* OverlyLongName: Her real name is Princess Usagi Small Lady Serenity Tsukino (we don't know what possessed Usagi into giving her such a name). She liked the nickname Chibi-Usa so much, she added ''that'' to it as well.

* OverlyLongName: Her real name and full title is Princess Usagi Small Lady Serenity Tsukino (we don't know what possessed Usagi into giving her such a name). She liked the nickname Chibi-Usa so much, she added ''that'' to it as well. When she arrives in the present, she introduces herself as "Usagi" despite everyone in the future calling her "Small Lady" and she's registered at school as "Usagi Tsukino" much like her mother, though it's unknown if Tsukino actually part of her name, if her dad's family name is her legal in the future or if she even has one at all. (If it is part of her name, it would be Princess Usagi "Chibi-Usa" Small Lady Serenity Tsukino).
**It's established that when she eventually grows up, she drops the small part of her titles becoming "Princess Usagi Lady Serenity"

* ShooOutTheClowns: After the backlash against Chibi-Usa in ''[=SuperS=]'', her role was reduced substantially towards the end of the season and is gone by the time ''Sailor Stars'' rolls around.

** In the manga and ''Crystal'', on the other hand, it's implied that she has a slight crush on King Endymion [[UnrequitedTragicMaiden but can't reveal her feelings under any circumstances]] for obvious reasons.

The (first set of) [[SeraMyu Musicals]] canonize this, giving her a duet with Queen Beryl over their shared unrequited feelings, Onna no Ronsou. (Women's Depute)

* AmazonBrigade: Franchise/SailorMoon and her Sailor Senshi, the MagicalGirlWarrior rulers of their respective celestial bodies, as well as ''many'' EvilCounterpart teams with parallel power sets that double as DarkMagicalGirl {{Quirky Miniboss Squad}}s for their respective arc BigBad, whether the Black Moon family's Ayakashi Sisters, the Death Busters' Witches 5, the Dead Moon Circus' Amazoness Quartet, or Shadow Galactica's Sailor Animamates. ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' even references it in the ThemeSong: "We're not weak girls/Who need men's protection"
* BadassAdorable: Pretty Soldiers/Senshi by name. Particularly [[WideEyedIdealist Usagi/Moon]], [[ShrinkingViolet Ami/Mercury]], and [[MysteriousWaif Hotaru/Saturn]].
* BadassCrew: The Guardian Senshi and the Outer Senshi function as examples of these in their own right, though all ten of the Solar System Senshi can be considered one when they actually manage to work together (e.g. in the [=SuperS=] movie).
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: While honour and duty would have made the Senshi loyal to her anyway this seems to be the major reason that the Sailor Senshi are so willing to put their lives on the line for Usagi. Each of the Senshi were alone or in pain in some way but Usagi gave them each love and affection and gave them the friendship they always wanted. It's summed up best by Rei in the R movie:

** [[StepfordSmiler Minako]] had been fighting youma as Sailor V a year before the Sailor Senshi, without any help. So much of her time was taken up by saving the world, she lost the friends she used to have. On top of that, the first youma she'd killed was her crush. At the end of C:SV, she learned that [[spoiler:Kaitou Ace, her one true love]] was a member of the Dark Kingdom, and [[spoiler:Minako chose to kill him with her own hand, breaking her own heart in the process]]. As if that wasn't painful enough, she learned of the fall of the Moon Kingdom in the past lives of the Senshi, and as the Senshi' leader, she came to blame herself for the fall.In the anime, she moved to England, and lived with an older woman named Katarina and a man named Alan, whom she'd fallen in love with. While fighting crime as Sailor V, she gets wounded by a grenade, and witnesses Alan and Katarina fall into each other's arms, thinking that the two of them had fallen in love (really, they thought Minako had died and were embracing out of despair). She left England with a broken heart. Not only was she ignored by her peers for not spending any time with them, she was outright bullied by them as she heard them say that she was a childish weirdo who "liked to play Sailor V".

** [[ApocalypseMaiden Hotaru]] lost her mother in a lab accident, and was herself fatally wounded. Her father made a DealWithTheDevil with Master Pharaoh 90 to make Hotaru a [[BodyHorror cyborg]] (manga) or heal her in exchange of both of them being possessed (anime) so that she could survive. As a result, Hotaru's father became a villain himself. Hotaru grew up as a frail IllGirl who was scorned by her peers because of her HealingHands, which people found weird. Also, she was being hunted by the Outer Senshi because of her status as an ApocalypseMaiden. Chibi-Usa was pretty much the first friend she'd ever had, which is a shame because she's [[{{Moe}} really freaking cute.]]

* ElementalPowers: The assignment of magical powers and Senshi names comes from a mix of European and Chinese astrology and alchemy that sometimes seems almost random. Mercury gets fresh-water ice powers from Asian symbolism, while Neptune gets ocean-themed water powers from Western. Mars as Fire may have to do with the fact that in Japanese, Mars is "Kasei" (literally Fire Star or Fire Planet). Meanwhile, Jupiter gets powers from both sides, with an elemental affiliation to Wood that shows up in later seasons and manga issues, but she started out with lightning powers from her Roman god namesake. Venus has an easily missed Metal affiliation with her "Love-Me Chain". Neptune gets ocean-themed water powers because of the Japanese word for Neptune: "Sea king star/planet". Same goes for Uranus ("Sky king star") and Pluto ("Dark ruler star"). Saturn's meaning might be a bit more obscure ("Soil star") but it's related to the whole idea of dying, while Sailor Moon is her opposite (rebirth) in the S arc.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: According to the manga, not only Usagi but ALL of the other Sailor Senshi were princesses of their planets during the Silver Millennium so this applies to all of them. Whether this trope is valid outside of the manga is up to debate.

