The Watery (水) is one of the fifty-two Clow Cards in the anime and is also part of the original nineteen cards from the manga series. It is one of the four elemental cards, and as such it is one of the most powerful. Watery falls under the power of the Moon, Yue and under Eastern Magic.

Appearance

Watery resembles a blue, adolescent mermaid with fins for ears and two wing-like fins on her back. Her hair is parted in the middle with several strands emanating from the top with a scaly band decorating her forehead.

As a Sakura Card in the manga, Watery receives two star earrings and a collar resembling her headband

Personality

As an attack card, Watery is noted as being extremely aggressive and violent, even attempting to drown Sakura and her friends, as well as others before she was resealed.

Magic and Abilities

Water Magic (Hydrokinesis): The Watery is able to control water and create whirlpools and tidal waves. It also once created a serpentine body of water. It can also absorb the power from other water-based Clow Cards like the Rain card.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.

Synopsis

Clow Cards arc

In Episode 3 of the anime, Watery makes a home in an aquarium where it attacked the animals and keepers, and later Sakura, too. In the manga (Volume 1), Watery first appears in school's swimming pool, where it tried to drown a number of students. In both cases, Sakura Kinomoto manages to capture Watery by luring it into a walk-in freezer and locking it in until it froze.

However, in the anime, Sakura used Windy to lure it into the freezer to stir up the ice inside, speeding up the process.[1]

Watery also teamed with Windy to help take down the Firey Card which enabled Sakura to capture it at last.

Sakura uses Watery in an attempt to defeat Earthy in Episode 45, but Earthy does not seem to be affected by Watery's powers.[2]

Sakura Cards arc

In Episode 63, Sakura transforms Watery to save Rika from drowning in a pool gone haywire. In Volume 11 of the manga, Sakura transforms Watery to avoid Eriol Hiiragizawa's fire attack. In the manga the Watery receives star earrings and a necklace that matches her headdress.

Appearances in Other Media

In the second movie, Sakura uses Watery at the beginning of the movie to vanquish a fire monster created by the Create in a battle scene for one of Tomoyo's videos. However, the Nothing soon captures Watery and it plays no further part in the movie.

Trivia

  • Prior to being captured, Kero noted that the Watery was an aggressive Card. But after Sakura captured it and signed her name, Watery soon became a calm force, willing to help Sakura.
  • Watery is influenced by the moon and Eastern Magic. She is based on the Japanese equivalent of a mermaid, the "Ningyo".
  • In the English-dubbed version, Watery is called Water for unknown reasons, despite the other cards retaining their original name.
  • The only other exception is Earthy being called Earth in the English-dubbed version.
  • Watery's design parallels Firey in several ways:
    • Both resemble adolescent figures.
    • Their hair is parted in the middle.
    • Both possess a circlet on their foreheads.
