I'm pretty forgetful, but I'll record the good times we've shared in the notebook of my heart.
― Filbert, New Leaf

Filbert (リッキー, Rikkī?, Ricky) is a lazy squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name, like most of his species, comes from a type of nut. In this case, his name comes from an edible type of hazelnut. He has made an appearance in every Animal Crossing game to date. He is the only lazy squirrel villager in the series so far. His initial catchphrase could be based on the fact that squirrels usually appear to have buck teeth. He appears on the cover of New Horizons. He has the nature hobby.

Filbert in Animal Crossing

Filbert is a light blue squirrel with a white stripe on his forehead that has a blue outline, and two swirls on his tail (one white, the other blue). He has bright pink cheeks and the inside of his rounded ears are orange. His eyes are wide open with black pupils, and his mouth is smiling. His initial shirt is the Vogue Top in every game before New Leaf. In New Leaf, he wears the Checkered Tee. In New Horizons, he wears the Tree Sweater.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.

As a lazy villager, Filbert 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. Filbert 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.


Filbert's house is very unique. He has a TV with a VCR and two gyroids, the mega and mini Croakoids. He also has two pieces of the Kiddie Series and a train set, adding to his child-like home. Filbert has two cacti in his house as well as the Lunar Horizon wallpaper which, paired with the Satellite adds an outer space feel. He also has the Citrus carpet as his flooring. Filbert lacks a stereo at first but if he receives one, it will play Two Days Ago.

In New Leaf, Filbert's house loses its child like appearance, and gets more of a space theme. He now has more items from the Robo Series, including a Robo Stereo, which plays Two Days Ago. He also has a satellite, an asteroid, and two gyroids.

In New Horizons, Filbert's home plays Stale Cupcakes. He continues decorating his home with a space theme, but in this game his house also has a childish theme, referencing his lazy personality.
