Characters: Sailor Moon Villains
This page covers the villains of Sailor Moon
open/close all folders
- Ascended Extra: In the anime, characters making up the Quirky Miniboss Squad for the arc get much more development and screentime than in the manga.
- Heel-Face Turn: There are quite a few of them, surprisingly (or not surprisingly if you consider one of Sailor Moon's abilities being able to remove dark energy from someone if the energy is weak enough). Some do have the Heel Face Door Slam, though.b
- Theme Naming: Almost every villain worth mentioning before the final arc is named after a gemstone.
- And most of them are green.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Pretty much every main villain has one.
- Shoo Out the Clowns: When the Quirky Miniboss Squad has been defeated (or reformed), then you know things will get serious.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Aya Sugimoto
- Absolute Cleavage: ESPECIALLY in the live action, where her actress is an erotic novelist, as well as an actress in some later risque films. She has some definite talent.
- Adaptational Villainy: Although most villains were softened or made more sympathetic in the transition from the manga to the anime, Queen Beryl was instead changed from a tragic victim of manipulation by Metalia and her belief that she was now beyond redemption to a completely unsympathetic villainess who loyally served Metalia.
- And Now You Must Marry Me: Her plan for the kidnapped Endymion.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In the anime, when fused with Metalia.
- Authority Equals Ass Kicking: Averted in the anime, surprisingly. While certainly a powerful sorceress, one rose from Endymion fatally wounds her. Metalia's power helps her bulk up, of course.
- Played straight in the manga, with her nearly beating the Sailor Senshi on her own before she's killed by Minako.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead
- Disc One Final Boss: The manga version, which got killed off rather easily by Sailor Venus before the true final confrontation with Metalia.
- In Sailor Moon Crystal she dies before any of her minions, and the battle is not all that difficult either (due to some epic Genre Blindness on her part).
- The Dragon: To Metalia.
- Evil Redhead: Especially as her uncorrupted form had black hair.
- Fiery Redhead
- God Save Us from the Queen!
- Green-Eyed Monster and Love Makes You Evil: In the manga, she once was a normal witch from Earth, but her love for Endymion boosted her jealousy towards Serenity and made her easy prey for Metalia. While this is also true in the anime, the first part about being a normal witch wasn't used.
- Heel-Face Turn: It's rather interesting that the re-tellings of the first story of Sailor Moon seem to do this for her to some extent, so much so that one might suspect it was a desire to do so to begin with. It's very present in some fanfiction, but to have both Sailor Moon: Another Story and PGSM do this to some degree (SMAS averts it, though it shows a past in which Beryl was actually sane and more lovesick than evil; PGSM really cranks it up at the end) might be telling of where they might go with further re-tellings, if they go all out with it (the series is known for Heel Face Turns of it's lesser villains).
- It's now a canon occurrence in several of the Sera Myu musicals in which she appears as a secondary villain to Galaxia.
- Ignored Epiphany: In the manga, where she was explicitly stated to be a "normal" woman before being corrupted by Metalia and briefly wonders how she managed to fall so far, before deciding that it is too late to turn back.
- One-Winged Angel: Her most powerful form in the anime, after Metalia merges with her.
- Spikes of Villainy
- The Starscream: In the manga and Sailor Moon Crystal she hoped to keep the Silver Crystal for herself, and in the live action series planned to use it to control Metalia.
- Theme Naming: After the mineral beryl.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Seems to care more for her generals in Crystal than she did in the anime or manga, even going as far as to carry a wounded Zoisite away from the battle in act 5.
- Vain Sorceress
- Wicked Witch
- You Have Failed Me: To her subordinates. One of the most classic examples of this trope. Averted in PGSM, where she even lampshades how impractical it is to kill a loyal minion.
The Four Heavenly Kings (Shitennou)
: Jadeite, Nephrite, Zoisite and Kunzite
- Adaptational Villainy: In the manga they were the four generals and bodyguards of Prince Endymion who were forced to be servants to the Dark Kingdom. Also, they were still rivals but also cared for each other and were shocked by each others' deaths. In the first anime they were simply Beryl's generals from the start and they were often rivals and were discarded once they were no longer useful to each other, with the exception of Zoisite and Kunzite being lovers (which they weren't in the manga).
- All There in the Manual: Their past lives as possible lovers to the Sailor Senshi was never mentioned in the anime but was in tie-in materials such as the Friends and Foes book. In the manga, we only get to see Kunzite making some teasing remarks about Princess Serenity to Sailor Venus, who blushes when she hears him. Also, the "Sailor V" manga confirms there was a relationship between the two, much to the disappointment of would-be-Big Bad Adonis. And Jadeite in the manga lusts after Rei when he sees her in the present.
- The manga also had a particularly infamous picture◊ of the four Guardian Senshi and the Shitennou coupled off, which Naoko Takeuchi said was something she had considered, but never got around to fully fleshing out. Venus is confirmed to have at least fallen in love with Kunzite via a villain in her own manga (the chapter of which was published years after the original picture), and was completely confirmed to be in a relationship with him in the "Another Story" video game (the canon of which, obviously, is in question), and the Sera Myu musicals....let's just say the whole idea of the eight being romantically entangled is pretty much canon in everything but the original anime and PGSM.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In the manga and the live-action adaptation. In the anime they aren't even human, technically.
- Dead Person Conversation and Spirit Advisor: In the manga only, after their deaths their spirits appear before Mamoru, whose generals and bodyguards they were in their Silver Millenium incarnations, to cheer him up and offer advice.
- Death by Adaptation: A strange case of it. They die in the manga and anime, but as mentioned above, their spirits remain present after death in the manga. Not so in the anime, where the removal of their backstory and connection to Mamoru renders it impossible.
- Flat Character / Generic Doomsday Villain: With exception of Kunzite, none of them have much, if any, personality in the manga.
- Four Is Death: Although in the first anime. the four of them never appear together. Except for their cameo in the Silver Millenium flashback. Averted in Sailor Moon Crystal, where the four Shitennou do appear all at the same time in Chapter 4 in front of the Sailor Senshi near the ending of the chapter.
- Sue Donym: Jadeite used the name "Jay Daito" in more than one episode while in disguise. In the sound dramas, Zoisite calls himself "Zoi Saito," and Kunzite is "Kunz Aito."

Portrayed in PGSM by: Jun Masuo
- Affably Evil: In the Swedish dub.
- Adaptation Dye-Job / You Don't Look Like You: Averted: Jadeite is the only Shitennou who looks (largely) the same in the manga/anime and in PGSM.
- Blond Guys Are Evil
- Crosscast Role: In one musical he was once played by Yuuka Asami, who played (and was the longest running) Sailor Neptune in prior musicals. The next musical also had him played by a different actress. He was played by a man in his first appearance however.
- Fate Worse Than Death: Was frozen in a crystal for his many failures in the anime.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: He devolves in an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain, but he's still the one Shitennou who overpowered Sailor Moon, gave three Sailor Soldiers a desperate run for their money, and saw their true faces (with personal knowledge of Rei's identity to boot). Had Beryl not gone for You Have Failed Me before he could explain his final plan, he would have won the war for the Dark Kingdom by just kidnapping Rei in her sleep, either torturing or brainwashing Rei to get the names of Usagi and Ami from her, and then killing the three.
- An Ice Person: In Sailor Moon Crystal.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Gotta have some pity for the poor failure.
- Jerkass: He even makes a rather sexist remark to the Sailor Soldiers in his final episode, after seemingly beating Tuxedo Mask.
"Your last hope, Tuxedo Mask, is now dead. Go on and cry! Do you need a man to do everything for you?! Women are such shallow, useless creatures!" (Evil Laugh)
- Large Ham: His dub voice ("Queen Beryl will be MOST PLEASED! Muahahahahahaha!")
"You can't escape! Now die!"
- Manipulative Bastard
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Due to his sexism.
- Ship Tease/Villainous Crush: In the manga, after capturing Rei, Jadeite comments that he's strangely attracted to her. This scene was left out of the corresponding episode of the '90s anime, but included in Crystal.
- Smug Snake: He starts out seriously threatening in the first half of his arc, but spirals into this trope with each passing scheme (and failure) in the second half.
- Starter Villain: He's the first one the Sailor Guardians encounter.
- Stay in the Kitchen: Told that once to Moon, Mars, and Mercury. They were NOT amused and resulted in TRIPLE Plane Fu being used on him.
- Theme Naming: After the mineral jadeite.
- Undying Loyalty: His sole humanizing trait is his devotion to his queen; he even returns to her after his final defeat knowing damn well what the possible consequence will be.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Unlike his youma, he actually manages to overpower Usagi in his fight with her and it takes her, Ami, and Rei to beat him.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Hiroyuki Matsumoto
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon makes Nephrite a full redhead instead of a brunet.
- Adaptational Heroism: Unique to The Nineties anime, Nephrite falls in love with Usagi's friend Naru and dies trying to protect her from his fellow generals.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: The dynamic with Nephrite and Naru. 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.
- Becoming the Mask: In the '90s anime, Nephrite attempts to manipulate Naru into helping him discover Sailor Moon's identity by claiming that her love has awakened his humanity and that he wishes to defect from the Dark Kingdom. It works flawlessly - until Zoisite starts targeting Naru and Nephrite finds himself rushing to her rescue.
- The Berserker: In the manga, where he gets himself killed very easily!
- Catch Phrase: "The stars know everything."
- Cool Car: In the anime, Masato Sanjouin drives a sweet Ferrari.
- Crazy-Prepared: In episode 19, it is implied that, because none of the letters he sent out had any postage marks and were all handwritten, Nephrite had to find out the names and addresses of every schoolgirl in the city, wrote each letter, and then hand delivered them to their homes in person.
