Development Edit

Sailor Mercury's original costume design, like the others, was fully unique. It featured full-length sleeves, pink ribbons, shoulder guards, green accents, buttons on the stomach, and high-tech goggles. A later costume design that appeared in the Materials Collection book looked much more like the final product, only with a few differences. In the design, Mercury had long light blue sleeves with a long white line on each sleeve, jewelry attached to the gem in the middle of her bow, and a ribbon around her neck. It was also noted that if her gloves were removed, she would have a blue manicure and that when she creates fog, her earrings would shine blue. Edit


Etymology Edit

== In Japanese, the name for the planet Mercury is Suisei (水星), the first kanji meaning 'water' and the second indicating a celestial object. Although the Roman planet-name is used, Sailor Mercury's abilities are water-based due to this aspect of Japanese mythology and Chinese astrology. Also in mythology, the god Mercury was known to be very intelligent. This could explain Ami's intelligence. In Indian mythology, Mercury is called "Budha" which is a form of the word "Buddhi" (which means "intelligence"). A first century poet named Manilius described the planet Mercury as vivacious, inconstant, and curious, which also adds to Ami's curiosity.

Trivia Edit

As Sailor Mercury, Ami's eyes become a lighter shade of blue. Edit

In Roman mythology, Mercury was a messenger of the gods, as well as the son of Jupiter. Edit

Sailor Mercury's Spectre Sister counterpart was Berthier. Her Witches 5 counterpart was Viluy. Her Sailor Quartet counterpartner was PallaPalla/Sailor Pallas. The Shitennou general she's paired up with in Takeuchi's artwork is Zoisite. Edit

Sailor Mercury is the only Sailor Senshi who has never destroyed a villain by her own devices. This does not include footsoldiers of the villains. Edit

Sailor Mercury is on the cover art of volume two in the reprint manga and volume two in the Kaizoban edition of the manga. Edit

Sailor Mercury's planetary symbol (☿) stands for the Roman god's winged helmet and the wand of Hermes (the god's Greek name). The difference between the symbol used in the Anime/Manga and the scientific symbol is, that the transforming sign has a heart instead of a circle. Edit

It can also be understood, as if the cross (matter) is lower than the circle (divine spirit). Edit

On the very top is the crescent (mind). In alchemy, mercury (quicksilver) used to be symbolized by ☿. Edit
