Sailor Moon Wiki

In Codename: Sailor V, Minako Aino was given a crescent moon-shaped compact by Artemis.


She used it to transform into her standard Sailor form, as Sailor Venus, and for her unusually strong light-based attacks as well as disguising herself with Crescent Moon Power, Transform.

Some of the compact's powers are Crescent Beam, Venus Power, Love Crescent Shower, and Crescent Boomerang. It is charged by moonlight and has to be recharged often to work.

A similar item, called the Crescent Moon Cutter, appeared in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. It was also used by Sailor V, but it did not have the same functions as the compact in the manga.


In Sailor Moon Crystal, Minako used it to disguise herself into a male Mugen Academy student so she could attend idol Mimi Hanyu's concert.


  • This item is sometimes referred to as the "crescent compact" by some fans.