The trope no longer applies in the present day, however, due to all of the Senshi being reincarnated on the Earth as humans.

Haruka/Uranus can be like an AloofAlly and Michiru/Neptune like a LovableAlphaBitch to the Senshi as a whole, but her and Michiru together are more like a TomboyAndGirlyGirl team. Setsuna/Pluto is usually alone but also acts like a CoolBigSis to all the Scouts. Hotaru/Saturn is a MysteriousWaif who sometimes acts like TheSixthRanger and other time more like a time-bomb.

"''Senshi of Love and Justice, the pretty sailor suited soldier in training, Sailor Chibi Moon! In the name of the future moon, I'll punish you!''"

Usagi and Mamoru's bratty KidFromTheFuture who travels to the 20th century to steal Usagi's Silver Crystal in order to save the 30th century. She takes after her mother in most ways and generally behaves like an odd sort of AnnoyingYoungerSibling to her, but underneath the constant bickering and whining, it's apparent that the two really do care about each other. After departing for the future at the end of the second season, she returns for the third and fourth, this time a few years older and on a peaceful mission to train as a Sailor Senshi.

By ''[=SuperS=]'', however, she was WiseBeyondHerYears to the point of being more mature than the other Senshi, her friends, and even ''adult'' characters-of-the-day.

** Unbelievable, but true. It's usually mistaken for her trying to help her fellow Senshi, but the ''Exam Battles'' specials showed her being particularly aggressive in trying to force the others into studying and ''really'' happy when she mistook the MonsterOfTheWeek for the boy who regularly matched her grades, as it meant she had an excuse to ''[[SeriousBusiness murder him]]'' ([[DeadpanSnarker Minako promptly declared she wouldn't study hard to avoid being murdered by her]]).

Also, in PGSM, she [[spoiler:turns into a DarkMagicalGirl because she felt unneeded by the Senshi, and nearly killed Sailor Moon]].

* CovertPervert: While she's involved in very few romantic subplots of her own, she's always very aware of everyone else's, and when most of the Guardian Senshi are perplexed and put off by Haruka and Michiru's relationship, she completely understands what's going on. Also, there's a famous scene where, when they see Seiya wearing only a towel, she can be seen peeking through her hands.

** Also to Haruka, which is explored in the Nehellenia arc of the Stars season. While Ami is the brains of the Guardian Senshi, and insists on studying an enemy before attacking, Haruka is the brawn of the Outer Senshi, and tries to plow through hordes of enemies with brute force. Ami is ladylike, gentle, idealistic, insecure, and wants to be liked by others, while Haruka is tomboyish, gruff, cynical enough to think that a horrible sacrifice is necessary to preserve peace, appears very confident, and genuinely does not care whether others accept her or not.

"''Senshi of Flame and Passion, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor Mars! In the name of Mars, I will chastise you!''"

A shrine maiden at Hikawa Shrine who possesses potent psychic abilities in addition to her powers as a Sailor Senshi. Her personality varies wildly from one adaptation to the next, but in all versions she's a dedicated fighter and one of Usagi's closest friends, despite the occasional animosity between the two.

* AdaptationalJerkass: She is an AloofDarkHairedGirl in the manga, but in the first anime adaptation, she is HotBlooded and often picks fights with Usagi. Rei is very prone to insult Usagi, much more than the other way around and in many cases without provocation or reason other than teasing Usagi. Despite their bickering, they're still the closest of the Senshi (in the manga Rei is closer to Minako than Usagi). The [=DiC=] dub takes this a step further. Rei is made even meaner to Usagi, losing almost every little hint of [[FireForgedFriends strong companionship]] they have in the original version.

* ArcherArchetype: Rei fits this very well in the manga. She is slender, [[LadyOfWar elegant]], smart, [[TheStoic stoic]], accustomed to being alone, and from the [[{{Ojou}} upper class]]. While she [[HotBlooded isn't anywhere]] [[{{Tsundere}} near as stoic]] in the 90s anime, and she isn't stated to come from a wealthy family, it is made clear that she initially had no respect for Usagi as a fellow Senshi.

* CharacterDevelopment: Due to her past with her father Rei starts off most adaptations of Sailor Moon very emotionally reserved and, at times, seems to barely tolerate the other Senshi' presence especially Usagi. Due to spending so much time with them she eventually mellows out, becoming a lot more open and kinder with her friends, and a lot more respectful of Usagi as a result (even if she still frustrates her at time to time).

