The Witches 5 (ウィッチーズ5 Wicchīzu Faibu?) are fictional antagonists in the anime series Sailor Moon S. The group is a subset of the Death Busters lead by Professor Souichi Tomoe.

In the anime, the Witches 5 work as researchers in an underground lab.

Each tries to win the Professor's attention and approval, but each fails. Mistress 9 as seen in Sailor Moon S. Mistress 9 (or Mistress Nine) is a fictional character from the Sailor Moon S series. ...

In the manga, the Witches 5 make only brief appearances before being killed off. They are presented not as scientists or researchers, but are posed as students at Infinity Academy, the Death Busters' home base. They each carry a staff and have a specific rank. Their goal is to remove the souls, or "Hostes," of innocent victims so they could use their bodies, or Vessels, to plant Daimon eggs.




Eudial (ユージアル Yūjiaru?, Eugeal in the English dub) is the first and possibly the leader of the Witches 5. She first attacks the Sailor Senshi in episode 103. Eudialyte is her namesake. Seiyuu Maria Kawamura provides her voice for the original Japanese production. Canadian actress Loretta Jafelice does her voice for the English adaptation. Image File history File links Eudial16. ...

Kawamura Maria (川村 万梨阿, née Kawamura Shigeyo or 川村 繁代) is a veteran seiyuu who was born on November 21, 1961 in Tokyo and works for Arts Vision. ...

Eudial seems to be the oldest of the group, and is much resented by the others — particularly Mimete — because Professor Tomoe seems to favor her. She uses her computer to track down potential Talisman holders, and takes bio-engineered monsters (Daimon) with her to remove said Talismans from their owners. In the anime she is referred to as Chief by the other members.

Eudial is generally fairly even-tempered and level-headed, except as a driver. In many episodes she nearly runs people over, partly because the car emerges from its underground tunnels in illogical locations. She carries a deadly shoulder-mounted flamethrower, the Fire Buster (later upgraded to the Fire Buster II), and later in the series booby-traps the under-construction Marine Cathedral. She actually succeeds in getting two of the Talismans, but loses them to Sailor Pluto. Furious, she escapes in her car, only to find that Mimete has torn out its brakes and filled it with snails. (In the dubbed anime, they are acid snails and dissolve the brakes.) The car crashes over the highway into the sea below, killing her instantly.

She leads some students to "Mount M" for a retreat and tries to remove their Hostes during orientation. Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter appeared and fought her. Sailor Mars used her 'Mars Snake Fire' attack on Eudial but it turned her into a monster looking similar to a Gorgon with a black star on its forehead. She was then killed by Sailor Moon. Although never used in the manga, her strongest attack (according to the Materials Collection) is called "Fire Buster."



Mimete (ミメット Mimetto?) is the second of the group. She first attacks the Sailor Senshi in episode 112. She is named after the mineral mimetite. Voice work for the character is provided by seiyuu Mika Kanai in Japanese. Catherine Disher plays the character in English[1]. Unlike the other Witches except Cyprine, Mimete's name was not changed in the English dub. It was respelled as "Mimet" in title cards, but pronounced in the same way.

In the anime, after Eudial's death Mimete is assigned to collect pure hearts (which will be used to power up Mistress 9). Mimete is a bit of a ditz and usually goes after attractive celebrities, flirting with them rather than doing her job. Out of all the Witches 5, she is the least organized and the most easily distracted. Mimete's Daimons were known for literally sucking the Pure Heart Crystals of their victims out through their mouths. These monsters required the power of the Holy Grail (Purity Chalice in the English dub) to be defeated. Her attack is called "Charm Buster." Mistress 9 as seen in Sailor Moon S. Mistress 9 (or Mistress Nine) is a fictional character from the Sailor Moon S series. ...

After several failed attempts at collecting hearts, she tries to use one of Eudial's abandoned inventions to increase her size and power. Just as she is about to attack using her newly buffed powers, Tellu pulls the plug on the machine, leaving Mimete forever trapped inside it.

In the manga, she goes by the alias Mimi Hanyu and leads the Acting Class in the Talent Division of Infinity Academy. She is the lowest ranked, at Level 40, and her death attack is "Charm Buster," as in the anime. She poses as a pop idol, holding a concert for Infinity Academy students with the intention of stealing their Hostes. Sailor Venus, who disguises herself as an Infinity Academy student, appears to stop her. When the other Senshi arrive, Mimete calls on Kaolinite's help to awaken the Daimon eggs implanted in the students, but to no avail. She is killed by Sailor Uranus.

