    Main Characters 

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.

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".

    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.

    Dotsuko Zone 


Voiced by: Hiroki Takahashi

Pissard is the first villain to appear in the franchise and he's the weakest of the Dark Five. He resembles a kabuki.


Voiced by: Kouji Ishii

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.


Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi

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.


Voiced by: Issei Futamata

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)

Voiced by: Yasunori Matsumoto (Juna), Rika Fukami (Regine), Tomomichi Nishimura (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 and Zakenna butlers, and they resurrect their master. However, They have their own will and betrays Jaaku King by gaining the Power of Creation for themselves. After succeeding, they fuse together and become the Giant who is later absorbed by Jaaku King.

Shiten'ou (Circulas, Uraganos, Viblis, and Baldez)

Voiced by: Hitoshi Bifu (Circulas), Wataru Takagi (Uraganos), Ai Kobayashi (Viblis), Kenichi Ono (Baldez)

The four new warriors of Jaaku King and the guardians of Hikaru, the boy in the mansion and Jaaku King's "life". They keep him from the world and observe his growth while they try to kill the Pretty Cures and Shiny Luminous. Their goal is the resurrection of Jaaku King. Unlike the other villains in this series, they last until the Grand Finale.

Hikaru Kujou

Voiced by: Haruhi Terada

The mysterious boy in the mansion and the "life" of Jaaku King. The Shiten'ou keep him in the mansion and observe his growth and they protects him from the Pretty Cures and Shiny Luminous. 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

Voiced by: Kenichi Ono

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.
  • Big Bad
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Yes, they did! Jaaku King, with three consecutive defeats, you've reached a new low for an Eldritch Abomination...
  • Disc One Final Boss: This and the True Final Boss since he keeps coming back.
  • The Dreaded
  • Eldritch Abomination: He's the personification of destruction.
  • The Faceless: Until Baldez "evolves" into Jaaku King.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Debatable; what's accepted among the fan community is that his life makes the turn when he splits from him in the final episode of Max Heart, becoming Hikaru Kujo.
  • 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.
