4) Names: characters (original and dub), attacks and transformations, and character ages
(I'm sorry. I'm not going to put the Sailor Stars villains here just because they have 'Sailor' in their name.)

|[Asteroid senshi are senshi only in the manga. They first appear in the anime in episode 149, in non-Senshi forms.]|
|[The Sailor Stars are, in the anime, guys in civilian ID and change into girls as Senshi. They've been shown topless, confirming this. They are _not_ related, and "Kou" is not their family name. This must be one of the most persistent rumors around. If they were brothers, do you think they'd have birthdays three months apart? Naoko Takeuchi was asked if they're related, at the San Diego Comics Con in August 1998. No, they're not.]|
|Seiya Kou||N/A||S. Star Fighter||July 30||N/A||173||N/A|
|Taiki Kou||N/A||S. Star Maker||May 30||N/A||173||N/A|
|Yaten Kou||N/A||S. Star Healer||February 8||N/A||173||N/A|
|Princess Kakyuu||N/A||S. Kakyuu (meaning 'fireball')"Kinmoku" *4|
|Sailor Stars, manga only: Phi, Chi, Lethe, Mnemosyne, and no doubt others which I'm not going to bother looking up.|
* This is a nickname; chibi is Japanese for "short". Her real name is also Usagi. (According to the manga it's "Usagi Small-Lady Serenity". Uh, right. The video game Another Story calls her "Lady Serenity".)
Note: Please do not confuse "Chibi" and "Chiba". I'm really tired of this. Yes, Chiba is her father's name. No, she doesn't get her father's last name.
** Last name "Anderson" used in episode 37. She answers the phone with "Anderson Residence" when she said the equivalent of "Mizuno residence" in the original. (It has been said that she lives in a "mansion". Although the Japanese word "mansion" is a loanword, it's shifted meaning, and doesn't necessarily mean a house, let alone a big house.)
*** The dub keeps "Hino".
*4 Princess Fireball becomes a Sailor Senshi only in the manga. "Kinmokusei" is a Japanese pun on the word for "sweet olive", which explains her scent.
*5 Last name "Shields" in Mixxzine only.
*6 The Irwin toys use "Corinn", "Nerissa", and "Celia" for Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna. Mixx once used "Alex" for Haruka and "Jenny" for Hotaru, but later admitted these were mistakes.
*7 Mixxzine name only.
The double entries are because Pluto, Uranus, and Neptune first appear shadowed, and Chibi-Moon, Saturn, and Chibi-Chibi appear in their normal identities first.
Note that the birthdays are appropriate, astrologically, for the planets.
The Japanese language uses kanji (written characters derived from Chinese) for the Japanese equivalent of root words. The Japanese family names of the Sailor Scouts and Tuxedo Mask all contain the same kanji as the corresponding planet (not necessarily pronounced the same).
The kanji used in the Japanese names of the planets include the five Asian elements (fire, water, wood, metal, earth). The days of the week also include the kanji for the elements, so the days of the week, the planets, and the elements are all somewhat related. (The day of week/planet relationship is the same one that exists in the West.) The Sailor Scouts thus could be considered an elemental-based team if you want to count Tuxedo Mask as the element earth (though Saturn's is usually used for the element).
The Sailor Scouts' special attacks usually fit the kanji associated with the planet. (For instance, the name of the planet Mars uses the kanji for "fire", and Sailor Mars has fire attacks.) Sailor Venus is an exception; she was named early before Takeuchi started the naming pattern. The kanji in her name means "love", associated with the goddess Venus; her later attacks, how- ever, involve gold/metal and the Japanese name for Venus does use the kanji for "gold" or "metal". Sailor Jupiter's early anime attacks are associated with the god Jupiter, but she does have some attacks associated with wood. (Actually, oak is also associated with the god Jupiter).