- Also, the department store mentioned in the love letters? The MS Department Store. It is blatantly implied he owned and built that store and named it after his alter ego Masato Sanjouin (or Maxfield Stanton, if you're watching the DiC dub).
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Naru's
- Evil Genius: In the anime, with mysticism rather than technology. Used astrology to pick out people who would provide peak energy and cooked up a gem that would detect large energy sources/the Silver Crystal.
- Evil Redhead / Fiery Redhead: In PGSM.
- Famous Last Words: "I have ended up lying to you until the very end. Please forgive me. I'm glad I met you."
- Frothy Mugs of Water: "Lemonade"
- Heel Face Door Slam: Just as he is about to reject the Dark Kingdom for Naru, Zoisite comes in and has him murdered.
- Hot-Blooded: In PGSM.
- Large Ham: In both the original and the dub versions. That creepy mansion he was operating out of in that dark, gloomy forest? He didn't just make the mansion, he made the forest and the mountain the forest covered out of thin air right near the city. His debut as Masato Sanjouin has him speeding through the streets in a red sports car, and when he shows up at Rui's tennis match, just jumps over the fence without breaking stride and introduces himself as "Masato Sanjouin, just an eccentric coach." And then there's the possibility that the outrageous tendencies his victims start to develop, as well as some of the flashier youma he uses, may be extensions of Nephrite's will and personality, it kind of says a lot about how grandiose he really is. Maybe even more so than Zoisite.
- Love Redeems: Anime only, where spending time around Naru initially manipulating her results in him gradually starting to care about her for real.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Redemption Equals Death: In the anime, where he dies saving Naru.
- Ship Tease/Villainous Crush: Ami and Nephrite in the live-action. In Sailor Moon Crystal possibly like Jadeite with Rei, he recognizes the look in Makoto's eyes when she fights as Sailor Jupiter.
- Spared by the Adaptation: The only Shitennou to survive in PGSM, if only reincarnated. That is, until Princess Sailor Moon destroys the world...
- The Starscream: Implied in the anime that he'd be willing to betray Beryl if he found the Silver Crystal.
- Theme Naming: After the mineral nephrite.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Yoshito Endo
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon sees Zoisite go from blond to White Hair, Black Heart.
- Adaptational Sexuality: In The Nineties anime, Zoisite is gay and in a relationship with Kunzite. The manga never addresses his sexuality, but a developmental piece of concept art by Naoko Takeuchi has him embracing Sailor Mercury. The ''La Reconquista" musical also depicts a romantic connection between the two.
- Adaptational Villainy: In the manga, he was visibly upset by Nephrite's death and tried to avenge Jadeite by attacking Rei in a side story. Compare to the anime where he doesn't give half a damn about anyone but himself and Kunzite.
- Alas, Poor Villain: Sure, he was a sadistic little Troll who had Nephrite killed out of jealousy and stabbed Tuxedo Mask, but it's hard not to feel sorry for him as he's dying in Kunzite's arms.
- Big Eater: In the rare CD sound dramas, Kunzite tells him to eat a hundred meat pies as penance for goofing up a practice run with their scheme. He doesn't seem to mind terribly.
- Bishōnen: So much so, it was very easy to change his gender. See Dude Looks Like a Lady below.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Played straight in the Japanese version; inverted in the English dub (Zoisite is evil, but he's become a woman)
- Camp Gay: In the original Japanese dub.
- Cherry Blossoms: Always appears surrounded by LOTS of petals. On the second part of the episode where Usagi is revealed to be The Moon Princess, Zoisite even wanted cherry blossom petals to carry his spirit off when he died.
- Combat Pragmatist: He'll use disguises, stab you from behind, double-cross you, lie blatantly and serially, grab his objective and immediately teleport out, cripple his enemies, distract his foes with throwaway minions, attack from afar, target civilians, engage his opponents peicemeal, and will teleport out immediately if things aren't going his way. Of all the Dark Kingdom's servants, he is easily the most clever.
- Crazy Jealous Guy: Do NOT attract Kunzite's attention!
- Dark Chick: In the DiC dub
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Kunzite's
- Dirty Coward: He (or "She" if you've seen the original English dub) never fights fair.
- Pragmatic Villainy: To his credit, he also knows better than to go in for the kill without an attack plan, or when to back away to save his own life. There's a reason he lasted longer than any of the other three.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Very much so. The Canadian version had Zoisite as a woman because (a) they wanted a token evil female member of Queen Beryl's army, (b) he looks pretty enough to pass for a woman, (c) to cover up the fact that he's in a homosexual relationship with Kunzite/Malachite, and (d) to get rid of the Villainous Crossdresser aspect of Zoisite dressing up as Sailor Moon in the episode in which Sailor Venus is introduced.
- Evil Is Petty: He basically had Nephrite killed out of jealousy, and later stabbed Tuxedo Mask for scarring his face.
- Green-Eyed Monster: *Big* time in the 90s anime, right down to the actual green eyes.
- Jerkass: Has one humanizing trait in the anime and that's his/her love for Kunzite, and even that can get out of hand.
- Kick The Cat: Smacks Luna away when she tries to take the Yellow Rainbow Crystal back from him.
- Love Makes You Evil: While he wasn't a huge saint already, some of his worst actions either were to please his lover/mentor Kunzite or because he was jealous of someone else who had taken Kunzite's attention away from him.
- Manipulative Bastard: Hated Nephrite, and eventually succeeded in getting him killed off.
- May-December Romance: With Kunzite, if the anime does indeed go by the manga's ages (Zoisite at 16-17, Kunzite at 25-26).
- Minion Shipping: With Kunzite, in the anime.
- Musical Assassin: In the live-action series, he channeled his power through the songs played on his piano.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: In the Canadian English Dub.
- Even manages this in the original Japanese version when disguised as Sailor Moon.
- Petal Power: Currently provides the page picture.
- Removing the Rival: The very idea that Nephrite might succeed pissed him off. He likely would have had Nephrite killed even if he hadn't turned his coat for Naru.
- Sissy Villain: Japanese version only, due to Zoisite being a gay male, but it doesn't stop him from being considerably more effective than either of the previous reoccurring villains.
- She's a Man in Japan: Is the Trope Namer, thanks to DiC's notorious North American version. Becomes Hilarious in Hindsight, since his first appearance antagonizing the Guardians in the manga and Crystal has him disguised as a woman.
- Smitten Teenage Boy: Kunzite pretty much turns his knees to jelly.
- Smug Snake: Despite his effectiveness as a villain he has plenty of this. He's more bark than bite until the final episodes of his arc.
- Sophisticated as Hell: In the Viz dub, he says "hell" and "damn" quite a bit despite his dainty and cultured mannerisms.
- Teens Are Monsters: Is said to be 16-17 per Takeuchi's notes. If this indeed carries over to the anime, it certainly explains why he's such a spitfire.
- Theme Naming: After the mineral zoisite.
- Token Good Teammate: In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Zoisite is the only one of the Shitennou that remembers his past life and tries to act for the good of the other Shitennou and his former Master Endymion as a result of having his memories.
- Undying Loyalty: To Kunzite in the original anime, to Endymion PGSM.
- Villainous Crossdresser
- White Hair, Black Heart: In the live action only. He's blond elsewhere.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Screamed at the top of his lungs and ran for his life when he was surrounded by rats in a sewer.
- The Worf Effect: In every version so far, Sailor Venus' debut includes kicking his ass to show how awesome she is, be it crippling his hands with a crescent beam just as he's about to kill Tuxedo Kamen (anime) or hacking him into tiny pieces with a Precision-Guided Boomerang (manga). He survives the encounter in Crystal, but is still summarily defeated.
- Wounded Gazelle Gambit: A very subtle version during the later parts of Nephrite's arc. Zoisite is always the one who approaches Nephrite to give him a hard time, and when Nephrite reacts predictably he becomes offended and runs to Kunzite for reassurance.
- Yaoi Guys: With Kunzite, in the anime (original Japanese version only).

Portrayed in PGSM by: Akira Kubodera
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Kunzite's hair goes from the original white to black.
- Adaptational Sexuality: In The Nineties anime, Kunzite is gay and in a relationship with Zoisite. Codename: Sailor V briefly depicts a past-life relationship with Sailor Venus.
- Affably Evil: Averted. His Swedish voice actor also voiced Jadeite and that performance was Affably Evil, but as Kunzite he did a better job.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: In PGSM, Kunzite became shy, likable amnesiac Shin as punishment for being The Starscream.
- Badass: By far the strongest of the Shitennou and is able to defeat all five Sailor Senshi on his own.
- Badass Gay: In the Japanese anime and Viz Media re dub.
- Badass Decay: Slightly in the 90s anime. Justified in that he's mourning the loss of his lover, Zoisite.
- Badass Cape
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Becomes even moreso than he was initially in the manga when he attempts to betray Beryl and she puts him under total mind control as punishment.
- Character Focus: He's the only Shitennou in the original manga to have any sort of development and prolonged exposure.
- Crosscast Role: The musicals again.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Dishes these out in all his fights with the Senshi, and is on the receiving end when Sailor Moon has the Silver Crystal.
- Dark Skinned White Haired. In anime and manga but not in the live action, where his hair is black.
- Dub Name Change: To "Malachite". This one is justified, as there was apparently legal issues with using "Kunzite". At least malachite is also a mineral so the change doesn't stick out.
- Hyper Competent Sidekick: In the anime, he's much smarter than Queen Beryl, with only a few of his plans being dumb (when he's saddled with a brainwashed Mamoru), and he's arguably more powerful given that he could take all on five Sailor Senshi on his own, and win (much like his manga counterpart), while Beryl is just beaten by one of Mamoru's pointed flowers.
- Hoist by His Own Petard
- Kick The Cat: Is perfectly willing to hurt Luna and Artemis, enough that they spend the finale bandaged and recovering from their injuries.
