The Player (default name: Sabrina)
You, of course. Sabrina is an Ordinary High-School Student until her Alternate Self bursts through her wardrobe and claims to be a princess escaping the Ball at St. Lyon's, as she absolutely hates dancing. So, naturally, the two of you trade places for a month and you're suddenly surrounded by a Cast Full of Pretty Boys, who just happen to be the alternate selves of some boys in your school...
- And Your Reward Is Clothes
- Audience Surrogate
- Big Eater: Several of her responses involve food.
- But Thou Must!: There's no way you can refuse Princess Sabrina's offer of trading places with her.
- Costume Tropes
- Bare Your Midriff: Some of the outfits, most notably the Silver Belt.
- Cute Witch: The Witch's Hat transforms your dress into this outfit.
- Ermine Cape Effect / Gold Makes Everything Shiny: The gold necklace.
- Joshikousei: Her regular outfit. The Flower Hairpin, too.
- Odango Hair: The Silk Ribbons.
- Opera Gloves: The Gold Necklace.
- Pimped-Out Dress
- Princesses Prefer Pink: Your default dress is pink, and so are some of the alternate dresses.
- Requisite Royal Regalia
- Transformation Trinket
- Curtains Match the Window: To differentiate her from Princess Sabrina.

The Princess (default name: Sabrina)
A Rebellious Princess of the Flower Kingdom who loathes the idea of training for the Ball at St. Lyon's, Sabrina begs you to trade places with her for exactly a month before it's over.
- Alternate Self: To the protagonist - she's a princess in this case.
- Book Dumb: Got a zero on one of her tests.
- Everything's Better with Princesses
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Her throwing Sabrina into a fish-out-of-water-situation, obviously. Then the princess almost gets Sabrina permanently barred from dancing by showing up and revealing who is who. She manages to fix that mistake, though.
- Please Spare Him, My Liege!: When your secret is found out and you are barred from dancing with your partner ever again, it's the princess who appeals to the king to convince him to overturn his decision.
- Rebellious Princess
- The Runaway: And running away from dancing at that, although that's explained by the fact that she hates her dancing lessons and is apparently not too good at them, and because she wasn't given a choice about it.
- Transformation Trinket: Her tiara. Most accessories, actually.
- Twin Switch: Or Interdimensional Alternate Self Switch, whichever.
Kip Hamoon Stallon the 777th
Your royal adviser who does often try to tutor you, but often fails.
- Fairy Companion
- Mr. Exposition
- King Bob the Nth: Not royalty, but still. 777!
- Talking Animal: Justified, as this is totally normal in the Flower Kingdom.
- Non-Human Sidekick
Normally a short humanoid rabbit, he can use magic to grow to the size of a prince. He's actually one of the best dancers in the kingdom, and serves as your teacher. He also has some sort of secret...
- Baleful Polymorph: His rabbit form is the result of a curse put on him by a witch. If you dance with him at the ball as a result of rejecting all other potential partners, the curse is lifted and he becomes human once again.
- Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: He wears a spiffy top hat and waistcoat, yet no pants or shoes.
- The Mentor: Serves as your dance instructor.
- Nice Hat
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted, he's an extremely nice guy.
- Waistcoat of Style
One of the princes, who seems to be shallow and womanizing, but naturally there's more to him than meets the eye. He's also pretty romantic, and he will stay faithful to you anyhow.
- Alternate Self: His alternate self is a Chick Magnet classmate of Sabrina's named Carlos.
- The Casanova
- Chick Magnet
- Hidden Depths: Despite flirting with everything that moves, he does, surprisingly, have limits. If you respond to his joke about being his ruler by asking him to bow before you, he refuses on the grounds that he doesn't like the idea of bowing to his lady. Also, like the other partners, Cesar stands up for you when you're revealed to be a replacement for the princess.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Purple-haired, in fact.
The sixth prince, he'll only show up after you beat the game once. Like Luciano, he's fairly hard to get as a partner, but unlike Luciano, this is due to his complete disinterest in dancing. He'll warm up with a little encouragement from you.
- Alternate Self: His counterpart in the real world is Sabrina's bookish classmate Keith.
- Defrosting Ice King
- Friend to All Living Things
- New Game+: You can only pursue him after you've beaten the game once.
