* AdaptationDistillation: The intent of this series was to distill the original 90s anime into a much faster-paced, action-oriented adventure more akin to the original manga. The original ''Sailor Moon'' had 127 episodes at the end of ''S''. ''Crystal'' got to the same point at 36 episodes. This means that ''Crystal'' cut out nearly one-third (roughly 29% if you do the math) of the 90s anime.

The original ''Sailor Moon'' had 127 episodes at the end of ''S''. While ''Crystal'' got to mostly follows the same point at 36 episodes. This means that ''Crystal'' cut out nearly one-third (roughly 29% if you do manga closely (and was advertised specifically as a manga adaptation and not a remake of the math) old anime), a number of scenes was still dropped or changed around for various reasons, mostly for the sake of timing. However, since this adaptation lacks the copious {{Filler}} of the 90s anime.version, Season 3 ended up ''stretching'' the story by one episode compared to the manga and moving around some scenes, producing a better story flow than in the first two seasons.

** ''Crystal'' itself had this happen in Season 3 which had a new production team and addressed a lot of the issues with the first two seasons. While the new designs are based on the ones from the previous episodes, they are noticeably rounder and simpler, resulting in much fewer OffModel shots than the previous ones.

** The ToBeContinued insert for the first season also does this, showing off the Cutie Moon Rod before it's introduced in the show proper.



* VocalEvolution: Compare the Japanese voice of Usagi from the original series in 1992 and compare that to the voice now. Playing the role for over 20 years works wonders.

** Still in Act 6, Sailor Moon faints after using her powers too much, and Tuxedo Mask carries her to his home. In the manga, she is still transformed when she wakes up, and detransforms at will, which is consistent with other scenes in that arc, where the senshi remain in uniform even when unconscious. In ''Crystal'', she wakes up in her normal school clothes, despite still wearing the brooch, with no explanation why her transformation was undone.

* AmbiguouslyBi: Usagi is infatuated not only with Tuxedo Mask and Mamoru, but with every single Senshi's looks as well. It's less intense with the Senshi ([[OfficialCouple likely due to it being Mamoru that she ends up with]]), but definitely still there; she even ''follows Rei home'' [[StalkerWithACrush specifically because of how pretty she is]]. There is no confirmation if she's actually bisexual.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Minako - and Makoto and Usagi to a lesser extent - act this way in the third season. She tends to act immature and boy-crazy in her civilian form, but as Senshi she proves being very competent and effective as leader of the Sailor Senshi.

** During the music video for "Moon Pride" as the Senshi are doing their PowerWalk, Mars is the first Senshi to be featured walking alongside Sailor Moon before the others appear, as if in accordance to the bond the two had in the first anime. Mercury is added next, and it is these three walking together before both Jupiter and Venus are included. The shot of the three Senshi together also appears to refer to the first anime, when it was just Moon, Mars, and Mercury for the first half of the Dark Kingdom arc up to Act 25. Said walk is also similar to the one made by the aforementioned first three senshi in the first opening. This may also be a reference to the 90s anime, in the eyecatches of which the order of the Inner Senshi to appear is Mars - Mercury - Venus - Jupiter.

* ClarkKenting: Zig-zagged. In her introduction episode, Rei recognizes Sailor Moon as Usagi, and an episode later Mamoru recognizes a disguised Usagi as Sailor Moon and finds out her real identity. On the other hand, nobody recognizes Usagi as Princess Serenity until she awakens, Chibiusa conveniently does not recognize her parents in school uniforms, and no one at school recognizes the senshi, who do not even wear masks, as their classmates.

** A few, given the way the senshi all meet, but there is a conspicuous ''aversion'' in Act 5 when Nephrite attacks Motoki and Makoto. None of the others are aware of this except for Tuxedo Mask, who then has to run to get Moon and bring her to the scene of the fight.

** Queen Metalia, once she appears on screen, everything starts getting more serious, with the comic relief gradually fading away. [[spoiler: TheReveal about the Shitennou being brainwashed, which unlike in the manga, does have a huge effect on the Senshi, and Mamoru's capture and brainwashing.]]

** The promo materials related to the Black Moon arc feature Chibiusa in her Sailor Chibi Moon costume. In the manga, Chibiusa doesn't become a senshi until near the end of the arc (with her lack of powers being a plot point), and the first anime only introduces her senshi form partway through the third season. Sailor Pluto, whose existence is supposed to be a mystery in-story, even gets prominently shown in the trailer, albeit remaining nameless.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: The Shitennou. In the manga, Jadeite was burnt to death by Sailor Mars's ''Akuryou Taisan'' attack in Act 3, Nephrite suffered a similar fate in Act 5 thanks to Sailor Jupiter's extremely powerful combo of Flower Hurricane and Jupiter Thunderbolt, and Zoisite died to Sailor V's Crescent Boomerang at the end of Act 7. ''Crystal'' recreates these scenes, but has Jadeite and Nephrite teleport away before the Senshi attacks cause enough damage; Zoisite is only slightly scratched and escapes at the beginning of Act 8. [[spoiler:Subverted in ''Crystal'''s version of Act 12, when all four of the Shitennou are killed at the hands of Queen Metalia.]]

* WeAreTeamCannonFodder: Outside of their introductory episodes, the Inner Senshi spend more of their combat time in the first two seasons incapacitated than actively fighting, leaving most of the decisive action to be taken by Sailor Moon. Some of this comes from the manga, but the adaptation also exacerbates the problem both by spending more screen time on the Inners' helplessness and by at least once depicting Sailor Moon delivering a killing blow which in the manga was performed by another senshi.
