    Ichika Usami (Cure Whip) 

Ichika Usami (Cure Whip)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ichikawhip.png

Voiced by: Karen Miyama

A second year middle school student who loves sweets. She transforms into Cure Whip, who is based off of shortcakes and rabbits.
  • A Birthday, Not a Break: The final battle precisely started when she was celebrating her 14th birthday.
  • Brought Down to Normal: In Episode 17, after Julio steals her kirakiraru, she loses the ability to transform. She gets better of course.
  • Catchphrase: "Whip, Step, Jump!" and "I have a bright idea!" She also has a very characteristic Big "WHAT?!".
  • Character Tic: Winks with her tongue sticking out both in human form and whenever she transforms into Cure Whip.
  • Combat Stilettos: Cure Whip wears animal-leg-themed high-heels.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Subverted for her civilian form as her magenta eyes don't match her light brown hair. Downplayed in her Cure form where her eyes and hair are different shades of magenta.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: After Rio sucks out her kirakiraru, she gets these and her voice becomes emotionless.
  • Emotionless Girl: In stark contrast to her usual cheery, energetic attitude, she has become this after Julio takes her Kirakiraru away in episode 17.
  • Empty Shell: Briefly in Episode 17 when Julio sucks out her kirakiraru, leaving her emotionless. She gets better after Pekorin gets her to finish the cookies for her mom.
  • Expy: Two long pigtails? Check. Loves to eat sweets? Check. Kind hearted but clumsy magical girl? Check. Name that sounds similar to 'Usagi'? Check. Usami is Usagi Tsukino with an interest in baking!
  • Failed a Spot Check: The girl completely misses the fact that Akira is a girl even when she transforms into Cure Chocolat right in front of her.
  • Genki Girl: Whenever she is really happy or excited, she hops around like a "rabbit". She also reacts to cooking sweets with enthusiasm and energy.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has these in her civilian form, reflecting her girlish and excitable personality. As Cure Whip, they become Mega Twintails.
  • Goofy Suit: When the girls take part in the shopping district's new PR campaign, Ichika ends up having to dress up as their mascot, a giant humanoid strawberry called Ichigon. She is not very thrilled, at least at first, but the kids love the costume. She wears it again in Episode 20 and seems more excited about it this time.
  • Hair Decorations: In her civilian form, she wears strawberry-shaped hair bobbles to hold up her pigtails.
  • Heroic BSoD: When she realized her mother wouldn't come home now, Ichika begins to sulk over enough to refuse to finish her cake, she eventually snaps out of it when she remembers her mother.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She thought Gummy was a friend of Pekorin despite him breaking a part of her house looking for the latter. She also doesn't find Rio's odd behavior unsettling.
  • Lethal Chef: She's prone to getting overly excited about baking, to the point where she'll miss a crucial step and completely ruin the sweet, repeatedly at that. To list off some examples...
    • Ichika tries to bake a sponge cake for her mother in the first episode, but it gets burnt on the first attempt, and the subsequent six attempts fail miserably too. Only Pekorin seems to enjoy the "cookies", and even then it may be more to the amount of passion and energy put into them than anything else.
    • She also tried to make pudding to fill a craving, but she repeatedly kept burning the sugar to make the caramel.
    • In Episode 7, she forgets baking soda for the sweets she was making for Akira.
  • Love at First Sight: Fell hard for Akira the second she saw "him." It didn't last.
  • Mega Twintails: As Cure Whip, she has pigtails that are bigger than her head and reach past the hem of her dress.
  • The Nicknamer: Ichika refers Himari as "Himarin" and Aoi as "Ao-chan".
  • Not So Different: A variation in Episode 19. After reading a line in Ciel's notebook that says to create sweets "to bring happiness to all," Ichika remarks that Ciel feels the same way about sweets that she does.
  • Plucky Girl: She's very optimistic and her spirit is always high.
  • Seiza Squirm: Although she is able to hold the pose for the tea ceremony in episode 16, she falls right over after trying to stand up because her feet went numb.
  • Super Empowering: The animal sweets that she makes for herself and the other girls conveniently turn them into Cures.
  • Stepford Smiler: Episode 31 shows her acting like this around her mom, deliberately putting on a smiling face for her so that she won't have to worry about her daughter. Ichika's mom eventually sees through this and comforts her, allowing Ichika to finally succeed in finishing the cake she was meant to make in the first episode.
  • Sweet Tooth: The girl loves sweets. Her dream is to become a sweets chef after all.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Performer to Ciel's Technician. Ciel focuses on the technical aspects and visual presentations of making sweets, including the taste and combinations, Ichika is really just focused in the "fun" of making sweets and making people happy with them, even if they come out, as Ciel says in Episode 20, as "ordinary".

    Himari Arisugawa (Cure Custard) 

Himari Arisugawa (Cure Custard)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/himaricustard.png

Voiced by: Haruka Fukuhara

A hard-working second year middle school student. As the Sweets Professor, Himari knows everything about sweets and how they affect your body. She transforms into Cure Custard, who is based off of pudding and squirrels.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: Himari has a deep interest in the science behind baking and is very meticulous in making sure that the measurements for each dessert are absolutely correct.
  • Badass Adorable: She's quite adorable and can kick ass.
  • Catchphrase: "Sweets Are Science!" and "Let Me Explain!"
  • Curtains Match the Window: In both civilian and Cure form, though in civilian form, her brown hair is darker.
  • Day in the Limelight: Episode 13, when she tries to be a reporter.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: The reason why everyone shunned her was because of her knowledge about pudding.
  • Motor Mouth: Can talk endlessly about sweets. In her introduction episode, she literally spends hours lecturing Ichika on the history of pudding.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: A rare aversion in the franchise; as Cure Custard her hair changes color and switches from braids to a side ponytail, but it doesn't grow any longer.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: She's the shortest of the girls, and the most knowledgeable about sweets and cooking.
  • Shrinking Violet: As a child, she was teased for only ever talking about sweets, resulting in her avoiding people in order to not be ridiculed. She actually hid behind a tree when Ichika attempted to apologize after she hit her accidentally.
  • Single-Issue Wonk: Bring up her beloved custard pudding and she'll talk your ear off.
  • Situational Sociability: Himari can have quite the Motor Mouth when she is with people she trusts, but becomes painfully shy with strangers or when she has to talk in public.
  • The Smart Girl: Her love for sweets caused her to do extensive research about them, making her very insightful.
  • Super Speed: During her debut fight, she runs around really fast as part of her animal-based abilities.

