Pinyakorata (Japanese: ぴにゃこら太), sometimes translated as Piña Colada, is a in-universe fictional character featured in the THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls series. It can be considered the mascot of the Cinderella Girls branch.
Pinyakoratas are large, cat-like creatures with whiskers and a staple accessory. There are three Pinyakoratas so far in the series. The original, primary one is Pinyakorata, who is green and white with an orange bow on its left ear. It can consistently seen in merchandise and promotional material for the Cinderella Girls series. It is voiced by Ayaka Ohashi. Black Pinyakorata is black and grey with a dark grey necktie. It has a small tuft of hair and lines under it's eyes. It is voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi. Pink Pinyakorata is pink with a purple bow on it's right ear. It has long eyelashes and wears pink eye shadow. It is voiced by Nao Touyama.
Pinyakorata first appeared on October 18th, 2013, in Honoka Ayase [Prima Girl] rare card. It was officially named almost a month later on November 13th, 2013, in Miyako Anzai's [Sticking Style] rare card, where the text "...yakorat..." can be seen under the design on her shirt.
Honoka Ayase has a particular affinity for Pinyakorata, having originally won a plush of it in a crane machine. She has a collection of Pinyakorata merchandise and will stop everything if she spots Pinyakorata in public. Though her friends Shinobu Kudo, Yuzu Kitami, and Azuki Momoi seem to think it's very ugly, they have come to understand and respect Honoka's love. These same idols make up the unit Frilled Square, which Pinyakorata is often associated with due to its frequent appearance in the unit member's cards and 4komas.
