I've been an avid gamer for more than 20 years, and especially love the genres of horror, RPGs, and puzzle.
The Animal Crossing games are full of different critters for you to interact with. There are all kinds of animals, from cats and dogs to penguins and deer. One of the best parts of the game is having your favorite villager move in! Everyone has their favorites - here are mine for each different species of animal found in Animal Crossing!
My favorite alligator is Del. He has the 'cranky' personality, which for some reason I am partial to! I love his two-toned body and his long fangs. His initial phrase his "gronk". He is in the Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf games.
Anteaters are one of the more obscure animals found in Animal Crossing. My favorite anteater is the cute, 'normal' personality Annalisa. She is mostly white and says 'gumdrop' when you first meet her. She has so far only appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
There are quite a few bears in the Animal Crossing series. Chow is my favorite. He is another 'cranky' villager. He looks like a pink panda bear, and says 'aiya' at first. So far, Chow has been in all the Animal Crossing games!
There are also a lot of different colored birds in the series. My favorite bird is Anchovy, a 'lazy' personality villager. He is brown and his initial phrase is 'chuuurp'. Anchovy has also been in every Animal Crossing game so far.
The bulls are male cows in Animal Crossing. My favorite bull is Chuck. I'm partial to Chuck because he was one of the first villagers in my first ever town in the original game. Chuck is 'cranky' and says 'jerky' when you first meet him. Sadly, Chuck was only in the original Animal Crossing games.
The cats are some of my favorite villagers! My most favorite though is Punchy. In fact, Punchy is my all-time favorite Animal Crossing villager. Punchy is a 'lazy' villager who says 'mrmpht'. He has cute half-lidded eyes and is black and white. He has been in every Animal Crossing game yet.
There are male and female chickens in the Animal Crossing games. My favorite is Betty, a 'normal' personality chicken. She is tan and says 'cluckling'. She is very sweet, but sadly she only appeared in the original Animal Crossing games.
These are all females. My favorite cow is Belle. She looks like a standard black and white cow. Her initial phrase is 'cuddles' and she has a 'peppy' personality. For some reason, Belle was only featured in the original Animal Crossing games.
Cubs are the smaller bears of the Animal Crossing world! My favorite cub is Maple. She is a cute brown bear with a 'normal' personality. Her initial phrase is 'honey'. Maple has been in every single Animal Crossing game so far.
