Pretty Cure

    The Main Trio 

Love Momozono (Cure Peach)

Voiced by: Kanae Oki

A ridiculously positive girl who's very fond of dancing and keen on spreading happiness to everyone she comes across. During a concert of her favorite dance group Trinity, Labyrinth begins its attack on humans. Love threw herself to defend the lead of the Trinity, Miyuki Chinen, and was chosen to become Cure Peach to fight against evil. Shortly afterward she started training her dancing skills with Miyuki. Cure Peach's speciality is punching.

Miki Aono (Cure Berry)

Voiced by: Eri Kitamura

A tall girl who aspires to be a model and tries to keep up a perfect appearance and attitude, but is always caring and protective to those she loves. Although she goes to different school than Love, she and Love have been friends since childhood. She lives with her divorced mother, and due to her looks, she had to ask her brother Kazuki to act like her boyfriend. She awakens as Cure Berry when she insisted on protecting her brother from a Nakewameke, and later on joins Love's dancing group to improve her body shape and health. Cure Berry's speciality is kicking.

  • Action Girl
  • Bare Your Midriff: As Cure Berry.
  • The Big Girl: Has taken this role, after Cure Passion took her Lancer role. Cure Berry is taller than the other girls (in fact, she's the second tallest Precure after Cure Moonlight in the franchise), and being one of two Fresh Cures whose specialty is attacking (in her case: kicks).
  • Can't Catch Up: She's worried about this while she was lacking her Midseason Upgrade. This leads her to take a level in Jerkass for Chiffon in the next episode, until she learns about taking her responsibility as Chiffon's caretaker/mom instead of just using her as a method to power up. Cue Cry Cute.
  • Cool Big Sis: For her little sickly brother Kazuki.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt
  • Disappeared Dad: Her parents had a Solomon Divorce and she lives with her mother. Her brother lives with her father - who is never seen in the series.
  • The Fashionista: While not as much as Erika in the next season, Miki is pretty fashion-conscious, as she's aiming for a dream of being a fashion model.
  • Freak Out!: What happens if she sees an octopus. See the trope below.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Performs it to Cure Peach in The Movie.
  • Hair Decorations: Her headband.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Nearly everyone who comes across her comment on how beautiful she is (for a 14-years old). She has so many would-be suitors that hit on her, to the point where she had to ask Kazuki to pretend be her boyfriend just to drive them off. Inevitable, since she's trying to be 'perfect', and her dream job is to be a fashion model.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She's the third tallest Pretty Cure in the franchise and quite tall for Japanese standards, considering she's 14.
  • Kick Chick: Cure Berry's specialization is in kicking. She is, however, fine with punching.
  • The Lancer: Before Cure Passion joined them.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Dark Feminine to Inori's Light Feminine.
  • Meaningful Name: Miki contains the characters for "beauty" and "hope", while the "ao" in Aono means "blue".
  • The Perfectionist: Her Catch Phrase is after all "I'm perfect!", and she mostly tries to look and act perfect in every way, and at first, she'd usually hide any imperfect things she happened to have (like her fears towards octopus). But this is also occasionally Played for Laughs; when things go downhill, Miki would instead go "I'm not perfect at all...". On the other hand, any time she's not even bothering to appear perfect (especially during her focus episode where she unlocks her Pickrun), it's a sign that things just got too serious for her. On the bright side and unusual for the trope, being a perfectionist doesn't make Miki batshit insane like other examples of the trope, she's still a positive and good girl through and through.
  • Plucky Girl: The 'Blue Heart' symbolizes hope, thus Miki always kept her hope and refuses to fall into despair.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt
  • Rapunzel Hair: Classic (butt) length. Even moreso as Cure Berry, where it becomes a really large drill ponytail.
  • The Smart Girl: She is a blue Cure, of course. However, she does not have many moments.
  • Stripperific: as Cure Berry
  • True Blue Femininity
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Her Midseason Upgrade also lets her...change Chiffon's clothes. There was an episode where she used it to put the Cures in baseball uniforms.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Octopi in her case, due to an event in her childhood. Unlike Inori's case with ferrets, Miki didn't so much get over it as temporarily put aside her fears to protect her friends. When the same octopus-Nakewameke returns in All Stars DX3, Miki still trembles at its presence.note 
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: More like purplish-blue.
  • Younger than She Looks: The main reason for the Babaa nickname; she looks more like a high-schooler than the 14 year old she's supposed to be.
  • Zettai Ryouiki

