* OddNameOut: Minako's name doesn't fit in the ThemeNaming, as her last name doesn't refer to the planet Venus... [[SubvertedTrope Except the kanji of her given name can be read "Binasu", the older romanization of the word "Venus"]].

Her last name does however include "Love" in it's charcters, giving an indirect referance.

Added DiffLines:

* TheDividual: With Neptune; They were created as a pair, never get solos in the Sera Myu, instead getting duets, the scenes they have solo can be counted on one hand. The 90's anime forcibly separates them for a single episode, instead pairing Uranus with Mercury leading her to comment how weird it is to not have Neptune around.

The 90's anime forcibly separates them for a single episode, instead pairing her with Mars. There are jokes in the fandom that Michiru (and rarely Haruka) lacks a personality outside their relationship but careful examination reveals this is untrue. They each get scenes or episodes where one is the focus over the other though both are still there.

* AdaptationalWimp: In the manga she had legitimate attacks. In the anime, her one attack in ''S'' didn't work half the time, and the rest of the time it hurt the monster only as much as a hard spanking. By ''Super S'' she lost any attacks at all and her only power was transforming and having [[SummonMagic the ability to call Pegasus]].
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Chibi-Usa in the manga is noticeably less bratty and more shy than her anime version.

* CharacterDevelopment: In the anime, she was more mature in S than she had been in R. By ''Super S'', however, she was WiseBeyondHerYears to the point of being more mature than the other Guardians, her friends, and even ''adult'' characters-of-the-day. Though it's more directed to {{Flanderization}} on ''Super S''.

* KidAppealCharacter: She is very popular among the young viewers in Japan. Being out of place in the story of ''[=SuperS=]'', however, caused Toei's attempt to focus on the character for the anime to backfire miserably. She did have better luck with ''Crystal'', though.



* LittleMissBadass: In the manga, where she's legitimately more powerful.

* UngratefulBastard: Only in the Original Dub version, 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 the R season of the anime, 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.

** At least half of the Guardians have either [[ParentalAbandonment lost family members]], were [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer friendless]] while growing up, or both, in their present-day lifetimes. And that's not even getting into their past lives, where [[spoiler:Princess Serenity was DrivenToSuicide after Prince Endymion sacrificed his life fighting Queen Beryl]].

** [[StepfordSmiler Minako]] had been fighting youma as Sailor V a year before the Sailor Guardians, 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 Guardians, and as the Guardians' 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".

* UnstoppableRage: Each of the Inner Guardians receive a power-up after experiencing this in the R season of the anime. Sailor Venus receives another power in a similar fashion in the [=SuperS=] season after being bound up and having her Dream Mirror ripped out by the two guys she was two-timing. Same with Sailor Mercury in her [=SuperS=] movie special, when she thinks that her academic rival is trying to get under her skin and attack her (the enemy she attacks [[spoiler: turns out to be someone completely different]].)

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: Just after Eudial kills Michiru and aims her gun at Haruka, Usagi appears in a doorway, and lunges forward, hitting Eudial and causing her to practically try to hold on to the edge of the dark cathedral pit, until she jumps onto a bell that goes down the pit. Sadly, this still doesn't save Haruka from committing suicide.]]

* BiTheWay: In the third manga arc her relationship with Mamoru is briefly called into question when she shows feelings toward Haruka/Uranus, even after finding out that Haruka is a girl. Also, in both the manga and the anime, she explicitly wants to follow the newly met Rei around town because she finds her so beautiful (complete with cartoon hearts for eyes). StupidSexyFlanders is also a likely explanation. However, this is confirmed in the manga by [[spoiler: Sailor Cosmos, who was revealed to be Sailor Moon's future self in some form, and who indeed [[ScrewYourself stole a kiss from her]].]]

* ShipperOnDeck: Rei/Yuuichirou, Haruka/Michiru, Chibi-Usa/Helios, Motoki/Reika, Ami/Urawa ''and'' Naru/[[spoiler: Umino]] fangirl.
* SickeninglySweethearts: In the opening phases of ''R'', she gets ''extremely'' cuddly around Mamoru. Mamoru at first allows it but tries to remain the adult in the relationship, and later [[spoiler: breaks up with her for plot reasons]].

Even worse in the manga, because [[spoiler:Galaxia takes Mamoru's Star Seed ''right in front of her eyes'']] and she spends a good deal of the time blocking the event out of her mind.

''and yet somehow Usagi, Ami, and Makoto never saw her despite that they were behind Minako the whole time''.

She's almost as brutal dealing with school bullies and the like as she is with ''youma''. Not to mention, she killed [[TheDragon Beryl]] in the manga.

* BadassBookworm: An established violinist, whose swimming ability is just as remarkable, and it becomes a surprise that Ami is able to keep up with her during a race. Also, during her fight with [[spoiler: Sailor Moon]], she easily restrains her, and the Sailor Stars opener shows that Michiru is quite capable of getting physical.

* ImmuneToBullets: Eudial's death trap triggers bullets that fly from every direction. Neptune gets hit with every single one, until the guns are out of ammo. ''She survives'', if only for a few moments, and it takes a blast from Eudial herself to finish her off [[spoiler: and rip out her Pure Heart Crystal.]]

* HasTwoMommies: When [[spoiler: Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna adopt her after she resurrects. She's calls them Haruka-papa, Michiru-mama, and Setsuna-mama respectively, showing that Haruka is viewed more as a father than a mother]]. Her real, albeit dead, mother Keiko probably counts too.

** Hotaru only stayed the same because, by the time she was introduced, Cloverway had already eschewed this practice and switched to using the original names of characters of the week instead. However, since Professor Tomoe had introduced before that, which led to his surname being mispronounced, Hotaru's surname was similarly mispronounced.



* PaperThinDisguise: One of the more infamous examples, the girls essentially wear uniforms similar to actual school girl uniforms and no one of them wears even a simple mask. Yup, no masks, no hair color changes, pretty much nothing concealing their identities. Despite this, no one seems to recognize Usagi and her pals.
