Main Appearances
Other Appearances

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 name comes from "hundred percent" (ヒャクパーセント, hyaku pāsento), as in "100% pure fruit juice"; this phrase is also her Japanese picture quote. Her Japanese catch phrase, "mikan," means Tangerine.

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. 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). Her initial clothing is the Chain-Gang Shirt, which is horizontally striped with chalk gray and white.


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.

Her house has a citrus theme, which relates to her appearance. She has a pineapple bed, orange chair, lemon table, pear wardrobe, apple clock, pear dresser, and a lime chair. Her wallpaper is the citrus wall and the flooring is the citrus carpet. She has a Kiddie Stereo which plays Señor K.K.. If the player visits her on her birthday, she will talk about the time her sister was chased and nearly eaten by a dog. In Animal Crossing, she has a mix of blue and citrus furniture.

Tangy's house in New Leaf is relatively the same as it was in Animal Crossing. This time, it also has some Exotic furniture, a mega Dekkoid, a new stereo and a guitar.
