* MisaimedMarketing: For some reason, [[https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2018/06/28/theres-precure-lingerie-arienai there's lingerie sets based off Cure Black and Cure White]], completely ignoring the fact that A) the show is aimed towards kids and B) ''Nagisa and Honoka are 14-years-old when they became Pretty Cures.''

Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: The first one in the entire franchiseó[[RelativeButton Gekidrago trying to kill Cure Black's little brother in front of her.]] Not very impressive in scale compared to later MEH's in the franchise, but it was the first especially despicable act of villainy the franchise ever saw, and it's notable in that it resulted in Cure Black ''killing'' Gekidrago.


* FirstInstallmentWins: Though there are fans of later seasons of ''Anime/PrettyCure'' (most notable so far being the fan-favorites ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure''), the VocalMinority that screams "Ruined!" tend to give out this trope.

** Similarly, people thought that this show [[FirstInstallmentWins was the best one]] due to having the GoodOldFisticuffs toned down in later seasons, as the hand-to-hand combat have become just as violent as of ''[[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Heartcatch.]]'' [[note]]In fact, the violent action scenes ironically returned as early as the latter half of ''[[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Splash Star]]''.

** Cure Black's voice actress was a child actress before becoming a seiyuu, appearing in series like ''KamenRiderBlack'' and ''KamenRiderBlackRX''. This means Cure Black really is a Kamen Rider!

** Sort of zig-zagged in Spain. For a long time, the series was the hottest anime prospect in RTVE: it received an unusually expensive dub, was advertised ad nauseam, and its runs were succesful enough to distribute ''Max Heart'' and the movies (and even talk about bringing ''Splash Star'' and ''Yes! 5''). However, roughly three years since its emission, the channel decided to shoot the franchise dead and replace it with ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch''. This caused that ''Pretty Cure'' as a franchise got forgotten not much after, though in turn it ensured ''Futari Wa'' remained as its only face in the memory of most Spaniards.

%%* * ContestedSequel: How some feel about ''Max Heart''.Heart''. Although it has been VindicatedByHistory, the spotlight focuses heavily on Nagisa, and a lot of the plot is a RecycledScript. Much like with Polnareff taking the spotlight in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders'', how much one likes Nagisa seems to determine how much they like the season.



* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: While it still gets acknowledgement of starting the franchise, due to the popularity of ''[[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Heartcatch]]'' which have [[ArtEvolution greatly improved artwork and animation]] along with over-the-top [[GoodOldFisticuffs hand-to-hand combat]] that rivals that of this series, and the [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar successor]] having been VindicatedByHistory. The idea of FirstInstallmentWins has pretty much faded.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The Mable Screw is known as the Marble Twister in English for [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything obvious reasons]].
* ContestedSequel: How some feel about ''Max Heart''.
* DeaderThanDisco: In Spain, ''Pretty Cure'' was once the hottest anime prospect in public television, receiving an unusually expensive dub and being advertised nonstop. The series's runs were succesful enough to import ''Max Heart'' and the movies, and even talk about ''Splash Star'' and ''Yes! 5''. However, roughly three years since its emission, the boom pretty much faded off, and the channel which owned the rights at the time, Clan TV, decided to replace the series with ''Manga/MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' and shoot dead all the future proyects about the franchise. Nowadays, ''Pretty Cure'' is pretty much forgotten in Spain.

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: One main complaint against the series is the admittedly wooden and dull antagonists of the series, who tend to not have any of the interesting personality quirks the later seasons tend to have, with Kiriya, Uraganos, and the butler Zakennas being the notable exceptions. Somewhat understandable, as the franchise just started to get popular at the time.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Nagisa gets hit with this, especially for those who came in [[OldGuardVersusNewBlood during the]] ''[[Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure HeartCatch]]'' NewbieBoom. Some fans find her pessimism, constant whining, incredulity, arguments with her fairy partner, and selfish streak so long that she overcomes through CharacterDevelopment as a refreshing take of a MagicalGirl lead, while others are put off with the ''very same reason'' and the seasons in which she stars. However, many fans do agree that she's a {{Badass}} despite these traits. It also helps that Creator/YokoHonna is involved with the ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' duology during her childhood years.
