Pegasus insists that the Super Sailor Senshi not go to the Dead Moon right away, as they are far too strong and dangerous. He is then asked by a suspicious Super Sailor Moon of who he truly is: That he is Helios, the high-priest of Elysion and guardian of lovely dreams.
Super Sailor Chibi Moon reveals that she had known all along of Pegasus not being capable of unleashing the full abilities and power of the Golden Crystal he carried. Pegasus urges them all to find the one who can utilize the Golden Crystal to defeat Queen Nehellenia before it is too late for both Earth and Elysion.
Changes From the Manga
- Pegasus was already captured by the Dead Moon Circus, and he only projected himself to get help from the princess.
- While the curse did have Mamoru bed-ridden for a time, he still endured the pain and fought along side the Senshi to defeat Nehellenia.
