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


The Vitality 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 Vitality Popcat hides in a green pot with a light green pattern of upward dripping symbols at the bottom of the pot, as well as white teardrop shapes and mint circles in the space between and above. In the middle of the pot is its Heartless emblem. After becoming active, the Vitality Popcat will keep the pot attached to its upper body as it runs around with its head, torso, and legs exposed.


Vitality 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.

Vitality 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. If low on health, it is recommended to defeat Vitality Popcats first due to their guaranteed HP drops.