|Planet, etc.||Day of Week||Kanji Used||Character|
|Mercury||Wednesday||water (element)||Sailor Mercury|
|Venus||Friday||gold (element)||Sailor Venus|
|Earth||--||earth (not the element)||Tuxedo Mask|
|Mars||Tuesday||fire (element)||Sailor Mars|
|Jupiter||Thursday||wood (element)||Sailor Jupiter|
|Saturn||Saturday||earth (element)||Sailor Saturn|
|Uranus||--||heaven king||Sailor Uranus|
|Neptune||--||sea king||Sailor Neptune|
|Pluto||--||dark king||Sailor Pluto|
* It has been suggested to me that Tuxedo Mask is partly associated with the sun, which his birthdate supposedly fits with in astrology. Also, Helios (an obvious sun-based name) from Sailor Moon SS is his protector.
The names for the Sailor Starlights don't fit the same naming pattern as the names of the Senshi from our solar system. Their names are all alternate Japanese pronunciations of the kanji used to mean various types of astronomical light. They translate roughly as "starry night light", "atmospheric light", and "night sky light". And no, "Kou" is not their family name, and they're not siblings.
Ages and grades:
Unfortunately, a bit complicated. (Note: I am using the notation 'age 14-15' to mean starting the school year at 14 and having their 15th birthday before the next school year).
First, note that in Japan it is possible to count your age as being 1 year old when you are born, which would be 1 greater than in the West. But this is an old custom and isn't done much nowadays. It also doesn't fit the information we've seen.
In Japan, junior high goes up to grade 9, and high school is 10-12. In the US, junior high goes to either 8 or 9, depending on the local school system.
In the Japanese version, the main five characters start at age 14, in second year junior high (grade 8). They actually have to be 13-14 for things to work out right later on.
The first two years in the manga only occur during one story year. In the anime, there are hints that they lose a year after the Dark Kingdom battle.
Assuming that they lost a year after the battle with the Dark Kingdom, the the anime happens in real time up to the end of Sailor Moon S. Sailor Moon has her 15th birthday in Japanese episode 101 in Sailor Moon S, which was aired near her birthday in real time, so as of Sailor Moon S, they are 14-15 and in grade 9.
In the next season (SuperS), they enter high school--in the manga only. The scene of them entering high school does not appear in the anime until the start of Sailor Stars, but Naoko Takeuchi has stated (manga #12) that this was an error, and they _are_ supposed to be in high school during SuperS. This makes them age 15-16 and grade 10 during SuperS.
Sailor Moon says she is 16 in the last episode. This means that Sailor Stars cannot possibly happen in real time, although they _might_ be in grade 11 if only a few months of the school year have passed.
Sailor Uranus and Neptune were born in the same year as the main five, but before April, when the school year starts. So they're one school year ahead of the others (15-16/grade 10 in Sailor Moon S, etc.)
Tuxedo Mask's age is not simple. In the manga, he starts in second year high school, where he would be 3 years older than Usagi, and thus age 16-17 while Usagi is 13-14. (You can bump Usagi up to age 14-15, and Tuxedo Mask to 17-18, but this causes problems: first, it means college freshmen are 19-20; second, if it applies to the anime, episodes 51-101 would have to happen in under 3 months total; third, Usagi keeps saying she's 14 even after her 15th birthday would have passed around episode 16, which was aired near her birthday in real life.)
In the TV series, Tuxedo Mask starts in college. He also goes to America for college in Sailor Stars; I haven't yet heard of any explanation for this. He must be at least age 18-19 at the start of the series.
Sailor Pluto is in her first year in college in the manga corresponding to S. In the anime, she has not been reincarnated and is thousands of years old.
Rini (Chibi-Usa) is 902 in the manga corresponding to the end of S. The "explanation" is that she is the first half-human, half-Silver-Millennium person so there are a lot of unknowns. (This implies that Usagi is not an Earth human even after being reincarnated. The closest the manga comes to saying that she is one is when Queen Serenity calls her a normal girl.) She was born when Usagi was 22, so she was born June 30, 2002 or 2003.
