Papple (パップル Pappuru?) is a former villain from HUGtto! Pretty Cure. She is a woman who works for the Criasu Corporation as section chief in the Azababu branch office. She is purified by Cure Macherie and Cure Amour in episode 22.

Appearance

Papple wears a short low cut purple dress with cutouts on the sides, fishnet stockings, and stiletto heels. Over it she wears a long black coat that's red on the inside and has a fur collar. She wears a gold necklace, earrings and bracelets. She also carries a feather-trimmed fan that she uses to gesture and attack. She has green eyes and medium-length dark blue hair styled into a large wave on top, with purple streaks in it. She also wears noticeable makeup.

When she temporarily becomes a Cure in episode 48, her dress covers her body more with fluffy trim along her skirt, jacket sleeves, and collar. The back of her skirt has a long furry train while the trim on her fan is thicker.

History

Personality

In her initial appearance, Papple was a coquettish and pushy woman who maintained an energetic and bubbly facade. She was also quite nasty and unsympathetic even to her colleagues, especially towards Ruru whom she regarded as a "mechanical doll".

Nonetheless, deep inside her heart, she desperately yearns for love and was extremely grief-stricken after realizing George cheated on her. Fortunately, after her purification, she is now more friendly towards the Cures despite still having a bit of her temper intact.

Abilities

Like her other colleagues, she calls forth a victim's Prickly Powerer with the words "Hope for tomorrow, begone! Negative Wave!" (明日への希望よ消えろ!ネガティブウェーブ! Asu e no kibō yo kiero! Negatibu Uēbu!?). She can then turn this power into an Oshimaida with the words "I'm ordering you! Oshimaida!" (発注!オシマイダー! Hacchū! Oshimaidā!?).

She can also use her fan as a weapon, using it to defeat multiple Mou-Oshimaida in episode 47, and can also defend herself with it.

Relationships

  • Listol, Daigan - Her superiors at Criasu.
  • Charaleet - One of her colleagues at Criasu. She saw him as a good-for-nothing boy who kept failing because he didn’t follow company protocol. She later hired him as a member of her talent agency after she was purified.
  • Ruru Amour - Another colleague. In episode 7, she tried to form a bond with Ruru, only for Ruru to fail to understand love. When Ruru joined the Cures, she viewed Ruru as a traitor. After Cure Amour and Cure Macherie purified her, she finally accepted her in episode 22.
  • Aisaki Emiru - She used to belittle Emiru for being friends with Ruru, but later accepted Emiru after she and Ruru purified her in episode 22.
  • Gelos - Her junior and rival at Criasu. Papple left Criasu after discovering her boyfriend having an affair with Gelos, which Gelos cruelly mocked her for.
  • George Kurai - Her ex-boyfriend boss at Criasu. She often referred to him dearly, until Papple caught him cheating on her with Gelos.

Etymology

"Papple" (パップル Pappuru?) is most likely a play on "bubble" (バブル baburu?), a reference to the era she's from (see trivia item below).

Trivia

  • Papple's flashy style and peculiar speech are stereotypical of rich young women from the so-called "Bubble" era (about 1986-1991).
    • In keeping with this, the taxi she uses for transportation appears to be a Toyota Crown Comfort (a popular model for taxis) from the same period, and the portable phone she uses to summon her Oshimaidas is a late '80s type.
  • Papple shares her voice actress with Amanogawa Stella from Go! Princess Pretty Cure.
