  • Adaptational Heroism: In The '90s anime, Brainwashed and Crazy Endymion acts as a Noble Demon who often comes into conflict with Kunzite's questionable tactics, so much that he teams up with the Sailor Senshi almost as much as he did before his brainwashing, whereas in the manga, Endymion is a full blown Card-Carrying Villain.
  • Adaptational Wimp: After the first season of the original anime, his importance quickly fades, as does his badassery ratio. He mostly drops in to provide a timely distraction that lets Usagi get back on her feet, seldom actually fighting at all. Reputedly, Kunihiko Ikuhara (the second director for the 90's anime) hated his character. By contrast, he retains a larger role in the manga, as a Magic Knight who has decent attacks and swordsmanship.
  • Adorkable: As Tuxedo Mask he runs around trying to find a perfect vantage point to enter scenes dramatically and spout sage wisdom to the girls like he is their personal cheerleader. Once he starts finally dating Usagi (without breaking up with her at random intervals) Mamoru can be just as much of a love sick dork as she is.
  • Affably Evil: After his first brainwashing session at Beryl's hands, he still retained many of his noble qualities.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Usagi and Chibi-Usa both call him "Mamo-chan".
  • Age Lift: In the manga he's 17 at the start, 19 in the last arc and 24 in the final chapter; in the anime he's 21 at the start and they don't have the distant finale making it end with him at 23. Given that Usagi's age is the same in the manga and anime starting her off at 14 some people find him a bit creepier in the anime since he's a 21-year-old in a relationship with a middle-schooler. At least partially because of this, in Sailor Moon Crystal he is 16 at the start.
  • Ambiguously Bi: As Ami says, he's very popular with boys. The villain of the Sailor Moon R movie is kinda his ex-boyfriend. However, his main love interest is the very female Usagi.
  • Amnesiac Lover: In the anime-only Makaiju arc.
  • Arranged Marriage: In the live-action, with a girl named Hina Kousaka (the daughter of his old caretaker). He still falls for Usagi, and Hina later lets him go willingly.
  • The Artifact: In the anime, especially during S and Super S. He started as a Satellite Character to give Usagi someone to emote at, but he and Usagi hit the Relationship Ceiling at the end of R, and meanwhile Usagi had lots of friends and characters to emote at, so he basically didn't do much before he was Put on a Bus destined to crash.
  • Audience Surrogate: The first anime version of him has signs of it.
  • Badass Bookworm: In the manga version he is graduated at the top of his class and is considered almost as smart as Ami, if not as smart, is an excellent fencer, and is also considered one of the best hand-to-hand combatants in the series. Pity the poor guy is still subjected to The Worf Effect even then...
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He wears... well, a tuxedo with a hat and a Badass Cape.
  • Badass Normal: In live action he doesn't seem to have any inherent powers.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Usagi in the first season.
  • Betty and Veronica: The Archie for Usagi's Betty and Rei's Veronica, only in the first anime. He chooses Usagi.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To the other Inner Senshi, specially Ami. This is the basis for the Ami/Mamoru pairing.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Tuxedo Mask does this virtually all the time.
  • Bishōnen: He's a Magical Girl-genre love interest/male lead, so this one was kind of a given.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The worst offender in the anime. While one of the arcs in which he receives this treatment, the mini-arc about Nehellenia's return, does not exist in the manga, Black Lady and Galaxia do not let poor Mamoru miss his regular dose of Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Bus Crash: In Stars, his plane never arrives in America. This only applies to the anime. In the manga, he never even got on the plane.
  • Chick Magnet: And suffering for it, as many female villains (and two males) have a crush on him, which usually means they want to turn him into their obedient manslave.
  • The Comically Serious: Sometimes.
  • Cool Mask: He's called Tuxedo Mask for a reason.
  • The Cowl: Especially in the manga where he was little more than a thinly-veiled Batman homage, even having a similar backstory and childhood trauma. As his character progressed he started to gain more elements of the Classic Cape as well.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    "Watch where you're throwing things, Bun-Head."
  • Demoted to Satellite Love Interest: He suffers this in the anime, but not in the manga. In the manga Mamoru is one of the most important and developed characters: while somewhat weak on his own, the major villains are usually defeated by combining his powers with Sailor Moon's. His future as King Endymion is also of great importance. By the 4th season he becomes the character with the most focus (after Sailor Moon herself), because of his connection to Pegasus/Helios, and his weak health that fuels that arc's drama. Compared to the manga, the anime starts forcing Mamoru out of the focus after the first season. In the first season he still has an important plot role, due to his forbidden love with Usagi/Princess Serenity. However, in the second season his importance gets considerably downplayed — and by the third season onward he's turned into a mere extra, to the point that when in the fifth season he's Put on a Bus, it really lessened the impact that event had in the manga.
  • Determinator: He's been orphaned, brainwashed and otherwise distressed, but manages to endure and recover from it. He's always ready to support the Sailor Senshi in their fight against evil, despite being weaker than them.
  • Distressed Dude: More in the anime, though his manga self also wasn't free.
  • Dub Name Change: In the original English-language dub, he becomes Darien Shields, and his dub name in his past life was Prince Darien.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: In the anime, Fiore was head over heels in love with him, and Fish Eye also found him really handsome. In the manga, one of Makoto's guy friends completely idolizes him, to the point of seeing him as a senpai.
