Kabuki (かぶきち, Kabukichi) is a cranky, cat villager who has appeared in all Animal Crossing series games. He is named after the traditional Japanese theater style of the same name, from which he also gets his ornate red patterning. His initial phrase, "meooo-OH", is a play on the word "meow", the sound a cat makes.
Kabuki is a white cat with red stripes and yellow eyes. His eyes have black and blue pupils. It is noticable that Kabuki has teeth in Animal Crossing, but lacks them in the subsequent games. Kabuki has a black mouth and eyebrows. His ears are reddish-pink inside. In Animal Crossing, Kabuki wears a Lavender Robe and in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, a Misty Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click Cranky
Kabuki is a cranky villager, which means he will sometimes appear stubborn and easily annoyed when things are not going his way. He will appear rude and belittling towards other villagers, including the player, but will eventually warm up to them, considering them his only friend. His personality is actually quite unpredictable in this way. He will find the usual hobbies of fishing and bug-catching considerably more interesting compared to other villager types, adding more reason behind the hobbies than other villagers, and considering fossil-hunting and furniture-collecting to be "unimportant". He will get along with other cranky villagers and snooty villagers, who share the same interests and meaningful discussions. He will often suggest planting false information on peppy and normal villagers when no interesting events are happening in the town.
In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Kabuki's house has a Japanese Theme including many items from the Japanese set. He has the Giant Dharma, Japanese Drum, a Tall Oombloid, and a couple of other items. His floor is a Planked Tatami (or Tatami Floor in Animal Crossing: Wild World) from Saharah and his walls are the Shoji Screen. He listens to K.K. Folk on a Reel-to-Reel. His house is a similar in design to Pekoe or Genji's homes, who are also Japanese-stylized villagers.
