...Who knows where life might take me? Someday, I might move to another town, and I'll take my letters with me.
― Stella, Animal Crossing

Stella (アクリル, Akuriru?, Acryl) is a normal sheep villager from the Animal Crossing series. Her name comes from the Latin word "Stella" which means star. Her initial phrase, "baa-dabing" is a pun on the phrase "bada bing" to match her species. Stella appeared in all games up to Animal Forest e+, but was removed from Wild World onward until her return in New Leaf, where she makes an appearance in all subsequent main games in the series and Pocket Camp. She was, however, found in the data for Happy Home Designer.

Stella 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.

She has the nature hobby.


Stella in Animal Crossing

Stella's original design

In Animal Forest, Stella is a pink sheep with a black nose, orange blush, and pink wool. She appears to be frowning, due to her mouth meeting at her nose, and may be mistaken for a snooty villager with this appearance (likely the reason why she was redesigned for Animal Crossing). In all games afterwards, she is redesigned as a pale sheep with a purple wool coat. Her eyes are closed and she has a small smile. She wears pink blush on her cheeks. Additionally, she bears a strong resemblance to Wendy, another sheep villager introduced in the same game.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Stella has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Stella may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Stella will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


In Animal Crossing, Stella has many instruments in her house including an ivory piano, a metronome, a harp, and a violin. She also has some regal furniture, which are two regal chairs and a regal lamp. There are also two Gyroids: a mega Sputnoid and mini Dinkoid; and two paintings: the Moving Painting and Rare Painting. Her carpet is "Daisy Meadow" and the wallpaper is "Meadow Vista", obtainable from Saharah and Wendell, respectively.

In New Horizons, Stella's home has items from the Wooden series, some of which are customized with pink sheets. The music that plays in her house is Only Me. She retains the same wallpaper in New Leaf but has the Dark Herringbone Flooring.
