Tangy is a peppy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. Her name is derived from tangerine, a citrus fruit similar to oranges, which relates to her appearance, as well as tangy, an adjective used to describe those fruits. Her Japanese catchphrase, "mikan," is a type of mandarin orange.

In New Horizons, Tangy has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tangy from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Tangy is a cat with an orange fruit appearance, as well as a green leaf on her head, similar to Tank. The insides of her ears are pink. Her eyes seem to be looking southeast, but she will become cross-eyed when looking up or down. She has small indents all over her body, making her resemble an orange, tangerine, or a clementine (which are all tangy fruits, hence her name).

Personality[edit]

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.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Tangy 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.

    Other appearances[edit]

    In Sweet Day[edit]

    Tangy appears in the Nintendo Land game Animal Crossing: Sweet Day as one of the 6 playable characters' costumes. In the game, whoever is player 4 will dress up in a Tangy costume.
