"Nyuuuk nyuk nyuk nyuk!"
— Chip, after being handed a fish
Chip (うおまさ, Uomasa?) is a beaver that hosts the Fishing Tourney in all games except Wild World. Chip sets up his stand outside Town Hall at 6:00 AM, and waits for players and villagers to bring him fish to measure at the weigh-in station. A fish brought to him that breaks the record of the day yields a prize. He eats every fish brought to him, and sometimes measures fish by eating them inch by inch. The Tourney ends at 6:00 PM.

Chip posts the winner of each tourney on the bulletin board. Winners receive a letter from Chip with a gleaming gold trophy. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, players must receive their trophy by going into his tent between 6 PM and 9 PM to see the ceremony. If the player misses the ceremony, or their pockets are full, they will receive their trophy in the mail the next day.


In Animal Forest, Animal Crossing, and Animal Forest e+

In Animal Forest, Animal Crossing, and Animal Forest e+, the Fishing Tourneys are held on the Sundays of June and November. Only fish from the bass family will count. Chip will measure it by chewing it up inch by inch. To maximize the number of items you can receive from Chip, be sure to give him the fish in order of smallest to largest.

In City Folk

He plays the same role as before, with a few changes in appearance times. Fishing Tourneys occur one Saturday a month in all months except June, July, August, and September. Chip now also hosts Fishing Tourneys based around one specific type of fish, but will eat any fish given to him. Once you have gotten all the types of fish, he will award you with the Golden Rod.

In New Leaf

Chip no longer sets up his stand at the Town Hall anymore. Instead, he can be found in the event plaza, where he does the same role to evaluate the fish and see if you have the longest one in town. He will eat the fish after measuring them (unless the fish is too large for him to eat in one sitting, such as if it is a shark. In that case he'll take it with him to eat later). For every fish the player gives Chip that breaks the current record for that day's competition, a small prize will be given. If the fish is large for its species, he will give you a special piece of the fish set, which is only obtainable this way. If the player is in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, they will be standing on the plinth, waiting for their trophies. Once you have gotten all the types of fish, he will award you with the golden fishing rod.

  • His stand has a framed picture of him next to a koi.
  • He will not eat a special fish such as a stringfish.
  • His eating habit resembles that of an otter more than a beaver. Beavers are known for eating or chewing mostly plants (like wood).