In the anime, the Senshi are called Earth humans, and Rini's age is not given, which means she's probably really her apparent age (not counting any years in suspended animation).
Sailor Saturn goes to the same school as Uranus and Neptune, but this doesn't mean she is as old as them, since sometimes schools combine many different grades. She is also supposed to be small and weak, which plays havoc with at- tempts to guess her age from her appearance. In the manga, she starts in 6th grade, so would be 11-12 as of S. (Note: she is deaged during SS.)
The Sailor Stars are stated to be age 16, and are in the same class with the others.
If Usagi doesn't round birthdays up, she cannot say she is 16 in the last episode unless it happens before her 17th birthday. Then the latest the series can end is 11th grade, June 29 (when Mars and Star Maker are a year older than above). The early limit would be 10th grade, after September 28 (the date is mentioned in episode 189), when everyone except Mars, Mercury, Star Fighter, Star Maker, Moon, and Chibi-Moon are a year younger than above.
If Usagi rounds birthdays up, then Sailor Stars is slower than realtime and the last episode must take place before she is 16 1/2 (10th grade, end of December). Then the latest the series can end is 10th grade, end of December (when Star Healer, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are a year younger than above), and the earliest is 10th grade, after September 28, when everyone except Mars, Mercury, Star Fighter, Star Maker, Moon, and Chibi-Moon are a year younger than above.
Note that if you believe the first episode is aired in real time, Usagi must be rounding birthdays up. Also, she says she'll write one letter a day to Mamoru and writes her 30th letter in #182, which pretty much shows the series is slower than realtime.
The dub contradicts itself in the first Alan/Ann episode. That episode places Alan (Earl) in grade 10 (instead of 9) and Ann and Serena in grade 9 (instead of 8), and calls it high school (instead of junior high). Fans have guessed that this is a pilot episode, and I wouldn't take it too seriously. The error is repeated later at least once.
The dubbed episode 15 has a mistake which put Serena's brother in Crossroads Junior High too, which is ridiculous.
Note: The main characters exist in the present because they are reincarnated (a word which the dub refuses to use). However, reincarnation is unrelated to why they are still alive 1000 years in the future. The anime explains (ep- isode 83) that everyone on Earth fell into suspended animation because of some catastrophe and Neo-Queen Serenity restored them in the future. (It isn't stated whether Usagi or Chibi-Usa were in suspended animation too.) In the manga, V5 says they lived 1000 years because of the Silver Crystal, which gave "almost" everyone long life. (Queen Beryl also says in V3 that she can get immortality from the Silver Crystal.) Also, the Silver Millennium family's lifespan is 1000 years (which doesn't quite fit).
Sailor Venus's magical cat. In the manga (only) comes from planet Mau.
Serena's boyfriend, and Tuxedo Mask. I listed him above, but must point out another DIC screwup. His name as a prince is originally Endymion; this is taken from mythology, where Selene loved Endymion. It was different from his regular name, Mamoru. Changing both to Darien not only re- moves the reference, but causes two problems: First, when he's under the con- trol of the Negaverse, Serena asks him to remember the name Darien--he claims never to have heard the name "Darien" before, but he's calling himself Prince Darien at the time! Second, Rini knows that her parents are Serena and Darien and manages not to figure out that the Serena and Darien of the 20th century are the same people (because the names weren't _really_ the same in the original).
Serena's younger brother.
Molly Baker (Osaka Naru):
Serena's best friend. She gets attacked by monsters an awful lot. :-)
Andrew (Furuhata Motoki):
Darien's friend; runs the video arcade where everyone hangs out. Andrew's family owns the arcade (manga only).
Lizzie (Furuhata Unazuki):
Andrew's sister. Miraculously, the dub of the later seasons remembered her name and called her Elizabeth, but forgot that Andrew was supposed to be her brother...
