Sailor Mars is one of the five original Inner Sailor Senshi of the Solar System, and was the fourth Sailor Senshi introduced in the manga. Her civilian identity is Rei Hino. Her attacks are based around fire, psychic powers, and spiritual powers. This is the original depiciton of the character originally created by Naoko Takeuchi.
Dark Kingdom arc
Rei's awakening as Sailor Mars in the manga was shown in Act 3. After Rei and Usagi were transported into another world with victims of the kidnappings, Luna sent Ami to help Usagi. Rei was caught by Jadeite, and Usagi transformed into Sailor Moon and used Moon Frisbee, freeing Rei and restraining Jadeite. Luna orders Sailor Mercury to throw the extra pen she had given her earlier. As the pen passes by Rei, the symbol of Mars appears on her forehead, transforming her into Sailor Mars. She calls Phobos and Deimos, and performs Akuryo Taisan, turning Jadeite into dust. The Sailor Senshi are transported, along with the other victims of the kidnappings. Luna and Sailor Moon claim they are happy that they have found the third Senshi.

Attacks and Weapons
Like the other members of the Sailor Senshi, Sailor Mars's original design were fully unique. It featured an alternate bow, double shoulder guards, plate-armor, elaborate jewelry, and a gold rimmed mask. Her trademark high-heeled shoes were also already present. Also, the red pendant worn on her belt was also going to be worn on a necklace in her civilian form and could also produce fire. Originally, she could also shoot fire laser beams from her fingertips. Another note stated that in her civilian form, her eyes were always purple while in her Senshi form, her eyes were red.
It is noted that her outfit as Sailor Mars echoes the color of miko robes, making the character most tied into tradition.
Also, when Sailor Mars upgraded into her Super form, originally her hair was supposed to turn red. This was later cut out.
- Mars is the Roman god of war.
- Miko (shrine priestesses) are known for their archery skills. When Sailor Mars transforms into Super Sailor Mars, her main attack is the Mars Flame Sniper, which is a fiery bow and arrow.
- Sailor Mars is friends with two crows, Phobos and Deimos. This is reference to two of Mars's moons, which go by the same names. It's also reference to two of the Roman god Mars's sons, also with the same names.
- Sailor Mars and Sailor Neptune are the only Sailor Senshi to possess psychic powers, and Mars is the only Inner Senshi to do so.
- Sailor Mars's Ayakashi Sister counterpart was Koan. Her Witches 5 counterpart was Eudial. Her Sailor Quartet counterpart was VesVes/Sailor Vesta. The Shitennou general she's paired up with in Takeuchi's artwork is Jadeite.
