Pretty Cure 5

    In General 

    Nozomi Yumehara (Cure Dream

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei

An airheaded girl who can't seem to concentrate on just one thing and pretty much talentless and had no idea about what she really wanted, although she believed in the importance of reaching out for her dream. She's a second year student in L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières. She bumped into Coco in her school's library and after an encounter with the Nightmare, she was chosen to become Cure Dream and decided that she's going to restore Coco's Palmier Kingdom and see through it to the end... this time not losing sight of that. Along the journey, as Coco posed as their teacher, Nozomi also discovers her own dream that she'll reach out one day: to become a teacher.

Tropes associated with Nozomi:

  • Action Girl: She's a strong all-rounder fighter, and her attacks are strong enough to usually destroy the Monster of the Week.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: She gets distracted easily. The entire series, as well as its Oddly Named Sequel — happens because Nozomi gets distracted one morning before school and chases a passing butterfly. In a later episode, she displayed more realistic ADHD symptoms. ADHD was never explicitly mentioned, but the intention was clear.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a real sweetie and is willing to be friends with almost anyone. She also leads the team to destroying two evil organizations attacking the world.
  • Bare Your Midriff: As Cure Dream, her top is short and shows her belly. Though not anymore in Go!Go!, thanks to a Frilly Upgrade.
  • Berserk Button: Do not trivialize dreams. Nozomi wasted no time letting Girinma know what a bad idea it is in the very first episode.
  • Big Eater: She'll eat anything in front of her and lots of it.
  • Book Dumb: She struggles to get even acceptable grades.
  • Catchphrase: "Watch it, watch it, watch it, okay?" note  and "It's decided!" note 
    • If she says "Okay!" in the beginning, expect her to finish with, "It's decided!"
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: During her daily life she's an idiot that often needs to rely on her friends to get anything done. During battle she's a walking force of destruction, both physically and magically.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Occasionally has this reaction whenever she sees something that's tiny and plushie-like, namely when she first sees Coco's true form and when she first encounters Milk.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Note to the enemy: if you're lucky, you'll have her as an opponent and ultimately be spared. But one word of advice: don't be an Omnicidal Maniac, let alone murder your own Dragon as having outlived her usefulness, because Everyone Has Standards, even the most forgiving.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Nozomi's crux of Character Development is this. The reason why she has such a short attention span was because she's always looking for what she wanted to do (getting kicked out of various clubs were because it took her quick enough to realize those are not what she wanted). After meeting Coco and deciding to help the Palmier Kingdom, Nozomi slowly starts to realize that she likes helping people the best and put attention to it, and after a 'tutoring' from Coco and seeing him teach her, she finally realizes her dream to be a teacher, to help those in academical trouble (like she was before).
    • This is actually called back in Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 3: she's trapped inside a dream world, living out her dream of being a teacher... and promptly realizes this isn't what she wants and proceeds to kick herself out of it and kick the other Cures out of their dream worlds in the process! She wants her dream, but she'll get it her own way.
  • The Ditz: She's absentminded, and misses the obvious even when its staring right at her, like when she misses Milky Rose's identity right after she transforms into her true form right in front of Nozomi. It is played seriously in one episode where she is aware of this flaw and is not happy at the academic trouble she's had.
  • Dumbass No More: Nozomi at the beginning is a scatterbrain hopeless with everything, be it studying, paying attention, athleticness or whatever. Over time, she starts paying attention more to her studies, resulting in better grades. As of the middle of GoGo!, she is capable of tutoring Rin's younger siblings.
