** Some dubs made Uranus ''male''. This kept "his" relationship with Neptune alive, but confused many fans whenever "he" transformed into "his" rather feminine Sailor Senshi uniform – complete with a fancy skirt!

* Zoisite once challenges Mamoru to a showdown for the Rainbow Crystals. In the original, his line is "here are my Crystals. Now, present yours". In the English dub, Zoisite says "I'll show you mine. Now, you show me yours." Without context it sounds like [[ShesAManInJapan she's]] asking for something ''other'' than Crystals.

** Another interesting quirk of Haruka's was referring to Usagi and Minako as kittens. While this may seem like an innocent pet name, "kitten" happens to be Japanese slang for the femme in a lesbian relationship.

** Famous for creating loads of {{Narm}}, the English dub edited this by making her ([[DubNameChange Lita]]) say that she was perfect because she had the “most acting experience and [[UnusualEuphemism talent]].”
*** This would’ve passed without any raised eyebrows if the dub had taken out the sound effects which suggested the bouncing of breasts, or the frames in which “Lita” shoved her well-endowed chest into some of the other characters' faces, leaving them furiously blushing and turning away.

* When Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask find out that Chibiusa is their KidFromTheFuture from a future Mamoru, they are absolutely astounded and their [[LuminescentBlush faces glow red with embarrassment]]. Not really too old for young children to understand, but what really cranked the scene up to that standard was when a concerned Sailor Mars angrily bellows:

Related to this -- there was one time when Fish did NOT crossdress for his work... when he was targeting a PrettyBoy who was implied to ''actually'' be homosexual, and probably [[SubordinateExcuse in a relationship with his male assistant.]]

The North American’s English dubs of ''Sailor Moon'' is mostly remembered for (badly) toning down anything that could possibly influence the young viewers in a negative way. Sexual references or slight bits of nudity are either edited slightly or removed completely, as well as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking mild or extreme violence, death and anything concerning Japanese culture]].

On top of these changes, any references to homosexuality were edited and/or cut. [[SchoolgirlLesbians Sailor Uranus and Neptune’s]] relationship was changed into the both of them being cousins, but this failed because the more that the show was censored, the more problems unsurfaced, turning the same-sex couple into [[KissingCousins ambiguously incestuous relatives]] – especially if you’d seen the original episodes in the third season ''Sailor Moon S''.

** In a memorable fashion, the North American’s English dub [[ShesAManInJapan made Zoisite female]] and kept the relationship alive, instead of censoring it like they did with the lesbians. It was much easier with the gay young men than the gay teenage girls because Zoisite had long hair styled into a ponytail. All that needed to be done was to have Zoisite dubbed by a female actress.

* When Usagi’s (Sailor Moon) middle school holds a school production of ''Literature/SnowWhite'', she and her group of friends argue over who out of them should be the leading lady.

* There's a scene during the Sailor Moon S series where Mimete is moaning in very suggestive way right off screen while lifting one of her legs. It turns out that she's playing Twister, but before it's revealed that it was very easy to mistake for very gymnastic sex. This is one of the scenes considered to be even saucier via DubText - the sultry moans were ''cranked up'' for the English dub.

* One of the most infamous moments of the entire series is one of the most well-known GettingCrapPastTheRadar moments between Sailor Uranus and Neptune from the ''Supers'' Movie. After killing some {{Mooks}}, Uranus wonders whether the villains' plans have good intentions. Neptune walks over to her and points out that "there are so many fun things to do as adults", therefore the villains should consider otherwise. This makes [[{{Adorkable}} Uranus]] slowly blush and then cough in embarrassment.
** Considering how vague the comment was, the moment just implies [[GetYourMindOutOfTheGutter how dirty Haruka's mind is]].
** Why did you think that this scene is the page image and the page quote?



** Sailor Star Fighter, Kou Seiya, developed an infactuation with Usagi, who was waiting for Mamoru to return from his studying trip to the United States. She was rather convinced that Mamoru had actually officially ended his and Usagi's relationship, and in her disguise as a male, she tried to kiss the teenager at least twice; there was an occasion in which Usagi seemed to believe that she was about to be ''raped'' by her. But that turned out to be a misunderstanding because Seiya was actually asking her out to a night club.

* In the early seasons, Zoisite purposely traps himself into a tight alleyway. Sailor Moon, Mercury and Jupiter follow him in at the same time, but get stuck at the entrance. This makes Mercury fall forward and land with her [[PantyShot bottom sticking up in the air]]. This somehow [[LesYay attracts the attention of Jupiter next to her]], who stares up her skirt for a while
[[http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/9086/sm31.png with googly eyes, and a deep blush]], and then goes further by [[http://powet.tv/powetblog/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/sailor_moon_episode_31_sailor_jupiter_stares_at_sailor_mercurys_butt.jpg biting her fist for a second]]. It's rather amazing that that managed to be kept in the dubbed versions.

*** Because of the censorship of any homosexual-like context, most of Haruka's flirtatious banter was removed from many of the dubs. What failed was the animation editing that ''kept in'' all of the mesmerized looks and blushes from the girls that Haruka was courting with.

* There was a lot of controversy with the Mamoru/Usagi relationship. In the anime, Mamoru was college student instead of a high school student like in the manga, which meant a ''massive'' age gap. Usagi went from 14 to 16, and Mamoru probably went from 21 to 23 years old.
