Penelope is a peppy mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. Her catchphrase is a reference to her unique lack of ears and instead a bow.

In New Horizons, Penelope has the fashion hobby and may be seen wearing a pink purse with a white flower on it, as well as a specific headwear or accessory item.



Artwork of Penelope from New Leaf.

Penelope is a light gray, almost mint-colored mouse with blonde hair. Her appearance is rather unique for a mouse, as she lacks ears and has a pink bow in their place. She has a dark gray nose, and a perky smile showing her teeth. The tips of her paws and legs are also a dark gray. Her eyes are of an oval shape, she has black pupils and a set of three eyelashes on both her eyes. Her tail is gray up until New Horizons where it is changed to pink.


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

Penelope is a peppy villager, meaning she is overly energetic, hyper at times and generally happy. She is very friendly, eager to make new friends and as a result, is quite easy to befriend. She loves attention, dancing, popularity and gossiping, but dislikes it when other villagers gossip about her. She is competitive, open about her feelings and talkative, which might cause other villagers to find her annoying. She is quite generous, but is easily angered when disappointed or ignored.