  • Expressive Hair: Her hair always shoots up or droops according to her mood.
  • Fountain of Expies: Internally. Almost every single succeeding Pretty Cure protagonist Pink Heroine is a direct Expy of Nozomi. Some downplay or play up some of her traits but only a few massive subvert them.
  • Genki Girl: Super energetic and hyper.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears some of her hair in two pigtails.
  • Heart Beat-Down: Her attacks are buttlerfly-shaped beams.
  • Heavy Sleeper: As part of her ditzy moments, she sleeps a lot.
  • Idiot Hero: Downplayed as most of it is due to her absentmindedness than anything.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Coco.
  • Jumped at the Call: Before she even knew there was a call to jump at!
  • The Leader: Headstrong and Charismatic. The other Cures unanimously chose her to fill this role because she was the one that brought them together to be Pretty Cure in the first place. Not that she'll claim she's the leader. She thinks they don't need one anyway.
  • Lethal Chef: Let's just say her cooking is... not great. The lesser said, the better.
  • Loser Friend Puzzles Outsiders: Nozomi is the loser friend in this case, and everyone in school, especially Mika Masuko, is perplexed by how the four most popular girls in the school seem to have coalesced into a friend group centered around this one unimpressive girl who is a notoriously useless screwup that got booted out of every club.
  • Meaningful Name: Nozomi = 'hope', 'Yume' = dream. Also doubles as a Prophetic Name.
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: Whenever she shouts her Catchphrase, she points upwards with her left hand in a way that her thumb and finger together make a reverse L shape to the viewer. See it here.
  • Mundane Utility: At first, she wanted to use the Dream Collet to... get her homework done!
  • The Nose Knows: Her nose is so good that she can smell crépe's smell on a little part of a flyer.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: You know a villain has crossed the line you don't ever come back from when this All-Loving Hero has zero sympathy whatsoever for said villain.
  • Pink Heroine: She's the main heroine of the show and as Cure Dream, she has pink hair and wears pink.
  • Plucky Girl: "I am not giving in to despair!"
  • Precocious Crush: On Coco.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When she turns into Cure Dream, her hair goes from neck length to mid back length.
  • The Power of Love: How she breaks Coco out of his brainwashing.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She is the first one in the franchise, starting the trend of having optimistic pink-haired girls as the main characters.
  • Stock Shoujo Heroine: She's the typical shoujo anime heroine; ditzy, childish, and clumsy Rose-Haired Sweetie with a big heart and a bright perspective. She has magic powers related to hope and dreams.
  • Tareme Eyes: More blatantly so than anybody else.
  • This Loser Is You: At least at first, as she's extremely scatterbrained and can't seem to concentrate. However, by the time Character Development kicks in, Nozomi starts moving away from this, as she becomes more responsible and tries her best to reach out for her dreams.
    • Also unlike Tsubomi later, Nozomi kind of subverts this. When she becomes Cure Dream, she didn't flail around like a clueless ditz, she was pretty capable into immediately getting into combat. It's just that when she's just Nozomi that she's sucking in life (until Character Development above).
  • Trope Codifier: Yumehara Nozomi is both similar and different to her predecessors Misumi Nagisa and Hyuuga Saki. However she is “what Toei wants” for their Pretty Cure Pink Heroine protagonists. Nozomi is a middle-school Book Dumb Genki Girl with a sense of justice. Until Character Development kicks in, Nozomi has no goal in life. She Jumps At The Call, she has no friends that are not relevant to the plot, her family have no real presence in her life. She also has no real athletic abilities. Nozomi is also neither officially the leader nor the strongest on the team, just The Hero and the one most prominent.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly girl to Rin's tomboy.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Milk/Kurumi. They argue a lot, but they become eventually close friends.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist

    Rin Natsuki (Cure Rouge

Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi
"The red flame of passion, Cure Rouge!"
Nozomi's best friend since childhood. She becomes Cure Rouge after witnessing Nozomi fighting as Cure Dream.

Tropes associated with Rin:

    Urara Kasugano (Cure Lemonade

Voiced by: Mariya Ise
"The effervescence of bursting lemon, Cure Lemonade!"
A freshman in L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières school and an idol in training. Due to her busy schedule, Urara usually kept to herself, and her shy attitude doesn't help, although when situation calls it, she can ham things up. However, Nozomi barges into her life trying to befriend her and after an encounter with the Nightmare, her desire to protect her new friends led her to become Cure Lemonade. Afterwards, with her new friends, Urara began her journey not just as a Pretty Cure, but also evolving into a world-class idol.

Tropes associated with Urara:

  • Accidental Hero: In the first movie, she's the reason the villain's plan failed because she never handed the pink the Big Bad needed to finally accomplish his plans.
  • Action Girl: Duh. Being a Cure enables her to give a few kicks to any foe standing in the way, especially if she's using her own finishers to defeat the Monster of the Week.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Being a first-year middle school student, Urara is the youngest member of the team.
  • Badass Adorable: Super cute and able to smash Kowainaas as a Pretty Cure.
  • Big Eater: Probably the reigning champion in the show!
  • But Not Too Foreign: Urara's father is French, but her mother was Japanese.
  • The Cameo: Appears in Pretty Cure Miracle Leap as the leading lady of P.P. Abraham's latest movie. This comes before her and the rest of the Yes Cures in The Movie for Healin' Good♡Pretty Cure.
  • Chain Pain: In Go Go, her attack Prism Chain creates two chains made of butterflies that come out of her arms and acts as her weapon.
  • Comfort Food: Curry Rice. This is because one of few memories Urara has of her mother was the first time she ate curry, and it was with the whole family together.
  • Cute Bruiser: Is she adorable? Definitely. Does that stop her from beating the daylights out of the villains she faces? No.
  • Dual Wielding: Her Prism Chain attack always has two chains.
  • Dumb Blonde: While she's more studious than Nozomi, she's just as likely as her to realize obvious things too late.
  • Friendless Background: Because of her busy lifestyle as an actress, she had no friends when she started middle school.
  • Genki Girl: Very energetic and cheerful, though not to Nozomi's extent.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in a pair of pigtails, showing her status as the youngest team member.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's a sweet and cheerful young girl with blonde hair.
  • Idol Singer: She is already an up-and-coming star when the series begins.
  • Image Songs: Sure, all of the Cures get them, but she gets to sing hers in-universe.
  • Interspecies Romance: Hinted at with Syrup. Due to him being physically closer to the Cures' age than Coco and Nuts, it's been bette received by the fandom at large.
  • Large Ham: If she feels like it, she could ham her words up. After all, she's an actress.
  • Light 'em Up: As Cure Lemonade, her main element is light. Yellow is often associated with light, or even the sun.
  • Missing Mom: She died when Urara was very little. A regular source of despair for Urara is how little she remembers of her mother.
  • New Transfer Student: She arrives at the main cast's school as a transfer student.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: Her Cure outfit in the first season. While Mint and Aqua are mostly palette swaps of each other, and Dream and Rouge are similar to each other with some small differences, Lemonade's outfit has a different skirt, sleeves, shoes, and socks than the other four. She's also the only one to wear a ribbon choker.
  • Raised by Dudes: After the death of her mother, Urara was brought up by her father and maternal grandfather.
  • Screw Yourself: Her Enemy Without in episode 23 flirts with her! Really!
  • Show Within a Show: Took part in several... a Mythology Gag among which!
  • Tareme Eyes: Has eyes that sag a little at the ends and is overall cute and compassionate.

    Komachi Akimoto (Cure Mint

Voiced by: Ai Nagano
"The green earth of tranquility, Cure Mint!"
A third-year student of L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières and usually volunteers to manage the library. Komachi is the daughter of the head of a famed sweets shop. She's calm and assuring, but is pretty scary when she snaps. She's also a novel writer, thus easily getting excited over unnatural things. This 'unnatural thing interest' led her to follow Nozomi, witness the Nightmare, and becomes Cure Mint. Aside of her being a Precure, Komachi also got her novel reviewed by Nuts, also developing a crush on him.

Tropes associated with Komachi:

    Karen Minazuki (Cure Aqua

Voiced by: Ai Maeda
"The blue spring of intelligence, Cure Aqua!"
A third-year student of L'Ecole des Cinq Lumières and the Student Council President. At first she thinks the Pretty Cure thing is a farce, but was forced to believe it when the Nightmare invaded her house. But then she failed to become a Pretty Cure due to her 'do-things-herself' mindset. Despite so, Nozomi continued to bug her about becoming a Pretty Cure, and after realizing that she wants to protect her friends, Karen is able to become Cure Aqua. During the course of the series, she develops a rapport with Milk and discovers her dream to help those who are sick, and she starts learning on how to become a doctor.

Tropes associated with Karen:

