So I have a story I blocked out for a Sailor-Moon/Scooby-Doo Fusion. As a fusion, the idea is that one set of characters operate in the rules of the other world, while still being themselves.
So I was planning to do Sailor-Moon in a Scooby-Doo style mystery, and not only grab some of the tropes from Scooby-Doo, but set up some of the relationships like Scooby-Doo.
Usagi - Scooby-doo - Eating, not brave unless bribed
Ami - Velma - Losing Glasses
Rei - Daphne - Danger Prone Daphne
Makoto - Fred - Split Up
Minako - Shaggy - Zoinks, large sandwich - gymnast?
Usagi (Scooby) and Minako (Shaggy), short skit to confuse the monster - use transformation pen
Convoluted plan made by Makoto - has to fail (almost purely a SD trope, have it involve her beating up monster at some point).
Usagi (Scooby) jumping into (Minako's) Shaggy’s arms
Explaining away the mystery at the end. Especially unexplained monster abilities.
The girls should transform at the climax to face the monster. Monster has to be NOT REALLY a monster that they would blast to win. There should be an unmasking.http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/ScoobyDoohttp://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/SailorMoon
I did an outline very threadbare, you can use if you want, or do your own thing, I'm kinda giving this away.
Villain dressed in costume - does something, evil
The accidental investigators or The Curse of the Ghastly Mansion
Before the Main Characters
Someone is killed via the "monster's" style.
They get involved
Girls stop at a diner before going to the mountain retreat
Hear an urban legend of the monster
Rei (Daphne) keeps wanting Makoto (Fred) - Makoto is more interested in the monster
Minako (Shaggy) and Ami (Velma) are dating - they share a drink
Usagi (Scooby) and Minako (Shaggy) are best friends - Usagi wants to share the drink too
Usagi talks about Mamo-chan (playing this straight from SM)
Monster shows up - Usagi jumps into Minako’s arms
They go to stay at the hotel, they hear that people have been disappearing there
An investigator is staying at the hotel as well - looking for someone who killed his wife

Makoto makes a plan to take down the monster - They split up
Minako and Usagi run into the monster, but they disguise themselves to get away.

They go looking for Rei, and she says what happened.
Ami - “I don’t think this is a monster”
The monster attacks the investigator, injuring him and he has to go to the hospital

They unmask the monster, only to find out that he was the wife killer.
“I guess he was a monster all along.” - Ami
