Patty is a peppy cow villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in every game. Her name likely comes from "beef patty," which relates to her species, and her catchphrase, "how-now," may come from "How now brown cow," a phrase that helps children learn rounded vowel sounds.

In New Horizons, Patty has the fashion hobby and will be more frequently seen visiting Able Sisters and commenting on the player's fashion, sometimes giving them clothes that match their current outfit in color or style. She may be found carrying around a purse or wearing accessories and clothing different from their initial or gifted outfits.


Patty in Animal Crossing.


Patty is a chocolate brown cow with a peach snout, yellow horns and hooves as well as a tuft of brunette hair.


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

Patty is a peppy villager, meaning she will appear quite stubborn and forgetful, usually forgetting any small arguments she may have had with other villagers and the player, she will also appear very hyper. As a peppy villager, she will have an interest in sugary snacks, and reading Ms. Nintendique magazine - a magazine read by both peppy and snooty villagers. She, like other peppy villagers, may claim to have appeared in the magazine.
