This is the character sheet for Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash★Star.
Voiced by: Orie Kimoto
- Big Ol' Eyebrows: Saki has interestingly drawn eyebrows that make hers look thicker than other characters, both in the series and compared to other characters from the entire franchise. Her eyebrows are quite distracting for many fans; the source of that "I want to lick Not-Nagisa's salty eyebrows" meme.
- Boyish Short Hair: While not in her Cure form, she has short hair reminiscent of a boy's.
- Catchphrase: "I'm in top form!"note Looks like she inherits it from her mother.
- Cool Big Sis: In contrast to Nagisa who always argues with her brother Ryota, Saki really loves her little sister Minori. They even share the same bedroom.
- Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair and brown eyes.
- Expy: Of Nagisa.
- Genki Girl: Highly energetic, cheerful and sporty.
- Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Just like Akudaikahn that can't take the fact he creates life well, Saki just simply can't understand Dark Fall's ideology. Raised in a household that recognizes life in everything, destroying only for the sake of it doesn't sit well with her because for her, life is just too precious.
- Light 'em Up: As Cure Bright.
- Locked Out of the Loop: She's the only one of the two duos that has no idea or has suspicion that Kaoru and Michiru are Dark Fall warriors. But it's because of that, she had no doubt on each other's intentions note , only seeing her friends as awkward, but kind-hearted people.
- Malaproper: Whenever Shitataare is involved, often with hilarious results thanks to mispronouncing her name.
- She does the same to Karehaan too, calling him "curry pan".
- Meaningful Name: "Saki" comes from the Japanese verb "saku", meaning "to bloom", while "Hyuuga" can be translated as "facing the sun"
- Tomboy to Mai's Girly Girl
- Trope Maker: Hyuuga Saki is very much an Expy to Misumi Nagisa. Serial Numbers Filed Off would be a more apt trope and had they not been made by the same company, their might have been legal issues. But as Cure Bloom, she has an almost entirely pink outfit which paves the way for every single succeeding Pretty Cure Pink Heroine (except one having a pink outfit and/or pink hair.
Voiced by: Atsuko Enomoto
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: It's not as much as she lacks focus; she has too much focus on things that tickle her fancy, usually her drawings, and it's difficult to distract her out of that. Choppy has to physically shake her out of her trance if that happens.
- Blow You Away: As Cure Windy.
- Curtains Match the Window: Purple hair, purple eyes.
- Expy: Of Honoka.
- Forehead of Doom: Her Cure forms.
- Girly Girl to Saki's Tomboy
- Hyper-Awareness: This girl practically has a photographic memory and good eyes to notice that two people flying under moonlight hundred meters away are her classmates.
- The Klutz: Not her, but her mother. She's an archaeologist that often has sleep attack in the middle of doing something because she's losing sleep from her work. Mai usually is the one who bears the brunt of the damage of her shattered plates and scattered papers.
- Last-Name Basis: She calls everyone except Saki and the Kiryuu sisters with (Last name)-san. The only reason she calls Michiru and Kaoru with their given names is because their surname is the same.
- Little Sister Heroine: Subtle, but it's implied that Mai becomes more responsible and well-mannered than her somewhat indecisive older brother because in the past she used to be an Annoying Younger Sibling. She bonds with Minori because of their shared adoration toward their older sibling and desire to shed said Annoying Younger Sibling stigma for sake of said adoration.
- Meaningful Name: In Japanese "Mishou" is written with the characters for "beauty" and "fly". "Mai" translates to dance, but it can also refer to the fluttering of a bird's wings.
- New Transfer Student: In Episode 1; unique in that she's transferring to come back to her homeland.
- Nice Gal: Soft-spoken, well-mannered, and non-confrontational. She's loyal to her friends to the point of Can't Spit It Out when she saw Michiru and Kaoru as Dark Fall warriors because she can only see them as friends and she is unsure whether telling Saki is a right choice for their friendship.
Voiced by: Kappei YamaguchiA mascot from the Land of Fountains who appeared to Mai and Saki in the past. After meeting the two again, he becomes Saki's partner.
- Cannot Spit It Out: To Choppy. He finally spat it out in an Anguished Declaration of Love in the last episode.
- Mentor Mascot: Briefs Saki on the whole situation with Dark Fall and reveals new things they encounter.
- Non-Human Sidekick: An adorable critter from the Land of Fountains who tags along with Saki.