  • Evil Costume Switch: In PGSM when Mamoru is possessed by Metallia's energy.
  • Gentleman Thief: In the beginning, more so in the manga, whereas he's more of a superhero in the anime.
  • Ill Boy: In Super S, as the Dead Moon Circus's influence spreads on Earth. He heals once the enemy is defeated, though.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Sort of.
  • Irisless Eye Mask Of Mystery: He wears a mask that whites out his eyes in the anime adaptations. In the original manga, the artist averted this design by giving him fully visible eyes.
  • It's Not You, It's Me:
    • In R, he starts doing this to Usagi after having several nightmares about Usagi's upcoming death in their wedding day.
    • To a lesser degree in Super S, when he starts to become sick and fears that Usagi would catch his infection. Little did he know his illness wasn't related to any viruses, but to the presence of the Dead Moon Circus.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In the beginning of the anime.
  • Kamehamehadoken: How his Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber attack looks in Crystal.
  • Lady and Knight: With Usagi and his past life with Princess Serenity.
  • Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards: In the anime, Tuxedo Mask does not gain new powers and abilities. He starts out as something of a Sixth Ranger who is able to get the senshi out of all their scrapes with a carefully aimed rose or fighting with his cane like a sword. But his abilities peak early while the senshi, once incapable children, become effective magical warriors who have no need for him at all.
  • Meaningful Name: Chiba Mamoru means "to protect the earth."
  • The Millstone: While under Queen Beryl's control in the anime, he repeatedly ends up being the one to foil Kunzite's plans. Unusually, this is not due to his incompetence, but rather the fact that he's too much of a Noble Demon to go along with the less ethical Kunzite's plans, and because Queen Beryl consistently wants him on the field when Kunzite would rather not have him underfoot.
  • Mind Rape: The reason behind his nightmares. Actually, these were sent to him by... his future self. Meaning, Mamoru had been mindraping himself all the time.
  • Mission Control: Very briefly takes up this role in the S season of the first anime. When the Senshi attempt to sneak into Mugen Gakuen, Mamoru is seen doing research in a laptop and relaying them the info since he cannot join them. He's the one who finds out about the incident in Professor Tomoe's laboratory that led to Hotaru becoming Mistress Nine's host.
  • Mysterious Protector: Begins as such. Later on, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune take partially this role, at least in the 90's anime.
  • No Name Given: In the 90s anime, his name isn't even revealed until a conversation between him and Motoki after Jadeite is defeatednote .
  • Non-Action Guy: In the anime. He says a few words to bolster Sailor Moon's spirits, throws a rose, and wanders off. He has to be saved from death/possession (season one), brainwashing/his own stupidity (season two), villain-induced illness (season four), and death (season five), not to mention many smaller instances. Except for providing The Power of Love a few times and a pivotal future cast member, he's kind of useless in battle. Possibly a case of Can't Catch Up, since the Sailors get regular upgrades while he... uh, doesn't. In the manga he had an actual attack and awesome mind powers — including healing, a psychic connection to his loved ones, and the ability to feel the earth's pain — and beat up bad guys more often. He was much more badass as a villain, as well.
  • Non-Indicative Name: The mask part is there, but he wears white tie and tails instead of a tuxedo.
  • The One Guy: The only member of heroes group that is a male.
  • Opposites Attract: With Usagi. He's cool, calm and intelligent, she's lively, ditzy and ignorant.
  • Parental Hypocrisy: In the anime, he refuses to allow Chibiusa to go out with older guys, even though he is older than Usagi.
  • Power Palms: One of his powers in the Manga and Crystal, the Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber. More devastating than it sounds.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Mamoru and Usagi are destined soul mates who have reincarnated in lifetime after lifetime.
  • Renaissance Man: Has an understanding of a vast knowledge of fields, speaks several languages, has skills in martial arts, cooking, theater, natural sciences, and history (although lacking the specialized knowledge of Ami). This is fitting considering some people like to nickname him "The Japanese Batman."
  • Satellite Love Interest: In the anime; from the second season onward, as he ended up Overshadowed by Awesome.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: The Savvy Guy to Usagi's Energetic Girl, specially in the first anime.
  • Sempai/Kohai: He and his schoolmate Ittou Asunama have this relationship in the manga and, to lesser extent, in Crystal. It's even implied that they're like this in the 90s anime.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Motoki's Sensitive Guy.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: When not in Tuxedo Mask form he wears well-tailored jackets.
  • Simple Staff: His cane, which he could extend at will in the anime.
  • Something About a Rose: His other ability in the anime.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Usagi/Sailor Moon in their past lives.
  • Straight Man: He is everyone's straight man. He's a master at it, on a good day he has to play this role for a good ten people at once.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Usagi is Book Dumb and an Action Girl. He's book-smart and mostly a Non-Action Guy.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's a tall man with black hair who has four different girls and several men after him.
  • Team Dad: Acts like a brother to the Senshi (specially to Ami), keeps Usagi and Chibi-Usa with their feet on Earth, in the S season he talks to the Outer Senshi directly to try finding out about their reasons.
  • Useless Boyfriend: One of the two Trope Codifiers.
  • The Worf Effect: Gets subjected to this a lot.

