Sakura Card Arc
When Eriol Hiiragizawa transfers to Tomoeda Elementary, Ruby Moon takes on the form of Nakuru Akizuki and enrols at Seijou High School; the same school and class as Touya Kinomoto and Yukito Tsukishiro. Once there, they become a general nuisance; hugging Touya constantly and interrupting Touya and Yukito's conversations. They also taunt Yukito when Touya is not around and remarks that "older models can never compete with the new".
They are a very skilled jumper, as they jump everywhere; jumping from tall buildings, and long distances.
Ruby is able to sense that Yue's magical energy is rapidly running out, and that Touya's magical energy is the key to renew it. They planned to take that energy for theirself, which would render Touya powerless; resulting in Yue's destruction. However, their efforts in that direction prove futile and Touya eventually handed his power over to Yue. Ruby then gives up on their pursuit of Touya and returns to focus on helping Eriol as his guardian.
In the final confrontation with Sakura Kinomoto, Ruby Moon fights Yue. Although they fight evenly for most of the battle, Yue eventually proves to be more determined.
After Yue and Cerberus successfully rush past Ruby Moon and Spinel Sun, Ruby Moon declares that Spinel and theirself are stronger in terms of power. Spinel responds in favor of Yue and Cerberus, saying "It must be the power of the heart that believes in their owner."
Powers and Abilities
Flight: Using their butterfly-like wings, they are capable of flying at high speeds.
Crystal Shards: Much like Yue, Ruby can create large, red crystals which fly at the opponent with great speed and power; capable of causing a lot of damage due to their sharpness.
Energy Creation & Control: By forming red-colored energy around their hands, she can use them as blades.
Lunar Empowerment: As the guardian governed by the moon, their magic grows stronger when she draws more strength from it.
Constantly annoyed by their active interest in him, which takes the form of aggressive displays of affection. She has, on one occasion, jumped from the second story window to the ground floor where Touya was and landed on him to give him chocolates. In fact, Touya has to physically shove them through the open door and slam it shut in order to give his powers to Yue after he finally had enough of their interruptions. Despite the fact that their primary objective was to prevent Touya from giving his powers to Yukito, it is implied in the manga that Nakuru at least felt feelings of friendship towards Touya, possibly even a small amount of romantic feelings.
Ruby has a sort of sibling relationship with Eriol's other guardian, Spinel. She teases him constantly and gives him a nickname, which he detests, while he makes snide remarks about their gender.
Just as Yue was to Clow, Ruby is fiercely loyal to their master; obeying his mysterious orders and taking care of him like an older relative would.
- They make a cameo appearance in the second movie: Cardcaptor Sakura Movie 2: The Sealed Card, alongside Spinel and Kaho Mizuki.
- Though presented as female and preferring female clothing, Ruby Moon (aka Nakuru Akizuki) is biologically gender-less.
