Maple is a normal bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Her name may come from maple trees, which are known to bear light-brown leaves, referring to Maple's fur color. Her catchphrase, "honey," refers to how bears enjoy eating honey.

In New Horizons, Maple has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Maple from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Maple is a brown bear cub with a cream-colored muzzle, hands, and feet. She has bangs, a black nose, and pale red blush. In Doubutsu no Mori, Maple's eyes are much smaller and more displaced, her muzzle is instead tan, her blush is smaller, and her nose is larger. Moreover, she has dark brown eyebrows, and she wears a red ribbon on the back of her head.

Personality[edit]

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

Maple is a kind, caring and calm character like all normal villagers. Like all normal villagers, she will easily become upset or offended by other villagers, particularly lazy villagers who mislead her in conversation and cranky villagers who have a rude, scheming nature. She enjoys the usual hobbies, such as; fishing and bug catching, usually to keep her active. As with all other villagers, she will enjoy the player's company at her house where she may tell the player to "ignore the mess" – a concern she shares with other normal villagers. In Wild World, she will talk about an unseen character called Moppina, a mop referred to as her friend which reflects on the normal personality type who has hygiene and cleanliness concerns. She will get along well with other normal villagers and peppy villagers, appearing mother-like in conversation. She will also get on well with snooty and smug villagers, who enjoy the good natured personality of the normal villager, who often compliment them.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Maple is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, her house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Wooden Series. She cannot have her initial house interior unless she moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
