The Remaining Gems on the Smile Pact
There's seven little gems in the transformation device and the town's name is translated as "Seven Prismatic Colors". And going with how each cure has an element, the purple cure may use darkness to be a contrast to Miyuki's light powers.
- Dark power is usually associated with evil, so probably not. Also, technically Cure Peace IS earth to an extent (she uses lightning, but lightning is a part of weather which affects the Earth.) A red Cure could have powers like Heart/Love, while a purple Cure could have something like Soul.
- Evidently, Cure Sunny's case may be similar to that of Cure Muse (who had a purple Fairy Tone and a yellow color scheme). She uses a Red Decor and the Smile Pact glows red during the transformation, but her overall image color is orange. There are three different warm colors on the pact (one of which belongs to Cure Sunny): yellow (Cure Peace), amber/gold, and red/orange. So either way, the Sixth Ranger Cures being purple and amber/gold is still legit.
- The element of Darkness worked for Sailor Saturn I believe. A shame they may not be able to do that in Pretty Cure to explain that Dark Is Not Evil.
- Ultimately jossed.
- Sunny's Cure Decor is orange...but the light is red.
- In the title eyecatch, Sunny holds a red and orange balloon.
- There are 7 lights in the Smile Pact (which fits with the rainbow theme), and it's the red one that glows when she transforms. The unaccounted for ones are purple and orange(/gold?).
Cure Sunny will have a seperate exclusive Super Mode
There. Problem solved.
The two remaining gems on the Smile Pact represent combo attacks.
For instance, Cure Happy (Pink) + Cure Beauty (Blue) = Purple. Cure Sunny (Red/Orange) + Cure Peace (Yellow) = Amber/Gold.
There will not be any new Cures joining the main five...
...and all supposed hints otherwise are just Toei being Trolls
- Surprisingly, this appears to be the most likely theory.
- And has now been confirmed.
Similar to what has happened with the Quirky Miniboss Squads
from Heartcatch and Suite, blended with Cure Passion and Cure Beat's introductions in Fresh and Suite.
Miyuki CHOOSE who will be a Pretty Cure, the sixth and seventh will also be chosen for her, independent of who it will be, include Majorina
With all the mythology gags abound this wouldn't be to much of a stretch.
- Jossed. Though what really happened (Candy becoming the new queen of Märchenland and the Barrier Maiden Royale Candy) is pretty close.
Two new Cures will appear during the 30s episodes.
Because the "big friggin' group finisher" that usually appears at this point already showed up, and there's no need for another.
- Jossed. There will be another group attack — an upgraded version of Rainbow Burst, as if that alone wasn't powerful enough — at that point.
Not as true Cures, but something to help them fight Pierrot in the final battle, like in Splash Star or Fresh, additional help for the Cures. Likely for Candy, as the series been building up she's important, and she's been giving some kind of power for the Cures since day one.
The Smile Cures' Super Modes
will have "Ultra" tacked in before their Cure names (such as Ultra Cure Happy) as a reference to Miyuki's Catch Phrase
They already did "Super" with Yes! Pretty Cure 5
(first season) and HeartCatch Pretty Cure!
- Ultimately confirmed; while the standard Super Modes' names replace "Cure" with "Princess", their final episode Super Modes are called Ultra forms instead.
The reason is that many anime viewers last year just watched the deconstruction Puella Magi Madoka Magica
, which picked apart many essential Magical Girl
tropes. Thus, this year Toei will do what Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
did for the Humongous Mecha
genre and make Smile Pretty Cure
than any of their past seasons.
Midway during Smile Pretty Cure!
, Reika/Cure Beauty will fall in love with a monster or a villain.
Fairy tale thematic, "Beauty and the Beast
- He won't appear until episode 22 at the earliest. Refer to the countdown clock of doom shown during each episode when the villain appears. The appearance delay means he's more likely to be the real Big Bad.
- Sabaku and Mephisto appeared much earlier in their respective seasons of Heart Catch Pretty Cure and Suite Pretty Cure ♪.
- When he appears in episode 23, he is killed by Pretty Cure Rainbow Burst five minutes later... leaving behind a core that is found by his subordinates. So technically he still has a chance of being the Final Boss.
- Ultimately confirmed.
Candy is the sealed Queen of Märchenland.
- Hence why she knows exactly who the Precures are when they transform and their powers and her knowledge about the Cure Decor. Like a similar situation to Kerberos from Cardcaptor Sakura, Candy is in a "little" form and her true form as the Queen can only be released by gathering the Decor, the pieces of her power.
- Jossed. An upcoming episode summary reveals she's the Miracle Jewel.
