    General 
  • Adapted Out: Almost all of them in the musicals, and several of them the live-action as well.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Many of them get one or more episodes in '90s anime series where they play a major role.
  • Ascended Extra: Several have a larger role in first season of the '90s anime and/or in the live-action than in the manga.
  • Badass Normal: Despite having no Sailor powers, many of these characters get their awesome moments and are more useful than you might think when the enemy attacks.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: By the final season, you hardly even see any recurring civilians.
  • Damsel in Distress/Distressed Dude: So many of them end up as the victim of the week on at least one occasion.
  • Demoted to Extra: Even though the civilian cast get a larger role in the '90s anime, their roles are diminished after the first season as the series focuses more and more on the Sailor Guardians.
  • Designated Victim: It's amazing how often the villains' target happens to be someone the Sailor Guardians know. Some are victimized more than others, though.
  • Dub Name Change: Many of them in the original English releases:
    • Naru Osaka to Molly Baker.
    • Gurio Umino to Melvin Butlers.
    • Haruna Sakurada to Patricia Haruna.
    • Shingo Tsukino to Sammy Tsukino.
    • Motoki Furuhata to Andrew Hansford.

    • Reika Nishimura to Rita Blake.
    • Yuuichirou Kumada to Chad Holdenford.
    • Mayumi Osaka to Susan Baker.
    • Yumiko to Yumi.
    • Kuri to Kari.
    • Urawa to Greg.
    • Asanuma to Osamu.
    • Kyuusuke to Kelly.
    • Momoko to Melissa/Melanie.
  • Heroic Bystander: There are several instances where a civilian chooses to stand up to enemy attacks instead of doing nothing.
  • Innocent Bystander: Even when they're not the intended victim, they tend to get caught up in things just by being in the area.
  • Muggles: The non-superpowered friends and families of the Sailor Guardians.
  • Satellite Character: Just about all of them play this role to the Sailor Guardians in at least one continuity, though Adaptation Expansion manages to expand many of them beyond this.
  • Unwitting Muggle Friend: Almost all of them have no idea that the people in their lives are the Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Mask. A few of them become Secret Keepers, though.

The Tsukino family

    General 
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Usagi (sanguine), Kenji (choleric), Shingo (melancholic), Ikuko (phlegmatic).
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: Two females (Usagi and Ikuko) and two males (Shingo and Kenji). Later subverted when Chibiusa comes along, and even more so when Kenji stops appearing.
  • Nuclear Family: Mother, father, son, daughter.
  • Tuckerization: Usagi's family is named after (and based on) Naoko Takeuchi's real-life family: her parents Ikuko and Kenji and younger brother Shingo.

    Shingo Tsukino 

Shingo Tsukino

Click to see him in the 90s anime 
Voiced by: Chiyoko Kawashima (original series), Seira Liu (Crystal) (JP), Julie Lemieux (DiC and Cloverway), Nicolas Roye (Viz) (EN), Rogério Jacques (PT), Ana María Grey (LatAm)
Portrayed in PGSM by: Naoki Takeshi

Usagi's little brother who loves to tease and annoy his big sister. Although he seems like an ignorant child sometimes (such as tactlessly kicking Luna across the room when he disliked cats), he can be much smarter than Usagi, due to his better exam results and his good behavior. Shingo also seems to keep up with the latest trends in his age range, which often gets him into trouble with the typical Sailor Moon villains, leaving it up to his dumb sister as Sailor Moon to save him, who he secretly fanboys over.


  • Academic Athlete: The athlete part is only implied, since he's never actually seen or described as playing sports, but he does keep a soccer ball in his room. You can see it by his door in the Chanela episode.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In Crystal, he is given a cleaner, more tidily-combed hairstyle, rather than like previously where his hair was kind of messy, and is made to look more like your standard adorably youthful boy.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the '90s anime, his hair is light brown. In the manga he's a blonde like Usagi, giving them more of a family resemblance. Crystal compromised by keeping his hair blonde but still rather sandy compared to his sister.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original anime, he's a typical Annoying Younger Sibling, somewhat mouthy and cocky, and more social and outwardly emotional than in other versions. In the live-action, he's more cynical than bratty, and behaves like a serious and mature Only Sane Man who keeps to himself. Crystal seems to lean more towards the latter.
  • Adorably Precocious Child: Can slip into this sometimes, and don't think he won't if it works to his advantage.
  • Adorkable: He may be a bit of a geek who's smart and obsessed with video games, but his behavior can come off as cute, as many girls in the Sailor Moon universe can testify (he is said to be popular with the girls in his class).
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Milder version. He can be annoying and nagging, but otherwise is less whiny than other kids like him. Mostly because his sister is more than whiny enough for the both of them and it's often him who's exasperated with her. He provides the trope image for a good reason, though.
  • Art Evolution/I Got Bigger: One of the few characters to visibly age in the '90s anime. The first season drew him the way most children appear in anime. In later appearances he looks more (appropriately) like a preteen and has had something of a growth spurt. This was probably done to make him look older than Chibi-Usa but still younger than Usagi.
  • Ascended Extra: Somewhat in the '90s anime, where he appears in many episodes and gets multiple days in the limelight.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Stands up for Chibiusa when Usagi picks on her. He also tries to protect girls he cares about from enemy attacks.
  • Big Eater: Nowhere near to the extent of his sister, but he is sometimes said to be this too, which makes sense since at his age he's got some growth spurts to fuel (one of which appears to begin at the start of the second season).
  • Big Little Brother: He's not taller than Usagi, but he often acts more mature than her, and in the second season, he starts catching up to her in height. By the fourth season he's almost as tall as her, implying that he will be the taller one when they're adults.
  • Big Sister Worship: In an odd variation, he regularly criticizes and irritates Usagi as herself, but idolizes her as Sailor Moon. Imagine how he'd react if he found out Usagi and Sailor Moon were the same person.
  • Bishounen: Between Special Act and some of the later artwork, it's implied that he'll grow up to be one. No surprise, given how most teen and adult male characters in the series seem to be that way.
  • Brainy Brunette: He's very intelligent and in the '90s anime, he has sandy brown hair.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Gets good grades with zero effort and spends the rest of his time playing video games, reading comics, and messing with his sister.
  • Brutal Honesty: Generally he will speak his mind or tell it like it is, and can be pretty tactless about it. Usually at Usagi's expense.
  • The Cameo: In the manga, he makes a brief one in Chibi-Usa's picture diary, his only his appearance (aside from supplementary artwork) after her introduction.
  • Child Prodigy: As indicated above, he gets good grades without any trouble, and he's only about eleven at the start of the series.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In the manga, and by extension Crystal, after Chibiusa is introduced (though he reappears very briefly in Chibiusa's Picture Diary). Apparently, there was only room for one Annoying Younger Sibling. In the 90s anime, though, it was his father who disappeared around this time while he continued to make occasional appearances until mid-season 4 before disappearing.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Sometimes acted like one of these to his mother in the live-action.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Normally blunt, snarky and irritable, but cute things seem to bring out a sweet and nurturing side in him. His first major episode has the villains exploit this trope over him and many other people with the perfume-scented bunny-like Chanela pets.
  • The Cynic: One of the more cynical characters in general, but especially in the live-action.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He often walks away with some of the best lines when he shows up.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the first season/first episodes of R.
  • Distressed Dude: In Sailor Moon: Another Story, the enemy takes Shingo hostage and demands the Silver Crystal as ransom.
  • Everyone's Baby Sister: He's on good terms with all of the Inner Guardians, and when he's in trouble, they save him as a team. After rescuing him in Another Story, they agree that he's like a little brother to all of them.
  • Eyelid Pull Taunt: Pulls this off to Usagi in the first episode of both anime series. In the original anime, he does it in a comical fashion, while in Crystal, his expression is more subtle and deadpan.
  • Fan Boy: More exactly, he's a Sailor Moon fanboy.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The responsible to Usagi's foolish. Much more intelligent than her, he knows how to take charge of his own life and do well in school.
  • Heroic Bystander: For a preteen, Shingo has some serious cojones. Aside from his brief fear of cats, he rarely loses his head when he ends up in the middle of weirdness Usagi attracts, and once even tried to fight a villain head on to protect Ami, buying enough time for the rest of the Sailor Guardians to find them.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: He teases and complains about Usagi, but when the video game villain Sin badmouths her, he won't stand for it. Since he doesn't mind when Chibi-Usa does it or when Ikuko punishes Usagi, it could be that he thinks only family has the right to do things like that.
  • Insufferable Genius: He's a great student, his sister is a Book Dumb Ditz and he won't let her forget it.
  • In the Name of the Moon: A somewhat parody of one where he imitates the Sailor Guardians at a virtual reality arcade, calling himself "Sneakers Shingo" ("Super Sammy" in the English dub) and even quoting Sailor Moon's phrase "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!"
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Much like Sailor Mars, when Shingo makes a harsh criticism towards Usagi regarding her grades and laziness, he's generally right. For example, when he claims why his sister wouldn't make it as a model, their mother admits that he's right about that.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be snarky and ruffle Usagi's feathers, but don't think for a minute that he doesn't care. In one episode, when Usagi goes missing, he regrets how he acted towards her and makes every effort to find her, and in Another Story, he stands up for her when Sin calls her a bad sister. He also cares a lot about his other family and friends.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: In the early episodes. For many viewers, he was more likeable than Chibi-Usa because he was less annoying and never overused.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: A double-subversion with Luna. He starts out terrified of Luna and treats her badly, but after some influence from his newfound heroine, he finishes out the episode cuddling and feeding her. Two episodes later, he shows concern for her when he hears Usagi and Naru's bad singing.
  • Likes Older Women: Rei suggests that Shingo might be this trope. Besides his crush on Ami mentioned below, he thinks Sailor V and Sailor Moon are pretty cute (not knowing the latter is his sister).
  • Loves My Alter Ego: Sometimes it seems like an actual crush (an unknowingly Brother–Sister Incest one), while at other times it's pure admiration. Either way, he adores Sailor Moon but doesn't get along with Usagi.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Averted. Whenever we see his bedroom, it always looks unusually neat and tidy for a boy his age.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: Subverted. He's stuck between a pretty and popular teen and an adorable little girl, gets shoved into the background after Chibiusa comes along and has the kind of personality you might expect from someone in this role. However, he never complains about being in the middle, his parents don't play favorites and he doesn't even seem to care that much about getting attention (if anything, he's the one who'd rather be left alone).
  • Mistaken for Romance: Everyone around them keeps thinking he and Mika a couple and it's ship teased as much an episode can, but they don't call each other anything but friends. Shingo really hates it when people call them a couple and always denies it.
  • Modesty Towel: For some reason, he wears it like a girl in the Hot Springs Episode of the series. And he's pretty embarrassed about the situation. When Usagi teases him about it, he steals hers.
  • Mood-Swinger: In The '90s anime, his moods can go all over the place and it often doesn't take much to set them off. Mood swings are common for kids going through puberty.
  • Nice Hat: Owns a blue baseball cap with his Japanese name on it (slightly different romanization, though). In a later episode, he wears a straw beach hat as part of his "tough guy" disguise.
  • The One Guy: When Kenji stops appearing in the original anime and is mostly absent from the live-action, he becomes this to the Tsukino family.
  • Only Sane Man: Mainly in the live-action where he lives in a house of wacky or strange females and knows it, while he's very serious, cynical and mature for an eleven-year-old. Though he's still one of the more levelheaded characters in every version.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: After Chibiusa moves in, he becomes the only boy and middle child between two girls (later three, counting Chibi-Chibi), his father is always out of the house, and even the family cats are female. The live-action counts too, since Luna's human form is basically his little sister.
  • Parent-Child Team: With Kenji in the VR center episode.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Played straight in the Modesty Towel scene, but usually averted; pink is frequently his sister's color, but in the franchise overall, he seems to favor green.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With the '90s anime-only character Mika. They're childhood best friends with a lot affection, but Ship Tease aside, there's no actual romance between them and it irks Shingo when people think there is.
  • The Prankster: Towards Usagi, leading the pair into a war of pranks around their house.
  • Precocious Crush: Has a huge crush on Ami in one episode of the '90s anime.
  • Puppy Love: If one takes his relationship Mika as a budding romance (it's left kinda… ambiguous), it's this at best. They're only in the fifth grade.
  • The Quiet One: In Crystal, he appears to be the quietest member of his family, often just silently hanging around in the background.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In The '90s anime. He's got a protective streak, plenty of courage and a gutsy attitude that says "don't get on my badside", but he also fanboys over magical girls, likes cute pets, wears his Modesty Towel female-style and fondles over a porcelain doll of his heroine.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to his sister's red. Not so much in the 90s anime where he's kind of like red and blue mixed into one.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive to his father's manly (as tough and jerky as he acts in the '90s anime, his focus episodes show that he's really the more sensitive of the two).
  • Ship Tease: He and his best friend Mika get this in the two episodes they appear together, but we never see it go beyond that. A later episode is one big ship tease involving Shingo's crush on Ami.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Although he and Usagi do care about each other, they regularly get on each other's nerves, bicker and exchange rude remarks, like a typical sibling relationship. Averted with Chibiusa, with whom he generally gets along very well.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Usagi is a sweet and cheerful idealist, very outgoing and surrounds herself with friends, but she's also totally unfocused, naïve and a terrible student. Shingo is a sensible kid with top grades, but often moody, snarky and cynical, and he seems to enjoy his own company. About the only common bond they have is a fondness for video games. Both get better, though.
  • Significant Birth Date: We don't know exactly when his birthday is (the math puts it in August), but he was born on the day Usagi and Mamoru met for the first time. It comes up as a plot point in the first movie.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the Tsukino family. In school, he aces all his classes with ease and acts pretty clever in his everyday life too.
  • Terrible Artist: His attempt at creating a ceramic Sailor Moon doll shows this. Apparently, terrible artistry runs in the family.
  • Tiny Schoolboy: Was the (sort of) nice guy and adorkable type, before he grew.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: A bit less of a jerk to Usagi later on. Possibly because both of them are growing up.
  • Tough Love: Certain materials suggest that he's hard on Usagi simply because that's just his job as her little brother, and he's trying to toughen her up to not be such a crybaby.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: His relationship with his sister, just like most siblings. They bicker and annoy each other on a regular, but when things get serious, they worry about each other and will do whatever they can for one another. The original anime plays this trope up. Their arguments appear more in that series, but so does their close and caring relationship.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: The serious child to Ikuko's wacky parent in the live-action.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is terrified of cats in the '90s anime, due to an traumatic incident when he was a toddler. As a result, a whole first season episode is dedicated to Usagi trying to get Luna in his good graces, and after that it's never mentioned again.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Often acts more mature and responsible than his older sister and seems pretty in touch with the world for a preteen.

