Papillon Rose is the title character, leader of the Papillon Senshi and the secret identity of Tsubomi.
She was the first senshi to awaken by Hikaru Shishio and Rama, and to appear on all versions of the series.
In the original concept, Papillon Rose is described as having the personality of a clumpsy and goofy crybaby.
In the original concepts, Papillon Rose's lingerie consisted of a crimson pink bikini top and thong, along with a white belly cloth tied with a crimson, one-sided back ribbon. The belly cloth connected to a long loin cloth with a golden pattern and a rose printed on it. She wore light pink knee high stockings with pink garterbelts and crimson pink slippers, as well as white gloves and transparent puffy sleeves. Her accessories were heart-shaped ribbon earings, a heart chocker, golden clip holders to the puffy sleeves and crimson ankle clips. Her pigtails also gained a circular design on their roots.
In the OVA, R season and New season concept, her lingerie consisted of a crimson bra with rose patterns tied on a back double-sided ribbon that extended to her ankles. Her thong matched the bra colours and was attached to a long loin cloth that was tied to the back ribbon as well. Her gloves became arm-length with a white ribbon tied on their top with a pink clip-like heart. The stockings and shoes remained the same from the original concepts. Her belly cloth was replaced with an apron that tied on her back. Her accessories were heart-shaped butterfly earings, a chocker matching the apron design and crimson ankle clips.
In the G movie concept, her outfit mostly remained the same, with the exception that the back ribbon became shorter.
In the Rebuild Series, her outfit followed the OVA/R season concept with slight differences. The ankle and glove clips as well as the garterbelts had a frilly crimson design and the central apron has a crimson outline inside the frills.
