She then throws the scroll at the target. In the anime, this stops the target's movement long enough for another attack to be used to destroy it. In the manga, it simply disintegrates the enemy.

Alan [Minako's friend]
Alan [alien] -- one of the two aliens in Sailor Moon R. He and Ann were only in the anime, never in the manga, created so that the manga could catch up to the anime. To survive, they have to collect energy for the Doom Tree, their 'tree of life'. If the tree dies, they will die. They collect energy with Cardians, which are selected with sort of Tarot cards by Ann and summoned by Alan with his flute. They are the last two of their species... the tree began to die, and because the tree, which created them, began to die, so did the aliens. The Elders collected the energy that was left and sealed Alan and Ann into protective bubbles, sending them into space with what was left of the Tree in the hopes that they would find a place to live where the tree could be fed. They came to Earth to collect energy, as they've sapped energy from all of the other planets, and disguised themselves as human exchange students at Crossroads Junior High School, as brother and sister. Because the tree is a reflection of the energy it is given, when Alan and Ann took the energy forcibly, the tree grew evil and reacted violently, then transmitted this evil energy to Alan and Ann - creating a vicious cycle. In the end, the two aliens discover that what the Doom actually needs is love energy, and they see the error of their ways and their love for each other. They take what remains of the Tree into space to help it grow again. In the Japanese original, Alan is called Ail most commonly, but sometimes Eil or Eiru. It is most appropriate to use the name Al.
Alan Granger -- the name that the alien Alan uses in his human form in the DiC dub. He and his sister Ann use this human form to disguise themselves as foreign exchange students at Crossroads Junior High School, where Serena, Amy, and Lita attend school. Alan, like his sister Ann, is only in the anime. To survive, they have to collect energy for the Doom Tree, their "tree of life." If the tree dies, they will die. They collect energy with Cardians, which are selected with a sort of Tarot card by Ann and summoned by Alan with his flute. They are the last two of their species... the tree began to die, and because the tree, which created them, began to die, so did the aliens. The Elders collected the energy that was left and sealed Alan and Ann into protective bubbles, sending them into space with what was left of the Tree in the hopes that they would find a place to live where the tree could be fed - they found Earth. Because the tree is a reflection of the energy it is given, when Alan and Ann took the energy forcibly, the tree grew evil and reacted violently, then transmitted this evil energy to Alan and Ann - creating a vicious cycle. In the end, the two aliens discover that what the Doom actually needs is love energy, and they see the error of their ways and their love for each other. They take what remains of the Tree into space to help it grow again. In the Japanese original, Alan is called Ail most commonly, but sometimes Eil or Eiru. It is most appropriate to use the name Al. His human form name is Seijuurou Ginga. The Doom Tree is called the Makaiju.

Alisa Yuriko Durbrow
Aluminum Siren -- an incorrect, but VERY WIDELY USED spelling of Aluminum Seiren. "Siren" is the literal meaning of "Seiren," but it is not right to say that the characters are actually saying the English word. The correct spelling has only recently come to be recognized. Please see the entry for Aluminum Seiren for information on this character.
Amanger -- a misspelling of the name Amanju or Aamanju.
Amano Yuri -- Voice actress for Berthier.

These stones hold all of their magic, and they are shot into the backs of victims, causing their dream mirrors to pop out of their chests. They eventually break them, and go on to live normal lives. It is said that they go back to Elysion, the dream world, with Helios, but it is never specifically stated in the anime.
Amazon Trio -- three men who are part of the Dead Moon Circus. Their job is to go in to the dreams of people and find Pegasus, who hides in a person's dreams. They intend to find out who the host is by attacking their victims and looking into their Dream Mirrors. Their goal is to kill their victims if they see nothing in their dream mirrors, thus reducing the number of people whose dreams Pegasus could be hiding in. In their spare time, they hang around in a bar in the main Dead Moon Circus tent, choosing their victims from a pile of photographs of people based on their preferences. Tigers Eye prefers young women for his victims, Hawks Eye prefers older women, and Fish Eye prefers men. The three men were at one time animals, the same ones they were named after. In the anime, they were turned into humans to serve Queen Nehellenia and Zirconia's needs, but in the manga, the Amazones Quartettoto turned them into humans. In the anime, they are killed by Zirconia, but in the manga, the senshi kill each separately.
Amazones Jungle Arrow -- the combined attack of the Sailor Quartetto (sometimes incorrectly called the Asteroid Senshi), Sailor Juno, Sailor Pallas, Sailor Ceres, and Sailor Vesta. They used this attack in Volume 18, Act 49, page 24 to defeat Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon.
Amazones Quartetto -- Four women who work for the Dead Moon Circus. Their names are CereCere, JunJun, PallaPalla (or ParaPara), and VesVes. In the manga, they are the evil forms of the Sailor Quartetto who were prematurely awakened from their slumber in their asteroids by Nehelenia. They are to take Dream Mirrors, and they are responsible for the creation of the Amazon Trio. They are much older than they look, as is Nehelenia, and were raised in the Dead Moon Circus. They are quick to answer questions that remind the senshi of the past. Sailor Moon heals them and they become their true selves, the Sailor Quartetto. In the anime, they become part of the Dead Moon Circus when they were playing in Elysion, the dream world, and Nehelenia came to them in a mirror, telling that for awakening her with their beautiful laughter, she would give them power and the ability to dream forever, never growing old, and turned their dreams into their Amazon stones. They eventually break their Amazon Stones, seeing the error of their ways, and go on to lead normal lives. They may also be called the Amazones Quartet.
Amazoness Quartet -- misnomer for Amazones Quartetto. It is VERY widely used, but still incorrect.
Amethyst Kingdom -- the kingdom that Princess Rubina rules over. Princess Rubina is a "free spirit" who doesn't want to bend the rules of state and diplomacy in her kingdom, so she escapes and comes to Tokyo under the pretense of being a normal girl. She goes to the summer festival, where she meets Usagi and ChibiUsa. She also meets a balloon vendor, and became entranced with the freedom of the balloons. She gives one to a spoiled child, seeing in him the reflection of her youth. She then gives away ALL the balloons, and the vendor becomes angry, yelling at her for having no money. He threatens to get violent, but Hawks Eye, who has chosen her as his dream mirror target, appears and prevents this. He then addresses Rubina as "princess," shocking her because she hasn't revealed her identity to anyone. Sailor Moon, of course, saves her at the last moment. Princess Rubina looks very similar to Haruka.