- Teacher/Student Romance: With Zoisite in the 90s anime.
- Minion Shipping: With Zoisite, in the anime.
- Reliable Traitor: In the live action version.
- Theme Naming: After the mineral gemstone kunzite. The DiC English dub retains the theme by naming him after another mineral gemstone, malachite.
- Ship Tease: During their first confrontation in Crystal, Sailor Venus implores Kunzite to stop his attack, referencing his "true self." Her words seem to make him hesitate briefly, until Beryl orders him to get on with it.
- Sugar and Ice Personality: Seems to have this with Zoisite; he's mostly very serious and aloof but has several moments where his affection for Zoisite is quite clear.
- Together in Death: Invokes this during his death in the original anime, when he calls out for Zoisite to lead him to where his soul rests.
- Villainous Valour: In the anime. When fighting against Sailor Moon and the Silver Crystal, he is given a chance to be redeemed. He rejects it emphatically and attacks as strongly as he can, despite being blatantly outclassed. He then ends up being literally the only non-Big Bad villain to be killed by a member of the Sailor Senshi.
- White Hair, Black Heart: In every adaptation but the live-action.
- Yaoi Guys: With Zoisite, in the original anime, in which Zoisite is actually a very pretty man, rather than a woman with a flat chest.
Portrayed by: Alisa Yuriko Durbrow
- Affably Evil: To a certain extent, as she was there to care for Mamoru during his time as Queen Beryl's prisoner.
- And Now You Must Marry Me: Yep, just like her genetic source. Moreso in the Special Act: all she wants to assemble her new Dark Kingdom is a king, and she wants specifically Mamoru to be that king. And she very nearly got it, hadn't Usagi meddled in (oh, and hadn't Mamoru resisted her brainwashing as well).
- Back from the Dead: In the Special Act.
- Cloning Blues
- Do Not Adjust Your Set: When she comes back in the Special Act, she openly announces her takeover this way.
- God Save Us from the Queen!: In the Special Act.
- Idol Singer
- Literal Split Personality: From Queen Beryl, possibly, given her degree of free will.
- Man-Eating Plant: She turns into one to finish off Usagi once and for all.
- Manipulative Bitch: And how. Taking advantage of Usagi's naiveté was just kind of a boring Tuesday for her.
- One-Winged Angel: Her giant plant form.
- Pimped-Out Dress: As Queen Mio in the Special Act.
- The Rival: To Minako, in the J-Pop scene.
- Uncanny Valley Girl
- Woman Scorned: The revelation that Mamoru resisted her brainwashing and, therefore, wouldn't marry her, got her so mad with despair that it triggered her transformation into her ultimate form.
- Wounded Gazelle Gambit: She faints on the path of Mamoru's motorcycle in order to kidnap him and take him to the Dark Kingdom.
- Always Chaotic Evil: In the Canadian dub. Instead of being evil humans that became evil monsters, natives to the Negaverse seem to just be intrinsically bad.
- The Legions of Hell: Damned entities that became hideous monsters after getting sealed away as punishment for their rebellion.
- Was Once a Man: In the manga, they're the reborn foot-soldiers who aided Beryl during her rebellion. Hinted at in the anime as well.
Makai Tree Aliens
- Brother-Sister Incest: In the "we're siblings and like Adam and Eve" sense. Even in their human disguises, they were clingy towards each other, as a squicked Makoto points out once when "Natsumi" whines at her for flirting with "Seijuro" and then at him for "playing along" ("Whoa. Such weird siblings!")
- But Now I Must Go: Thanks to Sailor Moon purifying the Makai Tree, the two earn a second chance, and depart to find another planet where they can nurture the tree with love.
- Catchphrase: "Love is something you can take." This is Ail and En's philosophy regarding the nature of love itself, and they repeat it numerous times, either while explaining it to someone, or when they feel like justifying their actions.
- Filler Villain: The only major example in the anime. Later they just stretched manga arcs by filling them with plot-irrelevant Monster of the Week fights.
- Living with the Villain: They attend Juuban Junior High School in their human disguises, right alongside Usagi, Ami and Makoto, with neither the aliens nor the senshi knowing the others' real identity.
- Love Makes You Evil: Well, they have a very warped idea about what love is. They assume it's something they can grab with their own hands as if it was an object. The siblings are set straight at the end of their arc.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: En being Red and Ali being Blue.
- Unholy Matrimony: Though by the time they become a full on couple, they're good.

Black Moon Clan
The Malefic Black Crystal
- Dark Is Evil
- Evil Counterpart: To the Legendary Silver Crystal. It was often said that the two powers were equal.
- Evil Tower of Ominousness: A spire of pure black crystal was planted in Crystal Tokyo in the manga, slowly killing the planet's populous.
- Instant Death Radius: The crystal spire slowly kills everything around it with negative energy. Black Lady decides to speed up the process by planting two more into Earth.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: In the manga, Death Phantom wanted both crystals to obtain the greatest power of all.

- A God Am I: A God of Death that is.
- Big Bad: Second season.
- The Cameo: In the manga, he's the one to point Sailor Galaxia to the Galaxy Cauldron.
- The Chessmaster
- The Corrupter
- Crystal Ball
- Diabolus Ex Nihilo: In the anime, where his backstory is removed and it's flat out stated that even the rest of the Black Moon Clan has no idea where he came from
- Doomy Dooms of Doom: Called the "Doom Phantom" in the English dub.
- Eldritch Abomination: In the manga, his true form is planet Nemesis, which isn't so much a planet as it is a planet-sized mass of dark power. In the anime, he's an Energy Being who dwells beyond the Dark Gate, who's Wiseman form is only a projected avatar.
- The Faceless: Until The Reveal, we only see Glowing Eyelights of Undeath under his hood.
- For the Evulz: His reasons for wanting to destroy everything comes down to his preferring darkness and nothingness over the current state of the universe.
- Fighting a Shadow: In the manga, that Grim Reaper we see is just a puppet he used, his real body being Planet Nemesis itself. In the anime, his Wiseman form is only an avatar controlled through his crystal ball that can simply pull itself back together when blown apart.
- Genius Loci: In the manga, he merged with planet Nemesis and made the whole planet is his body.
- The Grim Reaper: Looks like and thinks of himself as one.
- Hypnotic Eyes: His "Evil Eye" power.
- Large Ham: In the anime when he reveals his true colors.
- The Man Behind the Man: Dimande thought he was just his adviser.
- Mind Rape and More Than Mind Control: Poor Chibi-Usa.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Hates all life with an absolute burning passion that is unrivaled even by the other Sailor Moon Big Bads.
- Our Liches Are Different: Several parallels can be drawn to a Lich in Death Phantom's design, to the point where the planet Nemesis could be called his phylactery.
- Rubber Man: Limited to his arms, referred to as the "Beast Hand" in the manga.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When Death Phantom unleashes the full power of his Wiseman avatar to destroy the Earth in the anime.
- Straw Nihilist: He goes on several monologues about the pointlessness of life and how people can never truly love or understand one another, thus it would better to return the universe to nothingness. Though it seems mainly to be an excuse for his God-complex and sadism.

- Authority Equals Ass Kicking: An Unwitting Pawn he may be, but he's still the strongest member of the Black Moon Clan apart from Death Phantom.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Is assumed to be the Big Bad initially by both the audience and the Senshi, but the more the arc goes on the clearer it is that he's just an Unwitting Pawn.
- Crosscast Role: Musicals only. He's played by the very female Hikari Ono.
- The Dragon: Though he's led to believe he's the Big Bad by Wiseman.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He was a massive jerk and leads the Black Moon clan, but he truly cares for Saphir and is devastated when he's killed by Wiseman. And in the anime, he seems to show some degree of sadness after Esmeraude's death
- The Evil Prince: The more psychotic manga version.
- Forceful Kiss: On Sailor Moon, in the manga. He tries it in the anime too, but Tuxedo Mask stops him in time.
- A Glass of Chianti
- Go-Go Enslavement: Dolls up Moon in a pretty skimpy gown when he kidnaps her.
- Hypnotic Eye: In the anime, he can open a hypnotic third eye in his forehead, and even shoots a magic beam from it once. In the manga, he has an "Evil Eye" too (it's even called such), but this version is used almost exclusively to shoot magic death beams.
- I Have You Now, My Pretty: To Sailor Moon. In the anime, he makes up for this by Taking the Bullet for her later.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Anime and Musical versions. Even though he essentially tried to rape Sailor Moon and abuses his own brother, he still wanted to ultimately do what was right. He redeems himself in the anime by sacrificing himself to save Sailor Moon's life and in the Musicals he actually gets reborn as a Earthling!
- Man in White
- Man of Wealth and Taste
- Omnicidal Maniac: In the manga, he goes batshit insane after being forced to kill Saphir, who was under Death Phantom's mind control and finds that Death Phantom merged with Nemesis, meaning he has no chance of killing him, and tries to erase all of the space/time by causing a Temporal Paradox.
- Pietà Plagiarism: In the anime, he carries Saphir's lifeless body in his arms.
- Purple Eyes
- Redemption Equals Death: In the anime.
- Stalker with a Crush
- Theme Naming: After the gemstone diamond.
- Tragic Villain: In the manga. There's no redemption for him, as Death Phantom corrupts him beyond all hope, but his case is still presented as a sad one nevertheless.
- Villainous Crush: On Sailor Moon.
- White Hair, Black Heart
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: In the manga, he despised the idea of immortality, which got him imprisoned.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: The anime version. His original goal, before being corrupted by Death Phantom and his lust for Neo-Queen Serenity, was to conquer the Earth so that the people of Planet Nemesis could live better lives there.
- Yandere: For Sailor Moon, so very much.
