Miden (ミデン?) is a cloth-like entity and the main antagonist in this movie called HUGtto! Pretty Cure♡Futari wa Pretty Cure: All Stars Memories. He’s actually a forgotten old camera that bears a grudge for being neglected, turning him into his current form.
Miden is a monstrous creature, featuring a body that has elongated arms in a cloth-like body, but its true form is a camera. Whenever he uses a certain Cure's attack or recalls their memories, his colour scheme changes to that of the Cure he is copying.
Miden is described as a character who has a special ability to steal the Pretty Cures' memories and to copy their catchphrases (for example, Nagisa's "Bucchake Arienai!") and attacks. The Cures soon learn that he went around stealing their memories because he didn't have any good ones of his own, so he took theirs so he could have those kinds of memories.
Powers and Abilities
He can fly, change anyone into a baby by stealing their memories for himself, and when fighting the Pretty Cures he can summon an army of black mini-versions of himself to hold the Cures off while he makes a getaway. When he had most of the Cures' memories, he was able to use some of their attacks, such as Shiny Luminous' Heartiel Action and Cure Whip's Whip Decoration among others. To absorb their memories and change them into babies, his eyes become red and he fires a bright blue beam at his target.
- Miden's name is taken from the brand of camera that it inhabited.
- Miden's concept resembles a tsukumogami, which are objects that in time end up possessing a spirit, according to Japanese folklore.
- Additionally, characters have noted that Miden’s physical appearance resembles a teru teru bōzu, a Japanese talisman in the form of a doll made of white cloth. It is thought that hanging one up would bring good weather.
- Miden is similar in concept to Clarinet, the main villain of Doki Doki! Pretty Cure: Mana Kekkon!!? Mirai ni Tsunagu Kibō no Dress who was actually a sentient clarinet.
