OTHER VERSIONS

  • Cloverway’s English dub (titled “The Sweetest Dream”):

    It was shown that Zirconia was a reflection of Queen Nehelenia, or a physical manifestation of her fear of aging. Yet some fans believe this theory conflicts with the English story’s decision to make Zirconia male.

[HENSHIN] Moon Crisis Make Up.

Series: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Kana: ムーン・クライシス・メイク・アップ
Romaji: Muun Kuraishisu Meiku Appu

Users: Usagi Tsukino, Chibiusa
Items required: Crisis Moon Compact, Chibi Moon Compact
Used to become: Super Sailor Moon, Super Sailor Chibimoon
First appearance: Episode 130

[ATTACK] Moon Gorgeous Meditation.

Series: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Kana: ムーン・ゴージャス・メディテーション
Romaji: Muun Goojasu Mediteeshon

Users: Super Sailor Moon, Double Moon (episodes 128-129, SuperS movie)
Item required: Kaleidomoon Scope
First appearance: Episode 128
Last appearance: Episode 162

TRIVIA

  • Sailor Moon could not perform this attack unless Pegasus was present. Well aware of this in episode 143, Fisheye had had his lemures create an energy dome to prevent Pegasus from lending his power to Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibimoon. While Double Moon did execute Moon Gorgeous Meditation in the SuperS movie without the aid of Pegasus, some fans do not consider the film’s events to be canon.
  • An abbreviated version of this attack appeared in episodes 128 and 129. Sailor Moon did not use the vocal call until episode 130, though.
  • This technique was highly successful in terms of defeating an enemy. The only time Moon Gorgeous Meditation ever failed was in episode 162, and that was because Zirconia neutralized it.
