- This article is about a normal rhino villager. For the peppy cow villager, see Patty.
Merengue (パティ, “Pati”, Patty?) is a normal rhino villager who first appeared in New Leaf. Her name comes from "meringue", a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. Her phrase references what she looks like, a strawberry shortcake. She has the nature hobby.
Merengue's body is light pink with a white layer that covers the top of her head. She has a small horn that looks like an upturned strawberry. She has rosy cheeks, small pink ears, and brown eyes with a triangle shape on the side of both eyes, which have two eyelashes stemming from each eye. Merengue has white hooves and a tail with a peach colored puff at the end, which looks like a strawberry. Her horn protrudes from the top of her snout and resembles a strawberry. She initially wears a Chef's Outfit, suiting her food-like appearance, and carries the Candy Umbrella on rainy days. She, Tangy, Carrot, Zucker, Chadder, Frita and Ketchup all resemble food.

- Merengue is the only female rhino villager still in the series to have two horns. Her secondary horn can be hard to notice, as it is the same color as the rest of her head to resemble a dollop of cream. Previously, all rhinos had two horns, but this was later changed to just one for most other female rhinos.
