To perform the attack, Sailor Moon uses the Cutie Moon Rod, generating several powerful moonlight-based blasts which are projected to different directions.

Manga Series and Crystal

In the manga and second anime, Moon Princess Halation was first used to in Act 15 to destroy Koan.

Later towards the end of the arc in Act 26, Neo-Queen Serenity gave Chibiusa Tsukino / Sailor Chibi Moon (manga) her rod in order to fight along with Sailor Moon against the Death Phantom, which successfully destroyed him.

First Anime Series

In the second season of the first anime series, after Sailor Moon received the Crystal Star and the Cutie Moon Rod from the spirit of Queen Serenity, she used the attack against the Cardian Reci.

Two types of monsters fell victim to the attack: Cardians and Droids. The Cardians would disintegrate/vanish, leaving only their card (which would go blank), not unlike the Cardians that were destroyed in any other way (even Moon Tiara Action), and the droids' outside color would shatter into pieces, turning them a light blue color and causing them to crumble into dust and vanish, leaving only a gem they had placed on some part of their body, which would turn colorless.

When Chibiusa destroyed Rubeus's source of power, Sailor Moon hit him directly with Moon Princess Halation, but this did not kill him; instead, it slammed him into the wall. The attack was powerful enough, however, to destroy Esmeraude when she was in dragon form, though admittedly at the time she had been stunned by Tuxedo Mask when he threw a rose at her crown.

In the first episode of the third season, Sailor Moon used this attack only once against Mikuji but was ineffective. It was replaced in the next episode with the much stronger Moon Spiral Heart Attack.
