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

We found it, we found it, we found the fossils hey!
― Alfonso, with Yū, Geijōban Dōbutsu no Mori

Alfonso (アルベルト, Aruberuto?, Albert) is a lazy alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. He also appeared in Geijōban Dōbutsu no Mori as a major character and Yū's best friend. His catchphrase, "it'sa 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 in Animal Crossing

Alfonso is an alligator with an yellow-orange color, and has a white stomach and chin. Like any alligator, Alfonso has a nose that sticks out and has a huge chomper. He has 5 brown rings on his face and has baggy blue eyes.

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'sa 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.


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 sisterly 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 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 Geijōban Dōbutsu no Mori, his house features many of the items from the lovely series, which is a feminine set.

In New Leaf, Alfonso's house has become significantly more bright and very playroom like. Although there is no particular furniture set in his home, it has 2 items from the minimalist series, the minimalist bed and the minimalist dresser. It also has 2 mini rhythmoids and a men's toilet.

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.
