Phil is a smug ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name likely comes from "pheasant". His Japanese name comes from keen, a call made by male pheasants to advertise their territory. His initial phrase may be a reference to a bird's call. Similarly, his Japanese phrase is the cry of a pheasant.



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. Phil's initial clothing, the dawn shirt, blends in so well with his color scheme that players may mistake the shirt to be the colors on his stomach. 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 with them. Phil's special ability is beatboxing, and his ambition is becoming a baseball player. He will partake in the usual hobbies, and his unseen hobby is dancing. As of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Phil is the only ostrich to have the smug personality.
