Cheri (アセロラ,Aserora?, Acerola) is a peppycubvillager from the Animal Crossing series, making appearances in Animal Crossing and New Leaf. Her name in Japanese is a type of plant. Her English name is based on the word "cherry," a fruit of the same color as her fur, and possibly “cheery”, referring to her personality. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to her cheerful manner and love of singing. Her birthday is on Shamrock Day. She appeared in the early games of the series, was absent in Wild World and City Folk, and returned in New Leaf. She appears on the album covers for I Love You and K.K. Faire. She has the fashion hobby.

She also has dark red eyebrows, an oval-shaped black nose, and small smile that curls quite steeply at its edges just underneath.

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, Cheri 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. Cheri 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 New Leaf, Cheri's house portrays a futuristic theme, with furniture mostly consisting from the Astro Series, like the bed, dresser, and table. She also has a Minimalist Couch and the ottoman. A surveillance camera is pointed straight at the shower. She also as three plants, the aloe, sunflower, and cactus along with an Astro Stereo playing K.K. Synth. Her choice of flooring and wallpaper are the Flower Pop Wall and the Classroom Floor.
Cheri likes things her own way. She can even be a little pushy, but whether it's her attitude or her expression, she's often mistaken for a boy. But she thinks she's pretty, and that's all that matters.
