Rio (デジャネイロ, Dejaneiro?, De Janeiro) is a peppy ostrich villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name is shared with the Brazilian city of Rio De Janeiro, known for its flamboyant carnivals, which she seems to reflect with her bright colored appearance. Rio is also an uncommon gender neutral name. Her initial catchphrase is a reference towards her species, since newly hatched ostriches are called "chicks". She only appears in the early games of the series.



Rio from Animal Crossing

Rio is a bright red ostrich with orange stars on her cheeks, a little bit of brown hair on her head and a multicolored tail. She also has purple eye shadow and a blue eyelash. Her initial item of clothing is the red scale shirt, the opposite of Sandy's shirt. At first glance, the player may think that she is a snooty villager, due to her appearance (particularly her make-up).


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, Rio 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. Rio 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.


Her house has a unique look to it. She has many items from the Cabana Series, such as the cabana lamp, as well as some gyroids and congo drums. She has the gold stereo, which plays K.K. Samba.

Profile Rio has such a fixation on healthy food that's almost UN-healthy. Eating fruit is all well and good, but Rio's always falling for the latest health food craze... even if it involves eating tree bark.
