“No retouching necessary.”
― Picture quote, Wild World
“I don't want to live in a world where I have to eat sugar-free sugar cookies.”
― Queenie, Wild World
Queenie (タキュ,Takyu?) is an snootyostrichvillager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name does not directly link to her personality, but it can be said that snooty villagers see themselves as high up in the hierarchy, seeing themselves as royalty. Her name may be a reference to Queensland, a state in Australia, where emus, a species of bird in the same infraclass as ostriches, can be found. Her initial phrase, "chicken," is a joke on her species, a chicken also being a member of the bird class. She has appeared in every game of the series, and is the only ostrich villager to appear in every game. Her picture quote, "No retouching necessary", is very similar to the quote on Monique's picture, "No airbrushing necessary!" She has the fashion hobby.
Queenie is a purple ostrich who has pink blush on her cheeks and short dark purple hair with choppy bangs. Her eyes are slanted and U-shaped with a large black pupil and a vacant expression. In New Horizons, she has subtle dark brown irises. She has gray and white wings with an orange beak and pink legs. She initially wears a an amethyst shirt (laced shirt prior to New Leaf). In New Horizons, she wears a navy blue Shirtdress.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Queenie has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Queenie will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Queenie will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
Inside her house, she has all the chess furniture from the Chess Theme series. She also has stereo, which plays K.K. Gumbo. She has a Modern Bed which goes along with her "black and white" theme.
Queenie likes to think of social life as a sort of chess game. By deftly manipulating the town's inhabitants -she sometimes calls them "pawns"- she pretty much always gets what she wants with minimum effort.
