Fire Soul Bird was an upgrade to Fire Soul which caused the flames in the attack to take the shape of a bird. The attack appeared only in the anime and video games.


Sailor Mars first used this attack in episode 54 after the Cardian Seiren destroyed her precious music sheets. She had first tried to attack with Fire Soul, but Seiren's water attack extinguished the flames before they could destroy her. The upgraded Fire Soul Bird broke through the water and struck the Cardian in the stomach, thus releasing the energy she had collected.

To perform this attack, Sailor Mars first chanted while holding an ofuda in front of her, then threw the ofuda and yelled "Fire Soul Bird!" to release a fire ball from her index fingers. The fire then engulfed the ofuda and took the shape of a phoenix-like bird.

Fire Soul Bird appeared once more during episode 59, when it was used against Ail and An. That time the attack was performed without any chanting, and it was not powerful enough to breach the two aliens' energy shield.

Video Games[edit]

Fire Soul Bird appeared in several video games, including Sailor Moon R, Sailor Moon: Another Story, and Sailor Moon S: Jougai Rantou!? Shuyaku Soudatsusen.
