Negatones have gotten more powerful for someone like him.]]
** Also, [[spoiler:the royal family of Major Land. One's a Precure, one was a major villain, one essentially gives the Cures their powers, and the last one...]]
* BigDamnMovie: ''Torimodose! Kokoro ga Tsunagu Kiseki no Melody!'' What happen if the SoleSurvivor of Major Land points out the BigGood is the one who turned Major Land's citizens into FateWorseThanDeath? And by contrast of most Precure movies, it explicitly deems canon by WordOfGod, placed between episode 36 and 37. [[spoiler:And also serves as foreshadowing; [[TakenForGranite Howling's action in the movie]] actually has the closest result as [[WorldOfSilence Noise's true goal]], which then he does so himself in finale arc, than his other minions.]]
* BookEnds: Both the first and last episodes ends with Transformation sequences.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Rhythm, Melody and Beat do this in episode 30, when they ask their quiz question to the Trio the Minor, Rhythm speaks to the viewer that they can also give the answer.
* BrownNote: Everytime a Negatone produces soundwaves, everyone within range falls into sadness.
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "Let's Play! Pretty Cure Modulation!!"
* ClockTower: There's one located in the center of Kanon Town, which is used by Siren and Trio the Minor as their HomeBase. It is eventually turned into a Negatone by Mephisto in episode 21.
* DancingTheme: They did it again.
* TheDarkSide: The "Noise of Evil". Benefits include the ability to create [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]], a {{Hive Mind}}-esque ability to communicate with Mephisto, and a [[EvilIsHammy inflated sense of hamminess]]. Downsides include ''[[GoodHurtsEvil physical pain]]'' when you hear "happy" music, [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]] and an all-round increase in [[{{Jerkass}} self-absorbed jerkassness]].
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything:
** With all the talk of "true friends" and "we're breaking up", episode 8 seems more like a love triangle than it does a tale of someone getting between two friends.
** The [[HehHehYouSaidX Cross]] Rods, which combines Melody and Rhythm's Belltiers after both of them became mentally closer.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: "Cat Paw Mania" from #2, "Wasabi Cupcakes" from #6 and "My Best Friends are Sweets" from #8.
* EvolvingCredits: After Cure Beat joins, the opening theme is also remixed to have more of a beat.
** The opening and second ending adds Cure Muse in episode 38. For the latter, Hummy had been dancing in her place until then, and is relocated in the final product.
* FaceHeelTurn: The Noise of Evil does this to whoever is wearing the strange headphones. [[spoiler:This includes Seiren and even Mephisto.]]
* FigureItOutYourself: The teaching method Dan Houjou uses (even on his own EIGHT YEAR OLD daughter!).
* FiveBadBand: Minor Land.
** BigBad: Mephisto [[spoiler:[[BrainwashedAndCrazy ...Or is he?]]]]
** TheDragon: Siren [[spoiler:(pre-HeelFaceTurn)]]
** TheBrute: Bassdrum
** EvilGenius: Baritone
** DarkChick: Falsetto
** [[spoiler:BiggerBad: Noise]]
* FoodPorn: Anything anyone from the Pastry Club (Kanade in particular) bakes might very well leave your mouth watering. Heck, a Japanese fan tried making the black spider cake from episode 4 in real life, and it came out pretty accurate.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Siren/Ellen's costume is a black cat CatGirl. Not that she didn't already give up her true identity in class...
** Also, [[spoiler:Ako is dressed as a princess in a yellow dress.]]
* FourManBand:
** TheHeroine: Hibiki/Cure Melody
** TheLancer[=/=]TheSmartGirl: Kanade/Cure Rhythm
** TheBigGirl[=/=]TheSmartGirl: [[spoiler:Ellen/Cure Beat]]
** TheChick[=/=]TagalongKid: [[spoiler:Ako/Cure Muse]]
* GottaCatchEmAll: The Notes of the Legendary Score.
* HalloweenEpisode: Episode 37, but it does have plot relevance. Besides it features Cure Muse's moves, there are also Bassdrum and Baritone's BalefulPolymorph and [[spoiler:Falsetto unsealing Noise from the stone]].
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: [some sort of onomatopoeia] "Episode Name" [[VerbalTic ~nya!]]
* IrisOut: This happens in Episode 2 when [[KindheartedCatLover Kanade]] shakes [[MentorMascot Hummy's]] paw for the first time.
* LampshadeHanging: Siren comments on how easily Kanade and Hibiki make up in Episode 2.
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to its predecessor, the stakes of the plot are much less lower than a straight up apocalypse. [[spoiler:So is the death toll.]]
* MagicMusic: Hibiki and Kanade themselves are the [[Pantheon/{{Music}} Goddesses]]!
* MagicSkirt: In episode 2, the girls were hanged upside-down from the tree, yet their Precure and school uniform's skirts stayed as if they were standing on the ground.
** Subverted with the Precure outfit, where their skirts are displaying MagicSkirt physics but their petticoats are actually some kind of puffy shorts.
* MeaningfulName / ThemeNaming: The first character in Hibiki and Kanade's surnames are the characters for North and South respectively, while Waon and Seika's have the characters for, respectively, West and East, which led to many fans guessing that they would become Cures later on (see LyingCreator on the Trivia page).
** Hibiki and Kanade's first names are also significant and fit with the musical theme of the series. The term "hibiki" means a sound, a ring, or an echo. Used as a verb, it can mean to resound/resonate. The term "kanade" means to play or perform, such as with a musical instrument.
