Nagisa Misumi/Natalie Blackstone (Cure Black)
Voiced by: Yoko Honna (Japanese), Rocio Barahona (ENGLISH)
An energetic athlete who's popular with the girls (although she wishes
the love letters she got in her locker were from cute boys instead), Nagisa is a tomboyish middle-class girl who would rather have fun than study. When she makes a wish on a meteor shower for a boyfriend who will love her, she instead meets Mepple and gets the power to become Cure Black. Though she's completely reluctant at first, her compassion for Mepple and Mipple as well as her desire to protect her friends convince her to save the world after all.
- Action Girl
- Bare Your Midriff: But only in the first season—Toei got enough complaints from parents to have her abdomen covered starting with Max Heart.
- Berserk Button: Threaten her friends or her brother, and she'll let you have it for sure.
- Big Eater
- Book Dumb: She is reasonably intelligent, but still not much of a student.
- Boyish Short Hair
- Cannot Spit It Out: Her love for "Fujipi-senpai".
- Catch Phrase: "Arienai!"note
- Club President: In Max Heart, she becomes the lacrosse team captain.
- Cross-Cast Role: As Romeo in Romeo and Juliet (see below). She also does this for a Japanese period play in episode 37 of Max Heart.
- Crossdresser: Happens in at least two episodes: in episode 9, she does this twice—first as a ramen delivery boy, then as a mailman—in an attempt to reclaim Mepple, who had been confiscated, and in a later episode, she gets the part of Romeo in her school's production of Romeo and Juliet.
- Dark Is Not Evil
- Detached Sleeves: As Cure Black.
- Determined Defeatist: No matter how many times she yells "Arienai!", to herself or to other people, she will see through her goal to the bitter end. A Dying Dream in Max Heart finale shows that she already has it since she was a child, implied coming from her own stubborn pride as a sport ace.

- I Just Want to Be Normal
- Idiot Hero
- It's All My Fault: In the first movie.

- Knight Templar Big Sister: Nagisa is the example of all Pretty Cures. Once Gekidrago hurt her Annoying Younger Sibling, she killed the villain in the same episode.
- Light Is Good
- Love Letter Lunacy: From lots of female underclassmen.
- Malaproper: Often gets proverbs wrong, and seems to suffer from slight dyslexia.

- Woman in Black: Duh.
Honoka Yukishiro/Hannah Whitehouse (Cure White)
Voiced by: Yukana (Japanese), Michelle Molineux (English)
Nagisa's complete opposite, Honoka is a star student rumoured to be a super-genius and gets one or two love letters a month from boys. She rejects every one of them, though, because she wants an honest relationship built on mutual respect. Besides the members of the chemistry club, Honoka doesn't have very many friends; she hasn't had anyone over at her house in years and just studies instead, and even her parents are always overseas. When she went into the garden shed at her mansion, she met Mipple and gained the power to become Cure White. She loves the idea of being a Magical Girl
, finding it "exciting".
- Action Girl
- Badass in Distress: She's frequently cornered by the episode's Zakenna, needing Nagisa to come save her. The most obvious instance of this is episode 42, where she's trapped in a dark zone and about to be consumed by darkness, and Nagisa is frantically searching for her all over the city. However, when she's freed, she'll go back to whipping butt for real.
- Beware the Nice Ones: The rare times she actually gets angry, even the fearless Nagisa is in awe of her...
- Big Fancy House
- Big Friendly Dog: Her dog Chuutaro.
- Catch Phrase: "Oh, Nagisa!" when Nagisa gets excited about food.
- Childhood Friends: With Fujipi.

- Dating Catwoman: With Kiriya.
- Detached Sleeves: As Cure White.
- Jumped at the Call
- The Lancer
- Light Is Good
- Lonely Rich Kid: However, she is very accepting of her parents being away for long and hardly ever complains about it.
- Magic Skirt
- The Matchmaker: Honoka really likes playing Cupid between Nagisa and Fujipi.
- Meaningful Name: In the dub, she's called Hannah Whitehouse. (For reference, Yukishiro is "Snow-castle" — which is a Punny Name, as shiro also means "white".)
- Platonic Life Partners: With Fujipi.
- Pungeon Master: Has a propensity to make puns in episode previews.
- Raised by Grandparents: Since her parents are frequently away, she's lived most of her young life with her grandmother.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Nagisa's Red.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Nagisa.
- Signature Move: Aside of her powers with Cure Black; Cure White is the only one who has a tendency to grab the enemy and then judo-throws it.
- Spock Speak: She often lapses into scientific talks and jargons when she finds something interesting to her. Many non-science club members can't understand what she's talking about but after awhile, Nagisa of all people can somehow apply her long-winded theories and advice into coherent, though laconic, actions.
- Tareme Eyes: Only in civilian mode. Her eyes become a bit more "normal"-looking as Cure White, and her personality becomes a bit less soft-spoken to match.
- Teen Genius
- This Is Unforgivable!: Another catchphrase.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Nagisa's Tomboy.
- True Blue Femininity
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Her parents are art dealer than travel the world for the entire year and only come home in her birthday. They seem to realize this, but can't just drop their job off; trying to make it up with her by pampering Honoka in those little time they have together.
- Woman in White: Duh.
- Yamato Nadeshiko
Hikari Kujou (Shiny Luminous)
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Japanese), Roger Rhodes (English)
Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (Japanese), Angie Beers (English)
Pollun & Lullun
Garden of Light
Wisdom, the Guardian
Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno
- Demoted to Extra: He's part of a number of important plot points in the first season, and gives Precure some useful items, whereas in MaX Heart he's always hanging around the Garden of Light and does nothing more than commenting on the happenings in the human world.
- Eyes Always Shut: Almost always.
- Informed Attractiveness: Mipple finds him attractive, but in the eyes of the audience he just looks slightly less cartoony and more human than the other denizens of the Light.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green.
Voiced by: Hiroshi Naka

