I'm not sick, I'm just Albino!
― Picture quote, Wild World


Ruby (ルナ, Runa?, Luna) is a peppy rabbit villager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name refers to the gem ruby, since her eyes are a deep red, which is an effect of albinism — a condition which, in the real world, is more common in rabbits than any other animal due to selective breeding. Her Japanese name, Luna, as well as her house being space themed, is likely a reference to the moon rabbit — a mythological creature in many Asian folklores, which is also often depicted as being white. Her picture quote is also a reference to albinism. Her birthday is on Christmas. She first appeared in Wild World.

She is featured on the cover for K.K. Adventure and she has the nature hobby.

Appearance[]

Ruby WW

Ruby in Wild World

Ruby resembles an American rabbit that is albino, with her having white fur and beady red eyes. She has three red freckles on both cheeks, round arched eyebrows, and melon-pink inside her ears. Her ears also have a slight pink gradient towards the tips, as if the fur there is thinner. Her initial shirt is the Bunny Shirt.

Personality

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, Ruby 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. Ruby 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.

House[]

In Wild World when the player first encounters Ruby in her house, she will have many items from the lovely series in her home, as well as two gyroids: the Slim Quazoid and Tall Quazoid. She will also have the Lunar Horizon wallpaper, and Moon Floor flooring, the only space-themed interior objects that relates to her Japanese name, Luna. She will not initially own any of the music-playing pieces of furniture (i.e. a Tape Deck, Retro Stereo, etc.), but after obtaining one, she will play K.K. Ska.

In New Leaf, her interior can relate to her name better, for she now has multiple pieces of furniture from the space-themed furniture set.
