Chadder Gallery

Hah ha! I got to sign BEFORE it was cool to sign!
― Chadder, New Leaf
Chadder (チーズ, Chīzu?) is a smug mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. His Japanese name is a direct loan word of the English word "cheese." His North American name references the type of cheese, cheddar, which mice enjoy eating in popular culture. His catchphrase "fromage" is the French word for cheese. He has the fitness hobby.


Chadder is a dark yellow mouse and has three orange spots on his face and six spots on his ears, similar to cheddar cheese. He has green on his nose and brown tips on his paws. His initial shirt is the Tuxedo, and when it rains, he holds the Eggy Parasol.


Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.
Smug villagers are very polite, kind, and gentleman-like. As a smug villager, Chadder will get along easily with other villagers. Smug villagers get along well with most villagers, their personality appearing to be a mix of the other personality types. As a smug villager he will stroke his ego from time to time, going on about how cool he is.

Generally, Chadder will get along with lazy, normal, snooty and peppy villagers, and may conflict with cranky villagers.


Chadder's house has a slightly futuristic theme to it and has a number of items from the Astro Series, such as the clock and the couch. To go along with his futuristic theme and other items in his house, he has a whirlpool bath, shower stall, laptop, air conditioner, and a Plinkoid. His wallpaper is the Cityscape Wall, and the Carpet is the Astro Floor. On his Astro CD Player, he has K.K. Soul playing.