Tellu (テルル Teruru?, Telulu in the English dub) is the third member of the Witches 5, named for the mineral tellurite. Tellu is voiced by Chieko Honda in Japanese. Image File history File links Tellu. ... Image File history File links Tellu. ... Tellurite is a mineral, TeO2. ... Chieko Honda ) is a Japanese seiyÅ« who was born on March 28, 1963 in Tokyo and raised in Nagano. ...

In the anime, after Tellu gets Mimete out of the way, she too is assigned the task of gathering pure hearts. She approaches this by opening a flower shop and giving away beautiful plants,Telluns, which will later wrestle the pure hearts out of their owners. Tellu may then collect these in a magical container.

Sailor Moon, Chibi Moon, Pluto, and Tuxedo Mask eventually confront her, and she unleashes her most destructive plant, Hyper-Tellun. In midst of the brawl, Tuxedo Mask hurls one of his trademark roses at her, which causes the container to burst open, surrounding Tellu with pure heart crystals. Sensing this, her own botanical creation turns against her. Tellu electrocutes it in an attempt to break free, but it self-destructs, and she is vaporized along with it.

In the manga, Tellu appears as the fourth witch instead of the third. She goes by the alias Lulu Teruno and is in charge of the Garden in the Physical Division of Infinity Academy, as well as the botanical gardens. She is ranked at Level 404, and her death attack is "Mandragora Buster." Just as in the anime, she uses a number of artificial plants to steal Hostes, but is foiled by the Sailor Senshi. When she deflects Sailor Moon's attack, Sailor Chibi Moon uses her 'Pink Sugar Heart Attack' which transforms Tellu into a monster, just like Eudial. Tellu is then killed by the newly re-awakened Sailor Pluto.



Viluy (ビリユイ Biriyui?, Byruit in the dub) is the 4th member of the Witches 5, named for the mineral viluite. She is voiced by Yoshino Takamori in Japanese. Image File history File links Viluy15. ... Image File history File links Viluy15. ... Viluite is a variety of grossular garnet that is usually olive green though sometimes brownish or reddish. ... Yoshino Takamori is a seiyuu born on November 23, 1963 in Chiba, Japan. ...

In the anime, Viluy was handed the task of gathering pure hearts after Tellu's demise. To achieve this goal, she programmed all the computers at the Infinity Academy to extract the pure heart crystal of their users during a national practice exam. Additionally, she possessed the "Mosaic Buster" attack, which released a flurry of nano-robots from her wristband. In education, certification, counselling, and many other fields, a test or exam (short for examination) is a tool or technique intended to measure students expression of knowledge, skills and/or abilities. ...

She had great success at first, and nearly defeated Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Mercury (against whom she had a personal grudge), when her wristband suddenly malfunctioned as a result of Sailor Moon attacking it. The nanomachines dissolved their own master, leaving behind only her bracelet.

In the manga, Viluy was the third witch to appear, before Tellu. She was ranked at Level 202 and led the Science Division of Infinity Academy under the alias of Yui Bidoh. Her story in the manga is essentially the same as in the anime, except that she meets her doom by being cut in half by Sailor Uranus's Space Sword.

Cyprine and Ptilol

Cyprine and Ptilol

Cyprine (シプリン Shipurin?, name unchanged in the dub) and Ptilol (プチロル Puchiroru?, Petirol in the dub) are, together, considered the fifth of the Witches 5. It has been stated by Naoko Takeuchi in the Materials Collection that Ptilol is just an extension of Cyprine's power, yet they seem to act as one. The two are named for the minerals cyprine and ptilolite. They are voiced by Yuriko Fuchizaki (Cyprine) and Rumi Kasahara (Ptilol) in Japanese. Image File history File links CyPt4. ... Image File history File links CyPt4. ... Naoko Takeuchi (武内直子 Takeuchi Naoko), born March 15, 1967, is a manga artist who lives in Tokyo, Japan. ...

Rumi Kasahara (笠原 留美 Kasahara Rumi) is a seiyu born at Niigata, Japan on March 3, 1970. ...

In the anime, Cyprine was portrayed as the last of the Witches 5. It was only when confronted that she revealed her "other self", Ptilol. The two prove nearly invincible to the Sailor Senshi, as one always blocks incoming attacks with her powers while the other blasts from behind. Gradually, the Senshi are able to trick the two into blasting each other, killing both at the same time.

In the manga, Cyprine is the highest ranking witch at level 999, and her death attack is "Ribbon Buster." She was called upon by Kaolinite specifically to take care of the Sailor Senshi. She comes from the Sorcery Class of the Professional Division of Infinity Academy. After an unsuccessful attack on Haruka, Cyprine uses her powers to manipulate the dark feelings in the hearts of the Senshi so they might fight each other. Sailor Moon manages to kill them only by transforming into Super Sailor Moon and using her Rainbow Moon Heartache attack.
