The main human protagonist of the series, Kate is a school-aged girl who recently moved to the Big City from an unknown city. She is the owner of faithful dog companion Magic.

  • Action Survivor: Kate managed to survive the many dangers of Pocketville's outskirts yet she isn't too skilled.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: She sometimes does this to various pets she meets, but she uses this the most on Magic.
  • Badass Adorable: Of course, being only a girl, she has these moments as well, whether it would be by distracting Zull and Gort or helping to win the challenge Eva's gang challenges her friends to.
  • Badass Pacifist: Kate never even mentions anything about using violence against Eva and her goons. Though Kate is never seen using violence against anyone or doing anything violent for that matter. Usually the Royal Guards are more likely to get in a fistfight (or "paw-fight") with Eva's lackeys while Kate, Magic, and Eva stay in the background.
  • Best Friend: She is Magic's best friend.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Kate deals with having to be separated from her mother due to her workplace being located far away. But it gets worse from here. Once teleported to Pocketville, she ends up being separated from both her parents, being unable to return home until she figures out the Friendship Heart.
    • In Operation: Princess, Kate ends up being trapped in the Pet Buster's cage room by security bars that deploy when a button on the wall is pressed thanks to Krakia. Thankfully, she uses the strays' collars to make a rope to deactivate them. However, not only does the Pet Buster find her, but her father as well. Because she was caught, she ends up becoming grounded, not allowed to go out, and hits rock bottom.
  • Character Development: Kate starts off as a homesick girl who just moved to the Big City, missing both her old home and her mother (who had to be away because of her job). She became even more homesick and misses both her parents in the second episode. Eventually she matures and becomes more courageous and selfless as she ventures through Pocketville.
  • The Chosen One: As said by Evershell, she is the key to the Royal Guards' success in saving Ava, refilling the Magic Fountain, and piecing the Friendship Heart back together.
  • Dub Name Change: Her original Italian name is Flo, but was changed to Kate in the English dub possibly due to localization.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wears pigtails whenever she's in her school uniform but drops them for her standard "hair-down" look whenever she's wearing her everyday outfits.
    • She has these in the pilot too.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Kate has blonde hair and is pure of heart, as the Royal Guards and Princess Ava say.
  • The Heroine: She's the central one out of all the main characters.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: In the early episodes, Kate learns how to consult the Pocketpedia, which is having to provide concise and detailed information about what the child she sees/meets is in need of.
  • In-Series Nickname: Magic always calls her "Katie".
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Kate has blue eyes and is pure of heart.
  • Large and in Charge: As she's a human, it's a given she'll be larger than Magic and the Royal Guards. However, she doesn't completely lead the group, with William often helping her with leadership.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Kate treats Magic like a little brother, just like how her dog sees her as not just a Best Friend but a big sister. Also the fact that they're practically inseparable.
  • Limited Wardrobe: She only has five different sets of outfits: her school uniform and her four everyday outfits. All of them except for the uniform has a recurring pink-and-yellow scheme.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: She's the only human among the Pocketville denizens (who are civilized animals).
  • Muggles: Of course, originally being just a normal girl living in a city and oblivious to the fact that magic exists, eventually steps foot into Pocketville, a Magical Land. That is, until she eventually learns how to use the Friendship Heart.
  • Naïve Everygirl: Kate was just a normal girl who recently moved to the Big City and is just trying to cope with her mother being away for the time being, when she is beamed to Pocketville in Ava's place and ends up being the heroine of the magical land.
  • Only the Pure of Heart: This explains why Kate happened to end up in Pocketville.
  • Patchwork Kids: Kate has the hair and eye colors of her mother and the straight-hair texture of her father.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Her two main outfits have pink as the main color, and her swimsuit as seen in Sweet Dreams is pink as well.
  • Plucky Girl: In Pocketville, she has shown her courage and optimisim when facing Eva and her gang.
  • The Protagonist: Kate is the main heroine of the series, aside from her companion Magic.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the Blue Oni to Magic's Red Oni.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: She is granted the power to understand animals as long as she wears the Friendship Heart.
  • Summon Everyman Hero: She wasn't summoned to Pocketville on purpose, but because something went wrong in Magic's Friendship Ceremony (where Magic was going to be sent to her), and she ended up taking Ava's place. She eventually became the heroine of the city, standing up against Eva and her lackeys and helping to claim the other piece of the Friendship Heart.
  • Team Mom: She acts as a substitution to Ava, earning her this trope.
  • Token Human: She's the only human protagonist and the only human to step foot in Pocketville.
  • Vague Age: DVD releases of episodes from the first have stated that Kate is 10 years old, which means by the second half she would turn 11.
  • Youthful Freckles: Part of her character design.

One of the main protagonists, Magic is an energetic young German Shepherd who is Kate's companion.

  • Action Pet: Despite not often getting into physical quarrels, he will do anything to protect his owner Kate.
  • Adoptive Name Change: His original name was Oristolfo prior to being adopted by Kate.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Magic calls Kate "Katie".
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: His sense of smell and seeing something moving, such as a bouncy ball, often gets him distracted. However, this sometimes proves to be helpful, such as in New Friends where he gets distracted by a mushroom during the walk to find Robbie, tries to eat it, only to find a Magic Drop in it.
  • Badass Adorable: Of course, being a doggie, he has these moments whenever he is defending Kate from harm’s way.
  • Badass Pacifist: Just like his owner, Magic is almost never seen doing anything considered violent. If anything, he would just let the Guards do the bidding.
  • Best Friend: He is Kate's best friend.
  • Canine Companion: To Kate.
  • Dog Stereotype: Is the stereotypical German Shepherd protagonist.
  • Dogs Love Being Praised: Of course, being Kate’s faithful canine companion, it’s natural that he loves that.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He is a very lovable puppy, but will turn serious when evil from Eva’s gang arises.
  • Happily Adopted: By Kate and her family.
  • The Hero: Is one of the main protagonists and is the primary animal hero.
  • Like Brother and Sister: He looks up to Kate as if she were a Cool Big Sis, and Kate treats him like a little brother, taking care of him as such.
  • Loyal Animal Companion: To Kate.
  • Meaningful Rename: He changes his name from the lengthy name Oristolfo, which he found overwhelming, to Magic, connected to how he and Kate use magic to find pets to send to children they come across in the Big City.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Again, to Kate.
  • The Protagonist: Magic shares this role with Kate, being as equally important in the series as she is.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the Red Oni to Kate's Blue Oni.

