''Codename: Sailor V'' (or ''Codename wa Sailor V'') is the story of Minako Aino, whom ''Sailor Moon'' fans will know as Sailor Venus. While it started as a one-off, it basically morphed into the story of the [[SixthRanger Fifth Ranger]] before she joins the FiveManBand. Minako in many ways is very similar to Usagi, given that Usagi is actually an {{Expy}} of Minako. But ''Sailor V'' is a generally sillier, goofier series than the ''Sailor Moon'' manga; it's closer in feel to the ''Sailor Moon'' anime in its first season.

* LoveCannotOvercome: Sailor V and [[spoiler:Danburite]] do not get together, due to being on opposing sides of a battle between good and evil. [[spoiler:Danburite doesn't seem to realize that he can't defeat Sailor V and conquer her heart at the same time, and Sailor V realizes that she can't forego her duties for the Earth.]]

** Inspector Wakagi looks like a more masculine Haruka Tenoh, aka Sailor Uranus.



* GenreSavvy: In the Hawaii chapter, Minako claims Sailor V "sent her" to take her place for the Hawaii vacation alongside her parents. When Natsuna and Wakagi show up at the Hawaiian airport looking for V, they're told she sent a stand-in. One woman, however, mentions since Sailor V was seen at the airport, it's possible she's really the girl who took her place. The comic even lampshades the woman's observation by saying "This one's sharp!"



* HeroicWillpower: Subverted. Minako's friend Hikaru is a frequent victim of the Dark Agency, but managed to completely resist the allure of [=DeBrine=]'s Rainbow Chocolates, being the only other person in the city besides Artemis and Wakagi to be affected by them.

* BigBeautifulWoman: [=DeBrine=] who, despite being a villain, is drawn pretty cute.



** Saito has an uncanny resemblance to Kunzite. Noting that he resembled someone she couldn't remember was one of the earliest instances of Mina recalling her past life.

** Saito has an uncanny resemblance to Kunzite. Noting that he resembled someone she couldn't remember was one of the earliest instances of Mina recalling her past life. Furthering muddling the situation is that, at one point, Saitou is referred to as "Saitou-kun." Reverse that, and it becomes "Kun-Saitou."



** Minako's mother looks exactly like Usagi's, and acts exactly like Usagi's when nagging her. However, the format means we ''only'' see her when she's nagging her, and so she appears to [[ParentalRejection not like Minako very much]]. However, we see her little - you only get a panel per issue when she's reacting to something like Minako's schoolwork suffering (from superheroing she of course can't reveal.) It was probably intended to be a relationship more like Usagi and Ikuko.

** Hibiscusy looks like a dark skinned version of Mimete, especially fitting since Mimete was Minako's EvilCounterpart in the Witches 5.

* ImpossiblyDeliciousFood: Rainbow Chocolate, and unfortunately for everyone, its weight gain effects can't be undone by Minako's compact.


Added DiffLines:

* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: During the conflict with Hibiscusy, the hatred Wakagi's older brother develops for Sailor V becomes so great Hibiscusy is suddenly sensing "I feel a strong desire to kill Sailor V somewhere!"

* {{Narcissist}}: Naturally, Narcissus of the Dark Agency. Practically every panel he's in has him striking a pose.


Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeTitle: Subverted. "Sailor V's Vacation - Desire for Hawaii," doesn't take place ''in'' Hawaii. Instead, the conflict is all about how Minako won a trip to Hawaii and went to Greece by mistake, causing a big chase with Natsuna, Wakagi, and the Dark Agency.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: [=DeBrine=]. Her scheme was the most successful out of every villain employed by the Dark Agency, mostly because of how complex it was.


Added DiffLines:

* ProudBeauty: Villainous idol Pandora thinks she's the most beautiful woman in the world. She's really hideous underneath her make-up, and avoids mirrors because they expose her true face.

* TemptingFate: During the [=DeBrine=] chapter, Natsuna mentions the stress of dealing with the Dark Agency and Sailor V has made her lose weight. [=DeBrine=]'s Rainbow Chocolate soon puts that in reverse.
