how do you rate the sailor guardians? it can be a personal ranking like "this character is my favorite". You can rank them based on statistics. I also want to hear why they're your favorite or least favorite. It can go from best to worse or worse to best.

My favs for the Inners from favorite to least are Rei, Usagi, Makoto, Minako, Chibi-usa, and Ami. For the Outers it's Haruka, Setsuna, Hotaru, and Michiru. For the Starlights it's Seiya, Yaten, and Taiki. I'll post my detailed thoughts of it later on.

Cuddling With Ami-Chan!
heres my ranking I'm going to rank them from 10 being my least favorite to 1 being my favorite so here goes:

10: Zoisite/Zoycite (god I hated his/her cowardly killing of Nephrite/Nephlite)
9: Chibi-Usa/Sailor Chibi-Moon(just for the cuteness and the fights between her and Usagi XD)
8: Naru/Molly (felt bad about her being pushed aside in later arcs in favor of the other Senshi and I really liked her relationship with Nephrite/Nephlite in the 90s anime)
7: Rei Hino/Sailor Mars (I prefer her 90s anime version mainly because to me she has a personality)
6: Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter (how could not love Mako-Chan?)
5: Minako Aino/Sailor Venus/Sailor V (got this spot because of Nurse Minako XD)
4: Nephrite/Nephlite (the coolest of Beryls Generals)
3: Mamoru Chiba/Darrien Shields/Tuxedo Mask (I loved his little spats with Usagi especially in the DiC dub when he called her Meatball Head)
2: Usagi Tsukino/Serena Tsukino/Sailor Moon (everyone loves Usako lol)

before I reveal my number one favorite some honorable mentions:

Queen Beryl
Professor Tomoe
Sailor Galaxia
Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn
Haruka Tenoh/Sailor Uranus
Michiru/Sailor Neptune
Setsuna Meioh/Sailor Pluto

and now my number 1 pick is.....

1. Ami Mizuno/Amy Mizuno/Sailor Mercury (pretty obvious lol I love Ami-Chan to death wish she was real and a tad older XD, what's not to like about her she's gorgeous, got blue hair, extremely smart, very sweet and unlike Rei doesn't have a mean bone in her body)

90's anime
1. Makoto and Artemis - Makoto's personality is so cool. Artemis is sure kawai XD And he even tries to rescue Senshi during the fight often
2. Hotaru and Usagi
3. Rei and Ami
4. Seiya
5. Galaxia and Setsuna
6. Taiki and Yaten
7. Chibi Chibi
8. Michiru
9. Haruka
10. Chibiusa - however, she is very high in Manga version
11. Minako

Hating : Luna - She doesn't even help Senshi while fighting, but just keep doing nothing, and even doing bad things to Artemis. Luna even dated 4 other people. She is just.....I can't say anymore about her.

Here is my Sailor Guardian ranking:

1. Rei Hino/Sailor Mars

2. Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn

3. Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter

4. Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury

5. Setsuna Meioh/Sailor Pluto

6. Minako Aino/Sailor Venus

7. Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon

8. Chibiusa Tsukino/Sailor Chibi Moon

9. Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune

10. Haruka Tenoh/Sailor Uranus

The reason I vote for Sailor Mars as number 1 because she is my favorite Sailor Guardian and I can relate to her too. Now for the reason I vote Sailor Uranus as number 10 is because I don't like her personalty and I don't like the way both her and Sailor Neptune treat the Inner Sailor Guardians.

Ooh, this can be a toughie. Not to mention, my opinions have fluctuated a lot over the years...

1. Sailor Neptune -- My all time favorite!! Elegant, quiet, artsy, beautiful, and a little tragic -- she's not only my favorite Sailor Senshi, but one of my favorite characters in animation, period.
2. Sailor Uranus -- Neptune's amazing partner :) I love her, as she's a great, conflicted character in her own right. Every time she and Neptune show up my eyes are glued to the screen.
3. Sailor Moon -- I love her sweetness and innocence. I love how she manages to see the good in everyone :)
4. Sailor Mars -- Love her fiery, sassy personality and her sweet friendship with Usagi.
5. Sailor Saturn -- Loved her in S, felt so sorry for her w/ her tragic backstory... just hate that she got shafted after the Nehelenia arc.
6. Sailor Venus -- FUNNY! Minako is so damn entertaining to watch, and I love her tragic backstory, too.
7. Sailor Mercury -- Cute, smart, and has some fun character episodes.
8. Sailor Starfighter -- He/she was nice, and I enjoyed the relationship with Usagi.
9. Sailor Starhealer -- Beautiful!! Funny and sassy, plus she loves cats like me.
10. Sailor Jupiter -- Strong, courageous, determined... she's just a little less interesting to me than the other senshi.
11. Sailor Pluto -- I'm mostly ranking this according to the anime... if this were the manga, Pluto would probably be ranked higher. I love her character in the manga, but she's so flat and underdeveloped in the anime... there's not too much there to have an opinion on.
12. Sailor Starmaker -- Meh... Her personality is ok, but I don't care for her looks or voice.
13. Sailor Chibimoon -- I'm sorry, I know it can be cliche to hate on Chibiusa... but she's just so obnoxious, selfish, and grating at times, especially in the R season, and I don't like her character design either. She does become more tolerable later on, and I did enjoy her friendship with Hotaru, but other than that... not one of my favorite characters.

