“Hang in there, kiddo.”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Kiki (キャビア,Kyabia?, Caviar) is a normalcatvillager which has appeared in every Animal Crossing series game. Her name may come from Hayao Miyazaki's Kiki's Delivery Service, an anime film about a young witch-in-training named Kiki who has a black cat. Her Japanese name refers to Caviar, a fish egg delicacy that cats love.
Kiki may be a reference to the black cat, or it may come from the sound produced when saying "kittykitty" fast. Her quote on her picture in Wild World probably comes from the popular motivational poster of a cat hanging from a tree and saying "Hang in there.". Her New Leaf picture quote is akin to K.K. Slider's.
Kiki is a black cat with yellow eyes and black pupils. Her ears are bright magenta inside, and she has a pushed up, pudgy nose. She often wears an Argyle Knit which is red and green in a line of diamonds, knitted with golden yellow stitches across each diamond. The tips of her arms and legs are a darker black than the rest of her body. She has a red mouth with a pink tongue, and the bridge of her nose is gray. because of her appearance she can be easily mistaken for a male.
