Zell (ネルソン, Nelson) is a smug deer villager that first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His initial catchphrase, "pronk," is a reference to the way deer may move by using all four legs simultaneously to jump up and down, and his name may derive from the word "gazelle", a type of antelope that look similar to deer.


Zell, despite being a deer, has the appearance of a blackbuck, a species of antelope. He is colored black with white on his eyes, mouth, and right ear. His arms are black with white on the hooves. His initial clothing is the Arctic Camo Shirt.


Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.

Zell has a smug personality. This means he will appear kind and gentlemanly when in conversation with the player. On numerous occasions, he will flirt with the player and admire them. Zell will occasionally talk about being into niche hobbies, like being a train fanatic or collecting plastic bottle caps. He will be very interested in fashion and will mention it often in conversations and letters.


On his stereo, Zell has K.K. D & B. His house displays two items of the Gorgeous Series.