    Aoi Tategami (Cure Gelato) 

Aoi Tategami (Cure Gelato)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aoigelato.png

Voiced by: Tomo Muranaka

An enthusiastic second year middle school student. She loves freedom and singing, and is the vocalist of a rock band. She transforms into Cure Gelato, who is based off of ice cream and lions.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: Male lions are usually the only ones with manes (there have been female lions with manes, but they're very rare), but the mane still features prominently into Gelato's design.
  • Big Fancy House: She lives in one. Himari describes it as like a castle in Episode 14.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In episode 27, Aoi falls under Elisio’s control and begins to cause a rampage on the rock festival.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm getting fired up!" and "Woooah!" (The latter sounds like a lion's roar.)
  • Cool Crown: As Cure Gelato, she wears a tiny, gold hoop crown with a scoop of ice cream in it, likely because the lion is known as the "king of the jungle".
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her eyes and hair are both blue, for both civilian and Cure forms.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She has these in civilian form and Cure form, to further add to her wildcat-like qualities.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: As Cure Gelato, she wears one sock up and one sock rolled down. As well, her ice cream-themed skirt is blue and vanilla.
  • Genius Ditz: Downplayed. She's not ditzy per se, but given how her behavior can be very unpredictable on a normal basis with her energy and strength, the team is surprised to hear that her grades are among the best in her school and even more surprised to hear that such a feat is easy.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a yellow ribbon to hold up her ponytail in her civilian form.
  • Hot-Blooded: Despite being a blue Cure with ice-based powers, she has a very active and aggressive personality, especially with her "I'm getting fired up!" Catchphrase.
  • An Ice Person: Her Cure powers are ice-based.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: As Cure Gelato, Aoi can produce an ultrasonic scream, an appropriate power for a lion-themed rock singer.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: She's a pretty slim girl who can also throw tables through walls by pure accident.
  • Nice Girl: She's kinda of a rebel rock band girl physically but she has a courageous and kindful heart when she's introduced in episode 3 standing up for Ichika and Himari at the rock concert when they were rudely cut in line by two high school boys who then bullied them which Aoi intervened and tell them off.
  • Rebellious Princess: Well, more like "rebellious daughter of the head of a famous business company", but it functions the same way. She would much rather be playing rock music with her band and hanging out with friends than attending parties held at her house and wearing dresses and makeup.
  • Secretly Wealthy: Actually from a high-class family, but nobody knew until episode 14.
  • Slipknot Ponytail: While all the Cures who have their hair up have this trope applied to them when they transform, Aoi willingly pulls off her hair ribbon when she transforms, the ribbon disappearing when she tosses it away.
  • Smarter Than You Look: She casually mentions that her test scores rank among the top five at her school.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She has a ponytail in her civilian form, and she's one of the more tomboyish of the girls along with Akira. As Cure Gelato, it gets bigger and bushier to the point that it resembles a lion's mane.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She makes candy with the rest of the girls, but she participates in the parts that require her muscular strength. Also, she's very brash, and known to be brave and free like a "lion".
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Type A in her civilian attire, but as a Cure she oddly has one sock pulled up and the other rolled down, making a mix of Types A and E.

    Yukari Kotozume (Cure Macaron) 

Yukari Kotozume (Cure Macaron)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yukarimacaroon.png

Voiced by: Saki Fujita

A beautiful yet noble second year high school student. She transforms into Cure Macaron, who is based off of macarons and cats.
  • The Ace: Is known around the city for being able to do anything.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Really skirts the line. The events of Episode 25 has her interactions with Akira painted in a romantic light not to mention her duet with Akira in the vocal album being titled Macaronage of Love and Excitement.
  • Batman Gambit: She noted how Rio always seems to know a lot about the girls, and notes the same about Julio. To confirm her suspicions, she lures Rio into talking to her one on one and she gives him false information. He takes the bait, and he can't resist using it to deliver a Breaking Speech to her when they duel. The ruse works, and he ends up giving her evidence that Rio and Julio are the same person.
  • Catchphrase: "How Interesting" and "Fufufu..." She also tends to answer compliments with "I got that a lot."
  • Cat Girl: All the Cures gain animal ears and tails when they transform, though since she gains cat ears and a tail as Cure Macaron, she's essentially this. She's also described as being selfish and arrogant like a cat. She even becomes a literal/actual cat as of episode 34, though by the effect of her crystal animal knocking her down upside her forehead, although she does go back to normal towards the end of the episode.
  • Curtains Match the Window: For both civilian and Cure forms.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Besides her horde of female fans from her school, Ichika was notably enraptured by her beauty during their first proper meeting. Himari also seemed a little starstruck when describing the two of them "getting closer" during episode 29.
  • Expy: Her mature and elegant appearance while also finding pleasure in trolling others makes her very similar to Michiru Kaiou.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: A variant; she's the Lipstick Feline to Akira's Butch Mutt.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: The most elegant and sophisticated member of the team, she has purple as her signature color.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Inverted with her as she is able to sense something wrong with Rio almost immediately, although she keeps quiet.
  • It Amused Me: Because she can instantly master just about anything she tries, Yukari gets bored easily. She sticks around Ichika because she finds her "interesting".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yukari might come off as a troll and quite aloof who finds Ichika and her friends to be "interesting" to have company around but as she spends time with them, she immediately starts to enjoys every day being with them because of themselves and they make her happy as friends genuinely. After that, she shows her 'heart of gold' strongly around them.
  • Jumped at the Call: She gets bored easily, so becoming a Cure was the perfect opportunity.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She is really close to crossing the line, and is elegant, refined and has the personality of a princess.
  • Masculine–Feminine Gay Couple: A more implicit variant, her apparent relationship with Akira has this dynamic.
  • Ojou: Aoi may have the money, but Yukari has the demeanor and personality befitting the archetype.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Yukari is usually one of the hardest shells to crack in the team due to her aloof and trollish personality, which makes the moments when she acts otherwise all the more prevalent. She deliberately acts vulnerable in Episode 16 to goad Julio into exposing his true identity, but Episode 25 has her acting like this for most of the episode, revealing some of her hidden insecurities to Akira.
  • The Perfectionist: She gets upset/obsessive when she can't do something perfectly, as shown when her first attempts at making macarons failed. Later becomes a deconstruction in Episode 16 as being The Perfectionist causes her to wonder what she truly likes anymore, something Julio points out when he attempts to break her.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Downplayed; as Cure Macaron, her hair only grows slightly longer and gains more volume.
  • Ship Tease: A lot of it with Akira. So much so that Akira confesses to her in Episode 25 while they were fighting Erisio. She shows signs of reciprocating by the end of the episode when her heart is shown to be sparkling.
  • The Smart Girl: Not obvious at first since she often keeps to herself, but she's the second most prominent one in the team after Himari. While not as knowledgeable as Himari in regards to making sweets, Yukari has the cleverness and craftiness that allows her to think outside the box and help the Cures and KIRAKIRA Patisserie in roundabout ways. She is also the one who deduces who Rio is.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Akira's Tomboy. Akira's more interested in boyish activities and acts like a knight, while Yukari is interested in girl activities, has the personality of a princess, but is the feminine of the two. A woman who confused them for a couple even called her a caring woman to her boyfriend.
  • Troll: A combination of this and The Gadfly. She knew from the first mention of her name that Ichika's new crush was a girl, but never said anything, preferring to watch and smirk. When a cake overheated in the kitchen, she calmly slid out of the way while all four of the other girls got covered in soot from its explosion. And she teased Ichika mercilessly about whether or not she actually wanted to help run the KiraPati. Yukari's trolling game is strong.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Being subject to talking to her own darkness in Episode 29 reveals that she secretly feels lonely despite always being in the presence of others because they only shower her with praise and don't bother to get to know her on a deeper level. Because of this, she shows jealousy of others being able to enjoy their lives and resents them for it. However, she acknowledges and accepts this part of her because even though her darkness won't go away, she has found solace in the new world she has found herself in thanks to her fellow Cures and will continue to enjoy the new life she has created with her own hands.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: As Cure Macaron, her boots go all the way to her thighs. This gives very little distance between them and the hem of her skirt.