Voiced by: Sanae Takagi (original series), Yuko Mizutani (Crystal) (JP), Barbara Radecki (DiC and Cloverway), Tara Platt (Viz) (EN), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT), Alejandra de la Rosa and Ruth Toscano (LatAm)
Portrayed in PGSM by: Kaori Moriwaka


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair in the manga is either bright pink or bluish-purple. Both anime series settled on the latter.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Undergoes a Younger and Hipper Cloudcuckoolander change for the live-action.
  • Berserk Button: As an Education Mama, bringing home a school assignment or test with a failing mark is this for her. When Usagi brings one home in the first act/episode, Ikuko gets mad and throws her out of the house.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In the re-released manga, Kenji and Ikuko refer to each other as papa and mama. To be fair, in some older anime and manga, parents refer to each other not by their names but by their positions in the family (i.e., Kyo's parents in The King of Fighters: KYO and Haruto's parents in Haunted Junction.) The joke went Lost in Translation.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In the live-action, she fits this even better than her daughter does, becoming much more quirky, imaginative and outgoing character and often getting involved in some pretty odd stuff.
  • Education Mama: While nowhere near as bad as Minako's mother in Codename: Sailor V, to the point that Minako lists her "hag of a mom" as one of her dislikes, she's still this, and it's a Justified Trope when you remember how completely unmotivated Usagi is when it comes to school work; of course Ikuko's going to be mad when her eldest daughter is always bringing home 35s and 20s (equivalent to an "F" grade) on her tests. In the first act of the manga, she kicks her daughter out of the house when Usagi brings home a 30%, in an attempt to make her study.
  • Good Parents: She and Kenji don't have a big role, but they are portrayed as typical loving parents to their children.
  • Happily Married: She and her husband are very happy and contented together and are never shown to have any issues in their marriage.
  • House Wife: Classic example. Indeed, she is always wearing the same outfit with the same apron, and she stays home, cooks and keeps house while her husband is the sole breadwinner.
  • Let Her Grow Up, Dear: Whereas Kenji is overprotective of their daughter, Ikuko is quite all right with her having a boyfriend to bring over for a meal.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Averted. Usagi was reincarnated, so the Tsukinos are her biological family.
  • Nice Girl: Very nice and caring to everyone she interacts with and is welcoming whenever someone comes over to their house for a visit.
  • Only Sane Woman: In The '90s anime, compared to her ditzy daughter, troubled son and irrational husband, she often serves this role in the Tsukino family. The only time she gets unhinged is if her daughter shows her a failing grade.
  • Open-Minded Parent: In relationship subjects. Unlike Kenji, she has no problems with who Usagi dates, namely Mamoru.
  • Parental Favoritism: Subverted. Usagi sometimes thinks she likes Chibi-Usa more than her, but it's more complicated than that. Ikuko dotes on Chibi-Usa, is tough on Usagi, and mostly leaves Shingo to his own devices, but she loves them all equally. Different kinds of children need different kinds of parenting and she knows who needs what.
  • Parental Substitute: To Chibiusa whenever she comes to the past.
  • Parents in Distress: Was attacked by Hawk's Eye in SuperS.
  • Pink Means Feminine/True Blue Femininity: Besides her blue hair, her normal at-home outfit in Crystal includes a blue skirt, a light pink top and an apron with dark pink trim to show how she is a traditionally feminine House Wife with a very maternal personality.
  • Put on a Bus: Despite making an appearance in all five major arcs of the series, she's notably absent in the third season of the 90s anime.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is not nearly as long as her daughter's, but it is still very long.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: The manga drops a hint of this towards the end. When Usagi leaves (to battle Sailor Galaxia, but obviously she can't say that), Ikuko says that she has a feeling that Usagi may not come back, as she looks up to the sky cradling Luna in her arms.
  • Shipper on Deck: She thinks Mamoru is an excellent catch for her daughter.
  • Sleeping Single: She and her husband sleep in separate beds.
  • Supreme Chef: Is a fantastic cook in all versions of the series. Which is fortunate, since her husband and daughter are terrible cooks. In the live-action, she enjoys experimenting with new recipes.
  • Team Mom: Since the other Guardians' mothers are distant or dead, she seems to pick up this role when the girls come over.
  • Tough Love: Ikuko chides Usagi over low grades and once locked her out of the house for a failing mark, but it's only because she wants her daughter to do better in school. She still shows a lot of love and support for her.
  • Unnamed Parent: Canadian dubs only, where she is merely identified as "Serena's mom". Later subverted when the Cloverway dub once refers to her as Ikuko.
  • Wacky Parent, Serious Child: The wacky parent to Shingo's serious child in the live-action.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The last time she's seen in the manga, Usagi leave the injured Luna Artemis and Diana in her care (Who due to damage to their moon crests are unable to speak). Galaxia has members of Shadow Galactica collect the cats off panel and kill them to try and bring Usagi down further. It's unknown if she and the rest of the family were caught up in this or left alone. The cats also suffer from this as it's left unstated if they were revived along with rest of the cast.
  • Women Are Wiser: She tends to be more levelheaded and down-to-earth than her husband, who is prone to overreacting and jumping to conclusions. Their children somewhat invert this, though. Averted in the live-action where she acts as silly and childish as her daughter, while Shingo is the most mature of the family.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Though more tempery than the standard, she is hinted to have Kenji-papa very whipped in The '90s anime.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has long dark blue and curly hair which she wear in a half loose ponytail and short bangs similar to her daughters.
  • Younger and Hipper: The live-action portrays her this way compared to other incarnations.

Voiced by: Yuuji Machi (original series), Mitsuaki Madono (Crystal) (JP), David Huband (DiC and Cloverway), Keith Silverstein (Viz) (EN), António Semedo (PT), Carlos Becerril (LatAm)
Portrayed in PGSM by: Ryuuta Tasaki

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: While in the manga is as handsome as any other male in the show, he is designed with a more mature looking appearance: Thick glasses, eyes with little shine and a simple comb over that lacks detail. In Crystal much effort is done to make him look younger and more bishie, complete with fashionable glasses, a trendy cut and a softer, youthful voice.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: Mild version: In the recently re-released manga, Kenji and Ikuko refer to each other as papa and mama (although sometimes Truth in Television as once they become parents couples may often find themselves calling each another "Mom" and "Dad" or some variation).
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Although Usagi's entire family was Demoted to Extra, her mother and brother still made token appearances later in the series, but her father's last appearance was only in the second season.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Black hair, black eyes.
  • Good Parents: He and Ikuko don't have a big role, but they are portrayed as typical loving parents to their children.
  • Happily Married: He and his wife are very happy and contented together and are never shown to have any issues in their marriage.
  • Henpecked Husband: In The '90s anime, by his own admission.
  • Heroic Bystander: In the Hot Springs Episode when the Tsukinos are on vacation, he attempts to defend his family against the Monster of the Week.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Live-action only. In the main series, the closest he gets to an appearance is when he's being spoken to over the phone, and when he shows up at last, he even has his face obscured by a camera at Usagi's wedding.
  • Lethal Chef: It's hinted that he's the one Usagi got her cooking skills from.
  • Like Parent, Like Spouse: Though he doesn't seem to like Mamoru, the two appear to be quite similar in many respects. In fact, Usagi considers her ideal man someone who is that much like her father.
  • Megane: An attractive man who always wears glasses. In Crystal, the creators made an effort to give him and his glasses a more stylish look than usual.
  • Men Can't Keep House: He tries to help out where he can, but things like cooking he cannot even do.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Averted. Usagi was reincarnated, so the Tsukinos are her biological family.
  • Not So Different: Initially suspicious of Mamoru, but some comments imply he was very similar in his youth. It might be that this is what actually bothers him.
  • Overprotective Dad: He nearly drives off the road on learning that Usagi is dating. And this is before he learns of the age difference.
  • Papa Wolf: The few times he was under attack, he immediately leapt to his family's defense.
  • Parental Substitute: To Chibiusa whenever she comes to the past.
  • Parent-Child Team: With Shingo in the VR center episode.
  • Salaryman: In most continuities, his job leaves him plenty time for his family, but in the live-action, he has such a busy, salaryman-like work life that he only even appears once.
  • Satellite Character: To his family. Not once does he play a significant role without interacting with them, and he seems to get the least character development. This may be why he was dropped partway through the second season and was largely absent from the live-action.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The manly to his son's sensitive.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Often wears a suit and tie, even at home, due to his salaryman lifestyle.
  • Shipper on Deck: He ships Umino and Usagi, even after Umino already has a girlfriend. Kenji is one of the only characters who likes Umino from the start and thinks Umino's a better match for his daughter than Mamoru.
  • Sleeping Single: He and his wife sleep in separate beds.
  • Standard '50s Father: Doesn't display all the standard traits, but is one nonetheless.
  • Unnamed Parent: Canadian dubs only, where he is merely identified as "Serena's dad".
  • Weight Woe: In one of the short stories in the manga (when Usagi and Chibi-Usa get cavities), Kenji is saddened to learn he's been gaining weight from his wife's cooking.

