- In Greek mythology, Endymion was the human that the moon goddess Selene fell in love with.
- The unofficial moniker “Dark (Prince) Endymion” is used by fans to help differentiate between the good and evil forms of Endymion throughout the Dark Kingdom arc. In the first anime, he is referred to by everyone as either “(Prince) Endymion” or “Tuxedo Mask.” Under Queen Metalia’s influence in the manga as well as in Sailor Moon Crystal, Mamoru was called “Endou.”
- Endymion disliked Kunzite’s habit of involving innocents in his schemes.
- While Sailor Moon did save Endymion in episode 46, he succumbed to his injuries and died. His body, much like everyone else’s at D Point, was later consumed by the power of the Silver Crystal. However, he was revived without any residual effects from being controlled by the Dark Kingdom.
