The Notraiders (ノットレイダー?) are an intergalactic army of space raiders and the main villains in Star☆Twinkle Pretty Cure. Their goal is the domination of the universe by acquiring all the Star Color Princess Pens and capture Fuwa to remove all light from the universe.
In episode 11, it was revealed that they all come from the dark and forgotten parts of the universe.
In episode 21, Aiwarn, who had been one of the commanders of the Notraiders, decided not to return to their headquarters out of shame after Bakenyan, her butler, turned out to be one of Blue Cat's aliases that she used to gain information on Aiwarn after the latter destroyed her home planet of Rainbow, essentially quitting the group to work independently.
In episode 32, it was also revealed that Darknest recruited Garuouga, Kappard, and Tenjo after their planet had been destroyed.
