Tinker Bell, "Tink" for short, is the fairy we all know and love — spunky, rebellious, impatient, impulsive, determined, persistent, temperamental... yet charming and lovable. She has a talent for pots and pans, a love of "lost things", and is braver than most fairies when it comes to getting close to humans. She tends to blame things on other people when she's frustrated, even if it is her fault. Of course, her temper can often get the better of her, but she’s always a selfless and dedicated friend when the chips are down.Tinker Bell loves challenging work, and especially loves anything made of metal — her workshop is even a human tea kettle. She is generally a hard worker, but occasionally enjoys playing games like fairy tag. Before the books started, Tinker Bell had spent a long time away from pots and pans to be with Peter Pan. However, when Peter brought Wendy (whom Tinker Bell refers to as "the Wendy") to Never Land, Tinker Bell was heartbroken and went back to Pixie Hollow after the adventure with the Darling children was over. (The Trouble With Tink).

Peter Pan (1953)

Tinker Bell in Peter Pan

In Peter Pan (1953), Tink (as the main tritagonist) doesn't speak, but she plays an important part in the film. From the beginning, she becomes jealous of Wendy because of the affection Peter shows her. At one point even tried to kill her by tricking the Lost Boys into shooting her. Later, she saved Peter from the bomb Captain Hook put in the hideout. They then went to save the others, and take Wendy and her brothers home.

Peter Pan in Return to Never Land (2002)

Similar to the last movie, Tinker Bell does not have any lines, but plays a big role in the movie. The movie seems to contradict the book’s telling of events after Peter Pan, since in this sequel to Peter Pan, Tinker Bell is one of the main characters. In Peter Pan in Return to Never Land, Peter saves a girl that was kidnapped by Captain Hook, whom he believes is Wendy. Tinker Bell, who has gotten over most of her previous jealousy of Wendy, helps save her, and they bring her to a safe place, where they learn that she is not Wendy at all, but rather her daughter, Jane. Tinker Bell is somewhat jealous of Jane after she and Peter take a flight through the island, and desperately tries to make her leave. She eventually accepts that Jane cannot leave the island without flying, which is something Jane cannot do. At one point, Jane is fed up with how childish Peter and the Lost Boys are, and blurts out that she doesn’t believe in fairies, and then storms off. After she leaves, Tinker Bell collapses and starts to fade out of disbelief. Peter and the Lost Boys involve Jane in one of their games to get her to believe, but just as their plan begins to work, Captain Hook kidnaps Peter and the Lost Boys, which he was able to do because he tricked Jane earlier. Peter tells Jane what happened to Tink, which upsets her, and she runs back to Peter and the Lost Boys’ house to tell Tink that she now believes in fairies, but it’s too late. Jane then lays the lifeless Tinker Bell on the bed, and begins to cry. Her suddenly believing in fairies revives Tinker Bell and they go to save Peter and the Lost Boys from Captain Hook. After that, Tink and Peter take Jane home, and they visit Wendy.

Tinker Bell (2008)

Tinker Bell began her life when a baby laughed for the first time on a winter's night in Tinker Bell. The laugh was carried on a dandelion seed (In Secret of the Wings, it was revealed that the laugh actually broke into two seeds and one was taken to winter and became Periwinkle) to Never Land, where it was guided by fast-flying fairies to a special area in the Pixie Dust Tree. Terence poured a cupful of pixie dust on the seed, and it turned into a small blond fairy. When searching over the items presented by the

fairies to find her talent during a special test to determine her talent, the tinkers' hammer was the only one she passed over. However, the hammer floated toward her and glowed brightly when she touched it, indicating great skill, and Queen Clarion was told by Never Land to name  her "Tinker Bell." She accepted her role as a tinker until learning that tinker fairies do not visit the Mainland. Unwilling to give up on seeing the mainland, she tried to learn how to be a different type of fairy from her friends, which proved impossible. Vidia suggested that Tink could become a garden fairy if she could round up the sprinting thistles into a pen, but Tink's efforts resulted in wrecking the fairies' efforts at bringing spring to the mainland. Tink was able to set the preparations for spring back on track with inventions she built from lost things, and as a sort of reward Queen Clarion allowed Tinker Bell to visit the Mainland to return a music box to a young Wendy.

Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure (2009)

In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, Tink was chosen to create a ceremonial scepter for the Autumn Revelry to create blue pixie dust. When Terence accidentally broke the scepter, Tink got furious causing her to break the moonstone (which was to go into the scepter). Tinker Bell set off to find the Mirror of Incanta, which would allow her to wish for a new moonstone. She reached the pirate ship which is thought of having the mirror with the help of a fire fly Blaze, but things went wrong here too, when she accidentally wishes for Blaze to be quiet. She realized that she is a bit too tempered. Terence came after finding out where she headed to he helped her use the broken fragments of the moonstone, which allowed her to create a more effective staff. She and Terence then led the Revelry to the Pixie Dust Tree.

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue (2010)

In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Tink went to Fairy Camp on the mainland, presumably an outpost where nature fairies stayed to monitor nature. While there she met Lizzy Griffiths, a lonely nine-year-old human girl. When Lizzy's father discovered Tinker Bell, he tried to capture and show her to other scientists, but ended up capturing Vidia instead. Tinker Bell, Lizzy, and her friends talked Dr. Griffiths into releasing Vidia.

Secret of the Wings (2012)

In Secret of the Wings Tinkerbell travels to the Winter Woods. During her trip, Tinkerbell meets a frost-talent fairy named Periwinkle whom she was born with the same laugh. Because of this, they are considered twin sisters due to the fact that not only do they look alike and think alike in some aspects, their wings have the exact same pattern on it, something that should not happen since every fairy's wings are meant to be different.

Pixie Hollow Bake Off (2013)

Tink challenges a baking fairy named, Gelata in a contest to see who can make the best cake with the best taste fro Queen Clarion's arrival day party.

The Pirate Fairy (2014)

In the sixth film, The Pirate Fairy , she and her friends- Silvermist, Rosetta, Iridessa, Fawn, and Vidia- set off on a mission to 'save' an ex dust-keeper fairy Zarina, from pirates because she took the fragile blue dust from Pixie Hollows. Only then do they find out that she is the captain of the Pirate Ship. Because of her curiosity and research of Pixie dust, Zarina switches Tink and her friend's talents, leaving Tink as a water fairy. Through a series of challenges and obstacles, including the pirates themselves, Tink helps Zarina realise that she belongs in Pixie Hollows, being a dust-keeper. In the end, Tinker Bell is switched back to her original talent of what she does best- being a Tinker- thanks to the returned Zarina.
