Kennedy (Japanese: クロダ Kuroda) is a character of the day who appeared in Stairway to Devon. He is the assistant to the Devon Corporation's President, Mr. Stone. He notifies Mr. Stone of upcoming appointments and scheduled meetings.
Max first saw Kennedy chasing after Mr. Stone and mistook him for a kidnapper. After the misunderstanding was cleared, Mr. Stone sent Kennedy to escort Ash, May, and Brock to the Devon Corporation to reunite them with Max. The entire time, Kennedy made little conversation aside from niceties with Ash and his friends, though he did inform them about Mr. Stone's son, Steven. Kennedy keeps a phone with him at all times, and assisted Ash and his friends as they tracked down the Team Aqua Grunt on the Devon Corporation's roof.
