Dark Pretty Cure 5 (ダークプリキュア5 Dāku Purikyua Faibu?) is a group of girls who were created by Shadow in Yes! Pretty Cure 5: Kagami no Kuni no Miracle Daibouken!. They are actually the Crystals of the Mirror Kingdom recreated after being fused with the power of each Cure. They all represent the dark selves of Pretty Cure before they could transform.


The first member of Dark Pretty Cure to be created is Dark Dream, Cure Dream's dark self. Dark Dream is sent to the Princess Land to spy on Pretty Cure and the mascots, as well as watch over Higirin and Midarin. When the girls transform and fight against a Kowaina, Shadow acquires the rest of Pretty Cure's powers and creates the rest of the copies.

When Pretty Cure and Shadow meet each other in the Mirror Kingdom, Dark Dream presents herself to the girls before the rest of Dark Pretty Cure come forth. They then all take their counterparts to different mirror locations to fight and kill them. However, while fighting, they encounter the Pretty Cure's light selves that contrasts the negative emotions the Dark Pretty Cure were created from. In the end, Cure Dream decides to spare Dark Dream in order to show her the world's kindness and teach her how to have fun with friends and smile, but the rest of Dark Pretty Cure are killed and return to their original crystal states. When Pretty Cure and Dark Dream meet Shadow again, they watch in horror as Shadow has collected all Pinkies. However, it is revealed that it was a trick and that there is still one Pinky missing; the Pinky that Urara caught earlier. Furious, Shadow tries to kill Cure Dream, but Dark Dream runs in between them, resulting in her crystal bow - her life essence - to be destroyed. She tells Cure Dream that she wishes that they had met in another time, another place, but as she is a fake, it is impossible. As she starts to fade, Dark Dream tells Cure Dream that she still does not know how to smile, but in the end smiles as she disappears.

After Pretty Cure defeated Shadow, the crystals used to create Dark Pretty Cure returned to their original size, and the girls put them back to where they were supposed to stand, reviving the Mirror Kingdom. In the end, Nozomi looks up at the magenta crystal that had once been Dark Dream and is sad to think that she failed to save a true friend. Coco, however, thinks that it was good that Dark Dream met Nozomi, as she therefore was able to smile.

After the credits (shown only in theaters), it shows the Cures seeing the Dark Cures again in Natts House. The DVD version cut out that part.

Dark Pretty Cures


  • Dark Dream (ダークドリーム Dāku Dorīmu?): Cure Dream's dark counterpart. She is Nozomi's past self when she did not know how to be happy with friends. She is annoyed by Cure Dream's enthusiasm and happiness. She was shocked to hear Dream telling her that she has a heart. Even though Cure Dream had the chance to defeat her, she instead befriended and accepted her because she wants her to have friends like how she became friends with the Cures resulting her the only one who survives the battle. However she sacrificed herself to save Cure Dream from Shadow, resulting in her life - the crystal - to shatter. She tells Cure Dream that she did it because she loves her, and dies as she claims that she still does not know how to smile, but in the end disappears while smiling. She was revived (only in theater). When fighting Cure Dream, her dimension is a carnival area.
  • Dark Rouge (ダークルージュ Dāku Rūju?): Cure Rouge's dark counterpart. She is Rin's past self when she thought friends and companions were inconvenient. Although she is shocked when Cure Rouge admits, although it might be stupid of her to value friendship, Dark Rouge turns out to be an even bigger idiot for flaunting her superiority. She is killed with Rouge Burning. She was revived (only in theater). When fighting Cure Rouge, her dimension is an area where there are green, blue, and pink orbs resembling cells.
  • Dark Lemonade (ダークレモネード Dāku Remonēdo?): Cure Lemonade's dark counterpart. She is Urara's past self when she thought more about making herself happy than others. She can use sonic waves by singing, but when Cure Lemonade tells her that songs should be used to make people happy, she is killed with Lemonade Shining. She was revived (only in theater). When fighting Cure Lemonade, her dimension is an area where there are various statues and pillars.
  • Dark Mint (ダークミント Dāku Minto?): Cure Mint's dark counterpart. She is Komachi's past self when she only wanted to protect herself. However, Dark Mint is at loss of words when Cure Mint asks her if she has anything she wants to protect. When her attack is reflected back at her by Mint Shield, she sheds a single tear while dying in Cure Mint's arms. She was revived (only in theater). When fighting Cure Mint, her dimension is an old-style village area.
  • Dark Aqua (ダークアクア Dāku Akua?): Cure Aqua's dark counterpart. She is Karen's past self when she thought she could only trust herself to do things right. She claims she does not need friends, but is in the end moved by Cure Aqua's friendship. Like Cure Aqua, she can create a sword with her powers, but is eventually killed with Aqua Tornado. She was revived (only in theater). When fighting Cure Aqua, her dimension is a nightly meadow with an abnormally sized moon.


  • Darkness Fire (ダークネスファイヤー Dākunesu Faiyā?): Dark Rouge shoots out red laser bullets from her palms. Although unnamed, Dark Dream can use an attack similar to this, as well.
  • Darkness Flash (ダークネスフラッシュ Dākunesu Furasshu?): Dark Lemonade swings her legs to shoot out yellow blades. She can also use it as a protection wall.
  • Darkness Spread (ダークネススプレッド Dākunesu Supureddo?): Dark Mint creates balls of green energy to shoot out. They are able to easily break through Cure Mint's Mint Protection.

While most other attacks aren't named, Dark Dream is able to create an explosion from her palm. Dark Lemonade can sing out sonic waves. Dark Mint can surround herself with power to strengthen herself. Dark Aqua can use an item to be her sword.


  • They are the first cures ever to be listed as villains.
  • Only Dark Aqua is ever explicitly named in dialog, though other materials such as character polls have confirmed that the others' names follow the same pattern.
  • An early piece of promotional art depicted the group in more individualized color schemes - Dark Aqua wore a mostly-blue costume, for instance, while Dark Rouge's clothes were colored nearly identical to Cure Rouge's - but by the time the movie was completed and released, the five all wore black with colored accents, mirroring their heroic counterparts' similarly unified looks.
  • Dark Dream is the only Dark Cure not to be defeated by their good counterpart, she was defeated by Shadow.
  • Unlike other clone Pretty Cure groups, the Dark Pretty Cure 5 have different voice actresses from their good counterpart. Dark Dream shares hers with Aoki Reika (and ironically, Bad End Beauty), and Dark Lemonade shares hers with Madoka Aguri.
  • Dark Aqua shared the same voice actress with Kiriya from Futari wa Pretty Cure and Miura Akira from Heartcatch Pretty Cure!.
  • Dark Pretty Cure 5 are similar to Kamen Rider Ryuga, the main antagonist of the movie for the Tokusatsu series, Kamen Rider Ryuki. They are born in a world of mirrors, and are dark copies of the protagonists they represent.
  • Dark Dream is the only Dark Cure to have a transformation.
  • For some unknown reason, Dark Dream's transformation has fire in it but it is not her power as it is Dark Rouge's power.
  • Dark Pretty Cure 5 are almost the same as the Bad End Pretty Cure from Smile Pretty Cure! in terms of outfits and physical appearances. However, the Dark Pretty Cures differences with the Bad End Pretty Cure is that they still have a heart. Dark Dream protected Cure Dream when she was attacked and Dark Mint cries when she is hugged by Cure Mint. The Bad End Pretty Cure didn't have a heart because they only fight the Pretty Cures until they are defeated.
