Bertha Gallery

Bertha (あんこ, Anko?) is a normal hippo villager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name may refer to the name "Big Bertha", a name given to a range of large cannons. Her Japanese name means "bean paste". Her catchphrase could be related to the sound of splashing in water, as hippos live with areas with water. She has the same initial phrase as Zucker.

She has the education hobby.


Bertha in Animal Crossing

Bertha is a teal hippo with dark blue hair in a bob-cut style with flat-cut bangs. The insides of her mouth and ears are orange. She has beady black eyes with a single eyelash on each. Her hands and feet (or hooves) are ivory colored, and her tail has stripes that are colored a darker teal from the rest of her body. Above each of her hooves there is a gradient with the darker teal. Like all hippos, she has flaring nostrils and pointy ears. Bertha's initial shirt is the Pink Tartan Shirt in Animal Crossing, the Funky Dot Tee in New Leaf, and a Pintuck Pleated Dress in New Horizons.


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

Bertha 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. Bertha may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Bertha 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.


Bertha has no specific theme, though most of the furniture comes from the Modern Series, such as a Modern Bed and a Modern Table. Other various items include: two instruments, two plants, and a Gold Stereo that plays K.K. Cruisin'. Her wallpaper is a Blue Trim Wall and her flooring is the stone floor. Antonio has the same house as her, but with different wallpaper and flooring.

In New Leaf, Bertha's house resembles a dentist's office. She has two Dentist Chairs, as well as a Drinking Fountain behind a curtain. She also has two plants, the Pothos and the Yellow Tulips, as well as a large fish. She has a Record Player that plays Space K.K.

Bertha's preferred theme is harmonious. Her profile says:

Bertha loves nothing more than a good twist, but her passion for mystery is what usually spoils it. If only she had the self-control to not read the ending before the rest of the book.

  • Bertha shares her catchphrase with Zucker, a lazy octopus villager.
  • All of Bertha's catchphrases in the western versions of the game are somehow related to "bloop" (her English catchphrase). In Asia, however, her catchphrases are all some variant of "Yes" (as in, affirming what someone has said).
    • Similarly, her Chinese and Japanese names (see In other languages) both mean "bean paste", while her Western names (and Korean name) are all similar.
