“They say cats hate citrus. THAT REALLY HURTS MY FEELINGS!”
― Picture quote, Wild World
Tangy (ヒャクパー,Hyakupā?) is a peppycatvillager that appears in every game of the Animal Crossing series. The name "Tangy" comes from the sharp taste of citrus fruit. Her Japanese name is a contraction of "100 Percent" and refers to juice concentrate. She appears on the album cover for K.K. Birthday. She has the music hobby.
Tangy is an orange-yellow cat who resembles the orange fruit, complete with a small green leaf on her head, possibly being stylized hair. Her ears are salmon-pink and red inside. Although her arms and legs appear more smooth, her face seems rather pitted, giving her more of the appearance of an orange. She initially wears a chain-gang shirt that is horizontally striped blue and white. However, in New Horizons she wears a green and white retro dress instead. She also has a visible navel when given a different outfit, a visible pun referring to navel oranges.
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, Tangy 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. Tangy 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 New Leaf, Tangy's house has the same citrus theme except for some new additions. She has K.K. Island playing on a high-end stereo, a cabana dresser, a cabana bookcase, ukulele, apple TV, sunflowers, and a Huge Dekkoid.
In New Horizons, Tangy's house has a smooth orange and white exterior with a white wooden door and green slatted roof. The interior has the orange wall and the green retro flooring. She has a pear bed, a pear wardrobe, an orange clock, an orange end table, a blood orange end table, a juicy-apple TV, an apple chair, a yellow peach chair, a yellow peach surprise box, an infused-water dispenser, an orange cardboard box, and a peach cardboard box. She also has a palm-tree lamp. On the wall hangs a fruit basket, a fruit wreath, and a coconut wall planter.
