Other Appearances

Violet is a snooty gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name is derived from her fur color. She originally appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ as islander. She is absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World, though she returns in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf



Violet, like her name, is a violet gorilla with a pink-colored muzzle and paws, red lipstick, and wears pearl wristbands around her arms and forehead. Violet bears a strong resemblance to Jane, another purple Gorilla villager, specifically her western appearance, which may have become the cause for Jane's removal from the series. In City Folk, Violet initially wears a Misty Shirt, though she originally wore the red aloha shirt in Doub. no Mori e+


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

Violet has a snooty personality, which means she will enjoy shopping, make-up, and her looks. She does not get along with jock villagers, but gets along with cranky villagers and other snooty villagers.
