― Knox, City Folk
Knox (キンカク, Kinkaku?) is a cranky chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series whose first appearance was in City Folk. He wears a knight's helmet, which may link him to Sterling who wears a silver helmet. His name may be a play on Fort Knox, which also links to his gold colored helmet, while "kin" in his Japanese name means "gold". His catchphrase, "cluckling", is the same as Betty's.


Knox is a gray chicken who is dressed as a knight from medieval times. He initially wears a Cavalier T shirt. His helmet and greaves are gold. Also one of the very few villagers to wear headgear and shoes. He is similar in appearance to Sterling, the jock eagle villager. Due to his helmet may could think he’s a jock as well.


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, Knox 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. Knox will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


Knox is known to have a medieval-themed room, as well as some cardboard boxes, a covered wagon, birdcage, firepit and a bookshelf. He has kegs and barrels along with other brown objects. If he has a stereo in his house, it will play K.K. Aria.
