“Hang in there, kiddo.”Kiki (キャビア, Kyabia?, Caviar) is a normal cat villager which has appeared in every Animal Crossing series game. Her name may come from Hayao Miyazaki's Kiki's Delivery Service, an anime film about a young witch-in-training named Kiki who has a black cat, named Jiji. Her Japanese name refers to Caviar, a fish egg delicacy that cats love. She has the education hobby.
― Picture quote, Wild World
Kiki may be a reference to the black cat, or it may come from the sound produced when saying "kittykitty" fast. Her quote on her picture in Wild World probably comes from the popular motivational poster of a cat hanging from a tree and saying "Hang in there.". Her New Leaf picture quote is akin to K.K. Slider's.
Kiki is a black cat with yellow eyes and black pupils. Her ears are bright magenta inside, and she has a pushed up, pudgy nose. She initially wears the Argyle Knit top which is red and green in a line of diamonds, knitted with golden yellow stitches across each diamond. The tips of her arms and legs are a darker black than the rest of her body. She has a red mouth with a pink tongue, and the bridge of her nose is gray.

Her profile says:
Bad things have a habit of happening to Kiki. Maybe black cats can jinx themselves.

- Kiki's eyes appear oddly stretched horizontally in New Leaf and Pocket Camp. This was fixed in New Horizons, as the eyes of Kiki in that game are regularly shaped..
- Kiki is likely a reference to the 1989 Studio Ghibli film Kiki's Delivery Service, as she shares the main character's name. On top of this, the main character Kiki owns a black cat named Jiji, who shares a striking resemblence with the villager.