** To Usagi in the '90s anime. While Rei is a complete {{workaholic}}, Usagi is lazy. Rei instantly takes to her role as a Senshi, while Usagi spends several episodes struggling to fight. While Rei initially covets Usagi’s position as leader, and needs to feel control of everything, Usagi shies away from leadership. While Rei’s athleticism is commented upon (and is only second to Makoto in a strength test shown in opening of the S movie), Usagi sucks at sports (except for Frisbee). Rei has a wide range of talents (singing, organizing a school festival, composing music, modelling, skiing, fire-reading, and ESP among others), while Usagi has relatively few skills. Rei pretends she is infallible, while Usagi can admit that she has many faults. While Rei is reluctant to show affection, often tries to do everything herself, and keeps her problems to herself, Usagi is openly affectionate, and believes in relying on friends to help you through problems. While Rei toughens Usagi up, teaches her to show bravery in the face of adversity, and forces her to take her responsibilities seriously, Usagi encourages Rei to cut loose from time to time, allow herself to accept help, and show others affection.

** In the 90s anime and the live-action. She is just as heroic, self-sacrificing, and steadfastly dedicated to defending the world and Princess Serenity as any other Sailor Senshi, if not moreso. She is also good at giving advice to her fellow Senshi, and listening to their problems. That being said, she is bossy, conceited, hypercritical, enjoys ridiculing Usagi (and sometimes the other Senshi), treats [[HopelessSuitor Yuuichirou]] like crap despite his generosity towards her, and even made a little girl who idolized her cry.
** In the live-action, she is empathetic and more gentle with children, but is antisocial and initially refuses to work alongside her fellow Senshi, which angers Makoto.

** It's also worth pointing out that, while she can be harsh to Usagi at times, the fact is that their job is actually very dangerous and Usagi needs to be ready when/if the rest of the Senshi die and Usagi may have to fight on her own. [[spoiler:Lo and behold Rei turns out to be right as, in the 90's anime, the entire Senshi die twice forcing Usagi to fight the FinalBattle alone.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She is sarcastic and has a HairTriggerTemper, and can be quite mean to Usagi in the first season of the 90s anime, but she's a well-meaning nice girl underneath it all. It's worth pointing out that her bickering with Usagi is not one-sided, and the two tend to give as much as they take when arguing. That said, the 90s anime makes it clear that Rei and Usagi understand each other the best out of all the Guardian Senshi, and Rei is frequently the most horrified whenever Usagi is hurt or dies. And vice versa.

* LovableAlphaBitch: Arguably, she is popular at her school, and she does act kind-of snobby and mean towards the other Senshi, particularly Usagi and Ami. But she is actually nice to her classmates, and then she becomes nicer (though still HotBlooded) to the Senshi. The manga, live-action show and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' avert this, as she is more distant than actually mean, and is actually shown to be an outcast because of her psychic powers.

* ProudBeauty: In the 90s anime, Rei knows that her looks are admired by many, many people, and she boasts about her beauty many times. In one [=SuperS=] episode, she got front cover of a magazine for her beauty and she basked in all the attention she got, and even rubbed it in the faces of the other Senshi.

* ToughLove: Rei can be very rough around the edges when it comes to Usagi and, at times, can seem overly harsh and critical. However Rei wants Usagi to take their Senshi duties seriously and she knows that, due to the dangerous nature of their work, Usagi needs to be toughened up and ready in case of the worst case scenario.

** A very present trait of hers in the 90s anime. In an early episode, she still attended to her Senshi duties despite being down with a bad cold. In the R season, she organized an entire school festival for herself on her own, and was shown slaving over composing lyrics in frustration. At the end of that episode, and in a flashback in the R movie, Usagi marvels over Rei’s intense work ethic. An episode in the S season shows her staying up many nights doing fire-readings to discover the meaning of her prophetic dreams, forgoing sleep and food entirely, which leaves her visibly haggard over time.

Often seen pining for her old ''[[SempaiKohai sempai]]'', who rejected her in the days before she transferred to Usagi and Ami's school.

* AdaptationalBadass: While she is still the strongest, largest, and most skilled in hand-to-hand combat of the Guardian-senshis in the manga, she's basically a street brawler with no formal training (as she's shown losing to Haruka in a friendly Judo match). In the 90s anime she is legitimately a practitioner of Japanese martial arts and is shown practice katas, breaking bricks, and other exercises associated with higher belt levels and even exhibits some actual techniques from time to time including in her civilian form against Youmas. In addition when she went into a quick scuffle with Haruka out of rage, Haruka may have won but she walked away holding her wrist in pain from one of Makoto's blows that she blocked and admitted Makoto's so strong she's possibly an equal.

She also destroyed multiple youma without Usagi's help, and attacked Nehellenia herself, while the other Senshi were tag-teaming against Nehellenia's mirror images. She is also often the first Senshi to attack a monster.

She is also a HugeSchoolgirl with a (likely undeserved) reputation as a brawler.

* CannotTellALie: 90s Anime Makoto is so earnest it means she's ''horrible'' when it comes to subterfuge and easily the worst liar of all the Guardian Senshi. This is best exemplified when the girls need to protect Usagi's identity from Kaolinite, so they have Minako dress up as Sailor Moon. All Makoto can do is awkwardly, and loudly, declare that Rei's proclamation that Usagi is too much of a clumsy crybaby to ever be a Sailor Senshi is true.

