Personality[edit | edit source]
Like any girl her age, Usagi is typically cheery and outgoing. Though originally coming off as very quiet and socially awkward due to all the bullying in her past and an inferiority complex of how she'd never be as great a ruler as her mother is, thanks to her estrange meeting with the rest of the Knights, she grew out of her shell and started to become a lot more outgoing. She's loud, outspoken, and can be a little bratty sometimes (but what young, spoiled princess isn't?), but she still shows her gratitude towards the rest of her newfound family when they come through her. She's incredibly brave, and won't hesitate to face any threat to the lives of his friends, be it facing an entire army of robot drones with only one or two of her friends by her side or protecting Atros from one of her comrades' attacks, all in the hopes to someday becoming a great hero as the rest of them and her mother in her youth. She has also studied and trained intensely under the mentorship of the team's veterans, especially Koji and Honey, and does not take her new duties as a defender of the Multiverse lightly.
But, even after all the battles and other trials & tribulations the group has faced, no matter how many times she's nearly bit the dust, she never loses her hopeful outlook, always trying to get the team to look on the bright side of things. Because while the Silver Crystal's power gives her incredibly powers, her true strength lies in her big heart that accepts anyone and everyone (depending on the person, of course), bringing out the best in all her friends and making them all feel loved and happy. She may be a princess, but she never lets that cloud her judgment (outside of the occasional joke, of course). She don't care who or what someone is - whether they be a human, an android, or were even genetically engineered - what matters to her most is what kind of person they are, and if she even sees the tiniest hint of goodness, she will accept them with open arms, like her friends did with her before, and will fight tooth and nail to help them with whatever problems they're facing. In fact, her optimistic output is often a source of encouragement for the team, often being what helps them need to strive forward; traits that'll no doubt be instrumental for when she becomes queen.
History[edit | edit source]
Pre-Series[edit | edit source]
The only child of Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion in 30th Century in Crystal Tokyo, Usagi was constantly bullied and ridiculed by the other children for not having any magical abilities like her mother. Not able to take anymore, she tried to break into her mother's chambers and steal her Legendary Silver Crystal. Unfortunately, that was when the Black Moon Clan attacked.
Mini-Series[edit | edit source]
As she ran from the destruction, she fell through a red portal and found herself lost in a forest. With only Luna P to accompany her, she ran off aimlessly until she came across a group of Black Moon Clan Droids. Terrified once she saw their Black Moon symbols on their heads, she tried to flee, only to be cornered her against a cliffside, until she was saved by a teenage girl, who introduced herself as Starlight. While she was intimidated by 's brutal fighting skills, she also realized that there most likely wasn't anyone else around to protect her in case of any more drones, she decided to tag along with her to explore their surroundings. The two soon ran into a small group of Dark Army Drones, which were about to squash the two of them.
Season 1[edit | edit source]
While she was really happy with her new friends, she would sometimes have nightmares of turning into Black Lady again and destroying her new family. Not wanting to worry them, she would keep this to herself.
Season 2[edit | edit source]
Season 3[edit | edit source]
Abilities & Equipment[edit | edit source]
In her human form, Usagi doesn't have any special abilities. Most of her powers come from her Sailor Guardian form.
Sailor Guardian Form Powers[edit | edit source]
- Enhanced Strength
Though this doesn't make her as strong as other members like most of her android companions, Usagi is still incredibly strong. Two great examples of this are how she was able to catch & toss aside Megatron's foot when he tries to step on her and even being able to do a good amount of damage from her kicks and punches to both mechs and androids.
- Enhanced Jumping
Usagi is able to jump great heights, amounting to about 12 meters into the air.
- Moon Tiara Boomerang
Usagi is able to remove her tiara from her forehead and launch it at an opponent like a boomerang.
- Red Hair Pieces
Usagi has a pair of red hair pieces attached to her hair buns. They create supersonic waves whenever she panics and starts crying, causing the pieces to amplify her wailing until it becomes physically painful for enemies. This attack is often used as a last resort when Usagi has no other way to protect herself. They can also be used to hear things from a great distance.
After reassembling the seven Rainbow Crystals, Usagi was given the power of the Legendary Silver Crystal, which gives her access to many mystical abilities:
- Fend off any dark energy
- Insanely powerful energy beams and blasts
- Protective Shields & Barriers (this one is especially helpful against really powerful attacks)
Moon Rod[edit | edit source]
Given to her by her mother to aid in her efforts of fighting the forces of evil, its . It can also be used to block bladed weapons. This gives her access to several final attacks:
- Moon Princess Halation:
- Her mother's signature move, it generates several powerful moonlight-based blasts which are projected to different directions.
