Chadder is a smug mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series, making his initial appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name is a distortion of cheddar, a kind of cheese. His initial phrase, "fromage", means "cheese" in French.



Chadder is a yellow mouse with orange spots found all over his body, similar to cheddar cheese. He has long, thin eyes and a green nose.


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

Chadder has the smug personality, making him appear flirtatious towards the player. He will state that he enjoys dancing, collecting bottle caps and watching trains go by. He will be considered a mix of all the male personalities. He will have the love of sports of jock villagers, the laid-back personality of the lazy villagers and the mature traits of the cranky villagers. It will be easy for him to get along with snooty, peppy, normal, lazy and other smug villagers.

According to Chadder, his parents meant to name him after their favorite cheese but got the vowels mixed up. He probably made that up to be funny, though.
