“I could eat you for breakfast, short stack!”
― Picture quote, Wild World
“I wish I could say hello to children without my face making them cry...”
― Wolfgang, City Folk
Wolfgang (ロボ,Robo?, Lobo) is a crankywolfvillager who has appeared in every game in the Animal Crossing series so far. His name is derived from the same name in the German language. His picture quote in Wild World, "I could eat you for breakfast, short stack," may be a reference to the chef, Wolfgang Puck, famous for his breakfast dishes. lt is also similar to the tiger villager, Rolf's wild world picture-quote. This fact on top of his skill of memorizing things could be a reference to the renowned musician and composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Wolfgang is a navy blue wolf with light yellow tips on his face, muzzle, tail, hands, and feet. He has burnt-orange eyelids with long eyelashes and purple inner-ears. He wears a flight jacket as his initial outfit.
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, Wolfgang 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. Wolfgang will also enjoy spreading rumors about other villagers.
In Animal Crossing, Wolfgang plays K.K. Rock in his home. The amount of modern themed furniture further hints towards his interest in fashion. In Animal Forest e+, the song that plays in his house has changed to K.K. Song, which remains his favorite song in subsequent releases.
In New Horizons, Wolfgang has numerous items from the Ironwood Set, including the ironwood kitchenette, ironwood low table with a toaster, ironwood dresser, ironwood bed, ironwood clock, ironwood chair with a tissue box, and an ironwood cupboard with a protein shaker bottle and a microwave. He also has a double-door refrigerator, an iron wall rack, a pennant, a wood-burning stove, and a portable record player that plays K.K. D&B. He uses the wooden-mosaic wall for wallpaper and a brown wooden-deck rug on top of stripe flooring for his floor.
