Yumehara Nozomi (
Nozomi has purple eyes and shoulder-length dark magenta hair worn down with small amounts pulled into pigtails held by yellow bobbles. Her casual wear in Yes! Pretty Cure 5! GoGo consists of a pale pink puff-sleeved blouse, dark blue knee-length pants and brown shoes. For summer, she switches to a pink top and a short, pale pink vest decorated with ribbons and pom-poms along with a blue skirt and pale pink socks, with the same shoes as before.
In the Yes! Pretty Cure 5! movie, she wears a puffy pink and dark magenta checkered jacket with a fluffy hood, a light blue pleated mini-skirt, navy socks, and pink and white sneakers. In the Yes! Pretty Cure 5! GoGo movie, she wears a frilly pale yellow long-sleeved turtleneck top with a short-sleeved light pink blouse over it. She also wears blue shorts and light brown boots lined with fluff.
As Cure Dream, her hair and eyes brighten, and her hair grows to navel length. Her pigtails turn into large rings held by a yellow butterfly and she gains pink butterfly earrings. She gains a white and fuchsia lined two-piece with matching gloves and socks. Ruffled, pale chiffon trim lines the skirt and sleeves, and on the chest is a pink butterfly with a green gem. On her waist is a bow. She also gains fuchsia shorts and short boots with pink detail. On her hand is a light pink butterfly, and her Pinky Catch is worn on the left wrist.
As Super Cure Dream, her hair becomes lighter and her outfit has additional ruffles and slightly changed accents. She gains a pair of large pink butterfly wings.
In GoGo, her rings are held with yellow ribbons that have a pale pink rose on the front. Her earrings and shorts stay the same. Her outfit becomes a ruffled dress with magenta accenting on the sleeves and lining the pink vest worn over it. The butterfly changes in shape and is now chiffon, with a string connected to the small purse on her right hip. Her boots, socks, and fingerless gloves change in shape.
As Shining Dream, her hair grows out and turns neon pink while her hair accessories change into white wings. Her outfit turns pale pink and magenta with her sleeves, skirt, vest, leg warmers, and boots changing shape. A light pink rose appears on her chest while giant angel-like wings appear on her back. She wears a similar outfit as Rainbow Cure Dream, but her wings are smaller and gold.
As Dream Cure Grace, her hair is longer, gains a lighter gradient, and now has two rings. Her ribbons turn into butterflies with long antennae and her earrings gain green leaves. She wears a puffy-sleeved white dress with two frilly collars, one larger than the other, held by a pale yellow bow with a lavender rose and a green gem. Her skirt resembles large butterfly wings with a light pink design along with yellow dots and magenta hearts. Underneath the skirt are translucent pink and pale pink layers, and in the back is a large light pink butterfly-shaped bow. Her gloves are smaller and white with a pink heart ring, and her boot flaps and stockings change slightly.
Nozomi is a caring individual with a big heart and a bright perspective. While realizing she may not be talented or have any usable skills, she makes up for it by being very friendly and kind towards others, even her enemies. A bit of a late thinker, she sometimes gets distracted; especially when food is involved. She is also childish, loud, and clumsy, and does not seem to make decisions rationally.
As Cure Dream, she is noticeably more serious. She also gains more strength and never hesitates to help others.
Most in her class either thinks of her as strange or a nobody, and as such she does not have many friends, even though she is easy to make friends with. This is made very apparent when Masuko Mika calls Nozomi "little-known".
Natsuki Rin - Best friends since childhood, Nozomi is very close to Rin and they appear to know each other the best out of anyone. While Rin is popular because of her athleticism, she's never stopped being on good terms with her, regardless of how many times Nozomi annoys her with strange ideas. Nozomi admires Rin and it's because of this that she went to request she become a Pretty Cure with her.
Kasugano Urara - Urara is a lot like Nozomi in terms of personality. However, before meeting Nozomi she was always lonely and had no one to spend time with at lunch. Ever since befriending Nozomi, the two have fun together and have a strong friendship. Urara also looks up to Nozomi.
Coco - Nozomi has had a crush on Coco's human form from the first time they met. Coco has taken it upon himself to be her mentor and protector, and they have spent many times together. It's strongly implied that he returns her feelings, offering to dance with her in episode 26, and in episode 24 he says that she should not give up and breaks the mask by calling out to her several times.
Milk - Milk and Nozomi are always in constant disagreements over food, especially chocolate. Milk criticizes Nozomi often because she does not think Nozomi is capable of being a good leader or a good caretaker for her princes, and they usually fight over Coco's attention. However, they begin a friendship later on.
Yumehara (夢原?): Yume (夢?) translates to "dream", obviously referring to her alter ego Cure Dream, and hara (原?) translates to "field", a part which was probably only added to make Yumehara sound like an actual surname, even though it is not one since "hara" is a commonly used component in Japanese family names.
