Jambette (エスメラルダ, Esmeralda?) is a normal frog villager from the Animal Crossing series. As a normal villager, she will appear hospitable towards the player and be easy to befriend. Jambette's name seems to derive from the French "jambes", meaning "legs" - frogs' legs being a well-known French dish. Her initial phrase, "croa-kay", is a combination of "croak" (a sound frogs make) and "okay". This may be another French-based pun, as "croa-kay" is pronounced the same as "croquet", a game originating in France. Jambette is absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World but returns in Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Jambette is a green frog with lighter green cheeks, pink lipstick, blue eyeshadow, and black eyelashes. As makeup is often associated with snooty villagers, the player may mistake her for a snooty villager at first. She initially wears the Prism Shirt, a white shirt with differently-colored cubes on it.
Jambette has a normal personality, meaning that she will be friendly and motherly to the player. She will be easy to befriend and she will have an obsession with hygiene. As a normal villager, she will be open to all different personalities, meaning she will get along with most villagers. However when talking with snooty or cranky villagers, they will have a keen interest in gossip.
In Animal Crossing, Jambette has a playroom or daycare theme towards it, along with furniture from the Kiddie Series. 5 gyroids are in her house. These include the sproids and drilloids. She also has a gelato umbrella. Jambette has the checkered tile floor along with the kiddie wall. She owns no stereo.
- Sometimes, when talking to Blazel, a beta squirrel only accessible through hacking in Animal Crossing, the game will refer to Blazel as Jambette.
