Pretty Cures

    Sora Harewataru (Cure Sky) 

Sora Harewataru (Cure Sky)

Voiced by: Akira Sekine
"Hīrō no debandesu!"English 

The main lead. A native of Sky Land who unexpectedly finds herself on Earth with Elle in tow after the invasion of the Underg Empire.

  • Ascended Fangirl: A big fan of superheroes before she became one herself, originally keeping a diary of common hero tropes to refer to on her journey to becoming The Hero herself.
  • Anime Hair: In her civilian form, she has a large blue ponytail with asymmetrical bangs. As a Cure, she gains massive pigtails with pink tips and a streak in her bangs.
  • Badass Cape: Sports a blue one with red lining and gold tassels on her left shoulder in Cure form, fitting for the leader of the team.
  • Breaking Old Trends: She is notably the first blue Cure to be the lead protagonist, along with the first protagonist to be from another world (most Cures hail from Japan).
  • Blue Is Heroic: Embodies this in both civilian and Cure forms.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Sora cannot answer any question she's asked with anything but the complete truth. As a result, she constantly tells anyone who asks a question the whole truth, like, when she first meets Ageha, she basically tells her everything, including the stuff about Pretty Cure, about how she got there, and she blurts out she's from Skyland to her class at school without thinking what she just said.
  • Catchphrase: "It's hero time!" note 
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has blue eyes and blue hair.
  • Determinator: She does not give up, because she says a hero wouldn't.
  • Dork Knight: She has all virtues of a true knight being kind, honorable, and brave while at the same time still being a teenage girl meaning she is also easily excitable, curious, and prone to the occassional dramatic speech. This helps not only to make her endearing but befits her status as an Ascended Fangirl who finally gets to be a hero.
  • Experienced Protagonist: She's been running around doing heroic deeds before she even became a Precure, and kept a journal describing common traits of heroes.
  • Friendless Background: She was so determined to train to be a hero that she completely forgot to make friends. Mashiro is her first real friend and she ends up getting nightmares over losing her when she becomes Cure Prism.
  • Hairstyle Inertia: Has retained the same cut for her bangs since childhood.
  • Hold My Glasses: Hands Mashiro her bag before she cuts loose with her martial arts.
  • Honor Before Reason: She has more heart than brains. On one occasion, she and Mashiro see what is blatantly Kabaton in disguise, heading towards an obviously fake trap with nonsense bait — Mashiro is dumbfounded at such an obvious trick, but Sora immediately goes to "rescue" Kabaton, leading to her getting trapped by him.
  • In-Series Nickname: The students in her class nickname her "Hero Girl".
  • Jumped at the Call: She saw Kabaton kidnapping Elle and leaped right into action. And this was before she got Precure powers. This is actually an Invoked Trope on Sora's part because she has dedicated her life and trained her body for moments like these.
  • Le Parkour: She's an expert Parkour practitioner.
  • Meaningful Name: Her full name means "clear, cloudless sky", with little alterations.
  • Megaton Punch: Her finisher, Soaring Sky Punch.
  • New Transfer Student: Transfers to Mashiro's middle school in episode 7.
  • Oh, Crap!: She has this reaction each time she tries to do average in each sporting event but ends up doing exceptionally and accidentally beats a sport record.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When transforming into Cure Sky, her usual short ponytail transforms into two pigtails that reach all the way to the ground.
  • Practically Different Generations: Sora is 14 and mentions having a brother who's a baby, putting him at 1 or 2 at most.
  • Punny Name: Her In the Name of the Moon speech, she declares "Mugen de hirogaru aoi no sora! Cure Sky!". Similarly to the title, she's either saying "Endlessly Spreading Blue Sky! Cure Sky!" or declaring herself the "Hero Girl of the Endless Blue Sky! Cure Sky!"
  • Superheroes Wear Capes: Fittingly for the Ascended Fangirl, Cure Sky gets a cape that represents her commitment to heroic causes.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She serves as the tomboy (athletic and brave) to Mashiro's girly girl (polite and into cosmetics).
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: In her civilian form, she has a side ponytail and is an active girl who looks up to superheroes.
  • Town Girls: The athletic butch to gentle Mashiro's femme and mature Ageha's neither.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Cloud Bread becomes her favorite after Mashiro gives her some.

    Mashiro Nijigaoka (Cure Prism) 

Mashiro Nijigaoka (Cure Prism)

Voiced by: Ai Kakuma

"Gentle Light Soaring Softly! Cure Prism!"

