― Del, City Folk
Del (ヤマト, Yamato?) is a cranky alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series, a character only available in Animal Forest e+, City Folk and New Leaf. His name could possibly be a reference to crocodiles. His Japanese name and color scheme appear to be a reference to the Japanese battleship Yamato. He appears on the album cover for Mountain Song.


Del is a dark blue alligator with the bottom portion of his jaws and abdomen a rich red. He also has black spots surrounding his red jawline (his nostrils), and half open eyes, given him a tired or angry look. In Animal Forest e+, Del initially wears a wave shirt, and in City Folk, a blue bar shirt. His appearance and house décor may possibly mean he is a robot, pirate, or pirate robot.


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, Del 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. Del will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


Shown are items from the Pirate Theme, Robot Series, and Mad Scientist Theme. In City Folk, he listens to K.K. March and has some pirate furniture. He has a globe and surprisingly, a robo-dresser. He also has an inner tube and an amazing machine, but lacks any gyroids. If he owns a stereo in City Folk, it will play K.K. March. In Animal Forest e+, Del's house is initially the same as Kabuki's, but only with the planked tami and the rusty shed wallpaper. In Animal Forest e+, his stereo plays K.K. March. In New Leaf, Del retains the same wallpaper and flooring but has more of a futuristic theme, with several items of the Robot Theme and no longer owning any pirate items.