- Verbal Tic: "~lapi"
- Vitriolic Best Buds: His relationship to Saki can fall under this.
Voiced by: Miyu MatsukiAnother mascot from the Land of Fountains who also appeared to Mai and Saki five years ago. After meeting the two again, she becomes Mai's companion.
- Mentor Mascot: Often briefs Mai on the whole situation with Dark Fall and reveals new things they encounter.
- Non-Human Sidekick: An adorable critter from the Land of Fountains who sticks with Mai.
- Oblivious to Love: Doesn't understand Flappy has a crush on her. Seems to reciprocate it after Flappy spat it out.
- Verbal Tic: "~chopi"
Voiced by: Yuriko Fuchizaki (Moop), Akemi Okamura (Fuup)Two mascots who appear later to aid Saki and Mai against Dark Fall and give them the power to become Cure Bright and Cure Windy respectively.
- And You Were There: They share voice actors with with Michiru and Kaoru.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Especially to Flappy.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Their borderline Undying Loyalty and insistence to save Michiru and Kaoru from the Dark Fall, even though they are directly responsible for the destruction of their Fountain, is because the twins saved them from a falling tree, spared their lives, and allowed them to keep staying in the Fountain even though their job includes fairy-killing, long before their HeelFace Turn.
- Blow You Away: Fuup.
- Lunacy: Moop.
- Non-Human Sidekick: They're critters from the Land of Fountains who go along with Saki and Mai.
- Tagalong Kid: They fall into this.
- Verbal Tic: "~mupu" for Moop, "~pupu" for Foop.
Voiced by: Taeko KawataThe ruler of the Land of Fountains.
Voiced by: Isshin ChibaThe first general of Dark Fall to appear. He represents wood and is very serious about his job.
- Came Back Strong: After Gooyan steals the Fairy Charafe, he is revived with Gooyan's mark and far more strength than when the Cures first confronted him.
- The Comically Serious: This guy is almost no-nonsense, except regarding his nickname Karecchi. He allows almost everyone to call him that.
- Enemy Mine: He dislikes Moerumba (mostly because their elements are incompatible and Moerumba rubs him the wrong way), but when it comes to fighting Precure, the combination is simply devastating. The Cures only manage to survive because when victory is almost assured, Karehan and Moerumba start fighting again, forcing Gohyan to retreat them both.
- The Generic Guy: He lacks the personality quirks of the other warriors.
- Green Thumb: His powers revolve around wood.
- Meaningful Name: "Kareha" means "dead leaves".
Voiced by: Keiichi NanbaThe second general of Dark Fall to appear. He represents fire and enjoys dancing and partying.
- Ambiguously Gay: He seems to be hitting on Karehan after their revival, though it might have been just to mess with him.
- Came Back Strong: He is revived alongside Karehan with more strength. They even did a Combination Attack to overpower the Pretty Cure.
- Dance Battler: He often dances and snaps his fingers in battle with the Cures.
- Gratuitous Spanish: "Senorita!"
- Kick the Dog: Following too many failures, he threatens to harm Choppy and Flappy into revealing the Fountain of the Sun's location in front of Saki and Mai.
- Laughably Evil: This guy really is fun to watch on screen, even if he is the bad guy.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Basically his Fatal Flaw; he's too impatient to attack strategically (even Kintolesky is better at this than him), using two Uzaina at once to overwhelm the girls in his arc's last episode. As warriors of Dark Fall die from using up all their Miracle Drops to make Uzainas and taking too much damage, this is an incredibly stupid move as the Cures' finisher is Twin Stream Splash... and this happens again when Gohyan resurrects all the generals. He's such a glory seeker that he ignores Kintolesky's warning and charges head on to his seemingly defeated opponents, only to get blasted at point blank twice.
- Meaningful Name: "Moeru" means burn, while rumba is self-explanatory.
- Playing with Fire: His powers revolve around fire.
- Sissy Villain: He has a feminine vibe to his character.
- Verbal Tic: Likes to say "Cha Cha" at the end of his sentences.
Voiced by: Mitsuo IwataThe third general of Dark Fall to appear. He represents earth and is rather bad at his job.
- Came Back Strong: Was revived with Karehan and Moerumba, with Gooyan's mark and more strength than the last time he confronted Saki and Mai. He and Karehan even nearly defeated the duo until Michiru and Kaoru intervened!
- Dishing Out Dirt: His powers are based on earth.
- Dumb Muscle: You thought Gekidrago was stupid? This guys even dumber!
