Pretty Cure

     Pretty Cure 5 

Nozomi Yumehara (Cure Dream)

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

An airheaded girl who can't seem to concentrate on just one thing and pretty much talentless and had no idea about what she really wanted, although she believed in the importance of reaching out for her dream. She's a second year student in L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières. She bumped into Coco in her school's library and after an encounter with the Nightmare, she was chosen to become Cure Dream and decided that she's going to restore Coco's Palmier Kingdom and see through it to the end... this time not losing sight of that. Along the journey, as Coco posed as their teacher, Nozomi also discovers her own dream that she'll reach out one day: to become a teacher.

Tropes associated with Nozomi:

  • Action Girl: She's a strong all-rounder fighter, and her attacks are strong enough to usually destroy the Monster of the Week.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: It's never outright stated, but she demonstrates several symptoms of ADHD
  • Badass Adorable: She's a real sweetie and is willing to be friends with almost anyone. She also leads the team to destroying two evil organizations attacking the world.
  • Bare Your Midriff: As Cure Dream, though not anymore in Go!Go!, thanks to a Frilly Upgrade.
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, do not mistreat your subordinates, or even kill them because they're of no use to you anymore in front of Nozomi. She'll not be so forgiving like usual, consider you crossing the Moral Event Horizon and show no mercy. Shadow learned it the hard way.
  • Big Eater: She'll eat anything in front of her and lots of it.
  • Catch Phrase: "Watch it, watch it, watch it, okay?" note  and "It's decided!" note 
    • If she says "Okay!" in the beginning, expect her to finish with, "It's decided!"
  • Character Development: Nozomi at the beginning is a scatterbrain hopeless with everything, be it studying, paying attention, athleticness or whatever. Over time, she starts paying attention more to her studies, resulting better grades and in the middle of GoGo!, capable of tutoring Rin's younger siblings.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: During her daily life she's an idiot that often needs to rely on her friends to get anything done. During battle she's a walking force of destrction, both physically and magically.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Note to the enemy: if you're lucky, you'll have her as an opponent and ultimately be spared. But one word of advice: don't be an Omnicidal Maniac, let alone murder your own Dragon as having outlived her usefulness, because Everyone Has Standards, even the most forgiving.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Nozomi's crux of Character Development is this. The reason why she has such a short attention span was because she's always looking for what she wanted to do (getting kicked out of various clubs were because it took her quick enough to realize those are not what she wanted). After meeting Coco and deciding to help the Palmier Kingdom, Nozomi slowly starts to realize that she likes helping people the best and put attention to it, and after a 'tutoring' from Coco and seeing him teach her, she finally realizes her dream to be a teacher, to help those in academical trouble (like she was before). And now she's the Goddess of it!
    • This is actually called back in Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 3: she's trapped inside a dream world, living out her dream of being a teacher... and promptly realizes this isn't what she wants and proceeds to kick herself out of it and kick the other Cures out of their dream worlds in the process! She wants her dream, but she'll get it her own way.
  • The Ditz: She's absentminded, gets distracted easily, struggles to get even acceptable grades, and misses the obvious even when its staring right at her, like when she misses Milky Rose's identity right after she transforms into her true form right in front of Nozomi.
  • Expressive Hair
  • Genki Girl
  • Girlish Pigtails/Odango
  • Heart Beat-Down
  • Heavy Sleeper
  • Idiot Hero
  • Interspecies Romance: With Coco.
  • Jumped at the Call: Before she even knew there was a call to jump at!
  • The Leader: Types III and IV. The other Cures unanimously chose her to fill this role because she was the one that brought them together to be Pretty Cure in the first place. Not that she'll claim she's the leader. She thinks they don't need one anyway.
  • Lethal Chef
  • Meaningful Name: Nozomi = 'hope', 'Yume' = dream. Also doubles as a Prophetic Name.
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: Whenever she shouts her Catch Phrase, she points upwards with her left hand in a way that her thumb and finger together make a reverse L shape to the viewer. See it here.
  • Mundane Utility: At first, she wanted to use the Dream Collet to... get her homework done!
  • The Nose Knows: Her nose is so good that she can smell crépe's smell on a little part of a flyer.
  • Pink Means Feminine
  • Plucky Girl: "I am not giving in to despair!"
  • Tareme Eyes: More blatantly so than anybody else.
  • The Power of Love: How she breaks Coco out of his brainwashing.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She is the first one in the franchise, starting the trend of having optimistic pink-haired girls as the main characters.
  • This Loser Is You: At least at first, as she's extremely scatterbrained and can't seem to concentrate. However, by the time Character Development kicks in, Nozomi starts moving away from this, as she becomes more responsible and tries her best to reach out for her dreams.
    • Also unlike Tsubomi later, Nozomi kind of subverts this. When she becomes Cure Dream, she didn't flail around like a clueless ditz, she was pretty capable into immediately getting into combat. It's just that when she's just Nozomi that she's sucking in life (until Character Development above).
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Milk/Kurumi. They argue a lot, but they become eventually close friends.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist

Rin Natsuki (Cure Rouge)

Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi

Nozomi's best friend since childhood. Rin is down-to-earth and slightly sarcastic compared to Nozomi, but they're best friends and Rin worries about her greatly. She's good at every sports, but decided to concentrate on soccer/futsal. She becomes Cure Rouge after witnessing Nozomi fighting it and despite not wanting to get involved with such crazy thing, she decided to go through it out of her worry with Nozomi. Despite her tomboyish exterior, Rin also indulges in feminine hobbies, such as accessory-design.

Tropes associated with Rin:

Urara Kasugano (Cure Lemonade)

Voiced by: Mariya Ise

A freshman in L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières school and an idol in training. Due to her busy schedule, Urara usually kept to herself, and her shy attitude doesn't help, although when situation calls it, she can ham things up. However, Nozomi barges into her life trying to befriend her and after an encounter with the Nightmare, her desire to protect her new friends led her to become Cure Lemonade. Afterwards, with her new friends, Urara began her journey not just as a Pretty Cure, but also evolving into a world-class idol.

Tropes associated with Urara:

Komachi Akimoto (Cure Mint)

Voiced by: Ai Nagano

A third-year student L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières and usually volunteers to manage the library. Komachi is the daughter of the head of a famed sweets shop. She's calm and assuring, but is pretty scary when she snaps. She's also a novel writer, thus easily getting excited over unnatural things. This 'unnatural thing interest' led her to follow Nozomi, witness the Nightmare, and becomes Cure Mint. Aside of her being a Precure, Komachi also got her novel reviewed by Nuts, also developing a crush on him.

Tropes associated with Komachi:

Karen Minazuki (Cure Aqua)

Voiced by: Ai Maeda

A third-year student of L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières and the Student Council President. Karen has a no-nonsense, stoic personality that evokes a cool aura and made her popular, not to mention she's ridiculously rich. However, deep down she is a Lonely Rich Kid, only living with her butler and associating with Komachi mostly. At first she thinks the Pretty Cure thing is a farce, but was forced to believe it when the Nightmare invaded her house. But then she failed to become a Pretty Cure due to her 'do-things-herself' mindset. Despite so, Nozomi continued to bugger her about becoming a Pretty Cure, and after realizing that she wants to protect her friends, Karen is able to become Cure Aqua. During the course of the series, she develops a rapport with Milk and discovers her dream to help those who are sick, and she starts learning on how to become a doctor.

Tropes associated with Karen:

