Celeste is an owl in the Animal Crossing series first appearing in Animal Crossing: Wild World and later in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. She is slightly smaller than Blathers (being his little sister). Her plumage is burgundy, and she has a pink bow on her head. She works in the Museum with her brother, Blathers, where she operates the observatory. She is sensitive, calm, and quiet, unlike her brother. Her sensitivity shows when she is caught snoozing during the day; she will tell the player that she does not sleep on the job and only her brother Blathers does. Her main role in the games is to help make constellations and stargazing.


Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Celeste makes her debut in Animal Crossing: Wild World, acting to assist the player in making constellations and stargazing. Upon talking to her in the observatory, located up the stairs behind Blathers, she will give the player the option to create, delete, or view constellations. The player can also inform Celeste that she is cute, but she thinks the player is teasing her and simply asks them to look through the telescope instead. Celeste will also need to be talked to in order to unlock Blathers' Episodes. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Celeste has the exact same job as in Wild World.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

Celeste returns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf where she runs a gift shop on the Museum's second floor after it has been built, as stargazing was removed. She sells Museum-themed items as well as silver tools. She will even allow the player to open up an exhibition room of their own provided that they pay her a rental fee of 10,000 Bells.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

Celeste NH.png

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Celeste can be seen on various nights wandering around the island. If talked to, she will inform the player about meteor showers and tell them how to wish when a shooting star falls. She will also give the player recipes that are different for each visit. If she appears during a meteor shower, she can be seen wishing when shooting stars come by.

Animal Crossing: The Movie[edit]

Celeste appears in the film alongside Blathers in the museum where they meet Ai for the first time. Ai meets Celeste and Blathers when she is screaming while seeing the fossils, which in the dark, resemble real dinosaurs, in the museum. Celeste becomes good friends with Ai. She has a minor role in the movie.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Celeste appears as a trophy and sometimes appears on the Smashville stage.

Blathers & Celeste Trophy Brawl.png #272 Blathers & Celeste
Blathers, the elder of this pair, is curator of the town museum, and he's in charge of the insect, art, fish, and fossil displays. He's quite knowledgeable and shares what he knows about donations. He's in charge of donated bugs but hates the majority of them. His younger sis, Celeste, is in charge of the museum's observatory. She's cute even with her feathers ruffled.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Celeste makes an appearance as a trophy, and as a background character in both the Smashville and Town and City.

NTSC-U: Celeste works in the town museum, where you can find her dozing during the day. You can't really be mad about that, though—she is an owl, after all. Most residents will let her sleep, knowing that she'll wake up promptly if she's needed. What could she be dreaming about?

PAL: Go to the town museum during the day to see Celeste working there. Working...and snoozing. You can't really blame her, though—she is an owl! If you ever need her help with something, just talk to her and she'll wake right up. If you don't need her help, though, maybe you should be nice and let her keep dreaming!
