"The best way to let me know what you're after is by just going right up and touching it."
— Bettina, City Folk
Bettina (マルコ,,Maruko?) is an normalmousevillager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name bares no references to her character type or appearance, but her initial quote, "eekers," is a reference to the sound made by mice. Her Japanese name, 'Maruko', is a common girl's name in Japan.
Bettina is a dark red-orange mouse with yellow cheeks and yellow inner ears, as well as yellow paws and a yellow and orange striped tail. She has short, dark blonde hair swept to the right of her head. She initially wears the Chef Uniform. When it rains she will carry the Snowball Umbrella.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Bettina has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along with cranky, lazy, peppy and other normal villagers, but may conflict with snooty and uchi villagers. As a normal villager, Bettina 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 City Folk, Bettina's house has a kitchen theme to it. She has many kitchen items, such as the kitchen sink, the sink, the refrigerator, and the range. She also has a picnic table, and some Pothos. Her wallpaper is the Sweets Wall, and her flooring is the Sweets Floor.
Bettina's house in New Leaf is similar to it's City Folk incarnation, with the biggest difference being that she now owns a few Modern Wood items. She owns the Modern Wood Bed, the Modern Wood Shelf, and the Modern Wood Table. She displays a tea set, and a toaster on top of her Modern Wood Table. Her kitchen items return from the last game, with the range being replaced with a deluxe range, and the sink being nowhere to be found. Her Turntable plays K.K. Swing. Bettina's wallpaper is the Old Brick Wall, and her flooring is the Common Floor.
