Spurred on by Wiseman, Rubeus sends Calaveras and Petz on a suicide mission to kill the Sailor Senshi and Chibiusa.

Summary

Koan and Berthier are at the Hikawa Shrine, raking leaves and cooking sweet potatoes with the Inner Senshi and Chibiusa. Berthier comments that it is nice to have friends, since the two of them didn’t have any before. Chibiusa begins to eat a potato, and Usagi asks if she could have half. When Chibiusa eats the whole potato, Usagi gets angry and begins to chase her.

Petz and Calaveras watch their newly healed sisters from the UFO. Rubeus soon arrives, and gives Petz a wand that will increase her power. Rubeus then gives the remaining sisters an ultimatum: kill the Sailor Senshi, the "rabbit", and their two traitor sisters, or they will not be allowed to return.

Back at the Hikawa Shrine, Usagi begins to pig out on sweet potatoes. Makoto comments that Usagi will get fat from eating so much, and Rei suggests that Mamoru rejected Usagi because she was like that. A bright light shines in the sky, and some light beams shoot at Chibiusa. Koan pushes Chibiusa out of the way, but gets captured in the process, along with Berthier.

Usagi moves Chibiusa to the closet and tells her to stay there. Chibiusa instead runs to a window after Usagi leaves, and there sees Usagi and her friends transform into the Sailor Senshi, unknowingly revealing their secret identities to Chibiusa. Sailor Mercury uses her computer to locate the evil energy and the Senshi run off. Chibiusa chases after them.

Koan and Berthier are being held near a bridge that is under construction, trapped in a ball of energy by Petz and Calaveras. Calaveras asks Petz if she could use the Stick, but Petz refuses, as she is enjoying her newfound power. Koan and Berthier try to reason with Petz, asking her and Calaveras to quit fighting the Sailor Senshi, but Petz disagrees with them.

The Sailor Senshi arrive and Petz immediately begins using her power. Petz deflects Sailor Jupiter’s Sparkling Wide Pressure attack and blasts her back. Mercury uses her computer to find out that Petz is powered up from the Stick. Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars use their attacks, but Petz is able to defend herself from them, and she blasts the Senshi back with her Dark Thunder attack amplified by the power of the Black Moon Stick. Koan and Berthier plead with Petz not to hurt the Sailor Senshi, but Petz refuses to listen. Petz then blasts Koan and Berthier along with Calaveras. The energy ball dissolves and Berthier and Koan fall, but Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Mars catch them. Sailor Moon goes up to Calaveras and asks if she is all right. Calaveras is shocked to find out that Sailor Moon cares about her.

Petz begins to prepare for another attack. Sailor Mercury uses her Sabão Spray to create a fog, then Sailor Venus uses her Venus Love-Me Chain attack to knock the rod out of Petz’s hand. Sailor Jupiter then blasts Petz. The other three Spectre Sisters gather around Petz, then Rubeus appears. Rubeus states that he hadn't expected the Black Moon sisters to beat the Sailor Senshi, but he will use the power of the Stick so that everyone will die together.

The Stick creates a hole to another dimension which begins to draw everything into it. Petz tries to use her remaining Dark Power, but it doesn't work and she almost gets sucked into the hole. The other three sisters then rescue Petz. After a brief appearance by Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Moon suggests that the Senshi go into the hole to destroy the Stick. The Sailor Senshi jump into the hole, find the Stick, and then use Sailor Planet Power to destroy it.

After the dimension hole closes, Sailor Moon uses the Silver Crystal to turn Petz and Calaveras into humans. Chibiusa shows up and watches the transformation, discovering the Silver Crystal in the process. Back in the UFO, Rubeus is furious over the defeat by the Sailor Senshi and punches one of his mirrors.

The next day, the four sisters open up a cosmetics shop together. Petz begins to get upset at Berthier, who is trying on the makeup. Usagi and Rei then begin to squabble with each other, much to the dismay of the other three Senshi.
