Nodoka Hanadera (Cure Grace)
Voiced by: Aoi Yūki
- Beware the Nice Ones: After running away from a wounded Daruizen rather than lend him aid, Nodoka spends much of the following episode wondering whether it was the right thing to do...before deciding with Rabirin's help that yes, it was, and she isn't going to let someone like him take advantage of her own kindness.
- Catchphrase: "Fuwaaa~!" when she's excited or impressed.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Is shown to be willing to help anyone in need, even if it would greatly inconvenience her - taken to its improbable peak in the first episode when the Monster of the Week appears out of nowhere and wreaks havoc in a forest, she decides to stick around and risk her life because she heard a puppy was not able to escape. Late in the series, this haunts her for a bit when Daruizen asks for help and she made the decision to run — she did want to help him, but didn't want to potentially relive her (ruined) childhood.
- Composite Character: She borrows from some previous Cures, especially the lead ones:
- Tsubomi/Cure Blossom: Being the opposite in comparison of previous leads.
- Megumi/Cure Lovely: Kind and helpful.
- Haruka/Cure Flora: Eager and determined to achieve her goal.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Notably the first lead Cure since Tsubomi/Cure Blossom from HeartCatch who isn't defined by being a Genki Girl, instead being calmer and not having much stamina due to a respiratory illness.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Nodoka comes off as uncoordinated, since she's not athletic and gets exhausted quickly.
- Delayed Reaction: In the first episode, she gets so caught up in helping Latte and defeating the monster of the week that isn't until the very end of the episode that she begins to process that there are floating magical animals talking to her.
- Delicate and Sickly: Appears to have some respiratory illness as she can only run for so long. In a flashback, she is seen in the hospital receiving treatment, and Episode 2 reveals that she had to use a wheelchair as a child. Episode 28 reveals this was because of a Byogen (judging on a flashback, this happened when she was really young too), which ended up becoming Daruizen.
- Disability-Negating Superpower: She becomes overjoyed at the fact her Cure powers allow her to run and jump around to her heart's content without tiring out, something that was only a dream for most of her life, due to her illness.
- Genki Girl: Greatly downplayed, especially in comparison to past lead Cures; while she does have moments of being excitable and cheerful, she's generally much calmer than the typical pink Cure and also doesn't have much stamina due to her condition. Once she gets better, she tries to work her stamina.
- Giant Poofy Sleeves: Has these as Cure Grace.
- Green Thumb: Nodoka transforms into Cure Grace using the Flower Element Bottle.
- It's Personal: At the end of Episode 28, in her own words regarding her and Daruizen:Nodoka: "If I was the one he grew in, I have to do something about it."
- Leeroy Jenkins: Desiring to protect the sculptures, which got infected by the Byo-gens' attack, Grace lunges herself to attack the Megabyögen all by herself despite Rabirin's protests.
- Martyr Without a Cause: She tends to put herself at risk to try to save the world, despite the consequences. One example, she launches herself to recklessly fight the Megabyo-gen, despite Rabirin's objections and advice to fight as a team with her fellow Cures.
- Meaningful Name:
- One possible meaning of Nodoka's name is "tranquil", which fits with her calm and helpful nature relative to a majority of her more excitable pink predecessors.
- Her family name translates as "flower temple", which is fitting with her connection to flowers as Cure Grace.
- Moment of Weakness: Played with. When a weakened Daruizen asks her for help in episode 41, she makes the decision to run. This stresses her out until Rabirin tells her it's okay to care for herself if she needs to.
- New Transfer Student: She transfers to Sukoyaka Middle School in episode 2.
- Nice Girl: Very much so. She helps an elderly woman carry her things despite the strain on her own body, and she even takes the time to help a man escape to safety while a monster is attacking the town without hesitation!
- Power Limiter: Anytime she and Rabirin has a rift in their bond due to an argument, it prevents her transforming into Cure Grace.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When transformed, her hair changes from bob-length to a back-length bun/ponytail.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Sports a pale shade of magenta as a civilian and her most prominent trait is her kind and cheerful personality, something that many people comment on.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here: In episode 41, an injured Daruizen confronts and begs Nodoka to let him reenter her body so he can heal. Seeing as he was the cause of her illness, the thought of being reinfected again causes her to turn and run in terror.
- Shut Up, Hannibal!: When King Byo-gen tries to call out Cure Grace for "cutting off Daruizen" when she said she was going to "save the Earth", Nodoka delivers this line.Nodoka: "Who drove him to a corner? You have no right to judge."
- A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: If Cure Grace had heeded Rabirin's advice to work with Fontaine and Sparkle as a team since the beginning, instead of fight the Megabyo-gen all by herself, then the attack wouldn't get even worse and Latte wouldn't get even sicker.
Chiyu Sawaizumi (Cure Fontaine)
Voiced by: Natsu Yorita
- Academic Athlete: Chiyu is both a star student and the track-and-field team's VIP. She is the first blue Cure to be The Smart Guy and engaged in a sport not considered "ladylike".
- The Determinator: After suffering a Heroic BSoD, she disparately keeps practicing her high jumping so she can get good again and beat her old record. This causes Pegitan, Nodoka, and Hinata to get worried about her.
