Hotaru is missing some animations or character artwork, or the current images are unsatisfactory.

This article focuses on the Pop'n Stage character, Hotaru. If you are looking for the Pop'n Music 18 Sengoku Retsuden TV/Anime license, see Hotaru no Hikari.

Hotaru is one of the characters from Pop'n Stage.


 She's the top star of a famous theater company. Because of this, she's always busy preparing for performances.. Her energetic singing voice has many fans, and tickets sell out quickly.


Hotaru is a peach-skinned girl with light periwinkle eyes and long, wavy brown hair. On her head is a large baby-blue barrette. She wears a red long-sleeved shirt with a white collar, a long knee-length skirt with an apron, and tan-colored boots.

For her 2P color palette, Hotaru is given cerulean hair and blue eyes. Her hat is pink with a red brim. Hotaru's shirt and skirt are indigo while her boots are colored maroon.

Hotaru (ホタル?) translates to "firefly".


  • Both Hotaru and Clara are the fifth set of characters who mimic one-another or appear as someone else; however, Hotaru is given different animations and a different attire in Pop'n Music 5.
