“Ya got stung by wasps yesterday? Like, a lot. Like...a lot. Like...A LOT, a lot. Like...ouch!”
― Deli, New Horizons
Deli (デリー,Derī?, Delhi) is a lazymonkeyvillager who first appeared in New Leaf. His Japanese name is possibly a reference to the Monkey-man of Delhi and his English one probably to the words 'delicacy' or 'delicatessen'. His New Leaf picture quote could relate to a monkey wrench with the rhyme teaching which way to turn the wrench to loosen or tighten a screw or bolt.
Deli is a creamish-colored monkey with a distinct brown colored face, ears, and paws. He has a short curly tail and round, wide open eyes with black pupils. The insides of his ears are colored purple. His default clothing is the Blue Diamond Tee.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
As a lazy villager, Deli will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Deli will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.
Deli has K.K. Marathon playing on his phonograph along with parts of the Exotic Series, such as the exotic bed, exotic chest, exotic bench, and the exotic screen. He has the tent wall and the ancient tile flooring.
In New Horizons, his house takes on a different appearance. The house has a blue color scheme, and objects like the bookcase, globe, and writing desk indicate he's more of a modern world-traveler.
