* BaseBreaker: Ayumi.
* FailOSuckyName: The [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch]] BigBad of ''DX 2'' is... Bottom. [[HehHehYouSaidX *snerk*]]
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: ''[=DX3=]'''s climax brings the Cures one last chance to transform and save the world at the cost of never being able to see their mascot friends again. Seeing as how the movie was released towards the beginning of ''[[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Suite]]'', there was no way they'd permanently lock away the Cures' ability to transform.
* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Seriously, why were these 70 minutes each? There could have been even more ass-kicking!
** The Zakenna airplane. Which Black and White promptly kick into the distance (while said plane is still several hundred feet up)
** For most of the battle sequences, each team only fought strategically alongside their respective teammates, and "mixed combat" was more of a side-effect... until Cure Dream and Cure Bloom kick an Uzainaa butt TOGETHER! (While Egret and the rest of the Yes-Cures are busy surviving.) The power of earth and dreams! UNITED!!
** Milky Rose punching the ground and leaving a LARGE crater for the Big Bad to slip in.
*** In the sequel, she briefly goes into mascot form to dodge an attack ''and'' ''roundhouse sucker punch'' her opponent back
** In the third movie, when everyone ran off to make space on the Whack-A-Monster, Cure Moonlight just stood there unfazed like a complete {{Badass}} before she whacks the monsters singlehandedly and inspiring the rest of the Cures to get on whacking (lots of monsters eventually).
** In New Stage 2, after Cure March attempts a March Shoot at the BigBad who simply dodges it and gloats how it's direct and lacks technique, Cure March proceeds to do a MacrossMissileMassacre version of her attack after saying "I'll give you all the direct attacks you want!"
* {{Narm}}: the epilogue of the third movie was supposed to be serious but ended up being happy instead.
** The ending credits too. It was supposed to be really sad, but the happy ending music kind of ruin the mood.
* 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.
* OneSceneWonder: Fans of the {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s of the franchise seem to cling at TheCameo of their favorites, but nothing seems to surpass the popularity of [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Seika]] donning ElegantGothicLolita in ''New Stage 2''.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The teams are seen interacting for some of the sequel (most notably the Heartcatch and Fresh teams), which is an improvement over the {{Stealth Hi Bye}}s of the first movie. However, it's ''only'' those two teams that really interact for more than a few minutes, so mileage will vary.
* TheScrappy: Cure Echo is disliked among a group of fans for taking away focus from the other cures for the majority of the 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. Though to be fair, it's not like giving the other cures more screentime will improve the movie's quality in any way.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: There are a few fans, spoiled by the high-octane action of the ''DX'' movies, that see ''New Stage'''s OriginalCharacter focus to be an annoyance.
* TearJerker: The end of the third movie.
* ToughActToFollow: ''[=DX3=]'' delivered so much, be it actions, speaking parts, sweet, awesome and sad moments that the ''New Stage'' movies, while pretty good on their own, felt a little lacking when compared to the ''DX'' ones.
* 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.
