Jambette (エスメラルダ, Esmeralda) is a normal, frog villager in the Animal Crossing series. As a normal villager, she will appear hospitable towards the player and be easy to befriend. Jambette is a French name meaning "leggy," a reference to the stereotype that the French love to eat frog legs. Despite her name, Jambette's most recognizable feature is her bright pink lipstick. Her Japanese name, Esmeralda, means "emerald", referring to her green color. Her initial catchphrase is a play on words, combining the words "croak" and "okay". She is absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World but reappears in Animal Crossing: City Folk.



Jambette is a green frog with light green cheeks, pink lipstick, blue eyeliner, and black eyelashes. Her appearance on first approach might make the player believe she is a snooty villager. She initially wears the Prism Shirt, which is white with multicolored cubes on it.


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


Jambette has a normal personality, meaning that she will be nice and mother-like to the player. She will be easy to befriend and she will have an obsession with hygiene. Jambette is a normal villager, so she will be open to all different personalities, meaning she will get along with most villagers. However when talking with lazy villagers, the lazy villager might lead onto her making them dinner.
