* LoveMakesYouCrazy: [[spoiler: Serenity, whose response to the death of Endymion is to ''destroy the world''.]]

* 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.
* 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.]]

* ChefOfIron
* GreenThumb / PetalPower: ''Flower Hurricane''.

->Portrayed by: '''Ayaka Komatsu'''

* ActionGirl
* BrokenAce
* BrokenBird

* {{Expy}}: Somewhat...she acts more like one of the Outer Senshi than she does the original Minako.

** [[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]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly girl to Rei's tomboy.
* 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
* [[spoiler: BroughtDownToNormal]]: After Princess Serenity's reawakening.
* FieryRedhead
* HairTriggerTemper

!!!Zoisite
* 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

!!!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.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: Had short hair in his human form; it becomes long when he reawakens as Kunzite.
* WakeUpCallBoss: In his initial appearance.

!!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
