"It's about time you showed up, chimp!"Jane (フィーバ, Fever?) is a snooty gorilla villager from the Animal Crossing series. She only appeared in the early games of the series. The combination of her name, species and initial catchphrase, "chimp", reference Jane Goodall, a famed primatologist who spent 45 years studying the social and familial interactions of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania.
— Jane, Animal Crossing
In the localized version of Animal Forest +, Animal Crossing Jane is a gorilla with hot pink skin including her feet and hands along with mild magenta fur. Much like other snooty villagers, she has lipstick and eye shadow, which are pink and a dark blue shadow. She initially wears the Rainbow Shirt when she moves into town.
In the Japanese-only games, Animal Crossing, Animal Forest +, and Animal Forest e+, Jane was a brown-skinned gorilla with white fur and large-pink lips and had a spot on the back of her head, with the same color of her fur, but is mostly the same in Animal Crossing. It is often theorized that this change was due to the concern of possible racial tension in the U.S. and Europe. She shares many traits with Cesar and Violet, other gorilla villagers with similar personalities.

HouseJane's house contains a variety of bright furniture. A lovely lamp sits in one corner of the room, while three shirts-a rainbow shirt, a -shirt and an orange tie-die respectively occupy some of the west wall. Heading toward the back of the room, a pop machine sits in the left corner, while an apple TV, retro stereo, and one tulip chair take up the rest of the wall. In front of the chair is a daffodil table and in the center of the room is a cream sofa, with another daffodil table and tulip table in front of it. Jane has a kitschy wall and a kitschy tile. She also has The K. Funk playing on her stereo .
- Jane's physical appearance was changed between the Japanese and Western versions to avoid racist implications, as her Japanese appearance has brown skin and pink lips, which can be seen as a stereotypical depiction of African Americans.
