Quetzal (ハチェット, Hatchet?) is a jock eagle villager from the Animal Crossing series series. His only appearance was in Animal Crossing. His name comes from the Nahuatl word "quetzal", a bird native to the rain forest regions of Central America. This ties in with the Native Mexican-style warpaint he appears to have on his cheeks. Strangely, a real quetzal is green.
His name may also be a shortened version of Quetzalcoatl, a Mesoamerican deity that is a mixture of a serpent and a bird. The name literally translates to "feathered serpent". His initial phrase "SKREE" is a reference to the sound many birds make.
Quetzal is a medium gray eagle with red war-paint color on both his cheeks and has a bright yellow beak with medium orange shaded in the middle and on the bottom of his head, there are slight specs of white. His feathers have orange, green, and white strips with his stomach completely white and his legs and talons are yellow with brown stripes. When he first moves into town, his initial clothing is the Rally Shirt.
