Marcel (もんじゃ,Monja?) is a lazydogvillager in the Animal Crossing series, who first appeared in City Folk. His name and phrase are French. "Non", (which means "no") is a mild joke on the French's way of speaking. It is stereo-typically used at the end of questions e.g. "This shovel is used for digging up fossils, non?". He may be named after Marcel Marceau, a French actor and mime. His name, along with Cousteau's and Gaston's, is French.
Marcel has olive green fur which looks black at times with a painted white face to look like a mime and/or a clown. He has round eyes with light yellow sclera and a dark pupil in the center of each eye. He has round, dark brown eyebrows, an orange (painted) nose and red (painted on) "whiskers." His hands and feet are also white, making it appear like he painted his face with his hands. His initial shirt is the Chichi print.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
Marcel likes to explore and will usually be seen walking around with a shovel. Marcel will occasionally ask you to find him some fossils. As a lazyvillager, he is easygoing and very friendly towards the player. Marcel gets along with most villagers and has no problem socializing with others.
Marcel's furniture is Asian-themed. If he acquires a stereo, it will play Comrade K.K.. He has two Samurai suits in his house, Chinese-looking wallpaper and flooring, two Lucky Cats, and a Hearth.
Marcel's Japanese name suggests that he's from the real life Kanto Region in Japan. It's a reference to 'Monjayaki', a traditional Japanese pan-fried dish that's popular in the Kanto Region. In addition, his Japanese catchphrase can be translated as "can you say that..." in a Kanto Dialect.
