Maelle, pronounced "My-Ell" (アンヌ, Anne), is snooty duck and is from the Animal Crossing series. In Animal Crossing and Dōbutsu no Mori e+, she is an islander. She reappears in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, where she is a villager. The name, "Maelle" means "ambitious," a trait known among snooty villagers whom wish to become famous or rich. Her initial phrase, "duckling," reflects on her species. Her pic quote may relate to when she lived on the island.
Maelle is a yellow duck with a dark orange beak and webbed-feet. She also has a brown-red bob and initially wears green eyeshadow. Her eyes maintain a lazy eyed expression. In Animal Crossing she wears a red aloha shirt, like other female islanders. In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, she wears a heart shirt. When it rains, she uses a yellow umbrella.
Below is a brief description of the snooty personality. For more information, click here.
Maelle has a snooty personality, which means she will appear arrogant and snobbish towards the player and other villagers, usually criticizing their dress sense or fashion. She is very rude. But will appear friendly and nice in some discussions, provided they are mature and do not insult her lifestyle. She finds appearance important, and will get angry or upset if someone criticizes her sense of style or fitness, which means a conversation between her a jock personality may leave either one upset or angry. Her attitude towards the player changes, as she begins to warm up to them once the player talks to her frequently, but she will still retain some arrogance and subtle rudeness. She may not get on with lazy villagers, due to their lifestyles - lazy villagers having a strong interest in food or relaxing of which will make her uncomfortable, angry or upset when in conversation. She will upset peppy and normal villagers, usually by gossiping about them, and finding small things to judge them on. She will get along well with cranky, and other snooty villagers. Maelle sometimes refers to a boyfriend, but he is never seen or heard from. When you add a friend code or have a friend over and Maelle learns about you, whether she is in your town or not, she will tell everyone mean and silly rumors about you, calling you a "bell pincher" or "broke joker" in some cases.
Maelle's home in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk has a phonograph playing Café K.K. in her house. She also has pink wallpaper, ceramic tile flooring, a parrot, a lovely kitchen and bed, and a cream sofa. In Animal Crossing: Wild World she has a petal parasol, a grassy shirt, a cream sofa, a lovely kitchen, a classic buffet, a parrot, a red quinoa and a pink grid shirt. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf her home now has a record player also playing Café K.K.. She instead has kitschy wall and tatami floor. It now consists of the alpine series, a dandelion, a drip pail, a sink, a retro fridge, an air conditioner, a range and a space heater.
- As an islander in Animal Crossing, she has a favorite fruit and a fruit that she is allergic to. Feeding her the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of her dropping money bags. Maelle loves Apples and is allergic to Oranges.
- On the back of the Animal Crossing box, Maelle is featured right next to the "Get Connected!" section of the text, to the left. She is one of the few villagers in any of the Animal Crossing games to ever be featured on a box of the game.
