* In ''Film/RiseOfTheGuardians'', Jack Frost pokes fun at Bunnymund's Australian accent by calling him the Easter Kangaroo. Of course, this is also ironic since rabbits are an invasive and highly destructive species in modern Australia.

* [[http://wikimon.net/Kangalmon Kangalmon]] from ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', also a boxing type.
** Actually, it's just a Veemon in a Kangaroo suit and a motorcycle helmet.
** There is no apparent in-universe explanation for the plushie in its pouch.
*** Odd, considering that all the other digimon with plushies have explanation for them. Usually, it's a representation of another digimon that that one is supposed to be allied with. Perhaps it's supposed to be a Veemon plushie with boxing gloves?

* Kangaskhan is a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' based on a Kangaroo, but aside from the pouch with a baby, it also resembles a more reptilian-based dinosaur. Virtually no references to Australia are made with Kangaskhan though (apart ''VideoGame/PokemonGo'', where that's the only place where it can be found).

* ''FlashForward2009'' liked to show a random kangaroo hopping around after flash forwards, as a BookEnds sort of thing.
* One episode of ''{{ER}}'' features news reports about an escaped kangaroo, with Jerry the Receptionist listening to them and planning how to capture/kill it. At the very end of the episode, one of the main characters is walking home when they see the kangaroo in an alleyway.
* There are a good number of videos featuring people bothering and then getting kicked by kangaroos on ''AmericasFunniestHomeVideos''. No, they're not always {{Groin Attack}}s.

If it's a male, expect him to be named "Joey", have a comically exaggerated Aussie accent and possibly [[MisterSeahorse have a pouch]] (even though, in reality, [[AnimalGenderBender only the females]] [[ArtisticLicenseBiology have pouches]]). It may also be depicted {{boxing|Kangaroo}}, [[KangarooPouchRide carrying someone in its pouch]], maybe sporting a Australian Army slouch hat with one brim pinned up, or just plain jumping really high. Surprisingly, the fact that real kangaroos have two penises rarely gets invoked.