    Princess Ava/Ami

Voiced by: Giulia Franzoso (IT), Prudence Alcott (Original EN), Julie-Ann Dean (US/UK), Delphine Chavier (FR), Julia Kołakowska (PL), Németh Borbála (HU)

Princess Ava is a Siamese cat who is the benevolent monarch of the Pocket Kingdom. She is one of the two known members of the Felis aulicus species. She is the twin sister of Eva, and is presumably the older twin.

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Princess Ava is loved by all her subjects, from the Royal Guards to practically everyone else in the kingdom. So many pets showed up at the Magic Fountain to witness her return. Well, almost all of them. Eva and her lackeys are the exceptions, mainly because of Eva's jealousy of her and her lackeys helping her try to take over.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: The Beauty to Mela's Brains and Balloon's Brawn, as she is the most beautiful of the main cat characters.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: She is often described as being a beautiful and pure cat.
  • Benevolent Mage Ruler: She rules over the Pocket Kingdom with kindness and love and is in possession of magic, but only uses this to activate the Pocketpedia and perform Friendship Ceremonies.
  • Big Good: She is the most valuable character in the series, being both the ruler of the Pocket Kingdom and of a rare breed that both sides sought out for.
  • Big "NO!":
    • Ava yells this right before she is teleported to the Big City.
    • In dubs other than English or Italian, she lets out this once the Pet Buster catches her in an Inescapable Net.
    • And again, once she finds out the Pet Buster set an almost impossible price for Kate to pay for in order to save her: one thousand golden coins.
  • Break the Cutie: She gets hit particularly the hardest out of all the characters.
    • Ava gets accidentally teleported to the Big City after the failed Friendship Ceremony for Magic, and she ends up having to live as a stray half of her time there. She ends up falling ill, hungry, and exhausted when trying to live on her own, though Wallace eventually rescues her and nurses her back to health.
    • Yes, it gets worse. When in the amusement park of the city, Magic was just about to meet Ava when the Pet Buster throws an Inescapable Net over her. She ends up being thrown in one of the Pet Buster's cages along with other strays he captured. And it gets even worse from there. After collecting one thousand golden coins, Kate was just about to win the auction for Ava when Eva intervenes, giving the Pet Buster all the details about her species, and Kate's coins disappear. Thus, Ava is kept by the Pet Buster for even longer thanks to her sister's meddling.
    • Episodes later, Ava talks with her sister through the Communication Shell, where Eva tells her that she was always evil to begin with and never loved her, and that she was too blind to see the malevolence of someone.
  • Cat Stereotype: Subverted for the Siamese stereotype. While she is the antithesis of mean, she is of royal blood and thus comes from a wealthy background.
  • Cats Are Magic: Ava is in possession of magical items: the Pocketpedia and the Friendship Heart (later the Ocean of Friendship).
  • Damsel in Distress: Throughout the plot, Ava is lost in the Big City, eventually captured by the Pet Buster. And she happens to be a princess.
  • Dub Name Change: Her original name was Ami, which translated to "friend" in French. In the English dub her name was changed to Ava because of localization.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Is the responsible sibling.
  • Friend to All Children
  • The High Queen: Is considered this by all Pocketville denizens, like she’s a goddess to them.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Ava has blue eyes, but contrasting with her sister's Icy Blue Eyes, she is kindhearted and caring, and even pure of heart as well according to Eva.
  • Meaningful Name: Her original name Ami means "friend" in French. It could also originate from "amicizia" or "amico", which mean "friendship" and "friend" in Italian.
  • Modest Royalty: Though there was a figure and official art of her where she wears a tiara and red cloak, in the show she wears nothing more than the collar with the Friendship Heart, and later the Ocean of Friendship.
  • Off-Model:
    • Sometimes appears with a different shape of face marking that only covers fur around her eyes and snout and not the cheeks or forehead, similar to Magic's.
    • She also sometimes wears a collar that has a completely different pattern from the usual one.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Has this reaction twice in The Friendship Ceremony, first when she sees Zull homing in on her, which causes her to jump on the platform Magic was on. Then as Zull breaks the Friendship Heart in two, Ava makes another of this reaction, right before she shields her eyes and is teleported.
    • In Friendship is a Treasure, she has this reaction along with a Big "NO!" when the Pet Buster tells Kate she'll be paying him one thousand coins to obtain her.
    • Makes this especially hilarious face in a flashback seen in Operation: Princess when a branch was about to fall on her.
  • Onee-sama: She often acts more of an older sister than a mother figure to many of her subjects.
  • Parental Abandonment: Ava and Eva's parents are never seen nor mentioned. For Ava being the monarch, either of her parents would have to be a predecessor of hers. Because of Ava now having the position of power and their absence, they are assumed to be deceased.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Compared to Eva, Ava is a kindhearted, cinnamon-pointed Siamese cat.
  • Princess Classic: Ava in general. She's a sweet, kind, adorable cat whose color scheme is mostly made up of warm colors like red and gold.
  • Princesses Rule: Ava, as she is the ruler of the Pocket Kingdom. There has been no mention of her parents and she is never referred to as "Queen Ava" possibly to not let some little girls yell out "God Save Us from the Queen!".note  In one episode, she is only referred to once as “Your Majesty” by Magic, which is how someone would address a king or queen instead of a prince or princess, and the Dalmatian in the first episode addresses Ava as "Your Royal Princess" (Princes/Princesses are traditionally addressed as "Your Royal Highness").
  • Queen Incognito: To the majority of strays and people in the Big City, she just looks like some random stray cat until she or someone else specifically tells them she's a princess.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the Blue Oni to her sister Eva's Red Oni.
  • Requisite Royal Regalia: In one of Ava's official artworks, she is shown to wear a red cape and a tiara.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: She is the "yang" sibling.
  • Spoiled Sweet: She comes from a royal background but she is very caring to every pet around her.
  • Team Mom: Ava is occasionally this to all the Royal Guards.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ava is the girly girl to her sister Eva’s tomboy. Ava is calm, elegant, and wears a golden collar with a heart-shaped jewel (either the Friendship Heart or the Ocean of Friendship), while Eva is brash, adventurous, speaks with a raspy voice, and wears a dull purple spiked collar in the first episode.

