* ColorfulThemeNaming: The security guards' actors in Act Zero are named after the hair colors their actors had as the Shitennou. Shiroi (white) is Zoisite, Akai (red) is Nephrite, Kuroi (black) is Kunzite. For some reason, Jadeite's actor [[AttractiveBentGender played a woman named Hanako (flower)]], which may be a reference to the fact that he was the most colorful out of the Shitennou.

Also, see OffTheShelfFX below.

* PantyShot: The Soldiers' skirts were ''specifically designed'' to flip up as much as humanly possible so the actresses could perform their stunts more effectively.
to:
* OffTheShelfFX: It's ''very'' noticeable that the TransformationTrinkets and various items (such as the iconic Moon Stick) the girls use are the show's own merch, straight out of the box. Well, at least you know exactly what you're buying. * PantyShot: The Soldiers' skirts were ''specifically designed'' to flip up as much as humanly possible so the actresses could perform their stunts more effectively. It's also not ''technically'' a panty shot since they're wearing leotards underneath the skirts (as with other Sailor Moon media).

** It's better for the girls, who now sport drastic hairstyle changes -- in contrast to the anime, where they looked exactly the same in their civilian identities. Human!Luna, however, plays it straight by [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair having the same navy blue hair]] she has as Sailor Luna.

** Officer Akai (played by Nephrite's actor) in Act Zero takes anti-depressants named ''Ami-tan'' (a pun on Ami-chan). He comments "disgusting" while ingesting the tablets, similar to how Nephrite eats Ami's burnt cookies and their mutual affection cooled his temperamental attitude.
