All hail my mustache!

Real men prefer, ballad, like, K.K. Ballad! *hums to it*
― Cesar, Dōbutsu no Mori

Cesar (アラン, Aran?, Alan) is a cranky gorilla villager. He has appeared in every Animal Crossing series game so far, including the movie, Dōbutsu no Mori. He is named after the Roman emperor, Julius Caesar, hence the catchphrase "highness", which reflects his sense of self-importance and an emperor's kingly status. His name is also likely a reference to the ape with a similar name from the Planet of The Apes series. He had a minor role in Dōbutsu no Mori, where he was friends with Cyrano the anteater, another cranky villager. He looks a lot like a jock villager, to his muscular appearance and body language.

He appears on the album covers for Señor K.K. and K.K. Bazaar. He has the fitness hobby.


Cesar in Animal Crossing

Cesar is an orange and black gorilla, whose black facial hair is in the form of a handlebar mustache. He initially wears the Two-Ball Tee in Animal Crossing, and the A Tee in from Animal Forest to New Horizons.


Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.

Cranky villagers will usually appear in a grouchy or agitated mood and are more difficult to befriend than most other villager types. When talking to the player, cranky villagers tend to become angry if the player disagrees with them or refuses to do a favor. Like all cranky villagers, Cesar will be invested in his hobby and will often challenge the player to various competitions. He will easily get along with jock, snooty and other cranky villagers, and occasionally lazy and normal villagers as well. However, he will find it hard to socialize with peppy villagers, as they will seem overstimulated or immature. Cesar will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


Cesar's house initially has many monotoned items of furniture, such as the Regal Table, two White Pawns, a retro stereo, two house plants and a gyroid. He also has the Persian Wall and Persian Rug. He also has a retro stereo playing K.K. Lament (A gramophone playing K.K. Casbah in Animal Crossing) on the right hand side. There is also a Regal Sofa at the back of the room in the middle of two white pawns.

Profile You'll never catch him doing it, but Cesar spends a good portion of every day waxing his mustache. Rumor has it that he even travels to other towns to dump the telltale empty tins of mustache wax. How odd...

  • As sometimes revealed on April Fool's Day in New Leaf, Cesar is the eldest of five siblings.
  • Cesar's French catchphrase, "brutus", directly references the death of Julius Cesar. He was killed by a group of senators, including his friend, Brutus. In Shakespeare's play, Julius Cesar, Cesar's last words were "Et tu, Brute?", which roughly translate to "you too, Brutus?".
