Marlo (ドンチャン donchan?) is a cranky hamster villager in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 update. He was revealed in the October 15, 2021 ACNH Nintendo Direct.

Marlo's name and color scheme may be a reference to Hollywood actor Marlon Brando, who played Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather. Keeping with the mafia theme, his Japanese name, "Donchan", may come from "don" (as in, a mafia don) and the honorific "chan" (used as a term of endearment).

His catchphrase, "gabeesh" is Southern Italian slang for "capiche", meaning "do you understand?".

Marlo has the education hobby.

Appearance

Marlo is a black and white hamster. He has short whiskers on either side of his mouth and short, expressive eyebrows, giving him a smug look. The insides of his ears are a yellow-gray olive color. The tips of his paws is black, and his pupils are black. He wears small, black, circular sunglasses. Marlo wears a black Doublet.

Personality

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