Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatedBadassery: Zigzagged. When [[spoiler:Sailor Luna]] challenges Kunzite so [[spoiler:Sailor Moon can focus on restoring Ami from Dark Mercury]], Kunzite rolls his eyes and smirks. Then he finds out she can weaponize TeleportationSpam so he can't get a clear shot, and she ''bops'' him on the nose with her fan. Kunzite, more shocked than hurt, gives a very uncharacteristic WTF look before one-shotting her.


* FiveManBand:
** The sailor soldiers
*** Usagi = {{The Hero}}ine / TheHeart
*** Minako = TheLeader
*** Rei = TheLancer
*** Ami = [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]
*** Makoto = [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]]
*** Luna (human) = SixthRanger / TagalongKid
*** Luna & Artemis = {{The Mentor}}s
** Endymion and the Shitennou
*** Endymion = TheHero
*** Jadeite = SmartGuy
*** Nephrite = BigGuy
*** Zoisite = TheHeart
*** Kunzite = TheLancer
** The villains
*** Metallia = BiggerBad
*** Beryl = BigBad
*** Jadeite = TheDragon
*** Nephrite = TheBrute
*** Zoisite = [[TheHeart Dark Heart]]
*** Kunzite = EvilGenius
*** Mio Kuroki = DarkChick


* {{Adorkable}}: Ami embodies the trope; Usagi when she's fangirling around Minako.


* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: The original Sailor Moon manga ends with [[spoiler:Usagi saving the Earth and reviving it as Crystal Tokyo under her rule]], while the anime features [[spoiler:Usagi reviving everyone and continuing her adventures as a Senshi teenager]]. In the live-action, neither of these happen: [[spoiler:the Senshi all lose their powers after Usagi revives them and the Earth, and their love for her bring her and Mamoru back to life. She gets married to Mamoru when she's eighteen, transforms one last time to defeat a revived Mio, and settles for a happy, normal life]].



* AlternateContinuity

to:

* AlternateContinuityAlternateContinuity: It's confirmed that in this timeline, [[spoiler:the Senshi all lose their powers permanently after Usagi's wedding. This means that Usagi will never become Neo-Queen Serenity, which in turn means the Black Moon and a future Chibi-Usa will never come back in time to create a new threat. What's more, the Outer Senshi aren't awakened if they exist, and Usagi purifies neither Galaxia nor the Star Cauldron]].


Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: More sweet than bitter. [[spoiler:The senshi and Earth are revived, albeit without their powers and the Shittenou stay dead. All the girls' love for Usagi allows them to revive her in turn, as a normal girl. She marries Mamoru after transforming one last time to save the world from Mio and is fine with moving on from the trauma. Makoto, unlike every other adaptation, gets a boyfriend and fiance in Motoki, who loves her. Ami becomes a successful doctor, Rei finds friends, and Minako revives her singing career, fighting her terminal illness successfully. The only sour part is the Shittenou have to bid goodbye to Mamoru while promising they will always watch over him]].


** Usagi - begins as all versions of Usagi do - upbeat and quirky, until getting hit hard in the last third of the series with a serious case of [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses past]] [[SuperpoweredEvilSide life]] [[SubvertedTrope blues]] and needing to deal with [[AdaptationalAngstUpgrade the emotional damage that comes with it]].

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: [[SubvertedTrope NO.]] [[SuperpoweredEvilSide NO, IT REALLY ISN'T.]]


** Minako towards Rei when they first encounter each other, with Minako putting up a JerkassFacade about Rei supposedly being the leader of the Senshi and "punishing" her by making her sing for sick kids at a hospital, which forces Rei to get out of her comfort zone and ask Usagi for help. Eventually, after Minako faints on stage, she reveals this is because [[spoiler:she doesn't have long to live and wants Rei to TakeUpMySword.]]

* JerkassFacade: Minako, whenever she's around the senshi as Sailor Venus. Her general meanness to them is her way of isolating herself from the team [[spoiler: due to her terminal illness.]]

A widely-popularised nationwide search assembled a cast of unknowns for the main characters, for many of whom this was their first big acting gig. While the quality of the ConspicuousCG, a few [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber-suit monsters]] and many combat scenes that resembled dancing more than fighting (a style derogatorily referred to as "Ballet-Fu") expose its uncertain beginnings, all of the staff - from the actors to Creator/ToeiAnimation's CGI artists - gradually grow accustomed to their roles and [[GrowingTheBeard produce a slow but smooth improvement in the show over time]].

* ForeignQueasine: The Dark Kingdom's food is shown in Chapter 37 and seems to involve odd blue fruits, lots of bird's feet, and red bananas.
