Fandom Specific Plot: Sailor Moon


  • Mamoru abuses Usagi or dies. Usagi runs to Demand/Haruka/SEIYA. ChibiUsa is either handwaved into a new child or ignored outright.
    • Alternatively, Mamoru abuses Usagi but she still stays with him for the good of the world and to have ChibiUsa. She then has an affair with Demand/Haruka/Seiya.
      • Usagi and Seiya's bastard child goes to the past/Earth to learn about her history (and accidentally get her parents back together)/purposely get her parents back together/stop her own birth.
  • ChibiUsa comes back from the future as a chesty teen and is much more badass.
  • Usagi is betrayed by Mamoru and/or the Inner senshi. She joins the Outers or Starlights, romances Haruka or Seiya, and is suddenly totally badass/capable/intelligent.
  • One that was popular in the early days of the English fandom: Amara abuses Michelle. Gary Stu arrives to tell Amara off and rescue poor, vulnerable Michelle from the "sin" of homosexuality. (Extremely discredited nowadays. Don't write a fanfic like this unless you want to be nuked from orbit by the rest of the fandom.)
  • Crossovers with Ranma where girl-type Ranma joins the Sailor Scouts are common enough to have their own name.
  • The Space-Time Door is often written as a magical scrying computer that Sailor Pluto uses to view the past, present and future of many multiple time-lines and universes, often to keep an eye out on "threats to Crystal Tokyo". In the actual series, the door is never shown to be anything but a door.
  • Kunzite mourning the loss of his love, Zoisite. These can range from simple angsty one-shots to longer plots (Kunzite working with the Senshi to bring Zoisite back to life, turning to Usagi for comfort, betraying Beryl).
  • Nephrite comes back from the dead to rekindle his romance with Naru, or accepts that she's moved on. Either way, he keeps the chocolate parfait promise.
  • Rei is secretly in love with Usagi! Unfortunately, she's destined for Mamoru, so Rei must suffer valiantly in her unrequited love or wait for Mamoru to either nobly step aside, turn into a dick or get run over by a truck so she can make her move. Though one fic has Mamoru totally cool with Usagi dumping him for Rei and giving her his sperm in a can to make ChibiUsa. No, really.
  • Sailor Pluto learns about her planet getting demoted and wreaks revenge on the culprits. These are usually Crack Fics, but there's the rare Angst fic.
