Nino Nijiiro (虹色にの) is the deuteragonist of Idol Time PriPara and a sixth grader at Avocado Academy. She is a Pop-type Idol who prefers the brand Neon Drop. She often slurs and abbreviates her greetings to others. She ends her sentences with "ssu".



Nino's normal appearance

Outside of PriPara, Nino has very short, chin-length hair of cyan with several locks of hair sticking up. On each side of her head is a thick lock of hair sticking up reminiscent of horns. She has green eyes and very slightly thick eyebrows. Her bangs are very thin and blend in to the hair surrounding her face, with a single portion sticking out. 

Within PriPara, Nino's hair appears thicker and grows in volume, mostly worn towards the front of her face with three thick locks sticking up on each side. She gains a light green ombre and her bangs are thicker. She is shown having a fanged tooth.


Bright and lively, Nino has an athletic nature. She is very forward with her actions and decisions and believes Idols are "lifeless" and without passion, so she initially wrote them off until she realizes there might be a connection between the goals of an Idol and sports player.
