A motherly and intelligent girl whose tranquil nature belies a fiery temper. She starts the series considering herself plain and unremarkable, especially compared to her older sister. Nevertheless, she embraces her destiny as Cure Draco and discovers her own strength in the process.
The Unfavorite: Hiroko grew up seeing herself as this, due to her inability to measure up to Chiaki. She soon realizes that she always assumed this was the case without ever trying to stand out on her own.
Arbitrary Skeptic: In episode 11, she calls Hiroko and Yasu "gullible and kinda wussy" for believing in ghosts, despite the three of them being Magical Girl Warriors who fight demons and the fact that there's ghostly activity going on right behind her as she speaks.
Lesbian Jock: Technically, bisexual jock, but her love interest is female, and she shows a preference for girls in general. Notably, her main sport is actually the "acceptably feminine" rhythmic gymnastics.
Lethal Chef: Luckily for everyone around her, Izumi doesn't try to cook unless she "has to", but when she does...
Parental Abandonment: Her father died when she was eight (being a Daddy's Girl, she took this very hard), and her mother isn't around very often due to her job. Granted, Yui tries her best to make time for her children, and Yasu is accepting of the situation.
Prince Charming: He mentions having wanted to be this type of hero when he was younger before accepting that "prince who rescues princesses" isn't really a career you can have. He settles for writing a picture book that casts his author avatar as this.
The So-Called Coward: Haruki describes himself as a coward for being afraid of the monsters that Pretty Cure faces. However, he shows little evidence of actual cowardice, and Hiroko sees it as him being overly self-critical.
Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She actually has a pretty generously-sized collection of them and will add another to the pile once in a while. She makes no effort to hide this, but those who don't know her well are pretty surprised to learn about it.
One of the Boys: She mentions having this kind of childhood, although she had more in the way of female friends than Izumi did.
Parental Abandonment: Her mother is dead, and her father sent her to live with her aunt and uncle when she was about nine. She's relatively positive about it now, but she didn't take it very well when she was younger.
Shrinking Violet: Covertly - Shun is good at feigning confidence but has moments where she reveals how shy and socially awkward she really is. She wasn't quite as covert about it while brainwashed, though.
Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Kimiko are cousins who act more like siblings - they usually can't be in the same room for more than a few minutes without bickering with each other, but Shun would do anything to protect Kimiko, and vice-versa.
Sol | Voice Actor: Tohru Ookawa (Japanese), Travis Willingham (English)
Muse's father, a cat capable of transforming into a human man. He worked with the previous incarnation of Pretty Cure and lent his powers to them, allowing them to act as threshold guardians. He sometimes appears to give counsel to Muse or the former Cures.
Astral Projection: His personal power. He doesn't use it for much outside of occasionally checking in on his daughter and Pretty Cure.
A somewhat reclusive teahouse owner and the leader of the previous Cure team. At first glance, she is the model of elegance: quietly strong-willed, graceful and refined. However, she shows a more haunted and lost side in her private moments.
A scientist and the oldest of the Ishii family. She arranged for Hiroko to enter Mirai Academy. She is an unflappable, if somewhat morbid young woman who worries more for the welfare of those around her, especially her teammates, than she would let on.
Nightmare Fetishist: She loves horror films, states that you can "learn a lot" from zombie movies, and thinks spiders and other arachnids - the larger, the better - are the most adorable things ever.
Not So Stoic: She's usually pretty calm and collected, but when a number of Mirai students, including her younger brother are put in mortal danger by Hinyu, she can't hide how horribly distressed she is in the slightest.
A young woman who is best known as the mature and collected radio personality, Maria. Her true self is actually quite bubbly and cutesy. She is a friendly and affectionate person who seems to be in a state of perpetual cheerfulness.
Yuriko Kimura (Cure Tenma) | Voice Actor: Yuu Asakawa (Japanese); Julie Ann Taylor (English)
A childish, somewhat inarticulate mechanic. She is in a romantic relationship with her partner, Shiori, who often reprimands her for her behavior. She and Shiori lost their Cure powers during their last battle, and she's a bit more melancholy than she first appears.
A mousy literature teacher at Mirai Academy. She is kind and agreeable on the surface, but pessimistic and often depressed on the inside, which distresses her partner, Yuriko. She is unsure of the new Cures' power and is reluctant to acknowledge them as her successors.
Devil King Aseimera | Voice Actor: Rintaro Nishi (Japanese), Steve Cassling (English)
The leader of the Devil Kingdom, who spends most of his time yelling at his subordinates and making life a living hell for his subjects. He despises humans and wants to lay waste to Earth, mostly because he can.
Bastard in Sheep's Clothing: Acts like a timid Yes Man around Aseimera and a personable, if sometimes foul-tempered, guy around Kae, and to a lesser extent, her henchmen. He's actually a cold-hearted person who only cares about himself.
Technicolor Fire: Employs this a few times. The floating flames he uses to bait Pretty Cure in episode 12 are blue, and the flames he uses in battle are sometimes blue as well... because fire really does turn that color when it's hot enough.
