- "She's very gentle, kind, and calm. If you talk to her, it will feel like you've always been friends!"
- — Isabelle, talking about a Normal villager, Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Normal villagers (also known as sweet or sweetie villagers) are female characters in the Animal Crossing series. The name comes from their neutral opinion on things such as hobbies and other characters such as the player, villagers, and special visitors. They are the female equivalent to the male lazy villagers.
Normal villagers, despite being called "normal", are known for their sweet demure and naivete. Due to their all-around kindness, they get along with most villagers, even the ones with cranky and snooty personalities. They are also bookworms, and often discuss what they read with the player, as well as good cooks, often stating what snack would fit their mood. In this respect, they are the female counterpart to Lazy villagers. In Animal Crossing, Caroline, Faith, and June, the normal islanders, act down-to-earth in their speech, stating various "blessings" of the island and its surrounding landscape. They are also much more airheaded and childish, dreaming of living in fairy tales or remarking at how "magical" a piece of furniture is.
They usually go to sleep at 1:00 A.M. and wake up at 5:00 A.M. (In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, they instead go to sleep at 12:00 A.M. and wake up at 6:00 A.M.) According to them, they wake up so early because they believe sleeping is unhealthy (in actuality, the opposite is true). They are very rarely (if at all) angry and tend to take insults and disappointment easily, but will apologize even though they may not have done anything.
Below are some (not all) quotes made by normal villagers.
- "Hey <villager>, do you think we're too normal?"
"I don't know, why don't you ask <player>?"
"Ok, <player>, do you think that we're too normal?"
"Yeah, <villager>; I think we are too normal."
"Oh well. Maybe if everyone's crazy around town, we'll be the normal ones, and that will make us the special ones!"
- "What do you want? You want to talk? Because now is NOT a good time, you got that, <catchphrase>?"
