Is VR Visor an official dub term? Did it ever appear in the show or on any merchendise or is it just a popular fan term? I put it in as I know that's what their commonly called but I've no idea were this originates from. GracieLizzie 14:00, 1 August 2006 (MST)

...it's called the "Mercury Goggle"? Wow. Okay. I'm hardly a dub expert but I don't remember it being given a name. Kerochan no Miko 14:43, 1 August 2006 (MST)
It was never named onscreen: the name comes from the guides. I usually write this as "Mercury Goggles", which makes more sense in English, but this name is more technically accurate, I guess. dooky 14:46, 1 August 2006 (MST)
I was tempted to put Goggles too, but as it's マーキュリーゴーグル and not マーキュリーゴーグルス or whatever I thought it best to stick with Goggle even though it does look clumsy. Heh, actually I nearly named the article "Mercury Google" but luckily caught the typo in time :P GracieLizzie 14:55, 1 August 2006 (MST)
In the DIC dub ep#6 "Time Bomb" Sailor Mercury says "I'll use my VR Visor" when trying to find the Negamonster Ramwoir. She also calls the Supercomputer her "Mini-Data Computer" and "Data Computer". Is it okay if I also add the "Mini" part to the term on the Supercomputer page? -CorzaMoon (talk) 05:20, 25 November 2019 (EST)

The Mercury Goggles! They do nothing!--WikiSysop 15:35, 1 August 2006 (MST)

They helped finish off Jumo by finding her weakspot, but besides that yet they do seem a little redundant other than looking kinda cool. After all can't she all the stuff she can with with them with her Super Computer anyway? GracieLizzie 16:25, 1 August 2006 (MST)
It's a joke. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLG,GGLG:2005-32,GGLG:en&q=the+goggles%2c+they+do+nothing --WikiSysop 17:12, 1 August 2006 (MST)
Ah, well it still kinda holds true. GracieLizzie 01:57, 2 August 2006 (MST)

Hmmm... Incidentally, I found this statement on the Wikipedia article for Goggles:

In anime, goggles (or sunglasses) worn or kept on the forehead/headgear by a character are a sign of decisiveness, bravery, or leadership position.

Too bad Sailor Moon never wore them in the anime like she did in the manga. ¬_¬ -- DENelson83 20:39, 1 August 2006 (MST)

Haha, I think maybe Naoko just got tired of having to draw the goggles on Sailor Moon each time and decided to drop them. WaterKnight 16:19, 17 November 2007 (MST)
The character design concepts of Sailor Moon were originally modelled on those of Sailor V, hence the goggle in some earlier illustrations. --210 18:02, 17 November 2007 (MST)

Trivia data error[edit]

I think we could remove this: "Although Sailor Mercury was never shown using the Mercury Goggle in the manga, it did appear in illustrations in the author's notes.", because she used it, e.g. while use the "hiperspace area formation" technique. E.Knight 11:50. 13 September 2009 (MST)

Ah, I forgot about this! I noticed it too, but I forgot to post a comment on the talk page Xd. Yes, she wore it a lot throughout the Sailor Moon arc, and she also used it in the Black Moon arc, and once in the Dream arc (I think it was just before Mars and Venus blasted away the Circus's front door when they were chasing after Zirconia). I propose to remove the manga part in the Trivia note and add that it was used in the manga too in the Introduction part --Silver 12:02, 13 September 2009 (MST)
I changed it a bit and included a few things, E. Knight --Silver 14:03, 13 September 2009 (MST)


GOOGLE?! OK, Silver, stop editing while in sleep deprivation!! My hands start typing by themselves without any control. Thank you for noticing the typo, 210 --Silver 00:58, 14 September 2009 (MST)
