“I came barging in on you, but you're all still smiles and pleasantries. You're almost TOO nice. GAHAHA!”
― Static, New Leaf
Static (スパーク,Supāku?, Spark) is a crankysquirrelvillager in the Animal Crossing series. His name, catchphrase, appearance and general character make reference to lightning. Static has appeared in every Animal Crossing game to date. He has the music hobby.
Static is a purple squirrel with a yellow swirl on his tail and a yellow lightning bolt on the top of his head, outlined in lime green. The inside of his ears are a light pink, and the tip of his paws are a lighter shade of purple than the rest of his body. In the games before New Leaf, his mouth did the opposite of what his eyes did. For example, if Static was angry, his eyes would look angry, but his mouth would smile. In Animal Forest, the inside of his ears were blue instead of pink, his yellow swirl was a darker shade of yellow, and his paws were the same color as his ear color in Animal Forest+. He initially wears a Melon Shirt.
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, Static 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. Static will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.
Static house is relatively consistent through all games he's appeared in, with a general theme on the Modern Series and rock music. In all games, he owns multiple guitars, some acoustic, and some electric, as well as at least one gyroid (furniture). In Animal Crossing and Wild World, his house floor seems to match his name.
In Animal Crossing, Static owns only one item from from the Modern Series, being the end table. This table displays the rare item, Tom Nook's picture, on top. He also owns two plants, and many stereos of many types, one of them playing Surfin' K.K. Static's wallpaper in this game is the Plaza Wall, and the flooring is the Steel Flooring.
In Wild World and City Folk, Static's house is extremely similar to his original house, with the biggest change being the addition of more Modern furniture. He has three pieces from this set now, being the bed, the sofa and the desk. He also owns a mountain bike and a Gold Stereo that plays Surfin' K.K., just like the previous game. His wallpaper and flooring is unchanged from Animal Crossing.
In New Leaf, Static's house is slightly tweaked again, the main change being the flooring and wallpaper, which changes to the Hopscotch Floor and the Steel Wall respectively. He also now displays a round mini cactus on top of his Modern Desk. Static still has a Gold Stereo that plays Surfin' K.K., like every other game.
Static's been known to loudly complain about how nothing exciting ever happens to him, but he's ALSO been known to complain when something surprises him. There's just no pleasing some squirrels, you know?
Static has a guitar at home in every piece, but Bella says he can't play the guitar. This information can be found in a letter available by scanning a Bella's e-cards sold in Japan with an "e +"'s post office, as shown here.
