|Supreme Thunder in the anime|
Sailor Jupiter began Supreme Thunder by crossing her arms over her chest with her index and pinky fingers extended. Then the lightning rod hidden inside her tiara extended, crackling with electricity. Lightning rained down from the sky, collecting around the rod until she extended her arms and sent it toward the enemy.
Sometimes, before performing the attack she would call out "Waga shugo Mokusei yo! Arashi wo okose! Kumo wo yobe! Ikazuchi wo furaseyo!" (我が守護木星よ！嵐を起こせ！雲を呼べ！雷を降らせよ！; My guardian Jupiter! Brew a storm! Call the clouds! Bring down the lightning!).
In the manga, Sailor Jupiter first used Supreme Thunder against Zoisite, who had grabbed Sailor Moon. When she performed this attack, her tiara appeared to collect electricity from the atmosphere, allowing her to propel it in the form of lightning bolts toward her target.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
To perform the attack, Sailor Jupiter first spun around with one leg lifted high in the air as lightning flashed around her, then extended her arms and sent the attack towards the enemy. Unlike in the other versions, her tiara was not involved in the attack in any way.
The attack was performed as in the anime: Sailor Jupiter crossed her arms over her chest with her index and pinky fingers extended, spoke the name of the attack, then extended her arms while light and sound effects gave the impression of lightning striking the target. Sometimes, she would also call upon her planet in the same fashion as in the anime.
Supreme Thunder appeared in many Sailor Moon video games, including Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (Super Famicom), Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon (arcade), Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story (Super Famicom), Sailor Moon S (3DO), Sailor Moon SuperS - Various Emotion (Sega Saturn), and Sailor Moon SuperS: Shin Shuyaku Soudatsusen (Playstation).
- When Sailor Jupiter first used Supreme Thunder in episode 25 of the anime, Sailor Moon misheard it as "Chou Cream Sundae" (シュー・クリーム・サンデー). Naoko Takeuchi later drew a three-panel parody manga in the Original Picture Collection Volume I artbook with Sailor Jupiter performing the "Chou Cream Sundae" attack.
