“This is my new headshot!”
— Picture quote, Wild World
Tabby (トラこ,,Torako?) is a peppycatvillager in the Animal Crossing series, who has appeared in every game so far. Her name comes from the fact that she is a tabby cat. Her catchphrase sounds like "meow" except she says wow at the end. This is the feline version of Daisy's catchphrase.
Tabby is a pure orange cat with brown stripes on her face, purple eyelids (that can be mistaken for eyeshadow), white tipped paws, blushing pink cheeks, a red piggish nose with oval nostrils, and is always showing her teeth in what's neither a smile nor a frown. Her prominent nostrils and always exposed teeth make her appear possibly disfigured, as if she's missing lips and part of her nose. Because her appearance lacks feminine features besides for the blush on her cheeks, she is often mistaken for a male.
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, Tabby 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. Tabby 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.
Tabby's house in Animal Crossing and Animal Forest has a strong Asian-Like feel towards it, along with two Gyroids with a Retro TV and the computer. In Animal Forest, some villagers have a similar style to her house such as Dora and Nate's. In other games, Tabby finds Modern Series furniture appealing and likes the Illusion flooring and wall. In Wild World she has hardly any furniture when she first moves in, except a red sofa and a couple of other things. Later on, she may have a want for Chic furniture and Fossils. In City Folk, she has To the Edge playing in her house.
