Changes from the manga
- Rubeus is killed by Wiseman, and dies after Esmeraude.
- Sailor Moon frees the Senshi (except Venus, who was not captured) when she was taken prisoner to Nemesis. She used her power to free them, damaging the planet and teleporting them all to Crystal Tokyo.
- All shots of the Senshi hanging from crosses are cut from the English dub, and they were not seen in full until after they were freed by Chibiusa.
- Sailor Moon hitting Chibiusa on the head was cut from the dub
- Esmeraude smacking Rubeus' hand with her fan before his death was cut from the dub
