Bitty (エーミー,Ēmī?, Amy) is a snootyhippovillager from the Animal Crossing series. Bitty's name is assumed to be a play on words from the phrased term, itty-bitty, as ironic as it is for her species. Her Japanese name, Amy, can be translated from the Spanish origin meaning "of love", in reference to her pink coloration. Her name and appearance share a similitude to the well known character, Betty Boop. She has the education hobby.
Bitty returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.
Bitty is a pink hippo with white hooves. She wears purple eye shadow and three small eyelashes. She has a brown patch of hair and the insides of her ears are red. She initially wears a pink Frilly Dress (a Funky Dot Shirt in all games prior to NH).
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Bitty has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Bitty will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Bitty will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
In Animal Crossing, Bitty's house is designed as a stylish studio apartment, with very few feminine traits visible in the home decor's color. Bitty's house interior consists of metal floors, a Cabana vanity, a Modern table, Red Sofa, and Gracie-designed shirts. Bitty's stereo plays DJ K.K. The High-End Stereo has a darker shade according the version being played. Bitty shares a similar house decor to Curt's.
In New Leaf, Bitty's home and RV are decorated very fashionably, with a small resemblance to a clothing store. She owns a ring, a jewelry box, perfume bottles and a fancy display case. She uses the Mosaic Wall as her wallpaper, and her flooring is the Lobby Floor. Bitty does not initially own a stereo, but she will play the song K.K. Disco if she obtains one.
