Phrase in other languages

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 New Leaf.

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.
