Ankha is a snooty cat villager who made her Animal Crossing series debut in Animal Crossing, and has appeared in almost every game since then, except for Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. In Animal Crossing, she is an islander, whereas from City Folk onwards, she is a villager. Her name is based on the ankh, which is the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that reads "life." Her catchphrase relates to her arrogant "snooty" personality, by saying "me," and a sound a cat makes, "meow." Her Japanese catchphrase, Kufufu, is a combination of the Pharaoh Khufu, and ufufu, a Japanese onomatopoeia for laughter. Egyptians worshiped cats, and had a cat god, which may be where the idea for Ankha's design came from.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Ankha PG.png

Ankha is a navy blue-and-gold-striped cat, with navy blue eyeliner in the style of Egyptian royalty (black around the eyes, then wings out towards the outside of the eye). She also has orange eyeshadow which can be seen when she blinks. Her large black pupils look upwards, and her mouth is constantly curved into a scowl, even when she is happy. Her headgear was worn by Queen Cleopatra, the Hellenistic ruler of Egypt. She has a slightly different style in City Folk, where she lacks the normal pharaoh headdress, which was replaced with a head pendant, but it was changed back to a headdress in New Leaf.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

Ankha has a snooty personality, which means she will appear arrogant and snobbish towards the player and other villagers, but will appear friendly and nice in some discussions, provided they are mature and do not insult her lifestyle. She finds appearance important, and will get angry or upset if someone criticizes her sense of style or fitness, which means a conversation between her and a jock personality may leave either one upset or angry. Her attitude towards the player changes, as she begins to warm up to them, but she will still retain some arrogance and subtle rudeness. She may not get along with lazy villagers, due to their lifestyles - lazy villagers having a strong interest in food or relaxing, both of which will make her uncomfortable, angry, and upset when in conversation. She will upset peppy villagers, usually by gossiping about them, and finding small things to judge them on. She will get along well with normal, cranky, and other snooty villagers.

Fruit Allergy[edit]

As an islander in Animal Crossing, Ankha is allergic to apples. Feeding her an apple will reduce the likelihood of her dropping money bags. She loves cherries, which will increase the likelihood of her dropping money bags.
