“We found it, we found it, we found the fossils hey!”Alfonso (アルベルト, Aruberuto?, Albert) is a lazy alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. He also appeared in Dōbutsu no Mori as a major character and Yū's best friend. His catchphrase, "it's a me" is a reference to the famous Nintendo character, Mario. Furthermore, Alfonso and Mario are both Italian names. Alfonso wears the Big Bro's Tee (until New Horizons), which is also a reference to Mario. His name may be a reference to alligator, which starts the same way as his name. He has the play hobby.
― Alfonso, with Yu, Dōbutsu no Mori
AppearanceAlfonso's design is based on Nintendo's famous mascot Mario from the Super Mario Bros. series. Not only does he mimic Mario's famous "it's a me" quote as his initial phrase, but he also wears the Big Bro's Tee, which features the "M" emblem featured on Mario's cap, although the rest of the shirt is red, however, his shirt was changed in New Horizons to the Simple Parka. Alfonso's external appearance is a subtle reference to Yoshi, Mario's faithful dinosaur companion. He is a burnt-amber orange with darker circles on his face. Both his cheeks and belly are white and his eyes are similarly formed, although his eyelids are a light cyan blue.

In all the Animal Crossing games, except for New Leaf and New Horizons, his house is decorated with a few items from the Exotic Series and his walls are covered with the imperial wallpaper. In Animal Crossing he has four mini rhythmoids, two house plants, a toilet and a white boom box. His stereo plays Imperial K.K. and he owns a basement floor. In Animal Forest e+ his stereo instead plays Forest Life.
In Wild World he has three mini rhythmoids, a men's toilet, a house plant and a retro stereo which plays Forest Life and a charcoal floor. In City Folk his house is nearly the same as Wild World but the only difference is a missing rhythmoid. Oddly, in the Animal Crossing Movie his house features many of the items from The Lovely Series which is a very girly set.
In New Leaf Alfonso's house has become significantly more bright and playroom like. Although there is no particular furniture set in his home, it has 2 items from the Minimalist Set, the Minimalist Bed and the Minimalist Dresser. It also has 2 Mini Rythmoids and a Men's Toilet. If you go into his house with clothing items or furniture, he is more likely to ask you to trade.
In New Horizons, Alfonso's house is orange with a green common door and a green tile roof. The interior is designed to resemble a children's room, with a yellow playroom wall and green honeycomb tile. He has a colorful wooden-block bed and stereo. He also has natural writing desk and a natural writing chair. Additionally, he has a spring train set, a yellow throwback rocket, a blue toy box, a standing toilet, and a throwback dino screen. A writing poster hangs on the wall.
