Tipper (まきば, Makiba) is a snooty cow villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World. Her name is derived from cow tipping, the activity of sneaking up to a sleeping, upright cow and pushing it over for fun. Her catchphrase, "pushy", may also refer to this. Her Japanese name, Makiba, means "ranch".




Tipper is a Holstein cow who is white with a large black patch over her right eye and never appears to have her eyes fully open. She has yellow on the tip of her hooves and has yellow horns with ginger orange stripes on them. The inside of her ears are sky blue. Her original shirt is the rainbow shirt.


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

Tipper is a snooty villager, which means she will appear arrogant and rude to the character at first. She usually will befriend you eventually once you talk to her a lot. She may tell the player she wanted to be an actress but she was not courageous enough. She will get along with cranky and other snooty villagers due to their rough and abrasive personalities. Lazy, jock and peppy villagers may get angry when she talks to them, as she usually walks away sad after conversation.
