Phoebe is a big sister ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. She is the only big sister ostrich in the series. Both Phoebe's English and Japanese names are plays on the mythical phoenix, known as hinotori in Japanese. Hinoko can also mean "sparks."

In New Horizons, Phoebe has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Phoebe from New Leaf.

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 tail feathers. Her appearance is based on a phoenix. Her description in Pocket Camp also refers to the longevity of this mythical bird.

Personality[edit]

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

Having the big sister personality, Phoebe will be the elder sister figure of the player in the game. 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.

Villager information[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Phoebe cannot be one of the starting villagers in the player's town.
