She stays in Ruby's Kira Kira Shop while in Jewel Land. She goes by the codename Shiny Pink, though she doesn't have good fighting skills like the rest of the group. She is an expert when it comes to decorating things with shiny jewels and decors.

  • Aerith and Bob: Unlike Blue Knight, it's not lampshaded.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In episode 50, after recovering from her shock, she saves her teammates who were under attack by Kaiser.

  • Eleventh Hour Superpower: Synchs with Ruby to create her Jewel of Fate in episode 51.

  • Hair Decorations: She wears different ones with every outfit.

He lives in a tree house during his stay in Jewel Land. He goes by the codename Burning Red and has exceptional fighting skills with his fists.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Kaiser mind-breaks him into evil in episode 48 by convincing him that his brother hates him.

  • Colourful Theme Naming
  • Curtains Match the Window: Red eyes and hair.
  • Declaration of Protection: During the incident where Midori was left alone in the forest, he yelled at the mountain to give him back to him and that he'd never leave him alone again.
  • Decoy Protagonist: Because he's The Leader, and the first to introduce himself.
  • Deus Exit Machina: Because he's the strongest member and immune to Coal's clouds, he's frequently away from the group and their adventures and only shows up when things are really desperate for them. The in-story reason is that he is training somewhere.
  • Eleventh Hour Superpower: Synchs with Angela to create his Jewel of Fate in episode 51.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Episode 48.

  • Foreshadowing: The Deco Stones have no clue what his Jewel of Fate might be, but the audience gets hints as early as episode 15 by watching his interactions with Angela which are parallel to the other, more certain relationships.
    • Red Herring: Since he interacts more frequently with Ruby than the other Jewelpets, some might think she is bonded to him.
  • For Great Justice: He loves to rant on and on about justice.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His teammates and the Jewelpets are annoyed by his personality, and start resenting him when they hear about his story with Midori.

  • Hot-Blooded: All the time.
  • Hot Paint Job: The outfit he gets after creating his Jewel of Fate.
  • Idiot Hero: He's not terribly intelectual and runs entirely on passion.
  • Japanese Delinquents: His evil self in episode 48.
  • Large Ham: BURNING!!!
  • The Leader: A definite type III given his personality.
  • Leitmotif: An action-y theme which wouldn't be out of place in an old-school Super Robot Genre anime.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Retsu' means 'violent' and the 'aka' in 'Akagi' means 'red'.
  • Never My Fault: Since he believes himself to be the personification of justice, he can't even fathom when things are his fault. This affects most significantly his relationship with Midori.
    "I am righteous!"
  • Pride: Can't apologize to Midori for leaving him in the forest, since he doesn't believe it's his fault. Refusing to admit it leads to him becoming corrupted by Kaiser.

Voiced by: Ao Takahashi (Twinkle), Yuko Minaguchi (Sunshine), Nozomi Sasaki (Kira Deco), Aki Toyosaki (Happiness)

Happiness version.
Jewelina is the queen and God of Jewel Land in Twinkle. She is the most powerful magician in Jewel Land and created the Jewelpets a long time ago from the positive traits of humans. She also created the Jewel Star crown and the Jewel Star Grand Prix. She was the one who sent Fealina to Earth, where she met the man who'd become the father of her children. Alma thinks Jewelina is responsible for Fealina's death and wants to take revenge against her.

In Sunshine, she remains the supreme ruler of Jewel Land, with much more emphasis put on her maternal status towards the Jewelpets. She's fairly immature and can be over-dramatic, but takes any threat to Jewel Land quite seriously.

In Kira Deco, Jewelina created the Jewelpets through the Mirror Ball. She likes to dance, doing the Go Go dance together with the Jewelpets. However after the Mirror Ball was destroyed and the Deco Stones were scattered all over the planet, she turned to stone due to sadness.

In Happiness, Jewelina is the young ruler of Jewel Land and also the Headmaster of the Jewel Academy, who gave Ruby and her friends the Magical Jewel Box. She assigned Ruby to make friends and to open a Jewelpet Cafe right beside the cafeteria. She is also concern about the Red Moon incident and investigates on how to stop it.

Despite his antics, his magical level is about the same level as Jewelina's. He's Rin's partner. During the Jewel Star Grand Prix, he's revealed to have several siblings, all of which strongly resemble him. The difference is in the color of the clothes and some mannerisms.
