Puddles is a peppy frog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. She is the only peppy frog in the series. Her name relates to her species, which is known to sit in pools of water, like puddles. Her catchphrase, "splish," is an onomatopoeia associated with the sound of jumping in water, deriving from "splish, splash."

In New Horizons, Puddles 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 Puddles from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Puddles is a frog with different shades of pink coloring her body—a dominant dark pink covering most of her body and a lighter pink around her mouth and eyes. She has deep-blue eyes and a V-shaped mouth.

Personality[edit]

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

As a peppy villager, Puddles will always appear to be in a good mood and be outside for the majority of the day. She will get along with other villagers including the player, making it easy to befriend her and gain her picture in Animal Crossing: Wild World. She will easily get upset, but due to a short attention span she will forget ever having the conversation. Like all peppy villagers, she dreams of becoming famous in the future. She will get on well with normal, lazy, and peppy villagers, but may annoy snooty and cranky villagers with her upbeat personality.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Puddles 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.
