Queenie (タキュ, Takyu?) is an snooty ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name does not directly link to her species or personality, but it can be said that snooty villagers see themselves as high up in the hierarchy, seeing themselves as royalty. Her name may also be a reference to Queensland in Australia, where emus, a similar animal to ostriches, can be found. Her initial phrase, "chicken," is a joke on her species, a chicken being a member of the bird class as is her species, the ostrich. She has appeared in every game of the series, and the only ostrich to appear in every game. Her picture quote, "No retouching necessary", is very similar to the quote on Monique's picture, "No airbrushing necessary!"
Queenie is a purple ostrich who has pink blush on her cheeks and short purple hair with choppy bangs. She has slanted U-shaped eyes with a black pupil and a vacant expression. She has gray and white wings with an orange beak and pink legs. She initially wears a Laced Shirt (changed to Amethyst Shirt in New Leaf).
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
As a snooty villager, Queenie will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She may also talk 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. She will find it hard to get along with other villagers, specifically jock and lazy villagers who have conflicting lifestyles with her own. She may get on with cranky villagers, who also enjoy gossiping about the appearance and lifestyles of others. She can be friendly, but sometimes she can be mean. She talks about fashion a lot.
HouseInside 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.
- In the Prima guide for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, for some unknown reason she is referred to as an octopus, even though she is an ostrich.
- Her Spanish name is the diminutive form of the slang word for housewife, "maruja".
