Tag refers to any image referencing this lighthearted magical girl franchise created by Toei_Animation. Each individual continuity has its own tag but all of them should be accompanied by the precure tag.

The franchise is one of the most popular and successful magical girl franchises of the 2000s. The series began with Futari wa Pretty Cure in 2004. Most of the individual series are standalone but a few continuities have received direct sequels. The series has also done a few crossover movies featuring the Pretty Cure girls.

Since many different character designers, writers, directors, and animators have worked on the franchise, the art style and tone of each incarnation varies. Nevertheless, there are recurring elements of the series. Each installment features multiple magical girls as the heroines. The story lines strongly emphasize friendship and teamwork to the point that they are given more importance than romance. Although the series is primarily targeted towards young girls, the series is distinct from other magical girl works in the way the fight scenes are staged. Fights are very physical and reminiscent of shonen action series like Dragon Ball. The girls, in their magical girl forms, are blessed with super strength, speed, and endurance, and they engage in fisticuffs with the main villains as well as throwing around magical spells. The power of the combatants' attacks causes a large amount of destruction complete with plenty of explosions. The director of Futari wa Pretty Cure, Nishio Daisuke, had also directed the anime adaptation of Dragon Ball, one of the most iconic and influential shounen action series. The series also has a tradition of having upbeat ending dance animations which are rendered in CG in later series. These dances were choreographed by Maeda Ken, who also played Kaoru in Fresh Precure, until his passing on April 26, 2016.

Toei also owns the rights to live action tokusatsu series like Super Sentai and Kamen Rider and it is common for fanartists to draw art crossing Precure with the aforementioned series. Honno Youko, who played Cure Black, had also appeared in Kamen Rider Black and Kamen Rider Black RX as a child. Precure movies and Super Sentai movies have also been placed together as double bills.
