The main character of the Nikki-based games. She's a highschool student from Earth who has a huge talent and love of clothing and fashion, which makes her the ideal candidate to help the world of Miraland recover its stability. She travels around with her cat Momo and her friend Bobo, and as she does so she sees that the world she's been brought to is actually far more complex than she believed it to be...
- A Friend in Need: Nikki will never leave anyone who needs help alone. She will always, always try to help friends and strangers alike.
- Break the Cutie: The plot of the game started getting more complicated from Chapter 12 onwards, and whe Chapter 15 hit Nikki found herself completely unprepared for the increasingly war between the Northern Kingdom and the Cloud Empire, the death of someone as important as her Cool Big Sis Lunar in front of her and the realization that Miraland is closer to a Crapsaccharine World than to a Mary Suetopia. It takes her a short while and the encouragement of several others to pick herself off the ground.
- The Hero: As the Player Character (of sorts), she's the character who moves the action.
- Miss Fanservice: Though Momo often calls her flatchested, she actualy has bigger boobs than her sprite would suggest, and even without considering that she has rather long and cute legs. Plus many of the Fashion Shows she's involved into require her to dress up in sexy clothes so she can match her Hotter and Sexier rivals (i.e., Mela, Dansu, Mira, etc.).
- Naive Everygirl: Nikki is very naive, and as such she sometimes has difficulties to deal with harsher realities. She does her best to adapt herself, though.
- Nice Girl: She's always very sweet, kind and gentle.
- Ordinary High School Student: She seems to be highschool aged, and in one of the mangas she was even spirited to Miraland when she was at school!
- Plucky Girl: Even when she's at her lowest, she does her best to try bringing herself back. It's best seen in Chapter 15: even after Lunar has fallen, and even when she knows how near impossible to defeat her Hero-Killer of a rival is, she keeps confronting him on what he had done, and once she gets her hands on the Dawnblade sword brought by the Iron Roses she does manage to defeat him.
- Rose Haired Sweetie: Her natural hair is pink, but in a subversion she can obtain many different-colored wigs for her styling use.
- Trapped in Another World: After being summoned by Nanari, she and Momo must travel through Miraland to both help fix the continent's troubles and see if they can eventually go back home.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Which bites her in the ass badly in Chapter 15, as she can barely handle the upcoming war and the death of Lunar in battle at first.
Nikki's talking pet cat, which apparently has always been able to speak. One of his ancestors is a cat that somehow came from Miraland to Earth and told his descendants stories about his lands. Momo also is brought to Miraland itself when Nanari summons Nikki to aid the continent, and keeps traveling with her.
The first friend that Nikki makes in Miraland. A cheerful college student who pretty much appoints herself as Nikki's guide through her new world and its nations. She's revealed to be The Mole, albeit for quite tragic reasons: her father was killed by a secret organization, which keeps her mother alive but as their prisoner. This is because Bobo either has what seems to be an all-mighty Super-Powered Evil Side, or is the Soul Jar for an all-mighty spirit...
