Droids (ドロイド, Doroido) were humanoid robots that served the Black Moon Clan.
In the manga, the droids were created by Saphir using the Evil Black Crystal. The manga droids were like robots without eyes or mouths, and could only make screeching noises rather than words. It is stated by Saphir that Veneti and Aquatici were perfect droids.
Many of them masquerade as humans for their missions. At first, the Ayakashi Sisters sent them to take over Crystal Points. After the death of Rubeus, Esmeraude began sending them to fill weak points in the city with dark energy. The droids have a colored gem with a crescent that is visible on some part of their body. When they are killed, they leave behind their gem in a pile of sand, with the former turning black.
The Ayakashi Sisters' Droids
The droids have the same function as in the manga.
In the musical "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon ~ Birth! The Princess of Darkness - Black Lady ~", there was a droid named Rugbyman. In the revision, there was a similar droid named Hyuru Hyuru.
- In the Sailor Moon video game, droids were the stock enemies. Several named droids appeared, including Atsugessho, Furaiki, Dumble, Avogadora, and Jamanen, but there were also three types of generic Droids present. These droids were referred to as Shade, Large Shade, and Heavy Shade; Shades and Large Shades resembled the robotic-droids from the manga, while Heavy Shades were a shorter and fatter variation of those.
