TRIVIA

  • The production staff referred to Dark Mercury’s civilian form as “Akumi” (悪美), which can be translated to mean “evil beauty.” They also referred to Dark Mercury as “Darkury” (ダーキュリー) on set. The nickname was never actually used in the show, though.
  • Dark Mercury’s weapon was originally going to be a harp-like bow and arrow. However, a last minute decision changed it to the Dark Sword. The harp bow was modified to become Zoisite’s knife.
  • Dark Mercury was unique to the live-action series. However, Sailor Galaxia did turn Mercury and the other Sailor Senshi against Sailor Moon in the manga. During the Black Moon arc of the first anime, the droid Giwaku tried to make Sailor Mercury attack her friends, but her plan was unsuccessful.
Sailor Moon Appreciation Month: Day 22/Favorite Transformation

Dark Mercury’s transformation is wicked: the details on her suit are amazing. Feathered bow with something like snakeskin. Her chain padlock belt. Her spiky leather boots. The tiara is stunning. But mostly, it is the attitude in her eyes. This character has transformed into someone else entirely, which is why I think it is one of the best.

I also think PGSM Princess Sailor Moon is also amazing.
