Fridge Brilliance[edit | hide | hide all]

  • Why do Ail and An act like such jerkasses, dragging themselves into a plot that could have been avoided immediately after arriving on Earth? Why, because not only are they the last of their kind, but they matured after the rest of their species already died out. Heck, they didn't even know their own cultural legacy, and thought the Doom Tree was just an energy source. Growing up alone, they never had a chance to socialize and empathize with anyone except themselves until they met the Sailors.
    • Doesn't the end of the arc stop the battle and explain all that right there in the episode? I know it did in the dub.
  • The Mind Screw ending to the anime of Sailor Stars, the final season of Sailor Moon, tends to be confusing as sin if you watch it without guidance. Here is the best User:Danny Lilithborne can do: Sailor Galaxia got corrupted by having Chaos sealed within her, so she sent out her Star Seed, which is like a soul but not quite. Star Seeds can recreate physical bodies, too. Galaxia's Star Seed took the form of Chibi Chibi who, never being really human, was a little girl who could only repeat what other people said for awhile. When the final battle came and the Senshi all died or surrendered to Galaxia, Chibi Chibi used her considerable power to give Sailor Moon a power boost. But even that wasn't enough as Sailor Moon realized that Galaxia had the same loneliness as her, mirroring their final battle in the manga. Finally, Galaxia shattered the Silver Moon Crystal, fulfilling Chaos' goals. In desperation, Galaxia's soul, which was asleep but not yet extinguished, got back in touch with her Star Seed, and this power was able to give Sailor Moon the strength to keep fighting. However, Galaxia insisted the only answer was to kill her with the Sword of Sealing, the weapon which Galaxia initially used to seal Chaos, which Eternal Sailor Moon refused to do. She instead reached out to touch Galaxia, whose own image of the Sword shattered. ESM's strength of will to save Galaxia is what reversed Galaxia's actions. Once that happened, the Star Seeds regained their power, and Usagi's friends were restored. The ending was probably meant to be a 'it makes sense if your heart is true' kind of thing, though.
    • I haven't actually finished the Stars season of the anime, but what I gleaned from the manga was that Chibi Chibi was actually Sailor Cosmos--Sailor Moon from the far, far future, beyond Crystal Tokyo even, who had gone back in time to destroy Chaos when she (as Sailor Moon) had the chance, instead of waiting for it to get as bad as it would in the future. But to do that would have destroyed not only Chaos, but any chance of Sailor Moon's friends star seeds getting returned to them, so SM Took a Third Option. Although now that I think about it, the whole damn thing was so confusing I could be completely misremembering, it's been a while since I read the manga. xD
      • They had different explanations for who Chibi Chibi was in the anime and the manga.
    • From reading over the manga again, I found that Chibi Chibi was actually the reincarnation of Sailor Moon, given that she 1. does not look exactly like Usagi nor Serenity 2. Sailor Moon tells Chibi Chibi just before the former jumps into the Cauldron and the latter becomes Cosmos that they shouldn't give up hope, making Cosmos wish to return to the future to fight Chaos again. 3. Cosmos states that "Like Eternal Sailor Moon did, once I receive the power to lose and save everything...that is when I truly become Sailor Cosmos." The implication being that Moon and Cosmos are separate people but the same, as she calls Sailor Moon "my self here [in the past]." Also a new cauldron would form after the old one was destroyed, as stated by Chibi Chibi in chapter 51, so the dead senshi would probably still have a chance at rebirth, if nothing else.
  • In the manga, while fighting the Amazoness Quartet, Saturn repeatedly tells them to wake up. They nearly join her before being trapped in stones by Zirconia. Later on, she rescues the stones and prompts Princess Serenity to use her powers to free them, revealing Sailor Senshi. The themes sleep, dreams, and nightmares were constantly used throughout the Super S arc, to the point where the Dead Moon Circus has been defeated and one character states that "the long nightmare is finally over". However when a Sailor Senshi comes in to her power she is refered to as having AWAKENED! Saturn wasn't just telling the quartet to free themselves from the control of the Dead Moon Circus, she was telling them to become their senshi selves!
  • The Saturn symbol (♄) looks like the letter "h", the first letter in Hotaru's name in Latin script. Probably a coincidence, though.
    • You could even say it's a "t" and an "h" for Tomoe Hotaru. And Sailor Jupiter's symbol looks sort of like a 4, and she was the fourth soldier found!
  • As a Senshi assigned to protect Chibi Moon and an equivalent to the Sailor team, Cere Cere's hair and eye color -- pink and red, respectively -- make sense. Why? Because she resembles Chibi Moon to the same extent that Sailor Venus resembles Sailor Moon.
  • According to the Engish Dub 'Full Moon Collection' Music CD, the singers of the English Sailor Moon theme were credited as "Sailor Venus" and "Chibiusa",.....when you think about it, considering how much more of a ditz the Dub made Mina, that explains SO MUCH about the 'Never running from a real fight' line...it also makes sense that since she was never given a love interest in the Dic dub that she would sing about Sailor Moon. Also In the Dic dub, she always mention about 'Serena' and was the most nicest and seemed to had the most faith in her.
  • In one anime episode we find out that Minako is quite fluent in English, possibly even more than Ami, but can't talk with the English gentlemen at a party. At first it's strange... Then you remember she has lived in London for a while and stayed with the police, but not the higher-class Englishmen. She just had nothing to speak of with the gentlemen at the party, while Ami, being of an higher social class, had it (and Rei too, probably, but she wasn't as fluent as the other two).