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: He rarely ever gets any success against Pretty Cure.
- Meaningful Name: "Doro" means dirt.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: When he merged with an Uzaina in episode 20, he made it easier for the Precures to defeat him because it was more difficult for him to keep his balance in that form. That was also the last time he got to fight the Cures until the final arc, as he died moments afterwards.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite being actually not so competent, he almost defeats the Precures, but Michiru and Kaoru secretly saves them.
- Shrinking Violet: He's a bit of a coward when it comes to fighting.
- Simpleton Voice: He sounds very much like a Japanese-speaking version of Grounder from Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
- Super Mode: He merges with an Uzaina for his final battle.
Voiced by: Yuriko Fuchizaki (Michiru), Yuka Imai > Akemi Okamura (Kaoru)Two girls who are Akudaikahns children.
- Artificial Humanoid: Unlike the other members of Dark Fall, who were constructed from their element, Akudaikahn created the Kiryuu sisters whole cloth. This may explain why both of them are a...
- Blank Slate: Much of their development comes from being exposed to the human world, and, of course, friendship.
- Big Damn Heroes: In episode 42, they are reborn and appear in front of Precure to protect them from the also reborn Dorodoron and Karehaan.
- Brutal Honesty: At least at first.
- Convenient Coma/Sealed Good in a Can: Following the Final Boss Preview with Akudaikhan, they were placed in limbo until they responded and returned to Saki and Mai to help them against Dark Fall.
- Cool Big Sis: Kaoru is this to Minori.
- Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair and eyes for Kaoru, red for Michiru.
- Creepy Twins: They're twin sisters who are working for the villains.
- Dark Magical Girl: They possess powers to fight the Pretty Cure and they're working for the villains.
- Disney Death: Twice! First when Akudaikahn whacks them out as they help Saki and Mai escape and the second right after they defeat Gooyan.
- Demoted to Extra: Despite being so important in the series, they only earned a small cameo in Pretty Cure All Stars, while the second upgrades it to around three lines of dialogue.
- 11th-Hour Superpower: They gain Moop and Foop's powers of the wind and the moon during the Cures' final battle with Gooyan.
- Emotionless Girl: Kaoru at first. Michiru is friendlier from the beginning, but even she has her moments.
- Empty Eyes: Not as dull of a color as most other examples, but there is a sense of lifelessness in their eyes. It's worse when they fight the Cures, as it makes them look inhuman. The glossy look slowly disappears as they make their HeelFace Turn bit by bit until the eyes are completely normal-looking at the last few episodes.
- Evil Redhead: Michiru. At first, anyway.
- Forehead of Doom: Kaoru.
- HeelFace Turn: Due to their friendship with Saki and Mai, they help them against Akudaikhan and end up getting sealed away and placed into a coma. Once revived, they both cast their lot with Saki and Mai against Dark Fall.
- Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of the Final Boss Preview against Akudaikahn, they undergo this when they save the Cures by sending them away from Dark Fall. It turns out they didn't die, but were sealed away.
- Licked by the Dog: Minori takes a liking to Kaoru, and calls her Kaoru-oneesan. Kaoru feels ambivalent towards her.
- Meaningful Name: "Kiryuu" is written with the character for "fog" and another character that means "life" or "birth". Michiru means "to be full" as in a full moon, while Kaoru means "fragrance".
- No Body Left Behind: They very nearly become this.
- No Social Skills: Obviously justified, what with their origins and all. They grow out of this.
- Pet the Dog: Saving and sparing Moop and Fuup's lives, Kaoru towards Minori and a minor instance of her helping a snail get back up on a leaf.
- Pure Magic Being: They are made from "the power of destruction", which leads to problems when they turn against Dark Fall - if the power of destruction vanishes, so do they. When they do begin to vanish, they're saved by the spirits of the Earth, and the Power of Friendship.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Exist in subverted archetypes; Michiru might be the friendlier of the two but she's actually a type B Stepford Smiler who doesn't understand the reason of such novelties, while Kaoru is more prone of Brutal Honesty because she's insightful of her surrounding and doesn't see the point of faking her concern. Then they play it straight; when they face their inevitable fight with the Cures, Michiru quickly despairs and goes into a berserk denial, while Kaoru notices that fighting is not something that they want, makes peace with her contradicting existence and stops her sister.
- Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: They only appear briefly in the second ending credits sequence.
- Super Intelligence: At one point they say they can read a school textbook once and remember it all.
