Nosegay (アリンコ, Arinko) is a sweet anteater villager who has appeared in the original Animal Crossing, along with the Japanese versions. Her name, Nosegay, is another word for a bouquet of flowers or herbs. Her initial phrase, hoooonnk, relates to her nose, the key feature of any anteater. Noses comically make a honking noise, which comes from clown noses.


Nosegay is a fairly solemn-looking brown anteater. She has blue eyeliner. She has pink inside of her ears. Her initial shirt, the Loud Bloom Shirt, is a reference to her name as previously described.


Below is a brief description of the sweet personality. For more information, click here.

As a sweet villager, Nosegay will appear kind and calm in conversation with the player and other villagers. She will easily become upset or offended by other villagers, particularly lazy villagers who mislead her and cranky villagers who are often rude and blunt. She enjoys the usual hobbies, such as; fishing and bug catching, usually to keep her active. As with all other villagers, she will enjoy the player's company when they visit her house where she may tell the player to "ignore the mess" - a concern she shares with other sweet villagers. She will get along well with other normal villagers and peppy villagers, appearing motherly in conversation. She will also get along well with snooty villagers, who enjoy the good natured personality of sweet villagers who often compliment them.
