* ''Healin' Good♡Pretty Cure'' (2020-2021)


The Franchise seems to have very good relations with {{Toku}}satsu: it's produced by Toei, which also produces ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/KamenRider''[[note]]In fact, one of the Kamen Rider's actor said it will be cool if a crossover between both franchises could happen someday, albeit he knows that putting a live-action series along with an animated one could be difficult[[/note]], and the three franchises are aired back to back in the appropriately named ''Super Hero Time'' block. The ''Pretty Cure'' and ''Super Sentai'' movies have been played as double bills, and Nagisa and Honoka teamed up with ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' characters in an audio drama, and later with ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''. ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' has a less than amiable relation with ''Pretty Cure'' as those who had a role in Gundam went on to play villains for ''Pretty Cure''.[[note]]The exceptions are Creator/RieTanaka, who played Hikari Kujou/Shiny Luminous about a year after playing [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Lacus Clyne]] and Creator/NaokoMatsui, better known for her roles as [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Roux Louka]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Dorothy]], who took up the role of the mascot Ribbon, Creator/YuShimamura, who was still playing [[Anime/GundamReconguistaInG Aida Surugan]] when taking up the role of Haruka Haruno/Cure Flora, Creator/MikakoKomatsu, who played [[Anime/GundamBuildFighters Sei Iori]] before taking the role of Madoka Kaguya/Cure Selene and Creator/HiroyukiYoshino, who played [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 H/Allelujah Haptism]] before playing the fairy Prunce. Also, one of the halves of the original duo, Creator/YokoHonna (Nagisa Misumi/Cure Black) would took up the role of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi Lee Noriega]] years after the original Precure ended.[[/note]] Ironically, as much as the Toku relationship was smooth, it also has some sort of reverse effect with the Gundam series, that those who once voiced Precures has a chance to end up voicing (mostly) female Toku villains (usually from ''Franchise/SuperSentai''). [[note]]Case in points: Creator/AyaHisakawa ([[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Yuri Tsukikage/Cure Moonlight]]/[[Series/ResshaSentaiToQger Madame Noir]]), Creator/MegumiHan ([[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure Hime Shirayuki/Cure Princess]]) [[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger Izayoi Kyuuemon]], Creator/MinakoKotobuki ([[Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure Rikka Hishikawa/Cure Diamond]]/[[Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger Nalia]], Creator/EriKitamura ([[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Cure Berry]] and [[Series/UchuSentaiKyuranger Madako]]), and most recently Karen Miyama ([[Anime/KiraKiraPrecureALaMode Usami Ichika]]/[[Series/KamenRiderZeroOne Gaeru Magia]]. This has retroactively inverted in one way with Creator/MarinaInoue, who first voiced [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Metal Alice]] and then went on to voice [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Nao Midorikawa/Cure March]], and Creator/HarukaTomatsu, first voicing [[Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger Candelila]] and then went to voice [[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure Iona Hikawa/Cure Fortune]]. Another way to invert this is a Sentai protagonistic character actor to voice villains in the Precure series, as seen with Creator/TakayukiGodai (playing [[Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan Takayuki Hiba/Vul Eagle II]] and [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger Hakumenrou]]) voicing [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Akudaikahn]]; Creator/EijiMaruyama ([[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Daizyujin]]) voicing [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Bloody]]; and most recently Creator/YukariTamura ([[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Navi]]) voicing [[Anime/HugttoPrettyCure Ruru]] and Louis Yamada LIII ([[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Professor Amachi]]) voicing [[Anime/HugttoPrettyCure Takumi]][[/note]]

* '''Atsutoshi Umezawa''' - ''Fresh!'' to ''Smile!''
* '''Hiroaki Shibata''' - ''[=DokiDoki=]'' to ''Go! Princess Pretty Cure'' (1st half)
