Katrina is a panther in the Animal Crossing series who tells the player their fortune. She appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where she will be added in the upcoming update set to be released on November 5, 2021. In Animal Crossing she has a male voice like Gracie and Saharah (who are both male in Japan), but in later games she has a female voice.


In Animal Crossing[edit]

Artwork of Katrina from Animal Crossing.

In Animal Crossing, Katrina appears in town when selected as one of the two weekly random visitors. She is found inside Katrina's tent, which will appear at a random signboard. Like all visitors, Copper lets the player know when she will appear in their town if she is the next visitor coming.

When spoken to, Katrina asks the player if they would like a reading for 50 Bells.[1] If the player accepts, Katrina begins chanting to read the player's fortune.[2] She then says 4 phrases, each of which are randomly selected from their own list of 32 phrases. There are 1,048,576 possible combinations of phrases here. The format is as follows:

<Phrase 1>
a <Phrase 2>
<Phrase 3> will
be <Phrase 4>...

Katrina then says that's what she sees and then proceeds to give the player dialogue corresponding to one of the 6 possible types of luck given to the player by the fortune telling.[3] There is a 50% chance of receiving neutral luck and a 10% chance to receive each other type. Each non-neutral type applies different effects to the player for the remaining duration of the day. The types, along with their dialogues and effects, are as follows:

Luck Type Effect Katrina Dialogue Katrina Dialogue 2
Neutral Luck No effect "It means... ...some good things may happen, and some bad things may happen... But don't let small things bother you, and always do what you believe is best. That's what it means. And that's all it means." "Don't take it so seriously. Just recall the good things in your life. If you feel like you need another reading, come see me. Farewell!"
Item Luck Rare items more likely to appear "Hmm...I see! Are you looking for anything in particular? Perhaps a piece of furniture, or some wallpaper... Something different from what everyone else has... If that's the case, now's your chance! ...Perhaps. You may be rewarded with what you're looking for if you help run chores for many animals... Or perhaps not..." "Have you dug up any rare items? Oh, let me tell you, it's no use going to Tom Nook's place. Rare items are special and meant just for you! And it's not like you'll find them on the street, but..."
Money Luck More money given from various sources, such as trees, villagers, money rocks, and glowing spots "Oh, my child! All the money in the world is traveling your way. Won't that be nice? Of course, that may not be what is to happen... After all, there is no such thing as easy money. But for now, you may reap large rewards if you work just a little bit." "You look like you're raking in a lot of money. Huh? Don't just stand there! Answer me this instant! Money doesn't grow on trees, you know! Run errands! Work hard! You'll be rewarded for work! But it's still probably easier just to try to win the lottery."
Bad Luck Player can trip and other negative effects "Ohhh NO! ...Nuh-no, it's all right. Just stay calm, and the trouble... No, I mean, the evil omen should... Well, I'll just say that it's best to be careful. Just a little bit of caution can prevent you from harm. Be positive! But watch your step. Best of luck, my child." "You're covered with bruises. Have you been tripping a lot? That's quite common when you're down on your luck. You should be happy that you didn't sustain a major injury. The glass is half full, do you understand? Just watch your step for now. Then again, maybe you're just clumsy all the time."
Relationship Luck Villagers of the opposite gender of the player will follow them around frequently "I see. Very interesting... You'll be very busy in the coming days. Yesss... Or not... No matter how you feel about this matter, it will rule you. It's no use trying to avoid eye contact, so you should just accept your fate. It's up to you, whether you interpret this event as good or bad..." "I see you're quite popular. How wonderful for you. I hope your happiness will last for eternity. I'm quite sure it won't."
Unpopular Luck Villagers avoid player, act coldly towards player, and lowers friendship with villagers "Hmm, I see... Have you been feeling a bit like... ...animals are avoiding you? It is all in your head. Or perhaps not... Either way, you are not at fault in this fate. Just keep going on as you always have. It may be better in the long run, allowing you to focus on your goals..." "You look rather sad... Ah, yes, you think animals are avoiding you. I know

what you speak of... It's probably temporary. Don't worry about it... I'm sure it'll be all better by dawn tomorrow. No guarantees, of course."

After telling the player their fortune, Katrina says that is all and takes the 50 Bell fee.[4]

On New Year's Day, Katrina will set up a desk by the wishing well, giving the player a letter with a fortune in it.

In Wild World[edit]

Artwork of Katrina from Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Katrina's role in Wild World is generally the same as in the original Animal Crossing, however, Katrina uses cards to read the player's fortune rather than a crystal ball. There are only three possible outcomes in Animal Crossing: Wild World: good luck, bad luck and neutral. The card that Katrina reads out will be in either a natural or inverted state, with natural state usually meaning good luck and inverted state bad luck, but this is not always the case. Katrina's tent will appear randomly in front of the Town Hall on a random weekday. She can tell the player their fortune for 100 Bells. Additionally, she can tell players how compatible they are with someone else for 100 Bells or cleanse their spirit (which clears the effects of bad luck) for 10,000 Bells.

In City Folk[edit]

Artwork of Katrina from Animal Crossing: City Folk.

In City Folk, Katrina can be found in the city in the building furthest to the right, telling fortunes or lucky charms for 100 Bells. She will greet the player by the player's star sign. She can tell the player their fortune once a week (effect lasts for the rest of the day), and/or she can give the player a charm for that month, usually involving strange tasks. However, the player who is given the fortune cannot obtain the charm - the task stated by Katrina (such as planting a number of trees or pulling a number of weeds) needed to be done by a visiting player and only they could obtain the charm. One would have had to cooperate with a friend to do the prescribed tasks in each other's towns to obtain the charm.


Before the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was shut off on May 20, 2014, out of town players could get one of the following beneficial effects the next day, as stated by Katrina, from a lucky charm:

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Katrina visits the player's town in a tent at the event plaza on random weekdays and will tell the player's fortune for 500 Bells. Once players in town have had their fortune told twenty times, and the mayoral player has spoken to Katrina after twenty fortunes have been told, the Fortune Shop on Main Street will become available as a public works project, which requires 340,000 Bells to complete. Completing the project will allow the player to have their fortune told every day, although Katrina's tent will fail to show up in town any more. Talking to them via the Fortune Shop or through the Lovely Phone will reveal the player's Luck for the day.

In New Horizons[edit]

Katrina will be added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons as part of the 2.0 Free Update. She will set up shop at the open market on Harv's Island, and similar to previous games, she will provide the player with their fortune to determine their luck for the day. In addition, Katrina's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after attempting to invite her to Photopia via her amiibo.

Katrina also appears in the NookLink app in an update released on March 30, 2021.[5] Her Words of Wisdom appear when a player collects their daily Nook Points.

In amiibo Festival[edit]

Katrina appears as a visitor in the Board Game mode of Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. If a player lands on a special-event space while she is visiting, they appear in the fortune-teller's shop and can draw a tarot card that affects their luck for one week.

Other appearances[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Katrina appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.




Description A mystical fortune-teller who sets up shop outside the town hall at dusk. For a fee of 100 Bells, she'll use her tarot cards to tell your daily fortune or to check your compatibility. After telling a fortune, she may slip and say, "Sometimes it is just not meant to be," which is considered taboo among fortune-tellers. This surely means that she is hit or miss.
