Sailor She's Usually Paired With: Sailor
Moon, Sailor Saturn, or Tuxedo Kamen Dream: to be friends with everybody, to become a lady like her mother
If you don't know already, (spoiler) Chibi-usa is the daughter of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Kamen.
She was actually born in the future, and then travelled back in time to get help from Sailor Moon when Crystal Tokyo was attacked
(these events are described in the Sailor Moon R season summary
). At first she didn't know that Usagi was her mother; she simply knew that someone with the same name as her would have
the silver crystal. Therefore, the first time she met Usagi, she pulled out a real-looking-but-toy-gun and threatened to shoot
Usagi if she didn't give her the silver crystal (note: this was cut in the dub).
Chibi-usa is probably a more disliked character in the series. I personally ::ducking:: think that when Usagi and Chibi-usa
get together they act annoying, but when they're apart they act pretty normal. Usually when Chibi-usa and Usagi get together
they fight, whether over Tuxedo Kamen or other things, but they actually do care about each other deeply (think of Usagi's
relationship with Rei).
Chibi-usa has friendships with all the Inner Sailors, especially with Rei. She also tends to have a better relationship
with the Outer Sailors, especially Hotaru and Setsuna. This is probably because Chibi-usa is a very outgoing and friendly
person (around everybody but Usagi), and despite the fact that most of the Outer Sailors are withdrawn, she still manages
to win their affections.
Chibi-usa is also probably popular at her school, since in season SuperS she got asked out by several boys (including the
most popular boy in the school ^.^). Her best friend in school is Momoko (Melissa), while her best friend out of all the Sailors
is probably Hotaru (Sailor Saturn). Usagi and Chibi-usa are, of course, good friends, but I think relatives have a different
Chibi-usa left at the end of R season only to return halfway through season S. Her reason was because her mother wanted
her to train in the past. As Sailor Chibi Moon, her attacks weren't very powerful and were usually used as distractions for
the bad guys (so SM could finish them off with her main attack), although her "Luna-P Change!" attack did come in handy a
few times. Chibi Moon's biggest part in the series was probably because she was best friends with Hotaru, who was possessed
by the major baddy Mistress 9. At one of the last episodes of the series, she received a letter from her mother saying that
Neo-Queen Serenity wanted her to return to the future. Chibi-usa was very sad to find this out, and was even sadder to find
that the girls were happy that she was leaving (she misinterpreted this: the Sailors were trying to make her feel better by
pretending to be happy for her). However, Chibi-usa found out from Neo-Queen Serenity that she didn't mind if Chibi-usa stayed
in the past for as long as she wanted, and so Chibi-usa returned (just in time to defeat the Monster-of-the-Day).
SuperS is usually described as when they threw out Sailor Moon as the main character and replaced her with Chibi Moon.
Maybe this is why the series' ratings went down ::ducking again::. Sailor Chibi Moon transformed to Super Sailor Chibi Moon,
became good friends with Pegasus, and received the power (from him) to destroy bad guys. Now she had a major role in the series, where she called forth the
power for Super Sailor Moon's main attack. Chibi Moon also became very good friends with Pegasus, and eventually learned that
he was actually a handsome young man called Helios. As the series passed, they got to liking each other too ^.^ Unfortunately,
Helios left at the end of the series. She was very sad to see him go, but managed to get a hug good-bye.
Stars is usually described as when they returned Sailor Moon to the main character slot and sent Chibi Moon to the future
again. Chibi Moon participated in the first part of the series, and then returned to the future at the beginning of the second
part. It's assumed that she felt her training was done. Sailor Moon was very sad to see her go.
The Black Lady
When Sailor Moon proved unable to revive Neo-Queen Serenity
, a dejected Rini wanders outside the protection of Crystal Palace. Wiseman
notices this and decides to come face to face with the little princess. Looking deep into her subconscious, he discovers
that Rini, in an attempt to prove just how princessly she could be, had touched the Silver Crystal of the future...and that's
when it disappeared. Wiseman
senses an opportunity. He searches for the darkest, loneliest thoughts in her memories, bringing them out into the open and
using them to convince Rini that no one cared about her, that she was perpetually alone. He eventually wins her trust, and
he takes her where he can bathe her in the energy of the Dark Crystal. This energy would transform her, making her into the
dark beauty known as Wicked Lady [Black Lady].
Wiseman sends Wicked Lady to the present day as his agent, to fend off the Sailor Scouts and help Prince Diamond gather the necessary energy to build the Dark Crystal. She's even ready to become the conduit for that dark energy, willing
to let herself be destroyed so that the Earth may be destroyed with her.
Though Saillor Moon tries several times to make Rini realize the truth, the energy from the Dark Crystal
and the words of Wiseman cloud her thoughts, and Sailor Moon must resort to approaching Wicked Lady as her future mother to shatter Wiseman's lies and make her see the love they share.
