Natts (ナッツ Nattsu?) is one of the princes from the Palmier, a squirrel that can transform into a human who is the clerk of a jewelry shop called Natts House. In the beginning of the series, he was sealed within the Dream Collet, and the only way to get out is if Pretty Cure used their powers. Although Natts cannot do much in the human world, he is properly able to fight using his tail in his real form, though mostly uses this when he is annoyed at Coco.
Coco describes him as a good friend, comparable to the relationship between Nozomi and Rin. Natts is usually serious and distrustful, almost the completely opposite from his best friend Coco. Because of his past, he uses time to get close to people. However, he has often shown to be extremely stubborn, not wanting help from people when facing problems.YPC516 Natts also believes that the truth is always the best, and thus never lies about anything if possible. This is shown when he bluntly tells Komachi that her book is bad, and also when, rather than lying, he uses his good look and tells Masuko Mika to just not go deep into the case of Pretty Cure. Because of this belief, it is hard for him to apologize or say things he does not mean, because his simple logic is different from others'. However, Coco also tells Natts that a part of his character is that he feels bad if hurting someone's feelings regardless of his beliefs.
Yes! Pretty Cure 5
Opening the Gate
Natts is the reason the Nightmares managed to infiltrate the Palmier Kingdom. When he was on guard, he saw a hurt creature and tried to help it, but as he opened the passage, the creature was revealed to be from the evil side, and as he had opened the door, other monsters came inside and invaded the kingdom. Depressed and angry, Natts blamed himself and lost his trust to people before he and Coco were forced to escape.YPC507
In order to keep the Dream Collet safe, he and Coco ran away and to the human world. There, while being chased by Hadenya, Natts shielded Coco from her attack, and they together fell down the cliff, Natts trying to take as much damage as possible from his friend while the Dream Collet lost all the Pinkies. Because of his heavy injuries, the Dream Collet took Natts inside of it and disappeared, leaving Coco alone and lost in the human world.YPC531
Pretty Cure and Natts House
After the start of the show, Natts' existence is not revealed before the second episode, when Coco says that he, like Yumehara Nozomi, has a best friend, and that he has to find the others of Pretty Cure in order to release him from the Dream Collet. Though Coco describes their friendship like the one of Nozomi and her best friend, Natsuki Rin, when Natts is finally released from the Dream Collet he has already lost his trust in people, including his best friend's judgment. Still wishing for his kingdom's survival, however, he teaches Pretty Cure how to use the Dream Collet to collect the caught Pinkies.
After Cure Dream defends him from one of the Nightmares when said Nightmare reveals Natts' sins from the past, Natts decides to trust the girls if even a little, though excuses this to Coco by saying that, as the Nightmares are stubborn people, he has to choice. He shows his new trust by cleaning their new secret base, making it the jewelry shop Natts House, and giving Pretty Cure cases for their Pinky Catches when they are not using them.YPC507 Once again, he proves his trust in Pretty Cure by helping them keep their secret from Masuko Mika, who tries to use them for a scoop. Using his look, he manages to make tomorrow's article all about him, leaving only a small image-less corner for Pretty Cure.YPC509
Although it seems like things are going to be fine, Natts gets problems when his shop gets no customers, and he is unable to get money for food. When Coco offers him some food, he refuses, as he does not like taking charity. After not eating for two days, Natts eventually collapses and deforms into mascot form in front of Pretty Cure and Coco. After explaining his situation, they gives him some sweets from Komachi's family's shop, and Natts promises to pay her back as soon as he has the money, though Komachi tells him it is all right. For the rest of the day and the day afterward, the girls try to find a way to help Natts get customers, but it is not until Komachi suggests fliers that it actually begins to work. After a hard battle against a fellow starver, the Nightmare Gamao, Natts coincidentally gives a flier to Mika, who once again uses a whole article about him and his shop, leading the shop to be filled with girls from the school. Thanks to this, Natts Shop becomes fanciable, and Natts is capable of feeding for himself.YPC510
Bonding with Pretty Cure
While Natts is reading, Komachi comes with the novel she is writing and asks him to read it and tell her his thoughts. He agrees to do it, but does not think the book is good and tries to give her constructive criticism about it but this hurts Komachi's feelings and prompts her to quit writing. Natts is conflicted whether or not to keep his honesty-policy or apologize, so he visits her house after her older sister, Akimoto Madoka visits to give him sweets on Komachi's request. Once he gets there he ends up criticizing her even more for giving up her dream so easily, but they are soon interrupted by the rest of Pretty Cure and Coco, who happen to be spying on them, and then a Nightmare appears and transports the group into Komachi's book. When Pretty Cure is about to lose(while stuck in the book), Natts tells Komachi to stand up and not let someone screw around with her novel. When they eventually manage to win the battle Natts encourages Komachi in continuing writing, as the novel still has some good parts that just need to be polished properly. Although the other girls make fun of him for his failed attempt to apologize, but Komachi thanks him and asks him if he will help her to become a better author to which Natts accepts.YPC516
As time passes, Natts grows closer to the girls, and eventually trusts them to the fullest, but tries not to show it. He often does his best to help the girls when fighting, but mostly just gives them advice whenever he feels like the girls need it in their normal lives.YPC511
Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!
