- This article is about a personality from the Animal Crossing series. For the villager, please see Snooty (villager).
Snooty villagers (あたし Atashi, or オトナ Otona) (sometimes called Snobby) villagers are female characters in the Animal Crossing series. They are called snooty villagers because they act big-headed and arrogant in the games. They are usually portrayed wearing makeup and high-end clothes that match their style, and their homes appear luxurious, though there are some exceptions. However, when the player talks to them often, snooty villagers can be kind. Currently, there are 54 snooty villagers. They are bossy and intelligent. They wake up at 9:30am, and sleep at ___ (in New Leaf).
Snooty villagers are well-spoken and sometimes appear offensive and rude towards other villagers, including the player. They are self-centered, hot-tempered, and sarcastic, but if the player talks to them often, they open up and become more talkative, sometimes give the player lessons in fashion. They tend to wear a lot of makeup. However, this doesn't prevent them from making the occasional scathing comment. Snooty villagers usually have exotic or upper-class names, or names relating to high-value items and gemstones, making them easy to distinguish when talking to villagers around the town.
Snooty villagers go to sleep at 3:00 AM in the original Animal Crossing and wake up at 9:00 AM. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: City Folk they go to sleep at 3:30 AM, and wake up at 9:00 AM. Like with the peppy and normal villagers, they read "Ms. Nintendique" frequently, coming out with quotations from the magazine such as what their lucky item of the day is, or saying that they bought so much blush that the magazine gave them an item, and then they say, "Here, you can have it!" and give it to the player. They will often talk about Gracie and how much they love her clothing.
They will find it difficult to socialize with most villagers, who have conflicting lifestyles to their own. They do not understand how lazy villagers can relax and not worry about their physical appearance. They also can not fathom how jocks and worry about exercise and do 24/7 and not worry about fashion as well as they fall out when their fitness is criticized. Peppy villagers sometimes, without knowing, let their ideas come out - for example, a peppy villager may say "You know you're always rude...", leading the snooty villager to leave the conversation annoyed. With normal villagers, who they might get angry at them or sad due to offending them and annoying them.
In Animal Crossing City Folk, when you talk to snooty villagers in the city, They will sometimes do the irritation emotion before saying anything to you.
Below are some (not all) quotes made by snooty villagers.
- Oh hey! I've been hearing people talk about you. They're saying you don't speak politely. Really, being polite is the easiest thing in the world. Just say "please" a lot.
