Bubbles is a peppy hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after her appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, she remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Her name may refer to how hippos blow bubbles while underwater.

In New Horizons, Bubbles 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 Bubbles from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Bubbles is an orange hippo with small black circles for eyes and flaring nostrils. Her hands and feet are tan. The inside of her ears and mouth are pink.

Personality[edit]

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

As a peppy villager, Bubbles will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects such as appearing in competitions and the chance of her losing. This sometimes triggers her to ask for a certain item of clothing or furniture which she needs to enter a competition. She, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. She will also have a short attention span, which means she will soon forget arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed. She may ask the player; "Sooo, how am I dressed today?" The player is presented with a slide-bar indicating Kinda slobby... and Super formal! Moving the bar close to Super formal! will make her happy.

    Bubbles's house features several fruit-themed furniture items. It has the same layout as Kit and Moe's in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

    In New Leaf[edit]

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Bubbles 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 Block 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.

    Profile: Bubbles is incredibly enthusiastic, but it's a bit of a problem in social situations. She tends to get right up in people's faces when she talks to them...which wouldn't be a problem if her nostrils weren't so enormous.
