|~ Sailor Jupiter's stock introduction.|
Lita Kino, also known as Makoto Kino (in the Japanese and VIZ Media version), is the Sailor Scout known as Sailor Jupiter and one of the main protagonists of the Sailor Moon series. Her name means "Faithfulness of Wood", and her attacks are based around lightning and wood. Wood, in Japanese astrology, represents flexibility. She has the ability to fly as well.
She is very tall for her age. She is extremely independent, as she was orphaned at an early age and had to take care of herself. Her parents died early. She sees herself as a protector, even before she became a sailor scout. Lita has always been a good cook which greatly impresses her friend Serena Tsukino. When Lita first appears she had an amazing looking lunch that she made herself and attracted Serena Tsukino to ask for a portion of it.

She wears pink rose-shaped earrings, and a special hair tie with two green round balls on it. During the Silver Millennium, she was the ruler of the planet Jupiter. She is the Sailor Scout of Nature.
She wore a green strap dress with two little green roses at the hips. The dress is very long and has a split starting from the little green rose on the left side. She has a green choker and a green ribbon with a red rose in the center in her hair. She dwelt in castle Io and wore a green gown.
She is currently voiced by Ami Koshimizu in the Japanese version of the Crystal anime, and by Amanda Céline Miller in the English version of both anime series, who is also notable as the current English voice of Boruto Uzumaki. In the past for the first anime, she was voiced by Emi Shinohara in the Japanese version, and by Susan Roman for both the DIC and Cloverway English versions.
Lita bounced from school to school, often having to leave because she was getting into fights. Even after she transferred to Juuban Municipal Junior High School, she still wore the uniform from her previous school while a student there, as she was unusually tall and they did not have her size available at the time. As with the other Sailor Scouts, her loyalty to Sailor Moon never faltered.
Her personality was similar in all versions of the series, though she was a bit more tomboyish and less boy-crazy in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon than in the anime or manga.
