This page lists tropes that describe the Jewelpet species in general. The individual characters have been placed into separate pages according to their magical attribute: '''[[Characters/JewelpetMagicalRedJewelpets Red]]''', '''[[Characters/JewelpetMagicalGreenJewelpets Green]]''', '''[[Characters/JewelpetMagicalBlueJewelpets Blue]]''' and '''[[Characters/JewelpetMagicalBlackJewelpets Black]]'''.

The '''Jewelpets''' are magical creatures that are named after birthstones and jewels. They have the mineral they're named after as their eyes, which are used to cast their own brand of magic, the Jewel Flash. They live in a mystical place called Jewel Land, attending a school to learn more about magic along with their human partners. The Jewelpets' magic is divided into two categories: normal (or light) magic and forbidden dark magic.

This page also contains the Sweetspet characters, which you can find further below.

Beware of spoilers.

[[Characters/{{Jewelpet}} Back to the main character page.]] The main article can be found [[Franchise/{{Jewelpet}} here]].
----
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Each Jewelpet wears accessories, even the boys.
* AllThereInTheManual: It's easy enough to know what animal each Jewelpet is, but the specific breed (e.g. Persian, Welsh Corgi...) is never stated in-universe.
** This also applies to the jewels that they represent. With the exception of the first series, and the main cast in following ones, you have to guess their jewels from their names (or check the Internet), because they'll probably never state them.
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:The finales of the first series, ''Sunshine'' and ''Kira Deco'' have all the Jewelpets combining their powers to defeat the great evil.]]
* AlwaysLawfulGood: Jewelpets are this in the toys' universe. Also in ''Twinkle'', as Jewelina created them from the good traits of mankind and to help them (leading to the implication that Diana came out with the potential for evil because she was man-made).
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Less than you'd think. Most pets are their real life colours.
* BadassAdorable: Small, adorable animals who have defeated ''God herself''.
* BadassCape: Jewelpets get one called a Jewel Cloak when they become master magicians.
* BadassCrew: Just the team of six mascots already has some of the most powerful pets in the franchise.
* BishonenLine: ''Magical Change''. Even totally inept Jewelpets can cast super-powerful magic in their human forms.
* BondCreatures: Jewelpets bond with humans to release their true power.
* BunniesForCuteness: Ruby, Luea, Luna, Io and the non-canon Lollip.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Rabbit Jewelpets eat meat. Likewise, carnivorous species of Jewelpets can eat veggies because it's [[ArtisticLicenseBiology good for their health]].
* CastingAShadow: While Jewelpets usually deal in light-based magic, in some continuities there is the odd Jewelpet capable of casting Dark Magic. S/he is always evil.
* ColorCodedWizardry: Depending on the eye color, each Jewelpet is assigned its respective magical attribute.
** Red, pink, yellow, orange and brown eyes - [[PlayingWithFire Magical]] [[HotBlooded Red]]
** Green, cyan, blue eyes - [[GreenThumb Magical]] [[TransformationIsAFreeAction Green]]
** Blue, violet, pink, green eyes - [[MakingASplash Magical]] [[MindOverMatter Blue]]
** Black, silver, grey, blue eyes - [[TheSacredDarkness Magical]] [[DarkIsNotEvil Black]]
* CoolDown: In ''Sunshine'', Jewelpets turn into giant versions of their Jewel Charms right after casting a spell. Whether they can move in this form or not seems to be DependingOnTheWriter and RuleOfFunny.
* CreationMyth: Depends on the season. In the first series, a magician brought them to life using jewels; in ''Twinkle'', Jewelina created them from the good traits of humanity; in ''Kira Deco'', Jewelina created them using the Mirror Ball.
* CuteKitten: Garnet, Sango, Alex, Tour, Kaiya, Lapis, Diana and Dian.
* CuteWitch: Cute animals who trade in magic.
* DarkIsEvil: If there's a Jewelpet villain, there's a very good chance it's going a Magical Black one. Dian and Diana in the first series, Diana in ''Twinkle'', King in ''Sunshine'' (though he's largely inconsequential), Coal and Dian in ''Kira Deco'', Luea in ''Lady''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: ''Normally'', Magical Black Jewelpets, who tend to have dark color schemes besides dark eyes, are just as good as any other Jewelpet.
