― Picture quote, Wild World

Pate (ナッキー, Nakkī?) is a peppy duck villager in the Animal Crossing series. Pate's name probably derives from the French word "pâté", a meat dish usually formed from the liver of a duck or goose, meaning that her name should most likely be pronounced "Pa-tay", rather than "Pay-te". Pate has appeared in every game so far. Her initial phrase is a reference to the sound ducks make, "quack". She has the fashion hobby.


Pate in Animal Crossing

Pate is a blue-gray duck with big pink cheeks and short brown hair. Her eyebrows are very anxious looking, giving her the appearance of being in distress or confusion. Sticking with the common peppy trait, she has 'cute' beady looking eyes.


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, Pate 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. Pate 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.


Pate's house has many items from the Classic Series including a Classic Bed, Classic Table and a Classic Bookcase, and even a Classic Vanity. Pate also has the mini and mega Freakoids. She owns a Turntable, which plays K.K. Dirge (but in New Leaf, this is replaced with K.K. Steppe) and a Regal Sofa. Pate's wallpaper is the Stone Wall and her carpet is the Opulent Rug.

Profile Pate is a cutie-patooty, but people often think she's worried because of her narrowed brow. She's not upset. She's just concerned that everyone is happy. With a sweet attitude like that, you can't hate Pate.

Pate's perpetual frowny face is a bit misleading. Once she opens her mouth, it's like an onslaught of excitement and cheer. Always prepare yourself before engaging.
