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.
Remembering Robert Donat on his birthday (18 March 1905 -9 June 1958). He won the Best Actor Oscar for Goodbye, Mr Chips, 1939. He is seen here in a screencap from The 39 Steps (Alfred Hitchcock, 1935)
“His tragedy was that the promise of his early years was never fulfilled and that he was haunted by agonies of doubt and disappointment” - David Shipman
I was watching episode 39, with Kunzite’s ice-skating plan. And I recalled one of sdklr’s post about how Kunzite’s death scene was by his own doing so he could rejoin Zoisite, because, due to his own immense power, “only Kunzite could kill Kunzite”, (short of Beryl, I imagine).
I think it’s pretty much everyone’s headcanon that his death scene was by his own doing. BUT LOOK.
LOOK WHAT HE’S DOING HERE, AS EARLY AS 5 EPISODES BEFORE HIS DEATH EPISODE.
He’s trying to kill Endymion under the guise of an accident. Just like what his lover did.The thing his lover did that got him killed by Beryl.
Kunzite’s not a moron. He knows he’d get killed for that kind of thing, Silver Crystal be damned. But as early as this episode, he doesn’t care. He’s trying to get killed by Beryl the same way she killed Zoisite.
As early as this episode, Kunzite wanted to be re-united with his beloved in death.
