Star Twinkle Pretty Cures

    Hikaru Hoshina (Cure Star) 

Voiced by: Eimi Naruse
Click here to see her as a civilian 
A second-year middle school girl with a big imagination and a great love of space and constellations. She accidentally summons Fuwa when drawing in her notebook while stargazing one night. After meeting Lala and Prunce and vowing to protect Fuwa from the Notraiders, she becomes Cure Star.
  • Alliterative Name: Hikaru Hoshina.
  • Anti-Gravity Clothing: She has rings that float around the ends of her pigtails in her Cure form, making them look like small planets.
  • Barrier Warrior: Is the defensively inclined of her team, despite being the first Cure. She can summon Star Shields to block enemy attacks.
  • Blush Stickers: She tends to have these whenever she's excited.
  • Character Catchphrase: "Kirayaba~☆" jp  Certain subs translate it as "twincool," a portmanteau of twinkle and cool, which was later made officialinvoked in merchandise.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: When she uses Star Punch with one of her Princess Star Color Pens, the star she generates changes color to match the color of the Pen she's using; medium pink for Taurus, red for Aries, and light pink for Pisces.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In episode 29, when she met Kuku and Topper, Lala's acquaintances, she mistook each of the for Lala's older twin brother, while failing to notice her brother is named Lolo, and twins are the same age as the other (13-14, in Earth years at least), while Topper and Kuku are older than Lala and look too different from her to be her twins. Her teammates have to constantly hold back and correct her.
  • Cuteness Proximity:
    • She can't help but gush about how adorable Fuwa is when she first meets her.
    • The moment she sees a dog, or an alien that even looks slightly like a dog, she immediately tries to give them an enthusiastic pet.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: She drops in in the final episode of HuGtto! Pretty Cure, helping Cure Yell rescue Hugtan and reclaim a MacGuffin which now bears Hugtan's face.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: In the finale, she finally becomes an astronaut and is blasted into space. The series ends with Fuwa opening a portal that takes her rocket to where Lala and Yuni are so she can fulfill her promise of returning.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: During the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, she's shown to have cut her hair short and dyed a strand of it turquoise, much like Lala.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Wears only one stocking in her Cure uniform.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Her outgoing, impulsive nature makes her Choleric.
  • Generation Xerox: Hikaru's father passed down his interest for cryptids, space, and aliens along with his catchphrase onto her. In turn, she has her own adventures involving those very topics, albeit much more directly. She also earned her pink hair and love for drawing from her mother.
  • Genki Girl: As is the tradition for nearly every pink Cure in the franchise, she is a very excitable person who gets even more excited when talking about her interests.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She has pigtails in both her civilian form and as a Cure, fitting for a girly Pink Heroine.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: Has a pet dog herself and gushes at any dog or dog like alien she sees.
  • Hidden Depths: She may be a ditzy Genki Girl, but she's shown herself to be fairly insightful towards others. Elena and Madoka note how she seems to look out for her teammates when they get stressed.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Hikaru's desire to see the Southern Cross leads to the loss of two pens.
  • I Just Want to Be You: In episode 36, she decides she wants to be like Madoka so she can run for school president.
  • Idiot Hair: Self-evident, especially during her introduction scene.
  • In the Name of the Moon: “The star brightly twinkling above, Cure Star!”
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Ryou-san, the elderly caretaker of the planetarium.
  • Like Father, Like Son: She gets her love of aliens and even her catchphrase from her father.
  • Loose Lips: Notorious for this. She had a bad tendency of unintentionally giving away some information about Cures when speaking to others.
  • Mama Bear: She is fiercely protective of Fuwa. In the first episode alone she jumped into space without a spacesuit to save her and unlocked her Cure powers to protect her from the villains.
  • The McCoy: The one of the group most heavily influenced by her gut feelings and emotions, especially when compared to the more logical Lala.
  • Meaningful Name: "Hikaru" relates to light, and "Hoshi" means star.
  • Megaton Punch: Her signature attack, Star Punch, does this while launching a star-shaped burst of energy at her foe.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Becomes quite nervous and worried about the idea of becoming School President after Madoka suggests she should. Yuni notes that it's not like her to get so worried. She also becomes much more grim during episode 45 when she's unable to unlock her Twinkle Imagination like the other girls, and later on in episode 48 when it's revealed that Fuwa's sacrifice was unsuccessful, leading to the universe being swallowed in darkness.
  • Pink Heroine: In typical Pretty Cure fashion, she's the main character whose associated color (and hair) is pink.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red oni to Lala's blue oni. She's a lot more stubborn and impulsive compared to Lala.
  • Signature Move: Star Punch.
  • Significant Birth Date: April 12th, the International Day of Human Space Flight, which celebrates cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human to reach outer space.
  • Stellar Name: Her surname contains the kanji for "star".
  • Unabashed B-Movie Fan: When she brings a cheesy horror film to the sleepover.
  • The Xenophile: Her defining character trait. She is enthralled with meeting Prunce and Lala for the first time and even takes a moment to gush at how cool the villains look before realizing they want to abduct Fuwa. All throughout the story, it's safe to expect Hikaru to say "Twincool!" every time she meets a new alien species or disembarks onto a new planet.

