Bunnie (リリアン,Ririan?, Lilian) is a peppyrabbitvillager from the Animal Crossing series. Her English name comes from the type of animal she is, a bunny, and her catchphrase is a phrase that matches her peppy personality. Her design is based on the ringo usagi, a method of cutting apples to make them look like rabbits.
She is on the back of the City Folk game box, appearing to be running. She has appeared in every game up to date. She appears on the album covers for Mr. K.K. and K.K. Country.
Bunnie is a chalky, burnt-orange rabbit with a creamy beige face and arms that are tipped the same color as her head; her bunny tail and legs are the same color, too. Her face has pink blush and a nice, welcoming smile. Her eyes are styled in a pointy diamond-like way, and her ears are peachy orange on the inside.
Her initial clothes appear to be the Lotus Shirt, which is turquoise blue with pink flowering lotuses patterned all over it. While her initial shirt in the N64 and GCN versions is a Flicker Shirt and she wears a Jade Check Print in Animal Crossing City Folk as her initial shirt.
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, Bunnie 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. Bunnie 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.
From Animal Forest to City Folk, Bunnie's house has stayed mostly the same, with a few minor changes in the installments. She has many pieces from the Lovely Series and the Regal Series, such as the Lovely End Table, Regal Vanity, and Lovely Chair. Other furniture in the N64 and GCN games includes the Papa Bear and two shirts, the Red Check Shirt and the Candy Gingham Tee with a Lovely Stereo in the back of her house.
In Wild World and City Folk, she has the Mama Bear and the Green Bed. Her choice of flooring and wallpaper is the Wood Paneling on her walls and a Parquet Floor in all games except for New Leaf.
In New Leaf, Bunnie's house has changed drastically from the past games, with a much more modern theme and lacking furniture from the Lovely Series. She has different pieces of furniture that helps add a modern theme towards her house, including two Regal Sofas, a Pine Table with a Mama Bear, a small and medium magazine rack, and a House Plant.