Inori Yamabuki (Cure Pine)

Voiced by: Akiko Nakagawa

A daughter of veterinarians, she is another childhood friend of Love and Miki, and attends a Christian school. Usually called 'Buki' instead of her first name, she's at first a rather shy girl that loves animals. She hesitated to join Love's dancing group at first, but after she awakened as Cure Pine by protecting an animal patient, she gained more confidence to eventually join the dancing group and become more outgoing. Cure Pine's speciality is stamina.

  • Action Girl
  • Crazy-Prepared: Who ever brought an umbrella to the amusement park to protect from splashing water caused by the log flume?
    • And who would've come up with the idea of bringing in a mechanical retractable long hand just in case she's forced to touch a ferret that she feared?
  • Friend to All Living Things: Except ferrets, due to a slightly traumatic childhood event. And even then that wears off.
  • Japanese Christian: Possibly; she goes to a Christian private school, and in Episode 3 it looks like she's praying in a church.
  • Kindly Vet: A daughter of one, and she's aiming to be an accomplished one.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Light Feminine to Miki's Dark Feminine
  • Meaningful Name: Inori means "pray", which specifically refers to her element of prayers. The "buki" of Yamabuki means "blow", referring to her Pine Flute, and the "ki" in "buki" can mean "yellow"
  • Nice Girl: When she notices that Setsuna grows tired of Love and Miki abusing Akarun's power, she denies that she also forgotten something in her house. After a private talk with Setsuna, she finally admits it and has Setsuna retrieves it, revealing that said item is actually a set of gymnastic uniform she made for Setsuna, just like the ones she made for Love and Miki.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: When wearing a regal dress... damn
  • Shrinking Violet: Though later she becomes a bit more outgoing.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: From episode 13 onwards, thanks to her Midseason Upgrade. While there are a lot of kind animals, Inori also finds out that there's also some uncaring and unhelpful ones (but harmless).
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In her case, ferrets... And Tarte just happened to be one. However, she is no longer afraid of him after the events of episode 10.

    Cure Passion (Spoilers) 

Setsuna Higashi / Eas (Cure Passion)

Voiced by: Yuka Komatsu

Eas used the alias Setsuna Higashi in order to manipulate and break apart Love's circle of friends, only to find herself becoming part of said circle. Eventually her life was terminated by Labyrinth, but she was resurrected as Cure Passion. Having nowhere to go, she was invited to stay with the Momozonos as a surrogate daughter, adopted the name Setsuna for real, and started learning about what it's like to live like a normal human. Cure Passion's speciality is speed.

    Allies 

Chiffon

Voiced by: Satomi Koorogi

Tarte

Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno

Azukina

Voiced by: Mayu Isshiki

Miyuki Chinen

Voiced by: Mayumi Iizuka

  • Big Sister Mentor: She is not much older than the Cures, but she is indeed their dance teacher.
  • Cool Big Sis: For both the Cures and Daisuke (her actual little brother).
  • Cool Teacher: Dance lesson teachers anyway. Also has shades of Stern Teacher.
  • Heroic Bystander: Actually helps fight a monster at one point (episode 44).
  • Red Herring: (Heh.) The other Cures and particularly Tarte think she could be the fourth Pretty Cure - to the point where Tarte actually begs her to join at one point. Akarun (the red key sprite) is even seen near Miyuki a few times. It just so happens that when Akarun appears near Miyuki, Eas is also there.
  • Refusal of the Call: Played with in that she was never The Chosen One to begin with; in fact her anguished refusal in Episode 26 is Played for Laughs. Later on though she seems really eager to be a Pretty Cure coach.
  • Secret Keeper: The Cures end up transforming in front of her. It finally clues her in as to why her students are so exhausted and decides to call off the dance lessons for a while.

