Changes From the Manga

  • The physical pain that Mamoru feels from the Dead Moon's corruption of Elysion occurred earlier when the Dead Moon Circus first arrived on Earth.
    • The curse also made Mamoru cough up black blood.
    • It also affected Helios and eventually Usagi, due to her connection with Mamoru.



  • The song that played in the background during the fight between the Amazoness Quartet and the Sailor Senshi was "Theme of the Sailor Team." In the CWi English dub, the song was replaced with a translated version referred to as "Let's Fight" by fans. The German dub also replaced it with a German-language version of the song. In the Latin Spanish dub, it was replaced with an instrumental version of "Moonlight Densetsu," while the Korean dub replaced it with a translated version of "Moonlight Densetsu." In the European Spanish dub, the chorus was repeated over and over. The Catalan dub replaced the song with "Moon Revenge." The Cantonese Chinese dub replaced the song with "Guardians of Love." In the Hebrew dub, it was replaced with an instrumental version of the song. The Italian, French, Hungarian, Portuguese, and Indonesian dubs removed the song completely without a replacement.
