TOP 5 WORST AND BEST SAILOR MOON PHAGES



The uninspired plot and often terrible animation of the fifth season's monster-of-the-day episodes meant there was a general lack of good fight scenes and interesting character designs. However, there are a few gems scattered throughout the episodes, as well as some incredibly terrible ones. List your own fave/hated Phages in the comments!



~~*~~BEST~~*~~

5.) SAILOR MUSICIAN



Looking like a rock and roll performer at a Renaissance faire, Sailor Musician's laser firing keytar put up a decent enough fight. He is one of the few Phages to be dispatched by the Sailor Team rather than the Starlights, getting blasted with a direct hit from Sailor Venus' 'Love and Beauty Shock'.

4.) SAILOR SOMMELIER



This rather dapper Phage looks like something that could have popped out of Professor's Tomoe's oven. After sucking up Sailor Neptune's attack, this monster gets the distinction of being taken down with a flying pizza by Eternal Sailor Moon.

3.) SAILOR ARTIST



This creepy, made-of-clay Phage is unique in that it never says anything aside from "shippai sakuda"(失敗作だ), which means "it's a failed work." Its deranged demeanor makes it a formidable foe, and is one of the few Phages that have a personal connection to the Sailor Team, as Sailor Artist is really Rei's sculptor cousin, Kengo.

2.) SAILOR STEWARDESS



The flight attendants from Hell, this trio of Phages were able to batten down the hatches against a plane full of Sailor Senshi, and attacked with oxygen masks, life preservers, and drink carts. Please return to your seat!

1.) SAILOR GAMER



Though this battle features more harrowing displays of incompetency from the Sailor Team in favor of the Starlights, it's hard to hold it against them this time. Sailor Gamer is by far the baddest of the bad amongst the Phages, dishing out numerous powerful video-game themed attacks in quick succession. She also rips off Sailor Mercury's visor!

~~*~~WORST~~*~~

5.) SAILOR DOCTOR



Not only is his design lazy, but Sailor Doctor's also been done before (in a superior way) with the Droid Pharmakon. All he seems to be is a skinny guy with x-ray glasses and a sizable shank. At least we get to see Sailor Mercury blow him away with a geyser of water.

4.) SAILOR GUTS



So Phages are supposed to be a 'parody' of Sailor Senshi - that can't be exemplified anymore than with Sailor Guts. With his mock schoolgirl uniform, and disgusting sweat based attack (that everyone needs to comment smells badly), this is a terrible monster through and through.

3.) SAILOR DIRECTOR



How effective can film roll be as a projectile? Also, what purpose does having most of your left arm be a megaphone serve? Why anyone thought this 'monster' could be seen as a threat is beyond me. As Sailor Director walks up the stairs towards Seiya in what's probably supposed to be a menacing way, you have to wonder what her and her lame 3D glasses can possibly do.

2.) SAILOR TEACHER



Like Sailor Doctor, this is another Phage with the physique of an out of shape, middle aged man. He throws chalk (impressive), and attacks with a teacher's pointer. Heck, Sailor Mercury's tackle to save him from being blasted by Sailor Starmaker essentially finished him off...

1.) SAILOR OJOU



Sailor Ojou is not particularly strong, fast or durable. She has no other powers aside from taking off her clothes in one motion, and cracking a whip. Not even a super powered whip that shoots electricity or whatever. The Sailor Team basically fought a really narcissistic dominatrix. A hard punch to the jaw/boob should have ended her, so it baffles the mind as to why the assembled Senshi couldn't just blast her to Hell and back with their various attacks.
