Moon Generation by ParlourTricks Moon Generation by ParlourTricks
What's this? Something kind of canon?

On the left is a young, not-quite-Queen-yet Serenity as Sailor Moon, and her daughter Usagi, the future Sailor Moon.

I've seen quite a few "generation charts" in my DA feed lately, which got me to wondering - how did Usagi, who has blonde hair and blue eyes, and Mamoru, who has black hair and blue eyes, produce an offspring with pink hair and red eyes?

My answer is that the "pink hair gene" comes from Queen Serenity, and the "red eye gene" must come from Usagi's father or Mamoru's parents.

The pose is from a Sailormoon:SuperS trading card.

That's Serena's Mon As A Sailor Scout Back In The Days Huh?

Manga displays Tsukino Ikuko a few times with pink hair + red eyes, so Chibiusa most likely got her coloring from her maternal grandmother and appearance from her father.

In the canon though Queen Serenity did not have pink hair but rather white hair.

naoko did do a lot of artbooks when she made usagis mom whit pink hair ^-^ So that could explain chibiusas hair .

Great design. Where's the background from? Did you paint it?
ParlourTricks Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! The background is actually a screencap from the Season 1 opening. I did edit it considerably, and probably should have put the info in the credits but I forgot.

You know...Anime Genetics don't seem to make much sense, don't you agree?
mishihime Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, that's probably a good idea.
ParlourTricks Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! It's cool reading all your theories. I know in the original design for Sailor Moon, she had pink hair, which also influenced my choice for Serenity's hair color.

Cute picture! ^^

Though I read in Naoko Takeuchi's original designs for Sailor Moon, she had pink hair (which you can find after some searching- it looks so odd compared to the one we all know). XD After a lot of editing, she made her blond, and when she designed Chibi-Usa, she used some of her old designs.

Wonderful picture :heart:
Hmm, I remember reading somewhere that Chibiusa has pink hair because she was born under a "special" moon or during a "special" time of the moon. However, I didn't read anything about her red eyes, but then again, it's anime XD
PureForestGuardian Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011
I had wondered the same thing...But then again, it's anime and all logic concerning appearance flies out the window where that's concerned....

This is a nice take, though!

There's a fan theory that Sailor Pluto is Endymion's mother, thus her red eyes passed onto her granddaughter, Chibiusa! :D

In the original sketches, Queen Serenity had lavender hair (light purple), so my theory is that younger, it was a darker purple. Since purple consists of red and blue, it's possible the red side won out and when mixed with the silver that Princess Serenity had in the manga, it would make pink!

My answer is that it's anime, anything can happen....xD

Either that or Naoko Takeuchi didn't have the right coloured pencils / paint.....xD
PeachFuzzeh Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
In some prototype sketches by Naoko, Usagi originally had pink hair and her blue eyes and I assume she really wanted to keep Chibi-Usa to keep her pink hair, but I have NO idea what's up with her red eyes. :)

I hope that helped you and I promise I'm not making it up, I try my best to never misguide anyone ;)

ACTUALLY I have heard a story before of how Chibiusa came to be =p
goddessredd Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Professional General Artist
What a cool idea! I like thinking that maybe in her youth Queen Serenity had pink hair, but at the same time, in the original manga, Usagi had silver hair as a princess and when she was transformed. :confused:

Very nice!

I'd vote pink hair from Moon Queen and red eyes from Earth Queen.
