  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The fourth entry in the Pretty Cure franchise. The title comes from the fact that this time, there are five Cures instead of two.

Nozomi Yumehara is a energetic though dimwitted girl who is Desperately Looking for a Purpose In Life. She meets a hot guy in a chance encounter, follows him into the library, and before she knows it her belief in the importance of following your dreams has turned her into a Magical Girl with a sidekick who looks like a yellow plush tanuki. Within a few episodes, she's assembled a complete team:

With the help of extradimensional tanuki duo Coco and Nuts, their goal is to collect fifty-five creatures called Pinkies in order to complete the "Dream Collet", enabling it to grant a single wish and restore Coco and Nuts' destroyed homeworld. Though you would be forgiven for forgetting about this subplot, since Pinky-collecting is usually treated as an aside when nothing else is going on. The majority of screentime is given to the Pretty Cures' fight against the Nightmare Group, an evil corporation who wish to steal the Dream Collet for their Big Bad queen, the mask-wearing Despariah. Later, the Pretty Cure get another ally in the form of Milk, a rabbit-earred mascot creature who gives them their Mid-Season Upgrade.

Yes! produced more than a few waves in the Western fandom when it discarded nearly all of the synonymous Pretty Cure tropes, becoming a more derivative Magical Girl series than its predecessors. Despite this, the character development is good, the action is solid and it still retains some of the fistfighting combat and Post Modernism that makes Pretty Cure stand out in the Magical Girl genre. It also started the trend of having every transformation phrase and special attack include the phrase "Pretty Cure" (where previously it was confined to the Finishing Move).

Yes! proved popular enough to get a direct sequel called Yes! Precure 5 GO!GO!. After upgrading their powers, the Pretty Cure 5 team is recruited to protect the mysterious Cure Rose Garden from Eternal, an evil museum that steals and stockpiles priceless treasures from across the universe. To do this, the Pretty Cure have to track down the four missing rulers of the kingdoms that neighbour the Kingdom of Palmier, as they hold the four keys that unlock the path to the Cure Rose Garden.

Along with new mascot creature Syrup, an orange flying penguin mailman, the Pretty Cure get a Sixth Ranger:
