Six scummy steaks... slick stormy spats... stinky skeleton snot....!
― Kabuki, City Folk
Kabuki (かぶきち, Kabukichi?) is a cranky cat villager who has appeared in all Animal Crossing series games. He is named after the traditional Japanese theater style of the same name, from which he also gets his ornate red patterning. His initial phrase, "meooo-OH", is a play on the word "meow", the sound a cat makes, and the typical sound a Kabuki actor makes during their Mie pose. He is also the only cat with a cranky personality in Wild World. He has the music hobby.

Kabuki in Animal Crossing

Kabuki is a white cat with red stripes and yellow eyes. The markings on his face resemble different types of Kabuki make-up. His eyes have blue pupils. It is noticeable that Kabuki has teeth in Animal Crossing, but lacks them in the subsequent games. Kabuki has a black mouth and eyebrows. His ears are reddish-pink inside. In Animal Crossing, Kabuki wears a Lavender Robe and in Wild World and City Folk, a Misty Shirt.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Kabuki will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Kabuki will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


In City Folk and Wild World, Kabuki's house has a Japanese Theme including many items from the Japanese set. He has the Giant Dharma, Japanese Drum, a Tall Oombloid, and a couple of other items. His floor is a Planked Tatami (or Tatami Floor in Wild World) from Saharah and his walls are the Shoji Screen. He listens to K.K. Folk on a Reel-to-Reel. His house is a similar in design to Pekoe or Genji's homes, who are also Japanese-stylized villagers. His home request is a shrine for zen items.

In NL, Kabuki's house starts with a black katana, hearth, screen, go board, retro tv, mochi pestle, blue kotatsu, Reel-to-Reel, plum bonsai, screen, Modern Screen, and Tatami Floor. His house resembles Cyrano's house in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Profile Kabuki loves to perform, but he's too easily distracted to become a serious street actor. Instead of rehearsing, he'll start doing push-ups and pretty soon his entire day will be shot.
