Sailor Mars is one of the five original Inner Sailor Senshi of the Solar System, and was the third Sailor Senshi introduced in the anime. Her civilian identity is Rei Hino. Her attacks are based around fire, psychic powers, and spiritual powers. This is the first animated depiction of the original manga character.
Sailor Mars was the first Senshi form Rei was able to transform into. Rei was able to transform into this form in the first, R, and S seasons and the first half of the SuperS season.
As Sailor Mars, she wears the standard Senshi fuku. The dominant color of her fuku was red while the accent color was purple. Her tiara gem, earrings, choker, collar, elbow fittings on her gloves, center of her front bow, back bow, skirt and shoes were red while her front bow was purple. Her earrings were five-pointed red stars, her collar had one stripe, and her shoes were red high heels.
Super Sailor Mars was the second and final Senshi form Rei was able to transform into. Rei was able to transform into this form in the second half of the SuperS season and the Sailor Stars season.

Rei lives with her perverted grandfather at the Hikawa Shrine (Cherry Hill Temple in the DiC dub). She first appears in the 7th episode of the Dark Kingdom arc. Usagi and Ami visit the Hikawa Shrine to get lucky charms and also due to hearing the rumor that all the buses disappear on their way to the shrine.
Rei works as a miko in the Hikawa Shrine in which she smacks Usagi with her ofuda thinking that she is a youma.
She then apologizes for what she did and the mother of one of the missing students gets angry because of what happened to her daughter when she rode one of the missing buses.
Later, Usagi and Ami return to the shrine after they discovered the bus goes to another dimension. Afterwards they leave as she angrily tells them not to come back to the shrine, but she picks up a red Transformation Pen and she sees that Jadeite sells the charms to the girls and discovers that he was behind the buses disappearance. When Rei discovers Jadeite's treachery, he takes her to the other dimension where he hides the missing buses.
Usagi and Luna finally go into the other dimension disguised as a Bus Attendant and they realized that all the girls inside the bus are unconscious and the youma being responsible for that. Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon ensnares the youma using her Moon Tiara Action to save Rei and to Luna's discovery that she has a Mars symbol glowing on her forehead when she is in danger.
Rei noticed Luna can speak and she replies that there is no time to explain and to show the pen that she picked up. Luna tells her that stick she picked up, was her Transformation Pen and convinces her to hold it up and say the phrase "Mars Power, Make Up!" Rei visibly infuriated, transforms into Sailor Mars and says to herself that the transformation was unbelievable. With her Fire Soul the youma is turned into dust.
Both Sailor Moon and Sailor Mars were later saved by Tuxedo Mask. After the incident the two start to bicker due to their crush on Tuxedo Mask, making Sailor Moon cry. Rei is the last senshi to be killed by the DD Girls, but along with the rest, she comes back to life.

Rei's grandfather forgives her for not listening to him when she was hurt from the droid's attack and Rei tells him that he was strong. He gets angry for ruining his family, but he's been attacked by a droid. Usagi discovers the chaos and she transforms into Sailor Moon to rescue Rei and her grandfather. She recognizes Koan is the same woman who plans to capture Chibusa after revealing her crescent moon on her forehead when she is in danger.
