Sailormoon human monsters

Postby Quickshot0 » Wed Jan 06, 2010 7:28 am

I have a question on some of the enemies in Sailormoon that have a human base. In specific what I'm wondering about is if the Phages in the Sailor Stars arc, is it the only cases where a human will turn in to a monster when you take something away from them?
Or are there some alternative possibilities aside of the few cases of possession we've seen?

Well, there's the rainbow crystal carriers, but they are a special case. However, Zoisite later upgraded the black crystal he was using to extract the shards so he could just zap someone with it, and the target would turn into a monster. That's not really taking something from them, though.

Ahhh, I see, I'd forgotten about Zoisite. I'll have to take that in to account then, thanks for the information.

I imagine it as being somewhat similar to extracting a piece of their souls and replacing it with dark energy, which triggers the transformation. Purging the energy with Sailor Moon's healing magic allows the Star Seed (or whatever) to be replaced into its' rightful place.

That's a rather clever idea, so it would be like getting to study the crystals while getting instant minions, with a rather minimal investment of energy. I can see how that would be attractive to Galaxia.

I can't recall any instance myself, but I'd forgotten one other example already... so I'm not entirely sure. I poked around a little bit in wikimoon as well but haven't found anything there either atleast not up till now. On a side note, is it black moon family or dark moon family? I think it's the former but I've seen the latter used a few times here and there.

There's a ---- Moon Family and a ---- Moon Circus. Always confused me. Season two, season four.

Yes, actually. I never saw most of the R season myself but I know Sailor Moon turned several of Rubeus's minions (those girls in his Quirky Miniboss Squad, actually) into humans, which I don't think she could've done if they'd never been human in the first place.

It is; whenever the villains don't supply their own monsters (most youma, the cardians, and the daimons for instance) they inevitably use humans or something provided by humans to create their minions. It's one of the reasons why I headdesk at everyone who goes with the "NQS's purification brainwashes mankind" theory after we've had three or four seasons of humans being corrupted and transformed into monsters and saved via that same purification (but that's a topic for another thread...).

AFAIR, the monsters of Nehelenia's circus were her former royal court (humans).

is it the only cases where a human will turn in to a monster when you take something away from them?

It's not "taking away". It's forcible awakening them as a Sailor Senshi by the process of materializing their Star Seeds. Most people don't have power nor purity for that so they are rapidly corrupted by their own nature. Galaxia's minions then just lose interest in the subject, so the Star Seed gets reabsorbed, resulting in a twisted parody of a Sailor Warrior.

There's a ---- Moon Family and a ---- Moon Circus. Always confused me.

BLACK moon family and DEAD moon circus. Quite a difference. :)

"MutterI'll replace Galaxia's heart with Depleted UraniumMutter..."

She's able to cleave buildings in half with her sword, you know. Are you sure some stupid depleted uranium would be able to scratch her?
Not to say that she doesn't have a star seed herself, being an ultimate zombie powered by Primordial Chaos. I'm not sure if she is killable at all.

You've obviously never seen a GAU-8 Avenger in action, Cheb.

Impressive. But still she devastated uncounted planets, many of them probably having much better technologies. Their defenders failed to kill her -- I believe not for the lack of trying.
A simple battle clairvoyance will ensure none of the bullets would hit her. The zero magic resistance of the plane's pilot will ensure he'll have his soul sucked out before he even gets close.
Plus Galaxia appeared amidst the storm of her own making. Plus, she shows the ability to control electronic transmissions at will. There would be no radar, no navigation, no communication, the flight conditions terrible... No, it would be like hunting a T-Rex in the pitch dark jungle. Theoretically, you have a chance to shoot it down, but... Chomp. Just chomp.

And still, I don't believe Galaxia is as fragile as some puny main battle tank. No ultimate badass villain would allow themselves such a weakness.
