Other Appearances

Joan is a special visitor who comes to the player's town each Sunday morning (6 AM to 12 PM) to sell turnips. She is a brown boar with large white tusks carrying a basket on her back with white turnips inside. She wears ragged blue clothes and a small, blue bandana on her head. In Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Joan only sells one type of turnip, however, in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, she sells two types of turnips.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, her role of selling turnips is instead fulfilled by her young granddaughter, Daisy Mae. Daisy Mae often refers to Joan indirectly as her "Gram-Gram", but whether she will make any future appearances in the game is currently unknown.

History[edit]

Doubutsu no Mori and Animal Crossing[edit]

Joan PG.png

Joan is first featured in Doubutsu no Mori, as well as its updated GameCube version Animal Crossing. In both games, she appears in town every Sunday before noon (12 PM), selling white turnips to the player. Unlimited white turnips can be bought each week from Joan, which can be sold to Tom Nook, which will have different prices depending on the "Stalk Market". These turnips are only profitable between Monday and Saturday.

If the player travels on the Train, Joan can be seen sleeping in the background, occasionally waking up in surprise, before going back to sleep.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

Joan WW.png

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, she continues to sell white turnips, though she now also sells red turnip seeds for 1,000 Bells which will need to be planted like flowers, and be watered each day so they can grow to their full potential and later sold to Tom Nook for profit. Only one red turnip can be sold to player(s) each week.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Joan CF.png

Joan returns once again in Animal Crossing: City Folk, functionally no different than her appearance in Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Joan no longer sells red turnips. However, she will let the player buy more than 990 turnips, unlike Wild World and City Folk. Reese now runs the Stalk Market, at Re-Tail.

Joan can be asked to explain her business and turnips. She wishes not to explain how it works, but will not complain if prompted.

Other Appearances[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Joan Trophy Brawl.png #280 Joan
Investments in town are made by buying and selling turnips. Joan's an elderly boar who comes to town every Sunday morning to trade in these valuable vegetables. She's easily recognizable by her bandana, work pants, and the basket she carries on her back. Her down-to-earth speech endears her to all her customers. She's been in the turnip business for 60 years.

NTSC-U: Joan has been in the business of selling turnips for about 60 years now, and she'll happily explain the basics when you talk to her. Taking the risk is entirely up to you, though. If you take the plunge, you'll want to check the prices often. It doesn't hurt to ask your friends about their prices too.

Trivia[edit]

  • Joan is one of the four characters in the series with a voice specific to themselves: Farley (although Smug villagers now have Farley's voice tone), Joan, Luna and Lloid. Joan's voice is much lower and gruffer than that of the rest of the female characters.
  • Joan is the second character to appear in Doubutsu no Mori, Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+. She appears in the background of the train sleeping after K.K. Slider introduces the game.
  • Joan can be pushed around without getting angry. Additionally, she is immune to pitfall seeds as she does not fall into them when pushed over one.
  • Sow Joan is a pun on the real life stock market index, Dow Jones.