Fridge Horror[edit | hide]

  • Usagi has less government experience than Sarah Palin in 2008 when she becomes Neo-Queen Serenity. And Usagi was a terrible student. Can't you just imagine her trying to respond to questions about foreign policy or what she thought about certain branches of scientific research?
    • Usagi's not so much a terrible student as much as she's just not really motivated to do schoolwork. She is a bit of an airhead, but nowhere does it show that she is outright stupid. In both the manga and the anime, it is implied that she becomes Neo-Queen Serenity after having matured quite a bit. In addition, foreign policy isn't exactly an issue when the entire world is at peace (the population of Nemesis notwithstanding). And as far as scientific research is concerned, while she may not be an expert on the finer details, she'd probably understand the basic concepts and get any further assistance from Ami and/or Mamoru.
  • Okay, so anyone who has read the Sailor Moon manga should know that it contains two scenes involving graphic deaths (of the HEROES) reminiscent to the famous face melting scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The instance in which Usagi/the Senshi "die" from an enemy attack in the SuperS arc was, undoubtedly, a nightmare. While Mamoru's face-melting in the first arc initially appears to be a nightmare, since we see Usagi roused from her sleep, crying at the thought of his death, one of the Four Generals earlier had recalled that when they sold their souls to the Dark Kingdom, their "flesh was changed." In other words, Mamoru's horrific decay might have ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
    • From what is known of their future, they have gained immortality which brings several problems to mind. Since all the inhabitants that were there at the time also gained immortality (save for newborns), there could very well be a birth control policy even stricter than the one of China to avoid overpopulation and shortage of food. If not, this could even lead to an even greater degree of war and murder from extremists to regulate population's growth (Which in the end, could make it even worse than how the villains wanted to make Crystal Tokyo)... So much for an utopian Crystal Tokyo.
      • Not exactly... It is possible that only the queen, king, senshi, etc. only gained immortality. If the civilians have gained immortality then it is possible that Neo Queen Serenity already knew something like population control could be a problem, and using the power of the Silver Crystal, made endless amounts of food and land to avoid overpopulation so everyone could have all of the space and food they needed to survive. Or, it could be like how it was during the Silver Millinium and everyone (except for the queen, senshi, king, etc.) just lives long lives but end up dying of old age eventually.
      • The manga states that the influence of the Silver Crystal has spread across the entire planet and that the general lifespan of every human is around 1000 years. So it's more likely that the habitants of earth now live much longer than before but will eventually die.
  • In the Stars Season, Eternal Sailor Moon used her Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss on Sailor Tin Nyanko which destroyed one of Galaxia's Bracelets but the other still intact thus cutting the evil in half of Tin Nyanko's body. Galaxia pointed out that people who serve her gets their star seeds taken but with her bracelets, that servant can still live on. Galaxia killed Sailor Iron Mouse and Sailor Aluminum Siren via removal of their bracelets thus the Sailor Animamates dying. So if Sailor Moon succeeded in removing the other bracelet from Tin Nyanko, she basically could've been responsible for the death of Tin Nyanko. This would have caused endless lulz for Galaxia.
  • Unlikely- as Usagi healed Tin Nyanko, much like she did the Monsters of the Week. So, IF Usagi had fully purified Nyanko, she may have just reverted to a civilian form, or become a truly good Sailor Soldier once again. Sailor Mau would've been a decent ally too...
  • Speaking of healing the Monster of the Week, do people who are healed from that state keep the memories of what they did while they were transformed? Were they in there the whole time, unable to do or say anything? Possible Fridge Logic, do they pay for the damages they cause? What are the legalities concerning damage caused by monster possession? Maybe I'm looking too far into this...