A Sorashido resident who meets Sora and Elle not long after the duo fall to Earth.

  • Childhood Friends: Her friendship with Ageha. Flashbacks show they were both neighbours in their childhood until Agaha had to move away thanks to her mother's job, but thankfully the two of them could still keep connected.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Sora isn't even discreet about her feelings for her, declaring she will be by her side as long as she can be, and becomes extremely flustered when she isn't around.
  • First Friend: Episode 5 shows that she is Sora's first real friend since the latter's childhood days. See Friendless Background in Sora's entry above.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: A series first - her grandmother Yo-yo is a Skylandian, meaning that Mashiro is most likely one-fourth.
  • In-Series Nickname: Is refered to as 'Mashiron' by those close to her.
  • Meaningful Name: The niji in her surname means "rainbow" while her first name Mashiro means "pure white", which fits Cure Prism's rainbow color scheme.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: As Cure Prism, her already long hair goes to being waist-length.
  • Raised by Grandparents: Is stated to live with her grandmother as her parents are normally working overseas.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair in both her civilian and Cure forms (though her hair color as Cure Prism is a much brighter shade of pink) and is nice even to strangers from another world.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She serves as the polite girly girl to Sora's athletic tomboy.
  • Town Girls: The gentle femme to athletic Sora's butch and mature Ageha's neither.
  • V-Sign: She performs these several times during her transformation into Cure Prism, then finally does this as her final pose during her In the Name of the Moon speech.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: She starts the series with some self-doubt, feeling she lacks direction or clear strength worth respecting, in light of Sora's desire to be a hero, or Ageha's dream of being a nursery school teacher. It leads to some problems when Kabaton disparages Mashiro as a "side character", making her worry about whether she's worthy to be a Precure, until Ageha tells her that her she is already strong with her innate kindness and gentleness.

    Tsubasa Yuunagi (Cure Wing) 

Voiced by: Ayumu Murase

A mysterious boy from the Puni Bird tribe who properly debuts in Episode 8.

  • Cool Big Sis: Despite not being related, she's seen this way by Mashiro and very quickly becomes one for Sora.
  • Don't Split Us Up: She was very devastated when learning her family would be moving away when she was younger and didnt want to be separated from Mashiro, which caused her to run off crying.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Moreso than any of the other cures in the team. This includes a long purple sock on one leg and a ribbon on the other, along with a huge bow pinned to the right side of her skirt.
  • Friend to All Children: Her love for Ellee is instant upon meeting her and willingly goes out of her way to protect her upon coming into a dangerous situation. Her having a fondness for children is befitting for her dream to become a nursery school teacher.

  • Goal in Life: Her aspiration is to become a nursery school teacher.
  • Meaningful Name: Her first name Ageha is Japanese for "swallowtail butterfly", while her last name Hijiri roughly means "holy" and also commonly used to refers to Saints, perfectly fitting for her role as Cure Butterfly and the series' aerial theme.

The infant princess of Sky Land who has the mysterious power to conjure Sky Tones.

    Yoyo Nijigaoka 

Voiced by: Tomoko Shiota

Mashiro's grandmother, a scholar from Skyland who came to Earth fifty years ago for study purposes. Owns the Mirror Pad, a form of Skylandian observation and communication device.

  • I Choose to Stay: Has lived on Earth for several decades despite being perfectly capable of going back to Skyland.

  • Good Parents: Even being on the other side of the planet won't stop them from reminding their daughter that they love her.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: It's not made clear which, but one of them is half-Skylandian since Yoyo is Skylandian.

Underg Empire


Voiced by: Yasuhiro Mamiya

The first general of the Underg Empire to appear. He directly starts the plot by kidnapping Elle.


Voiced by: Kouichi Souma

The monsters summoned by the Underg Empire.

  • Animate Inanimate Object: Much like the last season. This season turns inanimate objects into the Monster of the Week. Most episodes use manmade objects like a train or construction vehicle, while others have used organic items like a stalk of bamboo and a pair of mushrooms.
  • Last Words: Like previous monsters, they say "I've been purified!" when they lose.
  • Meaningful Name: Their name is the result of crossing "ranbou", the Japanese word for "violence", with "cyborg". True to that name, they're robotic in appearance and behavior and violent in nature.
  • Monster of the Week: Serves as the big brutes the Cures must confront for this season. To summon them, the Underg generals need to use Underg Energy on an object.
  • Spell My Name with an S: The Crunchyroll simulcast calls them Ranborgs.
