“This isn't a fortune cookie, It's an important life lesson!”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Friga (サブリナ,Saburina?, Sabrina) is a snootypenguinvillager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in every game so far. Friga was possibly named after the Norse goddess Frigg--sometimes called Frigga--because her picture quote talks subtly about knowing the future, as Frigg was said to be able to do. Alternatively, her name could derive from the word "frigid", meaning cold, which relates to penguins being antarctic creatures. Her initial phrase is a portmanteau of "hmph", a reference to her snooty personality, and "brr", the traditional sound made during cold weather. Her Japanese name also plays on the onomatopoeia, brrr.
Friga is a navy blue penguin with a light-pink complexion, turquoise blue eyeshadow, dramatic mascara, and pink blush. She has dark blue hair on her forehead that is combed down. Her flippers (arms) are the same color as her back and tipped with a light pink crescent moon shape. She has yellow feet and a large beak. She wears the picnic shirt from Wild World to New Leaf (and in HHD).In New Horizons, she wears the candy gingham tank. In Animal Forest for the N64, Friga's face is a slightly more vivid pink, her eyes are smaller with powder blue eye shadow, her cheeks are a bright red, and her hair is dark bluish-purple. She wears a cozy sweater in the game as well as in Animal Crossing.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Friga has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Friga will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Friga will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jockvillagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.
In Animal Crossing Friga has an elegant house with mostly regal furniture. She has the sno-cone tee and bubble tee, and two umbrellas. She has the Arched Window wallpaper and Classic Carpet. On her stereo, K.K. Tangois played.
In City Folk, she has a similar theme in her house, with regal furniture. She owns a retro stereo (playing K.K. Tango). She now owns a spring shirt. She still has the arched window wallpaper and classic carpet.
In New Leaf, her house still has a regal theme. She owns many pieces of regal furniture, including the regal bed, sofa, and dresser. She owns a retro stereo (playing K.K. Tango) and a classic buffet, on which there is an aroma pot. She still owns the spring shirt, and still has the bubble tee.
In New Horizons, her house takes on a different appearance. She owns much of the rattan series (bed, lamp, chair, vanity, wardrobe, and table), customized white with aqua fabric. She owns a toilet, a bathtub and shower, a bowl sink, and an aqua CD player, playing Farewell. She has the white brick wall and marble tile flooring. She has a blue ice wall separating the bathroom furniture from a rattan vanity and wardrobe. There is an air conditioner above the rattan bed,
Friga's a penguin, so it stands to reason that she'd enjoy cold weather. Of course, she's equally comfortable in all seasons... although that fact doesn't stop her from complaining about the weather from time to time.