Nozomi (のぞみ?): Translates to "wish; desire; hope". This obviously refers to her roles as the Pretty Cure of Hope, and may also refer to her primary desire of granting Coco's wish to revive the Palmier Kingdom in Yes! Pretty Cure 5.
Her name means "dream-field hope".
Cure Dream: Possibly refers to her dream of being a part of Pretty Cure and of helping to grant Coco's wish, as well as not having any dreams before she gained her powers.
Yes! Pretty Cure 5
Nozomi and Natsuki Rin are childhood best friends. Nozomi is unsure of what she wants to do in life, having tried various clubs at school which ranged from unsuccessful to disastrous results.
On her way to the bus stop one morning, Nozomi is distracted by a passing pink butterfly and chased it into a dark alley. Accidentally bumping into a good-looking guy, she introduced herself to him until he suddenly ran away and disappeared. Later that morning, after publicly embarrassing herself, Nozomi met and introduced herself to Kasugano Urara, offering to help the underclassman if she needed it. After class, Nozomi saw the guy from before going into the school library and immediately followed him. She found him, somewhat, discovering he was really a fluffy animal named Coco, and also found the Dream Collet with him. Then Girinma attacked them, and Nozomi made up her mind to help Coco, summoning the butterfly earlier to get the Pinky Catch and becoming Cure Dream by saying "Pretty Cure Metamorphose!". She fought a monster and destroyed it with Dream AttackYPC501.
Nozomi immediately set about recruiting Rin to join her and was eventually successful when Rin witnessed Cure Dream getting hurt in battleYPC502. The two of them then struggled to figure out what a "Cure of Effervescence" would be. Nozomi, meanwhile, made good on her promise to help Urara, giving her a tour of the schoolYPC503. When Akimoto Komachi and Minazuki Karen revealed that they were investigating Nozomi and her friends' connection to the mysterious incidents that had been happening around the school, Nozomi immediately realized that they were perfect fits for the roles of Cure of Tranquility and Cure of Intelligence, respectively, and convinced Komachi to join themYPC504. Karen, however, presented a problem. It was bad enough that she did not believe the story at first, though some persistence and an attack by Bunbee solved that. However, there was a bigger problem: Karen failed to transform, and insisted that the others not approach her about the matter againYPC505. Nozomi stubbornly refused to change her mind and kept trying to get Karen to try again. After talking to Jiiya, she told Karen that what they had in common was their love for their parents. This seemed to help her, because when Bunbee attacked again, she finally tried to transform again, and was successfulYPC506.
Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!
Some point after saying farewell, Nozomi is writing a letter to Coco, as she misses him. However, she is not sure how to send the letter, though she and the girls meet up with Syrup, who is capable of delivering letters between worlds. He refuses to give Coco her letter but gives her a letter he was sent to give her, which also contained the Rose Pact. They meet a new enemy from a new evil organization, Eternal, but can only run without their powers. However, Coco and Natts arrive and help them to regain the ability to transform, and the Pretty Cure are revived.YPC5GG01
HUGtto! Pretty Cure
Nozomi appeared in HUGtto! Pretty Cure in episode 36, where she encountered Yakushiji Saaya, whose face she recognized from the commercial Saaya starred in. Saaya, who was accompanied by Nono Hana, Tategami Aoi, Kotozume Yukari, and Kenjou Akira, was looking for the Pretty Cure 5 team which Bunbee had previously mentioned. Excited that she had met the girl from the commercials, Nozomi reveals that she's a good friend of Urara's, who sang the song for that said commercial. After that, Nozomi introduces herself to the girls which resulted in her and Hana accidentally hitting each other. Saaya and Yukari can't help but acknowledge how similar these two are. Later, as Doctor Traum summons an Oshimaida, which has previously been defeated, Nozomi transforms into Cure Dream, revealing her identity to her new friends, who soon join her fight. She and Cure Yell join forces to knock down the Oshimaida. However, they realize that the whole world has already been frozen in time - along with their friends all over the world.
Ōinaru kibō no chikara, Kyua Dorīmu!
Cure Dream (キュアドリーム?) is the leader of the group.
On her own, Cure Dream can perform the attack Dream Attack. When her powers get upgraded with the Dream Torch, she uses Crystal Shoot. This indicates that she utilizes the power of crystals. Before the end of the first season, all the five girls can combine their powers and perform the attack Five Explosion.
In the next season, Cure Dream is able to use the attack Shooting Star. With the other four girls and their Cure Fleurets, she can perform Rainbow Rose Explosion and, with Milky Rose at the end of the season, Floral Explosion.
Super Cure Dream
In Yes! Pretty Cure 5: Kagami no Kuni no Miracle Daibouken!, the Cures are nearly defeated by Shadow, but thanks to Migirin and Hidarin, as well as the Miracle Lights, a special power is brought upon the Cures, giving them slightly advanced outfits as well as butterfly wings, colored in their theme colors. Thanks to this, they are able to use a more powerful version of Five Explosion to defeat Shadow and free the Pinkies he took. Milk claims they are Super Pretty Cure, though it is unknown if this is just something she calls them, or if it is a name mentioned in the legends.
