1As one of the most successful and long-running MagicalGirl franchises out there, ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' has resulted in many references in other works, especially anime.-----[[AC: {{Anime}} & {{Manga}}]]* ''Anime/FlipFlappers'': The girls transform and fight in the style of ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' heroines. To drive the point home, they even called themselves "''Pure'' Blade" and "''Pure'' Barrier" (though the collector's book included in the Blu-ray limited edition explains that the girls' transformations actually have no names, and calling out "Pure Blade" and "Pure Barrier" was a one-time expression of enthusiasm caused by eating the Peppy Potato).* ''Manga/LoveMeForWhatIAm'': There's a work featuring a magical girl called "Magical Girl Twinkle Shine", which takes some ''Pretty Cure'' influence. Ten enjoys crossplaying as her.* Episode 3 of ''Gundam Build Fighters Battlelogue'' is just one big shout-out towards ''Franchise/PrettyCure''.* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': In the sixth episode of Season 4, one character buys a toy from an anime called ''Mo-retsu! Puriyua 10'', a cross between ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' and ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure''.* The first episode of ''Manga/PenguinMusume'' opens with Sakura watching a spoof of ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''. Later on in the episode, when she is discussing her interests, she shows off a dress that resembles [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Cure White's]], but with a gigantic rotary telephone on the hip instead of the cellphone carrier the real one has.* In episode 113 of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'''s ''Sun and Moon'' arc, Mallow, Lillie, and Lana have {{Transformation Sequence}}s based off of a mix of ''Anime/HugttoPrettyCure'' and ''Anime/KiraKiraPrecureALaMode'', a team theme based on ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'', and a beam finisher not too different from [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Pretty Cure Marble Screw]]. They even have some cute Pokémons acting as their fairies.* There's a ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' bit where characters turn into Lily Cure and Itoshiki is the BigBad.* An episode of ''[[Anime/{{Tamagotchi}} Let's Go! Tamagotchi!]]'' has Chamametchi transforming into Super Chama Girl, who resembles [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Cure Dream]]. Coincidentally, Bandai made the toys for both franchises.[[AC:Film -- Animated]]* ''Anime/WeatheringWithYou'' features characters cosplaying [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Cure Black and Cure White.]][[AC: LiveActionTV]]* For years, previous ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' monsters were created from various organisms or inanimate objects, summoned by supernatural means, or naturally extraterrestrial. [[ContrastingSequelAntagonist But]] the Minusaurs of Series/KishiryuSentaiRyusoulger are not only created by using humans as LivingBatteries, but they're also near-mindlessly focused on their host's biggest source of stress, making them more akin to ''Pretty Cure'' monsters than the typical Sentai fare.[[AC: VideoGames]]* ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch3'': Hailey Anne is a fan of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Sailor Cuties]]'', a mix of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' and ''Franchise/PrettyCure''. This also applies to the [[Anime/YokaiWatch anime adaptation]].[[AC: WebComics]]* Cure Black, Cure White, and Cure Pine are among the magical girls that utterly decimate Incognito and send him back through the hellmouth in ''WebComic/AndShineHeavenNow''.
