Madoka Aguri (円 亜久里 Madoka Aguri?) (or Natalie Miller in the English Dub Glitter Force Doki Doki) is one of the five main Cures in Doki Doki! Pretty Cure.

Aguri's alter ego is Cure Ace (キュアエース Kyua Ēsu?), or Glitter Ace in the Glitter Force Doki Doki Dub.



Within her group, Aguri is the shortest and youngest member. She has burgundy eyes and long brown hair with her bangs pulled back. She normally wears a sleeveless red dress with white stripes around the bottom of the skirt and a white neckline with a ribbon at the center. She also wears magenta sneakers and white socks. During winter, she wears a red jacket with a white collar, along with a black skirt and burgundy boots.

As Cure Ace, Aguri grows taller than the other Cures and she wears pink makeup. Her eyes turn magenta and her thicker, longer hair bright red, worn in one thick curl with two thinner curled segments, forelocks, and bangs brushed aside. She wears a gold pointed hair piece with a winged bow adorned by a heart and white fabric, accenting her gold earrings and necklace. She wears a red and black scalloped dress with white pointed petticoat. Over the dress is a white jacket with red detail lining and pale pink sleeve cuff. On the chest is a gold heart with two, pale pink heart-shaped fabric, while sewn to the back is a large pale pink bow with a cape-like tail. She also gets white feathered wrist pieces with red straps and matching colored knee-length boots.  


Aguri is composed, calm, and wise beyond her young years. She can be strict and expects others to follow the rules, so she can appear to be bossy and accidentally say hurtful things. However, She has an appreciation for good food, most notably sweets; such as a peach roll and Sebastian’s cake, both of which she described in great detail, and how she was a regular of a restaurant ever since being "drawn" in by their anmitsu. 

She is known for speaking elegantly, such as saying "Bravo," when she eats something she thinks tastes good, and "Adieu" when departing.


ManaRikkaAlice, and Makoto: Aguri has respect for them all, as they have respect for her. Aguri also teaches them, the "Five Vows" which a Cure should have.

Ai: Ai a fairy-like baby who summons Aguri’s Cure Loveads to help her transform. Ai is also later revealed to be a part of Princess Marie Ange.

Madoka Mari: Aguri's grandmother. Aguri would do anything to protect her.

Morimoto Eru: Aguri's schoolmate, who she always protects against the bullies that make fun of her for her frizzy hair.

Regina: She is Aguri's rival and technically her sister. The two were destined to fight each other until they decide to team up in order to save their father.

Selfish King/Trump King: Aguri's biological father who was consumed by the evil selfishness and become the Selfish King.


Madoka (?): 円 can mean circle or yen, the latter being the Japanese currency.

Aguri (亜久里?): Aguri is a name from the ancient times of Japan when male children were considered more important than female. It was normally used by parents who had many daughters but no sons, therefore was an incantation towards gods or Buddha, with the intent of having the named daughter be the last female child in the family.

Her dub name Natalie comes from a Late Latin word that means "Christmas day".[1]

Her dub surname, Miller, means somebody who owns or works at a grain mill.[2]


Early Life

Aguri used to be Cure Ace and lived together with Ai in Trump Kingdom. She decided to fight the Selfish King after finding out that he was going to go to Earth too. However, as she fought, she failed, causing her and Ai to separate. After this, Cure Ace went to Earth as a baby. Mari finds her, reverted to the young age of ten. Meanwhile, Ai was imprisoned in an egg.DDPC27

Saving the Cures

After Regina was brainwashed, she started attacking the Cures. The Cures got easily defeated and de-transformed. Then Regina was about to fire her final attack, but Cure Ace's attack stopped it. After this happened, Cure Ace introduced herself much to everyone's shock.DDPC22

Regina and Cure Ace started fighting. After she noticed that Cure Ace had amazing power, Mana started to cry about Regina, who was getting hurt, even though she was evil. Cure Ace then almost purified Regina, with Ace Shot. Regina had exhausted all her power, and could not get up. Bel took her as Mana came to her, Regina blamed Mana for what had happened, which left her upset. When Cure Ace saw Mana crying, she took her Lovead, and told her that she would give it back once Mana learned how to not cry even for a situation like this. Mana became very disappointed as Cure Ace then suddenly left.DDPC23

Revealing Herself

Cure Heart and Cure Ace pair up.

