Francine is a snooty rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appears in Doubutsu no Mori e+ alongside her younger sister, Chrissy, and both have appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World. Her catchphrase, "karat", is a measure of gold, reflecting her snooty personality, and a play on "carrot".

In New Horizons, Francine 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]

Francine in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

Francine is a white rabbit with a blue polka dotted hood and blue tights, blue eye liner, blue and white polka dotted eyeshadow, and pink blush. She also has a lemon-yellow fringe to match her soft cloudy appearance, and a green nose which stands out from her cloudy complexion. She is almost identical in appearance to Chrissy.

Personality[edit]

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

As a snooty villager, Francine will appear rude and arrogant towards the player, but will accept the player as a friend despite continuing her typical, sly comments. Her attitude towards the player changes, as she begins to warm up to them, but she will still retain some arrogance and subtle rudeness. She may not get on with lazy, jock and big sister villagers, due to their conflicting lifestyles. She will also sometimes upset peppy villagers, usually by gossiping about them, and finding small things to judge them on. She will get along well with normal, cranky and other snooty villagers. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Francine will go to sleep at 2:00 AM and wake up at 9:30 AM.

In Happy Home Designer[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, Francine's thought bubble references Chrissy's thought bubble, in which Chrissy desires "polka dots on absolutely everything." Reflecting this, Francine's unlock items consist of a few furniture items from the Polka-Dot Series. She also unlocks Chrissy's Pic and Bubblegum K.K., items that feature Chrissy's visage. The Bunny C. Balloon and Bunny P. Balloon represent Francine and Chrissy respectively, as they are shaped like rabbit heads and match their respective fur colors.
