The main character and leader of the Smile Precure. Miyuki/Emily is an energetic and optimistic girl who loves fairy tale books. Despite being abit of a klutz, she is rather strong-willed, believing that if she works hard then she too can get a "Happy Ending".


  • Animals Hate Her: During her bad luck streak on the Kyoto trip.
  • Area of Effect: During one point while she was approaching Nico, Happy finds herself surrounded by black vines attacking her and emits a powerful light around herself to destroy them all.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In Episode 6 she gets distracted by a book with a penguin on the cover...while going through a portal that goes to the destination the traveler is thinking of. She gets stuck at the South Pole!
  • Badass Adorable: Miyuki really loves her family and friends, willing to go to great lengths to protect them and all the kindness and smiles they have given her into the point it given her the edge in beating a rather savage Wolfrun in Episode 44. Also, you do not want to mess with this girl's fairy tales. Especially Cinderella.
  • Battle Aura: Cure Happy tends to emit a massive light aura whenever she powers herself up, usually when she performs her signature chant.
  • Beam-O-War: Had this with an Akanbe on Episode 21 and Bad End Happy.
  • Beam Spam: In the episode 47, she as Ultra Cure Happy does this against Pierrot. She also fired a barrage of pink laser beams in HUGtto! PreCure ♥ Futari wa PreCure: Pretty Cure All Stars Memories.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She's prone to comedic and goofy moments thanks to her awkardwardness. She also wields the most potent set of powers among her entire team.
  • Book Dumb: While not completely as she is capable of doing her homework and good at reading, she's clearly not the one of the best students in her school. She pretty much struggles in quite a number of subjects and once scored a 30 in a math test.
  • Bookworm: She enjoys fairy tale books and reads A LOT of them.
  • Butt-Monkey: She gets hit in the face by random flying objects a lot. Also, on the Kyoto trip, Miyuki draws a Terrible Luck fortune, whereupon everything that can go wrong to her does: bird poop on her head, getting cut off in a group picture, then each picture after that is out of focus or worse, falling into a lake, getting smacked in the head by falling dolls, ice cream in the face due to some kids bumping her while trying to eat it, and it only gets worse when they transform.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: The girl has a poor time keeping her secret identity a secret.
  • Character Catchphrase:
    • "Ultra happy!"
    • Also, "Happuppu~" whenever something doesn't please her.
    • Possibly her telling others not to reveal her Secret Identity.
  • Character Development: Although she initially started off as a coward who would rather run from a fight and had a difficult time adjusting to her new powers, Miyuki eventually develops into a brave, strong, and more rounded leader with a better understanding of facing hardships and sorrow. She also became more confident in her abilities over time, to the point where she was the first Cure to use her special attack more than once without being tired from using it.
  • Cheery Pink: She has pink eyes, pink hair, and pink clothes, and they are all found in her as a normal girl and Pretty Cure. As her Meaningful Name in both of her egos implies, she's as cheerful as can be.
  • Comedic Shotacon: See Perverse Sexual Lust below. She has a crush on Peter Pan, who is functionally a thousand year old shota. Downplayed though, as it does not define her character.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She's incredibly clumsy and her face is a big red target for objects to smack into and yet, she's the same girl who is willing to jump into Joker's Ball of Neglect to save her team and capable of unleashing large and incredibly strong beams, destructive lasers, and holy light-based attacks. Let's not forget that she can also transform into a powerful planet-sized goddess in Episode 45 and 48 right off the bat.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: As adorable as she is, she gets lots of injuries and bodily harm due to her clumsiness.
  • Death from Above: She may be left out in sharing a Combination Attack with her teammates on Episode 47 but she's more than capable of bringing in the hurt on her own by raining down pink beams with Happy Shower Shining.
  • Determinator: Miyuki have proven to be the most determined among all the Smile Cures. Apart from her never-giving-up and uplifting attitude when the team is feeling down, she's the only one who isn't affected by the Bad End Space on her transformation debut episode and refused to go down fighting a yellow-nosed Akanbe that proved to be much stronger than the one she defeated in Episode 23. Said determination was even able to awaken the Cures from the effects of Joker's Ball of Neglect. It's pretty much how she was able to lead the Cures into battle as well.
  • Disney Death: In the movie, Cure Happy was presumably killed by the Demon King when she made an Heroic Sacrifice to save Nico, who was supposed to be killed by the latter for betraying him for the former. However, she was brought to life as Ultra Cure Happy.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Quite literally in the case of the final battle.
  • Flash Step: She pulled this off in the movie when she was rescuing Nico from one of the ogres.
  • For Happiness: Even her Stellar Name refers to this.
  • Foreshadowing: From her instances of stage frights, to her lack of confidence in her Mother's Day gift, to expressing how lonely it feels in keeping your feelings to yourself when Akane didn't say goodbye to the transfer student and among others. There are several instances that indicates Miyuki isn't always the opstimitic girl she acts as it's later reveal that she was a shy and insecure when she's younger.
  • Friendless Background: Prior to who she is now, she couldn't make any friend due to her shyness.
  • Genki Girl: She is quite the happy young girl and is very energetic despite everything that happens.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Her pigtails are normally what could be considered as drill twintails, but are done in a way that they resemble chocolate cornets more than anything. The resemblance is lampshaded in episode 14 by a recurring character for the episode holding a pair of chocolate cornets to her head to describe Miyuki's hair. As Cure Happy, though, they resemble more standard-looking twintails.
  • Gratuitous English: Unlike Love who was constantly talking about "shiawase", Miyuki always refers to happiness with the English word "happy", which also happens to be her Cure name.
  • Grind Boots: In Episode 15, Cure Happy was able to defeat the plant-like Akanbe by grinding across its vines to approach close enough to land the finishing blow, completely catching it and Wolfrun off guard by the stunt.
  • Hair Antennae: Two strands of her hair tend to stick up and away.
  • Hand Blast: Cure Happy is shown to be capable of firing lasers of light from out of her hands. Certain artwork and animations show her being able to do this with her fingers as well.