Both Natts and Coco are now the new kings of the Palmier Kingdom. He is given Palmier's crown in episode 31, allowing Milky Rose to use the Milky Note and Milky Mirror. Both he and Coco can combine powers to allow Cure Dream and Milky Rose to combine powers.YPC5GG38
Like Coco, Natts can transform into a human form which he uses when in public to those who do not know his identity, going by the alias Mr. Natsu (夏さん Natsu-san?), though Masuko Mika calls uses the honorific "-sama" (様) (Basically a more formal form of "Mr.", or "Master"). He goes as the clerk of the jewelry shop called Natts House. Natsu's looks are so good that most females fall for him and this has been shown several times in the series, sometimes for comedic effect.YPC517 Unlike Natts' mascot form, Natsu hardly ever smiles nor laughs, and is mostly seen in control of his feelings.
Natts is able to be in this form as long as he would like, but he prefers staying in mascot form as it is very tiring for him to stay in human form. It should also be noted that he transforms back into mascot form easily, just like Coco. Natsu is always careful with his actions, though will not question it if he has to save those who knows his secret.
- Coco: Natts' best friend and fellow prince of the Palmier Kingdom is Coco. When talking to Nozomi about Natts, Coco compares their friendship with that between her and Rin, and also adds that they fight as much as they become friends again.YPC502 However, when Natts is released from the Dream Collet, they have a hard time communicating, as Natts has lost his trust in others.YPC507 In the end, they get along better, and when Natts is in danger or is weak, Coco is usually the one to care the most. Sometimes, they get awkward when Natts is jealous of Coco, as shown in Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo! when Natts is unable to help Pretty Cure in their fights.
- Akimoto Komachi: At the beginning, Natts views Komachi just as useless as the rest of Pretty Cure, but as the series goes on, he begins to form a special bond with Komachi, similar to the bond Yumehara Nozomi, Kasugano Urara and Minazuki Karen have with Coco, Syrup and Milk respectively. However, these feelings are hardly ever shown, and thus it is mostly Komachi who shows her affection to him, though it is highly possible that he catches her hints even if he does not show it. In the end, he entrusts her with the key he always carries around his neck, before he leaves to go back to Palmier.YPC549 Natts' relationship with Komachi is also often hinted in merchandise such as cards and other images, where he is often seen together with Komachi, or in the introduction part of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!: Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday!, where Cure Natts' outfit uses the same trademarks as Cure Mint.
As we all know, Natts can be able to transform into a human like (some of) the Mascots in Yes! Pretty Cure 5 and take the name of Mr. Natsu.
In Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!, Natts is able to use the power of his Palmier Crown to summon the Milky Note and the Milky Mirror for Milky Rose.
In a part of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo! Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday, he, along with Coco, jokingly uses the power of the Miracle Lights to transform into Cure Natts (キュアナッツ Kyua Nattsu?) who, along with Cure Coco, forms the duo Coconuts. It's unknown if he has the same powers Coco had when he was brainwashed (ex. combat moves and blasting energy spheres). It possible because Natts was wearing the clothes Coco wore when brainwashed during the ending theme.
Natsu: Natts' human name was not official until Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo! Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday. This name is a pun to his real name, as it is pronounced almost the same in Japanese. It uses the kanji for summer (夏 Natsu?).
