Motsuki, and formerly nicknamed Henchmoth, is an antagonist (but sometimes an anti-hero) in the television series PJ Masks. She is a baby moth alien and Luna Girl's little sister.
Motsuki first appeared in "Moon Madness", as one of Luna Girl's many moths. After helping Luna Girl steal the Moon Crystal from PJ Masks Headquarters, Luna Girl decided to promote her to her new henchman, and used the crystal to give her a name, a new appearance, and some powers. Then in "Moth on the Moon", Motsuki decided to go to the Moon to become Luna Girl's new sister by forming a strange Moon Crystal in a cave to hibernate, fueled by negative energy, to hatch her into a humanoid-like moth.
At first, Luna is quite taken with this cute creature that will follow her around and do what she says. But, Motsuki is a quick study, and soon eclipses Luna Girl in ways of badness! She has a powerful crystal embedded in her chest which gives her power to travel to the moon. It also gives her the ability to paralyze the PJ Masks! How can something so young and cute be so mean?
Motsuki's personality has changed with each transformation:
Originally, when she was a normal moth and later a henchman, she was very loyal to Luna Girl. Unlike other moths, she was smart, cunning, and sneaky, but also very bossy. She can be pretty fast as she is seen being chased by PJ Robot and then trapping him inside the HQ’s vault, and she is more focused than the other moths, who are usually distracted. However, like Luna Girl, she has a soft side.
After being transformed into a alien that now serves as Luna Girl's sister, she decided to be on odds against Luna's demands and became rambunctious and irritating towards both her own big sister and the PJ Masks and has even lost her soft side. Rather than serve her, Motsuki now frequently argues with Luna, and is often treated like a baby, but she still loves and cares about her even though Luna doesn't feel the same towards her most of the time.
Despite this, she is still very cute, smart, and is a quick learner; her soft side even returned in "Big Sister Motsuki", when PJ Robot wanted her to make the babies act nice and behave well, and when she realized that the babies want to grow up like she does, making her decide to change them back to normal with the baby beam and decides to release PJ Robot from her moon bubble afterwards.
In "Heroes of the Sky", when she temporarily turned back to a normal moth, her current personality remained unchanged when she was an alien, as she says that she also wants to be in charge as well.
Motives and abilities
In most of Motsuki's appearances after she hatched on the Moon, she would hatch plans to prove that she is not a baby to Luna Girl such as trapping her own sister on the moon, using the Baby Beam to turn the PJ Masks, Romeo and her sister into babies, and deifying who's plan is better with Luna Girl.
In some of Motsuki's appearances, she would serve as a right-hand man to Luna Girl at the PJ Masks' certain missions.
Motsuki originally had no powers, but after coming to the moon and becoming her henchman, Luna Girl gave her the following powers:
Lunar Beam: She can shoot a beam from her antennae or the red crystal embedded from her chest, and trap her opponents.
Sensing Power: Allows her to track an opponent nearby.
Lunar Crystal Sensing: Motsuki has the power to sense any moon crystal.
The following powers replaced the previous powers she originally got from Luna Girl after she hatched into a humanoid-moth girl with the use of the harvest moon crystal:
Moon Bubble: An upgraded version of her lunar beam power that allows her to shoot a beam from her antennae that can trap opponents in moon bubbles.
Teleportation: Motsuki can teleport herself from Earth to the moon, and back again.
Crystal Summoning: Motsuki can make crystals grow from the ground to trap anyone, including Luna Girl.
Psychic Vision: Motsuki can use her mind to see where people or things are.
Driving Skills: Motsuki learned how to control the HQ Rocket in "Motsuki The Best", and she can even drive the new Owl Glider in her moth form in "Heroes of the Sky".
Motsuki is teal in appearance, wears a lilac and purple suit with a pink crystal on it. She has four arms, wings, pink eyeballs, purple eyes and purple eyelids.
Before being transformed into a alien, Motsuki was largely identical to Luna Girl’s typical moths. However, she has glowing marks all over her body and wings, and on her forehead is a glowing moon mark. When using her sensing power, her eyes are glowing pink.
And before being promoted as Luna Girl's henchman, Motsuki was originally a regular moth, identical to the other moths with no physical difference to her at all.
