Merry is a peppy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Wild World. Her name refers to her personality.

In New Horizons, Merry 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Merry is a cream-colored cat with short, light brown hair. She has a small pink nose, pink blush, wide-open black eyes which are constantly facing up, and two eyelashes. The insides of her ears are purple, which gradually becomes more akin to lavender in the most inner section. Her mouth seems be in the shape of a smile at all times, even when she is angry or sad. Except in New Horizons, where she may not smile when she is briefly looking away or briefly looks at a nearby flower. She also has a slight double chin, something that is not shared with other villagers.

Personality[edit]

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

Merry is a peppy villager, meaning that she will be outgoing, somewhat competitive, and friendly towards the player and other villagers. She will get along with normal, lazy, jock, and other peppy villagers, but could annoy snooty and cranky villagers who will find her rude, especially if she criticizes them. She will partake in the regular hobbies including fishing, bug catching, clothing, and fossil hunting.

Villager information[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Merry can only move to the player's town if her e-Reader card is scanned. Her card was one of the six starter cards bundled with the game, alongside Walker, Maggie, Rod, Angus, and Willow.

    Favorite phrase: にゃん nyan ("meow")
    Profile: 異性のちょっとした仕草に、ドキッとすることってありますよね。でも「ちょっとした」ってとこがポイント。狙ってやると逆効果です。 There may be times when you get a thrill by a small gesture from the opposite sex. But "small" is the key. If you aim for it, it will have an opposite effect.
    Favorite saying: 目病み女に風邪引き男 A man with a cold to an eye-sick woman
    (A man who has a cold will be attractive to a woman who has an eye disease, and vice versa, because the man will find the woman's eyes attractive, and the woman will find the man's voice attractive)[2]
