While discussing the properties of the shards of the Moon Kingdom and the sword that the Senshi returned from the moon, Usagi meets Motoki Furuhata's best friend, Endo. However, this isn't the right Endo - this is an agent sent by the Dark Kingdom... Tuxedo Mask, to be precise! Tuxedo Mask bewitches Makoto to let him into the Sailor Senshi's command centre, and uses his advantage to trap the Sailor Senshi.
Tropes used in this episode:
- Absurd Cutting Power: The sword from the Moon Kingdom doesn't just cut diamond: it destroys it.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Prince Endymion, in line with all adaptations. He also used Hypnotic suggestions on Motoki and Makoto, the latter for a Batman Gambit that led him to the senshi's command center, the former to help him take the Legendary Silver Crystal
- Paper-Thin Disguise: "Endo" deduces that Usagi is Sailor Moon due to similar physical appearances.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: An amnesiac Endo wanders off after the encounter with evil Tuxedo Mask and... nothing. The only mention he gets after that is how he looks from Reika.
