Zell (ネルソン,Neruson?, Nelson) is a smugdeervillager who first appears in New Leaf. His initial catchphrase, "pronk", is a reference to the way deer may move by using all four legs simultaneously to jump up and down, and his name may derive from the word "gazelle," a type of antelope that looks similar to deer. Zell has the same birthday as the special characters, Timmy and Tommy. He has the music hobby.
Zell, despite being a deer, has the appearance of a blackbuck antelope, including their spiraling horns. His fur is dark brown with white markings on his eyes, mouth, and right ear. He also has white hooves. His initial clothing is the Arctic-Camo Tee.

In New Leaf, Zell has some of his furniture form the Gorgeous Series, along with a ebony piano, a billiard table, pothos, 2 stools, a vintage telephone, Dracaena, a Phonograph, and a sconce. The wallpaper he has is the Cityscape wall and he also has the Modern tile. All of this gives his house a classier look.
In New Horizons, Zell keeps the classy look along with some of the furniture. His Cityscape Wall is the same and so is his billiard table. He also still has a phonograph. Now his house contains more furniture from the Rattan series.
