Momoko Momohara was Chibiusa's best friend outside of the Sailor Senshi in the anime and manga. They both hung out with fellow classmate Kyuusuke Sarashina and, in the manga, with an additional classmate, Sorano. In the manga her home was below a restaurant, and she loved to garden. In both the anime and manga, Momoko became the victim of the vampire Lilica Hubert, and was rescued by the Sailor Senshi. In the R season, she was possesed by Achiral and Chiral who made her hate Chibiusa, but she was healed by one of Chibiusa's "moonbeams." She was also targeted for her Dream Mirror in the SuperS season.
