    In General 
  • A Day in the Limelight: Many of them get one or more episodes in '90s anime series where they play a major role.
  • Ascended Extra: Several have a larger role in first season of the '90s anime and/or in the live-action than in the manga.
  • Adapted Out: Almost all of them in the musicals, and several of them the live-action as well.
  • Badass Normal/Heroic Bystander: Despite having no Sailor powers, there are several instances where a civilian chooses to stand up to enemy attacks instead of doing nothing.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: By the final season, you hardly even see any recurring civilians.
  • Demoted to Extra: Even though the civilian cast get a larger role in the '90s anime, their roles are diminished after the first season as the series focuses more and more on the Sailor Guardians.
  • Damsel in Distress/Distressed Dude: So many of them end up as the victim of the week on at least one occasion.
  • Designated Victim: It's amazing how often the villains' target happens to be someone the Sailor Guardians know. Some are victimized more than others, though.
  • Innocent Bystander: Even when they're not the intended victim, they tend to get caught up in things just by being in the area.
  • Muggles: The non-superpowered friends and families of the Sailor Guardians.

Voiced by: Chiyoko Kawashima (original series), Seira Liu (Crystal) (JP), Julie Lemieux (DiC and Cloverway), Nicolas Roye (Viz) (EN), Rogério Jacques (PT), Ana María Grey (LatAm)
Portrayed in PGSM by: Naoki Takeshi

Usagi's little brother who loves to tease and annoy his big sister. Although he seems like an ignorant child sometimes (such as tactlessly kicking Luna across the room when he disliked cats), he can be much smarter than Usagi, due to his better exam results and his good behavior. Shingo also seems to keep up with the latest trends in his age range, which often gets him into trouble with the typical Sailor Moon villains, leaving it up to his dumb sister as Sailor Moon to save him, who he secretly fanboys over.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the '90s anime, his hair is light brown. Crystal keeps it blonde like the manga, though still rather sandy compared to his sister, so he and Usagi have more of a family resemblance in that series.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Can slip into this sometimes, and don't think he won't if it works to his advantage.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Milder version. He can be annoying and nagging, but otherwise is less whiny than other kids like him. Mostly because his sister is more than whiny enough for the both of them and it's often him who's exasperated with her. He provides the trope image for a good reason, though.
  • Art Evolution/I Got Bigger: One of the few characters to visibly age in the '90s anime. The first season drew him the way most children appear in anime. In later appearances he looks more (appropriately) like a preteen and has had something of a growth spurt. This was probably done to make him look older than Chibi-Usa but still younger than Usagi.
  • Ascended Extra: Somewhat in the '90s anime, where he appears in many episodes and gets multiple days in the limelight.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Stands up for Chibiusa when Usagi picks on her. He also tries to protect girls he cares about from enemy attacks.
  • Big Sister Worship: In an odd variation, he regularly criticizes and irritates Usagi as herself, but idolizes her as Sailor Moon. Imagine how he'd react if he found out Usagi and Sailor Moon were the same person.
  • Brainy Brunette: In the '90s anime.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Gets good grades with zero effort and spends the rest of his time playing video games, reading comics, and messing with his sister.
  • Brutal Honesty: Generally he will speak his mind or tell it like it is, and can be pretty tactless about it. Usually at Usagi's expense.
  • Child Prodigy: As indicated above, he gets good grades without any trouble, and he's only about eleven at the start of the series.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He often walks away with some of the best lines when he shows up.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the first season/first episodes of R.
  • Fanboys My Alter Ego: More exactly, he's a Sailor Moon fanboy.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Usagi's foolish.
  • Heroic Bystander: For a preteen, Shingo has some serious cojones. Aside from his brief fear of cats, he rarely loses his head when he ends up in the middle of weirdness Usagi attracts, and once even tried to fight a villain head on to protect Ami, buying enough time for the rest of the Sailor Guardians to find them.
  • Insufferable Genius: He's a great student, his sister is a Book Dumb Ditz and he won't let her forget it.
  • In the Name of the Moon: A somewhat parody of one where he imitates the Sailor Guardians at a virtual reality arcade, calling himself "Sneakers Shingo" ("Super Sammy" in the English dub) and even quoting Sailor Moon's phrase "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!"
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be snarky and ruffle Usagi's feathers, but don't think that he doesn't care about his family and friends.
    • Jerkass Fašade: Certain materials suggest that he's hard on Usagi simply because that's just his job as her little brother, and he's trying to toughen her up to not be such a crybaby.
  • Modesty Towel: For some reason, he wears it like a girl in the Hot Springs Episode of the series. And he's pretty embarrassed about the situation. When Usagi teases him about it, he steals hers.
  • Platonic Life Partners: With the '90s anime-only character Mika. They're childhood best friends with a lot affection, but Ship Tease aside, there's no actual romance between them and it irks Shingo when people think there is.
  • The Prankster: Towards Usagi, leading the pair into a war of pranks around their house.
  • Precocious Crush: Has a huge crush on Ami in one episode of the '90s anime.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive to his father's manly (as tough and jerky as he acts in the '90s anime, his focus episodes show that he's really the more sensitive of the two).
  • Tiny Schoolboy: Was the (sort of) nice guy and adorkable type, before he grew.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is terrified of cats in the '90s anime, due to an traumatic incident when he was a toddler. As a result, a whole first season episode is dedicated to Usagi trying to get Luna in his good graces, and after that it's never mentioned again.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Kaori Moriwaka


