This page covers the villains of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. If you want to return to the rest of the characters, [[Characters/SailorMoon click here]].


[[folder:In General]]
* AscendedExtra: In the anime, characters making up the QuirkyMinibossSquad for the arc get much more development and screentime than in the manga, where they're generally used in the same fashion as a MonsterOfTheWeek.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Quite a few villains in the manga were good guys before being subjected to this by the main antagonist of their arc, most notably the Four Kings of Heaven, Black Lady, and the Amazoness Quartet.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: In the manga, if they're not the BigBad or at least TheDragon, expect every villain to get quickly and unceremoniously killed off shortly after appearing.
* HeelFaceTurn: 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 HeelFaceDoorSlam, though.
* LaughablyEvil: Most of them in the anime, with the BigBad of each arc as an exception, especially Esmeraude, Mimete, Eudial, Sailor Iron Mouse, Sailor Aluminum Seiren, the Amazon Trio and the Amazoness Quartet. The Spectre Sisters even have their moments when they focus more on applying make-up on their faces over their mission. So do [[{{Adorkable}} Ail]] and [[{{Tsundere}} An.]] Even [[LargeHam Professor Tomoe]] has his moments, even though most can be played in a creepy manner. So does the MonsterOfTheWeek {{Mook}}s, especially in the second, third, fourth and fifth seasons. Averted in the manga.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: Pretty much every main villain has one. The Dead Moon Circus gets TWO.
* ShooOutTheClowns: When the QuirkyMinibossSquad has been defeated (or reformed), then you ''know'' things will get serious.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Many, ''many'' villains who get reformed in the anime were mercilessly destroyed in the manga.
* ThemeNaming: Almost all of the villains are named after a mineral or gemstone. Most of said stones are green.

!'''Dark Kingdom'''

[[folder:In General]]
%%* AbusivePrecursors
%%* DarkIsEvil
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Of Queen Nehellenia in the manga. Nehellenia put a curse on Silver Millennium when Princess Serenity was a baby, promising that the kingdom would be destroyed and Serenity would die before she was old enough to be queen. This retroactively meant that Queen Metalia and the Dark Kingdom were the unassuming tools that fulfilled Nehellenia's curse. It's also likely this means that Nehellenia is responsible for Metalia's creation.]]

[[folder:Queen Metalia]]
!!'''Queen Metalia'''
->'''Voiced by''': Noriko Uehara (original series), Youko Matsuoka (''Crystal'') (JP), Maria Vacratsis ([=DiC=]), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (Viz) (EN)

An incorporeal demonic force born from the sun that plots to use the Silver Crystal to TakeOverTheWorld.
* BadBoss: In the Canadian dub, she had a tendency to either stroke Beryl's ego by calling her "my queen" or flat out call her incompetent. Two notable examples have her telling Beryl "You've finally succeeded at something," and in the last episode we have Beryl groveling for more power:
-->'''Negaforce''': Don't whine at me, Beryl! You're nearly as incompetent as your minions. I should abandon you, but I'm giving you this last chance!
* DarkIsEvil: Incredibly ironic considering she came from the sun.
* DemonicPossession: Uses this on Queen Beryl for the final battle in the anime.
* DemotedToExtra: Gets featured a lot less in the 90s anime in favor of Beryl, and the original [=DiC=] dub cuts her involvement down even more.
* DiabolusExNihilo: She basically just appeared one day due to some corrupted radiation from the sun in the manga; in the anime, it's never explained where she came from. However, in the manga, [[spoiler: when it's revealed that Queen Nehellenia cursed Silver Millennium to be destroyed, it makes it likely Metalia was created ''because'' of this.]]
* DubNameChange: In the Canadian dub, she's referred to as "The Negaforce" and lacks a gender.
* EldritchAbomination: She's a life-hating spirit born from solar radiation, as stated outright in the manga and implied in the anime.
* EnergyAbsorption: Her most dangerous ability in the manga - until the weak spot in it was found, all of the Guardians' attacks just made her stronger.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: And how. The whole "queen" title barely even fits since she's likely planned to kill her own minions eventually.
* GreaterScopeVillain: She's the one motivating Beryl's actions.
* KnightOfCerebus: While it takes a while for her to do anything, when she finally appears in the manga, the plot gets more serious, with the WHAMEpisode following her appearance about Usagi's identity, Mamoru getting brainwashed, and when she finally does act on her own, its a NearVillainVictory.
* NightmareFace: What she looks like in the manga. Briefly seen in the anime.
* OmnicidalManiac: You'll find that this trope is quite the norm for ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' {{Big Bad}}s.
%%* SealedEvilInACan
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Metalia? Metallia? Metaria?
* StrawNihilist: Her exchange with Usagi in the final battle shows her as this.
* TeethClenchedTeamWork: Her and Beryl merging in the anime was done because it was the only available option left for both of them, as Metalia herself could never truly be freed without the Silver Crystal, and Beryl needed some sort of sustaining power or she'd die.

[[folder:Queen Beryl]]
!!'''Queen Beryl'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KeikoHan (original series), Creator/MisaWatanabe (''Crystal'') (JP), Naz Edwards, Jill Frappier (flashback in a later episode) ([=DiC=]), Creator/CindyRobinson (Viz) (EN), Belinda Martinez ([=LatAm=]), Alessandra Araújo (PT-BR), Fernanda Figueiredo (PT) Irene Lindh (Sweden)
->'''Portrayed in ''PGSM'' by''': Aya Sugimoto
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Yuri Nishina, Miyazawa Akiko, Midori Hatsukaze

Once an ordinary Earth woman, her obsession with winning Prince Endymion's love dragged her into Metalia's clutches; now she plans to use Metalia to get him back at any cost.
* AbsoluteCleavage: ''Especially'' in the live action, where she was portrayed by a very... talented... porn actress.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Although most villains were softened in the transition from the manga to the anime, Queen Beryl was instead changed from a tragic victim of manipulation by Metalia to a completely unsympathetic villainess who loyally served Metalia.
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: Her plan for the kidnapped Endymion.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: In the anime, when fused with Metalia.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking:
** Averted in the anime, surprisingly. While certainly a powerful sorceress, one rose from Endymion fatally wounds her. [[OneWingedAngel Metalia's power helps her bulk up afterwards, though.]]
** Played straight in the manga, with her nearly beating the Sailor Guardians on her own before she's killed by Minako.
* BigBad: She is the first main antagonist of the first season and of the ''Sailor Moon'' series in general.
* CardCarryingVillain: In the 90s anime. It helps that's she's given an ''incredibly'' stereotypical "evil villainess" voice.
%%* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* DiscOneFinalBoss:
** In the manga, where she was 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 isn't all that difficult either (due to some epic GenreBlindness on her part).
* TheDragon: She is Metalia's subordinate.
* DragonInChief: In the 90s anime and live action versions because Metalia is DemotedToExtra.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: In the manga and Crystal it's revealed that she intends to use the power of the Legendary Silver Crystal to take over the world herself and control Metalia. [[DiscOneFinalBoss She never gets the chance to do so]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: The Viz dub gives her a rather low pitched voice, especially in comparison to the Sailor Guardians.
%%* EvilRedhead
%%* FieryRedhead
%%* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* GreenEyedMonster and LoveMakesYouEvil: 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 90s anime, the first part of her backstory wasn't used.
* HeelFaceTurn:
** It's rather interesting that later re-tellings of the DK arc seem to do this to her to some extent, so much so that one might suspect it stems from a desire to do so to begin with. It's very present in some fanfiction, but to have both ''VideoGame/SailorMoonAnotherStory'' 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 [[UptoEleven 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 ''Theatre/SeraMyu'' musicals in which she appears as a secondary villain to Galaxia.
* IgnoredEpiphany: 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's too late to turn back.
* OneWingedAngel: Her most powerful form in the anime, after Metalia merges with her.
* SpikesOfVillainy: She has a pair of spikes on her shoulders for some reason. They're likely some sort of decorative Jewelry given she didn't have them as a normal woman.
* TheStarscream: In the manga and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' she hoped to keep the Silver Crystal for herself, and in the live action series planned to use it to control Metalia.
* ThemeNaming: After the mineral beryl.
* TookALevelInKindness: 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.
%%* VainSorceress
%%* WickedWitch
* {{Yandere}}: Towards Endymion.
* YouHaveFailedMe: In the 90s anime, she kills 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.

[[folder:The Four Heavenly Kings]]
!!'''The Four Heavenly Kings (Shitennou)'''
[[caption-width-right:350:From left to right: Kunzite, Zoisite, Nephrite, and Jadeite.]]

Queen Beryl's four generals who are tasked with gathering energy from humans for Queen Metalia's awakening.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the manga and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' they were Endymion's brainwashed bodyguards who genuinely cared for each other even while evil. The 90s anime turned them into villainous rivals who were more than happy to backstab each other when they got the chance.
* AllThereInTheManual:
** Their past lives as possible lovers to the Sailor Guardians were never mentioned in the anime. In the manga, we only get to see [[spoiler: Kunzite making some teasing remarks about Princess Serenity to Sailor Venus, who blushes when she hears him. The ''Sailor V'' manga confirms there was a relationship between the two, much to the disappointment of would-be-BigBad Adonis. And Jadeite in the manga lusts after Rei when he sees her in the present.]]
** The manga also had a particularly [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5woehsCav1qfjr18.gif infamous picture]] of the four Guardians and the Shitennou coupled off, which Naoko Takeuchi said [[http://fragileicicle.tumblr.com/post/25495078150/could-someone-please-explain-the-whole-sailor-venus 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 ''Theatre/SeraMyu'' 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.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In the manga, ''Crystal'', and the live-action adaptation. In the 90s anime they aren't even human, technically.
* DeadPersonConversation and SpiritAdvisor: In the manga and ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', their spirits appear before Mamoru, whose generals and bodyguards they were in their Silver Millennium incarnations, to cheer him up and offer advice.
* DeathByAdaptation: 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 and ''Crystal''. Not so in the 90s anime, where the removal of their backstory and connection to Mamoru renders it impossible.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: In ''Crystal'', [[spoiler:Metalia quickly disposes of them once they break free of their brainwashing.]]
* FlatCharacter / GenericDoomsdayVillain: With exception of Kunzite, none of them have much, if any, personality in the manga.
* FourIsDeath: Although the four of them never appear together out of flashback in the first anime. Averted in ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'', where the four Shitennou do appear all at the same time in Chapter 4 in front of the Sailor Guardians near the ending of the chapter.
* LostInTranslation: "Four Heavenly Kings" is the literal English translation of "''shitennou''," the Japanese name for the four Buddhist gods of the cardinal directions, and the term has given rise to a whole host of {{Fanon}} regarding the four being literal kings of various regions of the Earth during the days of the Golden Kingdom. However, in Japan the term "shitennou" is often used to refer to groups of four particularly powerful or accomplished people, and in this context would more accurately be taken to simply mean "Elite Four" (which is how the term is translated in localizations of other works that use it, such as ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Anime/KillLaKill'').
* SueDonym: 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."

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MasayaOnosaka (original series), Creator/DaisukeKishio (''Crystal'') (JP), Tony Daniels ([=DiC=]), Creator/ToddHaberkorn (Viz) (EN), Creator/ReneGarcia ([=LatAm=]), Leonardo Camilo (PT-BR), António Semedo (PT) Olav F. Andersen (Sweden)
->'''Portrayed in ''PGSM'' by''': Jun Masuo
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Susumu Nihashi, [[CrosscastRole Yuuka Asami]], Root

The faintly incompetent StarterVillain of just about every version of the series, who concocts various plots to steal human energy in the Tokyo area.
%%* AffablyEvil: In the Swedish dub.
* AdaptationDyeJob / YouDontLookLikeYou: Averted; Jadeite is the only Shitennou who looks (largely) the same in the manga/anime and in PGSM.
* AndIMustScream: In the 90s anime, Jadeite is eventually sealed inside a crystal and chucked off somewhere after one too many failures. Given Beryl has no trouble outright murdering her subordinates for their failures, this is an especially mean-spirited move on her part.
* {{Bishonen}}: More so in the manga and ''Crystal.''
* CrosscastRole: 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.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: Was [[AndIMustScream frozen in a crystal]] for his many failures in the anime]].
* HypercompetentSidekick: He devolves in an IneffectualSympatheticVillain, 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 YouHaveFailedMe 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.
* AnIcePerson: In ''Sailor Moon Crystal''. [[TakenForGranite Ironic considering how he ended up in the first anime...]]
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Gotta have ''some'' pity for the poor failure. Out of all four Shitennou, he was the only one who failed at accomplishing anything permanent and came across as the most pathetic in comparison to Nephrite (who held on to the energy he stole), Zoisite (who still managed to acquire most of the Rainbow Crystals), and Kunzite (who fought all five Guardians by himself and refused to go down easily).
* {{Jerkass}}: Is the only Shitennou in the 90s anime to have little to no positive qualities. 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)
* LargeHam:
** His [=DiC=] dub voice.
-->"Queen Beryl will be MOST PLEASED! Muahahahahahaha!"
** The new dub from Creator/VizMedia has Creator/ToddHaberkorn, who has been known to play hammy characters in dubs, so...
-->"You can't escape! Now die!"
* ManipulativeBastard
* ShipTease: With Rei in the manga and in Crystal.
* SmugSnake: 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.
* StarterVillain: He's the first one the Sailor Guardians encounter.
* StayInTheKitchen: Told that once to Moon, Mars, and Mercury. [[BerserkButton They were NOT amused]] and resulted in [[CarFu TRIPLE Plane Fu]] being used on him.
* ThemeNaming: After the mineral jadeite.
* UndyingLoyalty: 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.
* VillainousCrush: 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''.
* WakeUpCallBoss: Unlike his youma, he actually manages to overpower Usagi in his fight with her and it takes her, Ami, and Rei to beat him.
* WouldHurtAChild: One of his schemes involves manipulating people with cute pets, and the majority of the victims are young kids (Usagi's brother included). A scheme involving an amusement park also targets a lot of kids.
* YouHaveFailedMe: In the 90s anime, he gets frozen to death inside a crystal by Beryl after several failed attempts to kill the Sailor Soldiers.
* YouMonster: After making his sexist comment, Mars, Mercury, and Moon denounce him as "the enemy of women".

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KatsujiMori (original series), Creator/KosukeToriumi (''Crystal'') (JP), Kevin Lund ([=DiC=]), Creator/LiamOBrien (Viz) (EN), Creator/MarioCastaneda ([=LatAm=]), Flávio Dias (PT-BR), António Semedo (PT) Staffan Hallerstam (Sweden)
->'''Portrayed in ''PGSM'' by''': Hiroyuki Matsumoto
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Toshikazu Seike, Karen Yoda, Koro

Jadeite's somewhat bolder and more flamboyant successor who uses the movement of constellations to find his energy targets.
* AdaptationDyeJob: ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' makes Nephrite a full redhead instead of a brunet.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: The little personality he had in the manga was that of a brash, reckless person, with Takeuchi's notes indicating that he's the type to charge in and quickly get himself killed. Although his '90s anime incarnation is still brash and capable of recklessness (as shown in his interactions with Zoisite and his willingness to mouth off to ''Beryl''), he's nevertheless much more cool-headed, manipulative, and capable of long-term scheming, such that Zoisite and Kunzite both acknowledge him as a formidable opponent. His personality in PGSM and ''Crystal'' is more in line with his manga counterpart.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Unique to TheNineties anime, Nephrite falls in love with Usagi's friend Naru and dies trying to protect her from his fellow generals.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: 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 after all... [[RedemptionEqualsDeath only to die in her arms]].
* {{Astrologer}}: He consults the stars to locate his targets, acquiring vast amounts of energy from humans nearing their peak.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: In the English dub of the anime from the '90s, Nephrite goes by the name "Maxfield Stanton". It was probably picked as the closest thing to his alias in the original Japanese, Masato Sanjouin... but it fits his cover as an eclectic, charismatic billionaire by dint of being a ''really'' cool name.
* BecomingTheMask: 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.
* TheBerserker: In the manga, where he gets himself killed ''very'' easily!
* CatchPhrase: ''"The stars know everything."''
* CoolCar: In the anime, Masato Sanjouin drives a sweet Ferrari.
* CrazyPrepared:
** 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).
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:In Naru's.]]
* EvilGenius: 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.
* EvilRedhead: In PGSM.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He had a gruff and sexy voice in the [=DiC=] dub.
* FamousLastWords: ''"I have ended up lying to you until the very end. Please forgive me. [[TearJerker I'm glad I met you.]]"''
** [=DiC=] English dub: ''"Don't forget me... I just want you to know... [[TearJerker You're in my heart.]]"
** Viz English dub: "Looks like I continued to lie to you until the very end. Forgive me. Thank you... for being part of my life."
%%* FieryRedhead: Again, in PGSM.
* HairTriggerTemper: In ''Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon'', it doesn't take much for him to lose his temper.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Just as he is about to reject the Dark Kingdom for Naru, Zoisite comes in and has him murdered.
%%* HotBlooded: In PGSM.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: How he dies in the 90s anime.]]
* LargeHam: 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 it stood on'' out of thin air. 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.
* LoveRedeems: Anime only, where spending time around Naru initially manipulating her results in him gradually starting to care about her for real.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: In the anime, where he dies saving Naru.
* ShipTease[=/=]VillainousCrush: Ami and Nephrite in the live-action. In ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' possibly like Jadeite with Rei, he recognizes the [[LetsGetDangerous look]] in Makoto's eyes when she fights as Sailor Jupiter.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: The only Shitennou to survive in PGSM, if only reincarnated. [[spoiler:That is, until Princess Sailor Moon destroys the world...]]
* TheStarscream: Implied in the anime that he'd be willing to betray Beryl if he found the Silver Crystal.
* ThemeNaming: After the mineral nephrite.

