    Jewlie/Jewlulu 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jewlie_1.png

Voiced by: Reina Ueda

The older sister of Janice and the current Idol Goddess in PriPara. She is very calming and kind with a slightly naive nature. She is mature when the time calls for it and handles overseeing the Grand Prix, deciding which Idols stand a chance at obtaining the Kami Idol title. She lived in the Rosette Tact found by Laala and was raised by her, causing her to become very clingy and childish in Laala's presence. She passes her title onto Janice at the end of the season, now working as the one to give girls their PriTickets when she believes they are ready. She uses the brand Rosette Jewel.

  • Anime Hair: Same as her sister. It is composed of wavy hair worn in one thick ponytail that splits into pigtails near the bottom, held by braided hair. Sticking out of this is a thick loop of hair on each side of the head, and a bun on top. The bangs are combined into the forelocks, which reach the chest.
  • Cry Cute: Well aware that she won't be seen by anyone after the current Grand Prix, Jewlie was heartbroken at the thought of never seeing Laala again. Before vanishing in what she assumed was their final time together, she embraced Laala, causing them to both break down.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to Janice's responsible. While Jewlie isn't as bad as most cases, she does share things in common with other known older siblings in the series, mainly Laala, most-likely due to being raised by her.
  • Hair Decorations: Usually jeweled or feathered accessories.
  • Secret Identity: Only for Valentines day, when she changes her appearance to that of a young Idol in PriPara to give SoLaMi Smile candy she made. While she keeps her forehead marking, her eye color changed to match her temporary hair color and style.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She and Janice look like twins because they share the exact same appearance. The only things different being their hair color, eye shape and color, and their outfit colors.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: A common trope for Rosette Jewel, featuring extremely elaborate costumes covered in gems, and accents of rainbow or gold.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: In episode 94, Jewlie reveals that she is Jewlulu in her true form.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pale mint.

    Janice 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/janice.png

Voiced by: Aki Toyosaki

The younger sister and past unit mate of the current Idol Goddess, Jewlie. While she is elegant and regal in her appearance like her sister, she lacks her kindness, showing a much more stoic and professional personality. She was the cause for Chiri's change in idol form, having been living in the Rosette Tact until Chiri refused to help her commit theft of the Cyalume Tact. She uses the brand Rosette Jewel.

  • Anime Hair: Same as her sister. It is composed of wavy hair worn in one thick ponytail that splits into pigtails near the bottom, held by braided hair. Sticking out of this is a thick loop of hair on each side of the head, and a bun on top. The bangs are combined into the forelocks, which reach the chest.
  • Big Little Sister: This allows her to bond with Non, who both share a lot in common, as do their older sisters.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Her resentment of Jewlie and stoic nature melted over the season.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: While Jewlie isn't that bad, Janice was always the serious and focused one.
  • Hair Decorations: Usually jeweled or feathered accessories.
  • Heel–Face Turn: This allows her to reconnect with Jewlie, befriend NonSugar, and obtain the current title of the official Goddess of PriPara when Jewlie passes it down to her.
  • Secret Identity: Only for Valentine's Day, when she changes her appearance to that of a young Idol in PriPara to give NonSugar candy she made. While her eyes and forehead marking remain the same, she wears an outfit that appears to be a combination of Chiri's and her normal attire. Her hair is also vastly different, but before the group could connect who she is, she runs away.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She and Jewlie look like twins because they share the exact same appearance, the only things different being their hair color, eye shape and color, and their outfit colors. They are not confirmed to be twins, however, with Jewlie being older than her.
    • This also connects her to the role of an Evil Twin, due to her darker color scheme, initial evil plans, and cold demeanor.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: A common trope for Rosette Jewel, featuring extremely elaborate costumes covered in gems, and accents of rainbow or gold.

    Ajimi Kiki 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ajimi.png

Voiced by: Reina Ueda

Ajimi is a new teacher at Paprika Academy who first appears in Season 2. A creative and extremely hyper girl despite her age, she is obsessed with art and tracking down an "old friend". She gains a friendship with Cosmo over their shared interest in design, and in Season 3 she and Cosmo form a unit with Chanko.

  • Anime Hair: When she was younger her hair resembled a pineapple.
  • Genki Girl
  • Girlish Pigtails: Worn in thick low braids.
  • Hair Decorations: Usually a small hat, bow, or a paint palette.
  • Loony Friends Improve Your Personality: Tried this on Hibiki, but caused her to fear her instead.
  • Mad Artist: Benign example. She may mess up property or make a mess of things but she never causes intentional harm.
  • Meaningful Name: "Ki" means yellow, while Ajimi, can mean Taste.
  • Meganekko: One of the only main characters to wear glasses. She also wears them while in PriPara and performing.
  • Older Than They Look: She appears to be a young teenager, but is actually in her 20s and teaches at Paprika Academy.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie
  • Significant Birth Date: November 3rd, which is celebrated as Culture Day in Japan.
  • Token Adult: Not counting Cosmo, who has always had a side character role, Ajimi is the only main character idol past the age of 16.
  • Verbal Tic: Often adds "-Da Vinci" to her statements.
  • Womanchild: Despite being in her 20s, she behaves like a hyperactive child.
  • Yandere: Played for laughs. She is obsessed with Hibiki to the point of coming off as a stalker at various points in the series despite scaring Hibiki and making her uncomfortable. She also had a "ketchup scene" reminiscent of a yandere attack.

