Nadeshiko Fujisaki (藤咲なでしこ, Fujisaki Nadeshiko) is the female alter ego of Nagihiko Fujisaki.
Nadeshiko is the former Queen's Chair of the Guardians. When Amu rejected the offer to join the Guardians, Nadeshiko tried several tactics to convince Amu to join. The two eventually become best friends and Nadeshiko looks over and supports Amu in her love life. When Amu went to Nadeshiko's house for a sleepover, she also stated that Nadeshiko was really pretty, and that she could dance really well.
The reason that Nagihiko has a female ego is because in the Fujisaki family, boys must cross dress as girls in order for them to learn how to dance. Amu has seen Nadeshiko dance for practice, but has only seen her real performance once in the anime. As Nadeshiko, "she" can pull off as a girl because Nadeshiko had been in the disguise for a long period of time. Tadase, Kukai, Rima, and Dia and their Guardian Characters are the only people who know Nadeshiko's gender secret. He has skipped gym and swimming class, as said in Chapter 8 of the manga, so that his/her identity is more easily protected because of the swimsuit.
His/Her voice actor is Saeko Chiba.
Nadeshiko is very pretty. Amu even said that Nadeshiko was so beautiful that if she were a guy, she would fall in love with her on first sight. She has dark purple hair that is tied up with ribbons with sakura flowers at the ends. When she Character Changes, two sakura blossom-shaped clips appear in her hair and she attacks with a naginata. As the Queen's chair, she wears the red royal cape, skirt, and brown high boots. She was one of the most popular girls when the boys at Seiyo Academy rated the girls.
Nadeshiko practices the art of Japanese dance due to her mother being a teacher. The only times that she has been seen dancing is in Shugo Chara! Episode 9 and Shugo Chara Party! Episode 7. She has also made an official performance once, and has practiced in front of Amu before dancing with Amu. She also seems to excel in domestic skills.

Nadeshiko's first Guardian Character is the elegant, yet fierce-tempered Temari. Being very well-mannered, Temari dislikes having her kimono dirty. But whenever there are bugs or other insects present, or if something goes off, she can be very tempered and actually forces others to finish what has started. Prior to Nadeshiko's return from Europe, she went back to her egg to sleep, the fact that Nadeshiko dropped the confidence of dancing like a girl.

While Nagihiko was in Europe, he dropped the confidence of dancing like a girl and Temari was forced back into her egg, at the same time, Rhythm's egg was born, which he later brings with him back to Japan. When Nagihiko remembers how much he loves basketball in his own rhythm, it hatches into the cool and outgoing Rhythm.
When Nadeshiko undergoes Character Change with Temari, Temari says: Chin! Ton! Shan! Nadeshiko gains two cherry blossom-shaped hair clips in her ribbon and becomes more aggressive, starts "speaking" in Hiroshima slang, and attacks with a naginata.
In the anime, when Nagihiko Character Changes with Rhythm, he gets blue headphones around his neck as an aspect to this change and becomes more sporty and outgoing. He often says "yeah!" and does a thumbs up side ways; but in doing so, also makes him fall way over his head.

When Nagihiko Character Transforms with Rhythm, he becomes an outgoing and athletic character called "Beat Jumper"; a character who is capable of sports and basketball playing. This represents his love for basketball at his own pace.
In Chapter 34 (Episode 98 in the anime) Nagihiko remembers the troubles of being a girl which triggers the reawakening of Temari and they undergo a Character Transformation, becoming "Yamato Maihime", representing "his" love for dancing and how it's his choice for him to dance for his heart's content. Yamato Maihime means "Japanese Dancing Princess". According to many expert Shugo Chara fans, Yamato Maihime is in fact very pretty.