- Pink Sugar Heart Attack
- Usagi's first original spell for the wand, it is an unusually strong heart-based attack. While it only caused slight damage to a single wall, after lots of practice, it fires a surprisingly strong heart-shaped beam attack, with it firing hundreds of energy pellets shaped like hearts.
Combo Attacks[edit | edit source]
- Moon Spiral Rocket Punch
Combo attack w/ Emily: Emily clutches her hands together and fires her forearms like Jeeg's Knuckle Bomber, and Usagi boosts it with a blast from her Moon Princess Halation, with the fists spiraling like a drill as they accelerate forward.
- Moon Tiara/Dagger Action
Combo attack w Rosy: A relatively simple combo attackj, Usagi and Rosy combine their Moon Tiara Boomerang and Dagger into one super-charged boomerang.
- Combination Crash1
Combo attack w/ Lulli: Usagi and Lulli fly high into the air and perform a double dive-kick that pierces right through their target, causing it to explode behind them (like you do).
- Moon Spiral Shine Spark
Combo attack w/ Emily & Getter Liger: After charging up the Shine Spark, Usagi and Emily fire their Moon Spiral Rocket Punch, meeting at the tip of Liger's Drill Arm, increasing Liger's speed and delivering a much more powerful blow to the opponent.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Kamille is one of Usagi's closest friends on the team, with Usagi viewing him as an older brother. He was the first person she opened up to about her past, and after that trust, she'll often turn to him when she's scared and confused about something. His dedication to protecting her during their first battles against the Heralds of Unicron was one of Usagi's biggest inspirations to become a hero, and made a promise to protect him from harm, just as had for her.
Emily & Ayako[edit | edit source]
While Usagi loves all of her newfound friends/family equally, Emily and Ayako are the closest to her on the whole team (so much so that if not for their means of birth, the three could be mistaken for sisters), with the three of them often getting into their own side missions while the other Knights are doing more "serious" tasks. Emily was the first friend around her age to treat her with any kindness, and in a way, Usagi gave some of that kindness back to Ayako when she reached out to her, and they often act as her emotional support for when she's trying to test out a new spell or when she just needs someone to talk to. And Usagi has returned their support in kind, with her courage in later battles inspiring the two to step out of their comforts zones and helping on the battlefield as well (and in big ways, too).
Atros[edit | edit source]
Usagi and Atros's relationship is one of the most interesting in the series. Being built specifically to fight her, the Pretty Guardian trainee and the young battle-type android were fierce rivals for a majority of the first season, with Atros constantly egging her on to fight her one on one in the middle of missions, or even just pulling childish pranks when the two happened to run into each other on the side of the street. But as the group continued to recruit/give shelter to more and more of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s androids, she started to have second thoughts about her rival.
Rosy[edit | edit source]
Nyoka[edit | edit source]
Lulli[edit | edit source]
Though not to as much of an extent as Kamille, Usagi views Koji as an cool older brother. She also greatly admires his courage in battle, and can only hope that she can be as fearless as him someday.
Usagi views Honey as a protective older sister, with her being the first person she'll go to whenever she's feeling scared or depressed over a personal issue.
Catra & Amity Blight[edit | edit source]
Sunset and Catra are two of Usagi's closest friends on the team, with the two acting as her sort of angel and devil on her shoulders. While Sunset tries to steer her in the right direction on most issues, Catra often tempts her into more dangerous and insane antics. While she will sometimes go along with Catra's antics, she will be quick to chastise her when she messes up big time and puts one of their friends in danger.
Mohm[edit | edit source]
Cosmo[edit | edit source]
Like the others, Usagi was quick to side with Cosmo when she first arrived, her especially when she saw how scared to death she was and didn't want to go back to that awful place, reminding her all too well with the team's battle with the Black Moon and Unicron's other Heralds.
Rom & Leina[edit | edit source]
Like the rest of her compatriots, Usagi despises the organization . However, she's a lot lighter on the organization's creations, particularly
Sigma[edit | edit source]
Notes[edit | edit source]
This incarnation is a mix between her characterizations/stories in the original anime and Crystal.
Usagi has been aged up to how she appears in the third season of the original series, S, during the events of the mini-series, and then taking on her Super S appearance for the remainder of the series, mostly to make her transformation into Neo Sailor Moon and fighting capabilities later in the series a little more believable.
Usagi's tale is sort of meant to be a parallel to her mother's original ventures with the Sailor Guardians and their battles against the forces of evil, as well as her mother's hopeful attitude towards the people around her. This is even down to how both the original Sailor Guardians and the Knights being a found family, all being outcasts of some sort before the main heroine brought them together, though obviously, this element of her story is shared with the other founding members of the Knights.
Usagi's arc in the series (mostly in the Mini-Series) is somewhat similar to that of Takua/Takanuva of Lego's Bionicle, as both youngsters act as audience surrogates and possess great, hidden powers that help their comrades beat impossible odds.