    Lala Hagoromo (Cure Milky) 

Voiced by: Konomi Kohara
Click here to see her as a civilian 
"The milky way stretching across the heavens! Cure Milky!"
An alien from the planet Samaan who comes to Earth with Prunce and Fuwa to seek out the legendary Pretty Cure, and later becomes Cure Milky. She tries her best to be serious and logical, but is still prone to making mistakes and has difficulty adjusting to Earth and its people's customs.
  • Alien Among Us: As an alien on planet Earth, she needs to keep her status a secret. Made easier by the fact that she looks like a human teenager so she's able to blend in easily. By the end of the series, the people in her homeroom know she's an alien - mostly due to interference with Madoka's dad and Kappard. Thankfully, they keep that information a secret.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Played with, as she can't speak normal human language until Fuwa grants her the ability to do so in Episode 1, and even then Hikaru is the only one who can understand her until Episode 3. This only applies to the speaking part however, as she is functionally illiterate in Japanese until she teaches herself how to read. At the end of episode 48, she loses her ability to speak human language due to Fuwa's powers wearing off; during the Distant Finale, we hear her and other people of her planet speaking Japanese, but this is likely a Translation Convention.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Minor example, but episode 23 implies that Lala's species doesn't get the hiccups.
  • Book Dumb: Despite being The Spock, due to her species' over-reliance on AI, she's essentially this. She's genuinely shocked that Earthlings can do double digit calculations without needing an AI's assistance. She learns to outgrow this through the series, and by the end, she can at least read and do math on a seventh grade level.
  • But Now I Must Go: In the season finale, she announces she's returning back to Planet Saman and plans to share her adventures she shared with the Cures to the rest of her species.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally to Hikaru and Prunce.
  • Dumb Muscle: How she is seen by her race's culture. She is given the lowest rank due to being unable to work with society's AI, and due to her time spent on Earth, she has relatively more physical strength (as in, she can walk for extended periods of time without running out of breath). By the end, she becomes something of a Genius Bruiser due to Saman's overreliance on AI for knowledge, introducing the concept of "school" to her people.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Has stars in her pupils, as with the rest of her species.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: During the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, she's shown to have grown her hair out and styled it into twintails, much like Hikaru.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Wears one glove in her civilian clothing and, like Cure Star, one stocking as Cure Milky.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: She's the Lightning to Elena's Fire and Madoka's Ice.
  • Fish out of Water: She's an alien from a different planet now on Earth. This was especially apparent in Episode 2 when she could only understand Hikaru. Even after she learns how to understand human language, she outright tells Hikaru in Episode 3 that she can't understand what Earthlings are thinking.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: She's analytical to a fault, critical early on, and somewhat insecure, making her Melancholic.
  • Get Out!: Does this to Hikaru, Elena and Madoka the first time they entered the rocket without her permission. She eventually let them help her rebuild the rocket and announced it as "their" rocket now.
  • Giant Poofy Sleeves: Has a transparent version of these in her Cure form, as seen in her image above.
  • Half-Identical Twins: She and her twin brother Lolo look extremely similar.
  • Hidden Depths: Even though Lala is The Spock of the group due to her relative intelligence with the mechanics of space and her ship, she's given the lowest rank on her planet because she doesn't work with AI as well as the others, which troubles her deeply.
  • Hopeless with Tech: On Earth she's an inversion—she has trouble with low-tech things like manga and mops. Ironically, though, she seems to be a straight example relative to her own society, where she's no good with things like the commonplace hoverboards. This works to her advantage, however, when the residents are unable to run because of relying on their hoverboards; Lala is agile enough to run in and help her family.
  • Human Aliens: An extraterrestrial being from another planet, though unlike Prunce and Fuwa, Lala looks identical to a human girl aside from her pointed ears, eyes, and antennae (which are almost transparent in civilian form and could easily be mistaken for some sort of hair decoration).
  • Imported Alien Phlebotinum: An inversion, where a human concept is imported by aliens: Lala introduced the idea of school to Planet Saman as a way of learning, in place of relying on the AI.
  • In the Name of the Moon: “The Milky Way unfolding in the heavens, Cure Milky!”
  • In-Series Nickname: Earns the nicknames "Lala-lun" and "Lun-chan" when attending school, due to other students finding her speech pattern cute.
  • Loser Protagonist: Episode 29 shows how pathetic Lala's standing is on her home planet, with the Mother AI ranking her in the lowest possible echelon of her profession and assigning her the duty of what pretty much amounts to a garbage collector. She's also subordinate to her brother, who is awarded for finding one Pen, while she isn't allowed to tell people about her own achievements as a Pretty Cure.
  • Meaningful Rename: Since Saman is an Only One Name race, she's given the family name "Hagoromo" after she settles on Earth. The name derives from a Japanese folk tale where a heavenly maiden descends to Earth to reclaim her hagoromo (feathered robe) from a fisherman, which is also the role she's made to play in Abraham's movie featuring the girls.
  • New Transfer Student: Joins Hikaru's class from Episode 13 onwards.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Manages to retrieve the Star Pen from the Notraiders, only for herself to be accused of stealing it thanks to a misunderstanding. This causes her and the others to briefly become fugitives.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: She and Madoka have the same complications about their Cure identities and if they should tell their family about it. Unlike Madoka, however, Lala's family did find out about her being a Pretty Cure thanks to her and Yuni's help.
  • Odd Name Out: The only member of the team whose Cure name doesn't start with an S, until Cure Cosmo joins the team.
  • Only One Name: As with everyone else on Saman, she only has one name, and is only given a family name as part of her human identity on Earth.
  • Pointy Ears: She has pointy ears as a way to show that she's not human.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Downplayed compared to the other Cures, since her hair only grows slightly past her shoulders after transforming. It's played straighter in her Twinkle Style form, where her hair grows much longer.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue oni to Hikaru's red oni. She is much more calm and patient compared to Hikaru.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: When she uses Milky Shock with one of her Princess Star Color Pens, the electricity she fires changes shape to match the motif of the pen she's using; Lions for Leo, Twins for Gemini and Crab Claws for Cancer.
  • Shock and Awe: Her antennae are capable of giving off tiny electric shocks, which get amplified after she transforms, becoming her special move Milky Shock.
  • Signature Move: Milky Shock.
  • Significant Birth Date: July 7th, which is Tanabata.
  • The Spock: Putting aside the bluish color scheme and pointy ears, Lala is the logical thinker of the group to offset the more spontaneous and emotional Hikaru.
  • Terminally Dependent Society: Has her job decided by AI because of her personality and strengths like everyone else on planet Saman. However, she is not as dependent on AI's services like other members of her race.
  • Thememobile: A Pretty Cure first, she has the spaceship.
  • Verbal Tic: Once Fuwa gives her the ability to speak in human language, she tends to end her sentences with "-lun". She also has "Oyo!" as a catchphrase when shocked or surprised.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Implied, as she comes stumbling out of her ship with her hands covering her mouth and then doubles over off to the side. Apparently, she suffers from travel sickness often.

