Namakeruda (ナマケルダ Namakeruda?) is one of the generals of Phantom Empire. He is the first general to be shown attacking the Cures. He ends his sentences with "~desu zo" or "~masu na". He is one of the trio along with Hosshiwa and Oresky.
He is very quiet and polite when speaking to others and enjoys gloomy atmospheres. He never seems to shout or act un-gentlemanly, and even as he talks down to people his words sound kindly. He also appears to be a bit lazy, always leaving the fighting to the Choiarks or the Saiark he summoned. When he gets angry, he quickly snap out of it and find some place to relax.
His form is based on a grasshopper, evident with his overall green color scheme and antennae on his head. He dresses very orderly and has light green hair and small yellow eyes. He is shown carrying a cane with him.
While Queen Mirage is shown with her army, as they cheer for their win, Namakeruda is seen guiding a Saiark, as Cure Princess fights, however Cure Princess quickly gets defeated, and de-transforms, as about to get hit by the Saiark, Cure Fortune appears as she fights the Saiark, and easily wounds it, finishing the Saiark with her attack, Stardust Shoot. Later, Namakeruda leaves, as Cure Fortune does the same thing, but before leaving, she scolds Cure Princess for doing a terrible job.
Later, Namakeruda summons another Saiark from Seiji's sister, while Hime and Megumi had just met each other. After both girls find the Saiark, Hime transforms onto Cure Princess revealing her Pretty Cure form to Megumi, and starts to fight, Cure Princess still is weak and gets defeated quickly, and again about to get hit, but Megumi arrives trying to protect her, as soon as she regains, and feels the power of a Pretty Cure as the crystal which Blue gave to Hime to find her Pretty Cure partner, shines, and transforms into PreCards, and PreChanMirror. With this power, Megumi transforms onto Cure Lovely, and yet tries to battle the Saiark, even though Lovely has no idea how to.HCPC01
His First Defeat
When the Cures at first could not defeat his Saiark, he takes his leave and retreats to a rooftop, where his Saiark continued to spread mold. After Megumi helped Hime regain her confidence, resulting in their partnership, they confront Namakeruda. He still thought that the Cures did not stand a chance and had the Saiark, along with some Choiarks, attack. After a bit of a struggle, Cure Princess uses Blue Happy Shoot to purify the Saiark, which angers and shocks him. HCPC02
Almost Becoming Good
He along with the rest of the trio, confront the Cures during episode 29. He and the trio were almost purified thanks to Starlight Ascension but Deep Mirror intervened before it could be completed.
Like the other commanders, he can trap people into a mirror and create Saiarks. He holds a cane as a weapon, which can shoot beams.
