Pinky is a peppy bear villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Her name relates to the color of her fur, and her catchphrase, wah, may also relate to how, in Japan, wan is used for the sound a panda makes. Her Japanese catchphrase, wao, reflects this.

In New Horizons, Pinky 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Pinky from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Sticking with the usual pattern of a panda bear, Pinky has white-colored fur covering her face, but going against the typical fur coloration, she has pink fur on her ears, eyes, shoulders, arms and legs. The pink coloration fits with her given name. Her ears are pale yellow on the inside. She has a small tuft of hair that matches the color of her white fur, which is outlined in a pale pink. In Doubutsu no Mori, her eyes, eye markings, nose, and mouth are much larger.

Personality[edit]

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

As a peppy villager, Pinky will have the tendency to overreact in conversations about trivial subjects such as appearing in competitions and the chance of her losing, which sometimes triggers her to ask for a certain item of clothing or furniture, which she needs to enter a competition. She is very rarely discouraged from her hobbies, which include hunting for fossils, fishing, and clothing. She may sometimes cause arguments between herself and another villager, usually another peppy villager or normal villager. She is very kind and if the player talks to her sometimes she will give the player her photo. Pinky will occasionally talk to the player about her dreams of being a famous pop star.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Pinky 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 Block Series. She cannot have her initial house interior unless she moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