- Giant Poofy Sleeves: Has these as Cure Fountaine.
- His Own Worst Enemy: A non-dysfunctional variant. Chiyu believes that track and field is a battle with oneself and that she is her own greatest rival. As soon as she says that, she begins to fall into a slump due to not being able to clear her new high jump record.
- Humor Dissonance: Invoked in-universe. Chiyu has a weakness for bad puns and similar wordplay jokes, a fact that leaves other characters wondering why someone would find such things humorous.
- Making a Splash: Chiyu transforms into Cure Fontaine using the Water Element Bottle.
- Meaningful Name:
- Chiyu's name is homophonic with the Japanese word for "full recovery"JP .
- Her family name is made up of the kanji for "mountain stream" and "fountain". The "fountain" kanji ties into her Cure name, Fontaine, which also means "fountain" in French.
- Motherly Side Plait: Chiyu cares for her friends and classmates in a motherly, firm but fair manner, reflected by the ponytail that drapes over her left shoulder.
- Non-Uniform Uniform: She wears a light blue cardigan over her school uniform.
- Only One Finds It Fun: Downplayed. Whenever someone makes a pun or word-based joke, intentionally or not, Chiyu is usually the only one who visibly reacts by trying to restrain her laughter.
- Slipknot Ponytail: During her transformation to Cure Fontaine, her hair tie comes out, undoing her ponytail.
- Take a Third Option: Episode 38 has Chiyu contemplating whether to do high jump professionally or continue working at her family's inn for her future career. Realizing that both are too important for her to give up, she decides to pursue both.
- Team Mom: Chiyu is a very nurturing person who often shows concern for her friends and especially for her fairy partner, Pegitan and she can get angry if someone wants to hurt them.
- Water Is Womanly: Cure Fontaine, associated with water, and a nurturing, motherly personality.
Hinata Hiramitsu (Cure Sparkle)
Voiced by: Hiyori Kouno
- Alliterative Name: Hinata Hiramitsu.
- Animal Motif: Hinata's got a cat theme going on. Her partner is Nyatoran, she frequently has a Cat Smile, her Cure form has fur lining and hair buns shaped like cat ears, and, as cats are known for, she does her own thing.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: She has a very short attention span, which clearly shows in Episode 4; She gets so caught up about the fact Nyatoran can talk that she runs back to the clinic to tell her brother about it while forgetting the outing she had with her friends, and when facing the Monster of the Week, she gets more amazed at how cute Grace and Fontaine look in their Cure outfits instead of being scared of the behemoth.
- Brutal Honesty: Hinata doesn't have much in the way of a brain-to-mouth filter. She will say exactly what's on her mind, whether or not it is tactful or even relevant.
- Catchphrase: Hinata uses "Meccha" as an adverb a lot. Subs commonly translate it to "Super duper".
- Cat Smile: To go with her playful personality.
- Crash-Into Hello: How she meets Nodoka in the first episode, bumping into her and leaving shortly after.
- Cuteness Proximity: The Cures' aesthetics are enough to make Hinata forget about a giant monster.
- Eye Colour Change: Whereas the other Cures' eye colours become more saturated, Hinata's outright change from brown to green as Cure Sparkle.
- The Fashionista: When it comes to clothes, expect her to lead the charge in shopping and coordinating.
- Flat "What": Her reaction upon first finding out Nyatoran can talk.
- Genki Girl: Hinata is the most energetic of the main cast, beating out Nodoka and Rabirin. She gets excited easily, and talks loudly and very fast.
- Girlish Pigtails: The resident fashionista, and her hair is up in pigtails in both civilian and Cure form.
- Hidden Depths: Hinata seems to be shallow and bubbly, but she's actually worried that people find her quirkiness annoying and unreliable. It's later shown that as much as she loves her siblings, she often finds herself envious of their abilities, making her lose confidence in her own.
- High-Pressure Emotion: Her reaction whenever people compliment her.
- It's All My Fault: She blames herself for the formation of King Guaiwaru and believes she just failed everyone during their fight, leading to a really heartbreaking Heroic BSoD.
- Leeroy Jenkins: When she sees Pegitan captured by Shindoine, while Chiyu tried to offer her to negotiate to get him back, Hinata, without thinking, rushes to attacking and screaming at her to give him back, despite Chiyu's protests.
- She goes through an even more serious one when King Guaiwaru appears, almost using up all her energy in an Attack! Attack! Attack! rampage.
- Light 'em Up: Hinata transforms into Cure Sparkle using the Light Element Bottle.
- Malaproper: Excitable and talkative, Hinata frequently uses words wrong, usually drawing a gentle correction from Chiyu.
- Meaningful Name:
- Hinata's name means "a sunny spot". Quite apt for a girl with light powers and such a sunny personality.
- The second kanji in her family name, Hiramitsu, can be translated as "sparkle", "light", or "glow".
- Missing Mom: So far, her mom hasn't been seen or mentioned. Only her dad has been seen.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: In Episode 39, Hinata was the first one to suggest going to the Byo-gen realm to fight and kill King Byo-gen. This was actually a setup for Guaiwaru to become the new King Byo-gen.
