Rooney (マイク, Maiku?) is a cranky kangaroo villager in New Leaf. Along with Walt, he is one of the first male kangaroos in the series. The name Rooney is a play on the ending of his species English name, "kangaroo". His Japanese name, "Mike", may be a reference to the boxer Mike Tyson (as featured in Nintendo's Punch Out).
His catchphrase "Punches" is in reference to the "boxing" nature in which kangaroo jacks fight, and possibly the resulting Australian icon - "the boxing kangaroo".
Rooney is a blue male kangaroo with red-brown hair and green eyes. He has black feet with three white claws on his three toes, and black and red hands/gloves. His chest, under his tail and the inside of his ears are bright yellow. The outside of his ears are light brown. He has eyebrows that are at an angle, making him look angry or annoyed, which matches his personality.
