* ActorAllusion: [[Franchise/SailorMoon This isn't the first time]] that Creator/KateHiggins voiced a blue magical girl of the same [[MakingASplash element]] [[AnIcePerson family]] and the same [[TheSmartGirl brains of the team]].
* AnimeFirst
* IKnewIt:
** Since the revelation of ''Smile'''s original dub name "Gangnam Girls", many fans figured that this series would be the one dubbed, based on the description of the series.
** Many fans called out Episodes 10, 17 and 19 being removed due to their subjects, 19 especially.
* MissingEpisode: Episodes 10, 17 and 19 of ''Smile'' were removed from the ''Glitter Force'' dub. While 19 was obviously removed because of the topic of Yayoi's DisappearedDad, it's not quite known why 10 and 17 were, though 10 may have been removed due to focusing on Akane's resturant, which features Japanese cuisine (though they could have just labelled it as a Japanese resturant), and 17 was presumably due to the humour of the episode not translating well to international youth audiences.
* 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 [[Anime/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]].
* NoExportForYou: AvertedTrope! This is only the second Precure season to get an English dub, and with Creator/{{Netflix}} distributing it, and the recent worldwide expansion.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: When dubbed, you'll notice that there are lots of Franchise/{{Naruto}} veterans on board, four of the Glitter Force girls have them ([[Creator/LauraBailey Kushina]], [[Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey Ino]], [[Creator/DanielleJudovits Tenten]] and [[Creator/KateHiggins Sakura]])
* 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.
* SequelFirst: With exceptions of Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, parts of Latin America, Spain, and UK; Smile as it's ninth series hit daylights in a few countries like US, Brazil, and France as it's Saban adaption via Netflix.
* ShoutOut: Miyuki's frequent shouting of "KIAI DA!!!" is one to ''Anime/GenjiTsuushinAgedama''...for pretty much the same purpose
* 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).
** It doesn't help that in some International versions of ''Glitter Force'', Cure Sunny/Glitter Sunny is referred to as "Glitter Orange".
* TalkingToHimself: The Bad End Cures share their respective seiyuus with their counterparts.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Cure March was originally designed to be a purple Cure, and all the girls were going to have long hair.
** Before going with the name ''Glitter Force'', the series' English name went with the name "Gangnam Girls"
