Pretty Cure

    Smile Pretty Cure 

Miyuki Hoshizora (Cure Happy)

Voiced by: Misato Fukuen

The main character and leader of the Smile Precure. Miyuki is an energetic and optimistic girl who loves fairytale books, believing that if she works hard then she too can get a "Happy Ending". Sadly, she is also a bit of a klutz and has a lot of trouble adjusting to her new powers, along with the concept that she has to actually fight.

Tropes associated with Miyuki:

Akane Hino (Cure Sunny)

Voiced by: Asami Tano

A brash and outgoing girl from Osaka. A natural Class Clown, she loves to crack jokes about other people and is quick to befriend the nervous Miyuki on her first day. She is also a keen volleyball player.

Tropes associated with Akane:

Yayoi Kise (Cure Peace)

Voiced by: Hisako Kanemoto

A timid, clumsy girl who is quick to tears, yet also very loyal and diligent. She is a closet anime/gaming/tokusatsu nerd and dreams of becoming a manga artist, but hides this out of fear of being teased.

Tropes associated with Yayoi:

Nao Midorikawa (Cure March)

Voiced by: Marina Inoue

A headstrong and sporty Tomboy with a large family. A natural leader, her reliability and amicability have earned her a great deal of respect from the rest of the student populace.

Tropes associated with Nao:

  • Anime Hair: In Cure form, she wears her hair in a Tomboyish Ponytail and Girlish Pigtails at the same time.
  • Badass Normal: So far, she's the only one of the Precure who've been able to effectively slow down a monster before receiving her powers. While the other girls showed their courage and had some nice tries, Nao used her soccer skills to kick a soccer ball into an Akanbe's face in order to protect her siblings.
  • Berserk Button: Like Rin before her, you do not mess with her family, especially her younger siblings.
  • Big Brother Instinct: The reason she became a Cure.
  • Big Eater: How big? She only ate three bowls of breakfast so to leave room to eat even more on the schooltrip.
  • The Big Guy: The second one, with her Super Speed and the fact that her upgraded special attack is the only one that is melee/direct contact.
  • Blow You Away
  • Catchphrase: "A straight-up bout!"
  • Cool Big Sis
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Establishing Character Moment: Defends Miyuki, Akane, and Yayoi from some upperclassmen who were trying to bully them out of their lunch spot in the courtyard. Eventually they stopped nagging at them once the student council president passed by. When praised for her bravery by Miyuki, Nao simply says that she just told it as it was.
  • Even the Girls Want Her
  • Expy: Another partial one with Rin Natsuki, in her choice of sports, cooking skills, her fear of ghosts and being the Cool Big Sis of her family. Though she has Komachi's color and being childhood friend with the blue one (and instead got Karen's competitiveness instead of Komachi's tranquility, see below on Reika).
    • Her having bright green hair and a gem on her forehead as Cure March led to a few comparisons to Trip. This being before the season started airing and the two turned out to have nothing else in common.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Averted despite being a soccer-playing tomboy, Nao is quite a good cook.
  • Kick Chick: A given as she plays soccer, but her main finisher involves her kicking a compressed ball of air at her opponent, and she often throws kicks when she's fighting one-on-one as well.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: She's the oldest of six (as of Episode 42, seven) siblings.
  • No Indoor Voice: She's one of the loudest of the five. She's louder than the others when she's saying her transformation phrase, her In the Name of the Moon speech or her attack names. And there are other situations where she's pretty loud.
  • Off Model: As Cure March, she sports her earrings attached to the helixes of her ears instead of the earlobes (a trait shared with Sunny), but in Episode 4 she's briefly seen with the normal earring style.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Her Fairy Form in Episode 24.
  • She's Got Legs: Well, she is the one who shows the most leg among the five, in particular in casual clothes.
  • Super Speed
  • Tomboy to Reika's Girly Girl: Magazine scans revealed that she and Reika are childhood friends.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: As her regular self.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?
  • Why Did It Have to Be Bugs?: Or heights. Or ghosts.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

Reika Aoki (Cure Beauty)

Voiced by: Chinami Nishimura

Tropes associated with Reika:

An intelligent and cool girl who acts as the class representative, and the vice-president of the Student Council. In typical Ojou fashion, she comes from a wealthy, traditionalist family. However, she also has a frightening temper if pushed.