  • Action Girl: Just like her friends, from physical blows to her Finishing Move.
  • Adventure Rebuff: In the beginning she thought of becoming Cure Aqua just because she thinks in the end, to do it right, she can't depend on anyone if she wants to do things right... resulting in her butterfly vanishing and forcing her to watch Bunbee trounce the Cures and get away with the Pinky. It's only after her resolve was to protect her friends instead of doing things herself that she can transform.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Aside of being the tallest of the group and her dark blue hair stand out, in the beginning, she presents herself as the aloof, serious, stoic (albeit caring) girl. She mellows down after becoming a Cure, but the element is still there.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Unlike her friends she did not show interest it to any boy, and instead has a possible Interspecies Romance with Milk.
  • Archer Archetype: Gains the "Pretty Cure Sapphire Arrow" eventually, and being the Cure of Intelligence she mostly keeps her calm, cool, collected persona. In a subversion, that attack is usually reserved for finishing blows, she usually resorts into pummelling the enemy with fists and feet before that happens.
  • Big Eater: Funniest thing, she's so ladylike when she eats all of her food.
  • Big Fancy House: She basically lives in some sort of a mansion, owing to her family's wealth.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke: When the gang goes vacationing in her mountain resort, she tries to joke that her family owns everything in the mountain range; they take her seriously, much to her embarrassment. Jiiya, however, is driven to tears that his mistress is even telling jokes now.
  • Cross-Cast Role: When sent to the Urashima Tarou's world by Shibiretta, Karen got saddled with the role of the titular character, and the kids who 'tortured' the turtle (Milk) refer her as "onii-chan", to her puzzlement.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She starts out as your typical cold, stoic, but Lonely Rich Kid, opening only to Komachi. Thanks to Nozomi 'barging in' to her life and becoming Cure Aqua, she starts opening up to more people.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: It's only fitting that the Pretty Cure of water has blue eyes.
  • Elemental Hair Colors: She's the Pretty Cure of water and has long,flowing blue hair even her civilian form.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Milk, probably. About as likely as Syrup/Urara.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Plays this role in episode 34 (which even has in its title "White Knight Karen"). In order to protect Milk, she sword-fights Hadenya while riding a white horse.
  • Lady of War: Cool and graceful, she later gains an attack in which she gracefully fires an arrow made of water.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Her parents do a lot of concert tours, so she only lives with her butler at her mansion. Before joining the Pretty Cure team, Komachi was her Only Friend.
  • Mage Marksman: When using "Sapphire Arrow" she creates a bow and arrows made of water.
  • Making a Splash: As Cure Aqua, her attacks are all made of water.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Her Aqua Ribbon gains a sword form for the horseback duel with Hadeenya.
  • Ojou: Karen has a no-nonsense, stoic personality that evokes a cool aura and made her popular, not to mention she's ridiculously rich.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: When she turns into Cure Aqua, her hair goes from mid back length to possibly hip length although it's hard to tell because of the ponytail.
  • Refusal of the Call: At first, after failing to transform.
  • Student Council President: A lot of her episodes in the first season have her duties as the head of the student council as a focus.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's very serious, collected, and focused. Her Pretty Cure teammates and Milk see her warm side.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Rin's Tomboy.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: According to her butler, she's a lot livelier afterwards.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Grape juice.
  • True Blue Femininity: She's the graceful Ojou of the group and blue is her color in clothes, hair, and eyes.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Her sharp eye shape reflect her cool and serious character.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She and Rin don't rub on each other warmly but they always ensure they're fine.
  • Water Is Blue: Her color as the Pretty Cure of water is blue.
  • Water Is Womanly: She's a calm, elegant Ojou with water powers and a blue Color Motif.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Despite her westernized style or wealth, Karen is pretty much the closest one we can get, she's loyal and protective to her friends and will bet on everything to defend them and her home. Also, her 'dream marriage' scenario is also the only one that follows the traditional style.

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama

The first villain to appear in the series. Girinma is one of Bunbee's three subordinates. His true form is a humanoid praying mantis.

  • Animal Motif: Praying mantis.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: His Animal Motif is a Praying Mantis.
  • Dirty Coward: He doesn't mind ducking out of a pinch and leaving everyone else to suffer.
  • Kick the Dog: He revels in this. Aside from his eventual turning of Urara's mother's memento into a Kowaiina, he usually likes drilling the fact that Nuts' kindness caused the Nightmare to be able to destroy Palmier Kingdom, reasoning with "The one who lets himself get tricked is the wrong one."
  • Mask of Power: He puts the black Kowaina mask on his face and transforms into a huge monster in his finale battle.
  • Never My Fault: It's always the Palmier's Kingdom's fault for being gullible, not unlike him, who... you know... makes people suffer with his acts without considering the side effect?
  • One-Winged Angel: His Black Mask form turns him into a giant spiky Praying Mantis.
  • Undying Loyalty: For his faults, he's damn loyal to the company, something that Kawarino praised.


Voiced by: Akio Suyama

Tropes associated with Gamao:

Bunbee is the boss of Girinma, Gamao and Arachnea. His true form is a humanoid bee. He suffers from his department's failures and he's often criticized by Kawarino. After Gamao deserted Nightmare and Girinma and Arachnea's deaths, his department is disbanded and he becomes the subordinate of the members of the second department.

After the defeat of Nightmare, he joins Eternal in the sequel, working as a subordinate for several villains, but ultimately leaving them and he becomes an ally of the heroines.

Tropes associated with Bunbee:

Voiced by: Eiji Maruyama

A veteran member of the second department who always transforms rooms into Kowainas. His true form is a humanoid bat. He was also Kawarino's previous superior.