- Anti-Villain: Mainly in the anime, but to an extent in the manga as well (he tries to kill Sailor Moon, but does so because he sincerely believes she and her Silver Crystal are the source of all problems.)
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In the manga, which leads to his death.
- Crosscast Role: Musicals again.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: In the anime, he's held by both Moon and Tuxedo Mask as he perishes.
- Evil Genius: In the manga. Only hinted in the anime, where we know he creates the Dark Crystals that Esmeraude plants around but we don't see him making them.
- Green-Eyed Monster: In the anime he admits to Esmeraude that he's jealous of Sailor Moon due to how obsessed Dimande is with her, but doesn't reach Crazy Jealous Guy extremes.
- Identical Stranger: To Mamoru.
- Love Hurts: In the anime, it's hinted that he's the reason why Petz hates men. They sort-of reconcile... right before he dies. And this is not counting his conflicted thoughts on Dimande, either, whatever their nature is.
- Only Sane Man: He's the only member of the Clan who voices doubts about the whole "Change the future by destroying the world of the past" plan as a good idea and was suspicious about Wiseman using them all from the very beginning.
- Redemption Equals Death: In the anime.
- Rubber Man: Was given Wiseman's "Beast Hand" technique towards the endgame in the manga.
- Tall, Dark and Snarky
- Theme Naming: After the gemstone sapphire.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Esmeraude in the anime.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Though it's more black with a slightly blueish tint.

- Bad Boss: Was planning on sacrificing the Four Sisters from the very beginning so that he could get all the glory of capturing Chibiusa himself.
- Averted in the manga, he actually shows the most concern for their clan as they drop like flies. Or at least is the only one who cares to mention it.
- Bastard Boyfriend: While he wasn't exactly Kooan's boyfriend, he shows MANY of the signs of the trope towards her.
- Evil Redheads
- Killed to Uphold the Masquerade: By Wiseman in the manga.
- Smug Snake: Especially in the anime.
- Theme Naming: After the gemstone ruby.
- You Have Failed Me: To an already mentally-unstable Kooan, in the anime. He handed her an explosive MacGuffin, telling her to kill herself and the Senshi with it as a proof of her love for him. The Senshi destroy it, Koan has a heartbreaking Villainous Breakdown and attacks them in a blind rage, but Mars stops her and makes her come back to her senses. Moon then purifies Kooan and gives her a normal life.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: To Petz, in the anime. He turned her into even more of a Psycho Electro than she already was, then revealed this in the middle of a battle that she and Calaveras were losing, and used the MacGuffin that was controlling Petz to create a black hole. But the girls survived and won, and Moon again purified the sisters. And later, Esmeraude leaves him to die in his spaceship because he's not useful to Prince Dimande anymore, in an Ironic Echo of what he did to the girls.

- Adaptational Heroism: In The Nineties anime, their roles are expanded with sympathetic backstory, and they each perform a Heel-Face Turn against the Black Moon Clan, finally committing to normal human lives. In the manga, they're killed and forgotten like any other Monster of the Week.
- Affably Evil: Berthier.
- Ascended Extras: In the anime. In the manga they only appear briefly, have short fights with their Senshi counterpart before getting killed by Usagi.
- Berserker Tears: Koan in the anime when Rubeus pulled a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness on her, sending her into a frenzy in which she attacked Moon, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter.
- Crosscast Role: Petz in the second Black Lady musical. Only time a male actor played a female character.
- Dark Action Girls: They are not slouches when it comes down to a fight, Koan especially, who has gone toe-to-toe with Sailor Mars and even managed to cripple the Senshi in a fight.
- Driven to Suicide: Koan is ordered to kill herself by Rubeus, and Berthier tries to kill herself after her plan to capture Sailor Mercury fails and her sisters tell her that they want nothing to do with her anymore. Also, Petz attempts a Redemption Equals Death in order to stop the mess she'd created, but her sisters forgive her already and prevent this.
- Does Not Like Men: Petz in the anime, after Saphir left her. This changes when she reconciles with him. Right before the dude kicks it.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Koan and Petz. They have the fair skin down while Koan has more dark blue/indigo hair and Petz has very dark green hair.
- Femme Fatalons: Koan.
- Flat Character: In the manga due to them getting killed before any of them can display any personality.
- Four Girl Ensemble
- Four Is Death: Manga only.
- Her Heart Will Go On: Anime only. As soon as Saphir and Petz get back together, he's brutally killed off.
- Love Makes You Evil: In the anime, Koan is in love with Smug Snake Rubeus and seeks for his approval. He only cares about using her for his plans.
- Love Martyr: Poor Koan, to Rubeus.
- Love Redeems: Also in the anime. After Koan had her Heel-Face Turn, she helped Berthier have hers, and then Cadaberas and finally Petz came to the other side.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad
- Psycho Electro: Petz.
- The Psycho Rangers: Are basically the Black Moon counterparts to the Inner Senshi. This extends down to their attacks. Koan used "Dark Fire" Berthier attacks with Dark Water, Petz uses Dark Thunder and Calaveras uses the Dark Love whip. They go all the way with getting their own Evil Counterpart personalities to the Inner Senshi in the anime as well.
- Spared by the Adaptation: They all get killed off in the manga, while Moon purifies them in the anime.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Cooan or Kooan? Beruche or Berthier? Calaveras is an exception: she's named after a gemstone named after Calaveras County California.
- Theme Naming: Petzite, berthierite and kooankou (kermesite) are also minerals.
- Two Siblings In One: Four, actually, in the manga, where Calaveras channels the spirits of her three sisters after their deaths.
- Vain Sorceress: The four of them.
- Villainous Breakdown: Each of the girls has one before their Heel Face Turns, but none are more depressing than Koan's, who attempts suicide with a time bomb which is thrown out of her hands by the Sailor Senshi, then attacks all the Sailor Senshi in a blind, screaming rage until Sailor Mars protects her from getting kneed in the stomach by Sailor Jupiter and Berthier's, who gives a speech on how she knew Petz and Calavaras would abandon her in her time of need and thinks the idea of being left high and dry is funny, then snaps and uses her powers to freeze herself and everyone around her.
- Whip It Good: Calaveras, as the Evil Counterpart of Sailor Venus.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Koan and Berthier have actual blue hair(dark blue for Koan, and white-ish blue for Berthier), and Petz has green hair.
The Boule Brothers

(Viz) (EN), Cristina Hernandez (LatAm), Fernanda Figueiredo (PT)
: Yuko Minaguchi
(JP), Susan Aceron (Cloverway) (EN), Cristina Camargo (LatAm), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
- The Antichrist: Both versions, she's main player in Pharaoh 90's plan to enter our universe.
- Demonic Possession: Of Hotaru.
- The Dragon: To Pharaoh 90
- Eldritch Abomination: She turns out to be one of these in the manga, complete with her complaining about how uncomfortable her human body is and her true self bursting out of her human form towards the end of the arc.
- Possibly two-fold in the manga, as Hotaru's basically a cyborg due to her injuries from the explosion that killed her mother when she was a child.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita
- Evil Counterpart: To the Messiah of Good Sailor Moon
- Omnicidal Maniac
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Physically. She's possessing Hotaru and forces Hotaru's body to age up once she takes over in full. Hotaru reverts to normal when she breaks free and awakens as Sailor Saturn.
- ... Which means that Hotaru is going to be one very stunning woman once she grows up (same as Chibi-Usa, if Black Lady's form is what she'll mostly look like). Too bad most fan material seems to have her stuck permanently as a pre-teen girl, even in Crystal Tokyo-era Fan Fiction where it'd make absolutely no sense.
- Prehensile Hair: Her main form of attack.
- Rapunzel Hair: Which she complains about in the manga. Every time she cuts it, it grows right back to absurd lengths.
- Woman in Black
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: To Kaolinite in the anime.
Professor Souichi Tomoe/Germatoid
: Akira Kamiya
(JP), Jeff Lumby (Cloverway) (EN), Carlos del Campo (LatAm), António Semedo (PT)
- Affably Evil: Anime version. Out of all the bad guys in charge of a sub-group of minions, Tomoe is arguably the nicest one. He's seen engaging in small talk with the Witches 5, and simply admits that he's very disappointed whenever one repeatedly fails instead of threatening to have them punished or killed. He even played Twister with them and gave Mimete a pep talk when she was depressed!
- Benevolent Boss: The ONLY evil one in the anime.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: In the anime. Very efficient Mad Scientist. Very quirky when off-duty.
- Demonic Possession: The anime version.
- Disc One Final Boss
- Evil Laugh: In the anime, he has a truly awesome one.
- For Science!: His reason for willingly siding with Pharaoh 90 in the manga.
- Humanoid Abomination: Both the anime (while he's possessed) and in the manga (which he did to himself).
- The Faceless
- A God Am I: In the manga.
- Large Ham: The biggest Ham in Sailor Moon. Exhibit A.
- Love Makes You Evil: In the anime, he was The Professor and he cared more genuinely for Hotaru than in the manga, but was driven towards the Despair Event Horizon in the freaky lab incident that obliterated his wife and assistants and severely injured both him and Hotaru. He only agreed to serve Pharaoh 90 when offered a Deal with the Devil that would save the dying little girl, not knowing that it would get worse.
- Mad Scientist
- Nightmare Face: Slasher Smile with Scary Shiny Glasses? Yes. He looks like a typical "happy face" logo, which is bad enough, but his creepy personality makes it even scarier.
- Non-Action Evil Genius: Despite running an underground syndicate populated by Techno Witches and employing a Hot Witch as his secretary, he displays nonexistant combat skills in human form. His One-Winged Angel forms don't last long either.
- One-Winged Angel: In both the anime and the manga.
- Redemption Equals Life and then Put on a Bus: Anime.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: In the anime, these are one of the two features of his face we can usually see through shadows, constantly hiding it. The second is Slasher Smile.