    Akira Kenjou (Cure Chocolat) 

Akira Kenjou (Cure Chocolat)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akirachocolat.png

Voiced by: Nanako Mori

A gentle, boyish second year high school student. She transforms into Cure Chocolat, who is based off of chocolates and dogs.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Although she's near crossing the line. In Episode 25, she outright says that she loves Yukari and in Macaronage of Love and Excitement, she says that the reason she wants to protect Yukari is because "[Akira loves] her".
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's cool-headed and doesn't get terribly angry a lot, but mess with her sister, and she channel she inner dog, Julio learns this the hard way.
  • Bifauxnen: She looks very masculine in both her civilian and Cure forms. Her Cure form even has some elements of a typical "prince" outfit.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her short hair goes with her Bifauxnen image. It doesn't stay when she gets older, as she lets her hair grow long enough to put into a ponytail.
  • Butch Lesbian: She is really close to crossing the line, and is outgoing, headstrong, and acts like a male knight.
  • Catchphrase: "Are you okay?" and "There there".
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: She often drops things she's doing at the time so she can help other people. When an old woman lost her emerald in episode 10, she drops to her hands and knees to search the stone until she looks disheveled. That despite she and Yukari are tasked to search for fruits for their tart.
  • Combat Stilettos: Wears animal-toed heels in Cure form.
  • Cool Big Sis: Not just to her real little sister Miku (she's even staying with her grandmother so that her parents could live closer to her hospitalized sister) but she looks out for the younger Cures in a protective manner.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In her civilian form. In Cure form her eyes are magenta, though.
  • Expy: A lot of her characteristics are easily similar towards Itsuki Myoudouin. The big difference is that she's actually getting in on the fun and heroics much faster than Itsuki did.
    • She also brings to mind Haruka Tenou who dresses like a boy most of the time and is very protective towards those she cares about.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: A variant; she's the Butch Mutt to Yukari's Lipstick Feline.
  • Friend to All Children: Episode 29 reveals she's very good with kids, which probably stems from how much she dotes on her little sister.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Akira" is a unisex name that is more commonly used for males, which is fitting for a Bifauxnen character.
  • Instant Fan Club: Also has a horde of her female classmates following her about.
  • Irony: Cure Chocolat is based off of a dog. Chocolate is notoriously toxic to dogs.
  • Love Confession: When Erisio is trying to break her in Episode 25 by asking her why she would risk her body and life to protect Yukari, Akira responds with this:
  • Masculine–Feminine Gay Couple: A more implicit variant, her apparent relationship with Yukari has this dynamic.
  • Nice Girl: Well-meaning, politeful and friendly lady who's willing to go to great lengths to help everyone.
  • Nice Hat: As Cure Chocolat, she wears a top hat that looks as though it's made out of chocolate.
  • The Nose Knows: As Cure Chocolat, she has a very strong sense of smell, relating to her dog motif.
  • Ship Tease: A lot of it with Yukari. She confesses to Yukari in Episode 25 while fighting Erisio during the climax of the episode. Made even more evident when Ciel is talking about how love makes hearts sparkle.
  • Skirt over Slacks: As Cure Chocolat, she's the first one to use this since the DokiDoki! PreCure team. Her pre-transformation outfit is also a short dress with shorts underneath, unlike the long dress the other Cures are seen wearing.
  • Skunk Stripe: In Cure form, she has a single brown streak amongst her bright red hair.
  • Take The Third Option: In Episode 30, Erisio forces Akira to choose between protecting Miku or saving all of the other attendees from having their kirakiraru completely drained. Akira's solution? Use her own kirakiraru to overload the device that's draining their kirakiraru, thus saving both parties.
  • Team Mom: Seems to be one towards the team. She knows her way around places which means the others can rely on her, and she is gentle and has a strong sense of justice like a "dog".
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Yukari's Girly Girl. Akira's more outgoing, headstrong, and acts like a male knight, yet is frequently teased with Yukari in the show. In fact, episode 16 had Yukari give Akira a hakata (which is normally worn for boys) because she picked clothing that represented their personality.
  • Tomboyish Voice: Has a low, deep voice, fitting with her Bifauxnen nature.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: At the end of episode 6. All of the other Cures except Ichika figure out she's female at some point. Ichika needs it explicitly told to her from her father before she made the connection.

