- "Mars Flame Sniper!"
- —Attack Phrase
Mars Flame Sniper/Shooter is an offensive attack used by Sailor Mars. Mars Flame Sniper is Sailor Mars's fifth attack.
Using Crystal Power, Sailor Mars extends her hand and the symbol of Mars appears, followed by a burst of fire. The fire transforms into a bow and arrow and functions not unlike physical weapons themselves. Her energy focused, Mars can fire a flaming arrow that is strong enough to destroy certain magical objects or weaken enemies.
Sailor Moon SuperS
She first used the attack in Sailor Moon SuperS, episode 25, "Dreams of Her Own". The Remless, Manemane, was able to mimic standard attacks like the Mars Celestial Fire Surround, but Mars Flame Shooter was a type of attack that she could not mimic, and it weakened her, allowing Sailor Moon to finish her off.
Mars’s bow is a reference to Mars, the god of War. He was also occasionally associated with fire and flame. His son with Aphrodite, Cupid, also carried a shortbow and arrow. In addition, mikos (Shinto priestesses, which Raye is) were well-known for their archery and occasionally exorcised demons with arrows.
