The Shadow Galactica is the empire that Sailorgalaxia is creating by destroying
and taking over planets in the galaxy. She steals the Sailor Crystals from the
Sailor Senshi of each planet and star; once this is done, she then destroys the
planets. Working for her are the Animamates, who are controlled by Galaxia's
bracelets; the bracelets give the Animamates power, but this power comes at the
expense of their own wills and even their lives. Galaxia promises to make the
Animamates true Sailor Senshi if they destroy their planets' guardian soldiers
and steal this galaxy's Sailor Senshi's Sailor Crystals. However, Galaxia is
only using them to get the Sailor Crystals.
Galaxia resides in the Galactica Palace. The palace
is located in the Zero Star of Saggitarius, the center of the universe where
the Galaxy Cauldron is found. (The Cauldron is where all Star Seeds are born.)
The following characters are the Animamates. In their desires to become real
Sailor Senshi with their own Sailor Crystals, they killed the true Sailor
Senshi of their planets.
Iron Mouse is originally from the planet Chuu. She appears in Act 43 in the
Fantastic Music Hall during the joint concert between the Three Lights and
Kaioh Michiru. She "disguises" by wearing shades. After the concert ends,
she attacks the Sailor Senshi with Galactica
Crunch. Iron Mouse absorbs Uranus's Space Turbulence and Neptune's
Submarine Violin Tide attacks, but she is destroyed by SailorStarhealer's
Star Sensitive Inferno.
Aluminum Siren originates from the planet Mermaid. In Act 44, she attacks Usagi
and Seiya on the roof of Juuban High School, having sensed Seiya's power. Her
attack is Galactica Tsunami. She uses her hair
to capture Mercury and Jupiter, then destroys their bodies and takes their Sailor
Crystals. Aluminum Siren is killed by Starfighter's Star Serious Laser and
Starmaker's Star Gentle Uterus.
Lead Crow comes from the planet Coronis, the same planet from which Hino Rei's
crows, Phobos and Deimos, originate. In Act 45, Lead Crow, the third Animamate,
goes to the Hikawa Shrine to confront Phobos and Deimos. She uses her attack,
Galactica Tornado against them, and she
manages to kill them and obtain their Star Seeds. She captures Venus and Mars
but is killed by Eternal Sailormoon's Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss attack.
In Act 45, Sailor Tin Nyanko enters Juuban High School as Suzu Nyanko, a foreign
exchange student from Libya. She says "mew" a lot. Suzu immediately attaches
herself to Usagi and warns her to be wary of the Three Lights. Luna and Artemis
sense Tin Nyanko's prescence and rush to Juuban to confront her, calling her a
"fake cat." In Act 46, Tin Nyanko calls Luna and Artemis fake cats too, as well
as traitors, then turns them into their human forms. She tells them that she
killed SailorMau, the Sailor Senshi of all three's home planet. Tin Nyanko uses
her attack, Galactica Puppet on Luna and Artemis,
but Eternal Sailormoon takes the attack for them. Tin Nyanko again tries to
blast the pair but hits Diana; on her next try, she succeeds. The attack reverts
the three to cat form, but they are seriously injured and are unable to speak.
Tin Nyanko is struck by Starfighter's Star Serious Laser but manages to escape;
however, for her failure, Galaxia kills her.
Sailors Lethe and
In Act 48, Sailor Lethe and Sailor Mnemosyne appear as the guardians of the two
Desert Rivers, the outer moats of the Galactica Palace. Lethe is the guardian
of the River of Oblivion and Mnemosyne is the guardian of the River of Memory.
Originally, Lethe comes from the planet Lethe, while Mnemosyne comes from the
planet Mnemosyne. (The two planets are probably twin planets.)
Sailormoon, Princess Kakyuu, ChibiChibi, and the Starlights enter the door to the
Zero Star of Saggitarius and appear in a desert. Lethe, wearing a hooded cloak,
introduces herself as the ferryman of the boat that crosses the sand river. The
senshi get into the boat, but the sand turns into water and they "drown." Usagi,
in civilian form, wakes with no memory; she is confused at Lethe's personal
questions, and she can only watch blankly as Lethe kills Luna, Artemis, and Diana
in front of her. Lethe then uses her Galactica Musotis
Alpastonis attack on Usagi and is about to kill her when Mnemosyne
interferes; Mnemosyne wants to let Galaxia deal with Sailormoon. This triggers
Usagi's memory, and she transforms into Sailormoon; she swims to the surface of
the river. Mnemosyne then frees all the other senshi and gives Kakyuu some water
from the River of Memory.
Lethe is angry that Mnemosyne has betrayed her, but Mnemosyne doesn't want a Sailor
Senshi like herself to be hurt. It turns out that Lethe and Mnemosyne are also
Sailor Soldiers. Mnemosyne explains that their planets were constantly at war, and
when Galaxia came, their planets were destroyed. Now, they serve Galaxia in the
hope that she will end all Sailor Wars and bring about peace. They believe that
Sailormoon and the ginzuishou are the source of the Sailor Wars, and by destroying
her, the wars will end. Kakyuu protests, saying that there will always be wars no
matter what. However, Sailormoon tells them to kill her if that will solve the
problem. Sailormoon's selflessness make Lethe and Mnemosyne realize that even if
she should die, the wars will never end. They are about to let Eternal Sailormoon
and the others go when SailorPhi and Chi appear and kill the twins.