- The Nicknamer: Hinata gives all her friends cute nicknames. Nodoka is "Nodokacchi", Chiyu is "Chiyuchi" and Asumi is "Asmin".
- No Indoor Voice: The teacher quickly labels her as "The Noisy One" when Nodoka transfers to their school.
- Non-Uniform Uniform: She wears a pink jumper over her school uniform, and wears a large, yellow tie instead of a small, red one.
- Personality Powers: She's positive and cheerful and has light powers.
- Pungeon Master: Has an affinity for puns as revealed in episode 5.
- Slipknot Ponytail: During her transformation to Cure Sparkle, her hair untwists and her pigtails come loose.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: In Episode 8, she tells Chiyu that she's absolutely not looking at pictures of the West Middle track-and-field's new records whatsoever.
- Tears of Joy: She starts shedding these once Nodoka recovers from her "Sickness" in episode 28. It is difficult to tell because her face is slightly hidden under her arm.
Asumi Fuurin (Cure Earth)
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
- Blow You Away: Asumi transforms into Cure Earth using the Wind Element Bottle. Her powers as a Cure are also wind-based, such as moving at blinding speeds and purifying enemies with the aptly named "Healing Hurricane".
- The Cameo: Despite the movie taking place before her first appearance in canon, she appears alongside Cure Grace in the introductory scene in Miracle Leap, acknowledging that while she won't be in the movie she'll still be cheering for the Cures regardless.
- Combat Stilettos: Averted. Unlike the first three Pretty Cures, she only wears a pair of flats in Cure form.
- Earthy Barefoot Character: To further accentuate her connection to the Earth, she is first introduced not wearing any shoes.
- Fading Away: She starts becoming invisible after becoming sad about losing Latte.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Her Pretty Cure form has a long frill that droops down from the side.
- Fish out of Water: Being a spirit sent from the Healing Garden, the other girls have to help her get accustomed to the way things work on Earth.
- Forgot I Couldn't Swim: She attempts to take flight by leaping off of the second story of Nodoka's house, only to forget that she can't fly without the Wind Element Bottle. The realization hits her right as she begins plummeting to the ground.
- Line-of-Sight Name: Nodoka noticed nearby wind chimes while introducing Asumi to her parents, and used them as a last minute family name.
- Magic Music: Whereas the other Cures use their Healing Sticks, Earth performs her finishers through playing the Earth Windy Harp.
- Meaningful Name: The first part of her given name sounds like "Earth", and fuurin are wind chimes used in the summer.
- My Beloved Smother: As Teatine's plea was the catalyst for her creation, caring for Latte is always Asumi's first priority. When she first appeared, she even tried to forcefully take Latte back to the Healing Garden for safety. Her Character Development revolves around growing out of this and gaining interests and aspirations besides Latte.
- No Social Skills: Zigzagged. While she's been capable of polite speech from the moment of her creation, Asumi is totally clueless about everything else pertaining to humans, from basic actions like eating and sleeping to fundamental concepts such as cuteness or liking something. Trying to understand things that most humans take for granted is the crux of her development.
- Our Spirits Are Different: Unlike the other Cures, she's a spirit from the Healing Garden in place of a human who's chosen to be a Precure.
- Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Downplayed. Asumi's bun makes it look like it grows, but her look with her hair down was already quite long.
- Prim and Proper Bun: She wears her hair this way in her human form.
- Purple Is Powerful: Has a purple theme color, and she is able to singlehandedly take on enemies that would normally require the three girls to work together to take down.
- Really Was Born Yesterday: She was created full-grown by the Earth. As such, the Cures have to teach her how to act like a person.
- Sixth Ranger: She joins the team in Episode 19.
- Slipknot Ponytail: During her transformation to Cure Earth, she undoes her hair, releasing her bun.
- Thinking Up Portals: She can use her wind powers to create portals.
- Token Adult: Subverted. Asumi certainly looks the part, being 20 years old physically. However, because of the circumstances surrounding her nature as a spirit, she is actually the youngest Pretty Cure in the series age-wise.
- Token Non-Human: She is the only Pretty Cure of the team to be a spirit.
- Undying Loyalty: Towards Latte.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Because Asumi doesn't have a Healing Stick she doesn't have access to several of the techniques that Nodoka, Chiyu, and Hinata have such as the Paw Shield or a ranged attack with an element bottle. The being said she doesn't necessarily need access to those abilities since she's ridiculously strong and fast anyway.
- Worf Had the Flu: She could've easily taken care of the Post-Final Boss in the final episode ... had she decided to not see the Byo-gens as Sukoyaka Sweet Buns.
- Younger Than They Look: Contrary to her adult appearance, she was just recently born. As such, she has about the same level of common sense as that of a newborn infant.
Voiced by: Ai Kakuma
One of the four Healing Animals who ventured to the human world on orders from Teatine. She is energetic with a strong sense of justice, making her high-spirited. She is the partner of Nodoka.
- Bunnies for Cuteness: She's an adorable, energetic little pink rabbit.
- Genki Girl: More so than the lead. In fact, her optimism and energy makes her have a lot more in common to past lead pink Cures than Nodoka.