  • Action Girl
  • Adventure Rebuff: In the beginning she thought of becoming Cure Aqua just because she thinks in the end, to do it right, she can't depend on anyone if she wants to do things right... resulting her butterfly VANISH and forced her to watch Bunbee trounce the Cures and get away with the Pinky. It's only after her resolve was to protect her friends instead of doing things herself that she can transform.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Aside of being the tallest of the group and her dark blue hair stand out, in the beginning, she presents herself as the aloof, serious, stoic (albeit caring) girl. She mellows down after becoming a Cure, but the element is still there.
  • Archer Archetype: Gains the "Pretty Cure Sapphire Arrow" eventually, and being the Cure of Intelligence she mostly keeps her calm, cool, collected persona. In a subversion, that attack is usually reserved for finishing blows, she usually resorts into pummeling the enemy with fists and feet before that happens.
  • Big Eater: Funniest thing, she's so ladylike when she eats all of her food.
  • Big Fancy House
  • Cannot Tell a Joke: When the gang goes vacationing in her mountain resort, she tries to joke that her family owns everything in the mountain range; they take her seriously, much to her embarrassment. Jiiya, however, is driven to tears that his mistress is even telling jokes now.
  • Cross-Cast Role: When sent to the Urashima Tarou's world by Shibiretta, Karen got saddled with the role of the titular character, and the kids who 'tortured' the turtle (Milk) refer her as "onii-chan", to her puzzlement.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Starts out as your typical cold, stoic, but Lonely Rich Kid, opening only to Komachi. Thanks to Nozomi 'barging in' to her life and becoming Cure Aqua, she starts opening up to more people. According to her butler, she's a lot livelier afterwards.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Milk, probably. About as likely as Syrup/Urara.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Plays this role in episode 34 (which even has in its title "White Knight Karen"). In order to protect Milk, she sword-fights Hadenya while riding a white horse.
  • Lady of War
  • Lonely Rich Kid
  • Making a Splash
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Her Aqua Ribbon gains a sword form for the horseback duel with Hadeenya.
  • The Ojou
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow
  • Refusal of the Call: At first, after failing to transform.
  • The Smart Girl
  • Student Council President: A lot of her episodes have this as a focus, but it falls to the background in Go Go.
  • Took A Level In Cheerfulness: Since becoming friends with Nozomi and the rest, as noted by Jiiya.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Grape juice.
  • True Blue Femininity
  • Tsurime Eyes:
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Rin.
  • Water Is Blue
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Despite her westernized style or wealth, Karen is pretty much the closest one we can get, she's loyal and protective to her friends and will bet on everything to defend them and her home. Also, her 'dream marriage' scenario is also the only one that follows the traditional style.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Deserves a mention for literal blue hair.

  • Childhood Marriage Promise: Crepe believes she has this with Coco.
  • Culture Clash: Coco had no clue that sharing food with Crepe counted as a marriage proposal in her culture.

Antagonists

     Nightmare 

Girinma

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama

The first villain to appear in the series. Girinma is one of Bunbee's three subordinates. His true form is a humanoid praying mantis. After many defeats, Bunbee gives him the black card which is actually a black Kowaina mask, and despite risking to lose his personality, he puts the mask on it to prove his loyalty and becomes a Kowaina.

Tropes associated with Girinma:

Gamao

Voiced by: Akio Suyama

He's one of Bunbee's subordinates, until he deserts from Nightmare after his first defeat. He always try to get payment from different jobs to buy money, but he never keeps a job. His true form is a humanoid toad. Kawarino tricks him by offering him a high ranked job in Nightmare, but the black Kowaina mask transforms him into a Kowaina.

Tropes associated with Gamao:

Arachnea

Voiced by: Yoko Soumi

Bunbee's female subordinate, but she doesn't respect him much. Her true form is a humanoid spider. Kawarino gives her the black Kowaina mask to give her a last chance, becoming a Kowaina in the end.

Tropes associated with Arachnea:

Bunbee

Voiced by: Wataru Takagi

Bunbee is the boss of Girinma, Gamao and Arachnea. His true form is a humanoid bee. He suffers from his department's failures and he's often criticized by Kawarino. After Gamao deserted Nightmare and Girinma and Arachnea's deaths, his department is disbanded and he becomes the subordinate of the members of the second department. He confronts Kawarino about his sneaky methods, but he's almost killed by him. After the defeat of Nightmare, he joins Eternal in the sequel, working as a subordinate for several villains, but ultimately leaving them and he becomes an ally of the heroines.