- Schrödinger's Cast: He's affable, funny, and sympathetic in the anime, but was pure evil in the manga.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Again, anime.
- The Quisling: In the manga, this guy WILLINGLY agrees to help Pharaoh 90 enter our universe despite his plans to merge with the Earth and destroy all life on the planet.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Took several in the anime..
- Transhuman Treachery: Though in the anime he didn't have a choice.
- Villains Out Shopping: He's often seen enjoying tea. In one episode, he DID go shopping.
- White Hair, Black Heart
Voiced by: Noriko Uehara (JP), Kristen Bishop (Cloverway) (EN), Liza Willert (LatAm), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
- Absolute Cleavage: And how!
- Abusive Parents: In the anime, she's very emotionally abusive to her charge Hotaru. Curiously, that's not in the manga at all, and Hotaru's father (who loves her in the anime) is the more evil and abusive one.
- Back from the Dead
- Evil Redheads
- Fiery Redhead
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Sailor Uranus deflects Kaolinite's attack, sending it flying right back at her.
- Humanoid Abomination: Possibly in the anime, definitely in the manga, where she was the first successful human vessel that the Daimons created.
- Kick the Dog: She kills Hotaru's fish and snarks at her when she writes a letter to a former Ill Boy that she idolizes.
- Kill It with Ice: Her first death.
- Knight of Cerebus: Her introduction consisted of her daimon stealing Rei's heart crystal and destroying Usagi's brooch, thus disabling her from transforming into Sailor Moon. In fact, later on, she manages to steal the heart crystals of all of the Inner Senshi, including Usagi's (with the exception of Venus, whose heart crystal was later removed by Eudial.
- Love Makes You Evil: She's in love with Professor Tomoe in both the manga and the anime.
- Only Mostly Dead: Until she is revived by Tomoe.
- Prehensile Hair: Before her first death, Kaolinite used her hair to attack quite frequently.
- Sacred Hospitality: When Usagi and Chibi-Usa come to visit Hotaru, she cannot attack them.
- Schrödinger's Cast: Her role in the manga is largely different than her role in the anime. In the manga, Kaolinite is the Magus the Witches 5 report to, and she also uses a mystical well.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Kaori, Kaorinite, Kaori Nite, Kaori, Kaoli Night, or Kaori Night?
- Theme Naming: Yep. The mineral kaolinite.
- Unholy Matrimony: To a degree, with Tomoe. More blatant in the anime, where it's specifically mentioned that he somehow resurrected her after the Senshi killed her, and then there's a scene where she masssages his shoulders as Tomoe confides his upcoming plans on her.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Is given this in the anime, courtesy of the recently-awakened Mistress 9. Might have been a revenge for her abuse of her host, Hotaru.
- Wicked Stepmother: More or less is this to Hotaru in the anime; she is actually nice to her in the manga, though, but Hotaru still doesn't like her.

Ptilol voiced by: Rumi Kasahara (JP), Susan Aceron (Cloverway) (EN), Monica Villaseñor (LatAm)
- Ascended Extras: Eudial and Mimete in the anime, where they are multi-episode villains due to the need for the anime adaptation to stretch things out compared to the manga.
- Back from the Dead: All of them are killed off individually in the manga, but then resurrected by Kaolinite to fight the Sailor Senshi all at once.
- Blown Across the Room: After Usagi transforms into Super Sailor Moon, Eudial attempts to fry her, however Super Sailor Moon deflects her attack, sending it back at her and causing her to fall out of a stain glass window.
- Butt Monkey: Eudial very frequently ended up like this, and to a smaller degree, so did Mimete.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Boy howdy. Eudial, Mimete and Tellu especially, these girls should be in a picture dictionary right next to "disloyal", if only to each other. At times it seems that the Senshi could just sit back and the villains would all kill each other before they had to worry about the Witches 5.
- Combat Pragmatist: In her battles against the Sailor Senshi, Eudial discarded magic or complicated plans and used guns that could extract an Heart Crystal faster than the Daimons (which she brought with herself only to provide cover for her escape), flamethrowers capable to overpower Sailor Moon's attacks, and even a few dozens machine guns! The latter served to show why you don't just shoot the Sailor Senshi: the machine guns shot and hit Sailor Neptune until they ran out of ammo, and, while battered, she wasn't even bleeding.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Creepy Twins: Cyprine and Ptilol.
- Destination Defenestration: Eudial, after Super Sailor Moon deflects her attack. Astonishingly, she survives... but only for a few minutes.
- Disney Villain Death: Due to Mimette's antics, Eudial and her car go straight off a cliff, landing into the ocean below.
- The Ditz: Mimete... at first...
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: An anime scene where Mimete and Professor Tomoe are playing Twister has Mimete throwing her head back, lifting a bare leg and pretty much moaning suggestively as they do so... It went uncensored outside Japan, and in the case of the U.S. dub for Cartoon Network, amped up to sound more sexual than originally intended (but at the same time, not so much that it can be mistaken for porno).
- Drives Like Crazy: Eudial, so much. Nice Car Fu Running Gag, indeed.
- Dropped a Bridge on Him: In the anime, Mimete transports herself into a huge TV screen, which is supposed to make her even more powerful. Just as you think the senshi are in for an epic battle, Tellu walks in and pulls the plug, trapping her in the TV forever.
- Emotionless Girl: Viluy, Ami's rival. Ami herself lampshades the trope by lamenting how Viluy only believed in machines after Viluy's Karmic Death.
- Enemy Civil War: In the anime the girls backstab and kill each other without any second thoughts.
- Every Car Is a Pinto: Mimete rigs the brakes in Eudial's car, so when she is driven off of a cliff, there is a giant water "explosion."
- Evil Diva: Manga Mimete. Anime Mimete is a wannabe.
- Evil Redheads: At least three of the girls had red or orange hair: Eudial, Mimete, and Ptilol, though Mimete is more strawberry blonde.
- Fate Worse Than Death: Mimete in the anime is left trapped inside a computer in the anime. Since she was converted to energy, and energy can't be destroyed, that means it's an eternal sentencing for her.
- Fangirl: In the anime, Mimete tended to attack her favorite idols. By her logic, people who were succesful and beloved had to possess very bright Heart Crystals.
- Fiery Redhead: Eudial and Ptilol.
- Geeky Turn-On: Oh, those labcoats and glasses!
- Go-Karting with Bowser: Mimete and Minako in episode 114.
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: Tellu is killed by one of her own flowers. Viluy is erased by her own nanomachines. Cyprine and Ptilol are tricked into shooting each other.
- Humanoid Abomination: In the manga, where they are really Daimons. In the anime, they're likely just former Muggles who learned Functional Magic and Science.
- Idol Singer: Mimete masquerades as one under the name of Mimi Hanyuu. In the manga she's very successful and popular, but in the anime she's more of a wannabe.
- Improbable Weapon User: Eudial's Fire Buster II is basically a vacuum cleaner that can shoot fire.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Eudial and (especially) Mimete.
- Karmic Death: The computer Mimete was left trapped in was built by Eudial, whom she murdered earlier. Cyprine and Ptilol died when hit by each other's attacks. Tellu and Viluy's own creations turn against them.
- Magic Brakes: This leads to Eudial's downfall.
- Meganekko: Eudial and Mimete wear glasses when not in action.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Mimete actually screwed things up for the Death Busters pretty badly by killing Eudial. Since Eudial knew who Sailor Moon really was and knew she had the Holy Grail, there's a good chance the Death Busters could've gotten the Grail from her if they had time to plan it out. But with Eudial dead no one else learned this information, so Mimete had set her team back so far it was as if she directly helped the Sailor Senshi.
- No Honor Among Witches: Nope. None at all, in the anime. They all want the glory for themselves, and don't care what they have to go through to get it, even each other. Eudial dies due to Mimete sabotaging the brakes on her car as she wanted to get her chance to fight the Senshi, and Mimete is left imprisoned in a machine by Tellu just as she's about to fight the Senshi.
- Oh, Crap: Cyprine and Ptilol have one in the anime before they're wiped out by their own attacks, making their's the only Witches 5 death to have some comedic value to it.
- Psycho Rangers: To the Senshi in the manga. Eudial to Mars, Mimete to Venus, Viluy to Mercury, Tellu to Jupiter, and Cyprine could count as one to Sailor Moon.
- Running Gag: The sign on the door of their office reading "Witches 5". After Eudial is killed we see a piece of paper has been taped over the 5 so that it now reads "Witches 4". And the episode after Mimette is defeated the door now reads "Witches 3" and so on.
- Also, Eudial's car popping out from increasingly absurd places, ranging from the subway (first time) to the elephants cage at the zoo (the episode where she targeted Minako).
- Schrödinger's Cast: In the manga they all work for Kaolinite rather than Tomoe, are closer to being actual witches, and work fairly well together rather than backstab one another.
- Self-Disposing Villain: In the anime, all of them. Sure, the Senshi helped here and there, but these girls were so busy killing each other and/or being cocky idiots that the Senshi could've probably just twiddled their thumbs and waited.
- Single-Minded Twins: Cyprine and Ptilol. It's more of them actually being two halves of the same person though. Ptilol is actually described as an extension of Cyprine's power.
- Smug Snake: Each one of them seem to think themselves more skilled than they actually turn out to be, especially in the anime.
- Stock Shoujo Bullying Tactics: In a rather memorable scene, Eudial's locker is sabotaged by Mimete and filled with her much hated snails.
- Techno Witches
- Theme Naming: Eudialite, mimetite, tellurite, viluite, cyprine and ptilolite are indeed minerals as well.
- Villains Out Shopping: In one episode, they play Twister. Prof. Tomoe also joins them.
