You know, I really have no idea what you do all day! Are you super sly, or am I just not paying attention?
― Phoebe, New Leaf
Phoebe (ヒノコ, Hinoko?) is an uchi ostrich villager who first appears in New Leaf. Both Phoebe's English and Japanese names are plays on the mythical phoenix--one of the Japanese words for which is hi-no-tori, roughly translating to "firebird". Her initial phrase is most likely a reference to the sparks that come from a fire. She appears on the album covers for K.K. Parade and K.K. Salsa.



Phoebe is an orange-red and brilliant yellow ostrich with spotted wings. Given her name, color scheme, and the Flame Tee she wears as her initial outfit, it's likely that she is supposed to resemble a mythical phoenix. Her appearance is somewhat similar to Rio's, another female ostrich that appeared in the early games in the series.


Below is a brief description of the uchi personality. For more information, click here.
Phoebe is an uchi ("big sister") villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Phoebe will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. Like all uchi villagers, Phoebe is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Phoebe has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with uchi villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.

Phoebe will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Phoebe may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others, and she may have trouble getting along with normal villagers.


Phoebe's house includes a variety of furniture themed to her appearance, with red, black and yellow pieces. Her room includes a Gorgeous Bed, a mini squelchoid, a glass-top table in the center, a fireplace, an electric guitar, two simple sofas, and a poinsettia. Her wallpaper is the backgammon wall and the checkered tile is her flooring. She has a turntable which plays K.K. Flamenco.
