Plucky (パタヤ, Pataya?) is a peppy chicken islander from the Animal Crossing series, originally exclusive to the later GCN games. When she returned in New Leaf, she changed into a sisterly villager. Her name comes from the word "pluck," the way humans pick chicken feathers. She has the play hobby.
Plucky returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town. Unlike previous iterations, she is now a regular villager and not an islander.
AppearancePlucky is a brown chicken with a pale maroon beak. The top of her head is white with a flower on the right side. She also has white eyelashes. During her time as an islander, she wore the Red Aloha Shirt. In New Leaf, however, she sports a Cool Tank instead. In New Horizons she wears a tropical tee.
PersonalityPlucky's personality changes from a peppy islander in Animal Crossing to a sisterly villager in New Leaf.

Plucky will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Plucky may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others, and she may have trouble getting along with normal villagers.
In the Gamecube games, the initial layout of her home only contains the Red Aloha Shirt and the Blue Aloha Shirt, the same as other islanders.
In New Leaf, Plucky's house has many of the same special new items that come with her Amiibo card and show up in her RV, including a Shower, Towel basket, Watermelon, Coconut juice, Sand castle, and two beach chairs. She has the Tropical vista wallpaper and Sandy beach floor, and K.K. Island will play if she obtains a stereo.
In New Horizons, Plucky's house again has a beach theme. Every color variation of the Surfboard item lines her back wall, and in front of them is a Stall with a berry Frozen-treat set on top, next to a blue Menu chalkboard. She also has a blue Casette player and lawn chair, and a Rattan end table with a second soda Frozen-treat set sitting on top. She uses an oak Ironwood DIY workbench for crafting and once again has the Tropical vista as wallpaper and Sandy-beach flooring.

Plucky's preferred theme is rustic. Her profile says:
There's nothing Plucky loves more than lying out on a tropical beach and sipping on a coconut. Just don't call it "roasting," OK?
