** Hard to say whether or not it was this game that came first or ChronoTrigger (both came out around the same time, but its tough to know which was in development first, last, or longest), but both games have a mechanic that lets a player use two or more characters for an attack.

* 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''.

In the anime, Professor Tomoe was is a more-or-less innocent victim ''possessed'' by the evil alien Germatoid, who later left the professor's body to fight Neptune and Uranus. The professor, however, lives. remains alive after Germatoid leaves his body. In the manga, Professor Tomoe was an is a genuinely evil man MadScientist who willingly transformed ''himself'' ''transforms himself'' into his Germatoid a form and gets KilledOffForReal. Sailor Moon: Another Story has Tomoe still alive, which means he should have been ''possessed'' by called Germatoid, yet when you meet which leads to him getting KilledOffForReal, leaving his daughter Hotaru in the care of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. ''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).
** Mamoru's Barasuishou/Rose Crystal is basically an anime-flavored version
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
Golden Crystal he had in the manga. In the 90's anime, the battle happened because of the ''Holy Grail'' and ''Chibi-Usa's pure heart''.manga (although SMAS was created before its introduction).



* 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.

* FindTheCure: When FindTheCure:
** At the end of the first chapter,
Mamoru is injured, hit by an enemy attack which leaves him in a coma; a good portion of the game plot concerns the Senshi search searching the world for the Shitennou's Hi stones, which have the power to bring forth the Barasuishou, which can cure him. Also, while him.
** Mercury's quest
in Switzerland, Mercury must find Switzerland involves finding 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 GameplayAndStorySegregation:
** 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.
* HopelessBossFight: Super Beryl initially before weakened in the cutscene. Before, her offense and defense stats are actually higher than Demon Apsu's, and her speed stat means that she'll attack first and wipe your party before gets the chance to attack.

Several pieces are "hidden" hidden in normally-uninteractable scenery sprites like such as 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.

* NintendoHard: The game has several instances where Wandering into new areas before you're so weak a 1-hit attack from a random monster is enough supposed to kill you. The bosses are so hard you'll be forced to wander around and spend some time battling led there by the plot without grinding a handful of levels on weaker monsters just to level up in order to beat them, and they still take ''hours'' to beat. Made ''will'' land you into encounters where a generic enemy will kill your party before you even worse by get to attack it. 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. Oh, and don't even ask about Sailor Mercury's chapter.EvilCounterpart ''twice''.

Before she is weakened in a cutscene, her offense and defense stats are actually higher than Demon Apsu's, and her speed stat means that she'll attack first and wipe out your party before it gets the chance to attack. After that, she is fought as a normal boss.

* GratuitousJapanese: The Ginzuishou and Barazuishou are used for majority of the game (yet get 'properly' translated as the Silver Crystal and Rose Crystal, respectively, in Chapter 5) and Nergal's 'Ma...' is kept. During the end of Mars' adventure in Nepal, her text says 'Sonna...' (No way).