    Elena Amamiya (Cure Soleil) 

Voiced by: Kiyono Yasuno
Click here to see her as a civilian 
"Light up the sky! With sparkling heat! Cure Soleil!"
A third-year student at Hikaru's school who's very popular for her athleticism and friendly personality, being known as "the Sun of Mihoshi Town". When not at school, she spends most of her time working at her family's flower shop and looking after her many younger siblings. After meeting Hikaru and Lala, she eventually becomes Cure Soleil.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: How Elena sees her parents during Halloween when they dress themselves and their kids (including her) as flowers. She however replaces hers with a cat costume alongside Madoka and Yuni.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Her father is Mexican, and her mother is Japanese.
  • Character Catchphrase: "Chao!" jp  and "Sounds nice!" jp 
  • Cool Big Sis: To both her actual siblings (and she has a lot of them) and the other Cures. Her Establishing Character Moment has her stepping in when Hikaru and Lala are arguing and giving them advice on how to resolve their issues with each other.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: She's very popular with everyone at school, and in Episode 4 she gets surrounded by a group of girls who want to give love letters to her. It's shown again when she wins a ring toss game at a festival, and several girls swoon over her.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: The skirt on her cure form is the most asymmetrical and she only has purple frills on right side of her outfit. Additionally her Twinkle Style only has one sleeve on it.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: She's the Fire to Madoka's Ice abd Lala's Lightning.
  • Flaming Emblem: When she uses Soleil Shoot with one of her Princess Star Color Pens, a symbol matching the motif to the Pen she's using is added into the fireball she creates; A Scale for Libra, a Scorpion for Scorpio, and three pairs of wings for Virgo.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Highly sociable and easy-going, making her Sanguine.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She is able to befriend aliens the easiest out of the girls thanks to her warm smile and gentle nature towards them.
  • Frills of Justice: Her dress as Cure Soleil contains these, resembling a rumba dress (which fits for her being half Mexican).
  • Heroic BSoD: She and Madoka fall into this in episode 28 when they are unable to move the bellows. This leads to an It's All My Fault moment between them that the repairs will be delayed.
    • She goes through another one in episode 42 when she learns how her smile has not been genuine and been making her mother suffer. Making her hesitant to transform when the others take out their pendants.
  • In the Name of the Moon: "Incandescent radiance, illuminate the universe! Cure Soleil!"
  • In-Series Nickname: Her popularity has given her the nickname "The Sun of Mihoshi Town".
  • Kick Chick: Compared to Star and Milky, she almost exclusively uses kicks in battle - unsurprising, given that her debut episode implies she's very good at soccer. Her Signature Attack, Soleil Shoot, also has her kicking a massive fireball at her opponents.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: She has five younger siblings, who she often has to look after while their parents are busy.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Elena' is Spanish for 'torch' and the 'Ama' part of her family name can be related to Amaterasu (the 'sky' part of the name), the Japanese goddess of the sun.
  • Nom de Mom: She and all her siblings take their mother's last name. On top of that, it's never stated what their dad's last name is.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: She and Tenjo have very similar backstories of being unable to fit in in their childhoods and felt like something is wrong with her. Elena even tells Tenjo it is thanks to her she is able to realise what made her smile and it encourages her to make others smile.
  • Omniglot: She's proficient in a number of languages, thanks to her mother's work as a interpreter and her father being Mexican. In the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, she's shown to have become an interpreter herself.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Shown in episode 28 where she's reached her limit, which surprises Madoka. Also demonstrated in episode 42 and 43, where she loses her usual smile after an Armor-Piercing Question from Tenjou in episode 39.
  • Perpetual Smiler: It's very rare to not see her with a bright smile on her face. Note 
  • Playing with Fire: As Cure Soleil, she has fire-based attacks.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When transformed, her hair changes from shoulder -length to a waist-length ponytail.
  • School Idol: Her cheerful and friendly personality makes her very popular at school.
  • Signature Move: Soleil Shoot.
  • Significant Birth Date: September 8th, the day Star Trek: The Original Series premiered on American television.

    Madoka Kaguya (Cure Selene) 

Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu
Click here to see her as a civilian 
"Light up the night sky! With the secretive moonlight! Cure Selene!"
A third-year student and the Student Council President of Hikaru's middle school, known as "the Moon of Mihoshi Town". She comes from a wealthy family and holds national titles in piano and archery. After discovering that Hikaru, Lala and Elena are Pretty Cure, she becomes Cure Selene, but feels conflicted about keeping her Cure identity a secret from her father.
  • Aloof Archer: She definitely fits the bill. She's the most calm, collected, and intelligent of her team. She's also a skilled archer, both as a civilian and a Cure, being a champion in several Aikido tournaments in the former's case. This comes complete with a badass eye-shading whenever she decides to get serious in a fight. Her family name has the kanji for "arrow" in it, and her birthdate also makes her a Sagittarius (which is represented as a centaur holding a bow and arrow), which makes this trope especially appropriate for her.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Receives one from Hikaru, about whether she wants to be herself or what her family wants her to be, that proves to be the impetus for her becoming a Cure. In Episode 29, she passes on that question to Lala.
  • Broken Ace: As the student council president, she gets perfect grades and is also highly skilled at archery, piano, flower arrangements, and tea ceremonies. In episode 9, the stress of having to juggle all this plus being a Pretty Cure starts to get to her.
  • Character Catchphrase: "Good day." jp 
  • Character Development: She started out trying to be ladylike and perfect at everything (being a student and a Pretty Cure), but with the help of her friends, learns to tone down and to be able to have fun. In episode 41, she learns to do what she thinks is best for her rather than what her father wants and becomes more independent, even personally confronting her father about it in the end of the episode.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: She has national titles in piano, taking after her pianist mother.
  • Energy Bow: Her Selene Arrow is essentially a bow and arrow created out of energy.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: She's the Ice to Elena's Fire and Lala's Lightning.
  • Formal Characters Use Keigo: She speaks very formally, as would be expected from an Ojou, signified by her personal pronoun being "watakushi".
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: She's proper and observant, but also easy-going, making her Phlegmatic.
  • Giant Poofy Sleeves: Has these in her Cure form like Lala.
  • Heroic BSoD: She and Elena fall into this in episode 28 when they are unable to move the bellows. This leads to an It's All My Fault moment between them that the repairs will be delayed.
  • Idiot Hair: As Cure Selene only.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: By episode 9, the stresses of being so outwardly perfect has gotten to her and, unlike her predecessors, would rather just stop being so perfect.
  • In-Series Nickname: "The Moon of Mihoshi Town" nickname she earned from being Student Council President.
  • In the Name of the Moon: "Mysterious moon, shine in the night! Cure Selene!"
  • Making a Splash: Using Selene Arrow with the Aquarius Princess Star Color Pen lets her create her regular bow and arrow out of water, instead of energy.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Her surname "Kaguya", along with her overall moon motif, references Princess Kaguya from The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter (though Madoka's family name is written with the kanji for "fragrance", "eternity" and "arrow" while Princess Kaguya's name is typically written in hiragana), and she actually plays the part of Princess Kaguya in a movie the Cures all take part in.
    • Her Cure name "Selene" is a reference to the Greek goddess of the moon.
  • Multi Shot: She frequently use this method of attack when using her Selene Arrow.
  • Mundane Luxury: Madoka's uncompromising upbringing left no room for simpler indulgences, so she enchanted by goofing off in the shopping district and tasting a donut for the first time in episode 9. This is also shown in episode 25, where she goes to a traditional festival for the first time.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: She and Lala have the same complications about their Cure identities and if they should tell their family about it.
  • Ojou: Her family is very well off due to her father's job as a head of government.
  • The Perfectionist: How she starts off during the first half of the season thanks to her father. With the help of her friends, she learns to tone down and become more free and independent, slowly dropping this trait.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Being a Purple Cure and all, she maintains this Pretty Cure tradition by being the only member of the Star Twinkle group able to match and defeat the Notraiders' second strongest member, Galorge, on her own.
  • Rain of Arrows: At one point during a heated battle, she fired a single arrow into the sky with her Energy Bow which then created a shower of magic arrows that pummeled the mooks below.
  • School Idol: Like Elena, she's very popular at school and Hikaru even calls her "everyone's idol".
  • Shaping Your Attacks: When she uses Selene Arrow with either the Capricorn or Sagittarius Princess Star Color Pen, the bow she generates changes to match the motif of the Pen she's using; With Capricorn, the bow becomes red and adds a goat's head to it. With Sagittarius, it changes the bow to be more ornate and, additionally, adds a more defined arrowhead to the arrow.
  • Signature Move: Selene Arrow.
  • Significant Birth Date: November 23rd, the day Edwin Hubble's discovery of the Andromeda Galaxy was made public.
  • Slipknot Ponytail: At the start of the Transformation Sequence, her pigtails come off when her ribbons disappear.
  • Solar and Lunar: She's the Cure of the Moon, compared to Elena being the Cure of the Sun.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Her nationally-famous skills in archery translate to her arrow attack.
  • Student Council President: She is the one in her school, and this is why she has the nickname.
  • When She Smiles: In the end of episode 41, she gives a real genuine smile thanks to her deciding to be more independent with the help and support of her friends.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: She was raised by her father to be this ideal. She has a calm and ladylike personality, is very skilled at traditional Japanese activities like archery, flower arrangements and tea ceremonies, and is very loyal to her family. Even after becoming a Cure, she's still uneasy about the fact that she's now keeping a secret from her father, and her character arc involves her learning to find her own path rather than what her father lays out for her.

    Yuni/Mao/Blue Cat (Cure Cosmo) 

