Long ago, Princess Snow Kaguya tried to cover the Earth in ice, but failed when the Ginzuishou melted the ice and saved the planet. In "The Lover of Princess Kaguya" and Sailor Moon S: The Movie, she has made her way to Earth to try again. A piece of her comet has been lost and she cannot proceed without it. She sends her minions, the Snow Dancers, to search for the missing shard. A young astronomer named Kakeru Oozora finds the shard and keeps it in his observatory. It attaches itself to his life force, and begins slowly stealing his energy, causing him to become very ill. Princess Snow Kaguya takes the shard, but because it is linked to his life force, he is brought even closer to death when it is taken. She throws the shard into the ocean and creates an enormous ice crystal that will continue to draw away Kakeru's energy until he dies. She and her Snow Dancers then begin to freeze the Earth. The Senshi attempt to stop her, but none of their attacks seem to work. All of the senshi combine their powers to activate the Ginzuishou, which destroys Princess Snow Kaguya, her Snow Dancers, the ice crystal in the ocean, and her comet.
