Minako's first transformation pen, while following the transformation pen design of the other Inner Senshi in the anime, was different in Codename: Sailor V, the Sailor Moon manga, and Sailor Moon Crystal. This was because it was the same pen she used to become Sailor V and Sailor Venus.
This pen, as well serving as a transformation device, was a communication device through which Boss conversed with Minako and Artemis. It also had magic powers when used for writing; Minako sometimes used it to get perfect scores in school tests, which Artemis did not approve of. In addition, it seemed to have a connection with the Sailor V game, as it reacted whenever someone was scoring particularly well.
