Nan is a normal goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and appears in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Her name may come from nanny, another word for a female goat, and her catchphrase may relate to a baby goat, which is called a kid.

In New Horizons, Nan has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Nan is a gray goat with pale freckles on her cheek. 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.

Personality[edit]

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

Nan is a normal villager. 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.

Villager information[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

In New Horizons, if Nan 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.

Her actual house features a nearly identically-mirrored layout of Chevre's house, with different color variations for the furniture and different furniture in the music player slot. Nan's house features Chevre's Photo while Chevre's house features Nan's Photo.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Nan's amiibo card artwork, she has what appears to be a black goatee that is the same color as the rest of her fur. This is likely an error, as the goatee is absent in-game.
  • The presence of Chevre's Photo in Nan's New Horizons house and vice-versa may be a reference to the Japanese children song "Nani-tte nan-nano," which is about a black goat and a white goat sending letters to each other.
    • Chevre and Nan's houses are also almost the same, with only the colors and the layout mirrored.
