“I'm trying out a new earstyle here.”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Gabi (ペチカ,Pechika?) is a rabbitvillager with a peppy personality who has appeared in all Animal Crossing series titles so far. Her catchphrase relates to her species, "bun" being a shortening of "bunny". Her name, Gabi, may refer to being extremely talkative, a trait peppy villagers tend to possess. Her name also probably came from the Tagalog word of "night", like peppy villagers staying up late. She shares her name with the Japanese localization's name for Vladimir. She appears on the album cover for K.K. Lullaby. She has the fashion hobby.
Gabi is a white rabbit, with the lower half of her body being a somewhat light brown. She has a tuft of hair on her forehead which forms 5 downward tips, and is also light brown. The inside of her ears are a purple-pink color and she has pink freckles. Her eyes are round with large, round pupils in the middle, and she has a large, shiny black nose. The tips of her hands are colored yellow, with a slight light brown ring between the yellow of her paws and the white of her arms. Gabi's initial shirt is the Waffle Shirt, which was changed to the Gingham Picnic Shirt in New Horizons.
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, Gabi 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. Gabi 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 Wild World and City Folk, Gabi's house has a modern, loosely musical theme, with various instruments such as a grand piano and a vibraphone. Various pot plants and a metronome are included. She also owns a Tall Nebuloid.
In New Leaf, Gabi's house is similar to her City Folk house. She has a variety of Musical Instruments, as well as a metronome. She again has a Turntable.
In every main game that Gabi has been in, her favorite song is K.K. Love Song.
