Almost all Sailor Senshi (part of their uniform)
Attacking and destroying enemies (Sailor Moon only)
Sailor Moon's tiara served as her first weapon. In the manga, Sailor Moon used her tiara for two main attacks; Moon Frisbee and Moon Twilight Flash. The latter was one of Sailor Moon's manga only attacks and was first used in Volume 01, Act 04. A bright light flashes from the gem on her tiara. She received upgrades to her tiara during the Dark Kingdom arc of the manga, but in every other manga arc it stayed the same.
Sailor Moon's first tiara was given to her when she first transformed into Sailor Moon.
When looking at the tiara from a distance it appears to have a rather simple smooth golden design with a circular red gem at it's centre. On closer inspection though one can see that it in fact has subtle details engraved in it's surface and the gem itself is encased in a golden frame.
When removed from Sailor Moon's forehead and activated for her Moon Frisbee attack (renamed Moon Tiara Boomerang for the manga re-release) the tiara morphs into a flat circular shape with the gem placed on top.
An interesting subtle feature in this form is the small chain with a small crescent moon shape attached to one side. This appears to serve no function though is a nice unappreciated detail.
The tiara was destroyed during the battle with Jadeite in Act 3 (in both original and new manga) when Sailor Moon threw the tiara at him and Luna simultaneously pushed a key on Mercury's computer causing it to wrap around him.
Sailor Mars then attacked Jadeite with her Evil Spirits Disperse attack, destroying both him and the tiara.In the anime it can be removed in order to perform the attack, "Moon Tiara Action," in which she throws the tiara like a frisbee at her opponent. It is also used in the one-time attack, "Moon Tiara Stardust," in which it sprinkles healing moondust over possessed children in episode 005.
- Based on the Senshi's signature color (except Sailor Moon), that is the color of the gem in the tiara.
- Sailor Moon is the only one who's tiara had changed over the series.
- When the Sailor Senshi gained their "Eternal" forms, the gems in their tiaras became stars, except Chibi Moon, whos gem became a crescent moon, and Eternal Sailor Moon had no tiara at all.
Tiaras were used by ancient people in Mesopotamia and unlike today, their tiaras were made out of leather or fabric. The Persian tiara featured less fabric and more jewels bringing it closer to the modern version.
Today a tiara is a lot more basic made from metal and normally in a basic semi-circle occasionally featuring numerous jewels and normally used in special occasions such as beauty pageants or a wedding to recreate a sense of history and importance.
Funnily enough, tiaras are almost always worn on top of a woman's hair, however Sailor Moon seems to have her's focuses mainly on her forehead with the sides slipping under her fringe and attaching itself just in front of her ears.
Tiaras in general symbolise power and a sense of royalty.
