"SHRIEKING SUGARCUBES!"Pate (ナッキー, Nakki?) is a peppy duck villager in the Animal Crossing series. Pate's name probably derives from the French word "pâté", a meat dish usually formed from the liver of a duck or goose, meaning that her name should most likely be pronounced "Pa-tay", rather than "Pay-te". Pate has appeared in every game so far. Her initial phrase is a reference to the sound ducks make, "quack".
— Picture quote, Animal Crossing: Wild World
Pate is a blue-gray duck with big pink cheeks and short brown hair. Her eyebrows are very anxious looking, giving her the appearance of being in distress or confusion. Sticking with the common peppy trait, she has 'cute' beady looking eyes. Pate is sometimes mistaken for a boy or a snooty villager, perhaps because of her appearance and/or her name.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Pate is a peppy villager, meaning she is filled with endless spirit and loves to participate! She can be seen walking out and about, even on those rainy days. As Pate believes the glass is always half full, she is optimistic friendly villager that is (to some people) a lot of fun. Pate can be easy to befriend and she will listen to what you have to say. However, she can be quick to put words in your mouth, especially when concerning her current hobby. She can also be self centered and needy. If you have been ignoring her, she will give you a rude look when you wave to her. Despite this, Pate can be a somewhat good friend when you learn to cope with her selfish ways. When befriended she becomes more open and does not hesitate in sharing gifts with friends.
Pate's house has many items from the Classic Series including a Classic Bed, Classic Table and a Classic Bookcase, and even a Classic Vanity. Pate also has the mini and mega Freakoids. She owns a Turntable, which plays K.K. Dirge (but in New Leaf, this is replaced with K.K. Steppe) and a Regal Sofa. Pate's wallpaper is the Stone Wall and her carpet is the Opulent Rug.