A street-smart schnauzer/poodle crossbreed who lives as a stray in the Big City. He eventually meets Ava, nurses her back to health, and aids her in surviving in the city.

  • Arch-Enemy: As he is a Big City stray, he has this dynamic with the Pet Buster. As this man is notorious amongst strays to try and capture them, mistreat them in his care, and sell them in auctions, it’s obvious even Wallace would have such a strong hatred for him. Even the Pet Buster thinks he isn’t worth capturing.
  • The Artful Dodger: He may be a stray but he enjoys the freedom that comes from that and can take care of himself.
  • Badass Adorable: He especially does his best to protect Ava. Whenever the Pet Buster tries to get close to her, Wallace growls and barks at him to try and intimidate him. Of course, this doesn’t always end well as the Pet Buster would harm him afterwards.
  • Dog Stereotype: Fits the mixed breed stereotype, not just by being male but living as a stray and knowing the streets of the city well.
  • Dub Name Change: Known as Spot in the Italian dub.
  • Expy: Wallace strongly resembles Tramp from Disney's Lady and the Tramp. He is a grey wire-haired mixed breed who lives the stray life in the Big City and takes care of a cat who came from a rich background, specifically that of royalty.
  • Homeless Hero: He is both a stray and is one of the protagonists.
  • Nice Guy: A street dog who rescues Ava and gets her back to health, and then guides her on how to survive in the city while at the same time doing his best to protect her.
  • Street Smart: He perhaps knows more about going around the Big City than any other stray, and can even deal with facing or evading the Pet Buster or with other stray dogs.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has purple eyes.


Royal Guards

    In general
From left to right: Danny, Balloon, William, and Mela

A quartet of two male dogs and two female cats whose task is to protect Princess Ava and Pocketville.

  • Action Pet: All the guards are dogs and cats that can and will kick tail.
  • Aerith and Bob: William, Danny, Mela...and Balloon.
  • Badass Adorable: They have cuteness like the rest of the citizens and they can sure put up a fight with Eva's gang.
  • Cats Hate Water: In Crest of a Wave, when Kate and the Royal Guards are about to go out into the sea to find Swimmy the dolphin, Balloon and Mela refuse because they’re cats.
    • However, it is averted in Sweet Dreams where Mela and Balloon get massages by goldfish while in one of the pools at Puppy Resort.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The male guards wear blue collars and the female guards wear pink collars.
  • Deuteragonist: All four share this role, compared to Kate and Magic's Protagonist.
  • Dress-Coded for Your Convenience: All of them wear specifically patterned collars without pocket-shaped name tags so they can be distinguished as Royal Guards, though animation errors will show them with these tags.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: Balloon and Mela are two female cats, while William and Danny are two male dogs.
  • Foil: William and Danny serve as foils to one another. Danny often thinks out loud or doesn't think much, he's quite clumsy, and acts in a similar manner to Magic because of his canine impulses (such as chasing balls and being drawn to food), while William is more composed, serious, and is graceful in every move he makes.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: All four members each make up one of the Four Temperaments.
    • William is Sanguine: being very moralistic, confident, sociable, and charming.
    • Danny is Choleric: stubborn, energetic, impulsive, and excitable.
    • Balloon is Melancholic: reserved, pessimistic, organized, and quiet.
    • Mela is Phlegmatic: thoughtful, passive, calm, and kind.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: Consists of two males and two females.
  • Girly Girl And Tomboy: Downplayed for Balloon and Mela. Balloon is slightly larger than Mela, speaks with a deeper voice, loves the outdoors and even having her own adventures outside, whereas Mela is smaller, speaks with a higher-pitched and squeakier voice, and is noticeably more cheerful.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: All the guards wear vibrant collars.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Don’t let their adorable appearances fool you; they will kick Eva and her lackeys in the tail when the situation calls for it.
  • Home Base: When not in search of what is needed for the Friendship Ceremony, the Royal Guards hang out at Pocketville Castle, where their princess lives.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Has this reaction off-screen in The Friendship Ceremony when the fountain is on the verge of exploding, possibly after realizing they failed to keep Zull at bay.
    • In Frisbee, after Otto shouts that there is an avalanche incoming, the Royal Guards make this reaction when about to be covered in snow.
    • Also has this reaction in New Friends when falling into the Pit Trap Zull and Gort dug up.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Mela and Balloon's collars.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: William and Danny wear blue collars while Mela and Balloon wear pink collars.
  • Praetorian Guard: To Princess Ava, as they guard her castle and her city.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • William is the level-headed and calm Blue Oni to Danny's energetic and scatterbrained Red Oni.
    • To a much smaller degree, Mela is the cheerful Red Oni to Balloon's aloof Blue Oni.
  • Undying Loyalty: They are very loyal to their princess, even if she is away.

William is a Golden Retriever who is the de facto leader of the Pocketville Royal Guards. He is very protective of the citizens of Pocketville, and especially Ava.

  • The Ace: He's the leader of the Royal Guards, helped keep a half of the Friendship Heart safe from Eva, outsmarted Eva and her lackeys in situations, looked for Magic Drops, and willingly helped in the effort to bring Ava back. Not to mention many pets look up to him.
  • The Leader: He is considered the leader of the Guards, being the most level-headed of the quartet.
  • Spock Speak: He always speaks with such precision. He does use figures of speech on occasion, however.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: William can come off as being quite firm and no-nonsense, but he would also show a warmer side once one gets to know him.
  • Workaholic: He seems to take pride in being so devoted to being a Royal Guard to the point that he would do absolutely anything for Ava. He would also not give up in any quest he takes part in.

Danny is an English Mastiff who is one of the Royal Guards. He is a little slow in the head and doesn't often think before he speaks, but he is very good-natured.