Daisuke Chinen

Voiced by: Tarusuke Shingaki

Kaoru-chan/J-Man

Voiced by: Ken Maeda

  • Badass Normal: See Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass below.
  • Catch Phrase: "GUHA!"
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: He can jump several meters in the air and kicks a diamond Nakewameke and breaks it (though he was aiming for its weakpoint).
  • Cloudcuckoolander: This guy has a very strange mind and behavier, to the point when he switches his body with a frog, Love and Miki think he's acting completely normal.
  • The Cloudcuckoolander Was Right: He gives a lot of good advices to other people and has a lot of knowledge.
  • Cool Shades: Never seen without one.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: This guy likes cracking jokes and goofing off with the girls in his doughnut stand and talks with Tarte like nobody's business. However, he's also a secret agent of sorts and can deliver a beatdown to a Nakewameke or at least soften it up for the Cures to finish.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Implied. He is capable of driving very fast to reach a destination in a short time. And along the way, the other passenger in his car, Miki, was screaming her lungs off.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Is totally unbothered by Tarte talking.
  • Fun Personified
  • Hidden Depths: During the day, he's your goofy doughnut stand owner. But when necessary, he's a secret agent. Oh and although he hid it, it looks like he knew who the Cures actually were, even before they formally revealed it.
  • Pungeon Master: Well he's trying. His jokes are terrible.
  • Secret Keeper: He knows Tarte can talk, at least. It's vaguely implied he knows the Cures' identities as well.


Labyrinth

    Lord Moebius 

Lord Moebius

Voiced by: Tomomichi Nishimura

The shadowy leader of Labyrinth, treated as a god by its inhabitants. His goal is to use the power of "Infinity" to bring every single parallel world under the robotic control of Labyrinth. It is actually a Master Computer designed to help manage the lives of its citizens, which it did by brainwashing everyone and taking control of their very souls.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: He is a supercomputer who once decided to take control over Labyrinth, and now he wants control everything in the universe.
  • Astral Projection: After The Reveal, he appears as a gigantic head of hologrammes. He can also create hologrammes to attack.
  • Bad Boss: Moebius is physically and emotionally abusive, especially to Eas, who just wants his recognition.
  • Bald of Evil
  • Big Bad: He's responsible for almost every evil in this seasons.
  • The Computer Is Your Friend: Moebius was a computer created by Labyrinth's citizens to manage the country. He soon decided that his creators were too weak to do anything for themselves and took his assigned function to its logical conclusion.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Love attempts to give him a Last-Second Chance by asking Moebius to seek his happiness. As a machine, Moebius never attempted to do so, so then he decides that his happiness is... kill the Pretty Cures. Cue a failed Taking You with Me.
  • Evil Laugh: Mostly in later parts of the season.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a really deep voice.
  • Eyes of Gold
  • The Faceless: We don't get a good look at him until Episode 45 (though episode 18's next episode preview has an image of him without the blurring effect).
  • Hellish Pupils: Like his agents.
  • Humans Are Bastards
  • Robotic Reveal: In episode 49, after his body is smacked by Happiness Hurricane. Subverted that the robot body is still not his real form.
  • Me's a Crowd: In the final battle he attacks the heroes with energy duplicates of his fake body.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His gigantic head projection has completely red eyes.
  • Shock and Awe: He can fire diamond shaped lightning bolts.
  • Theme Naming: A Moebius strip is a shape that theoretically encompasses more than three dimensions, much like a Klein bottle.
  • Vocal Dissonance: At one point he appears as the Cures' civilian identities... while still using his normal voice.

    Agents 

Eas

Voiced by: Yuka Komatsu

One of the first three Labyrinth agents sent to Earth. Eas is a cold and calculating girl who strives to prove herself worthy of Lord Moebius' attention. She develops a strong rivalry with Love, who has an opposite personality from her own. Her human alias is Setsuna Higashi. Eas is eventually killed by Labyrinth due to her many failures, but is revived as Cure Passion, who is covered in the Pretty Cure section.

