Main Appearances
Other Appearances

Merengue (パティ, Pati) is a normal rhino villager in the Animal Crossing series. She was introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Her name comes from "meringue", a type of dessert, referencing her appearance. Her Japanese name comes from "pâtissière", a French word for a pastry chef.


Concept artwork

Merengue is a pink rhino with white hooves and hair. Her horn is red with dark red spots and is surrounded by green semicircles so it resembles a strawberry.


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

As a normal villager, Merengue will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player and other villagers. Like other normal villagers, she will have an unseen obsession with hygiene and cleanliness, which she mentions when the player visits her in her home. Other than her hygiene interests, she will appear neutral and open-minded when discussing hobbies. She will get along easily with other villagers, but may conflict with lazy villagers when they talk about food and leading her on to suggesting making them dinner or lunch.