- Why Did It Have To Be Snails?: Eudial hates snails. This eventually leads to her downfall because Mimete not only tampers with her car, but puts some snails in the brakes to make her panic more.
Dead Moon Circus
- Bright Is Not Good: Hoo boy.
- Circus of Fear: And how.
- Crapsaccharine World: Sorta. It's a shiny, pretty, magical place that gives you lots of fun when you're attending its shows, but once you learn what's truly inside... aaaaaahhhhhhh!!
- Obviously Evil: You know something isn't good when it's called "Dead Moon." And nearly everything affiliated with the circus is named "Dead Moon ________." This is Lampshaded in the manga, when Mina gets a flyer for talent auditions from the "Dead Moon Talent Agency" and the Senshi immediately figure out it's a trap.
: Hisako Kyoda
(JP), Rowan Tichenor (Cloverway) (EN), Guadalupe Noel (LatAm), António Semedo (PT)
- Breath Weapon: See that face-shaped pattern on the front of her robe? In the anime, it serves as a medium for Nehellenia to talk through, but in the manga it has a far more sinister purpose, since she locks the Senshi in a nightmare in which the "face" fires lasers that seemingly kills Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask. The sequence that follows probably contains some of the most gruesome imagery in the Sailor Moon saga.
- The Dragon: To Nehellenia, despite them apparently being the same person.
- Eldritch Abomination: By all means, she should not exist, yet does.
- Evil Old Folks
- Large Ham: Is often seen screaming and ranting at the top of her lungs at the Trio and Quartet (especially the Quartet, who don't tend to listen.) The scenery often shakes when she does so.
- She's a Man in Japan: Reversed; Zirconia is a woman in Japan, but was bizarrely made male in the English dub, with a hilariously bad Yoda-esque voice.
- Starfish Character: In the Anime Zirconia is the physical manifestation of Nehellenia's desires for ultimate power and eternal beauty as well as her fears of growing old and ugly, created to carry out her will. In the Manga she is seen after the fake Queen Nehellenia shatters to pieces claiming that Nehellenia isn't defeated yet. Nehellenia in the manga reverts to her true form and is revealed to be the true identity of Zirconia (due to having the exact same hat though with a falling apart wig on top of it) while being sealed back into the mirror before it's destroyed by Sailor Moon.
- Theme Naming: After gemstone zircon.
The Amazon Trio (Tiger's Eye, Hawk's Eye, Fisheye)

Hawk's Eye voiced by

Fisheye voiced by
: Akira Ishida
(JP), Deborah Drakeford (Cloverway) (EN), Vicky Burgoa (LatAm), Miguel Feijão (PT).
- Adaptational Heroism: In the 90's anime, instead of being one shot Monsters of the Week, they have existential crises over their lack of dream mirrors and animal natures and befriend the heroes before reverting to animal shapes and being taken to a magical sanctuary.
- Adaptational Sexuality: Gay and nursing a sincere crush on Mamoru in The Nineties anime, Fisheye originally attempted to seduce Ami as the manga's more disposable Monster of the Week.
- Anti Villains: Anime only.
- Ascended Extras: Again, anime only.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Tiger's Eye.
- Breath Weapon: Hawk's Eye.
- Camp Gay: Fisheye in the anime.
- Casanova Wannabe: Tiger's Eye tries to seduce his targets and often fails miserably, despite his good looks.
- Crosscast Role: Musical versions of Fisheye and Hawk's Eye. The latter is played by Hikari Ono who also played Prince Dimande.
- Died Happily Ever After: Anime....sort of.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Look at Fisheye. Listen to Fisheye. Would you believe Fisheye is a guy?
- Evil Redheads: Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye.(Tiger's Eye sort of falls into this if you count orange as red hair.)
- Heel-Face Turn: Anime only.
- High Heel-Face Turn: Apparently extends to crossdressers too, as the very feminine Fisheye is the first of the trio to reconsider the path of evil because he falls in love with Mamoru.
- Honey Trap: The three would separately try to befriend or seduce you. Once you rejected them, they'd try to trap you.
- How they go about it fits with their names. Hawk's Eye and Tiger's Eye both actively hunt their targets, whereas Fisheye baits the target and lets them come to him.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villains
- Knife Nut: Fisheye.
- Likes Older Women: Hawk's Eye preferred to attack older women in the anime. In fact, one of his victims was Ikuko-mama, Usagi's mother.
- Love Redeems: In the anime, Fisheye is the first of the trio to go straight (no pun intended), after falling in unrequited love with Mamoru and befriending Usagi.
- Mind Rape: Literally. In order to find Pegasus, they stick their heads inside of restrained people's dream mirrors in ways that remind you of a sexual assault.
- Punch Clock Villains: The trio usually discuss work sitting around their personal bar, and regard the search for Pegasus as a mere chore they have to do as a part of their circus job.
- She's a Man in Japan: Fisheye was often made female in the dubs. Could be 'cause it's so hard to believe that he is a man in Japan 'cause his male voice actor did such an amazing job sounding feminine.
- Not only that, look at Fish Eye's eyes. They are designed like typical female anime eyes such as the Sailor Scouts have, whereas Tiger Eye and Hawk Eye's eyes follow the typical anime male eye design, which is also why it's easy to mistake Fish Eye for a girl.
- Shy Blue Haired Girl...er, Boy: Averted with the flighty and whimsical Fisheye.
- Spared by the Adaptation: Anime... sort of.
- Two Guys and a Girl: In most dubs, due to Fisheye's gender change.
- Villainous Crossdresser: Hawk's Eye, in the manga. Fisheye, in the anime. Fisheye, though, gets some Character Development and becomes a Wholesome Crossdresser.
- Villains Out Shopping: They're always seen hanging out in a pub.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: The three, in the anime, especially Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye.
- Voluntary Shape Shifting: In the Manga the trio are literally a tiger, hawk, and fish. The Amazon Quartet's magic let them take human forms.
- Whip It Good: Tiger's Eye.
The Amazones Quartet (Cere Cere the Illusionist, Palla Palla the Ball Balancer, Jun Jun the Acrobat, Ves Ves the Tamer)
Cere Cere voiced by
: Yuri Amano
(JP), Daniela Olivieri (Cloverway) (EN), Norma Echevarria (LatAm), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT).
Palla Palla voiced by
: Machiko Toyoshima
(JP), Jennifer Gould (Cloverway) (EN), Circe Luna (LatAm), Olga Lima (PT).
Jun Jun voiced by

(JP), Mary Long (Cloverway) (EN), Mónica Villaseñor (LatAm), Cristina Paiva (PT).
Ves Ves voiced by: Junko Hagimori (JP), Karyn Dywer (Cloverway) (EN), Gabriela Willert (LatAm), Isabel Wolmar (PT).
- Age-Inappropriate Dress
- Anime Hair: Especially Jun Jun's.
- Bare Your Midriff: All of them except Palla Palla.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: In the manga.
- Bokukko: Jun Jun.
- Creepy Child: All of them, but especially Palla Palla.
- Palla Palla's duel nature is carried over with her Lemures. Even though she only summons two, they both had a happy face and an evil face.
- Fiery Redhead: Ves Ves
- Four Girl Ensemble: Jun Jun and Ves Ves share the mannish role, Palla Palla is the childlike one, Cere Cere is the glamorous girl but tries to be mature too.
- Heel-Face Turn: In both the anime AND the manga.
- Albeit in two different ways. In the anime they realize how they were used, break from Nehellenia's control, and steal the Golden Crystal back from Zirconia. In the manga, they had been Brainwashed and Crazy, so Neo-Queen Serenity healed them and restored their Senshi powers.
- Magical Girl: All four are actually Sailor Senshi who are charged with protecting Sailor Chibi Moon. They're really Sailor Ceres, Sailor Pallas, Sailor Juno and Sailor Vesta, the senshi of the first four asteroids to be discovered in the asteroid belt. But only in the manga.
- Manipulative Bitch: Cere Cere has a knack for being this.
- Master of Illusion: Cere Cere, fitting her manipulative tactics.
- Pet the Dog: Jun Jun helps Chibi-Usa's friend Kyusuke with a problem of his in one episode before even learning that he's to be her new target.
- Jun Jun has a tendency to help her targets fulfill their dreams anyways. Believed to be reference to the goddess Juno, for whom the asteroid is named.
- Pinball Projectile: How they extract the dream mirrors.
- The Psycho Rangers: Each Amazon is a direct inversion of her Senshi counterpart (at least in the manga). Cere Cere is calm and refined where Minako is scatterbrained and hyper, Jun Jun is bullying where Makoto is nurturing, Ves Ves is out of control where (manga) Rei is coldly composed, and Palla Palla is childish and ditzy where Ami is mature and brilliant.
- Sealed Good in a Can: In the manga the Amazones Quartet were originally the Sailor Quartet, supposed to be sealed away in the Amazon until Chibiusa was ready for her own Sailor Team. Nehellenia discovered them and brainwashed them. After Neo-Queen Serenity healed them, they went back to their slumber until near the end of the final arc, where they finally awakened to serve Chibi Usa.
- She-Fu: Jun Jun.
- Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Subverted: Palla Palla is outspoken and childlike.
- Stripperiffic: And how!
- The Smart Guy: Palla Palla had the sense to attack groups instead of a single individual.
- Third-Person Person: Palla Palla.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Each role is shared by two girls.
- Tomboys: Jun Jun and Ves Ves.
- Girly Girls: Cere Cere and Palla Palla.
- Tricksters: All of them.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Even more so than the three of them above. When they're not doing their thing, they bicker amongst themselves 99% of the time.
- Whip It Good: Ves Ves had a whip, as befitting her tamer work in the circus.
- You Sound Familar: In the dub Jun Jun was voiced Mary Long, the voice of Naru and Cooan
Xenotime & Zeolite
- Adapted Out: They only appear in the manga.
