Ikeda Aya (池田彩 Ikeda Aya?) is a minor character in Heartcatch Pretty Cure!. She is a member of the light music club in school, together with Kudou Mayu. Her character is based on Ikeda Aya, singer of many theme songs within the Pretty Cure franchise.
In the anime, Aya has medium long bright brown hair, with short bangs and two longer strands framing her face. The rest of her hair is tied up into two high twin tails with small yellow hair ties. Her eyes are a bright shade of brown, and she has been seen only in the school's standard uniform for girls.
She and her friend Kudou Mayu have a strong stage fright and are unconfident about their singing skills and they tend to run away instead of singing in front of their schoolmates. However, they are able to overcome their stage fright.
Aya and Kudou Mayu are the singers of the light music club. They should have a live performance during the school festival, but both are too nervous and are afraid that the other students would laugh at them, so they run away. When the members of the fashion club convince them to step onto the stage, the stage fright overcomes the two girls again. Cobraja uses their stage fright, takes their heart flowers and transform their flowers into a Desertrian. After the girls get their heart flowers back, the fashion club and the light music club do together a fashion show with a concert. Aya and Mayu perform their song HEART GOES ON. In the final episodes, Aya and Mayu appear as ones of the survival people, whose heart flowers were saved by the Pretty Cure before.
