Hino Akane (日野 あかね Hino Akane?) is one of the main Cures in Smile Pretty Cure!. An unusually passionate girl, she is able to get into any mood easily and loves to make others laugh. Her family runs an okonomiyaki restaurant, and she often helps out there. In school, she is part of the volleyball team. She was born in Osaka and thus speaks in the Kansai dialect, like Tarte from Fresh Pretty Cure!.
Her alter ego is Cure Sunny (キュアサニー Kyua Sanī?). She controls the element of Fire.
