Goats are a species of villager in the Animal Crossing series. They have heads that are wider at the top, hooves, small ears, and short, slightly backwards-curving horns. Along with this, five of the goats have a beard, including Velma, the only female goat with this trait. Several goats were removed after Doubutsu no Mori e+, leaving Chevre as the only goat to appear in all games and Nan as the only other goat to appear in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. However, many goats returned in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, including Billy in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, and the goat Pashmina made her first appearance in this game.
There are ten goat villagers so far, of which six are male, and four are female. In addition, Iggy and Sven are the only goats introduced prior to New Horizons that are absent from Welcome amiibo, while Chevre, Kidd and Sherb are the only goats present in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Of the goats, two are jocks, two are normal, two are lazy, one is snooty, one is cranky, one is sisterly, and one is smug, though was previously lazy. Currently there are no peppy goats.
