Patty (カルピ,Karupi?) is a peppycowvillager who has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. Her name either relates to a "beef patty" or "cow pat" (another name for cow dung). Her Japanese name may come from 'karupisu', a Japanese milk-based soft drink. Her catchphrase is based off of "How Now Brown Cow", a phrase that helps children learn rounded vowel sounds and is also a greeting. She is the only bovine to appear in every game in the series.
Patty is a chocolate brown cow with a beige nose, yellow horns and hands as well as a tuft of brunette hair. Her initial shirt is the citrus shirt, which matches her coloring. The Citrus Shirt is only available from Gracie, but is available at Able Sisters in City Folk and New Leaf. Patty carries a Gelato Umbrella on rainy days. She is possibly a Brown Swiss cow. She has a small smile.
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, Patty 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. Patty may easily get upset in conversation when wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly the lazy, normal, jock, uchi, 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.
In New Leaf, Patty's house is now different from past versions of the Animal Crossing games. Her home is filled with various outdoor items, making her house seem like a backyard. She owns an ocean sunfish and birdcage in the back. She also has a clothesline, hammock, and plant. She also owns a table and chair to the right of her house.
There's nothing worse than an excited cow. They get so worked up, they start blowing this bursrs of warm, muppy air out of their gaping nostrils. Fortunately for Patty, her pleaseant demeanor seems to make up for it all.