    Sophie's Fanclub 

Chanko is voiced by: Chinatsu Akasaki

Sadako is voiced by: Aina Kusuda

A group of girls who idolize "Sophie-sama" and protect her at all costs led by Sadako with Chanko used for brute force measures. After Sophie became independent the group officially disbanded from her, although they remain loyal fans and friends.

  • Amazon Brigade
  • Ascended Fangirl: All of them and they act as Sophie's personal bodyguards, namely Sadako and Chanko, the latter which is the first idol Sophie traded PriTickets with. They are also idols themselves and have different coords beneath their jackets.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Chanko, who's got a heavier build, is apparently a famed gravure idol in Season 2. This seems to be played more for laughs, as only Meganee is ever seen taking photo shoots of her.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Sophie from Usagi and his pandas and later joins Lala's company along with Cosmo.
  • Black Cloak: Their pink jackets are black underneath and they are reversible. They put them on inside out (and wear pants from out of nowhere) to rescue Sophie when she goes back to her 'Fancy Mode'.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Played literally straight on their jackets and their accessories. And guess what the "S" stands for?
  • Character Development: When Sophie is struggling with her real and stage personalities, they start to show concern for her.
    • Since officially disbanding from personally following Sophie, Chanko has continued to show a fair amount of this, having gone on to reveal she is a Gravure model and later joins a unit with Ajimi and Cosmo.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: The fanclub already appears in the premier but they are introduced in the next episode.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Chanko.
  • Fat and Skinny: Chanko and Sadako fit this trope to a T.
  • Fat Girl/Fat Idiot: Chanko, one of Sophie's fanclub members, who can act like a sumo wrestler. She also appears to be the latter trope until Episode 12, when she helps Laala with her plans to save Sophie.
  • Hollywood Restraining Order: They originally didn't let anyone get near their beloved idol.
  • In-Series Nickname: Sadako boastfully calls the fanclub "Sophie's Royal Guard" and calls herself its commander.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Invoked in a figurative sense, particularly by their leader Sadako. A visual aid of a knight is even provided.
  • Meganekko: One of them is this.
  • Satellite Character: Except for Chanko, and somewhat Sadako.
  • Secret Keeper: They were aware of Sophie's "fancy mode" and trained themselves to see to it at all costs that nobody else found out.
  • Those Two Girls: Sadako and Chanko who are so far the only named members of the club. Unlike the others who wear the same blue dress, they have their own idol outfits.
  • Undying Loyalty: While fending off Usagi's pandas from Sophie to run away, they tell her that they like her no matter who she is.
  • Verbal Tic: One from Chanko who uses her own name (~chanko).

    Eiko 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eiko.png

Voiced by: Sarah Emi Bridcutt

Eiko is a tennis player who met Laala shortly after her debut and was surprised to see her true form outside of PriPara. After protecting Laala from Headmistress Gloria finding her, Eiko and Laala quickly struck up a friendship. She is very kind and perky but easily discouraged at times.

  • Ascended Fangirl: She is Laala's first fangirl and quickly pledged loyalty to her after snapping Friend Tickets.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After beating Love in a tennis match, they become friends.
  • Expy: Bears some resemblance to Aira from Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream. More notable as her unnamed teammates bear a resemblance to Mion and Rizumu, perhaps making the team as a whole a throwback to MARS.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Sometimes, she can be seen in the crowd for a few seconds during the girls' performance.
  • Genki Girl: A small one at best. She is exciteful and is implied to be a Pop-type idol by the outfits she wears.
  • Hair Decorations: A candy of some sort usually.
  • Miss Exposition: Tells Lala about the hidden barrier that surrounds PriPara and blocks Gloria from entering it.
  • Passionate Sportsgirl
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Eiko was Laala's first fan and played a major role in her debut episode. Her dark green eyes compliment her light red hair.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Love's Tomboy.

Voiced by: Yukiko Morishita

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

A retired trio unit that last performed three years prior to the series. Originating from Pretty Rhythm, the unit is made up of Aira, Mia, and Naru.

  • Continuity Nod: All of them are the protagonists from the show's predecessor.
  • The Faceless: In the anime itself, they often had a heavy shadow covering most of their features. However, in the first movie they appear in person. They come back for more in Idol Time PriPara.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Naru and Aira both are pink themed, while Mia is red themed but had a lot of pink accenting her attire.