  • Heart Beat-Down: Secondary to Light 'em Up, but still a factor in her attacks, such as the heart shape she makes with her hands during Happy Shower and the giant "hugs" she's given a few of the bad guys to defeat them.
  • Hidden Depths: It turns out the reason Miyuki loves to read fairy tales is because they were her solace during her early childhood when she was a shy and timid girl who doesn't have any friends and gets frightened from just merely speaking. Her concerned grandmother would often tell her many stories. She eventually became a cheerful and optimistic child with a bright smile learning more about happiness after connecting with an girl in the forest, who is possibly an envision of herself and based off a character who loves to make everyone happy wherever she goes from the torn book she read.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Let's just say you don't want to be on the receiving end of her holy light-based attacks. Especially her Cinderella Happy Shower and Happy Shower Shining.
  • In a Single Bound: Cure Happy's secondary ability. She can make powerful leaps and jumps way higher than the other Cures.
  • The Ingenue: Miyuki's love for fairy tales and wish to make others happy gave her an innocence and purity that not many Pink Pretty Cures can match. This is further played in the season's movie where she transforms into Ultra Cure Happy, being notably much more mature, calm, and quiet. In New Stage 2, she isn't angry at what Enen has done at all and just smiles while winking at the fairy to encourage him before being completely frozen.
  • Ironic Name: To a high degree. Despite her Dub Name Change being Glitter Lucky, she's anything but in Episode 13.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: "PRETTY CURE HAPPY SHOWER!" She gathers the energy into her hands after making a heart-shaped sign and launches it at enemies.
    • "PRETTY CURE CINDERELLA HAPPY SHOWER" and "PRETTY CURE HAPPY SHOWER SHINING"
    • In her Ultra form, she can fire gigantic beams with one hand.
  • Large Ham: She does an incredible amount of shouting, even when not transformed.
  • Late for School: She meets Candy while she's running late for school.
  • The Leader: She is the headstrong and charismatic leader of the team.
  • Light 'em Up: Her elemental power is Holy Light.
  • Light Is Good: As mentioned before, Cure Happy's power is centered around Holy Light and many of her abilities with are associated with sparkles. Meanwhile, Miyuki is a total sweetheart with a bright smile and innocence to match.
  • Luminescent Blush: Miyuki breaks into the "full face red" version after being asked if she liked anyone during the Kyoto trip.
  • Meaningful Name: A Prophetic Name as well. Her full name means "Beautiful happiness under the starry sky".
  • New Transfer Student: She is this at the start of the series and has to introduce herself when she arrives at the school for the first time.
  • No Indoor Voice: During several climaxes in battles.
  • Odd Name Out: Miyuki is the only one among her group of friends who isn't named after her signature color.
  • Otaku: Miyuki is a Fairy Tale Otaku and even confesses that the guy she likes is Peter Pan...
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: For Peter Pan, as revealed in Episode 13.
  • Pink Heroine: She's the lead Cure and her theme color is pink.
  • Plucky Girl: "If we do our best, happy times will surely come!" This is against a particularly terrifying wolf-man who is a Nietzsche Wannabe.
  • Pom-Pom Girl: In the English Dub, her attack is changed into an actual cheer.
  • Power Palms: Done during the final battle towards the army of multiple Akanbe she fought. Happy channels the light energy through one of the palms of her hands before she blasts them away with a thrust.
  • Recoil Boost: While searching for Candy in the Bad End Kingdom, Happy jumps offs from a cliff with a lava pit below. She manages to save herself by using her Happy Shower to propel herself.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair and her personality is extremely cheerful and optimistic most of the time with an innocent nature to match.
  • Screaming Warrior: "KIAI DA! KIAI DA! KIAI DA!"
    • Just watch her battle against Pierrot in Episode 47. You'd better not be wearing headphones or you might go deaf.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Her grandmother, Tae, shares alot of her traits in that she's rather hopeful and has a strong heart. Both were able to be unaffected by Wolfrun's Bad End Space as well.
  • Shrinking Violet: Believe it or not, she was very shy when she was a little kid. She was too afraid to communicate with anyone.
  • Shy Finger-Twiddling: In Episode 13, she does this when she is grilled on if she likes a certain guy.
  • Slapstick: If something is about to go out of control, there is a better than 70% chance it's going to hit Miyuki in the face.
  • Stage Fright: Miyuki has been shown to be nervous and afraid in standing infront of a crowd multiple times, from her classroom introduction to the school festival, possibly alluding to how she's was once too afraid to interact with other people.
  • Stellar Name: Her surname, Hoshizora, translate to "the starry sky". This doubles as a Prophetic Name.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: She and the other Cures are this towards the Bad End Generals on Episode 45 after hearing their backstories into the point they refuse to fight back. Before the Bad End Generals even attack them again, her Angelic Transformation kicks in and helps the Bad End General while thanking them for fulfilling their roles in the stories they are from. The fact she also loves the villains in the stories makes her an All-Loving Hero as well.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: One of Majorina's inventions accidently turned the poor girl into a super giant fighting robot that must be piloted manually to work. Naturally, Peace is thrilled by the predicament, but Sunny and March are unamused.
  • Use Your Head: Ever since Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage, it became one of Cure Happy's signature physical moves, alongside her double axe handle. She uses it again in Episode 32 on a yellow-nosed Akanbe in a more serious matter which appears to be briefly effective going by the Akanbe's reaction and it was hilariously done in New Stage 3 with Cure Rouge calling it Happy Head Attack. She even uses this move in Episode 37 on HuGtto! Pretty Cure alongside with Cure Blossom's signature Butt Punch.
  • Wall Jump: Done in the second episode. After leaping away from an Akanbe's attack, Happy rebounds off a building's wall before delivering a flying kick in a Kamen Rider-like fashion.
  • Worf Barrage: In Episode 47, she fires an energy barrage ála Vegeta. Like him, it doesn't work against Pierrot. After the dust is gone, Pierrot's planet-sized face is seen in the sky.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: In Episode 1, to combat Wolfrun, Cure Happy hides behind a brick wall, citing The Three Little Pigs and how the Big Bad Wolf was defeated by the brick house. She doesn't realize that Wolfrun can just make a Monster of the Week from the aforementioned brick wall.

