Balloon is a gray and white tabby crossbreed kitten (it is unknown what the crossbreed is exactly) and a member of the Pocketville Royal Guards.
She is voiced by Haviland Stillwell in English and by Tania De Domenico in Italian.
Balloon has short ears and a bushy tail. Her fur is long and gray with darker gray tabby stripes, a white muzzle, chest, and paws, and golden eyes. She wears a pink Royal Guard collar with fuchsia hearts on it.
Balloon is a cunning and agile cat. She is also clever and uses her intelligence to find Magic Drops quite often. She is the most distrusting of the guards. At first, she was hesitant to trust Kate when she first arrived in Pocketville, but they became good friends. She's the most mysterious and solitary of the group, but she has been known to be very friendly, helpful, and full of life. She loves to go out on her own and have adventures exploring the Pocket Kingdom.
- Balloon bears a striking resemblance to Moonflower, a character from the Warriors book series.
- In official artwork at the official Puppy in My Pocket Facebook page, Balloon is implied to have a fondness for cherries.