- Actually, somewhat confirmed. The Miracle Jewel is an egg that opens forth to transform Candy into the next Queen of Märchenland once the Precures gather all the Decor together.
Wolfrun is in fact the Big Bad Wolf
, as opposed to just an analogue.
Similarly, Majorina is the Wicked Witch
from the Snow White story (which is further supported in episode 5) and Akaoni is one of the onis
from the story of Momotaro. Their names are merely codenames.
- Mostly Confirmed. As seen in Episode 45, they are Märchenland's fairy equivalents, although in Majorina's case it appears she might be from another story.
Candy is the daughter of the sealed Queen of Märchenland.
Which would make her a princess
and the reason why she was specifcally sent to earth in order to find the cures.It could be a reason why she knows so much about Cure Decor because who wouldn't know a lot about their mother.
- Then I suppose this would make her older brother Pop a prince and possibly the rightful heir to the throne.
- Unless, of course, Marchenland is a matriarchal society. Which would make Candy the heir in this case.
It's the reason why people lose hope when the enemy attacks, because there's nothing they can do to stop it and they give up.
Someone will. You just know it.
There will be an appearance of a Mitaro Hoshizora later on.
And suddenly Akane's joke would make a lot more sense.
Though maybe he would be a distant cousin of Miyuki's rather than her brother. Alternately, in a way similar to what happened to Tsubomi
's mother Mizuki, Miyuki's mother Ikuyo will become pregnant at some point, and at the end of the season will give birth to a boy, and Miyuki, remembering Akane's joke
, will name him Mitaro.
- With the birth of Nao's youngest sibling, it appears less likely, as they've already used that particular plot. Still not impossible yet.
What with the emphasis on putting spirit/energy into the pact, it makes sense that it's storing it for more power later.
- Jossed. The upgrades come from the Pegasus and (later) Royal Clock. Although they do get slightly stronger versions of their main attacks during their individual focus episodes late in the season.
Joker is/will be a Bigger Bad than Pierrot.
Miyuki was lying about having a crush on Peter Pan.
She only said that so the other Cures would quit bugging her about the subject matter. In reality, she's more interested in friendship than romance.
- If we go by the way she reacted to him in the 3DS game opening, then this is jossed.
Let's look at the archetypical Big Bad Wolf
- The Big Bad Wolf is always alone. He has no pack. Wolf packs are not motley crews of unrelated individuals, they're families consisting of a breeding pair and their children. We think of the "lone wolf" as a cool individual whose isolation is voluntary. But in reality, lone wolves are alone because either their pack is dead or because the pack was so antagonistic towards the wolf that it decided that going it alone and risking starvation was better.
- TL;DR: The Big Bad Wolf's family is either dead, or was so abusive that he ran away.
- The Big Bad Wolf does not hunt normally. He cannot hunt normally, because wolves hunt in packs, and The Big Bad Wolf has no pack. Without his pack to help him down large prey, he had to hunt smaller prey. But smaller prey is also quicker and harder to catch, and even if the hunt is successful, the meat from a rabbit is barely worth the energy sunk into chasing it. Combine this with the fact that not every day is going to end with a successful hunt, and The Big Bad Wolf will quickly start starving. In this case, the only reliable, plentiful source of food is human livestock. This will quickly draw the ire of humans.
- TL;DR: The only reason The Big Bad Wolf comes into conflict with humans is because he's starving to death.
- The Big Bad Wolf eats humans. Wolves only prey on humans when they're very desperate and hungry. Maybe The Big Bad Wolf got injured by a human on a failed livestock raid, and now he cannot chase even his normal prey. Humans, though, have no fangs or claws, and cannot run very fast. If The Big Bad Wolf can get an unarmed human alone, they're easy prey. This is also highly risky, since if he kills even one human, the nearest human settlement will burn the forest down just to get vengeance. He would not try to eat humans unless he was at the end of his rope.
- TL;DR: The Big Bad Wolf has done bad things because he desperately wants to live.
- The Big Bad Wolf never wins. With the exception of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf", all fairy tales starring The Big Bad Wolf end with the wolf losing. Details vary (run away in humiliation; get drowned in a river, get your stomach cut open and filled with rocks), but it's always a Downer Ending for the wolf.
- TL;DR: Wolves don't get happy endings, because "happy ending for wolves" and "happy ending for everyone else" are mutually exclusive.
There's a high possibility that Wolfrun had a tremendously crappy life
, and his bad attitude
is due to him having crossed the Despair Event Horizon
a looong time ago.
- Appears to be confirmed, not just for Wolfrun, but all three generals.
- Considering he'll probably debut around episode 22, and Pretty Cure averages 49 episodes, there will most likely be another story arc and villain.
will show up in the series proper either as one of the two we've been teased about or an 8th ranger.
