* CastingGag / HilariousInHindsight: The film director Fukasawa from Episode 33 is voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi. The movie he directed has the edo era as its theme. The villains [[FutariWaPrettyCureMaxHeart Uraganos]] and [[YesPrettyCure5 Bunbee]] appear at edo-themed movie sets (the former appears even in a edo-themed theatre play, later) and both of them are voiced by Wataru Takagi.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Miyuki [[Creator/MisatoFukuen is]] [[Manga/RosarioToVampire Kurumu Kurono]], [[Anime/StrikeWitches Yoshika Miyafuji]], [[Manga/SoulEater Eruka Frog]] and [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Mijumaru]].
** Yayoi [[HisakoKanemoto is]] [[Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume Ika Musume]] ([[VerbalTic de geso]]) and [[LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuka Maelstrom]];
** Nao [[Creator/MarinaInoue is]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko Littner]], [[LightNovel/{{Kampfer}} Natsuru Seno]], [[Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead Rei Miyamoto]], [[Manga/SkipBeat Kyoko Mogami]], and [[Manga/MariaHolic Matsurika]];
** Reika [[Creator/ChinamiNishimura is]] [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Dark Cure Dream]], [[Manga/MagicKnightRayearth Lady Aska]], [[Anime/UFOPrincessValkyrie Hydra]] and [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Officer Junsa]];
** Candy [[Creator/IkueOtani is]] [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]], [[Anime/OjamajoDoremi Hana-chan]], [[Manga/ZatchBell Gash Bell]], [[Manga/OnePiece Tony Tony Chopper]], [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Apple Bloom]], and [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Dot.]]
** Pop [[Creator/DaisukeSakaguchi is]] [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Uso Ewin]], [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Shinpachi Shimura]] and [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Zhang Fei's hot son, Zhang Bao]].... [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} And a toilet seat cover.]]
** Miyuki's and Akane's fathers are, respectively, [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Momotaros and Kintaros]].
** Yayoi's mother is [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Ayumi Momozono]] as well as [[Manga/WeddingPeach Momoko Hanasaki]].
** Nao's mother is former MagicalGirl [[Anime/SailorMoon Sailor Jupiter]].
** Reika's grandfather is [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Belzei Gertrud]], [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Moebius]] and [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sandaime Tsuchikage Oonoki]].
** To those who saw episode 23 live when it first aired, did [[Creator/TesshoGenda Pierrot]] sound familiar to you? That's because you've probably heard him as [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters Gorisaki Banana]] exactly one hour prior.
** Another one related to Bad End Kingdom: Akaoni and Majorina are the Japanese versions of, respectively, [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends Binky the Clown]] and [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Babs Bunny]].
** Wolfrun is the [[Manga/{{Bakuman}} super professional manga assistant Nakai]].
** Joker is the Japanese versions of [[Disney/TheLionKing Timon,]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime Petrie,]] and [[CrossdressingVoices Ms]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Thumbelina}} Fieldmouse.]]
* NamesTheSame:
** It's not like there weren't any [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Miyuki]]s or [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Akane]]s in ''Anime/PrettyCure'' before...
*** There is also a Akane Hino in the [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster Cinderella Girls]] series.
** Yayoi/Cure Peace also shares her name with [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster a certain poor Idol]].
** And due to the kanji on her last name being different (日 as opposed to 火), Akane/Cure Sunny is definitely not related to [[Franchise/SailorMoon Rei Hino]] or [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Eiji Hino]]. Same for Nao/Cure March and [[TokyoMewMew Retasu Midorikawa]] even though in their case the kanji are the same -- though the franchise does have a [[YesPrettyCure5 Retasu expy]]...
** The villain Joker shares his name with a [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker mad clown of Gotham]] as well as one half of Series/KamenRiderDouble. The latter coincidence eventually led to fanartists on Pixiv [[CrackPairing shipping him with Nao]] -- the [[WindIsGreen green-clad]] [[BlowYouAway wind-elemental]] Cure -- [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight despite the fact that they barely even interact]].
** Reika and her grandfather's seiyuus share the same surname [[Creator/ChinamiNishimura Nishi]][[TomomichiNishimura mura]].
* PlayingAgainstType: The majority of Creator/ChinamiNishimura's characters are... let's just say [[GenkiGirl always have a hyperactive element with them]]. Reika is instead very calm and calculated.
** Actor Yūji Mitsuya tends to play comic relief characters, or the young and cute hero. Here, he's the thoroughly evil Joker.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMMQ3dedJtY Don't Give Up on Dreams]] sounds like ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LZcMv0H1bI main theme]], doesn't it?
* TeasingCreator: Is Cure Sunny orange or red? Most would say the former, but there are some things that suggest the latter:
** The Smile Pact glows the same color as the Cure Decor that is inserted. Although Cure Sunny is orange, Akane's Cure Decor is red, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dXL2D3B3gL8 as is the light that comes from the Pact when it's used]].
** [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyyfweibj71qbckot.jpg This screenshot]] of the opening title screen shows her holding both an orange and a red balloon (the other girls carry their own colors).
* TalkingToHimself: The Bad End Cures share their respective seiyuus with their counterparts.
* TropePantheon: Miyuki's in the House of Narrative, Yayoi's in the House of Emotion, and Reika's in the House of Philosophy.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Cure March was originally designed to be a purple Cure, and all the girls were going to have long hair.