- The Quiet One
- Stoic Spectacles
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Initially appears very aloof, but is a really nice guy once you get to know him.
The most popular prince in the game, Klaus embodies Prince Charming through and through. In fact, he's the only prince to start the game with a partner other than you, as well as his personal Instant Fan Club that follows him everywhere.
- The Ace
- Alternate Self: Resident Big Man on Campus and star athlete Kyle.
- Chick Magnet: Much to his dismay.
- Instant Fan Club
- Nice Guy: So much.
- Prince Charming: The straightest example of this trope in this entire game.
- Victorious Childhood Friend: To the princess, actually, if you beat the game with him. You have to set off a specific chain of events involving the emerald necklace in your bedroom to find this out.
Liam loves his sister very much. And by "very much," we really do mean very much. But other than that, he's pretty much the ideal dance partner - unfailingly polite, perpetually smiling, and always there for dance practice.
- Alternate Self: His alternate self is Sabrina's kind classmate Leon.
- BrotherSister Incest: Oh, dear. Subverted, however; he never actually does anything incestuous, and if you romance him he clarifies that you don't really look like his sister upon closer examination, so he's in love with you for real.
- Curtains Match the Window: He has green eyes and green hair, and he's very fond of plant.
- Nice Guy: It's in his name.
- Real Men Wear Pink: He loves gardening.
- Replacement Goldfish: He tells you you remind him of his sister Olive. If you beat the game with him, he'll tell you you don't look like her after all.
One of the best dancers in the entire game with an attitude to match, Luciano is one of the hardest partners to snag (as he won't even look at you until you push yourself to superhuman levels). But as mentioned, he's one of the best.
- Alternate Self: Your character's childhood friend Lucas.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Acts like this at first, and he is renowned as an extremely talented dancer.
- Defrosting Ice King
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Somewhat.
- No Sense of Direction: Very, very badly. He refuses to acknowledge this, though. Catherine thinks this is endearing.
- Put on a Bus: Whether you like it or not, he will leave halfway through the game to join the World Dance Competition, and to get him back you have to set off a very specific chain of events.
- The Bus Came Back: In certain cases. It requires a lot of patience.
- Tsundere: A pretty obvious Type A - he's extremely grouchy and unfriendly until he warms up to you.
- Victorious Childhood Friend: If the player beats the game with him and declines his offer to marry him, his Earth counterpart Lucas is this.
Goes by "Vince". The youngest dance partner in the game, who's a pretty nice kid but can be quite the jerk. He loves to play pranks on people, and often doesn't show up to practice.
- Alternate Self: Sabrina's classmate and resident class clown Victor.
- Adorably Precocious Child
- Hidden Depths: He may not act like it, but there's more to him than prankster-dom. For example, when the kingdom eventually discovers that you're not really the princess, Vince sticks up for you like any of the other partners would.
- Idiot Hair
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold
- Meaningful Name: In the Japanese version, his name is Kid.
- Older Than They Look: That kid most definitely does not look fourteen.
- Token Mini-Moe
- Trickster Archetype: Extremely fond of pranking.
A girl from the Flower Kingdom who has a reputation for being a liar and a troublemaker.
- Bad Liar
- Character Development: Thanks to the main character.
- Defeat Means Friendship
- Fiery Redhead
- Girlish Pigtails: Although she's not that girly.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Which eventually motivates her to discover your secret and then reveal it to everyone...which doesn't work, since no one believes her.
- Hair Decorations: The ribbons she uses to tie her hair with.
- I Just Want to Have Friends
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: You can change her into this.
Klaus's dance partner at the beginning, who is a kind and gentle soul.
Lauren and Brenda
A pair of girls who follow Klaus everywhere.
- Beauty Mark: Brenda has one at the corner of her mouth.
- Fangirl: Both of them, for Klaus.
- Girlish Pigtails: Lauren
- Noblewoman's Laugh
- Stalker with a Crush: Played for laughs.
- Ojou: The negative side of this trope.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Brenda.
The honorable king of the Flower Kingdom and Sabrina's father. Stern yet kind.
Your friend from school. Her commentary on the guys in your class in the beginning of the game provides for some useful exposition.
Liam's sister, who has fallen ill prior to the events of the game.
Vince's "friend," who doesn't exactly fit the poster nice guy bill.
