Yuka (Japanese name: ユーカリ, Yūkari) is a Snooty Koala Bear Villager who made her earliest appearances in Animal Forest e+[JPN]/Animal Crossing (GCN)[NA], followed by two later reappearances in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Yuka is a rather unpredictable Villager who can be found to switch moods at the drop of a hat. One moment, she could be subtly keeping to herself, and the next, she's out and about criticizing everyone she runs into while keeping her nose upturned the whole time! As a Player, it will prove rather tricky to make quick friends with Yuka, but constant persistence will eventually earn such a "right". This resident can appear rather cold and uncaring towards others most of the time, often seeming to care more about herself than anything else. She is very critical of others in terms of their fashion choice(s), constantly putting Normal and Peppy Villagers down while shallowly praising fellow Snooty Villagers. Despite all this, Yuka is actually a rather sensitive individual deep down which is proven by the fact that she constantly brings up her never-seen "boyfriend" from time to time yet never goes into great detail about him(before any serious questions can be asked, that is).
Yuka is a dark-blue coloured koala bear with a patch of neatly-combed fur on top of her head(which is a slight shade lighter than the rest of her regular fur), large, white ears, and a large, rectangular, light-brown nose. She has big, round eyes with equally-sized black pupils and purple eyeshadow on her eyelids. While her smile gives off a rather "Normal" vibe, her "Snooty"-seeming eyes speak different.
 Name Meaning
"Yuka" is more than likely a reference to the Japanese term, "yukka", which translates to "eucalyptus" in English. This is a plant that real life koala bears often eat.
