Bertha is a normal hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. She appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. Her name may come from "Big Bertha," a term for something unusually large, relating to the size of hippos. She shares her catchphrase with Zucker, a lazy octopus villager.

In New Horizons, Bertha has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Bertha from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Bertha is a teal, black-eyed hippo with the insides of her ears and mouth colored orange. The back of her head is a royal blue color. The tips of her arms and legs are white, resembling hooves. Her tail has thin black stripes around it. She has flaring nostrils, and pointy ears.

Personality[edit]

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

Bertha has a normal personality. She is shy, but very caring. When she asks the player for favors, she often compliments their speed (even if it actually takes a while). She will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies - bug catching, fishing and fossil hunting. She may mention an unseen friend called Moppina in Wild World, an imaginary friend which comes from her hygiene and cleanliness concerns. She will get on well with smug, peppy and lazy villagers, appearing motherly or sisterly towards them. She may become upset when talking to a cranky villager, due to their cold nature. If the player makes her upset, she will bounce back and give them a present.

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Bertha is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, her house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Wooden Series. She cannot have her initial house interior unless she moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
