Suite Pretty Cure ♪
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tear Jerker: The Melody of Happiness/Sorrow. Literally.
The Scrappy: Ako. Dear God, Ako.
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.
They Plotted a Perfectly Good Waste: on the other hand, the fiasco behind Waon and Seika (see the trivia page for further info) was so beautifully crafted.
Unfortunate Implications: People should only play and listen to happy music. Because happy music is good, and sad music is evil. However...
Warp The 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.
