The Chibi Project fights fire with fire. In the anime series Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars uses fire attacks to fight evil. She can dish it out, but can she take it? The Chibi Project decided to find out.

To accomplish this test, we enlisted the help of professional fire eater, fire breather, and bizarre magician, Brian Brushwood, best known for Scam School, a podcast from Revision3.

Brian built up a witch's pyre. While he and Jekka get the episode started, Patrick nailed Sailor Mars's feet to the top of the pyre.

After a short history of fire eating, Brian took a swig of charcoal lighter fluid. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! He then blew a giant fireball which ignited Sailor Mars atop the pyre.

Sailor Mars's legs began to melt and she bent backwards. Brian rescued her and pushed her forward. She ended up leaning forward until her torso melted away from her body and fell down the pyre. Shortly thereafter, her legs melted from her feet and fell to the ground.

After letting the fire burn for several minutes, the remaining fire (which had not been eaten) was extinguished with water.

Surprisingly, she is still somewhat recognizable. Although her clothing has mostly disappeared and her hair has melted to her face and body, her general shape is still fairly recognizable.