  • Afraid of Doctors: In White as a Ghost, Danny says that he is uncomfortable being around doctors, even if he isn’t there to see one.
  • Afraid of Needles: Is not just afraid of seeing the doctor but hates even the sight of seeing a needle.
  • Big Eater: Danny loves food so much, he is said to eat eight times a day.
  • The Big Guy: Of the Royal Guards.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's the Royal Guard that runs into trouble the most, whether it would be slipping and falling while trying to skate on ice, having a flowerpot fall on his head, or tripping down stairs.
  • Cowardly Lion: Although he gets quite scaredy at times, he has faced his fears several times.
    • In Finally Free, it turns out Danny hasn't finished his training due to his anxiety over the Tibetan Bridge trial. As Kate and her friends visit Steel Wool at his training grounds and finish going through training to face the Pet Buster, Danny finally completes the trial.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown fur, brown eyes.
  • The Ditz: He's the most absent-minded of the Guards.
  • Dog Stereotype: Averted with the Angry Guard Dog Mastiff stereotype. He's in fact the goofiest and most cowardly of the Guards who's also a Big Eater.
  • The Drag-Along: He is the Royal Guard that the other three end up dragging along when helping Kate and Magic on finding a Magic Drop or a Chosen Pet, and is often hesitant to go to certain places such as Doctor Copper's office and the Ever Grey Swamp. He eventually gets the job of watching over the castle while the others are away in Heads Up, though he still accompanies the other Guards at times.
  • Dub Name Change: Original name was Ciro, but was changed to Danny in the English dub.
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Thanks to his lisp, the way he pronounces Rs in both US and UK dubs sound more like a W.
  • Lovable Coward: Sure, Danny may be skittish around Dr. Copper's office or reluctant to go to some dark and treacherous places like the Bottomless Cave, but that doesn't make him any less loved than the other three guards.
  • Obsessed with Food: Oh, this dog absolutely loves to eat. In Food for Thought, he mentions how he would eat two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, and two snacks over the course of one day, and swoons over how delicious chocolate smells, even if it's just Goldie's vegetable mix tricking him.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Is mainly present to goof-off, though he will get serious when the situation calls for it.
  • The So-Called Coward: Danny may seem like the cowardly member of the Royal Guards at first but when someone threatens his friends he won't hesitate to help put up a fight.
  • Speech Impediment: In the official US and UK dubs, he speaks with a lisp. It doesn't hinder his pronunciation that much, however.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is afraid of visiting the doctor as mentioned in White as a Ghost, especially when it comes to syringes.

Mela is a Calico cat and one of the four Royal Guards. She is kind, cheerful, and always willing to lend a paw.

  • Action Girl: This is expected for someone who’s a Royal Guard such as her.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: The Brains to Ava's Beauty and Balloon's Brawn, because she is often a deep thinker.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her name means "apple" in Italian.
  • Cat Stereotype: Fits one of the two Calico stereotypes: being very kind with a touch of spunk.
  • Child-Like Voice: Speaks with a squeaky, child-like voice. Exaggerated in the second half of the UK dub.
  • The Cutie: She’s the most adorable of the Guards, speaking with a Child-Like Voice and being The Heart of the group.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Balloon.
  • Nice Girl: She is very much the nicest of the Royal Guard quartet. She has also shown to be the friendliest to Kate when she first arrives in Pocketville, besides Danny.
  • The Heart: She is the most openly kind of the Guards and has shown to care about others… except for Eva and her gang.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the UK dub, Mela’s voice is higher pitched in the second half of the series than in the first.

Balloon is a mixed breed tabby cat who is one of the four Royal Guards. She is quiet, thoughtful, and helpful to the other Guards, though she may sometimes come off as aloof.

  • Action Girl: Since she is female and a Royal Guard, yep, she's one of them.
  • Aloof Ally: She comes across as this on occasion.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: The Brawn to Ava's Beauty and Mela's Brains, as she appears to be the largest of the trio, and the strongest as well.
  • Cat Stereotype: Fits the stereotype of big longhaired cats (such as the Maine Coon and Norwegian Forest cat). She has more of a laidback personality compared to the other three Royal Guards and has significant intelligence.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She seems to be a bit cold at first, being slightly suspicious about Kate, but she later warms up to her as she gets to know her.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Mela.
  • The Lancer: Balloon seems to be this to William.
  • Meaningful Name: It's completely ambiguous on why Balloon is named that, but it could be because of her roundish features and occasional airiness.
  • She's a Man in Japan: In the first five episodes of the original English dub, Balloon was male. In the remaining episodes, however, Balloon was changed to female. However, in most other dubs including the later US and UK dubs, Balloon is female in all episodes.
  • The Smart Girl: She's shown to be the cleverest of the Guards, despite Evershell stating that William is.

    Winged Guards/Golden Eagles

A group of bald eagles who serve as aerial scouts of the Guards.


Pocket Kingdom

    Eva's gang 
A quartet of two dogs, a crow, and a cat whose main task is to wreak havoc across the Pocket Kingdom and claim Kate's half of the Friendship Heart.
  • Aerith and Bob: Krakia, Zull, Gort...and Eva.
  • Badass Adorable: They're cute for sure and they're quite the toughies.
  • Dark Is Evil: All of them have color schemes consisting of black, grey, and various dark/dull colors.
  • Dress-Coded for Your Convenience: All wear spiked collars so you'll know they're the bad guys.
  • Female Feline, Male Mutt: Zull and Gort are a duo of male dogs while Eva is the female cat.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: This group was this when Krakia became part of it until her eventual disappearance.
  • Good Colors, Evil Colors: All their collars have dull shades of colors.
  • Home Base: Theirs is the Ever Grey Swamp, specifically in the hollow of a tree.
  • Leitmotif: Whenever they show up, expect the background music to turn to a minor key, with ominous woodwinds.
  • Quaking with Fear: Eva's three lackeys tend to shiver and tremble when afraid, especially when about to meet with Durillia in her cave or finding the Valley of No One.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • Eva is the Blue Oni to Zull and Gort's Red Oni, though she is also the hotheaded Red Oni to Krakia's calmer Blue Oni.
    • Krakia is also the Blue Oni to Zull and Gort's Red Oni.
  • Spikes of Villainy: All of them wear spiked collars. Eva, however, drops hers for a string containing a half of the Friendship Heart by the second episode.
  • Terrible Trio: Eva and her lackeys Zull and Gort until Krakia joins them...and then disappears.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Appearance-wise, Krakia is the girly girl to Eva's tomboy. Eva wears a dull purple spiked collar, while Krakia wears a pink one and also wears a pink ribbon on her head.

