Klaus Gallery

Klaus (クマロス, Kumarosu?) is a smug bear villager 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 know, 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.

He has the education hobby.


Klaus is a greyish-blue bear, with darker blue cheeks, and blond hair. His nose and the insides of his ears are greyish-brown. He has blue, half-closed eyes, making him appear serious. He wears gold bracelets on both wrists, and brown sandals; making him one of the few villagers to wear shoes. Contrary to his name and catchphrase, he appears to look Roman.


Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.
Smug villagers are very polite, kind, and gentleman-like. As a smug villager, Klaus will get along easily with other villagers. Smug villagers get along well with most villagers, their personality appearing to be a mix of the other personality types. As a smug villager he will stroke his ego from time to time, going on about how cool he is.

Generally, Klaus will get along with lazy, normal, snooty and peppy villagers, and may conflict with cranky villagers.


In New Leaf, K.K. Milonga plays on his Retro Stereo.

In New Horizons, Klaus's home resembles a bath house. He owns a bath towel and wall-mounted shower, a hot tub, and several Zodiac-themed furniture. He has a Phonograph on a Cancer table an Aquarius urn, and a pitcher. He also owns an automatic toilet and bidet, which are divided by from the Cancer table by a simple panel. K.K. Sonata plays on his Phonograph..

  • 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, this mostly seems to have been lost in translation, making him German instead.
  • Contrary to most villagers, Klaus wears shoes.