"Sparkling, glittering, rock-paper-scissors! Cure Peace! / Puppies and Kittens! The power of love! I'm Glitter Peace!"

A timid, clumsy girl who is quick to tears, yet also very loyal and diligent. She is a closet anime/gaming/tokusatsu nerd and dreams of becoming a manga artist but hides this out of fear of being teased.


  • Ascended Fangirl: In the timeskip, Yayoi goes from a clumsy crybaby otaku to the creator of successful manga series Miracle Peace.
  • Author Avatar: In-universe, her manga character Miracle Peace is obviously herself, just being courage and matured, older and having different hairstyles and a deeper voice.
  • Badass Adorable: Despite being called a crybaby, Cure Peace had some surprisingly cool moments such as defeating an Akanbe without getting shocked from her Peace Thunder on Episode 19.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: She's a nice and timid girl for the most part, but when push comes to shove, she can really lay down the thunder.
  • Character Development: Was introduced as a shy and introverted crybaby. Becomes more open with her emotions and more resilient as the show goes on.

  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blonde hair and her heart is as soft as cotton.
  • Her Codename Was Mary Sue: Played for Drama. Miracle Peace represents Yayoi's deepest desires and the kind of person she wants to develop into.
  • Insult Backfire: When Bad End Cure Peace calls her out on her idealism, Cure Peace just rolls with it and fully and calmly accepts that facet of her personality.
  • Kiddy Coveralls: Yayoi Kise/Cure Peace is the Token Mini-Moe and a Shrinking Violet to the team who's a big fan of various anime and otaku media, often treated like one of the youngest members. Her default clothing when not in school is a yellow overall-dress to go with her childish personality.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: Cure Peace have utilized her lightning in a creative number of ways such as covering herself in electricity to deliver a powerful elbow-checking attack or using Peace Thunder to electrify the bowling ball to electrocute the reinforced bowling pins.

  • Nightmare Fetishist: Absolutely adores ghost stories.
  • Prone to Tears: Good lord. As mentioned, she is known for her cry-baby tendencies.
  • Rock–Paper–Scissors: Part of her catchphrase. She throws out a different move every episode.
    • Taken to a new level in Episode 38, where she throws out a new "RockPaperScissors" move, a combination of all three. Good timing, too, as both Akaoni and Wolfrun played along with scissors and rock, respectively.
  • Shock and Awe: Her elemental power is thunder and lightning.
  • Shrinking Violet: Combined with Prone to Tears, since she is known for her crybaby tendencies from the moment she's introduced. Following her Character Development, she grows out of this.

  • Token Mini-Moe: She's the shortest and youngest looking of her Cure team.

  • V-Sign: Her preferred hand gesture in Cure form, especially during attacks.
  • Write Who You Know: In-Universe example. She draws a manga named Miracle Peace. The titular character is the ideal version of herself, and the villain is a Bishōnen Line version of Akaoni.

An intelligent and cool girl who acts as the class representative, and the vice-president of the Student Council. In typical Ojou fashion, she comes from a wealthy, traditionalist family. However, she also has a frightening temper if pushed.


