Tangy is a peppy, cat villager that has appeared in almost every game in the Animal Crossing series, with the exception of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Her name is derived from "Tangerine," a citrus fruit similar to oranges and clementines, as well as the adjective used to describe those fruits. Her Japanese catch phrase, "mikan," means Tangerine.

In New Horizons, Tangy 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.

Tangy is a cat with an orange fruit appearance, with a green leaf on her head. Her perky, chipper ears stand tall and are pink inside. Her eyes seem to be looking south-east, but she will become cross-eyed when looking up or down. She has small indents all over her body, making her look like an orange, tangerine, or a clementine (which are all tangy fruits, hence her name).


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

Tangy, as a peppy villager, 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 in Wild World. 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 in Wild World. Often she says she's "feeling kinda bloated" because she "ate, like, 50 pounds of <food>." 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.
