"So, there was this one time, and there was this one place, and it was like, really far away, like, on the moon. And then this stuff happened..."
Narrator and Queen Beryl, the first lines of episode #1

Sailor Moon Abridged (SMA) is a Gag Dub of the 1992 Sailor Moon anime created by Corinne "Megami33" Sudberg, written by Kris "KrisRix" Woodside, and also starring Eric "Roll002" Pietrangolare, Constantine "Whip0fAlchemy" Angelos, and Christian "Judgement915" Bellucci. This series covers the entire Dark Kingdom arc and most of the Doom Tree arc. It's a notable Abridged Series for being one of the few among its peers to have more than 40 episodes, and the first to prove that a female main cast can be just as funny.

It derives most of its humor from flanderizing the show's main characters, mocking its general premise and especially the show's famously horrible 1990s English dub. Not to mention just about anything else it can think of. There's also notably little reliance on pop culture and Internet references.

All of its creators handle the writing and most of the voice acting. Season 2 adds EvilChicken25 of Gargoyles Abridged and editor Lana Shittles to the cast. And none other than LittleKuriboh cameos as Moonlight Knight. Corinne herself is also part of Team Four Star.

Former members MaxSkate2001 and Whip0fAlchemy both resigned for scheduling reasons. Whip0fAlchemy has since attempted abridging Revolutionary Girl Utena and joined the cast of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Abridgerty. SMA was dragged into The War of the Abridged Series Creators in 2008, which they handled in a surprisingly mature way.

The official site's domain has sadly expired, but an archived version is thankfully available here (with still-active links to unlisted episodes on their main YouTube account, as long as you delete the Internet Archive portion of a link) and the backup YouTube account is sadly purged of episodes. However, Archive.Org still has all of the episodes. So be sure to download them if you're able!

Seeing that no new videos have been put up since 2012, it's probably safe to assume this series has gone the way of the dinosaurs.

In 2018, the Mexican youtuber Otamon did a Spanish dub of the series and an unofficial sequel, focusing on the Sailor Moon R season. It respects the continuity of the original abridged series, keeping the characterization and jokes, but because it's made in Mexico, the series is in Spanish.

This show provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    Sailor Moon Abridged 
  • Accidental Misnaming:
    • Nephlite always gets Molly's name wrong. Until his last two episodes, at least.
    • A lesser example in Episode 4, with Saffron. No one can remember exactly which spice she shares a name with.
  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: The "Sailor Moon Says" segments are thoroughly mocked.
  • Adaptation Deviation: The Mexican dub made several changes to the abridged.
    • The first season ended with the defeat of Queen Beryl and they made their own second season, the Sailor Moon R series.
    • There's an extra episode about Mina's backstory.
    • When Queen Beryl destroys the world in Queen Serenity's timeline, Sailor Saturn awakes and kills everyone. Also Saturn has Molly's obnoxious voice.
    • The battle against Queen Beryl, while funny, has some emotional moments.
    • The movie changed many things, such as Rini being more prominent and Sailor Moon gaslighting Fiore with a fake memory in order to turn him to the side of good before killing him. Also the movie ends with Rini shooting Serena with a fake gun as "punishment for endangering Darien". Then Mina brings a real gun and starts shooting everyone for fun.
    • Alan and Ann have a different plotline and they're killed by Mina at the end of the episode.
  • Anvilicious:invoked The Remix episode really hammers in the message that The Power of Friendship and Team Spirit can help a team overcome a challenge, as it does the Sailor Scouts, while a refusal to cooperate can doom a team to failure, as it does the Negaverse generals.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Pointed out in episode 32. Plot Point 5 - Mina somehow picks up Serena's DNA just from brushing her hair (enough to fool a DNA scanner disguised as a hair steamer). Of course, the original point was that a loose strand of Serena's hair could have wound up in Mina's brush, which then ended up in Mina's Hair. That one piece was picked up by the scanners. Plus, even if somehow all of those incredibly contrived events panned out exactly, it still wouldn't work because hair doesn't have any DNA in it. There might be a few testable skin cells on the follicle-end, but that's a long shot at best, and if the scanners were so absurdly sensitive that a few stray cells could fool them, anyone Serena made physical contact with in the past week would have yielded a similar false-positive result. In short, like Raye said, it is a REALLY F#*KING RETARDED plot hole!
  • Better than a Bare Bulb: Can cross into this at times with pointing out flaws in the anime.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: All mentioned In-Universe:
    • The dream footage of Serena apparently marrying Tuxedo Mask and Andrew in Episode 13/14. Lampshaded by Serena.
    • In episode 32, Queen Beryl's orb does... something...
      Orb: "Unh!!" *brief flash of white flies out of the orb*
      Beryl: "Sorry, it does that sometimes. Ignore it. What where you saying?"
    • Both Lampshaded and subverted in Episode 26/27, where Luna is being chased by a crowd of horny pussies, only to be saved by a large cerulean male cat. "Well, that was just pointless and weird," she grumbles... but the large male cat turns out to be the Monster of the Week.
    • In episode 36/37, the random singing of Pokemon parody songs, but most notably Ami's song, which was lampshaded by Greg's reaction
    • "Here's a completely useless scene, with Raye in pink overalls. Please laugh at your own discretion." (Beat) "WHAT?"
  • Bizarro Universe: In the Remix Episode, the Sailor Scouts are transported to another dimension where everyone's names are different (the Sailors' are taken from DiC's pitch reel), Sailor Mars tolerates her teammates better, Sailor Mercury speaks like a Pokémon, and everyone in the Negaverse has different personalities as well.
  • Black Comedy:
    Artemis: Run Luna! Run off that pregnancy!
    Luna: What?! I thought you said that was your tail!
    Artemis: Run it off, bitch!
    • We all know it ends with Diana.
    • From episode 41: "Didn't there use to be an orphanage there?"
    • Used horrifically in episode 46/47.
  • Black Comedy Rape: The whole plot of episode 42. Double Subverted in the Sailor Says!
    Megami33: Hi Everyone, You know here at SMA we like to joke at a bunch of things but rape isn't funny. At all. In fact all those that joke about it should go straight to-(Gets taken away by several people)
    • Also invoked at the end of Episode 18 when Tuxedo Mask kisses a very, very drunk (and unconscious) Serena. She isn't perturbed by it in the slightest.