  • Aloof Archer: She's often seen as the "brains" among the Cures and is usually calm, analytical, and collected. She also excels in archery when she practices Aikido.
  • Anime Hair: Gains wild spiky hair in addition to her long, trimmed original style during Princess Mode. A fairly bold contrast with her Yamato Nadeshiko traits.
  • Badass Boast: In Episode 5.
    Reika: I am the vice-president of Nanairogaoka Middle School, Reika Aoki. As vice-president, I cannot overlook your destruction of school property. No.. I, as Reika Aoki, will not forgive you!
  • Blade Run: Used this trick during her fight with Momotaro in the movie before proceeding to freeze the blade.
  • Blue Means Cold: Cure Beauty has blue hair and a blue outfit. She also possses the power to control ice, which she can use to create weapons with.
  • Blue Means Smart One: Her signature color is blue. She's the Vice President of the school council and the Team Mom of the group who is more levelheaded and wise than her teammates, which often reflects in her refined speech.
  • Breath Weapon: The opening has showcased Beauty creating ice with her breath.
  • Cannot Keep a Secret: Almost gives out the fact that she's a Pretty Cure away TWICE in the same episode.
  • Caring Gardener: She waters the flowers of the school's garden every morning.
  • Character Catchphrase: "The path of X is a tough one..."
  • Character Development: Reika's lack of self-agency is a recurring theme in the series. Deciding not to go on the trip to London even though her family and teachers really want her to is a major breakthrough for her.
  • Childhood Friends: A brief flashback in episode 42 reveals that this is the relationship between her and Nao.
  • The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes: There is very little Reika can't do when in the service of others, be it for the Student Council, her classmates, or the other Cures. Ask her to decide something for herself? That's where she has the most trouble.
  • The Comically Serious: The overall composed Reika has her share of comedy.
  • Combination Attack: In Episode 47, she and Peace developed a new attack called Thunder Blizzard by combining their powers.
  • Cool Sword: The opening at one point shows her wielding one made of ice, which finally makes an appearance in the series proper in Episode 23.
  • Cross-Cast Role: She's cast as Prince Charming for a reenactment of "Cinderella" in episode 39.
  • Ditzy Genius: She's the standard blue Cure; Lady of War and The Smart Guy of the team, but she lacks common sense for simpler things like how manzai works and what sarcasm is. In the movie, when Kinkaku and Ginkaku burst through the screen to chase after Nico, she comments the 3D has gone amazing instead of the others' more panicked reaction of having their movie's bad guys become real.
  • Dual Wielding: Gains this ability in Episode 43.
  • Elemental Weapon: She can create swords and a bow with her cryokinetic abilities.
  • Extreme Doormat: She has zero sense of self-agency. Her life is built around living up to other people's standards - which, in her power-up episode, is what Joker uses to push her to the edge. When asked what she specifically wants, she can't get a word out.
  • Field of Blades: As shown in her solo fight with Joker, Cure Beauty is capable of turning the whole area into a field of ice in which she can pick any ice to become her sword, if one breaks, she just picks another, akin to the Unlimited Blade Works
  • Formal Characters Use Keigo: Being an Ojou, Reika always speaks very politely.
  • Hime Cut: As befits a traditional Ojou with Yamato Nadeshiko traits, Reika has blunt bangs, cheek length sidelocks, and long hair.
  • An Ice Person: Her powers and techniques are all ice-based.
  • Instant Expert: She is shown to be the quickest to master her powers, as well as other situations, such as being the only one who can pilot Robo Happy because she had practically memorized the book on robots Yayoi had given her earlier.
  • Kill It with Ice: She did this to a horde of monsters on during the final battle, by firing several shots of her Beauty Blizzard Arrow and her Combination Attack with Peace.
  • Mage Marksman: She gains an upgraded attack called "Beauty Blizzard Arrow"; she turns her two ice swords into an ice bow and creates an ice arrow.
  • Master Swordswoman: Or Swordswoman in her case. She's shown to be very efficient with her blades, even in Dual Wielding.
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: She can form a bow by melding her swords.
  • Ms. Exposition: Reika during the school trip has encyclopedic info on everywhere they visit. "You're like a walking guidebook."
  • No Sense of Humor: Reika just doesn't get jokes, not even the meaning of the word. In Episode 17, we see she has absolutely no idea what jokes are or how they work, probably due to her upbringing.
  • Not So Above It All: Her mature and levelheaded behavior occasionally slips. During the Kyoto Trip, she tries to stop the Cures from having a pillow fight because it's 'unladylike'... until a pillow lands in her face, at which she joins in anyway.
  • Ojou: She comes from a wealthy, traditionalist family.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Also overlaps with Not Even Bothering with the Accent at times in the Latin American Spanish. While most of the characters slips into their voice actors' native accents at times. Reika is maybe the most egregious example of this, as she speaks sometimes with a very notable Colombian accent in her voice.note 
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: In episode 43, Reika lost her powers as Cure Beauty during a fight with Joker because the latter used the former's conflict between quitting being a Cure and disappointing her friends by not studying abroad to drive her into a breakdown.
  • Running Gag: Minor one: Tends to take the Precures to ridiculous places (e.g. Mt. Fuji for their headquarters), insisting that this is the 'Path' they should walk... only to be called out on how it has nothing to do with their overall activity, and have her notice with "Oh? Is that so...?" and eventually cancel her plan.
  • Shonen Hair: She has hair that goes all spiky in Princess Form.
  • Sizable Snowflakes: She creates a snowflake when performing her Beauty Blizzard. She also creates some pretty large snowflakes that she uses as shield during her solo fight with Joker.
  • The Smart Girl: She's calm and smart when compared to the klutzier and less-academically gifted Precures. She's also a walking guidebook.
  • Student Council President: She's elected president in Episode 37.
  • Team Mom: She's usually the one to take notice of the team's welfare and development.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She's a refined Ojou, making her the girly girl to her tomboyish childhood friend Nao.
  • True Beauty Is on the Inside: Insists on this when faced against her Bad End Precure, who's claiming that the world is only for the beautiful (on the outside). This combines with a Meaningful Name or Prophetic Name for her Cure name, Cure Beauty.
  • True Blue Femininity: Her theme color is blue and she's a ladylike, polite Ojou.
  • Winter Royal Lady: She comes from an upperclass family and she has ice powers as a Pretty Cure.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Reika is a traditionalist Nice Girl with a Hime Cut and a frightening temper. Lampshaded by Akane at the start of the Summer Festival in Episode 26.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Said against Joker in order to allow Cure Happy/ Glitter Lucky to reach Candy. If these words are an indication:
    You can't scare me with your bad puns. I am not moving! And you are not getting past me!

