If not then what does she rank when it comes to that (e.g. top 5, top 10)? What about when it comes to your favourite character from ALL fictional works (films, books, tv series, comics, stories etc.).

Sailor Saturn is my favorite Sailor Guardian, but she is far, far, from anywhere of my favorite characters in anime, let alone fiction in general. In fact, she's not even my favorite Sailor Moon character in the show (Queen Serenity is). In fact, there's no one in Sailor Moon who would even be in the top 30 or so.

Sailor Moon as a franchise is definitely one of my favorites and I like the characters, but there are so many other individual characters I simply adore more.

You must be a huge anime fan then.

I find it interesting that you say that SM is one of your favourite franchises but that the characters in it are not even in your top 30.

Yeah Rei Hino/Sailor Mars is my all time favorite character in all of anime and manga. I do have other favorite anime and manga characters too, but Rei Hino/Sailor Mars has always been my number 1 favorite character for a very long time.

I'm not that big of an anime fan. It's just that I am old, and while there are lots of characters I *like* in Sailor Moon, there are lots of characters I love more due to watching more things.

And if I go into all media...MCU Loki, Hexadecimal, Data from Star Trek: TNG, Mega Man X, Rose from Street Fighter, Wemmick from Great Expectations, Anyanwu from Wild Seed...oh, yeah, I could go a VERY long while before even thinking of Sailor Moon characters.

That's because as much as I love Sailor Moon...I don't love it for the characters.

I love it for not only the aesthetics, but for the combinations that gave Sailor Moon its tone. It combined astrology and astronomy with ancient Greek/Roman myths, alongside elemental powers, and fairy tale trappings that were out of the darker, non-bowdlerized versions, and framed it all in a superhero team show.

My favorite Sailor Moon character is probably Usagi herself. And no while she would probably rank high as one of my favorite anime characters (I don’t watch a lot of anime to begin with) she wouldn’t rank anywhere near my favorite character in fiction she might get in the top 100. MAYBE.

Interesting reason. Don't think I've heard it before.

My favorite is :minako:. She acts like her namesake and acts for romance even though she never can find true love. I love her from the 90s anime and she did have funny moments like trying to play nurse but it ended up backfiring. You can't also forget the scene where she stole her own pure heart and laughs.

Michiru/Sailor Neptune is my favorite senshi and while she isn't quite my all-time favorite, she's definitely up there. I'd rank her along with Asuka Langley Sohyru from Evangelion and Utena Tenjou and Anthy Himemiya from Revolutionary Girl Utena as one of my all time favorites.