She's frequently the first to be defeated by new villains, and in several instances she's reduced to jobbing for other senshi; Minako takes her out with one kick when she's brainwashed by Dark Endymion during the manga/Crystal version of the Dark Kingdom arc, and Haruka gets a one-move takedown of her early in the Infinity arc.

* TheDreaded: In both the anime and manga, the Dark Kingdom has given indications of being utterly ''terrified'' of Sailor Venus. Her first appearance in both mediums consisting in a BigDamnHeroes where she saves the lives of the other Sailor Senshi and kicks the ass of one or two Shitennou helps the viewers understand why.

** Anime: she's the active Senshi for the most time, stops bank robbers in her free time and single-handedly freed London from Dark Kingdom monsters (where the other Senshi were nearly killed many times, once being saved by Venus who had just returned from London). Comes second season and we find out that Sailor Venus has apparently been overshadowed by Sailor Moon and forgotten. It didn't help that her Sailor V persona was presumed dead after one mission back in London.

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Minako does ''not'' need to become Sailor Venus to lay the smack down, in all continuities. In the manga, Minako kicks the brainwashed Makoto across the room, and can use the FlashStep. The anime shows Minako RoofHopping without transforming; outrunning a ''car'' after getting her Pure Heart Crystal extracted (anyone else, up and including the other Sailor Senshi, fainted instantly after that, although the massive quantity of energy drinks Minako had just consumed also probably had something to do with it); and reversing a poor zombified victim's hold on her by kicking his face in mid-flip while in school uniform. And the live action shows Minako kicking a monster into a ''concrete column'', scaring away the other monster.

* FallenPrincess: In the manga, while not much of an AlphaBitch, Minako was implied to be a rather popular athlete at her school; enough to rally up all of her classmates to visit a sick friend. Then, her work as Sailor V began, slowly taking up the time that she could be using to have a social life. Eventually, she loses all of her old friends, becoming a loner. She ends up finding [[TrueCompanions new ones]] in [[AllLovingHero Usagi]] and the {{Loner Turned Friend}}s that the Guardian Senshi are.

One of her attacks is even the "Venus Love and Beauty Shock", in which she [[KissOfDeath blows a kiss]] to deliver a heart-shaped projectile.

* HiddenDepths: She can be very silly at times but is the most experienced Sailor Senshi and can speak near-perfect English. Also, much of her happy-go-lucky persona is a put-on façade to hide the pain she feels over the sacrifices she'd made for the sake of her mission.
* HotBlooded: In the manga, she's the most proactive of the Senshi. In her own words, "[[{{Determinator}} giving up are the words]][[PluckyGirl [she] hates the most!]]". It's most prevalent in Codename: Sailor V, as she dials it down a bit from there.

In the manga, she [[spoiler:killed her true love after learning that he was a part of the Dark Kingdom]], realizing she’d always pick duty over love, something she’d constantly sought after. In the '90s anime her social life fell apart because of how much of her time was taken up by being Sailor V; she watched her big sister figure fall in love with the guy she liked and decided [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy their happiness was more important than hers]]. Unlike the other Senshi, she had no allies other than Artemis to support her for quite a while after awakening. Even after having met the rest of the Senshi, she still struggles with feeling like she's given up her own happiness for the mission. She's still unquestionably dedicated to fulfilling her destiny, protecting Sailor Moon, defending the world, and improving the lives of those around her.

* PassionateSportsGirl: Subverted: Minako is really good in volleyball and is seen training rather often, but her two top priorities are her Senshi mission and her possible IdolSinger career.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: In the manga, she is one of the two shortest Senshi, stated to be 5'2", yet she is very strong both in terms of athleticism and magical power.
* PluckyGirl: Minako repeatedly displays tremendous willpower. Case in point: extracting the heart crystal or Dream Mirror always leaves the victim helplessly weak -- if at all conscious -- up to and including Sailor Senshi. Minako was the only exception to both rules; in the former case, helped along by the large amount of energy drinks she'd been chugging, she managed to stay conscious long enough to grab her pure heart crystal and outrun Eudial (who was in a ''car''), and in the latter, she broke free from the rack, transformed, and opened up a goddess-sized can of whoopass on both Amazon guys and their lemures. Yeah, you do ''not'' mess with Minako.

She survived a barrage of bullets to reach Sailor Uranus and protect her from Eudial. She'll even casually risk the world being destroyed so long as Haruka is safe with her, which even surprises the villain attacking Haruka.

Justified though, for the fact that she could destroy a planet on her own, and she just had to do it everytime she woke up. It's pretty telling in the manga that, when Saturn is reborn again, the Senshi are more worried about her then the ''EldritchAbomination that's currently eating the planet.''

* ElementalPowers: The assignment of magical powers and Guardian names comes from a mix of European and Chinese astrology and alchemy that sometimes seems almost random. Mercury gets fresh-water ice powers from Asian symbolism, while Neptune gets ocean-themed water powers from Western. Mars as Fire may have to do with the fact that in Japanese, Mars is "Kasei" (literally Fire Star or Fire Planet). Meanwhile, Jupiter gets powers from both sides, with an elemental affiliation to Wood that shows up in later seasons and manga issues, but she started out with lightning powers from her Roman god namesake. Venus has an easily missed Metal affiliation with her "Love-Me Chain". Neptune gets ocean-themed water powers because of the Japanese word for Neptune: "Sea king star/planet". Same goes for Uranus ("Sky king star") and Pluto ("Dark ruler star"). Saturn's meaning might be a bit more obscure ("Soil star") but it's related to the whole idea of dying, while Sailor Moon is her opposite (rebirth) in the S arc.

