“I'm feeling kind of blank today.”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Coco (やよい,Yayoi?) is a normalrabbitvillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her English name probably comes from the coconut, a fruit stereotypically depicted with three holes. A reference to chocolate (i.e. cocoa), based on the tradition of chocolate bunnies, is also possible. Coco's catchphrase may relate to the "boing" sound most gyroids make. It may also reference how rabbits are known for hopping. Coco's Japanese name Yayoi (やよい) is a reference to the Yayoi Period (300BC-AD300) in Japan, an era near the end of which Haniwa statues, the inspiration for gyroids, were first created.
So far, she is the only rabbit with a normal personality in the Animal Crossing series. Coco is the only villager whose face does not change with expressions, though her eyes and mouth change shape and sizes. Her lack of expression is reflected in her Wild Worldpicture quote. She is one of the few villagers that is technically not an animal, along with Sprocket, Del, Ribbot, Hopkins, Stitches, and Cephalobot. She has the education hobby.
Coco is a light brown rabbit with dark speckles. She has empty black eyes and a mouth with an apparently hollow head, referencing the appearance of gyroids. Her face also resembles that of a player in the first Animal Crossing game that didn't save their game while visiting another player's village. She initially wears a Misty Shirt in Animal Crossing and a Dawn Tee in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Coco 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. Coco may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Coco 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.
Coco's house has a tranquil, oriental theme. She lacks a stereo initially, so she has no music playing, but if she receives one, it will play K.K. Dirge. Coco has various items from different garden themes, including an outdoor pool, deer scare, and the tall lantern. Coco also has an exotic chest and some house plants. She also has a shanty mat, enhancing the outdoorsy feel of the room.
In Wild World, she has an exotic chest, a screen, a rock pool, two tall lanterns, a plant and a rock person. Coco has one gyroid, the Mega Rustoid.
In New Leaf, Coco has two bonfires on each side of her room when you first walk in. She also has five different gyroids, two exotic screens on both sides of the room, and an exotic table that supports her brown pot and white pot. She also has a Shanty Mat as flooring and a Garden Wall as her wallpaper.
In New Horizons, the exterior of Coco's house is tan with shades of mossy green and brown panels along the sides. The roof is beige matching the wooden door. The interior of her home consists of a stone table, 2 stone stools, a hay bed, clothesline, old washtub, 2 pitchers and tiki torches and a pot. Coco's walls are lined with the rammed-earth wallpaper and floral rush-mat flooring. Unlike in previous games, if Coco is given a stereo in her house, it will play K.K. Jongara.