- Because Echo used the Smile system to henshin in the movie.
Just putting two and two together here since Yayoi's mother works for Fairy Drop.
Joker will start supplying Yellow Noses for the others to create Akanbes with.
We have seen that Joker supplies the noses for the Akanbes. Joker has three tassels on his hat, each with a ball that strongly resembles the noses used for Akanbes. Since we already have Red and Blue, it easily follows that a Yellow version will appear.
This leads us straight to:
The Yellow Noses will be what prompts the Cures to gain their Princess forms.
Rather than the awakening of Pierrot. Either that or...
The Yellow Noses will trigger the episode thirty-something group finisher.
- All three are half-confirmed, half-jossed. A yellow-nosed Akanbe appears in episode 23, but it's killed off by Happy Shower. Joker does use another one later as well, but he has not as of yet given a yellow one to the others. The relation to the tassels on his hat is also demonstrated, as he pulled the yellow nose directly from his hat the second time.
Joker is Pierrot
... and is using the other three to regain his powers. He gave the Blue noses in order to slow the revival of the Queen, but his last Red Nose will be used up in episode 22 in a gambit to regain his powers before the Queen can revive.
- Appears to be jossed for now. In episode 21, he steals the last Décor, plus the Décor Décolle and Candy, before the Queen can be revived.
There is another layer to the Décor Décolle
There is a distinct line running down the middle of the Décor Décolle. Once the final Décor is placed on the visible layer, this layer will separate along the line and expose another set of slots for Décors to go.
- Mostly jossed. It does open up along that line, but provides an alternate activation point for the Décors, as demonstrated by Candy in Episode 30. Also demonstrated as early as episode 7's opening, when the cell phone decor is used to contact Pop.
- Kill off the other three agents to use their energy for either himself or Pierrot.
- End up fusing with Pierrot when he's near-death from the Precure Princess Forms, and have to constantly find more Bad Energy to keep his new powers.
- Both are jossed. For now.
- And now the second one is half-confirmed. He turns himself into Bad End Paint to merge with Pierrot and revive him in the final battle. Though it's after having been backed into a corner, not near-death.
A new villain group will appear in the second half.
Toei did it in Tensou Sentai Goseiger
, why not?
Pop will become part of the main cast in the second half.
Cure Happy's movie-exclusive power-up will eventually appear in the series proper and affect the other Cures as well.
Much like Cure Angel
and the Crescendo Modes
Aya Ikeda and Hitomi Yoshida will make a cameo in one episode.
- Jossed. Candy is the Miracle Jewel.
Hyper Akanbe are not the final iteration...
Rather, once the Hyper Akanbe are all dealt with, they'll be replaced by Ultimate Akanbe (or somesuch), combining the "Two Plot Coupon
" method of making Super Akanbe with the "merged villian" method of the Hyper Akanbe. Only when all of them
are defeated will the bad guys finally have permission to die...
With different visuals (of course), and the dance moves modified to allude to Rainbow Burst (they do ride equines while doing it after all...). Of course, there's a 99% chance that this may never happen (the most likely option would be "Mankai Smile" or a remix of it), and even if it did they would probably have to get Psy's permission to do it... It's still a cute mental image, though.
- Indeed it won't happen. "Mankai Smile" again.
- Yayoi's mother works for Fairy Drop and mentions Erika's mother. Even more, episode 34 has magazines bearing pictures from the fashion show and they show Yuri, Itsuki and Tsubomi (along with Cobraja) in the pictures clearly.
- Umm, no, the fashion show pics showed different people. If you were talking about the ones from kokoda_koji's review on the Pretty Cure Livejournal community, these were photoshopped.
Joker is closely-related to Pierrot, possibly his son.
- Pierrot's design seems to be based on a clown. Joker is the only one of the generals who has a clown-like (or rather a harlequin) design? Coincidence? I think not.
Like the three previous seasons
, Wolfrun, Akaoni and Majorina will be saved from the Cures and lived happily ever after.
All fairies in Märchenland are based on a story. Both involve a young future queen
who comes to Earth to learn and grow by being around 5 humans with special powers. They are helped by the current queen at various points and work together to remove a dark threat against their homeland. Both go through a Plot-Relevant Age-Up
to help achieve this goal. They even share the same voice actress.
Apart from the two having the same voice actress
, Reika seems to have a mirror motif associated with her (two of her character episodes involve her fighting a mirror Akanbe and her character song translates to "Your Mirror"), which can relate with the movie that Dark Cure Dream appears in. Cure Happy and Cure Dream also have similar personalities and the same color, so maybe the reason Reika is spying on Miyuki in the early episodes are because she reminds her of Nozomi.