* JokeCharacter: As a fighter, especially in the anime.

* UngratefulBastard: Only in the Canadian dub of the 90s anime, when she's flanderized into acting more bratty than she actually is. (While kinda bratty in the original anime, she was nowhere ''that'' bad save for very counted times.) Then again, in her defense, she does eventually grow out of this... especially after the following trope takes place. In ''R'', she had a habit of blithely running off and getting Sailor Moon and the Guardians into major trouble when they try to get her out of whatever situation she'd gotten herself into. And she ''still'' didn't deem Usagi worthy of possessing the Silver Moon Crystal Brooch and steals it from her, leading to the WhatTheHellHero moment below.

!Four Soldiers of the Guardian Senshi Gods



"''Guardian of Water and Knowledge, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor Mercury! Douse yourself in water, and repent!''"

Ami, the first Sailor Guardian to join Sailor Moon in her fight, is a kind but insecure prodigy renowned for her genius intellect. Although she's timid and tends to obsess over her grades, she's a loyal friend and a worthy addition to the team. Her sharp mind and analytical abilities make her the strategist of the Inner Guardians.

** Unbelievable, but true. It's usually mistaken for her trying to help her fellow Guardians, but the ''Exam Battles'' specials showed her being particularly aggressive in trying to force the others into studying and ''really'' happy when she mistook the MonsterOfTheWeek for the boy who regularly matched her grades, as it meant she had an excuse to ''[[SeriousBusiness murder him]]'' ([[DeadpanSnarker Minako promptly declared she wouldn't study hard to avoid being murdered by her]]).

* BadassAdorable: Her [[NiceGuy sweetness]] can't be denied. As for the badass part, she is a Guardian who can manipulate ice and water and summon foggy mists as distractions, proving herself a great asset to the sailor team.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Ami's First Love is a good example of this, with her turning into a AcademicAlphaBitch and hoping that the demon was her academic rival so that she'd get to kill him. Also, in PGSM, she [[spoiler:turns into a DarkMagicalGirl because she felt unneeded by the Guardians, and nearly killed Sailor Moon]].

* CovertPervert: While she's involved in very few romantic subplots of her own, she's always very aware of everyone else's, and when most of the Inner Guardians are perplexed and put off by Haruka and Michiru's relationship, she completely understands what's going on. Also, there's a famous scene where, when they see Seiya wearing only a towel, she can be seen peeking through her hands.

** Also to Haruka, which is explored in the Nehellenia arc of the Stars season. While Ami is the brains of the Inner Guardians, and insists on studying an enemy before attacking, Haruka is the brawn of the Outer Guardians, and tries to plow through hordes of enemies with brute force. Ami is ladylike, gentle, idealistic, insecure, and wants to be liked by others, while Haruka is tomboyish, gruff, cynical enough to think that a horrible sacrifice is necessary to preserve peace, appears very confident, and genuinely does not care whether others accept her or not.

"''Guardian of Flame and Passion, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor Mars! In the name of Mars, I will chastise you!''"

A shrine maiden at Hikawa Shrine who possesses potent psychic abilities in addition to her powers as a Sailor Guardian. Her personality varies wildly from one adaptation to the next, but in all versions she's a dedicated fighter and one of Usagi's closest friends, despite the occasional animosity between the two.

* AdaptationalJerkass: She is an AloofDarkHairedGirl in the manga, but in the first anime adaptation, she is HotBlooded and often picks fights with Usagi. Rei is very prone to insult Usagi, much more than the other way around and in many cases without provocation or reason other than teasing Usagi. Despite their bickering, they're still the closest of the guardians (in the manga Rei is closer to Minako than Usagi). The [=DiC=] dub takes this a step further. Rei is made even meaner to Usagi, losing almost every little hint of [[FireForgedFriends strong companionship]] they have in the original version.

* ArcherArchetype: Rei fits this very well in the manga. She is slender, [[LadyOfWar elegant]], smart, [[TheStoic stoic]], accustomed to being alone, and from the [[{{Ojou}} upper class]]. While she [[HotBlooded isn't anywhere]] [[{{Tsundere}} near as stoic]] in the 90s anime, and she isn't stated to come from a wealthy family, it is made clear that she initially had no respect for Usagi as a fellow Guardian.

* CharacterDevelopment: Due to her past with her father Rei starts off most adaptations of Sailor Moon very emotionally reserved and, at times, seems to barely tolerate the other guardians' presence especially Usagi. Due to spending so much time with them she eventually mellows out, becoming a lot more open and kinder with her friends, and a lot more respectful of Usagi as a result (even if she still frustrates her at time to time).

