Kenji Tsukino was Usagi Tsukino's father in present-day Tokyo. He was not aware of his daughter's Senshi activities, nor did he know that his "niece", who appeared in the Sailor Moon R season, was in fact his granddaughter.

Kenji was portrayed in a very typical fatherly manner: he worked as a magazine editor and could not cook, but tried to help out by occasionally doing grocery shopping for his wife. He was very kind and a little over-protective; for example, when he found out Usagi had begun dating in Sailor Moon R/the Black Moon Clan arc, he feared that his daughter had become a delinquent. Usagi considered her perfect man to have the same attitude and character as her dad.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon[edit]

Save for some mention by other characters, Kenji was almost completely absent throughout the live-action series. He only appeared in the Special Act to attend Usagi's wedding.
