Does anyone else here actually prefer the attack names DiC used in their dub over the original Japanese names? Even though the original attack names were already in English, I just feel like the DiC names make more logical sense. Shine Aqua Illusion is a cool attack but it's name makes zero sense. Nothing abut the attack shines any nor is there any illusion involved, so why name it that? Mercury Ice Storm Blast actually makes sense as to what is actually happening with the attack. I also feel like Moon Tiara Magic has a much more of a magical girl feeling to the name than Moon Tiara Action.

My preferences (DiC/Pioneer/CWi attacks in bold)

Moon Tiara Magic >>> Moon Tiara Action
Moon Tiara Stardust >>> Moon Tiara Vaporize
(I know that this isn't the same attack, but I felt it made the most sense to compare these attack phrases)
Cosmic Moon Power >>> Moon Healing Escalation (offensive)
Moon Healing Escalation >>> Moon Healing Activation
Moon Princess Halation >> Moon Princess Elimination > Moon Scepter Elimination >> Moon Scepter Activation

Mercury Bubbles Blast >>> Sabao (Soap Bubbles) Spray
Mercury Ice Bubbles Freeze = Sabao Spray Freezing
Mercury Ice Storm Blast = Shine Aqua Illusion

Mars Firestorm Flash >>> Mars Fire Ignite = Fire Soul
Mars Firebird Strike >>> Fire Soul Bird
Burning Mandala >> Mars Fire Surround > Celestial Fire Surround > Mars Celestial Fire Surround
Mars Flame Sniper >>> Mars Flame Shooter

**I like "Mars Fireballs Charge" and its variants in and of themselves, but as substitutes for the completely non-fire-based "Akuryo Taisan/Evil Spirits Begone" they just made zero sense.

Jupiter Thunderbolt(s) Crash > Supreme Thunder = Supreme Thunder Crash = Jupiter Thunder Crash
Jupiter Thunderclap Zap = Sparkling Wide Pressure > Jupiter Thunder Power

Venus Crescent Beam Smash = Crescent Beam Smash > Crescent Beam > Venus Crescent Beam Crash
Venus Love Chain Encircle/Whip/Harness/Knock-Out >>> Venus Love-Me Chain
Venus Meteor Shower >> Crescent Beam Shower

The Outers had basically the same attacks in the dub, only they sometimes put their planet before the rest of the phrase. "Pluto Deadly Scream" is the only one that's slightly different, and I have no preference between it and "Dead Scream."

There are probably some variations that I missed, but I believe I've covered all the main attacks.

Nah I personally prefer the original attacks. They were more ornate and flowery. The dub attacks were just boring.

I agree. Some dub attacks were neat but I much prefer the originals

just a correction, "Mercury Ice Storm Blast" and "Shine Aqua Illusion" are 2 different attacks, the "Ice Storm Blast" was only in the DiC dubs and it was basically just the upgraded version of Sabao Spray/Mercury Bubbles with freezing properties, hence "Ice Storm Blast" was just DiC's translation of "Sabao Spray Freezing". Shine Aqua Illusion was actually Mercury's next new attack she gained in R which DiC also used in its dub.
