YMMV: Sailor Moon Abridged
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Even a series like this has one. Lita's interrupting the dialog to say, "It's Hamma Time!" with the group proceeding to do the classic MC Hammer dance for a few seconds before continuing the episode.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Bulimia jokes. It got dropped for a few episodes.
    • "Bulimia - zero the calories, twice the flavor!"
    • In the bloopers for episode 17, KrisRix has trouble reading a particularly ridiculous line. Max Scate tells her to think of the Holocaust. And it just keeps going from there...
    Eric: Corinne's half Jewish!
    [...]
    Megami: I can't really be sad, too, because my grandparents are German.
    Kris: You're killing yourself!
    Megami: They weren't involved in that! Shut up!
    Kris: Sure...
    Christian: Hey no, guys, be quiet. My grandfather died in Auschwitz. He got drunk and fell off the guard tower.
    Kris: Are you serious?
    Christian: No!
    Young Darien: Take my flower, since you've already taken my cherry.
  • Designated Hero: The entire cast, really, a collection of jerks, idiots, a psychopath, a drunk, are basically a generally incompetent and unsympathetic bunch.
  • Ear Worm: The songs used for the girls' transformation sequences are pretty addicting; what makes them work is how well they fit with each Scout's character/motif.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Raye, emphasis on Dark.
  • Fridge Logic
    Amy: The only thing I don't get is why Jedite didn't just really burn the city down. He would have gotten all three of us.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Zoicite's comment that "The Negaverse sees everything, just like the government!" has become more difficult to laugh at since the various scandals surrounding the NSA.
  • Growing the Beard: To the extent that some fans would recommend that newbies start a few episodes in (like around when Amy and Raye were introduced) rather than right at the beginning of the series.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Alan and Ann might remind people of The Hessenheffers, but SMA was characterizing them that way before Shake It Up even premiered.
  • Hollywood Fatass: Serena.
  • Les Yay: Rei in episode 13/14.
    Serena: Who died and made you school security?
    Rei: Satan.
    Serena: But you're going to a Catholic school!
    Rei: Catholic girls taste better.
    • And she has a pair of lesbian henchgirls to do her bidding in episode 48 too. And a LOT of fangirls/groupies at her performance
  • Memetic Mutation: ROSE!
  • The Woobie: Once you get past the jokes made at Amy's expense, she at least deserves some sympathy.
  • They Just Didn't Care: It's that type of show.
    • Luna says she knows about the crystals because of the manga, but the crystals were made up for the anime.
    • All the American jokes get annoying when you realize the dub was Canadian. Really, all the voices (except Mercury, who was British, but not Luna), writers, editors, musicians for the dub were Canadian.
      • But then you realize that Canada is apart of North AMERICA so there's that...and the dub was still made with United States children in mine as the licensing company (DIC) is based in America.
      • Canada doesn't exist though, there is only North Mexico.
    • The intro to Episode 43 says, "Today's Episode is brought to you by Espaņa!" As in Spain. But that's a Mexican flag in the background (see Spexico above).
  • Too Good to Last: The original plan was too finish the series at the Doom Tree arc which would have already made it this trope, but the busy lives of the creators led to the series ending the third to last episode. On a cliffhanger no less.
  • What an Idiot: In Episode 45, Sailor Moon, at a crucial moment during a battle with the Monster of the Week, decides to take advice from Mina. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
