"Yeah, I hope it'll make Pooh better!"
—Roo

Roo is one of the characters residing in the Hundred Acre Wood, and the son of Kanga. He appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Whenever he goes out with his mother, he goes inside her pouch. Roo is never seen alone, he is always found with either his mother Kanga or Tigger (whom he idolizes from their shared love of bouncing).

Roo appears in many of the mini games in 100 Acre Wood. The games he shows up in are Tigger's Giant Pot, Pooh's Muddy Path, Balloon Bounce, and The Exposition. In Kingdom Hearts, he is a big help in the Bouncing Spot page area where he helps Sora by catapulting him into the trees to get special items or Rare Nuts for Owl and he helps Sora with advice with Tigger's challenges. He is voiced by Jimmy Bennett.
