Baabara is a snooty sheep villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in every game to date except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Her name is a portmanteau of baa, onomatopoeia for the sound sheep make, and the given name Barbara. Likewise, her catchphrase is a portmanteau of baa and darling.

In New Horizons, Baabara has the fashion hobby and may be seen wearing a pink purse with a white flower on it, as well as a specific headwear or accessory item.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Baabara from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Baabara has a brown-skinned sheep with 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.

Personality[edit]

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.

Controversy[edit]

Baabara saying the modified greeting and catchphrase.

Baabara was featured on gaming news websites in December 2008 when Nintendo released fourteen review copies of Animal Crossing: Wild World to the press to demonstrate its player data transfer feature with Animal Crossing: City Folk. Unbeknownst to Nintendo, Baabara's catchphrase was tampered with; what should have been "daahling" was "Ñ****á", a racial slur. The slur was modified, likely to bypass the game's profanity filter, which prevents players from setting catchphrases and greetings to anything deemed inappropriate. Additionally, her greeting was changed to ❤ u long time!!, a quote from the film Full Metal Jacket that is used in a sexual context. Nintendo responded by issuing an apology to the media and recalling all offending copies of the game from the press, explaining that the game's Wi-Fi features (which allow catchphrases to be spread) were to blame.[1]