Other families of the Sailor Guardians

    General 

    Dr. Saeko Mizuno 

Dr. Saeko Mizuno

Portrayed in PGSM by: Mariko Tsutsui

  • Amicable Exes: She seems to bear no ill feelings toward her ex-husband, but this has never stopped Ami herself from angsting about it.
  • Education Mama: In most versions, Ami focues on studies and aspires to be a doctor for reasons beyond this, but in the live-action, it is mainly out of pressure from Saeko.
  • Good Parents: She may not have much time for Ami, but in what time she does have, she tries to be the best mother she can.
  • Invisible Parents: Spent three whole arcs as The Ghost in the manga until she finally pops up early in Super S. In the anime, we only see her back in the OP for the Super S movie. Averted in the live-action, which only covers the first arc but includes her as a character. She also pops up for a single panel of the Sailor V manga talking to Ami, who's merely there to fill a foreshadowing cameo quota.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Being a short-haired career-oriented doctor, she is implied to have had this relationship with her artist ex-husband.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Never got a first name in the anime or manga, but the live-action gives her first name as Saeko.
  • Nice Girl: When she finally shows up in the manga, she appears to be a very pleasant woman, unsurprising given her job of caring for people's well-being.
  • Non-Idle Rich: She is fairly wealthy, yet she still works full-time.
  • The Ojou: Older version. She's at least in her thirties, but has the wealth, wisdom and ladylike mannerisms that come with the role.
  • Parents as People: She truly cares for Ami, lamenting how her work kept her away from her girl. Ami might be a Lonely Rich Kid but she generally doesn't hold it against her mom, and it's because of Mizuno-sensei's example that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Occasionally sports a pair in the live-action.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: When she finally does appear, she looks like an older version of Ami.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: It's her job that keeps her so busy that she has little time for Ami. Saeko does wish they had more time for each other, but her commitment to long work hours makes this hard.
  • Workaholic: Her devotion to her job is the main reason why she rarely appears and has so little time for her daughter.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Like mother, like daughter.

    Rei's Grandfather 

Rei's Grandfather

Voiced by: Tomomichi Nishimura (JP), David Fraser and John Stocker (DiC and Cloverway), Michael Sorich (Viz) (EN), Rogério Jacques (PT), Herman López and later Jesús Colin (LatAm)

  • Adaptation Distillation: Rei's grandfather is an entirely different character in the manga, compared to The '90s anime. In the manga he's a slightly younger grandfather, taller, and when he is in a story he offers key insight to Rei's history and personality, and also suggests that he knows she's destined to do great things in some way, but not at that shrine.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: He is portrayed as tall and rather attractive in the manga. The anime on the other hand made him short and bald.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • Ascended Extra: Somewhat, early in The '90s anime.
  • Badass Normal: After losing his Rainbow Crystal, he's just another old monk, but he manages to go toe-to-toe with a Droid even so. He doesn't win, of course, but he gets a decent showing.
  • Badass Preacher: He's a Shinto priest who faces off Zoicite and lives through falling off a roof.
  • Bald of Awesome: In The '90s anime, he's bald, and as described above, he lets his awesomeness show when Zoicite attacks him.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: When he's attacked by Zoicite in The '90s anime, this tiny and apparently feeble old man fends him off at first.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The little to Yuuichirou's big.
  • Bi the Way: Rei remarks at one point while complaining about his antics that "He'll hit on anyone regardless of gender".
  • Dirty Old Man: The '90s anime only. He keeps embarrassing Rei whenever he tries to pick up girls and convince them to become Mikos at Hikawa Jinja.
  • Dirty Old Monk: He's definitely not above making lewd remarks towards his granddaughter's friends, among others.
  • Enemy Within: Jiji, one of the Seven Great Youma.
  • Invisible Grandparent:
    • In the live-action, possibly. It's not certain he exists in this continuity, though if he doesn't, that begs the question of who is Rei's guardian and the shrine's priest.
    • In Sailor Moon Crystal, he is sometimes named by his granddaughter and/or her friends, but so far he hasn't appeared on-screen.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: Provides the trope image.
  • Nice Guy: In the manga.
  • Parental Substitute: Raised Rei after his daughter/her mom died of illness.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: In the first anime, he is by far one of the shortest characters, but he's shown to be a pretty tough guy. Manages to fend off Zoisite's attack in episode 30 of the 90s anime. Zoisite is appropriately shocked by this: "I thought you were just an old man, but...you're good!" Oh, and he survived falling off the shrine roof.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: In the anime.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Implied in the manga. Watching Rei grow up and from the way she instinctively interacted with Phobos and Deimos, he understands that Rei has some kind of grand destiny ahead of her that doesn't involve him or the shrine.
  • Shrines and Temples: He is the priest of his own Shinto shrine where he and his granddaughter live.
  • Those Two Guys: With Yuuichirou, in The '90s anime.
  • Trickster Mentor: To Yuuichirou, in The '90s anime.
  • Zigzag Paper Tassel: The kind on rods can be found at his shrine. While his granddaughter uses them for fire readings, he uses them for more comedic scenes.

    Takashi and Risa Hino 

Takashi and Risa Hino

Takashi portrayed in PGSM by: Takeshi Masu

  • Death by Origin Story: Mrs. Hino died years before the first act of the series takes place.
  • Disappeared Dad/Missing Mom: Risa died of her illness when Rei was little, after which Takashi more or less abandoned their daughter in the care of his father-in-law and doesn't involve himself in her life more than once a year.
  • Ill Girl: In Rei's early childhood, Mrs. Hino suffered from some unspecified illness that claimed her life.
  • Invisible Parents: Anime and manga, though we see an image of Mrs. Hino in the manga. Averted in the live-action, though again Mrs. Hino only appears in a photograph.
  • Jerkass: Mr. Hino is so emotionally distanced from his Ill Girl wife and his daughter due to his work as a high-class politician, that he doesn't visit the first one single time during her lethal illness, and afterwards he doesn't meet up with the latter unless it's her birthday because she cannot forgive him for his treatment of his dying wife.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The live-action gives their first names as Takashi and Risa. Neither the source material nor the other versions of the series gives their first names as anything.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Rei's mom looked like an older Rei, if the manga's to be believed.

    Mr. and Mrs. Aino 

Mr. and Mrs. Aino


  • Closet Geek: In one chapter, Mrs. Aino tells Minako to stop playing a video game and go study. Then after she leaves, she and her husband start playing it.
  • Education Mama: Mrs. Aino appears to be even more nagging Ikuko, which Minako claims to dislike about her, and the two seem to have an unstable relationship.
  • Good Parents: Word of God says that they are this way, though in Mrs. Aino's case it seems like an Informed Attribute from the way she acts toward Minako.
  • House Wife: Mrs. Aino.
  • Invisible Parents: They do exist, but they only actually appear in Codename: Sailor V.
  • Jerkass: Mrs. Aino supposedly loves her daughter, but all she ever does is berate her flaws and mistakes, yell at her and make her life difficult. She also calls her husband unsuccessful while he's there to hear it.
  • Living Prop: Mr. Aino. We know next to nothing about him.
  • Megane: Mr. Aino.
  • Nuclear Family: With their daughter Minako.
  • Only Sane Man: Given the way Mrs. Aino and Minako behave, especially towards each other, Mr. Aino is probably the most rational person in the house.
  • Parents in Distress. In Codename: Sailor V, Mrs. Aino was sometimes a Dark Agency victim.
  • Quit Your Whining: Mrs. Aino whenever Minako complains about having to study.
  • Salaryman: Mr. Aino is a fairly average salaryman, which is why his wife calls him unsuccessful.

Keiko Tomoe

Voiced by: Shino Kakinuma (Crystal) (JP)

  • Death by Origin Story: Died in the same fire that seriously injured Hotaru when she was younger.
  • Missing Mom: Just like Rei and Makoto's mothers, she died years before her daughter first appears, so she only appears in a flashback.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Due to flashbacks, photographs and supplementary materials, we know that she and Hotaru look very much alike.
  • Unnamed Parent: Averted, unlike any of the Inners' families. She and her husband Souichi are the only parents outside of the Tsukino family whose name comes from the source material.

Voiced by: Shino Kakinuma (original series), Satomi Sato (Crystal) (JP), Mary Long (DiC and Cloverway), Danielle Judovits (under Danielle Nicole) (Viz) (EN), Cristina Camargo (LatAm), Cristina Cavalinhos (PT)
Portrayed in PGSM by: Chieco Kawabe

Usagi's original friend from her junior high school who is friendly, sweet and always by Usagi's side. She is featured more in the '90s anime than in the manga, given new character arcs that weren't in the manga, such as falling in love with Nephrite. She is also very popular in school with the students because her mother owns a jewellery shop, but her friendship with Usagi drifts away and becomes closer friends with Umino, before being written out of the story completely.


