Portrayed by: Rika Izumi (aka Chisaki Hama)

  • Action Girl
  • Adorkable / Moe: The show's best example.
  • Berserk Button: Being ignored as Dark Mercury.
  • Beta Couple: With human!Nephrite. Their arc was left unresolved.
    • This begins during the Dark Mercury arc, where she patches up his cape after he is punished for failures, though it is somewhat undercut by her calling him pathetic.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: During the Dark Mercury arc.
  • Catchphrase: Ami wags her index finger and remarks, "It's useless to run away!" She also uses this as Dark Mercury.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: In episode 16, Ami gets jealous of Naru because of how close she is to Usagi.
  • Cool Sword: Ami used a variety of water and ice-based swords throughout the series.
  • Covert Pervert
  • Dark Magical Girl: During the Dark Mercury arc.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Her song Mi Amor is notable for its Spanish verse and lively Latino-inspired melody.
  • The Heart: She often keeps the group knit together, and only after she makes a Face–Heel Turn do the others realize they were neglecting her and their friendship.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Brought to light during the Dark Mercury arc, the first thing Ami does with her dark powers is brainwash her class into becoming her friends.
  • Image Song: Mi Amor and Promise. The latter reflects Ami's somber personality.
  • Infinity+1 Sword: Mercury Sword.
  • Ironic Echo: "It's useless to run away."
  • Kill It with Ice: Mercury Aqua Blizzard.
  • Making a Splash: Mercury Aqua Mist, Mercury Aqua Cyclone, Mercury Aqua Storm and Shine Aqua Illusion.
  • More Than Mind Control: Dark Mercury is initially unable to be purified by the Silver Crystal not only because of Metaria's power, but because of her underlying resentment that her friends will never spend time with her due to being wrapped up in other issues.
  • Mythology Gag: Ami uses dowsing to track down a youma hiding in the forest. This ability was straight from the manga that wasn't used in the anime.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: During the Dark Mercury arc, she won't attack Usagi at school because she enjoys school too much to disrupt it.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl
  • The Smart Girl
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Dark Mercury is considerably more powerful than she was before her corruption, to the point where she is almost able to kill Sailor Moon, but not as powerful as Mercury after her "activation" as a Senshi shortly after returning to normal.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: In her transformed state.

    Villains 

The Youma

The Shitennou

  • Anti-Villain: As with the original, the Shitennou were originally servants of Prince Endymion who were brainwashed by Queen Beryl. 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.
  • Four Is Death: Even explicitly refer to the trope by calling them "The Shitennou."
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: Although considerably less "quirky" than they were in the anime.

Jadeite

Nephrite

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's a redhead here as opposed to the brunette that he was in the manga and both anime adaptations.
  • Brought Down to Normal: After Princess Serenity's reawakening.
  • Butt Monkey: He's never successful at anything.
  • Fiery Redhead: The most hotheaded of the Shitennou.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Towards everyone and everything, regardless of whether someone is nice to him or not.
  • The Unfavorite: 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. 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

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's got white hair hear as opposed to the blond hair he had in the manga and both anime adaptations.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: After his memories of the past life return.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: A male version of the trope.
  • Musical Assassin: 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 such as forcing the other Shitennou to recall their past-life memories.
  • Mystical White Hair: For some reason, he got Kunzite's hair color from the manga.
  • Token Good Teammate: 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.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He doesn't want Mamoru and Usagi to get together for fear of what she did in the past.

Kunzite

  • Amnesiac Dissonance: 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.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Kunzite holds no loyalty to Beryl and acts on his own from the moment his memories are awakened.
  • Power Makes Your Hair Grow: Had short hair in his human form; it becomes long when he reawakens as Kunzite.
  • The Starscream: 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.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: In his initial appearance.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: 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

Mio Kuroki

  • Affably Evil
  • Alpha Bitch
  • Came Back Strong: In the special episodes, she comes back to life and gains power of her own, even if said powers are weak compared to what Beryl used to be capable of.
  • Disney Death: Appears to explode into black petals when Metaria!Endymion cuts her. She comes back strong.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Broadcasts her desire to Take Over the World in the special episodes.
  • Idol Singer: Set up as a rival to Minako, probably because she's the only Senshi who sees through Mio right from the beginning.
  • Manipulative Bitch
  • The Mole: Along with trying to sabotage Usagi's reputation, she was basically created to keep an eye on her for Beryl.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Several of her schemes involve feigning innocence and cluelessness.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Seems to have a permanent smirk on her face.
  • Smug Snake
  • With Friends Like These...: 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

  • Bigger Bad
  • 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. Unlike Chaos, though, Metaria can be defeated.
  • Made of Evil: It's more of an energy source of pure evil than a character.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Though less the case than in the original; Beryl and the Shitennou seem aware of Metaria's evil and destruction potential to the point that they actually seem to be working against it by the final episodes.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Mamoru takes it into his body and tries to get killed before it can possess him. He fails.
  • Ultimate Evil
