Rainbow! Pretty Cure

  • Red Fire Shine (レッドファイヤーシャイン Reddo Faiyā Shain?) is her individual attack, who is shown to be powerful, though it is weak when it comes to bigger, and stronger Kurokages.
  • Shining Soul (シャイニングソウル Shainingu Sōru?) is not much of an attack, but it is only used to enter the person's soul, to destroy its inner shadow. The attack is not just used by her, but also her friends. On specific times, Cure Red also concludes the word, "Fire ( Hi?)" in the front of the phrase.
    • Flame Burst (フレイムバースト Fureimu Bāsuto?) is the phrase, and attack in order to defeat the inner shadow within the person's soul. Though, if the attack doesn't work, and goes wrong, the Catch would say "Mis-mis-take..." and Cure Red would suddenly leave the person's soul, and de-transform.

Miracle Heart! Pretty Cure



  • Colorful Catch (カラフルなキャッチ Karafuruna Kyatchi?) is the important item she uses so she could transform into a Cure. When activated, it says, Color-color (カラー-カラー Karā-karā?). Thus, the Catch has a limitless power, and it causes Akari to run out of energy. If Cure Red runs out of power, the Catch could say "Mis-mis-take.." and de-activate, resulting on Cure Red to de-transform. Once the Catch runs out of power, the only the way to get power on it, is to not transform for a specific amount of time.

  • Since we making up catchphrases, I will say mine: With the power of love, which will melt you away....I am Cure Red! (我々は標語を構成するので、私は私が言うだろう:あなたを離れて溶けて、愛の力で....私はキュアレッドです! Wareware wa hyōgo o kōsei surunode, watashi wa watashi ga iudarou: Anata o hanarete tokete, ai no chikara de.... Watashi wa Kyua Reddo!?)

  • I can find hope for you. (私が缶あなたの希望を見つける。 Watashi ga kan anata no kibō o mitsukeru.?)
    • Akari's words after finding out about Midori's past.


Tachibana Chou

"Together forever.
―Chou, asking if Akari is still her friend, and in response, Akari tells her yes

After meeting when they were children, the girls got along again after Akari moved again in the town. They first met while playing on a playground, which was their remarkable place, as they visited it many times. The girls are mainly opposites, as Chou is boyish, has no interest on being a Cure, but she claims she is one because she wants to protect people, other than being opposites, they also have different choises, as when it comes to clothes, food. Though still, the girls keep a close relationship, no matter where they are.

Ki Maemi

"Akari-chan is the sweetest, and kindest person living in my life! She turned me into an outgoing person, not like back then, when I was trapped in a shell!"
―Maemi, referring to Akari

Though being shy, Akari befriends Maemi, and cares for her a lot, much to her parents' worries. Other than that, Maemi says, that her heart warms up, everytime Akari, and more people befriend her.

Takiyama Midori

"Consider them rivals....they just can't keep up their feelings when together."
―Chou, telling Maemi, and Aoi about Midori, and Akari

Akari, and Midori are basiclly enemies in someway, and the girls often call them "arch-rivals". Akari, though tries to befriend her, Midori always declines causing the girls to always be put on action, and come up with something. Later, when the girls find the truth, the girls try to get close, and help her with her life.

Mizu Aoi

"Did you ever notice we don't look the same, we are just plain opposites, but eventually there is a point when we just are the same?"
―Aoi, asking Akari when seeing the Maemi, Miori, and Chou fighting with each other

Though, Akari, and Aoi are propper opposites, by their atitude, clothes. The girls agree the most.


After their first encounter, and Akari learning about magic, Akari seems to get her annoyed at times, as she asks a lot. Kora always tries to get people to smile, and tries her best, at winning the soul, though they always get into a fight, Kora always seems to find the way getting out of it.

Akane Gentaro

Though being a stict father, Akari inspires him, and gets highly motivated by him.

Akane Emi

She is an open woman, who has an bright spirit, and Akari claims her as the "positive source" mainly if it comes to friends. Though, she is kind at times, when it comes to Akari being late for school, Emi is sometimes annoyed.


Akane (あかね) means "Red" or "Deep Red which is her theme color.
Akari (あかり) means "Light" which gives her the personality of being bright.

  • Her name means, "Deep Red Light".

Throughout the series, the girls, and other characters have put different nicknames for Akari.

  • Akaaka (赤赤 Akaaka?, lit.bright red) is the nickname which Chou uses sometimes to Akari, if she is mostly talking out loud, or acts cheerful. Aka means red, a color which is Akari's favorite, and main color, while the other aka, comes from akarui, which means bright.
  • Yuujin (友人 Yūjin?, lit.friend) is the minor nickname which Maemi used it briefly on Akari, when on her past life. Maemi once used it when she tried to help her at once, and when people were joking at her.
  • Akarin (あかりん Akarin?) is the nickname, Midori always uses on Akari. One reason that Midori uses this nickame, is because when Midori talks way fast, she misspells Akari's name onto adding a "n" though sounding "Akarin". The second reason why Midori might use this nickname is that akarin comes half from Akari's name, and the part "rin" means cause, and if considered as half, Akarin means red cause.
  • Shuryou (首領 Shuryō?, lit.leader) is the nickname which Aoi uses instead of Cure Red in battles, though being loyal, she has used this nickname on Akari on times when being the leader.
  • Hayakuchi (早口 Hayakuchi?, talk) is the minor nickname which Midori's roommate used for Akari when talking to Midori. He made it up as hayakuchi meaning "fast talk" because the first time he met her, Akari began to talk fast, as he could not understand anything from her.
