Sparkling Wide Pressure was an attack used by Sailor Jupiter in most versions of the Sailor Moon series.

Sailor Jupiter first used this attack against Petz in episode 65 of the anime. To perform the attack, she formed a disc of energy with the electricity gathered by her tiara and threw it towards the enemy.

Sailor Jupiter used this attack for the first time against Berthier in Act 16 of the manga. It was used only one more time, in the subsequent chapter, where it was used against Petz. As in the anime, Sailor Jupiter would bring her hands together and hurl the attack at the enemy, but it appeared more like bolts of lighting than a disc. In Act 15 of the reprint manga, there were also flowers visible swirling amidst the lightning bolts.

When she used this attack in Sailor Moon Crystal, Sailor Jupiter hurled bolts of lightning at her targets in a similar manner as in the manga.

Sparkling Wide Pressure appeared for the first time in the very first musical, Sailor Moon - Gaiden Dark Kingdom Fukkatsu Hen, where it was used against Nephrite.

This attack was also used in the video games Sailor Moon R for the Super Famicom, Sailor Moon S for the 3DO, and Sailor Moon: Another Story. In Another Story, it appeared as a mass of electricity which exploded on contact.