!!''' Zoisite'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KeiichiNanba (original series), Creator/MasayaMatsukaze (''Crystal'') (JP), Kirsten Bishop ([=DiC=]), Creator/LucienDodge (Viz) (EN), Magda Giner ([=LatAm=]), Noeli Santisteban (PT-BR), Rogério Jacques (PT) Sanna Ekman (Sweden)
->'''Portrayed in ''PGSM'' by''': Yoshito Endo
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Toshitaka Akita, Masakazu Idono, Akira Tomemori, Kaname Aoki, Ryo Saika

The most cunning and manipulative of the Shitennou, though he's also rather vain and petty. [[AdaptationalSexuality In the 90s anime,]] he was in a relationship with Kunzite.
* AdaptationDyeJob: ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' sees Zoisite go from blond to WhiteHairBlackHeart.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: He is radically different in PGSM than in any other adaptations, being much calmer, kinder and more mature.
* AdaptationalSexuality: In TheNineties anime, Zoisite is gay and in a relationship with Kunzite. The manga never addresses his sexuality, but a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen developmental]] piece of concept art by Creator/NaokoTakeuchi has him embracing Sailor Mercury. The ''La Reconquista" musical also depicts a romantic connection between the two.
* AdaptationalVillainy: 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.
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: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.]]
* TheBadGuyWins: In a short term way. He was successful in [[spoiler: getting rid of Nephrite]] and in his first outing as Beryl's top bad guy, he successfully retrieved the red Rainbow Crystal in spite of his encounters with Makoto. He was officially the first bad guy in the 90s anime to actually succeed at their assigned task.
* BigEater: 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.
* {{Bishonen}}: So much so, it was ''very'' easy to change his gender. See DudeLooksLikeALady below.
* CampGay: In the original Japanese version and the Viz dub.
* CherryBlossoms: Always appears surrounded by LOTS of petals. [[spoiler: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.]]
* CombatPragmatist: 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.
* CrazyJealousGuy: Do NOT attract Kunzite's attention!
%%* DarkChick: In the [=DiC=] dub
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:He dies in Kunzite's arms after being killed by Beryl in the 90s anime.]]
* DirtyCoward: He (or "She" if you've seen the original English dub) ''never'' fights fair.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Very much so. The Canadian dub 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 [[GetBackInTheCloset cover up the fact that he's in a homosexual relationship with Kunzite/Malachite]], and (d) to get rid of the VillainousCrossdresser aspect of Zoisite dressing up as Sailor Moon in the episode in which Sailor Venus is introduced.
* EvilIsPetty: He basically had Nephrite killed out of jealousy, and later stabbed Tuxedo Mask for mildly scarring his face.
* GreenEyedMonster: ''Big time'' in the 90s anime, right down to the actual green eyes.
* {{Irony}}: When he kills Nephrite, he tells him "you should be happy to die with the one you love". [[spoiler: Guess what happens to him 11 episodes later.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Has one humanizing trait in the anime and that's his/her love for Kunzite, and even ''that'' can get out of hand.
* LargeHam: In the original anime. Also in the CD dramas, especially during his scenes with Kunzite.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: While he wasn't a huge saint already, some of his worst actions either were to please his lover/mentor Kunzite or because [[GreenEyedMonster he was jealous of someone else]] who had taken Kunzite's attention away from him.
* ManipulativeBastard: Hated Nephrite, and eventually succeeded in getting him killed off.
* MinionShipping: With [[HoYay Kunzite]], in the anime.
* MusicalAssassin: In the live-action series, he channeled his power through the songs played on his piano.
* NoblewomansLaugh:
** In the Canadian English Dub.
** Even manages this in the original Japanese version when disguised as Sailor Moon.
* PetalPower: Often surrounded by pale pink petals, mostly when teleporting.
* PragmaticVillainy: 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.
* RemovingTheRival: When Nephrite in the '90s anime starts aiming to one-up Zoisite by taking over the job of finding the Silver Crystal, Zoisite is ''pissed''. Even if Nephrite hadn't turned his coat for Naru, it's likely Zoisite would still have had him killed.
* SayMyName: "Kunzaito-sama!", especially in the CD dramas.
* SissyVillain: Doesn't stop him from being considerably more effective than either of the previous reoccurring villains, though...it arguably ''contributes'' to it, since his lack of power forces him to rely on his wits and on blatant cheating, which gets the job done often.
* ShesAManInJapan: Is the TropeNamer, thanks to [=DiC=]'s notorious North American version. Becomes HilariousInHindsight, since his first appearance antagonizing the Guardians in the manga and ''Crystal'' has him disguised as a woman. This was averted in Viz Media's uncut and uncensored version, where he is voiced by a [[Creator/LucienDodge man]].
* SmittenTeenageGirl: Kunzite pretty much turns his knees to jelly.
* SmugSnake: Despite his effectiveness as a villain he has plenty of this. He's more bark than bite [[spoiler: until the final episodes of his arc]].
* SophisticatedAsHell: In the Viz dub, he says "hell" and "damn" quite a bit despite his dainty and cultured mannerisms.
* TeensAreMonsters: 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.
* ThemeNaming: After the mineral zoisite.
* TokenGoodTeammate: In ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', 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.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Kunzite in the original anime, to Endymion [=PGSM=].
* VillainousCrossdresser
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: In the live action only. He's blond elsewhere.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Screamed at the top of his lungs and ran for his life when he was surrounded by rats in a sewer. Oddly, he seemed to get over it after being ''covered'' by them.
* TheWorfEffect: In every version so far, Sailor Venus's 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 [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath hacking him into tiny pieces with a]] PrecisionGuidedBoomerang (manga). He survives the encounter in ''Crystal'', but is still summarily defeated.
* WouldHurtAChild: Has no qualms about attacking a little girl he believes is the final Rainbow Crystal carrier. [[spoiler: When he realizes her cat is the one, he's more concerned about the fact that he was wrong than the fact that he attacked an innocent child.]]
* WoundedGazelleGambit: 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.
* YouHaveFailedMe: In the 90s anime, he gets killed by Beryl after one too many failures.
* YaoiGuys: With Kunzite, in the anime (original Japanese version only).

!!'''Kunzite (Malachite)'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KazuyukiSogabe (original series), Creator/EijiTakemoto (''Crystal'') (JP), Denis Akiyama ([=DiC=]), Creator/PatrickSeitz (Viz) (EN), Guillermo Saucedo ([=LatAm=]), Wellington Lima (PT-BR), António Semedo (PT) Olav F. Andersen (Sweden)
->'''Portrayed in ''PGSM'' by''': Akira Kubodera
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Yuuta Mochizuki, Ryuuji Kasahara, Hidetaka Asano, [[CrosscastRole Miki Kawasaki]], Mayu Iseki

The leader of the Shitennou, and naturally Beryl's most powerful underling. He plans to root out the Moon Princess and steal the Silver Crystal.
* AdaptationalBadass: The 90s TV series takes this a step further, showing him defeating the Guardians in a CurbStompBattle and it's only the interference of outside elements such as Prince Endymion that prevents their execution.
* AdaptationalSexuality: In TheNineties anime, Kunzite is gay and in a relationship with Zoisite. ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' briefly depicts a past-life relationship with Sailor Venus.
* AdaptationDyeJob: In ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'' Kunzite's hair goes from the original white to black.
* AffablyEvil: Averted. His Swedish voice actor also voiced Jadeite and that performance was AffablyEvil, but as Kunzite he did a better job.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: In the first anime.
* AmnesiacDissonance: In PGSM, Kunzite became shy, likable amnesiac Shin as punishment for being TheStarscream.
* BadassDecay: In-universe, slightly in the 90s anime. Justified in that he's mourning the loss of his lover, Zoisite. Being saddled with the brainwashed Mamoru, whose tendency to object to underhanded tactics causes him to constantly undermine Kunzite's plans, doesn't help either.
* BadassGay: In the 90s anime only, where he is Zoisite's lover.
%%* BadassCape
%%* {{Bishonen}}
* BiTheWay: In ''[[VideoGame/SailorMoonAnotherStory Another Story]]'' and possibly in the 90s anime. The game, which follows the 90s anime canon while adding elements from the manga, presents a backstory where he and Sailor Venus were known to be lovers in the past. Also, there are moments in the 90s anime where he is seen admiring women, much to Zoisite's jealousy.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: 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.
* CharacterFocus: He's the only Shitennou in the original manga to have any sort of development and prolonged exposure.
* CrosscastRole: The musicals again.
* CurbStompBattle: Dishes these out in all his fights with the Guardians, and is on the receiving end when Sailor Moon has the Silver Crystal.
* DarkSkinnedBlond:. In '90s anime. In the manga and Crystal he's fair-skinned, and in the live-action his hair is black.
* DubNameChange: In the 90s dub, his name was changed 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.
* EvilSoundsDeep: In the Viz Media dub, courtesy of Creator/PatrickSeitz.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: In the '90s anime, his plans to discover Sailor Moon's identity and entrap the guardians are consistently effective and mostly fail only due to the interference of the brainwashed Mamoru, who Beryl insists that Kunzite work with. Additionally, he's strong enough to hold his own against all five guardians, in contrast to Beryl who is laid low by a single rose thrown by Mamoru.
%%* HoistByHisOwnPetard
* LapPillow: Kunzite's first appearance in the '90s anime has him allowing a tearful and humiliated Zoicite rest his head on his lap, after Beryl chooses Nephrite over him for a mission.
* MinionShipping: With Zoisite, in the anime.
* RaceLift: Goes from pale in the original manga artwork to AmbiguouslyBrown in the 90s anime.
* ThemeNaming: After the mineral gemstone kunzite. The [=DiC=] English dub retains the theme by naming him after another mineral gemstone, malachite.
* ShipTease: 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.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: 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.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Invokes this during his death in the original anime, when he calls out for Zoisite to lead him to where his soul rests.]]
* VillainousValour: 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-BigBad villain to be killed by a member of the Sailor Guardians.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: In every adaptation but the live-action.
* YaoiGuys: With Zoisite, in the original anime.

* TheManBehindTheMan: Fluorite is presented as the BigBad in the first chapter, but is later revealed to actually serve Danburite, who in turn is serving Kunzite (who himself serves Queen Beryl, who serves Queen Metaria, who in turn is a incarnation of series big bad, Chaos. ''Whew!'')
* MysteriousProtector: Phantom Ace, who was created well after Tuxedo Mask seemingly to fill that role for Sailor V. It turns out that Naoko Takeuchi was playing off audience expectations, as [[spoiler:Phantom Ace turns out to actually be the BigBad, Danburite]].
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: The BigBad of ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' is a mere underling of the first manga arc's QuirkyMinibossSquad (specifically under Kunzite), though he does get to control a whole subgroup within the Dark Kingdom - the Dark Agency.

A teenage clone of Queen Beryl created to infiltrate the Sailor Guardians's social circle and sabotage Usagi while pretending to be a friend.

* WoundedGazelleGambit: She faints on the path of Mamoru's motorcycle in order to kidnap him and take him to the Dark Kingdom.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: In the Canadian dub. Instead of being evil humans that became evil monsters, natives to the Negaverse seem to just be intrinsically bad.
* AscendedExtra: Morga is the only Youma to appear in the manga, the 90s anime, and Crystal, since she's the very first villain Sailor Moon ever fights.

* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: Called the "Doom Phantom" in the English dub.
* EldritchAbomination: 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 EnergyBeing who dwells beyond the Dark Gate, who's Wiseman form is only a projected avatar.
* EvilFeelsGood: In the English dub of ''Crystal'' he sounds like he's having the time of his life whenever he speaks.
* EvilOldFolks: In ''Crystal'', he sounds like an old man.
* TheFaceless: Until TheReveal, we only see GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath under his hood.
* FamousLastWords:
** Original Japanese: I, Death Phantom, the ruler of darkness, will not be defeated...
** [=DiC=]: NO! This can't be happening! No one is as strong as the Doom Phant-!
** ''Crystal'' averts this, there he just screams before he dies.
* ForTheEvulz: His reasons for wanting to destroy everything comes down to his preferring darkness and nothingness over the current state of the universe.
* FightingAShadow: In the manga, that [[TheGrimReaper 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.
* GeniusLoci: In the manga, he merged with planet Nemesis and made the whole planet is his body.
* TheGrimReaper: Looks like and thinks of himself as one.
* HypnoticEyes: His "Evil Eye" power.

* LargeHam: In the anime when he reveals his true colors.
* TheManBehindTheMan: Dimande thought he was just his adviser.
* MindRape ''and'' MoreThanMindControl: Poor [[spoiler: Chibi-Usa]].
* OmnicidalManiac: Hates all life with an absolute burning passion that is unrivaled even by the other Sailor Moon {{Big Bad}}s.
* OurLichesAreDifferent: 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.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Death Phantom unleashes the full power of his Wiseman avatar to destroy the Earth in the anime.
* StrawNihilist: 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.

* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: An UnwittingPawn he may be, but he's still the strongest member of the Black Moon Clan apart from Death Phantom.
* BigBadWannabe: Is assumed to be the BigBad initially by both the audience and the Guardians, but the more the arc goes on the clearer it is that he's just an UnwittingPawn.

* EvilSoundsDeep: Interestingly enough, however, he manages to be soft-spoken at the same time.

* GoGoEnslavement: Dolls up Moon in a pretty skimpy gown when he kidnaps her.
* HypnoticEyes: 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.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: To Sailor Moon. [[spoiler: In the anime, he makes up for this by TakingTheBullet for her later.]]

Prince Demande's stoic younger brother, a more idealistic soul who disapproves of Wiseman's influence on the Clan.

* GreenEyedMonster: 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 CrazyJealousGuy extremes.
* IdenticalStranger: To Mamoru.
* LoveHurts: In the 90s anime, it's hinted that [[spoiler:he's the reason why Petz hates men. They sort-of reconcile... right before he dies.]] And this is not counting [[spoiler:his conflicted thoughts on Dimande, either, whatever their nature is.]]
* NonActionGuy: In the anime, where he's the only clan member to never directly confront the Guardians, and doesn't do any fieldwork like Rubeus and Esmeraude.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He starts calling out Esmeraude on her failures right when she's taking a bath.
* OnlySaneMan: 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.

* BigEater: While at a bakery, she manages to wolf down [[SweetTooth multiple pastries]] of various shapes and sizes. Apparently, this is because she had never had the chance to eat sweets before.
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Wiseman's power changes her arms into monster-like claws.]]
* ButtMonkey: In the anime, whenever Esmeraude went out in her human disguise, ''something'' humiliating or funny was bound to happen to her. Like completely pigging out at a pastry shop, getting peed on by puppies, etc.
* ClingyJealousGirl: To Demande. (And [[GenreSavvy Wiseman]] takes advantage of this.) She's so clingy that, when Demande kidnaps Usagi, she secretly helps her escape because she ''really'' doesn't want her to stay around; it's even lampshaded by the just as jealous Saphir, since he saw Esmeraude do so and correctly deduced her reasons.
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Courtesy of Wiseman. Except it's [[BatmanGambit a clever trap devised by him]]...]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Both metaphorically and literally.
* {{Jerkass}}: She's quite rude, haughty, and bitchy and looks down on others who she feels are not beautiful, especially when compared to her. In one episode of the 90s anime, the thing she does when [[spoiler: she leave Rubeus to due on his exploding ship as it self destructs is laugh in his face as she teleports away]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler: In the 90s anime, leaving Rubeus to die when he actually seemed to trust her would be despicable... if Rubeus hadn't done the exact same thing to the Four Sisters.]] Thus it winds up as [[spoiler: a KarmicDeath]] rather than a MoralEventHorizon on Esmeraude's part.

