Fan Nickname: Hibiki and Kanade were affectionately dubbed "Nagisa and Honoka 3.0" by the fanbase at first. Said fanbase later came up with "Hibicake and Kanabake" for the duo, "Mephistroll" for Mephisto, "Man Rin" for Hibiki's father Dan due to his hairstyle, and "Cure Samba" for Ellen's Brazillian carnival-inspired getup from episode 5.
Lying Creator: Early on, Toei leaked a blurry picture of two new Cures: Cure Beat ("Uta Nishio", with a different design from the one that eventually appeared in the series proper) and Cure Symphony ("Koto Toudou"). Speculation ran wild over the picture, with a good proportion of the fanbase coming to the conclusion- based on visual similarities, character roles and Theme Naming- that secondary characters Waon Nishijima and Seika Higashiyama would become the two Sixth Rangers of the series. It turned out to be a joke by the production staff, presumably less-than-pleased when a similarly blurry picture spoiled the identity of Cure Sunshine roughly one year prior.
