Tomoka Fukumoto (福本ともか Fukumoto Tomoka) is one of the main Cures in Fairytale Pretty Cure!. She is a shy, yet kind-hearted and intelligent 14-year-old girl. She is a second-year student at Minwa Academy and Vice President of the Student Council alongside Masato Kashima, her childhood friend and secret crush. She is called the "Ice Witch" at school, mistakenly considered cold and intimidating but is actually highly sensitive and insecure. She has a habit of saying "So embarassing!" (恥ずかしいです! Hazukashīdesu!) when she gets overwhelmed or anxious.
Tomoka’s alter ego is Cure Mythical (キュアミシカル Kyua Mishikaru) the Pretty Cure of Wisdom.
Tomoka is an average, pale-skinned girl with shoulder-length indigo hair styled into ringlets. Light blue eyes with round, black thick-framed glasses and noticeably thick eyebrows. Her summer outfit consists of a breezy aqua-blue poncho, orchid-purple floral-pattern mini dress, and white high-heeled sandals. Her winter outfit consists of a lilac long-sleeved shirt with a turtleneck, blue v-neck tank top over top, pale teal jean vest, black skirt, and midnight blue flats.
She wears her Minwa Academy school uniform with the blue second-year neckerchief, black tights, and black penny loafers.
As Cure Mythical, her hair becomes lilac and much longer; elbow-length in a braided ponytail and tied into low pigtails down the shoulders adorned with white wings. Sky blue puffed sleeved shirt that fall down her shoulder detailed with yellow and pale blue, light yellow Chelsea collar with a single blue stripe, sky blue sweetheart neckline tube top, short blue skirt, black tights, knee-length dark blue heel-boots with ruffles on the ends, and golden star-shaped earrings.
Before the start of the series, Tomoka was just growing out her hair and her bangs were in her eyes.
At first glance, Tomoka seems like any other rich girl with a cold and intimidating aura to match her silver spoon intelligence. However, with Tomoka, you would be wrong. In reality, Tomoka struggles in most social situations and is extremely socially awkward to the point that she has troubles expressing herself and making new friends. She is very self-conscious, sensitive, and anxious girl who is prone to have fits of embarrassment when caught off guard.
But, once Tomoka comes out of her shell, she proves to be modest, soft-hearted, loyal, and a bit of a helpless romantic.
Once becoming a Pretty Cure, Tomoka proves to be the voice of reason on her team and most mature in handling the stress of battle. She understands the importance of working together as a team and can at times be a bit headstrong, as she won’t hesitate to call out one of her friends if she feels they are in the wrong. Tomoka has grown to become more forthright with herself and her feelings and opinion without feeling insecure.
Meeting Bukku and Becoming Cure Mythical
Tomoka's lowerclassman and "Club Flunk" Imari Suzukawa knocks into her. They both lose their book bags in the fall and accidentally get each other's bag. Even Tomoka gets home, she is beyond surprised to see a fairy named Bukku pops out. When Tomoka searches through Imari's bag, she finds her PreHeartBook and the fairy prince reveals that Imari is in danger without the power in the book to defend herself. Tomoka and Bukku jump into one of her limousines to go find Imari before it was too late. Tomoka reveals that she understands how important the situation. That Bukku cares for Imari like she cares for her older brother. Suddenly, an Endingu attacks the limo. Linda appears and informs Bukku that she had transformed Imari into an Endingu Puppet. As the Endingu Fable tries to capture, Tomoka jumps in to save him and unlocks her PreHeartBook. She transforms into Cure Mythical, the Story of Wisdom.
Losing the Ability to Become Cure Mythical
After she first became a Pretty Cure, Tomoka is in a sense of denial that all of it actually happened and that Imari was Cure Fable. She and considers it to be a dream until she finds her PreHeartBook inside her book bag. Once she gets to school, she gets an even bigger wake-up call when Imari shows up to school with Bukku completely visional; claiming him to be a stuffed animal. But, as Imari tries to act all buddy-buddy with Tomoka, her childhood friend, Masato Kashima, cuts in and puts Imari in her place. Trouble into ensues when fellow classmate, Tsubaki Nīmi, stands up for Imari and starts to argue with Masato. Things go from bad to worse when one of the Dark Charm Knights appears and attacks the school with an Endingu. While Imari transforms into Cure Fable, Tomoka is too afraid and does not. When Cure Fable is in a pinch and begs for Tomoka's help. At the same time, Masato is ordering her to come into the school where it's same. In a moment of fear and pressure to make a decision, Tomoka decides to go with Masato. She only comes to regret this decision, but when she tries to transform and save Cure Fable, the PreHeartBook refuses her. Tomoka realizes that she had lost the ability to become Cure Mythical.
Becomes Cure Mythical Again
Tomoka becomes depressed after losing her ability to become a Pretty Cure and loses the confidence to believe in herself. She hears that Imari had become over to her house with a box of cakes to try and mend their friendship, but she kicked out by her father, Moriki.

Without the power to transform, Tomoka runs away and is chased by one of the Dark Charm Knights. When she is cornered, Bukku tells her that everything would be alright and that he would protect her. At that moment, Tomoka realizes that even though she doesn't believe in herself, she could still put faith in others and decides to put all her faith in what Imari and Bukku believe. Along with that, she also finds something worth protecting; a family's love. Her PreHeartBook unlocks and Tomoka becomes Cure Mythical once again.