Melvin (Gurio Umino):
Classmate of Serena and Molly.
Ms. Patricia Haruna (Haruna Sakurada):
Serena's teacher. (Switched last name for first name and mispronounced it.)
Sailor Moon's parents (Ikuko and Kenji).
Sailor Mars' grandfather.
[Spoiler warning for SuperS]
A cat whose parents are Luna and Artemis. Doesn't show up until Sailor Moon SS.
[Spoiler warning for Sailor Stars]
girl apparently younger than Chibi-Usa, with unknown background (until the end of Sailor Stars).
Some of these supporting characters fade into the background after a while.
Many villains are named after various gems and minerals. The dub has an odd mixture of recognizing that they are mineral names (renaming Kunzite to Malachite had to be done by someone who _knows_) and total cluelessness as to the source of the names (Nephrite is called "Neflyte" in the dub, for instance).
Sailor Moon: Queen Beryl*, Jadeite*, Nephrite*, Zoisite*, Kunzite* (Malachite* in the dub), Queen Metallia (Negaforce in the dub). There are several guesses about why Kunzite was changed; I've heard that it was changed for legal reasons since it was named after a living person, but I haven't seen that confirmed.
Sailor Moon R, part 1: Earl/Ail/Eeru (Alan in the dub) and Ann(e). Their names seem to be a pun on "alien". I won't get into the debate of how to spell Earl's name. In the original, Earl and Ann use _different_ names (Ginga Seijuurou and Ginga Natsumi; ginga means "galaxy" or "Milky Way" and was [mis]translated in the dub as "Granger") in school, while keeping the names Earl and Ann as villains, so Sailor Moon has less of a reason to think they're the same people.
Sailor Moon R, part 2: Kooan** (kermesite; the name of this mineral in Japanese is kooankou) (Catzy in the dub), Beruche***/Berthier** (berthierite) (Bertie in the dub, though it's obviously really meant as Birdy), Calaveras** (calaverite) (Avery in the dub), Petz** (petzite) (Prizma in the dub) (these four aren't guesses, but are from the Japanese merchandise.), Rubeus*** (Latin for 'red'; I don't know if it directly means 'ruby' in any language) (Rubbeus in the dub), Esmeraude*** (old French for 'emerald'), Saphir*** (French for 'sapphire') Demand*** (old German for 'diamond'), Black Lady, Wiseman.
Note: The name Berthier is French, and "Berthier" would be the correct spelling in Roman letters (with the closest kana being 'beruche') but the Japanese apparently do use the Roman letters "Beruche" on their merchandise.
Sailor Moon S: Professor Tomoe, Kaolinite*, Eudial** (eudialyte), Mimete** (mimetite) (Mimet in the dub), Tellu** (tellurite), Viluy** (viluite), Cyprine* (shown in the manga V8 page 77), Ptilol** (ptilolite) Mistress 9, Pharaoh 90. Villiaumite, sapphirine, and puchirite are not correct.
Sailor Moon SS: Zirconia*, Hawk's Eye*, Fish Eye*, Tiger's Eye*, CereCere, PallaPalla, JunJun, VesVes (named after the first four asteroids, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta). "Nephelenia" would be the proper spelling if she is named after the mineral nepheline, but there is a theory that she is named after the goddess Nehellenia.
Sailor Moon Sailor Stars: Galaxia, Iron Mouse, Aluminum Siren, Lead Crow, Tin Nyanko. (And Heavy Metal Papillon in the manga). They actually use "Seiren" for "siren", which is derived from Greek.
The following lists some early, unused, Sailor Moon US names.
