"OK, so we don't have our own full-on Extreme Center... But it still ROCKS!"Sterling (ギンカク, Ginkaku?) is a jock eagle villager from the Animal Crossing series. He made his debut to the series in City Folk. Sterling's name comes from "sterling silver" in reference to his metal helmet. His catchphrase is a play on the sound that some birds of prey make. He wears a helmet like Knox's.
— Sterling, City Folk
Sterling wears a silver knight helmet and silver greaves. He is a blue and red eagle with a yellow beak. He initially wears the scale armor suit. He's similar in appearance to Knox, the cranky chicken due to having a knight-like outfit. He is one of the few villagers to wear headgear and shoes.
|Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.|
His house has a Japanese theme, with a deer scare and a birdhouse. If Sterling has a stereo, it will play King K.K. In New Leaf, Sterling's house instead has a more medieval theme. His room is decorated with a Library Wall and a Palace Floor. His furniture includes two pieces from the Gorgeous Series: the Table and the Sofa, along with two sets of Plate Armor and two Rooks. His phonograph now plays Lucky K.K.. After the Welcome amiibo update, his default changed to Surfin' K.K.