      Tuxedo Mask: {romantic music cuts out} Unconscious girls can't say no!
      {cut to Sailor Says}
      Serena: I GOT KISSED BY TUXEDO MASK! *squees*
    • From Episode 30, after Darien and Serena (unconscious) appear in front of Zoisite:
      Zoisite: Ooh- woah there am I interrupting? Should I close up that pod for a minute, let you finish up there?
      Darien: No- no! She's just passed out.
      Zoisite: {Incredulously} That doesn't change anything.
    • And then of course, there's the question of how Serena and Darien had Rini when she was supposedly in a food coma for seven years.
  • Book Ends: The series begins with Serena waking up late for school screaming,
    Serena: AAAH! I hear loud noises!
  • Brain Bleach: Serena flips out when the "seed" metaphors in the movie get out of hand.
    • In another episode she requests some eye bleach. Lucky that Raye has some!
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: When the Sailor Scouts find Anne visiting the shrine where Raye works, Serena exclaims that she might do something evil, such as performing a voodoo ritual, taking drugs, or performing a voodoo ritual while taking drugs.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: In episode 46/47 when Mina is talking down a kindergartner.
    Mina: You are on my turf HONEY! We may share a classroom and like share books and share needles but I ain't sharing my clientele.
  • Brick Joke: In their version of episode 33, it just focuses on Serena going to (and getting expelled from) the finishing school. Then, before the episode ends, Serena realizes that she forgot something. Cut to the room filled with girls who were frozen in wax by the Monster of the Day and never rescued.
    • An earlier example from episode 3, where one of Serena's friends — a short, nameless fat girl — is on a treadmill at the gym while her trainer keeps pushing her to go faster. After the "Sailor Moon Says" segment, she's still running and begs the trainer to let her go home. His response: "No. Keep going, Pillsbury!"
      "I'm still fat from the other episode!"
    • "Still waiting on that pizza... pizza..."
  • Butt-Monkey: In Real Life, Roll002 (Eric). If the bloopers are any indication, he can't get through a single line without messing it up at least a few times. Add to this the fact that he plays villains and, later, Darien (who are, by definition, Mr. Exposition) and we get a lot of bloopers and a very sarcastic SMA crew.
  • Call-Back:
    • Episode 39 is referenced by Artemis in The Movie, when he mentions the moon kingdom had no militia.
    • When Beryl yells at Zoisite at the start of Episode 23 and Zoisite can't counter any of her arguments, she harkens back to Episode 8 when she quips that at least they're the opening skit this time.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Just like in the dub, but exclusive to the show:
    Useless Attack, Blast! - Sailor Mercury
    RUN AWAY! - Sailor Mercury
    Moon Healing Activation, GODDAMMIT!! - Sailor Moon
    Venus Anal Beads, Vaginate! - Sailor Venus
    Jupiter Hoe Slap Nipple Shocker! - Sailor Jupiter
    Jupiter Home Biscuit Dizzle Slices Crash! - Sailor Jupiter
  • Catholic Schoolgirls Rule: "CATHOLIC GIRLS TASTE BETTER."
  • Censor Box: Lita's friend Ken took a real long dive early in episode 43. Amy knows it can't be good since there's a giant censor bar on him.
    Serena: (In response to Amy's and Lita's concern) You guys are overreacting. I'm sure he's (censor bar shifts a little to show a pool of blood) fiiIIINNEEE!! OH, GOD, PUT IT BACK! PUT IT BACK!
  • Christmas Songs: Parodied in an album offered on their site. Chris "Kirbopher" Niosi, Megami's (ex)boyfriend, animated a video of one, including drawing Serena as Pac-Man.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    "Trainer": "Hey guys, I'm your token homosexual of the episode."
    Serena: "He's really cute, but the purple's a little gay."
    Molly: "Serena, he already said he's a homosexual."
    Serena: "So does that make him gay?"
  • Compressed Adaptation: In the original North American dub of Sailor Moon R, Luna restored the memories of Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina in episode #42, returned their old transformation pens in the same episode, and gave them upgraded pens in episode #56. In the SMA version, Luna gives the girls their restored memories and upgraded pens in episode #42.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Episode 26/27 (even though s/he's definitely shocked when s/he fails):
    Zoisite: The fact that I'm showing up within the first thirty seconds of this episode proves that I'm not going to succeed, even though all the odds are in my favor.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: The unofficial Mexican dub of the movie ends with Luna saying that Fiore's plan to crash the Earth with his flowers would have failed anyway because they would have burned upon entering the atmosphere. Nobody is happy about this....except Raye, because she got to see Fiore die in such a sadistic way.
  • Curse Cut Short: "But do not fail me, Jedite, or I will shove these nails straight up your—"
  • The Day the Music Lied: Happens in Episode 46/47, when Sailor Venus stops her Theme Music Power-Up to call Vultros out on attempting to use the "Over Nine Thousand!" meme.
    Sailor Venus: "That shit hasn't been funny since 2007!"
  • Defiled Forever:
    Molly: He touched me! I'm not a virgin anymore!
    • Also...
      "He touched that boy's breast! There's no greater offense!"
  • Department of Redundancy Department: "Did you just self-censor yourself?"
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Most of Jedite's schemes for sucking energy were not what you'd call subtle.
    • "Hey, nerd, you've really put in a lot of ENERGY into this class and I'm really impressed by your ENERGY input. So I wanted you to lead the class today and teach them how to give more ENERGY for completely innocent reasons. …ENERGY!"
  • Disney Death: The resurrections in Episode 40 and Promise of the Lost Rose occur more abruptly than they did in the show.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Some idiots tried sexually assaulting Raye in her own home alone. Whatever she did, they deserved it on every possible level.
  • Don't Explain the Joke:
    Chad: What?
    Amy: I think that since Raye holds Hell in such a high regard, spending the afterlife in Heaven is a terrible fate for her, hence the insult.
    Serena: And that is the joke!
    • Happened again in the trailer for the remix episode:
      [Sailor Moon]'s sailing to the USA! Get it? It's a pun! Because she's a sailor who's sailing. From the moon!
