Jambette is a normal frog villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game except 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 likely a reference to frog legs being a delicacy in some regions, including France. Her initial catchphrase is a portmanteau of the words croak and okay.

In New Horizons, Jambette 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.


Artwork of Jambette from Animal Crossing.


Jambette is a green frog with light green cheeks and light green spots on her arms and legs. She has large, plump lips on which she wears hot pink lipstick. Her eyes are half open, revealing her eyelids, adorned with light blue eyeshadow, as well as her long eyelashes. Her eyes are also black. Though her personality is normal, it would be easy to mistake Jambette for a snooty villager given her appearance and love of fashion.


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.
