"Lemures" (レムレス) are minions of the Dead Moon Circus in the Dream arc of the manga, anime series, and crystal.

Manga

In the manga, Lemures were small, dark, round, and fuzzy creatures that attacked in large groups. They are physical incarnation of nightmares and can be used to trap their victims into dreams and mind-control them. They can also attack and drain their energy. They do not act independently and members of the Dead Moon Circus including the Amazon Trio, Xenotime and Zeolite, and the Amazoness Quartet would call upon them to attack throughout the Dream arc.

Anime

Lemures are the creatures that the Amazon Trio and Amazoness Quartet sent to fight the Sailor Guardians as monsters of the day in the Super S season. Unlike most monsters (with the exception of Eudial's Daimons), they are never directly involved in an evil plan. After a Dream Mirror is extracted, the Lemure is merely summoned to fight the Sailor Guardians whenever they try to interfere. They are summoned from a shadow. All of them were destroyed by Sailor Moon's Moon Gorgeous Meditation.

Lemures often have appearances of things that would appear in a circus, like clowns, jugglers, or even balloons and balls. As the show progresses, the Lemures get goofier and goofier, as pointed out by Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon during the fight with Ponko. The ones who resemble balloons seem to be related to each other.

The Lemures sent by the Amazoness Quartet usually have repeated words in their names (like Garagara and Kerokero), and eat the dream mirrors once they are extracted, usually through an extra mouth on their chest. The mirror would be released unharmed whenever Sailor Moon destroyed them.

When they are destroyed, the Amazon Trio's Lemures cracked into pieces and disappeared, while Amazoness Quartet's Lemures shattered into pieces violently. They would say "Stage Out" before they were destroyed.

It is ultimately revealed that they are the "living ghosts" of the people of Queen Nehellenia, whose dream mirrors were taken by her. They were given to her seemingly willingly, but it is unlikely they knew the cost allowing this.

Trivia

  • They were called "Remless" in the CWi English dub which which is a reference to 'rem' as in REM sleep, the state of sleep a person dreams, and 'less' meaning of course without.
  • Mr. Magic Pierrot is the only Lemures to be summoned by Zirconia.
  • The Lemures seen at the Dead Moon Circus tent are always different from the ones chosen to fight the Sailor Senshi.
  • In episode 158 of the anime, Lemures similar to the ones in the manga are shown chasing Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon after their ages get switched by PallaPalla.
  • All of Fish Eye’s Lemures have spades on there outfits. While Tiger’s Eye’s and Hawk’s Eye’s have diamonds on there’s.
  • Most of the Lemures summoned in the anime shared characteristics depending on who summoned them:
    • While both Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye's Lemures were female, Tiger's Eye's tended to have a more childish and younger appearance and behavior than the ones summoned by Hawk's Eye. This is likely a reference to their preference on targets since Tiger's Eye prefers young women/teenage girls while Hawk's Eye mostly targets mature women.
    • Both Fisheye and JunJun are the only ones of their respective groups to summon male Lemures. Fisheye's, like their teammates, were related to their target preference while JunJun's, like her sister's, had a mouth on their midriffs and all of them had the suffix Dude ("Yarou") on their names.
    • All of VesVes' Lemures had the suffix Girl ("Musume") on their names and were all animal-themed (Most likely a reference of VesVes being a beast tamer at the circus).
    • Both PallaPalla's summoned Lemures, unlike her sister's, lacked a suffix/prefix on their names, but both have an innocent looking-face that later transforms into a more hideous/monstrous face. Also, despite having a face on their midriffs like the rest of the Amazoness Quartet's Lemures, they never actually used them.
    • Both Lemures summoned by CereCere were flower-themed and had the prefix Ms. (suffix "Jou") on their names.
    • Similar to Mimete’s Daimons that ate Pure Hearts from the targets in the third season of the anime series, the Amazoness Quartet’s Lemures consumed Dream Mirrors. While all of them had this capability, only some of them engaged in the act. In episode 156, Ms. TogeToge outright refused to eat the target’s Dream Mirror because of its appearance.
