Go To

Pretty Cure 2028 is a fanseries by Ryanasaurus0077 about an international group of crack commandos calling themselves Pretty Cure who are assigned to sabotage the New Axis's war effort during World War III. It has a technology thematic.

This Curefic contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Cure Interface, the American member of the team.
  • Big Bad: Antonia Bello, the Italian dictatress.
  • Continuity Nod: Ryan Montana is mentioned in episode 1 as the 2024 gold medalist for individual all-round rhythmic gymnastics and a key figure in the UK team's gold medal for group rhythmic gymnastics... and the one whose hand Antonia Bello refused to shake when the results were announced.

  • Dance Battler: Cure Code, the Russian member of the team, who is very skilled at ballet.
  • Darker and Edgier: And how. The first episode even deals with a not-so-detailed summary of the events leading up to World War III.
  • The Dragon: Gian Maria Galli, Bello's minister of propaganda.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Bello believes that fighting with Weapons Of Mass Destruction would be considered cheating and bans everyone in the New Axis from using such weapons.
  • Five-Token Band: The Cure squad consists of an American Action Girl, a British scientist, a Russian ballerina, a Mexican Teen Genius, a Japanese otaku, and a South Korean robotics expert, and is supervised by a German Big Good.
  • Genre Shift: It's Pretty Cure, War Movie-style, and has a lot of Macaroni Combat influence, among other things.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the grand scope of the Numbered World Wars, Germany and Japan.

  • How We Got Here: The first episode actually summarizes this.
  • I Am Very British: Cure Zuse, the British member of the team.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: Cure Interface, again.
  • Meganekko: Cure Zuse, again.
  • Minor Crime Reveals Major Plot: In the first episode, it's stated that Enrico Luciani murdered a British exchange student and her boyfriend and made it look like three of her friends were responsible. One of them, an American exchange student, was convicted once thanks to evidence planted by him and some of his associates, then the conviction was reversed and she returned home. Then she got tried again, this time in absentia, and this time Bello and her friends were more careful in hiding their involvement in her second conviction. The refusal of her country to extradite her after that caused Italy, already in dire straits financially, to isolate itself from the rest of the world and set the stage for Bello to take power following an emergency election that shortly followed. It's her plot to rid the world of all whites that really kicks off the story. Japan certainly saw something fishy about her very early on, because as soon as word got out about her election as Italy's prime minister, its Diet voted to rescind the country's 70-year-old abstention from war and prepared an army to protect its allies across the world if push should come to shove... which it inevitably does.

  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: Antonia Bello, again. Her entire staff, in fact.
  • Noble Bigot: Jane Selway/Cure Zuse, who may come across as xenophobic to those who don't know her very well but actually judges people by their merit and skills.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In episode 1, it's noted that under normal circumstances (and a female dictator with a Hitler-like agenda taking over Italy is most certainly not normal circumstances), Japan and South Korea would never have tried any harder to patch things up between each other. By the start of the story, there are still problems between the two countries, but they're not as bad as they once were and a bunch of them have even been solved. This happens a lot faster than it would've had Bello not become Italy's newest prime minister.
  • Pastiche: Episode 1 is this to the Pathé News documentaries Milestones of the Century and Men of Destiny.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Antonia Bello is a female Hitler who believes that Caucasians are the root of Italy's problems and that the Mediterranean people are the master race.
  • Power Trio: An evil example with Italy, North Korea, and Syria.
  • Teen Genius: Cure Motherboard, the Mexican member of the team, who is always carrying a top-of-the-line MacBook.
  • Villain Protagonist: Antonia Bello is this in episodes centering on her Evil Plan of genocide against whites and other dealings in neo-Fascist Italy.
  • War Is Hell: The Cures face a lot of situations that don't end well. Such is the nature of war, as the author of Animorphs has pointed out.
  • World War III: Its opening shots were fired in response to Italy invading Poland. Germany is quick to start fighting, as is France... which is soon conquered by Bello's army.
  • You Have Failed Me: Noticeably averted.