** To Usagi in the '90s anime. While Rei is a complete {{workaholic}}, Usagi is lazy. Rei instantly takes to her role as a guardian, while Usagi spends several episodes struggling to fight. While Rei initially covets Usagi’s position as leader, and needs to feel control of everything, Usagi shies away from leadership. While Rei’s athleticism is commented upon (and is only second to Makoto in a strength test shown in opening of the S movie), Usagi sucks at sports (except for Frisbee). Rei has a wide range of talents (singing, organizing a school festival, composing music, modelling, skiing, fire-reading, and ESP among others), while Usagi has relatively few skills. Rei pretends she is infallible, while Usagi can admit that she has many faults. While Rei is reluctant to show affection, often tries to do everything herself, and keeps her problems to herself, Usagi is openly affectionate, and believes in relying on friends to help you through problems. While Rei toughens Usagi up, teaches her to show bravery in the face of adversity, and forces her to take her responsibilities seriously, Usagi encourages Rei to cut loose from time to time, allow herself to accept help, and show others affection.

** In the 90s anime and the live-action. She is just as heroic, self-sacrificing, and steadfastly dedicated to defending the world and Princess Serenity as any other Sailor Guardians, if not moreso. She is also good at giving advice to her fellow Guardians, and listening to their problems. That being said, she is bossy, conceited, hypercritical, enjoys ridiculing Usagi (and sometimes the other Guardians), treats [[HopelessSuitor Yuuichirou]] like crap despite his generosity towards her, and even made a little girl who idolized her cry.
** In the live-action, she is empathetic and more gentle with children, but is antisocial and initially refuses to work alongside her fellow Guardians, which angers Makoto.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She is sarcastic and has a HairTriggerTemper, and can be quite mean to Usagi in the first season of the 90s anime, but she's a well-meaning nice girl underneath it all. It's worth pointing out that her bickering with Usagi is not one-sided, and the two tend to give as much as they take when arguing. That said, the 90s anime makes it clear that Rei and Usagi understand each other the best out of all the Inner Guardians, and Rei is frequently the most horrified whenever Usagi is hurt or dies. And vice versa.

* LovableAlphaBitch: Arguably, she is popular at her school, and she does act kind-of snobby and mean towards the other Guardians, particularly Usagi and Ami. But she is actually nice to her classmates, and then she becomes nicer (though still HotBlooded) to the Guardians. The manga, live-action show and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' avert this, as she is more distant than actually mean, and is actually shown to be an outcast because of her psychic powers.

In one [=SuperS=] episode, she got front cover of a magazine for her beauty and she basked in all the attention she got, and even rubbed it in the faces of the other Guardians.

"''Guardian of Thunder and Courage, the pretty sailor suited soldier Sailor Jupiter! I'll make you feel so much regret, it'll leave you numb!''"

Despite her brawny appearance and terrifying reputation, Makoto is a friendly, nurturing girl who enjoys traditionally feminine pursuits like cooking in addition to fighting and working out. Often seen pining for her old ''[[SempaiKohai sempai]]'', who rejected her in the days before she transferred to Usagi and Ami's school. She's [[TheBigGuy the strongest]] of the Inner Guardians, and it shows.

* AdaptationalBadass: While she is still the strongest, largest, and most skilled in hand-to-hand combat of the inner-senshis in the manga, she's basically a street brawler with no formal training (as she's shown losing to Haruka in a friendly Judo match). In the 90s anime she is legitimately a practitioner of Japanese martial arts and is shown practice katas, breaking bricks, and other exercises associated with higher belt levels and even exhibits some actual techniques from time to time including in her civilian form against Youmas. In addition when she went into a quick scuffle with Haruka out of rage, Haruka may have won but she walked away holding her wrist in pain from one of Makoto's blows that she blocked and admitted Makoto's so strong she's possibly an equal.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Makoto tries hard to be feminine, and she is very encouraging and empathetic towards her fellow Guardians, especially Usagi and Ami. She also destroyed multiple youma without Usagi's help, and attacked Nehellenia herself, while the other Guardians were tag-teaming against Nehellenia's mirror images. She is also often the first Guardian to attack a monster.
* BigBraToFill: Sailor Jupiter, by far the most "talented" guardian in the anime, is downright flat-chested in ''PGSM''.

She is also a HugeSchoolgirl with a (likely undeserved) reputation as a brawler. Despite her brashness, and her tendency to resort to intimidation/violence to deal with enemies and delinquents, she is a friendly, warm-hearted, generous girl who wouldn’t lay a finger on an innocent person.

* CannotTellALie: 90s Anime Makoto is so earnest it means she's ''horrible'' when it comes to subterfuge and easily the worst liar of all the Inner Guardians. This is best exemplified when the girls need to protect Usagi's identity from Kaolinite, so they have Minako dress up as Sailor Moon. All Makoto can do is awkwardly, and loudly, declare that Rei's proclamation that Usagi is too much of a clumsy crybaby to ever be a Sailor Guardian is true.

Though she joins the team last, Minako has been active as a Sailor Guardian for quite some time using the alias of "Sailor V". She served as the leader of the Inner Guardians during the Silver Millennium and currently continues in that role, second only to Sailor Moon. Her ditziness and wacky antics belie an incredibly strong and capable HeartbrokenBadass.

In the Stars arc of the manga, The Three Lights learn this the hard way when Minako, who had previously been talking about doing the regular high school thing and finding a boyfriend after the battle was over and Mercury and Jupiter were brought back, all but gives them a death threat if they don't give up their identities to her and Rei.

