“If pals were restaurants, you'd rank 5 stars in my book. Shame you're not a restaurant.”
― Fang, City Folk
Fang (シベリア,Shiberia?, Siberia) is a crankywolfvillager in the Animal Crossing series. Fang has made an appearance in all Animal Crossing games except Wild World. "Fang" is a common dog name, and may be inspired by the Jack London novel White Fang. His name could also come from sharp teeth. His Japanese name references the Russian province of Siberia. He has the education hobby.
His picture quote may be a play on the saying, 'You mess with the bull, you get the horns’, as well as a play on his name being Fang.
Fang is a light grey wolf with a white muzzle, belly, and white-tipped tail and paws. His nose is black and shiny, and the insides of his ears are dark magenta with a white outline. He has yellow sclera and purple eyelids, and his pupils are gazing off to the side. In New Horizons, he has subtle indigo-colored irises.
His appearance has changed little from the original game, where his eyes were looking in the opposite direction. In previous installments, Fang used to wear an Icy Shirt and carried around a Black Umbrella on rainy days. However, in New Horizons, Fang exchanged his Icy Shirt for a blue Snowy Sweater.
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, Fang 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. Fang will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.
In City Folk, Fang's house retains the loosely modern/Asian theme from Animal Crossing in his house. He incorporates mostly exotic furniture such an exotic bed and an exotic chest along with glass-top table, a few gyroids, and two plants from the House Plant Set being the Weeping Fig and the Dacena. He also has the Shoji Screen wallpaper and Red Tile floor as his choice of flooring and wallpaper. K.K. Calypso plays on his Hi-Fi Stereo.
Fang likes the winter most, because he can blend in with the snow and sneak up on people. And if he doesn't feel like talking, he can curl up in the snow and practically disappear. There's "snow"-body quite like Fang.
