Renée is a big sister rhinoceros villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. She is the only big sister rhinoceros in the series. Her name is a play on "rhinoceros." Likewise, her Japanese name is a play on sai, meaning rhinoceros.

In New Horizons, Renée has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.
