“Catch ya on the flip side.”


Context

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers was one of the big series for children of the early 1990s. Other Power Rangers series and movies followed it to the present day. It is one of the well-known examples of the sentai genre, featuring young people in colour-coded “knight of the future” armor and super-vehicles fighting to defend humanity.

It is one of those shows that spliced cheaply-bought Japanese live-action series with less-than-expensive original footage showing the heroes in their human lives – so as to be more relatable to young Western viewers.

The action footage, and a variable percentage of the story, comes from the Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger  series.

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers is a feature of many people’s genre culture, particularly for those born in North America circa 1980.


Background

  • Real Name: Kimberly Ann Hart
  • Marital Status: Single
  • Known Relatives: Unnamed Parents
  • Group Affiliation: The Power Rangers
  • Base Of Operations: Angel Grove, USA
  • Height: 5’2” Weight: 110lbs
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown


Powers & Abilities

Strength Level

When not clad in her strength-augmenting uniform, Kim possesses the normal human strength one would expect to find in a youth of her age, height and build who engages in regular exercise.

With her strength augmented by her uniform, Kim can lift (press) at least 500lbs directly overhead.

Known Superhuman Powers

Kimberly possesses a number of superhuman powers derived from her (presumably) mystic augmentation uniform. The uniform heightens her strength and durability; effectively rendering her invulnerable to damage from firearms, large impacts, falls and even massive explosions.

It also enhances her stamina, agility and reflexes to levels comparable to those possessed by most Olympic athletes and grants her the ability to leap inhuman distances.

Abilities

Kimberly is an Olympic caliber gymnast and acrobat who has become a good hand to hand combatant thanks to her training with the other Rangers (particularly Jason). She is also a burgeoning musician and has a “green thumb.”

Weapons & Paraphernalia

As the Pink Ranger, Kimberly wields the standard Ranger sidearm into battle; a Blade Blaster. The Blade Blaster is a small high-tech dagger like weapon that can be quickly converted into a high-powered laser gun.

Additionally, Kimberly can summon a weapon called the Power Bow. The bow itself generates explosive pink arrows out of thin air that can be fired at enemies with deadly effect.

When necessary, the Power Bow can be combined with the other Rangers “Power Weapons” to form a large crossbow like weapon; the Power Blaster.

Kimberly utilizes a Wrist Communicator to keep in close contact with her fellow Rangers and Zordon in the command centre. The communicator appears to be watch-like device that Kimberly wears on her left wrist.

In addition to its standard cell-phone like features, the Wrist Communicator can access the Rangers’ Command Center’s Teleportation system remotely; allowing Kim to teleport wherever she needs to go at will.

Finally, while clad in her Pink Ranger Uniform Kimberly gains the ability to summon and pilot the Pterodactyl Dinozord.

Limitations

When not in use, Kimberly’s Pink Ranger uniform presumably exists invisibly and immaterially about her body. In order to cause the suit to manifest itself in the material world, Kim must hold aloft her Power-Morpher (which contains her “Power Coin”) and utter the command “Pterodactyl.”

Until she does so, Kim is a normal human teenager and is quite vulnerable to conventional injury.


History

A general history of the Power Rangers can be found in the team’s own WORG entry.


Description

Kimberly is an attractive Caucasian teenager with brown eyes and shoulder length dark brown hair. Kimberly has a trim and athletic build as a result of the many hours she has spent training in gymnastics.

Like all of the Rangers, Kim dresses almost exclusively in the same colour of her Ranger designation. In Kimberly’s case, this is pink. Kim’s outfits are all made up of varying shades of pink, white and blue; she tends to stick to jean shorts, pink shirts and skirts and often overalls.

When her powers are active, Kimberly is clothed in her form-fitting spandex body suit. Three white diamonds are featured prominently across the chest, upper shoulders and the middle of the back of the costume. Her hands and forearms are covered by a pair of white gloves that have triangular diamonds at the upper end of the gloves.

Her feet are covered by a similar pair of white boots. Situated around the middle of waist sits a pure white belt that holds Kim’s Power-Morphers in the place of a belt buckle. Outside of all of the white, the rest of the costume is a vibrant pink.

Kim’s Pink Ranger uniform is topped off with a helmet; the top of which is fashioned in the shape of a pterodactyl. The wings and snout of the Pterodactyl surround the visored eyes of the helmet and the mouth piece of the helmet is covered by a grey moulded material that is fashioned in the shape of a mouth.


Personality

Like many characters found in television shows designed for young children, Kimberly is good to a fault. She is excessively polite, motivated, cheerful, and civically minded. She is brave to a fault and will fight to the bitter end to foil the plans of Rita Repulsa and her minions.

Kimberly’s standout personality is her valley girl like attitude and general playfulness. Initially, she is the closest of the Rangers to meet Zordon’s description of “teenagers with attitude.”

She has a sarcastic wit (at least for a 1980s children show) and will often attempt to hit her foes with “wacky” dialogue and puns. She is also a romantic at heart and believes in love at first sight.

Kimberly was instantly enchanted upon her first sighting on Tommy, and the two eventually entered in a romantic relationship during the first two seasons of the show.


Quotes

(Upon first entry to her Dinozord) “Nice stereo.”

“Don’t look at me. I don’t speak Billy.”

“Polly wanna Megazord ?”

“Morphinominal !”