Lowest on the Clan's totem pole and supervisor of the Ayakashi Sisters.
* AdaptationalBadass: Manga!Rubeus didn't do much aside from watching everything unfold from the sidelines and eventually deciding to quit when things went awry. 90s!Rubeus, while no better on the bystander aspect, is incredibly manipulative of his subordinates to the point of giving them weapons that would obliterate everyone in range. He could also give a decent fight against Sailor Moon.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the manga, he actually shows some concern for his comrades and is the first of the clan to realize that Wiseman is just using them and tries to turn tail, but gets promptly killed for it. As you will see below, this was ''not'' the case in the 90s anime.
* AssholeVictim: In the 90s anime, where [[spoiler: Esmeraude leaves him to die in his spaceship as it's self-destructing because he's not useful to Demande anymore due to his failure, in an IronicEcho of what he did to the girls.]]

*** ''Crystal'', when he's about to be killed by Wiseman: W-who are you... (in the original Japanese he just says "You're...")
* HateSink: His 90s anime counterpart is by far one of the most vile and loathsome villains in the series, given he has no comedic moments and is willfully exploiting the Ayakashi Sisters to reap the benefits of their success.
* KickTheDog: "Accidentally" crushing the bottle of perfume Koan went out of her way to buy for him right in front of her. The [=DiC=] dub made him even ''worse'', with him going out of his way to needlessly insult Koan just before giving her the time bomb (while in the original he said love didn't belong in their Clan).

[[caption-width-right:300:Top image, left to right: [[KillItWithFire Koan]], [[AnIcePerson Berthier]], [[WhipItGood Calaveras]], and [[PsychoElectro Petz.]]]]

Rubeus' starter minions, given the task of capturing the Rabbit and sidelining the Sailor Guardians.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In TheNineties anime, their roles are expanded with sympathetic backstory, and they each perform a HeelFaceTurn against the Black Moon Clan, finally committing to normal human lives. In the manga, they're killed and forgotten like any other MonsterOfTheWeek.
* AffablyEvil: Berthier is always calm and does bad things under Rubeus's orders.
* {{Ascended Extra}}s: In the anime, they are given more prominent roles. In the manga they only appear briefly, have short fights with their Guardians counterpart before getting killed by Usagi.
* AxCrazy: In the 90s anime:
** Koan goes absolutely nuts after Rubeus's bomb meant for her and the Sailor Guardians is destroyed.
** Petz becomes corrupted by the stick Rubeus gives her to the point of even attacking Calaveras.
* BerserkerTears: Koan in the anime when Rubeus [[YouHaveFailedMe abandons her]], sending her into a frenzy in which she attacked Moon, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter.
* {{Dark Action Girl}}s: 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 Guardians in a fight.
* DarkIsEvil: Especially in the manga. Never mind their allegiance with the Black Moon, but most of the sisters in the manga specialized in the occult. Koan predicted the future and specialized in telling girls they would die young, Berthier was a dowser, and Calaveras was a channeler who spoke with her sister's spirits after they died.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Petz in the 90s anime, after [[spoiler: Saphir]] left her. This changes when she reconciles with him. [[spoiler: Right before the dude kicks it.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: 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 RedemptionEqualsDeath in order to stop the mess she'd created, but her sisters forgive her already and prevent this.
* EasilyForgiven: Berthier seemed to hold no resentment towards Calaveras and Petz for abandoning her right before her HeelFaceTurn. Although considering she saw the same thing happen to Calaveras and Petz, she may have just decided to reconcile with them.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Koan and Petz. They have the fair skin down while Koan has more dark blue/indigo hair and Petz has very dark green hair.
* FemmeFatalons: Koan.
* FlatCharacter: In the manga, where they're [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]].
* FourGirlEnsemble
* FourIsDeath: Manga only.
* GirlyGirl: Every single one of them, at least in the anime.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the 90s anime, all of the sisters get purified by Sailor Moon as humans.
* HerHeartWillGoOn: [[spoiler: Anime only. As soon as Saphir and Petz get back together, he's brutally killed off.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: In the anime, Koan is in love with SmugSnake Rubeus and seeks for his approval. He only cares about using her for his plans.
* LoveMartyr: Poor Koan, to Rubeus.
* LoveRedeems: Also in the anime. After Koan had her HeelFaceTurn, she helped Berthier have hers, and then Calaveras and finally Petz came to the other side.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The four girls serve under Rubeus.
* PsychoElectro: Petz can use her lightning abilities to overpower enemies.
* ThePsychoRangers: Are basically the Black Moon counterparts to the Inner Guardians. 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 EvilCounterpart personalities to the Inner Guardians in the anime as well.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Attempted by Petz in the 90s anime to stop the mess she created due to Rubeus, but it doesn't work out and she is rescued.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: They all get killed off in the manga, while Moon purifies them in the anime.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Cooan or Kooan? Beruche or Berthier? Calaveras is an exception: she's named after a gemstone named after Calaveras County California.
* TakingYouWithMe: In the 90s anime, Berthier invokes this during her suicide attempt on the Guardians.
* ThemeNaming: Petzite, calaverite, berthierite and kooankou (kermesite) are also minerals.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Berthier in the 90s anime, but for a small measure of good. She's the most sensitive of the sisters, and the only one before her HeelFaceTurn to openly admit she cares about the other three. Berthier even said she'd miss Koan after she left.
* TwoSiblingsInOne: Four, actually, in the manga, where Calaveras channels the spirits of her three sisters after their deaths.
* VainSorceress: The four of them.
* VillainousBreakdown: Each of the girls has one before their {{Heel Face Turn}}s in the 90s anime, but none are more depressing than [[spoiler: Koan's, who attempts suicide with a time bomb which is thrown out of her hands by the Sailor Guardians, then attacks all the Sailor Guardians in a blind, screaming rage until Sailor Mars protects her from getting kneed in the stomach by Sailor Jupiter]] and [[spoiler: 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 [[DrivenToSuicide uses her powers to freeze herself]] and everyone around her]].
* WhipItGood: Calaveras, as the EvilCounterpart of Sailor Venus.
* WouldHurtAChild: Both versions. They have no qualms about killing Chibi-Usa, and [[spoiler:Koan kills a little girl on the manga]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Koan and Berthier have actual blue hair(dark blue for Koan, and white-ish blue for Berthier), and Petz has green hair.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In the 90s anime, Rubeus tells Koan to kill herself with a bomb. Then Calaveras and Petz turn on Berthier, forcing latter to attempt suicide. Then Calaveras says this word-for-word to Koan and Berthier, but an AxCrazy Petz fries them and Calaveras, and Rubeus abandons Petz afterwards.

Villainous twins who appear in both the manga and anime, though in vastly different contexts.
%%* CreepyTwins
* DemotedToExtra: Subverted. Their role wasn't that substantial in the manga, but in the anime they go from being full fledged members of the Black Moon Clan to slightly advanced droids.
* DubNameChange: They go from Chiral and Achiral to Doom and Gloom in the original English dub.
%%* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* MeaningfulName: Their names are chemical terms and foreshadow their complex molecular attacks.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Chiral has white hair and is a villain.

->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Mao Kawasaki, Shion Nakamaru, Yui Ito.

Chibiusa's BrainwashedAndCrazy older form, corrupted by her loneliness and self-pity into becoming Wiseman's last and most loyal follower.

* BattleAura: In the Crystal anime she has a black aura around her.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: She is actually Chibi-Usa, but mind raped into believing that no one loved her.
* BrokenBird: In the anime, she claims that her parents abandoned her and that her Luna-P is her only friend. In a subversion, this is because she has been brainwashed into believing she had no friends and that she was abused by her parents. Once she's released, she returns to her non-broken and much more cheerful self.
%%* DarkMagicalGirl
%%* ADarkerMe
* TheDragon: To Wiseman once Diamond's usefulness has been spent.
* DubNameChange: In the original English dub, her name is "Wicked Lady".
* EvilCounterpart: To Sailor Moon.
* FakeMemories: One of the keys to morph Chibi-Usa into Black Lady is having her {{mind rape}}d through this. The other is forcibly infusing her with Dark Energy.
* MoreThanMindControl: In the manga and ''Crystal'' Wiseman exploits Chibi-Usa's deep frustration from being stuck in a body and mind of a powerless nine-year old for 900+ years, jealousy of her mother, and selfish desire to have ''someone'' all for herself, rather than just stuffing her full of FakeMemories. [[spoiler: [[DespairEventHorizon The tipping point of despair]] for Chibi-Usa was realizing that even Pluto, her best friend, has someone else in her life, namely King Endymion; and accordingly she comes back to her senses after seeing dying Pluto reach out to her.]]
* MorphWeapon: Uses Luna-P as one in the 90s anime, transforming it into a ParasolOfPain and other impromptu weapons.
* ParentalIncest: Played straight in the manga and [[Anime/SailorMoonCrystal Crystal]], [[spoiler:she brainwashes Mamoru into believing he's Endymion and turns him into her boyfriend.]] Averted in the 90s anime; [[spoiler:the kissing scene is shown, but is only an illusion to trick Usagi. It doesn't work.]]
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: She's Chibi-Usa, only brainwashed and magically aged up thanks to Wiseman. It's only temporary though: she turns back to normal upon being freed of the brainwashing (by either [[spoiler: witnessing Pluto's HeroicSacrifice]] in the manga, or [[spoiler: through [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight her parents' combined efforts]] ]] in the anime. That said in the Manga she ends up older then she started (though not as old as Black Lady)
%%* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Her dress is red and black.
* ThatManIsDead: Or in her case, "This girl is dead". Says a variant of this in Episode 85 to Sailor Moon after her attempt to undo the brainwashing Wiseman inflicted on Chibi-Usa/Black Lady fails.
-->"Wiseman has given me a new name and a better life as Black Lady. I am ''not'' Chibi-Usa."
* WomanInBlack: Wears a black dress.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: In the anime, though this is part of Wiseman's plot.

* {{Mooks}}: In the manga and ''Crystal'' they're just this, and we're treated to the Sailor Guardians casually dispatching dozens of them bare-handed, Minako and Makoto sometimes doing it even without transforming.
* MythologyGag: In the anime, they dissolve into sand when killed, since in the manga that's what they're stated to be made from.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: In the first anime especially.

!'''Death Busters'''

[[folder:In General]]

* AliensAreBastards: In '''Crystal''' they seek out Earth to make their new homeworld. They don't care this would end humanity so long as their race survives.
* AlienInvasion: Pharaoh 90 uses Daimon eggs to create vessels that contain their alien bodies.
* AllegoricalCharacter: S makes them represent the evils of corrupted adulthood; [[ItsAllAboutMe above everything else]], the Death Busters value climbing higher up the "ladder" in hopes of rewards from their superiors.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: And '''HOW'''. They're the absolute worst at this in the 90s anime. While in the manga they're all killed by the Guardians, in the 90s anime there's very little loyalty between any of them. The only person Kaolinite and the Witches 5 trust in the 90s anime is Professor Tomoe.
** Eudial is killed by [[spoiler: Mimete]] because she wanted her job, Mimete is killed by [[spoiler: Tellu]] because Mimete tried to steal ''her'' job as well, Tellu is killed by [[spoiler: her own plants]], Kaolinite is killed by [[spoiler: Mistress 9 most likely as payback for all the times she abused her host body]], and even ''Mistress 9'' is subjected to this when [[spoiler: she's almost killed by Pharaoh 90]].
* OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers:
** Compared to the rest of the villain organizations, the Death Busters had the smallest connection to the Sailor Guardians beyond the coincidence that Mistress 9 just happened to be inhabiting the body of the reincarnated Sailor Saturn. The group as a whole had never heard of the Guardians or the Silver Crystal before, and in the case of the latter, they only learned of it when Chibiusa showed Hotaru her compact. The 90s anime takes this even further, when Kaolinite actually acquires Sailor Moon's compact for a while but has absolutely no idea just how powerful it is. This is alongside the Death Busters only seeking the Holy Grail, which became a completely separate object compared to the Grail of the manga and had no previous affiliation with Sailor Moon.
** While the other villain groups wanted power to rule, the Death Busters as a whole were committed to simply destroying everything via the Silence in the anime. In the manga they wanted to convert Earth into a second Tau system and use humans as vessels, but the conversion process still would have killed everyone as the Earth is merged with Pharaoh 90, who is only concerned with his survival.


[[folder:Pharaoh 90]]
!!'''Pharaoh 90'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakayaHashi (''Crystal'')

* BigBad: The main antagonist of the ''Infinity'' arc in the manga and the ''S'' season of the anime.
%%* CosmicHorror
* DimensionLord: Of the Tau Nebula.
* EldritchAbomination: In the manga he doesn't even seem to have a corporeal form, appearing as a void of darkness with a pair of glowing "eyes" as its only identifiable features. In the 90s anime, he looks either like a planet or a swirling mass of dark energy.
* FusionDance: In the manga, with Mistress 9.
* GeniusLoci: His goal in the manga, where he planned to merge with the Earth and make it their "second mother planet".
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In the anime, where he isn't even mentioned until near the very end of ''S'' and most of the season is spent building up Mistress 9 as the main threat instead.
* InvincibleVillain: In the manga, since destroying him would have also destroyed the Earth, Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto have no choice but to banish him to another dimension from which he can never reach Earth again. This gives him the dubious distinction of being the only BigBad who is never actually killed in the manga. In the 90s anime, however, he is destroyed by both Sailor Saturn and Sailor Moon.
* KilledOffscreen: In the 90s anime we never see him get destroyed. We see the gateway that's bringing him to Earth vanish, but that's about it.
* TheManBehindTheMan: In the 90s anime, to Mistress 9. This is not the case in the manga and ''Crystal,'' in which he's shown as calling the shots from the beginning and Mistress 9's existence is a late-arc surprise.
* NothingIsScarier: In the anime, from afar he looks like a planet. We're never shown what he looks like up close, but the dead look in Sailor Moon's eyes after [[spoiler: she returns from destroying him in his home dimension]] she emerges from him possibly implies that we're better off not knowing.
* OmnicidalManiac: His goal is to colonize the Earth and, by extension, wipe out all of humanity and replace them with Daimons.
* SealedEvilInACan: Is stuck inside his home dimension, the Tau Nebula, until Mistress 9 can open a gateway to our reality for him either through the Holy Grail (the '90s anime) or Chibi-Usa's Silver Crystal (the manga).
* TheVoiceless: The '90s anime version, aside from some very creepy moans when he finally arrives on Earth. This arguably suited his status as a CosmicHorror better.
* YourSoulIsMine: Has been feeding on human "Hostes" to regain his strength in the manga.

->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Tomoko Inami, Chinatsu Akiyama, Karin Takahashi

* TheAntichrist: Both versions. She functions as the "key" necessary for Pharaoh 90 to enter our universe.
* BodyHorror: '''Crystal''' really shows off the creepiness of Mistress 9's decaying form by having both her body and face twist apart.
* DemonicPossession: She's been slumbering inside Hotaru's body for years, and starts to take over after reacting to Chibi-Usa's Silver Crystal, or, in the 90s anime, [[spoiler: consuming Chibi-Usa's Pure Heart]].
%%* TheDragon: To Pharaoh 90.
* EldritchAbomination: She turns out [[spoiler: to be one of these in the manga, complete with her complaining about how uncomfortable her human body is and her true form [[BodyHorror bursting]] out of Hotaru's body towards the end of the arc.]]
* FusionDance: In the manga, with Pharaoh 90.
* EvilCounterpart: In the 90s anime she is this to the Messiah of Good,[[spoiler: Sailor Moon]].
* InvincibleVillain: In the manga, once she breaks out of Hotaru's body she becomes more or less this and ultimately merges with Pharaoh 90. In the 90s anime, however, she is destroyed after Sailor Saturn awakens from inside her.
* KnightOfCerebus: In both the manga and the anime, her awakening is when things truly start taking a very dark turn, and it results in the [[spoiler: death of Chibi-Usa]].
%%* OmnicidalManiac
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: 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.
* RedBaron: In the 90s anime, she is also known as the Messiah of Silence.
* RedHerring: The 90s anime spends most of the season hyping her up as the BigBad, only for it to be revealed in the last few episodes that she is actually TheDragon to Pharaoh 90, who almost kills her as he makes his arrival on Earth.
* PrehensileHair: Her main form of attack.
* RapunzelHair: Which she complains about in the manga. Every time she cuts it, it grows right back to absurd lengths.
%%* WomanInBlack
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: To [[spoiler:Kaolinite in the anime]], and later is on the receving end of this by [[spoiler: Pharaoh 90]].

