Phil (ケイン, Kein?) is a smug ostrich villager who made his first appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His Japanese name comes from the word cane, a long skinny pole, in reference to his neck. His initial phrase may be a reference to a bird's call.
Phil is a predominately purple ostrich with a red mask. His wings and tail are brown and golden striped feathers. His beak is white in color and his legs are white and golden striped.His overall appearance seems to have some connection to a male pheasant, due to his brightly colored head and brown body. He initially wears a Dawn Shirt.
Phil has a smug personality. This means he will appear kind and gentlemanly when in conversation with the player. On numerous occasions, he will flirt with the player and admire them. Phil will occasionally talk about being into niche hobbies, like being a train fanatic or collecting plastic bottle caps. He will be very interested in fashion and will mention it often in conversations and letters.
Phil's house is very modernly themed and is somewhat feminine, with four pieces from the Minimalist Series, the table with the tea set on top, the minimalist table with a porcelain model, the dresser with the porcelain tea pot, and the vanity. He has Steep Hill playing on his High-End stereo and a House Plant. He has the Kitschy Wallpaper and the Round Carpet as his choice of flooring and wallpaper.
- Phil has a similar resemblance to Falco Lombardi from the Star Fox Series.
