Tammy is a big sister bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. She is the only big sister bear cub in the series.

In New Horizons, Tammy has the play hobby and can run around with her arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Artwork of Tammy from New Leaf.

Tammy is a dominantly bright yellow bear cub with a brunette tuft of hair. She has a white muzzle, hands, and feet. She has an orange-colored blush on her cheeks and pink inner ears. She has black laid-back, half-full eyes with three eyelashes each, and pink eyeshadow covering her eyelids. She has a wide cat-like smile under her black nose.


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

Tammy is a big sister villager, meaning she is rather blunt, sporty, sister-like and rather tomboyish. She enjoys giving the player advice, mainly on how to win fights, which brings out her very caring, supportive side. Tammy may get along with jock and lazy villagers, though she might find it difficult to converse with snooty villagers, who are quite vain and sometimes rude. She is rather easy to befriend, and is a lot more caring and open about her feelings when befriended.

Villager information[edit]