    Queen Serenity of the Moon Kingdom 

Queen Serenity of the Moon Kingdom
Voiced by: Mika Doi (first anime), Mami Koyama (Crystal) (JP), Wendy Lyon (DiC), Wendee Lee (Viz) (EN), Patricia Acevedo (LatAm), Raquel Marinho (PT-BR, Classic), Denise Simonetto (PT-BR, R-Stars)
Portrayed in the musicals by: Jamie Natsuki, Yuka Kobayashi

  • Ms. Exposition: Almost at the end of the anime, she's the one who explains the whole backstory of the Silver Millenium to the Senshi.
  • Mystical White Hair: The original Queen Serenity. Sailor Moon herself was originally supposed to be white haired when transformed and blonde as Usagi. In the manga, she does have white hair as Princess Serenity and Neo Queen Serenity, but not in either anime.
  • Odango Hair: Has the same hairstyle as Usagi.
  • Spirit Advisor: In the R anime.
  • Thanatos Gambit: In the anime, knowing that the Dark Kingdom would be reborn sooner or later, Queen Serenity used the last bits of energy she had to release the souls of the fallen Senshi, Endymion and Princess Serenity so they'd be reincarnated as well, while also freezing Luna and Artemis in a Convenient Coma so they could become their guides.
  • Truly Single Parent: Implied in the anime (there are no mentions of her having a husband or Princess Serenity having a father) while the manga seems to confirm it by showing Queen Serenity bringing the shell of a star to the Galaxy Cauldron, then Princess Serenity's birth. Not to mention the two of them look almost exactly alike.
  • Woman in White: She wears a white dress.