  • Action Girl: Her fight against Joker is just one example of her combat prowess.
  • Anime Hair: Gains a wild spiky hair in additon to her long, trimmed original one during Princess Mode. Pretty contrasting to her Yamato Nadeshiko traits.
  • Badass Boast: In Episode 5.
    Reika: I am the vice-president of Nanairogaoka Middle School, Reika Aoki. As vice-president, I cannot overlook your destruction of school property. No.. I, as Reika Aoki, will not forgive you!
  • Catchphrase: "The path of X is a tough one..."
  • The Comically Serious: Not even Reika can escape Smile's comedy.
    • No Sense of Humor: In Episode 17, we see she has absolutely no idea what jokes are or how they work, probably due to her upbringing.
  • Cool Sword: The opening at one point shows her wielding one made of ice, which finally makes an appearance in the series proper in Episode 23.
  • Cross-Cast Role: As Prince Charming for a reenactment of "Cinderella" in Episode 39. Which, inevitably, leads to Les Yay moments with not just Miyuki but also Yayoi.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Ditzy Genius: She's the standard blue Cure; Lady of War and Smart Guy of the team, but she lacks common sense for simpler things like how manzai works and what sarcasm is. In the movie, when Kinkaku and Ginkaku burst through the screen to chase after Nico, she comments the 3D has gone amazing instead of the others' more panicked reaction of having their movie's bad guys become real.
  • Dual Wielding: Gains this ability in Episode 43.
  • Expy: Compared to Umi Ryuuzaki prior to the premiere of the seasonnote . Also, her hairstyle as Cure Beauty somewhat resembles that of Polaris Hilda, while in normal form, it gives vibes of an older Rika Furude.
    • From a previous series, Reika is obviously the stand in for Karen Minazuki, both blue water/ice using Cures that can materialize a Cool Sword, Influental and Rich Student Council President (Reika started out as Vice) and being considered the brain of the team. They also admit at one point in their life that they don't know their goal in life at first. However, Reika is more tranquil like Komachi instead of the strict and (mostly) stoic (and occasionally competitive) Karen.
  • Field of Blades: As shown in her solo fight with Joker, Cure Beauty is capable of turning the whole area into a field of ice in which she can pick any ice to become her sword, if one breaks, she just picks another, akin to the Unlimited Blade Works
  • Girly Girl to Nao's Tomboy
  • Hime Cut: As befits a traditional ojou.
  • An Ice Person
  • Innocent Flower Girl: Not to the extent of Tsubomi, but still.
  • Instant Expert: She is shown to be the quickest to master her powers, as well as other situations, such as being the only one who can pilot Robo Happy because she had practically memorized the book on robots Yayoi had given her earlier.
  • Ms. Exposition: Reika during the school trip has encyclopedic info on everywhere they visit. "You're like a walking guidebook."
  • Ojou: Comes from a wealthy, traditionalist family.
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: In episode 43, Reika lost her powers as Cure Beauty during a fight with Joker because the latter used the former's conflict between quitting being a Cure and disappointing her friends by not studying abroad to drive her into a breakdown.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Her Fairy Form in Episode 24.
  • Running Gag: Minor one: Tends to take the Precures into a ridiculous place (e.g: Mt. Fuji for their headquarters), insisting that this is the 'Path' they should walk... only to be called out on how it has nothing to do with their overall activity, and have her notice with "Oh? Is that so...?" and eventually cancel her plan.
  • The Smart Lancer: She very much contrasts Miyuki in a lot of aspects, she's elegant, calm and smart when compared to the klutzier and less-academically gifted Precures. Also as a (ex-vice) Student Council President, she's usually the one who's more likely to take leadership if Miyuki is unable to, and so far she was also shown to be the second most competent Precure behind full-potential Happy. And she's a walking guidebook.
  • Student Council President: Downplayed. She's the vice-president.She's later elected president in Episode 37.
  • Team Mom: She's usually the one to take notice of the team's welfare and development.
    • Not so Above It All: But it occasionally slips. Like during the Kyoto Trip when she's trying to stop the Cures from doing a pillow fight because it's 'unladylike'... until a pillow lands in her face, in which she joins in anyway.
  • True Beauty Is on the Inside: Insists on this when faced against her Bad End Precure, who's claiming that the world is only for the beautiful (on the outside). This combines with a Meaningful Name or Prophetic Name for her Cure name, Cure Beauty, which also wins her seat as the goddess of the trope.
  • True Blue Femininity
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: A traditionalist Nice Girl with a Hime Cut and a frightening temper. Lampshaded by Akane at the start of the Summer Festival in Episode 26.


