Chabwick is a lazy penguin villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

In New Horizons, Chabwick has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Chabwick in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

Chabwick is a dark blue penguin with a white face and belly. He has an "X" navel in the middle of his stomach, which is black in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and colorless in New Horizons. He has a large yellow beak. His eyes look tired, which is related to his lazy personality. His feet are yellow. Chabwick wears a pair of red headphones around his head, covering his internal ears.


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

Chabwick has a lazy personality, meaning that he will enjoy food and sleeping with a laid-back lifestyle. As a result, Chabwick will not get along with jock villagers due to their conflicting personalities, as well as snooty villagers because he cares little about his physical appearance and he disagrees on the healthy, balanced meals snooty villagers eat. Despite this, he will get along with the motherly normal villagers, and is easy for the player to befriend due to his laid-back attitude. Cranky villagers will also admire Chabwick's laid-back attitude, making him get along well with them.
