Character development of Sailor Mars

Rei is not named in the original proposal for a hypothetical Codename: Sailor V anime, but an identical character in miko clothing is present, named Miyabi Yoruno. Creator Naoko Takeuchi confirms that this character eventually became Rei, and writes that her role as a shrine maiden was inspired by Takeuchi's own experience working as a miko for Shiba Daijongu Shrine while she was in college. She also states that she was frequently "hit on" by the shrine's patrons, a source of annoyance that carries over into the character's life.
Hikawa Shrine, where Rei lives and works, is based on the real-life Hikawa Shrines, one of which is in Azabu Jūban, where the story is set. The kanji for "ice" in the original name (氷川神社) is replaced with the kanji for "fire"—a reflection of Rei's element.
Sailor Mars's original costume design, like the others', was fully unique. It featured an alternate bow, double shoulder-guards, plate-armor, elaborate jewelry, and a gold-rimmed mask. Her trademark high-heeled shoes were already present, as well. Later, Takeuchi was surprised by these sketches and stated that she did not remember drawing them. In an intermediate design, the pendant that sat at her waist in the early manga was also intended to be worn as a necklace in her civilian form. Hitoshi Doi states that Kunihiko Ikuhara was responsible for much of Rei's changed personality in the anime.
The kanji of Rei's surname translate as "fire" (火 hi) and "field" or "civilian" (野 no). Her given name is in kantakana rei (レイ) and therefore difficult to translate. Possible meanings include "spirit" (霊), "companion" (儷), "cool" (冷), and "zero" (零), with the first being most commonly assumed. Because katakana is the alphabet usually used for foreign loanwords, it may also be intended as a Western name, such as Raye or Rae. In the Chinese versions of the series (anime and manga), Rei's name is written with the character "麗", which carries the same phonetic as "Rei", but means "beauty." Regardless, the entire name is structured as a pun , as the syllable "no" indicates a possesive, so that her name can also be understood as "Rei of Fire." Her prototypical name, Yoruno Miyabi (夜野みやび), means "Elegance of Night." Rei's name (レイ 野の Rei Hino) translated could act as a pun as "Ray of Fire". This would be the most literal translation of her name.
In an early DiC promotional tape that advertised the English-dubbed series to television stations, Rei was called Dana.
It has been noted that her outfit as Sailor Mars echoes the colors of her miko robes, and she is the character that is most tied into tradition

Super Sailor Mars

Super Sailor Mars - Her earrings were six-pointed stars, her choker had a yellow star attached to it (which in the manga had a red gemstone in the center), her collar remained at one white stripe, the center of her front bow was a red heart, the bottom of her shoulder pads was translucent, and the back waist bow was enlarged and lengthened.
As you can see from the right picture of the above,the dress is I introduced one,but since the star and heart are hard to find in the market,we just change a little the style when we create the costume,we remove the star on the choker and the heart on the bow,instead,we make a pure red choker and blue bow,just refer the left one,you can see that,I think many people will like our style.For this sailor mars' costume, it is made of cotton and polyester,the cotton is elastic so that you can wear it properly and won't feel uncomfortable since if if we make with cotton,the dress will be tight when wearing.For this lovely costume,I guess many people have been attractive by it,now go ahead and get one for yourself!

Attacks of Sailor Mars

Akuryo Taisan: One of Rei's powers as a miko. She threw an ofuda at the enemy while yelling "Akuryo Taisan". It could immbolize the opponent, or as in the R movie, exorcise enemy influence over a person or place. In the manga, Sailor Mars caused the the target to be consumed in flames.
Mars Fireball Ignite: Sailor Mars would begin the attack by clasping her hands together with her two index fingers pointing outwards. A fireball would form at the tips of her index fingers which she then shot forward, killing or wounding her enemy by engulfing him or her in flames.
Fire Soul Bird: To perform this attack, Sailor Mars first chanted while holding an ofuda in front of her, then threw the ofuda and yelled, "Fire Soul Bird" to release a fireball from her index fingers. The fire then engulfed the ofuda and took the shape of a phoenix-like bird.
Mars Celestial Fire Surround: To perform this attack, Sailor Mars moved her hand in a circular motion around her body, creating a ring of fire. The ring then turned into eight smaller rings that flew toward the enemy.
Mars Snake Fire: To perform this attack, she created a snake made of fire and sent it toward the enemy.
Mars Flame Sniper: To perform this attack, Sailor Mars summoned a fiery bow and arrow, and then shot the arrow toward her target.

Sailor Mars in Manga and Anime

In the manga, Rei is a somewhat snotty but sophisticated Shinto priestess. She is hesitant at first to accept her role as a sailor soldier but fights loyally alongside the soldiers to protect her princess and Earth. She is the ideal Japanese woman - beautiful, intelligent and reserved. Her personality in the manga differs much from the anime; she does not have the temper her anime self has.
In the manga, she is close to Minako Aino more than in the anime.

In the anime, Rei is more hot-tempered and less icy. She fights with Usagi Tsukino a lot because she worries for her safety and that of the planet they are sworn to protect. Rei often disapproves of Usagi's slacker attitude. Later, Rei admits herself that she was wrong about Usagi as a Sailor Senshi Leader. Despite their fights, they are extremely close friends who love each other dearly. She lives with her grandfather at Hikawa Shrine. She is not only hot-headed but is skilled in the art of fire reading, and has prophetic dreams.

Sailor Mars

Sailor Mars (セーラーマーズ Sērā Māzu) is one of the central characters in the Sailor Moon metaseries. Her real name is Rei Hino (火野 レイ Hino Rei, or Raye Hino in the English versions), a Shinto priestess and schoolgirl who can transform into one of the series' specialized heroines, the Sailor Senshi.
Sailor Mars is the third member of the Sailor Senshi to be discovered by Sailor Moon, after Sailor Mercury, and is the secondary leader of the Guardian (or "Inner") Senshi after Sailor Venus. She manipulates fire and heat, and has various psychic abilities related to her role as a miko in the Shinto shrine where she lives.
Aside from the main body of the Sailor Moon series, Rei features in two different manga short stories. The first, Casablanca Memories, is entirely about her and her past; the second, Rei and Minako's Girls School Battle, is shared with Minako Aino. A number of image songs featuring her character have been released as well, including the contents of three different CD singles.