  • Double Entendre: Too many to count.
    Alan: "Please say I can play my flute for you."
    Serena: "You can do whatever you want with that flute!"
  • Dress Hits Floor: Used by Zoicite to ditch her fake Sailor-Senshi costume and reveal her standard Negaverse uniform. ...Which involves grey slacks, even though when she was wearing the Sailor Fuku there was a Panty Shot.
  • Dude, She's Like in a Coma: Beryl, with unconscious Darien in her evil grasp!
    • Also, Tuxedo Mask with the unconscious Serena.
      Tuxedo Mask: "Unconscious girls can't say no!"
    • Serena makes a call-back at the end of the series in the Mexican dub....with Darien's corpse.
      Serena: "Dead boys can't say no!"
    • Again in episode 30, when Zoicite teleports Darien and Serena, who is unconscious, into the Negaverse's lair.
      Zoicite: Welcome Tuxedo Ma- whoa, there! Am I interrupting? Do you want me to close up that pod again, give you a minute to finish up there?
      Darien: No, no- she's just passed out.
      Zoicite: (scoffs) That doesn't change anything.
    • This comes up when the scouts discuss where Rini came from
      Mina: Don't you remember? You were in a food coma for seven years and this is your daughter, Rini
      Serena: (visually shocked/confused) WHAT!? How the heck did that happen!?
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Sailors Uranus and Neptune show up backstage while the evil clown ruins the Snow White play and attacks everyone, but decide to wait a few episodes before they start randomly appearing to save the Sailor Scouts.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: The first few episodes contain a Laugh Track, and footage from the first 30 episodes seem to retain DiC's added censorship and effects (such as the Idiosyncratic Wipes).
    • Apparently the laugh track was in-universe as Sammy once asks where all the laughter is coming from.
  • Elemental Rock-Paper-Scissors: Subverted. "Yeah like fire's gonna help when you're fighting water. Oh shit it did."
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Subverted each time it occurs.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Serena blatantly displays Les Yay when she first meets Raye and Mina.
    Meeting Raye: Wow! I wanna be a lesbian for her!
    Meeting Mina: HAWT!
    • Rei for her fangirls/hench-girls. And Serena when they first met until she realized what Rei's personality was actually like.
  • "Everybody Laughs" Ending: The Remix episode
  • Fake Static: Attempted. With videophones.
    Serena: What's that? I can't hear you! kkkkkkkkkkch You're breaking up!
    Amy: Serena, I can see you!
    Serena: ...No you can't.
  • Filler: Parodied to the most logical extreme.
    • An example being episode 32, in which they just point out all the important (and not-so-important) plot points.
    • Episode 33 cuts out the fighting, leaving just the finishing school plot.
    • Amy was left for dead in Episode 34. But then again, considering it's filler, it won't even matter.
  • Flanderization: Par for the course, being an Abridged Series.
  • Foreshadowing: In an early episode, Melvin discuseses the character of the day, Princess Diamond, who he says has no relation to Prince Diamond. When Serena asks who that is, Melvin says she'll see when the show gets to that part, to which she answers the show will never get that far, and sure enough, the show indeed ended before the second half of Sailor Moon R, which is where Diamond appears.
  • From Dress to Dressing: Just like in the series, Molly does this for Nephlite. She tries to play it up for Fanservice, but he was too busy taking off his shirt to notice.
  • Funny Foreigner: Andrew and Rita, who is a Swede with limited English skills here.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: Raye slapped Serena five consecutive times in Episode 31, but Serena got used to it. Amy also slapped Serena in the season finale, only to get kicked out of the team.
  • Gilligan Cut: Episode 2.
    Serena: Everybody's gonna love my letter!
    {cut immediately to Serena sitting by the radio}
    Serena: Those pricks didn't read my letter!
  • Glorious Mother Russia: Where Alan and Anne pretend to be from.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: Jesus doesn't seem too keen on helping the Scouts out whenever they call on him. Considering that one of their members is a proud Satanist...
    • Though at least one episode had him say he was busy dying for everyone's sins, so... Subverted...?
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Aside from one instance of 'heck' from Luna in Episode 41, and the "Bridge to Heck" sign in the war video, it never happened in the series.
    • Well, Serena did say "Oh my gosh" a few times, but it didn't seem to be an intentional toning-down.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Running Gag throughout Season 2. In Episode 42, the Scouts transform in the original Japanese phrases. Lampshaded kind of by Mina.
    Mina: I spoke in Asian!!
  • Guilt by Association: All the sailor scouts go to hell in the first season's finale, even Amy, despite Raye being the only one who's a Satanist.
  • A Hell of a Time: After Raye is killed during the season finale, her "motivational speech" for Serena is to not die and ruin her eternal paradise.
    • Although if SHE enjoys it so much, it must REALLY be bad...
  • Hijacked by Jesus: Sort of. Jesus appears as an unseen character. And at one point Sailor Moon saves a priest.
    • Having Raye being a Satanic Pyromaniac instead of a Shinto temple Miko would probably qualify. No complaints here though :)
    • From the episode 7 bloopers:
      Amy: "Please, Jesus, bring my friends home."
      Jesus: "No."
  • Hilarious Outtakes: There are consistent blooper reels for the first 22 episodes.
  • Hypocritical Humor: From Episode 35:
    • A meta example when Mina (played by KrisRix) castigates a Monster of the Week for trying to invoke the "Over 9000" meme, when Amy (also played by KrisRix) did exactly that during Episode 10.
  • If You Die, I Call Your Stuff: In Episode 10 (the one where Jedite dies).
    Random Negaverse Creep: Can I have your porno collection?
  • I'm a Humanitarian: When Serena was starving she contemplated eating a little kid. A little kid happened to be passing by. He was obviously terrified beyond belief when she approached him.
  • In Memoriam:invoked Episode 46/47 is dedicated to Jordan Winston, Jr. II, the baby Serena and Darien were babysitting. To Amy's horror, Serena threw him into the garbage.
    • Played straight in an earlier episode which was dedicated to the memory of KrisRix's pet hamster.
  • In the Name of the Moon, I like wiener schnitzel!
  • Ironic Echo Cut:
    Darien: Don't underestimate her and her friends, simpleton. She'll never go to the ski resort.
