Anime

Fire Soul Bird in the anime

Sailor Mars first used this attack in episode 54 out of rage, after the Cardian Seiren destroyed her precious music sheets. The attack was powerful enough to sustain Seiren’s blast of water unlike the previous Fire Soul attack. The flame bird then struk the Cardian in the stomach, thus realizing the energy she had collected.

To perform this attack Sailor Mars would first chant while holding an ofuda in front of her, threw the ofuda, then yelled "Fire Soul Bird!" to release a fire ball from her index finger. The fire would then engulf the ofuda and take the shape of a phoenix.

Fire Soul Bird was only used again once, during episode 59 against Ail and An. However, this time the attack was not powerful enough to breach the two aliens' energy shield. In this episode also, the attack was perform without any chanting.

Video Games

Fire Soul Bird appeared in a few video games, including Sailor Moon R and Sailor Moon: Another Story.