The first version was announced soon after Sailor Moon's US release was announced. The second version appeared on the English Kodansha WWW site (Kodansha published the Japanese comic) and the third is the DIC dub version.
|Identity||Japanese Name||First||Kodansha||DIC dub|
|Sailor Moon||Tsukino Usagi||Victoria||Celeste||Serena|
|Tuxedo Mask||Chiba Mamoru||?||Mark||Darien|
|Sailor Mars||Hino Rei||Dana||Rae||Raye|
|Sailor Mercury||Mizuno Ami||Blue||Amy||Amy|
|Sailor Jupiter||Kino Makoto||Sara||Maggie||Lita|
|Sailor Venus||Aino Minako||Kari||Monica||Mina|
2. The name "Serena" is obviously derived from Usagi's Japanese name as a princess, which can be spelled "Selenity" or "Serenity". In Japanese, there is no distinction between the sounds "l" and "r", and the name has two ori- gins. The first is the reference to the Sea of Serenity on the moon, where the moon palace was located (manga volume 3). The second is to the moon goddess Selene. Japanese merchandise that uses Roman letters spells it with an "r".
In the original version, Usagi's regular name wasn't the same as her name
as a princess. On the other hand, in it her mother on the moon was also
named Serenity, giving her mother and her the same name. (So the original
has Queen Serenity and Usagi/Princess Serenity, while the dub has Queen
Serenity and Serena/Princess Serena).
3. Before even the first set of names was announced there was a rumor that Usagi was going to be named Darrien.
4. "Minako" is a Japanese pun, sort of. "Mi" and "ko" can also be pronounced as "Bi" and "su", making it "Binasu", a Japanese pronunciation of "Venus".
The "no" in most of the names is a pun. It literally means "field", but is pronounced the same as the word "no" meaning "of", so the names sound like they mean "<name> of <planet/element>". ("no" works backwards compared to the English "of".)
Sailor Mars' anti-spirit attack,
originally the "Makaiju". (Ma=evil/magic, kai=world/land, ju=tree).
Everyone high school-aged except for Mars goes here after the end of S. (Having them enter high school at the start of Sailor Stars was a mistake--stated so by Naoko--and they should be in high school during SS and were in the manga. Uranus and Neptune also go here [shown only in the manga] because Mugen Gakuen was destroyed.)

* Shabon translates to "soap" or "soap bubbles". The Japanese word apparently comes from Portuguese, so it could also be spelled "Shabao". The Sailor Moon SuperS movie memorial book spells it as "Shabao".
** meaning "Luna-P, transform".
*** First episode chronologically, and first one aired, respectively (the episodes were aired out of order).
*4 Also translated to "Cosmic Moon Power" in the dub when used as a powerful attack in the last few episodes of the first series.
*5 Her manga attack is "Death Reborn Revolution". It is possibly a pun on "ribbon" (though contrary to earlier versions of this FAQ, the katakana for "ribbon" and "reborn" are not the same). It really is "Death Ribbon Revolution" in the guide to the Another Story game and in some other games.
*6 First used in #128 but named and fully shown in #130.
*7 First used in #168 but named and fully shown in #173.
*8 One fansub translates this as "Crystal Attack" It's really badly pronounced and sort of sounds like "Crystal Attack", but it's not. The SuperS movie memorial album even has it as "Space Sword Blaster" in English.
*9 Yes, it's "Love Me". It's in English in the Sailor Moon SuperS movie book, as well as being a manga attack with katakana that can be read as "Love Me" but not as "Lovely". No, I don't care what your VKLL sub says.
Serena's original speech was "For love and justice, I am the pretty sailor-suited soldier Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I will punish you!" It often follows a more episode-specific speech, and is sometimes parodied (for instance, the teaser for the episode with the priest had "in the name of God, I will punish you!")
The dub, obviously, can't use it all because "Pretty Soldier" isn't in the English show name. The dub speech started as "I am Sailor Moon, champion of justice! On behalf of the moon, I will right wrongs and triumph over evil, and that means you!" It later did use "In the name of the moon, I will punish you!", usually (but not always) when there were few other changes to the scripts.
The dub sometimes rewrites the speech such that it looks like Serena is introducing herself several times in a row. If you were puzzled by this, well, now you know who to blame.
