Usagi Tsukino (月野 うさぎ, Tsukino Usagi) is the warrior of love and justice, Sailor Moon (セーラームーン, Seeraa muun). Originally from a prosperous civilization on the Moon known as the Moon Kingdom, she was reborn on Earth and re-awoke as the leader of the Sailor Senshi.
Nomenclature & Etymology
Usagi is written in the hiragana spelling of the Japanese word for "rabbit" (うさぎ, usagi)
Tsukino, The kanji of Tsuki (月) translates to "moon" while the kanji for no (野) translates to "field" or "civilian". The syllable no (の) also indicates possession, so while the literal translation of her family name could be "moon field" or "moon civilian", others may translate it as "of the moon."
Her full name, when said in the Japanese naming-order, Tsukino Usagi, gives two additional puns: No-Usagi (野うさぎ), meaning "wild rabbit"; and Tsuki no Usagi (月のうさぎ), meaning "Rabbit of the Moon". The latter derives from an Asian folktale about a rabbit that is said to reside on the Moon.
Naoko Takeuchi included many occultist arts to finely detail each character. For Usagi, these things include:
- Pearl - Purity, humility and innocence.
- Alexandrite - Believed to strengthen intuition, aid creativity and inspire imagination.
- Moonstone - Love, passion, fertility and great luck.
- Zodiac Sign: Cancer - Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive; Moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, insecure.
She retains her manga and anime appearance.
In the 4 stages of the musicals, Sailor Moon wore three different versions of her sailor uniform: the first one corresponded with her original form, the second with her Super Sailor Moon form, and the third with her Eternal Sailor Moon form. In many musicals she would transform into the first version, then later into the second, and into the third at the end, in contrast to the anime or manga, where once she gained a powered-up form she never was seen in a previous one again.
- Sailor Moon - In most versions of this costume, Sailor Moon's bows, bottom skirt, glove fittings, choker, and boots were a dark pink, while her collar and top skirt were blue. At first her sleeves were pink, but later versions of the costume had blue sleeves. The first version of her brooch was a gold star with pink gems, and another version had a heart-shaped brooch similar to the Cosmic Heart Compact, but most of them had a similar design to her first brooch in other incarnations of the series. She had a golden crescent moon in the center of her choker and two crescent moons on the tops of her boots, and golden crescent moon earrings, and sometimes had wing-shaped barrettes in her hair, similar to those worn by Super Sailor Moon. The odango covers were a sparkling red. In the original version of the costume all of the trim and the stripes on her collar were gold, but in later versions the gold was replaced by pink with gold accents. In La Reconquista, her bows, bottom skirt, glove fittings, choker, and boots were red, while her collar and top skirt were blue. In the Nogizaka46 version, her sleeves were white with red ornamentation. The front bow and part of the uniform had gold trim, while the top skirt had light blue trim.
- Super Sailor Moon - This version of the costume was almost identical to her Super form from the manga and anime. Her front bow, glove fittings, and boots were pink, her collar was blue, and her sleeves and back bow were silver. In one musical her skirt had three layers, the top one silver, the middle one gold, and the bottom one blue; but later it only had two layers, the top one silver and the bottom one blue. She wore silver wing-like barrettes in her hair. The brooch in the center of her front bow was heart-shaped and trimmed in gold. Unlike the manga and anime, her tiara gem did not change into a Crescent moon, and remained a red gem in the center. The trim on her skirts, bow, sleeves, and the main body of the costume in the first version was silver, but the collar stripes and the trim on the main body of the later versions of the costume was gold. In Un Nouveau Voyage, her boots were red, her front bow and glove fittings were red with gold trim, and her collar was blue with gold trim. Her top skirt was white with a wide gold stripe at the bottom edge, the bottom skirt was dark blue, and she wore a light pink petticoat beneath. Her sleeves and back bow were a transparent glittery pink with pink trim. Her choker was gold with a pink gem, and her tiara gem was a crescent moon.
- Eternal Sailor Moon - This version of the costume was almost identical to her Eternal form from the manga and anime. The sleeves, glove fittings, and wristbands were pink, and the "wings" on her glove fittings were gold. Her choker was pink with gold edges, but it had a golden heart instead of a crescent moon in the center. The wings on her chest were silver, and in the center, she had a pink heart-shaped brooch with silver wings on the sides, similar in design to the Crisis Moon Compact. She had two belts above her skirt, one gold and one pink, with a crescent moon in the center. Her skirt had three layers, gold on the top, then pink in the middle, and blue on the bottom. Her boots changed to white with red borders at the tops. Her earrings were large dangling crescent moons with five-pointed stars underneath them. At first she had a crescent moon on her forehead in place of a tiara, but in later versions of the costume, she wore her usual tiara instead, however in Armour Eternal and Le Mouvement Final she had a crescent moon again. She wore white feathered wings, the exact design of which varied from musical to musical.
