Um, after so much styling practice, I've come to the conclusion that it's not merely about having a good appearance, it's... well, it's also about helping people to face everything with a more enthusiastic, positive image!
— Nikki to Kimi, in 5-11 Aim for Best Stylist!

Nikki is the title character and the protagonist of the game. She dresses up in different styles to win stylist battles as she travels across seven different nations with different styles. Momo, a small talking cat, is her sidekick.



Nikki's appearance often changes as a result of her being a stylist who participates in style battles.

Her normal appearance is that of a fair-skinned teenage girl with long pink hair that reaches her waist with navel-length forelocks and straightened bangs that have a small split in the corner. Her warm, gentle eyes are amber with a hint of pink and gold.

Her casual attire consists of a white and pink floral lace dress, white socks, a heart necklace, and pink heart heels.


Pure and very thoughtful, Nikki is a gentle, peaceful, somewhat clumsy girl who has a tendency to attract the attention of others–either because of her sweet nature or her talent. She is very patient and understanding, and often has great fashion advice. However, she appears to be modest and possibly a little less confident than most.



Momo is Nikki's pet cat. Momo is hard on Nikki and often criticizes her, but it is clear that he believes in her and is pushing her to do her best. In return, she cares for him and brings him with her on all of her adventures.


Due to her lively personality and friendly nature, Nikki and Bobo became fast friends. They appear to share a lot in common, such as the fact that they are both romantic people who enjoy weddings.[19]


Lunar is a girl from the Cloud Empire who made friends with Nikki when they met in Wheat Field, Apple. Her guqin design was stolen by Mela of the Iron Rose, and Nikki used her styling skills in order to get it back. Since then, they always made an effort to see each other when they were in the same place at the same time. When Lunar was in trouble, both in Moonlit City and later in Cloud City, Nikki went out of her way to help her and make sure she was okay.


The duo have a friendly rivalry with each other. Kimi views Nikki as a stylist with great potential and encourages her to grow and improve her skill. She becomes one of Nikki's strongest supporters and helps her practice her styling before contests.

It is strongly implied that Kimi has romantic feelings for Nikki. It's said in item descriptions that Kimi prefers Nikki over Joe[20] and that the sight of Nikki makes her blush.[21] During the Swan Love Event's story for Valentine's Day, Nikki and Kimi buy matching pendants that show black and white swans with their necks entwined.[22]

Bai JinjinEdit

It is often noted by others how much they look alike, although they are not related. Nikki cares a lot for her and, when she's almost kidnapped in the Celestial Pavilion, Nikki decides to take her place and helps fend off her attackers.

Yoyo Edit

Nikki and Yoyo care a lot about each other, even though they have disagreements. Yoyo looks out for Nikki, even going out of her way to find someone who damaged clothes Nikki was going to model in a design competition.[23]

While Nikki is in Miraland without her sister, she can't help but think about how much she misses her.[11] She even wishes on a star, hoping that her sister and father were okay without her.[9]

Yoyo also stole Nikki's clothing once on a trip to London, England.[24]

Mother Edit

Nikki clearly loves and admires her mother. As a child, her mother dressed her up in princess dresses, causing other girls to be jealous of Nikki.[10] She also saved up money from a part-time job in order to buy a scarf for her mother,[25] and she thought her mother was beautiful.[26]
