"I'm out for a walk one day when I happen to witness a bank robbery. What would I do? I'd use the powers of the Inner Senshi! First, I'd use Sailor Mercury's hydrokinetic powers to blind the robbers with mist. Then I'd use Sailor Jupiter's electrical powers to shock them into dropping the money. After quickly grabbing it to return to the bank, I'd make them promise never to rob a bank again...otherwise the robbers would probably have at least second-degree burns before they could finish saying, "No." In the event that I must use a Sailor Mars attack but end up failing, I'd use Sailor Venus's powers to blind them with light...then I'd use a Moon Tiara Action to bring the robbers to justice."
— KCCreations

FACT: To this day, Earth is the only planet that was never given an official Sailor Senshi, being represented by Tuxedo Mask instead. Read more >>

"Jedi mind tricks and lightsabers would be very useful in various real life scenarios. Someone's being bullied? "This is not the person you're looking for." Armed gunman mugging you? Swat away all his ammo with the lightsaber and go "Don't resort to violence as a solution." or something."
