* BetaCouple: Eventually, Makoto and Motoki.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Beryl wants Prince Endymion and the power of the silver crystal, she certainly doesn't want the world destroyed again.



* TheGlassesGottaGo: Ami stops wearing her glasses, which are mainly for aesthetic purposes, as she starts to open up with Usagi.



* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: The team against [[spoiler:Dark Mercury]]. Usagi even drops her costume rather than fight back, and starts with her speech (she is, after all, a MessianicArchetype), to the point of bringing out an object the one had given the other as a gift.

** Minako makes it a point to chide Rei for not awakening her powers and gives her a CoolAndUnusualPunishment to help, especially since according to her Rei is the Senshi leader. Minako later reveals she's the real leader, much to Rei's chagrin. Later on, [[spoiler:Minako accidentally reveals that her powers haven't awakened, and Rei has to rescue her from a youma.]]

** Rei calls out Minako for her IWorkAlone attitude, especially when Minako tells her that she is the leader of the Senshi, when it turns out that Minako is the real leader and was leading on Rei.
** Sailor Luna chides Mako for not going on a "proper date" with Motoki, since Mako believes that it's better to be alone and though she likes Motoki she doesn't want to pursue a relationship with him. This normally wouldn't be a problem, except Mako's Senshi powers only awaken when she's not alone.

** Minako while posing as the Princess starts instructing Rei on how to act as the leader of the Senshi. She starts by mentioning that Rei's powers should have awakened before Sailor Moon's, and challenges Rei to get out of her comfort zone by singing karaoke for a pediatrics ward. Just as Rei gets comfortable in her role, it's revealed Sailor Moon is actually Princess Serenity, and that Sailor Venus is the real leader of the Senshi.

** In one episode Rei and Makoto get into a fight over whether or not to help Usagi with English homework. Makoto rescues Rei, however, from what she believes is a kidnapping. Rei is touched since Makoto was technically right; she was being forced to see her father, and they bond over the experience as well as then helping Usagi with a costume contest.

When Mio tries to humiliate Usagi by claiming the latter has gotten Minako to perform an impromptu concert for her classmates? Minako shows up, sings a showstopper, sends a DeathGlare at Mio, and spares Usagi the humiliation. Not to mention [[spoiler:protecting the Princess from the Dark Kingdom.]]

* StealthMentor:
** Minako towards Rei when they first encounter each other, with Minako putting up a JerkassFacade about Rei supposedly being the leader of the Senshi and "punishing" her by making her sing for sick kids at a hospital, which forces Rei to get out of her comfort zone and ask Usagi for help. Eventually, after Minako faints on stage, she reveals this is because [[spoiler:she doesn't have long to live and wants Rei to TakeUpMySword.]]

* TakeUpMySword: After [[spoiler:Minako dies]], Rei uses the latter's tambourine [[spoiler:in the fight against Princess Sailor Moon.]] [[spoiler:Minako]] had revealed earlier that she was preparing the Senshi for this moment.



* TaughtByExperience:
** Kunzite. His first attack on the Senshi involved attempting to corrupt Usagi, by transforming her into a youma. Thing is he didn't anticipate that Usagi would fight the corruption from the inside or that ThePowerOfFriendship would bring her back to normal. [[spoiler:When he tries the same trick on Ami, he waits until she is isolated from the other Senshi, lets her waste multiple attacks on him, and then corrupts her immediately.
