Just keep your cool.
― Picture quote, Wild World

Aurora (オーロラ, Ōrora?) is a normal penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series. She is named after the aurora, which can be seen in the skies above the South pole, where most species of penguins live. Her initial phrase comes from pronouncing "baby" while shivering, which happens when words are pronounced usually in cold weather or climates; it is quite similar to Roald's, Cube's and Gwen's. She has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. She has the education hobby.


Aurora in Animal Crossing

Aurora is a typical penguin with black eye sockets, but when she gets surprised, her eyes become red, and when she blinks her eyelids are a pale-pink. She also has a large, white belly, and a black stripe going down the front of her face. She has black feet and gray on her flippers, neck, and back, making her look like Cube. She initially wears the Classic Top in Animal Crossing, the Pink Tartan Tee in Wild World, and the Plover Cardigan in New Horizons.


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

Aurora (villager) has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Aurora (villager) may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Aurora (villager) will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


In Animal Crossing, Aurora's house doesn't have any specific theme to it. She has many clocks, as well as four gyroids against the wall. She also has an iris table and two daffodil chairs to go with it. She also has an elephant slide and a red boombox that plays K.K. Swing. Her wallpaper is the lunar horizon and her flooring is the kitchen tile.

In Wild World and City Folk, Aurora's house is mostly unchanged. Her elephant slide is still there, and she has an iris table and a daffodil chair. She also has removed most of her clocks, except for the kitschy clock. She also has a gold stereo that plays K.K. Gumbo. Her floor and wallpaper are the same as in the last game.

In New Leaf, Aurora's house has changed a bit from the previous games. She has removed her elephant slide and added some furniture from the Minimalist Series. She also has a Robo table with a snow globe on it. She also has two cream sofas on either side of the Robo table, and a dice stereo that plays K.K. Gumbo. Her floor and wallpaper are the same as in the previous games.

In New Horizons, Aurora's house has cream-colored wooden siding with a white basic door and a black tile roof. The interior has the ice wall and ice flooring. She has two Aquarius urns, a Cancer table, two frozen pillars, a frozen bed, a frozen partition, and two white illuminated snowflakes. She also has a blue portable record player which plays Stale Cupcakes.

Profile Aurora is very kind and polite, but she can also be surprisingly flighty. She starts off with the most serious of sentences and then finishes them up with the silliest of comments. She's an odd bird.