- Unperson: Everybody but Saki, Mai and the mascots forget that they ever existed after they disappear.
- Villainous Rescue: Helping Precure in their last fight against Dorodoron by cutting his web that has tied them up.
Voiced by: Naoko MatsuiThe fourth general of Dark Fall to appear. She represents water and is the only female of the five generals.
- Accidental Misnaming: She always gets angry at Saki for getting her name wrong...
- Enemy Mine: The reason why she invokes I Was Just Passing Through, Thinking Out Loud, and open a portal directly into Gooyan's lair; she's so furious that Gooyan is one step away from her by capturing Flappy and Choppy, she decides to help the Cures reclaim their fairies.
- An Ice Person: Or water, but ice works just as well.
- Inferiority Superiority Complex: She seems to compete with Kintolesky for the title of Dark Fall's strongest, and being constantly one-upped by both him and the Cures really gets into her skin. Her interaction with the Cures really gets into It's Personal territory because of this reason, with both sides are not only physically clashing but also taunting psychologically and exchanging trash-talk.
- Kick the Dog: Taunting Mai and Saki via reminding them of Kaoru and Michiru's Fate Worse than Death.
- Lady of War: Ignoring her personality, she's actually a quite graceful fighter. She opts to dodge any attack with twirling motions and redirects physical attacks with her hands, not unlike Cure Egret herself. Most visible in DX 2, when she dodges Prism Chain with a simple twirl before charging at Precure 5 team, while Moerumba jumps away from the attack before it connects.
- Laughably Evil: She's not as silly as Moerumba, but she's very funny at times.
- Making a Splash: Her elemental powers revolve around water.
- Meaningful Name:"Mizu" means "water" and while "shitataru", means "dripping"
- Minion Shipping: With Kintolesky.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: She's quite good at these.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Notably happens in almost all her appearances.
- Spell My Name with an "S": That Mizu might be a Ms.

- Water Is Womanly: The sole female general, Ms. Shitataare, is themed around the element of water.
Voiced by: Jurota KosugiThe fifth and final general to appear. He represents metal and is a bodybuilder who enjoys fighting strong opponents.
- Blood Knight: He enjoys fighting strong opponents, whether they be the Pretty Cure or the defecting Kiryuu Sisters.
- Blue-and-Orange Morality: Due to his Blood Knight tendencies. Early on he even says Earth isn't so bad, but he simply does not comprehend that not everyone likes fighting, or that there are more important things than victory.
- Dumb Muscle: A subversion. He's not stupid, but he dislikes using strategy. In fact the first time he tries using strategy he steals Saki's school festival costume, uses it to surprise Mai...and that's it. He even admits he didn't see the point. But this doesn't stop him from using Reverse Psychology later on to lure Saki and Mai into a trap.
- Extra-ore-dinary: His Elemental Powers allow him to control metal.
- Genius Bruiser: He's a strong guy who's also quite smart even though he doesn't like using strategy.
- Go-Karting with Bowser: Advises Saki on her drawing for Mai.
- Graceful Loser: Compliments Precure and says he's satisfied with their fight before disintegrating.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears (possibly) leather pants.
- Hulking Out: And he's already muscular to begin with!
- Kiai: He did this only when battling the defecting Kiryuu Sisters with "ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA!!!" Now where have we heard this from him before?
- Meaningful Name: "Kin" is Japanese for gold, "kintore" is an abbreviation of "muscle training", and "suki" means "like" (As in "I like muscle training")
- Minion Shipping: With Shitataare.
- Noble Demon: Despite being evil, he always keeps his word and is above acts of petty villainy.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: He often wears a jacket when out among the humans, yet no one seems to notice his yellow skin.
- Super Mode: In his final battle, he gets even more swole and does even more damage.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Only his human disguise has him wearing clothes, which just an added hoodie and Santa costume in Christmas episode.
- Worthy Opponent: All he wants out of the Cures is a fair fight, and he complements them when they finally give it to him.
Voiced by: Takayuki GodaiThe leader of Dark Fall. Or at least, thats what the show wants you to think...
- Abusive Father: Sending your daughters-except-in-name into Fate Worse than Death at the bottom of a lake after you blasted the hell out of them when they weren't fighting back really grants you the title, Akudaikahn.
- Disc-One Final Boss: He's the last villain the Pretty Cure must confront...or so it seems.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Learning that he created life sends him into a near Logic Bomb.
