“I'll sneak up behind him and grab at the zipper on his costume, and he'll yell at me sayin' its not a costume. It's pretty fun...for me, cheeky. Bwa ha ha!”
― Shari, New Horizons
Shari (シェリー,Sherī?, Shelly) is a sisterlymonkeyvillager who first appeared in New Leaf. Her catchphrase, "cheeky", may relate to her having round cheeks, or how monkeys are often described as being "cheeky". She has the music hobby.
Shari is a white and grey monkey. Her ear innards and cheeks are a red-pink color, and she has three small eyelashes poking out of each of her eyes. The tips of her limbs are a banana-yellow. She is likely based on a Squirrel Monkey. Shari wears the Silk Bloom Tee in New Leaf, and a blue Garden Tank in New Horizons. She carries a Lacy Parasol as her umbrella.
Below is a brief description of the sisterly personality. For more information, click here.
Shari is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Shari will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. Like all sisterly villagers, Shari is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Shari has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.
Shari will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Shari 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.
In New Leaf, Shari's house has an exotic theme. She owns many items from the Cabana Series, including the bed, the screen, the chair, and the table. She also owns an Exotic Lamp, a sitar, and a conga drum. Shari has a Retro Stereo that plays K.K. Oasis.
In New Horizons, Shari has predominantly purple and black furniture. From the Rattan set, she has a rattan vanity, rattan armchair, rattan low table, rattan waste bin, rattan wardrobe, and a rattan end table with a rattan towel basket. She also has a black marble long bathtub, a purple rose bed, hanging terrarium, and an iron shelf. For wallpaper, she uses the Purple Desert-Tile Wall, and for flooring, she uses the Rosewood Flooring.
Shari's yellow hands and feet are likely to be a reference to the fact that squirrel monkeys (on which her design is based) urinate on their hands and feet to wash themselves and mark their territory.
