Sailor Tin Nyanko is the 4th and final Sailor Animamate. She has a cold personality, willing to kill anyone who is in her way. She is the only Sailor Animamate who is known to be a true Sailor Senshi.
Nomenclature & Etymology
Nyanko means cat, or kitten (Nyan is the Japanese equivalent of meow and ko means small). Her surname, Suzu, means "little bells", which means that her disguise name would be translated as "Little Bells Kitten."
A black leather suit covers most of her body parts, like arms, chest, and head. The headpiece has cat ears and strands hanging down from them, small, thin braids, framing her face with her golden eyes. A collar, a bow, and a choker remind us of a Sailor uniform. Along her chest and stomach, the choker and on the headpiece, she has small bells. A gray pantyhose with black bands around her legs and half-boots are part of her outfit. But the most important thing is, that she has a cattail.
Sailor Tin Nyanko's name in disguise was Nyanko Suzu. She used the form to follow Usagi, and get her Star Seed because her life was in danger. That happened because of her failure of not capturing Sailor Moon's Star Seed at the right time. However the plan seemed to work when she attacked Usagi, but then Usagi transformed into Sailor Moon and performed Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss on her destroying one of her Bracelets, and her real outfit changed into two different colors, Black and White. Because of those two colors she was half evil and half good, making her tell Galaxia she was going to get the Star Seed, but on the other side telling the Sailor Senshi Galaxia's weaknesses, however, she then got killed by Galaxia.
In the anime, Tin Nyanko is portrayed as disrespectful and cruel, as well as ambitious to get to the top position in her organization. When Tin Nyanko was hit by Eternal Sailor Moon's attack, she was partially healed and her former self resurfaced, wanting to help the Sailor Senshi.
Like her fellow members, she worked under the pretense of a Ginga TV agent. She set out to eliminate her rivals to be on top. Because of this goal and her associated involvement in Seiren's death, she and Sailor Lead Crow were constantly at odds with each other during the short time they were together. Each Animamate went to great lengths to foil the other, ultimately resulting in Lead Crow's death.
Finally, in the spotlight, she did not start very well. After being attacked by Sailor Moon's Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss, she was partially healed as one of her bracelets broke. This meant that half her mind was her former good self and the other still under Galaxia's control. As she was unable to stop fighting with herself, Galaxia kill her.
- Bracelets - Sailor Tin Nyanko could fire blasts from her bracelets that would remove a person's Star Seed.
- Cat Paw Gun - Sailor Tin Nyanko carried a gun shaped like a cat's paw which could fire blasts of energy at a target.
- Nyanko means cat or kitten, and Suzu means "little bells". Hence, her civilian name could be translated as Little Bells Kitten.
- Nyanko and Sailor Galaxia were the only villains whom Sailor Moon used the Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss attack against that were not a Phage.
- She only created one Phage - Sailor Musician.
