This article is about a personality. For the anteater villager, see Snooty (villager).
TomNookNL The title of this article is conjectural. An official name for the article's subject has not been found, so it has been given a fitting title by editors. If there is an official name, it is requested that Snooty be moved to the correct name.

Snooty villagers (オトナ Otona, or あたし Atashi) (sometimes called Snobby) are female characters in the Animal Crossing series. They are called snooty villagers because they act more mature and higher-class than other villagers. They are usually portrayed wearing makeup and high-end clothes that match their style, and their homes appear luxurious, though there are some exceptions. As of now, there are 65 snooty villagers.


Snooty villagers are well-spoken and sometimes appear offensive and rude towards other villagers, including the player. They are self-centered, hot-tempered, and sarcastic, but if the player talks to them often, they open up and become more kind, sometimes giving the player lessons in fashion. However, this doesn't prevent them from making the occasional scathing comment. Snooty villagers usually have exotic or upper-class names, or names relating to high-value items and gemstones, making them easy to distinguish when talking to villagers around the town.

Snooty villagers go to sleep at 3:00 AM in the original Animal Crossing and wake up at 9:00 AM. In Wild World, and City Folk they go to sleep at 3:30 AM, and wake up at 9:00 AM. In New Leaf they wake up at 9:30 AM and sleep at 2:00 AM. Like the peppy and normal villagers, they read "Ms. Nintendique" frequently, coming out with quotations from the magazine such as what their lucky item of the day is, or saying that they bought so much blush that the magazine gave them an item, which they then give to the player. They will often talk about Gracie and how much they love her clothing. They also frequently talk about the unseen magazine, Chic (villager species) Monthly.

They will find it difficult to socialize with most villagers, who have conflicting lifestyles to their own. They do not understand how lazy villagers can relax and not worry about their physical appearance. They also cannot fathom how jock villagers exercise or talk about exercising seemingly constantly and not worry about fashion; a jock villager's comment on the snooty villager's fitness will anger them. Normal villagers usually do not get along with them, and on most occasions both villagers criticize each other or the normal villager gets offended by the snooty villager's criticism. Peppy villagers sometimes, without knowing, let their ideas come out; for example, a peppy villager may say "You know you're always rude...", leading the snooty villager to leave the conversation annoyed. Uchi villagers likely won't get along with them, due to snooty villagers' tendency to talk about them behind their backs. They get along with cranky villagers, who share their maturity and viewpoints on life, and smug villagers as well, due to their similar interests in fashion.

In City Folk, when you talk to snooty villagers in the city, they will sometimes do the irritation emote before saying anything to you.

In New Leaf, when they have been befriended, snooty villagers will give the player medicine if they speak to them after being stung by bees.

In Happy Home Designer, they turned into housewives and got especially interested in cooking and housecleaning. When they're at the restaurants they say that they would never be able to cook in the same way despite they have years of experience behind or they're envious that someone cooks better than them. They often talk about unknown generic neighbours comparing their lifestyle to themselves: of course Snooty's habits are always better than others. They're even more kind than in ACNL, having been "replaced" in the role of the most mischievous by the Uchi personalities.


Below are some (not all) quotes made by snooty villagers.

  • Oh hey! I've been hearing people talk about you. They're saying you don't speak politely. Really, being polite is the easiest thing in the world. Just say "please" a lot. As in, "please share your <dessert> with me, or else!" Or, "please don't spread rumors about me, or else!" Got it, <catchphrase>?"
  • Stop shouting! I'm right here, I can hear you fine, <catchphrase>!
  • Oh, <player>, you're priceless, you know that? You're like a peppy little bag of fun, <catchphrase>!
  • <player>, you do talk a lot, you know that, <catchphrase>?
  • You filthy ogre! I hope you get stung by a thousand bees!
  • NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE! I'm saying, that's a nice <furniture> you've got there.
  • Is that how you get your kicks, <catchphrase>?!
  • <Lazy Villager name>, I hear you've been eating a lot of diet <dessert> lately?
  • I don't want to live in a world where I have to eat sugar-free cookies...
  • Ooooooh, I got tricked! <catchphrase>! You should NEVER trust Redd!
  • (if met in a dream) My memories are a little fuzzy. I've got to keep reminding myself. I'm a <species> named <name>...I'm a <species> named <name>!
  • "Now, what does Chic <species> Monthly say about televisions and interior decorating? Well whatever, I think your <TV> casts a happy glow in your home."
  • When at Jock Villagers house: "Well hello, <player>. Here to visit <jock villager> as well? How interesting!
  • When at Jock Villagers house: "I think <jock villager> is just thrilled to be hosting this get-together like this. I mean let's face it... the classiest party guests in (town) are here. You and me!"
  • So I'd really like to give you a/an <item>, <player>. You can also thank <villager> since I'm regifting a gift he gave me. Wait, don't actually thank him!
  • When at Jock Villagers house:"Should we peek inside <jock villager's> <storage>? It's probably packed to the ceiling with back issues of Muscles and Hot Yoga Monthly."

Picture Portraits

Below is only relevant to Wild World.

Snooty villagers will ask you the following question to trigger their portrait-giving sequence:

"This may sound sudden to but... You do have siblings right?"

Responses will be:

  • "Why do you ask?"
  • "Nope"
  • "I don't know."

By choosing "I don't know", and after a tirade about being mysterious, she will reply by saying:

"What would you say if I gave this to you? This is very rare."

  • In New Leaf, snooties have the lowest pitched voice of the female personalities.
  • In New Leaf on the villager's birthday, upon handing them a present, the villager may say "Aww, you shouldn't have! No wait, strike that. Reverse it. I'm glad you did." This is a quote/catchphrase from Gene Wilder's character in the 1971 film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
  • In New Leaf, if the player is a female, Snooty villagers are hard to make them angry while hitting with a Net.
