"I'm just that cool."
— Picture quote, Wild World
Gwen (ポーラ, Paula?) is a snooty penguin villager that has appeared in every game in the Animal Crossing series. Gwen's English localized name is a play on her species name: PenGUIN. Her initial phrase references the cold, as words are a stutter in cold temperatures. It is quite similar to Roald's, Cube's and Aurora's.



Gwen is a white and purple-ish penguin. She has a dark purple curl on the top of her head and large eyes with magenta eyeshadow and black prominent eyelashes. Her wings/arms are dark purple with white tips. Gwen's beak and feet are a yellow-orange color.


Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Gwen has a snooty personality, which means she loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Gwen 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, confining in them about their own feelings but still keeping subtly rude. Gwen 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.


Gwen's house is very chic and musical styled, the furniture mostly comes from the Classic, Regal, and Ranch series, as well as two instruments and a Phonograph, which will play Cafe K.K.. In Animal Crossing, Gwen's house has a huge amount of the Classic Series, including a Classic Sofa and a Classic Table, including a Phonograph that plays Café K.K..