    Ciel Kirahoshi/Kirarin (Cure Parfait) 

Ciel Kirahoshi (Cure Parfait)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/img_1905.PNG

Voiced by: Inori Minase

A well-known patissier prodigy from Paris. She decides to come to Japan to let the rest of the world try her sweets. She is actually a fairy like Pekorin who goes by the name Kirarin. She traveled overseas to learn more about making sweets. She transforms into Cure Parfait, who is based off of a Pegasus and parfaits.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: A lighthearted example. Upon finding out that Ichika and the others are the Pretty Cure, she, in her fairy form, proceeds to grovel in a similar fashion to Ichika a couple episodes earlier and asks them if she could be their student.
  • Ascended Fangirl: She thrives to become a Precure and becomes just that in Episode 23 at last.
  • Brutal Honesty: Doesn't hesitate to say that the treat Ichika made for her was "catastrophically unbalanced". Her comment on Pikario's waffles was what drove him straight into Noir's hands.
  • Clark Kenting: The only thing she wears to hide her identity in public is a pair of sunglasses.
  • Combat Stilettos: She gains high heels in her Cure form like the other Cures, though hers resemble horse's hooves.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: She has stars for pupils, indicating that she isn't human.
  • Fangirl: Judging from her reactions to seeing them in Episode 20, she is one for the Pretty Cure. As a fairy, she had looked up to them more than anyone else and is ecstatic to finally meet them in the flesh.
  • Freudian Slip: During episode 20, she accidentally lets out a "~kira" at the end of her sentence after being saved by the Precure.
  • Gratuitous French: Given that she's from France, this is to be expected.
  • Meaningful Name: Ciel is the French word for sky while kirahoshi means glittering stars. Her eyes are blue like the sky and she has star shaped pupils.
  • Morphic Resonance: Ciel's pink hairband looks a lot like Kirarin's hair.
  • Multiethnic Name: She has a French given name and a Japanese family name as part of her alias.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Once she realizes that her ignorance of her brother's (Pikario's) efforts to become better at making sweets and impress her are what drove him to become a villain, she breaks down as a result. At that point Ciel sees her true weakness as a patissier: unlike Ichika, her cooking abilities are exceptional, but they don't reach out to the same people that she's trying to inspire.
    Ciel: She (referring to herself), couldn't sense the pain the what Ichika could. The power to embrace people's feelings and return that sparkle.
  • Nice Girl: Very sociable, despite her status as a famous patissier, and believes that sweets can bring happiness to all. Also, though she initially declines the offer of accepting an apprentice, she still offers Ichika a chance to prove herself by expressing herself through sweets and continues to act respectful to her after Ichika fails to impress her.
  • Out of Focus: Outside of the occasional character focus episode, Ciel has very little importance to the plot after she joins the team, to the point where a character episode involves someone questioning her as to why she's even sticking around in Japan. However, given how the seasonal movie takes place in France and involves her as an important character by default, this may have been intentional.
  • Pegasus: Her Animal Motif as Cure Parfait, which is notable compared to how the other Cures are based on real animals.
  • Rainbow Motif: Unlike other Cures, who are associated with one color, Cure Parfait is associated with rainbows.
  • Sixth Ranger: She becomes the sixth member of the team in Episode 23.
  • Supreme Chef: She's the number one patissier in France and both her sweets shop in France and her new establishment in Japan is always filled with people.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The Technician to Ichika's Performer. Ciel focuses on the technical aspects and visual presentations of making sweets, including the taste and combinations, Ichika is really just focused in the "fun" of making sweets and making people happy with them, even if they come out as Ciel says in Episode 20, "ordinary".
  • Teen Genius: She's thirteen years old and is already an experienced patissier who runs her own shop in Paris. However, as Ichika finds out when she reads Ciel's journal, she still had to work hard to get to where she is today.
  • Third-Person Person: Normally averted until she switches to her fairy form, at which point she starts using her name in her sentences.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She became so engrossed in her own training and success that she didn't notice her brother was having a hard time in Paris, nor did she see how much her approval and support meant to him. As a result, Pikario grew more frustrated and lonely, and became an easy target for Noir. Understandably, she's stunned when she finds out.
  • Verbal Tic: She says "~kira" after the end of her sentences in fairy form.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can switch between her fairy form and human form. However, if she gets too hungry, she's forced to turn back into her fairy form.
  • Winged Humanoid: She has wings in her Cure form due to her Pegasus motif.

Allies

    Pekorin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pekorin.png

Voiced by: Mika Kanai

A rather spoiled, dog-like fairy who always seems to be hungry.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Episode 38 centers on Pekorin after she somehow turns into a human. She loses her human form at the end of the episode. Episode 47 also serves as this as she's the only character to still possess free will after Erisio robs everyone of their emotions.
  • Blush Sticker: Her cheeks are always rosy.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: During the Grand Finale, Pekorin manages to become a Pretty Cure and joins the others in the final fight against Erisio.
  • In the End, You Are on Your Own: She's the only notable character aside from Chourou (who can't do much on his own) who isn't affected by Erisio's removal of everyone's emotions in Episode 46. Naturally, the following episode depicts her lone struggle to set everything right again.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: She looks like a mix between a puppy and a kitten, with chubby pink cheeks and huge sparkly eyes.
  • Survivor Guilt: Not that anyone is confirmed dead, but she was the only member of her clan to have come out of the explosion on the mountain. So she is concerned for her missing friends.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She becomes a Cure in Episode 47.
  • Verbal Tic: She ends her sentences with "~peko".

    Chourou 

Voiced by: Yuu Mizushima

An elderly fairy who received the appearance of a ghost after a "cream explosion" incident.
  • Cool Old Guy: Well; cool old fairy, but he still fits the bill as a nice, respectable, and helpful aide to the Cures and Pekorin.
  • Insistent Terminology: Despite his appearance and abilities, he's not a ghost. He's just "insubstantial" at the moment.
  • Verbal Tic: Often ends his sentences with "~jaba."
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can turn into a human as of Episode 8. He remains ghostly, however.

    Genichirou Usami 

Voiced by: Kenjiro Tsuda

Ichika's father. He works at a karate dojo and can easily tell if a little girl is feeling troubled just by looking at them, though he worries that he can't read women his age.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Ichika sometimes sees him as one, mostly due to his meddlesome tendencies. He also shows up at the Sweets Festival in Episode 11, much to her chagrin.
  • Badass Normal: That black belt isn't just for show. In episode 11, he knocks out a powered-up Fueru with a well-aimed kick.
  • Limited Wardrobe: He always wears his karategi.
  • Verbal Backspace: In the first episode, he compliments Ichika's "cookies". When she tells him they were supposed to be sponge cakes, he backpedals and says he meant her cooking was great.