* DemotedToExtra: The Jewelpets in general get this treatment in the OVA (yes, even protagonist/mascot Ruby - she has like 4 minutes of screentime). This is justified, because the OVA's plot revolves around [[spoiler:Alma]] adapting to the human world, and Akari and friends aren't supposed to get involved with magic anymore.
* DogsAreDumb: Averted. Most canine Jewelpets show average (in human standards) intelligence. Then there's dogs like Sapphie, the resident genius, Yuku, the Jewelpet of Knowledge, and Prase, the Jewelpet of Studying.
* ElementalPowers: Refer to above. Only used in the toys; even then, averted for Magical Black Jewelpets.
* {{Familiar}}: All of the pets were created to accompany mages in training.
* FiveBadBand: In the first series, Dian is the BigBad, Diana is TheDragon, Lapis is the EvilGenius, King is the DarkChick, and whatever Jewel Eight member Dian has summoned for the week is TheBrute.
* FingerlessHands: None of the Jewelpets have visible fingers, but they can still hold and write with pencils, without any magical aid, for example.
* FlyingBroomstick: How they get around in the first series and the movie.
* FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter: Jewelpets really only go on four legs if they're in a rush. Angela is one of the few who prefer using four legs.
** RunningOnAllFours
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble:
** From ''Twinkle'' to ''Happiness'', Ruby is the optimist, Garnet is the cynic, Sapphie is the realist, Labra and Angela are apathetics, and Rosa is the conflicted.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** Dian's group in the first series. Dian is sanguine, Diana is choleric, Lapis is melancholic and King is phlegmatic.
** The four main Jewelpets in ''Lady''. Ruby is sanguine, Garnet is choleric, Sapphie is phlegmatic and Luea is melancholic. This is the exact configuration of their respective partners, too.
** In ''Magical Change'' it's Ruby as the sanguine, Labra as the choleric, Luna as the melancholic, and Larimar as the phlegmatic.
* FreudianTrio: Ruby-Garnet-Sapphie. Ruby is the Id; fun-loving, irresponsible, and pretty much lets herself be driven by her gut instincts, for better or for worse. Garnet is the Superego with some Id tendencies; she often chastises and mocks Ruby for her erratic behavior, despite the fact that she's also prone (just perhaps not as much) to let her emotions drive her actions. Sapphie is the Ego; she has a thoughtful and reasonable personality, and often comes up with the best solution to a problem.
* FunSize: They're all fit to be carried in your arms without much hassle.
* GreekChorus: In the first half of ''Kira Deco'', several episodes are commented on by some minor Jewelpet character.
* HumanityEnsues: They can turn into humans in ''Magical Change''.
* {{Immortality}}: Possibly. If a Jewelpet dies, it just goes back to being a Jewel Charm and can be revived with spells, without the Jewelpet losing his/her personality or memories in the process.
* LightEmUp: All Jewelpets' magic is light-powered.
* MagicalEye: Their magic comes from their eyes, called Jewel Eyes.
* MagicMisfire: Happens rather frequently across several characters as the primary source of humour in the anime.
* MeaningfulName: They all represent a certain mineral, which they are named after and have for eyes. King is the exception.
* MentorMascot: In ''Lady'', the pets are called Mentors (in English), and their job is to guide their human to become a proper Lady.
* MorphicResonance: Their human forms in ''Magical Change'', mostly having to do with their color schemes.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: All of the Jewelpets. Labra escalates this UpToEleven!
* PowerFloats: In ''Lady'' and ''Magical Change'', the Jewelpets get around on floating balls.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: In ''Sunshine'', their magic seems to draw power from the sun, contrasting the cold theme that Dark Magic has in this season.
* PowerTrio: Ruby, Garnet and Sapphie originally. Other trios were formed each season (Kaiya, Ryl and Amelie in ''Twinkle'' for example).
* PreciousPuppy: Sapphie, Yuku, Topaz, Kohaku, Peridot, Milky, Nephrite, Chite, Prase, Kris, and King.
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: The Jewel Eight from the first series.
* Really700YearsOld: An argument between Milky and Luna in episode 10 of ''Twinkle'' implies that the Jewelpets can live to or are hundreds of years old.
