"World Shaking" is a powerful energy-based attack that Sailor Uranus uses in all versions of the series in which she appears.

90s Anime

In the anime, Sailor Uranus first used World Shaking in episode 90 (although it was unnamed until her first named appearance in episode 92) against the Daimon, Mikuji.

She performed the attack by raising her hand above her head, streaks of energy gathered in her hand from the air. Uranus then closed her hand on it and a ringed sphere began to form. When the energy sphere was fully formed, she hurled it toward the ground in the direction of the target. The sphere moved through the ground, causing an earthquake, then rose above the ground, in accordance to the position of its ring, just before hitting the target.


The first time it is used, the energy blast has the shape of "ringed sphere" and a yellow color, like the original anime which is used to kill Mimete. Sailor Uranus also this attack against the Sailor Moon, Chibiusa, the Inner Senshi, and Tuxedo Mask to warn them against getting in the way of her and Sailor Neptune's mission. Though how she used the attack and the effects on the group wasn't shown. She also used the attack in Sailor Moon Eternal in conjunction with Sailor Pluto's Dead Scream attack, and it was used the same way as it used in the first anime to free the Inner Senshi from the Amazoness Quartet's vines.


In the manga, Sailor Uranus first used World Shaking in Act 29 against Mimete. The attack appeared as an energy blast that was shot towards the enemy.

Video Games

Sailor Uranus has used this attack in the video games Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S (3DO) and Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS: Zenin Senkai!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen.



  • The energy sphere with the vertical ring released by World Shaking is likely a reference to the planet Uranus, whose axis of rotation is approximately parallel with the plane of the Solar System, causing the planet to rotate along its orbit, thus being similar in appearance to this attack (save for colour).
  • When Sailor Uranus upgraded into her “Super” form, the stock footage for World Shaking was updated to match her new uniform.
  • In the Cloverway dub, it sometimes adds Uranus to the original attack name as it calls it, "Uranus World Shaking."
