Sailor Jupiter (セーラージュピター Sērā Jupitā?, also known as Super Sailor Jupiter), is the secret identity of Lita Kino. The third of the central Sailor Scouts discovered, Sailor Jupiter commands the element of lightning and possesses a unique connection with nature. The "brawn" of the group, Sailor Jupiter is an offensive fighter with superhuman strength bolstered by her martial arts knowledge. In the 30th Century, she becomes the protector of Neo-Queen Serenity and her daughter, Princess Rini.
Sailor Jupiter is the strongest of the five Inner Sailor Scouts and Princess Serena's protectors. Her education in martial arts as self defense gave her a greater advantage of potential enemies and normal human beings.
When faced with the Shadow warrior Game Machine Man, Sailor Jupiter was able to overpower him without transforming in a feat of superhuman strength, a manifestation of her powers. Transformed, Sailor Jupiter was able to weaken the likes of Negamonsters and the Seven Shadows to an even greater degree.
As exhibited in fights like the ones against the Kisenian Blossoms and the Doom and Gloom Girls, Sailor Jupiter can only be stopped by overwhelming numbers, or by an individual opponent who possesses greater strength than her own.
Sailor Jupiter possesses the ability to summon lightning using an attack phrase ("Jupiter Thunder"), and harness it using the lightning rod that extends from her tiara. In unique cases, she can invoke her power with a longer incantation. Jupiter Sailor Jupiter is only able to use or manipulate the lightning from the rod itself.
The attack is only strong enough to weaken certain enemies (such as Negamonsters) or is ineffective against humanoid opponents. Sailor Jupiter is not impervious to lightning-based attacks, and when overpowered she'll rely on a attack that is often strong enough to kill an opponent and herself in the process.
