|~ Sailor Saturn's introduction|
Sailor Saturn is one of the four Outer Senshi of the Solar System, and was the tenth Sailor Senshi to be introduced in the manga. Her civilian identity is Hotaru Tomoe. Her attacks are based around silence and destruction, death, and rebirth; she has the ability to annihilate a planet and even an entire "nebula", as well as resetting the evolution of the same to zero and powers granted by her Silence Glaive. This is the original depiction of the character created by Naoko Takeuchi.

- Saturn Planet Power, Make Up: A phrase used by Hotaru Tomoe to transform into her standard and basic Sailor form as her alter ego, Sailor Saturn. The transformation was very brief, and her outfit change was never shown. First, Saturn's planetary symbol spun horizontally several times. Then Hotaru thrust her hand into the air and silver stars flashed over her fingernails, turning them white (very similar to Moon Prism Power, Make Up). In an instant Sailor Saturn was fully transformed, opening her eyes and sweeping down into her finishing pose, holding her Silence Glaive with the Saturn symbol behind her.
- Saturn Crystal Power, Make Up: The transformation phrase used by Sailor Saturn in the manga. It first appeared after her reawakening in Act 45 of the Dream arc of the manga. It is also the only known transformation phrase Sailor Saturn uses in the manga. However, it is not used in the anime.
- Dexterity: Fairly skilled (Sailor Saturn was shown to be skilled in performing her attacks confidently and did not fail in them).
- Astral Hotaru: Hotaru can exist and maintain consciousness on the astral plane while just a soul. While just a soul, she can sense and interact with the physical plane, damage beings that can normally absorb energy, and affect other souls. She can also regenerate a physical body from being just a soul.
- Saturn Spirit: The Saturn Spirit is the spirit of all Sailor Saturn which exists and acts independently of Hotaru. She can awaken her new incarnations into being Sailor Saturn and age them up artificially. However if the current Saturn incarnation dies without being awoken, the Saturn Spirit will disappear.
- Henshin: Hotaru can use the Power of her Sailor Crystal to Transform into Sailor Saturn and than her stronger forms. The Henshin Power can also be used to teleport through dimensions or reverse enemy-magic.
- Silence Glaive: An attack performed in the video game, Sailor Moon S Kurukkurin.
- Press Crusher: Used in Sailor Moon SuperS - Various Emotion and Sailor Moon SuperS: Zenin Sanka!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen.
- Bringing Ruin to the World: By lowering the Silence Glaive to the ground, Sailor Saturn can end all life throughout an entire dimension. The attack carries the power of the void and was powerful to reduce Pharaoh 90 into nothingness itself. It was powerful enough to end the dimension with the Tau "Nebula" (Which is a Galaxy).
- Death Reborn Revolution: The attack that Sailor Saturn used against Pharoah 90 at the end of the Infinity Arc. It rendered the extra-dimensional entity completely powerless and brought him great pain, as well as destroying much of the planet simply as an externality of the move. The attack releases dark tendrils from Sailor Saturn which paralyzes her enemy and drains the energy of the being into her negative aura.
- Super Sailor Saturn: A more powerful form of Sailor Senshi that comes from the holy powers of the Holy Grail, the Super Sailor Power-Up increases the Sailor Senshi's Power by 10,000 times.
- Silence Glaive Surprise: The true nature of the technique is unknown, but it does at least create a mist that hides Saturn's presence. It also seems to create a space-time vortex in front of Sailor Saturn.
- Death Drive Break: Used in Sailor Moon SuperS: Zenin Sanka!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen.
- Silent Wall: Sailor Saturn creates a barrier that blocks enemy attacks. Its total integrity is unknown however it blocked attacks from the Amazoness Quartet who are powerful enough to harm Sailor Saturn with non-attack spells.
- Silence Buster: Used in Sailor Moon SuperS: Zenin Sanka!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen.
- Eternal Sailor Saturn: The Highest Conventional State of Sailor Senshi, in this state Sailor Saturn's powers are comparable with the strongest Sailor Crystals in the Universe. This state increases her stats and her attack power by a drastic degree.
- Galactica Glaive Surprise: A version of Silence Glaive Surprise used by Sailor Saturn while she was being controlled by Sailor Galaxia's bracelets.
- Galactica Cannon: An attack used by Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto in the manga series. While under the influence of Sailor Galaxia and her Galactica Bracelets in the Stars arc, Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto used their respective weapons, the Silence Glaive and the Garnet Orb respectively, and attacked Sailor Chibi Chibi.
- Galactica Planet Attack: The Inner Senshi (excluding Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon) and the Outer Senshi performed this attack while they were under the influence of Sailor Galaxia's bracelets. It is an alternate version of Sailor Planet Attack.
- Star Seed Rip/Removal: The Galactica Bracelets also allow for the ability to steal the star seeds, taking away the very essence of a being and leaving the body to evaporate into dust.
- Lambda Hotaru: At the end of the series, Hotaru absorbed the Lambda Power and could exist in "Perfectly Heavenly Form" within the Galaxy Cauldron which normally erases existence. Having Absorbed the Lambda Power, Hotaru can use the powers of any Sailor Senshi, except for Sailor Chaos.