Friends and Family
Voiced by: Yuka Tokumitsu
Shougo "Fujipi" Fujimura
Voiced by: Satoshi Katougi
Voiced by: Mikako Fujita
Voiced by: Ai Nagano
Pissard is the first villain
to appear in the franchise and he's the weakest of the Dark Five. He resembles a kabuki.
He's the stereotypical brute of the Dark Five who just relies on power instead of intelligence. However, he uses Zakennas
in a very creative way.
- The Brute
- The Ditz: Nagisa may not be the brightest bulb in the series, but Gekidrago is way, way dumber. At one point, he is easily tricked into giving back one of the Prism Stones; it takes him a long time to realize this.
- Dumb Muscle: The dumbest example in the whole franchise.
- Kick the Dog: In his final episode, he attacks Nagisa's little brother Ryouta simply for showing up. Nagisa does not take kindly to this.
- One-Winged Angel: He fuses with Zakenna in several occasions.
- Too Dumb to Live: Giving Mepple back to Nagisa was a phenomenally stupid move. Unlike Pissard, he dies two episodes later.
Voiced by: Sakiko Uran
The only female member of the Dark Five and she uses several tricks to steal the Prism Stone. She's also Kiriya's older sister.
- Dark Chick
- Evil Redhead
- Femme Fatale
- Genre Savvy: She was the first among her peers to figure out that you can actually dodge the Pretty Cure Marble Screw, as well as the first to figure out that keeping the two Cures from touching pretty much negates all of their finishing moves. She narrowly avoids being Dangerously Genre Savvy by virtue of not quite understanding the absolute infallibility of The Power of Friendship in a magical girl show. She also almost avoided the classic Imposter Forgot One Detail in the Spot the Impostor by stealing ahead of time the perfume Honoka had made earlier at school and having at hand enough information to confuse Nagisa. Had it not been for a very criptic detail about Nagisa that Honoka only knew because they had switch journals several episodes ago, Nagisa would not have been able to discover her.
- Kick the Dog: She does this several times (mostly by brainwashing or otherwise hurting innocent civilians), most notably when she brainwashes the two girls who were pretending to be Pretty Cure into attacking the real Pretty Cure.
- One-Woman Wail Actually, it's more like One Little Brother Wail, but the feeling is the same.
- Pet the Dog: In her own way, she truly cares about her brother.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can transform into every person she wants, from Honoka to old men.
The youngest member of the Dark Five; a teenage boy who appears younger than the heroines and he goes undercover as a first year student in Verona Middle School. He develops a romantic relationship with Honoka aka Cure White, that's why he's confused about his feeling towards Honoka and his duty as an inhabitant of the Dotsuko Zone. He volutarily gives his Prism Stone to the Pretty Cures and excepts his punishment in the Dotsuko Zone. However, he is Not Quite Dead and rescues the girls during the Grand Finale. It seems that he's reincarnated as a human after that.
- Creepy Child
- Dating Catwoman: Honoka has a crush on him.
- Disney Death: He returns in the last episode as a normal human.
- Emotionless Boy: Most of the time.
- Heel-Face Turn
- Icy Blue Eyes/Creepy Blue Eyes
- Kick the Dog: Tears a love letter in pieces which is given by a girl who likes him. When Honoka hears about that, she scolds him for that, and he eventually apogolizes to the girl. In his case, it makes sense, since he has his heart set on Honoka.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Just changing his eye color and he looks like a normal boy. However, because the girls don't know him before he entered their school, they believe he's human until he reveals himself.
- Redemption Equals Death: Well, not really, but it sure seemed so...)
- Villainous Breakdown: He cries loud when Poisonny dies.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Subverted. His human disguise has just brown, normal eyes.
- What Is This Thing You Call Love?: A defining part of his character is his struggle to understand human emotions, him being from a race of Always Chaotic Evil creatures.
The most powerful member of the Dark Five. He is the greatest threat the girls have to face during the first half of the series. After they finally defeats him he returns as a stronger being and nearly manages to steal the Prism Stones and kill the Pretty Cures. However, before he could do so, Jaaku King kills him, just because Illkubo might damage the Prism Stones.
- Bald of Evil
- The Dragon: To Jaaku King. He's such a massive step-up from the Quirky Miniboss Squad that he pretty much ignores Pretty Cure during their first "battle", and utterly curb-stomps them when he decides to fight back in the second.
- Expy: Doesn't he remind you of Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z?
- Hero Killer: He was very close to kill the Pretty Cures, but Jaaku King just killed him before Illkubo could do it.
- Invincible Villain: Spends several episodes easily defeated the Pretty Cures while looking the Prism Stones, and no matter what they do they can't beat him. His initial defeat only happens because he managed to steal Prism Stones and their power was too much for him to control.
- Knight of Cerebus
- One-Winged Angel: He fuses with Zakenna to get stronger.
- No Sell: Does this on their first encounter.
The Seeds Of Darkness (Juna, Regine,and Belzei Gertrude)
The Seeds of Darkness are three elite minions of Jaaku King. After his first death, his power awakens them from their human state into their true forms. They live in the mansion with their parrot

