This article is about a villager given the name of Hazel due to Nintendo of America's localization error. For the already prexisting villager with the same name who only appears in the earlier Animal Crossing games, see Hazel (Animal Crossing).
“When I was a kid, I used to pick fruit and plant stuff all the time...”
― Hazel, talking to the player about her childhood, New Leaf
Hazel (アイリス,Airisu?, Iris) is a sisterlysquirrelvillager who first appeared in New Leaf. Her name comes from hazelnut, a type of nut. A certain villager already had the name of Hazel, but due to Nintendo of America's localization error, this villager was given the name of Hazel. That villager was then renamed to Sally due to yet another localization error on Nintendo of America's part. Not only that, but the new name given, Sally, was already owned by another villager too, who was renamed Cally. Her initial phrase is a reference to her uni-brow, hinting that she is proud of it. She has the play hobby.
Hazel's most distinct feature is her prominent uni-brow, which resembles Lyman's uni-brow. Her fur is a light brown, almost peach color, and she has a red bob haircut. Her eyes are small, with one tiny eyelash poking out of each one. In addition, Hazel has pink cheeks and buck teeth. The innards of her ears are sky blue, while the tips of her paws are red. Hazel initially wears the Red Warmup Suit, and carries the Sunny Parasol on rainy days.

Hazel (New Leaf) is a sisterly villager. When befriended, she will give the player fighting tips and teach them ways to relax. Hazel (New Leaf) will also give the player medicine if they are stung by a bee. Like all sisterly villagers, Hazel (New Leaf) is tough, but she will still care deeply about her appearance. Hazel (New Leaf) has a tendency to stay up very late at night. It is easy to get her picture since developing friendships with sisterly villagers is simple due to her caring and protective nature.
Hazel (New Leaf) will treat the player with respect and will even offer to fight off anyone giving the player trouble. Hazel (New Leaf) may get along with jock villagers who share her love of sports, lazy villagers for how laid-back they are, and peppy villagers. However, she may conflict with snooty and cranky villagers, who spread rumors about others, and she may have trouble getting along with normal villagers.
In New Leaf, Hazel's house is very child-like, featuring almost the entire Patchwork Series, as well as a papa bear. She also owns a cushion, a hamster cage and a CD Player that plays K.K. Disco. Her wallpaper is the Modern Wood Wall, and her flooring is the Birch Flooring.
In New Horizons, Hazel has a sports-themed home, with a basketball hoop, ball, and two tennis tables. She also has a folding chair, champion's pennant, wall clock, and a tape deck that plays DJ K.K.. Her wallpaper is the dojo wall and her flooring is the wooden-knot flooring