->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Shunsaku Yajima, Ryuuji Kasahara, Kaname Aoki, Yuki Kaon.

* AbusiveParents: In the manga. He is very emotionally abusive to Hotaru and used her for his experiments in his own selfish motives.
* AdaptationalHeroism: 90s anime. To start with he is a Type II AntiVillain whose motivation for working for the Death Buster was out of a desparation for finding a method to heal Hotaru's impaired condition. Second, he is a BenevolentBoss; see that entry for more information. Finally, he is a GoodParents who cares about Hotaru, even when evil. It really seem like the only reason he became evil is because [[spoiler:of his DemonicPossession.]] 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! In the manga, however, he's an non-possessed MadScientist trying to wipe out humanity who used his own daughter for his experiments in his own selfish motives.
* BenevolentBoss: The ONLY evil one in the anime. While all the other villains [[YouHaveFailedMe tend to either brutally punish or kill their minions if they fail]], Tomoe only shows slight dissapointment and constantly gives them more than a second chance. He even shows concern about their health and claims that he doesn´t want to lose such talented workers.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: In the anime. Very efficient MadScientist. Very quirky when off-duty.
* DemonicPossession: The anime version, due to A DealWithTheDevil in order to save his daughter.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Appears to be the BigBad at first, and he even has his CoDragons, but in the end he's revealed to be a [[CoDragons Co-Dragon]] himself.
* EldritchAbomination: The creature possessing him in the anime. In the manga, his OneWingedAngel form also counts.
* EvilIsDeathlyCold: In the manga and Crystal, Hotaru and Usagi both describe his hands as being inhumanly cold to the touch.
* EvilLaugh: In the anime, he has a truly awesome one.
* ForScience: His reason for willingly siding with Pharaoh 90 in the manga.
* HumanoidAbomination: Both the anime (while he's possessed) and in the manga (which he [[PlayingWithSyringes did to himself]]).
* TheFaceless: In the 90s anime
* AGodAmI: In the manga.
* LargeHam: The biggest one in ''Sailor Moon''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYeL4Ch0UiY Exhibit A]].
* LaughablyEvil: The anime version.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: In the anime, he was TheProfessor and he cared more genuinely for Hotaru than in the manga, but was driven towards the DespairEventHorizon in the freaky lab incident that obliterated his wife and assistants and severely injured both him and Hotaru. [[spoiler: He only agreed to serve Pharaoh 90 when offered a DealWithTheDevil that would save the dying little girl, not knowing that [[FromBadToWorse it would get worse]].]]
%%* MadScientist
* MysticalWhiteHair: [[spoiler: In both the anime, he managed to uncover [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow unknowable cosmic secrets]] without any magic of his own. Less so in the manga, since while he ''did'' manage some [[LovecraftianSuperpower impressive feats in human engineering]], [[TransHumanTreachery he did have some help]]).]]
* NightmareFace: SlasherSmile with ScaryShinyGlasses? Yes. He looks like a typical "happy face" logo, [[UncannyValley which is bad enough]], but his creepy personality makes it even scarier.
* OneWingedAngel: In both the anime and the manga.
* PutOnABus: In the '90s anime.
* RedemptionEarnsLife: Anime.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: 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 SlasherSmile.
* SchrodingersCast: He's affable, funny, and sympathetic in the anime, but was pure evil in the manga.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Again, in the '90s anime.
* TheQuisling: 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.
* TranshumanTreachery: Though in the anime [[spoiler: [[TragicMonster he didn't have a choice]].]]
* VillainsOutShopping: He's often seen enjoying tea. In one episode, he DID go shopping.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: He has white hair and is the BigBad.

%%* AbsoluteCleavage: And how!
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the anime, she's very emotionally abusive to Hotaru while in the manga she is at least respectful to her while it's actually Hotaru's father who is the AbusiveParent.
* AdaptationalWimp: Zigzagged. Her role within the Death Busters is much more grand in the manga and ''Crystal'', to the point of arguably being higher ranking than Professor Tomoe since she is in charge of the Witches 5 and has direct contact with Pharaoh 90. The anime instead gave the Professor a much larger role, with Kaolinite relegated to merely being his assistant. That said, in the anime she fought all the Inner Guardians to a standstill and almost killed them and Tuxedo Mask before Sailor Uranus intervened, while in the manga she was an AntiClimaxBoss. Her second death at hands of Mistress 9 in the 90s anime was anticlimatic as well, though.
* AntiVillain: In the manga, she wanted to obtain the three talismans and destroy them to prevent The Destruction.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: 90s anime only]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In her expanded ''Crystal'' backstory.
* CameBackWrong: In the manga and ''Crystal'', Kaori was originally a human lab assistant to Professor Tomoe, but when the Death Busters invaded she was struck by lightning. At that point, the woman called Kaori was killed and the vesselized Daimon called Kaolinite was born.
%%* EvilRedhead
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Just before she's about to finish off the Sailor Guardians, [[spoiler: Sailor Uranus deflects her attack right back at her and seals her in glass, which leads to her first death.]]
** [[spoiler: [[TheDogBitesBack And MAYBE it wasn't such a good idea]] [[KickTheDog to emotionally abuse Hotaru.]] [[TooDumbToLive Did she honestly think]] [[EldritchAbomination Mistress 9]] ''[[WhatAnIdiot wouldn't know]]'' what she was doing to her [[DemonicPossession host body]]?]]
* HumanoidAbomination: Possibly in the anime, definitely in the manga and ''Crystal'', where she was the first successful human vessel that the Daimons created.
* KickTheDog: She kills Hotaru's fish and snarks at her when she writes a letter to a former IllBoy that she idolizes. Although the situation regarding Hotaru's fish is left ambiguous as to whether it was Kaolinite who did it or Hotaru during a moment when Mistress 9 was in control. The latter seems more likely, since the memory is shown during a montage of Hotaru recollecting the times when she's blamed for things she can't recall doing.
* KnightOfCerebus: Her introduction consisted of her Daimon stealing [[spoiler: Rei]]'s heart crystal and destroying [[spoiler: Usagi's brooch, thus disabling her from transforming into Sailor Moon.]] In fact, later on, she manages to steal the Pure Hearts of [[spoiler: ''all of the Inner Guardians, including Usagi's'' (with the exception of Venus, whose Pure Heart was later removed by Eudial.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: She's in love with Professor Tomoe in the 90s anime. Hinted in the manga as well.
* NoRespectGuy: In both the manga and the 90s anime, though ironically it's reversed. In the manga she is the leader of the Witches 5 and they all respect her, but Professor Tomoe is very condescending and passive-aggressive towards her. In the anime, Professor Tomoe treats her very well, while the Witches 5, who answer to Tomoe, seem to resent her and treat her with open disdain, ''especially'' Viluy and Cyprine. And in both continuities, she's on the receiving end of this from Mistress 9.
* OneWingedAngel: In the manga and ''Crystal'', she transforms into a Daimon.
* OnlyMostlyDead: Until [[spoiler: she is revived by Tomoe]].
* PrehensileHair: Before [[spoiler: her first death]], Kaolinite used her hair to attack quite frequently in the 90s anime.
* RetiredBadass: After [[spoiler: Professor Tomoe revives her]], she seems to have lost her powers and continues to work exclusively as his assistant. [[spoiler: It's later revealed she really hasn't lost her powers, ''at all''.]]
* SacredHospitality: When Usagi and Chibi-Usa come to visit Hotaru, she cannot attack them.
* SchrodingersCast: 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.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Kaori, Kaorinite, Kaori Nite, Kaori, Kaoli Night, or Kaori Night?
* TheStarscream: In the manga and ''Crystal'', she wants to replace Mistress 9 as Pharaoh 90s "partner", something that Mistress 9 is aware of and finds amusing. Also implied in the 90s anime, as this is likely the reason why she was so abusive towards Hotaru, although in this case it's mostly so that she can have Professor Tomoe's undivided attention.
* StraightMan: The early episodes have her play this to Tomoe's wackiness.
* ThemeNaming: Yep. The mineral kaolinite.
* TooDumbToLive: Seriously, ''how'' could she believe [[spoiler: Mistress 9 wasn't going to be pissed at her for constantly mistreating her host body the way she did]] in the 90s anime?
* UnholyMatrimony: To a degree, with Tomoe. More blatant in the anime, where it's specifically mentioned that [[spoiler: he somehow resurrected her after the Guardians killed her, and then there's a scene where she massages his shoulders as Tomoe confides his upcoming plans to her.]]
* WickedStepmother: More or less is this to Hotaru in the anime; she is actually nice to her in the manga, but Hotaru still doesn't like her.
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler: In the 90s anime we're never told how she comes back to life.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Is given this in the anime, courtesy of [[spoiler:the recently-awakened Mistress 9. Might have been a revenge for her abuse of her host, Hotaru.]]

Underlings of the Death Busters, tasked with collecting human souls in the manga or pure hearts in the anime adaptation. In the manga they are perfect Daimons who serve Kaolinite, but in the anime are implied to be human and under Professor Tomoe's payroll.

* AdaptationalBadass: All five of them in ''Crystal''. Not only do their individual fights get expanded upon, but after being revived, not only do they manage to capture all four Inner Guardians like in the manga, but they also got to capture Sailor Moon for a little bit before getting defeated for good.
* AdaptationalVillainy: In the 90s anime they were incredibly selfish individualists, who frequently backstabbed each other in order to gain Professor Tomoe's favor. Even when they weren't vying to suck up to Tomoe, they were not above betraying each other for petty gains.
* {{Ascended Extra}}s: 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.
* BackFromTheDead: All of them are killed off individually in the manga, but then resurrected by Kaolinite to fight the Sailor Guardians all at once.
* DesignerBabies: In the manga and ''Crystal'', they were the "beautiful, super life-forms" created by Professor Tomoe.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: The last three of the Witches 5 in the anime (Tellu, Viluy, and Cyprine) all get unceremoniously killed off within one episode after a brief confrontation with the Sailor Guardans.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* FlatCharacter: In the manga. While some of them do show a few personality traits, they still receive MonsterOfTheWeek treatment.
* EnemyCivilWar: In the anime the girls backstab [[spoiler: and kill]] each other without any second thoughts.
* EvilRedheads: At least three of the girls had red or orange hair: Eudial, Mimete, and Ptilol, though Mimete is more strawberry blond.
* EvilTeacher: In the manga, although students, each was at the head of a class at Infinity Academy and was thus allowed to teach said class.
* GeekyTurnOn: Oh, those labcoats and glasses!
* GreenEyedMonster: In the anime, this seems to be the main reason for their constant backstabbing.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the anime, damn near al of them end up getting killed this way.
* HumanoidAbomination: In the manga, where they are really Daimons. In the anime, they're likely just former {{Muggles}} who learned FunctionalMagic and [[MagicFromTechnology Science]].
* {{Meganekko}}: In the anime, all of them wear glasses as part of their lab attire.
* NoHonorAmongThieves: 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.
* NonIndicativeName: Even after the sixth witch, Ptilol, is revealed, they're still called the Witches 5. This is because Ptilol is an extension of Cyprine and they count as one witch.
* PsychoRangers: To the Guardians in the manga. Eudial to Mars, Mimete to Venus, Viluy to Mercury, Tellu to Jupiter, and Cyprine could count as one to Sailor Moon.
* RunningGag:
** The sign on the door of their office reading "Witches 5". After [[spoiler: 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 [[spoiler: Mimette is defeated]], a piece of paper taped ''over the first'' corrects it to read "Witches 3" and so on.
* SchrodingersCast: 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.
* SelfDisposingVillain: In the anime, [[spoiler: all of them. Sure, the Guardians helped here and there, but these girls were so busy [[EnemyCivilWar killing]] ''[[EnemyCivilWar each other]]'' and/or [[TooDumbToLive being cocky idiots]] that the Guardians could've probably just twiddled their thumbs and waited.]]
* SmugSnake: Each one of them seem to think themselves more skilled than they actually turn out to be, [[SelfDisposingVillain especially in the anime]].
%%* TechnoWizard
* ThemeNaming: Eudialite, mimetite, tellurite, viluite, cyprine and ptilolite are indeed minerals as well.
* VillainsOutShopping: In one episode of the 90s anime, they play Twister. Prof. Tomoe also joins them.

->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Hitomi Tsumura, Saya Chinen
* AdaptationalBadass: Eudial was one of the weakest of the Witches 5 in the manga, but seems to be their leader in the animes. In the S anime, Mimete addressed her as senpai. In ''Crystal'', she's usually the one to stand in the center and lead whenever the Witches 5 are together.
* AdaptationalComicRelief: In the 90s anime. On the other hand, she is more prone to comedic moments and being the ButtMonkey of many situations.
* BadassNormal: In the 90s anime, she is the first villain to not use any magic and doesn't even appear to have any powers, which is likely the reason why she initially requires Daimons as bodyguards. But once she starts using her various handmade weapons, she is not only able to outsmart each Sailor Guardian in a fight, but turns out to be ''stronger'' than Sailor Moon before she transforms into Super Sailor Moon.
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: After Usagi transforms into Super Sailor Moon, Eudial attempts to fry her, but Super Sailor Moon deflects her attack and sends her crashing through a stained glass window.
* ChristmasCake: The rest of the Witches 5 call her an old lady in the anime, likely due to this trope.
* CarFu: Before the Fire Buster, this was basically her main form of attack in the anime.
* CombatPragmatist: In the anime, Eudial discarded magic or complicated plans and used guns that could extract a Pure Heart 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''!
* DestinationDefenestration: After Super Sailor Moon deflects her attack. Astonishingly, she survives... [[spoiler: but only for a few minutes.]]
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Due to Mimette's antics, Eudial and her car go straight off a cliff, landing into the ocean below.]]
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Her extremely reckless driving becomes a running gag in the 90s anime.
%%* FieryRedhead
* GadgeteerGenius: In the original anime, unlike near every other villain in the show who relied on magical powers to carry out their plans, Eudial instead used mainly her own inventions. Surprisingly, this makes her more successful than a lot of the vilains in the show.
* HyperCompetentSidekick: Not only does she create a more efficient way to extract Pure Hearts, but she actually succeeds at finding two of the talismans using only a computer. She then sets up an elaborate trap for Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, [[spoiler: who turned out to be the holders of the two talismans]], and [[spoiler: practically ''kills'' Neptune by extracting her talisman while critically wounded and would have done the same to Uranus had Usagi not intervened]]. But she then shows up again and snatches both talismans, stops the Inner Guardians from following her, and would have killed Sailor Moon and won the battle had Sailor Pluto not appeared at the right moment. Her actions also lead to Pluto revealing the third and final talisman and thus causing the Holy Grail to appear, which she comes extremely close to obtaining. Add all of this, and Eudial came closer to furthering the goals of her organization than any other villain in the show.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Her Fire Buster is basically a vacuum cleaner that can shoot fire, and the upgraded version has a ''blender'' attached to it.
* LargeHam: But ''only'' when confronting the Sailor Guardians. During her conversations with Professor Tomoe, she is usually calm and calculating.
* MadeOfIron: Not only does she survive having her flamethrower attack deflected back at her, but immediately after she's ejected out of the highest floor of the building through a ''window'' and only has a few scratches and bruises to show for it.
* MagicBrakes: [[spoiler: Which leads to her death.]]
* NoNonsenseNemesis: That's why she was the most successful of the Witches 5.
* NoRespectGuy: Gets no respect from the other Witches 5 in the 90s anime, despite being their superior and the one who taught them their ways.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Doesn't appear to be that much of a threat during her first few appearances, but once she [[LetsGetDangerous discovers who is holding two of the talismans...]]
* OhCrap: Multiple times. When she found herself surrounded by Sailor Guardians (with the addition of an exasperated [[OhNoNotAgain "You too?"]] when Sailor Venus added herself to the list of supposed civilians who had just transformed), when she found out that Sailor Neptune is ImmuneToBullets, and when she discovered her car [[spoiler: was sabotaged.]]
* OneWingedAngel: Manga only. After Sailor Mars destroys her human form, she reveals her gorgon-like Daimon form before being destroyed by Sailor Moon. Curiously, this was adapted out of ''Crystal''.
* PlayingWithFire: This was a mere InformedAbility in the manga. In the anime, she used two weapons of her own design that could shoot fire. ''Crystal'' expands her fight with Mars and Jupiter and shows her attacking with fire magic.
* RapidFireTyping: In the anime she spends most of her time in front of a computer doing this when not out looking for Pure Hearts, and can even do so with one hand!
* RunningGag: In the anime, her car would always pop out from increasingly absurd places, ranging from the subway (first time) to ''the elephants cage at the zoo'' (the episode where she targeted Minako).
* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: In a rather memorable scene, her locker is vandalized by Mimete and filled with her ''much'' hated snails.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She hates snails. This eventually leads to her downfall [[spoiler: because Mimete not only tampers with her car, but puts some snails in the brakes to make her panic more]].