    Serena: I love the ski resort!
    • Or...
      Andrew: You'll never leave me, right?
      Rita: Ja!
      (cut to the airport)
      Andrew: I guess I'll see you around, eh?
      Rita: Ja! Bye-bye!
  • Killed Off for Real: Implied with Jesus, he says at one point he's dying for everyone's sins, he hasn't been heard ever again since then.
  • Lady Gaga: Alan is a fan of hers - he plays various songs of hers on the flute. Mixed with Medium Awareness when Mina hears him playing "LoveGame" inside the VR theatre in Episode 44.
    Alan: I definitely know your culture! For instance, I am down with the Gaga lady!
  • Large Ham: "Are you questioning the talking cat?"
  • Larynx Dissonance: Andrew (KrisRix) and Malachite (Whip0fAlchemy).
    • Played with by Whip0fAlchemy, who (as of LordQuadros's "Yay, we got engaged!" video) has been established as a transgender man. However, he has on multiple social media networks stated (i.e. Facebook) that he is "pre-everything" and cannot afford to take hormones, therefore, he is naturally an example of Larynx Dissonance for either gender.
  • Left Hanging: The last episode of the series has Ann saying that the Scouts would be fighting on their turf next time with a ominous shot of the Doom Tree. This was meant to set up the two-part finale that would have ended SMA (as said by Word of God they planned to end at the Doom Tree Saga and do the other two movies) but Real Life got in the way and SMA was discontinued.
  • Leitmotif: For the girls' transformation sequences:
    • Sailor Moon - "Barbie Girl" by Aqua;
      • SMA Remix: "Hungry Hippo" by Parry Gripp;
        "Oh, *honk* you, SMA!"
      • Movie (and Season 2 Episode 45 - Present): "Candy Store" by Hyper Crush;
    • Sailor Mercury - "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice;
      • SMA Remix: "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" by Eiffel 65;
      • Movie (and Season 2): "Don't Trust Me" by 3OH!3;
    • Sailor Mars - "We Be Burnin" by Sean Paul;
      • SMA Remix: "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps;
      • Movie (and Season 2): "Fire Burning" by Sean Kingston;
    • Sailor Jupiter - "The Church of Hot Addiction" by Cobra Starship;
      • SMA Remix: "Electric Boogie" by Marcia Griffiths;
      • Movie (and Season 2): "Somebody Told Me" by The Killers (Josh Harris Club Remix);
    • Sailor Venus - "Wanna Do Your Makeup" by Scotty Vanity;
      • SMA Remix: "Venus" by Bananarama;
      • Movie (and Season 2): "LoveGame" by Lady Gaga;
    • Tuxedo Mask - "Lost" by Anouk;
    • Disguise Pen - "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake;
    • Sailor Moon (Zoicite) - "Ugly Girl" by Jack Off Jill.
  • Limited Animation: Serena personally points out this trope in action during Episode 23.
    Serena: Wow! That blur filter almost makes it look like he's moving! I love low-budget anime!
  • The Load: Sailor Mercury is so utterly useless in a fight, Serena offered a Monster of the Week Mercury's position. Plus, the one time she DOES defeat a monster, Serena is convinced that the Moonlight Knight took care of it. The worst part: He took the credit. Ouch.
    • Mina manages to be even more useless, being so ditzy as to actually FORGET how to transform at one point, only remembering when all the fighting is over. Also, at the finishing school ball, she nearly forgot her own name.
      Serena: What? Raye? Amy? Lita? Mina?
      Mina: My name's no- oh, wait...
      • It should be noted in season 1, Mina only ever did anything all of TWICE. The first time in her introduction to save the Scouts, and the second time to kill a Psycho Rangers version of herself for having bad hair (which also resulted in her own death)
    • And most tedious of all is rescuing Molly for the umpteenth time.
      Serena: Christ, again? I mean, every *honk*ing episode...
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Raye's song "Oh Bloody Night" sounds like a sweet love song, but is about how she tortures a guy for Satan.
    • Actually, judging by the first two lines of the song(and the first subliminal photo in the part of the song in the actual episode) it may be about her torturing her boyfriend(?), Chad, which makes it both this and a "normal" love song.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: If no one else, then definitely KrisRix – he voices Amy/Mercury, Raye/Mars, Mina/Venus, Beryl, Zoicite, Andrew, Molly, and any number of random background characters.
    • Eric as well, though it's somewhat more obvious it's him. He plays Melvin, Lita/Jupiter, Jedite, Nephlite, and Darien (sometimes).
    • Corinne is no slouch either, playing Serena/Moon, Luna, Haruna, Sammy, Serena's mom, Jesus, and any incidental characters Kris or Eric don't play.
  • Medium Awareness: Per standard procedure as on so many Abridged series. Though this one does it more often than most.
  • Milestone Celebration:invoked Episode 50 includes several gags written by the viewers.
  • Mood Whiplash: Certain scenes (like Nephlite's death and the flashback to the destruction of the Moon Kingdom) are honestly played a bit too straight to be funny. It's seriously jarring, especially as the dubbing is still deliberately comically bad.
  • Motor Mouth: Nancy Vargas, the Intrepid Reporter from Episode 38.
    Serena: I, uh, have a letter from Sailor Moon!
    Nancy: OhmyGodwhatascoop! Itsaysshewantstomeetmeattheparkatmidnightandtellmeallabouthowshewantsto
    Serena: I have nooo idea what you just said! Bye!
  • The Movie: The first was released on February 18, 2010, but before Season 2 actually began. According to Episode 45, they're in a different canon from the rest of the series, so Serena should've forgotten about it afterwards...
  • Musical Episode: Doubles as a Pokemon Crossover, sort of...
    • Somewhat lampshaded in the same episode when Greg, on the phone with Amy, reacts to her sudden burst of song like a normal person might - first confusedly, then just giving up and hanging up the phone.
  • Negated Moment of Awesome: The first time Raye uses her Shinto scrolls onscreen, she fails to eliminate the evil force she sensed, because Serena got in the way of her scroll.
