Kangaroos are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. Out of the eleven, nine kangaroos are female, and all females have pouches with a joey inside, making them the first species to have a significant trait difference between male and female of the same species, followed by the deer. The joeys in their pouches will move their mouths the same time their mother does, and will mimic their emotions (mad, sad, etc.). Notably, the shirts of female kangaroos cover their entire torso and abdomen, including the pouch, but the shirts of male kangaroos stop partway down their stomachs. All of the female kangaroos' initial catchphrases, except Sylvia's, relate to their baby. For example, Kitt's initial catchphrase is "child," and Mathilda's is "wee baby."

Of the female kangaroos, three are normal, three are snooty, two are peppy, and one is big sister. The big sister kangaroo, Sylvia, originally appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ with a snooty personality. Both male kangaroo villagers have the cranky personality, and there are no jock, lazy, or smug kangaroos. Additionally, Valise, Koharu, and Marcy, the latter two being the only peppy kangaroos, have not reappeared since Doubutsu no Mori e+. Mathilda, Sylvia, and Walt are the only kangaroos who are not in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp yet.

In Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: City Folk, kangaroo villagers cannot be one of the starting villagers in the player's town.
