Huggy (ダッコ,Dakko?) is a peppykoalavillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her only appearances are the early versions of the Animal Crossing series. She gets her name from the the fact Koalas "hug" or cling to trees, and koala joeys "hug" their mother's backs when they are young. Her initial phrase, "bear," comes from the colloquial name, "koala bear". She, along with Faith, are the only two koala villagers not to have appeared in any games subsequent to Animal Forest e+. She appeared on the e-Reader artwork for Mr. K.K..
Huggy is a pale yellow koala, with greenish-brown paws and greenish-brown hair. She has light brown nose, greenish-brown eyebrows, pink rosy cheeks and a big, cheery smile. The insides of her ears are white. She initially wears the Jade Check Shirt, and carries the Ribbon Parasol when it rains.
In Animal Forest, she was orange, her paws and hair were more green in color, her nose was larger, and her eyebrows were curvier.
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, Huggy 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. Huggy 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.
Huggy has two musical instruments. One is a metronome, residing in the upper left hand corner of the room; the other is an ebony piano. Her room has three Lovely Series items: two lovely chairs and a lovely end table. She has three Plinkoid Gyroids. These gyroids are all mostly pink, with some blue features, matching Huggy's room theme. A Hi-fi stereo playing K.K. March takes up the two spots in the upper left hand corner, while an unidentified plant from the House Plant Set resides in the lower right hand corner of Huggy's room.
