Momo is one of the recent princesses of the Palmier Kingdom. She is Coco and Nozomi's daughter. Momo is pretty shy and uses to stay with those she knows. She usually doesn't talk to strangers. Not because she doesn't want to, but because she can't. Momo is also a little crybaby, crying over almost everything that happens. But besides these points, she is often described as really cute. Momo tends to say Scary! or I'm scared! (怖い! Kowai!?) and when she's happy or excited she often says "Cute!" (かわいいです！ Kawaī desu!?) or "Sweet!" (スイート！ Suīto!?). She usually ends her sentences with "~momo".
Momo has the ability to transform into a human. She rarely uses this ability at Palmier Kingdom, but as soon as she gets to earth, she has to use it more often. As human, she calls herself Kokoda Momoka (小々田 モモか Kokoda Momoka?).
Momo has also the power to transform into a Pretty Cure. Her Pretty Cure alter ego is called Cure Starlight (キュアスターライト Kyua Sutāraito?), the Pretty Cure of hope.
In her original form, Momo looks like a white bear with dark pruple eyes and a pink ribbon on her left ear.
As Momoka, Momo has light pink hair that pass her shoulders. Like in her original form, Momoka wears a pink ribbon. Momoka's eyes are purple. She wears a dark pink dress with puff sleeves and a skirt that has two layers. The first layer is dark pink, just like the major part of the dress, while the second is white. She wears scarlet shoes and light pink stockings.
As Cure Starlight, her hair turns hot pink and grows longer. A butterfly brooch holds a little twin tail on her right side. She wears a pink choker with a red heart brooch on it. She has a butterfly brooch on her chest. Starlight wears a white dress with puffy sleeves. She wears white gloves with butterfly shaped jewels on it. She wears boots that are half white and half dark pink with purple roses on them. Her eyes are pink.

Cure Starlight - Starlight is the light emitted by stars.
"The light of hope, futre dreams! Cure Starlight!"
Kibō no hikari, mirai no yume! Kyua Sutāraito!
Cure Starlight (キュアスターライト Kyua Sutāraito?) is Momoka's Pretty Cure alter ego. Cure Starlight is the new Cure of hope and holds the power of starlight. Even after transforming into Cure Starlight, Momo is a big coward and would run from every fight. She usually needs someone to encourage her. Otherwise, she would really run away. Cure Starlight is often called the "Pretty Cure of Cure Rose Garden" by other characters.
Starlight Rising - Cure Starlight's first attack. First she summons a pink butterfly from her Cœur Pearl. Then she places it before her and it starts growing. Then she calls "Pretty Cure Starlight Rising!" and pushes the butterfly towards the enemy. The monster is purified by pink sparkles.
Pretty Cure Metamorphose! - Pretty Cure Metamorphose is the tranformation speech that Momo uses to transform into Cure Starlight in SHINE 5 Hearts Pretty Cure!.
First Momo appears in front a pink screen. Then she places the Cœur Pearl on her chest and shouts "Pretty Cure Metamorphose!". Pink glowing butterfly wings appear at her back and her body is covered in hot pink light. First her gloves and her boots appear. On her boots, little purple roses appear and then the butterfly wings cover her body. Shortly after that, she frees herself and the wings burst out in pink glows. Her outfit appeared and her hair changed the color. Then her feet touch the ground and she says her introduction speech.
