- Harsher in Hindsight: The manga's finale gives Minako's carefree disposition much more weight when you realize just how hard she had it fighting the forces of the Dark Kingdom for a year before the other Senshi awoke. And never brings this up or holds it against them.
- Les Yay: Sakurada has a none too subtle crush on Sailor V.
- Nightmare Fuel: Petite Pandora smiling while dying, as she's unleashing toxic gas as it happens. *shudders*
- Let's just say that death ain't pretty for most of the villains in this series, which is meant to be for kids.
- Three words: Venus Sulphur Smoke. Yes, it's Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Sailor V summons a sulphuric acid cloud from Venus' atmosphere (she confirms it when Artemis accuses her of farting) and uses it on the Monster of the Week. Good thing there were innocents and she diluted it into just smelling horribly...
- More Popular Spinoff: Sailor Moon
- Sequel Displacement: Due to No Export for You the series was only known by the most dedicated Sailor Moon fans until 2011, when an official English translation was finally made available.
- Values Resonance: The story about Minako being harassed by an obsessive Otaku who assumes she's a guy in drag because he can't accept the idea of a girl beating his high score, as well as the fact that he acts completely inappropriate when she turns into Sailor V and overall thinks girls have no right "invading" video arcades is surprisingly appropriate given the surge in harassment against female gamers and fans for being "fake geek girls."
YMMV / Codename: Sailor V