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair in the manga is either bright pink or bluish-purple. Both anime series settled on the latter.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In the re-released manga, Kenji and Ikuko refer to each other as papa and mama. To be fair, in some older anime and manga, parents refer to each other not by their names but by their positions in the family (i.e., Kyo's parents in The King of Fighters: KYO and Haruto's parents in Haunted Junction.) The joke went Lost in Translation.
  • Education Mama: While nowhere near as bad as Minako's mother in Codename: Sailor V, to the point that Minako lists her "hag of a mom" as one of her dislikes, she's still this, and it's a Justified Trope when you remember how completely unmotivated Usagi is when it comes to school work; of course Ikuko's going to be mad when her eldest daughter is always bringing home 35s and 20s on her tests.
  • Good Parents: She and Kenji don't have a big role, but they are portrayed as typical loving parents to their children.
  • Happily Married
  • House Wife
  • Let Her Grow Up, Dear: Whereas Kenji is overprotective of their daughter, Ikuko is quite all right with her having a boyfriend to bring over for a meal.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Averted. Usagi was reincarnated, so the Tsukinos are her biological family.
  • Open-Minded Parent: In relationship subjects.
  • Parents in Distress: Was attacked by Hawk's Eye in Super S.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is not nearly as long as her daughter's, but it is still very long.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: The manga drops a hint of this towards the end. When Usagi leaves (to battle Sailor Galaxia, but obviously she can't say that), Ikuko says that she has a feeling that Usagi may not come back, as she looks up to the sky cradling Luna in her arms.
  • Sleeping Single: She and her husband sleep in separate beds.
  • Unnamed Parent: Canadian dubs only, where she is merely identified as "Serena's mom". Later subverted when the Cloverway dub once refers to her as Ikuko.
  • What Happened to the Mouse??: Averted, as she is one of the only supporting characters to appear throughout all five major arcs. Though in Sailor Moon S, she only appeared in the manga, not the anime.
  • Women Are Wiser: She tends to be more levelheaded and down-to-earth than her husband, who is prone to overreacting and jumping to conclusions. Their children somewhat invert this, though.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Though more tempery than the standard, she is hinted to have Kenji-papa very whipped in The '90s anime.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Portrayed in PGSM by: Ryuuta Tasaki

