Plucky (パタヤ, Pataya) is a chicken villager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name comes from the word "pluck", coming from the word plucking the feathers, once the chicken is made into food. When she debuted in Doubutsu no Mori+, she was a peppy islander. After Doubutsu no Mori e+, Plucky would be absent from any Animal Crossing series media until she made an appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, this time as an uchi villager.



Plucky is a brown chicken with a pale maroon beak. The top of her head is white,She has a red comb and wears a white flower on her head. She also has white eyelashes and her feet orange striped with black.


Plucky has two different personalities throughout the series. She debuted as a peppy islander in Doubutsu no Mori+, and later became an uchi villager in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

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

From her debut in Doubutsu no Mori+, until Doubutsu no Mori e+, Plucky is a peppy islander. Plucky will have the tendency to overreact in conversations about trivial subjects such as appearing in competitions and the chance of her losing. This sometimes triggers her to ask for a certain item of clothing or furniture which she needs to enter a competition. She, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. She will also have a short attention span, which means she will soon forget arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

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

Plucky reappears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf with an uchi (or "big sister") personality. She acts similar to a snooty villager, but she is more caring toward the player. She sometimes disagrees with cranky and snooty villagers because they spread rumors and may seem offensive. However, she will usually get along with lazy, jock, peppy and other uchi villagers.
