Maelle is a yellow duck with a dark orange beak and webbed-feet. She also has a reddish-brown 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 Wild World and 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 loves make-up and gossiping. As a snooty villager, Maelle 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. Maelle 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 jockvillagers 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.
Maelle's home in Wild World and City Folk has a very girly theme to it with furniture from the Lovely Series like the bed and the kitchen along with a creme sofa and a classic buffet. She also has a Pink Grid Shirt and a petal parson along with a plant and a parrot in a cage. Her Phonograph plays Cafe K.K.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Maelle's house is Japanese styled and her furniture primarily consists of the Alpine Series such as the table and bed and some furniture found in Japanese homes such as the Space Heater and air conditioner. Other items in her house include the Retro TV and Fridge, a range and a space heater. Maelle has a record player also playing Café K.K. and has the Kitschy Wall and Tatami Floor as her choice of wallpaper and flooring.
Maelle is one of those rare birds who can do no wrong. No matter how bossy she may seem, you can't help but forgive her. It must be the way she wears that flower in her hair - you can't help but adore it.
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.