** Ellen and Ako are named after '''Ele'''ctric and '''Acco'''ustic (as in, string instruments) respectively.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Taken to LensmanArmsRace levels. Melody and Rhythm gain ''three'' upgrades over the course of ten episodes: the Belltiers, Belltier Seperation, and Belltier Cross Rods. Then five episodes later Cure Beat joins, essentially acting as a fourth upgrade by joining in with their previous attacks.
** Trio the Minor get a villainous MidSeasonUpgrade in episode 26.
** Also subverted when the girls obtain the Healing Chest. Melody tries to use the Crescendo Tone's offered power-up but fails miserably at first because she can't handle it.
** And then [[spoiler:a fourth Cure, to no one's surprise, is added, and Mephisto gets an "upgrade", followed by Falsetto once he's defeated. LensmanArmsRace indeed.]]
* MonstersOfTheWeek: Negatone, created by corrupting the Notes and turning things in those said monsters.
* MythologyGag:
** In the beginning of episode 5, Cure Melody and Cure Rhythm smacking their faces together in a very similar way how [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Nagisa and Honoka did in episode 24]].
** In episode 30, the quizmaster Negatone asks Cure Rhythm and Cure Beat what "shiro" and "ao" means in English. Of course, it's because of their costume colors, but it's also a reference to [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Cure White's]] name; in [[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure Blue's]] case, it's an inverted example since he appears four seasons later after ''Suite''.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Both Noise and the Cures' final forms are based on birds. Also, Cure Melody's WorldOfCardboardSpeech for Noise is basically pointing him that they're fueled by the same source of power: happiness.]]
* OffModel: In episode 4, Seika, who normally is a bright blonde, [[http://pics.livejournal.com/kokoda_koji/pic/00brwz9q unexplainedly has her hair turn darker]]. This is later fixed in the Blu-Ray release.
** Siren is ''consistently'' OffModel when viewed from a distance of 10ft or greater.
** Episode 29 is made entirely by this. Really, even people who doesn't notice when the art animation gets worse will notice that the animation of said episode is '''BAD'''.
** Episode 47 also suffers from the same bad animation. It really hurts considering that it's the finale of the finale battle.
** Other similar bad animated episodes are episode 5, 20 and 38.
* OneWomanWail: The Melody of Happiness/Sorrow.
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Let the harmony of your heart echo!"
* PinkMeansFeminine: The initial flyer for the series went out of its way to point out that both mains wore pink in their Cure outfits, putting "girls' favourite color on full display".
* PoorCommunicationKills: Two ''at the same time'' in episode 6 -- while Hibiki's trying to stand up for Kanade's brother Souta on what he was doing, both she and Kanade ignore Hummy who has found a Note and is trying to tell them about it.
** This is also the reason we don't see Hibiki and Kanade get along in the first two episodes even though they are childhood friends. [[MentorMascot Hummy]] asks Hibiki why that is; and the latter responds that when they began middle school, Kanade was supposed to meet her at the third sakura tree from the school's entrance and never came. The misunderstanding came from the fact that [[spoiler: the school has ''two'' entrances lined up with sakura trees]]. [[spoiler: Both Hibiki and Kanade were waiting for each other at each entrance unaware of this fact]]. When they figure it out, they [[EasilyForgiven instantly forgive]] each other. [[TheDragon Siren]] responds to this with the {{Lampshade Hanging}} above.
* PunBasedTitle: ''Suite'' means "a group of related pieces of music or movements played in sequence." It sounds like ''sweet'', and as it happens, Kanade is in her school's pastry club and her family owns a pastry shop.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Hummy, the Fairy Tones, the notes from the Legendary Score...
* ShipTease: Episode 38 is absolutely ''loaded'' with [[PuppyLove Souta/Ako]] ship tease, although there's been small hints here and there beforehand like the previous episode..
* ShoutOut: Siren's feathery neon-colored outfit in episode 5 is one to the Brazilian carnival. Maybe done on purpose, since the Brazilian carnival was being celebrated in the week the episode aired. The "butterfly-like ribbon" on her chest is also a MythologyGag to ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''.
** Episode 30 has one to Satarakura Jr.'s game show dimension from episode 26 of ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.
*** And speaking of Gokaiger, when Hibiki dressed up as a pirate in episode 37, one too many Captain Marvelous jokes were made around the fandom.
** Melody's Precure Music Rondo takes tons of note from ''Anime/SailorMoon's'' Moon Tiara Action & Moon Healing Escalation.
** The show's theme is music and sound. The main character is called Hibiki. [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki You can see where this is going...]]
** The 3 rings formed from the Combination of Melody, Rhythm, and Beat's Precure Music Rondo are the same color and in the same order as the rings formed from [[Series/KamenRiderOOO the Scanning Charge of the default form of a certain Kamen Rider]].
* StealthPun: Hummy and Siren, the fairies that can sing the Melody of Happiness (or Sorrow), are cats. Typically, caterwauling is defined as particularly awful singing. Doubles as an IncrediblyLamePun.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: [[spoiler:Muse did it twice to Mephisto in episode 36. The Cures attempted this to Baritone and Bassdrum in episode 42, but failed as Falsetto quickly re-brainwashed them. And finally the Cures defeated Noise in this way, all while launching every single finishers they have.]]
* ThemeNaming: MusicalThemeNaming is all over the place, combined with LocationThemeNaming for Hibiki, Kanade, Waon and Seika.
* ThemeMusicPowerup: In episode 27. Bonus points for being a ThemeTuneCameo.
* TransformationSequence: In addition to the expected ones for the Cures, Trio the Minor get one when they upgrade in episode 26.
* TransformationTrinket: The Cure Modules.
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Backed up in episode 19 where Siren and the gang watch a ''video'' of the Cures transforming.