- Blondes Are Evil
- The Corrupter: They briefly brainwashed Minako before Artemis snapped her out of it.
- Creepy Twins
- Evil Counterpart: They serve as Venus' spotlight enemy since the Amazon Trio only had three members that went up against Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter.
- Knife Nut: Ones that can control knives telepathically.
- Lack of Empathy
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: Their scheme to entrap Sailor Venus was a lot more successful than the Amazon Trio's attempts, to the point that they had actually corrupted Minako and captured Mars, Mercury, and Jupiter. Granted, it didn't last long, but they survived for more than one chapter.
- Obviously Evil: One of them approaches Minako as a talent scout for "Dead Moon Idol Audition," but Minako can fully tell their the enemy and goes along with it for the sake of exposing them.
- Slasher Smile: Both of them.
- The Ball Was The Real Monster: A running gag features one of the Amazon Trio summoning a circus animal (seal, elephant etc.) playing with a ball. The animal quickly proves harmless. The ball... not so much.
- Everything's Worse with Bears: One of the most prominent background Lemures was a blue-skinned girl with a bear's had and giant, mismatched eyes bordering on Uncanny Valley.
- Lighter and Softer: In the manga, Lemures are globs of pure nightmares. In the anime, they're campy Monsters of the Week... Except for the Monster Clown that's sent to kill the Amazon Trio for their failures, seeing as he well, succeeds and mocks them for how pathetic they are and is this close to finish everyone off.
- Harmless Villain: In the anime, they gradually descend into posing no threat at all. One of them tries "attacking" Usagi and Chibiusa by bouncing them up and down on a trampoline without actually trying to hurt them.
- The Heartless: They're what happens to a person who's lost their dreams; in other words, Nobodies. They're nightmare blobs in the manga, making them much closer to the Trope Namer in appearance and application.
- Monster Clown: The Senshi only fight one expressly clown-type monster. And he's not to be trifled with, unlike the rest of the Lemurers.
- In the manga the circus is loaded with more clown-themed individuals.
- Our Zombies Are Different / Our Ghosts Are Different: Nehellenia explicitly calls them "living corpses".
- Theme Naming: Hawk's Eye and Tiger's Eye summoned female Lemures whose names ended in "-ko" while Fisheye summoned male ones whose names ended in an "o" sound. Ves Ves's were identified with "Musume," Cere Cere's with "Jou," and Jun Jun's with "Yarou."
- Undying Loyalty: To Queen Nehellenia. And considering that she made every last one of them what they are... that says a lot.
- Aliens Are Bastards
- Dark Magical Girl
- Fallen Heroines: Many of Shadow Galactica's members in the manga are former Sailor Senshi that have turned evil. Those that aren't (The Sailor Anima Mates) killed the Sailor Senshi of their planets to gain power, though both manga and anime mention that they are being controlled by bracelets that Galaxia has put on them.
- Harmless Villain: Due to the Lighter and Softer nature of the anime, all of them except for Galaxia.
- Hero Killer: Particularly in the manga. With the exception of maybe two occasions, every time one of them shows up, a Senshi either dies horribly or is kidnapped.
: Mitsuko Horie
(JP), Nancy McKenzie (LatAm), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
- BFS: In the anime.
- The Chess Master
- Dark Action Girl: See "Hero Killer".
- Demonic Possession: The anime version of Galaxia tried to turn herself into a can for sealing Chaos and sent her own Star Seed (Chibi Chibi) away to not get her contaminated. Didn't quite work. However, being The Chess Master she made preparations to give the new generation of Sailor Senshi a fighting chance against her.
- Disc One Final Boss: In the manga.
- The Dragon: To Chaos.
- Evil Counterpart: To Usagi, especially the manga.
- Evil Is Petty: In the manga, she once destroyed a planet because a few people on it annoyed her.
- Evil Redhead
- Face-Heel Turn and Heel-Face Turn.
- Fallen Heroine
- For the Evulz and You Have Failed Me: In the anime, these tropes basically sum up Galaxia's treatment of her minions. It's fairly clear that their missions were meaningless and meant only to entertain her to begin with, yet she still kills them off for failures. Moreover, her offer to Uranus and Neptune and her words after it is accepted imply that she cycled through many, many sets of minions this way. In the manga, she's not above offing a failed underling as well.
- Though not explicitely stated, it is heavily implied that she sent her minions out to draw princess Kakyuu out of hiding. After the princess finally reveals herself, Galaxia attacks an episode later.
- Galaxy's Strongest Woman: In the anime, Galaxia was, as befits her name, the strongest Sailor Senshi in the entire Galaxy before her Face-Heel Turn and arguably kept the title to the end, as far as sheer power is concerned.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: In the manga. In a flashback, she destroys a planet just because a few aliens on it annoy her.
- Hero Killer: From the beginning in the manga, and after she gets bored of watching her servants getting whipped by the Senshi in the anime, she kills nearly all of the Senshi herself. In fact the first thing we see her do in the manga is kill Mamoru right in front of Usagi.
- Human Aliens: Yes, she's from a completely different planet. It's not like we've never seen that before.
- I Just Want to Be Loved: This is another reason for her actions in the manga, instead of doing it for pure power.
- Knight of Cerebus: Both versions. In the manga, she quickly causes everything to go to hell the whole arc by murdering everyone except Sailor Moon and ChibiChibi over the course of the arc. In the anime, she's a very serious villain with incompetent henchmen that are shit scared of her with good reason, and essentially causes the season to take a Mood Whiplash whenever she appears.
- Lady of War
- Nietzsche Wannabe: The manga version which was convinced that the world was horrible and the life was worthless, seeking power to justify her existence through remaking the galaxy.
- No Name Given: Her real name is never stated in either the manga or the anime.
- Omnicidal Maniac: She wiped out all life on multiple planets in both anime and manga.
- One-Winged Angel: In the anime, Chaos's manifestation is basically powered-up Galaxia. With actual demonic wings and a black uniform.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Sailor Galaxia has enough power to casually destroy planets.
- Rapunzel Hair: Long, pretty orange and red hair.
- Redemption Earns Life: In the anime.
- Redemption Equals Death: In the manga. Quite literally; it's the act of redeeming herself that kills her, as the bracelet sustaining her starseed shatters as a result of her Heel-Face Turn. However, it's implied that she's reborn along with all the other dead Senshi in the end.
- Reliable Traitor: The manga version of Galaxia worked for Chaos in the hope to eventually destroy it, and take control of the galaxy. Of course, to gain power that can destroy Chaos, she intended to steal every star seed from every planet in the galaxy, thus clearing them of life, which was Chaos's goal from the beginning.
- Sadistic Choice
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Both manga and anime versions think they're doing what's right and wish to destroy Chaos, though not for any benign reasons in the manga.
- You Have Failed Me: Galaxia won't hesitate to dispose of you if you fail her. You know it's coming when you see her raise her right hand, face-up.
Sailor Phi and Sailor Chi
Star gardeners who watch over the Sailor Crystals Galaxia's other minions harvest. The two are actually directly in charge of the Sailor Animamates under Galaxia's orders.
- Avenging the Villain: After Sailor Phi is killed by Sailor Moon, Chi is so enraged that she shoves her staff straight through Sailor Kakyuu's chest until it reaches the floor.
- Blondes Are Evil: Chi's hair is a darker shade of blonde than Phi's.
- The Dragon: The most prominent reoccurring members of Shadow Galactica besides Galaxia herself.
- Creepy Twins: Possibly. They look alike and have similar names but they aren't outright called sisters.
- Hero Killer: They kill off Lethe, Mnemosyne, the Starlights, and Chi personally kills Kakyuu.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: In the manga, their Evil Laugh is a prominent "OHOHOHOHOHO" as they kill Lethe and Mnemosyne.
- Plant Person: Invoked. Their role as Star Gardeners and Phi's attack "Galactica Plant Blizzard" has more to do with their harvest of Sailor Crystals than foilage.
- Smug Snake
- The Sociopath
- Spell My Name with an "S": Chi's name is pronounced "Kai" and Phi's name is pronounced "Fy."
- Star Power
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: They dispatch Lethe and Mnemosyne the moment they reconsider their alliances.
Sailor Mnemosyne and Sailor Lethe
From the planets Mnemosyne and Lethe. They appear only in the manga.
- Anti-Villain: Mnemosyne and Lethe joined Galaxia because they truly believed she would bring order to the universe, something they desperately wanted since their planets were engulfed in an endless war.
- Heel-Face Turn: Almost. Mnemosyne feels sorry for Sailor Moon and restores her memory after Lethe erases it, then convinces Lethe to join her in helping Sailor Moon. Both she and Lethe then get killed off by Sailors Phi and Chi for turning on Shadow Galactica immediately afterwards.
- Redemption Equals Death: Same as above.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Lethe and Mnemosyne.
- Animal Motif: Except Seiren, they're all based off animals.
- Ascended Extra: Just like most Quirky Miniboss Squads of the anime, in the manga they were killed off extremely quickly, some within the very scene they appeared in.
- The Quisling: According to the manga, every one of them was originally a normal soldier on their respective home planets. They each betrayed and murdered their planet's real Sailor Senshi to pave the way for Shadow Galactica's hordes, and Galaxia rewarded them by making them fake Sailors, hence the "artificial" nature of their names.
- Theme Naming: Sailor + Metal + Animal.
Sailor Iron Mouse aka Nezu Chuukou
: Eriko Hara
(JP), Gabriela Willert (LatAm), Olga Lima (PT)
From the planet Chuu.
- Butt Monkey: Even her death is somewhat played for laughs.
- Fan: She seems more invested in her celebrity targets in the anime by actively following their careers.
