Katrina is a panther in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Prior to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, she runs the Fortune Shop and tells the player their fortune. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, she provides the same fortune-telling service at the open-air market of Harv's Island. The "Kat" part of her name relates to her species, as panthers are a type of large wild cat.



Artwork of Katrina from Doubutsu no Mori.

Katrina is a dark-blue panther with light-blue inner ears, and a dark-red inner mouth. Her big half-closed eyes have white sclera, bright orange irises, black pupils, and purple makeup. Each of her arms has a dark-pink paw, grayish-blue fingernails with a little bit white, and a gold ring-shaped garter. Her eyelashes and feet are bluish-gray, while her tail is dark-blue, light-blue and bluish-gray. She wears a red veil covering her small tuft of hair, gold jewelry headdress with a red gem, and a dress with multiple colors (red, purple, pink, dark-red, dark-purple and goldish-yellow).

On New Year's Day from Doubutsu no Mori to Doubutsu no Mori+, Katrina dresses on some occasions in a traditional Japanese hakama, with her head fully exposed and a white band on her forehead, as well as sometimes wearing her traditional purple robes.


Katrina talks like a snooty villager or a wise woman, due to her job as a fortune-teller.


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.

Katrina has a male voice like Gracie and Saharah (who are both male in Japan), but in later games, she has a female voice.

In Wild World[edit]

Artwork of Katrina from Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Katrina's role in Animal Crossing: 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 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 Animal Crossing: 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]

Artwork of Katrina from Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

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 no longer show up in town. Talking to her via the Fortune Shop or through the lovely phone will reveal the player's luck for the day.

In New Horizons[edit]

Katrina in New Horizons.

Katrina was added to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the 2.0 Free Update. After the player donates 100,000 Bells to the Lloid on the far left at Harv's Island, she will set up her store. Each day for 1,000 Bells each, Katrina offers to tell the player if they will have more or less luck with belongings, friendship, health or money, and to check their friendship level with one of the villagers on their island. If Katrina predicted bad luck with something, she will offer to perform a purification ritual in order to nullify the bad effects. If Katrina saw that friendship with the villager could be improved, she will offer to pray for it to be better. Each action costs 10,000 Bells. In addition, Katrina's poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting 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 and a sticker 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.

    • Katrina's chanting phrase for divination, "Keeee ha mo-ata... Keeee ha mo-atata..." is roughly derived from the Japanese version, where she says ケッハモルタァ、ケッハモヌラタァ (Kehhamorutaa, kehhamonurataa). This itself is derived from reversing the phrase 当たるも八卦、当たらぬも八卦 (Ataru mo hakke, ataranu mo hakke), a proverb meaning "Sometimes the bagua is correct, sometimes the bagua is not correct" (idiomatically used to mean a prediction may or may not be reliable).[6] The bagua is a set of eight trigrams originating in China used for divination, and its Japanese reading hakke is also the source of Katrina's Japanese name ハッケミィ (Hakkemī) from the word 八卦見 (hakkemi, lit. "bagua seer").
    • When using her fortune teller service in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the last line of Katrina's dialogue before she uses her crystal ball is said in reverse. "LLA SWONK LATSYRC EHT," which is said when performing a fortune or learning on a friendship status, is "THE CRYSTAL KNOWS ALL" in reverse. "RETSASID DIOVA," which is said when purifying a bad fortune, is "AVOID DISASTER" in reverse. Finally, "SELUR PIHSDNEIRF," said when giving a boost to the player's friendship to a villager, is "FRIENDSHIP RULES" in reverse.
    • Katrina shares her birthday with Gaston.
