“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?, Luce) 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. Other regional names are less ambiguous, referring to tigers (Bengale, Tigrizia), or cats (Felina). Bangle was originally 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.
Bangle is a brown tiger with yellow stripes on her head, arms, legs, and tail. She has big, wide eyes with freckles on her face. She has a very happy face like most peppy villagers. She initially wears a Pop Bloom shirt. In Animal Forest, she has some blue eye makeup and half-closed eyes, similar to Sally's.
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 were not completed. Bangle may easily get upset in conversation when wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly the lazy, normal, jock, uchi, other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
In New Leaf she has most items from the Dot Series and has some items from the Lovely Series such as the clock and bed. She has the 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. Prior to gaining a stereo, her retro T.V. will play Bubblegum K.K. when turned on.
Her name Bangle, and the fact that she plays Bubblegum K.K. on the television may be a reference to the band The Bangles or the fact that she's a tiger and might be a Bengal tiger with different colors. Also, her stripes on her arms and leg, give gold bracelet like appearances, bracelets are also called Bangles.
