Spoiler warning: Some of the tropes you see on this page haven't been written into the story yet, but have been planned out by the author of the fanfic.


Friendly Pretty Cure contains examples of:

  • Actor Allusion: Madoka's dream voice actress is Yumi Hara. She is most famous for her role as Takane Shijo, a character with a purple theme color, a Sugar-and-Ice Personality, and who is widely regarded as one of, if not the best, singers in her franchise.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Chika, Shion, and Madoka. Justified as the Cures are based on real people.
  • All There in the Manual: Many interesting bits of information about the Cures that couldn't be mentioned in the story somehow were posted on the wikia.
  • All Your Colors Combined: Seen in the group attack, Friendship Crescendo, and its variations.
  • Alternate Universe Fic
  • Big Bad: Enemie, leader of the Negative.

  • By The Power Of Gray Skull: "Pretty Cure! Light of Friends!"
  • Calling Your Attacks
  • Care-Bear Stare: The Cures' group attack, Friendship Crescendo.
  • Color-Coded Elements: Subverted. The Elements are color-coded, but sometimes not in the traditional Pretty Cure way.
    • For example, Cure Courage uses lightning and is blue, while lightning-based cures are typically yellow. Cure Wisdom uses time, which is usually purple or silver/grey. Cure Wisdom is the yellow Cure.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Cure Sweet and Dark Desire's battle in Episode 6. Sweet doesn't even attack for the whole battle, and the only reason she isn't defeated right then and there is because of Dark Desire's tiredness.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: All of them, at least in Pretty Cure form.
  • Darker and Edgier: Not as extreme as some other Pretty Cure fan works, but as the story goes on, it's revealed that it's not the lightest, cutest one either.
    • To summarize: The series is set in motion by the off-screen death of Madoka's uncle. Her grief soon overwhelms her and she spirals into a depression, which renders her so weak that she is able to easily fall victim to the More Than Mind Control plan that the Negative have in store for her. It doesn't help that the Negative themselves are symbols for some well-known syntomps of depression. (see Does This Remind You of Anything? below)

  • Debut Queue: Though it is slightly subverted with Madoka debuting in Episode 1, considering she doesn't transform for the first time until episode 6, it's still in place.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The Negative are symbolic of depression, taking hold of Madoka after she crosses the Despair Event Horizon, with each member representing some psychological symptoms of the disorder
    • Enemie represents shutting yourself away from your friends and the things you used to enjoy, as well as the constant negative thinking that goes through a depressed mind.
    • Douleur represents the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, as he inspires Madoka to become these things through thinking Safety in Indifference. He also represents the safety you feel in indifference, with him trying to get her to feel as safe and secure as possible while doing nothing for herself.
    • Envie, of course, represents the jealousy and irritability you feel towards friends and family who don't have to deal with the burden of depression.
  • Elemental Powers: Played with. They're not the standard variety (i.e fire,air,water,earth) but the Cures do control love, time, lightning, laughter/emotion and moonlight
  • Excited Title! Two-Part Episode Name!: In fact, an easy way to tell if an episode is going to take a darker tone is to watch out for the lack of this.
  • Forced into Evil: Inverted. Madoka was forced out of evil. Her redemption was not by choice, but instead through the rest of the Cures' using a Combined Energy Attack to purify her.
  • Frills of Justice: This is a Pretty Cure fanseries, what did you expect?
    • Frilly Upgrade: Played with. Not really frilly, but their Superior forms replace their typical magical girl uniforms with a lacy gown resembling a choir gown.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Alana meets Bobble for the first time when her younger sisters begin fighting over him, thinking he's a plush toy.
  • Gotta Catch Them All: The Memory Charms. Most of them are used for new attacks for their corresponding Pretty Cure, but the Vivid Charms, created from the Cures' most vivid memories, upgrade them into their Superior Forms.
  • Haunted House: The Negative's manor, from the outside (as well as the inside if you aren't under the effects of the Lotus-Eater Machine that Douleur's brainwashing induces.)
  • Hero Looking for Group: The first 4 or so episodes playing like this, with Alana finding the other Pretty Cure, and we also get a little more information on Madoka.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Played with in Episode 25's fight, which has the Pretty Cure fighting against Dark Desire and purifying her. While the Cures' all know that she was a Pretty Cure that had been corrupted by The Negative, what they didn't know was that they were also fighting to save another one of their friends, Cure Desire's civillian form, Madoka
  • Insert Song: Usually featured in episodes with choir performances. In Episode 6, it's featured as the audition song.
  • Kidnapped by an Ally: Madoka was kidnapped by the Negative when she first came to the Manor, and, although they are the antagonists, they were her allies at the time.
  • The Lost Woods: Winter's Forest, the place where the Negative Manor is located.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: The Negative Manor is this, designed to cater to Dark Desire's indulgences.
  • Magic Mirror: The Negative have one in their base, which they use to spy on the Pretty Cure.
  • Magic Music: Music is a sub-motif in this series, so this should be a given. Expect to see it extra in Cure Sweet and Cure Desire though.
  • Magical Girl: As is the standard for Pretty Cure.
    • Dark Magical Girl: For a good chunk of the season, Cure Desire is this, in the form of Dark Desire.
  • Magical Incantation
  • Magical Land: The Friendship Kingdom
  • Monster of the Week: The Kiraino.
  • More Than Mind Control: The brainwashing that Madoka is put under by The Negative.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Dark Desire's first fight with Cure Sweet in episode 6, has Dark Desire draining Sweet's energy with an inescapable cocoon of fire. The only reason Cure Sweet isn't completly defeated is that eventually Desire gets too tired to keep up the attack.
  • Ominous Fog: The mist surrounding the Negative's manor.
  • Plot Coupon: The Cures need to collect the Memory Charms. When they've collected enough of the charms to open the Memory Chest, they will have access to their upgraded Superior Forms. Two of them even get access to brand new transformation items because of it.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: All but one of the Pretty Cure (Cure Courage) go through this during their transformation.
  • The Power of Friendship: The series main motif.
  • Quivering Eyes: Very briefly mentioned, but in a Blink-and-You-Miss-It sort-of moment, Dark Desire's eyes quiver just before she's purified.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Arguably all of the Cures in Cure form, and Madoka in regular form.
  • School Play: Featured in episode 9, where the girls' school puts on Sleeping Beauty.
  • Series Fauxnale: Episode 19 and the Epilouge were suppoussed to be the final episodes, though it was swiftly un-ended due to the creator's want to share the then unused content.
  • Spelling Bee: The Pretty Cure have to go through one in order to recover one of Cure Wisdom's Memory Charms.
  • Standard Evil Organization Squad: The Negative, the group responsible for corrupting Cure/Dark Desire
  • Technicolor Fire: Dark Desire's fire is purple.
  • Transformation Sequence
  • Transformation Trinket: The Bond Bracelets.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Madoka's goes through one during the first half of the story: She had already been dealing with low self-esteem due to her Asperger's Syndrome and cerebral palsy, but shortly before the story begins, her uncle is revealed to have unexpectedly passed away. A few episodes later she fails an audition, which causes her to finally break down and give in to the Negative's corruption. She gets better, but still.