* RedIsHeroic: There's a reason the class with the most Jewelpets is Magical Red. There's also a reason half of the main Jewelpets are Magical Red, whereas all the other classes have a single representative.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: There are no reptilian Jewelpets (not yet, anyway) because of this trope. Actually, out of over 40 Jewelpets, only 3 are non-mammals (Charotte, Rin, Aqua), probably because [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute mammals are cuter]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: All the Jewelpets, but Ruby steals the spotlight. Labra stands out as well, for being a baby.
* RockThemeNaming: Every pet is named after a type of mineral and they have said mineral as their eyes. King, of onyx, is the exception.
* SatelliteCharacter: The Jewelpets in the first series and ''Twinkle'' are largely driven by wanting to help their human partners become better people. Sure, they have distinct personalities, but they generally don't have dreams or things they want for themselves. Then ''[[AvertedTrope Sunshine]]'' came along.
* SleepModeSize: The function of their Jewel Charm forms in the first series.
* SphereFactor: In ''Lady'' and ''Magical Change'', the Jewelpets get around on floating balls.
* TalkingAnimal: Most of them speak perfectly fine, but depending on the season, a few Jewelpets might be mute or have some speech impediment, either for drama or comedy or both.
* TaremeEyes: The majority of the cast, [[TsurimeEyes with a few exceptions, usually feline]].
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Female Jewelpets (and Sweetspets) have pronounced eyelashes, while males do not.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Several of the more childish Jewelpets, such as Ruby and Labra, refer to themselves in this way.
* ThreePlusTwo: While the mascots have ballooned to six, the ones to get the most focus and action are still the original trio of Ruby, Garnet and Sapphie.
** Subverted in the last battle of ''Sunshine'', where [[spoiler:Garnet and Sapphie are soundly defeated and Labra and Angela fill in for them.]]
** Averted in ''Magical Change'', where Garnet and Sapphie have been DemotedToExtra and the mascot roles are filled by Larimar, Luna and Labra. And sometimes Luea, making it a case of Four Plus One with different characters for this season.
* ToBeAMaster: Most of the franchise is about training the Jewelpets so they become full-fledged magicians.
* TrueBlueFemininity: Magical Blue has far more females than males (9 to 3 to be more specific), whereas the rest of the eye classes are more or less even in their gender ratio (males outnumber females by 1 in Green and Black, while Red is even if the non-canon Lollip is excluded).
* VagueAge: Jewelpets have no determined age. Because they have human-like personalities we can deduce that their maturity is that of teenagers/young adults (14-24 years). The only Jewelpet that subverts this trope is Labra since she is always written as a baby.
** WordOfGod even stated that they can't pinpoint their exact age.
* VicariouslyAmbitious:
** In ''Twinkle'', Jewelpets have to find a human partner so they can attend the Magic Academy and hopefully get into the Jewel Star Grand Prix at the end of the year. They're very serious about this, but the title of Jewel Star and the right to the fulfilment of three wishes is reserved only for the human.
** In ''Lady'', Jewelpets are known as Mentors and dedicate themselves to guiding their chosen Petit Ladies through their studies to become proper ladies, but they don't really share in the spoils when the Petit Ladies graduate to become higher Ladies or even Lady Jewel. Though it's implied that being a Mentor is the most prestigious job for a Jewelpet, so there's that.

[[folder:Sweetspets]]
The '''Sweetspets''' are magical pets named after sweets. They are usually present in Jewel Land during the holidays, performing their role to spread love and joy each Christmas. They live in a kingdom named Sweetsland, which is themed after sweets and desserts.

!!All Sweetspets have these tropes in common:
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Like Jewelpets, they wear accessories.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Some of them come in impossible colors; Sakuran is a pink bear, for example.
* BanOnMagic: They refuse to use magic to make sweets in the movie.
* BodyHorror: Averted. No, it's not horrible that they can rip off their limbs and feed them to someone.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: They're tiny and uniformly adorable animals.
* SupremeChef: The Sweetspets are awesome cooks, as seen with the feast in ''Sunshine'', the offerings they make to the heavens in ''Kira Deco'', and their huge cake for Princess Mana's birthday in the movie.