->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Shiori Honda, Aki Kudou, Ayaka Ida
* AdaptationalBadass: In ''Crystal'', she holds her own in battle a little better than she did in the manga, even creating her own Daimons instead of having having to beg Kaolinite for them.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Eudial outright describes her as such, stating that she acts cute and innocent on the outside to hide her true nature.
* CharmPerson: Her specialty magic according to the ''Materials Collection'', but while her attack ''is'' called Charm Buster, it doesn't really work that way in any adaptation.
* ButtMonkey: Not as much as Eudial, but still there.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Not only does she kill [[spoiler: Eudial]] to take her job, but she also tried to sabotage Tellu after finding out she was getting replaced.
* ClippedWingAngel: In her last stand against the Sailor Guardians in the 90s, Mimete uses one of Eudial's inventions to transport herself into a theater screen, amplifying her powers tenfold. Just as it looks like an epic battle is about to begin, [[spoiler: Tellu appears from the shadows and literally pulls the plug on Mimete before she even gets to attack.]]
* TheDitz
* EvilDiva: Was an IdolSinger in the manga and ''Crystal''. In the 90s anime, she is merely a wannabe.
* FakeCutie: This is truly prominent in ''Crystal''. She usually looks like [[https://65.media.tumblr.com/d99730f4eb2ed640349869ca9beea6de/tumblr_o68thwJ0op1ty9lpeo6_1280.png this]], then shifts to [[https://36.media.tumblr.com/c0ad337abb86ab55b99e965b2d197b02/tumblr_o68thwJ0op1ty9lpeo10_1280.png THIS]].
* FateWorseThanDeath: In the anime, [[spoiler: she is left trapped inside a machine]]. 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 Pure Hearts.
* GoKartingWithBowser: With Minako when they both compete in an Idol contest for an episode.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: In the above mentioned episode, she seriously considers leaving the Death Busters to pursue her dream of becoming an idol and even develops a brief friendship with Minako. Sadly this doesn't last, as she quickly goes back to her evil ways after losing the competition.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the anime, [[spoiler: she ends up trapped in the very machine she was about to use to lay the smackdown on the Sailor Guardians]].
* IdolSinger: In the manga.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Mimete [[spoiler:murdered Eudial]] because she was tired of her repeated failures. The catch is that Mimete herself wasn't really interested in her mission more than she was on meeting her idols or becoming a celebrity. She turned out to be '''''the''''' most useless member of the Witches 5.
** In one episode of the first anime, she calls herself "a good girl who has done nothing wrong". The camera immediately cuts to a [[spoiler: [[LampshadeHanging picture of Eudial.]]]]
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* IronicEcho[=/=]DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: The machine she ends up trapped in was built by Eudial, whom she killed.]]
* TheLoad: Is the weakest of the Witches 5 in both the manga and anime. In the manga, she has to beg Kaolinite for reinforcements once she realizes she is no match for the Sailor Guardians, and in the anime she was more interested in pursuing her celebrity crushes than actually getting any work done for the Death Busters.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Mimete actually screwed things up for the Death Busters pretty badly by [[spoiler: killing Eudial]]. Since Eudial had discovered the identities of all of the Sailor Guardians and knew that Sailor Moon had the Holy Grail, the Death Busters could have staged an all-out attack against her to obtain the grail instead of resorting to collecting Pure Hearts as an energy source for Mistress 9. But [[spoiler: with Eudial dead]] no one else learned this information, so the Death Busters ended up not making much progress during her tenure.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: As incompetent as Mimete was, there were a few rare instances that showed she could be truly dangerous when provoked.
* PsychopathicManChild: With emphasis on the "child".
* StalkerWithACrush: How she sometimes acts with her targets in the first anime. This is especially prominent during her debut, where she planned to deliver a box of homemade cakes to her movie star target and later acts as though they're in a relationship. Her incredibly hammy internal dialog reads "I am destined to be the one to take your pure heart, so please, give up on this romance."
* StockShoujoBullyingTactics: Fills Eudial's locker with snails and hides a thumbtack in her slippers.
* VillainsOutShopping: Moreso than the others, due to her being more interested in pursuing her own hobbies than actually furthering the goals of her organization.
* WomanScorned: One actor she targeted in the 90s anime caught her ire because his soap opera character broke up with someone on the show. Mimete got so angry she threw the TV at the wall and decided to steal his heart as revenge for "breaking hers."

* AdaptationalBadass: In ''Crystal'' she is more powerful, proving nearly invincible until [[spoiler: Sailor Pluto shows up.]]
* AdaptationDyeJob: The pearl details in her manga outfit are removed entirely in the '90s anime (likely to simplify animation). In ''Crystal'', they're redesigned to look more like leaves growing on a vine.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She was seemingly friends with Mimete as the two are seen gossiping with each other and even play Twister on their time off, but doesn't think twice about subjecting Mimete to [[spoiler: a FateWorseThanDeath]] when she finds out she betrayed her.
* ClippedWingAngel: In the anime, right after she transforms one of her Telluns into a Hyper Tellun and is about to leave the Sailor Guardians to deal with it, [[spoiler: she gets caught in a freak accident and is killed alongside the plant.]] Her Daimon form in the manga doesn't last long either, [[spoiler: getting quickly vaporized by Sailor Pluto]].
* CombatTentacles: She can attack by extending wines from her wrists.
* EnergyAbsorption: In ''Crystal'', she asborbs Sailor Moon's and Chibi Moon's attacks, allowing her to transform into a Daimon.
* EvilCounterpart: Since she uses flowers for evil, she ends up being this to Tuxedo Mask in the anime. [[spoiler: He's even the one who technically defeats her, in a rare CrowningMomentOfAwesome for him]]. In the manga, she is this to Sailor Jupiter.
* GreenThumb: She breeds parasitic flowers called "Telluns" and uses them to extract Pure Hearts (or Hostes, in the manga) from her victims, and can also attack by growing tendrils from her wrists.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the anime, [[spoiler: she ends up being killed by her own monster plant.]]
* IronicEcho: The Cloverway dub included this when she gets her job back. [[spoiler: Telulu figures out Mimet is impersonating Dr. Tomoe when "he" signs off with "Ta-ta." As Telulu pulls the plug on Mimet, she says "Ta-ta, Mimet" as a way to rub Mimet's slip in her face.]]
* OneWingedAngel: In ''Crystal'', she transforms into a plant monster just like in the manga.
* PetalPower: In ''Crystal'', she can create a shield of flower petals which she uses to absorb attacks.
* PlantMooks: Employs these to carry out her EvilPlan. Her Daimon form in the manga also appears to have been this.
* ShockAndAwe: Like her counterpart Sailor Jupiter, she uses both plant and electric-based attacks.

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: After her death, Ami pities her for only believing in machines rather than in human emotions.]]
* AnIcePerson: The ''Materials Collection'' says she could control ice, but this is never shown in the manga or both anime. Given that said collection contained a lot of prototype material that never made it into the final product, this is likely not canon.
* CoolHat: A mosaic hat.
* EmotionlessGirl: Firmly believes that emotions are a hindrance to the pursuit of science.
%%* EvilGenius
* EvilTeacher: Although a student at Infinity Academy, she is allowed to teach due to her high grades. Ami quickly points out that grades do not necessarly make a good teacher, for a teacher must also be empathetic of students who fare less well academically.
%%* ForScience
* GadgeteerGenius: Like the anime version of Eudial, she preferred to rely on technology rather than magic.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: In the manga, [[spoiler: Sailor Uranus's attack actually ''cuts her in half''. This isn't shown in ''Crystal'', for obvious reasons.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the anime. Just like Tellu, [[spoiler: her own creation kills her after Sailor Moon's attack causes it to malfunction.]]
* {{Nanomachines}}: Uses nanobots to extract Pure Hearts (or Hostes, in the manga) through computer systems as well as in combat. She controls them with the bracelet on her wrist.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: [[spoiler: After being dissolved by her nanobots in the anime.]]
* TheRival: To Ami. Notably, she is the only member of the Witches 5 whose rivalry with her Sailor counterpart is kept in all adaptations, thanks to her plotline in the anime being more or less same as in the manga.
* SmugSnake: Easily the most arrogant of the Witches 5.

!!Cyprine and Ptilol
->'''Cyprine voiced by''': Creator/YurikoFuchizaki (first anime), Umeka Shouji (''Crystal'') (JP), Susan Aceron (Cloverway), Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (under Johanna Luis) (Viz) (EN) Monica Villaseñor ([=LatAm=])

->'''Ptilol voiced by''': Rumi Kasahara (JP), Susan Aceron (Cloverway), Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (under Johanna Luis) (Viz) (EN), Monica Villaseñor ([=LatAm=])
* AnIcePerson: In the manga and ''Crystal'', Cyprine creates a hailstorm that causes everyone in town to become violent and destructive.
* CompellingVoice: In the original anime, Cyprine can seemingly hypnotize the students of Infinity Academy with her voice, and forces them all to sacrifice their Pure Hearts.
* CreepyTwins: Ptilol is actually an extension of Cyprine's powers, and only comes out during battle.
* DividedWeFall: They try to invoke this between the Inner and Outer Guardians. See EmotionControl below.
* EmotionControl: Cyprine's magic can exacerbate the dark and negative emotions in people. She uses this to her advantage by turning the animosity between the Inner and Outer Guardians into violent hatred, making them fight one another.
* EnergyAbsorption: In the anime, their main shtick was that they could absorb the attacks of the Inner Guardians to strengthen their own.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: The Inner Guardians exploit their ability to absorb attacks and then trick them into blasting each other.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: While the other Witches 5 had some affable qualities, especially Eudial and Mimete, Cyprine is much more serious and, along with Ptilol, proves nearly unstoppable to the Sailor Guardians. Since their episode is also the episode in which [[spoiler: Mistress 9 awakens]], they help to set up the tone for the rest of the season finale.
* OneHitKill: In the anime, they mention being able to do this. [[spoiler:They weren't lying, which led to their own demise.]]
* PhlebotinumOverload: [[spoiler: Part of how they meet their demise in the 90s anime.]]
* ThePowerOfHate: What solidifies Cyprine as Sailor's Moon counterpart in the Witches 5 is that, while Sailor Moon is empowered by her love and trust in her friends, Cyprine exploits the feelings of resentment and hatred in a person's heart and uses it to overwhelm their enemies.
* SuperPowerLottery: In the anime, their list of powers includes and isn't limited to: levitation, teleportation, energy projection, energy absorption, mind control, and trapping others in ''another dimension''.
* SmugSnake: Not as much as Viluy, but Cyprine does have good reason to consider herself the most powerful of the Witches 5.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: In the original anime, Cyprine gets the least development of the Witches 5.


* AffablyEvil: Some of the ones that show up are this, which is very unique compared to the other types of the minions the others use.
* BodyHorror: In the manga, see LighterAndSofter bellow.
* BlobMonster: What Daimons look like without an object or person to possess. A very nightmarish example in the manga.
* CatsAreMean: Nekonerru, who is part cat and part jigsaw puzzle.
* CheatersNeverProsper: U-Ikasaman challenges the Guardians to rigged games in exchange for their freedom. Thankfully the Guardians were smart enough to clarify that she only needs to be beaten ''once'', even if she doesn't hold up to that.
* CreatingLifeIsBad: Apparently, alien technology can create an army of monsters that make the [[LegionsOfHell Youma]] and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Droids]] look feeble.
* DeadpanSnarker: U-Tahime's response to Mimete's claim that the audience they're attacking is wowed by her performance is that they're actually in pain.
* DemonicPossession: They mostly possess humans and animals in the manga. This is also addressed in the anime, but they usually possess inanimate objects during the main story line.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Daimon U-Tomodachi.
* KissOfDeath: Mimete's Daimons remove heart crystals this way. [[{{Squick}} Then swallow them]].
* KnightOfCerebus: Unlike the other Daimons, the unnamed Daimon and [[spoiler:Rangy]] are played ''dead seriously''.
* LighterAndSofter: Manga Daimons are the BodyHorror-riffic failed fusion of an extra-dimensional StarfishAlien with a life-form from our universe. They had CombatTentacles, VaginaDentata and BizarreAlienBiology. Except for the one that appeared during Uranus's flashback, all Anime Daimon are women instead, and while not useless they get increasingly goofy as the season went on.
* MixAndMatchCritter: U-Ikasaman looked like she was made up of various board and card games thrown together, a result of Mimete shoving whatever she could into the daimon oven.
* NotSoHarmless: The first two anime Daimon, Mikuji and Nekonerru. Both took out all the Guardians, and Mikuji was responsible for Usagi's transformation being undone and the reason she needed a power up. They were only defeated by A: Uranus and Neptune stepping in to stop Mikuji, and B: Usagi receiving her new transformation brooch and weapon for the third season.
* OneGenderRace: Female. [[spoiler: Strangely, the one possessing Prof. Tomoe seems male]], and the unnamed Daimon didn't seem to have a gender at all.
* PetTheDog: U-Ndokai briefly stops when she sees an ill Hotaru and advises her on where to go if she's not well... unfortunately for her, this is one of those moments where Hotaru is channeling Mistress 9 and U-Ndokai gets blown away for her troubles.
* SafetyGearIsCowardly: Averted. The Anime Daimons are strangely safety-conscious and vocal about it. Daimon Steering actually asks if Haruka and Michiru have good insurance after they drop Haruka's motorcycle on her, and Cenicienta carries a warranty for a new arm taped to her skirt.
* SomethingAboutARose: U-Baulla is a yellow rose-based Daimon. Tuxedo Mask actually accuses her of stealing his gimmick.
* TechnicalPacifist: U-Ikasaman doesn't fight the Guardians because she claims she abhors violence despite being a villain. That doesn't stop her from making them play rigged games that tend to ''explode'' when the Guardians lose.
* TrueFinalBoss: Well, Pharaoh 90 has been defeated and the world is saved. [[spoiler: Wait... what's that Daimon seed doing with the Daimon-making oven?]]

!'''Dead Moon Circus'''

[[folder:In General]]
* AdaptationalHeroism: As stated previously, quite a few of the villains were either softened or reformed in the first anime. The Dead Moon Circus, however, takes this trope to extremes: Literally the only villain aside form the Lemures who ''doesn't'' make a HeelFaceTurn by the end of the show is Zirconia. And since she and Queen Nehellenia are one and the same, technically she did!
%%* BrightIsNotGood: Hoo boy.
* CircusOfFear: And how. It's there gimmick to be a creepy circus
* CrapsaccharineWorld: 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!!
* LackOfEmpathy: Amongst all the major characters. It comes from emphasizing a state of perpetual youth.
* MadnessMantra: "Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever. Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever. Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever. [[BrokenRecord Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever.]] [[NightmareFuel Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever...]]"
** The first anime, in the original Japanese, has "Dream, dream, don't doubt it. A dream of dreams that dreaming children have." The English dub has "Don't dream that you're all grown up! Big dreams are best for kids!"
* ObviouslyEvil: 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 [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the manga, when Minako gets a flyer for talent auditions from the "Dead Moon Talent Agency" and the Guardians immediately figure out it's a trap.
* StrawNihilist: They like to wax poetic about the foolishness of humanity and the worthlessness of dreams. Helios calls them "the remnants of dreams discarded by people who forgot what it means to dream."

