- — Flip, Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Flip is a monkey villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where he replaces Champ who was originally intended to appear. Flip's name is likely a reference to a monkey's behavior: some monkeys are known to flip in the air while climbing in trees, and his picture quote is a reference to "see no evil, hear no evil, say no evil", otherwise known as the "three evils" that is typically represented by three monkeys. His Japanese name refers to Sarutobi Sasuke, a famous fictional ninja whose surname Sarutobi means "monkey jump".
Flip is an orange monkey with pink cheeks, and buckteeth. The inside of his ears are green. His initial shirt is the Happi Tee.
