Gaston (モサキチ,,Mosakichi?) is a crankyrabbitvillager in the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase and name suggest he is French, or from French origin. His name, Gaston, is a male French name. His initial phrase, "mon chou," is a play on words with "chou chou," a term of endearment. "Mon chou" is also a French term that some people might use on loved ones, such as "honey" or "sweetheart". Gaston's picture inscription in Wild World reads as "Sacre Bleu!," (Sacre Bleu translates to "confound!") further establishing his character as a Frenchman. In New Leaf, his picture quote, "An ear for an ear leaves everyone deaf", resembles a quote from Mohandas Karamchand "Mahatma" Gandhi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." He reappears in New Leaf. He, along with Marcel and Cousteau, is French. Gaston's Japanese name refers to his nose, which is rather big, and has a large mustache on it.
He is a yellow rabbit with blue inner ears, a small orange nose, a big mustache, brown feet and white paws. His eyebrows are pointed down, giving him a very serious, profound stare. Gaston's initial shirt is a Swell Shirt which has red, orange, and yellow diamonds on it. He resembles Bert.

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, Gaston 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. Gaston will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.
