Mercury Crystal Power, Make Up
Mākyurī Kurisutaru Pawā Meiku Appu
|Transformation phrase for...|
Mercury uses it to turn into a stronger form (called the "Super" form in the anime), as well as turn into a form similar to Eternal Sailor Moon's, called "Sailor Star Mercury" by fans, in Act 49 of the manga when the Soldiers give power to Sailor Moon so that she can defeat Queen Nehellenia. This form only seems to appear in that act and in an artbook illustration, however.
In the manga, Ami uses her Sailor Crystal, a heart-shaped crystal called the Mercury Crystal, to do this transformation (which explains the name). As with all manga transformations, this one is instant as well, but comes with an upgraded outfit similar to the anime Super outfit, with a longer back bow, more earrings, a star on the choker, and a heart on her bow. When she upgrades again in Act 49, the heart on her bow becomes a star, and, based on the artbook illustration, most of her other accents change to stars as well in this form. She just raises her hand and became Sailor Mercury right away.
First Anime Series
The blue crystal with the mercury symbol and a harp appeared. Then Ami held up the Crystal-less Crystal Change Rod, where the crystal attaches at one end. She then swept the Rod over her head and around her body while a stream of silver water emitted from it, forming her leotard, gloves, and boots. A sparkling ripple expanded over her body, a rush of bubbles formed the rest of her sailor fuku, and Sailor Mercury finished in her final pose.
In the Ami's First Love special episode, a different version of this transformation appeared. After she held up the Crystal Change Rod, she appeared glowing blue with her tiara gem sparkling on her forehead. A stream of water appeared and formed a circle around her, then engulfed her completely. She emerged from the water fully clothed in her sailor fuku. The ending frame was also different, as there was no lyre or symbol behind her.The animation in this case features Mercury shown in a watery silhouette at a far angle as she gives a speech to Bonnone and her tiara stone glows bright blue. She then breaks from the silhouette fully transformed, and appears in profile before twirling into a pose against a yellow, blue, and pink background.
- Sailor Moon SuperS - Various_Emotion - Used to transform into Super Sailor Mercury in the Sailor Moon SuperS game for the game console Sega Saturn. This transformation does not appear in the anime, however is somewhat similar to it. After Ami shouts out, "Mercury Crystal Power, Make-Up!" She instantly appears and strike for her pose, the differences are when Ami shouts out, "Mercury Crystal Power, Make-Up!" the background does not changes it remains black, after that the background where she turns around and at the end where she poses, the glyph of the planet Mercury appears behind her instead of the harp.