    Satomi Usami 

Voiced by: Yuriko Yamaguchi

Ichika's mother. She is a doctor who goes to small towns and villages around the world, and she often made sweets for Ichika.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Averted. In the penultimate episode, Satomi refers to Ichika by her real name and roots for her and the Precure to save everyone from Elisio's void.
  • Missing Mom: Downplayed. The only thing keeping Ichika's mom from being a doting mother is her work as a doctor, otherwise she still connects with Ichika whenever she can and still makes an impact on the latter to this day, being one of the main reasons why Ichika is as big of a fan of sweets as she is today. It wouldn't be until Episode 31 that she makes her debut into the series proper.
  • Nice Girl: A lovely and friendly mother who loves her husband and daughter even though she works long distance overseas away from them and is quite patient with anyone who is in need of her treatment as a doctor.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: To Ichika. Satomi genuinely misses both her daughter and her husband and tries to finish her work quickly so she can come back home to be with them, sending them letters and sweets in the meantime. She was planning to come home in the first episode but she encountered medical trouble at the airport and thus had to delay her departure, resulting in Ichika becoming upset for a short period of time.
  • Workaholic: As a doctor, she has to travel around the world and help many people. However, taking care of so many responsibilities means that she is away for long periods of time and doesn't have much time to spend with her family.

Akira's younger sister. She has a weak body and is usually hospitalized, but she makes up for her frail constitution with an exuberant personality.
  • Big Sister Worship: She loves her sister with all her heart, although she also possesses enough maturity to back off and insist that Akira take care of other things if she's busy before tending to her.
  • Establishing Character Moment: So Akira is talking about visiting her younger sister and the others wonder what kind of girl she is, with Himari envisioning her as a polite yet charming person. Suddenly, Miku opens the door and greets her big sister with such a loud voice that everyone in the kitchen room is stunned before Akira confirms that the girl is her sister.
  • Genki Girl: Miku is far more outgoing and energetic than her older sister, so much so that people often forget that she normally spends her days in a hospital bed.
  • Ill Girl: It's still unclear as to what disease she has that would leave her hospitalized, but Akira worries over her overexerting herself. She does start coughing in Episode 30 after running around the kitchen for too long, though.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chocolate, no doubt thanks to Akira always giving her some when she comes to visit her. She even always carries a small box of Akira's dog-shaped chocolates wherever she goes.

Villains

The Kirakiraru Thieves

The Starter Villains of the series, they are the evil, mischievous fairies whose goal is to steal kirakiraru from the sweet foods and desserts.
    In General 
  • The Atoner: Atoners, as the case may be. The group parts ways and tracks down the Strawberry Hill fairies, eventually reuniting them as an apology for attacking and scattering them.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: They were under Julio's control the entire time. They get better in Episode 11.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike many of the other Monster of the Week in previous Precure series, these are fully intelligent with personalities of their own. They are not comprised of people or objects, but rather absorb the kirakiraru of their favorite dessert to assume their more monstrous forms. They are also not destroyed when defeated, rather reverting to their fairy forms.
  • Cute Is Evil: Their base forms are mostly Ugly Cute, until they start absorbing kirakiraru.
  • Deal with the Devil: With Julio. He offered them the cursed belts for power in exchange for helping him, and they took it.
  • Easily Forgiven: Justified as they were not in control of themselves back then.
  • Heel–Face Turn: They revert to their normal forms in Episode 11 after the Cures defeat them, freed from Julio's control.
  • Liquid Assets: They can steal the kirakiraru of dessert foods and gain more powerful forms from them.
  • Mark of the Beast: The dark lines around their eyes indicate that they are being corrupted by the dark star belts. After they are freed from their influence, the eye markings disappear.
  • Power-Up Food: Quite literally. They grow by eating the kirakiraru of their favorite desserts to gain more monstrous forms.
  • Starter Villain: They are the first antagonists in the series until Episode 11.
  • Villainous Glutton: They are after any last bit of kirakiraru they can find of any particular type of sweet. This means that they can possibly go after a single piece of food just to absorb the kirakiraru from it.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The belts that Julio gave them to give them power turned them completely nuts.

    Gummy

Voiced by: Yuji Ueda

The first of the Kirakiraru Thieves to be introduced. A purple dragon-like fairy who's on the lookout for Kirakiraru energy in order to become more powerful. He's especially fond of the Kirakiraru that resides in cakes.
  • Deal with the Devil: Accidentally with Julio. He was offered a means of becoming more powerful, and he went insane when he accepted.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In episode 12, they explain how they were being driven wild by the belts from Julio.
  • Metamorphosis Monster: By absorbing Kirakiraru energy, he can go from a cute fairy to a bipedal fighter. And then from that to a hulking beast.

    Julio/Rio Kuroki/Pikario 

Julio (Rio Kuroki)