Eva is a malevolent seal-point Siamese cat who is the main antagonist of the series. She is Princess Ava's twin sister.

  • 0% Approval Rating: Eva is so vile not even her lackeys seem to like her.
  • Action Girl: Eva will never hesitate to kick tail, no matter the situation, though she prefers to let her dog lackeys do the work.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Goes great lengths to her immorality just so she can achieve so much ambition.
  • Angry Animalistic Growl: She significantly makes more animalistic noises than other cat characters of the show, including a growl that actually sounds much more like a canine’s than that of a feline’s. She growls whenever she gets very ticked off.
  • Ax-Crazy: Eva's pretty insane as the antagonist. She sometimes acts feral, she hates her allies, and would absolutely go crazy whenever the Friendship Heart's half she has gets touched by somebody else.
  • Bad Boss: Eva is so vile to her lackeys that she has even threatened to hurt them if they don't stop with their nonsense.
  • Badbutt: Although Eva is a tough and very vile leader of her gang, the series being for children obviously limits her from going to far than to just have Zull and Gort fight with Kate and her friends with herself sometimes entering in it, competing in challenges to obtain a Magic Drop or allowing a Chosen Pet to go on, and… attempting murder by dropping a branch on Ava.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Never grab her half of the Friendship Heart. Even if you're an ally.
    • Every time her plans fail thanks to Zull and Gort being either stupid or lazy, it aggravates her so much.
  • Big Bad / Big Bad Duumvirate: The main antagonist of the series herself, she vows to become queen of the Pocket Kingdom once she takes the Friendship Heart and make sure Ava doesn't return. Eventually becomes one of two once the Pet Buster is introduced.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: "I didn't become evil, I've always been that way!"
  • Cat Stereotype: Fits the mean Siamese stereotype.
  • Catchphrase / Catchphrase Insult:
    • "You have something which/that belongs to me!"
    • "You fools!"
      • Or "I'm surrounded by fools!"
    • Sometimes she would call her lackeys "numbskulls".
  • Cats Are Lazy: A downplayed example. While Eva can and will do anything in any plan she and her lackeys home up with, she prefers to let Zull, Gort, and Krakia do all the work for her while she watches it all be carried out.
  • Cats Are Mean: Eva isn't just mean, she's a downright cruel feline. She finds amusement in sabotaging anything, whether it would be towards Kate and her friends or anyone else in Pocketville, even to the point where someone gets hurt such as Sketch or even her own sister, Ava.
  • Dark Is Evil: Eva has a dark color scheme, with dark gray colorpoint markings.
  • Death Glare: Often gives these to Zull and Gort to show that she means serious business or purely just to intimate them.
  • Doom Magnet: Every time Eva sets her plans in motion, something always gets in the way. Usually the protagonists are involved.
  • Dub Name Change: Eva's original name was Ima.
  • Evil Brit: Has a raspy British accent in both US and UK dubs.
  • Evil Counterpart: What she wants to be to her sister Ava. While Ava reigns with kindness and treats her subjects as equals, Eva wants to rule with an iron paw and abuse the power of the Friendship Heart she longs for.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Eva's antagonistic traits are rather exaggerated.
  • Evil Laugh: She sometimes guffaws mockingly whenever she sees the protagonists do something stupid or if they successfully get in her trap.
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: Speaks with a raspy, intimidating voice.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Implied. This is what Ava believes she has undergone prior to the events of the series. Eva apparently disagrees, however.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Eva ends up as the Pet Buster's new prisoner after she and Ava switched places in the final episode.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Is the foolish sibling. She wouldn't be a good monarch now would she?
  • For the Evulz: Due to the characters' vague backstories and possibly some lazy writing, Eva's schemes were all just for evil's sake. However, some have speculated that she just wants attention just as much as her monarch sister.
  • Gonk: Downplayed as she's not that hideous, though compared to other feline characters, she seems to frequently put on ugly faces with a more exaggerated furrow than the other characters', including her sister Ava when she's unhappy, and by default always have that same furrow on her face no matter her mood, just to show that she's the bad kitty. The beauty mark sure doesn't help, either. She strays more into Ugly Cute territory though.
  • Goth: Just look at her. She has dark grey colorpoint markings and wears a collar adorned with spikes.
  • Green and Mean: In the pilot, she wears a green collar as opposed to the purple one she wore in the first episode of the final show.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She is driven by extreme envy for her sister that she tries to steal the Friendship Heart and become the queen of the kingdom instead.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: In the second half of the series, she strikes a deal with the Pet Buster to keep her sister Ava hostage and in return, send him all the pets he wants. However, in the final episode, as she herself tries to get the completed Friendship Heart while Zull and Gort keep the Royal Guards at bay, she ends up being the Pet Buster’s prisoner herself, in Ava’s place.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: She has light blue eyes, which enhances her intimidating Death Glare.
  • Incoming Ham:
    • "Oh, dear sister, it's time for a change around here."
    • Also, "How nauseating, how…yuck! Who does she think she is?!"
  • Irrational Hatred: Aside from the supposed envy she has for her sister, and because she is said to have "always been" evil, there really isn't any actual reason for her hatred towards anyone.
  • It's All About Me: Oh boy, Eva is one selfish cat. Aside from her jealousy towards her sister because of her title and position and not caring as much if anyone is in danger, Eva thinks very highly of herself and believes nobody is above her. She even likes the compliments Zull and Gort give her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Eva tries to prove to Ava that she was never moral, and that she's not just jealous. It is unclear who is correct.
  • Lack of Empathy: Good God is this feline devoid of empathy. When pets fall into traps, she doesn't give a crap about them and just leave them there, even if it is her own sister.
  • Large Ham: Eva's pretty exaggerated for a villain. She's very hateful, plus she absolutely loves to be the bad girl.
  • The Leader: She is the leader of her gang.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Eva is exceptionally good at manipulating others to do her own bidding, especially Zull and Gort.
    • In The Search, she plays with the fact of the snow leopard being lonely from having to guard the Never Alone flower all by himself and has Gort disguise himself as another snow leopard to distract him.
    • She makes a pact with the Pet Buster as a way to keep Ava further away from returning home, by letting him hold Ava hostage and promises to him that in return he’ll have all the pets he wants. Essentially, she was trying to use the Pet Buster as some sort of barrier between the two of them so she can get through with her plan to take the Friendship Heart, though she doesn’t exactly trust him.
  • Meaningful Name: Her localized English name, though a female given name, sounds like the word "evil". Also, her original name Ima is backwards for Ami (meaning "friend"), and since anything reversed is usually thought of as the "opposite", this could mean that she represents enemies and broken friendships.
  • Obviously Evil: She is a dark-colored Siamese cat who initially wears a spiked collar, speaks with a raspy British accent in the US and UK dubs, and not to mention she cackles sometimes. Why else wouldn't she be malevolent?
  • Only Sane Woman: She thinks she is this whenever all her lackeys, including Krakia, are doing something stupid or just fighting with each other.
  • Parental Abandonment: Ava and Eva's parents are never seen nor mentioned. Because of her sister now having the position of power and their absence, they are assumed to be deceased.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In In the Cove of the Cat, Eva disguises herself as a tiger cub by using mud to make stripes on her fur to try and lure one of the bloodhounds into the Ever Grey Swamp. It's obvious it isn't hiding any of her Siamese features…
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Compared to Ava, Eva is a cruel, slate-pointed Siamese cat.
  • Reflective Eyes:
    • In A Big Responsibility, when looking at Toby, the image of this sheepdog reflects in Eva's eyes.
    • In Don't Be Afraid, Eva's eyes reflect the question mark shown in her half of the Friendship Heart when she looks at it.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • Is the Red Oni to her sister Ava's Blue Oni.
    • She is the Blue Oni to Zull and Gort's Red Oni, but is the Red Oni to Krakia's Blue Oni.
  • Royal Brat: Eva is the monarch's sister, and she happens to act very bratty sometimes.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Ima is backwards for Ami.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: She is the "yin" sibling.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Eva sometimes points this out whenever her lackeys won't do what they're told or are just being stupid.
    "I'm surrounded by fools!"
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl:
    • Is the tomboy to her sister Ava's girly girl. Eva is brash, speaks with a raspy voice, isn't afraid to get dirty, and initially wears a dull-colored spiked collar, whereas her sister is much more regal and polite, and wears a gold collar with a jewel.
    • Eva is also the tomboy to Krakia's girly girl, but more in terms of appearance. Eva wears a dull purple spiked collar, while Krakia wears a pink one and also wears a pink ribbon on her head.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Being the tough and very malevolent twin, Eva has these.
  • Verbal Tic: Eva would make animalistic noises such as meowing or canine growling when she speaks.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When the protagonists succeed in keeping their half safe, Eva literally goes crazy with compulsory greed.
  • Villainous Princess: She's Ava's sister, thus making her a princess as well, and she's quite the villain.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: Eva despises the idea of love, and also says that Ava's benevolence makes her blind to see evil in others.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She would go as far as attempting to drown Sketch just to get her paws on the other piece of the Friendship Heart.
  • You Fool!: Her signature catchphrase.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Inverted. She is the envious Evil Twin, while her sister Ava (who is obviously the elder twin as she is the monarch) is benevolent and kind.

