Changes from the manga
This episode is based on Act 8 and the beginning of Act 9 of the manga:
- Sailor Venus is introduced as Sailor V and the Moon Princess.
- Kunzite lures the Senshi to the tower so he can get the Silver Crystal and Tuxedo Mask is never challenged to a battle by Zoicite.
- The Silver Crystal is formed by Sailor Moon's tears.
- The Silver Crystal doesn't get attached to the Moon Stick until much later.
- Several seconds of the scene where Tuxedo Mask is impaled by Zoisite's Crystal is cut out in the English dub.
- The pastel drawing montage that plays when Usagi sees that Mamoru is really Tuxedo Mask is also cut out of the English dub.
- Illusionary Silver Crystal, the song that played during Sailor Moon's transformation into Princess Serenity, was replaced in several dubs
