Pad is the fifteenth episode of .hack//Roots.
Tabby meets two new members of The World. She helps them play the game but says she can't help them like Shino and Sakisaka helped her. Tabby then meets Kuhn when she goes to talk to Phyllo. Kuhn, understanding Tabby's problem, teaches the two brothers and Tabby about to level up efficiently in The World. Haseo, still angry about what happened to Shino at that mysterious Kite-looking guy, decides that he will stop at nothing to bring Shino back and get revenge on Tri-Edge.
- "Pad" was intended to mean, and is perhaps a misspelling of, "Paw".
- This episode triggered the appearance of the Paw Pad Squadron.
