Yodel Gallery

So, you just paddled all the way over here, huh? Your arms must be tired... ...That...Sounded so dumb.
― Yodel, Animal Crossing

Yodel (ヨーデル, Yōderu ?) is a lazy gorilla islander. He appeared only in Animal Forest+, Animal Crossing, and Animal Forest e+.


Yodel is a gray gorilla who appears to dress as a warm-clothed hiker, although this is the default male islander shirt, which is also where his name "Yodel" originated from, for yodel is usually what is thought hikers would do up on the mountain peaks to attract mountain goats. He initially wears the blue aloha shirt. He also wears a warm winter hat. This may be mistaken for a forehead.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.

As a lazy villager, Yodel will be friendly and easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he has a love of food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, like when fishing. Yodel will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a lifestyle of exercise and fitness, which conflicts with the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food. He will get along with other lazy villagers with whom he will talk about food, comics, or superheroes. He will also get along well with normal, peppy, smug and sisterly villagers, and occasionally cranky villagers, but may from time to time annoy snooty villagers, who disagree with the lazy lifestyle.

Fruit Allergy

As an islander, Yodel has a favorite fruit and a fruit that he is allergic to. Feeding him the allergy fruit will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. Yodel is allergic to cherries and loves apples.

Profile Yodel may enjoy life on a tropical island, but his one true passion in life is mountain climbing. He was so depressed by all the garbage people left in the mountains that he had to leave. Please, don't litter!