  • Academic Athlete: According to Usagi, she is smart (known to get above-average grades in school) and she also seems to have some athletic ability. The original anime shows playing tennis with her Cool Big Sis Rui, but the albums say that volleyball is her sport of choice.
  • Accent Adaptation: Her original English dub counterpart "Molly" has a thick New York accent.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: The dynamic with Nephrite and Naru in The '90s anime. Naru knows he isn't a good person and is aware that he has tried to use her, particularly since he tells her as much. Yet she admits to a worried Usagi that she can't help loving him. Then Nephrite turns out to not be a monster... only to die in her arms.
  • Ascended Extra: In the first season of the '90s anime and the live-action, she has a bigger role than in the manga.
  • Badass Normal: Despite how often she gets targeted by the villains, Naru has quite a number of achievements listed in the "Moments of Awesome" page.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead to Usagi's blonde and Umino's brunet.
  • Break the Cutie: The deal with Nephrite sends her into an Heroic BSoD and it takes her a while to get better.
  • The Cameo: In the manga and Crystal, after the end of the Dark Kingdom arc, her appearances tended to be minor cameos.
  • Damsel in Distress: She needs to be saved from a Monster of the Week attack fairly regularly.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the end of the Alien arc of season R. And she and Umino were still luckier than Yumiko and Kuri, who never made it past the original series. Averted in the live-action. It's as if she knew that she was gonna be replaced as Usagi's BFF and struggled not to let that happen.
  • Designated Victim: She always seems to attract a Monster of the Week within minutes of appearing on screen, probably because she is one of Usagi's only non-superpowered friends. The very first episode of Sailor Moon R even had Luna and Artemis Breaking the Fourth Wall to comment on the frequency of her being attacked by monsters.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Lemons. Thanks to the Nakayoshi Anime Albums, she and Haruna are the only civilians who get the same level of All There in the Manual stats as the heroines.
  • Expy: Of Hikaru from Codename: Sailor V. Both are the Muggle Best Friend of the main character.
  • Fangirl: In the live-action, just like many othe girls, she is one of Idol Singer Minako Aino.
  • Fiery Redhead: Subverted, she's more of The Cutie, though she did have two or three moments.
  • Four-Girl Ensemble: With Usagi, Yumiko and Kuri early on. She appears to be the wisest and most admirable one of the group.
  • From Dress to Dressing: Provides the trope image. After Nephrite is attacked in the '90s anime, she uses a piece of her pajamas to make a bandage for him. After he dies and disappears, she keeps the bandage until giving it to Umino, symbolizing how she is moving on to him.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: She's mostly the girly girl to Usagi's tomboy, but also has some tomboyish traits like playing tennis and occasional Tsundere moments.
  • Go Through Me: Usagi once tried to use her tiara attack against Nephrite but had to stop the attack when Naru put herself between them because of her love for him.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hairbow, especially in her school uniform. In the original anime, it was usually green but sometimes changed colors (like the red one in the above 90s anime picture) and it becomes blue in Crystal.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes through a bit of one in episode 22 because he shows her both affection and coldness and doesn't know whether or not his feelings are genuine.
  • Heroic Bystander: In both the first series and S, trying to get the energy-sucking plant out of Nephrite despite being affected by them herself and then trying to protect Umino from a Monster of the Week which was after his Pure Heart.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Usagi, before she gets demoted to extra.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: In the seventh episode of the original anime, she and Usagi sing the theme song, but are badly off-key.
  • Human Shield: Tries to act like one for Nephrite when Sailor Moon tries to attack him.
  • The Idiot from Osaka: Averted; she's generally well-adjusted and levelheaded, especially when compared to Usagi.
  • Kansai Regional Accent: Lampshaded by her last name. It becomes a Brooklyn accent in the original English dub.
  • The Lancer: To Usagi at the start, since she is initially her closest friend and foil.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Doesn't know of Usagi's identity as Sailor Moon, though she may have become aware of it in the R season. At the very least, she knows she is part of something important and that Usagi doesn't want Naru to ask what. Which Naru accepts.
  • Morality Pet: In the '90s anime, she becomes one for Nephrite, triggering his Redemption Equals Death.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Usagi.
  • Nice Girl: She is very sweet, kind and caring to all of her friends.
  • Official Couple: In the '90s anime with Umino, once they get their Relationship Upgrade.
  • Only Sane Woman: Seems to be the most normal and well-adjusted member of her social circle. It's not that hard to be this when your two closest friends are Cloudcuckoolanders.
  • Orange/Blue Contrast: Whether it's her orange hair contrasting against her eyes, bow and school uniform or her casual clothes with an orange top against a blue skirt and leggings, this is her color combination most of the time.
  • Out of Focus: Pretty much all the civilian cast went this route, but Naru probably got hit the hardest. In the early episodes of the first anime, she was a semi-major character, as Usagi's best friend, but by the second season, she almost disappeared once Usagi started hanging out with the Sailor Guardians and she lost her importance.
  • Plucky Girl: Becomes one whenever things get serious about her friends, even if it means she might get hurt. And since Naru is a muggle, it's all the more epic when she does it. For example, she refuses to back down from her Cool Big Sis Rui the tennis player when Rui's acting all aggressive and threatening from Nephrite's spell.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Worn as her casual clothes in the '90s anime.
  • Say My Name: Cries out Nephrite's name as he dies in episode 24 .
  • Second Love: For Umino once he gets over his unrequited crush on Usagi, who was also her second love after what happened to Nephrite.
  • Secret Keeper: Learns Usagi's identity as Sailor Moon in the live-action. In Crystal, it's all but stated that she knows it and the Sailor Senshi know she knows, as Mamoru tells them to deal with a Daimon in her presence.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: It is heavily implied during R/the Black Moon arc that Naru had figured out Usagi's identity as Sailor Moon since she knows that Usagi is part of something unusual and important, but that Usagi doesn't want her to ask about it, so she complies as to not put pressure on her.
  • Significant Birth Date: She was born on New Year's Day. Contrast Usagi who was born midway through the year.
  • Social Circle Filler: In the manga and Crystal. Less so in the '90s anime and the live-action where her role is increased and lengthened.
  • Spoiled Sweet: According to the first episode of Crystal, Naru is intelligent, popular, and has wealthy parents, and she's nice and down to Earth.
  • Those Two Guys: She and Umino become this after the other Sailor Guardians start showing up.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly girl to Usagi's tomboy, despite Usagi not being that boyish.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Stewed food, according to the Nakayoshi Anime Albums.
  • True Blue Femininity: In the first anime, she is no more or less likely to wear blue than any average teen (she only wears it often because of her school uniform), but Crystal settled on a blue hairbow for her rather than switching colors all the time.
  • Tsundere: Very light Type B, towards Umino after they become a couple.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Usagi and Umino before Usagi stops hanging out with them.
  • Unexplained Accent: It's never clear why a girl who lives in Tokyo would have a New York accent.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Being best friends with Sailor Moon and a victim or witness of so many attacks, she has become this regarding the Sailor Guardians and youma.
  • Weirdness Magnet: She is the victim of more enemy attacks than any other civilian. This was enough to earn a few Fan Nicknames like "the Official Energy Source of the Negaverse".

Gurio Umino

Click to see him in the 90s anime 
Voiced by: Keiichi Nanba (original series), Daiki Yamashita (Crystal) (JP), Roland Parliament (DiC and Cloverway), Ben Diskin (Viz) (EN), Isabel Wolmar (PT), Genaro Vásquez (LatAm

He's the tousle-haired friend of Usagi and Naru who is a student at their junior high school. He is a bespectacled nerd who is a goofball and a clever student with excellent grades. He nursed a crush on Usagi at first, and tried several ways to impress her (such as memorably trying to be a bad boy), but then grew out of it much later.


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: While still the short guy with Spiky Hair and Opaque Nerd Glasses, his face shape and haircut look more akin to the standard character designs of the other characters than to the more cartoonish, round-faced messy-haired kid he is in the manga and 90's anime.
  • Adorkable: His nerdy-like behaviour and his deep analyzing on newcomers as well as embarrassing Naru with his public declarations of his love for her when they start to date qualify for this.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Both anime series give him brown hair. It's blonde in the manga.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • Ascended Extra: Like Naru, his role is somewhat bigger in the '90s anime.
  • Beautiful All Along: In the manga the Sailor Senshi wonder if this trope would apply to Umino if he removed his specs, complete with a Bishōnen Umino Imagine Spot. According to Naoko Takeuchi, the trope does indeed apply to Umino too.
  • Bishōnen: Apparently, Umino is a handsome young man when he takes off his glasses. You wouldn't believe he can remove them, seeming how it's like they're stuck to his face.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The brunet to Usagi's blonde and Naru's redhead.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The second episode of the original anime had a youma disguised as a fortune teller cast a spell on him that makes him go crazy with love and do things even he wouldn't dare do.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has brown hair in both anime series and is a brainy nerd.
  • Butt-Monkey: His friends and classmates tend to treat him this way in earlier episodes because they find him so annoying.
  • The Cameo: In the manga and Crystal, after the end of the Dark Kingdom arc, his appearances tended to be minor cameos.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: At least before he gets a girlfriend. He fantasizes about the women in his life, is not above hitting on them, but seems to genuinely care about them and wouldn't hurt them on purpose. The only time he ever crosses a line is the skirt-flipping incident with Haruna and that only happened while he was under an evil spell.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Is undoubtedly the strangest of Usagi's non-Sailor friends. He says and does some pretty odd things, like describing getting his hand caught in a leather purse as him being bitten by an alligator.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: His attempt at imitating Tuxedo Mask. It counts because his Opaque Nerd Glasses cover his eyes the same way as any mask would.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: After he starts dating Naru, he acts this way about her to a mild extent.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may act like a goofy Cloudcuckoolander in his everyday life, but when the chips are down, he will do anything to protect the one he loves.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ever since the end of the first season/first episodes of R.
  • Distressed Dude: Is one of the victims of the week in the third season targeted for his Pure Heart Crystal.
  • Ditzy Genius: Gets almost perfect grades in school without really trying, yet when it comes to anything outside of school, he rarely shows any common sense.
  • Diving Save: Does this for Naru in episode 26 of the first season, then jumps in the way to protect her again in S (after which she gets in the way, trying to protect him).
  • Dogged Nice Guy: For Usagi. By the time he falls for Naru though, he drops the most annoying traits.
  • Dragged into Drag: By Naru in episode 7 of the '90s anime.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Parodied in Super S, when he attempts it with milk shakes. ChibiUsa's grossed out face says all.
  • Drunk on Milk: When Naru gets manipulated into dating Tiger's Eye, he tries this with a bunch of milkshakes. Chibi-Usa is grossed out and lampshades the whole thing, even pointing out that typically, people drown their sorrows on sake.
  • Expy: In the forerunner series, Codename: Sailor V, Minako had an otaku pal named Amano who is identical to him, though Amano is much more proactive and able to aide Sailor V on several occasions.
  • Extraverted Nerd: Indubitably a nerd, but very outgoing and talkative with shades of the Casanova Wannabe (although this aspect disappears after he gets a girlfriend).
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Early on, the girls only tolerate his annoying ways, though they let him hang around with them anyway. In the '90s anime, they warm up to him a little once he starts dating Naru. Played straight in the Manga and Crystal, every time he shows up onscreen has at least one person getting angry at his mere presence.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: After Usagi sees how attractive Princess D is without her glasses, she wonders (correctly) if the same would hold true for Umino.
  • Gossipy Hens: Male version. He'll often gossip along with his female friends about new arrivals and events in town.
  • Heroic Bystander: In both the first series and S, he tries to defend Naru from a Monster of the Week. The second time, the monster was specifically targeting him.
  • Heroic Wannabe: Tries to emulate Tuxedo Mask by dressing like him and calling himself Tuxedo Umino Mask in order to protect Naru. While he's no match for the monster, you gotta admire his spirit about it.
  • Innocently Insensitive: For example, when Usagi and Umino went to visit Naru after Nephrite's death, Umino casually said, "I thought you didn't go to school because you were sick, but I see it was just heartbreak," resulting in Usagi hitting him. Once they gone out, he didn't take (or didn't seem anyway) into consideration Naru's feelings. Later on however, he hinted to have felt bad because of this trope. Thanks to Character Development, he became a bit less of this trope later on. In the same scene, he tried to comfort Naru ... by mentioning Nephrite's disappearance.
  • Insufferable Genius: One of the top students in his class, he isn't above flaunting his grades to his friends.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: A nerdy/bespectacled/non-athletic guy whose close friends all seem to be girls. He's into things like gossip, doesn't hide his romantic notions and at one point in the '90s anime he even dons a pink dress.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: He is an academic genius, but he often acts like he also knows a lot more outside of school than he really does, and he tries to keep his friends up to date about things whether they want to hear it or not.
  • Last-Name Basis: Umino is his surname, but that's what everyone calls him.
  • Messy Hair: Not like bedhead-messy, but his hair doesn't seem to lay down.
  • Mr. Exposition: Early on, he would often be the one to talk about new events, people and places that would turn out to be related to the adventure of the week.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To a lesser extent than Naru, but he does sometimes share this role with her for Usagi.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • When Viz redubbed episode 7, while crossdressing, Umino talks like DiC's "Molly", Brooklyn accent and all.
    • In the other episode 7 (Crystal), when Umino tells Usagi, Ami, and Makoto that he was going to catch Sailor Moon, he's blacked out into a silhouette, leaving only his eyes and mouth glowing yellow. This is much like how Professor Souichi Tomoe appeared in the third season of the first Sailor Moon series.
  • Negated Moment of Awesome: The time where he tries to protect Naru as Tuxedo Melvin, he gets tossed aside easily by the monster.
  • Nerd Glasses: Ones that engulf the entire top-half of his face.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: Although he is a more stereotypical nerd, his glasses hide just how attractive he really is.
  • Nice Guy: His Innocently Insensitive moments aside, Umino is generally a very decent guy.
  • Official Couple: In the '90s anime with Naru, once they get their Relationship Upgrade.
  • The One Guy: Of Usagi's circle of friends at the start of the series.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: Ones that engulf the entire top-half of his face.
  • Otaku: He's called this several times by other characters.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Provides much of the humor in Usagi's everyday life due to his nerdiness, cloudcuckoolander tendencies and the way he annoys his friends, at least during the first season. Because he was Demoted to Extra, the role of comic relief later shifted more to characters like Minako and Chibi-Usa.
  • Poor Man's Substitute: In-Universe in episode 32 of season 1 when he misinterprets Usagi's advice and appears as "Tuxedo Umino Mask" to protect Naru from the youma. He is the least efficient "super hero" in the world and gets immediately be beaten up within seconds without accomplishing anything.
  • Second Love: For Naru, who also was his second love, since Umino had a crush on Usagi at first.
  • Secret Keeper: In Crystal it's all but stated that he knows who Sailor Senshi are and they know he knows, as Mamoru tells them to deal with a Daimon in his presence. How and when he found out remains unknown.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: In the manga, the first few acts are a bit more humorous than the rest of the series. Umino, who provides much of the comic relief in the franchise, is practically nonexistent for the rest of the manga.
  • The Smart Guy: Of his group of friends. At least in terms of schoolwork where he's one of the top students in their class. Outside of school, though, he's a major subversion.
  • Social Circle Filler: Like Naru, he ends up being this in the manga and Crystal.
  • Sweetheart Sipping: Usagi, his original crush, does this with him at one point in the first season.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: The "hot for teacher" one-sided variant. He was under a spell at the time, but goes through a moment of this towards Haruna and even flips her skirt. Two episodes later, the photos he took at a gym suggest that it might hold true even when he isn't being brainwashed.
  • Teen Genius: So much that he is unhappy when he only gets a 95 on a test.
  • Those Two Guys: He and Naru become this after the other Sailor Guardians start showing up.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He starts out as an Innocently Insensitive Casanova Wannabe, but gradually outgrew this after Nephrite died and Naru started dating him and he became more thoughtful and less annoying toward others.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Usagi and Naru before Usagi stops hanging out with them.
  • Unfazed Everyman: To a somewhat lesser extent than Naru, but like she, he's gotten accustomed to Sailor Guardian-related weirdness.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With the girls in his class. He's a little Innocently Insensitive to them and they don't try to hide how annoying they think he is, but they still seem to consider each other friends.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Tomoko Otakara


