* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Not played for shock value, but ItMakesSenseInContext. When Tsumugi is practicing her ribbon routine to the temple dance music from Verdi's ''Theatre/{{Aida}}'' in episode 1, it's mentioned what the music is to the ribbon routines of some of the other students.

* MoodWhiplash: This is a generally lighthearted series, but episode 10 has a surprising amount of content dealing with the topic of racism, among them the assertion that Americans are the most racist people on Earth, moreso than even the Japanese, who in real life are rather known for their xenophobia (something that gets pointed out in-series when Tsumugi mentions that when it comes to racism, the Japanese are second only to the Americans).



* NarrativeProfanityFilter: "Tsumugi swore loudly." This is also employed in other manners; for example, immediately after Tsumugi trips in the hall in one episode courtesy of a stray BananaPeel:
-->''Saeko knew what was coming next, so she hastily covered her ears before Tsumugi opened her mouth--and a good thing, too.''

'''Tsumugi''': Worse than that!\\

** As with ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure'' and the second ending of ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5GoGo'' all the Cures are described as being dressed as cheerleaders in the hypothetical ending credits sequence. In Tsumugi's case, she's wearing her own cheerleader costume from the series proper.

* PlayboyBunny: In episode 8, Hitomi, Tsumugi, and Saeko all wear this costume; however, whereas Hitomi's and Saeko's outfits are of the more traditional variety, Tsumugi instead goes for a button-up corset and [[WhoWearsShortShorts red shorts]] with an attached cottontail.



* StockFootage: Homaged. In some episodes, when Cure Clubs tells the MonsterOfTheWeek, "[[InTheNameOfTheMoon I'll punish you!]]," she mimics the stock footage gestures of a certain [[TropeNamer Trope Naming]] sequence from a certain famous MagicalGirl anime which her character design was inspired by.

* IntercontinuityCrossover: With ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', for a two-part episode set during a field trip to Azabu-Juuban, which happens to be not just Hitomi's birthplace but also Sailor Moon's stomping grounds. The seiyuu for that series reprise their roles here in the Japanese version, resulting in ActingForTwo in some cases, e.g. with Creator/KotonoMitsuishi (Bunny in PGSMC, Ribbon in RPC), Creator/HisakoKanemoto (Amy in PGSMC, Yasu in RPC), Creator/AmiKoshimizu (Makoto in PGSMC, Mika in RPC), and Creator/ShizukaIto (Minako in PGSMC, Hikari in RPC). In a flashback taking place during another episode, it's revealed that Queen Selene, the ruler of the Realm of the Sun and the Moon, knew Queen Serenity and was friends with her.

* PlotHole: As a rule, any that appears will be explained within a few episodes.



* RealityIsUnrealistic: A bunch of the fic's critics have been known to take issue with four of the five Cures being affluent (it doesn't help that canon PrettyCure seasons have more middle-class girls than rich kids among the Cures' ranks in any given season). [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/the-list/2014-12-27/.82309 In point of fact, there happens to be an earlier magical girl series where the girls are all affluent, and it's actually a real magical girl anime.]] And that's not the only thing about that series from which the author draws his influence for this one, either.

* ShowingTheirWork: Yes, ''Anime/PrettyCure'' can indeed get [[HeavyMetal pretty heavy with the metal]] (as demonstrated on tracks from ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'', and ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''), never mind that this time the metal is also present in the opening for this series, which takes the metal UpToEleven by ''[[ThrashMetal violating all speed limits known to man]]''.



* SoundtrackDissonance: "Yatta! Rhythmic Pretty Cure". Sure, there's still some of the trademarks of a ''Anime/PrettyCure'' theme, but it sounds very dark and has a thrash metal feel, [[LyricalDissonance which really doesn't match the lyrical tone]].

* StockFootage: In some episodes, when Cure Clubs tells the MonsterOfTheWeek, "[[InTheNameOfTheMoon I'll punish you!]]", the animation is basically a redraw of a certain [[TropeNamer Trope Naming]] sequence from a certain famous MagicalGirl anime; though the costume design is decidedly different here, the character design is only slightly so considering who Tsumugi/Cure Clubs resembles, and the only difference in the animation is that her mouth doesn't move until it gets to the part where she says, "I'll punish you!"

** The play-by-play announcers at DCBL games are examples on both sides of the Pacific; in the Japanese version, they're voiced by Series/IronChef color commentators Kenji Fukui and Yukio Hattori, whereas the English dub has them respectively voiced by Triple Play Baseball's color commentators, Jim Hughson and Buck Martinez.
