Norma Animal Crossing Guide

Norma: she’s cute; she’s a cow. She got some love recently with the strawberry cow song trend, as she has many color schemes associated with that aesthetic.

And while she’s been in the Animal Crossing franchise since 2003, she has only been in three games (not including Pocket Camp), so she’s pretty underrated! Her small horns and blue hooves make her easy to love, that’s for sure.

Bottom Line Upfront

Norma was exclusive to an e-reader card and amiibo for two of the three mainline games she has been in, so it’s easy not to know her. However, you’re not alone: most people probably also don’t know her.

Maybe she just came to your island, and you’re trying to find some information, or you went back to an old game and noticed she was there! Don’t worry. This article covers the basics + some about Norma, gifting ideas, basic traits, amiibo and e-reader information, and more.

Norma is a tall pink and blue cow. She has small yellow and orange striped horns. Directly below on the sides of her head are her tiny ears, which are a cream color on the outside and brown pink inside.

She has a brown tuft of fur on the top of her head. Her eyes are oval and black, with two eyelashes on each eye. The inside of her eyes has a small dot of white. She also has orange circles of blush on her cheeks.

Her snout is the same cream color as her ears, featuring two large black nostrils. The rest of her body is pink, except for the bright blue hooves on her arms and legs and the tip of her tail, which is cream.


Normal villagers like Norma are the coziest and generally easiest to get along with. They love reading, they love music, they’re dreamers, and they often talk about their family.

There are 77 Normal villagers in total, which is an only female-type personality, which means it has the most villagers in a women-only personality grouping! Yay, women!

Normal villagers get along with other normal villagers, as well as smug, lazy, and jock villagers. They’re more likely not to get along with snooty and cranky villagers.

Why You Want Norma on Your Island

Overall, normal villagers are a very safe and chill choice for any Animal Crossing game. Still, I especially like normal villagers in New Horizons because they get along with most other personality types.

Some of the most-loved villagers are also normal types, like Molly or Marina! Norma is no different from these treasured villagers. She’s very easy to love with a cute design and unique cow/normal type pairing!

Houses Across Games

Norma’s house style is a bit odd, going for a farmhouse-type look. She also has an RV, courtesy of New Leaf Welcome amiibo, which added new villagers that could only be added via an amiibo card. These villagers come with items and an RV, similar to the Sanrio amiibos.

Pocket Camp

norma animal crossing pocket camp

Norma was added to Pocket Camp in December 2020. She doesn’t have a fortune cookie, and is not attached to any special events. Her style is cute, and her main gift is preserves.

How to Get Norma in Pocket Camp

Norma’s map, which is gold rarity, can be found by Gulliver randomly on the island called Genji and Pals’ Island.

Level gifts:

  • At level 7, you’ll get a blue tartan tee and one sparkle stones
  • At level 9, you’ll get one sparkle stones
  • At level 15, you’ll get a bathroom sink craft request
  • At level 20, you’ll get Norma’s pic and one sparkle stones
  • At levels 25-70, you’ll get one sparkle stones every five levels

Happy Homes

#41 Norma’s first thought bubble reads, “It’d be dreamy to read quietly in a room filled with plants…” Her required items are a flower bed, a tiny library, and a titan arum; her favorite song is K.K. Stroll.

She is looking simply for a place for plants, so it’s very lenient on how you style! This is a great choice if you like more creativity in your redecorating.


Norma’s Amiibo card is of her in her RV, showing the inside, with the items in the RV (unlocked via her), including:

  • White brick wall
  • Basement floor
  • Cheese
  • Milk can
  • Milk canister
  • Milk carton
  • Mug
  • Kitchen refrigerator
  • Wood display stand
  • Worktable


norma animal crossing e-reader

Norma’s e-reader card is in Japanese, and her name translates to Isako; she was a part of series 3. Her card is green, with her standing in the middle, posed with her arms stretched out from her sides. On the top corners, it shows her species (cow) and number (#074).

The back goes into more detail, saying her shirt (red aloha), her star sign (Virgo), and her favorite phrase (Ufu).

Her profile reads, “Apparently, she’s copying the hairstyle of an actress she admires, but it doesn’t really look the same. But don’t you think it suits her?”

Her favorite saying is: “One’s own things are better than other people’s things

(It’s better to have something that’s your own than borrowing something from others, even if it seems better).”


Question: Is Norma Rare?

Answer: Yes, depending on the game. In Dōbutsu no Mori e+, she can only be obtained by e-reader; in New Leaf Welcome amiibo, she can only move in when scanned.
In Pocket Camp, you need her treasure map to invite her. So she’s much harder to get in said games than in New Horizons, where she’s in the game naturally.

Question: Are there Plushies of Norma?

Answer: No officially licensed plushies of Norma have been sold by Nintendo, but many small businesses sell their own versions and ideas!

Question: Is Norma Popular?

Answer: Norma is not very popular, due to the other Normal-type villagers that are more well-known and easier to get (like Molly)!


Norma is a very cute villager with a fascinating history of being exclusive to cards for so long. She is quite easy to like, and now that she’s more easily accessible in New Horizons, I think she’s essential to have on your island, even if it’s for a short time.

Her cow- and milk-themed items are adorable. She’s just too easy to love to say no to!
