Merengue (パティ, Pathi?) is a normal rhino villager who first appeared in New Leaf. Her name is Spanish for meringue, a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. Her phrase references what she looks like, a strawberry shortcake.


Merengue's body is light pink with a white layer that covers the top of her head and smaller horn that looks like whipped cream. She has rosy cheeks and small pink ears and has brown eyes with a triangle shape on the side of both eyes, and she has two eyelashes stemming from each eye. Merengue has white hooves and a tail with a peach colored puff at the end which looks like a strawberry. Her horn protrudes from the top of her snout and resembles a strawberry. Overall, she looks similar to strawberry shortcake. She initially wears a Chef's Shirt, suiting her food-like appearance. She, Tangy, Carrot, Zucker, and Ketchup all resemble food.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Merengue has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. She may conflict with cranky and uchi villagers. As a normal villager, Merengue will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


Merengue has a café themed home, with a few items from the sweets series and a chocolate fountain. There is a minimalist minitable with red tulips on top. Next to the table is a soft-serve lamp. There is a dessert case in front of the minimalist table. Merengue owns a refrigerator with a kitchen island nearby. She has a phonograph that plays K.K. Stroll.

Pocket Camp

Merengue's preferred theme is hip. Her profile says:

Merengue has always felt that she was born to bake. We're not sure where she got that idea.

At level 7 friendship, she will reward you with a chef's outfit and sparkle stones (x1) .

At level 9, she will reward you with sparkle stones (x1).

At level 15, she will request that you craft a candy machine.

At level 20, she will reward you with pic of Merengue and sparkle stones (x1).
