Klaus (クマロス,Kumarosu?) is a smugbearvillager who first appeared in New Leaf. His name may be in reference to a bear's "claws." While the exact meaning of his Japanese name is not known, it does contain the Japanese word "kuma", which means "bear". He is possibly German, because Klaus is a common German name, and 'strudel' is a German dessert. He appears on the album cover for Café K.K.
Klaus is a light blue bear with darker blue cheeks. His muzzle fades into a dark blue as well, and he has curly blond hair. His nose and the insides of his ears are greyish-brown. He has blue, half-closed eyes, making him appear bored or annoyed. He wears gold bracelets on both wrists, and brown sandals; making him one of the few villagers to wear shoes. He initially wears a toga. Contrary to his name and catchphrase, he possibly looks Roman.

Klaus's face, hairstyle, initial armor clothing (NL), initial robe clothing (NH), and enjoying the historical style suggest he is based on Julius Caesar. His birthday is also in March, the infamous month Julius Caesar was assassinated in. This is also acknowledged by the fact that for his home in Happy Home Designer, he wants an ancient Roman bathhouse. Though, it is likely that has been lost in translation, making him German instead.
