* Most of the women present when Jadeite attacked Kyouya and Shinobu's wedding in ''Fanfic/WhiteDevilOfTheMoon''.[[note]]The only known exceptions were Nanoha, Fate, Minako, Shinobu, Momoko, and Suzuka (the former three were in their Magical Girl outfits and the latter were non-combatants).[[/note]] Justified, since the last Takamachi family get together was attacked by terrorists, so almost all the guests were armed.
