Carmen is a peppy rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games.

In New Horizons, Carmen 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]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Carmen from City Folk.

Carmen is a dark brown rabbit with a white face and white tipped paws, tail, and nose, while the insides of her ears are aqua blue. She wears pink blush and appears to have hair that is swept to the side.

Personality[edit]

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

Carmen has a peppy personality, so she will be friendly and over-excited to see the player but will also overreact to the smallest things. Being a peppy villager, she will be open to all personalities and will get along with most villagers, but she may get upset when talking to snooty or cranky villagers. She will be very upbeat and never afraid to speak her mind.

House[edit]

In City Folk[edit]

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Carmen's moon-themed house interior is a likely reference to Japanese myth of the moon rabbit. According to the myth, the dark side of the moon looks like a rabbit making mochi (a Japanese snack associated with the New Year). This house trait is shared with Ruby, another rabbit villager, who similarly has a moon-themed interior.
