Death Reborn Revolution was an attack used by Sailor Saturn using the Silence Glaive in the manga, musicals, and Crystal. When she performed this attack, ribbons appeared around her, leading to some confusion between this and her video game attack, Death Ribbon Revolution. This attack was not Sailor Saturn's final attack that destroyed everything. For that, Saturn simply needed to drop the Silence Glaive with the intention of bringing about the end.
In the manga, it was difficult to determine the precise effect of this attack. The attack lasted for six pages of the manga, during which a mass of ribbons materialized from nowhere, winding around Sailor Saturn and tearing through Pharaoh 90. As the ribbons slashed at him, Pharaoh 90 cried out that his power was being drawn away by negative energy. At this same time, enormous gouts of power erupted from the ground, destroying the ruins of Mugen Academy and reaching for the Tau Star System hanging suspended in the sky. As this occurred after Saturn called out this attack, but before she dropped the Silence Glaive, it appeared to be part of this attack.
In Crystal there were similar visuals, with ribbons of purple energy that wound about the Silence Glaive until Sailor Saturn lifted it into the air, at which point an enormous column of power shot between Pharaoh 90 on the ground and the Tau Star System in the sky above. The attack drew back the masses of black lava with which Pharaoh 90 had covered the Earth and wounded him, apparently stunning him or holding him in place so that Sailor Saturn could then drop the Silence Glaive to destroy him.
Sailor Saturn also used this attack in different ways several times in the musicals. For example, in Sailor Moon Sailor Stars she performed it together with Sailor Moon's Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss in order to revive the Sailor Senshi killed by Sailor Galaxia. After she awakened in Mugen Gakuen - Mistress Labyrinth, she used it to bring about the end of the world, leaving only Sailor Moon alive.
- Sailor Saturn's only attack in the game Sailor Moon: Another Story and one of her attacks in Sailor Moon SuperS - Various Emotion could have been this one, but there were contradictions about her attack's name, as it appeared spelled one way in the game manuals and another way in the game itself. In Another Story, her attack appeared as energy ribbons which encircled multiple enemies at the same time. In Various Emotion, the attack appeared as Death Ribbon Revolution did in Sailor Moon SuperS: Zenin Sanka!! Shuyaku Soudatsusen, except the energy was purple instead of blue.
- The literal meanings of the kanji characters used in the name of this attack in the manga are "death" (死), "world" (世界), and "change" (変革).
