"This is my star smile."
— Picture quote, Wild World
Peanut (ももこ,,Momoko?) is a peppysquirrelvillager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name comes from "peanut", a food squirrels like to eat. Her French and Italian names are also based of the word for peanut in those languages, "arachide."
Peanut is a pink squirrel with a purple stripe on her head bordered in white, a feature that Ricky and Filbert also share. She has large eyes and a wide smile. She has a dark pink color on her paws and ear innards. Peanut initially wears the Beatnik Tee.
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, Peanut 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. Peanut 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, Peanut's house has more of a girly appearance compared to the other games. She has a pink game shelf, some Red Tulips, and a Hi-Fi Stereo playing K.K. Salsa. She also has a few items from the Lovely Series and the Blue Series. She seems to have a kitchen area too, since she has a Retro Fridge, a microwave, and a Lovely Kitchen all in one corner. She has the Parlor Wall and the Dotted Flooring for her wallpaper and flooring.
Peanut is pretty popular with the general populace. How could anyone not like such an adorable squirrel? And a pink one at that! Add in for cheery attitude and the fact that she's cute as a button, and you'll adore her too!
