We're friends, so I won't gnaw on your legs, even though I'm starving.
― Picture quote, Wild World
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.


Alfonso'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.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Alfonso 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. Alfonso will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with 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 and uchi villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.


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.

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.

Role in the Animal Crossing Movie

Alfonso was also a major character in Dōbutsu no Mori. He caught bugs and dug up fossils with Yu, a human character in the 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.

Profile Alfonso has an odd hobby: dreaming. That crazy croc spends more time in bed than he does anywhere else. His one ambition is to spend all his time in bed, asleep. When people ask him why, he always say "I can dream, can't I?"
