Other Appearances

Nan is a normal, goat villager who made her first appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, where like all other villagers who debuted in said game, could only be moved into the player′s town by scanning her e-Reader card. Her name may be a shortened form of "nanny", another word for a female goat, and her catchphrase, "kid", could relate to a baby goat, which is called a kid. Her picture quote also has a play on words, Nanny Nanny boo boo is the skipping song - she uses it because an adult female goat is called a Nanny goat.



Nan is a gray goat with pale freckles on her cheek. She initially wears a citrus gingham. She has pink inside her ears and orange and yellow-striped horns on her head. Her hooves are tipped pink, the same color as the inside of her ears.


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

Nan is one of the normal villagers. Nan will sometimes become very interested in clothes after staying for a while. She is sweet to players and is usually in a good mood, but if the player does not go to their house on time when they invite Nan over in Wild World, she will be angry with them. Like Chevre, Nan is ever so friendly; when the player feels down, she usually helps them back up again.