Powerful, but Lazy: He's the strongest of the Triumvirate but only goes out to challenge Pretty Cure a small handful of times, mostly because he considers them beneath his notice. He uses the Trio to do his work for him, despite their tendency to botch his orders, because they're convenient, and nobody will care if something happens to three "lower-class nobodies".
You Killed My Father: Hinyu's father died at the previous Cure team's hands thanks to Aseimera, giving Hinyu another reason to despise him. Then, it's only a small part of his motivation to become king, with the rest being pure self-interest, and Hinyu does ration that his father dying removed an obstacle between him and the throne.
Tamakushi | Voice Actor: Rei Igarashi (Japanese); Megan Hollingshead (English)
The cold and detached lone female of the Triumvirate. She cannot stand to see people getting along and revels in the suffering of others, be they friend or foe. Many of her plans rely on her shape-shifting abilities in some way.
For the Evulz: She cares less about accomplishing any kind of goal and more about tormenting people as it suits her.
Glamour Failure: Her puppets are all given away by a tell-tale silver ring around their irises.
Glass Cannon: Her puppets have this problem - they could potentially do a lot of damage, but even a normal person can take them out in a few hits. Creating stronger ones takes more of her concentration and causes her more pain if they're destroyed, so it's also a practical measure.
Shapeshifter Default Form: When she isn't using her normal form or imitating someone else, she assumes the shape of an young woman with platinum-blond hair. This is the form she wears while she's patronizing Club Tsukikage.
Soul Power: She can both fight with spirit energy and use it to create convincing "ghost puppets" based on anyone she's seen.
Anti-Villain: Type I. He's as loyal to Aseimera as the other Triumvirate members; however, unlike them, he has actual standards. He hates the idea of torturing innocent people for one - the one time he's ordered to do it, it makes him ill, and he attempts to call off the Dogou responsible. He's also clearly capable of expressing love and kindness, as proven by his relationship with Kamryou.
Real Men Wear Pink: Seimono is the Triumvirate's (seven foot tall) resident muscleman... who is quite the cook and skilled at delicate tasks like sewing. He also wears a pink floral shirt when disguised as a human.
Antivillain: A Type I - although she'll insist otherwise, she just doesn't have the stomach for out-and-out evil. She also balks at the idea of actually destroying Pretty Cure (despite asserting over and over again that she will), preferring a rivalry with them.
Fangirl: She's enamored with the Sentai manga (and anime) Space Team Cross-3 and wants to emulate the series' villains, Team Dark Cross. This never goes well. Her crush on "Hinyu-sama" is also shown to be more fangirlish admiration than anything. It doesn't help that she has little idea of what he's really like, thanks to the way he acts towards her.
Genius Ditz: Despite her usual airheaded and ignorant behavior, she's actually quite skilled at creating magic charms.
Hey You: She pretty much always addresses Pretty Cure in this manner.
Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Again, all of the Trio could be counted as this, but she's the best fit for the position, being the only one who seems to care about being recognized as a real villain.
Squishy Wizard: Relatively speaking - Kae isn't frail, but she isn't as strong or durable, let alone as good at fighting as Pretty Cure; thus, she prefers to stay out of the way and cast magic during fights.
Sue Donym: She creates her alias, "Kaeko Damai" in about fifteen seconds. It shows. And yet she's shocked when people aren't fooled by it...
Talking to Themself: Sometimes appears to do this. She's actually talking to Shahei, but most people aren't aware of that.
Kae's seemingly emotionless twin sister. She seems motiveless and hollow outside but is actually more conflicted that she'd let on. Later on, she takes up the alias of "Yuzuki" to spy on the Cures, which allows her to reevaluate what she really wants.
What Is This Thing You Call Love?: Later admits that she doesn't understand the concept and doesn't think anyone, save her twin sister, could ever value her anyway. Her mind nearly breaks when Haruki is genuinely nice to her without wanting anything in return.
Antivillain: A type IV who has a childishly naive attitude towards his team's "criminal activities" and only acts antagonistic when made to - when left on his own, he tries striking up a friendship with several of his enemies.
A timid and anxious girl who dreams of becoming an idol singer. Her attempt at founding Mirai Academy's first Music Club fell apart after the other members tired of her underconfidence, which she tries to fix with Hiroko's help.
The (seemingly) melodramatic and childish Student Council president. She often comes across as pompous and overconfident but is effective at her job and can be quite on-point when needed.
Ambiguously Gay: She refers to Kaoru as "my wife", play-flirts with her on occasion, doesn't seem upset that the Dogou in episode 8 mistook the two of them for an actual couple, and shows very little interest in men (unless they're dressed as women, and even then...). Her actual sexuality is never confirmed.
Cool Big Sis: She thinks of herself as this for most underclassmen, even referring to herself as "Big Sis" once in a while. She also expresses a wish to have Muse as her actual little sister.
The Student Council's vice-president, who is from a very rich family, although she refuses to let it get to her head. Unlike her childhood friend, Nanami, she's very down-to-earth and not one for childish antics.
Attractive Bent Gender: Pretty on his own, Shinobu makes a very fetching girl when he's trying to look like one.
Dude Looks Like a Lady: To the point of people wondering why the "fourth girl" on the Student Council is wearing a boy's uniform. He uses his delicate, feminine looks to his advantage whenever he cross-dresses.
