Just trying things on can be a lot of fun! Yeah, I like to play dress-up sometimes! Wanna fight about it?!

Grizzly Gallery

Grizzly (ムー, ?) is a cranky bear villager in the Animal Crossing series. The name "Grizzly" refers to the species of bear known as the Grizzly Bear. Alternatively grizzly means "gray-haired"; although this doesn't apply to his appearance, it may reference how cranky villagers seem older. His catchphrase, "grrr...", is the sound an upset animal makes, which references his cranky personality. Grizzly was absent from Wild World but reappeared in City Folk. He has the education hobby.


Grizzly in Animal Crossing

Grizzly has yellow eyes with black pupils and brown eyebrows. His main coloring is black/dark brown and white. The insides of his ears are blue. He has a white colored muzzle & a shiny, dark-brown nose. His initial shirt in the original Animal Crossing game is the Houndstooth Tee, while in City Folk and New Leaf he wears a three-ball shirt. In New Horizons, he wears a red Flannel Shirt.


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


Grizzly's house has a mix of exotic and cabin furniture. He uses the cabin wall and the western carpet as his choice for wallpaper and carpet. If he gains a stereo in City Folk and New Leaf, it plays K.K. Dirge. In Animal Crossing, he plays K.K. Safari on a Reel-to-Reel and he has three shirts. In Animal Forest, like Claude, Dora, Nate and Lucy, his house will have an Asian theme. He uses the Planked Tatami and the Common Wall. He has two gyroids, the Tall Dingloid and the Tall Percoloid. He has two fish and two yaoki figures. In New Horizons if he gains a stereo, it plays K.K. Condor.

Profile This bear isn't the tidiest animal you'll ever meet. Grizzly tends to collect a lot of stuff, but he gets rid of it just as fast. When a grouchy bear tells you to take something off his hands, take it.
