[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pgsm_moon_7594.jpg]]
->Portrayed by: '''Miyuu Sawai'''

* {{Adorkable}}
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler: Princess Serenity]] has this with regard to Endymion.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Initially, with Mamoru.
* BlessedWithSuck: Even more so after we find out the truth about Serenity.
* TheChick: More so than any of the other girls, as per all the incarnations of the characters.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DarkAndTroubledPast: More like a [[spoiler: Dark and Troubled Past Life as Princess Serenity, who destroyed the Moon Kingdom and the Earth Kingdom when Endymion died trying to protect her.]]
* TheDitz
* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails
* IdiotHero
* LightIsNotGood: [[spoiler: As Serenity.]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: [[spoiler: Serenity, whose response to the death of Endymion is to ''destroy the world''.]]
* MythologyGag: [[MeaningfulName Usagi's name]] translates to ''Rabbit of the Moon''. The show does not shy away from lampshading this as much as possible, from Usagi's room full of rabbit-themed items, a Sailor Rabbit costume, etc.
* PluckyGirl
* StarCrossedLovers: With Mamoru, much more so in this version than in the anime and manga.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: Serenity]], who has a tendency to show up after the five Senshi combined have trouble taking down a youma after numerous tries, and proceeds to one-shot it.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl- Girly-girl to Makoto's tomboy, and also girly-girl to Rei's tomboy ([[MythologyGag with whom it's usually the opposite]]).
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Mamoru. It may seem like a ForegoneConclusion if you've seen the anime, but one of the particular areas where PGSM diverges has to do with their relationship. [[spoiler: But TheyDo anyway, even getting married in an extra episode.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:In the finale, Usagi ends up destroying the planet, though it's not permanent.]]

!!'''Makoto Kino - Sailor Jupiter'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pgsm_jupi_3077.jpg]]

* ChefOfIron
* GreenThumb / PetalPower: ''Flower Hurricane''.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: [[BladeOnAStick Jupiter Spear]].

* TakingYouWithMe: As a nod to Jupiter's HeroicSacrifice in the anime, Makoto turns herself into a lightning rod to attack a Metallia-possessed youma. Fortunately, Makoto recovers this time.

!!'''Minako Aino - Sailor V/Sailor Venus'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pgsm_venu_1231.jpg]]
->Portrayed by: '''Ayaka Komatsu'''

* ActionGirl
* TheArtifact: Sailor Venus' hair ribbon. It ''was'' fashionable when the manga was published, but by the time of this series it remained only because Sailor Venus without a ribbon in her hair wouldn't look like Sailor Venus.
* BrokenAce
* BrokenBird
* CastingGag / MythologyGag: In the anime, Minako is noted for speaking SurprisinglyGoodEnglish. Ayaka Komatsu, Minako's actress, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTijD8KNDPw can speak and sing English very well]].
* {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}/{{Muscles Are Meaningless}}: True to her anime and manga counterparts, the petite, delicate-looking Minako can perform superhuman feats of athleticism, even while {{depowered}}. In the final act, Minako stares down a youma and sends it smashing into a concret column with ''one kick'', then scolds her bodyguards for not doing their jobs.
* {{Expy}}: Somewhat...she acts more like one of the Outer Senshi than she does the original Minako.
* GoodIsNotNice: As the leader of the Sailor Senshi with a [[IllGirl limited amount of time]] to fight the Dark Kingdom, she takes her mission to prevent the fall of the Moon Kingdom extremely seriously...which means she is confrontational, condescending, and distant towards the other Inner Senshi, whom she feels are too idealistic about their roles as the guardians of the world.
* TheHero
* IdolSinger: While the original Minako dreamed of becoming one, in ''PGSM'' she actually ''is'' one.
* IllGirl
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Venus Dagger.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At times Minako can act like a bitch, particularly towards Rei. Her intentions, however, are good.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
** [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: After [[spoiler: the world is restored after Princess Serenity destroys it]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue oni to Rei's red oni.
* TheStoic
** NotSoStoic: Sure, this Minako may act more serious than usual due the circumstances, but she's still an hypercompetitive prankster at the heart, even [[ItMakesSenseInContext roping Rei into playing the part of a magical unicorn]] [[ItAmusedMe out of boredom]].
* StepfordSmiler: Being an IdolSinger, she has to put on a light-hearted, happy-go-lucky facade for the public. She is much colder and more cynical once she's out of the public eye.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly girl to Rei's tomboy. [[MythologyGag It's usually the opposite]].
* WhipItGood: Her Love-Me Chain.