The Cats


  • Alien Animals: Cat aliens from the planet Mau.
  • Anthropomorphic Shift: A very subtle example. In their early appearances, the cats would display "normal" catlike behavior to a greater extent than they did later on.
  • Cats Are Magic: Well, not all cats, just alien ones with crescent moon sigils.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Are they EVER! (Well, at least the adult cats — Diana doesn't seem to quite have grasped what sarcasm is for yet.)
  • Cat Stereotype: Luna, the black cat, is more temperamental and stubborn than Artemis, the white cat. However, she does avert the stereotype of black cats as being evil. Both of them act as The Mentor and are undeniably magical. Diana, who is light gray (alternately light purple) seems to take more after Artemis, which fits with how light gray cats in fiction often follow the same stereotypes as white cats.
  • Cute Kitten: Luna, Artemis and their Kitten From The Future Diana are all Ridiculously Cute Critters.
  • Demoted to Extra: Happens to all of them, to some degree, in both manga and anime. Artemis was a major character in the Codename: Sailor V manga, but got a far smaller role in Sailor Moon, while Luna played a major role in the early parts for the manga and anime, only to have her role drastically reduced in later arcs — and both cats have notably larger roles in the earlier parts of both manga and anime than they have towards the end. As for Diana, she has a larger role in the manga, but gets very little screen-time or importance in the anime.
  • Furry Reminder: While they aren't technically anthropomorphic, the few times they actually act like normal cats still qualify as this. This was mostly in the earlier episodes.
  • Maid and Maiden: The cats play the Maid role to their respective owners who play the Maiden. This is most obvious with Luna as Usagi's mentor and care taker in the early stories.
  • Morphic Resonance: In the manga, their human forms' hair and eye colours are the same as their cat forms.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: While they're killed off in the manga, they survive in the anime, and even have speaking roles in the last scene.
  • Telepathy: Luna and Artemis displayed the ability to restore memories in the anime.
  • Through a Face Full of Fur: Perhaps the queen (and king) of this trope is Sailor Moon, in the guises of Luna and Artemis, also their daughter Diana. In the Manga is revealed that Rei's crow pets Phobos and Deimos play a similar role.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: They're the only ones of Usagi's friends not shown to be resurrected at the end of the manga, though it's entirely possible they were resurrected "offscreen".


Voiced by: Keiko Han (first anime), Ryo Hirohashi (Crystal) (JP), Jill Frappier (DiC and Cloverway), Michelle Ruff (Viz) (EN), Rocío Garcel and Cristina Camargo (LatAm), Márcia del Monaco (PT-BR, Classic), Márcia Gomes (PT-BR, R-Stars) António Semedo (PT)
Portrayed in the musicals by: Tomoko Ishimura

  • Accent Adaptation: In the Canadian dub, she's given a British accent, as she's played here by London native Jill Frappier.
  • Adaptational Badass: In Sailor Moon Crystal she is more in charge and competent in her role as guide and advisor to the Sailor Senshi.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon's Canon Foreigner Sailor Luna's appearance differs in execution from Naoko Takeuchi's series' specific original concept art While most of the basics carried over, the costume designer opted to give Luna bright blue hair to match the in-series blue Luna plushie instead of the deep purple/black Takeuchi depicted. Her petticoat was also brightened from deep purple to magenta.
  • Bed Trick: A variant. In one episode of Stars, Luna is found by Yaten of the Three Lights. Luna goes with him because she thinks he's cute. When Luna returns to the girls, Minako notices she smells like scented soap, and Luna mentions while blushing that she shared a bath with Yaten. The fact is, Yaten had no idea Luna is sentient, and it's actually more creepy than funny as the show had intended.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: She sometimes feels like this when it comes to assisting Usagi.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In the fourth episode of the anime, Luna threatened to claw Usagi's face when she didn't feel like helping stop the Monster of the Week and looked damn scary doing it
  • Cat Girl: In PGSM, once the Silver Crystal gives her a half-human form.
  • The Comically Serious: Occasionally, most notably in the American dub.
  • Cool Big Sis: Sometimes, though in some incarnations she is said to be younger than Usagi.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not as deadpan as Artemis, and more likely to start lecturing or losing her temper, but she can still snark with the best of them.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: She acted more like a normal cat in the first few episodes of the anime—for example, she would occasionally show affection to Usagi by licking her face.
  • Eccentric Mentor: Blame Queen Serenity for removing her memories.
  • Hypocritical Humor: When she merely thinks Diana is the lovechild of Artemis and another cat, she violently rages at him. Fast-forward to Sailor Stars, where she openly fawns over Yaten, perfectly fine with the fact that Artemis knows.
  • Interspecies Romance: She gets a crush on Hot Scientist Kakeru in the S movie and the short manga story it was based of. Then in Stars she gets a brief crush on Yaten.
  • Jerkass: While she's not a huge one per se, she has her moments of Jerkass-ness in the 90s anime.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold. Still, she's a good-hearted cat deep down and sticks by Usagi's side when it counts.
  • Kick the Dog: In the 90s anime, a lot of Luna's exasperation came from dealing with Usagi's immaturity, but there were times when she was just mean to her for no reason. She does the same thing to Artemis as well, but shows far more violence in dealing with him.
  • Ms. Exposition: Both Luna and Artemis tend to work as the ones to deliver exposition.
  • Odango Hair: In her human form in the manga.
  • Only Sane Woman: Regards herself as this sometimes.
  • Rescue Romance: Her crushes on humans start when both of them save her: Kakeru pulls a Diving Save when she's about to be run over by a car, Yaten saves her from birds.
  • Sixth Ranger: Only in the live-action series as Sailor Luna.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: To a degree, in the first anime.
  • Tsundere: Type A towards Artemis. Also towards Usagi, in a non-sexual way.
  • The Unfair Sex: Luna gives Artemis nothing but grief when she thinks he's being unfaithful, but when Luna shows romantic interest in somebody else everybody gushes about Luna finding love.
  • Vague Age: Though she is technically Really 700 Years Old, her physical age is uncertain and even seems to vary between incarnations. It's particularly notable in the live-action series, where her cat form sounds and acts identical to her anime counterpart (who is a full-grown cat), but when she transforms into a human, she takes on the form of a young child.

