Mars Snake Fire [anime]

Japanese Name: Mars Snake Fire

First Appearance: Sailor Moon S Opening 1

See Also: [manga]

In Brief: While never actually being used in an episode of the Sailor Moon anime, the first opening of the Sailor Moon S season suggests that Sailor Mars was originally supposed to gain that attack during that season. The Sailor Moon musicals also hint at this with the 1994 Summer Special Musical: Usagi's Road to Becoming a Soldier of Love also having Sailor Mars use the attack and the other Sailor's using the other attacks shown in this first opening. Several episodes early on in the Sailor Moon S season were dedicated to each of the Inners and it stands to reason that any of these would have given them their new attacks (This though is just my speculation).

Why the plan changed is unknown, though a possible theory may be that with Sailor Moon, Uranus and Neptune getting two new attacks and Sailor Pluto and Mini Moon getting one new attack each plus all the new transformations, the animation teams simply didn't have enough time to create the animation sequences for four new Inner attacks. Another possible theory is that the fans or staff simply thought the Inners didn't need new attacks and that their current repertoire was sufficient. It did take them until halfway through the fourth season, Sailor Moon SuperS until they were given new attacks with the possible reason for this being the dramatic change in animation style.

Cultural: "The Fire Snake is like a meteor in the sky, brilliant and alive. With spellbinding eloquence, the Snake converses with conviction on a broad range of topics, but realizes that good conversation lies as much in the listening as the talking. The Snake does both very well, raising communication to a very high and elegant art. People love to be in the company of this very graceful Fire Snake, who is always pleasant, provocative, humorous, and quick witted. With split second reflexes, they are constantly conceiving new ideas and coming up with new schemes. This entrepreneurial spirit makes headlines and the Fire Snake is much admired. Because of their ambition, perseverance, and infinite patience, and wise financial moves made early in life, their fortunes grow steadily. By the time middle age arrives, financial fortune is truly theirs. Relationships follow the same path, through faithfulness, perseverance, and willingness to make relationships really work, the future is always bright. "
