Ricky in Animal Crossing

Ricky is a yellow-brown squirrel with pink inside his ears and a big red nose. He has a blue and white stripe on his head, which resembles the stripes of Peanut and Filbert. He also has large, black eyes and a unibrow that curves downward, making him look angry. His eyes somewhat resemble those of a Goomba from the Super Mario series. Ricky initially wears a Three Ball Tee.


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. 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, Ricky 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.


In Animal Crossing, Ricky's home resemble a western tavern. He owns two Green items and two Ranch items, as well as a Cabin Clock and a Classic Table. He also owns a billiards table and a Jukebox that plays K.K. Western. His wallpaper in the Cabin Wall, and his flooring is the Old Board Floor.

When Ricky returned in New Leaf, his house kept it's western theme. He now owns more Cabin furniture, such as the large table, the shelf and the chair. In addition, he also has a fireplace, a desert cactus, a wooden box, and a watering trough. K.K. Western plays on his Cassette Player, and his wallpaper and flooring is the Cabin Wall and the Old Board Floor respectively, just like in the first game.

Ricky's house has seen a drastic change from New Leaf to New Horizons. He now has a woodland theme instead of a western theme with many items from the log set. He also displays four tree standees, a hay bed, a pond stone, an old-fashioned washtub, a lantern, a camp stove, and a portable radio that plays K.K. Safari. He has a shanty rug spread out on top of his Swamp Flooring and has the Woodland Wall wallpaper.

Profile This precocious little squirrel got into trouble all the time as a kid. Ricky's problem is that he loves to chew on everything in sight -even stuff that isn't edible. You'd better stand back when you talk to him!
