Baabara is a sheep villager with a snooty personality who has appeared in all of the Animal Crossing series games so far. Her name is a play on words of the name 'Barbara', and the sound sheep make, which is "baa". Combining the two makes "Baabara". Her initial phrase, "daahling", is also a joke on the noise sheep make, and the word "darling". Her Japanese initial phrase, andu, is the Japanese pronunciation of the French words un and duex, meaning "one" and "two," which is a play on her Japanese name, Trois, the French word for "three."

Baabara has brown arms, face, and legs, which contrast with her puffy, pale blue coat. She has purple horns, which blend in with the pale blue tones in her woolly coat. Her eyes usually remain closed, but she will rarely open them. Her eyes are black with a brown sclera.


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

Baabara is a snooty character, which means she will appear rude and arrogant when talking to the player. She will talk about the style and appearance of other villagers, including the player, giving her opinion on what they are wearing. She will warm up to the player after some time talking to them, sharing any gossip and asking them for their opinion on what they are wearing and holding. 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.


The Baabara controversy

Baabara was the center of attention on gaming review websites when Nintendo released fourteen review copies of Animal Crossing: Wild World to the press. Little did Nintendo know that Baabara's initial phrase was tampered with; what should have been "daahling" was "Ñ****", or "n****", a highly offensive racial slur. The mistake was changed and an official apology was sent out to the press who received the games, explaining that the game's Wi-Fi features (which allow catchphrases, appropriate or not, to be spread) are to blame.[1]
