Sparkling Wide Pressure is an incredibly strong electrical attack used by Sailor Jupiter in the manga, the first anime series, the musicals, Crystal and a few video games.

To perform the attack, Sailor Jupiter would bring her hands together and hurl white bolts of lightning which would later take the form of a large disc at the enemy. In the reprint manga, there were also flowers visible swirling amidst the electricity.

Manga

Sailor Jupiter used this attack for the first time against Berthier in Act 16. It was used only one more time in the subsequent chapter[1], where it was used against Petz.

First Anime Series

Sailor Jupiter first used this attack against Petz in episode 65 of the anime.[2] To perform this attack, she gathered lightning from her tiara to form a disc-type of electricity and threw it towards the enemy.

Trivia

  • In the DiC dub it was called Jupiter Thunderclap Zap. In the Cloverway dub, the attack name changes to Supreme Thunder Crash in episode 96 until it was called the correct attack name in episode 99 and onwards.
  • In Volume 3 of the English version of the re-release manga, "Sparkling Wide Pressure" was incorrectly translated as "Spark Ring Wide Pressure". It was later corrected in the next volume.
  • In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon she had a similar lightning-based attack called Jupiter Thunderbolt and in another act she used another electric/lightning attack which was not named on screen, in which she struck the ground, sending lines of light green-colored lightning toward her targets and electrocuted them.
  • In Sailor Moon S episode 105, Sailor Jupiter successfully destroyed a daimon by herself with this attack. She was the only Inner Senshi to accomplish this.
  • On many occasions, Sailor Jupiter did not need to extend the antenna from her tiara in order to perform this attack.
