Dark Pretty Cure (ダークプリキュア?) is a major antagonist in Heartcatch Pretty Cure!. She fought Cure Moonlight before the Great Tree of Hearts and succeeds in defeating her HPC01.

She is later seen beside Sabaku whenever a Desert Apostle has to report back to him, acting as his second-in-command. She is desperate to destroy Cure Moonlight once and for all, and has a mysterious connection with her.



Dark Pretty Cure is light-skinned teenager and usually has her left eye closed. She has two colored eyes; the left is gold and the right is blue. Dark Cure wears a short black dress and like Cure Moonlight, she has a black ribbon band with white lace on her left wrist of the other Pretty Cures and a long glove on her right arm. Dark Cure has one black "dragon" wing on her left shoulder. She has dark teal hair in a bob cut that curls up a little, similar to Cure Moonlight's bangs, and has three red spike-like hair clips.


Dark Pretty Cure has an antagonistic rivalry with Cure Moonlight and has a deep conscious of defeating her competition and desperately wants to eliminate Cure Moonlight once and for all. She is mysterious and calm yet deadly in battle.


Tsukikage Yuri: Dark Pretty Cure's relationship with Yuri seems to be the antagonistic sort. It also seems like she has some kind of respect for her, as she accepts Yuri's unspoken request and leavesHPC10. Dark Pretty Cure compares their relationship to the dark side of the moon, that if Yuri is the moon then she is its shadowHPC34. In the finale, it is revealed that Dark Pretty Cure is Yuri's non-biological younger sister.

Sabaku: Sabaku seems to trust Dark Pretty Cure whenever he wants to get something done thoroughly. Because it is unknown if Dark Pretty Cure is a real Cure or not, it is not known if Sabaku is willing to sacrifice her in order to take control of the Tree of Hearts when the rest of Pretty Cure are defeated. Dark Pretty Cure does seem more important to him then the Desert Apostles as shown, when she was injured and unable to fight, Sabaku arrives and takes her away before Cure Moonlight can end their battle. This is because he created her himself, and she is a daughter to him.HPC34

Desert Apostles: Dark Pretty Cure sees the three as her subordinates, something that annoys Sasorina especially.


Before the Tree of Hearts

Dark Pretty Cure is first seen fighting against Cure Moonlight before the Tree of Hearts, telling her that she will die with the Tree of Hearts. They eventually take use of their Flower Tacts, her Dark Tact, and Cure Moonlight's Moon Tact. After being lightly wounded, Dark Pretty Cure succeeds in making Cure Moonlight deform half-way and have the Tree of Hearts wilt, but not die. Cure Moonlight explains that this is because it will never wilt as long as Pretty Cure exist. When she hears this, Dark Pretty Cure prepares herself to use Dark Forte Wave to take Cure Moonlight down, but Cure Moonlight uses her Pretty Cure Seed to protect herself and the two fairies Chypre and Coffret, holding it back long enough for the fairies to escape with two Heart Perfumes. Just then, the Dark Forte Wave manages to destroy the Pretty Cure Seed, and the attack hits Cure Moonlight.HPC01

New Pretty Cure

Throughout the rest of the time afterward, Dark Pretty Cure is seen beside Sabaku in the base of the Desert Apostles, always observing whenever someone comes for an audience. Although she did not give any reactions herself when the news of a new Pretty Cure is revealed, she is told to go and fight them when Sabaku's henchmen continue to lose.HPC10 Using her own status as a Pretty Cure, Dark Pretty Cure attacks innocents known to Tsubomi and Erika in an attempt to ruin the reputation of Cure Blossom and Cure Marine. When the two girls meet Dark Pretty Cure, she captures Chypre and Coffret and orders Tsubomi and Erika to bring her the Heart Pot. Tsubomi and Erika are left with no choice, but with the help of the mysterious guy, the two girls rescue their fairy partners and fight Dark Pretty Cure. The pair are quickly beaten by Dark Pretty Cure, but as Dark Pretty Cure moves in to make the final move, Yuri appears behind Tsubomi and Erika so that only she can see her. Dark Pretty Cure realizes Cure Moonlight survived their last battle and leaves Tsubomi and Erika.HPC10 Her victory caused Tsubomi to lose her confidence for a while afterward.HPC11

