Phoebe (ヒノコ, Hinoko) is a uchi ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Both Phoebe's English and Japanese names are plays on the mythical phoenix--one of the Japanese words for which is (hinotori), roughly translating to "firebird". Her initial phrase is most likely a reference to the sparks that come from a fire. Additionally, her coloration and initial clothing are fiery, further referencing the phoenix resemblance.



Phoebe is an orange-red and brilliant yellow ostrich with spotted wings, a salmon beak and striped legs. She has a yellow-orange blush on her cheeks and navy eyelashes. She has visible spots and patterns on her wings and tail. These patterns resemble a peacock's tailfeathers. Her initial clothing, the flame shirt, is a black shirt with a fiery pattern.


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

Having the uchi personality, Phoebe will be the elder sister figure of the player in the game. She may sometimes be mistaken as a peppy villager, the counterpart of jock villagers, since she frequently expresses her love of sports while in a conversation with the player. Phoebe enjoys a laid-back and peaceful life, often expressing her discontent about the cranky and snooty villagers who enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers. She may be considered a more free-spirited and adventurous version of normal villagers, and is the female counterpart of smug villagers.
