Cats spend a lot of time crawling around on their knees. Performers are on their knees in a lot of the choreography, and cosplayers spend time posing with kids, and playing about. Without kneepads this can result in a lot of bruising and stiffness.

Kneepads are worn under most characters' costumes, they are usually particularly slim-line and discreet, and many characters have long leg warmers that cover them. Some productions have custom made kneepads, but some use commercial products.
