― Blanche, New Leaf
Blanche (しのぶ, Shinobu?) is a snooty ostrich villager who first appeared in New Leaf. Her name means "white" in French, referencing her feather color. Her initial phrase could be a reference to her personality. Her English name may be a reference to Blanche Devereaux , a character from American sitcom The Golden Girls, who is self-centered and fashionable and occasionally describes herself as a peacock.


Blanche is a white ostrich with a gray beak and turquoise and white feathers on her tail with gray tips at the ends and pink feet and pink blush. Although technically an ostrich, she does resemble a Tundra Swan in some aspects, similar to how Flora resembles a flamingo.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Blanche has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Blanche 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. Blanche 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.


Blanche's house has japanese inspiration. She owns a few Exotic items, namely the table and the bench. She also owns three vases and a tatami bed. Blanche owns a retro stereo that plays K.K. Jongara. Her wallpaper is the Modern Screen, and her flooring is the Old Board Flooring.
