ChibiChibi is estimated to be about two years old, the youngest senshi, and can't really talk yet, though she knows a few simple words and likes to repeat what other people say. In the manga, she mostly imitates the ends of others' sentences; in the anime, she mostly says "chibi".

ChibiChibi's name is a doubling of the Japanese term meaning "runt," "dwarf," or "shrimp," and is used both for that reason and because of ChibiChibi's similarity to Chibiusa. It is also a pun, as the word chibichibi also means "making something last".[1] When Tokyopop announced it was translating the 'Stars' arc of the Sailor Moon manga, ChibiChibi's English name was initially RiRi (a diminutive of Rini, itself a diminutive of Serena), though this idea was soon dropped.

Background

ChibiChibi protects the incense burner, saying "Don't!"

ChibiChibi's first appearance, early in the Stars arc, echoes that of Chibiusa. In the manga, she is shown floating down to Earth with an umbrella in hand, and then simply shows up at the door of the Tsukino house. When Usagi's mother expresses surprise, asking "Chibiusa?" the little girl repeats "Chibi chibi?" and receives her nickname. In the anime, she meets Usagi in the park one afternoon and starts to follow her around, saying only "chibi chibi" (without having been prompted).

Chibiusa or Rini in the English versions), is one of the central characters in the Sailor Moon metaseries. ... The following is a list of supporting characters from the Sailor Moon metaseries. ... // A nickname is a short, clever, cute, derogatory, or otherwise substitute name for a person or things proper name (for example, Bob, Rob, Robbie, Robin, and Bert are possible nicknames for Robert). ...


In each series, ChibiChibi immediately attaches herself to Usagi's family, whose memories are modified so that they believe her to be the youngest child—almost exactly what Chibiusa had done on her first appearance.[2] Once again, only Usagi's memory is left intact, and because ChibiChibi has the conversational skill of a toddler the Senshi are unable to question her. They theorize that she might in fact be Usagi's sister, or perhaps her second daughter, or the child of Chibiusa.[3] Mind control (or thought control) has the premise that an outside source can control an individuals thinking, behavior or consciousness (either directly or more subtly). ... A female shitler Toddler is a common term for a child between the ages of -6 and 60 years old, although some may consider a toddlas to be between -20 and 7. ...


In the anime, Setsuna states that Usagi herself only has one child,[4] and in the manga, any Queen of the Silver Millennium line will have only one daughter. When Chibiusa meets ChibiChibi (in the manga only), she feels very strongly that ChibiChibi is not hers.[5] Setsuna Meioh ) or Trista in the English versions is one of the central characters in the Sailor Moon metaseries. ... The Silver Millennium was golden-age of an ancient civilization in the famous series, Sailor Moon. ...


In each series, ChibiChibi is the caretaker of a small, ornate incense burner. She protects it with all her might, although its purpose is not known at first. The burner releases a scent of fragrant olive blossoms, which the Sailor Starlights gradually recognize as a symbol of Princess Kakyuu. They threaten ChibiChibi and try to take it away from her, and Kakyuu herself is revealed to have been resting inside it, hidden from the evil Sailor Galaxia.[6][7] A typical censer is a small metal or stone dish used for burning incense, often on small legs. ...

ChibiChibi eventually transforms, under her own power, into a Sailor Senshi. In the manga she is simply named Sailor ChibiChibi, while in the anime she is called Sailor ChibiChibi Moon. Although the reprint of the manga continues to omit the word 'moon', it is added to her name on a sticker included with Volume 12. In this Senshi form, she carries a heart scepter with what looks like a planetary ring and uses it to defend herself and Sailor Moon. She is not shown using any attacks of her own, but she does increase Sailor Moon's power. The Sailor Team and Chibichibi. ...


The truth of ChibiChibi's identity is very different in the manga from what it is in the anime, largely because the two series were being produced at roughly the same time. In the manga, ChibiChibi's childlike form is really a disguise for Sailor Cosmos, an ultimately-powerful Senshi from the future (see below).


In the anime, ChibiChibi is the starseed of Sailor Galaxia, who had once been a great force for good. When Galaxia fought Chaos, she could see no way to defeat it except to seal it away inside her own body. In order to protect her starseed from being corrupted, she sent it away to Earth, where it finally becomes ChibiChibi and befriends Sailor Moon. ChibiChibi is also referred to as the "light of hope" (kibō no hikari) by the Starlights—their one chance for defeating Galaxia. She is able to transport herself and the Senshi around Galaxia's domain freely, and in the end, transforms herself into a Sword of Sealing (fuuin no ken). This is the weapon Galaxia had used to seal away Chaos, and ChibiChibi begs Sailor Moon to use it to defeat them. To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ... Just as the name suggests, this charming fellow was the final enemy of Sailor Moon, and he vowed to utterly destory the universe. ...


ChibiChibi's two identities should not be confused with one another. Sailor Cosmos does not explicitly appear in the anime, although a silhouette of ChibiChibi as an adult is often mistaken for her. In the manga, Galaxia's starseed is not humanoid, nor does it have any connection to ChibiChibi herself or to Sailor Cosmos.


When she appears in the stage musicals, ChibiChibi's backstory always follows the anime version. She is given her own song, "Mou ii no" (It's All Right), which she sings to announce that she has come to rejoin Galaxia.

Sailor Cosmos

Sailor Cosmos.

Sailor Cosmos (セーラー・コスモス Sērā Kosumosu?) reveals herself in the final Act of the manga. She comes from a future which has been all but decimated by the battle with Chaos; after ages of fighting, she despairs and flees to the past, as the infant ChibiChibi, to encourage Eternal Sailor Moon to defeat Chaos when she has the chance. Image File history File links Sailor_Cosmos. ... Image File history File links Sailor_Cosmos. ...


At first, she wants Sailor Moon to destroy the Galaxy Cauldron altogether, ensuring Chaos' destruction, but Sailor Moon protests, realizing that if the Cauldron is destroyed no more stars will be born and her friends, slain by Galaxia, will not return. She chooses to sacrifice herself to the Cauldron, which Cosmos finally realizes to have been the right decision. Reminded of the strength and courage she herself needs to have, she returns to the future with new hope.[8] The List of Sailor Moon locations tries to enumerate the most important locations found in the world of Sailor Moon, an anime/manga metaseries set mostly in a fictionalized version of Tokyo, Japan. ...


The manga implies that Sailor Cosmos is the ultimate form of Sailor Moon; this fact is confirmed in a magazine interview with Naoko Takeuchi.[9] There are multiple theories in the Sailor Moon fandom as to what this means.[10][citation needed]


Sailor Cosmos never makes an appearance in the anime series, although the silhouette of ChibiChibi's adult form (the "Light of Hope") bears a strong resemblance to her. Naoko Takeuchi commented that she wished Sailor Cosmos had been in the anime.[11]


Special powers

During the series, ChibiChibi displays the following powers. Sailor Cosmos' powers are not directly shown.

  • ChibiChibi Crystal Power! Make-Up! — Used in Act 46 of the manga to transform into Sailor ChibiChibi. In the anime, her transformation is never shown, although her Senshi form is.
  • Granting power — Sailor ChibiChibi Moon improves Eternal Sailor Moon's attacks, changing her Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss attack into Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss. In the anime, she also gives a sense of peace to the dying Princess Kakyuu, encourages the Sailor Starlights to keep fighting, and powers up Sailor Moon before her confrontation with Galaxia.
  • Shapeshifting — In both the anime and manga, ChibiChibi changes shape. Her other forms include that of Sailor Cosmos, the starseed of Galaxia (represented by a butterfly), an adult shape, and the Sword of Sealing.