Portrayed in the musicals by: Kenji Himeno

  • Adaptational Badass: In Codename: Sailor V, he's useless in battle. In the first anime he could fight off a Cardian, and the first thing he does in the main series and Sailor Moon Crystal is to shatter the crystal weapon that Zoisite was about to kill Sailor Moon with.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Much like Luna, he's very much this to Minako, especially in Codename: Sailor V where he's constantly trying to keep Minako from slacking off.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In Makaiju arc of the first anime, a Cardian curbstomped and depowered Sailor Moon. When Sailor Moon returned with a power up, we found out that Artemis has fought the Cardian all the time and even scratched it, doing better than Sailor Moon herself. Granted, Sailor Moon's power was decreasing at the time, but still...
  • Big Brother Mentor: Minako's mentor, and she never considered him a pet, more like a brother.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: He's very clever and does have some powers of his own (more obviously so in the manga, but it's there in the anime too — see Beware the Nice Ones above), but is far more laid-back and less active than Luna, and is perfectly willing to kick back and catch up on his sleep while everyone else does the heavy lifting.
  • Butt-Monkey: Especially in the anime. His manga self takes far less abuse (unless we count the Codename: Sailor V manga.)
  • Deadpan Snarker: Indeed. Like when the sailorscouts were at a beach, looking at guys through binoculars.
    Artemis: They come to this great beach, and all they do is ogle boys!
  • Dogged Nice Guy: To Luna, who is Tsundere for him.
  • Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: In the Sailor V manga, he walks into Minako's bedroom while she's asleep and licks her face to wake her up. It would be pretty creepy if he wasn't a cat.
  • Eccentric Mentor: Blame Queen Serenity for removing his memories. Though in the manga, his are more intact than Luna's as he knows the Moon Princess's real identity from the start.
  • Enlightenment Superpowers: How he obtains his transformation in a human form and Minako's Super form.
  • Gender-Blender Name: This is mentioned in the Sailor V manga, when Minako points out that he's a male cat with a goddess's name.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: His human form in the manga.
  • Mystical White Hair: His human form, only seen in the Sailor Moon manga.
  • Super Strength: In the SuperS arc of the manga, when Minako is dropped through a trap door by one of the Lemures, Artemis manages to grab her hand and keep her from falling.
  • Taught by Television: He takes advantage of this trope in the Codename: Sailor V manga: as soon as he learns that Minako has this ability, he creates the Sailor V Game for the only purpose of training her, and succeeds. The Sailor V Game has also been used in the Sailor Moon manga to train Sailor Moon in the use of the Moon Stick.
  • Trickster Mentor: As shown by his creation of the Sailor V Game (see above) and when he took advantage of Minako going overweight due too much chocolate to literally trick her into putting up muscles (to Minako, all the exercise she was doing was supposed only to make her slim again, only to notice at the end of the battle that her Sailor V outfit was still too tigh because she had exercised enough to get the weight back in muscles).



