Sylvia is a kangaroo villager from the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as a snooty villager and then reappeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as a sisterly villager. Additionally, she is the only sisterly kangaroo. Her initial catchphrase, "boing", is a reference to hopping, the primary means of locomotion for kangaroos.

In New Horizons, Sylvia has the music hobby and will be more frequently seen singing or dancing. If a stereo is set outside with a song playing, she will sing to the melody; if other instruments are set up, such as drums or guitars, she may play along.



Sylvia is a purple kangaroo with orange hair. She has pink spots on her cheeks, her feet and the bottom half of her tail are white, and her hands are tipped gray with white wrists.


In Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

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

In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Sylvia has a snooty personality, which means she will love make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, she will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jock villagers because they will question her on her physical appearance. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities. Sylvia's special talent is playing jacks.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

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

Starting with Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Sylvia has the sisterly personality, which means she will act like a tomboy and a big sister to the other villagers. She will get along with all villager types, but may have a falling out with a snooty or cranky villager. Her tomboyish nature is showcased when other villagers occasionally refer to Sylvia as a "he", and she mentions being involved in a turf war. Sylvia can get along well with a player, although she initially seems cold and distant, once you talk to her a few times, she becomes friendlier.