Voiced by: Sumire Uesaka
Click here to see her as Blue Cat 
Click here to see her as Mao 
"The rainbow spectrum lighting up the galaxy! Cure Cosmo!"
A mysterious girl who first appears in Episode 15. She is known to the public as the space idol, Mao. However she is in reality the elusive Phantom Thief, Blue Cat. She is also aware of the identities of the Pretty Cures. She eventually befriends the other girls and becomes the fifth Cure, Cure Cosmo.
  • Aloof Ally:
    • While she is one of the team, she's quite distant from the other Cures. She doesn't join in during fights until the very end and books it as soon as the Notrigger is defeated.
    • She closes her distance a little in episode 23. As she tells Elena, she feels that she has to do things on her own, however Elena counters that while it might have worked for her in the past, sharing that load is a lot more fun than doing it on her own. After dealing with the Notraiders and rescuing Fuwa, she tries to book it again, but Elena invokes Yuni's I Owe You My Life immediately and brings her into the fold (albeit with her still feeling distant).
    • This eventually bites her in the tail in Episode 25, where her refusal to bond with the team causes her to fight alone and without the pens. As her Rainbow Splash is powered by it, she had no way to fight back until the team comes to her aid. This leads to her further bonding with the team, even if she still remains somewhat aloof.
  • Badass Normal: As Blue Cat, her only real power is her ability to change her appearance at will, which is an inherent ability of her race. Despite this, she's able to hold her ground with the Cures and Notraiders with her own gadgets.
  • Bag of Holding: What she uses to steal her treasures.
  • Baritone of Strength: She deliberately puts on a cutesy high-pitched voice as Mao, which becomes much deeper once she reveals herself as Blue Cat.
  • Catgirl: She's a feline-like alien with a noticeable cat tail. As Mao, it's quite clear that the cloths on her head are covering her cat ears while as Blue Cat, her hat covers it. Her true form is of an anthropomorphic cat, as her whole race consists of Cat Folk.
  • Connected All Along: Blue Cat made her official debut in Episode 15, at which point she becomes a major recurring character despite not having been around for as long. When it is revealed that she was disguising herself as Bakenyan since Episode 4, it becomes readily apparent that she was invested in the plot for far longer than anyone had anticipated.
  • Dark Magical Girl: Downplayed, but still noticeable. After everybody on her home planet except her was turned to stone, she blames herself for it and is so desperate to save her planet that she resorts to becoming a thief and antagonizing the Cures. She is also rather cold and distrustful.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Downplayed. Her eyes have triangular shines in them where everyone else's are circular.
  • Expy: Producer Yanagawa cites Fujiko Mine as the inspiration for Yuni.
  • The Fashionista: Dresses rather sharply in a dandy-like manner. This includes both of her forms as Mao and Blue Cat.
  • Foreshadowing: Episode 17 has Blue Cat taking on Drams's form to divert the guards away from her and the Cures, revealing that her perfume allows her to impersonate people of the opposing gender. It makes the ensuing reveal that she was Bakenyan the whole time all the more plausible.
  • For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself: She doesn't wear a costume for the Halloween costume party, but instead goes in her true form.
  • Freudian Excuse: Initially, Yuni struggles with trusting anyone because her race has long been the victims of Fantastic Racism. Seeing the Cures' dedication to protect her from the Notraiders convinces her to open her heart to others.
  • Given Name Reveal: Episode 21 reveals that her true name is Yuni.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: She stops wearing her blue shades after joining the Cures.
  • Idol Singer: As Mao, she is this.
  • I Have Many Names: Her real name is Yuni, but before that she's known as both the space idol Mao and the phantom thief Blue Cat. After becoming a Pretty Cure, she's also known as Cure Cosmo.
  • Inept Mage: Downplayed. She hasn't fully mastered her ability to transform, hence she needs her perfume to help her out a bit. Without it, her transformations still include cat ears and a tail.
  • I Owe You My Life: She tells Elena she's in her debt in episode 23 after she helps her out in dealing with the Notraiders and saving Fuwa. Elena immediately invokes this by telling her to stop running and join the team.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Downplayed with her abducting Fuwa and the pens. While theft was most certainly in the wrong, she did it with the belief that her end goal of saving Planet Rainbow justified the means.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: Drams reveals that Blue Cat only keeps the treasures that came from Planet Rainbow; everything else she gives to the poor.
  • Last of His Kind: She's the only surviving member of her species after Aiwarn turned them into stone. She survived by fleeing the planet with her spaceship.
  • Master of Disguise: Her Rainbow Perfume not only lets her change between Mao and Blue Cat, but can also let her take on the appearance of others. Best displayed at the start of her transformation, where several images of her disguises appear.
  • Meaningful Name: Her real name Yuni is likely a take on "universe".
  • Morphic Resonance: All her forms incorporate her cat ears and tail. When she turns into Cure Star for a Mirror Match, she retains her sharper eyes.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: When Yuni is startled, she holds up her hands like claws, reminiscent of a threatened cat. She also has to be held back from eating live fish when the Cures land on an ocean planet.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: She only joined the Cures to locate the Star Pens to save her world. The other girls are trying to help her get more comfortable and trusting of them.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: Her and Aiwarn's conflict are for very similar reasons. They hold permanent grudges against each other after they took something important from each other (Yuni's world and Aiwarn's place in the Notraiders). Lala points this out between them in episode 25, as they're both aliens who have difficulty adjusting to Earth's culture.
  • Only One Name: Unlike her teammates, she has no surname of her own, thus she is referred as just Yuni.
  • Phantom Thief: Her true identity is that of a thief who steals valuables. This includes the Star Color Pens.
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: In Episode 20, reliving Planet Rainbow's destruction shorts out her perfume's power and reveals her true, humanoid cat form to the Cures.
  • Rainbow Motif: As Cure Cosmo. She's technically considered a blue Cure, though, which could refer to the sky in which rainbows are seen.
  • The Mole: She infiltrated the Notraiders by taking on a disguise named Bakenyan.
  • Secret Identity: Only the Cures know she is secretly the elusive Blue Cat.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: A victim of this after her planet is turned into stone. Courtesy of Aiwarn.
  • Signature Move: Rainbow Splash.
  • Significant Birth Date: October 11th, the day the Apollo 7 mission was launched in 1968 (and the day NASA launched their 100th space shuttle in 2000).

  • Stealth Pun: She’s a thief whose true form is an anthropomorphic cat — a cat burglar, if you will.

  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Her perfume allows her to assume masculine appearances as well, as she did with Bakenyan.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Towards Aiwarn after hearing what happened to her after their last encounter.
  • Took a Level in Idealism: Initially, Yuni was unwilling to trust and rely on anyone due to her people suffering Fantastic Racism. After the Cures proves themselves to be good people, she starts to trust others and even forgives the one who petrified her people.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Fish, of course, as well as her Matter Cookies (which are apparently infused with catnip). Her love of fish is something of an Informed Attribute, since it only comes up in situations where she can't eat fish.
  • Tsundere: She tries to pretend that she isn't friends with the other Cures and keep her distance most of the time due to trust issues.
  • Verbal Tic: Says -nyan at the end of her sentences. In the subtitles, this is translated into cat puns.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Uses her perfume to transform herself into whoever she pleases. However, the perfume itself is only used by novices, as transformation at will is a trait among her people.

