Kise Yayoi (黄瀬 やよい Kise Yayoi?) is one of the main Cures in Smile Pretty Cure!. While being a little bit of a crybaby, she is actually quite a strong girl at heart. She is good at sympathizing with others, and will always keep a promise. Although she excels at drawing manga, she has never shown anyone her work due to her shy nature. She is part of the home economics club at school.
Her alter ego is Cure Peace (キュアピース Kyua Pīsu?), and she holds the power of lightning.
She is a shy girl with a big heart. She was first depicting as a crybaby, "crying over the slightest nudge". Though she had a few friends, she mostly kept to her own due to her shy and modest nature. When Miyuki and Akane saw what potential she had in art, they managed to draw a more passionate fire out of her. When their lives were put it danger, she completely shed her baby-ish personality and showed her true strengths.
Now that she's made a few friends, Yayoi has became more outgoing and passionate about being a Pretty Cure, especially the superheroic elements. She is quite bubbly and sweet, and while she may appear as a crybaby, she is actually quite strong when it comes to protecting her friends and making the right decision.
She first met Miyuki when Akane was trying to help Miyuki with her self introduction. She tells Miyuki to not worry, that Akane only did that to help break the ice. Miyuki became more acquainted with Yayoi after catching her sketching a few characters. Seeing what potential she had, Akane and Miyuki insisted she entered the school's poster competition.
Becoming Cure Peace
Yayoi's modest nature got the best of her when she didn't win the poster competition and ripped her poster off the wall. She ran away and broke down crying, where she met Akaoni, who turned everything into a bad ending and turned Yayoi's poster into an Akanbe. Miyuki and Akane transformed, but they used too much power at the start of the fight and became too tired to continue. Yayoi gathered her courage and tried to protect her friends, when a beam of light hits her and she transforms into Cure Peace. However she immediately gets scared and runs from the Akanbe. While she runs with Cure Happy and Cure Sunny, she falls over and starts crying. Her tears release a surge of lightning which Candy says Peace has control over. She finishes the Akanbe off with her attack, Peace Thunder.
In Episode 6, they succeeded in bringing together the Pretty Cures and when asked Candy what to do, Candy was paralyzed and said she don't know shocking everybody. Just then, a book flew in, and like in Episode 1, the book crashes in her face and Pop, Candy's big brother, comes out (and in the right time) to tell the Pretty Cures what their destiny is. He gives the Decor Décor to the girls and showed them the Magical Library. He tells the story about the Bad End Kingdom. In Episode 7, she collected another Cure Decor for Decor Décor. In Episode 8, Miyuki switched her mind with Candy's and the Cures try to make sure Candy doesn't go wrong. At the end of school, they get mad at Candy and she ran away. When they encountered an Akanbe and all of the Cures were stuck, Miyuki transforms in Candy's body into a new Cure, Cure Candy. In Episode 9, it was April Fool's and shows behind her shy personality, she's a great lair and it gives her a chance to lie things. First off, she got lied to by her mom of getting pancakes that makes her get up from bed. She later got back at her and got equal. At school, she was happy for lying to Miyuki at first by telling her that she's exchanging schools. Miyuki and Candy were shocked. When Yayoi got her back turned for a moment to be happy, she got back to them telling them it was a joke, but were gone telling Akane and both have empathy for her moving as it was hard for them to say good-bye when they moved. When Yayoi met them and hear about it, she was scared of losing her friends from her lie imagining what would they say. As soon as the rumor soon spread the classroom prepared a goodbye party for her. So sad, she then cried out of the classroom. Suddenly Akaoni came and brought an Akanbe that beats the Cures by Akaoni lying. The angry Cures were angered, wanting a fair fight and shouted that they hated liars. Akaoni then said that Peace was a liar herself that Peace cried and confessed that she was lying because it was April Fool's and apologized for not telling. The Cures were actually relieved to hear that she's not transferring (blamed Happy for falling for it). Akaoni then got bored and when he lied again, Peace attacked the Akanbe without being tricked and realized that her friends did not get angry at her lie because it didn't hurt them and is getting hurt by his lies. With her renewed energy, Peace then send out a Peace Thunder to purify the Akanbe. After the battle, Yayoi confessed her lie of not transferring that to the classmates that they respond of being relieved and it was okay because it was April Fools, it was a holiday it was okay to lie. Yayoi was now relieved to hear it, but the Cures then did a prank on her by pretending they didn't like the prank she pulled and don't want to be her friend. Yayoi then cried from their joke.