  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: Mild version: In the recently re-released manga, Kenji and Ikuko refer to each other as papa and mama (although sometimes Truth in Television as once they become parents couples may often find themselves calling each another "Mom" and "Dad" or some variation).
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Although Usagi's entire family was Demoted to Extra, her mother and brother still made token appearances later in the series, but her father's last appearance was only in the second season.
  • Good Parents: He and Ikuko don't have a big role, but they are portrayed as typical loving parents to their children.
  • Happily Married
  • Henpecked Husband: In The '90s anime, by his own admission.
  • Heroic Bystander: In the Hot Springs Episode when the Tsukinos are on vacation, he attempts to defend his family against the Monster of the Week.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Live-action only; even has his face obscured by a camera at Usagi's wedding.
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: Though he doesn't seem to like Mamoru, the two appear to be quite similar in many respects. In fact, Usagi considers her ideal man someone who is that much like her father.
  • Megane
  • Men Can't Keep House: He tries to help out where he can, but things like cooking he cannot even do.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Averted. Usagi was reincarnated, so the Tsukinos are her biological family.
  • Not So Different: Initially suspicious of Mamoru, but some comments imply he was very similar in his youth. It might be that this is what actually bothers him.
  • Overprotective Dad: He nearly drives off the road on learning that Usagi is dating. And this is before he learns of the age difference.
  • Papa Wolf: The few times he was under attack, he immediately leapt to his family's defense.
  • Salaryman: In most continuities, his job leaves him plenty time for his family, but in the live-action, he has such a busy, salaryman-like work life that he only even appears once.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The manly to his son's sensitive.
  • Sleeping Single: He and his wife sleep in separate beds.
  • Standard '50s Father: Doesn't display all the standard traits, but is one nonetheless.
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Unnamed Parent: Canadian dubs only, where he is merely identified as "Serena's dad".
  • Weight Woe: In one of the short stories in the manga(when Usagi and Chibi-Usa get cavities) Kenji is saddened to learn he's been gaining weight from his wife's cooking.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Chieco Kawabe

Usagi's original friend from her junior high school who is friendly, sweet and always by Usagi's side. She is featured more in the '90s anime than in the manga, given new character arcs that weren't in the manga, such as falling in love with Nephrite. She is also very popular in school with the students because her mother owns a jewellery shop, but her friendship with Usagi drifts away and becomes closer friends with Umino, before being written out of the story completely.
  • Accent Adaptation: Her original English dub counterpart "Molly" has a thick New York accent.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: The dynamic with Nephrite and Naru in The '90s anime. Naru knows he isn't a good person and is aware that he has tried to use her, particularly since he tells her as much. Yet she admits to a worried Usagi that she can't help loving him. Then Nephrite turns out to not be a monster... only to die in her arms.
  • Ascended Extra: In the first season of the '90s anime and the live-action, she has a bigger role than in the manga.
  • Badass Normal: Despite how often she gets targeted by the villains, Naru has quite a number of achievements listed in the "Moments of Awesome" page.
  • Beta Couple/Official Couple: In the '90s anime with Umino, once they get their Relationship Upgrade.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead to Usagi's blonde and Yumiko and Kuri's brunettes.
  • Break the Cutie: The deal with Nephrite sends her into an Heroic B.S.O.D. and it takes her a while to get better.
  • Damsel in Distress/Designated Victim: She needs to be saved from a Monster of the Week attack fairly regularly.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the end of the Alien arc of season R. And she and Umino were still luckier than Yumiko and Kuri, who never made it past the original series. Averted in the live-action. It's as if she knew that she was gonna be replaced as Usagi's BFF and struggled not to let that happen.
  • Expy: Of Hikaru from Codename: Sailor V. Both are the Muggle Best Friend of the main character.
  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted, she's more of The Cutie, though she did have two or three moments.
  • From Dress to Dressing: Provides the trope image. After Nephrite is attacked in the '90s anime, she uses a piece of her pajamas to make a bandage for him. After he dies and disappears, she keeps the bandage until giving it to Umino, symbolizing how she is moving on to him.
  • Genre Savvy: After being attacked so much, she is wary when she is invited to an audition in season two. And she was right because at the audition, she was attacked again.
  • Hair Decorations: Her green hairbow, especially in her school uniform. She sometimes changes color hairbows, depending on her wardrobe like a red hairbow as you can see a bit from the picture.
  • Heroic Bystander: In both the first series and S, trying to get the energy-sucking plant out of Nephrite despite being affected by them herself and then trying to protect Umino from a Monster of the Week which was after his Pure Heart.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Usagi, before she gets demoted to extra.
  • The Idiot from Osaka: Averted; she's generally well-adjusted and levelheaded, especially when compared to Usagi.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: Lampshaded by her last name. It becomes a Brooklyn accent in the original English dub.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Doesn't know of Usagi's identity as Sailor Moon, though she may have become aware of it in the R season. At the very least, she knows she is part of something important and that Usagi doesn't want Naru to ask what. Which Naru accepts.
  • Morality Pet: In the '90s anime, she becomes one for Nephrite, triggering his Redemption Equals Death.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Usagi.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Worn as her casual clothes in the '90s anime.
  • Second Love: For Umino.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: It is heavily implied during R/the Black Moon arc that Naru had figured out Usagi's identity as Sailor Moon since she knows that Usagi is part of something unusual and important, but that Usagi doesn't want her to ask about it, so she complies as to not put pressure on her.
  • Social Circle Filler: In the manga and Crystal. Less so in the '90s anime and the live-action where her role is increased and lengthened.
  • Spoiled Sweet: According to the first episode of Crystal, Naru is intelligent, popular, and has wealthy parents, and she's nice and down to Earth.
  • Those Two Guys: She and Umino become this after the other Sailor Guardians start showing up.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly girl to Usagi's tomboy, despite Usagi not being that boyish.
  • Tsundere: Very light Type B, towards Umino.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Being best friends with Sailor Moon and a victim or witness of so many attacks, she has become this regarding the Sailor Guardians and youma.
  • Weirdness Magnet

