Piper in Animal Crossing

Piper is a white bird. Her beak and feet are a vivid salmon pink, and her legs have thin darker pink stripes on them. She has two eyelashes under each half-lidded eye, and arched black eyebrows. The feathers at the end of her tail are dark gray. In New Horizons, her eyes have subtle dark purple-colored irises. She initially wears the Striking Outfit in Animal Forest e+, the Tropical Tee in New Leaf, and a black Lacy Shirt in New Horizons.


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, Piper 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. Piper 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 GameCube games, Piper has several pieces from the Cabana Series, such as the Cabana Vanity and the Cabana Bed. Piper's wallpaper is the Stately Wall and her flooring is the Birch Flooring. K.K. Reggae plays on a Turntable.

In New Leaf, Piper has several exclusive Welcome amiibo items in her home that also show up in her RV. This includes a Console table with a Single rose atop it, a Minifridge holding a Silver teapot, and a table setting made up of a Round-cloth table, Reception chair, and a serving of Fish and chips. Her home, overall, has an upscale restaurant theme to it, with the exception of a few items more in line with a traditional living space, like her Shower stall, Classic bed, and Trunk. She uses the Cityscape wall and Panel carpet floor.

In New Horizons, Piper's house retains the modern apartment theme with which Piper was reintroduced from the Welcome amiibo series. Much of her decor is furbished in black, such as the end table and armchair from the rattan set, console table and bed from the antique series, portable record player, and wall-mounted Tv (50 In.). Other furniture include a white tea set with gray cloth and white fragrance diffuser, which are placed on top of the black rattan end table and black console table, respectively. Piper also has a white shower booth and hanging white bathrobe in the upper right corner of her home, as well as a walnut ironwood DIY workbench in the lower left corner. Her wallpaper is the Cityscape Wall, and her flooring is the Monochromatic Tile Flooring.

Profile Piper is a perfectionist. She thinks she must do EVERYTHING just right. So when she tries something new, she gets frustrated and gives up if she can't do it right the first time. Maybe Piper needs to learn a new virtue, patience!