- Imagine Spotting: Rabirin quickly spots the Cures' Imagine Spots of each of their expectations of their teamwork training, and pops them out.
- Poor Communication Kills:
- Rabirin was devastated when Nodoka turns out to be non-athletic, and Nodoka confirms it herself. But does Rabirin ask why it is so and why she became a Pretty Cure in the first place? No. Instead, she jumps to conclusions and denounces her as unfit to be her partner and walks out on her, albeit with a good reason (for her safety), leaving Nodoka unable to transform when a Megabyo-gen attacks. Once she learns of Nodoka's reasoning, she apologizes to her for her harsh behavior, while Nodoka apologizes to her for hurting her first.
- When she grows fond of a lavender-daruma doll that Nyatoran doesn't find cute at all and Nyatoran catches her and Nodoka with it, she loudly declares that she never wanted it in the first place and doesn't like it at all before throwing it on the ground, hurting Nodoka (because they were both having fun winning the doll). During their talk to make up, she admits she unfairly expected Nodoka to almost read her mind and pick up on the fact that she does like the doll but is embarrassed about it in front of others.
- Tears of Joy: She starts shedding these once Nodoka recovers from her "Sickness" in episode 28.
- Verbal Tic: She ends her sentences with "Rabi!"
- You Are Better Than You Think You Are: In episode 42, Nodoka is uncertain if she should have stopped and helped Daruizen when he asked for it the previous episode. Rabirin asks if she would have been willing to help him and when Nodoka replies "no", she reassures her that it's perfectly alright, that she has no obligation to help him and that her body is her own.
Voiced by: Hana Takeda
One of the four Healing Animals. He is very intelligent and acts as the voice of reason for his friends; however, he is also shy and lacking in confidence. He is the partner of Chiyu.
- Cowardly Lion: His defining trait is his low self-esteem. He genuinely wants to support others, but he lacks the confidence to take action. Part of what draws him to Chiyu is her affirmation that she'll support him and lend him her courage if he needs it.
- Verbal Tic: He ends his sentences with "Pe!"
Voiced by: Aki Kanada
One of the four Healing Animals. He is very free-spirited and much like Hinata, who he gets along with, says whatever is on his mind. He is the partner of Hinata.
- Birds of a Feather: With his partner, Hinata.
- Cute Kitten: A tiger variant but he is certainly cute.
- Cute Little Fangs: He has a prominent fang sticking out of the left side of his mouth, adding to his cuteness.
- Epic Fail: He looks quite proud of his work on the Cure's banner for Chiyu until Pegitan points out he made a spelling error, resulting in a Flat "What" moment between him, Nodoka, and Hinata.
- Precocious Crush: Has this towards a human girl he meets until discovering she is engaged at the end.
- Verbal Tic: He ends his sentences with "Nya!"
Voiced by: Haruka Shiraishi
The Princess of Healing Garden. She is a young puppy and although unable to talk, her inner voice can be heard via the stethoscope.
- Blush Stickers: Has them permanently equipped.
- Kryptonite Factor: The summoning of Megabyo-gens puts her into a feverish state that can be cured by purifying them quickly enough or by taking medicine contained in Elemental Bottles.
- The Load: Discussed. As the season goes on and Latte becomes increasingly sick and fatigued due to the nature of how she detects Megabyo-gens, she confides in Nodoka and Rabirin that she feels she is only holding the team back. Nodoka refutes this, saying that Latte's ability makes her a vital part of the team's success. Eventually, Latte's desire to help the team to a greater degree than before wins out, resulting in her getting a partner of her own: Asumi.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: After Rabirin and Nodoka are unable to transform because of their second feud, Latte becomes very agitated, refusing to let any of them leave without apologizing and making up.
- Precious Puppy: One of the mascots of the series, and she's a cute little puppy.
- Spell My Name with an S: Official English subs refer to her as "Rate," while most fansubs and official subs in other languages refer to her as "Latte."
Voiced by: Keiko Toda
The Queen of the Healing Garden and Latte's mother, who resembles an Afghan Hound. She is a graceful, kindhearted and benevolent queen and a loving (but somehow, overly doting) mother to Latte.
- Big Damn Heroes: Comes in personally when King Byo-gen has already started to undermine the Earth, saving Latte from getting killed by Shindoine and setting up a barrier that weakens King Byo-gen's influence.
- Big Good: The resident one for this series, sending the Healing Animals to the Earth to find the Precure.
- Final Solution: Discusses with Saruro that "she's prepared to purify humans when necessary", but has faith that they can change the future.
- The High Queen: Is stated to be a benevolent and graceful queen.
- Punny Name: Her name is a play on the Japanese word teate, meaning "medical treatment"JP .
- Amazing Technicolor Population: The Generals all have skin in washed-out colors; Daruizen is blue, Shindoine is violet, and Guaiwaru is green.
- Breaking Old Trends: They are the first faction in Pretty Cure history where none of the members reform and all of them die.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Compared to the Precure season beforehand, these villains, although displaying quirkiness at times, are outright evil (points go to Batetemoda and Daruizen, who are both played as serious threats), considering they are formed from diseases and parasites. None of them do a HeelĖFace Turn either, with only Guaiwaru turning against King Byo-gen only because he had ulterior motives for his own benefit. In the end, every single one of them end up getting purified and/or simply Killed Off for Real, the first faction in Pretty Cure history to do this.
- Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: Several Byo-gens (which to the eyes of many Earthlings, are considered very alien-like) can reproduce or grow by infecting humans and other creatures. In the case of Daruizen, he indirectly used Nodoka as a parasitic host. It's implied Shindione and Guaiwaru were born through similar means too.
- Fire and Brimstone Hell: The Byo-gen Kingdom is clearly meant to invoke this, with a black sky and a lake of lava.
- Horns of Villainy: All the commanders have little demon horns on their heads as well as demon tails.
- Last Words: As they get purified, they scream out "Healin' Goodbye!" (in English) (which is followed by the Bond One-Liner "Take care now" from whoever did the attack). Of everyone, only Guaiwaru (as he was abruptly absorbed by King Byo-gen, not finished off by the Cures) and Daruizen were the only ones who did not say this as they were finished off. Yes, that includes the Big Bad himself.
- One-Winged Angel: After Episode 30, the three generals use a Mega Part to allow themselves to summon Gigabyogens. Guaiwaru, Daruizen and Shindoine get boosted ones in Episodes 40, 42 and 43 respectively after using multiple Mega Parts.
- Portal Door: It's revealed in Episode 39 that the generals come to Earth to infect it via portals, which Guaiwaru leaves one out in the open. He did that intentionally as part of a Batman Gambit to become the new leader.
- Punny Name: It is a play on the Japanese word byougen, meaning "source of the disease"JP .
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: The Byo-gen generals.
- SI Prefix Name: Their Theme Naming, where each type of Byogen is categorized by a prefix.
- Unholy Ground: Their goal is to make Earth completely devoid of life by destroying the planetís elementals.
Voiced by: Hozumi Gouda
The being who leads the Byo-gens. He was heavily damaged after fighting with Queen Teatine, meaning he relies on his generals to do his dirty work.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: King Byo-gen's true form is massive, being able to be seen from multiple parts of the town. His humanoid form he receives when he absorbs Daruizen is even larger.
- Big Bad: The leader of the Byo-gens and the one who assembled the three Tera-Byogens.
- Bishōnen Line: His first form is but another dark spirit, but as he starts absorbing his minions, he begins gaining new forms, each more human than the last.
- The Chessmaster: He and Shindoine anticipated Guaiwaru to backstab him, so they both ended up using him as the perfect host to absorb, therefore regaining his power again. When asked why they didn't just kill the Precure, he calmly just states that "they're the bait".
- Create Your Own Hero: Him calling forth the Tera-Byogens was responsible for healing Nodoka's illness. This motivated Nodoka to become more selfless and help those in need, which caused her to become a Pretty Cure in the first place.
- Dark Lord on Life Support: Compared to other Precure villains, he hasn't encountered the Precure personally (compared to other series villains, who have at least shown their appearance in one way or another around the mid-season). However, both he and Teatine did sustain a lot of damage, so that might be why he's been relying on his generals to do his dirty work. Ultimately, he's forced to fight the Cures when they invade his realm. This leads to his first defeat. However, once he absorbs Guaiwaru, that "Life Support" is no longer there.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: How his first defeat is initially presented, as his first form is unceremoniously eliminated by the Cures in Episode 39 by their group finisher attack that for a Big Bad, seems very anticlimactic. The series then assumes that he died and King Guaiwaru is the only remaining major threat left. However, two episodes later, that form was just a part of him, and the true King Byo-gen was in hiding ready to strike and absorb King Guaiwaru, letting him enter the narrative.
- Evil Counterpart: To Queen Teatine, as both of them are majestic animal creatures and sustained crippling injuries against each other after their fight, with Queen Teatine being based off a dog, and King Byo-gen being based off a bird. Both also rely on warriors to do their work, with the Pretty Cures for Teatine and the Tera-Byogens for King Byo-gen. While Teatine works to protect the Earth, King Byo-gen wants to undermine it.
- Handicapped Badass: Due to fighting against Teatine and her original partner, he seems to have sustained a lot of damage since then. That got fixed once he absorbed Guaiwaru in him.
- Killed Off for Real: After his fake-out death in Episode 39, he legitimately dies in Episode 44.
- Last Words:
- "Vanish, Precures!" during his first defeat.
- "I won't be defeated by mere trainees and humans...!" followed by the usual "Healin' Goodbye!" when he gets purified.
- Mystical White Hair: The otherworldly King Byo-gen has white mystical hair.
- Not Quite Dead: Even though he was defeated in Episode 39 and his presence wasn't sensed by the other Generals in Episode 40, Episode 41 reveals that the "King Byo-gen" defeated there was just a part of his body and he absorbed Guaiwaru, therefore gaining his body back.
- Pet the Dog: A very minor one, but once Daruizen escapes from King Byo-gen (who had wanted to absorb him), Shindoine offers herself in his place, King Byo-gen mentions that he doesn't want to lose such a loyal follower, meaning that he at least pays back for her loyalty.