[[folder:Villains]]

!!The Youma
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* PeopleInRubberSuits

!!The Shitennou
* AntiVillain: As with the original, the Shitennou were originally servants of Prince Endymion who were brainwashed by Queen Beryl. [[spoiler: This is taken further than in the anime and manga; like the Senshi, they begin recovering memories of their "past lives" partway through the story, which causes them to question their devotion to Beryl.]]
* FourIsDeath: Even explicitly refer to the trope by calling them "The Shitennou."
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Although considerably less "quirky" than they were in the anime.

!!!Jadeite
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Seems to have a thing for Beryl.
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* MoreThanMindControl: Even after the memories of their past lives start returning, Jadeite remains totally loyal to Beryl. [[spoiler: It sticks ''even after she removes the curse'' in the final episode.]]

!!!Nephrite
* AdaptationDyeJob: He's a redhead here as opposed to the brunette that he was in the manga and both anime adaptations.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:After Princess Serenity's reawakening.]]
* FieryRedhead: The most hotheaded of the Shitennou.
* HairTriggerTemper: Towards everyone and everything, regardless of whether someone is nice to him or not.
* TheUnfavorite: Beryl doesn't particularly favor any of the Shitennou, especially when all of them except Jadeite are revealed to have their own agendas, but it's pretty clear that she doesn't care for Nephrite at all going by her attitude. [[spoiler:She takes it a step further by offing him in front of everyone purely to show Mamoru what will happen if he doesn't surrender.]]

!!!Zoisite
* AdaptationDyeJob: He's got white hair hear as opposed to the blond hair he had in the manga and both anime adaptations.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler: After his memories of the past life return]].
* ElegantClassicalMusician: A male version of the trope.
* MusicalAssassin: At one point, he has a Youma sing a work of music he's written called "Requiem for a Princess," designed to harm any girls who hear it who consider themselves "princesses." Even after that, his music seems to have certain magical powers [[spoiler: such as forcing the other Shitennou to recall their past-life memories]].
* MysticalWhiteHair: For some reason, he got Kunzite's hair color from the manga.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Zoisite is the only one of the Shitennou that tries to act for the good of the other Shitennou and his former Master Endymion as a result of regaining his memories. It puts him at odds with everyone else, much to his dismay.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He doesn't want Mamoru and Usagi to get together for fear of what she did in the past.


!!!Kunzite
* AmnesiacDissonance: Begins as a normal human with no memory of his evildoings, who initially befriends Usagi and Mamoru. When he reawakens, he seems to view his human form with disdain.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Kunzite holds no loyalty to Beryl and acts on his own from the moment his memories are awakened.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: Had short hair in his human form; it becomes long when he reawakens as Kunzite.
* TheStarscream: He was the one Shitennou Beryl/Metallia deemed dangerous enough to need a complete memory wipe. When he's finally awakened, Beryl almost instantly regrets it.
* WakeUpCallBoss: In his initial appearance.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants the world not to blow up from an emotional mess. His methods of trying to avoid that happening are questionable, but it's hard not to sympathize with him.

!!Beryl
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Her main motivation in the latter half of the series is her unrequited feelings for Endymion and jealousy toward Usagi.
* AntiVillain: Compared to [[spoiler: Princess Serenity, anyway. She actually wants to ''protect'' the Earth - even if it's only so that she can rule it]].
* TheDragon: To Queen Metaria.
* [[spoiler: FaceDeathWithDignity]]: Her fate in the final episodes.
* FieryRedhead

!!Mio Kuroki
* AlphaBitch
* IdolSinger: Set up as a rival to Minako, [[spoiler: probably because she's the only Senshi who sees through Mio right from the beginning]].
* ManipulativeBitch
* TheMole: Along with trying to sabotage Usagi's reputation, she was basically created to keep an eye on her for Beryl.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Several of her schemes involve feigning innocence and cluelessness.
* PsychoticSmirk: Seems to have a permanent smirk on her face.
* SmugSnake
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Her guise is to pretend to be Usagi's friend, although it's obvious at least from her second appearance that she has no intention of truly being friends.

!!Queen Metaria
* BiggerBad
* {{Expy}}: Metaria is more like Chaos in the anime than the original Metaria, being more of an energy force behind evil in the world than an individual, sentient being. [[spoiler: Unlike Chaos, though, Metaria can be defeated]].
* TheManBehindTheMan: Though less the case than in the original; Beryl and the Shitennou seem aware of Metaria's evil and destruction potential [[spoiler: to the point that they actually seem to be working against it by the final episodes]].
* UltimateEvil
