I was being chased by a bee, and I fell into that pit!
― Rizzo, Animal Forest e+

Rizzo (ちょろきち, Chorokichi?) is a cranky mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. Rizzo has appeared in every game except Wild World. His name is likely a reference to Rizzo the Rat, a recurring character in The Muppets franchise. He has the education hobby.


Rizzo in Animal Crossing

Rizzo is a blue mouse with a purple scarf around his face, tied under his nose. His tail is striped with a darker shade of blue. The inside of his ears are pink. His eyes are half closed and his eyebrows raised, giving him a suspicious look. His initial shirt that you will see him wearing when he first gets into the town is a Lavender Robe. In New Horizons he wears a blue and black ninja robe.


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


Rizzo's house has an eastern garden theme to it. It has a tall lamentoid and tall oombloid for gyroids, and yoko dolls occupying the rear and middle sections of his home. In the front section, there are two moss covered rocks and one normal rock. There is no music in his house besides the sounds his gyroids make. If you send him a stereo, it plays K.K. Lament.

Pocket Camp

Rizzo's preferred theme is harmonious. His profile says:

Rizzo will defend his weird style choice of a purple scarf tied around his head to the end. You can call it "weird" to his face if you want. He'll still call it "a bold fashion statement" regardless.
