Pinocchio, sometimes referred to as Pinoke, is a character from Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. He is the main character from the 1940 film Pinocchio.
 Between Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts
Pinocchio is, originally, a wooden puppet brought to life by the Blue Fairy after his maker Geppetto wished for a son. Jiminy Cricket has been assigned to be Pinocchio's conscience, because he is too young to know the difference between right and wrong. Unfortunately for all three, the Heartless destroyed their world, causing them to become separated.
 Kingdom Hearts
As many others who have lost their worlds, Pinocchio ends up in Traverse Town. While stealing inside the Accessory Shop he is met by Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Jiminy. Without his conscience, Pinocchio has been misbehaving, but in the end Jiminy manages to set him straight. Pinocchio promises Jiminy that he would behave from that point onwards and find his father.
After Sora and Jiminy leave Traverse Town, Pinocchio is somehow reunited with his father. Unfortunetly, they are both swallowed by Monstro and end up inside the whale's belly.
Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Jiminy are swallowed by the whale en route to another world, and are reunited with Pinocchio once more. They follow him to a ship and meet Geppetto.
Pinocchio, however, notices Riku from afar, running into one of Monstro's bowels. Curious, Pinocchio follows Riku but is captured by him, as Riku hopes to use Pinocchio's heart to revive Kairi's. Riku leads Sora, Donald ,and Goofy on a chase of hide and seek, constantly throwing taunts to his old friend. Pinocchio eventually manages to escape from Riku, but runs into a giant Heartless, the Parasite Cage, and ends up trapped inside it.
The Parasite Cage attempts to steal the puppet's heart. It is because of this that Riku and Sora team up to destroy it - but after rescuing Pinocchio, Riku kidnaps him again. Sora, Donald, and Goofy chase Jiminy into Monstro's stomach where Sora confronts Riku while Jiminiy checks on a comatose Pinocchio.
Thanks to the compassion of Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio's friends, together they manage to return Pinocchio to his former self.
After Sora, Donald and Goofy leave Monstro, it is later seen that Pinocchio and Geppetto are now living in Traverse Town in a house found for them by Leon, trying to piece their life together again. Later on, after Sora and co has defeated Ansem, Pinocchio is seen becoming a real human boy and joyfully bounces around the room in happiness.
 Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
Pinocchio appears as a fragment of Sora's memories during his journey through Castle Oblivion. This version of Pinocchio feels guilty for getting trapped within Monstro, and so goes deeper into the giant whale's body to find a way out.
When the trio finally catch up, Pinocchio is caught inside a Parasite Cage Heartless again. After they defeat the heartless, Sora teaches Pinocchio to be brave and fight his way out. He does so and frees himself just before the monster vaporizes. Then, he gives them an idea about making Monstro sneeze to escape. After he gave them his idea, he returns to Geppetto. When the trio heroes make the monster sneeze, Pinocchio and Geppetto escape to safety.
 Kingdom Hearts II
Pinocchio is seen beside Riku in Monstro in one of Roxas's dreams.
 Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
Pinocchio is a marionette made to look like a little boy. This is clearly reflected by his arms and legs, which are rectangular blocks of peach-colored wood. His legs also have clear hinges at his knees. Other than this, however, it is rather difficult to tell him apart from a normal boy, and he in fact becomes one during the end credits of Kingdom Hearts. Pinocchio has thick, black hair and eyebrows, blue eyes, and four-fingered hands. His nose is slightly darker colored than the rest of his "skin", and grows when he lies.
Clothing-wise, Pinocchio wears a yellow hat with a red feather in it, brown shoes, and white gloves like those worn by many older Disney characters. He wears a tan, short-sleeved shirt under a black vest with gold lining. His shorts are red, and he wears a blue bow on the front of his shirt.
Pinocchio is a curious and honest boy, yet a bit gullible and mischievous, and doesn't have a sense of what's right and wrong, which is why Jiminy takes the role of his "conscience". He is also shown to be brave enough to wander around Monstro's stomach, looking for a way out; even though there are Heartless lurking around, as well as hazards like stomach acids. He often lies to others, but is given away by his nose getting longer for each lie.
Pinocchio is originally from the Disney animated feature film, Pinocchio, which was originally based on the story The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi. Geppetto, the woodworker who created Pinocchio, wishes for Pinocchio to be a real boy—a wish that Pinocchio must work hard to make come true.
In the film, Pinocchio went into many misadventures, such as being a star in a puppet show, nearly being turned into a donkey on Pleasure Island, then being swallowed by Monstro while searching for Geppetto. They manage to escape the whale, but Pinocchio is killed as a result, though he is soon revived by the Blue Fairy and transformed into a real boy because he furfilled the requirements to become a real boy.