- Anti-Villain: Type 2
- Battle Aura: Blue for Juna, red for Regine, and purple for Belzei.

- Villains Out Shopping: They brush their teeth, have a perfectly not monster pet parrot, take photos in their human form and put them in frames and clocks, and sleep in pajamas and wear bunny slipers. Their life outside antagonizing the Cures is surprisingly normal.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Belzei.
- Your Days Are Numbered: Like the Dark King, they will eventually be consumed by the Power of Destruction.
Shiten'ou (Circulas, Uraganos, Viblis, and Baldez)
The four new warriors of Jaaku King and the guardians of Hikaru, the boy in the mansion and Jaaku King's "life".

- Hair-Trigger Temper: Viblis
- Hot-Blooded: Uraganos
- Mama Bear: Viblis for Hikaru.
- One-Winged Angel: In the Grand Finale, Baldez transforms into a human sized version of Jaaku King (well, he's still taller than average people) and later he transform fully into Jaaku King.

- Pet the Dog: With Hikaru.
- Purple Is Powerful: Baldez. Despite his brown suite, he is more associated with purple and he's the strongest dragon of the series.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Viblis and Baldez.
- Rock-Paper-Scissors: In episode 16, when Circulas, Uraganos and Viblis argue about who will fight the heroines this time, Baldez proposes that they should decide this with rock-paper-scissors. It's off-screen though, but the winner of the four is... Uraganos.

Despite the fact he can become Jaaku King, he is an innocent boy and enjoys experiencing life; however, the Shiten'ou isolate him from the world that's why he is often bored in the mansion. He has also a mysterious connection with Hikari aka Shiny Luminous, the "life" of the Queen of Light. After Jaaku Kings final death, he's reincarnated and becomes Hikari's little brother and Akane's other cousin.
Jaaku King/Dark King
The ultimate evil and the biggest threat in the entire series. He's the ruler of the Dotsuko Zone and owns its Power of Destruction. Ironically, it destroys himself, too, which is why he wants the Power of Creation to stay himself alive. He and his minions invade the Garden of Light and steal five of the seven Prism Stones that contain the Power of Creation. After being defeated twice in the first season, he stays "somehow" dead for almost the entire second season. The Shiten'ou try to resurrect him for the second time. Hikaru is his "life," while his other part is Baldez.
- Apocalypse Maiden: His mere existence releases the power of destruction which destroy everything around, and eventually even him unless he takes the power of creation.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever
- Bad Boss: He often scolds his subordinates, and killing Illkubo who is about to kill the Pretty Cures for just a stupid reason says enough.
- Back from the Dead: Twice. First when revived by the Seeds of Destruction, and second when Baldez into a new Dark King.

- The Dreaded
- Eldritch Abomination: He's the personification of destruction.

- Hijacked by Ganon: Twice.
- Kick the Dog: He absorbs the Giant who is already suffering from the great Power of Creation.
- Large and In Charge: Most of his minions are human sized. He's the size of a building.
- Orcus on His Throne: He can't move his location in the Dotskuo Zone without the Power of Creation, [[spoiler: though as the Seeds of Destruction found out, he call pull other things into the Dotskuou Zone.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Killing Illkubo is the most foolish idea he has got. If that has never happened, the Pretty Cures would be dead and he would gain the Power of Creation. It ultimately made no difference since they could only beat him with the Queen's help in that battle.
- Not So Different: The Queen said that they have only one difference, to believe in the future or to control the future.
- Omnicidal Maniac: His only concern is making sure the Power of Destruction doesn't kill him, he's perfectly fine to let it destroy everything else.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Taking You with Me: After his second defeat from the Pretty Cures, he makes sure that the Queen dies with him.
- Too Dumb to Live: See Nice Job Fixing It, Villain. It eventually kills him for the first time.
