Playing With / Sunny Sunflower Disposition

Basic Trope: Sunflower as a symbol of energy and happiness.
  • Straight: Magical Girl Heartropea is a Genki Girl, has The Power of the Sun, and has Sunflower as her Flower Motifs.
  • Exaggerated: Whenever Heartropea use her power, Sunflowers bloom as far as the eye can see.
  • Downplayed: ???
  • Justified: There are really no other flower fitting Heartropea's personality.
  • Inverted: The Big Bad Queen Darke has dark powers and has black roses as her Flower Motifs.
  • Subverted: Sunflower is associated with Heartropea due to her power, but she favors lilies in mundane life.
  • Double Subverted: A few episodes later Momotsuki joins her fight versus Queen Darke's dark kingdom, carrying lily symbolism with her. To make herself unique, Heartropea changes her personal flower to Sunflower.
  • Parodied: Heartropea uses weaponized Sunflowers.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: No characters are associated with Sunflowers.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "Your garden of sunflowers fits you well."
  • Invoked: A character associates herself with Sunflowers because she wants to be a cheerful person, like those anime girls.
  • Exploited: A character associates herself with Sunflowers because she wants to fool others into thinking that she is a cheerful person.
  • Defied: Sunny Heartropea is associated with Chrysanthemum instead of Sunflower.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: There is a character named Himawari (TL Note: Himawari means Sunflower). She was named so because her big sister(s) died in infancy, and her mother wants her to be strong and cheerful. Well, she is, except that she's faking it because 1) she is actually a quiet girl, and 2) she only wants to make her mother happy. Except that her mother can't really get over her children's death, and thus rarely smiles. This in turn makes Himawari hates her name and Sunflowers in general. She regularly pulls out Sunflowers she grows herself and rips them to bits to vent her frustrations.
  • Reconstructed: After the Sunflower Fairies appears and tell her how they love her, she stops hating the Sunflowers and sincerely make them part of her image.
