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.
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.