Wanting nothing more than to destroy Cure Moonlight, Dark Pretty Cure attacks the train station where Yuri's mother works, attempting to draw Yuri into the battlefield. She succeeds in her aim with Yuri, proving a match for the Snackeys even without the ability to transform into Cure Moonlight. Before Dark Pretty Cure can destroy her, however, the mysterious guy appears again to defend her, and when she is about to track her down once more, Cure Blossom and Marine appears to fight her. When she defeats them once more and about to finish them off, Sabaku orders her to return to their base and to leave Yuri alone.HPC13

Some time later, Sabaku orders Dark Pretty Cure to locate the Tree of Hearts. She succeeds, only to discover a new fairy has been born and it uses its power to escape with the tree.HPC20 Knowing Pretty Cure would go to the tree to repair the barrier, she follows them there. Dark Pretty Cure battles Pretty Cure and manages to fight them off easily, regardless of them now having Cure Sunshine to increase their numbers. However, Cure Blossom, Marine and Sunshine manage to push her far enough away from the tree long enough for Cure Sunshine and Potpourri to repair the barrier. The battle ends with the Tree of Hearts teleporting away with Pretty Cure.HPC24

Return of Cure Moonlight

With Dark Pretty Cure in possession of three quarters of Yuri's Heart Seed, Dark Pretty Cure started to become obsessed with seeing Yuri destroyed. When the Heart Seed begins to glow, Dark Pretty Cure suspects something is about to happen to Yuri and begins a search for her using the Heart Seed as a beacon drawing her closer to Yuri. When the signal stops due to Yuri going to the Great Heart Tree, Dark Pretty Cure begins a battle with Cure Blossom, Marine and Sunshine. She quickly proves they are still not powerful enough to match her power and is ready to finish the fight when light from the Great Heart Tree makes the trees all around glow with light. Yuri appears and transforms into Cure Moonlight once again. The two Cures fight, equally matched. During the battle, Cure Moonlight asks why is Dark Pretty Cure so obsessed with her to which Dark Pretty Cure replies that if Cure Moonlight is the light from the moon than she is the darkness and that only when the darkness devours the light will the moon be one. Using their Fortissimo attacks against each other they fight across the sky until Cure Moonlight manages to score a blow which causes Dark Pretty Cure to fall to the floor in pain and unable to move. Just before Cure Moonlight has a chance to end the battle, Sabaku appears and removes Dark Pretty Cure from the battlefield.


Sabaku had Dark Pretty Cure in a massive orb to help her recover from her loss against Cure Moonlight. He says that it will soon be time for her, a remark which causes her to give an evil grin.HPC41 When the Cures are ready to defeat Cobraja, Dark Pretty Cure appears, catching them off guard. She opens her eyes which are now both gold in color revealing she no longer has heterochromia. This unleashes a massive amount of power from her which easily throws Blossom and the others to the ground. She collects Cobraja and leaves the battle.HPC42

Downfall and Defeat

During the rescue of Kaoruko, Cure Blossom and Cure Moonlight come across Dark Pretty Cure. Cure Moonlight tells Cure Blossom to move on and save Kaoruko. They begin to fight, and, soon after, Professor Sabaku appears. As Cure Moonlight fires a beam at Dark Pretty Cure, Professor Sabaku jumps in front of her and the blow breaks his mask in half, revealing his true identity. Dark Pretty Cure is enraged by the fact that Cure Moonlight hurt him, so she goes in for a full-on attack.

Dark Pretty Cure Dying

After Cure Moonlight recovers from shock, she defeats Dark Pretty Cure with the Floral Power Fortissimo. Dark Pretty Cure falls to the ground, the gemstone on her chest breaking. She hobbles over to the direction of Cure Moonlight, but Professor Sabaku catches her in his arms and tells her that she can rest now. Dark Pretty Cure then fades away into light, but not before smiling and giving the other three quarters of Cure Moonlight's Pretty Cure Seed back.

Powers and Abilities

Dark Pretty Cure appears to be a very formidable opponent, even to Pretty Cure themselves. She is able to generate red shields that are powerful enough to defend herself against Pink Forte Wave with ease. They can also be used offensively, but still with great force. Furthermore, her closed gold eye, once open, seems to have the ability to drastically strengthen her attacks, and can also create violent gusts of winds to throw back the opponent.

With her Dark Tact, she can use Dark Forte Wave and Dark Power Fortissimo. Both attacks seem to be stronger than the Pretty Cure's versions, making her nearly unbeatable. However, Cure Moonlight is able to fight on par with her, and once she regains her Heart Flower, Cure Moonlight can even defeat her.


  • Dark Pretty Cure before her rebirth has two different colored eyes, which is known as complete heterochromia. After her rebirth her eyes were shown to have a blue ring in the center which called central heterochromia.
