* 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 Harukah 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 Youmis. In addition when she went into a quick scuffle with Harukah out of rage, Harukah 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.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the manga and ''Crystal'', it is explained Saturn was responsible for the destruction of the Moon Kingdom and her reawakening means the end of the world. In the 90s anime, not only Saturn wasn't responsible for the Moon Kingdom destruction, she was also mistaken as the Messiah of Silence due to her body being used as a host for Mistress 9. And while it's still implied she does possess ApocalypseMaiden powers, she's able to control them and use them for good, unlike her chaotic manga counterpart.

** What's especially horrifying about this scene is Chibi-Usa's response to Usagi preparing to smack her is to just close her eyes and steel herself, which is an indication of a child having suffered frequent physical abuse. One has to wonder how often Chibi-Usa has been subjected to this trope, and how often she actually ''has'' been hit.

* {{Bifauxnen}}: In the manga, it's even described as "having the strengths of both sexes" and is her "special advantage as a soldier" -- so being genderqueer isn't just her personal style, it's her goddamn ''superpower''.

to:

* {{Bifauxnen}}: She's depicted as this in all versions, but much more so in the 90s anime where she almost always dresses in a masculine way and regularly invokes EvenTheGirlsWantHer. In the manga, it's even described manga she starts out as "having the strengths of both sexes" and is this, but leans towards wearing more feminine outfits after her "special advantage identity as a soldier" -- so being genderqueer isn't just her personal style, it's her goddamn ''superpower''.Sailor Guardian is fully revealed.

* StatuesqueStunner: Makoto's height is easily equal to that of many adult men. Unfortunately, most people are more likely to be intimidated by her height than attractive.