* BrokenAce: In the live action, she's pretty, famous, and the best and most professional of the Guardians. However, she's dying and she's distracting herself by plunging into her duties as a Guardian. In the manga, she is TheLeader and the most experienced of the Inner Sailor Guardians, and the one that Usagi looks up to the most but only became this way through her eye-opening stint as Sailor V. She started fighting crime and killing monsters when she was 13, and was the first to learn about the Moon Kingdom's past.

* BroughtDownToNormal: In the [=SuperS=] manga, temporarily. This actually happened to ''everybody'', and for the Inners it was the ''second'' time it had technically happened to them, no less. Minako was just more obvious in her angst about it, and she was the last one to recover.

* TheChainsOfCommanding: In the manga, Minako struggles under the isolation and pressure of leading the Sailor Guardians. It comes to a head when she temporarily loses her powers as Sailor Venus. She falls into a depression and has an existential crisis because she sees her life as meaningless if she cannot be Sailor Venus, TheLeader of the Sailor Guardians. It culminates in her lashing out at Usagi, Ami, Rei and Makoto when they gush about the Outer Guardians, feeling as if her fellow Guardians would rather be led by the Outers than her. It's understandable, as she did see her beloved Serenity and fellow Guardians die in battle under her leadership in the previous lifetime, and blames herself entirely for the fall of the Moon Kingdom.

* CombatPragmatist: In the manga and live action. In the manga, Minako has no qualms kicking the crap out of her own brainwashed teammate. In the live action, she distances herself from the other Guardians and goes about her business the way she sees fit.
* ComicBooksAreReal: Anime and manga shows the existence of a Sailor V franchise, that later became a Sailor Guardian franchise.

This might be due to the fact that she got such a late entrance into the series, taking a mere thirty episodes for her to appear.

Her first appearance in both mediums consisting in a BigDamnHeroes where she saves the lives of the other Sailor Guardians and kicks the ass of one or two Shitennou helps the viewers understand why.

** Anime: she's the active guardian for the most time, stops bank robbers in her free time and single-handedly freed London from Dark Kingdom monsters (where the other guardians were nearly killed many times, once being saved by Venus who had just returned from London). Comes second season and we find out that Sailor Venus has apparently been overshadowed by Sailor Moon and forgotten. It didn't help that her Sailor V persona was presumed dead after one mission back in London.

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Minako does ''not'' need to become Sailor Venus to lay the smack down, in all continuities. In the manga, Minako kicks the brainwashed Makoto across the room, and can use the FlashStep. The anime shows Minako RoofHopping without transforming; outrunning a ''car'' after getting her Pure Heart Crystal extracted (anyone else, up and including the other Sailor Guardians, fainted instantly after that, although the massive quantity of energy drinks Minako had just consumed also probably had something to do with it); and reversing a poor zombified victim's hold on her by kicking his face in mid-flip while in school uniform. And the live action shows Minako kicking a monster into a ''concrete column'', scaring away the other monster.

* FallenPrincess: In the manga, while not much of an AlphaBitch, Minako was implied to be a rather popular athlete at her school; enough to rally up all of her classmates to visit a sick friend. Then, her work as Sailor V began, slowly taking up the time that she could be using to have a social life. Eventually, she loses all of her old friends, becoming a loner. She ends up finding [[TrueCompanions new ones]] in [[AllLovingHero Usagi]] and the {{Loner Turned Friend}}s that the Inner Guardians are.

One of her attacks is even the "Venus Love and Beauty Shock", in which she [[KissOfDeath blows a kiss]] to deliver a heart-shaped projectile.

* HiddenDepths: She can be very silly at times but is the most experienced Sailor Guardian and can speak near-perfect English. Also, much of her happy-go-lucky persona is a put-on façade to hide the pain she feels over the sacrifices she'd made for the sake of her mission.
* HotBlooded: In the manga, she's the most proactive of the Guardians. In her own words, "[[{{Determinator}} giving up are the words]][[PluckyGirl [she] hates the most!]]". It's most prevalent in Codename: Sailor V, as she dials it down a bit from there.

* PassionateSportsGirl: Subverted: Minako is really good in volleyball and is seen training rather often, but her two top priorities are her Guardian mission and her possible IdolSinger career.

* PluckyGirl: Minako repeatedly displays tremendous willpower. Case in point: extracting the heart crystal or Dream Mirror always leaves the victim helplessly weak -- if at all conscious -- up to and including Sailor Guardians. Minako was the only exception to both rules; in the former case, helped along by the large amount of energy drinks she'd been chugging, she managed to stay conscious long enough to grab her pure heart crystal and outrun Eudial (who was in a ''car''), and in the latter, she broke free from the rack, transformed, and opened up a goddess-sized can of whoopass on both Amazon guys and their lemures. Yeah, you do ''not'' mess with Minako.

Not to mention, she was the one to lead the Guardians into a group attack that kills them but saves Sailor Moon.

Making things even murkier later on in the season Michiru states that "Uranus in both a man and a woman who is a guardian with both sex and strength", suggesting she may be bigender.

Uranus' classically refined partner, a talented violinist and swimmer. Her poise and elegance coupled with her surprisingly friendly demeanor make her an immediate inspiration to the Inners. Despite her graceful manners, she's no less merciful than her girlfriend towards those who get in her way.

