Phil is a smug ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. He is the only smug ostrich in the series. His name likely comes from "pheasant." His Japanese name may come from keen, a call made by male pheasants to advertise their territory. His catchphrase may be a reference to a bird's call. Similarly, his Japanese catchphrase is the cry of a pheasant.

In New Horizons, Phil has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.



Artwork of Phil from Welcome amiibo.

Phil's overall appearance is based on the green pheasant. He is a predominately indigo ostrich with a green bottom and brown and yellow feathers on his wings and tail. His beak and legs are a pale yellow color. He also has a red marking around his eyes, resembling a pheasant's wattle.


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

Phil has the smug personality. He is gentleman-like, although he can appear conceited. Nevertheless, he gets along well with other villagers because he is kind and polite to them. Phil's special ability is beatboxing, and his ambition is to become a baseball player. He will partake in the usual hobbies, and his unseen hobby is dancing.
