Velma is a snooty goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. She first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after her appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, she remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf. She is the only snooty goat in the series. Her English name is based on her resemblance to the Scooby-Doo cartoon character named Velma Dinkley. Her catchphrase, "blih," is from the noise goats make.

In New Horizons, Velma has the education hobby and can be seen wearing rimmed glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.


Artwork of Velma from Animal Crossing.


Velma is a pink goat with dark pink freckles, white hooves, and glasses. Her glasses are slightly cat-eyed, and have light blue in the middle to give the glass effect. Her ears stick out abnormally, and are placed almost just under her pointy yellow horns with white tips, which point backward. She has brown, choppy hair and a small beard at the tip of her chin, making her the only female goat with facial hair.


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

Velma has a snooty personality, which means she can be cruel and bitter. But, after talking and doing errands for Velma, after a while she may gradually warm up to the player. She will not get along with jock personalities, because she will dislike their comments about her fitness and looks. She will get along with other snooty villagers and cranky villagers too. She will not like lazy villagers either because she will not understand their laid back, no fashion lives. She will usually get along with normal personalities, but they look up to her and admire her, and she sometimes says their fashion style is not that good and maybe comments on their hair, which usually leaves the normal villager disappointed. She may make jokes about peppy villagers as they are so happy and jumpy.