    • Poor Amy. If those sailor scouts only saw you destroy that monster in Episode 46/47, you could've gotten some, if any, respect.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: The "time-rewinding powers" Darien used to pull Serena to safety when she nearly fell off a balcony. He received such powers as a reference to the fact that in DiC's version, the footage of Serena falling plays backwards to make it look like Darien pulled her back up. (Originally, they both fell and used Usagi's parasol as a parachute.)
    • Sailor Moon once turned her tiara into a "lesbian trapper", binding the Monster of the Week. When Luna asked Sailor Moon how she did that, she answered, "Hell if I know! This show makes no sense!"
  • Nominal Hero: The entire cast, really, a collection of jerks, idiots, a psychopath, a drunk, are basically a generally incompetent and unsympathetic bunch.
    • The unofficial Sailor Moon R sequel reveals they're aware of it though.
    Rini: You don't just ruin everything, you follow the orders of that whiny and useless Sailor Moon.
    Raye: And your point is....?
    Rini: Serena doesn't deserve to be Sailor Moon. She's not a warrior of love and justice....SHE'S A USELESS FATASS!
    Raye: You're goddamn right.
    Rini: .....W-what?
    Mina: Like, nobody in their right mind would give Serena that power and responsibility.
    Lita: Or any of us, yo! But that's how things are.
  • Non-Serial Movie: Played for all its dodgy canon by being put right after the first season rather than somewhere in the second.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: Some of the DiC dub's more ridiculous lines were kept in as-is, with a caption like "(actual dialog in the English dub)" appearing on-screen.
    • If a scene has a particularly weird line-read, it may be accompanied with "(she actually talks like this in the dub)".
    • Lampshaded when Serena comes up with an insult so bizarre, Even the Subtitler Is Stumped as to where the hell it came from, the caption reading simply: (actual dialog in the English dub?)
  • Oblivious Younger Sibling: Literally with Sammy. It's become a running gag that Serena has no idea who he is.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: Melvin torments Molly with Nephlite's death repeatedly.
    • In a minor scale, both Serena and Amy stop trusting Luna after she confused Amy for a monster of the Negaverse for a few episodes.
  • Only in It for the Money: Titus refused to join the Sailor Scouts as the new Mercury because the Negaverse pays better.
  • Over Nine Thousand: The only time you'll ever hear Amy scream like Raye.note 
  • Overly Long Gag: From episode one: Sailor Moon is heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere-eeeeerrrrrrrrreeee-eeeeeeerrrrrrrrreee… …yeah.
    • And one example from the movie.
      Lita: Jupiter Home Biscuit Dizzle Slices Crash!
      Mina: Haha, woah Lita like, no, never again, joke over!
    • Episode 28:
      Serena: Wow, Luna, way to stereotype, you bitch! I guess all fat people like cake and donuts too, right?
      Luna: You said it, not me.
      Serena: ...And pizzas, and pretzels, and chips...
      Luna: Okay, Serena, I get it.
      Serena: ...And cotton candy, and corn dogs, and hot dogs, and dogs in general...
      Luna: This is Japan, not Korea!
  • Pals with Jesus: As an unseen character, who tends to speak up with an annoyed "What?" if someone takes His name in vain. Amy seems to be his favorite, though.
  • Pass the Popcorn: Sailor Mars in episode 20.
  • Perfectly Cromulent Word: Continuing the "Actual dialogue in the English dub?" gag:
    Serena: "Oh, come on, Luna, don't be such a stoidgemeister!"
    Luna: "A what??"
    Serena: "I like making up words! Fudgecracklesnott!"
    Luna: (Eye Take)
    • Serena does it again when she threatens to beat someone into the "Tyrannosphere".
  • Person as Verb: KrisRix suggested in the bloopers to refer to the team's mishaps as Erics, for obvious reasons.
  • Pokémon Speak: The stray cats in episode 26/27.
  • Post-Script Season: The Doom Tree arc. To elaborate, Kris mentioned in an interview that, at the time, she only saw herself and the rest of her team getting through season one.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: Played straight and then subverted in episode 21:
    MotW: I am Game Machine Man! Time to play...WHACK-A-BITCH!
    Lita: Time to play- oh, f*honk*k it! I'ma just beat the shit outta you!
  • Psycho Ex Boyfriend: Fiore. But not from any of the girls... That's right. Not even Mina.
  • Psycho Rangers: The Doom and Gloom girls are made into this for the Scouts. Though only the evil-Mina has a personality similar to her counterpart
  • Public Service Announcement : Amy tries to deliver one of these until Raye and Serena show up and give it their usual treatment.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: MUST! PRAY! TO! SATAN!!!
    • Also by Raye, as she sees Sailor Venus fly away for the first time:
      Raye: "STUPID. BITCH. CAN FLY. WHAT THE F*honk*K."
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: The aforementioned PSA is about mononucleosis, brought up because Eric (Roll002) had come down with the illness and had to be replaced as Lita for the episode.
    • Another one comes in Episode 36/37 where Prince Darien states that he loves Twilight. In real life, Eric is a fan of it.
  • Really Gets Around: Mina and, to a lesser extent, Darien.
  • Record Needle Scratch: This series loves this. It usually happens when someone says self-incriminating…
    Alan: (Actual English Dub Dialog) Serena, my love for you circles the orbit of your planet—
    Serena:: *vrrrp!!* WHAT?!
    • But it can also happen when something in the show makes no sense, like in Episode 3 when the Moon Tiara is able to bind the Monster of the Week (something it was not shown to do before or after).
  • Robo Speak: Serena does this after Darien reveals himself as Tuxedo Mask, for no good reason other than to emulate DiC. And of course she lampshades it while saying the line.
    Serena: Oh my god Darien is Tuxedo Mask. I can't believe it. I don't know why I'm talking like a robot.
    (Yes she actually speaks this way in the dub)
  • Running Gag: Many of them including, but not limited to:
    • Fat jokes. No episode would be complete without one of Serena's friends, enemies, or family members delivering a couple of these. Some of them get quite creative too.
    • Other characters' inability to hear anything Amy says.
    • Raye's desire to sacrifice people to Satan.
    • Lita's none-too-convincing attempts to pass as a girl.
    • Serena not being aware she has a brother.
    • Zoisite's inability to determine her his whatever-has-a-void-down-there gender.
    • Nephlite never getting Molly's name right.
      • It's Mawwwwwwwwwwwlly.
