Epona is a peppy horse villager who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. She can only move in if the player scans a Sheik, Ocarina of Time Link, or Rider Link amiibo. She bears a resemblance to Link's horse of the same name from The Legend of Zelda series. Her birthday is also a reference to the release date of the Japanese version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.



Epona is a brown horse that bears a strong resemblance to the The Legend of Zelda horse of the same name, being based on her appearance.


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

As a peppy villager, Epona will always be in a good mood. She will get along other villagers including the player, making it easy to befriend her and gain her picture in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. As with other peppy villagers, she loves candy and sweet food. Peppy villagers take offense quite easily and may walk away upset rather than angry when the wrong things are said in a conversation between her and the player or another villager. She may be the target for cranky villager jokes and pranks.