He's the tousle-haired friend of Usagi and Naru who is a student at their junior high school. He is a bespectacled nerd who is a goofball and a clever student with excellent grades. He nursed a crush on Usagi at first, and tried several ways to impress her (such as memorably trying to be a bad boy), but then grew out of it much later.
  • Adorkable: His nerdy-like behaviour and his deep analyzing on newcomers as well as embarrassing Naru with his public declarations of his love for her when they start to date qualify for this.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Both anime series give him brown hair. It's blonde in the manga.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • Ascended Extra: Like Naru, his role is somewhat bigger in the '90s anime.
  • Beta Couple/Official Couple: In the '90s anime with Naru, once they get their Relationship Upgrade.
  • Bishōnen: Apparently, Umino is a handsome young man when he takes off his glasses. You wouldn't believe he can remove them, seeming how it's like they're stuck to his face.
  • Brainy Brunette: In the anime.
  • The Chew Toy
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: After he starts dating Naru, he acts this way about her to a mild extent.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the end of the first season/first episodes of R.
  • Distressed Dude
  • Dogged Nice Guy: For Usagi. By the time he falls for Naru though, he drops the most annoying traits.
  • Dragged into Drag: By Naru in episode 7 of the '90s anime.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Parodied in Super S, when he attempts it with milk shakes. ChibiUsa's grossed out face says all.
  • Expy: In the forerunner series, Codename: Sailor V, Minako had an otaku pal named Amano who is identical to him, though Amano is much more proactive and able to aide Sailor V on several occasions.
  • Extraverted Nerd: Indubitably a nerd, but very outgoing and talkative with shades of the Casanova Wannabe (although this aspect disappears after he gets a girlfriend).
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Early on, the girls only tolerate his annoying ways, though they let him hang around with them anyway. In the '90s anime, they warm up to him a little once he starts dating Naru. Played straight in the Manga and Crystal, every time he shows up onscreen has at least one person getting angry at his mere presence.
  • Gossipy Hens: Male version.
  • Heroic Bystander: In both the first series and S, he tries to defend Naru from a Monster of the Week. The second time, the monster was specifically targeting him.
  • Innocently Insensitive: For example, when Usagi and Umino went to visit Naru after after Nephrite's death, Umino casually said, "I thought you didn't go to school because you were sick, but I see it was just heartbreak," resulting in Usagi hitting him. Once they gone out, he didn't take (or didn't seem anyway) into consideration Naru's feelings. Later on however, he hinted to have felt bad because of this trope. Thanks to Character Development, he became a bit less of this trope later on.
    • In the same scene, he tried to comfort Naru ... by mentioning Nephrite's disappearance.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: A nerdy/bespectacled/non-athletic guy whose close friends all seem to be girls. He's into things like gossip, doesn't hide his romantic notions and at one point in the '90s anime he even dons a pink dress.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All
  • Last Name Basis: Umino is his surname, but that's what everyone calls him.
  • Messy Hair: Not like bedhead-messy, but his hair doesn't seem to lay down.
  • Mr. Exposition: Early on, he would often be the one to talk about new events, people and places that would turn out to be related to the adventure of the week.
  • Nerd Glasses: Ones that engulf the entire top-half of his face.
  • The One Guy: Of Usagi's circle of friends at the start of the series.
  • Otaku: He's called this several times by other characters.
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Second Love: For Naru, who also was his second love, since Umino had a crush on Usagi at first.
  • Social Circle Filler: Like Naru, he ends up being this in the manga and Crystal.
  • Teen Genius: So much that he is unhappy when he only gets a 95 on a test.
  • Those Two Guys: He and Naru become this after the other Sailor Guardians start showing up.
  • Tiny Schoolboy
  • Unfazed Everyman: To a somewhat lesser extent than Naru.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Tomoko Otakara


