The {{nihongo|'''Amazon Trio'''|アマゾントリオ|Amazon Torio}} is a set of fictional antagonists in the anime series ''[[Sailor Moon]] SuperS'' and the corresponding [[manga]] arc, ''Dream''. The trio are a subset of the villains called the [[Dead Moon Circus]], and follow the threatening commands of [[Dead Moon Circus#Zirconia|Zirconia]].
 
 
The trio has three members: '''Tiger's Eye''', '''Hawk's Eye''' and '''Fisheye'''. Their names, like those of most ''Sailor Moon'' villains, are derived from the names of [[Tiger's eye|gemstones]].
 
 
In the manga they are created from animals from the circus by the Amazoness Quartet to destroy the Sailor Senshi.<ref name="vol12">{{cite book |last= Takeuchi |first= Naoko | title= Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Volume 12 |publisher= Kodansha |date= September 6, 1995 |id= ISBN 4-06-178814-0 }}</ref> They each respectively target a relevant Sailor Senshi to kill. The only exception to this is Sailor Venus, who is targeted by [[Dead Moon Circus#Xenotime and Zeolite|Xenotime and Zeolite]].<ref name="vol13">{{cite book |last= Takeuchi |first= Naoko | title= Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Volume 13 |publisher= Kodansha |date= |id= ISBN 4-06-178820-5 }}</ref> They do not summon lemures themselves, but are treated as lemures.
 
 
In the anime, members of the trio summon ''[[lemures]]''&mdash;spirits of the dead&mdash;from the shadows to assist them in various battles with the [[Sailor Senshi]], mostly using them to fight their battles entirely for them.
 
 
Also in the anime, the Amazon Trio's job is to look into the dream mirrors of mortals, searching for the legendary and powerful [[List of minor Sailor Moon characters#Pegasus|Pegasus]]. Pegasus possesses the Golden Crystal which can free their leader, Queen Nehellenia, from her entrapment within a mirror and allow her to take over Earth. The Trio choose their victims by seducing various women and men, whether they be young or old, and attacking them while they are vulnerable.
 
 
Each Trio member removes his targets' dream mirrors in the same three step process. First he says "One" (in English), and a large red board with the Circus' logo raises from the ground behind his target. Second, he causes shackles to lock them to the board by saying "Two." Finally, by saying "Three," he forces the victim's dream mirror to appear from their chest. In one instance two members did it at the same time causeing two boards to appear at the same time.<!--If you know what two, the episode and other details please add them--> In one episode the boards appear every time they say one, even when they didn't want them to.
 
 
==Profiles==
 
===Tiger's Eye===
 
{{nihongo|'''Tiger's Eye'''|タイガーズ・アイ|Taigāzu・Ai}} takes the form of a tall, long haired blond man. He wears tight tiger-striped pants and a white top, and attacks with a whip.
 
 
In the anime, his targets of seduction are particularly younger women, as he uses his charming abilities to lure them into his traps until the right time to look into their dream mirrors in search of Pegasus. He can speak more English than just the "one, two, three" required to set up his trap. It is not clear how much he knows, but he asks one of his targets what the time is in English.
 
 
In the manga, Tiger's Eye attempted to pollute [[Sailor Mars]] with negative thoughts in order to take her energy while she was investigating a mysterious hall of mirrors. He is killed by her just after she powers up into her 'Super' form. He is destroyed in the blast from her new attack, ''Mars Flame Sniper''.<ref>Act 36.</ref>
 
 
Tiger's Eye is voiced by [[Ryotaro Okiayu]] in the original Japanese anime and by [[Jason Barr (actor)|Jason Barr]] in the English dub.
 
 
===Hawk's Eye===
 
{{nihongo|'''Hawk's Eye'''|ホークス・アイ|Hōkusu・Ai}} takes the form of a tall young man with bright, wild pink hair. He wears a [[bra]]-like [[toga]] and tights in his battle attire.
 
