You love to yak, don't you? Me TOO! Let's talk!
― Winnie, New Leaf

Winnie (マキバスター, Makibasutā?, Makiba Star) is a peppy horse villager from the Animal Crossing series. She was absent from Wild World and returns in City Folk. Her name might be a reference to horse whinnying or winning a race akin to Victoria, while her catchphrase is a mix between hay; a common horse food, and the catchphrase A-OK. She has the fashion hobby.


Winnie in Animal Crossing

Winnie is a brown horse with a white nose and a yellow star on her forehead, which is higher up in Animal Crossing. She has blue inner ears and dark brown hair, that appears in a ponytail. She initially wears a cow tee.


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, Winnie 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. Winnie 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 Animal Crossing, Winnie's house has a lovely theme, with almost every item from the Lovely series. She also has a baby bear and a gerbera in her house. K.K. Bossa plays in her house. Along with the furniture from the Lovely Series she also has the rug and wall.

In New Leaf, her house really doesn't have a theme with 2 pieces of furniture from the Classic series and a gold stereo, a kitchen sink, a cream sofa, a small magazine rack, a retro fridge, a green lamp, a pachira, a dracaena, and a tea set. Her stereo plays My Place. Her wall is the pastel dots wall and her flooring is the kitschy tile.

In New Horizons, her house takes more of a modern outdoorsy twist with 2 iron garden chairs and an iron garden table with a tea set on it, a garden swing, a hammock, a brick oven, a cute music player, a garden bench, some firewood, and a garden faucet. On her stereo she now plays K.K. Country. Her wall is the Backyard Fence wall and her flooring is the backyard lawn.

Profile Winnie's pretty easy to get along with, but whatever you do, don't mention the term "horse sense" to her. She can't figure out if it's a compliment or an insult, so it just makes her feel confused.

  • The star on her forehead might be attributed to the fact a small marking on a horse's forehead is literally called a "star".
  • She shares her birthday with Harriet. Both have their birthdays on January 31st.