Candy (Royale Candy)

Voiced by: Ikue Otani

A young fairy from the world of Märchenland. She is searching for the scattered Cure Decor, which can be used to save her world.

Tropes associated with Candy:


Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi

Candy's older brother. Inexplicably a ninja/samurai.

Tropes associated with Pop:

  • Bishōnen: In Episode 33. He looks so good that Miyuki and Yayoi apparently fall for him.
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't like being called cute, because he feels it's unmanly. When he's called cool by one of the girls (usually Yayoi), however, it causes him to blush and bump into whatever is behind him.
  • Catchphrase: "I am a man. Calling me cute is most rude!" Always accompanied by Stock Footage of him in samurai garb, standing on a rock as waves crash against it.
    • And, in Episode 33, "I go wherever the wind and my mind take me. I am the vagabond, Pop!" Accompanied by the same footage, but with him in human form.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In human form, though the tail still doesn't match.
  • Japanese Pronouns: He uses "sessha", the humble archaic pronoun usually associated with ninjas and samurais. Apparently it also works for plushie-lion-looking ninja-samurai-fairies.
  • Little Bit Beastly: His human form in Episode 33 gets to keep the ears and tail of his true form.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Talking, shapeshifting, fox-lion samurai-ninja-fairy.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: with Candy.
  • Verbal Tic: "~de gozaru."
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: So far has transformed into a stapler, an alicorn that was called a pegasus for the entirety of Episode 21 note , a shield (twice!), a Big Badass Bird of Prey, and a human.

Bad End Kingdom

A world inhabited by all the villains of fairy tale stories. They wish to lead Earth towards a Bad End by draining the happiness and hope from its people, in the form of "Bad Energy". Their current goal is to collect enough Bad Energy to revive their leader, the King of Evil "Pierrot", who has enough power to cause a worldwide disaster called "Worst Ending".

    Big Bad Three 


Voiced by: Tomoyuki Shimura

An agent modeled after The Big Bad Wolf from the "Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood".

Tropes associated with Wolfrun:


Voiced by: Hiroshi Iwasaki

An agent modeled after the Oni (ogre) from the Japanese fairy tale of Momotaro.

Tropes associated with Akaoni:


Voiced by: Mina Tominaga

An agent modeled after the Wicked Witch from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Tropes associated with Majorina:



Voiced by:' Yuji Mitsuya

An agent modeled after a Villainous Harlequin. Although he is treated as an annoyance by Wolfrun, Akaoni and Majorina, he provides them with additional powers and seems to be working on his own secret agenda.

Tropes associated with Joker:



Voiced by: Tessho Genda

The Big Bad of this series, and the ultimate enemy of Märchenland and the current Precure.

Tropes associated with Pierrot:

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In his original released form. In Episode 47's ending, he becomes as big as BLACK HOLE!
  • Big Bad: And there is neither a Bigger Bad nor a Man Behind the Man.
  • Bishounen Line/Super Mode: His form in Ep. 47 is this compared to his appearance in Ep. 23, where he was significantly weaker and less humanoid in appearance.
  • Dark Is Evil: His dominantly colored in dark purple.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: Pop said his Bad End energy cannon he fires from his mouth in Episode 23 can destroy a planet. This is his weaker form compared to his true power.
  • Flat Character: He's the least developed Big Bad in the entire franchise, suffering from little screentime he gets. He appears only for three episodes, but he's just shown to be plain evil and just powerful without notable motivations or personality traits like the others.
  • Humanoid Abomination: His Ep. 47 appearance, in contrast to his Episode 23 appearance.
  • Hope Crusher: He tries to bring the Precures despair, but he always fails in the end.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Like most Big Bads, he uses the posessive pronoun "waga" to introduce himself with his name. Most Big Bads use "watashi" in any other sentences, but Pierrot has so little lines that he never uses a proper first person pronoun.
  • Monster Clown: His first form resembles a clown. His second form resembles a harlequin.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He wants to destroy every world to bring despair.
  • One-Winged Angel: His ultimate form is a face that is as big as the villain Black Hole, making him the biggest villain of all series.
  • Slasher Smile: His default expression.

Bad End Pretty Cure

Voiced by: Misato Fukuen (Bad End Cure Happy), Asami Tano (Bad End Cure Sunny), Hisako Kanemoto (Bad End Cure Peace), Marina Inoue (Bad End Cure March), Chinami Nishimura (Bad End Cure Beauty)

Tropes associated with the Bad End Pretty Cure:

  • Anime Hair: All of them. Their hairstyles are really difficult to duplicate and maintain in real life.