 
In the anime, he often gets into fights with Tiger's Eye, though their relationship is rather love-hate, and their arguments are usually playful. His attacks are fire-based, and uses a torch as his primary weapon. His targets reflect his romantic preferences, in this case older women (to contrast with Tiger's Eye's preference for younger girls).
 
 
He first appears in episode 128 of the anime but his first offensive move is made in episode 130, his victim being [[Sailor Moon (character)|Usagi Tsukino]]'s mother, "Ikuko-mama". His designs on her are thwarted by Sailor Moon and [[Chibiusa|Sailor Chibi Moon]]. He continues throughout the series to mainly target older women, although he and Tiger's Eye compete over [[Sailor Venus|Minako Aino]].<ref>Episode 141</ref>
 
 
Hawk's Eye is killed by the lemures 'Mr. Magic Pierrot', who is sent by [[Amazoness Quartet#PallaPalla|PallaPalla]] to eliminate the trio. However, Pegasus revives him, and he is sent to Elysion with the others.
 
 
In the manga, Hawk's Eye deceives [[Sailor Jupiter]] pretending to be a female owner of a herb store. He is killed later, just after she powers up into her 'Super' form. He is destroyed in the blast from her new attack, ''Jupiter Oak Evolution''.<ref>Act 37.</ref>
 
 
Creator [[Naoko Takeuchi]] characterized Hawk's Eye as a sort of grown-up [[Shitennou (Sailor Moon)#Zoisite|Zoisite]], with the dream of someday being a "bar madam" in either [[Las Vegas Strip|Las Vegas]] or [[Ginza]].<ref>{{cite book |last= Takeuchi |first= Naoko | title= Materials Collection |publisher= [[Kodansha]] |date= September 1999 |id= ISBN 4-06-324521-7}}</ref>
 
 
He is voiced by Toshio Furukawa in the original Japanese version and by Benji Plener in the English dub. He is played by Hikari Ono in the stage musicals.
 
 
===Fisheye===
 
{{nihongo|'''Fisheye'''|フィッシュ・アイ|Fisshu・Ai}} takes the form of a slender, [[Effeminacy|effeminate]] male with long, pale blue and green hair.
 
   
 
In the anime, like Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye, he targets his ideal romantic interests, which are young males. His magical attacks are water-based, but his primary choice of attack is knife-throwing (which, to his frustration, he is not very good at).

Fisheye has a very small part in the manga, in which he is sold to [[Sailor Mercury|Ami Mizuno]] in fish form. He gives her nightmares about her father abandoning her, luring her into a trap. She powers up and defeats Fisheye with ''Mercury Aqua Rhapsody'', and he is killed soon after by Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon.<ref>Act 35.</ref> In the ''Materials Collection'', creator Naoko Takeuchi describes him as the Circus's "ball-balancing girl (??)<!--This is IN NAOKO'S TEXT-->", who one day dreams of becoming the "best ball-balancing girl (!)<!--This is IN NAOKO'S TEXT--> in the world"; emphasis is hers.

Fish Eye.png

Fish Eye (フィッシュ・アイ Fisshu・Ai?) takes the form of a slender, effeminate male with long, pale blue and green hair.

In the anime, like Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye, he targets his ideal romantic interests, which are young males. His magical attacks are water-based, but his primary choice of attack is knife-throwing (which, to his frustration, he is not very good at).

Fish Eye has a very small part in the manga, in which he is sold to Sailor Mercury in fish form. He gives her nightmares about her father abandoning her, luring her into a trap. She powers up and defeats Fish Eye with Mercury Aqua Rhapsody, and he is killed soon after by Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon.[1] In the Materials Collection, creator Naoko Takeuchi describes him as the Circus's "ball-balancing girl (??)", who one day dreams of becoming the "best ball-balancing girl (!) in the world"; emphasis is hers. She also compares his temperament to that of the exciteable Mimete.