    • Nephlite and the stars… which rule.
    • Melvin (and later Serena) constantly reminding Molly about her dead boyfriend.
    • Queen Beryl's addiction to the Internet.
    • Queen Beryl's unhealthy fixation on Darien.
    • Artemis' drunken ramblings, and (eventually successful) attempts to seduce Luna.
    • The Moon Princess is still waiting for that pizza.
    • Mina's promiscuity.
    • A bit of a minor one, but whenever someone says Jesus' name, the off-screen voice of Him will respond with, "Yeah?"
    • Saying a line from the DIC dub and pausing with stunned silence, disbelief, reaction or apology.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: Raye, at Amy, in the movie.
  • Satan: Raye's almighty lord.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: Words like "Rose", "Whoosh", "Kaboom", and "Loud noises", which you just have to hear to believe.
  • Scare Chord: A handful of stock variations are used, and you'll often hear at least two different ones in the same episode.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Zoisite gets really Mind Screwed by this. It has been established that his/her gender is in fact "Void".
    Zoisite: What? You want me to wear a skirt?
    Queen Beryl: What's wrong with that?
    Zoisite: But... but...
    Queen Beryl: You are a woman, aren't you?
    Zoisite: {breaking down} I... I don't know anymore!
    • This was a Take That! to DiC, the original dubbers of Sailor Moon; they made Zoisite a woman.
    • His/her upskirt-causing hijinks as a faux-Sailor Scout are accompanied by horrified cries of "Oh my God what is that thing?!" When the camera is low enough to get a panty shot, all we can see is what looks like a portal to a realm of madness.
  • Shout-Out: Episode 50, courtesy of a fan, has Melvin commenting that he got the animal costumes on short notice from his friend named Joey.
    • Episode 36/37 is pretty much one giant reference to the Pokémon dub.
  • Sliding Scale of Silliness vs. Seriousness: Very silly. It's an Abridged Series after all. However, parts of the flashback sequence in episode 39 are definitely serious.
    • Nephlite's death in Episode 20 is also played fairly serious… at least until Raye realizes what's going on and deliberately kills the mood.
      "OH GOD~!! Wait. This is great! Where's the popcorn?"
  • Something Else Also Rises: Rare female version on episode 20 – after Molly sees Nephlite fight back against the demons who kidnapped her, the demon says, "I think I just wet my panties... and not with pee-pee."
    • (It's an easy mistake to make, but one of the bloopers has KrisRix saying that line in Molly's voice and Megami correcting him)
  • Sound-Effect Bleep: The *honk*ing effect is so popular, the creators have apologizednote  for forgetting to use it from time to time.
    • Episode 2 contained some additional sound effects as the students watch an ambulance take away Miss Haruna:
      Serena: Seriously guys, that mother*slide whistle*, monkey*foghorn*, doughnut-sucking *bicycle horn* failed me. Who cares if she dies?
      Molly: Aw, Serena, you're a total bitch!
      (Laugh Track)
  • Spexico: The caption before episode 43 starts is "Today's episode is brought to you by España" (Spanish for Spain), but the backround picture shown is the Mexican flag. At first it might look like a blatant error, but the title song was the Latin American version and the transformation key phrase was the Castilian Spanish one, so it was actually played with, maybe too much.
    • This combined with the Northern Mexico comments can also be taken as every other country can be mocked.
  • Spoof Aesop: The "Sailor Says" segments are used to teach these, encouraging (among other things) bulimia, steroid use, and Satanism.
  • Spoofed with Their Own Words: The "actual dub dialogue" has become a staple of the series, to the point that there are now several of these lines per episode.
    • There has also been "actual noise from the English dub (Sort of)" and "she actually talks like this in the dub".
    • And a couple times, even the SMA crew couldn't figure out the dialogue themselves – the "tyrannosphere" line in Episode 17 and the "stoigemeister" line in Episode 26/27 had the disclaimers typed with a question mark.
    • Episode 45: "Actual lack of DiC dialogue." The villain in question is limited to the Noblewoman's Laugh and the occasional "Racy!"
    • Episode 18 had the famous scene where Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon fall over a balcony and use an umbrella to float down safely. Probably to keep kids from trying this out, DiC cut the part after they both fell and reversed the part where Tuxedo Mask lost his grip on Serena's wrist.
      Tuxedo Mask: Oh, goddammit, she's so heavy! I have to use my time-rewinding powers!
  • Stock Footage: Aside from the normal uses associated with a Magical Girl series, the show occasionally uses footage from previous episodes when the current episode doesn't have enough dialogue scenes.
  • Sudden Video-Game Moment: In Episode 36/37, Sailor Mercury and Prince Darien faced off against each other as if they're in a Pokémon battle.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Fiore does not consider Darien his lover, he did not sleep with him when he was ten, and he most certainly is not gay.
    • Or you can interpret it another way.
    • And there's also this part of Episode 43:
      Alan: Serena, my feelings reach beyond the orbit of your planetnote .
      Serena: Your what?
      Alan: I mean, your country! Yes, It was silly of me to say planet because that makes me seem like some kind of alien which of course I'm not because we're from the same planet. That being Earth. Which I'm from. Like you.
  • Take Our Word for It: Several scenes and a fair amount of episodes were cut down to a bare-bones summary or omitted entirely for being (a) obvious filler or (b) mind-numbingly boring (or, as a third option, both). Every time, Serena or the narrator would assure the audience that they didn't miss much, and we're better off for not having seen it.
  • Take That!: To fans who might harp on them over inaccuracies. And to anyone who ever posted a comment, got offended by the show, or entered in contests. It takes a special mindset to be an SMA fan.
    • And to Windows Vista.
    • "I'll have you know that I'm the star of Megami33's Sailor Moon Abridged. You know, the only good one on YouTube!"
    • Episode 46/47 has Sailor Venus do a Take That! at 4Chan and the "Over Nine Thousand!" meme, the latter of which she says "hasn't been funny since 2007!"
  • Take That, Audience!: During Episode 28, when Raye and Lita complain that it's 1991 and therefore mini-computers and PD As haven't been invented yet, we cut to a viewer saying (in Melvin's voice) that they will have to look up the exact dates those things were invented and ridicule the SMA crew for getting it wrong, only to be interrupted by Raye screaming "GET A LIFE LOSERS!"
