― Ursala on Halloween night, Animal Crossing

Ursala (ネーヤ, Neeya?, Naiya) is a sisterly (formerly snooty) bear villager from the Animal Crossing series, originally exclusive to GCN games. Like all RV villagers, she was found in the data for Happy Home Designer. Her name comes from the Latin word "ursa", meaning bear, and the female name, "Ursula."

She has the music hobby.


Ursala in Animal Crossing

Ursala is a pink bear with a light yellow muzzle. She has black freckles on her cheeks and a brown patch of hair. Her eyes have small eyelashes on them, and the insides of her ears are lavender. Ursala initially wears the Diner Uniform in the GCN games, the Pastel-Stripe Tee (identical in appearance to the Diner Uniform, but renamed) in New Leaf and Pocket Camp, and the Striped Maxi Dress in New Horizons. In Animal Forest, she had a bigger smile, different eyebrows and less ginger hair, which made her look more like a peppy or normal villager.


Ursala's personality changes from a snooty villager in Animal Crossing to a sisterly villager in New Leaf.

In Animal Crossing

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

Ursala has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Ursala will first appear rude and arrogant towards the player, often talking about herself and her own experiences. She also speaks about the style and appearance of other villagers, usually other female villagers such as normal, peppy, and other snooty villagers. She will soon warm up to the player, confiding in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Ursala will not get along with lazy villagers due to them not caring about their appearance or the lazy villagers hating what she eats, and she won't get along with jock villagers because they will question her on her physical appearance and they won't worry about fashion. However, she will get along with cranky villagers due to their similar rude personalities, and usually normal villagers as well.

In New Leaf

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

Ursala is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Ursala will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a wasp. Like all sisterly villagers, Ursala is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Ursala has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature, sometimes talking to the player about her friendship with her old neighbor's son. Ursala may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy and normal villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with smug and snooty villagers due to their arrogant nature. Ursala may clash with cranky villagers due to their similarly stubborn personalities, but often end up becoming best friends.


In Animal Crossing, Ursala has a rather upper class house interior. She has a few Regal Series furniture, and a Classic Bed. She also has three paintings: a Dainty Painting, a Worthy Painting, and a Perfect Painting. Her wallpaper is the Plaza Wall and her carpet is the Checkered Tile. She plays Café K.K. on a turntable.

In New Leaf, Ursala's house and RV are based on a flower shop. She owns many plants, such as the moth orchid, the cypress plant and the weeping fig. She also owns a flower display case and a Cabana Bed. If she obtains a stereo, it will play K.K. Country.

In New Horizons, Ursala's house has no particular theme. She predominantly has wooden and pink furniture, from the Wooden set, Natural Garden set, and Ironwood set. Specifically, she has a wooden double bed and wooden end table in cherry wood and with pink bedding for the former, a natural garden table with a matching natural garden chair in oak wood, an ironwood kitchenette and ironwood DIY workbench also in oak wood, and a refrigerator and deluxe washer in pink. She also has a yucca plant and a cute music player in white. Her wallpaper is the café-curtain wall and her flooring is the green honeycomb tile.

Pocket Camp

Ursala was added to Pocket Camp in the April 26, 2021 update.

Ursala's preferred theme is cute, and she primarily gives paper as a reward. Her profile reads:

❝ Ursala's know-it-all attitude can get pretty annoying from time to time. Of course, it would be less annoying if she wasn't always right.❞

Profile Ursala may look cute, but she's very assertive-even pushy-when she wants to be. She's so subtle about it, though, that most folks don't even realize that they're doing exactly what she wants them to do.
