Zucker (タコヤ,Takoya?) is a lazyoctopusvillager who first appeared New Leaf. His Japanese name refers to the Japanese snack "takoyaki", which is fried ball of dough filled with chopped octopus or many other types of foods. His English name is a reference to how octopi have suckers on their tentacles, as well as the German word for sugar which is zucker, or in reference to the candy. His catchphrase is possibly the sound an octopus may make when spitting up ink. He also shares his catchphrase with another villager, Bertha.

As a lazy villager, Zucker will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Zucker will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, compared to the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug, uchi and other lazy villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.
