First Appearances

Trivia

  • When Sailor Moon told Tesuni that "Navratilova would be ashamed," she was referencing tennis player Martina Navratilova, a woman from Czechoslovakia (now the countries of the Czech Republic and Slovakia) who defected to the west. She is also known for LGBT rights activism (she is openly gay), animal rights activism and her opposition to communism. 
  • This episode featured the first time an individual was specifically targeted by an enemy, though it became the formula for the majority of episodes in the anime.
  • This is the last time that Rino Romano voiced Darien/Tuxedo Mask in the English dub.
