They speak with chipper, bouncy voices and enjoy cheering when talking with player/players and other villagers; they are rarely discouraged from doing anything. They come out of their homes often. In the original Animal Crossing, they go to sleep at 12:00 AM and wake up at 7:00. In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk they usually go to sleep at 2:30 AM and wake up at 7:00 AM, and are always excited to see the player. They have short attention spans and wild imaginations. They express a number of aspirations which they will often share with the player such as their numerous claims to stardom as a pop star or diva. They have a tendency to say stereotypical peppy words and phrases like "omigosh!!!" and "like" (as in, "That is, like, so cool!"). When they are describing certain things, they often use "SOOOO!" and "totally!" They commonly clap while saying a long, drawn-out "Yaaaay!" to show excitement and tend to claim they are hyper because they eat candy frequently.
They find it easy to get along with other villagers, but may become the center of jokes and gossip created by snooty and cranky villagers, and when either of two are rude, peppy villagers are rude back to them. They get along with normal, lazy, and jock villagers, who naturally avoid making rude comments and share similar lifestyles with them, such as; food with lazy villagers, activities with jock villagers and typical, 'girly' discussions with normal villagers. They do not hesitate to talk to snooty and cranky villagers, but may annoy them with their conflicting habits, such as jumpiness, which conflicts with their refined stature.
