Blanche is a snooty ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. Her name is the French word for white, referring to her feather color.

In New Horizons, Blanche has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Blanche from New Leaf.

Blanche is a white ostrich, resembling a stork or an egret, with a black beak, pink cheeks, and black tips on her wings and tail. Her eyes have red eyeliner in tandem with her snooty personality. Her legs and feet are pink and striped.

Personality[edit]

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

As a snooty villager, Blanche will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She may also talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings, but still subtly rude. She will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles with her own. She may get on with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others.
