* ForegoneConclusion: Those who are familiar with the original anime and/or manga will already know what will happen in ''Crystal'' such as Usagi revealing herself as Princess Serenity again.

** Makoto's hair, which is typically pink in the original manga's color artwork, was changed to brown in the '90's anime[[note]]although later colored manga art did start using brown instead[[/note]]. In ''Crystal'' her hair is a lighter reddish brown shade that is a middle ground between the two previous versions.

** Notably averted in the first two story arcs. While otherwise TruerToTheText, ''Crystal'' lacks the manga and first anime's shifts to broader comedy tropes like {{Chibi}}, BlankFaceOfShame and WingdingEyes, and dispenses with some associated GraphicalTropes, ({{Visible Sigh}}s, large {{Sweat Drop}}s and the like). While not lacking in {{slapstick}}, the result is a less ZanyCartoon tone. Played with in Act 19, where comedic elements were finally accompanied by the animated comedy tropes, such as Sailor Moon being shocked to hear that Chibi-Usa's a princess, or when Mamoru blushes wide-eyed when Usagi tells him that Chibi-Usa loves him, among some examples.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Minako - and Makoto and Usagi to a lesser extent - act this way in the third season. She tends to act immature and boy-crazy in her civilian form, but as Guardians she proves being very competent and effective as leader of the Sailor Guardians.

*** The third season takes it even further by more or less reanimating the stock footage for any attacks that appeared in the '90s anime, including lesser known ones like Mercury Aqua Mirage, and the scene where the Daimon Egg implants itself in the first episode is very similar to the animation used in Sailor Moon S.

* SexySurfacingShot: The first time we see Michiru she is swimming in her apartment and climbs out of the pool in a swimsuit while [[MermaidArcEmergence throwing her head back]].

Added DiffLines:

** During a flashback when we see Professor Tomoe consume the Diamon seed, his face looks exactly like it did in the 90's anime, [[FaceFramedInShadow framed in shadow]] with ScaryShinyGlasses and a red SlasherSmile.

** The Dream Arc movie duology will have [[https://cdn.animenewsnetwork.com/thumbnails/max600x600/cms/news.2/148439/eternal.jpg another art shift]], with Kazuko Tadano, the original character designer from the original anime, returning to do designs.


* NoodlePeople: This is especially [[ExaggeratedTrope pronounced]] in the first two seasons, where Yukie Sato's character designs hew closer to manga-ka Creator/NaokoTakeuchi's original willowy, leggy {{bishoujo}} look, but also ''lack'' the source material's periodic lapses into cartoonier, SuperDeformed states.

* RoleReprisal:
** Creator/KotonoMitsuishi returns to reprise her role as Usagi[=/=]Sailor Moon after the 17-year gap between the 90's anime and ''Crystal'', but her voice is [[VocalEvolution noticeably different]]. She sounds exactly like [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Hummy]], and her [[CuteButCacophonic wails and whines]] channel [[Anime/OruchubanEbichu Ebichu]]. Not only that, but Mitsuishi is one of the only original cast members to reprise her role this time around.
** The same goes for Usagi's German voice actress Sabine Bohlmann, who returned to voice the character after she went on maternity leave when the 90's anime first aired in Germany.
** The entire English cast of the Creator/VizMedia dub reprise their roles from Viz's re-dub of the 90's anime as well.
** For the Latin American Spanish dub, the original voice actresses of the Sailor Guardians reprised their roles. However, Makoto and Setsuna were respectively recast with Adriana Olmedo[[note]]As by then, Makoto's original voice actress, Creator/AraceliDeLeon, died of a heart attack[[/note]] and Betzabé Jara[[note]]Her original voice, Anabel Méndez, left Dubbing House owing to disagreements with the studio. Although Méndez was offered to return to reprise her role, she ultimately decided not to participate when Dubbing House declined her offer to do another voice test[[/note]]. Paco Mauri, the original Wiseman[=/=]Death Phantom, also reprised his role for ''Crystal''.


* [[AdaptationalNiceGuy Adaptational Nice Girl]]: Chibiusa is much more mature and level-headed here than in ''Sailor Moon R''.

Added DiffLines:

** This first ending for Season 3 recreates the intertwining hands scene between Haruka and Michiru from the first anime.


* AluminumChristmasTrees: The retention of Game Center Crown in ''Crystal'' may seem to run counter to its SettingUpdate to non-Japanese viewers, given that the VideoArcade isn't as popular in the west as it once was, and the [[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon 2003 tokusatsu]]'s change to a Karaoke Bar, but though [[https://kotaku.com/what-could-kill-japanese-arcades-1552675093 contracting]], arcade gaming remains the ''largest'' sector of Japan's gaming market.
* AmbiguouslyBi: Usagi is infatuated not only with Tuxedo Mask and Mamoru, but with every single guardian's looks as well. It's less intense with the guardians ([[OfficialCouple likely due to it being Mamoru that she ends up with]]), but definitely still there; she even ''follows Rei home'' [[StalkerWithACrush specifically because of how pretty she is]]. There is no confirmation if she's actually bisexual.
