Jane (フィーバー, Fever) is a snooty, gorilla villager from the Animal Crossing series . Her name probably comes from the famous anthropologist Jane Goodall. It is also possible that her name came from the female explorer Jane in the book and movies Tarzan, who is often called "lord of the apes". Jane's Japanese appearance is likely based on the Ganguro Fad. She has nearly all of the traits-very dark brown skin, pink lipstick and white fur. Bright colors were also associated with this fad, and Jane wears a Rainbow Shirt and has a house full of bright-colored furniture. Given the timing of Animal Crossing's release, she was likely changed due to the game coming out shortly after Pokemon's Jynx controversy, and Nintendo wanted to avoid another potential controversy.
Jane's look from the Japanese games
In the Japanese-only games, Jane was a brown-skinned gorilla with white fur. She had a spot on the back of her head, with the same color of her fur. The rest is the same as in Animal Crossing.
Jane is a purple-skinned gorilla with darker purple fur, pink lipstick, and blue eye shadow. She initially wears the Rainbow Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
As a snooty villager, Jane will appear uptown, classy, and chic. With this, however, she will appear rude, belittling, and snobbish when talking to the player or other villagers in the town, usually criticizing their dress sense or fashion. When talking to the player enough times, she will befriend them but still remain subtly rude. As with all snooty villagers, she has an interest in clothes over other hobbies. She will have problems socializing with other villagers, usually lazy villagers by disagreeing with their choice of lifestyle or getting offended by a jock villager, who has questioned her physical fitness.
In Animal Crossing, Jane's house contains a variety of bright furniture. A Lovely Lamp sits in one corner of the room, while three shirts (a Rainbow Shirt, an A Shirt and an Orange Tie-Die) occupy some of the west wall. Heading toward the back of the room, a Pop Machine sits in the left corner, while an Apple TV, a Retro Stereo, and a Tulip Chair take up the rest of the wall. In front of the chair is a Daffodil Table. In the center of the room is a Cream Sofa, with another Daffodil Table and Tulip Table in front of it. Jane has a Kitschy Wall and a Kitschy Tile.
