"I wonder if now is the best time to plant some dirt on someone."
— Chief, City Folk
Chief (チーフ, Chief?) is a cranky wolf villager that appears in all games from the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase, "harrumph," is a sign of boredom or annoyance, often related to cranky villagers. His name may be a reference to the leader of a wolf pack; sometimes called the chief.



Chief is a deep orange wolf with a pointed snout, and perky ears. Because of his sophistication and long eyelashes, he may look like a snooty villager, and more like a fox than a wolf. His paws and muzzle are white in color, and his ears tipped dark brown. Initially, he wears the Red Bar Shirt. His eyes appear to be half closed. On rainy days, he carries the Elegant Umbrella. His catchphrase is "Harrumph."


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood, and are more difficult to befriend than other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Chief will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Chief will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.


Initially Chief has a few beds in his house; but in games like Wild World, he has a bunch of clocks instead of beds. He favors robo and construction themed items and furniture. He has the Metal Floor and Industry Wall. If Chief has a stereo in his house, it will play DJ K.K.. The song's intense rhythm matches the theme of his house and his personality. In Animal Crossing, he has various Modern items, as well as an assortment of clocks.