    Zull and Gort

Voiced by:
Zull: Giorgio Bonino (IT), Richard Epcar (Original EN), Dave Fennoy (US), Krzysztof Szczerbiński (PL), Schneider Zoltán (HU)
Gort: Claudio Moneta (IT), Aaron Albertus (Original EN), Janusz Wituch (PL), Sótonyi Gábor (HU)

Zull and Gort are an unintelligent Rottweiler and pit bull (respectively) duo who are Eva's two underlings. They often get into a lot of mishaps while carrying out Eva's plans, much to their leader's dismay.

  • Angry Animalistic Growl: They growl especially whenever they are putting up a fight or pursuing someone.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Being dogs, they are also no stranger to being distracted in the blink of an eye. In Frisbee, Kate throws a titular object, which proved to attract the attention of other dogs earlier, including Chosen Pet Otto, and the pair immediately catch sight of it and chase it down.
Eva: Foiled by a dumb frisbee!
  • Berserk Button: Never call them poodles. Or Cocker Spaniels.
  • Beware of Vicious Dog: They’re both big, strong, but incredibly unintelligent dogs who cause nothing but trouble in Pocketville.
  • The Bully: They often ridicule or scare off other pets if they try to get in their way.
  • Bumbling Henchmen Duo: They are a duo of two incompetent underlings who often screw up with Eva's plans.
  • Butt-Monkey: In every episode they're always seen getting themselves hurt in some way, usually either getting into fights with the Royal Guards or fighting with each other. They can't seem to catch a break.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Both of them tend to get extremely scatterbrained to the point where they always screw up with Eva's plans.
  • Co-Dragons: Zull and Gort both share the role as being Eva's primary lackeys, along with Krakia.
  • Dirty Coward: Sometimes they would act cowardly, especially when the Royal Guards and Winged Guards get involved. One time, in Don't Be Afraid when going to grab Camo, they immediately bark at and chase after the tabby after Eva tells them to, but when the Winged Guards swoop over and spot them, they immediately run away while yelping at the same time like scared puppies. In Patience, when going to meet Durillia, and in Kate's Birthday, when reaching the Valley of No-One, they quiver at the thought of meeting the crocodile and hearing her echoing growls in the former, and at the thought of being in that area in the latter. Eva was not fazed by either, though she would get annoyed by their cowardice.
  • Dog Stereotype: Zull and Gort are dogs from breeds thought of as dangerous and tough.
  • Evil Brit: Both speak with English accents in the UK dub.
  • Fake Defector: In Nearly!, Zull pretends to betray Eva and her gang by feigning siding with Kate's group to try and obtain a hair from Magic's pelt. He eventually succeeds.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Both of them usually stick together, though they often get into quarrels with each other. In "Good Manners (Part 2)", they are both infatuated by a female Rottweiler and pit bull.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Gort has very pale blue eyes and is one of three secondary antagonists.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • During the challenge to become a Royal Guard in Heads Up, Zull shoves a husky competitor out of the way.
  • Laughably Evil: Both of them often get caught into hilarious situations while carrying out Eva's plan, especially when getting stuck.
    • Either of them are often seen running into things, be it a wall in Heads Up or into each other.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise:
    • Both disguise as Dalmatians in Going Home, which only involves caking themselves in mud. However, it does not hide their indicative markings and thus a pet comes up to them, thinking that it's Zull and Gort, but when told they are just a pair of Dalmatians (in an intimidating way), he immediately runs off in fear.
    • Gort disguises as a snow leopard in The Search, with snow to make his fur white and two twigs to resemble the two black stripes on a leopard's face. It doesn't hide that he still has the shape of a dog though.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • In Nearly!, when a wooden beam was about to ram into Kate from atop a building in Pocketville, Zull pushes Kate out of the way so she won't get hurt.
    • In White Paw, Zull and Gort save Mela from falling into the giant hole the tree overhung by keeping the tree steady enough for her to climb down safely.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: They often bring comedy to the table with their foolish antics while they go through with whatever scheme their boss Eva is cooking up.
  • Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey: Eva is a devious Siamese cat who is always scheming to take her sister's Friendship Heart, while Zull and Gort, her lackeys, are a pair of dogs from stereotypical tough breeds, but they often mess up or end up being goofy.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Both of them would go great lengths to even put Kate in harm’s way, including when Zull knocked Kate and Magic out of the way and attempted to steal the Royal Collar.

