Main Appearances

Friga is a snooty, penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in every game so far. Friga may be named from "frigid," meaning cold, which relates to many typical penguins being Antarctic creatures. "Frigid" also means "stiff" or "formal", words which befit the overly formal lifestyles of snooty villagers.




Friga is light, porcelain pink-skinned and a dark blue penguin with turquoise blue eye liner, mascara, and pink blush. She has black hair on her forehead that is combed down into a snazzy, modular way and her eyes gleam into a fabulous disposition. Her flippers (arms) are the same color as her back and tipped with a light pink crescent moon shape. She has yellow-orange feet and a large beak. Her appearance in Doubutsu no Mori has many differences; her face is dark pink, her eyes are smaller, her hair is purple, and she has orange-reddish blush. She initially wears the Cozy Sweater, although in Wild World and later games, she sports the Candy Gingham shirt.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.

Friga, as a snooty villager, may show disapproval or contempt over other villagers. She will sometimes tells the player to knock before entering her home or give her a present when coming in. If she talks to other characters, she may sometimes "fancy them mad" because of her impudent observations. Like Aurora, she knows she is a penguin, but unlike her, she gets upset because she says, "Nothing's more pitiful than a bird that can't fly. Oh, there are times when I wish I weren't one." Gwen may also sometimes say this, but Cube and Roald do not seem to care that they are penguins at all. Friga loves collecting white furniture and will ask the player to get some for her. She has many hobbies and likes to tell the player about interesting things she does, delighting in the idea that she may be acting surprising. She will say things such as "Oh, you didn't know I did [x]?" While Friga may start off being condescending and shallow, she will quickly become more mellow and friendly, sharing in her interests with the player.