  • Adapted Out: Averted in all adaptations (even the musicals), making her the only civilian to appear in every version of the series.
  • Ascended Extra: When you think about it, she had a much bigger role early in The '90s anime than in the manga. Then after the Alien Arc of R, she was Put on a Bus. She has a valid reason for disappearing once the girls moved on to 9th grade.
  • Brainy Brunette: Light brown in the Crystal anime and she is a teacher, after all.
  • Butt Monkey: A frequent youma victim alongside Naru. And even beyond that, there's the incident where she thinks she is Defiled Forever.
  • Christmas Cake: And how.
  • Damsel in Distress/Designated Victim: Like Naru, she was a frequent victim of attacks by the Dark Kingdom during the first season. Her obsession with finding a husband made her an easy target.
  • Defiled Forever: This is what she believes when the second episode of The '90s anime had Umino (under a monster's influence) flip her skirt up revealing her smiley face panties. She started crying that she wouldn't be able to get married now.
  • Fiery Redhead: Has auburn hair in the 90s anime with a temper to match.
  • First-Name Basis: Her students call her Haruna-sensei. The first English dub switched it to make Haruna her last name, though.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: The above incident revealed a smiley face on it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Very strict and known to blow her top if her students do poorly or break rules, but cares for all of them and just wants them to succeed.
  • Panty Shot: See Defiled Forever.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Sensei-chan: Frequently acts young for her age and engages in doing rather childish things.
  • Stern Teacher: Was very exigent towards Usagi, but genuinely cared for her and her friends.
  • Team Mom
  • Temporal Theme Naming: Meta-example. Naoko Takeuchi's other series Codename: Sailor V, The Cherry Project and P.Q. Angels have characters named Natsuna Sakurada, Akina Sakurada and Fuyuna Sakurada. Collectively, they are named after the four seasons.
  • Two-Teacher School: She's basically the one teacher we get to meet during her run in the series.
  • You Look Familiar: Her sister was Chieri's teacher in Naoko's previous manga The Cherry Project. In addition, Chiyoko Kawashima, who voices Haruna, also voices Sailor Pluto and Shingo Tsukino.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Masaya Kikawada

