Kangaroos are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. All female kangaroos 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, along with the deer. The joeys in their pouches will mimic their mother's emotions (mad, sad, etc.) and blink at the exact same time, though they lack mouths. 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."

There are eleven kangaroo villagers so far, one of which is an islander. Nine are female and two are male, making it a predominantly female species. Of these, three are normal, three are snooty, two are peppy, two are cranky, and one is big sister, though was previously snooty. There are currently no lazy, jock, or smug kangaroos.

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 also absent from Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Additionally, Kitt is the only kangaroo to appear in every game so far.

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