YMMV tropes appearing throughout the entire Pretty Cure
- Base Breaker: Suite Pretty Cure ♪, and to a lesser extent Yes! Pretty Cure 5 (especially its second season). Smile Pretty Cure! also managed to divide a few fans.
- Even DokiDoki! Precure is one, though not quite as badly as the aforementioned series. It's either the best season, a decent season that was too ambitious for its own good, or a confusing Mary Sue-fest.
- Complete Monster: Gohyaan, Kawarino, the Director of Eternal, and Joker. See their respective pages for details.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: See here.
- Cult Classic: Largely because of HeartCatch Pretty Cure! and the extensive Multiple Demographic Appeal that convinced people to stay.
- Die for Our Ship: Male love interests to the Cures are regarded rather poorly by some shippers who pair the Cures with their fellow teammates. Some examples are Daisuke and Fujipi.
- Dork Age: Everyone's got their seasons that they can't stand. From the plot of Doki Doki to the filler of Smile, every single season is decried as the franchise's Dork Age by somebody.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: HeartCatch Pretty Cure!, to the point of being a Tough Act to Follow.
- Girl-Show Ghetto: Averted in that despite occasional cutesiness and girliness, the shows make sure to balance things out with more serious stuff that sets the Pretty Cure series apart from other girl shows. The Periphery Demographic consisting of older guys certainly helps.
- Les Yay: Has its own page.
- LGBT Fanbase: Most Precure series are quite well liked among bi/lesbian anime fans.
- Old Guard Versus New Blood: The lines are particularly drawn along Heartcatch (the season associated with the Newbie Boom, with some people declaring the show Ruined FOREVER) and Futari wa (with many older fans adoring Nagisa for the same selfishness and whining that the new fans find so grating they won't touch either of her seasons).
- Periphery Demographic: Adult males. Then again, given that there was a "marketing" paper that listed the "main target" as 4-to-12-year-old girls and 16-to-35-year-old men, this is an arguable subversion.
- Win Back The Crowd: Doki Doki was much better received than the last two seasons. That is, before Regina showed up.
