“Sneaking around like that, with a wicked little grin on your face... You're up to something, I can just tell!”
― Bangle, Animal Crossing
Bangle (ルーズ,Rūzu?, Luz) is a peppytigervillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name likely comes from the species of tiger called a Bengal tiger, but it could also relate to the accessory, or the country of Bangladesh, where tiger habitats exist. Other regional names are less ambiguous, referring to tigers (Bengale, Tigrizia), or cats (Felina). Bangle was the only female tiger until Bianca and Claudia were introduced in New Leaf. She only appeared in the early games of the series, until returning in New Leaf and reappearing in New Horizons. She has the fashion hobby.
Bangle is a brown tiger with yellow markings on her head, arms, legs, and tail. She has rather large eyes with four dotted freckles on her face and her ears are a bright pink, matching the inside of her mouth. She has a very happy face like most peppy villagers. In Animal Forest, she has some blue eye makeup and half-closed eyes, similar to Sally's. She initially wears a Pop Bloom shirt. In New Horizons she wears a Tropical Muumuu.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Bangle will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which weren't completed. Bangle may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
In Animal Forest, Bangle has a retro TV, three gyroids, a N64 logo, an apple clock, a modern sofa, two cactuses, a clock, and two guitars. She has the citrus carpet, Her reel to reel plays K.K. Cruisin'.
In New Leaf, Bangle has most items from the Dot Series and has some items from the Lovely Series such as the clock and bed. She has a karaoke television and a few marshmallow chairs and some bears on her table and dresser. If she gains a stereo, it will play K.K. Soul.
In New Horizons, Bangle's house is brown with a brown latticework door and beige stone roof. The interior has the yellow intricate wall and the blue floral flooring. She has a yellow double sofa, a light wooden double bed, end table, chest, a full-length mirror, a cherry wooden low table, a choco baby bear with a star shirt, an oak ironwood kitchenette, a white double-door refrigerator, a yellow dish-drying rack, a pop knife rack, a green aroma pot, and a pink bold muumuu. A white air conditioner hangs on the wall. When Bangle crafts a recipe, she uses a natural mini DIY workbench.
