“If you're looking for a fight, you found one! Yodelay!”
― Paula, New Leaf
Paula (レイチェル,Reicheru?, Rachel) is a peppy, but later sisterly, bearvillager from the Animal Crossing series series. She first appeared in Animal Forest e+, was absent from many games of the series, and returns in New Leaf and New Horizons with her personality changed to sisterly. Her name may refer to a bear's paws. Being absent from many of the Animal Crossing games, her picture quote may be a reference to her sporadic reappearances, or due to the fact she wears a hippie-like headband from the 70's. She appears on the album covers for K.K. Dixie and K.K. Oasis. She has the fitness hobby.
Paula is a brown bear with blonde hair. She wears a white and brown striped headband. The inside of her ears, muzzle, and paws are all light beige, and she wears blue eye shadow. In her original appearance, she initially wears a Denim Shirt when she first gets into the player's town. However, in New Leaf, she initially wears the Pep Squad Shirt.

Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Paula 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. Paula 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.
