Good afternoon! They call me Faith. I live alone, in peace, on this blessed island.
― Faith, Animal Crossing

Faith Gallery

Faith (マーチ, Māchi?, March) is a koala from Animal Forest+, Animal Crossing, and Animal Forest e+, as a normal islander. Along with Huggy, Faith was one of the few koala villagers not to appear in any games subsequent to Animal Forest e+ until she was added in the 2.0 New Horizons update as an sisterly villager. Her catchphrase, aloha, is the Hawaiian way to say hello or goodbye, it is likely a reference to her living on the island.

She has the music hobby.


Faith in Animal Crossing

Faith is an orange koala with a tan face and paws. She has dark reddish-brown hair, rectangular black eyes, a reddish-brown rectangular nose, and orange cheeks. She wears a yellow flower tucked behind her right ear. Her initial shirt is the Red Aloha Shirt, like all female islanders.


Faith's personality changes from a normal islander in Animal Crossing to a sisterly villager in New Horizons.

In Animal Crossing

Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Faith 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. Faith may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Faith 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.

Below is a brief description of the sisterly personality. For more information, click here.

Faith is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Faith will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a wasp. Like all sisterly villagers, Faith is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Faith has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.

Faith will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Faith may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy and normal villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with with smug and snooty villagers due to their arrogant nature. Faith may clash with cranky villagers due to their similarly stubborn personalities, but often end up becoming best friends.


In Animal Forest and Animal Forest e+, Faith's house will start out with very few pieces of furniture. Her house starts out with only a Wobbelina. She will request from the player a Robo-Stereo, a jack-in-the-box, a Papa bear, Mama bear, and Baby bear, an Executive Toy, a Water bird, an Elephant slide, and the playroom wall as well as the playroom rug.

  • Faith is the only formerly normal villager to ever receive a personality change.
  • As an islander, Faith loves one type of fruit and is allergic to another. She loves coconuts and is allergic to pears. Giving her the fruit she is allergic to will lower her chance of dropping money bags.
  • Her Japanese name is likely a reference to a brand of Koala-shaped snack cookies called Koala's March. This also ties in with her favorite song, K.K. March.
    • Her French name, "Kolette", is a portmanteau of "koala" and the name "Colette".
    • Her Italian name is "Calipso", which may refer to the Calypso musical genre, commonly associated with islands. It may also refers to the calypso genus of the orchid flower, as well as the Greek goddess who entertained Odysseus for seven years in Homer's Odyssey.
