Blanca is a faceless cat in the Animal Crossing series. In games prior to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, she appears during multiplayer and asks the player to draw a face on her, while in New Leaf she is the host of April Fools' Day. Her name comes from her fur color; blanca is Spanish for white, and also from the word blank, referencing her absent, blank face.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Blanca is a faceless white cat whose face is drawn by the player. In games prior to New Leaf, she wears a random shirt, though her artwork depicts her wearing a Blossom Shirt, and in New Leaf she wears a red-and-yellow striped outfit with a blue ruff on her neck, resembling a jester.

In her artwork for Animal Crossing, Blanca is drawing a henohenomoheji—a face drawn by Japanese schoolchildren learning hiragana—on her face. In her artwork for Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk as well as her in-game appearance in her RV in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, she has a crudely drawn smiley face drawn on her face.

Personality[edit]

In games prior to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Blanca is insecure about her face since she cannot see what people drew on her. When she visits other player's towns, she says that she likes to travel the world, but she gets upset when spoken to, thinking the player is there to make fun of and spread rumors about her face.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Blanca is a self-proclaimed "professional trickster," enjoying causing mischief on April Fools' Day by disguising as other villagers.

Gender[edit]

In all non-Japanese versions of all games, Blanca is female, while she is male in all Japanese and Korean versions. In Doubutsu no Mori+, Blanca has a male voice, but Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+, she has a female voice. Beginning in Wild World, she has a male voice in all regions.

Relationships[edit]

Jack[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Blanca refers to Jack as her old trickster rival. She mentions that she has been involved in a vicious prank war with Jack for so long that she can no longer trust her house and thus needs a new one.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

Blanca in Animal Crossing.

Blanca makes her first appearance in Animal Crossing. She can appear on the train in place of Rover when the player travels to another town, and she asks the player to draw a face for her. The next time the player who was visited loads their save, Blanca appears in their town for the day with the face the visiting player drew. If spoken to, she asks the player what they think of the face drawn on her.

Rover may mention Blanca on the train when the player travels to another town, saying that he has seen her before on the train and was initially scared by her but had fun drawing her face.

In Wild World and City Folk[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, if the player allows the "mysterious cat" to visit via the telephone in the attic,[nb 5] Blanca can appear in the player's town after visiting another town. When spoken to, she asks the player to draw her a face. The next day, she appears in the town of the player who was visited with the face drawn on her, and she will ask the player how her face looks and allow them to redraw it up to two times. She will then appear in another player's town the next day.[clarification needed]

When spoken to at The Roost in Wild World, Rover may speak of a "mysterious cat," referring to Blanca. He will ask the player if they have seen her.

Due to the discontinuation of WiiConnect24 in 2013, Blanca can no longer be encountered in City Folk.

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Blanca is the host of April Fools' Day. She initially appears in the event plaza during the event, and once the player speaks to her, she asks the player to play a game. During the game, Blanca appears in a villager's house disguised as the villager, and the player must determine which one is Blanca through the hints both the real villager and the disguised Blanca tell them. If the player correctly identifies Blanca in all villagers' houses, she mails the player a congratulatory letter containing Blanca's Pic the next day.

In New Horizons[edit]

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Blanca was added in 2.0 Free Update. Blanca's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting her to Photopia via her amiibo. She also can be summoned to The Roost.

Other appearances[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Blanca can appear as a spectator in the background of the Smashville stage.

Description Her smooth face is just like...well, a blank canvas! She used to let people give her a face by drawing on her, but in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, she uses her peculiar face to trick everyone on April Fools' Day. Only a master of disguise like her could mimic other people so convincingly!

    Trivia[edit]

    • In a character popularity poll held on the Japanese Animal Crossing website, Blanca ranked as the 2nd most popular character with 2,419 votes, ranking above Mr. Resetti but below K.K. Slider.[1]
    • Blanca is erroneously referred to as "Bianca" in the Animal Crossing Prima Studyguide, which is Whitney's Japanese name. It would also end up being the name of a tiger villager beginning in the English version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