In Act 49, Eternal Sailormoon, Princess Kakyuu, and ChibiChibi come across a strange figure surrounded by butterflies and graves.
They first see crosses with the pictures of the three dead Starlights, and then
they see their own graves. Vines suddenly leap out of the ground and hold them
hostage. The woman introduces herself as Heavy Metal Papillon, the "soul hunter"
and the last Animamate. ("Papillon" means butterfly.) She is about to
burn them to death when Chibimoon and the
Sailor Quartet appear. Chibimoon uses her "Pink Lady's Freezing Kiss" to free
Sailormoon-tachi while the Sailor Quartet's "Amazoness Jungle Arrow" kills Heavy
Metal Papillon. Heavy Metal Papillon's fire attack is never named in the actual
manga, but in the Material Collection's book, it is called "Galactica Scales."
Sailor Phi and Sailor Chi
Sailor Phi first appears in Act 45 to report the failure of Aluminum Siren to
Galaxia. Phi and Chi appear to be the leaders of the Animamates. Their
official titles are the Star Gardeners of the Star Garden. In Act 48, Phi and
Chi kill Lethe and Mnemosyne for failing to kill the Sailor Senshi. In Act 49,
they confront the senshi just before they reach the Galactica Palace. Phi and
Chi send out their Galaxy Crystals to kill the senshi, but Princess Kakyuu
transforms into SailorKakyuu and destroys the crystals. Phi then uses her
Galactica Plants Blizzard attack but she
is killed by Eternal Sailormoon's Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss. Sailorchi
then stabs Kakyuu with her staff, killing her, and in return, Eternal
Sailormoon kills Chi.
Sailorgalaxia is the leader of the Shadow Galactica. She was born on a planet
that she deemed worthless; therefore, she thought that she, too, had no worth.
But one day, she discovered that she had the same power as a Sailor Senshi.
Believing herself to be the "chosen one", she thinks that being a mere Sailor
Senshi is just as bad as her previously worthless state. Galaxia therefore
seeks to have the strongest power and desires to live on the strongest planet
in the galaxy. She has destroyed many planets and collected all the Star Seeds
and Sailor Crystals from those planets' guardian soldiers. However, to become
the strongest, Galaxia must defeat Chaos; in order to do that, she needs the
strongest Sailor Crystal in the galaxy, Sailormoon's ginzuishou, which because
of its power is also the source of the Sailor Wars.
Galaxia first appears in Act 43 to kill Mamoru for his star seed; she later sends
out her Animamates to collect the other Sailor Senshi's Sailor Crystals, even
taking Mars and Venus's herself. She also confronts Usagi in the playground, but
it is not until Act 50 that the two finally have a true confrontation. Galaxia
mocks Sailormoon by first sending out the other soldiers to kill her; she then has
Mamoru kiss her feet and kneel down to her. She challenges Sailormoon, and the
other Sailor Soldier accepts. In Act 51, Galaxia uses her
Galactica Inflation and fights Sailormoon for
a bit before she shows Sailormoon the Galaxy Cauldron. Galaxia shoves the Galaxy
Crystal (where all the collected Sailor Crystals have been stored) into the
Cauldron, as well as Mamoru, and they are destroyed. Galaxia attacks Sailormoon
with her Galactica Super String and tells
Sailormoon that she will be sacrificed to Chaos, who is residing in the Cauldron,
so that her power will culminate with the Sailor Crystals. From this upsurge of
power, both Sailormoon and Chaos will be destroyed. As she offers Sailormoon to
Chaos, Galaxia is unexpectedly blasted by Chaos; she is saved from death by
Sailormoon. When Galaxia awakens, she demands to know why Sailormoon saved her;
she finally comes to understand the other girl's goodness and purity. Galaxia
believes that she has finally found the strongest planet when her bracelets fall
off, and she dies.
Chaos is the entity that merges with the Galaxy Cauldron. It is now the strongest
star in the galaxy, controlling the stars on the side of darkness. In the distant
future, it apparently becomes SailorChaos and defeats SailorCosmos, who returns to
the past as ChibiChibi. In the present, Chaos reveals that all the previous
enemies that the Sailor Senshi faced- Metallia, Death Phantom, Master Pharaoh 90,
and Nehelenia- were all incarnations of itself. Sailormoon represents the Star
Seeds of light. Chaos wants to absorb Sailormoon's power so that it can rule the
universe and be free of the Cauldron.
Sailormoon jumps into the Cauldron and calls to the Sailor Crystals to help her;
calling out "Eternal Power!" she and the crystals destroy Chaos. With Chaos'
death, all of its forms are absorbed into the Galaxy Cauldron. However, as the
Cosmos Guardian states, this state is uncertain; sometime in the future, they
might be reborn.
In SailorStars, the Sailor Senshi are killed off by Galaxia and the Animamates.
In Act 50, they are reborn under Galaxia's power as her servants; they wear
her bracelets and use her power in trying to kill Sailormoon. Their attack
names are similar to their normal attacks. They are eventually killed by
