%%* StoneWall: Sailor Mercury. Her skills will barely do above ScratchDamage even late in the game.
* SupportPartyMember: Ironically, Sailor Moon; her defense and attack make her a lesser StoneWall, and her link techs are geared towards healing and status buffs. And even upgrading her to Super Sailor Moon in battle doesn't change her stats much; the only large-scale change are new attacks that become available. Also Sailor Pluto, who has mediocre to terrible stats...and the Time Stop ability, which more than makes up for that. Finally, Sailor Chibi-Moon has some useful link techs with other characters despite her own attacks being completely worthless.

* ContinuitySnarl: The game combines elements from the manga and anime seemingly at random. Possibly the worst case with this is the part with Professor Tomoe and Germatoid. In the anime, Professor Tomoe was a more-or-less innocent victim ''possessed'' by the evil Germatoid, who later left the professor's body to fight Neptune and Uranus. The professor, however, lives. In the manga, Professor Tomoe was an evil man who willingly transformed ''himself'' into his Germatoid form and gets KilledOffForReal. Sailor Moon: Another Story has Tomoe still alive, which means he should have been ''possessed'' by Germatoid, yet when you meet him later on, he ''transforms'' into Germatoid (and for extra snarl points, it's the plantlike anime Germatoid instead of the humanoid manga Germatoid.). Defeating Germatoid will result in Tomoe's permanent death, with the implication that it is his fate. Even the fact that the bad guys are messing with the timeline doesn't explain this blunder.
** There's also the Barasuishou (Rose Crystal), created before the Golden Crystal, but essentially the same thing except for the fact that the Rose Crystal is red and shaped like a rose.
** The Sailor Senshi's attacks are also a mix of the anime and the manga.
** A flashback about Marduk's motives reveals the battle against the Death Busters happened because of the ''Silver Crystal'', as in the manga. In the 90's anime, the battle happened because of the ''Holy Grail'' and ''Chibi-Usa's pure heart''.

''Another Story'' starts with Hotaru being looked after by Uranus and Neptune, implying that Tomoe died. However, he turns up alive later on, in the game, seemingly possessed. The first time he is fought, he ''transforms'' into Germatoid (and (who, for the extra snarl points, it's is the plantlike anime plant-like Germatoid from the anime instead of the humanoid manga Germatoid.). Defeating Germatoid will result in Tomoe's permanent death, one from the manga), but trying to reason with him after the fight reveals that he has indeed been possessed... by an entity that resembles a generic daimon from the manga. And no matter how that part is handled, Tomoe dies, with the implication that it is his fate. Even the fact that the bad guys are messing with the timeline doesn't explain this blunder.

** The Sailor Senshi's attacks are also attack lists contain both a mix set of moves they got in the anime-exclusive Makaiju arc, and a set of moves provided by their Planet Power transformations which the Inner Senshi only had in the manga (in the game, they keep using the Star Power transformations like in the anime).

of the anime and the manga.

* FindTheCure: When Mamoru is injured, the Senshi search the world for the Shitennou's Hi stones, which have the power to bring forth the Barasuishou, which can cure him. Also, while in Switzerland, Mercury must find some halyomoss to cure a character's mother of a rare illness.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The climax of ''Sailor Moon S'' reveals Pluto will either lose her life or face severe consequences for stopping time. Well, that doesn't hold much importance here, as you can use this ability as much as you want as long as you have MP for it.

** At the end of the first chapter,

** In both the manga and the anime, Sailor Pluto's
ability as much as you want to stop time is a forbidden power that she can only activate at the cost of her life. In the game, it's just a normal technique that can be used multiple times as long as you have she has enough MP to cast it.
** Super Sailor Moon loses her attack set in exchange
for it.her Rainbow Moon Heartache move, even though nothing would prevent her from using Moon Tiara Action in that form (which she actually does in one of the later anime movies and at least once during the ''[=SuperS=]'' series).



* GuideDangIt: Many players get stuck in Medias Village/Mishii Village because it isn't exactly obvious that you have to talk to a minor NPC (George's mother), probably ''again'' before you can advance the plot.
** The game features a sort of quest where you pick up puzzle pieces around the world and from defeating monsters as you play through. Completing the puzzle will get you a reward later on. What they don't bother to tell you is that some puzzle pieces are "hidden" in normally-uninteractable scenery sprites like barrels and jugs.

* NintendoHard: The game has several instances where you're so weak a 1-hit attack from a random monster is enough to kill you. The bosses are so hard you'll be forced to wander around and spend some time battling monsters just to level up in order to beat them, and they still take ''hours'' to beat. Made even worse by the fact that once you reach a new area, you'll be forced to play with a new character and have to level her up all over again. Oh, and don't even ask about Sailor Mercury's chapter.

Some of the fact that once boss battles can last for hours even with grinding. The worst instance of this is Chapter 2, where the story requires you reach a new area, you'll be forced to play with each of the four Inner Senshi solo; Mercury in particular, despite being a new character and have more geared for support than direct offense, has to level beat her up all over again.
