Pretty Cure Old School Videos
is a Fan Fic
with an early home video companies thematic.
This fanfic has thus far been confirmed to feature examples of:
- Big Bad: EVA.
- Death by Sex: Implied to be the fate of several Red Shirts in the series, by newspaper headlines.
- Dragged into Drag: The males of Fotomat High and Burumu Junior High, as well as the females of Toshiba High. Granted, some of them are willing, but still!
- Good Costume Switch: Both Bara sisters have their costume color schemes changed upon their Heel Face Turns; also, Kuroko gets a complete redesign, while Tora merely has her costume made a bit more conservative and frilly.
- Heel-Face Turn: The Bara sisters.
- Leotard of Power: Kuroko as VCX.
- Loads and Loads of Characters: And those are just the Cures and their three groups!
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Bandou twins; especially evident in that while Meda wears blue Tights Under Shorts, her brother wears pink Tights Under Shorts. Also, Tora, who studies ballet and is never seen not wearing jean shorts except during swim classes (where she wears a "bike swimsuit"), and Kuroko, who is into adult videos and wears a leotard as her combat attire, serve as a Pink Tomboy, Blue Girly Girl dynamic.
- Meganekko: Usagi Arakawa, who retains his glasses in Cure form.
- Modesty Shorts: Worn by some of the Cures.
- Name's the Same: Who knew that if you shared a name with the sponsor of the Video Compact Cassette, you also shared your name with a Kamen Rider Double character? (Interestingly, Philip and Philip also share a VA, but that's another story.)
- Non-Uniform Uniform: Tora is definitely not going to wear a uniform if it's too feminine! She'll just play her own costume designer and slap her own jean shorts into each outfit. This is so prevalent that when going between regular and PE classes or between regular and ballet classes she just changes her top and footwear each time!
- Petite Pride: Tora.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Two of the NCB Group's Cures do this with their costumes; while both wear Tights With A Skirt, the girl's tights are pink, and the boy's tights are blue.
- Playboy Bunny: Cure U.S.A. That henshin costume designer is never going to let his name go...
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: The only way to tell the Bandou twins apart? The girl is wearing a hair dec. And given that their outfits are otherwise identical...
- Tights With A Skirt: Enforced; it's part of the uniform at some of the schools here, though at others the tights are optional. Also worn by Cure VCII and several of the Cures.
- Tights Under Shorts: Tora's wardrobe will always incorporate this, including her school uniform and ballet uniform. The Bandou twins also wear this in Cure form.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Several Cures.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Tora. All. The. Time.
