This is my star smile.
― Picture quote, Wild World

Peanut (ももこ, Momoko?) is a peppy squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. She has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. Her name comes from "peanut", a food squirrels like to eat. Her French and Italian names are also based of the word for peanut in those languages, "arachide". It is unknown why she says "slacker" as a catchphrase, though it is a "nickname" catchphrase. It is most likely mockery, which fits Peanut's appearance and her peppy personality.

She is featured on the cover of K.K. Rally and she has the fashion hobby.


Peanut in Animal Crossing

Peanut is bright fuchsia squirrel with a purple and white stripe on her head (similar to Ricky and Filbert). She has large black eyes with curved eyelashes and a wide smile that resembles the number 3 turned sideways. Her tail is fuchsia with magenta and white stripes. Her paws and the insides of her ears are also magenta. Prior to New Horizons, Peanut initially wears the Beatnik Tee. In New Horizons, she wears an orange striped maxi dress.


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, Peanut 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. Peanut 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.


Peanut's house in Wild World and City Folk has a variety of colorful items in her house, including two Tall Droploids, a watermelon table, a Blue Dresser, a simple armchair, a cream sofa and a green counter. She also has a Dice Stereo playing K.K. Salsa.

In New Leaf, Peanut's house has more of a girly appearance compared to the other games. She has a pink game shelf, some Red Tulips, and a Hi-Fi Stereo playing K.K. Salsa. She also has a few items from the Lovely Series and the Blue Series. She seems to have a kitchen area too, since she has a Retro Fridge, a microwave, and a Lovely Kitchen all in one corner. She has the Parlor Wall and the Dotted Flooring for her wallpaper and flooring.

In New Horizons, the exterior of the house is light pink with white trim and a matching board door. The roof is a deep shackled red. The interior of the home has a red heart wallpaper and white boarded flooring. Peanut incorporates the cute set in white which includes a wardrobe, vanity, TV, cushion, mug, a mini table with a music player on top, white lamp and a pink and white bed with red ribbon decals and pink bed sheets. She also has a bulletin board with multiple photos above her work bench which is a matching red and white.
