Ankha (/ナイル, Nile) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game except Animal Forest and Animal Crossing: Wild World. She reappears in Animal Crossing: City Folk as well as Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In Dōbutsu no Mori +, Animal Crossing, and in Dōbutsu no Mori e+, she is an Islander. Her name is based on the ankh, which is the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that reads "life."
Egyptians worshiped cats, Bastet the protective cat goddess, and the Egyptian headress. Her Japanese name is "Nile," which refers to the African river that many Egyptians settled on. Her German name, "Kleo" is short for "Kleopatra," the German version of Cleopatra, the famous Egyptian queen. As an islander in Animal Crossing, Ankha loves cherries and is allergic to apples.
Ankha has golden fur with navy blue stripes and wears Egyptian-esque makeup around her eyes. Ankha initially wears a Red Aloha Shirt while she is an islander, but in City Folk and New Leaf, she wears the Egyptian Outfit. She wears an Egyptian headdress that resembles the Nemes crown and gives her the appearance of someone like Cleopatra. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Ankha's headdress contains a scarab charm in place of a cobra figurine
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
She is a snooty character, which means she will appear rude and arrogant when talking to the player. She will talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, including the player, giving her opinion on what they are wearing. She will warm up to the player after some time talking to them, sharing any gossip and asking them for their opinion on what they are wearing and holding. She will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles with her own. She may get on with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others.
In the first Animal Crossing, Ankha's house has only one item, which is the master sword. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Ankha's house takes on a Egyptian look. She has the Ancient Wall and matching carpet in her house which can only be obtained from Saharah. She also has a pyramid, a sphinx, and a birdcage. When she gets a stereo, it will play Marine Song 2001.
