Ostriches are a species of bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. They are mainly differentiated from the generic bird villagers by their prominent necks and fan-like tail feathers. Not all villagers in this category necessarily resemble ostriches; villagers in this category can represent peafowl, cranes, pheasants, flamingos, and storks. The species contains villagers based on many other birds that are larger than typical passerines.
There are twelve ostriches so far, of which eight are female and four are male, making it a predominantly female species. Of these, three are snooty, two are normal, two are jock, two are peppy, one is lazy, one is smug, and one is big sister. There are currently no cranky ostriches. Nindori is the only ostrich who has not reappeared since Doubutsu no Mori e+. Phil is also absent in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Additionally, Queenie is the only ostrich to appear in every game so far.
