Klaus is a smug, bear villager introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name is a reference to the "claws" of a bear and is derived from the Greek "Nikolaos". Befitting this, he has a Greek look to his appearance and his house.



Klaus NL.png

Klaus' body is light blue. His cheeks, belly, paws and tail are all pale aqua. The inside of his ears and his nose are black, and he has small blue eyes. He has a frown, which may lead one to think he is a cranky villager. He has blond hair, and also appears to wear yellow arm rings and gladiator sandals.


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

Klaus has a smug personality, which means he is friendly and polite. Occasionally, he will flirt with the player, regardless of their gender. He also has numerous hobbies, such as dancing and collecting bottle caps. Although he is generally kind, he can also come off as conceited. Klaus gets along with any villager regardless of their personality. He will fall asleep at 2:00 a.m. and wakes up at 8:30 a.m.