Fish Eye is also effeminate in the anime, as well as openly attracted to men, and while in disguise almost always dresses as a woman. Crossdressing is the basis of many of his disguises, as he is usually able to pass himself off as a woman to attract his targets, who are generally heterosexual males (he portrayed his gender honestly to the one gay target he had).[2] Undisguised, he speaks Japanese with exclusively masculine pronouns, such as boku when referring to himself. All of the Trio's forms has some ambiguity,[3] and every other costume Fisheye wears is part of a human disguise.

Unlike his cohorts, who are rather superficial about their victims, Fisheye seems to nurse a paradoxical genuine affection for many of his victims (or at least a childish crush) until they give him the inevitable brush-off. This included the kindly Mamoru Chiba, who he seemed to develop feelings for and even kissed.[4] The lemures he summons are always male (while Hawk's Eye and Tiger's Eye summon females) and normally have a spade (♠) somewhere on their body or clothing.

Fish Eye is also the first of the three to wonder if what they are doing is right, and his wavering loyalty lands him in hot water when he is nearly killed by Zirconia. Midway through the series, he and the others are sublimated into Pegasus' world and given the promise of rebirth as real humans.

English adaptation

Fish Eye was changed to a woman in the English dub of the anime, which is not unprecedented within this adapted series: Zoisite and Zirconia also had their genders changed.[5] However, the female Fisheye's voice seemed to waver between effeminacy and boyishness, and the TV version of the dub slightly edited a fairly noticeable scene in which Fish Eye is seen without a shirt— the chest was placed off-camera.[6] In the uncut DVD, the many references to Fish Eye as female are retained, but the scenes showing "her" as a shirtless man are still shown. Fish Eye merely claims that "she's" not like other women.

Fish Eye is voiced by Akira Ishida in the original Japanese version and by Deborah Drakeford in the English dub.

Anime

Rather than being killed by the Sailor Soldiers like in the manga, the Amazon Trio share a different fate in the anime.

When Zirconia finally reveals to them their true natures (those of animals), Fish Eye fears particularly of their fate and questions why they do not possess dream mirrors like humans. Fish Eye's change in perspective was attributed to the kindness of Usagi after Fish Eye was rejected by Mamoru and also with the discovery that Chibiusa was the holder of the Golden Dream Mirror, which housed the dream Pegasus (Helios) hid himself in.

Fish Eye's insolence nearly costs the life of the Amazon Trio, however, because Zirconia reads Fisheye's memory and mistakenly believes Usagi is the holder of the Golden Dream Mirror, Zirconia sends Hawk's Eye to steal the mirror. Fish Eye and Tiger's Eye follow to stop Hawk's Eye while Zirconia plans to have the trio eliminated as soon as Usagi's mirror is revealed.

The Lemures sent by Zirconia shatters Usagi's dream mirror before Hawk's Eye has a chance to restore it to Usagi's body. Hawk's Eye ends up dying to protect Fish Eye from an attack and gives him the power Zirconia granted him to stay human like so that they may finish off the Lemures. Fish Eye and Tiger's Eye use the power to resurrect Usagi, realizing she is Sailor Moon, and also summon Chibiusa, believing that the pair are the only ones who can defeat the Lemures and avenge Hawk's Eye.

Usagi and Chibiusa, as Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon, defeat the summoned Lemures, but is it too late for either of them to do anything for the Amazon Trio, who have reverted to their animal forms. Soon afterwards, Pegasus/Helios, summoned by Chibiusa, grants them dream mirrors, knowing that the trio have suffered greatly and have truly changed for the better. They cannot, however, retain their current forms as humans and are taken away by Pegasus/Helios to the Crystal Forest. As he places them within the forest, he promises that one day they will be reborn as the humans they wish to be, with their beautiful dreams intact.

Hawk Eye has what look remarkably like breasts under that little chest toga, and even Tigers Eye, while having nice broad shoulders, also has some noticeable hips. Fish Eye, of course, is the most ambiguous; he looks feminine but is also far too aggressive to fit the typical parameters of femme.”
