Ruby is a peppy rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games.

In New Horizons, Ruby has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item she is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Ruby from Wild World.

Ruby is an albino rabbit with white fur, red eyes, three freckles on each cheek, and melon-pink inside her ears. She perpetually carries a neutral expression, showing emotion only through her eyes. The only time she changes her expression is when she is thinking or upset.

Personality[edit]

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

As a peppy villager, Ruby will always appear to be in a good mood. She will get along with other villagers including the player, making it easy to befriend her and gain her picture. She will enjoy the usual hobbies, and may ask the player for bugs or fish that she finds cute or has read about in Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty and peppy villagers. 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 other peppy villagers, but may annoy snooty and cranky villagers with her upbeat personality.

House[edit]

In each game since her debut, Ruby's house interior is moon-themed. This is a likely reference to Japanese myth of the moon rabbit, in which the dark side of the moon looks like a rabbit making mochi (a Japanese snack associated with the New Year). This house trait is shared with Carmen in Animal Crossing: City Folk, another rabbit villager who similarly has a moon-themed interior.
