Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S: Brawl!? Champion Battle (美少女戦士セーラームーンS: 場外乱闘！？主役争奪戦 / Sailor Moon S: Jougai Rantou!? Shuyaku Soudatsusen) is a video game released for the Nintendo Super Famicom by Angel (Bandai) on December 16, 1994.
In the game, two Sailor Senshi fight each other using both basic physical and special attacks. Each Senshi has their own set of attacks, some of which are invented exclusively for the game. All of the Solar System Senshi, with the exception of Sailor Saturn, are playable characters.
There are four modes in the game: practice, tournament, versus, and story mode. In each mode, the basic gameplay is the same. In versus and story mode, the player can customize the abilities of the chosen Senshi by allocating points among six abilities. (See Ability Customization System)
- Practice Mode - In Practice mode, the players can practice their attacks with no counted damage.
- Tournament Mode - Eight players fight in a knock-out styled tournament, with 1-8 players being human and the others being CPU.
- Versus Mode - The player can fight one against another player or a CPU player. The player chooses which Sailor Guardian should fight. It is possible to select the same Sailor Guardian; in this case, one of Sailor Guardians' sailor uniform colors would be altered.
- Story Mode - In Story Mode, the plot involves the Sailor Senshi fighting to become the new leader. In this mode, only the Inner Sailor Senshi and Sailor Chibi Moon are playable characters. The player has to defeat the other eight normally playable Sailor Senshi to win in this mode. If the player succeeds, the title screen changes to display the silhouette and the name of the victorious Sailor Senshi. Tuxedo Mask appears in the "Continue" screen if the player loses.
