  • This was the first time Sailor Galaxia's human form was shown.
  • The full animation sequence for Fighter Star Power, Make Up was featured for the first time in the anime.
  • In the rain scene where Usagi was crying over her missing boyfriend, Mamoru. She recognizes the red rose that Seiya threw on Sailor Tin Nyanko when he rescues her from becoming a victim.
  • Tuxedo Mask appears in a silhouette when Eternal Sailor Moon is in danger but the silhouette turns out to be Seiya who threw the red rose on Sailor Tin Nyanko while handing his red formal jacket before transforming into Sailor Star Fighter.
