"Now you can say you knew me when!"
— Picture quote, Wild World
Pango (パトラ,,Patora?) is a peppyanteatervillager from the Animal Crossing series. She has made an appearance in every game to date. Her name is a shortening of pangolin, also known as the scaly anteater, a mammal that lives in the tropical areas of Asia and Africa. However, pangolins are not actually anteaters; they belong to their own separate species. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to an anteater's nose as well as how they eat.
Pango is a dark blue spiny anteater with a sea-green muzzle and paws, wearing purple eyeshadow. Pango also has purple lining at the tip of her tail. She has a long nose and features long black eyelashes. Due to her make-up, she may be confused for a snooty villager. She initially wears a Subdued Print shirt.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often, and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Pango will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed. Pango may easily get upset in conversation when wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly the lazy, normal, jock, and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