Tropes associated with Bunbee:

Hadenya

Voiced by: Kazue Komiya

The female and arrogant member of the second department who enjoys to boss Bunbee around. Her true form is a humanoid bird. After several defeats, Kawarino forces her to wear a black Kowaina mask, becoming a Kowaina herself.

Tropes associated with Hadenya:

Bloody

Voiced by: Eiji Maruyama

A veteran member of the second department who always transforms rooms into Kowainas. His true form is a humanoid bat. He was also Kawarino's previous superior. After several defeats, Kawarino puts a black Kowaina mask on his face and traps him in the darkness, but in the Grand Finale, Bloody comes back and drags Kawarino with him down.

Tropes associated with Bloody:

Kawarino

Voiced by: Hiro Yuki

Kawarino is Desparaiah's secretary, and one of the three core members in the second department. He's sneaky, feels no sympathy to anyone, but the most powerful employee of Nightmare. His true form is a gigantic humanoid chameleon.

Tropes associated with Kawarino:

  • Animal Motif: Chameleon.
  • Badass: Even in his human form, he can stop villains who wear the black Kowaina masks. And his true form is much stronger than their monster forms. Not to mention that he can temporarily concetrate his enemies' powers in his tails.
  • Deceptive Disciple: Was once Bloody's henchman, but...
  • The Dragon: To Despariah.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: Is a much more dangerous and active threat to the Pretty Cure 5 than his boss.
    • The Heavy: He's responsible for the invasion and destruction of the Palmier Kingdom, he manipulates and abuses all other villains, and he's the one who makes Desparaiah's wish coming true. And if the Palmier Kingdom was never destroyed, the Pretty Cure 5 wouldn't even exist.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Despariah was contemplating that there's more than despair and prepares a Heel-Face Turn, Kawarino reforms himself and rants on why Despariah won't get into despair again.
    • For the Evulz: Due to this, it casts judgment in what he claims of doing it for Despariah, he's probably liking spreading despair because he personally likes it.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Averted. His voice is so high, you can mistake him for a woman or having a female seiyuu. Even in his true form, his voice is still very high.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Beware if he ever opens them.
  • Hope Crusher: He takes delight in crushing hopes and inflicting despair (not that you'll see him laugh in joy for it), even his Nightmare Mask is designed to inflict one. When he saw Desparaiah trying to stop being one, he flips.
  • Identical Stranger: In the epilogue of GoGo!, Bunbee has a lazy employee named Shiri who looks like Kawarino.
  • Karmic Death: He was dragged down to hell by Bloody, whom he previously sent to hell after outliving his usefulness.
  • Kissgusting: His reaction in Episode 31, when Hadenya blows a kiss to him.
  • Mask of Power: Averted. He doesn't use the Black Kowaina masks, but he absorbs them in form of the black cards.
  • Meaningful Name: Kawarino is derived from 'Kawaru', meaning 'to change'. Thus, his One-Winged Angel forms a giant, humanoid chameleon.
  • Mighty Glacier
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Maybe if he never revealed the fact that Nightmare's majority of employees are Palmier Kingdom citizens wearing his Despair Mask, just to rub on Coco and Nuts' spirit, then both of them wouldn't have to come a conclusion that they don't need the Dream Collet at all to rebuild the Palmier Kingdom, thus turning the tables against him as it enables them to encourage the citizens to follow the Precures' example of not giving in to despair.
  • One-Winged Angel: See Meaningful Name.
    • Subverted, since it's just his true form like the other villains and he doesn't transform into a monster with a black Kowaina mask like the others.
  • Perpetual Smiler
  • Prehensile Tail: He has two of them and uses them for defence and offense. He can even temporarily concetrate his enemies' powers in his tails.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sometimes, his eyes glow completely red.
    • In his true form, his eyes are light red instead of white. I'm not talking about his iris.
  • Softspoken Sadist: Speaks in a very pleasant tone, but there's a reason why he's considered the most evil in Nightmare.
  • Smug Snake: Oh so very much.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Yes! Pretty Cure 5 is totally Lighter and Softer than the previous season? Think Again. Kawarino's pretty much tops the evil department (at least until the sequel comes forth) even Despariah herself. And he's not played for laughs.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Whoever fails constantly is given the Black Card, which turns into a black Kowaiina mask and when put on, will boost their strength, but make them a mindless monster, then get destroyed by the Cures. He also literally gives one treatment to Bloody.