  • Adapted Out: Averted in all adaptations (even the musicals), making her the only civilian to appear in every version of the series.
  • Ascended Extra: When you think about it, she had a much bigger role early in The '90s anime than in the manga. Then after the Alien Arc of R, she was Put on a Bus. She has a valid reason for disappearing once the girls moved on to 9th grade.
  • Brainy Brunette: Light brown in the Crystal anime and she is a teacher, after all.
  • Butt-Monkey: Frequently laments her Christmas Cake status. And even beyond that, there's the incident where she thinks she is Defiled Forever.
  • Christmas Cake: And how. She's in a hurry to find a husband, which makes her an easy target for the Dark Kingdom.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She has her moments in the live-action.
  • Cool Teacher: She's this in the live-action series, albeit a bit downplayed; she is much more laid-back and friendly, but will assign After-School Cleaning Duty if necessary.
  • Damsel in Distress: Like Naru, she was a frequent victim of attacks by the Dark Kingdom during the first season.
  • Defiled Forever: This is what she believes when the second episode of The '90s anime had Umino (under a monster's influence) flip her skirt up revealing her smiley face panties. She started crying that she wouldn't be able to get married now.
  • Designated Victim: A frequent youma victim alongside Naru. Her obsession with finding a husband made her an easy target.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Snapping turtle. Thanks to the Nakayoshi Anime Albums, she and Naru are the only civilians who get the same level of All There in the Manual stats as the heroines.
  • Fiery Redhead: Has auburn hair in the 90s anime with a temper to match.
  • First-Name Basis: Her students call her Haruna-sensei. The first English dub switched it to make Haruna her last name, though.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: The above incident revealed a smiley face on it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Very strict and known to blow her top if her students do poorly or break rules, but cares for all of them and just wants them to succeed.
  • Panty Shot: See Defiled Forever.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Wears pink pretty often, reflecting her vivid personality, romantic side and traditionally feminine vocation.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Like several other female characters, her hair is waist-length or longer.
  • Sensei-chan: Frequently acts young for her age and engages in doing rather childish things.
  • Stern Teacher: Was very exigent towards Usagi, but genuinely cared for her and her friends.
  • Temporal Theme Naming: Meta-example. Naoko Takeuchi's other series Codename: Sailor V, The Cherry Project and P.Q. Angels have characters named Natsuna Sakurada, Akina Sakurada and Fuyuna Sakurada. Collectively, they are named after the four seasons.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Peaches, according to the Nakayoshi Anime Albums.
  • Two-Teacher School: She's basically the one teacher we get to meet during her run in the series.

Yumiko and Kuri

Yumiko on the left, Kuri on the right
Yumiko voiced by: Mayumi Seto and Chieko Nanba (original series), Hyang-Ri Kim (Crystal) (JP), Stephanie Morgenstern (DiC and Cloverway), Michelle Ruff (Viz) (EN)
Kuri voiced by: Masami Kamiyama and Etsuko Nishimoto (original series), Yukiko Morashita (Crystal) (JP), Katie Griffin (DiC and Cloverway), Julie Ann Taylor (Viz) (EN)


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Downplayed, but in their first two incarnations, they were both just generically pretty girls, while Crystal plays up their attractiveness a little by simply putting more detail into their design.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In Crystal, Kuri's hair is sort of purplish-brown.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Like many other people, they assume that Ami is an Insufferable Genius, Rei is a freak to avoid and Makoto is a dangerous troublemaker before Usagi befriends them, and so take an initial dislike to them.
  • Bit Character: Never featured majorly, never even got A Day in the Limelight, so their roles are often limited to just one or two scenes.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Their act in a talent show in one episode.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Kuri has much shorter hair than her friends. Crystal makes her hairstyle look even more boyish than usual.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Even earlier than most other supporting characters. Though in Crystal, they appear as late as the final Dark Kingdom episode.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Kuri in Crystal.
  • Cute Bookworm: Kuri. When she's not hanging out with her friends for their typical girl activities, she's busy hitting the books and cramming for school.
  • The Dividual: In The '90s anime. While they can appear separately, they seem to only differ visually. Averted in the manga and Crystal where they are still Those Two Guys but are treated as individuals with their own personalities.
  • Four-Girl Ensemble: With Usagi and Naru early on. Kuri's the somewhat mannish one, while Yumiko's more traditionally pretty and feminine.
  • Girliness Upgrade: In The '90s anime, Kuri got a slightly girlier look and virtually the same personality as Yumiko. Crystal gave her back her manga character.
  • Gossipy Hens: Mainly Yumiko. Though in anime, Kuri has her moments.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With each other. They are best friends who spend most of their time together.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: They are initially suspicious and unaccepting of the Sailor Guardians, but they genuinely believe the rumors about them and don't want their friends to have any trouble from them. They also only act this way until people get to know the Guardians.
  • Loners Are Freaks: They seem to genuinely believe this, as they initially critical and suspicious of Ami, Rei and Makoto. Maybe this is why the two are rarely separated.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: Yumiko's well-below-shoulder-length hair shows this.
  • Ms. Exposition: On occasions when Umino's not doling out info on anything new in town, one of them is likely to do it.
  • Only One Name: Their surnames are never given.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Yumiko in The '90s anime. Her only appearance out of her school fuku is an all-pink outfit.
  • The Smart Guy: Kuri somewhat shares the role with Umino in their group, since she seems to care more about her grades than the other girls do.
  • Social Circle Filler: They hang out regularly with Usagi until the other Sailors show up and are then promptly forgotten.
  • Those Two Guys: To Usagi, Naru and Umino, before Naru and Umino became this themselves.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Yumiko has long hair, wears girly outfits, acts like a gossipy teen and dreams of being a bride. Kuri has Boyish Short Hair, is more bookish and studious than Yumiko (she even goes to Cram School with Ami) and dresses somewhat more boyishly when out of school uniform.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Kuri isn't that masculine, just more so than Naru or Yumiko, and she still shares their love for some girly things like sparkly jewelry.
  • True Blue Femininity: Kuri in the first anime (as part of her Girliness Upgrade), Yumiko in the second (to show she's the Girly Girl of the two). Technically, their whole class wears blue because of the uniform (bright blue for the girls, dark blue for the boys), but here, it extends to their street clothes.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Kuri has purple hair in Crystal.

    Usagi's Fat Friend 

"Usagi's Fat Friend"

Voiced by: Mayumi Seto (JP), Kathy Laskey (DiC), Colleen O'Shaughnessey (Viz) (EN), Belinda Martinez (LatAm)


  • Bit Character: Even more so than Yumiko and Kuri. She doesn't even have a proper name! The credits listed her as "Usagi's Fat Friend".
  • Canon Foreigner: Created specifically for The '90s anime.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: And it means she probably won’t every appear again because she was only created for the first adaptation. Though unlike Yumiko or Kuri, she wasn't quite limited to the first season; her last appearance is a brief crowd scene cameo in the second season premier.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Averted in the Canadian dub.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: She's Usagi's friend and she's fat.
  • Fat Girl: She's not that much fatter than the rest of the girls, but still noticeably so and is a bit insecure about it. She seems to have been designed that way because her debut episode revolved around Weight Woe.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Well, named by the dub to be precise. The original English dub named her "Loraine".
  • No Name Given: Not even the credits give her one. Except in some dubs, Usagi's Fat Friend is all she is ever known as.
  • Social Circle Filler: Along with Yumiko and Kuri, she only serves as Usagi's friend until her teammates come along.
  • Those Two Guys: With a nameless friend and classmate of hers, Usagi's and Naru's (called Brandy in the DiC dubs) in a few appearances.
  • Weight Woe: Is aware that she's chubbier than her friends and, while not terribly upset, still expresses a desire to lose weight.

