Chow is a cranky bear villager from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game so far, with the exception of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. Chow's name comes from the spelling variation of the Chinese surname, Zhou - the fact that it is a Chinese (sur)name relates to Chow being a Panda Bear, which are native to China. In the city of Hull, England, "chow" is a colloquialism used for "telling off." As people are usually cranky when telling someone off, this relates to Chow's personality, although this is most likely a coincidence.


CharacteristicsEdit

AppearanceEdit

Chow is a pink panda bear with black arms, eyes, and legs, and also has a mole under his left eye. The insides of his ears are blue. His eyes are unique, with white oval-shaped circles and no pupils. Chow is initially seen wearing a Star Shirt which can be purchased at the Able Sisters' shop. He uses a Ribbon Umbrella when it rains.

PersonalityEdit

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

As a cranky villager, Chow will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than for competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, with whom he will share deeper conversations. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone.