Westar

Voiced by: Yasunori Matsumoto

One of the first three Labyrinth agents sent to Earth. Westar is a boisterous bruiser whose unfamiliarity with human social norms often leaves him looking stupid. His plans tend to be direct and unsubtle. His human alias is Hayato Nishi.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Cure Passion, since she was Eas, and Westar still sees in her as his comrade.
  • Badass Cape: Inverted in episode 39, when Cure Passion catches him on his cape.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After the Heel-Face Turn, the first thing he did was coming to protect the Cures who were defeated by Klein-Northa.
  • The Brute: Yes, he is a Dumb Muscle, but his Monsters of the Week he summons are very combat-orientated and often extraodinary large, giving the Precures always a tough time like his comrades do.
  • Blondes are Evil: As Hayato Nishi.
  • But Now I Must Go: At the end of episode 50, Labyrinth is safe enough for him, Shun, and Setsuna to come back.
  • Butt Monkey: Everything he "plans" never end in a good way, and the show makes fun of him. At one point, three of the Cures land on him and then they transform while standing on his back.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: He cannot make two steps in his civilian disguise without attracting a bunch of female admirers, despite being completely oblivious to the reason of this.
  • Determinator: What he lacks in smarts and planning, he makes up for in sheer persistence; he easily carries out more attacks against Pretty Cure than any of the other agents.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's not so smart as Eas and Soular, not to mention Northa. His "plans" are always unsuccessful. And unfortunately, his comrades don't give him any advices even when he asks them.
  • Good Costume Switch: In episode 48, where he receives clothes with light colors.
  • Heel-Face Turn: In episode 48, after being saved by Chiffon.
  • Hellish Pupils: Until his Heel-Face Turn.
  • Hypocrite: He criticizes Cure Berry for saving Cure Passion during a battle because the latter is a traitor and could possibly betray the Precures. Berry's answers that she trusts Passion because she is their friend. Ironically, Westar himself believes in Eas' future return, that means he even believes in her loyalty to Labyrinth at this moment.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: A villainous version. After Eas becomes Cure Passion, Wester is genuinely hurt by the defection and constantly attempts to convince her to return. It never works, but he doesn't stop trying until his own Heel-Face Turn.
  • Laughably Evil: Dear God. This is the guy who tried to be evil, but can't be bothered to read things up or think hard about his plans unless asking Soular or Eas (who in turn made fun of his idiocy). As a result, while his plans have legitimate evil intentions, the way he carries them out is just plain backfire-prone and usually results in a funny episode.
  • Meaningful Name: Nishi means "west". Hayato can mean "falcon person" and may be a reference to the word "hayai" meaning "fast" or "quick". This is part of a Theme Naming with the Labyrinth agents' civilian identities.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal
  • Not Quite Dead: He and Soular are appearantly deleted, but Chiffon rescues them.
  • Redemption Equals Death: The last thing he did before being sucked into a black hole with Souler was push Cure Passion, a former Labyrinth minion who had defected to the Cures, out of harm's way.
  • True Companions: One of the few villains of the franchise who believes in this. He treats Eas and Souler like his friends and even when Eas betrays them, he still calls her "Eas" as a sign of his trust. In episode 31, he even treats the Monster Of A Week like a baseball teammate.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's rather turquoise than blue.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Moebius pulls this on him; it doesn't stick.

Soular

Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura

One of the first three Labyrinth agents sent to Earth. Soular is sly and intelligent, often using meticulous plans that manipulate others. His human alias is Shun Minami.

  • Arch-Enemy: More or less to Cure Berry, mostly in later parts of the series.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After the Heel-Face Turn, the first thing he did was coming to protect the Cures who were defeated by Klein-Northa.
  • Bishie Sparkle: In episode 35.
  • But Now I Must Go: At the end of episode 50, Labyrinth is safe enough for him, Hayato, and Setsuna to come back.
  • The Evil Genius: The reason why he is more dangerous than Westar is that Souler plans are much more effective and they bring much more Fuko energy. His Evil Plans are based of human psychology, and his Monsters of the Week are difficult to defeat, not because of their strength, but because of their special abilities.

Northa

Voiced by: Misa Watanabe

A senior Labyrinth agent sent to Earth to aid their efforts in capturing Infinity. Excessively cruel and sadistic, she uses Despair Energy to grow her powerful Sorewatase monsters. Her human alias is Nayuta Kita... which she rarely uses.

Klein

Voiced by: Kouji Hiwatari

A small, middle-aged man who work as Moebius secretary and assistant. He never shows up to fight the Pretty Cures until the Grand Finale.
