In the English dub, Sailor Pluto sometimes said the phrase “Pluto Star Power” to transform.
Despite that Sailor Pluto upgraded to her “Super” form in Sailor Moon Sailor Stars, a new transformation sequence was never shown.
Sailor Pluto’s title as the “Soldier of Space-Time” is appropriate as a column of sand can be seen surrounding her during her transformation sequence. It could also be a reference to the sands of time or an hourglass.

This transformation sequence was altered in television airings of the Cloverway dub: the scenes were lightened and the body lines were erased.

There was a new animation sequence for the ending credits, and it was accompanied by the new song “Otome no Susume” (A Maiden’s Advice). The title could be a reference to Sailor Moon R’s ending song “Otome no Policy.”
