“Hah ha! I got to sign BEFORE it was cool to sign!”
― Chadder, New Leaf
Chadder (チーズ,Chīzu?, Cheese) is a smugmousevillager in the Animal Crossing series. His Japanese name is a direct loan word of the English word "cheese." His English name references cheddar cheese, and may be a pun on "chatter", meaning to talk rapidly. His catchphrase, "fromage", is the French word for cheese.
Chadder is a dark yellow mouse with three orange spots on his face, six on his ears, and one on each of his legs, similar to the holes in Swiss cheese. He has a mint green nose and reddish-brown paws. His initial shirt is the Tuxedo (changed to the Tailcoat in New Horizons) and when it rains, he holds the Eggy Parasol.
