Uchi (ウチ Uchi, or アネキ Aneki) ('big sister') is a type of personality introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Uchi villagers are very caring towards the player and are less vain than the snooty or peppy villagers, but they are also more blunt and tomboyish and may come across as rude on some occasions. Uchi villagers normally wake up at 11 AM and sleep at 3AM, and there are 21 of them. Even though all uchi villagers are female, other villagers may sometimes refer to them using male pronouns.
Uchi villagers will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. These girls are tough, but still care deeply about their appearance. They have a tendency to stay up very late at night. When befriended, they will give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. It is easy to get their picture since developing friendships with uchi villagers is simple due to their caring and protective nature. They will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Some Public Works Projects can only be suggested by uchi villagers, such as the wood bench.
Below are some (not all) quotes made by uchi villagers.
"Wh-whoa! Giant (Native fruit)" (When you wake them up when they are sleeping standing in their house)
"Dude! This is so cool!"
"(Player name), you're lookin' at me weird! (catchphrase)"
- Uchi villagers are the last to wake up in the morning, at 11:00 AM.
- They will almost always give the player medicine when they have been stung by bees.
