Nibbles in Animal Crossing

Nibbles is a turquoise squirrel. She has yellow hair on her head and bright yellow markings on her tail. She has big, white eyes with small black pupils, and freckles on her cheeks like Freckles does. She has buck teeth sticking out of her smiling mouth. Nibbles' original shirt is the Watermelon Shirt. In Animal Forest, Nibbles' appearance had a few changes; her fur is dark green, her cheeks are pink, and there are two yellow stripes instead of three. When it's raining, she uses a sunny parasol.


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, Nibbles 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. Nibbles 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 Animal Crossing, Nibbles seems to have a childish, and somewhat feminine theme in her house. She has an Elephant Slide, three Lovely Armchairs, a Lovely Lamp, and many gyroids and several other items that could be considered either childish or girly. Her wallpaper is the Blue Wall, and her flooring is the Citrus Carpet.

In Wild World, Nibbles has many random items throughout her house. She has a Kiddie Bed, a Lovely Sofa, an elephant slide, a guitar, two sproids, and a shirt. Her wallpaper is the Arched Window, and her flooring is the Citrus Carpet. Her house in City Folk is almost the same, except her wallpaper is the Parlor Wall, rather than her previous Arched Window. Interestingly, in City Folk, if the player has Nibbles in their town, and the player venture into the city and takes a peep into the Happy Room Academy model room, the player will commonly see a perfect replica of Nibbles' house, as Lyle believes that her house has great Feng Shui.

In New Leaf, Nibbles' house is very different compared to her previous homes. She owns many assorted items, including both pine items, a ping-pong table, a shaved ice maker, a mountain bike, and a gyroid. She also owns quite a few fruit-themed items, such as a pineapple bed, a juicy apple TV, and a lemon table. Her wallpaper is the Citrus Wall, and her flooring is the Green Rug.

In New Horizons, her home is similar to previous games in terms of it being in a fruity style, she still has a ping pong table from New Leaf as well as an apple TV, and she has an electric scooter instead of a bike. Her house is decorated with fruit, she has a pear bed as well as pear wallpaper, an orange table and a apple TV. She now has a vanity mirror as well as and garden table and chair with a sunset puzzle on the table. She has a cute radio that plays K.K. Disco on it.
