“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 her appearance, as a tangerine, and 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.
Tangy is a cat with the appearance of an orange, complete with a small green leaf on her head. Her ears are salmon-pink and red inside. Although her arms and legs appear to be smooth, her face seems rather pitted, giving her more of the appearance of an orange. She wears a chain-gang shirt initially that is horizontally striped blue and white. She, Ketchup, Carrot, Zucker, and Merengue are some villagers that resemble food.
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 were not completed. Tangy may easily get upset in conversation when wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly the lazy, normal, jock, uchi, other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
Tangy's house has a citrus theme, which relates to her appearance. She has a pineapple bed, orange chair, lemon table, pear wardrobe, apple clock, pear dresser, watermelon table, and a lime chair. She uses the citrus wall and carpet. She has a Kiddie Stereo which plays Señor K.K.. Her house remains almost relatively unchanged throughout the entire series.
In New Leaf, Tangy's house has the same citrus theme except for a some new additions. She has K.K. Islandplaying on a high-end stereo, a cabana dresser, cabana bookcase, ukulele, apple tv, sunflowers, and a Huge Dekkoid.
