Knox is a cranky, chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series that first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk. His name seems to be a play on Fort Knox, as his helmet is made of gold. His Japanese name is a reference to Kinkaku-ji, also known as the Golden Pavilion.



Knox in 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, making him appear to be constantly scowling. His beak is also a yellow color.


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 Sisterly (Uchi) villagers, though he admires Lazy villagers and will get along fine with Snooty and other cranky villagers