Starry Sky World

One of the two fairies in this series. She was created by the Star Princesses as their last hope.
  • Adaptational Species Change: For the Stage Shows, a third form is given for Fuwa, as a human girl.note  What's most notable about this is that it was also rendered in the show's art style for tie-in materials.

  • Disney Death: The Cures revive her at the cost of their powers.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices herself to stop the Cures from being sucked into a black hole.
  • Hiccup Hijinks: Hers makes her multiply, and are caused by her eating Yuni's catnip.
  • It's All About Me: In episode 33, she gets so fixated on finding Twinkle Imagination that she starts trying to help the Cures with their work, not realising she's getting in their way (notably towards Hikaru and Madoka). Hikaru calls her out for her selfishness, though later realizes the Cures weren't much better by hurting her feelings and not properly explaining Wake Up, Go to School & Save the World to her.
  • It's All My Fault: She blamed herself for Yeti becoming Kappard's next Victim of the Week because of her reckless actions.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: Since she's fluffy, fuwa in Japanese, that's what Hikaru decides to call her. It's also the only thing she can say at the moment. Her real first name foreshadows her true form as an alicorn.
  • Living MacGuffin: She is important to unsealing the Star Princesses.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: A variation. Fuwa has a real name, but it's only mentioned once, and by episode 3 pretty much everyone is calling Fuwa by her new nickname, including the Star Princesses.
  • Overly Long Name: According to Prunce, her real name is Spegasus Pulalan Mofpit Prinsewink. No-one really uses it.

  • Self-Duplication: In episode 23, she did this after getting hiccups.
  • Super-Empowering: She's the one who gives the Cures their Star Color Pendants and Star Color Pens that they need to transform, and this is triggered when they each make a Declaration of Protection towards her.

  • Third-Person Person: Often refers to herself in the third person.

  • Tears of Joy: Upon seeing all the princesses are back, he breaks into tears and thanks the Cures.
  • Third-Person Person: Often refers to himself in the third person.

The Notraiders

The main antagonists of the series. They are an intergalactic army of space raiders whose goal is to achieve universal domination through collecting the Star Color Princess Pens and capturing Fuwa to drain all light from the universe.
    In General 
  • Arch-Enemy: Each general has a particular cure who serves as this to them.
    • Kappart towards Lala and to a further extent, Hikaru.
    • Tenjo is this towards Elena.
    • Aiwarn is this towards Yuni.
    • Galogre is seemingly towards Madoka but also seemingly towards Hikaru in their last battle for the princess pens.

  • Fusion Dance: The three generals of the group fuse into a single Nottoreiga in Episode 11.

  • Monster of the Week: Zig-Zagged! Depending on the commander, there are one of three outcomes alongside using Mooks to fill the gap.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: The leading members of Notraiders appear as silhouettes in the opening sequence of the series. Once each member has their first battle with the Cures, their faces are revealed.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Episode 10 ends with Kappard, Tenjo, and Aiwarn having powered up and taken the Taurus pen back as well as having beaten the Cures, not to mention having found and taken the Aries pen.
  • Theme Naming: Their leaders' names are all references to traditional Japanese youkai. Darknest is the exception for this trope, as his name doesn’t play on his Youkai.
  • Youkai: The overall theme for the leaders of the group, being all based on different youkai in terms of appearance and names.

Click here to see her true identity 
The leader of the Notraiders, who the Notraiders seek to revive by obtaining all the pens. She partially revives in Episode 21. In episode 46, it's revealed she's the 13th Star Princess of the Ophiuchus constellation.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: She's the 13th Star Princess... And the leader of the Notraiders.
  • Actually a Doombot: She makes an armor of herself and has a Nottorei test it on the Cures in Episode 44. Though the Nottorei is defeated, she believes the armor was tested well enough.
  • Antagonist Abilities: Sure, the Cures are powerful and can use the Star Princess Pens to further enhance their own abilities, but Ophiuchus is a literal god. As such, it doesn't take much from her to beat them all down to the ground, and even her limiting Darknest persona still gave the team trouble.
  • Bad Boss: For all the Notraiders' loyalty, Darknest does not give one crap about them. Why would she, when she planned to destroy the universe anyway?
  • Big Bad: The ancient leader of the Notraiders... who's actually intending to destroy the entire universe to fulfil her own agenda.
  • Cosmic Entity: An ancient and dormant extraterrestial entity that, should she be revived fully, will cause every star in the universe to go out, thus plunging it into darkness.
  • Defeat Means Respect: When the Cures gain the upper hand in the final battle, the Ophiuchus Princess surrenders gracefully and decides to reassess her opinion of imagination.
  • Divine Conflict: As per her backstory, Ophiuchus heavily disagreed with the rest of the Star Princesses' plan to give mortals the power of imagination believing to bring nothing but chaos (Which isn't untrue). It comes to a boiling point when she was exiled from the Star Palace, leading her to adopt the Darknest personality before raiding her former home with the help of the Notraiders, kicking off the main events of the show.
  • Easily Forgiven: Who cares if she attempted sororicide and galactic genocide? She was able to understand the power behind imagination and backed down, so that means she gets a free pass from the heroes.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hates mortals, even moreso when imagination power gets thrown into the mix.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: All of the other Star Princesses' and Cure's colors are bright and vibrant. Ophiuchus revels in the dark purple and green color palette, with her own Battle Aura having a Sickly Green Glow to it.
  • In Their Own Image: Wants to completely wipe the universe clean of all mortals and imagination power in order to recreate everything in her own perfect vision.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Was trapped in a dormant state until Episode 21. It gets worse for the heroes from there.
  • The Power of the Void: The basic scope of Darknest's power is black holes and reducing things to nothingness.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Her true identity is in fact the 13th Star Princess of the Ophiuchus constellation.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Her outfit has a snake wrapped around it, and she’s the main villain, so she’s obviously sinister. It also foreshadows her true identity as the Ophiuchus princess (representing the Snake Bearer).
  • Youkai: Her snake-ish appearance references several youkai, but is closest related to the "Uwabami" youkai. It ends up being a reference to the Ophiuchus constellation, used by certain astronomers as a 13th zodiac symbol.

