- — Picture quote, Animal Crossing: Wild World
Goldie (キャラメル, Caramel) is a normal dog villager from the Animal Crossing series, appearing in every game in the Animal Crossing series to date. Her name serves as an allusion on the breed of dog she is; a Golden Retriever. Her catchphrase is a popular way to interpret the sound dogs make. She is the only character in Animal Crossing: Wild World to mention another video game in her picture quote. Her Japanese name is a reference to the golden brown confection, which matches her sweet personality and her coloration.
Goldie is a golden dog that looks like a Labrador/golden retriever with a few darker patches of beige on her muzzle, paws, feet, tail, and ears. She also has a beige spot on her left eye, of which her eyes are a slim, oblong shape colored into a chocolate brown with cream pupils. She initially wears a Red Check Shirt in Animal Crossing: Wild World, a shirt that is basically a "big plaid" red design. In Animal Crossing she wears a Hippie Shirt, and in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, she wears a dapper shirt, which is golden with red and green diagonal stripes. Her picture quote in Animal Crossing: Wild World mentions a Labrador, which may contribute to the theory that she is one as well.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Goldie has a normal personality. She is shy and caring, and may get upset easily. She is also sweet and cheerful. When she asks the player for favors, she often compliments their speed (even if it actually takes a while). She wakes up at 5 AM like other normal villagers, and will appear inside towards the middle of the day. She will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies; bug catching, fishing, fossil hunting, and the others. She will also give her picture to the player (Wild World only) after talking to her frequently, telling the player they are "the best friend ever." She may mention an unseen friend called Moppina, an imaginary friend which comes from her hygiene and cleanliness concerns. Goldie will get along well with peppy and jock villagers, appearing motherly or sisterly towards them. She will also get along with lazy villagers. She may become upset when talking to a cranky villager, due to their cruel nature which makes them appear rude when talking about other villagers.
Goldie's house does not have a specific theme. It has a Birch Flooring and a Blue Trim Wall. She also has a turntable that plays K.K. Bossa. She has a ranch bed, a Regal book case, a cream sofa and a green counter.
