Sailor Uranus is one of the four Outer Senshi of the Solar System, and was the eighth Sailor Senshi to be introduced in the manga. Her civilian identity is Haruka Tenou. Her attacks are based around the sky, precognition, and powers granted by her sword. This is the original depiction of the character created by Naoko Takeuchi.
Her dominant color was navy blue (tiara gem, her collar, choker, gloves, back waist bow, skirt and boots) and her accent color was yellow (front bow). She wore one single gold hoop earring on her left ear (in the manga, she wore a second one on her right ear), her collar had no stripes, her choker had no gems attached to it, her shoulder pads were normal, and her gloves were wrist-length. Her shoes were lace up loose navy blue boots. In the manga, her brooch changed from a circle to a heart when Sailor Moon first transformed into Super Sailor Moon.
She gained a second gold hoop earring, her choker had a star attached to it, her collar had one white stripe, the center of her front bow became a heart, she had one translucent shoulder pad, and the back waist bow was enlarged and lengthened. The length of her gloves remained the same.
Her choker was V-shaped and the center of her front bow as a navy five-pointed star. She had round light blue puffed sleeves with two strips of navy fabric attached to the bottom. Her gloves became longer, reaching to her upper arms. Her belt consisted of two blue ribbons, one light and one dark, with two long, thin back ribbons, clipped together by a golden five-pointed star. Her back bow was light blue. Her skirt became two-layered, the top layer being navy and the bottom light blue. Her boots were knee-high and white, and each had a navy V-shaped border with a five-pointed star at the top. Her tiara gem was a navy five-pointed star and her earrings were navy, dangling five-pointed stars.
This form only appears in the manga.
During the Silver Millennium, Sailor Uranus was a Princess of her home planet and wore a deep blue gown with ribbons down the back and a choker on her neck. As a Princess it was her duty to protect the solar system from an outside invasion. This form is seen only in the manga in Act 41 and in secondary art pieces along with the other Princesses.</span>
Attacks and Weapons
Sailor Uranus' character was not developed until partway through the Sailor Moon series, after the other Guardian Senshi had already been established. Early designs for Sailor Uranus showed her being softer and more feminine than she would later become. Sailor Uranus is relatively androgynous in the manga. As seen in early drawings Sailor Uranus' Space Sword was drawn with a straight blade, rather than the one seen in both the manga and anime with a slight curve to the tip.
- Uranus is the Greek god of the sky.
- When Sailor Uranus and Sailor Jupiter got into a physical confrontation, Uranus defeated Jupiter easily. However, while escaping, she discovers that her arm had been bruised from blocking Jupiter's attack and, as such, possibly considers her a potential worthy opponent.
- She is one of the three Outer Senshi who posses one of the Talismans needed to summon the Holy Grail and awaken Sailor Saturn.
- In her civilian form, it possible that Sailor Uranus has some psychic abilities, although whether or not they are as powerful as those of Sailor Neptune or Sailor Mars is questionable.
- Her name is pronounced Yuh-ruh-nus in English. Although this is an actual enunciation for the planet's name, it could have possibly been used to avoid jokes or contreversy around the Yu-ray-nus enunciation (as it sounds suggestive.)