- Unexpectedly Dark Episode: Even though King Byo-gen doesn't really make a lot of appearances himself (usually it's just the generals bickering/thinking of how to infect the world), expect a serious episode when he does though.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: In the first fight he's fought in, not much is elaborated onto him besides of the fact he's really strong. He's killed before much could be shown. Averted as that was just a part of him, and he revealed his true form two episodes later.
- White Hair, Black Heart: The true form of the King of Byo-gens has very long white hair, yet he's far from good.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Used Guaiwaru as a pawn to recover his body, absorbing him in the process, and immediately attempts to off Daruizen shortly after, stating that the two have already grown. The only reason why he doesn't absorb Shindoine is because of how loyal she is to him, actually considering her to be useful.
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura
The first general of the Byo-gens to appear.
- Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Toward the end of episode 41, he appears before Nodoka. He's injured and he's facing assimilation, so he begs her to help him avoid King Byo-gen and let him recover.
- Arch-Enemy: Nodoka considers him to be one, considering they have conflicting views and have directly fought against each other on more than one occasion. The reveal that he was the cause of Nodoka's illness many years ago drives this further. She's even determined to take him on personally following this revelation.
- Armor-Piercing Question: During their final fight in episode 42, Nodoka asks him what he would have done if she allowed him to recover in her body, if he backed off and stopped turning people into Mega Byo-gens. His silence and sudden attack in a rage is enough to make her realize he would have kept going and that her decision to refuse him was the right one.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His One-Winged Angel form is this, being about as big as the Giga Byo-gens.
- Bishōnen: He is quite a pretty boy despite the blue skin.
- Deadpan Snarker: Emphasis on the deadpan.
- Enemy Without: As a parasite that took root in Nodoka before he was summoned by King Byo-gen and became his own entity, he is essentially one to her.
- Entitled Bastard: At the end of episode 41, he begs Nodoka to help him by hiding him in her body so he can recover from the injuries he sustained while escaping King Byo-gen. This is despite the fact that he ruined her early life, attacked her and her family/friends, planted a Mega Part into her that then grew into Kedary, repeatedly turned people and spirits into Mega Byo-gens, and made repeated attempts to kill her. Nodoka understandably rejects his request and runs away, leaving him to his fate.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: In episode 33, Daruizen fails to understand why Cure Grace would work herself for others rather than herself and angrily rants to her about it.
- Evil Counterpart: To Nodoka/Cure Grace. While Nodoka is selfless and cares for people, Daruizen is apathetic and couldn't care less about anything. Nodoka is also full of energy and excitement no matter where she goes, while Daruizen always sounds bored and lazy. To bring the point further, Daruizen was even born as a parasitic host to Nodoka, making him an Enemy Without as well.
- Hair Flip: He flips his hair to let out dark spores to summon a Nanobyo-gen.
- Ironic Echo: Mocks the Precure girls with both their "Take care, now" line and the monster's "Healin' Goodbye" lines when his flower monster in Episode 11 defeats them.
- Killed Off for Real: After his defeat in Episode 42, King Byo-gen decides he's of no more use and absorbs him.
- Knight of Cerebus: Compared to the other generals (bar Batetemoda), he's actually quite a more serious threat when it comes to the Precures. With the other two generals bickering, this one doesn't mess around, and he was also the one who kicked off the plot. Additionally, he tends to "experiment" Mega Parts on other animals ... including Nodoka herself. This has gotten him praise from King Byo-gen, much to the anger of Shindoine.
- Last Words: "Me too... my body and soul are..." as he's being purified by the Cures. However, he wasn't successfully purified and he ends up being absorbed by King Byo-gen. He's one of the two villains who never said "Healin' Goodbye" line as he was defeated.
- Magic Hair: Implied. His hair appears to produce dandruff-like dark spores, and he needs to flip it to let them out.
- Mellow Fellow: Daruizen always has the same bored expression and lethargic tone of voice, no matter the situation. That was until King Byo-gen decided it was time for him to be absorbed.
- Punny Name: Darui means "weary".
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: King Byo-gen wanting to absorb Daruizen absolutely breaks his apathetic attitude and makes him run for the hills.
- One-Winged Angel: He gives himself a bunch of Mega Parts at his breaking point, turning him into a gigantic technicolor monster, much different than "King Guaiwaru" who just had a minor change of appearance.
- The Reveal: Daruizen was actually born from a sickness from a Mega-Byogen seed. Nodoka was his host and when King Byogen called for any remaining Tera Byo-gens, he escaped from Nodoka's body.

The second general of the Byo-gens to appear.
- Arch-Enemy: Considers herself one to Chiyu/Fontaine and takes her hatred towards her rather personally. Many episodes involving Chiyu's character involve her too.
- The Dragon: Her loyalty to the Demon King makes her the true one to King Byo-gen once he awakens his true form in Episode 41. And in Episode 43, it's revealed she's been his first general, even being there before the others.
- Driven by Envy: King Byo-gen's preferential treatment of Daruizen for actively experimenting on Tera Byo-gens drives the insanely jealous Shindoine to take things in her own hands to impress him.