  • Ascended Extra: A bit, in the live-action. He even gets to propose to Makoto in that continuity.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Usagi. When she's having a problem, she turns to him for advice (such as what to do about Naru falling in love with the enemy).
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In the recently re-released manga, Motoki's nickname is translated as 'bro'. This gets incredibly awkward later on, when Makoto refers to him as 'the bro at the Game Center.' Uhh....
  • Chubby Chaser: Somewhat. In the anime he told Usagi he found chubby girls cute. She saw this as an excuse to stop dieting and go back to her regular eating habits, until Luna clarified that he said "chubby", not "fat".
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Unazuki's foolish.
  • Green Eyes
  • I Will Wait for You: When Reika decides to go to study in Africa, he decides to wait for her for as long as she is gone. The second time she leaves for ten years and he is still willing to wait.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Despite Makoto and Usagi's crushes on him, it is established that they are only younger sisters to him (except in the live-action, where Makoto is his love interest).
  • Men Can't Keep House: His apartment is in a terrible state.
  • Muggle Best Friend: In the live-action to Mamoru, as well as being Makoto's Muggle Love Interest.
  • Nice Guy
  • Non-Action Guy: Even by civilian standards. At least Umino, Kenji, Shingo, Yuuichirou and Rei's grandfather all have their moments of Badass Normal or Heroic Bystander.
  • Official Couple: With Reika in the anime and manga, or with Makoto in the live-action.
  • Satellite Character
  • Secret Keeper: In the manga and the live-action.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Mamoru's Manly Man.
  • They Do: He and Makoto in Special Act of the Live Action version.
  • Trash of the Titans: His apartment, in The '90s anime.
  • Turtle Power: In the live-action, he has a pet turtle named Kamekichi and seems to be generally obsessed with them, owning lots of turtle-themed accessories and bonding with other turtle owners.

  • All Girls Like Ponies: In her final anime appearance, she is revealed to enjoy horseback riding and briefly bonds with Chibiusa over a fondness for horses.
  • Art Shift: In The '90s anime, her eyes had a distinctively different appearance from the rest of the cast. That changed when she returned in season four.
  • Brainy Brunette: In The '90s anime.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Usagi and the other girls.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Look carefully in the third episode of Crystal. You can see her and Unazuki standing in the background.

  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: In the manga, Reika was really into gemstones, as she studies mineralogy at KO University. While she doesn't drape herself in jewels, she does wear rather stylish earrings and necklaces tastefully. A caption refers to her as a "high maintenance $6900 Versace queen."
  • Long Distance Relationship: With Motoki.
  • Official Couple: With Motoki. Except in the live-action, where it's not certain she even exists.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Both the manga and Crystal depict her as wearing a lot of pink.
  • Put on a Bus: Twice
  • Rapunzel Hair: Like several other female characters, her hair is waist-length or longer.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Manga illustrations show her with pinkish or purple hair. In early 90's anime appearances, her hair was brown, but in the fourth season it became purple with no explanation, yet didn't match the manga. Her eyes also changed from a light blue to bright purple.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Anime Chinese Girl: Dresses as one, her family owns a Chinese restaurant.
  • Art Evolution: As with Shingo, Momoko visually ages a little over the course of her appearances. In R, she appears around six or seven like Chibi-Usa, while in S and Super S, she's taller and has a visible bustline. Her bangs and side strands also went from being straight to curly. These changes in her look match up with her manga appearance.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In an episode of the R season, when she's accidentally infused with Black Energy. Chibi-Usa manages to debrainwash her, though.
  • Cool Big Sis: Acts like this towards Chibi-Usa.
  • Odango
  • Series Continuity Error: Her hair color is switched from brown to purple in Super S without any explanation, and her eyes go from being a light blue to an identical shade of purple.
  • You Gotta Have Purple Hair

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai (original series), Daisuke Sakaguchi (Crystal) (JP), Irwin Daayan (LatAm, original series)

  • Big Brother Worship: They're not actually related, but he really admires Mamoru, who is an upperclassman at his school.
  • Continuity Cameo: His single appearance in The '90s anime.
  • Demoted to Extra: He appears a number of times in the manga, beginning in the Black Moon arc, but only appears once very briefly in The '90s anime in the final season, and even then, his name only appears in the credits.
  • Last Name Basis: He's usually just called Asanuma.
  • Paranormal Investigation: He's a member of the Sci-Fi Club at his school, to which he reports any UFO sightings. In fact, after witnessing Mamoru healing himself and Luna talking to Usagi, he thinks that their group might be aliens.
  • Secret Keeper: In the manga, after he reveals to Makoto what he saw, she confesses the Sailor Guardians' identities to him and even kisses him on the forehead.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Has this relationship with Mamoru.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Often seen wearing the tie, jacket and dress shirt of his school uniform.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Averted. Like Ikuko Tsukino but unlike the rest of the civilian cast, he actually appeared as late as Stars.

