Criasu Corporation (クライアス社 Kuraiasu-sha?) is an evil company and the main villains in HUGtto! Pretty Cure. Their goal is to acquire all the Mirai Crystals and extinguish the world's future by freezing time so everyone can have "eternal happiness," according to George Kurai.
Although they have many more employees, most of the season's villains are from the Azababu branch office.
It is not known when the company was founded. The Azababu branch office was established in 2018.
The Criasu Corporation was responsible for taking away Hugtan & Harry's world's future. It was thanks to the White Mirai Crystal that the two escaped. The company is pursuing them to acquire the Crystal.
It was disestablished as of episode 48 when George Kurai was defeated, with its employees being purified by the Cures throughout the season.
As revealed in the new future in episode 49, by going back in time to save her own future, Hugtan prevented Hagukumi City’s time from being stopped along with Criasu Corporation's existence in the original timeline from ever happening to begin with.

- A LINE Stickers set dedicated to the Criasu Corporation was released in 2018.
- Another Criasu employee appears in the Live on Stage shows, a lively young man named Paripino (パリピーノ?) whose looks and personality resemble Charaleet. He even appears in the Criasu LINE Stickers set. Video link to a trailer.
- Perhaps they wanted to use Charaleet as a character but decided to create someone in his likeness instead. Charaleet was already redeemed as a villain by the time the musical live shows were aired.
- Paripino's name probably comes from paripari (パリパリ?), which can mean "energetic", but also "brand-new/high quality (clothing)".
- Out of all the Criasu Corporation staff/employees only Ruru, Daigan, and Listol never become Oshimaidas when confronting the Cures.
- Minus George Kurai, who stayed in the present timeline, Papple, Daigan, and Doctor Traum are the only members who have not become children after returning to the future. This implies that they are the oldest members of the organization.