Voiced by: Kumiko Nishihara (first anime), Shoko Nakagawa (Crystal) (JP), Loretta Jafelice (series), Naomi Emmerson (Black Dream Hole) (Cloverway), and Debi Derryberry (Viz) (EN), Cony Madera (LatAm), Fátima Noya (PT-BR, SuperS), Cristiane Bullara (PT-BR, Stars), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT)

  • Badass Adorable: More in the manga and Crystal than in the anime.
  • Cat Girl: In the manga, she can take on human shape in times of crisis. Unlike Luna and Artemis, she keeps her tail when human.
  • Cute Kitten: Her parents are cute too, but Diana takes the cuteness Up to Eleven. Just look at her!
  • Head Pet: Often sits on Chibi-Usa's head.
  • Kid from the Future: Luna and Artemis's daughter.
  • Odango Hair: Her human form in the manga.
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: She's generally portrayed as rather innocent, but on many occasions reveals herself as extremely perceptive. In the manga, Sailor Pluto even trusts her to guard the Time Gate for short periods of time.

The Sailor Starlights


  • Ascended Extra: All of them; Naoko Takeuchi herself didn't quite understand why they were given such a major role in the anime.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Undoubtedly easy on the eyes as women and men.
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: Yaten, Taiki and Seiya respectively. This is particularly shown in the manga when Michiru, Ami, and Haruka are shown up by each of them respectively and are pretty sore about it.
  • Bifauxnen: In the manga, while in their civilian forms.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Senshi form.
  • Human Aliens: Apparently a given for the Sailor Moon universe.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Their incredibly long ponytails. Only added because Takeuchi was told short-haired wigs are hard to make for dolls.
  • Short Hair with Tail: They all have this hairstyle, both to show their masculine vs. feminine traits and because Takeuchi was told that short-haired wigs would be difficult to make for dolls.
  • Stripperiffic: Their senshi forms are some of the most revealing outfits in the series. It's even more ironic when you consider the fact that they all dress as guys in civilian forms.
  • Super Gender-Bender: In the anime, where they actually are male in their civilian forms instead of just pretending to be.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Starlights as a whole are the Tomboy to Princess Kakyu's Girly Girl.
  • Town Girls: Seiya as the Butch, Yaten as the Femme and Taiki as the Neither. Yaten is the Femme as the others are more manly-looking and also behave more masculine than her.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In the manga, where they're only disguised as boys rather than transformed into them.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A when transformed due to their short shorts and thigh high boots.

    Kou Seiya/Sailor Star Fighter 

Kou Seiya/Sailor Star Fighter

Voiced by: Shiho Niiyama (JP), Irwin Daayán and Mónica Villaseñor (LatAm), Marcelo Campos and Eleonora (Prado PT-BR), Rogério Jacques (PT)
Portrayed in the musicals by: Sayuri Katayama, Chinatsu Akiyama, Meiku Harukawa

  • Adaptation Personality Change: Seiya became a Hot-Blooded, playful, flirtarious person in the 90s anime, which contrasts heavily with the manga where she is serious and polite, and while her crush on Usagi still remains in both media, she is much more respectful to Usagi about it in the manga.
  • Badass Gay: Since her male form is just a disguise. Being in love with Usagi and it's implied Princess Kakyuu doesn't stop her from being a dedicated asskicker.
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: The Brawn to Yaten's Beauty and Taiki's Brains.
  • Bifauxnen and Lad-ette: To Haruka, although this switches between the manga and the anime. In the anime, she is The Lad-ette to Haruka's Bifauxnen, but it's the other way around in the manga.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: She who comes damn close to stealing Usagi away, but in the end doesn't take advantage of her when she's at her most vulnerable.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Her attack.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: She kisses Usagi on the lips in the manga, and her crush is made quite obvious.
  • The Leader: Of the Sailor Starlights.
  • Romantic Runner-Up: She ultimately loses out to Mamoru for Usagi's affections, though not for lack of trying. It's implied she had unrequited feelings for Princess Kakyuu as well.
  • The Stoic: In the manga. While Seiya does show gentle expressions at times, she is usually more serious-looking.

