“Mmm, when it's this sunny, it's like the sky is giving me a big hug, neigh!”
― Epona, New Leaf
Epona is a peppy horse villager from the Animal Crossing series, introduced in the Welcome Amiibo update. Epona is one of a few villagers that may appear in the campground after the Amiibo is scanned. When a Sheik, Ocarina of Time Link, Link Rider, or Majora's Mask amiibo is scanned, Epona can be invited to live in the town. Her birthday is also the day The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was first released in Japan.
Along with other RV-exclusive villagers, Epona can't be invited to the town if their own house is still present in the town. Once they have packed boxes and left, they may be "adopted" again.
Epona is a stylized horse villager designed to resemble the character of the same name in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and other Legend of Zelda games.
|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, Epona 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. Epona 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.

There is no amiibo card. The only way to get her is by using the Sheik, Ocarina of Time Link, Link Rider, or Majora's Mask Link amiibo figure from the Legend Of Zelda Series.
- Epona's birthday is November 21st. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time launched on November 21st, 1998, and was the first game to feature Epona.