  • Tap on the Head: Parodied in Episode 26/27, when after the Monster of the Week attacks Chad, he just won't stay unconscious to let Raye transform into Sailor Mars.
    Raye: Oh shit, he's out cold! That's convenient; now I can transform! Mars Pow—
    Chad: j/k lol.
    Raye: Oh...oh hi...
    Chad: Don't worry, I'll protect you!
    Raye: Oh...great...
    Chad: (attacks the youma with his head, is thrown against the wall again)
    Raye: Oh. He's out cold!
    Chad: Wow, man, I need to work on my headbutts.
    Raye: Oh… Uh, he's out… cold.
    Chad: Raye, avenge me!
  • That's What She Said: Episode 13/14. Wow, Serena really nailed him!
  • The Stinger: Similar to the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series examples, except these stingers mostly play music clips over the footage, rather than a clip from a movie.
  • Token Good Teammate: Queen Beryl in the alternate universe episode. Although the villains fail at villainy as much as the sailor scouts fail at heroism.
  • True Love's Kiss: The final scene of Promise of the Lost Rose.
    Darien: I should at least kiss her goodbye.
    Raye: NO!
    Darien: I think I should.
    Raye: DON'T!
    (Darien kisses Serena, causing the crystal to rebuild itself; Raye screams)
    Serena: Wow, I'm feeling so much better!
  • The Unintelligible: Titus in episode 9
    • Amy in her first few episodes if you don't have the volume cranked up
    • Artemis when he's being particularly drunk
    • Rini, the little girl who suddenly appeared in the movie. In the Mexican dub (where they adapted an abridged of Sailor Moon R series) she speaks normally, but will start blubbering when she's upset.
  • Truth in Television: After joking about the inconsistent name regarding that crystal everyone's suddenly obsessed with, Episode 19 ends with a compilation of dialogue snippets from the DiC dub, revealing that yes, they really didn't care.
  • Uncanceled: In 2010, Megami's channel was terminated by Toei, removing the entire series in the process. They started a new Youtube channel and uploaded a few more episodes before life stopped production. If they ever finish the last two episodes of Doom Tree, that'll qualify for this too.
  • Unsound Effect: Rose! (See also Saying Sound Effects Out Loud above)
    • The fake crowd cheering and clapping in unison in Episode 4: "Cheer. Cheer. Cheer. Cheer."
    • Episode 26/27: "Shut your damn piehole, Serena! Shove."
    • Mina's "Giggle!"
  • Uranus Is Showing: Episode 6.
    Queen Beryl: And now we have Mercury to contend with. You know, there are nine planets so the longer we wait, the bigger that team gets. I mean, who's next, Uranus?
    Jedite: Hah, Uranus.
    Queen Beryl: Silence!
  • Valley Girl: Mina
  • Vocal Evolution: While many of the character's voices changed due to voice actors leaving and being replaced, Amy/Sailor Mercury plays this straight. When she started out, her voice was shy, quiet, and kind of cute. As the series progressed, she started having more of a squawk and spoke much more dramatically.
  • We Do Not Own: Originally averted, then played straightnote 
  • Wham Line: In the mexican dub, followed by the Wham Shot of the Silence Glaive being lowered
    Queen Serenity: Beryl, you idiot! You've doomed us all!
    Sailor Saturn: Saturn Power Make Up!
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: All the actual dub dialog.
    Amy: Don't blame it on the SMA crew!
    Lita: I know I am, yo!
    • If you listen to the bloopers, you'll occasionally hear Corinne and/or Eric have a terror-flavored one after Kris lets loose with Raye lines.
  • You Do Not Want To Know: Where Luna keeps all the sailor items.
    Amy: How did you fit that up there? Do you want to get dysentery?
    Luna: Trust me, where I'm from, every cat can fit much bigger things than that.note 
  • You Never Did That for Me:
    Alan: That girl has such passion. I want to lick her Booty Sweat!
    Anne: You never like MY Booty Sweat anymore!
    • Another example came in the first season finale:
      Sailor Moon: All you have to do is touch it.
      (Darien puts his hand on Sailor Moon's music box, which magically prompts him to perform a Heel–Face Turn)
      Queen Beryl: You traitor! You never touched mine!
  • Your Mom: Serena and Mina try pulling this on Amy, on two separate occasions, but their attempts end up sounding like Lame Comebacks.

    Sailor Moon R Abridged 
  • Behind the Black: From Episode 11.
    Serena (after the other Sailor Scouts got kidnapped by Rubeus because of Rini): You stupid brat! *tries to slap Rini*
    Darien: Serena! *grabs her hand*.....Not in front of the camera.
    (cue a black screen as the sound of Serena slapping Rini is heard.)
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Mina is still ditzy and forgetful as usual, but she's still able to kick ass and giving murder threats while not dropping her cheerful demeanor. Rini states that she's the only Sailor Scout she's terrified of.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing ever goes right for Rubeus. He's forced to work with the Spectre Sisters (despite his hatred for woman), cannot get the respect of his fellow Black Moon members at all and he's the only one that gets affected by Sailor Mercury's attacks. He also dies in a very pathetic way, trying to destroy his ship in order to kill the Sailor Scouts, only for the collapsing debris to fall on him.
  • Call-Back: There are a few references to the first season, like Mina's "Revlon Wind" and Raye trying to use fire attacks in an enclosed space again.
  • Catchphrase Insult: The Black Moon Clan has the tendency to use "pizza", "meatball" or "ravioli" as insults. That's because Wiseman manipulated them into thinking Neo-Queen Serenity tried to poison them with Italian food (see Disproportionate Retribution below).
  • Chubby Chaser: The reason of Prince Diamond's crush on Sailor Moon.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: When Mina wonders what Raye does with red-colored cotton, Artemis says she uses it for her stuffed toys in order to torture them in a more realistic way. Mina and Lita shrug it off, but at the end of the episode turns out he's right. He's also the one who gives Serena the idea to purify the Spectre Sisters.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Raye absolutely adores Rini and likes to dote on her. She gets really excited when Rini does something sociopathic and manipulative.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Turns out Wiseman's reason to manipulate the Black Moon Clan and attack Earth was because Neo-Queen Serenity gave Italian food to the prisoners of Nemesis and he was allergic to said food.
