Kimberly Ann Hart is a fictional character in the Power Rangers universe. She was played by actress Amy Jo Johnson during the first Three seasons of the show, plus on the two feaute films of the franchise. Kimberly is best remembered as the first Pink Ranger from the first entry of the franchise Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Kimberly spent three years as a Ranger before giving up her powers for good to Zordon's new alumni Katherine Hillard.
Kimberly was one of the original five Power Rangers chosen by Zordon when Rita Repulsa attacked Earth following her release from containment. Kimberly received the Pterodactyl Power Coin and the Pterodactyl Dinozord, thus becoming the Pink Power Ranger. Kimberly starts the series as a stereotypical valley girl, but with a heightened awareness for her friends. Throughout the series, she is the member of the team most likely to fire off a sarcastic or witty retort. However, as the series progresses, she becomes a deeper and kind-hearted person, due to experiences such as switching bodies with the nerdy Billy Cranston and being turned into a punk after Baboo administers a potion to one of Kimberly's drinks.
Kimberly was a capable gymnast and was often shown training and using her abilities in fights against Rita's forces, as she fought with a blend of gymnastic maneuvers, elbows and kicks. She often used the environment around her as a springboard for her attacks and was often needed to defeat monsters with visible weaknesses, such as the archery-based Snizzard and the Terror Toad. She also taught dance classes at Angel Grove's Youth Center, while using American Sign Language to interpret for a student with a disability. Kimberly was revealed to be proficient in many hobbies throughout the series, including designing and arranging the floral pattern for a parade float , being regarded as a great cheerleader throughout Junior High School and being able to sing and play guitar.
Kimberly's best friend is Trini Kwan, with whom she starts a petition for environmental awareness and volunteered to become "Big Sisters" to Maria, a young girl who needed guidance. When Kimberly starts a botany club that is less popular than Trini's volleyball club, Lord Zedd uses a spell to turn Kim's jealousy into hatred; however, she overcomes the spell and the two girls defeat Zedd's monster, the Bloom of Doom, before reaffirming that they are lifelong friends. When Trini leaves for a Peace Conference in Switzerland, Kim becomes close with Trini's replacement, Aisha Campbell, with whom she shops everyday.