- Large and in Charge: When he finally stands up, he destroys the Dark Fall headquarter.
- Meaningful Name: "Aku" means "evil", while "daikan" is an old word for "magistrate"; it's a reference to a villain archetype in Jidaigeki.
- Omnicidal Maniac: He really wants to end all life. But so does his true master
- Orcus on His Throne: Bonus points for there being a literal throne.
- Psycho Electro: During battle, he uses lighting bolts on the Cures.
- Sinister Silhouette: A subversion in that he really is a giant, shadowy figure. Given that his Soul Jar is a fire, he might be a Living Shadow.
- Soul Jar: It turns out to be a ever-burning fire. When Gooyan snuffs it out, he dies.
- Super Toughness: In their first confrontation with him, Bloom and Egret try to physically attack him. They end up only hurting their own limbs. He also can No-Sell Twin Stream Splash without much fuss, claiming that he didn't even use half of his power.
- Truly Single Parent: At one point the Cures note that he's basically the Kiryuu sisters' father.
- Unwitting Pawn\Puppet King: He's actually created by Gooyan as part of the latter's plan to destroy the universe.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Once it becomes clear to Gooyan that he can no longer stop the Cures, Gooyan decides to snuff out his fire.
Voiced by: Toshiyuki MorikawaA little imp who serves Akudaikahn. In truth, hes the true leader of Dark Fall. He might look like a simple creature, but hes really a monster whos been around since the start of the universe and seeks to destroy it all.
- Big Bad: The true leader of Dark Fall who wants to destroy everything in the universe and the Final Boss the heroes must confront.
- Bishōnen Line: Gooyan looks like a goblin at first. His true form wouldn't be too out of place in Dragon Ball Z
- Creepy Monotone: Does a bit of this in his true form.
- Eldritch Abomination and Humanoid Abomination: He apparently existed before the universe and possesses powers capable of destroying everything. Oh, and his final form's kinda humanoid.
- Faux Affably Evil: He always speaks in Keigo even after the reveal. He taunts, he shatters morale, he destroys, all the while maintaining a polite persona. When his true form is shown, he might have forgone the Japanese Honorifics, but his language is even more archaic and soft-spoken. He also becomes emotionless and more callous towards everything, including his Dark Fall.
- Flash Step: He uses this frequently during the final battle.
- Man Behind the Man: He made Akudaikahn.
- Meaningful Name: "Goya" is a kind of melon. It may also be a reference to "Echigo-ya", a Japanese 17th century merchant group, which would evoke the "dishonest merchant" archetype in Jidaigeki.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: It's noted about mid-series that he's much more powerful than he looks. And then he turns out to be the Big Bad...
- Omnicidal Maniac: He intends to destroy the Land of Fountains, Earth and the entire universe.
- One-Winged Angel: His true form is a stronger, hulking, muscular humanoid brute with enough strength to survive anything thrown at him, destroy the world and bash the heroines around with ease.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: In a few episodes. It's surprising no-one catches onto his skin color.
- Power of the Void/Casting a Shadow: When he goes all out against the heroines, he can make an Unrealistic Black Hole and/or initiate darkness-based attacks to destroy everything and go blow-for-blow with the Cures.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name can also be spelt as "Goyan" or "Gohyan".
- Sphere of Destruction: His Unrealistic Black Hole is able to trash the whole world.
- Taking You with Me: Tries to do this to Saki and Mai after getting hit by the four heroines' Spiral Heart Splash Star. Kaoru and Michiru grab the two before they get dragged in and the girls endure long enough for Gooyan to get wiped out by the attack.
- Time Abyss: He remembers the universe before the Big Bang happens, thus he's older than any life form on Earth had existed.
- World-Wrecking Wave: He throws an Unrealistic Black Hole into the ocean to trash the world during his final battle with the heroines.

- Fat and Skinny: Well, more like Short and Tall.

- Perpetual Frowner: Hours.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Hours is serious, while Minutes is more silly. At the same time, Hours is more emotional while Minutes is laid back.
- Say My Name: "Minutes! Minutes!"
- Tsundere: Hours is a non-romantic Type A, especially evident at the movie's end.
Voiced by: Susumu HayamiThe Big Bad of the show's movie who seeks the Village of Clock's Infinite Clock to stop time.
- Badass Longcoat: Wears one in his first form.
- Conspicuous Trenchcoat: Its clear by the coat that he's not a good person.
