The Focus Popcat is an Emblem Heartless that appears in Kingdom Hearts III.


The Focus Popcat appears as a slim feline-like Heartless with black fur and beige skin that shows in its face and ears. Its face contains a pair of beady yellow eyes and a zig-zagged mouth which extends upward in the middle. On its sharply curled tail is a set of orange stripes, the same color which is also seen on its stub feet and the tips of its ears.

When inactive, the Focus Popcat hides in a crimson pot an orange zig-zag pattern that protrudes downwards into symbols that appear as a fusion between diamonds and an upside down triangle, with the interior of the diamond being colored white. Additional orange diamond shapes extend upward from the bottom of the pot. In the middle of the pot is its Heartless emblem. After becoming active, the Focus Popcat will keep the pot attached to its upper body as it runs around with its head, torso, and legs exposed.


Focus Popcats are unthreatening on their own, and as such they tend to appear in groups. They will hide in their pots to attempt to blend in with the background, but their pots are distinctive and they're easily seen when they peek their eyes from under the pot. When close enough, they will jump and slash at Sora, but this attack is slow and easily dodged.

Focus Popcats have low defense and health, and the group can easily be defeated before they can finish their first attack by using a couple casts of Thunder or Aero magic. Focus Popcats will always drop Focus prizes, making it viable to use shotlocks against the group of Popcats as the Focus gauge can be sufficiently recharged.
