― Del, City Folk


Del (ヤマト, Yamato?) is a cranky alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name could possibly be a reference to crocodiles. His Japanese name, his color scheme, and his metallic/robotic appearance appear to be a reference to the Japanese battleship Yamato. Del is among the few villagers who are not technically animals, along with Coco, Sprocket, Stitches, Ribbot, and others.

He appears on the album cover of Mountain Song and has the fitness hobby.

Appearance

Del in Animal Forest e+

Del is a dark purple-grey alligator, the bottom portion of his jaws and abdomen a rich red. The tip of his tail, and his feet seem to be a separate piece of metal than the rest of his body. He has large, black nostrils, white teeth and half open eyes with small black pupils, giving him a tired or angry look. His eyes become a bright red when performing certain Reactions.There are black rectangles on the sides of his face, possibly representing the 'windows' of a battleship. His head has a marked resemblance to "crocs" a slip on shoe. In Animal Forest e+, Del initially wears a wave shirt in Animal Forest e+, and a blue-stripe tee in later games.

Personality

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.

House

Shown are items from the Pirate Theme, Robot Series, and Mad Scientist Theme.

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. His stereo plays K.K. March.

In City Folk, he 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, it will play 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, no longer owning any pirate items.

In New Horizons the exterior of the home is a navy blue with a red door and a small circular window. The roof is a black with a lighter grey around the edges. The interior of the home has an intricate piping wallpaper and pirate themed flooring. The furniture consists of a sink, generator, a black folding table with two green chairs and a board game, two nitrogen tanks, various building materials and the work bench. On the back wall he has a key holder and a black shelf. Hanging above on the wall are three models of the golden gears DIY.

Trivia

  • In New Horizons, his body has a metallic texture, reflecting light, and occasionally makes mechanical sounds when moving. This is the same as the other mechanical villagers, Ribbot and Sprocket.
    • In previous games, it was not expicitly obvious that he was meant to be mechanical. This led to some fans joking that he resembled a Crocs slip-on shoe.
  • His Japanese quote is similar to Sylvana's quote.
  • He was designed to look like an airplane, which is revealed mostly by his facial holes resembling the windows of one.
