The Silence Glaive, also known as the Scythe of Silence (沈黙の鎌), was a polearm weapon carried by Sailor Saturn. It was used in the majority of her attacks and appeared in the anime, manga, Sailor Moon Crystal, musicals, and video games.

The Silence Glaive was a symbol of the end of all things. When dropped without words, it directly harnessed the power of Sailor Saturn's most powerful attack which could cause the entirety of a planet to turn into dust. This move was performed to its fullest extent once in the manga and Crystal, during the time of the Silver Millennium after the fall of the Moon Kingdom.

In the anime, Sailor Saturn's ultimate attack using the Silence Glaive was a double edged sword, as using it would also result in her own death.


  • In the booklet for volume 3 of the Sailor Moon Crystal blu-ray release, its name was written as サイレンス・グレイヴ (sairensu gureivu) instead of サイレンス・グレイブ (sairensu gureibu).
