Pretty Cure is an enduring franchise that has received over a dozen seasons. Pretty Cure's popularity and target audience also ensure it receives new installments regularly. Being a Pretty Cure can be a tough job to fulfill, especially when fighting whole teams of villains that threaten society. However, they also have many perks that come with the position.
Pretty Cures rarely ever work alone, have friends to rely on, and usually save the day no matter how hard the situation gets. They also have opportunities to transform into beautiful, powered-up transformations complete with unique names, abilities, and outfits.
10 Pretty Cures Rarely Ever Work Alone
The power of teamwork is essential in Pretty Cure. Each season of Pretty Cure had its titular heroines working in pairs or groups of up to six people. The only times Pretty Cures are forced to work alone is typically because antagonists separated them from their allies or they've just started their adventure and haven't met other Pretty Cures yet. Other than these rare situations, all of the Pretty Cures usually work together as a team to defeat their foes, tackle other tough situations in their lives, and spend time together.
9 Pretty Cures Have Immediate Access To Transformative Tools
Pretty Cure's young heroines have access to transformative tools, often in the form of compacts, that allow them to transform into their Pretty Cure forms. These devices are handy since they could encounter villains anywhere they go. Having immediate access to their transformation tools is perfect for facing villains at a moment's notice. Portable transformation tools take away the hassle of needing to transform in a set location while villains wreak havoc. They also allow Pretty Cures to protect people efficiently.
8 Pretty Cures Usually Have Guides To Help Them
Most Pretty Cures have a guide or two to help them understand the gravity of their situations and how to navigate them. Mascots such as Peko from Kira Kira Pretty Cure A La Mode or other characters, such as Laura from Tropical-Rouge! Precure, are available to help Pretty Cures understand who they're up against and why.
Having guides to assist new Pretty Cures is extremely handy since it gives them a clear picture of why they are fighting the monsters and villains they encounter. Having a guide could also help them learn about their new powers and transformations as Pretty Cures, especially at the beginning of their magical girl journey.
7 Pretty Cures Have Abilities To Defeat Their Unique Villains
Pretty Cures are often the only people that can defeat the unique antagonists of each installment. Kirakiraru Thieves, for example, steal special sweets in Kira Kira Pretty Cure A La Mode while Yaraneedas steal people's motivation in Tropical-Rouge! Precure. If the Pretty Cures didn't have special skills to defeat these monsters, the antagonists would be near-impossible to defeat by anyone else. Normal people might be able to damage or distract the villains, but defeating the monsters themselves is out of the question.
6 Pretty Cures Always Help Others In Need
Pretty Cures often help everyone in need, ranging from friends and loved ones to the entire world, depending on how serious their situation is. Pretty Cures ensure that saving civilians and innocents takes priority while fighting villains and most people make it out unscathed thanks to their efforts. Whenever someone does get hurt, Pretty Cures are quick to help them out or get them medical assistance. Pretty Cures always focus on others' safety no matter who's in danger, even if it's a wild animal.
5 Pretty Cures Have Lasting Friendships With Each Other
The fact that Pretty Cures work on a team means they all need to get along. Fostering teamwork means that they have opportunities to create lasting friendships with each other since they have to trust each other with their lives. Each individual Pretty Cure might have different personalities that cause clashes, such as Cure Chocolat and Cure Macaron initially not getting along.
However, they eventually learn to understand each other and work well together. Knowing that they're fighting the same enemy together also helps Pretty Cures bond with each other and shoulder the stress of fighting multiple enemies.
4 Each Pretty Cure Has Unique Outfits, Names, & Abilities
No two Pretty Cures are the same, and each Pretty Cure has their own unique name, fashionable outfit, and special abilities. Cure Summer has a white outfit with rainbowish hair, for example, while Cure Whip has a pink outfit with bunny ears. Each group of Pretty Cures might have similar transformation tools, but their abilities and outfits are tailored just for them, so they stand out as individuals. Since each Pretty Cure doesn't have exact copies of each other's outfits and abilities, they're celebrated for their quirks while also being a united team.
3 Each Pretty Cure Has Their Own Unique Narrative
Every Pretty Cure has a different story. The core concepts of becoming a Pretty Cure and defeating bad guys might be similar to each other, but their specific battles and conflicts are quite different for each Pretty Cure.
Some Pretty Cures even join the main story later than others, so they have different experiences compared to Pretty Cures who were present from the beginning. No matter who the Pretty Cures fought or where they came from, their times as Pretty Cures are moments they'll remember for the rest of their lives, long after their main adventure is over.
2 Every Pretty Cure Comes Up With Creative Solutions To Their Problems
All Pretty Cures are fairly good at thinking up creative solutions to solve problems. Notably, Pretty Cures experience a wide spectrum of dilemmas. Unique monsters of the week that can't be defeated normally, figuring out social situations (such as running for class president), saving other school clubs from being suspended, figuring out how to run a patisserie store, or helping others solve their relationship issues are all problems that Pretty Cures have solved with ingenious solutions.
1 All The Pretty Cures Get Happy Endings
Unlike other groups of magical girls that might meet tragic and sad endings, Pretty Cures usually get a happy ending in some way. Their primary antagonists are defeated in the end, innocents are saved, and Pretty Cures can rest easy knowing that the world will be safe thanks to their efforts. The journey to achieve their goals and save the day might be difficult, but it will always be worth it in the end. Their determination to see things through and do what needs to be done is a truly admirable trait.