A highly intelligent crow who is one of Eva's lackeys. She serves as the scout for Eva's gang.

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: After the episode, "The Last Piece", Krakia is no longer seen, nor mentioned by anyone.
  • Co-Dragons: With Zull and Gort until her eventual disappearance.
  • Clever Crows: She is exceptionally smart compared to Zull and Gort but uses her intelligence for misdeeds.
  • Creepy Crows: Krakia is a crow and she happens to be a supporting antagonist.
  • Evil Brit: Has a raspy British accent in both US and UK dubs.
  • Feather Fingers: Often carries items with her wings.
  • Feathered Fiend: She is an avian antagonist.
  • Giggling Villain: Her chuckling often sounds like a crow’s chatter.
  • Number Two: Krakia is often this to Eva.
  • The Trickster: Loves playing tricks on anyone, whether it would be on the protagonists or even her fellow dog lackeys.


Voiced by: Katie Leigh (Original EN), Lorraine Parsloe (US/UK), Barbinek Péter (HU)

A sinister crocodile who is one of the two wisest creatures in all of the Pocket Kingdom.

  • Evil Brit: Like the other antagonists, she too speaks with a menacing British accent.
  • Evil Counterpart: She's a wise creature in the Pocket Kingdom, but an evil counterpart to the benevolent Evershell.
  • Gender Flip: To Evershell.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Her roars can even be heard from the entrance, which frighten Zull, Gort, and even Krakia.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: A very cunning and devious crocodile she is. Even Zull and Gort were hesitant to meet her.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Wears a spiked collar.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: She often rolls out the R when she speaks, almost like the growl of a crocodile.

Big City

    The Pet Buster

Voiced by: Melis Gábor (HU)

A crazy old man who runs an abusive pet shelter. He made an alliance with Eva to send him as many Pocketville denizens as he wants. He eventually gets arrested after breaking into Kate's house but is then bailed out in the final episode.

  • Ax-Crazy: Just look at his intents and you won't be surprised.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: The Pet Buster neglects all his strays that he captures, including Ava. When training them, he uses a whip with this, and whenever Wallace barks and growls at him to try and steer him away from Ava, he punches him away, the first time leaving him seriously injured.
  • Badbutt: Downplayed due to his role. Although he is known for mistreating strays in his care by intimidating them, letting them undergo serious training while he uses a whip, and sometimes even hurting them, he doesn’t too anything even more serious than that.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: He becomes an even bigger threat to Pocketville, even more so than Eva. In the final episode he turns on Eva when he captures her.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Brown hair, brown eyes.
  • Evil Brit: Speaks with a mean Cockney accent.
  • Evil Laugh: Sometimes pulls these off at Ava or sometimes Kate.
  • Evil Old Folks: He may be looking like a regular old man but he has some malicious intents and plans on helping Eva wreak havoc on Pocketville.
  • Gonk: Man is he hideous. Perhaps the ugliest-designed adult human character in the show.
  • Guttural Growler: He speaks with a very low, raspy voice, even managing to sound even more menacing than Eva.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • When an old lady and her dog pass by the Pet Buster, her dog stops to growl at him. The Pet Buster growls back at it, which frightens the dog and causes the old lady to move away from him, taking her dog with her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Although Eva is an already vile villain, he is considered this since he is a new, bigger threat to Pocketville. Because of how he treats animals, he may as well be the cruelest, most evil and dangerous antagonist of the series. He even betrays Eva in the final episode.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Only wears that specific outfit in every episode he appears in.
  • Loners Are Freaks: He is very anti-social and almost never gets in contact with anyone, and he also happens to be a creepy and devious old man.
  • Meaningful Name: He is a man… who figuratively busts pets.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Say his name and the strays of the Big City cower in fear.
  • Obviously Evil: Take a look at his ragged appearance and the way he keeps his shelter. He’s obviously a bad guy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He doesn't have an actual name that's confirmed; he's only known as the Pet Buster, even by Kate. Guess he's very private too.
  • Scratchy-Voiced Senior: He’s an old man who speaks with a gruff voice.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: He gets rich from all those auctions he sells his pets at yet he's incredibly careless, and he often breaks the law. Not to mention that the implication on why he got bailed out is because of his wealth.
  • Senior Creep: He's an old man whom pets are absolutely afraid of.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: Of course, being a grouchy and gritty old man character, kids wouldn't want to get a doll of him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He gets bailed out in the next-to-last episode but we never learn why. It could be because of all the money he earned from auctions but it was never confirmed.

Pocket Kingdom

    In general 
  • Civilized Animal: The denizens of the Pocket Kingdom all do human-like things.
  • Cute Kitten: All the cats are this.
  • Four Fingered Hand: Whenever many of them extend a paw out or grab something, their paw takes the likeness of a four-fingered hand.
  • Fun Size: Most of if not all Pocket Kingdom inhabitants are fairly small and even small enough to be picked up. Even the ponies are all, well, the size of a pony. Even dogs who are supposed to be of large breeds are roughly the same size as dogs of smaller breeds and cats, including William and Danny when standing next to Mela and Balloon.
  • Happily Adopted: What the Chosen Pets all get.
  • Precious Puppies: All the puppies qualify.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Pretty obvious by this point.