    Usagi's other friend 

Usagi's other friend

Voiced by: Naoko Nakamura (JP); Stephanie Morgenstern (DiC), Julie Ann Taylor (Viz) (EN)


  • Canon Foreigner: Didn't appear in the manga.
  • Living Prop: She makes a number of appearances, but we don't know anything about her, not even her name. She's just…there.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Like her friend "Loraine", she is Brandy in the DiC dub.
  • No Name Given: Even worse than Usagi's fat friend, the series doesn't give fans anything to call her.
  • The Quiet One: Proably the least talkative of Usagi's non-Senshi friends.
  • Social Circle Filler: Emphasis on the word filler. All she does is add another person to the group.
  • Those Two Guys: With Usagi's fat friend in a few appearances.

The Furuhatas

    General 
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Unazuki is the foolish to Motoki's responsible, at least when it comes to school work. They both do their jobs responsibly, though.
  • Invisible Parents: Their parents own the Crown, but we never see them or even learn anything about them other than that they exist.
  • Local Hangout: The Furuhata family business of the Game Center Crown/Crown Fruits Parlor serves this role, and much of the Furuhatas' role revolves around this fact.
  • Sibling Team: A brother and sister who run the Crown together.

Portrayed in PGSM by: Masaya Kikawada

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original anime, he's a nice but kind of bland and flat character. In the live-action, he's a much goofier guy who kind of replaces the absent Umino as the Plucky Comic Relief of civilian life.
  • Adorkable: In the live-action.
  • Ascended Extra: A bit, in the live-action. He even gets to propose to Makoto in that continuity.
  • Beta Couple: With Makoto in the live-action. He and Reika are an Official Couple in other versions, but their relationship isn't prominent enough to be the beta couple of the series.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Usagi. When she's having a problem, she turns to him for advice (such as what to do about Naru falling in love with the enemy).
  • Bishōnen: Like many other guys in the series, he is one of these, resulting in several young women having crushes on him.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: In the recently re-released manga, Motoki's nickname is translated as 'bro'. This gets incredibly awkward later on, when Makoto refers to him as 'the bro at the Game Center.' Uhh....
  • Chick Magnet: Catches the affections of several girls including some of the Sailor Guardians, though he's generally oblivious to their crushes and is too devoted to his girlfriend to care.
  • Chubby Chaser: Somewhat. In the anime he told Usagi he found chubby girls cute. She saw this as an excuse to stop dieting and go back to her regular eating habits, until Luna clarified that he said "chubby", not "fat".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In the live-action, he gets Umino's bumbling, quirky traits and spends much of his time staring at his pet turtle.
  • Composite Character: The live-action version of him appears to be a combination of Umino and the manga version of himself.
  • The Generic Guy: Even for a minor character, he gets hardly any Character Development and few distinct personality traits. Other than his job, being the object of the girls' affections and just being a Nice Guy, there isn't much to say about him. The live-action changes this a bit by merging his character with Umino's and fleshing him out some more.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: A Nice Guy who regularly wears an apron, looks like a Bishōnen, serves food and advice to his customers, and in the live-action he's an obsessive pet owner and the one who catch the bouquet at a wedding.
  • I Will Wait for You: When Reika decides to go to study in Africa, he decides to wait for her for as long as she is gone. The second time she leaves for ten years and he is still willing to wait.
  • Keet: The live-action portrays him this way. His best friend in the world is a pet turtle named Kamekichi, he always smiles and he doesn't quite know the meaning of subtlety.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Despite Makoto and Usagi's crushes on him, it is established that they are only younger sisters to him (except in the live-action, where Makoto is his love interest). Usagi becomes happy with this after she and Mamoru get together.
  • Long-Distance Relationship: With Reika. Even when she leaves Japan twice, Motoki promises to wait for her.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The feminine boy to Makoto's masculine girl in the live-action.
  • Men Can't Keep House: His apartment is in a terrible state.
  • Muggle Best Friend: In the live-action to Mamoru, as well as being Makoto's Muggle Love Interest.
  • Nice Guy: Easily one of the most decent and caring characters in the series. If someone he knows, like Usagi, has a problem, he's often the first to lend an ear and be supportive.
  • Non-Action Guy: Even by civilian standards. At least Umino, Kenji, Shingo, Yuuichirou and Rei's grandfather all have their moments of Badass Normal or Heroic Bystander, but he never involves himself in the action of enemy attacks at all.
  • Official Couple: With Reika in the anime and manga, or with Makoto in the live-action.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Live-action only; he's quite mature and serious in all other versions.
  • Satellite Character: Despite being one of the most frequently-seen civilians, he doesn't seem to get much character development beyond his relationships with his friends. Unlike his sister and girlfriend, he is never even targeted by the enemy.
  • Secret Keeper: In the manga and the live-action.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Mamoru's Manly Man.
  • They Do: He and Makoto in Special Act of the Live Action version.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Never got one in supplementary material, but in an episode of the first anime, he says his favorite food is hayashi rice.
  • Trash of the Titans: His apartment, in The '90s anime.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Reika and Setsuna in the manga.
  • Turtle Power: In the live-action, he has a pet turtle named Kamekichi and seems to be generally obsessed with them, owning lots of turtle-themed accessories and bonding with other turtle owners.

  • Ascended Extra: Slightly in the fourth season of The '90s anime where she appeared the most often, unlike other civilians who appeared less often later in the series.
  • Book Dumb: In the Materials collection, it is revealed that her grades are below average and she does not like to study.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Usagi. She's about a year older, making her around Haruka and Michiru's age, and Usagi likes her and seems to think she's pretty cool.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Look carefully in the third episode of Crystal. You can see her and Reika standing in the background.
  • Fiery Redhead: Like with Naru, it's usually averted, but again like with Naru, she has moments of this.
  • First Kiss: Her A Day in the Limelight episode, in the S series, was centered on how she and her boyfriend had not even kissed...
  • Genki Girl: She's very cheerful and light on her feet.
  • The Ghost: Her boyfriend. She mentions him several times, but we never see him or even learn his name.
  • Hair Decorations: Her yellow hair ribbon which she wears as a tie for her ponytail.
  • In-Series Nickname: Original English dubs only. Her name is Elizabeth, but she's also been called Lizzie for short.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Subverted in R. Mamoru once gave her a ride in his motorbike because she was late to a date with her boyfriend; Usagi saw them and thought Unazuki was his new girlfriend. Since those were his "It's Not You, It's Me" days, he tried to use it to his advantage so Usagi would get over him. It backfired. Horribly.
  • Muggle Best Friend: Sometimes played this role to the Sailor Guardians during the fourth season when several other muggle friends only appear once or twice.
  • Nice Girl: She's a very sweet, kind and friendly person pretty much all the time.
  • No Big Deal: In episode 134, Luna speaks in front of her. Despite the fact that she's not in the know, she doesn't seem to show any reaction to something as odd as a talking cat.
  • Relative Error: Subverted in her first appearance. Seeing Mamoru give her a ride on his motorcycle, Usagi asks hopefully and jealously if she is Mamoru's relative. She's not. She's actually Motoki's sister, but the end result works out the same way, as Unazuki assures Usagi that she's not Mamoru's girlfriend.
  • Remember the New Guy?: She's Motoki's little sister who works at her family's business where the Sailor Guardians hang out, yet she was never seen or alluded to in the first season, and Usagi inexplicably does not know who Unazuki is in her debut episode.
  • Sixth Ranger: Of the civilian cast. She is introduced during the Black Moon arc.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She always wears her hair up in a ponytail with two sidetails left hanging loose.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She's a Genki Girl with a tomboyish hairstyle, but works as a waitress and is a romantic dreamer. Her wardrobe ranges from pretty dresses to Shorttank outfits.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In The '90s anime, Reika is a brunette. In the materials collection, she has strawberry pink hair, but in further colored manga artwork, she's blonde.
  • Adapted Out: In the live-action.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Her work, in the anime. This is why she went to Africa to do field work as a university student.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: In her final anime appearance, she is revealed to enjoy horseback riding and briefly bonds with Chibiusa over a fondness for horses.
  • Art Shift: In The '90s anime, her eyes had a distinctively different appearance from the rest of the cast. That changed when she returned in season four.
  • Brainy Brunette: She's very intelligent and studies science at university, but only in the original anime does she have brown hair.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Usagi and the other girls.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Look carefully in the third episode of Crystal. You can see her and Unazuki standing in the background.
  • Enemy Within: Rikoukeidar, one of the Seven Great Youma.
  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: In the manga, Reika was really into gemstones, as she studies mineralogy at KO University. While she doesn't drape herself in jewels, she does wear rather stylish earrings and necklaces tastefully. A caption refers to her as a "high maintenance $6900 Versace queen."
  • Horse Jump: Spends much of her final anime appearance trying to pull this off on her horse before finally doing it at the end of the episode.
  • Hot Scientist: Studies science at university like Setsuna (though which branch of science Reika studies varies between continuities) and is very attractive even when she's wearing a lab coat.
  • Long-Distance Relationship: With Motoki. Even when she leaves Japan twice, Motoki promises to wait for her.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Setsuna, after they begin attending the same university.
  • Official Couple: With Motoki. Except in the live-action, where it's not certain she even exists.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Both the manga and Crystal depict her as wearing a lot of pink.
  • Put on a Bus: Twice
  • Rapunzel Hair: Like several other female characters, her hair is waist-length or longer.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: With Motoki and Setsuna in the manga.