Her dream is to become a doctor, like her mother. She and her mom live together in an apartment. Amy is very shy and demure, and she embarrasses easily. She was the second scout to be found by Luna. She attended prestigious new cram school (a school where students go after regular school to study for standardized tests), which one of Jedite's plot to steal energy. In the battle between Sailor Moon and Jedite's monster, the mercury symbol appeared on Amy's head, at which point Luna realized she was a Scout. She transformed, and Sailor Mercury used Mercury Bubbles Blast to help Sailor Moon finish the monster off. Sailor Mercury's attacks are based on bubbles, ice, and water. She has a mini computer and a visor that she uses to help the senshi in various ways, and her intellectual skills and level head also contribute to the team. Her voice actress is Karen Bernstein for the first 82 episodes, and Lisa Balkman for the S season. In the Japanese original, her name is Ami Mizuno. Ami does not sound like Amy. Ami is pronounced "Ah-mee". For more information, see: Ami Mizuno, Sailor Mercury.

Heavy Metal Papillon was the Soul Hunter, the final soldier, and was not specified as to have killed another soldier for her position. Each one of the animamates wears Galaxia's bracelets, and if these bracelets are lost, the wearer dies. Heavy Metal Papillon appeared only in the manga.

They collect energy with Cardians, which are selected with a sort of Tarot card by Ann and summoned by Alan with his flute. They are the last two of their species... the tree began to die, and because the tree, which created them, began to die, so did the aliens. The Elders collected the energy that was left and sealed Alan and Ann into protective bubbles, sending them into space with what was left of the Tree in the hopes that they would find a place to live where the tree could be fed - they found Earth. Because the tree is a reflection of the energy it is given, when Alan and Ann took the energy forcibly, the tree grew evil and reacted violently, then transmitted this evil energy to Alan and Ann - creating a vicious cycle. In the end, the two aliens discover that what the Doom actually needs is love energy, and they see the error of their ways and their love for each other. They take what remains of the Tree into space to help it grow again. Ann is very jealous of her brother's infatuation with Serena. In the Japanese original, Ann is known as An, but her name in human form is Natsumi Ginga. Her brother Alan's name is Ail, and in his human form his name is Seijuurou Ginga.

Another Story RPG -- a role playing game made for Super Famicon (Super Nintendo) and its emulator. It was only released in Japan, but there are now fan-made translations of it on the internet for use with emulators. The villains of the game are many of the same villains from the anime up to the Sailor Moon S season, including Professor Tomoe, the Dimension Tree, The DD Girls, and Queen Beryl. There is also a new set of enemies, which were only in the game, called the Oppositio Senshi, led by the Shaman Apsu. The Opposite Senshi are Sin (opposite Moon), Nergal (opposite Mars), Nabu (opposite Mercury), Marduk (opposite Jupiter), and Ishtar (opposite Venus). Shin has a brother named Anshar who seems to have a crush on Chibiusa. The game begins with a long-cut scene showing Queen Serenity and Endymion examining the Ginzuishou. When Usagi awakens one morning, all of the evil from the past has also been reawakened in Tokyo - youma wander the streets, and she must fight one that is trying to eat Naru Osaka and her mother. Sailor Moon gathers the senshi for a meeting, and this is where we find out about the evil Opposite Senshi, who are trying to find the Ginzuishou. The senshi then split up all over the world to find pieces of stones from the Shittenou (Jadeite, Kunzite, Zoisite, and Nephrite). In this part of the game, you must play as each senshi separately. Throughout the course of the game, you find out that the evil senshi are trying to alter their past by stealing the Ginzoushou, because they are convinced that the real senshi are no good. Each of the five evil senshi was heartbroken in some way when their parents or someone else died in the great war that Queen Serenity fought in, and the five evil senshi believe that the real senshi could have done something to save them, but refused. They become bitter and decide to band together under the direction of Lady Apsu, who seems to want the Ginzoushou for herself.

Avery -- one of the four Weird Sisters from Sailor Moon R. She has the power to manipulate the minds of humans. She is closest with her sister Prizma, but the two are almost always at odds, although she is always getting into petty fights with all of her sisters. Like them, she has a passion of jewelry and make-up. Rubeus gave Prizma a staff to use against their sisters who are "traitors" and to find out the identities of the scouts, but Prizma becomes power-crazed and turns on Avery, trying to kill her along with her other sisters and the scouts. Sailor Moon asked if Avery was alright, surprising the villain, and convincing her that her sister was no longer herself. Once the situation is resolved and the stick is destroyed, Sailor Moon healed both Prizma and Avery. The other sisters' names are Bertie and Catsy. The name Avery was used only in the DiC dub. In the Japanese original, her name was Calaveras. She is Sailor Venus's match - she wears orange clothing and a bow in her hair, and even attacks with a whip similar to Sailor Venus's.
