Phoebe is a sisterly 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, known as hinotori in Japanese. Hinoko can also mean "sparks".



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


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

Having the sisterly 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.
