― Ankha, City Folk
Ankha (ナイル, Nairu?, Nile) is a snooty cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game except Animal Forest and Wild World. She reappears in City Folk as well as New Leaf. In Animal Forest+, Animal Crossing, and in Animal Forest e+, she is an Islander. Her name is based on the ankh, which is the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that reads "life." In New Leaf, her picture quote is a reference to the play "The Merchant of Venice" as Bassanio says the same about the lead casket.

Her Japanese name is "Nile," which refers to the African river that many Egyptians settled on. Her German name, "Kleo" is short for "Kleopatra," the German version of Cleopatra, the famous Egyptian queen. Her name is a play on the Hieroglyphic symbol, the "Ankh", meaning life. As an islander in Animal Crossing, Ankha loves cherries and is allergic to apples.


Ankha has golden fur with navy blue stripes and wears Egyptian-like black eyeliner. Ankha initially wears a Red Aloha Shirt while she is an islander, but in City Folk and New Leaf, she wears the Mummy Shirt. She wears an Egyptian headdress that resembles the Nemes crown with a cobra called the "Uraeus", that symbolised kingship in ancient Egypt. In City Folk, Ankha's headdress contains a scarab charm in place of a cobra figurine.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Ankha has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Ankha 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, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Ankha 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 jock villagers 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.


In the first Animal Crossing, Ankha's house has only one item, which is the master sword. In City Folk, Ankha's house takes on a Egyptian look. She has the Ancient Wall and matching carpet in her house which can only be obtained from Saharah. She also has a pyramid, a sphinx, and a birdcage. When she gets a stereo, it will play Marine Song 2001.

Profile Ankha's face shines with beauty and the sparkle of youth, but she claims was a cat in Cleopatra's court. That would make her 3,000 years old! How many years do nine lives make?
