Root is one of the main, unlockable characters in Pop'n Music Lapistoria by clearing Nicolas, Rars, and her own story, Donuts Equation (ドーナツ方程式 Dōnatsu Hōteishiki?). She wields a purple, jewel-shaped lapis.
Root has short black hair tied into two pigtails and plain black eyes with glasses. The right side of her hair is decorated with a white "√" hair clip. She wears a uniform consisting of a gray vest with a white shirt, a blue necktie, and a matching pleated skirt beneath a white lab coat. Her stockings are black and worn with green slippers. In her Lose animation, Root dons a black, cliched maid attire with white laces and a matching apron overlapping and a head piece. This is used again in the Sunny Park Card Collection and the April Fool's joke.
Root's 2P color shifts her hair to sky blue, and her eyes are green with gray rimmed glasses. Her uniform is deep teal with gray stockings and yellow slippers, and her lab coat remains white.
Root's appearance remains mostly unchanged, although her gray uniform is instead replaced with the standard blue and gray Lapistoria uniform. The rest of her attire is identical to her debut. In her Lose animation, she gains attire similar to that of her Dooken@Invitation Party appearance, although the dress instead has a plain frilled neckline with a white bow, and the donut ornaments of her headband are absent, instead having simple bows on each side. This palette is recycled in 天才少女が解けない問題 from Pop'n Music: Usagi to Neko to Shounen no Yume.
Her 2P palette switches her hair to bright turquoise and her eyes to blue. Her hair clip is pink, and her uniform is deep blue with a pink tie, gray stockings, and yellow slippers. Her Lose animation colors her dress in all white. In this palette she wields a blue, jewel-shaped lapis.
Root also appears on the rare card, "Dooken@Invitation Party", with Mimi, Nyami, Rars, Rosemary, Ninjin, and Lica wearing a fancy black dress with white lace. Her headband matches her dress and is decorated with donut pins.

Our headquarters is centered on the super beautiful super-genius scientist, Root.
In order to investigate the truth of the universe from doughnuts, we've recently introduced a hypnosis process via doughnuts in order to recruit new members.

よくやった！キミも今日から立派な 超ドー研部員だ！ ちょっ、まっ、逃げるなっ！
Well done! From today, you shall be a respectable member of the Super Donut Lab staff! Hey, wait, don't run away!
Root comes from the mathematical symbol "√", used in square root equations.
- Root's birthdate is identical to Echidna's and Roco's.
- 'Chodooken' translates to 'Super Donut Lab' in English and refers to the laboratory she works for. Therefore, her actual name is simply 'Root'.
