|Season||Smile Pretty Cure!|
|Relatives||Hino Daigo (father)|

Hino Genki (日野げんき Hino Genki?) is Akane's younger brother, and a minor character in Smile Pretty Cure!. He is a first- year student at Nanairogaoka Middle School and made his first appearance in episode 10.
Genki has short brown hair and dark brown eyes, much like his father Daigo. He stands half a head shorter than Akane, even though he is only one year younger than her.
Like Akane, Genki speaks in the Kansai dialect and loves to joke as well, calling Akane a person who gets carried away too easily and apologizing to the other girls for having to look after her all the time. Despite this, the siblings are united when it comes to the family restaurant, both working hard to cover for their father during his hospitalization stay.
- His voice actress, Shiraishi Ryouko, also voiced Mizushima Aya, a student of Myoudou Academy in Heartcatch Pretty Cure!.
- The word Genki means "happy" or "I'm more than alright!"
- Genki never appears in Glitter Force and is never named due to the omission of episode 10 and removal of a scene with him in it in episode 48. However, Kelsey does mention him in episode 25.
