The Sailor Moon ponies[1][2] are ten background Pegasus and unicorn ponies designed to resemble the female protagonists of the anime/manga series Sailor Moon, including Celena, Aqua Mist, Burning Heart, Juno, Love Melody, Natural Satellite, Charon, Umbriel, Larissa, and Saturnalia. They are gradually introduced in the IDW comics and in the series. They are all unnamed in the series, their names being placeholder names, but Celena is named "Magical Pony" in some media.

Celena resembles main Sailor Moon character Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon,[3][4][5][6] Aqua Mist resembles Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, Burning Heart resembles Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Juno resembles Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter,[4][5] Love Melody resembles Minako Aino/Sailor Venus,[7] Natural Satellite resembles Chibiusa Tsukino/Sailor Chibi Moon,[2] Charon resembles Sailor Pluto,[2] Umbriel resembles Haruka Tenou/Sailor Uranus,[2] Larissa resembles Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune,[2] and Saturnalia resembles Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn.
