“No airbrushing necessary!”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Monique (ジェーン,Jān?, Jane) is a snootycatvillager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in every game. A few famous actresses have the name Monique, which gives reason to believe that she has this name in reference to them. It should also be noted that Monique is a French name that means "adviser". Snooty characters tend to "advise" the player, telling them if they are doing something wrong in their opinion. Her catchphrase, "pffffft," is the sound made when not caring, similar to sighing, which compliments her snooty personality.
Monique's facial appearance bears a resemblance to Marilyn Monroe, specifically to the pose portrayed in the Pop Art piece by Andy Warhol. Further supporting this is her blonde hair, red lipstick, and beauty mark on the left side of her mouth. She also wears purple eye shadow and claims she has blush from Ms. Nintendique. Her body is mostly white, except for her tail which is striped in gold. Monique's eyebrows are arched elegantly as if she were judging someone. She initially wears the Grape Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Monique has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Monique will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confining in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Monique will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
Monique's house is decorated with the Lovely Series, having almost every object except for the Lovely Loveseat; she instead has the Cream Sofa. She has a Ceramic Tile floor and Groovy wallpaper, and will play K.K. Swing if she has a stereo.
Nobody spends as much time getting ready for the day as Monique. Word around the village is that she gets up at five in the morning to start putting on her makeup. Who does she think she is, a movie star?