- Establishing Character Moment: Her first onscreen appearance is spent fawning over King Byo-gen and defending his honor from the insinuation of a past defeat.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She's this towards Daruizen after King Byo-gen praises him.
- Hopeless Suitor: It's rather obvious that King Byo-gen doesn't really care for her and only cares about infecting the world. When she was the first general to force a Mega Part in them, King Byo-gen was intrigued about the discovery, but immediately demanded Guaiwaru and Daruizen to do so as well. Averted that King Byo-gen was actually curious about her and worked together with her so King Byo-gen could regain his body back.
- Kick the Dog: In Episode 43, she outright attempts to kill Latte, and would've succeeded too if Queen Teatine didn't intervene.
- Killed Off for Real: The Cures destroy her in Episode 43.
- Last Words:
- "Iím not a fool like Guaiwaru! First of all, he's "Neo" King Byo-gen! Remember! Darn it!" as her last lines before the Cures use Healin' Good Shower on her.
- "Healin' Goodbye!" as the Cures used the Oasis move on her. She's the only of the three original generals who said this as she was dying.
- Not So Above It All: Like Chiyu, she likes watching horror and drama movies too.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: She was always a dangerous threat, but compared to her other two comrades and Batetemoda, she wasn't really considered as serious as she could be (compare the attack in Episode 10/11, her Megabyo-gen was the least threatening and it was defeated relatively quickly) and is usually just fawning over King Byo-gen. However, that desire forced her to prove herself, forcing a Mega Part inside of her and discovering Gigabyo-gen, something that wasn't even discovered beforehand. This particular discovery actually made King Byo-gen realize that Shindoine was actually dedicated to him.
- Professional Butt-Kisser: Shindoine considers herself King Byo-gen's true love, and if there's a chance to flatter him, she'll take it.
- Projectile Kiss: She summons a Nanobyo-gen by blowing a kiss laced with spores.
- Punny Name: Shindoi means "exhausted".
- The Reveal: During King Byo-gen's true emergence in Episode 41, it was revealed that she was The Dragon to King Byo-gen the whole time as opposed to just a lovestruck follower. Two episodes later, it's also revealed she was the first to answer to King Byo-gen as well, also being the one to witness his true form as opposed to the face most people were used to seeing beforehand.
- The Smurfette Principle: The only female general on screen.
- Whip It Good: Has a Byogen energy whip when she upgrades to her final form in Episode 43.
- Would Hurt a Child: Upon transforming, her first target to infect is a little boy she encounters. Upon striking, his father steps in and gets infected instead.
Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto
The third general to appear.
- Batman Gambit: Uses the Cures to lead them directly to the Byo-gen realm so they could face off against King Byo-gen and ultimately kill him.
- The Chessmaster: Orchestrated a plan to kill King Byo-gen, which distracting Shindoine and leading the Cures straight to their realm just so they could eventually confront and kill him. This led to him becoming the new King Byo-gen. Too bad King Byo-gen was about to out-gambit him.
- Dragon Ascendant: Becomes the new King Byo-gen after the Cures kill the original one - and then gets absorbed into the King when he comes back.
- Evil Redhead: He has orange hair and is one of the Byo-gens.
- Killed Off for Real: After King Byo-gen returns, he uses Guaiwaru for his own purposes by absorbing him into his body, killing him.
- Large Ham: As serious-minded as Guaiwaru can be, he is not without any hamminess.
- Last Words: "Finally, I'm going to beat them! This is my farewell to you, Pretty Cures. Agios!", said right as he's about to finish off the Pretty Cures after they're wiped out. As King Byo-gen absorbs him, Shindoine considers his final words to be stupid and even points out it's pronounced "adios", not "agios".
- One-Winged Angel: His King Guaiwaru form is mostly a cosmetic change, but his hair is a lot longer than even his upgraded form.
- Out-Gambitted: His plan to become King worked, but King Byo-gen allowed him to do it so that he could absorb him and regain his true form.
- Pec Flex: He summons a Nanobyo-gen by flexing three times.
- Punny Name: Guai means "bodily condition", but waru means "bad". Together, "bad condition"
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: In comparison with his fellow generals, his coat lacks sleeves. Justified, since he needs to be sleeveless in order to release his dark spores to summon a Nanobyo-gen.
- Smarter Than You Look:
- During Episode 13, Guaiwaru was sent with Batetemoda so he could show how he works with the Megabyo-gens to the new general. As opposed to the previous monsters which outright wrecked havoc in public spaces and allowed the Cures to easily find them, Guaiwaru infects a drone and makes a monster so fast and quick it causes static, messing with everything around town by locking people in their cars, causing production at factories to shut down, and showing Nyatoran's fish forehead mark.
- Episode 39 shows he was able to use the Cures to kill King Byo-gen and overthrow him. Too bad he didn't anticipate King Byo-gen and Shindoine were actually using him.

A nutria, who becomes infected in Episode 11 and joins King Byo-genís army.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Is only pretending to be a fool in order to gain advantage over the other generals and eventually get rid of them.
- Blood Knight: His primary motivation for fighting the Cures is that he really, really enjoys fighting.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: After arriving at the Byo-gensí headquarters, he refers to the three demonic generals as his family. Theyíre not too happy to be called that, to say the least.
