I've been absolutely obsessed with Animal Crossing lately, so i thought i'd do some skins of the characters. Namely, some of the more popular felines- Rover, Punchy, Bob, Rosie (My personal favorite <3) and a bonus.... cat?
Of course, these aren't the only cats in the game. There's like, 300 villagers, from what i remember on the Wiki?
Rover is a special character in the Animal Crossing series. His job varies in each game, but his primary job is to set-up the playable character. Despite his name, which is usually connected with dogs, he is a cat, and is very friendly and hospitable towards the playable character and others. His name also originates from roaming, as he is a frequent traveler, traveling on a train in Animal Forest to Animal Forest e+, then onto a bus in City Folk, and then back onto the train in New Leaf.
Punchy is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games to date, except for Animal Forest. He and Cheri are the only non-islander villagers to make their debut in Animal Forest +, rather than the original Animal Forest for the Nintendo 64. His name may come from the word "punchy," which means being groggy or dazed from a series of punches. His Japanese name, 'Binta', means "a slap in the face". His picture quote from Wild World also relates to his easygoing demeanor. Punchy was featured on the cover of Animal Crossing, in the upper right window with Mitzi, another cat villager.
Bob is a lazy cat villager who has appeared in every game of the Animal Crossing series. His name is most likely based off the bobcat. His initial phrase, "pthhhpth," may be a reference to the sound a cat makes when coughing up a hairball (this is further supported by the information on the e-Reader card which indicates he tends to spit often while speaking). His picture phrase in New Leaf is a feline spin on the memetic phrase, "You only live once."
Rosie is a peppy cat villager that has appeared in all games in the Animal Crossing series to date and also appeared in Dōbutsu no Mori. (The animal crossing movie, if you didn't know.) She is also a widely popular Animal Crossing representative symbol, as she appears on many game covers and has merchandise based upon her appearance. As a peppy villager, Rosie will appear friendly, excitable, and hospitable towards other villagers and the player. Her initial catchphrase is a reference to how lighthearted peppy villagers act most of the time, being very cheerful and friendly to both the player and other villagers.
(She's my favorite <3)
Blanca is a special character in the Animal Crossing series. Blanca is a white cat that asks the player to draw them a face. Blanca's English name may come from the feminine Spanish word for "white," which is "blanco." It may also be a play on the word "blank," which refers to how their face is blank until the player draws one for them.
Blanca's gender is variable. Blanca is listed as male in Japan but female internationally. In Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf, Blanca has a distinct lazy/jock voice, both of which are male personality types.
As you can see, i haven't given her a face yet; So why don't you? Go ahead and give her a face- any face, as long as it sticks to the forum rules- and post it in the comments? If you don't know how to post a skin/picture, you need to go here and upload it the skin/picture, take the link from the last box, and use the Picture function in the top of the text editor, and place the link in the top box! Post the skin as well as a picture of it in action, if you want.
