[[folder:The Sailor Senshi]]
!!'''Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon/Princess Serenity'''
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pgsm_moon_7594.jpg]]
->Portrayed by: '''Miyuu Sawai'''

%%* {{Adorkable}}
%%* 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
%%* CuteButCacophonic
* 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
* ImageSong: ''Here We Go! The Power to Believe'' and ''Over Rainbow Tour'', emphasizing Usagi's upbeat personality.
* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: Serenity, especially when everyone learned of her true nature.]]
* 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.
%%* OdangoHair
%%* 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]]).
* TranquilFury: [[spoiler: Serenity]], which brilliantly overlaps with MeaningfulName.
* 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.]]

->Portrayed by: '''Rika Izumi''' (aka Chisaki Hama)

%%* ActionGirl
%%* {{Adorkable}}
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler: Being ignored as Dark Mercury.]]
* BetaCouple: [[spoiler: With human!Nephrite. Their arc was left unresolved.]]
** This begins during the [[spoiler: Dark Mercury arc,]] where she patches up his cape after he is punished for failures, [[spoiler: though it is somewhat undercut by her calling him pathetic.]]
%%* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: During the Dark Mercury arc.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: Ami wags her index finger and remarks, "It's useless to run away!" [[spoiler: She also uses this as Dark Mercury.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: In episode 16, Ami gets jealous of Naru because of how close she is to Usagi.
* CoolSword: Ami used a variety of water and ice-based swords throughout the series.
%%* CovertPervert
* DarkMagicalGirl: [[spoiler: During the Dark Mercury arc.]]
* GratuitousSpanish: Her song ''Mi Amor'' is notable for its Spanish verse and lively Latino-inspired melody.
* TheHeart: She often keeps the group knit together, and [[spoiler: only after she makes a FaceHeelTurn do the others realize they were neglecting her and their friendship.]]
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Brought to light during the [[spoiler: Dark Mercury arc, the first thing Ami does with her dark powers is brainwash her class into becoming her friends.]]
* ImageSong: ''[[BilingualBonus Mi Amor]]'' and ''Promise''. The latter reflects Ami's somber personality.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Mercury Sword.
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler: "It's useless to run away."]]
* KillItWithIce: ''Mercury Aqua Blizzard''.
* MakingASplash: ''Mercury Aqua Mist'', ''Mercury Aqua Cyclone'', ''Mercury Aqua Storm'' and ''Shine Aqua Illusion''.
%%*{{Moe}}: The show's best example.
* MoreThanMindControl: [[spoiler: 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.]]
* MythologyGag: Ami uses [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dowsing dowsing]] to track down a youma hiding in the forest. This ability was straight from the manga that wasn't used in the anime.
* PragmaticVillainy: During the [[spoiler: Dark Mercury arc]], she won't attack [[spoiler: Usagi]] at school because she enjoys school too much to disrupt it.
%%* ShyBlueHairedGirl
%%* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: 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 [[spoiler: shortly after returning to normal]].
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In her transformed state.

->Portrayed by: '''Keiko Kitagawa'''

%%* ActionGirl
%%* DeadpanSnarker
%%* DefrostingIceQueen
* EmotionlessGirl: Early on Rei seemed cold and emotionless before some [[DefrostingIceQueen character development]].
* FriendToAllChildren: Rei has a soft spot for kids, and she's often seen playing with them in the Hikawa Shrine.
* ImageSong: ''Starry Dawn'' and ''Cherry Blossom Storm'', ballads that reflect Rei's stoicism.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Mars Dagger.
%%* TheLancer
* KillItWithFire: ''Akuryo Taisan'', ''Youma Taisan'' and ''Burning Mandala''.
%%* {{Miko}}
* MythologyGag: In a literal sense. Mars and Venus are lovers in Myth/{{Classical Mythology}}, which is why the Mars and Venus daggers are [[DualWielding used as a pair]] by Rei and Minako in separate incidents.
** Rei's constant search of Minako makes her take over Minako's hobby of ''chasing idol singers''. Her bickering with Minako is very akin to Usagi/Rei's frienship/rivalry in the anime.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her mother died when she was young and grew up resenting her politician father.
%%* RedOniBlueOni: Red oni to Minako's blue oni.
%%* TheStoic
%%* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Minako and Usagi's girly girls. [[MythologyGag It's usually the opposite]].