  • Accent Adaptation: Besides his surfer-dude talk, the DiC dub gave him a vaguely Australian-sounding accent, although Cloverway made him sound more American.
  • Adorkable: Much of his time on screen is this. When he's not falling on his face, moping melodramatically (which often makes him fall on his face), he is trying his best to win Rei over or even saving her from a strange monster, with no such luck.
  • Badass Normal: One of the most badass normals in the series, due to him being so physically fit. In his case, it goes beyond just facing enemy attacks. Even most top athletes can't ski jump off a cliff and stop right where they land perfectly on their own two feet unharmed.
  • Badass Preacher: Well, badass preacher-in-training, but close enough.
  • The Big Guy: He is easily one of the most muscular and physical characters.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The big to Rei's grandfather's little.
  • Butt-Monkey: Rei treats him this way at times.
  • Canon Foreigner: Created specifically for The '90s anime.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: At his worst, he can act like one towards Rei.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He may be a Butt-Monkey who's not the most sensible or serious guy around, but when the shrine or Rei is in danger, watch out.
  • Declaration of Protection: Even if Rei does not become his girlfriend and she unknowingly to him has the powers to protect herself, he is willing to defend her just because he loves her and wants her to be safe.
  • Demoted to Extra: Mainly after Sailor Moon S.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Has been in love with Rei for quite some time, but though she cares for him, she treats him like a Butt-Monkey. Doesn't discourage him from trying, though.
  • Fearless Fool: He's brave, all right, but this leads him to do things a sensible person wouldn't even consider, like trying to defend Rei's honor without getting the facts first or jumping in front of a giant runaway snowball in an attempt to stop it.
  • Heroic Bystander: When Rei is attacked, he steps forward to defend her.
  • Hidden Eyes: Under his bangs.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He looks and acts like one - but he does cares for Rei selflessly, despite knowing she's not likely to be into him the way he wants, and so he protects her because that's his choice. He leaves it very clear to Kooan when she belittles him.
  • House Husband: Not a literal one (though he'd like to be), but he acts like one to Rei by taking care of most the domestic work like cleaning after he moves into the shrine, leaving her free to handle her Sailor duties.
  • Human Shield: Any time Rei is under attack, he tries to act like one to her. At one point, he even says he doesn't mind dying if it means he saves Rei.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Rei may be the one he pines for, but he seems willing to accept that she may not want him. As long as she's happy, it's good enough for him; that's how much he cares.
  • The Klutz: Zig-zagged. He does have several moments of clumsiness while working at the shrine or hanging around Rei, but at other times, he can be pretty graceful, like when he shows off his athletic skills. Possibly justified, since his love for Rei seems to make him klutz out.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: After seeing Rei with Haruka, whom he like so many others mistook for a man, he jumped to the conclusion that the two were dating.
  • Nice Guy: Most of the times when he's not is when he's trying to protect his friends.
  • Non-Idle Rich: Comes from a wealthy background but keeps steady employment, usually in jobs that are "beneath" him.
  • Perma-Stubble: Complete with Blinding Bangs. The scruffy appearance is possibly to hide his identity of being a rich kid so that he can step out of that shadow.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Often delivers a lot of the humor in the show due to his goofiness, occasional klutz attacks and hopeless love for Rei.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: A rugged, hunky, and athletic guy, he has no qualms about doing the cleaning and housekeeping chores at the shrine.
  • Secretly Wealthy: Is revealed to be the son of a very wealthy family. And mildly ashamed of it.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Delivers one to Koan when she thinks that he's only trying to shield Rei to impress her and win her over, saying that he's only trying to protect her be he wants to.
  • Starving Artist: In the original English dubs only, he describes himself as a struggling musician. It's more of an Informed Attribute, though. He comes from a rich family, and since he never was depicted as a musician in the Japanese version, nothing is seen to suggest that he can even play an instrument.
  • Surfer Dude: Talks like one in the original English-language dubs.
  • Those Two Guys: With Rei's grandfather.
  • Throwing Down the Gauntlet: When he mistakes Haruka for Rei's boyfriend and then sees her with her girlfriend, he is convinced that Haruka is cheating on Rei, so he decides to defend Rei's honor and challenges Haruka to a duel. Haruka is more than a little puzzled.
  • Unexplained Accent: Like Naru, his accent from the DiC dub seems a bit out of place in Tokyo.
  • Wild Hair: His shoulder-length hair is consistently rugged and unkempt.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Manga illustrations show her with pinkish or purple hair. In early 90's anime appearances, her hair was brown, but in the fourth season it became purple with no explanation, yet didn't match the manga. Her eyes also changed from a light blue to bright purple.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: Dresses as one and her family owns a Chinese restaurant.
  • Art Evolution: As with Shingo, Momoko visually ages a little over the course of her appearances. In R, she appears around six or seven like Chibi-Usa, while in S and Super S, she's taller and has a visible bustline. Her bangs and side strands also went from being straight to curly. These changes in her look match up with her manga appearance.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In an episode of the R season, when she's accidentally infused with Black Energy. Chibi-Usa manages to debrainwash her, though.
  • Cool Big Sis: Acts like this towards Chibi-Usa, even though they are technically in the same grade and Chibiusa is Really 700 Years Old.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Chibiusa.
  • Repetitive Name: Momoko Momohara.
  • Series Continuity Error: Her hair color is switched from brown to purple in Super S without any explanation, and her eyes go from being a light blue to an identical shade of purple.
  • Sixth Ranger: Of the civilian cast. She is introduced during the Black Moon arc.
  • Sudden Name Change: In the original English dub. Her dub name was originally Melissa, but later episodes were dubbed by a different company who used the name Melanie instead (Melly for short).
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple hair.

Ittou Asanuma

Voiced by: Kazuya Nakai (original series), Daisuke Sakaguchi (Crystal) (JP), Greg Felden (Viz) (EN) Irwin Daayán (LatAm, original series)

  • Ambiguously Bi: His idolization of Mamoru could easily be interpeted as a crush, but on the other hand, he also gets kissed by Makoto and doesn't complain about it.
  • Big Brother Worship: They're not actually related, but he really admires Mamoru, who is an upperclassman at his school.
  • Bishōnen: One of the youngest in the series, since he's roughly a year younger than the Inner Guardians.
  • Continuity Cameo: His single appearance in The '90s anime.
  • Demoted to Extra: He appears a number of times in the manga, beginning in the Black Moon arc, but only appears once very briefly in The '90s anime in the final season, and even then, his name only appears in the credits.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Towards Mamoru. He wants to be just like him, so he takes notes about everything Mamoru does.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Obsessed with science fiction and the paranormal, carries a notebook everywhere to take notes of whatever he sees, yet he looks like a bishie in sharp men's clothes.
  • Last-Name Basis: He's usually just called Asanuma.
  • Paranormal Investigation: He's a member of the Sci-Fi Club at his school, to which he reports any UFO sightings. In fact, after witnessing Mamoru healing himself and Luna talking to Usagi, he thinks that their group might be aliens.
  • Secret Keeper: In the manga, after he reveals to Makoto what he saw, she confesses the Sailor Guardians' identities to him and even kisses him on the forehead.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Has this relationship with Mamoru.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Often seen wearing the tie, jacket and dress shirt of his school uniform.
  • Sixth Ranger: Of the civilian cast. He is introduced during the Black Moon arc.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Averted. Like Ikuko Tsukino but unlike the rest of the civilian cast, he actually appeared as late as Stars.

  • Canon Foreigner: Created for two episodes of the original anime.
  • The Cutie: Sweet and pretty.
  • Dub Name Change: The English dubs kept her first name but changed her last name to Cassidy.
  • Lonely Doll Girl: While under Nephrite's spell, she turns into one and stays in her room doing nothing but making dolls.
  • Mistaken for Romance: Everyone around them keeps thinking she and Shingo are a couple and it's ship teased as much an episode can, but they don't call each other anything but friends. Shingo really hates it when people call them a couple and always denies it.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Shingo. She calls him her best friend, and she's definitely the same for him. They're ship teased, but we never see them dating.
  • Puppy Love: If one takes her relationship with Shingo as a budding romance (it's left kinda… ambiguous), it's this at best. They're only in the fifth grade.
  • Reclusive Artist: In-Universe, she briefly turns into one (specializing in dollmaking) when Nephrite puts her under his spell to build up her energy.
  • Ship Tease: Her interactions with Shingo are left up to viewers to decide. Platonic friends with a lot of affection or a couple that hasn't quite discovered the opposite sex yet?

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Princess D is blonde in Crystal. She was originally brunette in the earlier anime, as to possibly make her look like a female Umino. It is entirely possible that Naoko intended her to be blonde in the manga, however.
  • Adapted Out: Of the live-action, though they kept her storyline, replacing her with a rich non-royal girl named Yuka Sakuragi.
  • Beautiful All Along: Much like Umino, when she takes her glasses off…
  • Blind Without 'Em: When her glasses get knocked off, she can't see at all and quickly starts trying to find them.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Umino and his Sailor V equivalent Amano.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: It’s right there in her title.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: She turns out to be quite pretty without her glasses. It makes the girls wonder if the same is true for Umino.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: They even have the same spiral look as Umino's.
  • Ruritania: She is from one, which is simply referred to as D Country.

    Endo 

Endo

Voiced by: Hiroaki Miura (JP), Vic Mignogna (EN)


  • Adapted Out: Of everything except Crystal. In other adaptations, Mamoru actually is Motoki's best friend instead of impersonating him.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Motoki.
  • Megane: Only ever seen wearing his glasses.
  • Only One Name: As far as we know.
  • Otaku: Described as one by Reika.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the manga, we don't know if he's even alive after Endymion's actions, but in Crystal, he later is actually shown to be.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: In his first appearance, when Endymion sends him away to take his place, we never hear from him again, at least in the manga.

    Makoto's sempai 

Makoto's sempai


  • All Love Is Unrequited: Makoto was in love with him, but he didn't return her feelings. This is changed in the original English dub to him being her ex-boyfriend who broke up with her.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Mentioned dozens of times, but the only time he is actually seen in a flashback, the image is too blurry and shadowed to make him out clearly.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Didn't get a name in any Japanese version, but the original English dub of the 1990s anime named him Freddy.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: One of the reasons why he didn't love Makoto back was this. And he's not the only guy in the series who reacted to her affections this way. Poor Makoto.
  • No Name Given: The original English dub aside, he never got one. In the manga, Makoto does refer to a "Nichogi-sempai" from her past, but it's not made clear if this was the same sempai.
  • Running Gag: Is the basis for one in the original anime, in which Makoto says whatever boy she sees reminds her of him, even if they don't look like him at all. Contrast the manga, when he's only even mentioned once or twice.
  • Sempai/Kohai: His relationship with Makoto was this.
  • The Voiceless: When he does appear in flashbacks, he doesn't have any dialogue.
  • You're Not My Type: When he turned Makoto down, he told her that it was because tall, strong girls like she are not his type.

    Shinozaki 

Shinozaki

Voiced by: Yuusuke Numata (JP); Steven Bednarski (DiC), Todd Haberkorn (Viz) (EN)


  • A Friend in Need: Whatever happens, he and Makoto are there for each other, even in the worst of times. When Makoto's heart is broken, he comforts her. When Shinozaki is seriously injured and needs a transfusion, Makoto donates the blood herself.
  • Canon Foreigner: Just like countless other one-shot characters in the anime, he was created for an episode he appears in.
  • Dub Name Change: The DiC dubs change his name to Ken. This one ended up being a bit confusing, since dub fans often assigned Kenji (who didn't get a name in that dub) the English name Ken.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: He's supposed to be Makoto's best friend, but he only appears in one episode out of two hundred.
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Makoto.
  • Nice Guy: A very sweet and caring guy. Makoto is lucky to have him as a friend.
  • Only One Name: It's not really clear if Shinozaki is supposed to be his first name or his last name.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Makoto, his former schoolmate. When Usagi asks if he is her boyfriend, she denies it; their relationship is greater than that.
  • Ship Tease: Though they only see each other as best friends, there's certainly quite a bit of this, right down to sharing an Umbrella of Togetherness. In fact, when Usagi first finds out about him, she assumes he's Makoto's boyfriend.
  • Umbrella of Togetherness: A purely platonic one. When Makoto's sempai rejects her on a rainy day and she runs away, he shares his umbrella with her as he comforts her through the heartbreak.
  • Victim of the Week: Mostly fills this role since he gets hurt in his debut episode and never appears again after that episode, although he's a bit of a fan favorite as far as one-shot victims go.

