Monique (ジェーン, Jane) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. Monique is the name of several famous actresses, and it may also be a reference to Marilyn Monroe. Her Japanese name, Jane, has also been worn by many actresses, but may specifically be in reference to Jane Russell. Her initial phrase, "pffffft", is the word given to the sound made when not caring, similar to sighing. She shares her Japanese name with another snooty villager.


Monique from Animal Crossing

Monique's facial appearance bears a strong resemblance to Marilyn Monroe's, specifically to her portrayal in the pop art piece by Andy Warhol. She has blonde hair, wears red lipstick, and dons a beauty spot to the right side of her mouth (Marilyn's is on her left side, however); she also wears purple eye shadow (although this isn't generally associated with Marilyn). As Monique is a cat, she has pointed ears and a swaying yellow-striped tail; she is covered in white fur. She initially wears a grape shirt made by Gracie, a fashion designer with whom many snooty villagers look up to. On rainy days, Monique can be seen carrying a ribbon umbrella.


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


Monique has a snooty personality, which means she will appear arrogant and snobbish towards the player and other villagers, but will appear friendly and nice in some discussions, provided they are mature and do not insult her lifestyle. She finds appearance important, and will get angry or upset if someone criticizes her sense of style or fitness, which means a conversation between her and a villager with a jock personality may leave either one upset or angry. Her attitude towards the player changes, as she begins to warm up to them, but she will still retain some arrogance and subtle rudeness. She may not get on with lazy villagers, due to their lifestyles - lazy villagers having a strong interest in food or relaxing of which will make her uncomfortable, angry, and upset when in conversation. She will upset peppy villagers, usually by gossiping about them, and finding small things to judge them on. She will get along well with normal, cranky, and other snooty villagers. If she gets sick, she will refer to the player as her "only friend."

Monique's house is decorated with the Lovely Series, having almost every object in the series, except for a lovely love seat, which she instead has the cream sofa and she owns no gyroids. She has a ceramic tile floor. If she has a stereo, it will play "K.K. Swing." Monique calls her house "Casa de Monique."
