Sailor Venus's Chain (manga and PGSM)
Act 11 Reunion - Endymion (manga)
Venus Love-Me Chain is an attack used by Sailor Venus in all versions of the franchise.
This attack was used by Sailor Venus for the second and third seasons. The chain's links are shaped like golden glowing hearts. It can be used like a rope to bind enemies and save her allies, even herself.
It was once used in the third movie in her Super Sailor form as Super Sailor Venus as well as early episodes of the fourth season. In the DiC English dub it was called two different names. When it was used to trap her enemies it was called Venus Love Chain Encircle, and when it was used as an offensive attack it was called Venus Love Chain Blast. When Cloverway took over, it was just called Venus Love Chain Encircle as both when she traps her enemies and as an offensive attack.
In the manga, Sailor Venus would remove the chain from her waist and use it to attack her opponent.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
In Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon, she can perform this attack with a different animation compared with the anime version but with the same orange and pink colours. Sailor Venus performed the attack the same way she did in the manga. Once removed, Sailor Venus' chain could extend to a very large size, and she used it as a whip to strike her enemies or to block attacks. In the Kirari Super Live, she attacked Zoisite and gold dust fell down upon her afterwards.
Sailor Venus first used this attack in Act 11 against a brainwashed Motoki Furuhata. She wrapped her chain around him, called out the attack name, and the chain shocked him with violently strong golden light. She has used this attack several times in the series. In Act 27 - Infinity 1, Premonition (Part 2) this attack was performed the same way as done in first anime against a cat Daimon.
This attack appeared for the first time in the very first musical, Sailor Moon - Gaiden Dark Kingdom Fukkatsu Hen, where it was used against Kunzite.
This attack appeared in several video games.
