The Earth is in Big Trouble! The Last Remaining Pretty Cure!! (地球が大ピンチ!残された最後のプリキュア!! Chikyū ga Dai Pinchi! Nokosare ta Saigo no Purikyua!! ?) is the 1st episode of Doki Doki! Pretty Cure, and also the 438th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. It makes up the first part of the 1st episode of Glitter Force Doki Doki, "A New Adventure".


After the defeat of the Trump Kingdom, the Jikochuu make their way to Earth, where Cure Sword follows them to protect everyone. Meanwhile, the cheerful student council president, Aida Mana, learns that she may just be a part of something bigger when she attempts to defend Cure Sword as a fight breaks out.



Cure Sword witnesses the defeat of Trump Kingdom

In Trump Kingdom, Cure Sword fights against the Jikochuu monsters who have invaded the land. She sees a giant shadow overcast the castle and, despairing, blames herself for Trump Kingdom being taken over.

Elsewhere, a class of students is paying a visit to the newly opened Clover Tower, and Mana is introduced as the dependant student council president, who is helping classmates with a smile on her face. This ranges from finding a purse, tending to a girl who got carsick, and finally settling a fight between her classmates and a group of boys from another school. Her friend Rikka drags her away and scolds Mana. She should set an example by delegating things instead of shouldering everyone's problems by herself. Mana explains that she enjoys doing it.

Mana observing the Cure Loveads.

After helping a little girl, Mana spots a popular teen idol, Makoto, being mobbed by her fans. In the turmoil, Makoto loses her hairpin and Mana notices and returns it. After Makoto thanks her, she is approached by a young salesman and he asks her to look at his items on sale. She is immediately charmed by an unusual pin, a Cure Lovead.

Suddenly, Mana got sucked into the Lovead and was stunned for a moment. She assumes it to be a dream and the man gives her the Lovead for free. Rikka drags Mana away again, as they need to get in line for the outlook on top of the tower.

Alice and her butler, Sebastian arrive for a tour as well. As the owner of the tower, she could skip the line, but insists on staying within it, as it was what Mana taught her.

Ira obtaining the man's black Psyche.

A man in queue gets annoyed about the long line and muses if he should have cut in line. A mysterious boy, Ira, hears his selfish desire, extracts the man's Psyche and creates a Jikochuu Crab monster. It rampages around and heads for the top of the tower.

Mana, fearing Michiko's safety, runs up the emergency stairs. At the top Mana brings Michiko to safety and scolds the Jikochuu Crab. A rabbit-like fairy, Sharuru, is impressed by Mana's guts and shows herself to Mana, offering to fight with her in the form of a Lovely Commune. However Mana does not know how to transform and is chased by the Jikochuu Crab.

Cure Sword rescues Mana by kicking the Jikochuu.

Cure Sword arrives and quickly dispatches the Jikochuu Crab, and Mana thanks her. As the Psyche flies back to its original owner, the class realizes the principal is gone and Rikka realizes that Mana is missing. It turns out that the principal had her Psyche stolen as well.

Suddenly, another Jikochuu Crab arrived with Ira's companion, Marmo. The crab grabs Cure Sword and Marmo attempts to force her to spill the whereabouts of the "Princess". She refuses and tries to break free.


"Seems that you've awakened, My Sweet Heart."

Mana, trying to rescue her, is pushed aside. Due to her earnest desire to rescue Cure Sword, the Cure Lovead starts to shine and Sharuru instructs her to place it within the Commune. She transforms into Cure Heart. Meanwhile, the young salesman is pleased the way things is going as planned.

Major Events





Secondary Characters


  • When attempting to transform into Cure Heart, Mana uses the phrase "Henshin", a reference to another Toei series, Kamen Rider. In addition, the pose she adopts is almost identical to that used by Takeshi Hongo during his transformations into Kamen Rider Ichigo.


  • As Cure Heart's full body is revealed, the toe of her boots are pink. They are normally white.
  • In Netflix's subtitles for Glitter Force Doki Doki, Glitter Spade (Cure Sword) is called "Flash".

    • The girl who got carsick, originally Yashima, becomes Patty.
    • The boy who lost his wallet, originally Mimura, becomes Melvin.
    • The girl who got separated from her parents, originally Michiko, becomes Katie.
  • In the original version, Sharuru tells Mana to transform, but she never says how, so Mana says, "Henshin!" and nothing happens.

Later, Kippie tells Maya the right transformation phrase ("Glitter Force Makeover!"), and it is never explained why Kippie originally misinformed her.
