Bertha is a normal hippo villager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name refers to "Big Bertha", a name commonly given to something that is unusually large. Her Japanese name refers to red bean paste, also known as anko; this relates to her Japanese picture quote, "dango over flowers", as dango is commonly made with red bean paste. Bertha was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.




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. Her initial outfit is the Pink Tartan in Animal Crossing and the Funky Dot Shirt in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.


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 make her upset, she will bounce back and give them a present.
