"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 is a snooty villager, and as typical of snooty villagers, will initially be somewhat difficult to get along with. However, after spending enough time with her she will eventually warm up to the player, though will still occasionally make a rude or haughty remark. Sometimes during conversation, she will mention her sadness for the fact that she is a penguin and cannot fly. She will get on well with cranky and other snooty villagers.


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..