Omoi wo sakaseru kiseki no hikari, Shainingu Dorīmu!
Shining Dream (シャイニングドリーム?) is another version of Cure Dream. In Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!: Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday!, Cure Dream gets an upgraded transformation thanks to everyone who cheers on her and the Miracle Light. Her clothes become white, her magenta hair becomes neon pink, and she gets wings and a new Cure Fleuret, the Starlight Fleuret. With this, she is able to use the attack Starlight Solution. The Shining Dream form is never used again after that fight. However, in Pretty Cure All Stars DX 2: Kibou no Hikari - Rainbow Jewel o Mamore!, Cure Dream receives a power-up not unlike that of Shining Dream when becoming Cure Rainbow with the other girls.
Cure Rainbow Dream
Cure Rainbow Dream (キュアレインボードリーム?) is an upgrade Cure Dream gains in Pretty Cure All Stars DX 2: Kibou no Hikari - Rainbow Jewel o Mamore!. Together with the others' upgrades, the group of seventeen girls form the group Cure Rainbow. This upgraded outfit resembles that of Shining Dream from Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!: Okashi no Kuni no Happy Birthday!, except with a pair of small golden wings instead of grand white ones.
Dream Cure Grace
Kasanaru Futatsu no Kibō no Chikara! Dorīmu Kyua Gurēsu!
Dream Cure Grace (ドリームキュアグレース?) is an upgraded form that Cure Dream gains along with Cure Grace in Healin' Good♥Pretty Cure: Yume no Machi de Kyun! tto GoGo! Daihenshin!!.
Pretty Cure Metamorphose - "Pretty Cure Metamorphose!" is the official phrase Nozomi uses to transform into Cure Dream in Yes! Pretty Cure 5 and Yes! Pretty Cure 5 Go Go!.
In Yes! Pretty Cure 5, Nozomi's Pinky Catch opens and she shouts, "Pretty Cure..." Then she makes a circular motion with her arm while shouting, "...metamorphose!" Her body then gets covered in a pink glow. Her top and brooch appear, followed by her arm warmers, skirt, and boots. Her hair lengthens, also gets slightly lighter, and gets styled after that. Finally, her Pinky Catch closes and Cure Dream recites her introductory speech.
In Yes! Pretty Cure 5 Go Go!, her CureMo opens and she presses the buttons while saying, "Pretty Cure metamorphose!" Her CureMo's screen sparkles and pink light surrounds her body. Then appears a pink light with light showing at the end. Nozomi appears with her body covered in pink light. After her arm warmers appear, she curls herself into a ball and when she uncurls herself, she is fully clothed with her hair styled. Cure Dream flies down, then opens her eyes and recites her introductory speech.
- Dream Attack (ドリームアタック?): Cure Dream raises her hand, and as she says the incantation, the butterfly symbol on her left hand shines. The light then flies out from the symbol and, in the shape of a pink butterfly, flies around her once before stopping in front of her. She reaches out with her open hand and pushes the butterfly towards the enemy, causing an explosion upon impact.
- Crystal Shoot (クリスタルシュート?): The light from Cure Dream's butterfly bow shines, whereas the light follows her left arm. When it has reached her fingertips, the Dream Torch appears. Using this, she first spins around, surrounded by fragments of pink light, before pointing it at the enemy. When doing so, the Dream Torch shoots out clusters of pink crystal fragments.
- Shooting Star (シューティングスター?): Cure Dream makes fists with both hands and crosses them in front of her chest, causing a butterfly-shaped emblem to glow in her signature color. Cure Dream spreads her arms apart and goes up into the sky. She then streaks downward and clasps her hands together to form a butterfly shield. The shield hits the target and usually defeats it, while Cure Dream flies through unharmed.
- Five Explosion (ファイブエクスプロージョン?): This is a group attack she performs with the other Cures during Yes! Pretty Cure 5. To perform it, they need the Symphony Set and for Milk's willpower to be at its peak. For this attack, they ram the enlarged set into the enemy to purify it.
- Rainbow Rose Explosion (レインボーローズエクスプロージョン?): This is a group attack she performs with the other Cures during Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo! For it, they need the Cure Fleurets. The attack itself has them summoning roses in their respective theme colors that combine to purify the enemy.
- In episode 38, she and Milky Rose make an extremely similar attack to the "Marble Screw", an attack Cure Black and Cure White performed throughout the Futari wa Pretty Cure series.
- Healin' Good Dream (ヒーリングっど・ドリーム?): An attack Dream performs with Cure Grace as Dream Cure Grace in the Healin' Good movie. To perform it, she needs the Healin' Good Arrow.
