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."

Her catchphrase relates to her arrogant "snooty" personality, by saying "me," and a sound a cat makes, "meow." 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 for GameCube, Ankha loves cherries and is allergic to apples.



Ankha in Dōbutsu no Mori +

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.

Ankha and Apple talking to the player

Ankha has a snooty personality, which means she will appear arrogant and snobbish towards the player and other villagers. She will also appear friendly and nice in as the player befriends her, provided that he or she does not insult or disagree with her lifestyle. She finds herself important, and will get angry or upset if someone criticizes her sense of style or fitness, which means a conversation between her and a jock villager may leave either one upset or angry. She will also find it difficult to get along with lazy villagers due to their lack of care when it comes to appearance, their interest in food, and their laid-back lifestyles. Among others, she will find it difficult to get along with most villagers.


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.

Profile: Ankha's face shines with beauty and the sparkle of youth, but she claims was a cat in Cleopatra's court. That would make her 3,000 years old! How many years do nine lives make?
