Knox is a cranky chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games. He is the only cranky chicken in the series. He appears to be based on a medieval knight, wearing a helmet and a Cavalier Shirt, and having a medieval-themed house in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name may come from Fort Knox, an American military base which houses gold, hence his gold helmet. He shares his catchphrase with another chicken villager, Betty.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Knox from City Folk.

Knox is a gray chicken who is dressed as a knight from medieval times. He is one of the few villagers that wear headgear; in this case, a solid gold helmet. His black eyes are halfway covered by his helmet. He has an appearance similar to Sterling, who also has a knight-like outfit.

Personality[edit]

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

Knox is a cranky villager, making him seem quite bitter, but can come across as humorous due to his insulting speech. Knox will belittle and appear insensitive to the player when first interacted with, but eventually will warm up to them when befriended, though he will still be insulting in some cases. Due to his bitter behavior, he will be annoyed by peppy villagers and will offend normal and big sister villagers, though he admires lazy villagers and will get along fine with snooty and other cranky villagers