- Subverted when it's revealed his submissive attitude towards them is an act to gain an advantage.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Is viewed as a nuisance by Daruizen and Shindoine.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: From just an ordinary nutria that became infected by Daruizen's Megabyo-gen to a very evil and ambitious general.
- Killed Off for Real: Is destroyed in Episode 20 by Cure Earth.
- Last Words: "My ambition is ... Healin' good-bye!" were the last words he spoke as he was being purified.
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: He gleefully tries to kill Latte in Episode 19.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He's clearly smarter and more evil than he behaves.
- Painful Transformation: Itís very clear the infection that turned him from a regular creature to a commander was not a pleasant experience for him.
- Piss-Take Rap: Tries his hand at this in episode 16 and calls it quits by the end of the episode.
- The Starscream: It becomes very evident that he is trying to butter up the other generals in an attempt to raise his position for his own gain. Unfortunately, he is offed by Cure Earth before he could realize his ambitions.
- You Dirty Rat!: Technically he isnít a rat, but nutrias are rodents nonetheless. Plus, he certainly looks the part.
Voiced by: Eiji TakeuchiA crow who becomes infected in Episode 24. He is quickly defeated.
- Acrophobic Bird: He's a bird general that is scared of heights.
- Japanese Pronouns: He uses 'oira', which indicates country bumpkin/unsophisticated speech. Justified, because he's a literal baby bird turned general thanks to a Mega Part from Dairuizen.
- Last Words: Not counting the "Healin' Goodbye" he says when he is purified, his is, "Huh? Ugh, terrifying! Itís so high!"
- Logical Weakness: A bird general that was rooted from a baby bird that doesn't know how to fly. This means he's not comfortable with flight yet and is afraid of them as a result.
- Punny Name: It roughly translates to "lack of sleep".
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He dies in the same episode he first appears in, a first for the series.
Voiced by: Akeno WatanabeA general formed out of an infection made on Cure Grace. He is also quickly defeated.
- Last Words: "IĎm vanishing ... Healin' good-bye!"
- Long-Lost Relative: He's revealed to be Daruizen's younger brother ... too bad Daruizen realizes this a bit after he got purified.
- Punny Name: Comes from "Kedarui", which means "languid" or "listless".
- Rubber Man: His body was rather rubbery when the Precures fought him.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He is around for less than half an episode, yet his appearance reveals the origins of Nodoka's illness and causes Daruizen to realize his own connections to Nodoka.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Dies just as quickly as Nebusoku.
Voiced by: Kousuke GotoThe monsters the Byo-gens summon. They are created when a Nanobyo-gen summoned by a general is fed an elemental of the planet, causing them to grow and gain powers. In a desperate attempt to please King Byo-gen, Shindoine forces a Mega Part inside of her, making her capable of creating even stronger Gigabyo-gens out of living beings out of just using elements.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: All of them are rather colossal at their weakest. And that's not including the fact they can get more massive and powerful as they continue to pollute
- Increasingly Lethal Enemy: If not defeated quickly, they grow more powerful overtime as they continue to infect their surroundings.
- The Juggernaut: Gigabyo-gens are much stronger than Megabyo-gens (they were able to No-Sell the Healing Oasis), necessitating the tradition of the group finisher that's usually happens around the Episode 30 mark.
- Monster of the Week: They continue the proud tradition of mindless monsters who attack the Cures with no remorse.
- Strong as They Need to Be: Once Cure Earth came into the scene, Mega Parts were introduced so they could make Mega Byo-gens stronger (about as strong as the flower boss from Episode 11) to make up for the power gap. The Giga ones on the other hand, are so strong that Cure Earth herself is not powerful enough to take them on alone.
- Victim of the Week: A general injected with a Mega Part can infect living beings to turn into Gigabyo-gens.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: The ones from Episodes 10 (the glass monster) and 11 (the flower monster) serve as a huge wake up call for the Precures. The fact that three were summoned meant that the girls were forced to decide whether to take on all three at once, or fight all three together. When they decided to take them on together, it gave enough time for the flower one to be an even more dangerous threat. And there's the fact it's revealed they can potentially infect living creatures too, even humans...
Voiced by: Hozumi GoudaAn aloof black monkey and a resident of the Healing Garden. He is not fond of humans due to their actions harming the planet and believes them to be no better than the Byogens.
- Armor-Piercing Response: His response to Asumi's question on why he hates humans so much has the Cures question the various human actions taken on the planet, including pollution and running over animals.
- Fantastic Racism: Has a very bitter attitude towards humans, and would rather have them "purified" more than anything for the sake of the planet. He mellows out a bit towards the end, with Nodoka assuring him that they'll find a way to heal the Earth on their own.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: Expresses disgust in humans in general, stating that they're no different from the Byo-Gens, saying they destroy nature and kill animals.
- Jerkass Has a Point: As much of a jerk he is towards humans, he does have a lot of points that humans do cause a lot of problems to the planet.
- Last Episode, New Character: Introduced in the very last episode as one of the inhabitants of the Healing Garden.
