- The word "halation" refers to light spreading to surround an object, as if making a halo about it. The word was first used by early photographers to refer to light blurring and bleeding into shadows in an image.
- In the musical Shin / Henshin - Super Senshi e no Michi - Last Dracul Jokyoku, Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon performed this attack in conjunction with the talismans of the Outer Senshi in order to purify the Inner Senshi after they had become vampires.
- This attack was originally renamed "Moon Scepter Elimination" in the English dub, but in dub episode 67 it changed to "Moon Scepter Activation." The dub also removed most of the sound effects during the attack animation sequence.
- The ADV box set of Sailor Moon R mistakenly subtitled this attack as "Moon Princess Elimination," one of the dub names for this attack.
