"Pink Ranger, ready!"
Mia Watanabe is Samurai Ranger Sky, the Pink Samurai Ranger in Power Rangers Samurai. She is described as the "big sister" of the team, and is given the element of Sky to battle evil.
Mia is the mature, intelligent, attractive, optimistic warrior to the Power Rangers. Due to her caring nature, Mia is also known as the big sister of her team. She is known for her kindness and generosity and finds joy in making others feel better and helping them out. Mia is so eager to give that sometimes her own needs get overlooked. She hoped that someday she would find her "Prince Charming", possibly hinting that it was Kevin or Jayden.
While Mia is the more sensitive out of her teammates, she is anything but a damsel-in-distress. Mia isn't your average female samurai, or an average samurai in general. When it comes to kicking monster butt and saving the world, there really is almost no one more suited for the job than her.
She considers herself to be a great cook, but none of the other Rangers agree, save for Lauren, who adores her cooking. One thing they can agree on is that Mia is a crucial part of their monster-fighting team. She is also very compassionate, showing sympathy to Dayu after seeing her past misfortune and even asking if she couldn't return to her past self. However, she can be unforgiving towards those who hurt her friends.
When Mia was young, she used to play with her brother Terry by playing music. At some point after that, Mia began her training as a Samurai who would later become a Power Ranger.
Mia first appeared in Origins, where she joins the Samurai Rangers in their first battle to save the world.She attempts to help Kevin out in "Deal With a Nighlok", when a kid makes a deal with a Nighlok. After they find out what it was, she and Kevin attacked the Nighlok, and they manage to win when the other Samurai Rangers arrive.
In the episode "Forest for the Trees", Ji gives her the Beetle Disk. Mike becomes jealous that she got the Disk and not him. Mia later gives it to Mike, saying "he'll make better use of the Disk then she can".
Later in "He Ain't Heavy Metal, He's My Brother" her brother Terry arrives in town and she ends up singing with him and Antonio. This episode also marks her first use of the Black Box and Super Samurai Mode.
She later helps the team form the Gigazord.
Later she uses the "Power of the Ancestors" to be the second Ranger to use the Shogun Mode Battlizer after Jayden.
Mia alongside Antonio appears playing the everyday fun song at a concert that the Mega Rangers attended. Mia and the other Samurai Rangers returned as part of the army of Legendary Rangers that helped the Mega Rangers defeat the Armada once and for all, fighting in a huge battle against hundreds of X Borgs and dozens of Bruisers.

For added power in close combat and ground battles, Pink Ranger goes into Super Samurai Mode with the Black Box. The rangers can only access this mode one at a time.
Super Mega ModeWhile in the Black Box's Super Mode, if a Megazord battle is necessary, the Pink Ranger can morph her Spin Sword into the Mega Blade. The resulting combo is a mix of both Mega and Super modes. The rangers can only access this mode one at a time.
This mode appeared during the first of Trickster's illusions. This mode does not power up nor power down Mia.
The Pink Samurai Ranger Key is Mia's personal ranger key. This key along with the majority of the Core Ranger Keys are seen lining the Command Center's interior walls. This key is mainly used by Emma Goodall (Super Megaforce Pink) who uses it to fight as the Pink Samurai Ranger.