- Genre Savvy: She refuses to play along with the hero/villain dynamic and repeatedly walks out whenever the Sailor Senshi deliver speeches. In one instance, she denies hearing anything, at which point the girls throw something at her to get her attention. All throughout the speech Iron Mouse is trying to say she's leaving, but the Inner Senshi just finish up regardless of her protests.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain
- Odango: That look a lot like mouse ears.
- Pretty in Mink: Her gloves and shoulders are trimmed with white fur, in addition to her white fur earmuffs.
- Smug Snake: In the anime. Sometimes played for comedy, though. Even in the episode where she dies.
- Woman in White: Her costume is predominantly white with some black.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In the anime. In the manga, she gets killed in her first appearance.
Sailor Aluminum Seiren aka Reiko Aya
: Kikuko Inoue
(JP), Maru Guerrero (LatAm), Olga Lima (PT)
From the planet Mermaid.
- Absolute Cleavage
- Affably Evil: She's so nice, soft-spoken and polite, it's easy to forget she's a villain. She hands out business cards to her targets. Not so much in the manga.
- Anti-Villain: In the anime.
- Big Eater: She either complains about having an empty stomach or eats any good meal in her surroundings before attacking her victims. Much to Lead Crow's despair.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Though she's the least evil villain on the team outside of battle, once she's in a fight she's absolutely vicious. Lamp Shaded, not so much in the anime.
- Butt Monkey
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander
- Dark Action Girl: In the manga. She wasted no time in killing Mercury and Jupiter.
- The Ditz
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: Lead Crow's.
- Evil Counterpart: In the anime, she's basically Evil Usagi. Not Evil Sailor Moon, Usagi, as her interactions with Lead Crow are disturbingly similar to Usagi and Rei's interactions.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Which makes her death by Galaxia much worse.
- Nice Girl: Rare villainous example.
- Passive Aggressive Combat: She weaponizes her politeness against Sailors Uranus and Neptune by pointing out they're standing on Usagi's dining room table.
Sailor Aluminum Seiren: I don't believe it!
Sailor Lead Crow: That's right, you tell them!
Sailor Aluminum Seiren (horrified): You have your shoes on the table!
Sailor Uranus: It, it was an accident.
Sailor Neptune: We're so sorry!
- Prehensile Hair: In the manga. She uses it to choke Mercury and Jupiter to death, before ripping out their Star Seeds.
- Those Two Bad Girls: With Lead Crow.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In the anime. In the manga, she gets killed in her first appearance.
- Zettai Ryouiki
Sailor Lead Crow aka Akane Karasuma
Voiced by: Chiharu Suzuka (JP), Gisela Casillas (LatAm), Cristina Paiva (PT)
From the planet Coronis, also the homeworld of Phobos and Deimos in the manga.
- Absolute Cleavage
- Anti-Villain: In the anime.
- Butt Monkey: Whenever she had to be the Straight Man for Seiren.
- Dark Action Girl: Taken Up to Eleven in the anime: she sent Venus and Mercury flying into a stone wall with enough strength for their bodies to form craters, and Mars and Jupiter into a greenhouse.
- Dark-Skinned Redhead
- Can't Spit It Out: When asked why she followed her to Earth, a flustered and angry Lead Crow tells Seiren "I came because I was worried about you, my rival!" This is a subversion in that while she does tell Seiren she's worried about her, it's always about their fictional rivalry.
- Evil Counterpart: To Rei in the anime. Her Tsundere habits with Seiren are quite similar to Rei's tendencies with Usagi.
- Evil Red Head
- Hoist By Her Own Petard: In the anime, though she had "assistance" from Tin Nyako.
- Insistent Terminology: She frequently refers to Seiren as her rival, adding in "Eternal," "Former," and "Precious" on a regular basis. But absolutely nothing about the two says rivalry other than Crow repeatedly stating the fact, to the point that she actively hunts for Seiren's targets. It seems the only reason Crow calls Seiren a rival is to get her to take her job more seriously so Galaxia doesn't kill her. It fails.
- Pass the Popcorn: She often loves to stand back and watch when Seiren starts acting vicious on a target.
- Those Two Bad Girls: With Aluminium Seiren.
- Tsundere: In the anime, towards Aluminium Seiren. Even if you don't ship them together, you can't ignore how she nagged on her partner but ultimately cared for her.
- Whip It Good
- Zettai Ryouiki
Sailor Tin Nyanko aka Suzu Nyanko
: Ikue Otani
(JP), Ana Maria Grey (LatAm), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT)
From the planet Mau, also the homeworld of Luna and Artemis in the manga.
- Anti-Villain: In the manga (definately not in the anime, although this is because she's Brainwashed and Crazy.)
- Cat Girl
- Heel Face Door Slam: Sailor Moon manages to partway purify her by hitting one of her bracelets and destroying it; this causes one side of her uniform to turn white and her to be torn between acting good or evil. Galaxia will have none of this and kills her off before Sailor Moon can finish.
- Smug Snake
- The Sociopath: Her Brainwashed and Crazy persona in the anime is devoid of any empathetic qualities whatsoever.
Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon
From the planet Cocoon. The last and most formidable Anima Mate, she appears only in the manga.
- Action Mom: A surprisingly evil variant, though her being a mother isn't touched upon in the series proper.
- All There in the Manual: The artbooks list her as a Samba dancer and a mother. They're also the source of the name of her planet.
- Playing with Fire: Her Galactica Scales attack is fire-based.
"False sailor senshi" used as the Monster of the Week
in the fifth season of the anime. They do not exist in the manga however.
- Affably Evil: Some of them are, well, damn funny. Until they properly attack.
- Body Horror: See below.
- Brainwashed and Crazy - Was Once a Man: If a normal person has his/her Star Seed ripped out, it darkens and the person immediately turns into a phage. Once they're purified by Moon, they turn back to normal and without any memories of what happened.
- Harmless Villain: Some of them.
- Madness Mantra: One of the phage was created from a famous artist named Kengo Ibuki who had the bad habit of breaking his creations while screaming "This... this is imperfect!" whenever he went through artistic slumps. Once he was morphed into Sailor Artist, he retained said bad habit. His cousin Rei/Mars saw him and recognized him as Kengo, as she once witnessed his slumps and managed to calm him down enough for Moon to purify him.
- Meaningful Name: "Phage" comes from the Greek word for "to eat" or "to consume". it also refers to the bacteriophage viruses that infect and replicate within bacteria.
- Monster of the Week
- One-Gender Race: Averted, they were created from both men and women.
- The Ojou: One Phage was created from a Rich Bitch and TV actress named Noriko Okamachi. She was called Sailor Ojou.
- As Long as There Is Evil: Its anime incarnation is literally the evil and malice of all sentient beings across the galaxy coagulated into semi-physical form.
- Big Bad: Fifth season.
- Bigger Bad: In the manga, all previous Big Bads derived from Chaos.
- The Chess Master: In the manga only, where it orchestrates basically all of the bad stuff that happens over the course of the series, and manipulates Sailor Galaxia into working towards its goals, as opposed to possessing her.
- Eldritch Abomination
- God of Evil
- The Evil Behind All Evils: Only hinted at in the anime, outright stated in the manga.
- Omnicidal Maniac
- Ultimate Evil: Particularly in the manga, where we barely even see what it looks like, though it seems to resemble Metalia. It is only stopped temporarily, and is going to return as practically invincible Sailor Chaos to unleash a devastating war on the galaxy sometime in the future.
- You Have Failed Me: Wouldn't be a true Sailor Moon Big Bad without this trope.
Fiore (Sailor Moon R Movie)
: Hikaru Midorikawa
as an adult and Tomoko Maruo as a child (JP). Steven Bednarski as an adult and Mary Long as a child (Cloverway) (EN), Benjamin Rivera (LatAm)
- Ambiguously Gay: A lot of people believe that he harbors romantic feelings for Mamoru and thinks of Usagi as his romantic rival.
- Anti-Villain: He just wants to make Mamoru happy...
- Entitled to Have You: He believes that he should be Mamoru's only friend and no one else can have him.
- Expy: He resembles the Makai Tree Aliens. The first thing he remembers in life is drifting in space and he doesn't know where he comes from, so the implication is that he IS a Makai Tree Alien.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Fiore is the most Genre Savvy villain in the whole series: He can tell Sailor Moon is Usagi, when she starts to open a can of whup-ass he retreats, and he interrupts a transformation sequence.
- Forgotten Friend, New Foe: To Mamoru.
- Heel-Face Turn: After being freed from the Xenian Flower's power, he gives Mamoru the nectar, which revives Usagi. Seems to be a Redemption Equals Death case as well, though we see him reborn as a child and drifting away into space immediately afterward.
- Love Makes You Evil and Love Makes You Crazy: The Xenian Flower uses his feelings for Mamoru to control him into becoming her willing servant for the destruction of Earth.
- More Than Mind Control: Xenian's hold on him is very physical and emotional as well as mental.
- Only Friend: Mamoru was the only human kind to him during his stay on Earth. Or so he thought.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: As he tortures Sailor Moon and drains her of energy in exchange for releasing the Senshi, he keeps telling her how selfish and stupid and unfit for Mamoru she is. The Senshi tell him to shut his mouth and leave her alone
- Yandere: Is turned into one thanks to the Xenian Flower.
Xenian Flower (Sailor Moon R Movie)
: Yumi Touma
(JP), Susan Aceron (Cloverway) (EN), Norma Echevarría (LatAm)
- Eldritch Abomination: She's capable of destroying stars and planets in order to survive, and is described as "the most dangerous flower in the universe".
- Omnicidal Maniac
- The Power of Hate: She pours hatred into her host's heart, causing them to fall under her spell and carry out her every whim. Eventually, she becomes powerful enough to destroy the entire planet along with the unfortunate individual whom she had deceived.
Princess Snow Kaguya (Sailor Moon S Movie)
: Eiko Masuyama