Desparaiah

Voiced by: Kazuko Sugiyama

Desparaiah is the leader and employer of Nightmare. She's extremely powerful, considering that Kawarino's loyalty to her, and her wish is gaining immortality and eternal youth. She hides her face under a mask until the Dream Collet grants her wish.

Tropes associated with Desparaiah:

  • Barrier Warrior
  • Big Bad: In Yes!5
    • Non-Action Big Bad: Just blocks attacks with a barrier and creates shadow monsters to do the fighting for her.
  • Blondes are Evil: She has dark blond hair.
  • Cool Mask
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Having Cure Dream as your opponent in the final fight? Lucky you!
  • Evil Old Folks: It's implied that she's this before she uses the Dream Collet. Most noticeable when she uses the Dream Collet and and her mask brokes, her voice stops being as hoarse as when she's still wearing the mask.
  • Foil: While she embodies despair, Nozomi personifies hope.
  • Fountain of Youth: After using the Dream Collet.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: As an apology for all the troubles she caused, she let the Cures and Palmier Kingdom citizens to escape while she stayed in the collapsing Nightmare realm, sealing it.
  • Immortality: What she wants most and why she wants the Dream Collet in the first place. She succeeds in gaining this in the Grand Finale.
  • Irony: For all her desire to 'spread despair', she herself is in despair, as she's really fearful to die of old age, thus sought Immortality. This discovery is what led Nozomi to eventually give her a second chance.
  • Meaningful Name: It looks an awful lot like 'despair', doesn't it?
  • Mook Maker
  • Orcus on His Throne: Aside of that time she went out to check on the Cures' power, she sits on her throne all day. The Cures has to confront her to the throne to get her get up... a bit.
  • Vain Sorceress

Tropes associated with Anacondy:

The Director

Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba


Tropes associated with the Director:

  • All Take and No Give: When Coco gives him a speech about how it's more important to create things instead of taking them, he replies that he has no interest in such a thing, and all that matters is the preservation of his collection.
  • Animal Motif: Birds.
  • Badass Armfold: He does this when the five Pretty Cures attack him and he just blocks all attacks with a barrier.
  • Barrier Warrior
  • Big Bad: In Yes!5 GoGo!
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: In his true form. His human form has brown hair.
  • Cool Mask/Cool Helmet
  • Establishing Character Moment: While not exactly in his debut, he makes his case of being a nutjob when he personally pays a visit to Nozomi... then proceeds to level down the entire school area because to him, it has no value, and things without value for him are meant to be destroyed. Thank goodness that it was undone due to No Ontological Inertia.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He couldn't even take hint that Flora rejected him from the Cure Rose Garden because he's trying to use it for his own desires instead of good things.
  • Evil Overlord: Subverted. He is more a museum director than an overlord.
  • It's All About Me: Things of no value are to be destroyed, but he thinks that only he has the right to assign values to anything.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Kind of. He's known to destroy worlds that that he thinks has no values or treasures. If they do, he'll drain the values by taking away its treasures, and once they ran out of values... Boom.
  • One-Winged Angel
  • Orcus on His Throne: His chair even floats. Wherever he moves, he's sitting for almost the whole series.
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Spam Attack: He can fire Hoshina balls.
  • Sphere of Destruction: A gigantic Hoshina ball.
  • Shounen Hair: He looks like a Super Saiyajin in his true form.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time.
  • Winged Humanoid: He has a pair of wings, and later two pairs.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Does this to Anacondy, right after she had declared her love to him, no less. And then, the world too. In case he declares this trope to something, his next course of action is... destroy it.
    • In Anacondy's case, the Director is also pissed that she dared sabotage his efforts to get into the Cure Rose Garden, though he couldn't care less about her reasons and feelings. Oh and beforehand, he delivers a straightforward version to Mucardia... right after he reported about Anacondy's sneaky activities.
