Good evening. And unless I'm mistaken, pleased to meet you! I'm Nosegay. So what's your name?
― Nosegay, Animal Crossing

Nosegay (アリンコ, Arinko?) is a normal anteater villager who has only appeared in the earlier games in the Animal Crossing series.


Nosegay in Animal Forest

Nosegay is a fairly solemn-looking, reddish-brown anteater with a lighter brown face and paws. She has white arms, possible to give her the illusion of wearing a long-sleeved shirt. She has small, half-closed black eyes, with blue eyeshadow and a single eyelash on each. Her tail is fluffy and reddish-brown, and the insides of her ears are pink. Her initial shirt is the Loud Bloom Shirt, which may reference her name.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Nosegay 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. Nosegay may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Nosegay 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.


In Nosegay's house, she has no specific theme. She has many paintings and two Gyroids, the Mini Tootoid and the Mega Lullaboid. She also has a red econo-chair. The wallpaper in her home is the Melon Wall and the flooring is the Shanty Flooring. There is no stereo in her starting home, but if she obtains one The K. Funk will play on it.

Profile Nosegay has a nose for finding ants. But instead of using that nose, she's started leaving candy and rotten radishes to attract and trap them. Sounds like she also has a nose for trying new things!
