Member of the Shitennou
Knight of patience and harmony
Jadeite basically retains the same appearance he does in the manga, but a notable change is that the outline on his uniform is blue, not red.
In the first episode, Jadeite is seen creating a youma from the ground in an unidentified location. Later in the episode, he is seen watching Sailor Moon from a crystal ball and says that she is "not bad at all".
In the second episode, Jadeite is scolded by Queen Beryl for not finding the Silver Crystal. As he walks away, he creates another youma to collect energy, brainwash Tokyo, and find the Silver Crystal. Later, when Sailor Moon defeats the youma, Jadeite watches from atop a building, angered that she has once again defeated his minion.
Jadeite is berated by Queen Beryl, as well as fellow Shitennou, Nephrite and Zoisite, for his failures. Taking it into his own hands to confront the Senshi himself, he drives the six o'clock bus from Rei Hino's shrine, and abducts passengers on the bus to transport them to the Dark Kingdom as a way of luring the Sailor Senshi into a trap. One of his victims was Rei Hino, who he felt attraction towards. Usagi, in the disguise of a stewardess, boards the bus as it teleports into the Dark Kingdom. She then transforms into Sailor Moon, allowing Sailor Mercury to reach the Dark Kingdom as well. The Sailor Senshi try to fight Jadeite, but he is able to get the better of them and attempts to freeze them. Rei confronts Jadeite, and is revealed to be Sailor Mars. She transforms and Sailor Moon binds him with her tiara. Sailor Mars then uses Akuryo Taisan against Jadeite, causing him to flee.
Jadeite appears briefly in the fourth episode, returning from his painful encounter with Sailor Mars before he is marked by his superior, Kunzite. He also appears alongside the other Shitennou after Princess Dia is freed from Nephrite's Soul Shadow to confront the Sailor Senshi.
Powers and Abilities
Jadeite, like his fellow Shitennou, has the ability to teleport over long distances. He is capable of creating youma monsters from clay and can generate unusually strong cryokinetic/frigiokinetic blasts that can freeze things in solid ice. His ice/snow/frost-controlling abilities can even go on par against Sailor Mars' incredibly strong attacks over fire, flame and heat.
- Unlike the original anime, Jadeite clearly harbors strong romantic affections for Rei soon after he captures her for the first time; regardless of her not being in her regular, standard Sailor form as Sailor Mars.
- Unlike the manga, Jadeite survives Sailor Mars' and Sailor Moon's combination attack of pure moonlight and fire.
