Pavé is a peacock in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk. He appears as the holiday character corresponding with Festivale. He is energetic, likes to dance, and refers to himself in the third person.


In City Folk[edit]

Pavé first appears in Animal Crossing: City Folk as the host of Festivale, demanding a specific type of Candy from the player. Candy is won during the events of Festivale and can be supplied to Pavé, which results in Pavé giving the player furniture from the Pavé Series.

Each color of candy represents a type of feeling/mentality. These are described below:

  • Green Candy - Calm/relax. Pavé announces he is hyper (possibly after eating Blue Candy) and asks for Green Candy to calm down. "Relaxing, like a stroll in park! The green kind!"
  • Blue Candy - Refreshing. Pavé says he is getting tired. "Refreshing, like cold wind! The blue kind!"
  • Red Candy - Explosive. Pavé demands something juicy. "The red kind, like a strawberry explosion!"
  • Yellow Candy - Zesty. Pavé announces that he has run out of "zest" in his dance, "Puckery, like lemonade! The yellow kind!"

In New Leaf[edit]

Pavé returns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf once again during Festivale. In this game, Pavé requests feathers rather than candy from the player. These feathers come in different colors; white, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and rainbow. He will only take the feathers if the player gives him three of the same color; however, a single rainbow feather, despite not being very rare, will work instead of three of the requested color. The feathers are found floating around the player's town, and are caught with a net. Like previous games, he will dance and reward the player with furniture if given feathers, and will dance more vigorously if given a rainbow one.

When the player asks Isabelle to read the town's citizen satisfaction, she may read a quote by Pavé if the town has a perfect rating: "Woohoo! What a glorious town! Pavé wants to just sprawl out right here and caress the ground... Viva <town>!"

In New Horizons[edit]

Pavé during Festivale in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

While initially absent from Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Pavé was added in the 1.7.0 Free Update, where he returns as the host of Festivale. [1] Like in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, he gives the player furniture from the Festivale Series in exchange for three feathers of a specific color.

Pavé's Poster in New Horizons.

Pavé's Poster can be obtained from Nook Shopping after inviting him to Photopia via his amiibo.

Prior to its removal in version 2.0, when the player scans Pavé's amiibo card and tries to invite him, he will say:

Ahahaha! You are Player. What do you want with Pavé?
Oh! Pavé is invited to your campsite? It is very unfortunate for you, but Pavé cannot go.
The dance, it calls Pavé to all corners of the globe. And Pavé heeds the call. Pavé must DANCE!
Still, do not cry. Instead, strengthen your hips! When Festivale comes again, Pavé calls on YOU to dance!

In Pocket Camp[edit]

Pavé makes a minor appearance in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp as part of the Pavé's Dance Stage item. If this item is crafted, Pavé may appear at the player's campsite. Pavé also appears as the host of the "Viva Festivale with Pavé" garden event.

Other appearances[edit]

Pavé appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

    RV in Welcome amiibo[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, the Berliner in Pavé's RV is a reference to his Japanese name, Berlina (ベルリーナ), which is nearly identical to the Japanese word for Berliner (ベルリーナー).

    • All of the colors of feathers in New Leaf that appear are present on Pavé's feathers.
    • Pave appears on the album cover of "K.K. Samba."
    • Pavé's name may originate from the word "paw" (pronounced "pav"), which is Polish for "peacock" and another Polish word "pavané," which is a traditional dance. It may also originate from Pavo, the bird genus which contains the Indian peafowl and green peafowl. Additionally, it may originate from the pavé method of jewelry making, where many small gemstones are set closely together on an object's surface, a reference to the character's outfit.
