Queen of the Black Lightning
Rihoko Yoshida (original anime)
Queen Badiane is an evil queen from another world. Her main goal is to capture dream energy from all the children of Earth to feed her Black Dream Hole. She was defeated by Super Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Moon with the help of the other Sailor Senshi's powers, using Moon Gorgeous Meditation. Badiane is also known as Badiyanu in the Japanese version.
Queen Badiane was the villain of the Sailor Moon SuperS movie. She was a witch from another world who planned to kidnap children and bring them to Marzipan Castle, where she would seal them in Dream Coffins and use the energy generated by their dreams to power her Black Dream Hole. Her purpose was to grow the Black Dream Hole large enough that it would swallow everything, putting it under her control. She enlisted the aid of four fairies, Perle, Poupelin, Banane, and Orangeat, for help in this endeavor.
The four faeries agreed to help her, but Perle later renounced his loyalty to Badiane after befriending ChibiUsa. In order to capture children, Badiane has the faeries play a magical tune on special flutes, causing them to fall into a trance. Chibiusa is one of the children abducted, and Badiane discovers that she has an extraordinary amount of energy. She decides to use the girl as a primary source for opening the Black Dream Hole. Perle helps the Sailor Senshi find their way to Marzipannu Castle, where they fight the other faeries, and finally reach Badiane. Badiane is much too powerful for the senshi, but Sailor Moon enters the Black Dream Hole, where she finds herself immediately placed with a Dream Coffin. Luckily, she fights her way out of the illusion and breaks free of the Dream Coffin.
Sailor Moon fights her way through the Black Dream Hole to find the unconscious Chibiusa. Sailor Moon is injured while protecting ChibiUsa, but the light of her Silver Crystal shines out of the Black Dream Hole for the other senshi to see. They then feed their powers to Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon, who is brought back to consciousness by the other senshi's energy. Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon then use a combined attack, Moon Gorgeous Meditation, in order to destroy the Black Dream Hole, along with Badiane.
- Badiane is one of the French words for star anise. Badiane and her underlings all have names which are French words relating to sweets and desserts.
- In the Materials Collection, Naoko Takeuchi states that star anise are attached all over Badiane's body as accessories, even as earrings. Ms. Takeuchi also says that "her hair has the image of twisted bread. On her chest, the star anise and wings are attached directly to her skin. Her hair and skirt are pitch black."