    Guardian Cosmos 

Guardian Cosmos

  • Adapted Out: Did not appear in the '90s anime.
  • Ancient Keeper: A spirit being whose purpose is to be the guardian of the Galaxy Cauldron, the place at the centre of the Milky Way where all stars and living things in the galaxy are born. Considering how old the galaxy is, it can be assumed that she's really ancient.
  • Cryptic Conversation: Has one of these with Usagi when Usagi comes to the Galaxy Cauldron. A lot of her statements are pretty ambiguous.
  • "Leave Your Quest" Test: A benevolent example. She offers Usagi the chance to leave the difficult life of being a Sailor Guardian and start a new life in the form of a star or go back to her old life as she was. Usagi chooses the latter because, as hard as her old life has been, she'd rather stay with her friends.
  • Little People: She appears to be only a few inches tall.
  • Magic Staff: Carries a long staff that glows.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Several other characters in the series have it too, but Guardian Cosmos takes the cake. Her hair looks like it extends well below her feet.

Codename: Sailor V characters

    Hikaru Sorano 

Hikaru Sorano


  • Boyish Short Hair: Although it's black instead of blue, it makes her look almost identical to Ami.
  • The Cameo: Makes a brief appearance in Sailor Moon: Another Story.
  • Damsel in Distress: Any time she is a victim of the Dark Agency, Minako has to rescue her as Sailor V.
  • Designated Victim; Commonly a victim of attacks by the Dark Agency, just like her Sailor Moon counterpart Naru.
  • Gender-Blender Name: The name Hikaru is unisex, although it's typically more common for boys.
  • Heroic Willpower: Subverted. She is commonly a victim of the Dark Kingdom, although she is one of only three people to resist the allure of the Dark Agency's Rainbow Chocolates (mainly because she always eats healthily).
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Minako. She's a muggle and is her best friend in Codename: Sailor V.
  • Nice Guy: Kind and caring, to the point where she's become the vice-president of a volunteer club. She's so nice that Artemis once wished she were Sailor V instead.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. She shares the name Sorano with a boy in Chibi-Usa's Picture Diary. As an expy of Amano and Umino, it's probably his surname too.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: Minako, Hikaru and Amano.

    Gurikazu Amano 

Gurikazu Amano


  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Thanks to his habits, Amano is one of the few characters able to avoid the Dark Agency's plans to drain energy, and at one point he even manages to help Sailor V defeat the Monster of the Week.
  • Distressed Dude: Sometimes Sailor V has to rescue him, but he's avoided it as much, either by savviness or because they didn't want to go after him.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: He is implied to have had a crush on Minako.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His annoying nerdy ways have made him this in his school, just like Umino. Though Minako and Hikaru seem to regard him as a friend.
  • Heroic Bystander: The biggest difference between Umino and Amano is that Umino has actively helped Sailor V. When she got trapped in her own video game, he helped by taking the controls to direct her and help her fight the youma.
  • Last-Name Basis: Everyone calls him Amano.
  • Nerd Glasses: With the same spiral look of the ones Umino wears.
  • Not Worth Killing: Usually a non-killing example, but the Dark Agency tended to avoid targeting him on purpose because they found him unattractive.
  • Otaku: Yet another thing that he and Umino have in common. It's why his classmates find him annoying.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: Minako, Hikaru and Amano.

    Toshio Wagaki 

Toshio Wagaki


  • Butt-Monkey: Whether by accident or on purpose, Sailor V seems to screw him over when they both work on the same case. She makes him look bad and his boss berates him by comparing the two.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Really hates sweets like chocolate. It's the only reason why he managed to avoid the spell of eating the Rainbow Chocolates.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: The fact that Sailor V gets all the glory and he gets all the blame from his boss has made him pretty resentful of the fact.
  • Friend on the Force: Eventually becomes this to Sailor V once he warms up to her a little.
  • Inspector Javert: Wanted Sailor V in prison because, although she basically does his job for him, she's still a vigilante.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: As much as Sailor V does his job better than him, she's still a vigilante and there are laws about things like that. Too bad his boss is a fan of her.
  • Noble Bigot with a Badge: Can be hostile and closedminded to Sailor V, but ultimately is one of these. In fact, he's implied to have a role in Sailor V getting more respect from other cops.
  • Police are Useless: Is treated like a Butt-Monkey because Sailor V solves his cases better than he can, so he spends too much time blaming her.
  • The Real Heroes: As a cop who's trained and paid to keep the city safe, he sees himself as one of these and tries to deal with the youma himself. Unfortunately, he's also the Butt-Monkey of the series. Minako, on the other hand, doesn't believe in The Real Heroes, thinking that the cops are just arrogant jerks and that since she has superpowers, she should just deal with it hserlf.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Superintendant Sakurada manages to reassign Inspector Wakagi to Siberia at one point. Understandably, he lampshades why the heck the Japanese police force has a Siberian outpost in the first place.
  • Unlucky Everydude: He's just a regular guy trying to do his job, but a superpowered vigilante keepings showing him up on purpose by doing his work for him, which gets him in trouble with his boss and even gets him reassigned to Siberia.

    Natsuna Sakurada 

Natsuna Sakurada


  • Ambiguously Bi: Like Minako, she has a crush on Phantom Ace, but her fangirlhood of Sailor V could be interpreted as an attraction. Her crush on Ace is actually because he reminds her of Sailor V.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Despite the fact that she's good enough to make Superintendent-General, she prefers to spend her time fangirling over Sailor V than actually doing her job.
  • Cool Big Sis: After learning Minako's identity and becoming her friend, Minako begins to look up to her like an older sister figure.
  • Da Chief: She is Officer Wakagi's boss who holds the rank of Superintendent-General (a real life rank in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police).
  • Fangirl: A closet fan of Sailor V. So much so that she regularly compares his performance to Sailor V's, always pointing out that the latter is way better.
  • Police are Useless: Mainly because she's more interested in being a Sailor V fan than a productive cop.
  • Secret Keeper: At one point, she witnesses Minako transform into Sailor V. The two end up becoming close friends and Natsuna tries to recruit her as a cop.
  • Temporal Theme Naming: Shares a seasonal name theme with Haruna Sakurada as well as a surname. Fans theorize that they might be related.
  • Tempting Fate: During the DeBrine chapter, Natsuna mentions the stress of dealing with the Dark Agency and Sailor V has made her lose weight. DeBrine's Rainbow Chocolate soon puts that in reverse.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": One of the highest-ranking police officers in Tokyo, she hero worships Sailor V.

Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara (JP), Jennifer Gould (Cloverway), Eden Riegel (Viz) (EN), Monica Villaseñor (LatAm)


  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Kakeru. In the manga version of the Princess Kaguya story, she's already pregnant with their child when she goes to space.
  • Closer to Earth: She's very logical and mature, in contrast to the more "dreamy" Kakeru.
  • Hot Scientist: Shares this in common with her love interest Kakeru. She is actually an astronaut, and to be an astronaut requires a degree in a STEM field.
  • Meaningful Name: The "take" ("bamboo") and "Hime" ("princess") parts of her name are references to the original Princess Kaguya myth.

    Naruru Osaka and Ruruna Kobe 

Naruru Osaka and Ruruna Kobe


  • Adapted Out: Naruru is Naru's younger sister, but in the first anime, Naru is declared to be an only child. Then again, when that was established, Naruru hadn't even appeared yet in the manga, so the anime creators wouldn't have known about her.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Naruru is Naru's younger sister, though we only see them together for two panels.
  • Brand X: Ruruna is an avid buyer of "Channel" brand items, and Naruru is an avid buyer of "Guccicci" brand items.
  • Buffy Speak: The two of them use words like "Haggened" or "Frappaccinoed" to abbreviate that they got ice cream or frappuccinos, among other things.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: The two of them like to dress up as Sailor Soldiers.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Naruru Osaka's from Osaka. Ruruna Kobe's from Kobe.
  • Fangirl: Both of them are fans of Sailor Moon.
  • Fiery Redhead: Naruru. But in an energetic way.
  • Genki Girl: Both of them.
  • Gyaru Girl: They have tanned skin and stylized hair, dress in short skirts, high heels, and have clearly visible cleavage.
  • Location Theme Naming: Their surnames are the names of two Japanese cities.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: In hiragana, Ruruna is Naruru spelled backwards.
  • Valley Girl: Their dialogue is often translated this way, though technically they're actually kogals.
  • Younger Than They Look: The two of them are supposed to be Chibi-Usa's classmates, but they look and act like ditzy teenage kogals. They're also much taller than Chibi-Usa and have visible cleavage.

    Kousagi Tsukino/Parallel Sailor Moon 

Kousagi Tsukino/Parallel Sailor Moon


  • Animal Motifs: Rabbits, like her mother. She even keeps several of them as pets.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: To Chibiusa.
  • Big Eater: Something she inherited from her mother. Her father even remarks that since she can eat anything, her tongue could save the world.
  • The Ditz: She's not very smart or sensible.
  • Elseworlds: Kousagi only exists in a one-shot story that was included in the Materials Collection. The story was later reprinted in Sailor Moon Short Stories Vol.2.
  • The Fool: Despite not being very bright and acting silly, she still manages to save the day when a giant rabbit head attacks.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: The daughters of the Inner Soldiers only let her hang out with them because their moms are friends.
  • Generation Xerox: She clearly takes after Usagi more than Chibiusa does.
  • Genki Girl: Yet another trait she has in common with Usagi.
  • Improbable Weapon User: She manages to summon all the cats of Japan to form one giant cat to devour the giant rabbit enemy.
  • Insane Troll Logic: She somehow believes that the natural enemy of rabbits are cats. She probably thought this up because she has an affinity toward rabbits and cats are her weakness.
  • The Klutz: Even moreso than her mother.
  • Meaningful Name: The kanji of her name translated means "little rabbit".
  • Nom de Mom: The royal family is matrilineal, so it actually makes sense that her name is Tsukino. Possibly Mamoru takes Usagi's last name in the future when they're married.
  • Plot Allergy: She really dislikes cats because she is allergic to them, but ends up having to summon countless cats to use as a weapon.

    Parallel Inners 

Parallel Inners


  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Rei Jr., who has long dark hair and does not like to socialize, preferring to nap instead.
  • Bookworm: Like Ami, Ami Jr. likes to study, but she has poor handwriting because she relies on computers too much.
  • The Fashionista: Mako loves shopping and fashion as much as Makoto does.
  • Geodesic Cast: With Kousagi, they become basically a collective copy of the inners. Same looks, same personality, same names, same planet represented by their Sailor powers.
  • Generation Xerox: Basically, they are carbon copies of their mothers just like Kousagi, in both appearance and personality. Their names are Ami Jr., Rei Jr., Mako and Mina.
  • Invisible Parents: Their fathers are never seen or even mentioned by name. But we know Ami Jr.'s father is a doctor who works side by side with her mother, Rei Jr.'s father is both a Shinto priest and teacher, Mako's father helps run Makoto's flower and cake shop, and Mina's father is a sitcom director.
  • The Illegible: Ami Jr.'s handwriting is said to be very sloppy since she uses computers so much.
  • Jerkass: All four of them act like this to Kousagi. They don't really like her and ditch her whenever they can.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: All of them are Sailor Guardians, just like their mothers in the main continuity.
  • Nom de Mom: All of them have their mothers' surnames. Apparently, it's traditional for a Sailor Guardian's husband to take his wife's name.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: Ami Jr.'s eyes are not visible when she wears her glasses.
  • The Prankster: Mina is just as rowdy and troublemaking as her mother.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Mako wears one but holds it with a ribbon instead of a hair tie like Makoto.
  • Unnamed Parent: Their never-seen fathers are all this.
  • Younger Than They Look: They're supposed to be eight years old, but they look more like young teenagers.
