Five new butterflies have been born and from those butterflies come five crystals which each hold one baby girl. These girls however, will grow up to learn that they were reborn from being girls who once had dark souls and were defeated rather terribly.
Fourteen years later, Yumeno Ayumu awakes from a strange dream of two pink haired girls fighting each other in front of a Ferris Wheel. On her why back to her house, she meets Mariposa, a strange fairy like butterfly who tells her to look for her other half but is forced to transform into Cure Wish when a denizen of Incubus appears. On her adventure to find her "other half", she is joined by four other girls who also have "other halves" to find. Join Ayumu and her friends as we dive back into the world of Pretty Cure 5 but with a twist!

She is a friendly girl who is always full of happiness. She always puts others before herself and is quite the klutz. After the dream she has in episode 1, she can't help but wonder who was the girl she had been fighting. She hates the thought of being evil, which is ironic since her past self was Dark Dream. Her alias is Cure Wish, the Pretty Cure of Hope.

- Daichi Tsubaki (大地つばき Daichi Tsubaki?)/ Cure Emerald (キュアエメラルド Kyua Emerarudo?): Tsubaki is a second year student at L'École des Cinq Lumières who is very wary around strangers. She loves dancing, hence why she is in the dancing club, and she can be quite protective of people she loves. She loves the environment and will do anything to make sure flowers bloom. Her alias is Cure Emerald, the Pretty Cure of Tranquility and her past alias was Dark Mint.
- Kaito Mizuki (海東みずき Kaitō Mizuki?)/ Cure Aquamarine (キュアアクアマリン Kyua Akuamarin?): Mizuki is a calm and collected third year student at L'École des Cinq Lumières who can be quite shy.

- Magiro (マギロ Magiro?): Yorune's protector and the second member of Incubus to appear. He is very protective of Yorune and seems to know something about Yorune that no one else knows. He rather quiet and prefers sticking to battling the Cures himself. He is greatly threatened of "The General" and his monster form is that of a Heron.

Forms/ Power Ups for Pretty Cure
- Regular Form (レギュラーフォーム Regyurā Fōmu?): This is the form that the girls are seen in for the first time to fight against Incubus. It is not as strong as their Dark Forms and the girls only use this form when fighting against a weak enemy.
- Dark Forms (ダークフォーム Dāku Fōmu?): The form that they unlock when the girls remember their past lives. This form resembles their Dark Pretty Cure forms from their past, in which their outfits are black and on their gloves and boots, is a crystal in their respective theme color as well as on their chest, is a butterfly bow, also in their respective theme color. Their skirts also have their respective theme colors as well as their bike shorts.
