There is a range of personality types that can be found in Animal Crossing, and they are also specific to male and female characters. Female personality types include snooty, peppy, sisterly, and normal. At the same time, male personality types include cranky, jock, lazy and smug.
While some personality types can get a bad reputation like snooty, smug, and cranky villagers, sisterly villagers are one of the more pleasant personality types.
Bottom Line Upfront
Sisterly villagers refer to someone as being sisterly in the sense that they can be honest, blunt, supportive, and loving towards you (much like people would describe their own sisters). This is also why in previous versions of Animal Crossing, sisterly villagers were referred to as big sister villagers. While initially blunt and direct, sisterly villagers become very loving and supportive over time as you become closer to them; and they are lovely villagers to have on your island!
In Animal Crossing New Horizons, you can get a sisterly villager as a starting islander, and there are a total of 26 available sisterly villagers of a range of different species. All sisterly villagers are female, and the most common types are Bears.
What Kind of Villagers are Sisterly Villagers?
Sisterly Villagers as a personality type were only introduced into the Animal Crossing Series from New Leaf onwards! In this sense, Sisterly villagers are still quite new, although there are lots that are already known about Sisterly villagers!
Some of the keywords used when describing Sisterly villagers are;
- rude and or blunt
- down to earth
Anyone who has a bigger sister then may understand where the name ”Sisterly” villager comes from! In fact, some people also refer to the ”Sisterly” villager category as the ”Big Sister” type. Like all other villager types, and indeed like all other people that you may know, your perception of Sisterly villagers is likely to change the better that you get to know them!
While initially, Sisterly villagers can be described as rude and blunt (although personally, I would describe this as a direct communication style which is not necessarily a bad thing as I am also quite direct), Over time, as you get to know them, they reveal their softer and more caring side (again like big sisters, they can be tough when you need it but also support when you need that too!)
Sisterly Villagers vs. Other Villager Types
Sisterly villagers can be described as rude or blunt, in the same way, that many would describe Cranky villagers, although sisterly villagers are much nicer and more pleasant additions on your island! You would think that this similarity would mean that sisterly and cranky villagers would get along, but when you add two stubborn people together, it never ends well, and the same friction can be found between Cranky and Sisterly villagers.
Despite this, Sisterly villagers do get along well with most other villagers, even cranky ones, with time! Sisterly villagers get on especially well with normal and peppy villagers as they can get along and support one another very easily. While they mostly get along well, they can also clash with Smug and Snooty villagers (hardly surprising as Smug and Snooty villagers are so judgemental and rude, and hardly anyone seems to get along with them!)
Sisterly Villagers on Your Island
In Animal Crossing New Leaf, you cannot get a sisterly villager as a starting villager on your island! However, this was changed with the release of Animal Crossing New Horizons, where you are guaranteed a sisterly villager as a starting resident. On my island, I got Agnes, who I absolutely love and have worked hard to keep on my island ever since! Again as their personality unfolds as you get to know them, I would never describe Agnes as rude, but perhaps this is because we are now besties! In fact, Agnes is always a smiling and welcoming face that I am always super happy to see (and she is happy to see me too)

Sisterly villagers are lovely warm, and supportive people who are always happy to see you!

I would recommend persevering and looking past sisterly villagers’ initially less attractive qualities like their bluntness and directness.
You would be lucky to have some sisterly villagers on your island! If you are playing Animal Crossing New Horizons, you will have already met some sisterly villagers as they are starting villagers on your island.
