Rocco (ゴンザレス, Gonzaresu?, Gonzales) is a cranky hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. He is the only hippo to have appeared in every game to date, as well as the only hippo to appear in Wild World. His catchphrase, "hippie," is possibly a pun of his species. He appears on the album cover for Spring Blossoms. He has the education hobby.

Appearance[]

Rocco GC

Rocco in Animal Crossing

Rocco is an olive green hippo with cream-colored hooves. Some of his dominant features include his flaring nostrils, large teeth, and angry-looking eyes. He has deep pink in his ears and in his mouth. He has eyelashes on his lower eyelid. His lower jaw is peach colored. He initially wears a Danger Tee, and carries a Leopard Umbrella when it rains.

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. 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, Rocco 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.

House[]

In his house, he has a turntable playing Lucky K.K.. He has two Ranch Series Chairs and different series items. He owns a billiards table and Pinball Machine. He has an Old Flooring and a Stone Wall.

In New Leaf, he has a construction themed house with some typical construction items like a jackhammer, bulldozer and a danger cone.

Profile Rocco's stern glare makes him sort of unapproachable, but he's actually a nice reliable guy once you get to know him. The problem is, most people are too freaked out by his expression to get past his gruff exterior.
