Rizzo is a blue mouse with what appears to be a purple scarf around his face. 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.
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 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 of 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.
Rizzo lives in an imaginary world where he is a superhero and the world is in distress. And while he looks mighty suspicious in that mask, Officer Copper is used to his crazy costume and his unusual tactics
His name and species are shared with Rizzo the Rat from The Muppets.
Rizzo's scarf gives him a passing resemblance to Ebisumaru from Konami's Goemon series--in turn, Ebisumaru is based off of Nezumi Kozō, a legendary Japanese thief whose name partially translates into "mouse".