Click here  to see his appearance as Pikario

Voiced by: Junko Minagawa

A mysterious boy wielding a staff, he controlled Gummy and the other thieves with magical belts, and at one point fused them all together into one monster to fight the Cures. He seems to be seeking the full capabilities of kirakiraru.
  • The Ace: Downplayed. He's instantly popular among the girls at the school, and wins the boys over through his soccer skills.
  • Arc Villain: He was this for the first part of the series. He's responsible for turning innocent fairies like Gummy into evil fairies that caused mayhem for the Cures in the first 11 episodes.
  • BFS: In episode 12, he uses stolen kirakiraru to turn his staff into one. It gets reverted to the staff by the Cures' finisher.
  • Big Bad Friend: "Rio" befriends Ichika and the gang. They don't know he's Julio, but he figures out Cure Whip's true identity quite fast.
  • Big Damn Heroes: After spending a dozen episodes out of commission, he arrives in the nick of time to help the Cures defeat Glaive.
  • Bishōnen: He's quite good looking, especially as Rio.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He acts like a friendly if not mysterious kid at Ichika's school. He is one of the main antagonists and he is ultimately playing them for fools while he secretly hounds them.
  • The Bus Came Back: Once he gets out of his coma in episode 39, he becomes a regular cast member.
  • Chick Magnet: All the girls at school are instantly smitten with Rio due to his good looks and his gallant personality (though the latter is, of course, a facade).
  • Convenient Coma: Right after he reconciles with Ciel and she gains the power to transform into Cure Parfait, Julio takes an arrow meant for her and falls into a deep coma. His body is then taken to the shrine of the legendary Precure to rest and heal, conveniently writing him out of the plot until the writers need his character again.
  • The Corrupter: He used cursed belts to make Gummy and the other thieves go wild for kirakiraru.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He used to cook sweets (waffles in particular), but came to hate them upon seeing Kirarin, his sister, become better at making sweets than him, leaving him as easy prey for Noir.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: He's a Chick Magnet, but during a soccer match with his male classmates (who up until that point disliked him), he outsmarts them and after saving a guy, gets him to blush. He basically impresses them in the end.
  • Evil Knockoff: His "final experiment" turns his staff into a dark version of the Candy Rod, capable of mirroring the Cures' special attacks from the previous few episodes.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Has a Magic Staff that runs on Dark Magic and dresses the part as well.
  • Evil Wears Black: He's decked out in all black when he's facing off against the Cures.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: As Julio, he has 4-pointed stars as highlights that become more visible after his mask breaks. He shares this trait with his sister Kirarin, who also retains these eyes when in her human form.
  • For Science!: Whenever he uses his Magic Staff to steal kirakiraru from people, he says it's for his "experiments."
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: At the end of Episode 21, he sports these when he's about to confront the Precures once again.
  • Good Costume Switch: When he finally returns in Episode 39 to help the Cures, he does so in a brand new white oufit, in stark contrast to the Evil Wears Black look he sported when he served Noir.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Aside from his irises literally being green, he expressed jealousy of his sister's constant successes and developed desire to surpass her. This leads to him being easily swayed by Noir.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Episode 23, he takes a hit by one of Noir's arrow meant for Ciel. This causes him to essentially fade away and fall into a coma at the end of the episode.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In episode 12, his last attack is overpowered thanks to Cure Whip using a technique based off of the mixing he had shown her earlier in the episode.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: As Pikario (both as a fairy and his purified human form), his blue eyes are this. Not so innocent when he was Julio, though.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Pikario remained defiant, rude, and bratty after his purification, refusing to help the Cures even though they were fully accepting of him when they found out who he was. It's only revealed later that his behavior was out of fear that his extended corruption might have permanently tainted him and prevented him from ever producing kirakirau again. He later proves his golden heart when he rushes to the aid of Ciel with Ichika to tell her that his corruption was on him, not because of her, and he takes the arrow shot by Noir meant for Ciel to protect her which initially starts Ciel's transformation into Cure Parfait. Fortunately, he's merely injured and recovers in the shrine.
  • Knight of Cerebus: This anime was borderline Slice of Life until he showed up. Starting with episode 12, things get a lot more dangerous and personal for the Cures.
  • Lethal Chef: According to himself, he's not good at cooking sweets and stopped making and eating them as a result. That was a self-assessment; in reality, he felt like he Can't Catch Up to Ciel's sweet-making prowess and stopped making them out of resentment for his own skills. When he gains his innocence back, we see that he's quite apt at making waffles.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has long blue hair as Julio, although it's much shorter when he's Rio. After being purified, his new human form gives him the same length he had when he was still corrupted.
  • Mad Scientist: When it comes to his motives. The only real reason he has for his actions is to experiment with the powers of the Kirakiraru. He targeted Ichika's friend (and before that, one of his other schoolmates) simply to test out his new BFS and fought the Cures to test it out on them. His goals as far as we know is to simply discover the full potential of the Kirakiraru.
  • Magic Staff: It can turn into different weapons as well by absorbing Kirakiraru.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: As Julio, he wears a golden mask that covers the upper half of his face. He is antagonistic and actively seeks to study Kirakiraru, even at the expense of everyone around him.
  • Morph Weapon: His staff absorbs kirakiraru and turns into various different weapons. They start out simple but get progressively more complex. It's final form before being completely destroyed is an Evil Knockoff of the Candy Rod.
  • Most Definitely Not a Villain: In reality, his actions should definitely indicate something's amiss. He knew who Ichika was the moment they met and had No Sense of Personal Space at first. His civilian sweater resembles that of a High Collar of Doom if you really look at it, and he smiles really weirdly at times. He hears everything that the Cures are talking about and reveals himself to them at times they thought they were alone. Despite this, only Yukari and possibly Akira are suspicious of him.
  • New Transfer Student: He infiltrates Ichika's school by passing himself off as a new student from afar. Post-healing, he continues to attend under the same name.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Until Episode 12, he just stood in the background, first appearing only in episode 11 and the opening credits. This changes come episode 12, where he personally fights the Precure and continues doing so in subsequent episodes.
  • Oh, Crap!: In Episode 16, as he's taunting Cure Macaron, she notes that she gave false information and inquired how he could possibly know of it. His reaction is to gasp, seethe, and grit his teeth in a rage, knowing that he just accidentally outed himself as Julio to her.
  • Rain of Arrows: In Episode 13, he turns his Magic Staff into a bow that can fire multiple arrows from the sky. And they also follow their targets as well.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: As we see in Episode 12, he hates them. Prior to that, Rio told Ichika he wasn't a big fan of sweets. Kind of ironic considering he seems good at telling Ichika how to make them. Once the story starts delving into his pre-corruption history as Pikario, it became apparent that the little fairy's negative feelings towards his own creations were amplified into full blown hatred.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Thanks to the increase in power given to him by Noir, he sports red eyes instead of blue that signal his newfound threat level throughout Episode 22. He even managed to cause an explosion that opened a hole underneath Strawberry Mountain.
  • Redemption Rejection: After the Precures defeat him in Episode 17, Ichika kindly offers to hear his story out while they make cookies together, but Julio sharply refuses before taking off.
  • The Rival: For Ichika when he's Julio. The two's rivalry stems over Ichika wanting kira-kirau to be enjoyed in people which Julio detests, while Julio wants kira-kirau in humans to be used as experiment, which Ichika detests. Whenever Julio fights the Precures, the two mostly fight each other even if it's another character's Day in the Limelight.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": An alternative spelling of his name is "Giulio", which is the Italian version of the same source.
  • Tested on Humans: He "experiments" on humans to discover the full potential of the kirakiraru, leaving them drained and unconscious.
  • Thicker Than Water: Pikario and Ciel had this sort of bond back when she was Kirarin. It's quite telling that she was tempted to darkness more than Noir's own attempts on her when it looked like Post-purification Pikario was permanently corrupted from his time as Julio.
  • Theme Naming: Every form he's taken had the sound "rio" in them: Julio (pronounced with an "r" sound in Japanese), Rio Kuroki, and Pikario.
  • Theme Twin Naming: His original name contains the onomatopoeia for sparkling (pika-pika) to compliment Ciel's name having the word for "shining" (kira-kira).
  • This Was His True Form: After his big reveal as Ciel/Kirarin's twin brother Pikario, he reverts to fairy form when Ichika purifies him in episode 22.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pikario loves waffles. Unfortunately, his Inferiority Superiority Complex over making them against his ultra-talented sister Ciel is what turned helped turn him into Julio, but reconciling with Ciel in later episodes and contributing to her Animal Sweet gives him his waffle love back.
  • Verbal Tic: As Pikario, he ends his sentences with "~pika".
  • Villainous Breakdown: Cure Macaron definitely got him in Episode 16 by faking her having an elder sister and using it to get Rio to reveal himself as Julio, which pisses him off greatly. At the end of the episode, he shouts out the Precures' name in clear rage as he watches over Ichika.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: Ciel and Pikario grow up to become a popular sweets making tag-team, with Pikario's waffles as one of their most popular dishes.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Aside from being more than willing to do battle with the Cures, he does this to Risa, Ichika's classmate in episode 12; Miku, Akira's young sister in episode 15; Yukari's school fangirls in episode 16; and finally Ichika in episode 17 in order to collect Kirakiraru energies from them.

