Mint is a young girl who also happens to be the princess of the world of dreams and magic. The natural environment of her world is only a reflection of the dreams of the people on Earth. It is now in danger as people lose faith in their dreams and let darkness enter their hearts; this is causing the environment of Mint's world to wither and die.
On her 12th. birthday, after a gala celebration with her father the King and her mother Queen Lime, she agrees to go to the world of humans to try to preserve people's hopes and dreams, and to prove that she has the qualities necessary to be a wise ruler. However, when Mint discovers that all of the flowers of the rainbow garden are blue (the color of sadness), she knows her task will not be an easy one.
Mint's father arranges for her to stay with his sister, Mint's Aunt Herb, who runs a gift shop on Earth called "Happy Shop". Mint is also allowed to choose two best friends who will share the secret of her true identity. She chooses a young boy named Plum and a young girl named Nut, because when she arrives on Earth, she realizes her father forgot to give her her aunt's address, and they help her find the shop. Her pet parrot Waffle goes with her as her mascot and to try to keep her out of trouble.
- Voiced by Hiroko Kasahara. Mint is a 12-year-old princess from Fairy Land and is attending school in the human world. She was born on August 16, 24721 (Magical Era). She's 4 feet 10 inches (1.47 m) tall. She has a kind heart and a gentle personality. She's somewhat of a tomboy and full of energy. She can be selfish at times, though, and she has no sense of direction. Her accessories include the Mint Stick (her magic wand), Mint Compact (which is attached to her arm that turns into her wand and arrow), Mint Arrow (which changes her clothes just like Minky Momo), Star Accessory Earrings, and Star Necklace. Her incantation is, "Parieru Remurin Sweet Mint."
- Mint has an insatiable appetite, and can often be seen eating hamburgers and fries about anytime during the day, even in the morning. In between meals, she is often eating cookies and just about any other food she can find.