Candy's older brother. Inexplicably a ninja/samurai.
  • Character Catchphrase:
    • "I am a man. Calling me cute is most rude!" Always accompanied by Stock Footage of him in samurai garb, standing on a rock as waves crash against it.

  • Hot in Human Form: His human form looks so good that Miyuki and Yayoi apparently fall for him.

  • Little Bit Beastly: In Episode 33, his human form gets to keep the ears and tail of his true form.
  • Not So Above It All: As stoic and serious as he is, Pop has shown himself to engage on some slight mischief. One example was when he took the cassette from a camera that would have otherwise shown the Cures in their transformed state. He offers to delete to Precure footage...and turns it into a movie solely about him, much to Akane's and Nao's chagrin.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Pop has blue heart-shaped markings near his eyes while his sister Candy wears pink accessories.
  • Verbal Tic: He ends his sentences with "~de gozaru."

Their current goal is to collect enough Bad Energy to revive their leader, the King of Evil "Pierrot", who has enough power to cause a worldwide disaster called "Worst Ending".

    Pierrot 

Pierrot

Voiced by: Tesshō Genda (Japanese), John Eric Bentley (English) Foreign VAs

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

The Big Bad of this series, and the ultimate enemy of Märchenland and the current Precure.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In his original released form. In Episode 47's ending, he becomes as big as BLACK HOLE!
  • Big Bad: He is ultimately the driving force behind the series' events, and there is neither a Greater-Scope Villain nor a Man Behind the Man driving him.
  • Bishounen Line: His form in Ep. 47 is this compared to his appearance in Ep. 23, where he was significantly weaker and less humanoid in appearance.
  • Breath Weapon: His Bad End energy cannon, which Pop claims can destroy the entire Earth, is fired from his mouth.
  • Dark Is Evil: He is dominantly colored dark purple and he brings darkness wherever he goes.
  • Dub Name Change: To "Emperor Nogo".
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: He's the least developed Big Bad in the entire franchise, suffering from little screentime he gets. He appears only for three episodes, but he's just shown to be plain evil and just powerful without notable motivations or personality traits like the others.
  • Hope Crusher: He tries to bring the Precures despair, but he always fails in the end.
  • Humanoid Abomination: His Ep. 47 appearance, in contrast to his Episode 23 appearance.
  • Monster Clown: His first form resembles a clown. His second form resembles a harlequin.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He wants to destroy every world to bring despair.
  • One-Winged Angel: His ultimate form is a face that is as big as the villain Black Hole, making him the biggest villain of all series.
  • Slasher Smile: His default expression.

    Joker 

Joker

Voiced by: Yūji Mitsuya (Japanese), Keith Silverstein (English) Foreign VAs

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/joker3.png

An agent modeled after a Villainous Harlequin. Although he is treated as an annoyance by Wolfrun, Akaoni and Majorina, he provides them with additional powers and seems to be working on his own secret agenda.

No relation to the Clown Prince of Crime.


