Vesta (メリヤス, Meriyasu) is a normal sheep in Animal Crossing series that has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. Her name is a play on the word vest, an item of clothing sometimes made out of the wool of sheep, her species. Her initial phrase, baaaffo is a play on the word baa, the sound sheep make.


Vesta from Animal Crossing

Vesta is a sheep with a dark blue face with white features to match her blonde wool. Her horns are yellow and orange, and she wears a yellow and light red tartan scarf, called a Fall Plaid Shirt. This is due to sheep villagers not wearing shirts, but wearing scarf versions of designs and shirts around their necks.


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

As a normal villager, Vesta will appear friendly and hospitable towards the player and other villagers. Like other normal villagers, she will have an unseen obsession with hygiene and cleanliness, which she mentions when the player visits her in her home. Other than her hygiene interests, she will appear neutral and open-minded when discussing hobbies, such as gardening, bug catching, fishing and so on. Like other villagers, she will, from time to time, ask the player for favors feeling sorry for having to ask for help, but appearing very gracious once the task has been complete. She will get along easily with other villagers, but may conflict with lazy villagers when they talk about food and leading her on to suggesting making them dinner or lunch for them.


Vesta has a little house. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, she has a Ranch Couch, Classic Bookcase, Fireplace, and a Sewing Machine, and her reel-to-reel plays K.K. Steppe. She displays the Natty Shirt, Gumdrop Shirt, Winter Sweater, and Comfy Sweater. Vesta's carpet is backyard lawn flooring, and her wall is Ranch Wallpaper.
