— Kicks, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Welcome amiibo

Kicks is a skunk in the Animal Crossing series. He first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk, where he shines the player's shoes in the city. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pocket Camp, and New Horizons, he sells shoes and socks at his own shop or stall.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Kicks is a skunk with black and white fur, as well as a tan nose and insides of his ears. He wears a beige hat and suspenders.

Personality[edit]

Kicks is implied to speak with a Cockney accent; for example, he pronounces "alright" as "awright" or "hello" as "'allo", and frequently uses words such as "mate," "crikey," and "chum."

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Kicks appears on the steps of a run-down building in the city to the right of the auction house. He can shine the player's shoes for 500 Bells, changing the color of the shoes. He asks the player how they want to match their shoe color to their current appearance: "Go by color" or "Match my style." After the player has their shoes shined 16 times, Kicks allows them to choose shoe types of the opposite gender.

Kicks's services are available from 9 AM to 9 PM and he does not appear when it is raining or snowing.

In New Leaf[edit]

Description NTSC-U: Crikey! This shoeshine has really come up in the world. He used to work in a faraway city, but now he runs a shoe store with an impressive collection of shoes to choose from. And you can tell from that sharp-looking hat he's wearing that his is a style you can trust.

PAL: Hello, chum! This friendly shoe shop owner used to shine shoes in the city, but now he's managed to save up enough money for his own little shop in town. His outfit might make him look like he sweeps chimneys for a living, but don't worry - you definitely won't find any soot on his wares, awright?