    Kou Taiki/Sailor Star Maker 

Kou Taiki/Sailor Star Maker

Voiced by: Narumi Tsunoda (JP), José Gilberto Vilchis and Norma Echeverría (LatAm), Tatá Guarnieri and Denise Simonetto (PT-BR)
Portrayed in the musicals by: Hikari Ono, Akiko Nakayama, Riona Tatemichi

  • Badass Bookworm: She is both a badass fighter and a studious intellectual.
  • Bifauxnen: A very handsome-looking girl with a nice personality to match.
  • Brainy Brunette: The most intelligent of the trio and she has brown hair.
  • Only Sane Man: She appears to be the most coolheaded Starlight.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: She challenges Ami's beliefs in dreams, saying that the real world doesn't work that way. Only in the anime, though.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the Sailor Starlights.
  • The Stoic: She is not unfriendly, but always keeps a serious expression.

  • Brutal Honesty: She will tell you exactly what she thinks, regardless of how rude it is.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her moments.
  • Drama Queen: She is more prone to behave dramatically, which makes her stand out to her other stoic companions.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Played with, she is commented on by her fangirls to be the "pretty boy" of the band, but she is actually a lady after all, and is in fact the girliest-looking compared to the other two.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's harsh, cynical, vain and holds grudges easily, but she means well.
  • Mistaken for Gay: A nosy reporter assumes this of Yaten based on her lack of interest in dating. The truth is Yaten just hates everything and doesn't want to be bothered.
  • Mystical White Hair: She has white hair and is a superpowered magical girl.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: In the anime.


    Phobos and Deimos 

Phobos and Deimos

  • Alien Animals: In the manga, they're revealed to be from the same planet as Sailor Lead Crow.
  • Clever Crows: In the manga, they aren't ordinary crows... They're shapeshifting aliens from the planet Coronis whose job is is to protect Sailor Mars. (They aren't this in the anime, only appear briefly as the shrine's pets, and aren't named at all in the live action.)
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: In human form, one wears red and one wears purple. The manga is in black and white, but Deimos' outfit is darker, indicating that she is the one in purple.
  • Demoted to Extra: In pretty much all adaptations. Their most prominent role is in the manga.
  • Gender-Blender Name: The crows are female, but are named after male deities.
  • Meaningful Name: They're named after Mars' two moons.
  • Theme Twin Naming: They are both named for Mars' two moons.

Portrayed in the musicals by: Yuuta Enomoto, Hikaru Hirayama

  • Allegorical Character: The personification of dreams and faith. Chibi-Usa is content to befriend him and keep their dream pure (despite being tempted to do more). This is in direct contrast to Nehellenia, whose corrupted dreams include wanting to own him.
  • Baleful Polymorph: In the manga Helios is cursed by Queen Nehellenia to take on the form of Pegasus, his favorite steed. He's able to temporarily transform back into his human form, but when his strength gives out wings sprout from his back and he transforms back into Pegasus. In contrast, in the 90's anime he's a voluntary shapeshifter.
  • Bishōnen: In his human form.
  • Boy of My Dreams: Chibiusa meets him in her dreams.
  • Distressed Dude: Helios is caged and held captive by Nehellenia after she takes over Elysion, the holy land that Helios is charged with protecting.
  • Fan Disservice: Seeing Helios's very pretty-looking human form in the nude in't pleasant since he's unconscious and in Unwilling Suspension with what looks like spider webs. Ew.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Chibiusa, though the trope is only played with, considering Helios is a Bishōnen cursed and forced into the form of a Pegasus in the manga, and is able to shape shift in the to a Pegasus form in the 90's anime.
  • May–December Romance: It's hinted at in the manga that Helios has been alive since at least the time of the Silver Millennium, making him potentially thousands of years old versus Chibi Usa, who's 900 years.
  • Pegasus: The form Helios transforms into in both the anime and manga. In the manga, Pegasus turns out to be Helios' favorite winged steed.
  • Prince Charming: In the manga Chibi Usa makes a wish for Helios to be her prince one day.
  • Puppy Love: With Chibiusa.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Helios is the head priest of the Elysian Shrine, implied to be the only part of the old Golden Kingdom (the kingdom of Earth from the Silver Millennium i.e. Mamoru's kingdom) to survive and remain intact after Beryl's coup and attack on the Moon Kingdom. And he's been there this whole time.
  • Through a Face Full of Fur: In episode 135 of the anime, Chibi Usa proceeds to change into her night gown in front of Pegasus, causing Pegasus to blush when he sees her half dressed. Even though Pegasus is Human All Along, this scene is Squick worthy for some viewers considering she's a young child and he's a horse, evem if his human form is that of a pre-teen.