During the festival, Mana, who was taking care of Ai, thought she saw Regina. Mana then started following Regina. Running into an alley Mana then saw that it was just a mirage but behind her, Aguri appeared but did not tell Mana her name. Ai came up to her, and Mana saw how Ai was with her. Aguri then told Mana to watch out because bad things were going to happen to her friends, Mana got surprised. Meanwhile, Leva and Gula had summoned Jikochuus, which were destroying the festival. Makoto, transformed along with Rikka, and Alice, and were fighting, however, they were easily defeated as they were not the same without Mana. Mana heard it and went there with Aguri. Mana, then saw that her friends were badly hurt, and with full courage, Mana started to be brave. Seeing this, Aguri then gave Mana her Lovead back.

Then, Mana transformed into Cure Heart. Suddenly, Aguri with the help of Ai, transformed into Cure Ace. She then paired up with Cure Heart. They started fighting and they easily defeated the Jikochuus. Then Cure Heart purified one of them with, Heart Shoot, while Cure Ace used Ace Shot. Suddenly the two Jikochuus got purified. Leva and Gula left and then Cure Ace told the Cures that they had to be prepared for more of this and quickly left. The Cures got surprised by it.DDPC23

The History of Aguri and Regina Revealed

One year prior to the season, Princess Marie Ange fell ill to a terminal disease. Only the Eternal Golden Crown, one of the Three Sacred Treasures, had the knowledge to save her. However, the crown is being used to imprison the evil sealed away by the legendary Pretty Cure. Desperate to save his daughter, the king of the Trump Kingdom stole the crown but was consumed by the evil and transformed into the Selfish King. Unable to fight her father, Princess Marie Ange broke her heart into two parts. The part that loves her father, her bad side, and the part that wants to protect her people, her good side. Ange's body was then transformed into an egg which would later be born as Ai. The good side of Ange's heart was reborn as Aguri and was sent to earth while the bad side went back to the Selfish King and was reborn as Regina. DDPC45


Shortly after the final battle with Bel, Aguri began to get along with her classmates. She was last seen becoming Cure Ace to stop a satellite from crashing into Oogai Town. DDPC49

"The Trump Card of Love! Cure Ace!"
Ai no kirifuda! Kyua Ēsu!

Cure Ace (キュアエース Kyua Ēsu?) is Aguri's alter ego. Cure Ace represents love. As Cure Ace, Aguri has limited time to be in this form, five minutes at most. Later, by gaining the knowledge of her history from the Eternal Golden Crown, there's no limit for her to stay in this form. In Glitter Force Doki Doki, her introduction is "'A' for absolutely fabulous! I'm Glitter Ace!"


To transform to Cure Ace, Aguri uses the Love Eyes Palette, and the power of Ai, who produces a Lovead to transform. Aguri places her Cure Lovead on it, grabs the make-up stick and taps the Royal Crystals placed on the palette. She creates her eye shadow and the heart in the middle flashes three times and then forms a shape of a golden bow that spins and starts the transformation. Madoka appears in a flash spinning around and growing up a bit, then creating flames that ignite her. Her costume appears from the flames and she introduces herself. She seems to be the only Cure that ages during transformation.


Ace Shot - Her main attack. She needs the Love Kiss Rouge to perform this attack. Depending on the color of lipstick she puts on, the effects of the attack are different.

  • Red - used to purify Jikochuus
  • Purple - used to freeze enemies in place
  • Yellow - used to trap enemies with vines
  • Blue - used to encase enemies in a bubble

Ace Mirror Flash - is Cure Ace secondary individual attack performed with Magical Lovely Pad. It has appeared in episode 32.


Cure Ace Power Up

Like her Cure partners she can Power Up by herself when she takes the battle seriously, this happens when a red light appears around her body.


Aguri's voice actress, Kugimiya Rie, has participated in several image songs for the character she voices. Many of them include duets with Nabatame Hitomi, who voices Aida Mana, Kotobuki Minako who voices Hishikawa Rikka, Fuchigami Mai, who voices Yotsuba Alice, and Miyamoto Kanako, who voices Kenzaki Makoto.