  • Back from the Dead: It turns out that Joker was not defeated entirely in Smile's Grand Finale. He is, in fact, alive and well in the novel after he inherits immortality from his merging with Pierrot and makes a grand entrance again in front of the adult Smile team.
  • Bad Boss: Terrifies, manipulates and belittles his underlings liberally.
  • Big Bad: Serving as the main antagonist of the sequel novel.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: No eyes are visible through the eyeholes of his mask, just two black voids, like windows into nowhere.
  • Break Them by Talking: One of his favorite techniques. He is really good at playing mind games and making every single person he interacts with fall into despair when fighting him. When he goes mano y mano against Cure Beauty in episode 43, his method of fighting is to break her down by talking until she simply can't bring herself to fight him anymore. He is even capable of terrifying his own underlings.
  • Commuting on a Bus: He ocasassionally leaves the commanders to their own devices while searching for the Miracle Jewel's wherabouts, notably from Episode 25 to Episode 30.
  • Cool Sword: Using a cutlass as his personal weapon, usually using it while fighting Cure Beauty.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He singlehandedly defeated the Cures, and topped it off with a soul-crushing speech. He does this again in the novel, where he easily defeats the adult Cures and Candy after his surprise attack inside the Mysterious Library as a black ink.
  • Die Laughing: Does so as he dissolves into Bad End ink to be merged with Pierrot at the near end of Episode 46.
  • The Dragon: He is second in command to Pierrot.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: With Pierrot being dead for most of the show, Joker is the one calling the shots, acting as the de facto leader of Bad End Kingdom.
    • Dragon Their Feet: Played straight in the novel where he outlives Pierrot as he's still alive. See the Dragon Ascendant.
    • Dragon Ascendant: After Pierrot's death and his defeat in his anime, Joker resurfaces back once again, where this time he is the Big Bad of the novel.
  • Dub Name Change: He's called "Rascal" in Glitter Force.
  • Evil Laugh: Most notably in Episode 21. It's quite maniacal, too.
  • Fangs Are Evil: They're more prominent when he gets angry or is being particularly diabolical.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He speaks politely and jovially, but he actively delights in the pain he's inflicting and the despair caused by Bad Ends.
  • For the Evulz: Almost as bad as the other Joker. He won't settle for merely destroying the world, he has to make sure he grinds out every last chance of happiness, hope, and goodness off the face of the planet first, for no real reason other than the fact it's possible.
  • Gratuitous English: Is quite fond of this. Yes! Wonderful!
  • Hijacked by Ganon: In the novel, it turns out that not only he's still alive and at large after his defeat in the anime, but he suddenly makes a big return when he attacks inside the Mysterious Library, planning to contaminate Miyuki's picture book The Greatest Smile with his black ink to drive the world to a Bad End yet again. And he's the Big Bad this time...
  • Hope Crusher: He's seriously delighted when people fall into despair, destroying anything that gives them hope like the Miracle Jewel.
  • Just Toying with Them: He intentionally holds back his true strength and drags on his battles with the Cures to satisfy his sadistic urges, such as verbally destroying their morale amidst combat or keeping them alive to torture them with their many failures, all the while enjoying every single minute of their suffering.
  • Killed Off for Real: The adult Cures and Candy finally defeated him once and for all after they transform to their Eternal Cure forms, ultimately disintegrating him and purifying him for good.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His appearance in an episode usually means something seriously evil is about to occur.
  • Large Ham: He's a vibrant guy who tends to break out into acrobatic non-sequiturs and he steps up his dramatic tendencies and bold, hope-annihilating announcements or actions when battling the Cures, savouring every single minute of their suffering like a six-course Chinese meal.
  • Lecherous Licking: He does this to Cure Beauty's hair in the middle of their sword fight in episode 23. He also often licking his lips.
  • Magical Clown: He’s a Villainous Harlequin and Monster Clown with a lot of magical techniques. This includes stuff involving cards, teleportation, creating Monsters of the Week, absorbing Monsters of the Week to empower himself, creating pocket dimensions and Lotus Eater Machines, and many more.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: Assuming it is a mask. The top half of his face might simply be bone white.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He took advantage of the anger and resentment Wolfrun, Majorina, and Akaoni felt to turn them to Pierrot's side.
  • Post-Final Boss: Serving as the Big Bad of the epilogue novel, having become a Superior Successor to Pierrot.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In Episode 40, he sported huge glowing red eyes. Since then, he's shown to have them whenever he was particularly angry.
  • Sadist: He clearly enjoys making the characters suffer and driving them into Heroic BSODs.
  • Slasher Smile: He's prone to smiling widely with all his teeth showing when he's feeling particularly psychopathically gleeful, like when he has the Cures in a corner.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: Joker's love of toying with and psychologically tormenting friend and foe alike, along with a complete and utter lack of sympathetic qualities, make him possibly one of the most evil villains in Pretty Cure history. Eerily fitting that the show was supposed to be simple, Joker requires no depth to digest fully. No moral ambiguity, no sympathy. Just "He's totes evil."
  • Villainous Breakdown: Subverted. He first seems not to take his Psycho Rangers' defeat well...before suddenly laughing as they served their purpose in keeping the Cures from preventing Pierrot's ressurection.
  • Villainous Harlequin: He looks like a jester, and he is, going by the other villainous tropes in his entry, an obvious villain.
  • The Worf Effect: Post-Smile, he lost his original body after his merging from Pierrot. Though when he encounters the Cures again after 10 years, thanks to inheriting a massive power boost from his merging with his former master, he easily overpowers them and Candy inside the Mysterious Library without catching a breath.

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

The five Bad End Pretty Cures are Evil Knockoffs of the real five Smile Pretty Cures, created by Joker with a Cure Decor and the Bad Energy of Wolfrun, Akaoni and Majorina. The members are Bad End Happy, Bad End Sunny, Bad End Peace, Bad End March and Bad End Beauty.


