Awesome Music / Sailor Moon

Go To

  • Sailor Moon has several songs for major battles that get you pumped up, including "Ai no Senshi" (the senshi vs the black moon sisters), "Moon Revenge" (the R movie finale), and "La Soldier" (the battle against Wiseman). Also, while the dub is what it is it gave us "Carry On" for the final battle of the first season. "La Soldier" and "Moon Revenge" come from the Sera Myus, which are just chock full of all the awesome music. Some of the best music you can find in Sailor Moon was never in the anime.

  • Moonlight Densetsu is tops. Especially the last time it plays. It completes the entire series. And the locket version is no less memorable.
    • This cover made by Cristina Vee is a good English cover on its own, but it's even better as she'd eventually be cast as the official English voice of Sailor Mars.
    • This song blends the lyrics of the DiC English theme with a translation of the Japanese theme practically perfectly.
  • "Sailor Senshi Reunion", which first plays as Sailor Moon goes to face Beryl alone with the other Senshi dead in the traps of the DD Girls. It's at first grimmly determined and badass, but at the 1:20 mark it descends into a real Tear Jerker as a sudden violin solo cuts through the scene like a knife that really tugs at the heartstrings.
  • The DiC dub may be more known for hilarity than awesomeness, but its soundtrack is one of the best of any adaptation.

  • "Mysterious Starry Sky, Part 5", a short, understated theme that tends to play when Usagi and Mamoru share a moment of connection as memories of their past lives surface. It's les than a minute in length, but it's memorable enough you'll recognize it when it plays from time to time.
  • Yet another example from the dub. Similar to "My Only Love", the scene where Jupiter recounts her first brush with love gave us "Rainny Day Man", a reflective and wistful pop song.
  • The Outer Senshi theme. You can expect badass moments whenever this song comes on. And the violin strings are clearly a reference to Sailor Neptune being a violinist.
  • Another dub one: "She's Got The Power". Come on, it's by Stan "The Touch" Bush, how can it not be awesome?
  • The original "Moon Prism Power" and "Crystal Power, Make Up!" are perfect pre-ass-kicking transformation music.
  • Rica Fukami (Sailor Venus' voice actress) singing "Venus" (the original version from Shocking Blue, not the Bananarama cover). Bonus point for it being exactly what Minako would do... And for her themes in the old fighting games being based on this song.
  • Megumi Ogata, the original voice actress for Sailor Uranus, released a cover of "Moon Revenge" done alongside Masako Katsuki, the original voice actress of Sailor Neptune. This takes an already awesome song and turns it into a powerful duet about Uranus and Neptune's love for one another transcending time, and keep in mind the two of them never shared a song during the original run of the series. Twenty-five years later, and the two of them are still doing the voices of Haruka and Michiru.
  • Of the original anime's ending songs, easily one of the most iconic is the first ending of Super S, "I Want to Be Us" (Watashi-tachi ni naritakute), effectively the love theme between Chibiusa and Helios, especially played when Pegasus reveals himself to be Helios. And it speaks of the song's iconic status that it is the only song from the original anime to make the jump into the Crystal remake, as the ending song for the first part of Sailor Moon Eternal, the Crystal adaptation of the Dead Moon Circus arc. No, not even the de facto franchise theme song, "Moonlight Densetsu", had this honor (although it was used in the trailer for Eternal).