    Bibury 

Bibury

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bibury.png

Voiced by: Chiemi Chiba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bibury_9.png
A mysterious girl and "acquaintance" of Julio, she uses her doll Iru to drain kirakiraru from sweets. She has no concern for experiments and instead wants to deliver the kirakiraru to her master, Noir.
  • Ambiguous Ending: In the epilogue, she's seen in front of Pekorin's donut shop chewing out Glaive who is in human form. While the context of the argument is unclear, it's more than likely that Bibury is still working/hanging out with Pekorin and Chourou.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: After being defeated by Cure Parfait in episode 23, she is sent flying high into the sky over the sea, eventually disappearing and resulting in this.
  • Barrier Warrior: When she fights post-Heel–Face Turn, she uses barriers to help hold off enemies.
  • Big Eater: She's shown eating an impressive amount of cupcakes in Episode 33 and demands that the Cures make thirty more. When Pekorin offers to join her, she raises the number up to forty.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Her default expression is a wide grin, and she is up to no good.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: She dresses like one, with a frilly headband, a puffy-sleeved shirt, a knee-high bell skirt, and mary janes.
  • Evil Is Petty: She really goes out of her way to be a total jerk. First, she puts down and insults Julio. Second, when she uses her brainwashing powers to spread bad rumors, she took it out on an innocent store clerk. Third, when the Kirakira Patisserie regains its customers, she attacks simply because she didn't like it. And lastly, when Ciel got hurt when she attacked her patisserie, she didn't care one bit.
  • Evil Wears Black: Like Julio, her attire is black. She wears a black dress along with a black bonnet.
  • Fusion Dance: Noir gives her this as her power upgrade in episode 23 by fusing her with Iru, her doll, with Bibury inside Iru as a result, to fight the Cures. Unfortunately; Ciel (as Cure Parfait) manages to gain an upper hand and uses her finishing attack against them, defeating Bibury and Iru and releasing them from the fusion power upgrade.
  • Good Costume Switch: After her purification, she changes into a less somber outfit. Her new costume is still predominantly black, but her shirt and underskirt are now light pink, and she wears a white headband with a matching apron.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She was revealed in Episode 23 to have been envious of Julio, declaring herself the only one allowed to receive Noir's love. Noir exploits this to give her a power upgrade to fight the Cures.
  • Hates Being Alone: She hates to be alone as we see in Episode 26. This is how Noir turned her to the dark side as we see that she was all alone as a child and he appeared in front of her and crafted Iru for her. And then she finds out Noir was responsible.
  • Heel–Face Turn: The Cures succeed in destroying Iru in Episode 32, thus purifying Bibury and returning her to normal.
  • Older Than She Looks: Discussed in-universe. Since Bibury was picked up from 100 years in the past and has been in Noir's service ever since, the Cures wonder how old Bibury really is after the latter told them to "respect their elders."
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Bibury? Biburi? Vibry? It's the Riko/Liko debate all over again...
  • Technicolor Eyes: She has yellow irises and red pupils. The red pupils vanish after she is purified.
  • Tsundere: Post-Heel–Face Turn, she shows hints of this. She's still prone to snapping at the Cures but she's far more mellow than before, revealing her softer side when she shares a cupcake with Pekorin and helps out in the kitchen.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She was a small precious child that just wanted to have someone around. Then the fear of being alone kicked in and Noir convinced her to join him.

    Glaive 

Glaive

Voiced by: Hisao Egawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grave_6.jpg
One of Noir's lieutenants, a strong man who is sticking to his rules with nervousness.
  • Ambiguous Ending: In the epilogue, Glaive appears in his human form and is being pushed by Bibury and his minions to help the sweet shop. It's unknown if he accepted their offer.
  • And I Must Scream: After his final defeat, he is imprisoned in one of Erisio's cards. When he's brought back in the finale as the head enforcer of Erisio's emotionless world, he even tells the Precure that he's incapable of disobeying orders.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He acknowledges that he was aware of the shadow in his heart and cites himself as evil to the core.
  • Coat Cape: He wears his jacket over his shoulders. It makes his already broad back look even wider.
  • Cool Car: Noir gave him one. It can fly, produce sonic waves that drain kirakiraru, and has massive disks on top of its rear section. It later gains Diable's head after Glaive captures and merges him with it.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Before being recruited by Noir, he reveals that he was a powerful businessman who earned millions through cruel and selfish intentions. Eventually he was rejected by society for his ruthlessness, making him into a social outcast.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Unlike Noir's other henchmen, who are eerily pale, Glaive's skin is tanned.
  • Enemy Mine: In the penultimate episode, he joins the other characters in giving the Precure kira-kira only because he hates being trapped in Erisio's void more than helping them.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He's on Noir's side as his evil henchman with a huge scar running down past his right eyebrow and eye. They exemplify his evil nature since the Cures lack scars of their own.
  • Japanese Delinquents: His spiky blond hair, fashion sense, Cool Car, and violent personality all fit into the typical image of a yankii.
  • The Social Darwinist: He credits his success as a businessman by being cruel to his underlings and doing whatever it took to come out on top.
  • Yakuza: It isn't outright stated, but flashbacks of him wearing a suit and roughing people up for money heavily imply he was involved in organized crime before becoming one of Noir's underlings.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After he is defeated for the last time, Erisio comes in and traps him, his car, and Diable inside his cards, citing it's his job to gather the darkness Noir cultivates.

