It's about time you showed up, chimp!
― Jane, Animal Crossing


Jane (フィーバ, Fība?, Fever) is a snooty gorilla villager from the Animal Crossing series. She only appeared in the early games of the series. The combination of her name, species and initial catchphrase, "chimp", reference Jane Goodall, a famed primatologist who spent 45 years studying the social and familial interactions of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania. She formerly was featured on the cover for K.K. Parade, but in New Leaf, due to her absence in that game, she was replaced with Rocket.

Appearance

Jane is a gorilla with pink skin, including her feet and hands, and magenta fur. She has black, half-closed eyes that make her appear disinterested. She wears pink lipstick and blue eye shadow. She initially wears the Rainbow Shirt.

In Animal Forest, Jane's appearance was very different. She was a brown-skinned gorilla with white fur, pink eyeshadow, and pink lips. Her appearance was changed in Animal Crossing due to the fact that she resembled a stereotypical depiction of African-Americans known as blackface.

Personality

Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

Jane has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Jane 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. Jane 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.

House

Jane's house contains a variety of bright furniture. A lovely lamp sits in one corner of the room, while three shirts-a rainbow shirt, a -shirt and an orange tie-die respectively occupy some of the west wall. Heading toward the back of the room, a pop machine sits in the left corner, while an apple TV, retro stereo, and one tulip chair take up the rest of the wall. In front of the chair is a daffodil table and in the center of the room is a cream sofa, with another daffodil table and tulip table in front of it. Jane has a kitschy wall and a kitschy tile. She also has K.K. Soul playing on her stereo.

Profile Some people like to read. Others like to go outside and play in the sun. Jane, well... She likes to be noticed. By everyone, everywhere. Maybe that's why she wears that colorful outfit of hers!