    Wiseman: Do you have any idea how hard it was to see everyone enjoying that feast while I swelled up just for eating Hawaiian pizza?! That's why my face looks like a skull! If I can't enjoy that food, nobody else will!
  • Does Not Like Men: Played for Laughs. Prizma has a grudge against men in general but Avery points out she's just embittered that Sapphire broke up with her in the past.
  • Enfant Terrible: Rini.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Sapphire is repulsed by Diamond lusting over Sailor Moon. Not because of his fetish for fat girls, but because she's underage.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Rini travelled to the past in order to meet her mother as Sailor Moon. Needless to say, she's quite disappointed to see Serena is a fat, gluttonous crybaby and lets herself to be kidnapped in various occasions to see her mother in action.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • In an early episode, Prizma tells Avery that her ex-boyfriend has a "sexy, alluring voice". 5 episodes later it's revealed her ex is Sapphire, who's The Unintelligible.
    • Also, in Episode 5, Lita says she wants a new technique when she summons a dragon made of lightning, but Amy says it isn't realistic. At the end of the series she gets the poweup she wanted.
    • After Sapphire leaves to convince Diamond about Wiseman's true colors, the Spectre Sisters try to make him stay so he won't be killed by Wiseman, but in the end Prizma gives up, stating that "there's nothing else we can do now". Sure enough, that episode is their last appearance.
  • Grounded Forever: The series ends with Rini returning to the future and Neo Queen Serenity grounds her for life.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Rubeus does not like women and thinks they're all moody and useless. That's the reason why he abuses the Spectre Sisters so much.
  • Hypocritical Humor: From Episode 5:
    • In Episode 10 Prizma tells Avery that she doesn't like Emerald because she's a "green-haired bitch".
    • Also Serena often mocks Rini for her "stupid-looking hair".
    • Serena mocking Rini's mother for being gluttonous and naming her Small Lady....then she finds out at the end of the series she's Rini's mother.
  • I'm Standing Right Here: From Episode 15
    Emerald (after being ordered by Diamond to bring Sailor Moon to him): If my finger slips and she dies, I'll bring her corpse. And then Prince Diamond will love only me!
    Sapphire: You know I can hear you.
    Emerald: N-no, you can't!
  • Irrational Hatred: Sailor Pluto has this towards Raye.
  • Not Completely Useless: Sailor Mercury is useless as usual during fights, but later episodes show she's very good at gaslighting people, such as when she manipulates Bertie to turn to the side of good.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: How Rini comes up with her "Black Lady" name after being aged-up magically by Wiseman.
    Black Lady: I am the Guardian of Planet Nemesis. And my name is....(*thinking* Damn, I guess I didn't think this through. Alright, my name is Serena Small Lady Tsukino, therefore my evil name will be....) BLACK LADY!
    Sailor Scouts: That's lame!
  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: In Episode 17, it's implied Prizma rapes the gravely injured Sapphire. Bertie is not amused, since they're using her bed.
  • More than Mind Control: When Rini becomes Black Lady and starts breaking havoc, everyone thinks it's because Rini has been brainwashed by Wiseman. As Serena finds out in the final episode, she was conscious all along, she just went along with Wiseman's plans in order to see her mother in action.
  • Out of Focus: Luna and Artemis are not so relevant anymore and they're horribly aware of it.
  • Pet the Dog: Raye is still a jerkass, but she's much nicer towards Rini. In Episode 9 she also helps Catzi to accept her inner sadistic convincing her to become a satanist.
    Raye: To praise a god...that won't allow you to embrace your inner desires....that won't allow you to suffer or making others's total BULLSHIT! But you know who doesn't discriminate? OUR LORD....SATAN!
  • Redemption Equals Death: Averted when Sapphire dies thanks to Wiseman's manipulations.
    Catzi: He's totally burning in Hell right now.
    • Also after Prince Diamond dies in Serena's arms after protecting her from Wiseman, she says that dying doesn't redeem him and he's still a filthy rapist.
  • Running Gag: Many of them including, but not limited to:
    • Still more fat jokes for poor Serena.
    • Raye still wants to sacrifice people to Satan. And she's always gushing over how sociopathic Rini is.
    • Amy being bullied by the other Sailor Scouts for being useless.
    • Rini's letting herself be kidnapped on purpose to see Sailor Moon in action.
    • Prince Diamond acting like a horny lovelorn teenager with a fetish for fat girls. And believing Wiseman's bad lies.
    • Emerald's annoying laugh.
    • Sapphire's "nyehnyehnyeh".
    • Rubeus's hatred for woman.
    • Wiseman accidentally saying his plans out loud everytime.
    • Prizma's resentment towards Sapphire and men in general. And doing things with PASSION!
    • Catzi preaching Satanism after being converted by Raye.
  • Second Love: Molly has started dating Melvin in this season. She isn't too happy about this and clarifies he's a consolation prize for losing Nephrite though.
    Melvin: We hooked up offscreen! It was so romantic!
    Molly: ....It was him or necrophilia.
  • Something Only They Would Say: When Amy gets brainwashed by the Monster of the Week, she sees illusions of her friends ridiculing her, including a smarter Mina who berates her for not knowing about binary codes. She gets off the mind control inmediately.
    Monster: How were you able to see past my illusions?!
    Sailor Mercury: Venus, spell "binary".
    Sailor Venus: B-I-N-A-Bow-chicka-bow-wow! ...Binary.
    Monster: Oh.
  • The Unintelligible:
    • Rini starts blubbering whenever she's upset, possibly a Call-Back to her appearance in the movie.
    • Sapphire can only say "Nyeh nyeh" but for some reason everyone can understand him and according to Prizma, he's quite eloquent. Strangely, he's able to speak normally when he's being serious.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Serena and Darien's reaction upon fiding out that Rini's second name is Small Lady.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Rini abuses this whenever the Sailor Scouts try to ask her where she comes from.
  • You Monster!: From Episode 17
    Serena (after being attacked by Black Lady): Stop this tantrum and I'll give you half of my pizza!
    Black Lady: I want all the pizza and for you to become vegetarian.
    Serena: You monster!
