Uh-huh! That's right! We're sphere hunters.

The Kinderguardians introducing themselves to the Gullwings.

The Kinderguardians first meet the Gullwings in Zanarkand during Chapter 1, where the trio hunts for the "prize".

The Kinderguardians are later granted with various items, but no spheres. The Gullwings continue deeper, and exploited Isaaru's plan to make Zanarkand Ruins into a tourist attraction. In Chapter 2, should the sphere containing Vegnagun's records be given to New Yevon, the Kinderguardians will grant players the Cat's Bell accessory in Bevelle. In Chapter 3, they also give the Blood of the Beast Garment Grid if met in the Bevelle Underground and choose "Go for it" when asked whether they should tell the Youth League about the place or not.

In Chapter 5, there seems to be dozens of members and are said to have become something like a kindercorps by Maroda. The Kinderguardians find an entrance to a labyrinth dungeon in Bevelle, Via Infinito. The trio only enters the Cloister 0 before leaving the labyrinth.

The Kinderguardians also appear in the fiend tale of Behemoth.

In Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission, the Kinderguardians are known to guard the chocobos along with Clasko.

In Japanese, Hana is voiced by Akeno Watanabe (the voice of Shinra) and Taro is voiced by Megumi Toyoguchi (the voice of Paine).[1] In English Hana is voiced by Olivia Hack and Taro is voiced by Kath Soucie.


The name Kinderguardians refers to the German word "Kindergarten", meaning "playground for kids", referring to the fact that all of the Kinderguardians' members are children. It also references Pacce's previous role as a guardian to his brother.

The names of two of the Kinderguardians, Hana and Taro (generic Japanese girl and boy names meaning "flower" and "peach"), refer to their small role in the plot — in Japanese, the names Hana and Taro Yamada are the rough equivalents of Jane and John Doe.
