Prunce (プルンス?) is one of the main mascots for Star☆Twinkle Pretty Cure. He is an alien from the Starry Sky Galaxy who once served the Star Princesses in the Star Palace. He ends his sentences with "~de purunsu" or "~de purunstar".
Prunce is a small light blue octopoid-like alien. He has two antennas that have a yellow star on each tip.
For the majority of time, he is usually seen travelling in his saucer.
Prunce seems to be very cautious, as he used to feel afraid of being discovered on Earth along with him and Lala. He was also uncertain with unfamiliar surroundings on Earth, such as dogs, and examined ordinary items like donuts. However, as the series progresses, he gradually warms up to them. He tends to exaggerate emotionally even over the slightest thing, but despite that, he is loyal to everybody he cares for and loves.
He is also a huge fan of Yuni's space idol persona, Mao, and collects her merchandise like any typical avid fanboy.
- Fuwa - Prunce is close friends with her and also highly protective of her as a brother figure.
- Hagoromo Lala - Prunce and Fuwa met Lala during their escape from the Notraiders, and they became close friends. He is regularly seen accompanying Lala such as clinging himself onto her shoulder, nesting on her head or simply being next to her in many scenes.
- Yuni - Prunce detests her phantom thief alias Blue Cat yet he was oblivious that Mao was also one of her personas. Upon realising the truth, he became downcast. Nonetheless, he has seemingly recovered from his despondency fairly quickly. He also teased Yuni after she first boarded the rocket and joined the other Cures. As the series wears on, he becomes good friends with her.
- Yanyan - An alien he met on the rocket. He gets all flustered whenever she praises him, and will do whatever it takes to impress her, hinting at him having a crush on her. He even melts in joy when Yanyan kisses him.
- Toppa - Prunce is allies with Topper, and both consider allowing the Cures to become part of the Starry Sky Galaxy Association.
He used to serve the Star Princesses before they were attacked by the Notraiders. Being the only guard who vowed to dedicated himself to the Princesses, the Princesses were moved by his loyalty and entrusted him with Fuwa. After escaping with Fuwa by hanging onto a truck on a different planet, he heard a song of Mao's which inspired him to keep going. Sometime later, he and Fuwa encountered Lala, and they journeyed with her in space until they crash-landed on Earth, with Prunce serving as her translator. For the majority of the season, Prunce serves as the girls' companion.
In episode 15, Prunce is originally overjoyed to be able to attend Mao's concert on Planet Zeni, until he realizes that she is also the phantom thief Blue Cat. He decides to relieve his sadness and stress through binge eating donuts with Madoka afterwards.
In episode 26, Prunce and the girls meet Yanyan, a hermit crab alien girl. He begins to develop a crush on her, and even does his best to rescue her when Planet Pururun is under attack in episode 28. He becomes overjoyed and melts into a puddle after Yanyan gives him a grateful kiss before he leaves with the Cures.
In episode 37, Prunce joins the girls in the town's Halloween contest by turning himself into a handsome guy to impress the judges. Sadly, he does not win any awards, leaving him upset.
After Darknest is revealed to be the Ophiuchus Star Princess, Prunce joins force with the Cures and the redeemed Notraiders to fight against her. When Ophiuchus reveals in episode 47 that Fuwa is indeed a vessel of the other Star Princesses' imaginations, Prunce refuses to accept the fact, and is heartbroken when Fuwa sacrifices herself.
In the finale, Prunce officially becomes the main caretaker of the reborn Fuwa after the Cures' final battle with Ophiuchus, and he bids the girls farewell. Fifteen years later, he is seen looking after Fuwa with his parents and Yanyan. He is surprised when Fuwa gradually regains her powers.
Because of his elastic body, he can change his shape into anything and can inflate himself whenever it is necessary. He can even transform into a handsome guy, as seen in episode 37. He is also fluent in speaking human language.
