[SENSHI] Sailor Pluto.
Chibiusa ran away in episode 68, and Usagi found her at a construction site. She overheard the child talking to a voice through Luna P. Later, the group learned that the voice “Puu” belonged to a fellow senshi, Sailor Pluto. The tall guardian of the Space-Time Door sent Chibiusa back to the 20th Century to find the past Silver Crystal.
The team first encountered Pluto when Chibiusa was ill in episode 75. She sent the senshi into the girl’s mind to rescue her. Chibiusa took the senshi with her to the future in episode 82. Pluto confused Sailor Moon for an enemy and almost struck her with her Garnet Rod. Chibiusa stopped her, and Pluto gave them all access to the Space-Time Corridor. Pluto assisted the group in finding Chibiusa, who had turned into Black Lady.
During their first physical meeting, the senshi noticed the sorrowful look in Pluto’s eyes. Mercury asked her to come with them to Crystal Tokyo. She replied that she was not allowed to leave her position. Luna mentioned how Queen Serenity told her of Sailor Pluto. The lonely senshi’s mere existence was not to be known of, and very few had ever seen her. Due to her eternal obligation to protect the Space-Time Door, Pluto became a Sailor Senshi long before any of the present day Inners or Outers.
Pluto returned in episode 110 as Setsuna Meiou, and then revealed her true identity in the following episode. She formed the Holy Grail with Uranus and Neptune. Pluto was given permission by Neo Queen Serenity to leave her post to help out in the past.
Pluto joined her Outer comrades in the mission to find the Messiah. She interacted with the Inner Senshi and Chibiusa sometimes. Pluto was less aggressive than Uranus, but she knew that Hotaru had to be dealt with when her Saturn power awakened. Pluto was torn between her sacred duty and her concern for Small Lady.
Mistress 9 ascended, and both senshi teams went to face her in episode 124. The Outers traveled to Mugen Academy by helicopter. The daimon army launched itself at the flying machine, and nearly destroyed it until Pluto performed her forbidden power. She froze time and teleported Uranus and Neptune away from harm. The helicopter blew up and Pluto was presumed to be dead.
Pharaoh 90 was defeated, and Sailor Saturn reverted to a small baby. Chibiusa was playing in the park when a vision of Pluto appeared. She said she no longer had a corporeal body in this world, and explained what happened to Hotaru. Before leaving, Pluto told Small Lady that they would see each other again.
Haruka and Michiru were ambushed by Nehelenia’s monsters in episode 167. Pluto rescued them with Dead Scream. Haruka and Michiru thought that she was dead before this reunion. Pluto had visited Tomoe earlier, and took baby Hotaru away. The child transformed the Outers into Super Sailor Senshi.
Nehelenia abducted Mamoru and placed him under her thrall. The senshi all followed Usagi to the enemy’s nightmare world. In episode 171, Pluto and Venus were teamed up. The time senshi sent Venus to find the princess, and stayed behind to fight the paredri. Venus came back to help her friend, and Pluto dropped her serious demeanor for a moment and smiled.
Pluto didn’t participate in most of the smaller skirmishes with Sailor Galaxia’s minions. She did show up to help Usagi find Chibi Chibi in episode 182. Like Uranus and Neptune, Pluto was initially distrustful of the Starlights. She made sure to keep them away from the princess.
In episode 197, only the Outers and Starlights were left to protect Sailor Moon from Galaxia. Uranus and Neptune switched teams, and they removed Pluto and Saturn’s star seeds. Pluto was resurrected once Galaxia was purified and all star seeds were restored.
In Greek and Japanese mythology, the planet Pluto is associated with the underworld. In 2006, the real Pluto was reassigned as a dwarf planet.
Sailor Pluto’s choker, pleated skirt, boots and sailor collar were all black. Her earrings were red, large and looked like geometric arrow fletchings. The collar had no stripes, and the chest and back bows were a muddy maroon color. On top of the chest bow was a red or maroon brooch. Around the top of her elbow gloves were three black rings. She lacked shoulder pads, and the skirt and back bow attached to a white, padded hip roll at the waist. Pluto’s choker was accented with a red gem attached to a stud hanging from the choker. Her boots looked like Mercury’s except with longer heels. The gem in her tiara was red like her earrings.
In Sailor Stars, she upgraded to Super Sailor Pluto. The main differences to her costume were a longer back bow, a collar stripe, a heart shaped chest brooch, shoulder pads with translucent sleeves, and a gold star in place of the gem on the choker.
