YMMV: Suite Pretty Cure ♪
  • Angst? What Angst?: In the final episode, even thought Hummy was unable to wake up after her Heroic Sacrifice, Hibiki is the only Cure who didn't lose her spirits, unlike her fellow Cures.
  • Base Breaker: This Pretty Cure series as a whole is probably one of the biggest ones yet, from the Lighter and Softer tone to its somewhat flat characterization.
  • Broken Aesop: One of the main reasons why the series gets flak is the aesop that "Sad music is Evil and Happy Music is good." See Unfortunate Implications down below.
    • A better interpretation: Don't use music as a tool to cause people pain. All genres of music, happy or sad, are meant to be appreciated.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Admit it, you cheered in episode 47 when Hummy takes the Legendary Score, uses it as a shield, and THROWS HERSELF INTO NOISE'S BODY!! And inside it, she tries singing to cure all the notes he swallowed up!
    • Every time Cure Beat fights alone. From episode 22, 23, and especially 33.
    • Episode 38: Cure Muse's solo fight against a Negatone made of her orgel is rather awesome. And later, we have the Cures' gorgeous, gorgeous teamwork as they race in to save Souta. Also, this marks the first time the Goldfish Poop Gang fights the Cures by themselves, rather than relying on their Negatones and Combination Attack.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Noise seems to be more popular than other Big Bads. Being voiced by Freeza and being one of the few Precure villains with reasonable motives surely helped him.
  • Ear Worm: The opening theme.
    • Really, most of the songs in this series can qualify. Most notable can be the transformation theme and when the Belltier is used. Being a music-themed series sure helps.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Waon barely has any screen time, but she has a number of fans, some of whom were very upset about her not being a Sixth Ranger.
    • Ditto with Seika. Some fans were delighted to see her donning a brand new Elegant Gothic Lolita dress in New Stage 2.
    • Ako. Very popular and placed 8th overall in the Pretty Cure General Election. It helps that she's the youngest Cure in history, being nine years old.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Ellen at first. There are still quite a few loyal fanboys lusting over her even after she turned good.
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Ellen's neon-colored getup in episode 5 (temporarily) made her one of these.
  • Foe Yay:
    • Falsetto x Siren/Ellen, after she pulled a Heel-Face Turn. And even more after he was revealed as The Dragon.
    • Noise x Hibiki, due to her being the one who was the most determined to save him.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Cure Rhythm's tutu was once described on a LiveJournal entry reviewing all the Pretty Cure costumes up to this point as making her look "almost like a cross between a ballerina and a princess". Three seasons later, we get a Pretty Cure who's both a ballerina and a princess.
  • Intended Audience Reaction: The fiasco behind Waon and Seika (see the trivia page for further info) was so beautifully crafted to infaurate the fans.
  • Les Yay: Even more than previous seasons.
  • Memetic Molester: Hibiki and Kanade, after they stripped and redressed Ellen off-screen in episode 24...
  • Memetic Mutation: Cure Melody's "finale" pose at the end of Pretty Cure Musical Rondo is slowly on its way of becoming this.
    • And then there's "Meanwhile, Siren gets hit by a car...", a phrase from the episode 10 synopsis.
    • Also, "Come out, NEGATONE!"
  • Moral Event Horizon: Subverted by Mephisto when he brainwashes Siren in episode 13; the real MEH, as revealed in episode 36, was crossed by the one controlling him during that time, the Noise of Evil.
    • Falsetto seems to have been crossing it over and over since taking the role of leader; however, it just may be that he had been played from behind the scenes by Noise all this time.
  • Moe: Ako, particularly later in the series.
  • Narm: Noise's laugh in bird form.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Ako was originally a Bratty Half-Pint whose only main purpose was to point out the stupidity in the heroines. Come Episode 35, where she's revealed to be the masked Cure Muse, and opinions on her quickly changed. Now she's considered the most popular of the Suite Cures, as her rankings on Precure Popularity polls show.
  • Shipping
  • Tear Jerker: The Melody of Happiness/Sorrow. Literally.
    • On the more heartwarming side, the final episode.
    • Episode 21. Siren, under the control of the Noise of Evil, is set to sing the Melody of Sorrow and effect the whole town. Cures Melody & Rhythm are in no position to stop her, Mephisto is standing overhead waiting, and Hummy is held captive by a Bind attached to the top of the clock tower. Rather than beg or cry, Hummy simply smiles at Siren and talks about how she'll always be Siren's friend, following up by singing the song she and Siren sang together as children, making Siren remember all the good times they've had together. When she tries to then sing the Melody of Sorrow at Mephisto's order, she just can't do it; all she can do is break down sobbing.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Hibiki and Kanade's Vitriolic Best Buds relationship, which would put a hamper of their Precure prowess, but could open up a lot more possibilities (especially considering that Precure runs on The Power of Friendship). That gets taken care of in less than 10 episodes, and most of the time, they're not so Vitriolic anymore.
  • Unfortunate Implications: People should only play and listen to happy music. Because happy music is good, and sad music is evil. However...
    • Sweeten That Aesop: The last stretch of episodes changes the series aesop to the better-received "one needs sadness as much as happiness".
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: While this is a highly divisive series, the majority of the fandom does generally agree that the visuals are awesome.
    • The group transformation sequences in particular are highly praised as it created all-new sequences to incorporate the new members. Compared to the other series' cut-and-paste sequences, this is definitely an improvement.