Tropes associated with Bloody:


Voiced by: Hiro Yuki

Kawarino is Desparaiah's secretary, and one of the three core members in the second department. He's sneaky, feels no sympathy to anyone, but the most powerful employee of Nightmare. His true form is a gigantic humanoid chameleon.

Tropes associated with Kawarino:

  • Animal Motif: Chameleon.
  • Deceptive Disciple: Was once Bloody's henchman, but...
  • The Dragon: To Despariah.
    • Dragon-in-Chief: Is a much more dangerous and active threat to the Pretty Cure 5 than his boss.
    • The Heavy: He's responsible for the invasion and destruction of the Palmier Kingdom, he manipulates and abuses all other villains, and he's the one who makes Desparaiah's wish coming true. And if the Palmier Kingdom was never destroyed, the Pretty Cure 5 wouldn't even exist.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Despariah was contemplating that there's more than despair and prepares a Heel–Face Turn, Kawarino reforms himself and rants on why Despariah won't get into despair again.
    • For the Evulz: Due to this, it casts judgment in what he claims of doing it for Despariah, he's probably liking spreading despair because he personally likes it.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Averted. His voice is so high, you can mistake him for a woman or having a female seiyuu. Even in his true form, his voice is still very high.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Beware if he ever opens them.
  • Hope Crusher: He takes delight in crushing hopes and inflicting despair (not that you'll see him laugh in joy for it), even his Nightmare Mask is designed to inflict one. When he saw Desparaiah trying to stop being one, he flips.
  • Identical Stranger: In the epilogue of GoGo!, Bunbee has a lazy employee named Shiri who looks like Kawarino.
  • Karmic Death: He was dragged down to hell by Bloody, whom he previously sent to hell after outliving his usefulness.

Voiced by: Kazuko Sugiyama

  • Fountain of Youth: After using the Dream Collet.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: As an apology for all the troubles she caused, she let the Cures and Palmier Kingdom citizens to escape while she stayed in the collapsing Nightmare realm, sealing it.
  • Immortality: What she wants most and why she wants the Dream Collet in the first place. She succeeds in gaining this in the Grand Finale.
  • Irony: For all her desire to 'spread despair', she herself is in despair, as she's really fearful to die of old age, thus sought Immortality. This discovery is what led Nozomi to eventually give her a second chance.
  • Meaningful Name: It looks an awful lot like 'despair', doesn't it?
  • Mook Maker

Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba

The leader of Eternal who is intent on conquering the worlds to add to his collection.

Tropes associated with the Director:

  • All Take and No Give: When Coco gives him a speech about how it's more important to create things instead of taking them, he replies that he has no interest in such a thing, and all that matters is the preservation of his collection.

  • Badass Armfold: He does this when the five Pretty Cures attack him and he just blocks all attacks with a barrier.
  • Barrier Warrior
  • Big Bad: In Yes!5 GoGo!
  • Cool Mask/Cool Helmet
  • Establishing Character Moment: While not exactly in his debut, he makes his case of being a nutjob when he personally pays a visit to Nozomi... then proceeds to level down the entire school area because to him, it has no value, and things without value for him are meant to be destroyed. Thank goodness that it was undone due to No Ontological Inertia.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He couldn't even take hint that Flora rejected him from the Cure Rose Garden because he's trying to use it for his own desires instead of good things.
  • Evil Overlord: Subverted. He is more a museum director than an overlord.
  • It's All About Me: Things of no value are to be destroyed, but he thinks that only he has the right to assign values to anything.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Kind of. He's known to destroy worlds that that he thinks has no values or treasures. If they do, he'll drain the values by taking away its treasures, and once they ran out of values... Boom.
  • One-Winged Angel
  • Orcus on His Throne: His chair even floats. Wherever he moves, he's sitting for almost the whole series.
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Shounen Hair: He looks like a Super Saiyan in his true form.
  • Spam Attack: He can fire Hoshina balls.
  • Sphere of Destruction: A gigantic Hoshina ball.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time.
  • Winged Humanoid: He has a pair of wings, and later two pairs.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Does this to Anacondy, right after she had declared her love to him, no less. And then, the world too. In case he declares this trope to something, his next course of action is... destroy it.
    • In Anacondy's case, the Director is also pissed that she dared sabotage his efforts to get into the Cure Rose Garden, though he couldn't care less about her reasons and feelings. Oh and beforehand, he delivers a straightforward version to Mucardia... right after he reported about Anacondy's sneaky activities.
