Dark Kingdom Arc
Black Moon Arc
When Mamoru becomes Tuxedo Mask, he dons a black tuxedo, with yellow buttons and a black cape (lined with red). The jacket is left open to reveal his white dress shirt. He also wears white gloves and a white mask that covers his eyes; at times the mask seems to cover his eyes and other times the mask is merely an outline, leaving his eyes visible. The final touch of his disguise is a black top hat.
DevelopmentIn the early stages of development, it has been said that Naoko originally called him by the codename "Mysterious 2098 Face."
Reception and Influence
- Naoko Takeuchi has stated that "Tuxedo Mask takes the place of Sailor Earth."
- On the Sailor Moon S drama CD, Tohru Furuya gave a voice sample of Tuxedo Mask's transformation phrase by shouting "Tuxedo Power, Make Up!". It was the only time this phrase was officially recorded.