  • Anime Hair: All of them. Their hairstyles are really difficult to duplicate and maintain in real life.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Girl: All of them are this, particularly Bad End March, who is also The Social Darwinist. While they are, on average, stronger than their counterparts, the Bad End Precures lack the life experiences that ultimately make the Smile Precures strong and are Killed Off for Real because of it.
  • Artificial Human: They were created by Joker from Bad Energy and the last Cure Decor. He freely admits to them being fake, and they don't seem to care either way since they view themselves as better than their counterparts.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Bad End Beauty believes the weaklings are ugly and beauty is the most important thing.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Bad End Peace, who pretends to be hurt and offer sympathies after she lands on top of Cure Peace.
  • Blood Knight: Bad End March, who firmly believes that the strong will attack the weak.
  • Calling Your Attack: "Bad End Shower", "Bad End Fire", "Bad End Thunder", "Bad End Shoot" and "Bad End Blizzard".
  • Combat Stilettos: Like their counterparts, the Bad End Precures wear high heels as part of their outfits and Bad End March was seen repeatedly kicking Cure March heels first.
  • Curtains Match the Window: All of their eyes match the colors of their hair.
  • Dark Is Evil: Their outfits are dark, their powers are dark in nature despite Elemental Powers, and they were created using Bad Energy. They are very much evil in overall disposition.
  • Dub Name Change: They're called the Glitter Shadow Force in Glitter Force.
  • Elemental Powers: They share these with their counterparts, right down to having purple-colored versions of their attacks.
  • Empty Eyes: Their eyes lack pupils where everyone else has them.
  • Evil Feels Good: Bad End Happy. Seeing others in pain makes her delighted.
  • Evil Knockoff: All were created by Joker to be copies of the Smile Precures. He even admits to them being fake.
  • Evil Red Head: Bad End Sunny, being Cure/Glitter Sunny's Evil Knockoff.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Downplayed. All of them have darker voices than their counterparts, except Bad End Cure Peace maybe.
    • Bad End Cure March's voice isn't much deeper than Cure March's, but it's deep enough to fit this trope closely enough.
  • Flat Character: They just have one personality aspect each.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Their outfits are incredibly tight on their bodies to the point of looking like they were painted on. Only their sleeves and skirts are loose.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: They have narrow eyes compared to their good counterparts.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Bad End Sunny briefly gains these when she uses her Bad End Fire attack.
  • Hannibal Lecture: All of them give these to their respective counterparts. They all get silenced when the Cures deliver their Kirk Summations and take them down.
  • Hate Sink: Oppose to the past evil Cures that showed even abit of remorse in their defeats, the Bad End Cures are down evil to the very end, wishing nothing more than destruction.
  • It's All About Me: Bad End Cure Happy, who views her own happiness as being what's the most important.
  • Jerkass: All of them mock, insult, and belittle their counterparts in varying ways For the Evulz. Bad End Peace goes a bit further by actually Trolling Cure Peace.
  • Kick Chick: Bad End Cure March, who assaults Cure March with a flurry of kicks while delivering her Hannibal Lecture.
  • Kill It with Fire: Bad End Sunny wants to burn everything in the world.
  • Killed Off for Real: Each Bad End Precure is defeated by their respective counterpart when said counterpart uses a more powerful version of their original finisher to counteract their own. As soon as Bad End Happy bit the dust, all of them reverted to being Joker's cards before finally and collectively turning back into the final Cure Decor. The odds of them ever returning in canon are all but nonexistent.
  • Lack of Empathy: Bad End Happy, who cares about herself only and does not care if anyone else is miserable.
  • Lady of War: Bad End March and Bad End Cure Beauty. The latter more closely fits this trope by being concerned with physical beauty.
  • Large Ham: When calling their attacks. Bad End Beauty calls her attack with a really odd tone.
  • Light Is Not Good: Bad End Happy's Elemental Powers is light despite her darker-colored attacks. She is every bit as evil as she looks.
  • Mirror Match: Joker uses his cards to throw each Cure and her respective Evil Knockoff into isolated dimensions where they will battle one-on-one.
  • Narcissist: Bad End Beauty, who considers everything weaker than she is to be ugly (namely, Cure Beauty).
  • Oh, Crap!: Bad End Peace is shocked when Cure Peace No Sells her attack and sends a stronger one right at her. Bad End Sunny is visibly panicking when Cure Sunny's own more powerful attack is about to hit her, face-first. Bad End Beauty has a look of disbelief in a blink and you'll miss it shot right before Cure Beauty's own attack.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Bad End Sunny, who wants to incinerate everything.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: All of them count, but Bad End Sunny loves destruction and desires to burn everything to death.
  • Power of the Sun: Bad End Sunny describes herself as the sun which burns everything to death.
  • The Psycho Rangers: Each one of them is an Evil Knockoff to the girls of the Smile Pretty Cure team.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Their attacks are purple and were able to overwhelm the Cures. This is somewhat subverted when they are ultimately pushed back by their counterparts' new and more powerful moves they obtained prior.
  • Ramming Always Works: Subverted. Bad End Sunny's Bad End Fire involves sheathing herself in purple flames and charging headfirst into her target. The subverted part comes from the fact that she charged face-first into Cure Sunny's "Pretty Cure Sunny Fire Burning" attack while trying to get to Cure Sunny.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: They combine this with Hannibal Lecture.
    • In the middle of their battle, Bad End Happy was belittling Happy, glamouring on how wretched and hopeless she looks.
    • Bad End Peace tells her counterpart that world peace is impossible and that it is something that only a "little princess would spew".
    • Bad End Beauty claims the sight of Cure Beauty in bad shape to be "ugly" and follows it up with her not deserving to be called "Beauty".
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Subverted. Bad End Happy may have pink hair (albeit a darker tone), she is anything but sweet.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Bad End Peace uses this against Cure Peace, saying that world peace is impossible and that making world peace a goal is just something a little princess would do.
  • Sixth Ranger: They are the latest Bad End Kingdom villains.
  • Sphere of Destruction: Bad End March's Bad End Shoot has her kicking an enormous energy ball at her counterpart.
  • The Social Darwinist: Bad End March. She believes the strong should attack and eliminate the weak.
  • The Sociopath: Bad End Happy, who admits that seeing others suffer gives her pleasure. Cure Happy calls her out on it, claiming such pleasure is not true happiness.
  • The Stoic: Bad End March, just like Cure Beauty. She doesn't even bat an eye even when her counterpart sends her own attack right back at her.
  • Super-Speed: Bad End March. She can move just as fast, if not faster than Cure March.
  • Super-Strength: Possibly, but ultimately averted. Bad End Sunny doesn't show this, but as Cure Sunny's copy, she might have had it.
  • Theme Naming: Just add "Bad End" to their Cure names. For the attacks, just replace the Cure names with "Bad End".
  • Troll: Bad End Peace demonstrates this after faking remorse for landing on top of Cure Peace. She apologizes profusely for landing on top of Cure Peace only to zap her when the latter assures the former that she's alright.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: They appear at the end of Episode 45 and are killed in Episode 46 without getting any sort of Character Development.

