The Glitter Force is a magical group of 5 girls that Queen Euphoria enlisted Candy to assemble, in order to keep Emperor Nogo from giving the world an unhappy ending. The Glitter Force consists of five girls, named Emily, (Glitter Lucky) Kelsey, (Glitter Sunny) Lily, (Glitter Peace) April, (Glitter Spring) and Chloe (Glitter Breeze). Together, they fight villains such as Ulric, Brute, Brooha, Rascal, and even Emperor Nogo himself! Their catchphrase is: "Time to blaze away to a happy ending! Shining bright, here comes the Glitter Force!"
The titular characters are a team of magical girls. Their goal is to items called Glitter Charms to revive Queen Euphoria. By placing the Glitter Charms into makeup compacts called Glitter Pacts, they can transform and perform attacks. When transforming into their magical girl form, they apply the compact powder to themselves and shout "Glitter Force Makeover!". Later in the series, as they collect more charms, they attain upgraded transformations such as Tiara Mode, Glitter Princess Mode, and Royal Mode.

Hailing from the Shadow Realm, the villains strive to revive their emperor of evil. The villains crush a paint tube with their hand and wipes it over a magic book page which then manifests negative energy around nearby creatures so that they feel mass despair; the energy is collected into the book and advances a clock-like meter called the "Wheel of Doom" which, when full, revives their emperor of evil, Nogo. They also summon monsters known as Buffoons from ordinary objects.
One of Emperor Nogo's commanders. He resembles the Big Bad Wolf. He often causes mischief with Brute, but can be quite tactical.

The leader of the commanders, and the strongest. He resembles a harlequin or a joker. He often acts weird, often dancing and jumping around, but he actually possesses a great amount of dark energy. He gives the commanders new Buffoon noses, and is strong enough to make the Glitter Shadow Force, evil counterparts of the original Glitter Force.
The main antagonist of the series, he resembles a giant clown. He resides in the Shadow Realm, since the Queen drained his energy, and needs dark energy to be revived again, thus ordered his commanders to do so. He is the living embodiment of all of humanity's negative emotions and desires to bring an unhappy ending to the entire universe.
The monster summoned by the commanders. They are created when a Buffoon nose is combined with any sort of object (e.g. a house or a volleyball), resulting in a giant version of the object with clown features. With the exception of Blue-Nosed Buffoons, they yield at least one Glitter Charm to the Glitter Force when they're defeated.

Small tokens that the Glitter Force has to collect. They contain power of the Queen, and can be either used to revive her or to create a Buffoon.
