Jambette is a normal frog villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game except for Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Jambette's name is French—"jambe" meaning "leg" and "-ette" being a common diminutive suffix for female names. This is a reference to the stereotype that the French often eat frog legs. Despite her name, Jambette's most recognizable feature is not her legs, but her large lips and bright pink lipstick.

Her initial catchphrase is a combination of the words "croak" and "okay."

Jambette is a green frog with light green cheeks, pink lipstick, blue eyeliner, and black eyelashes. Her makeup, which is uncommon in normal villagers, may give the impression that she is a snooty villager instead.


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.

She now has a Classic Sofa, a Classic Vanity, and a Classic Buffet with an Aroma Pot placed on top of it. She retains her three plants, and her Phonograph, which still plays K.K. Country.
