“Wow, is it my turn already? That was so quick, sweetie!”
― Candi, Animal Crossing
Candi (かんゆ,Kan'yu?) is a peppymousevillager in the Animal Crossing series. Candi's name can either be a play on the word Candy (referencing her catchphrase "sweetie"), or the nickname for Candace/Candice. Originally she only appeared in the early Animal Crossing games. Her Japanese name means "liver oil". She shares a catchphrase with Violet. She has the play hobby.
Candi 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.
Candi is a pink mouse, similar to Carmen. The inside of her ears are light blue, and she initially wears an Ancient Knit. She has large, puffed cheeks. She also has dimples, a black nose, black eyes and a pink striped tail.
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, Candi 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. Candi 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.
Candi's house has a stereotypical "girly" theme, including four pink/purple shirts, the whole Apple Set and two Gyroids, the Mini Dekkoid and the Mini Tootoid. There is a Lovely Stereo that plays K.K. Calypso.
In New Leaf, her house is similar to a store. If she obtains a stereo it plays K.K. Ragtime
When Candi gets a song in her head, it tends to set up camp in there and stay awhile. She'll like in bed at night and hum to herself, dreaming of becoming a rock star. By morning, though, she forgets all about it.
