Maelle, pronounced "Ma-Ell", is a snooty duck in the Animal Crossing series, debuting in Animal Crossing as an islander. She reappears in Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where she is a villager. Her name, "Maelle", is French for "ambitious", a trait known among snooty villagers who wish to become famous or rich. Her Japanese name is also French, being the French pronunciation of "Anne." Her initial phrase, "duckling", reflects on her species. Her picture quote from Animal Crossing: Wild World may be a reference to when she was an islander.



Maelle PG.png

Maelle is a yellow duck with a bright red beak and webbed-feet. She wears green eyeshadow and maintains a lazy eyed expression. She has red hair and, as an islander in Animal Crossing, wears an orange flower, which is removed in other installments.


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

Maelle has a snooty personality, which means she will appear arrogant and snobbish towards the player and other villagers. She may appear friendly in some discussions, provided they do not insult her lifestyle. She finds appearance important and will get upset if someone criticizes her sense of style or fitness, which means a conversation between her a jock personality may leave either one upset or angry. She also may not get along with lazy villagers due to their conflicting lifestyles - lazy villagers having a strong interest in food or relaxing of which will make her uncomfortable, angry or upset when in conversation. She will upset peppy villagers, usually by gossiping about them, and finding small things to judge them on. She will get along well with normal, cranky, and other snooty villagers. Her attitude toward the player softens as she begins to know the player, but she will still retain some arrogance and subtle rudeness. Maelle can also spread rumors about villagers and other players calling them a "bell pincher" or "broke joker" in some cases.

Fruit Allergy[edit]

As an islander, Maelle has a fruit that she loves to eat, alongside one she is allergic to. Feeding her each will increase or decrease the chance of Bells being dropped, respectively. In Maelle's case, these fruits would be apples and oranges, respectively.