Chosen Pets


Voiced by: Federico Zanandrea (IT), Lorraine Parsloe (US/UK), Pekár Adrienn (HU)

A Dalmatian who is the first known Chosen Pet of the show. She/he was sent to a girl named Caroline.

  • Advertised Extra: She was featured in a lot of merchandise and artwork yet she has an extremely minor role, let alone disappear after the first episode.
  • All in the Manual: Her name is never mentioned in the show but in merchandise and especially in a commercial for the figurines which supposedly aired in the United States, it is said to be Dot.
  • Ambiguous Gender: It really depends on what dub you're watching, but with the lack of masculine or feminine features (Dot has eyelashes, though a large portion of male characters in this show have them), it's pretty much unknown what Dot's official gender is. Dot's a pretty feminine name, however.
  • Flat Character: There isn't much to her character aside from being cheerful and eager to meeting a new friend.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Has light blue eyes and is a fun-loving little puppy.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is Dot (another word for "spot" or "mark") and she's covered in spots; the primary characteristic of a Dalmatian.
  • No Name Given: She isn't referred to by her name in the show, only by her breed. Her name is only used in merchandise.
  • She's a Man in Japan: In the original English dub and select other dubs, Dot is male. In the official US and UK dubs as well as select other ones, Dot is female.

A Yorkshire terrier who was the former choreographer of the Pocketville Theatre. She is chosen for Daniel, a young actor at the Big City school who struggles with stage fright.

  • All in the Manual: Depending on which release you're looking at, her name according to their respective collector's lists is either Phoebe (Flair, released in North American countries and the UK) or Amleto (Giochi Preziosi, released in the UK, Italy, and other European countries), indicating that Amleto must be her name in dubs where she's a male. Her name is not mentioned anywhere in the show.

  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Is noticeably feminine in appearance and wears a lilac collar with lace and a ribbon on her head.
  • Meaningful Name: This pet worked as choreographer for the Pocketville Theatre, and although unnamed in the show, has been given the name "Amleto", the name of a Shakespearean character, in the Giochi Preziosi release.
  • No Name Given: At least, in the show. In merchandise her name is given.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Strangely enough, despite having feminine features like the bow tied to a strand of fur on her head and her ruffled collar, she is male in other dubs including the Italian dub. This may explain why in Europe the dog's name is Amleto rather than Phoebe.
  • Shout-Out: Amleto is the Italian version of Hamlet, and this dog worked for the theatre.

  • Dog Stereotype: Being a husky, Juno is very active and loves to go on adventures.

A young chick who is the Chosen Pet for another of Kate's classmates, Lillia, who was stingy with her coloring materials and refuses to share with her classmate. She shows her that sharing with others is a kind act.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Due to them being identical to other chicks in the gift shop, the lack of Tertiary Sexual Characteristics such as eyelashes, and having a high-pitched voice in the English dub but a more masculine voice in the Italian dub, it is confusing over what gender Ribbon is. Even the other characters don’t refer to Ribbon by any pronouns.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Pio is the Italian onomatopoeia for a chick’s cheep.

Voiced by: Wayne Forester (US/UK)

A bear who is the owner of the Bear Inn.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In merchandise he has darker fur and a light brown underside which matches the fur on his muzzle, has orange eyes, and wears a green collar. In the show, his fur is a much lighter color though his muzzle remains lighter, wears a bib (resembling an apron) in place of his collar, and has green eyes.
  • All in the Manual: His name is never mentioned in the show, but in merchandise it is said to be Baldo.
  • Beary Friendly: He is a friendly bear who welcomes all who come to eat at his inn.
  • Big Shadow, Little Creature: In The Unexpected Guest, Kate enters the Bear Inn and is startled when seeing the shadow of what seemed like a gigantic and menacing bear. However, she then sees the bear himself, who turns out to be much smaller, friendly, but a little bashful at the same time.

    Snow leopard

Voiced by: Unknown

An unnamed snow leopard who guarded the Never Alone Flower in the Land of Eternal Snow.

  • Badass Adorable: He’s adorable just like the other Pocket Kingdom denizens and is an amazing fighter.
  • Large Ham: Specifically in the US/UK English dubs, where his growling noises and lines are pretty overdone compared to majority of characters in these dubs.
  • MacGuffin Guardian: He guards the Never Alone Flower, though Eva and her gang successfully steal it because he got distracted by a disguised Gort.
  • No Name Given: He doesn't have a known name and is only referred to as the snow leopard.
  • Panthera Awesome: He is a snow leopard who does an extraordinarily great job at protecting the Never Alone Flower from intruders (though eventually Eva finds a way around this) and has these awesome scenes of keeping Zull, Gort, and especially Krakia at bay.


A seal who is the captain of their boat that Kate and her friends travel on to get to Puppy Key.

  • All in the Manual: Given the name Stella in the Giochi Preziosi release of figurines.
  • Ambiguous Gender: No pronouns have been given for this seal, and even their appearance is rather androgynous, despite the deep voice.

    Steel Wool
He may seem like a cute lamb but he is one tough guy.

Voiced by: Unknown

A lamb who trains animals to become Royal Guards.

  • Animal Gender-Bender: Subverted. He’s a ram who lacks horns, although he is specifically said to be a lamb, despite his deep voice.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Nobody knows whether or not Steel Wool is an alias that he takes or his actual name. The former seems more likely.
  • The Mentor: He is a mentor to all the Royal Guards and has even overseen Danny’s completion of his training.
  • Punny Name: His name refers to the fact he may look like a cute sheep yet he's tough as steel. Steel wool in real life are bundles of steel filaments used as abrasives.
  • Stern Teacher: Justified, as he is a no-nonsense mentor who makes sure his apprentices go through with their training to become Royal Guards.
  • Sweet Sheep: Averted; this is what Kate initially thought he was until the Royal Guards tell him that he’s actually much tougher than she thinks.
  • Toyless Toyline Character: This is pretty much a trend in the more minor characters of this show. Though Steel Wool would probably make a good figurine.
