― Zell, New Leaf
Zell (ネルソン, Neruson?, Nelson) is a smug deer villager 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, despite being a deer, has the appearance of a blackbuck, a species of antelope. He is colored black with white around his eyes, mouth, and right ear. His arms are black with white on the hooves. His initial clothing is the Arctic-Camo Tee.


Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.
Smug villagers are very polite, kind, and gentleman-like. As a smug villager, Zell will get along easily with other villagers. Smug villagers get along well with most villagers, their personality appearing to be a mix of the other personality types. As a smug villager he will stroke his ego from time to time, going on about how cool he is.

Generally, Zell will get along with lazy, normal, snooty and peppy villagers, and may conflict with cranky villagers.


On his stereo, Zell has K.K. D & B. His house displays two items of the Gorgeous Series.