Portrayed in the musicals by: Mao Kawasaki, Mikiko Asuke, Komachi Yuka, Mina Horita, Yamaguchi Hinari, Niitsu Chise, Satomi Ookubo

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the manga, Chibi Chibi is more mature and less childlike. She also can form more speech than just parroting "Chibi Chibi".
  • Badass Adorable: Being both a cute little girl and a sailor soldier.
  • Big Eater: She has a real Sweet Tooth.
  • Cheerful Child: She is perpetually cute and cheerful.
  • Cousin Oliver: Precociously adorable kid introduced in the series' last season. Thankfully she proved to be pretty popular, and in the west was actually more popular than Chibiusa.
  • Cute Mute: For a long time, she's only heard saying "Chibi Chibi!" In the anime she also echoes bits of other people's words and sentences because, since she's so little, she's still learning to speak.
  • The Cutie: An adorable and innocent little girl. Even according to Usagi, she's much sweeter than Chibiusa.
  • Enemy Within: Inverted in the anime. She is Sailor Galaxia's Star Seed.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Like Usagi and Chibiusa she has pigtails combined with the Odango hairstyle.
  • Is That Cute Kid Yours?: What people ask Usagi about Chibi Chibi.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: In the Manga, Usagi's mom asks if she's related to Chibiusa, promting Chibi Chibi's first use of Pokémon Speak.
  • Odango Hair: And they're heart shaped!
  • Pokémon Speak: She was named after the only word she could say at the time.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: In the manga, she's actually Sailor Cosmos who's tired of fighting a war against a reborn Sailor Chaos. She's come to the past to try to convince Eternal Sailor Moon to destroy the Galaxy Cauldron and prevent Chaos from achieving its Sailor form.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A replacement for Chibiusa, after the latter is Put on a Bus.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She's fully willing to let the Galaxy Cauldron be destroyed to destroy Chaos once and for all to prevent the creation of Sailor Chaos, even if it means that it dooms the galaxy, or even the entire universe to a slow and steady death as no new stars will be able to be born. She knows it's a Sadistic Choice either way, but after a fruitless battle with Sailor Chaos, she'd rather prefer that everything ends with a whimper rather than a bang.

    Princess Kakyuu 

Princess Kakyuu

Voiced by: Sakiko Tamagawa (JP), Cony Madera (LatAm), Raquel Marinho (PT-BR), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT)
Portrayed in the musicals by: Satoko Yoshioka, Ai Toyama, Asami Okamura

  • Expy: Of Helios, in relation to Chibi Chibi but without the Toy Ship.
  • Facial Markings: The one on her forehead. It's a Sweet Osmanthus, called kinmokusei in Japanese
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted, she's polite and serene. Her NAME means fireball however.
  • Flower Motifs: The sweet olive, aka Osmanthus fragrans. This is part of a multi-layered pun: the Japanese name of her flower is kinmokusei, but -sei (using a different character) is the suffix for indicating the name of a planet. Thus her planet Kinmokusei (Planet Kinmoku) is the same as her flower, the kinmokusei.
  • Human Aliens: Just like the Starlights. It can be assumed that people from Kinmoku would all be like this.
  • Magical Girl: She has a senshi form called, strangely Sailor Kakyuu (most would expect Sailor Kinmoku).
  • We Would Have Told You, But...: Kakyuu could have gotten out of the small kettle Chibi-Chibi kept on her own, but she was injured after escaping her doomed planet and wanted to wait for the right moment to reveal herself since Galaxia was focusing all efforts on finding her and her alone.
  • The Worf Effect: With fatal consequences, in the anime.
