“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 snooty ostrich villager 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.

Queenie's preferred theme is elegant. Her profile says:
Queenie is too hip for any mortal understanding of her tastes. The only sure bet is that if YOU like a thing, it's for squares.

- 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 a form of the slang word "maruja", which is considered derogatory and denotes a stereotypical housewife. The "ita" is added on to turn the word into a name.
- In the Spanish (Spain) and Mexican version of the game, Queenie has two separate catchphrases: "gallina" in Spain, which means "chicken", and "plumifá" in Mexico, which means "feather".
