Sailor Mars first used Burning Mandala, while fighting Koan. Unlike her previous attack Fire Soul, Burning Mandala proved powerful enough to overwhelm Koan's Dark Fire. To perform this attack, Sailor Mars moved her hand in a circular motion around her body, creating a ring of fire. The ring then turned into eight smaller rings that flew toward the enemy.

Almost defeated, Sailor Mars tries one last ditch effort to defeat [[Metalia_Endymion]] and stands up.

Video games

This attack appeared in several video games:

  • In Sailor Moon R for Super Famicon; it was powerful, and could easily destroy the enemies around it, however it could be only used rarely.
  • In the arcade game Sailor Moon; Sailor Mars requires four crystals to fully perform this attack, in full screen, Sailor Mars would call Mars to give her power, and suddenly release fire.
  • In Sailor Moon: Another Story; Sailor Mars created a circle of fire which resulted onto seperating into eight fire rings which attacked the enemies.

Trivia

  • In the English manga (both Mixx/TokyoPop and Kodansha), the attack retains its original name. In the English dub of the anime, the attack was called by various names. The attack names were: Mars Celestial Fire Surround, Mars Fire Surround, Celestial Fire Surround, and Mega Mars Fire Rings Flash.
  • The word "Mandala" is a Buddhist term imported from China, though the religion originated from India.
  • The Mandala is used in meditation. Before a person can reach enlightenment, they must pass through the outermost circle of the Mandala, purifying fire, the fire of wisdom. At the center is a symbol of the Buddha, surrounded by the eight corners of the Earth (West, Northwest, North, Northeast, East, Southeast, South, and Southwest). Together the symbols make a lotus shape. The eight symbols that appear in the fire circles, before Sailor Mars shoots them at her enemy, are Buddhist symbols which stand for the eight corners of the world.
  • A mandala is a geometric pattern that can symbolize the universe. Sailor Mars' mandala appears to be a traditional Vajrayana Buddhism mandala.
