Chai is a peppy elephant villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. She is one of the Sanrio crossover villagers and is based on the dog character Cinnamoroll, sharing the same birthday as him.[1] Chai's catchphrase, "flap flap," refers to how Cinnamoroll can use his ears to fly.[1]

In New Horizons, Chai has the play hobby and can run around with her arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Chai is a blue elephant with a pink teacup on her head and yellow tips on her trunk, feet, and hands, as well as a white belly, hair, and eyelids. She has Cinnamoroll on her shirt, the Sanrio character her design is based on.

Personality[edit]

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

Chai is a peppy villager, which means she will appear over-excited to see the player and most other villagers. Like all peppy villagers, she will appear childish and immature, usually asking the player for items they want. She will enjoy the usual hobbies and will tell the player that when she is bug catching, she is looking for a particular bug that may look nice in her home. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly the lazy, normal, big sister, smug and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers who are known to appear older than other villagers. Due to the honest nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" they are due to her opposing, upbeat personality. She will easily get upset in conversation when it is not going her way, but will forget ever having the conversation due to her short attention span.

Villager information[edit]

In Welcome amiibo[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, Chai can only move to the player's town if her amiibo card is scanned.

Chai's skill of "napping" refers to Cinnamoroll's habit of sleeping on the laps of the customers at Cafe Cinnamon.[1] Her goal of "café owner" refers to how Cinnamoroll was adopted by the owner of Cafe Cinnamon and became the café's popular mascot.[1]
