"I was just born with this creepy face! And I'll GET you one day, mate! GAAR har har har har!"
— Gonzo, Animal Crossing
Gonzo (ゴンゾー,Gonzo,Gonzo?) is a crankykoalavillager from the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase, "mate," is a stereotypical Australian term for a friend. His name may refer to the Muppet character Gonzo. However, this does not reflect his personality or species. He was originally only available in the original games, but has recently returned in Happy Home Designer.
Gonzo is a gray koala. He has slanted eyebrows that make him appear angry. He has large gray ears with pink inside of them and a tuft of gray hair on the top of his head. His eyebrows are white, and he initially wears the Earthy Knit.
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, Gonzo 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. Gonzo will also enjoy spreading rumors of other villagers.
Gonzo has a boxing ring theme for a house. He has quite a bit of the Professional Wrestling series. He has K.K. Rock playing in his house when he obtains a stereo. In Animal Forest, he has a Japanese theme to his house with three gyroids (Clankoids).
