Ha ha! I finally got what I wanted!
― Flip, New Leaf

Flip (さすけ, Sasuke?) is a jock monkey villager that first appeared in New Leaf. His Japanese name and ninja motif is most likely inspired by the ninja, Sarutobi Sasuke; in addition "saru" is Japanese for "monkey". His picture quote references the "three wise monkeys". He has the music hobby.


Flip is a monkey with bright-orange fur and honey-yellow skin. He has pink blush-marks on his cheeks and his inner-ears are lime-green. Flip has pronounced buck-teeth, and he wears a smile. He has curly bangs and a cowlick on the top of his head. He has round eyebrows that match the color of his fur, and his eyes are large and round with black pupils. He wears the Happi Tee in New Leaf and a blue Muscle Tank in New Horizons.


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

Flip has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Flip is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Flip.


In New Leaf, Flip's house has many Japanese-inspired items. From the Zen set, he has the hearth and a tea tansu. In the middle of his house, he has a kotatsu with yellow roses and a CD player next to it that plays K.K. Rally. He also has a taiko drum, extinguisher, eel, and a dharma from the Dharma set. Flip's flooring is Planked Tatami, and his initial wallpaper is the Shoji Screen.

In New Horizons, Flip's home resembles a street during cherry blossom season. In the center of his house, he has a dark-brown stall with red stripes, surrounded by two blossom-viewing lanterns from the Cherry blossoms series. Behind the stall, there's a lecture-hall desk with an espresso maker and dish-drying rack on top of it. In the back of his house, there's also a phone box, drink machine, utility sink, and a portable toilet. In the front of his house, he has a bamboo bench, bamboo stool, and bamboo speaker from the Bamboo series. He plays K.K. Rally on his bamboo speaker. For wallpaper, Flip uses the the Cherry-Blossom-Trees Wall, and for flooring, he uses the Gravel Flooring.
