Ken is a smug chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His picture quote, "C'est la vie!", is French for "that is life." His English name is likely derived from "shuriken" since he initially wears a ninja shirt. His name may also be a reference to the last part of his species name.

In New Horizons, Ken has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel-type book while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Ken from New Leaf.

Ken is a black chicken with blue highlights, and teal lines separating the blue parts of his body from the black parts. He has pink circles on his cheeks, making him appear to be blushing. His eyes are simple white eyes with black pupils. His beak is a light yellow, and his feet are light yellow with darker stripes.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.

Ken is a Smug villager, meaning he will come off as gentleman-like and polite. Smug villagers seem to be a mix between some personalities, and are kind, lively but can come off as conceited. Regardless of gender, they will occasionally flirt with the player. Smug villagers cannot be a starter villager, and can only move in after the player becomes mayor. They wake up at 8:30 AM.

Villager information[edit]
