“We're friends, so I won't gnaw on your legs, even though I'm starving.”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, which is also a reference to Mario. His name may be a reference to alligator, which starts the same way as his name.
― Picture quote, Wild World
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. 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 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.

Role in the Animal Crossing Movie
Alfonso is first seen when Ai delivers the five hundred pies. Soon after they meet, Yu, the kid ninja that sometimes comes to the Animal Village, chases a butterfly with his net. He is Alfonso's friend. Alfonso runs back into his house to get his net to chase after the insect with him. Later on in the movie, you see them digging holes all over the place by the beach to find an ammonite. Then Rosie, another character, says she's seen many more of them somewhere else. Alfonso, Yu, Rosie, Ai, and another character, Margie, go find the ammonite cluster in a boat in the giant cave. While going into the cave, Rosie points them into the wrong direction, for she's the one who knew about the ammonite in the first place, and says right. As they head down a huge waterfall, Rosie yells, "Sorry, it was left!" (Next is the scene where Pascal comes in). Back in the cave, their boat has crashed onto a giant rock.
- Alfonso's birthday lands on the same day that New Leaf was released in North America.
