Kurumiwario was a Lemures used by Fisheye when targeting Yamagishi for his Dream Mirror. He had the appearance of a nutcracker doll, and his attacks were based on movements from classical ballet, such as the grand fouetté en tournant and grand battement. In his version of the grand fouetté he lifted one leg high in the air and then spun his body around 32 times while his head stayed still. When Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon were distracted by applauding the move, he trapped Sailor Moon in a tutu and forced her to spin until the tutu finally snapped and she escaped. He then performed his version of the grand battement, which consisted of putting walnuts in the nutcracker built into his stomach and firing the pieces at the two Sailor Senshi like explosive projectiles.

As he attacked he attempted to give Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon "ballet lessons," and chiding them for talking to each other while he was trying to teach and lecturing Sailor Moon on her weight. After he was distracted by a rose thrown by Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Moon destroyed him with Moon Gorgeous Meditation.


  • His name comes from the Japanese title (くるみ割り人形) for the ballet The Nutcracker, which refers to the spring-activated doll characters in that ballet.