  • Adaptation Distillation: Rei's grandfather is an entirely different character in the manga, compared to The '90s anime. In the manga he's a slightly younger grandfather, taller, and when he is in a story he offers key insight to Rei's history and personality, and also suggests that he knows she's destined to do great things in some way, but not at that shrine.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • Ascended Extra: Somewhat, early in The '90s anime.
  • Badass Grandpa: Manages to fend off Zoisite's attack in episode 30 of the 90s anime. Zoisite is appropriately shocked by this: "I thought you were just an old man, but...you're good!" Oh, and he survived falling off the shrine roof.
  • Bald of Awesome: In The '90s anime, he's bald, and as described above, he lets his awesomeness show when Zoicite attacks him.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: When he's attacked by Zoicite in The '90s anime, this tiny and apparently feeble old man fends him off at first.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The little to Yuuichirou's big.
  • Bi the Way: Rei remarks at one point while complaining about his antics that "He'll hit on anyone regardless of gender".
  • Dirty Old Man: The '90s anime only. He keeps embarrassing Rei whenever he tries to pick up girls and convince them to become Mikos at Hikawa Jinja.
  • Dirty Old Monk: He's definitely not above making lewd remarks towards his granddaughter's friends, among others.
  • Invisible Grandparent:
    • In the live-action, possibly. It's not certain he exists in this continuity, though if he doesn't, that begs the question of who is Rei's guardian and the shrine's priest.
    • In Sailor Moon Crystal, he is sometimes named by his granddaughter and/or her friends, but so far he hasn't appeared on-screen.
  • Enemy Within: Jiji, one of the Seven Great Youma.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: Provides the trope image.
  • Nice Guy: In the manga.
  • Parental Substitute: Raised Rei after his daughter/her mom died of illness.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: In the anime.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Implied in the manga. Watching Rei grow up and from the way she instinctively interacted with Phobos and Deimos, he understands that Rei has some kind of grand destiny ahead of her that doesn't involve him or the shrine.
  • Those Two Guys: With Yuuichirou, in The '90s anime.
  • Trickster Mentor: To Yuuichirou, in The '90s anime.

  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Kakeru. In the manga version of the Princess Kaguya story, she's already pregnant with their child when she goes to space.
  • Closer to Earth: She's very logical and mature, in contrast to the more "dreamy" Kakeru.
  • Hot Scientist
  • Meaningful Name: The "take" ("bamboo") and "Hime" ("princess") parts of her name are references to the original Princess Kaguya myth.

    Naruru Osaka and Ruruna Kobe 

Naruru Osaka and Ruruna Kobe


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Naruru is Naru's younger sister, though we only see them together for two panels.
  • Brand X: Ruruna is an avid buyer of "Channel" brand items, and Naruru is an avid buyer of "Guccicci" brand items.
  • Buffy Speak: The two of them use words like "Haggened" or "Frappaccinoed" to abbreviate that they got ice cream or frappuccinos, among other things.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: The two of them like to dress up as Sailor Soldiers.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Naruru Osaka's from Osaka. Ruruna Kobe's from Kobe.
  • Fangirl: Both of them are fans of Sailor Moon.
  • Fiery Redhead: Naruru. But in an energetic way.
  • Genki Girl: Both of them.
  • Valley Girl: Their dialogue is often translated this way, though technically they're actually kogals.
  • Younger Than They Look: The two of them are supposed to be Chibi-Usa's classmates, but they dress in short skirts, high heels, and have clearly visible cleavage. They're also both much taller than Chibi-Usa is.
