Characters[edit]

Pretty Cure 5[edit]

Nozomi Yumehara (夢原 のぞみ Yumehara Nozomi?) / Cure Dream (キュアドリーム Kyua Dorīmu?)
Voiced by: Yuuko Sanpei
A second-year student at L'École des Cinq Lumières Institute, Nozomi appears to be a typical shōjo heroine, and does not know what to do with her life. She has no special talent like the other members of PreCure and is clumsy and carefree to a fault, but her cheerful and optimistic demeanor earns her the respect of others. She has a habit of saying "It's decided! (けって〜い! Kettēi!?)" when she decides on something. She becomes Pretty Cure in order to fulfill the promise of Coco's dream, and in turn creates a special bond with him. Influenced by Coco, Nozomi has a crush on him and conceives a notion to be a teacher by degrees. They kissed in Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!: Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday!. Though her teammates are vastly different from her, Nozomi learns how to become their friend. Cure Dream wears pink, and her costume has a design resembling that of Cure Rouge. For catching Pinkies, Coco gets a bell from her Pinky Catch.

Rin Natsuki (夏木 りん Natsuki Rin?) / Cure Rouge (キュアルージュ Kyua Rūju?)
Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi
This second-year student appears as a tomboy and plays enough sports to have every team clamouring for her to join them, but indulges in a few feminine pursuits, such as a love of boys and is scared of ghosts and legends. She has a very straightforward and down-to-earth personality that sharply contrasts with her childhood friend and classmate, Nozomi. Her parents run a flower shop, making her busy of helping parents and nursing younger sister and brother. She felt in question for her future at first, but getting interest in jewellery design after working in Nuts House. Rin wears red, and she transforms into Cure Rouge; her counterpart is her best friend, Cure Dream. For catching Pinkies, Coco gets a trumpet from her Pinky Catch.

Urara is in the first-year and the youngest member. She is a sweet blonde first-year and a transfer student. She is half Japanese and half French. She wants to inherit the dream of her mother, who was a famous actress before passing away, so she engages in the entertainment career. Owing to these complex reasons, she has a mature and realistic personality, leaving her few friends around her. Before she joined the team, she learned of Nozomi's and Rin's identities, and was not nearly as shocked as the others. Cure Lemonade wears yellow and has no counterpart. For catching Pinkies, Coco gets a harp from her Pinky Catch. She has a special bond with Syrup, similar to that of Nozomi and Coco, Komachi and Nuts, and Karen and Milk.

Komachi Akimoto (秋元 こまち Akimoto Komachi?) / Cure Mint (キュアミント Kyua Minto?)
Voiced by: Ai Nagano
In the third-year, Komachi is kind and shy, and likes to read books and write. However, once she is angered enough, she will snap and release her temper. She is a volunteer at the school library, along with Karen/Cure Aqua, and often spends her time there writing stories. Her dream is to become a writer, and she exhibits particular talent in this: Nuts praised her first completed story (upon the 7th revision), and he does not give praise lightly. She has a special bond with Nuts, that develop into romantic feelings, which she expresses in the form of her second novel. Her parents own a traditional Japanese sweetshop. She becomes a Pretty Cure when she acknowledges with Nozomi's thought. For catching Pinkies, Coco gets a flute/piccolo from her Pinky Catch.

Karen Minazuki (水無月 かれん Minazuki Karen?) / Cure Aqua (キュアアクア Kyua Akua?)
Voiced by: Ai Maeda
Karen is Komachi's classmate and best friend, comes from an affluent family and is a member of the student council. Her parents are musicians and often go on tour. She misses them, but will not ask for them to come home for fear of disturbing their work, so despite wealth and popularity, she is often lonely.
Seen around school as cool and inspiring, most of the students look up to her. She, as Nozomi learns, is the most trustworthy Cure. In the beginning, she is reluctant to join the Cure team. In episode 6, as the girls are being manhandled, Karen stands up for her friends, vowing to protect them regardless of transformation. The butterfly that eluded her previously reappears and successfully lands on her wrist, enabling her to transform to Cure Aqua. For catching Pinkies, Coco gets a violin from her Pinky Catch. As Cure Aqua, counterpart of Cure Mint, she wears deep blue in her outfit, resembling Cure Mint's outfit. Like Nozomi and Komachi with Coco and Nuts respectively, she has a special bond with Milk.
She introduces herself as "The Blue Spring of Intelligence, Cure Aqua!" (知性の青き泉、キュアアクア! Chisei no aoki izumi, Kyua Akua!?)

