This month's Ms. Nintendique cover girl!
― Picture quote, Wild World

Patty (カルピ, Karupi?, Carpi) is a peppy cow villager who has appeared in every Animal Crossing series game to date. Her name either relates to a "beef patty" or "cow pat" (another name for cow dung). Her Japanese name may come from "karupisu", a Japanese milk-based soft drink. Her catchphrase is based off of "How Now Brown Cow", a phrase that helps children learn rounded vowel sounds and is also a greeting. She is the only bovine to appear in every game in the series. She has the fashion hobby.


Patty in Animal Crossing

Patty is a chocolate brown cow with a beige nose, yellow horns, and hands as well as a tuft of brunette hair. Her initial shirt is the citrus shirt (later renamed "orange dress" in New Horizons). The Citrus Shirt is only available from Gracie, but is available at Able Sisters in City Folk and New Leaf. Patty carries a Gelato Umbrella on rainy days. She is possibly a Brown Swiss cow. She has a small smile, that she uses to sing.


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, Patty 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. Patty 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 the first three installments of the Animal Crossing series, Patty's house has mostly all the items from the Cabana Series, including the carpet, with some items from other series. Her wallpaper is from the Ranch Series. In her house, she plays the song K.K. Calypso if she has a stereo.

In New Leaf, Patty's house is now different from past versions of the Animal Crossing games. Her home is filled with various outdoor items, making her house seem like a backyard. She owns an ocean sunfish and birdcage in the back. She also has a clothesline, hammock, and plant. She also owns a table and chair to the right of her house.