  1. Saturn -- the soldier that should never have awakened, but did, opposed and misunderstood, there is so much to love about this severe sentinel of destruction.
  2. ChibiMoon -- to be clear, in R as Chibi-Usa...she is a pain and unlikeable. Then she gets a little better, but she doesn't get to be a great character until S...where she actually becomes a much better character than her future mother. (She should have been the true Messiah, not Sailor Moon).
  3. Mercury -- The genius girl who is also kind, I always have a soft spot for the bookish, nerdy ones.
  4. Jupiter -- Kind, loyal, and tough, she remains a unique character to this day.
  5. Pluto -- I love how we don't know much about her, and yet she plays a critical role.
  6. Moon -- She's okay, although her early whining is grating. I do like how she does grow out of being immature and a leader of her own, but I hate how the series goes on, she becomes the incarnation of all that is good.
  7. Uranus -Her good point is that she is willing to challenge gender norms. Her bad point is her challenge leads to someone losing their lives.
  8. Venus - First is the serious leader, then turns into the goofball of the group. Sailor Moon was the lovable goofball, though, so what purpose does she serve?
  9. Neptune - She's described as perfect, which makes her unlikeable to me.
  10. Mars - Hypocritical temper-filled girl who becomes the lancer. Her entire character archetype is one of my least favorites.

I remember even as a kid thinking there was something odd about having two blonde Sailor Scouts who both had their own talking cat guardian but didn’t think too much about it because the older seasons (more so the dub than the Japanese version) had Mina act more mature and the archetypal “big sister” of the group even though she had her moments (being late for school in the kindergarten episode, the Nurse Venus fiasco) she was overall more mature and refined than the other girls bringing more veteran experience as a Scout to the table and feeling somewhat like a mentor to Serena.

But then a combination of the Japanese version exaggerating her Usagi esque quality to the point the old dub really couldn’t ignore and the switch from Stephanie Morgenstern to Emilie Barlow made me think wow Mina got really dumb. She’s like Serena’s twin sister now around S. Not that it was always a bad thing (Mina wanting her pure heart to get stolen was a riot) but I did kind of wish the show allowed Mina to feel more distinguished than Serena.

Not that they were exact clones. Mina remained the athlete of the gang while Serena was anything but and Mina was a celebrity chaser while Serena was more of a space case clutz but all the same.

Mars - Hypocritical temper-filled girl who becomes the lancer. Her entire character archetype is one of my least favorites.
I get why people don’t like Raye but I love everything about her. From her design (huge crush on her when I was 6) to her constant bickering with Serena while still being her closest friend when the chips are down. Katie Griffin’s comments about Raye and defending her made me love her even more

Wow, this is going to be super hard since I honestly love something about all of them. I’m basing most of my rankings off of the 90’s anime and a little of the manga. I haven’t gotten around to watching Crystal yet. (I’m sort of afraid x_x)

1. :minako: Love her personality, energy, and humor. Her one off episodes were some of the best. (The giving blood every day to show she has pure heart episode and nurse episodes stick out in my head)
2. :usagi:The one I relate most to, personally. Unconfident at first, she had to push herself to become a leader
3. :rei: Love Rei’s competition with Usagi despite her caring for Usagi more than any of the others (at least in my opinion)
4. :mako:: My favorite fighting style overall. Love to watch her kick some butt.
5. :ami:: Sweet, smart, and the much needed down to earth one.
6. :setsuna:: Wish we got more time with her as she never got enough screen time. Great when she was.
7.:haruka:: outer scouts never appealed to me as much, but admire Uranus’ resolve
8.:mihiru: : similar feelings to Uranus. Like Neptune’s elegance.
9.:hotaru:: another one without much screen time. Seemed like a sweetheart when she was.
10.:chibiusa:: Personally, was never a fan. Don’t hate her, but definitely my least favorite.