* TheAce: To perhaps a greater extent than Haruka, as she's considered to be the feminine ideal: sophisticated, cool, and artistically talented. She's wealthy enough to own a Stradivarius and attend an elite academy, has great artistic talent in many areas, athletic in civilian and Guardian form, and is leagues more powerful than the inner guardians. In the manga, Usagi, Ami, Rei, and Makoto frustrate Minako (the original ace) by gushing about how awesome Haruka and Michiru are. She's witty enough to fluster the normally suave Haruka, and intelligent enough to manipulate Seiya into letting his guard down by charming him.

* UndyingLoyalty: Obviously to Usagi/Princess Serenity, as is the case with all other Sailor Guardians, but more notably, to Haruka. She survived a barrage of bullets to reach Sailor Uranus and protect her from Eudial. She'll even casually risk the world being destroyed so long as Haruka is safe with her, which even surprises the villain attacking Haruka.

* TheDreaded: The Outer Guardians were deeply afraid of her and had attempted to kill Hotaru to prevent Sailor Saturn from awakening. Justified though, for the fact that she could destroy a planet on her own, and she just had to do it everytime she woke up. It's pretty telling in the manga that, when Saturn is reborn again, the Guardians are more worried about her then the ''EldritchAbomination that's currently eating the planet.''

* NecessaryEvil: Saturn is widely feared by the other Guardians due to the fact that she can, and will, destroy worlds if she believes they are beyond saving. However, as she explains, Saturn has to destroy planets in order for new life to begin. It's entirely possible that Princess Serenity and the other Guardians would have never reincarnated if she hadn't destroyed the Silver Millennium first.

* RedemptionDemotion: She is considered as perhaps the most powerful of all guardians and was capable of destroying Pharaoh 90, but after entering the group she is as powerful as the others. This is justified since her powers are mostly destructive and she can't use it without most likely either destroying herself or endangering those around her.

* TheSacredDarkness: Saturn functions as a dark counterpart to Sailor Moon herself. Saturns power to destroy is less pleasant that Moon's power to create and terrifies the other Guardians, but Saturn is firmly on the side of good and removing her from the picture would be just as catastrophic to the cycle of death and rebirth as removing Sailor Moon.

** In a [=SuperS=] episode of the first anime, she prepares to attack a lemure who copies the Senshi's attacks, only to profess that she's kidding when the Senshi try to stop her.

* AdaptationalJerkass: She is an AloofDarkHairedGirl in the manga, but in the first anime adaptation, she is HotBlooded and often picks fights with Usagi. Rei is very prone to insult Usagi, much more than the other way around and in many cases without provocation or reason other than teasing Usagi. Despite their bickering, they're still the closest of the senshi (in the manga Rei is closer to Minako than Usagi). The [=DiC=] dub takes this a step further. Rei is made even meaner to Usagi, losing almost every little hint of [[FireForgedFriends strong companionship]] they have in the original version.

* CharacterDevelopment: Due to her past with her father Rei starts off most adaptations of Sailor Moon very emotionally reserved and, at times, seems to barely tolerate the other Senshi's presence especially Usagi. Due to spending so much time with them she eventually mellows out, becoming a lot more open and kinder with her friends, and a lot more respectful of Usagi as a result (even if she still frustrates her at time to time).

** To Usagi in the '90s anime. While Rei is a complete {{workaholic}}, Usagi is lazy. Rei instantly takes to her role as a Senshi, while Usagi spends several episodes struggling to fight. While Rei initially covets Usagi’s position as leader, and needs to feel control of everything, Usagi shies away from leadership. While Rei’s athleticism is commented upon (and is only second to Makoto in a strength test shown in opening of the S movie), Usagi sucks at sports (except for Frisbee). Rei has a wide range of talents (singing, organizing a school festival, composing music, modelling, skiing, fire-reading, and ESP among others), while Usagi has relatively few skills. Rei pretends she is infallible, while Usagi can admit that she has many faults. While Rei is reluctant to show affection, often tries to do everything herself, and keeps her problems to herself, Usagi is openly affectionate, and believes in relying on friends to help you through problems. While Rei toughens Usagi up, teaches her to show bravery in the face of adversity, and forces her to take her responsibilities seriously, Usagi encourages Rei to cut loose from time to time, allow herself to accept help, and show others affection.

* CannotTellALie: 90s Anime Makoto is so earnest it means she's ''horrible'' when it comes to subterfuge and easily the worst liar of all the Inner Guardians. This is best exemplified when the girls need to protect Usagi's identity from Kaolinite, so they have Minako dress up as Sailor Moon. All Makoto can do is awkwardly, and loudly, declare that Rei's proclamation that Usagi is too much of a clumsy crybaby to ever be a Sailor Senshi is true.

** Anime: she's the Sailor Senshi active for the most time, stops bank robbers in her free time and single-handedly freed London from Dark Kingdom monsters (where the other Sailor Senshi were nearly killed many times, once being saved by Venus who had just returned from London). Comes second season and we find out that Sailor Venus has apparently been overshadowed by Sailor Moon and forgotten. It didn't help that her Sailor V persona was presumed dead after one mission back in London.