[[folder:Queen Nehellenia]]
!!'''Queen Nehellenia'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/YoshikoSakakibara as an adult and Creator/WakanaYamazaki as a child (JP), Lisa Dalbello (Cloverway) (EN), Sylvia Garcel ([=LatAm=]), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Kaori Ishikawa
* AdaptationalHeroism: Queen Nehellenia was still evil in the anime, but only because she was misled, and she was eventually redeemed and granted a second chance at life in ''Stars''. In the manga, she was evil incarnate (a spawn of Chaos), responsible for the death of the Moon Kingdom ''and'' the current calamity, and was destroyed by Usagi and Mamoru.
* AllegoricalCharacter: Super S makes her the embodiment of [[StrawNihilist childish nihilism]], though her additional backstory in Stars muddles this a bit.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the fourth season.
* ClippedWingAngel: Happens in the manga when the newly powered-up Eternal Sailor Moon attacks her. [[spoiler: This causes her to wither into the [[HumanoidAbomination insect-like]] being she really is (it is clearly Zirconia in Nehellenia's dress wearing a wig over her hat).]]
* DemotedToExtra: Downplayed. She still remained a credible threat, but in ''Sailor Stars'' she goes from BigBad to ArcVillain.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Wants to destroy Usagi's life, kidnap her friends and lover, and erase Usagi's child out of existence just because Usagi's life is better than her's, even though everything wrong with Nehellenia's existence is her own fault and possibly that of her mirror's corruptive influence.
-->'''Nehellenia''': I will guide everything you love to destruction.
* DontYouDarePityMe and AngerBornOfWorry: In the anime, every time someone looks at her in pity, [[BerserkButton it sends her into a screaming fit of insanity.]]
--> '''Nehellenia''': ''Those eyes again... '''Don't look at me with such eyes'''! You should hate me, loathe me, feel rage against me!''
%%* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Even as she seeks to punish Sailor Moon by taking away her loved ones, the strength of [[ThePowerOfLove their]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship bonds]] is completely beyond her. Best put after Sailor Moon jumps after Chibi-Moon.
-->'''Nehellenia''': Little fool. You throw away your hopes and dreams and for what? All for a wee little girl?
* EvilCounterpart: She and her kingdom of the Dead Moon are the shadow selves of Queen Serenity and the Silver Millennium. The fan theory that she is Queen Serenity's sister is, however, explicitly ''not'' true, in both the anime and the manga.
* EvilLaugh: In both the original Japanese version and the English dub.
* {{Expy}}: WordOfGod compares the Manga Nehellenia to the evil fairies/witches of old fairy tales who curse the main protagonist. One example would be Maleficent from ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''. With her magic mirror and vanity, the comparison to the Evil Queen from ''Literature/SnowWhite'' is also obvious. Her arc in the ''Stars'' season of the anime is based on ''Literature/TheSnowQueen''.
%%* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: [[spoiler: In the anime, after the MagicMirror shows her that she won't retain her beauty and everyone will abandon her.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: She wants to do everything she can to make Sailor Moon hurt because she's ''deeply'' envious of the happiness Usagi has with her friends.
%%* HellishPupils
* HumanoidAbomination: What she really is in the manga.
* JapanesePronouns: In the original she uses ''warawa'', which is associated with [[TheOjou nobility women]] with sophisticated and archaic speech patterns. Dubs usually translated it into her using the most formal and old-fashioned speech patterns of the language in question.
* KnightOfCerebus: In the anime, while the season she's in is mostly comedic, she's the only villain that is played completely seriously with no comedic quirks, and the fifth season is initially more serious because of her involvement.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: She's regal as Queen of the Dead Moon, and can cast energy waves of darkness.
* LonelyRichKid: The ''Stars'' anime shows her as one of these, before she became a VainSorceress.
* MagicMirror: One of the uber examples.
* MultipleChoicePast: Was she corrupted by her mirror? Or were her actions her own? Who sealed her away, Queen or Princess Serenity? Chances are we'll never know.
* OdangoHair: One of the only villains to have this.
* OmnicidalManiac:
** The anime version is fairly close, as her dream-stealing turns people into [[EmptyShell living dead]], and she intends to implement it everywhere.
** Is also this in the manga given her power corrupting the Earth would likely kill everything on it.
* PsychopathicManChild: All her motivations (fear of aging, revenge on Helios for not being able to have him, murderous jealousy of Sailor Moon for having what she doesn't have) stem from her stunted maturity.
-->"[[MadnessMantra Never ever forget to remember, a child's dream is a dream forever.]] I'll never become an adult!" (''[[LaughingMad laughs]] as she's sealed away into her prison'')
* RedemptionEarnsLife: [[spoiler: In the 90s anime, Sailor Moon returns her to her childhood when Nehellenia gives up and asks her if she can "Do it over again", effectively giving her another chance in life and making her a prospect High Queen that will likely reign her planet wisely.]]
* SchrodingersCast: Perhaps the biggest case of it in the series. Her backstory and nature is completely different in the anime than it was in the manga, where she's explicitly tied with the Moon Kingdom, the original BigBad (her curse on the Moon Kingdom resulted in Metalia destroying it later) ''and'' the series' GreaterScopeVillain.
* SealedEvilInACan: The "can" in this case being a MagicMirror.
* SelfServingMemory: [[spoiler:Nehellenia's past has been explored four times in the anime, and each time was from her memories. The first time showed her looking more like Queen Serenity, saying that Serenity sealed her away in the darkness for trying to steal the Golden Crystal and take over the moon. The second time showed Nehellenia before her mirror showed a future where she was old and alone in a kingdom of dust and cobwebs, leading into her planet's genocide to keep her young. The third and fourth times are where the contradictions come in, as Sailor Moon's pity makes her remember "the last time" Usagi looked at her like that, and we're then treated to a flash of Princess Serenity with wings and the Golden Crystal. The fourth time is when Nehellenia remembers herself as a young girl when her mirror first started to corrupt her. Due to Nehellenia's rants about how the White Moon Princess locked her in darkness, the contradictions between whether it was Queen or Princess Serenity who sealed her away, her Serenity-like gown, it's hard to tell whether or not Nehellenia was corrupted by her mirror. Chances are she's so old she probably doesn't truly remember and is projecting her feelings now into her memories to convince herself she is the injured party, when all this time she's lashing out at Sailor Moon because she's jealous of everything she has and wants to destroy her. The moon cats barely even remember Nehellenia and only heard of her in passing back during the Silver Millennium, so it seems Nehellenia's power grab may have been a good while before Queen Serenity had her daughter.]]
** [[spoiler: There's a more blatant moment of this in episode 172. Nehellenia begins screaming about how Sailor Moon sealed her away into the new moon, and we're suddenly given a scene of a terrified Nehellenia inside the mirror being sucked into the new moon. That doesn't sync up at all with episode 166, where she gladly went back into her mirror prison and laughed all the way.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the 90s anime.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Nehellenia? Neherenia? Nephrenia? Nephelina?
* SpoiledSweet: In the anime. Despite being a VainSorceress, she was this before she went mad and became evil. She was more naive and insecure than spoiled rotten, then her mind broke enough for the MagicMirror to influence her, and then it went FromBadToWorse.
%%* SupernaturalGoldEyes
* ThemeNaming: Nepheline is a kind of feldspar.
* VainSorceress: What caused her to become evil in the first place in the anime. [[spoiler: Borderline deconstructed in that her obsession with staying beautiful has actively ruined her life, and seems to be the keystone to her self-worth. In the end of the fourth season, she explicitly admits she'd prefer [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere eternal isolation]] if it means she'll never be ugly.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler: What Anime Nehellenia is revealed to be at the end of the [=SuperS=] season. Under her archetypal wicked queen exterior, there's an extremely miserable and angry old woman who is desperately clinging to a dying dream of staying beautiful so she'll be loved and admired, and lashing out in her pain and bitterness at those whose happiness she is jealous of and wants for herself. In ''Stars'', it reveals she was a LonelyRichKid who learned to love herself and her own beauty more than anything else due to the MagicMirror, which is why she cannot stand the thought of losing her youthful beauty.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: In episode 166, she throws an unconscious Chibi-Moon off the floating pedestal with her mirror just to make Sailor Moon suffer.
-->'''Nehellenia''': Now how do you feel, Miss Sad Eyes? You've lost what you love most, and you've lost your happy future. Now maybe you can understand how I feel.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/HisakoKyoda (JP), Rowan Tichenor (Cloverway) (EN), Guadalupe Noel ([=LatAm=]), António Semedo (PT)
->'''Portrayed in the musicals by''': Keiko Iseki

* BreathWeapon: 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, [[spoiler: since she locks the Guardians 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 [[BodyHorror gruesome]] imagery in the Sailor Moon saga.
* TheDragon: To Nehellenia, [[MindScrew despite them apparently being the same person.]]
* EldritchAbomination: By all means, she should not exist, yet does.
%%* EvilOldFolks
* LargeHam: 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.
* ShesAManInJapan: Reversed; Zirconia is a woman in Japan, but was bizarrely made male in the English dub, with a [[SoBadItsGood hilariously bad]] Yoda-esque voice. She is also a male in the Portuguese dub, with a deep voice similar to an old man.
* StarfishCharacter: 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. [[spoiler: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.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: Makes no secret of her exasperation with her minions.
* ThemeNaming: After gemstone zircon.

[[folder:The Amazon Trio]]
!!'''The Amazon Trio (Tiger's Eye, Hawk's Eye, Fish's Eye)'''
->'''Tiger's Eye voiced by''': Creator/RyotaroOkiayu (JP), Jason Barr (Cloverway) (EN), Yamil Atala ([=LatAm=]), António Semedo (PT). Portrayed in the musicals by Ryuuji Kasahara, Akihito Mimatsu.
->'''Hawk's Eye voiced by''': Creator/ToshioFurukawa (JP), Benji Plener (Cloverway) (EN), Benjamin Rivera ([=LatAm=]), Rogério Jacques (PT). Portrayed in the musicals by [[CrosscastRole Tsukiko Tamura, Hikari Ono]].
->'''Fish Eye voiced by''': Creator/AkiraIshida (JP), Deborah Drakeford (Cloverway) (EN), Vicky Burgoa ([=LatAm=]), Miguel Feijão (PT).Portrayed in the musicals by [[CrosscastRole Tae Kimura]].
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the 90s anime, instead of being one shot MonstersOfTheWeek, they have existential crises over their lack of [[AnatomyOfTheSoul dream mirrors]] and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman animal natures]] and befriend the heroes before reverting to animal shapes and being taken to a magical sanctuary.
* AdaptationalSexuality: Gay and nursing a sincere crush on Mamoru in TheNineties anime, Fish Eye originally attempted to seduce Ami as the manga's more disposable MonsterOfTheWeek.
* {{Anti Villain}}s: Anime only.
* {{Ascended Extra}}s: Again, anime only.
* BreathWeapon: Hawk's Eye.
* CampGay: Fish Eye in the anime.
* CampStraight: In the manga, where [[HoneyTrap he tries to seduce Ami to brainwash her.]] [[spoiler: It utterly fails]]
* CasanovaWannabe: Tiger's Eye tries to seduce his targets and often fails miserably, [[HandsomeLech despite his good looks]].
* CrosscastRole: Musical versions of Fish Eye and Hawk's Eye. The latter is played by Hikari Ono who also played Prince Dimande.
* DiedHappilyEverAfter: Anime....sort of.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Look at Fish Eye. Listen to Fish Eye. Would ''you'' believe Fish Eye is a guy?
* EasilyForgiven: In the 90s anime. Fish Eye receives separate character development, coming to truly understand what love and dreams really are thanks to Mamoru and Usagi. Hawk's Eye and Tiger's Eye... not so much. Their rebellion is less because of wanting to become good and more for telling Zirconia where to stick it as payback for trying to kill them.
* EvilRedheads: Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye. (Tiger's Eye sort of falls into this if you count orange as red hair.)
* HeelFaceTurn: In the anime only, they realize the error of their ways and join the good guys.
* HighHeelFaceTurn: Apparently extends to crossdressers too, as the very feminine Fish Eye is the first of the trio to reconsider the path of evil because he falls in love with Mamoru.
* HoneyTrap: 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 Fish Eye baits the target and lets them come to him. In the manga, Hawk's Eye tries a variant of this. Rather than trying to force himself on his target Guardians like Fish Eye and Tiger's Eye did, Hawk's Eye instead introduces himself in a civilian form to Makoto, befriends her, and tricks her into thinking he's sympathetic to her worries before attacking.
%%* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* KnifeNut: Fish Eye.
* LackOfEmpathy: In the 90s anime, none of them can understand the importance around why their targets value their dreams, and tend to view their victims as statistics rather than people. Fish Eye, however, starts to develop empathy on his own and realizes why these people value their dreams so much. Before his HeelFaceTurn, Fish Eye would've gladly destroyed a person's dream mirror if ordered to do so. [[spoiler: When Mister Magic Pierrot shatters Usagi's mirror, Fish Eye is ''horrified'' and understands completely how much Usagi has lost.]]
* LikesOlderWomen: Hawk's Eye preferred to attack older women in the anime. In fact, one of his victims was Ikuko-mama, Usagi's mother.
* LoveRedeems: In the anime, Fish Eye is the first of the trio to go straight (no pun intended), after falling in unrequited love with Mamoru and befriending Usagi.
* MindRape: ''Literally''. In order to find Pegasus, they stick their heads inside of restrained people's dream mirrors in ways that [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything remind you of a sexual assault.]]
* {{Punch Clock Villain}}s: 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.
* ShesAManInJapan: Fish Eye was often made female in the dubs, for much the same reasons as Zoisite. In particular, his eyes 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.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Anime... sort of.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: In most dubs, due to [[ShesAManInJapan Fish Eye's gender change.]]
* VillainousCrossdresser: Hawk's Eye, in the manga. Fish Eye, in the anime. Fish Eye, though, gets some CharacterDevelopment and becomes a WholesomeCrossdresser.
* VillainsOutShopping: They're always seen hanging out in a pub.
* VitriolicBestBuds: The three, in the anime, especially Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye.
* VoluntaryShapeShifting: In the Manga the trio are literally a tiger, hawk, and fish. The Amazon Quartet's magic let them take human forms.
* WhipItGood: Tiger's Eye uses a whip.
* WouldHurtAChild: Fish Eye actually targeted a young boy in one episode, but before that he ''tried seducing him''. He also abducted Chibi-Usa when he learned about her connection to Pegasus.