The second-in command of the Notraiders. He's an oni-like alien.



Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya
The first commander to appear. He's a kappa-like alien from a species called Amphicaeliums, armed with a lance.

His method of combat is to engage the Cures himself, with some Notreis as support.

  • Bald of Evil: A Running Gag with Kappard as the camera seems to love his shiny bald spot.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "O my blade, absorb their distorted imagination!" Said when he transforms his weapon.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Kappard’s planet was drained of all its water to force him to join the Notraiders.
  • Freudian Excuse: Kappard cannot fathom peaceful coexistence between different species because invaders brought ruin to his home world.
  • Frog Men: Based on a kappa, and his species name appears to come from the word "amphibian".
  • Kappa: The youkai he's based on, what with having greenish-blue skin, a hollow part on his head, and his name sounding like the word "kappa".
  • Laser Blade: He has a double-sided one as his weapons. After being powered up by Darknest it becomes a Morph Weapon by absorbing twisted imagination.
  • Wham Line: Towards the cures that Lala or Yuni could possibly betray them (as other aliens did to his species).


Voiced by: Aya Endo
The second commander to appear. She's a tengu-like alien armed with with a fan.

Her method of combat is to send large numbers of Notreis at the Cures in different formations and strategies.

  • Arch-Enemy: It's hinted multiple times she views Elena/Cure Soleil this way. Especially how multiple of her attacks revolve around her family or her directly (almost every human she makes a giant Norteri has some connection with Elena). She also tries to exploit her given the chance in an attempt to weaken her.
  • The Baroness: Of the Sexpot variety, albeit very toned down given that this is a kids' show (though she still shows the most skin out of any female villain other than Benigyo). She's incredibly haughty and her underlings often carry her around or fawn over her.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Flap my fan! Blow up the distorted imagination!" Said when she creates a giant Notrei.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Episode 43 reveals that she was the subject of ostracism and scrutiny due to her physical appearance, inspiring her to join the Notraiders to get back at her bullies.
  • Elite Mook: After being powered up by Darknest, she can infuse distorted imgination into Notreis, creating a Giant Mook.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Even she is horrified by Aiwarn hacking into Planat Saman's main computer in episode 30.
  • Face-Revealing Turn: During the fight with the cures in episode 43, her mask is knocked off and her true face is revealed.
  • Freudian Excuse: For being born without a long nose, Tenjo was treated like a hideous freak by her own people. Small wonder she doesn't believe in things like the kindness of strangers.
  • Gratuitous English: Is able to speak fluent English when disguised as a teacher at the girl's school.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: She's a red female villain in a Leotard of Power.
  • Leotard of Power: Wears a red one as her uniform.
  • Makeup Is Evil: She is evil and has yellow eyeshadow and yellow lipstick.
  • Manipulative Bastard: She managed to convince Elena to share a dark and depressing story for the school's contest to twist her imagination and weaken her. Her plan is unsuccessful however thanks to Elena putting a positive spin of the story.
  • Never Bareheaded: A face variant: she's never seen without the mask.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Her attempt at weakening Cure Soleil by having Elena write about her Dark and Troubled Past results in her becoming more accepting of who she truly is and even more confident in herself. Cure Soleil even thanks her for it during their fight.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: She and Elena have very similar backstories of being unable to fit in in their childhoods and felt like something is wrong with her.
  • One-Winged Angel: Becomes the 10th Giant Nottorei in episode 43.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: She wears red and has a black mask.
  • Smug Snake: Very downplayed, but when the Cures are able to counter her strategy, she panics slightly and is unable to adjust her plans on the fly. However, she quickly recovers and proves to be more challenging for the Cures than Kappard.
  • Tengu: The youkai she's based on; she wears a mask with a long nose, has red skin, and carries a fan (which tengu are often depicted with).
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: She utilizes her Mooks more effectively than Kappard, and the Cures actually have to develop a counter-strategy instead of going in guns blazing like previously.
  • Zerg Rush: Generally relies on overwhelming the Cures with numbers.


Voiced by: Rie Murakawa
The third commander to appear. She's a hitotsume-kozo-like alien.

Her method of combat is to use the Dark Star Color Pens she acquires to create Notriggers to attack the Cures. When she returns after being kicked out of the Notraiders, she switches to using the Aiwarn Robot Unit, a ship/robot modified from the spaceship she stole from Yuni, giving it different armaments by fueling it with her personal Dark Imagination.

