Mint Protection (ミントプロテクション Minto Purotekushon?) is Cure Mint's first attack in Yes! Pretty Cure 5. It is the only attack that is capable to protect. However, it is useless to defeat any enemies until it is upgraded to Mint Shield with the Mint Leaf.
Cure Mint crosses her arms with her item in front of her. She raises her arms, producing a green shield to protect anyone inside of it.

Cure Mint: The earth tremors of a young girl's anger, take this! Pretty Cure Mint Protection!
A green light from Cure Mint's butterfly bow shines, whereas the light follows her right arm. When it has reached her fingertips, the Mint Leaf appears. Cure Mint crosses her arms with her item in front of her. She raises her arms, the leaves on her item glow, producing a much stronger shield capable of expanding and crushing the enemy, destroying it.
As shown in Yes! Pretty Cure 5: Kagami no Kuni no Miracle Daibouken!, Cure Mint can fire an energy blast from her shield. And in episode 43, the Mint Shield can also be used as a powerful offensive attack; Cure Mint lets her Mint Leaf floating towards the enemy and creates the Mint Shield in form of a destructive blast which leaves a large crater afterward.