%%* AgeInappropriateDress
* AnimeHair: Especially Jun Jun's.
* BareYourMidriff: All of them except Palla Palla.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In the manga.
* {{Bokukko}}: Jun Jun.
* ClarkKenting: Moreso than usual, especially Palla Palla who refers to herself at all times by her own name, whether in "disguise" or not, which is significant, because the Guardians come to know her both in and out of disguise, but never connect the dots.
* CombinationAttack: Their only known attacks as [[spoiler: Sailor Guardians]] in the manga manifest as this: The four of them together creates Amazoness Jungle Arrow. When working with [[spoiler: their leader, Sailor Chibi Moon]] they use Pink Ladies' Freezing Kiss.
* CreepyChild:
** 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.
* FieryRedhead: Ves Ves
* FourGirlEnsemble: Jun Jun and Ves Ves share the mannish role, Palla Palla is the childlike one, Cere Cere is the glamorous girl but [[TeamMom tries to be mature too]].
* HeelFaceTurn: 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, [[spoiler: they had been BrainwashedAndCrazy, so Neo-Queen Serenity healed them and restored their Guardians powers.]]
* MagicalGirl: [[spoiler:All four are actually Sailor Guardians who are charged with protecting Sailor Chibi Moon. They're really Sailor Ceres, Sailor Pallas, Sailor Juno and Sailor Vesta, the Guardians of the first four asteroids to be discovered in the asteroid belt. But only in the manga.]]
* ManipulativeBitch: Cere Cere has a knack for being this.
* MasterOfIllusion: Cere Cere, fitting her manipulative tactics.
* PetTheDog: 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. Not only that, but she has a tendency to help her targets fulfill their dreams anyways. Believed to be reference to [[spoiler: the goddess Juno, for whom the asteroid is named.]]
* PinballProjectile: How they extract the dream mirrors.
* ThePsychoRangers: Each Amazon is a direct inversion of her Guardians 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.
* SealedGoodInACan: [[spoiler: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.]]
%%* SheFu: Jun Jun.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Subverted: Palla Palla is outspoken and childlike.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Their group name's proper spelling is heavily debated. Amazon (Referring to the warrior women), Amazoness (Referring to being women FROM the Amazon) or Amazones (A more correct plural of "Amazon") have all been used by fans.
%%* {{Stripperiffic}}: And how!
* TheSmartGuy: Palla Palla had the sense to attack groups instead of a single individual.
* TheStarscream: They actually rebelled against Zirconia in their first episode in the 90s anime, but were quickly put down.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Palla Palla talks like this.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Each role is shared by two girls. Jun Jun and Ves Ves are the tomboys, while Cere Cere and Palla Palla are the girly girls.
%%* TricksterArchetype: All of them.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Even more so than the three of them above. When they're not doing their thing, they bicker amongst themselves 99% of the time.
* WhipItGood: Ves Ves had a whip, as befitting her tamer work in the circus.
* YouSoundFamiliar: In the dub Jun Jun was voiced Mary Long, the voice of Naru and Cooan

[[folder:Xenotime & Zeolite]]
!!'''Xenotime & Zeolite'''
* AdaptedOut: They only appear in the manga.
%%* AxCrazy
* TheCorrupter: They briefly brainwashed Minako before Artemis snapped her out of it.
%%* CreepyTwins
* EvilCounterpart: They serve as Venus's spotlight enemy since the Amazon Trio only had three members that went up against Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter.
* KnifeNut: Ones that control knives telepathically.
%%* LackOfEmpathy
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Their scheme to entrap a Sailor Guardians 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 were the only mooks ballsy enough to take on all four of the Inner Guardians at once.
* ObviouslyEvil: One of them approaches Minako as a talent scout for "Dead Moon Idol Audition," but Minako can fully tell they're the enemy and goes along with it for the sake of exposing them.
* SlasherSmile: Both of them.

* TheDogWasTheMastermind: 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.
* EverythingsWorseWithBears: One of the most prominent background Lemures was a blue-skinned girl with a bear's head and giant, mismatched eyes bordering on UncannyValley.
* HarmlessVillain: 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.
* TheHeartless: [[spoiler:They're what happens to a person who's lost their dreams; in other words, [[KingdomHearts Nobodies]]. They're nightmare blobs in the manga, making them much closer to the Trope Namer in appearance and application.]]
* LighterAndSofter: In the manga, Lemures are globs of pure nightmares. In the anime, they're campy MonstersOfTheWeek... Except for the MonsterClown 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 comes ''this'' close to finishing everyone off.
* LuckyTranslation: They were called 'Remless' in English dubs and subtitles of the 90s anime, which actually made a really clever StealthPun. Most dreaming occurs in the R.E.M. (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep, and for the most part members of the Dead Moon Circus are unable to dream. They are R.E.M.-less.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Unlike some of the other Monsters in the anime, the Lemures being old servants turned into weird circus freaks, some of them end up not being very good at the whole "monster attacks sailor scouts" things.
* MonsterClown: In the manga the circus is loaded with more clown-themed individuals. In the '90s anime, the Guardians only fight one expressly clown-type monster, but [[HeroKiller he's not to be trifled with]], unlike the rest of the Lemures.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent / OurGhostsAreDifferent: Nehellenia explicitly calls them "living corpses".
* PlayboyBunny: Candy Doll [=PeroPero=] appears as one after shifting out of her ball form.
* ThemeNaming: 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."
* UndyingLoyalty: To Queen Nehellenia. And considering that she made every last one of them what they are... [[ExtremeDoormat that says a lot]].
* WasOnceAMan: All of them. Then they lost their dreams.....turned into monsters....and umm started a circus?
* YouKilledMyFather: The ball-themed Lemures turn out to be related. After Puko the balloon girl is killed, her cousin Gum Mario decides to "thank" Sailor Moon for what she did when they meet. However, Gum Mario's relative Elephanko doesn't care what happened to him or Puko.

!'''Shadow Galactica'''

[[folder:In General]]
%%* AliensAreBastards
%%* DarkMagicalGirl
* {{Fallen Hero}}ines: Many of Shadow Galactica's members in the manga are former Sailor Guardians that have turned evil. Those that aren't (the Sailor Anima Mates) killed the Sailor Guardians of their planets to gain power, though both manga and anime mention that they are being [[MindControl controlled]] by bracelets that Galaxia has put on them.
* HarmlessVillain: Due to the LighterAndSofter nature of the anime, all of them except for Galaxia.
* HeroKiller: Particularly in the manga. With the exception of maybe two occasions, every time one of them shows up, a Guardians either dies horribly or is kidnapped. Also the fact that the Animamates killed the Guardians of their home planets before we're even introduced to them.
* HumanAliens: Yes, they're from completely different planets. It's not like we've never seen that before.


The final villain of the ''Sailor Moon'' series, a dark being that is the source of all evil in the galaxy.

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: Its anime incarnation is literally the evil and malice of all sentient beings across the galaxy coagulated into semi-physical form.
* BigBad: The final one for ''Sailor Moon'' series and of the Shadow Galactica arc.
* TheChessmaster: In the manga, it orchestrates basically all of the bad stuff that happens over the course of the series, and [[spoiler: manipulates Sailor Galaxia into working towards its goals, as opposed to possessing her.]]
* TheCorrupter: In ''Sailor Stars'', it corrupts Sailor Galaxia after she sealed it.
* DarkMagicalGirl: It's stated in the manga that Chaos will one day emerge from the Galaxy Cauldron as Sailor Chaos and we're treated to a single panel image of her.
%%* EldritchAbomination
* FightingAShadow: In the manga, all of the previous {{Big Bad}}s were incarnated aspects of Chaos, while Chaos itself has been safely residing in the Galaxy Cauldron.
* FinalBoss: Chaos is the true final villain of the ''Sailor Moon'' series, one of the most powerful villains and the most dangerous one.
%%* GodOfEvil
* GreaterScopeVillain: Queen Metalia, Death Phantom, Pharaoh 90 and Queen Nehellenia were nothing more than embodiments of Chaos, carrying on its will to seek out and seize the Silver Moon Crystal in order to obtain the ultimate power necessary to achieve his true goal.
* TheManBehindTheMan: It's only hinted at in the anime, and outright stated in the manga that Chaos is the evil force behind all the villains of previous arcs, and is even manipulating the BigBad of the Shadow Galactica arc.
* OmnicidalManiac: It desires to bring [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt an end to the universe]] and recreate anew to fit its whims.
* SadisticChoice: As Chaos is too deeply entrenched in the Galaxy Cauldron, destroying Chaos permanently requires destroying the Galaxy Cauldron, which means no more new star-seeds being being, thus dooming the galaxy (perhaps even the whole ''universe'') to a slow extinction of all forms of life, as well as no more stars being born. [[spoiler:Sailor Moon [[TakesAThirdOption instead decides]] to forcibly drag Chaos deep enough into the Cauldron that its essence is diluted enough that [[SealedEvilInACan it enters a sort of hibernation/comatose state]], though it is only a temporary measure.]]
* UltimateEvil: [[spoiler: 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.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: It wouldn't be a true ''Sailor Moon'' BigBad without this trope.

!!'''Sailor Galaxia'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MitsukoHorie (JP), Nancy [=McKenzie=] ([=LatAm=]), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
%%, ??? (Viz)

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The [[spoiler:apparent]] leader of Shadow Galactica, and easily the most powerful villain in the franchise next to Chaos. In all incarnations she gives a brutal {{curbstomp}} asskicking, taking down the Guardians in single blows and the Starlights only last as long as they do because she toys around with them. Usagi doesn't even defeat her in a straight battle [[note]] Though she refuses to fight with her after knowing her backstory[[/note]] but only wins by psychological means through showing her kindness that results in her surrendering the battle. Even here, Sailor Moon needed the help of allies to accomplish this.
* {{BFS}}: In the anime, she has a giant sword. She doesn't use it that much, though.
* BerserkButton:
** In the anime, she hates it when people talk back to her. Case in point: When she tells the Outer Guardians that Queen Nehellenia gladly served her during the opening arc of the fifth season, Saturn rebukes Galaxia and says she only manipulated Nehellenia's hatred. Galaxia gets pissed. And when she accuses the Sailor Starlights of being cowardly traitors who abandoned their homeworld for survival, Sailor Star Fighter calls her a liar, and Galaxia fiercely says she's not wrong and attacks the Starlights with killing intent.
** A bigger one, though, is getting injured. With the power to back up the position of strongest Sailor Soldier, she believes herself to be completely untouchable, so when the Starlights finally manage to land a powerful blow that injures her, [[MinorInjuryOverreaction she completely flips out]] and decides she doesn't want their star seeds anymore; she just wants to plain murder them.
* BigBad: The main antagonist of the fifth arc.
* TheChessmaster: She released Queen Nehellenia just in order to force Sailor Saturn to grow up, and therefore being able to capture her fully grown Star Seed.
* DarkActionGirl: See "HeroKiller".
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: The anime version of Galaxia tried to [[SealedEvilInACan turn herself into a can for sealing Chaos]] and sent her own Star Seed (Chibi Chibi) away to not get her contaminated. [[OutGambitted Didn't quite work.]] However, being TheChessMaster she made preparations to give the new generation of Sailor Guardians a fighting chance against her.]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:She ends up as this to Chaos, since Chaos is more powerful than her and far more evil]].
* TheDragon: To Chaos. In the anime, this is only because she's possessed.
* EvilCounterpart: To Usagi, especially the manga.
* EvilIsPetty: In the manga, she once [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroyed a planet]] because a few people on it annoyed her.
* EvilRedhead: Has long, reddish orange hair. Not that we get to see it much.
* FaceHeelTurn: She started off good, but has turned to evil by the time she appears in the anime in person.
* FallenHero: Once a beloved Sailor Guardian who became bad thanks to Chaos's influence.
* ForTheEvulz:
** In the anime, 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 [[spoiler: Uranus and Neptune and her words after it is accepted]] imply that she cycled through [[BadBoss many, many sets of minions this way]]. Though not explicitly 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.
** In the manga, she's not above offing a failed underling as well.
* GalacticConqueror: She is very similar to ComicBook/{{Thanos}} in her goals of galactic domination.
* GreaterScopeVillain: She later reveals that it was her who released Queen Nehellenia from her seal.
* HairTriggerTemper: In the manga. In a flashback, she destroys a planet just because a few aliens on it annoy her.
* HeelFaceTurn: In both the manga and the 90s anime. [[spoiler: In the manga it happens when Usagi convinces her that what she really wanted was to be loved and showed her that she needed love, purity, and compassion to be a Sailor Solider instead of pure power, and in the anime it happens when Usagi convinces her that she still has good in her after expelling Chaos from her body.]]
* HeroKiller: From the beginning in the manga, and after she gets bored of watching her servants getting whipped by the Guardians in the anime, she kills nearly all of the Guardians herself. In fact the first thing we see her do in the manga is kill Mamoru right in front of Usagi.
* IJustWantToBeLoved: This is another reason for her actions in the manga, instead of doing it for pure power. (Though she doesn't realize it herself till the end, her whole start of darkness was her assuming what she was missing was more power. It wasn't.)
* KnightOfCerebus: Both versions. In the manga, she quickly causes [[FromBadToWorse everything to go to hell the whole arc]] [[KillEmAll 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 MoodWhiplash whenever she appears.
* LadyOfWar: It helps that her "Sailor fuku" makes her look like she's wearing armor.
* NoNameGiven: Her real name is never stated in either the manga or the anime.
* OmnicidalManiac: She wiped out all life on multiple planets in both anime and manga.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: In the anime, Chaos's manifestation is basically powered-up Galaxia. With actual demonic wings and a black uniform.]]
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Sailor Galaxia has enough power to casually destroy planets.
* RapunzelHair: Long, pretty [[EvilRedhead orange and red]] hair.
* RedemptionEarnsLife: In the anime, [[spoiler:she survives after Sailor Moon redeems her.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: In the manga, [[spoiler:it's the ''act'' of redeeming herself that kills her, as the bracelet sustaining her starseed shatters as a result of her HeelFaceTurn. However, it's implied that she's reborn along with all the other dead Guardians in the end.]]
* StrawNihilist: 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.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: 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.
* WorldsStrongestMan: In the 90s anime, Galaxia was, as befits her name, the strongest Sailor Guardian in the entire Galaxy before her FaceHeelTurn and arguably kept the title to the end, as far as sheer power is concerned.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Galaxia won't hesitate to kill anyone should they fail her.

[[folder:Sailor Animamates]]
!!'''Sailor Animamates'''
* AnimalMotif: Except Siren, they're all based off animals.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In the manga they're not really Sailor Guardians. They murdered the Guardians of their home planets and were given powers by Galaxia. In the anime on the other hand it's confirmed by Princess Kakyuu regarding Sailor Tin Nyanko, and by extension all of the other Animamates, that they are true Sailor Guardians who were brainwashed by Sailor Galaxia using the bracelets.
* AscendedExtra / AdaptedOut: Just like most [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Quirky Miniboss Squads]] of the anime, in the manga they were killed off extremely quickly, some within the very scene they appeared in. In the anime the first four members appear in multiple episodes. Heavy Metal Papillion on the other hand has her role completely cut.
* EvilCounterpart: In the anime, Aluminum Siren and Lead Crow are basically Usagi and Rei, but working for the bad guys. This is used to [[spoiler: explore how Rei would act if Usagi died, and Rei's death ends up resembling Siren's closely.]]
* TheQuisling: 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 Guardians 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.
* ThemeNaming: Sailor + Metal + Animal.
%%* HeroKiller: In the manga, oh so much.


!!'''Sailor Iron Mouse aka Nezu Chuukou'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/ErikoHara (JP), Gabriela Willert ([=LatAm=]), Olga Lima (PT)
From the planet Chuu.
* ButtMonkey: 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.
* GenreSavvy: She refuses to play along with the hero/villain dynamic and repeatedly walks out whenever the Sailor Guardians 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 Guardians just finish up regardless of her protests.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* InformedWrongness: Whenever she discards her disguise, people invariably react as if she's some sort of terrifying monster, rather than, you know, a tiny woman in a fluffy mouse costume.
* {{Odango}}: That look a lot like mouse ears.
* PrettyInMink: Her gloves and shoulders are trimmed with white fur, in addition to her white fur earmuffs.
* RunningGag: She carries an old-fashioned black phone with her to keep in contact with Galaxia, and whenever it starts ringing, anyone nearby think it's ''their'' phone ringing as they check their bags.
* SmugSnake: In the anime. Sometimes played for comedy, though. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Even in the episode where she dies.]]
* VileVillainLaughableLackey: Sailor Iron Mouse wasn't a very serious villain, but when she failed, she was (rightly) terrified of [[YouHaveFailedMe how her boss would react]].
* WomanInWhite: Her costume is predominantly white with some black.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Gets killed by Galaxia in the 90s anime. In the manga, she gets killed in her first appearance.