  • Arch-Enemy: Yuni is this for her throughout the series ever since she turned her world into stone. Their rivalry grew more intense when she lost her position in the Notraiders and blamed her for it.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her hairstyle in the Distant Finale.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Dark Pen! Blot out their imagination!" said when transforming someone into a Notrigger. Once she comes back with the Aiwarn Robot Unit, she announces "Dark Chemistry! Explode!" when activating its Robot Mode.
  • Character Catchphrase: Her Evil Laugh is this.
  • Cyclops: She has a single blue eye, referencing how she's based on the one-eyed Hitotsume-kozou.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: A lesser example compared to Galogre and Kappard: She was apparently lost and all alone before being taken in for her inventions. Why she was lost is never explained.
  • Easily Forgiven: In the finale, she apologizes to the people of Planet Rainbow for turning them to stone. They forgive her and let her live on the planet with them.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Aiwarn decided to attack the Rainbow people with the Dark Pen but, being a prototype, it went haywire and turned the people into stone, forcing her to escape.
  • Evil Laugh: She says "Kehyahya!" a lot!
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: The end of Episode 38, Yuni's apology hits her heart hard. But when they invite her to join hem, she snaps out of it and takes off angrily rather than make a full Heel–Face Turn.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Arrives just in time in Episode 46 to save the cures from the Notraiders, allowing the cures to purify them.
  • Hero Stole My Bike: More like "Villain Stole My Ship", but similar concept. See Villain: Exit, Stage Left below.
  • In the Hood: When the image of the Notraiders is changed in Episode 26, she’s shown wearing a hoodie.
  • It's Personal: Aiwarn declares vengeance on Cure Cosmo specifically when she's revealed as The Mole Bakenyan.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Don’t let her looks fool you- she’s done some of the worst things any villain in Pretty Cure history has done, and things usually get serious when she’s around.
  • Lack of Empathy: She didn't care when she accidentally destroyed Planet Rainbow's people. Likewise she disrespects the other two generals.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: Over-Time regularly turns her "-ttsuno~" into this.
  • Mad Scientist: Bakenyan refers to her as the scientist of the Notraiders. Indeed, she figured out how to convert the Leo Pen into a Dark Pen.
  • Makeup Is Evil: She is evil and wears some eyeshadow and lipstick.
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: She went to ask the citizens of Planet Rainbow for a Princess Pen, wounds up accidentally turning them all into stone when they refused to hand it over. Not that this affected her in any way.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: Her and Yuni's conflict are for very similar reasons. They hold permanent grudges against each other after they took something important from each other (Yuni's world and Aiwarn's place in the Notraiders), which Lala points out.
  • One-Winged Angel: She turns herself into a Nottoreiga to fight the Cures in Episode 20.
  • Perky Female Minion: Compared to Tenjo, she's considerably more giggly and playful, though still in a very mean-spirited way.
  • Planet Destroyer: Albeit accidentally, however she was the one who petrified the citizens of Planet Rainbow into stone.
  • Punny Name: Her name in katakana (アイワーン) is a small corruption of "eye one" (アイ ワン), referring to her one eye.
  • Teen Genius: Her exact age isn't stated, but she's most likely this; she calls Kappard and Tenjo "ancient", then flips out when Cures make a remark about her young appearance (and Lala has already demonstrated that 13 is considered an adult on some planets).
  • Teens Are Monsters: Well, she is a teen who is a monstrous, bratty Jerkass.
  • Tomboyness Upgrade: In the distant finale, she goes from her girlish pigtails and dress to having Boyish Short Hair with trousers and a tanktop and seems to have become an engineer.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After the cures save her from Darknest, Aiwarn thanks them by stealing Uni's ride for a joyride.
  • Verbal Tic: She tends to end her sentences with "(da)ttsū no".
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: When she is defeated by Cure Cosmo in Episode 21, she makes off with the latter's ship.
  • Youkai: Like the other leading members of the organization, she is based on a Youkai; in this case, a lesser known one called the Hitotsume-kozou.

A Cat-like Notraider based on a bakeneko who acts as a personal manservant for Aiwarn.

  • Bakeneko and Nekomata: He’s based off the bakeneko Youkai.
  • Battle Butler: Though he hasn’t gotten into combat yet, we can assume he’s more than just a simple butler. And since he’s Yuni, that’s more than true.
  • Enigmatic Minion: There's hints that he's more powerful than he lets on and that he doesn't truly support the Notraiders. It turns out he’s actually Yuni in a disguise, spying upon the Notraiders.
  • The Reveal: He was never a member of the Notraiders to begin with- he was actually a disguise used by Yuni.
  • Servile Snarker: Not afraid to call Aiwarn out over her failures, much to her annoyance.

  • Babies Ever After: In the Distant Finale, Reina is seen holding a baby in her arms and an older daughter.
  • Blush Stickers: Takuto, Ikuto, and Anna all have small ones, which is fitting since they're young children.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Takuto and Ikuto have the first letter of their name printed on their shirts.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Like Elena, they're all half Japanese and half Mexican.
  • Family Theme Naming: The girls all have names ending with "-na" (Elena, Reina, and Anna).
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Touma just wants a normal family after he is embarrassed by his family and wishes they didn't dance around so much. He learned to love and accept his family the way it is thanks to Elena after she told him she used to be the same but learned to love them still.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: They are Elena's five younger siblings, all of whom she often has to look after while their parents are busy.
  • Nom de Mom: Much like Elena, they all take their mother's last name. On top of that, it's never stated what their dad's last name is.

    Fuyuki Kaguya 

Voiced by: Ken Narita
Madoka's father.
  • Abusive Parents: Of the emotional abuse variety. While he only wants what he thinks is best for Madoka, he enforces a strict and stressful perfectionism on her. It's to the point that Madoka feels too pressured to do anything except comply.
  • Fantastic Racism: Doesn't have a good opinion on aliens, hence the reason Hikaru and her friends convinced Madoka to keep Fuwa as a secret from him.
    • This is best shown in episode 40, where he becomes fully convinced that Lala is an alien, and questions her classmates about her, essentially turning them against her with his claims of abductions and alien experimentation. Thankfully, after Lala defends the class from Kappard, they realize he is wrong about her and defend her from him, protecting her secret.
  • Masquerade: He is part of a faction dedicated to finding any aliens among Earth without the public ever finding out.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Happens when he's pursuing the girls in episode 11.
  • Victim of the Week: He was the seventh to be targeted by Kappard to steal his imagination for his weapon
