"It's nice that you have me as a friend."
— Picture quote, Wild World
Yuka (ユーカリ,,Yūkari?) is a snootykoalavillager in the Animal Crossing series and is the only koala to have appeared in every game to date. Her name "yukari" means "purple" or "violet". She may get her English name from eucalyptus plants, sometimes called yukkas, which koalas eat the leaves off of. Yuka's Japanese name is a shortened version of eucalyptus. Her initial phrase is a reference to her snooty personality, as people often use "tsk tsk" to express disapproval and distaste.
Yuka is a blue koala with tipped light blue paws and light blue hair. The insides of her ears are white and she has a long, brown nose. Yuka also has pink eyeshadow, and her eyelashes seem to be bright blue. Her initial clothing is Citrus Gingham.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
As a snooty villager, Yuka will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences, rather than the needs and concerns of others. She may also talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually criticizing the females such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. Yuka brings up her boyfriend every now and then. Yuka's boyfriend does not appear in the game, however. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings, but still keeping subtly rude. She will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles with her own. She may get along with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others.