!!'''Sailor Aluminum Siren aka Reiko Aya'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KikukoInoue (JP), Maru Guerrero ([=LatAm=]), Olga Lima (PT)
Aluminum Siren comes from the planet Mermaid. In the manga she only appears in one scene during Act 52 where she's quickly killed off but the anime expanded her role.
%%* AbsoluteCleavage
* AdaptationalComicRelief: The anime turns her into a ditzy CloudCuckooLander, contrasting the deadly monster she was in the Manga.
* AdaptationalWimp: In the anime, Siren relies predominantly on her bracelets, and has no real fighting prowess. In the manga her Galactica Tsunami attack, grants her PrehensileHair which she uses to kill [[spoiler: Mercury and Jupiter]], in the anime the attack is just her throwing drink items.
* AffablyEvil: 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.
%%* AntiVillain: In the anime.
* BigEater: 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.
* BunnyEarsLawyer:
** Though she's the least ''evil'' villain on the team outside of battle, once she's in a fight she's ''absolutely'' vicious. LampShaded, not so much in the anime.
** Also, [[spoiler: she found out Sailor Moon's identity]]. Had she not died before she could tell anyone, the final season would have been much shorter. [[spoiler: Although she did write it down in her diary, which Lead Crow later finds.]]
%%* ButtMonkey
%%* CloudCuckooLander
* DarkActionGirl: In the manga. [[spoiler: She wasted no time in killing Mercury and Jupiter.]]
%%* TheDitz
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: Specifically, Lead Crow's]].
* EvilCounterpart: 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.
** Because of her association with water though she could also be considered one to Sailor Mercury. Ironically she is also [[spoiler: responsible for her death, as well as Jupiter's]] in the manga.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: [[spoiler: Which makes her death by Galaxia much worse.]]
* MoralityPet: To Lead Crow in the anime. [[spoiler: And she remains this even after she dies. Lead Crow's last words just before she's engulfed by a black hole are "I'm sorry, Siren."]]
* NiceGirl: A rare villainous example.
* PassiveAggressiveCombat: 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!
* PrehensileHair: In the manga. [[spoiler: She uses it to choke Mercury and Jupiter to death, before ripping out their Star Seeds.]]
* SirensAreMermaids: Despite her name she draws on Mermaid motifs: Comes from Planet Mermaid, [[spoiler: and killed Sailor Mermaid]], has an overall blue color scheme, a seashell charm on her choker, her attack, Galactia Tsunami, is water based. (In the anime it is just her throwing juice boxes and water bottles). Her anime civilian name, Reiko Aya, even contains a pun on Mermaid. She does not sing and aside from her relationship with Lead Crow, has no connection to birds.
* SmallRoleBigImpact: [[spoiler: Her discovery of the identities of the Sailor Guardians sets up the last seven episodes of the 90s anime. Siren wrote down their names in her diary, which is found by Lead Crow in 193 and exposes not only their names to Sailor Tin Nyanko but draws out Princess Kakyuu. In a way, Siren's actions are the ones responsible for instigating the climax of the last season.]]

!!'''Sailor Lead Crow aka Akane Karasuma'''
->'''Voiced by''': Chiharu Suzuka (JP), Gisela Casillas ([=LatAm=]), Cristina Paiva (PT)
%%, ??? (Viz) (EN)
From the planet Coronis, also the homeworld of Phobos and Deimos in the manga.
%%* AbsoluteCleavage
%%* AntiVillain: In the anime.
* BrokenBird: [[spoiler: Seiren's death really messes her up, and most of her appearances afterwards show she's increasingly losing hope of staying alive. You can actually pinpoint the exact moment Lead Crow finally gives up literal seconds before she dies.]]
* ButtMonkey: Whenever she had to be the StraightMan for Seiren.
* CantSpitItOut: 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.
* DarkActionGirl: Taken UpToEleven 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.
%%* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* EvilCounterpart: To Rei in the anime. Her {{Tsundere}} habits with Seiren are quite similar to Rei's tendencies with Usagi.
%%* EvilRedHead
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In the anime, though she had "assistance" from Tin Nyanko.
* InsistentTerminology: 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. [[spoiler: It fails.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Less so than Aluminum Seiren. Crow is always the more serious of the two, and shows just how deadly she is when sends the Inner Guardians flying into stone and glass walls and threatens to unleash a black hole capable of killing thousands if she doesn't get Usagi's star seed.
* PassThePopcorn: She often loves to stand back and watch when Seiren starts acting vicious on a target.
%%* {{Stripperiffic}}
%%* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Aluminium Seiren.

!!'''Sailor Tin Nyanko aka Suzu Nyanko'''
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/IkueOtani (JP), Ana Maria Grey ([=LatAm=]), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT)
From the planet Mau, also the homeworld of Luna and Artemis in the manga.
* AntiVillain: In the manga (definately not in the anime, although this is because she's BrainwashedAndCrazy.)
%%* CatGirl
* DirtyCoward: In the first anime, she almost never attacks anyone directly, believing it's smarter to attack from behind.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Especially to Lead Crow in the first anime. Her directly mocking Crow [[spoiler: immediately after mocking Seiren while Galaxia killed her]] is followed by Tin Nyanko halfheartedly acting as though they're friends even as she sabotages Lead Crow's missions and [[spoiler: kills her.]]
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler: 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.]]
%%* SmugSnake
* TheSociopath: Her BrainwashedAndCrazy 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 and Musicals.
* ActionMom: A surprisingly evil variant, though her being a mother isn't touched upon in the series proper.
* AllThereInTheManual: The artbooks list her as a Samba dancer and a mother. They're also the source of the name of her planet.
* PlayingWithFire: Her Galactica Scales attack is fire-based.
* AdaptedOut: The only member of the Animamates to not appear in the anime

[[folder:Sailor Phi and Sailor Chi]]
!!'''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.

* AvengingTheVillain: After Sailor Phi is killed by Sailor Moon, Chi is so enraged that she [[spoiler: shoves her staff straight through Sailor Kakyuu's chest until it reaches the floor.]]
%%* AxCrazy
* TheDragon: The most prominent reoccurring members of Shadow Galactica besides Galaxia herself.
* CreepyTwins: Possibly. They look alike and have similar names but they aren't outright called sisters.
* HeroKiller: They kill off Lethe, Mnemosyne, the Starlights, and Chi personally kills Kakyuu.
* NoblewomansLaugh: In the manga, their EvilLaugh is a prominent "OHOHOHOHOHO" as they kill Lethe and Mnemosyne.
* PlantPerson: 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.

[[folder:Sailor Mnemosyne and Sailor Lethe]]
!!'''Sailor Mnemosyne and Sailor Lethe'''
From the planets Mnemosyne and Lethe. They appear only in the manga.
* AntiVillain: 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.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: 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.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Same as above.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Lethe and Mnemosyne.

"False Sailor Guardian" used as the MonsterOfTheWeek in the fifth season of the anime. They do not exist in the manga, however, and were created as filler.

* AffablyEvil: Some of them are, well, damn funny. [[LetsGetDangerous Until they properly attack.]]
* BodyHorror: See below.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy - WasOnceAMan: 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 [[TraumaInducedAmnesia without any memories of what happened.]]
%%* HarmlessVillain: Some of them.
* MadnessMantra: 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. [[spoiler: His cousin Rei/Mars saw him and recognized him as Kengo, as she'd once witnessed his slumps, and managed to calm him down enough for Moon to purify him.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Phage" comes from the Greek word for "to eat" or "to consume". it also refers to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phage the bacteriophage]] viruses that infect and replicate within bacteria.
%%* MonsterOfTheWeek
* OneGenderRace: Averted, they were created from both men and women.
* TheOjou: One Phage was created from a RichBitch and TV actress named Noriko Okamachi. She was called Sailor Ojou.

!'''Other villains'''

[[folder:Makai Tree Aliens]]
Two anime-exclusive aliens who showed up at the start of ''R''. Their idea of love is skewed at best.

* AwesomeMcCoolName: Their human aliases, though only someone who speaks Japanese would think so. Their surname means "galaxy", after all. It's even lampshaded when they are first introduced at school, with Umino stating that "Seijuro Ginga" sounds too cool to be true.
* AntiVillain: They have no villainous agenda - they just want to survive. It's just that they misunderstand positive emotions like love, and so their idea of how to keep themselves alive is through unethical means of stealing life energy from Earth.
* BrotherSisterIncest: In the "we're siblings ''and'' like Adam and Eve" sense. Even in their human disguises, they are clingy towards each other, as a {{squick}}ed Makoto points out once when "Natsumi" whines at her for flirting with "Seijuro" and then at him for "playing along" ("Whoa. Such ''weird'' siblings!")
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler: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 An'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.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite their general disregard for human life, they seem averse to killing, having outright stated on more than one occasion that they will only take as much energy from a victim as they can without it being lethal.
* FillerVillain: The only major example in the 90s anime. Later they just stretched manga arcs by filling them with plot-irrelevant MonsterOfTheWeek fights.
* HumanoidAliens: Both of them.
* LastOfHisKind: As far as they know, they are the last of their species. However, Fiore of the R movie has a very similar appearance, suggesting that he is another of their kind.
* LivingWithTheVillain: They attend Juuban Junior High School in their human disguises, right alongside Usagi, Ami and Makoto, with neither the aliens nor the Guardians knowing the others' real identity.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: 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 were an object. [[spoiler: The siblings are set straight at the end of their arc.]]
* MadLove: Subversion--Ail does "love" An, but she is by far the more clingy and obsessive of the two, and he is less prone to GreenEyedMonster moments than she is.
* MeaningfulName: Combine Ail and An, and you get "Alien". The original English dub made this more obvious by changing their names to "Ali" and "En". Their human surname "Ginga" also means "galaxy", fitting for two extraterrestrials.
* NoSocialSkills: Both of them, as is to be expected from two aliens posing as high school students. Their clingy behavior towards each other despite being siblings especially weirds people out.
* RedOniBlueOni: An being Red and Ail being Blue.
* UnholyMatrimony: Though [[spoiler: by the time they become a full-on couple, they're good.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: They decide to destroy the planet after being rejected by Usagi and Mamoru.
* WouldHurtAChild: One episode has them targeting the "fresh and young" energy found in human children, and the next episode has them taking it a step further and targeting ''babies''. Though, fortunately, no one is seriously hurt.

!!'''The Makai Tree'''
->'''Voiced by:''' Taeko Nakanishi (JP), Liz Hannah ([=DiC=]), Creator/ErinFitzgerald (Viz) (EN)
* AntiVillain: It was never evil to begin with, and was originally known as the TreeOfLife, but the greed and selfishness of its alien children warped and corrupted it.
%%* CombatTentacles
* EldritchAbomination: All the negative energy it absorbed against its will turned it into one.
* ThePowerOfLove: The energy the tree truly needs in order to sustain itself.

* RedemptionEarnsLife: Sailor Moon purifies it and allows it to be reborn as a sapling.
%%* TreeOfLife: Once was this.
* VillainousBreakdown: Due to absorbing too much unwanted energy.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/HikaruMidorikawa (JP), Vince Corazza ([=DiC=]), Creator/BrianBeacock (Viz) (EN), Guillermo Saucedo ([=LatAm=]), António Semedo (PT)
* {{Adorkable}}: In his human guise, he tries to be the cool and mysterious type, but his unfamiliarity and curiosity with human behavior ultimately makes him this, such as when he is forced to wear ridiculous costumes for a fashion show and doesn't realize that he is being laughed at, or when he eats human food for the first time with Makoto. His interactions with Usagi take this even further.
* AffablyEvil: Is less cruel and vindictive than An is, especially as a human.
* {{Bishonen}}: In both his alien and human forms.
* DeathDealer: Summons his monsters from a deck of cards.
* GreenEyedMonster: He doesn't go as outwardly crazy as An does with jealousy due to his calmer, less emotional nature, but he does order the Makai Tree to destroy Earth when his heart is broken by Usagi choosing Mamoru.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: When he witnesses Usagi and Mamoru protecting one another from An's onslaught, he realizes how wrong he and An have been concerning the nature of love.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Since An has little in the way of subtlety, it falls on Ail to think up the evil plans.
* MagicMusic: Plays a magical flute.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Tries this on Mamoru twice.
%%* MusicalAssassin
* NoSocialSkills: A more endearing example than An, as he makes more of an effort to fit in and make friends at school.
%%* RedemptionEarnsLife
* SayMyName: Shouts An's name after she [[spoiler: takes a hit from the raging Makai Tree for him]] and then when she [[spoiler: dies in his arms]] immediately after. The second one is especially gut-wrenching, courtesy of Hikaru Midorikawa.
* StalkerWithACrush: His behavior toward Usagi. She takes it as well as you'd expect.
* {{Yandere}}: Male one, for Usagi. Unlike the more emotional Natsumi, he tends more towards DissonantSerenity, which only seems to weird Usagi out rather than attract her.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/YumiTouma (JP), Sabrina Grdevich ([=DiC=]), Creator/DorothyEliasFahn (credited as Johanna Luis) (Viz) (EN) Carola Vázquez ([=LatAm=]), Isabel Wolmar (PT)
* AlphaBitch: In her human guise, she plays this role, though strangely (and dramatically ironically) in the arc's last few episodes she gets [[LovableAlphaBitch nicer as a human]] and [[GreenEyedMonster more evil as an alien]]. She even almost befriends Usagi prior to the two-part arc finale, but [[YankTheDogsChain the negative energy absorbed from the Makai Tree puts a quick stop to that.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: Her behavior toward Mamoru ''and'' Ail.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: In Ail's. [[spoiler: She gets better]].
* GreenEyedMonster: As if she wasn't a {{Yandere}} before, she goes ''insane'' with jealousy during her last fight.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: She has hers after TakingTheBullet for Ail.]]
* IllGirl: Often gets tires more quickly than Ail and requires more energy.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Gets hit with this when the Makai Tree snaps and tries to attack Ail, which she jumps in the way of]].
* ItsAllAboutMe: In one episode, she wins the part of Snow White for a school play (after rigging a straw drawing game), and naturally becomes even more of a diva than she already was. The Guardians speculate this is her way of coping with the fact that she doesn't have any friends and is lonely, which later turns out to be true to an extent.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Tries this on Usagi twice.
* NotSoDifferent: At one point, Rei compares An to herself. Indeed, An is eerily similar to Rei from the first season with her {{Tsundere}} attitude, argumentive {{Jerkass}} behavior toward Usagi, and clingy crush on Mamoru.
* NoSocialSkills: She's mean to everyone except Ail and Mamoru, the latter whom she repeatedly forces herself on.
* TheRival: To Usagi, for Mamoru's affection.
* RedemptionEarnsLife: [[spoiler: And being ''revived'', as the Makai Tree had killed her in its VillainousBreakdown.]]
* StalkerWithACrush: Towards Mamoru. He rejects her time after time, but this doesn't stop her.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: Takes an impaling branch to the chest that was meant for Ail.]]

* AmbiguouslyGay: A lot of people believe that he harbors romantic feelings for Mamoru and thinks of Usagi as his romantic rival.
* AntiVillain: He just wants to make Mamoru happy...
* EntitledToHaveYou: 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.
* ForgottenFriendNewFoe: To Mamoru.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After being freed from the Xenian Flower's power, he gives Mamoru the nectar, which revives Usagi. Seems to be a RedemptionEqualsDeath case as well, though we see him reborn as a child and drifting away into space immediately afterward.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil and LoveMakesYouCrazy: The Xenian Flower uses his feelings for Mamoru to control him into becoming her willing servant for the destruction of Earth.
* MoreThanMindControl: Xenian's hold on him is very physical and emotional as well as mental.
* OnlyFriend: Mamoru was the only human kind to him during his stay on Earth. Or so he thought.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: As he electrocutes Sailor Moon and saps her energy in exchange for releasing the other Sailor Guardians, he keeps telling her how selfish and stupid and unfit for Mamoru she is. The Guardians tell him [[ShutUpHannibal to shut his mouth and leave her alone]]

!!Zeta and Epsilon
Personifications of stars in the Lyre constellation, they manipulate the weaver Shokujo into helping them brainwash girls so they can steal their energy in "Chibi-Usa's Picture Diary: Beware of Tanabata."

* CreepyTwins: Which one's Zeta and which one's Epsilon isn't clear, although one wears a top with lighter coloring than her sister.
* FlatCharacter: The flattest of the side story bad guys. They're given no explanation as to why they want energy nor what their relation to Shokujo is other than their stars share the Lyre constellation. As a matter of fact, they die one page after their roles are revealed.
* StrawFeminist: They turn Shokujo into one by exploiting her lack of trust in her husband, and try to turn young women into this by brainwashing them with Sailor Moon watches.

!!Genius Locii
The bad guys of the "Exam Diary Battles," "Chibi-Usa's Picture Diary: Beware of Cavities," and "The Secret Hammer Price Hall." These are spirits who dwell in certain areas the Guardians visit, and after awakening they each end up targeting one specific girl for different reasons. None of them save Bonnun made it into other formats beyond the manga.

* AdaptedOut:
** The only GeniusLoci to appear out of the manga was Bonnun in the "Ami's First Love" movie special.

** Touhii-chan feeds on the anxiety of people suffering from escapism.
** Resin feeds on pain from toothaches and cavities.
* FatteningTheVictim: Touhii-chan feeds off the energy of escapists by enticing them with baked goods and herbal tea, intending to drain their energy after they've stuffed themselves.
* GeniusLoci: All of them inhabit areas in the Juban area.
* PsychoLesbian: Ghost Sistern targets young women who she believes are "Vulgar" and attacks by kissing them.
