** Having grown up abroad also explains Minako's picture-perfect Savate kicks: while finding a Savate gym in Japan may be rather hard, they're relatively easy to find all around Europe, all it would take would be her deciding to practice martial arts and her parents taking advantage of her propensity to run.

* In the anime, Minako's origin episode explains she already knew Alan from before Sailor V's London period. She actually spent large parts of her childhood abroad, likely in London, due her father's job for a trading company-and all of sudden, her prowess in English in spite of being in London for about half a year makes sense.
** The manga also hints at this (more subtly, most notably in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' when she was to go on a vacation abroad and knew perfectly both how to use the airport and her parents' habit of buying things in the airport shops because they spend less there). This explains both her {{Malapropism}} (present in the manga too, just not to the extent of the anime), poor social skills (for Japan), eventual isolation at school, and even poor grades in English: she spent so much of her childhood outside Japan she doesn't have a good hold of the finer nuances of the Japanese language and picked up manners more suitable to Western countries, living in the period where repatriated children are only starting to be valued for their language skills many see her as a bother and drop her once she starts giving up her sportive interests in favor of being a better Sailor Soldier (with Hikaru and Amano eventually falling to peer pressure), and Japanese repatriated children who grew up in English-speaking countries actually have trouble with the way English is taught in Japanese schools (it's based purely on rote memorization and has little space for actual language skills).

* Not sure if this was intentional, but in the anime, Sailor Jupiter's ice-skating prowess (said to be as good as Princess Serenity) is appropriate when you remember that [[TheMoonsOfJupiter Jupiter's moon Europa]] is entirely covered in ''ice''.

* Sailor Venus' transformations all involve streams of five-pointed stars. A symbol of Venus, dating back to Roman times, is a five-pointed star.

* In one infamous occasion, Minako tried to get Yaten to go watch a ''porn movie'' with her. She knows first hand [[ObliviousToLove how much people can be dense when it comes to love]], and was trying to drop a hint that ''nobody'' could miss (and going overboard as usual]].

* I found it interesting is whenever enemies got attacked by the rainbow moon spinning heart ache they sign love in ASL when the heart crashes through them.

* The amount of plot points/power-ups that revolve around Sailor Moon gaining power through AllYourPowersCombined makes perfect sense because the moon reflects the light of other celestial bodies to produce what we see as moonlight.

***She wasn't orginally one, Sailor Moon didn't exist in the Silver Millenium. The Silver Crystal Evolves into her Sailor Crystal and when it returns to normal after she becomes queen, she looses much of her senshi power, as Neo-Queen Serentiy herself states (But is still more powerful then Eternal Sailor moon as stated by Diana). The orginal Sailor Moon form was a disguise; all her powers come from the Crystal or magic items, while every other senshi has at least one attack they create themselves. Chibi-Moon is the same way, her Sailor Crystal also being an evolved form of the Silver Crystal. For moon it became the Silver Moon Crystal, for Chibi-Usa it turns into the Pink Moon Crystal.

** Note that that is anime only. In the manga Tin Nyanko is not in fact [[Spoiler: Sailor Mau]]. The manga Sailor Animates all sold themselves to Shadow Galatica and betrayed their original planets and killed said planet's Guardian Senshi in exchange for senshi power themselves. A different kind of FridgeHorror, you know...

* The girls shouting "Make up" when they transform may sound random, but it starts to make more sense when you realise that most of the Moon-related transformation items are compact mirrors and almost every item used was sold as a make up related toy at some point.
