Discovered?! Cure Ace's Weakness! (バレちゃった!?キュアエースの弱点! Barechatta!? Kyua Ēsu no Jakuten!?) is the 27th episode of the season Doki Doki! Pretty Cure, and also the 464th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. In the English dub, Glitter Force Doki Doki, it is called "Ace's Secret Weakness".


After Cure Ace refuses to help them, the girls are left wondering if she is truly on their side and desire to learn more about her. They start by learning more about Aguri, her icy civilian form.


The Cures fighting off the Jikochuu.

The episode starts with Gula, who has summoned a bicycle Jikochuu to fight the Cures. The Cures struggle against it but Cure Ace, who has recently shown up refuses to lend them a hand as she observes a nearby clock. The girls try to make her reconsider but realize they don't have a choice, so they resume fighting. Cure Sword uses Sparkle Sword, followed by Cure Heart purifying it with Heart Shoot. Gula leaves and the girls cheer for their success.

From the distance, Aguri observes them before taking off.

All the girls wearing kimonos.

The next day, the girls were making a delivery and arrive at their destination- but just then they spot Aguri and call out "Cure Ace", causing her to briskly inform them that her name is "Aguri". The old woman returns and explains who she is to Aguri -her grandmother- then Aguri asks if she can go with the girls. She accepts and Aguri suggests they participate in a tea ceremony together.

Meanwhile, Leva and Gula are hanging out a bar trying to determine what they should do next.

Later, the girls arrive in kimonos. They sit down and watch as Aguri makes tea, then after they drink it she begins explaining how Cure Ace, her alter ego works. The group ask her why she won't help them when they needed it, and she reveals to them that she wants them to be able to fight as a team without her help.

Gula, and Leva summon a Jikochuu.

Nearby, a young man is busy with work when Gula and Leva set their sights on him. They summon a Barbeque Jikochu from him and when the girls notice this, they transform to fight.

A fight breaks out and the Cures attempt to block and avoid the attacks. Cure Ace transforms and uses her Yellow Ace Shot to trap the Jikochu. However, it breaks loose and resumes attacking.

Gula arrives and demands that Aguri's mother feeds him. When Ace sees this she attempts to defeat him when her brooch starts to shine, causing her to de-transform and fall down. Then as Gula was going to attack, and the Jikochuu too when the Cures arrive to defend them and gain more power, allowing them t

Aguri, and Ai laughing.