  • Elemental Powers: They share these with their counterparts, right down to having purple-colored versions of their attacks.
  • Elite Mooks: They don't have much personality, they are killed in one episode, and they seem to be weaker than the Hyper Akanbes. Not to mention that the Bad End Trio were much more powerful in their battle.

  • Evil Red Head: Bad End Cure Sunny, being Cure Sunny's Evil Knockoff.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Downplayed. All of them have darker voices than their counterparts, except Bad End Cure Peace maybe.
    • Bad End Cure March's voice isn't much deeper than Cure March's, but it's deep enough to fit this trope closely enough.
  • Expy: Of the Dark Pretty Cure 5.
  • Five-Bad Band/Psycho Rangers
  • Flat Character: They just have one aspect of personality, respectively.
  • Fragile Flower: Subverted with Bad End Cure Peace. She pretends to be emotionally hurt when she lands on top of Cure Peace only to electrocute her when she offers her sympathies.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: They have narrow eyes compared to their good counterparts.
  • Hannibal Lecture: All of them give these to their respective counterparts. They all get silenced when the Cures deliver their Kirk Summations and take them down.
  • It's All About Me: Bad End Cure Happy, who views her own happiness as being what's the most important.
  • Jerkasses: All of them mock, insult, and belittle their counterparts in varying ways For the Evulz. Bad End Peace goes a bit further by actually Trolling Cure Peace.

  • Kill It with Fire: Bad End Cure Sunny wants to burn everything in the world.
  • Lack of Empathy: Bad End Cure Happy, who cares about herself only.
  • Lady of War: Bad End Cure March and Bad End Cure Beauty. The latter more closely fits this trope by being concerned with physical beauty.
  • Large Ham: When calling their attacks. Bad End Cure Beauty calls her attack with a really odd tone.
  • Mirror Match: Joker uses his cards to throw each Cure and her respective Evil Knockoff into isolated dimensions where they will battle one-on-one.
  • Narcissist/The Fighting Narcissist: Bad End Cure Beauty, who considers everything weaker than she is to be ugly (namely, Cure Beauty).
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Their eyes lack pupils where everyone else have them.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Bad End Cure Sunny, who wants to incinerate everything.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: All of them count, but Bad End Cure Sunny loves destruction and desires to burn everything to death.
  • Power Of The Sun: Bad End Cure Sunny describes herself as the sun which burns everything to death.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Subverted. Their attacks are purple, but they are ultimately pushed back by the attacks of their counterparts.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Bad End Cure Happy, Bad End Cure March and Bad End Cure Beauty. The former has pigtails that stretches to her knees, the middle has her hair styled into a ponytail that still manages to reach her waist, and the latter has hers reach to her waist...without being tied up in any way.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: They combine this with Hannibal Lecture.
    • Bad End Cure Peace tells her counterpart that world peace is impossible and that it is something that only a "little princess would spew".

  • Sixth Ranger: They are the latest Bad End Kingdom villains.
  • The Social Darwinist: Bad End Cure March. She believes the strong should attack and eliminate the weak.
  • The Sociopath: Bad End Cure Happy, who admits that seeing others suffer gives her pleasure.
  • The Stoic: Bad End Cure March, just like Cure Beauty. She doesn't even bat an eye even when her counterpart sends her own attack right back at her.
  • Super Speed: Bad End Cure March. She can move just as fast as Cure March.
  • Superpowered Mooks: They don't have much personality, they are killed in one episode, and they seem to be weaker than the Hyper Akanbes, despite having superpowers. Not to mention that the Bad End Trio were much more powerful in their battle.
  • Super Strength: Possibly, but ultimately averted. Bad End Cure Sunny doesn't show this, but as Cure Sunny's copy, she might have had it.
  • Theme Naming: Just add "Bad End" to their Cure names. For the attacks, just replace the Cure names with "Bad End".
  • Trickster Archetype: Bad End Cure Peace. After winning Cure Peace's sympathies, she promptly zaps and mocks her.
  • Troll: Bad End Cure Peace demonstrates this after faking remorse for landing on top of Cure Peace.
  • Too Dumb to Live: They didn't even try getting out of the way of their counterparts' attacks, likely believing they could withstand them. It would explain why they didn't just dodge!
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: They appear at the end of Episode 45 and are killed in Episode 46.
  • Woman in Black: Every single one of them. See Dark Is Evil, above.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Bad End Cure March has green hair, and Bad End Cure Beauty literally has blue hair.
