|セーラーマーズ (Sērā Māzu)|
Rei Hino, Sailor Mars, Princess Mars
Sailor Mars, Super Sailor Mars, Eternal Sailor Mars
Throughout the various incarnations of the series, Sailor Mars was given various titles and/or referred to herself with various titles. They include: "Soldier of War", "Soldier of Flame and Passion" under the guardianship of the "Fire Planet", (and depending on the continuity), "Soldier of Flame", and "Soldier of Passion." She was also called "The Guardian of War" by Neo-Queen Serenity.
Rei's awakening as Sailor Mars in the manga was shown in Act 3. After Rei and Usagi were transported into another world with victims of the kidnappings, Luna sent Ami to help Usagi. Rei was caught by Jadeite, and Usagi transformed into Sailor Moon and used Moon Frisbee, freeing Rei and restraining Jadeite. Luna orders Sailor Mercury to throw the extra pen she had given her earlier. As the pen passes by Rei, the symbol of Mars appears on her forehead, transforming her into Sailor Mars. She calls Phobos and Deimos, and performs Akuryo Taisan, turning Jadeite into dust. The Sailor Senshi are transported, along with the other victims of the kidnappings. Luna and Sailor Moon claim they are happy that they have found the third Senshi.
As Sailor Mars, she wore the standard Senshi fuku and the dominant color of the fuku was red while the accent color was purple. Her earrings, collar, center of the front bow, skirt, back bow, the gem on her tiara, the elbow fittings of her gloves, choker, and her shoes/heels were red, and her front bow was purple. Her collar had one stripe and her earrings were five pointed dangling red stars.
In the musicals, Sailor Mars's fuku was significantly different. Her elbow fittings, bows, and sleeves were purple, and her skirt, collar, and choker were red. Later in another version of the fuku, her sleeves became red. The center of her front bow was a star and was golden, and it had a red gem in the middle. Unlike the red star earrings that Sailor Mars had in the other versions of Sailor Moon, they were gold instead. She also had a golden star on her choker (when she is not supposed to have one until the "Super" upgrade). All of the trim on her fuku was gold.
In the manga and anime, Rei uses her Transformation Pen to transform into Sailor Mars, while in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon; she uses her Jewelry Star Bracelet. It is unknown what item she used to transform with in the musicals.
In the manga, when Sailor Moon became Super Sailor Moon for the first time, the center of Sailor Mars's front bow became a heart, but she did not receive the "Super" upgrade at the time.
When she received the "Super" upgrade, her choker had a five-pointed golden star on it, the bottom of her sleeves became transparent, the center of her front bow became a heart, and her back bow was enlarged and lengthened.
In the musicals, her fuku was essentially faithful to her "Super" fuku in the manga and anime. Her front bow was purple/lavender. Her collar, elbow fittings on her gloves, back bow, and choker were red. Her skirt had two layers instead of one (in the manga, she only has a skirt with two layers when she receives her "Eternal" upgrade). The top layer of her skirt was red, while the bottom layer was purple/lavender. Her choker ornament was a golden star with a red circle and the symbol of Mars in the center of it. The center of her front bow was heart-shaped with a red gem ringed in gold. Her earrings were five-pointed stars, and her shoes were slightly different from those in the anime and manga, as they had a strap across the instep.
In the manga, Rei uses the Mars Crystal she receives from her two guardians, Phobos and Deimos, to transform into Super Sailor Mars. In the anime, she uses her Crystal Change Rod. It is unknown what item she uses to transform into Super Sailor Mars in the musicals.
After being killed by Sailor Galaxia in Act 49 of the Stars manga, Sailor Mars is revived. Once revived she wears her Super Sailor outfit with bracelets similar to the ones Galaxia wears. The bracelets are gold with a gem on each bracelet, one purple and one green. This form only appeared in the manga.
Silver Millennium, Sailor Mars was the princess/ruler of her planet Mars, and she was given the duty of protecting Princess Serenity, along with Sailors/Princesses Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus. She wore a red strap dress that went past her feet, and she wore a red choker that was tied into a ribbon at the back. She wore a necklace and small red stud earrings. She also wore high-heeled shoes with straps that were also red. The symbol of Mars was present on her forehead. She dwelt in Phobos and Deimos Castle.

DevelopmentEditLike the other members of the Sailor Senshi, Sailor Mars's original design were fully unique. It featured an alternate bow, double shoulder guards, plate-armor, elaborate jewelry, and a gold rimmed mask. Her trademark high-heeled shoes were also already present. Also, the red pendant worn on her belt was also going to be worn on a necklace in her civilian form and could also produce fire. Originally, she could also shoot fire laser beams from her fingertips. Another note stated that in her civilian form, her eyes were always purple while in her Senshi form, her eyes were red.
It is noted that her outfit as Sailor Mars echoes the color of miko robes, making the character most tied into tradition.
