First Appearances



  • This is the second time a monster-of-the-day is defeated by someone other than Sailor Moon in Sailor Moon S. In this episode, it is Sailor Jupiter that destroys the Daimon. The first time in the season was when Sailors Uranus and Neptune destroyed the Daimon in episode 90.
  • We learn that the talismans are a mirror, a sword, and a stone.
  • This episode is the only episode of Sailor Moon S to have two monsters-of-the day, despite the fact that the first one to appear, Irondar, only appears in a flashback at the beginning of the episode.
  • The name of the dubbed episode might be a reference to the song "People" by Barbra Streisand.
  • Chibiusa stows away on the train with the other girls, but never appears again for the rest of the episode, nor does she return to participate in the battle.
