Nindori (ニンドリ, Nindori?) is an ostrich villager with a jock personality from the Animal Crossing series, who only appears in the Japanese exclusive Animal Forest e+. He could only move into a village if the player has his e-Card.

His name is likely a reference to how his e-Card is exclusive to the Japanese Nintendo gaming magazine Nintendo Dream, the Japanese equivalent of the now-defunct Nintendo Power magazine. The title of Nintendo Dream was often shortened to "Nin-dori". His name also may be a portmanteau of "Nintendo" and 鳥 (tori?), the Japanese word for "bird". Due to a phenomenon in Japanese grammar known as rendaku, "tori" may be pronounced in compound words as "dori".

There is no birthday for characters that do not appear in the works after Wild World, with the exceptions of Frillard and Serena, special characters exclusive to City Folk who also do not have birthdays, as well as the special character Gullivarrr, a pirate seagull who is exclusive to New Horizons. However, Nindori is an exception, as the e-Card made in Japan has written " 9月14日生まれ " (birthday is September 14th).


Nindori in game

Nindori starting the game up.

Nindori is an orange ostrich. His head is designed after an orange Nintendo GameCube, with his hollow-looking eyes meant to be the controller ports, the square marks on his cheeks meant to be the grills on either side of the console, and the design on the back of his head meant to be the (closed) disc drive. The tips of his wings and tail are black, and his feet and beak are yellow. He initially wears the G logo shirt.


Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

Nindori has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Nindori is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky, and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Nindori.


Nindori's house is the same as Bangle's, only that he has used the Green Wall and the 8 Mat Tatami. Go K.K. Rider! plays on a Reel-to-Reel. He has two plants, both cacti, a retro TV, an apple clock, two guitars, a modern sofa, and a N64 Logo. Nindori also has three Gyroids, the Mini Nebuloid, the Mini Dinkoid, and the Mini Spuntoid.