%%* ActionGirl
%%* [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]
%%* ChefOfIron
* GreenThumb / PetalPower: ''Flower Hurricane''.
* ImageSong: ''Miracle Dance Night'' and ''Lovely Yell'', reminiscent of 70s-80s songs and Mako's boisterous bruiser tendencies.
* InfinityPlusOneSword: [[BladeOnAStick Jupiter Spear]].
* MythologyGag: [[MeaningfulName Makoto's name]] translates to ''Sincerity of Wood''. She is often seen leaning on trees during her debut episode, and later became a staunch defender of the girls.
* PrecisionFStrike: "Don't fuck with me!"
* ShockAndAwe: ''Supreme Thunder'' and ''Jupiter Thunderbolt''.
* ShockwaveStomp: An unnamed ground wave move similar to Sailor Uranus' ''World Shaking'' attack.
* 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.
* TeamMom: She is the most overprotective of the girls.
%%* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Usagi's girly girl.
%%* TransferStudentUniforms

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

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Downplayed example as while her basic nature is intact, elements of the Outer Senshi's personalities and backstories are inserted.
%%* ActionGirl
* TheArtifact: The hair ribbon was a fashion fad during the manga's publication, and was retained in the series since Venus' hair ribbon was her defining accessory. In PGSM, Minako's civilian form preferred caps and cowboy hats instead.
%%* BrokenAce
%%* BrokenBird
* ChildSoldiers: Adopts this mentality in her role as a senshi.
%%* CharacterDeath
* {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}/{{Muscles Are Meaningless}}: True to the anime and manga, the petite, delicate-looking Minako can perform superhuman feats of athleticism, even while {{depowered}}. Twice in the series, Minako (in civilian form) manages to kick a youma, sending him crashing to a solid wall.
* [[spoiler: DeathByAdaptation: She is suffering from a fatal illness in this incarnation and dies off-screen in a failed surgery near the end of the series. She gets better.]]
* 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.
* HandBlast: ''Venus Beam'' and ''Rolling Heart Vibration''.
%%* TheHero
* IdolSinger: While the original Minako dreamed of becoming one, in ''PGSM'' she actually ''is'' one.
* ImageSong: True to her idol persona, Minako has no less than five songs alluding to her singing career and senshi alter-ego.
* IllGirl: [[spoiler: She has some kind of fatal illness.]]
* InfinityPlusOneSword: Venus Dagger.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At times Minako can act like a bitch, particularly towards Rei. Her intentions, however, are good.
** [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: After [[spoiler: the world is restored after Princess Serenity destroys it]].
%%* TheLeader
* TheMentor: To Rei, albeit a poor one due to her condescending attitude.
* 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]].
* NotSoStoic: While Minako may act more serious than usual due the circumstances, she's still a hypercompetitive prankster at heart, even [[ItMakesSenseInContext roping Rei into wearing a full unicorn costume]] [[ItAmusedMe out of boredom]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue oni to Rei's red oni.
* ThePrankster: Despite her condescending nature, Minako's tricks usually catch Rei or Artemis off-guard.
%%* TheStoic
* 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. [[spoiler: This is partially due to her duty as a Senshi and partially due to her illness.]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly girl to Rei's tomboy. [[MythologyGag It's usually the opposite]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Rei, who serves as her second-in-command and {{Foil}}.
* WhipItGood: Her Love-Me Chain.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler: Act 23 states that she had six months to live. Twenty-four episode weeks later..]]

[[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. [[spoiler: Averted in the end, as Beryl cared enough for him to release her curse on him to give him a chance to escape.]]
* 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.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Completely devoted to Beryl.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler: Dies along with Beryl as their lair collapses.]]

!!!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.]]
* ButtMonkey: He's never successful at anything.
* 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. He plays the piano.
* 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.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Her fate in the final episodes[[.
%%* FieryRedhead

!!Mio Kuroki
%%* AffablyEvil
%%* AlphaBitch
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler: 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.]]
* DisneyDeath: Appears to explode into black petals when Metaria!Endymion cuts her. [[spoiler: She comes back strong.]]
* DoNotAdjustYourSet: [[spoiler: Broadcasts her desire to TakeOverTheWorld in the special episodes.]]
* 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
* {{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]].
%%* GreaterScopeVillain
* MadeOfEvil: [[spoiler: It's more of an energy source of pure evil than a character.]]
* 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]].
* SealedEvilInACan: [[spoiler: Mamoru takes it into his body and tries to get killed before it can possess him. He fails.]]
%%* UltimateEvil