    Erisio 

Erisio

Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elisio.jpg
One of Noir's lieutenants, a man who uses cards to come up with attacks aimed at the weakness of PreCure.
  • Becoming the Mask: In the finale, the Precure challenge his claim that he lacks emotions by pointing out the way he sadistically manipulated others. Erisio insists that he was merely imitating humans, but this turns out to be enough to actually give him an echo of a heart.
  • Bishōnen: He's introduced as a handsome man working for Noir.
  • Break Them by Talking: Though he's a skilled combatant in his own right, Erisio's real forte is his ability to listen to the shadows in people's hearts and reveal them to his victim, inflicting enough psychological damage for them to eventually succumb to their own darkness. So far, he's succeeded in brainwashing Aoi for a short period of time and attempted to do the same to Yukari and Akira.
  • Death Dealer: He uses cards as his Weapon of Choice. From them, he can either shapeshift them into other weapons,combine them with stolen kirakiraru to create monsters or worse, he can use them to brainwash any of the Cures like Cure Gelato to do wrong things by taking advantage of their negative emotions.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: He resembles a woman with long silvery hair.
  • The Evils of Free Will: His motivation for overthrowing Noir is to create a truly peaceful and orderly world. He does this by erasing everyone's emotions, believing that love and hate are equally chaotic and that humans are too weak-willed to avoid falling into conflict as long as they possess either.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's quite a polite gentleman compared to Noir and Glaive, but if you are one of the Kirakira Precures, he reveals a sadistic and cunning nature, using his cards as weapons to either attack them or brainwash one of them.
  • Feet-First Introduction: The first thing we see of him are his feet. The way he clicks his heels together establishes him as serious and cold, in contrast with the wilder Glaive.
  • The Heartless: He's actually Noir's original body powered by dark kirakiraru.
  • Power of the Void: By infusing himself with the stolen power of Lumiere and Noir. The people whose emotions he seals away also have completely clear kirakiraru.
  • Put Them All Out of My Misery: When the people of Ichigozaka have their emotions restored by the Precure, he decides that the only way to truly give humanity a 'peaceful' world is this. He absorbs the entire Earth into his heart where they'll fade away in their sleep, and once Erisio's own body crumbles to dust in the vacuum of space, they'll cease to exist.
  • Rapunzel Hair: His long braid reaches past his knees.
  • The Starscream: He overthrows Noir in Episode 46 and becomes the new Big Bad for the final episodes. He also absorbs Diable and Glaive into his cards after their defeats.

    Diable 

Diable

Voiced by: Ryouta Takeuchi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/diable.jpg
A servant of Noir that has followed him since he first appeared 100 years ago. Though it was presumed to have been defeated by the ancient Pretty Cure, it has come back to carry out its master's will once again.
  • And I Must Scream: Suffers this twice.
    • First, he is captured by Glaive and forcibly merged into his Cool Car in order to make it stronger.
    • Second, he is imprisoned inside one of Erisio's cards after Glaive is defeated for the last time.
  • The Dreaded: Its very presence is enough to darken the kirakiraru in the surrounding environment and make friendly people turn on each other. Even Glaive and Erisio show unease looking at him, with Erisio saying that it's like "staring into the heart of Noir himself."
  • Savage Wolves: Takes on the form of a shadowy canine, though only manifesting the front half of its body at first. Though in episode 36, his body was manifested which looked completely human with some animal features.
  • Undying Loyalty: He will serve no other being except Noir, stating as such when he violently rejects Glaive's offer of serving him instead.

    Noir 

Noir

Voiced by: Yoku Shioya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noir.png
The main antagonist of the series. Julio, Bibury, Diable, Grave, and Elisio all serve under him.
  • Big Bad: He's the real one, who's responsible for giving Julio his Magic Staff (both times), and both Julio and Bibury are his servants. Unfortunately, he doesn't keep the role, as Elisio overthrows him and becomes the main villain for Episodes 46-48.
  • The Corrupter: He took advantage of Pikario's vulnerability, luring him to the dark side with sweet words and promises of power.
  • Evil Is Petty: His motives, once revealed He was upset that Lumiere wouldn't promise to make sweets only for him so he decided to destroy what she loved
  • Manipulative Bastard: His speciality. He lured Pikario to the dark side by taking advantage of his insecurities and resentment towards Kirarin, turning him into Julio with promise of his own power. He nearly turns Ciel to the dark side by taking advantage of her self-hate and guilt regarding Pikario. And finally, he exploited Bibury's love for him and her jealousy of Julio to give her a power upgrade to fight the Cures.
  • More Than Mind Control: Noir's brand of manipulation. He exploits the negative emotions of emotionally vulnerable people to get them on his side. This is evident as, even after some break free of his grasp, still retain numerous negative emotions, like greed, anger, and jealousy.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He didn't appear until Episode 21, letting his servants do the dirty work for him. Subverted in Episode 23 where he actually does something.
  • Super Empowering: He is the one who crafted Julio's Magic Staff, Bibury's Demonic Dummy Iru, and Glaive's Cool Car, granting them the ability to steal kirakiraru and use it for evil deeds.
  • Was Once a Man: Seems he was once human, in a flashback as of episode 46.
  • White Mask of Doom: He wears a white mask which physically resembles a white human skull as he first appears to Julio.
  • Yandere: Strongly gives vibes of this trope in Episode 46's flashback, as he demands Lumiere to cook sweets only and solely for him, implying that he wants her all for himself. When she refuses to, all hell breaks loose.
