Penelope Gallery

Hey! What?! Are you, like, a visitor to our town? Well, enjoy it here. You'll find it a dream, oh bow!
― Penelope, New Leaf

Penelope (チューこ, Chūko?) is a peppy mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. The name Penelope means to weave, likely a reference to the bow on top of her head, and a reference to the wife of Odysseus in Homer's Odyssey. Her initial catchphrase is also a reference to her bow and is a play on the phrase "oh boy", a term generally used to show excitement, a trait common in peppy villagers.

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


Penelope is a light gray, almost mint-colored mouse with blonde hair. Her appearance is rather unique for a mouse, as she lacks ears and has a pink bow in their place. She has a dark gray nose, and a perky smile showing her teeth. The tips of her paws and legs are also a dark gray. Her eyes are of an oval shape, she has black pupils and a set of three eyelashes on both her eyes. Her tail is gray up until New Horizons where it is changed to pink. She initially wears a Pink Wave Tank, and carries a Leaf Umbrella when it rains.


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, Penelope 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. Penelope 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.


Penelope's house has pieces of the lovely and alpine furniture, including the lovely lamp and bed, and an alpine dresser and low table. She also has a few pieces of the Sweets Series, including the sweets player and bookcase. She has Bubblegum K.K. playing on her stereo.

  • It is also possible that her English name might be an intended homage to Penelope from Hamtaro, due to them being small female characters.