Milk (ミルク Miruku?) / Kurumi Mimino (美々野 くるみ Mimino Kurumi?) / Milky Rose (ミルキィローズ Mirukī Rōzu?)
Voiced by: Eri Sendai
Debuts in episode 21. A white-and-pink lop rabbit who is the royal speaker and chancellor-to-be of the Palmier Kingdom. Milk has long, violet, curly hair and fuchsia eyes. She dresses in violet with blue flower decorations. Over the series Milk and Karen develop a close friendship, beginning when Karen sacrifices herself to protect her. Milk also greatly admires Coco, and is jealous when Nozomi grows closer to him.
She doesn't have a natural ability to take a human form like the princes do, but later gained it after picking up a glowing blue seed in the sequel Yes! PreCure 5 GoGo!. In her human form her alias is Kurumi Mimino; her name backwards has the same pronunciation with Miruku no Mimi (ミルクの耳?), meaning "Milk's ears." At first, she enrolls into Nozomi's class and acts as a mysterious, calm, smart, cool persona to cover her bizarre personality from the princes and Pretty Cures. However, her secret was eventually blown due to that she can't maintain the form after battles.
After gaining the human form, Milk is also able to transform into the Pretty Cure heroine, Milky Rose. She introduces herself as "The Blue Rose is The Mark of Secrets, Milky Rose!" (青いバラは秘密の印、ミルキィローズ! Aoi Bara wa Himitsu no Shirushi, Mirukī Rōzu!?)

Mascots[edit]

Coco (ココ Koko?) / Kouji Kokoda (小々田 コージ Kokoda Kōji?)
Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao
One of the mascot creatures from the Palmier Kingdom, Coco is a yellow-furred tail chipmunk searching for the Dream Collet to restore his kingdom. He can transform into a human, and later becomes a teacher at Nozomi's school to keep watch of her. Coco has expressed that he has strong feelings for Nozomi, but is hesitant to act on them because of the knowledge that they will have to go their separate ways as soon as his kingdom is restored. They kissed in Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!: Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday!. Fittingly, his human name "Kokoda" sounds like the way one would say "I'm Coco" in Japanese. Halfway through the series, it is revealed that he and Nuts are actually princes from separate parts of the Palmier Kingdom.
He is given Palmier's crown in episode 24 of Yes! PreCure 5 GoGo, allowing PreCure 5 to use Cure Fleur. Both he and Nuts combine powers in GoGo episode 38 to allow Cure Dream and Milky Rose to combine powers.
Nuts (ナッツ Nattsu?) / Mr. Natts (夏さん Natsu-san?)
Voiced by: Miyu Irino
The other creature from the Palmier Kingdom, Nuts is a brown squirrel that can transform into a human, the clerk of a jewelry shop called Nuts House. In the beginning of the series, he is sealed within the Dream Collet and was freed after the 5 Cures received their powers. Coco describes him as a good friend, comparable to the relationship between Nozomi and Rin. In Episode 7 Nuts is released from the Dream Collet and is revealed to have an aloof, somewhat cold personality. Because of the events of his past he has difficulty trusting anyone, and did not trust Coco at first. His human form is so good looking that it causes the other Pretty Cure girls to blush, as well as most other girls who see him. Komachi exhibits romantic feelings for Nuts, and though his stoicism does not make him an easy character to read, it is made clear that he feels a special bond with Komachi. Some episodes of the series, as well as a set of character cards, give his human name as "Natts"; however, this is generally accepted as Engrish.
He is given Palmier's crown in episode 31 of Yes! PreCure 5 GoGo, allowing Milky Rose to use the Milky Mirror. Both he and Coco combine powers in GoGo episode 38 to allow Cure Dream and Milky Rose to combine powers.

Syrup has amnesia and forgot who he was, and wanted to find the Cure Rose Garden so he can regain his memories. He develops a bond with Urara like the ones between Nozomi and Coco and Komachi and Nuts.
