Maple (メープル,Mēpuru?, Maple) is a normalcubvillager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in every game in the series so far. Maple's name derives from the type of tree called a Maple Tree. It could also be her name because she is "sweet like syrup"; as she has the normal personality. She is the only character to mention another character in their picture quote, in this case, a mop called Moppina. Her initial catchphrase, "honey", is a reference to what bears are stereotypically known to eat. It could also be a reference to her personality type, due to the fact that honey is sweet. She has the education hobby.
Maple is a brown cub with a beige-tipped snout and paws. She has pale red blush, and is the color of maple syrup. She has a black nose and small, black, shiny eyes. In the N64 version, she has a red patch on the back of her head. Maple's initial clothing is the Citrus Gingham, except in New Leaf, where she wears the Dapper Shirt, and New Horizons, where she wears the Tree sweater. When it rains, she uses a petal parasol. In the N64 version, she looks a little bit like Ellie the elephant.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Maple 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. Maple may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Maple 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.
Maple's preferred theme is natural. Her profile says:
Maple is as sweet as her namesake but, luckily, much less sticky.