Movie Characters

    Nico 

Nico

Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nicochan_6.png
A girl living in Miyuki's picture book who bears a grudge against her for not completing her story.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At the beginning, she uses a Wounded Gazelle Gambit to gain the Cures' trust before putting them in the mismatched fairytale stories. Subverted after her Heel–Face Turn.
  • Broken Bird: The combination of her imprisonment, a broken promise, and her growing hatred and loneliness have left her utterly jaded to her previous Wide-Eyed Idealist self.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She has considerable magical power, but her troubled past and a broken promise has left her a messed-up shell of her old self.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her attire gives the impression of a goth girl due to the sheer number of dark colors. She remains a good person at heart.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: She encountered Miyuki when she was just in kindergarten courtesy of her book. Miyuki promised to complete the story, but her lackluster attempts eventually made her give up and she soon forgot about Nico. Nico is heartbroken and uses this event as a means of driving the movie's plot.
  • Girl in the Tower: Her storybook is ripped, thus ending her story at this point.
  • Meaningful Name: To quote Miyuki, "Like her name, Nico is a girl that's always smiling." "Nico" is the Japanese onomatopoeia for smiling.
  • Mystical White Hair: She has hair that is mostly white with a few hints of pink and purple. She can also self-insert people into fairy tales and mess them up with her power alone.
  • Reality Warper: Self-inserting the Cures into the fairytale stories is definitely not a normal occurrence or power of the Fairytale World.
  • Retcon: Her existence contradicts the season's episode 44, but it can be chalked up to Miyuki being an Unreliable Expositor. After all, Miyuki not remembering the exact story of her own childhood is the very reason why Nico turns evil.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Her sympathy for the Demon King even though he has imprisoned her for more than 10 years is because of she feels the same loneliness as he does. Her More than Mind Control and her request for Cure Happy to save him too are also because of the same reason.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She has white hair and is an antagonist in the movie, truly resenting Miyuki for breaking her promise. She grows out of it.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She is being chased by evil fairytale characters at the beginning of the movie before escaping into the real world. The Cures save her, but the fairytale characters were really possessed by the Demon King and Nico was just luring them into a trap.

    Demon King 

Demon King

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/demon_king_smile_precure.png
The Big Bad of the movie and the antagonist of Nico's story.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In his Dragon Phoenix-like form is about the size of his own castle.
  • Dark Is Evil: He is the Demon King and has a decidedly dark appearance. He is also the Big Bad of the movie.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: After being purified by Ultra Cure Happy, he comes to terms with his role but decides to be a good creature from now on..
  • Demonic Possession: Possesses the protagonists of the stories the Cures are self-inserting through their confusion of their messed up stories. He did this earlier in the movie when a pair of oni were trying to capture Nico; it was a plot by him and her to lure the Cures (especially Miyuki) into a trap.
  • Emotion Eater: Continually reminds Nico of her hatred toward Miyuki in order to feed off of it and grow stronger.
  • The Power of Hate: See Emotion Eater. The movie even says this trope almost word for word.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: His spawn; those black horned blobs that go "kage, kage". His true form is similar to them, only with added wings and tail.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: Ultra Cure Happy only touches his snout to purify him.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: It's implied that he takes his role as a villain to the point of Omnicidal Maniac is because the other characters in the Fairytale World think so.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: His primary attack is this, taking the form of a thick beam of darkness. It's powerful enough to overwhelm Royal Rainbow Burst.

Alternative Title(s): Glitter Force
