Marcel Gallery

Marcel (もんじゃ, Monja?) is a lazy dog villager 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.

He has the play hobby.

Appearance[]

Marcel CF

Marcel in City Folk

Marcel has olive green fur. His painted white face is often misinterpreted to be mime makeup (especially considering his name and catchphrase), but it's most likely either a kabuki otafuku mask modified to look like a dog or shironuri (white foundation) makeup. He has round eyes with light yellow scleroses and a dark pupil in the center of each eye. He has a shiny orange nose. His round, black hikimayu style eyebrows and red whiskers are very likely painted on. His hands and feet are white like his face, but it's unclear if they're also painted or if it's his natural coloring. His initial shirt used to be the Chichi print, but in New Horizons it got changed to a dark blue Sea Hanten Shirt.

Personality

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

As a lazy villager, Marcel will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Marcel will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug, and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.

House[]

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 preferred theme is harmonious, and he primarily gives steel as a reward. His profile reads:
