Sacre bleu!
― Picture quote, Wild World

Gaston (モサキチ, Mosakichi?) is a cranky rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name, Gaston, is a male French name. His initial phrase, "mon chou," is a play on words with "chou chou," a term of endearment. "Mon chou" is also a French term that some people might use on loved ones, such as "honey" or "sweetheart". Gaston's picture inscription in Wild World reads as "Sacre Bleu!," (Sacre Bleu translates to "confound!") further establishing his character as a Frenchman. In New Leaf, his picture quote, "An ear for an ear leaves everyone deaf", resembles a quote from Mohandas Karamchand "Mahatma" Gandhi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." He, along with Marcel and Cousteau, have French-inspired names and appearances.

He is featured on the covers of K.K Chorinho and K.K. Folk and he has the education hobby.

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, Gaston 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. Gaston will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.


In Animal Forest and Animal Forest+, Gaston's house has a kitchen and laboratory theme, with various items such as a Classic Clock and a Modern Table with a fossil and a fish. K.K. Dirge is playing on a Reel-to-Reel. The wallpaper is the manor wall and the flooring is the wooden panel.

In New Leaf, Gaston's house seems run-down and rickety. From the Cardboard set, he has the cardboard sofa and a cardboard table with a kettle. In the back of his house, he has a wide-screen TV, sink, and a sloppy bed from the Sloppy series. On the right side of his house, he has a massage chair, sloppy lamp, and a reel-to-reel that plays K.K. Song. He also has a vacuum cleaner and a garbage can. For wallpaper, he uses the Ramshackle Wall, and for flooring, he uses the Ramshackle Floor.

In New Horizons, Gaston has a simple house, similar to his New Leaf house. He has a cardboard table and cardboard bed from the Cardboard set, as well as a clothesline and old-fashioned washtub near the front of his house.

Profile Gaston tends to get a lot of odd look from his neighbors because a) he always looks sort of angry and b) he has a suspicious mustache. Maybe if he shaved that thing off he wouldn't look so mad...
