Chester is a lazy bear cub villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may come from "chess," referring to his black and white color scheme. This is further supported by his catchphrase, which can be derived from the rook chess piece.

In New Horizons, Chester 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.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Chester from City Folk.

Chester is a bear cub who resembles a panda. He has blue-rimmed eyes, a white face, blue ears, and blush on each cheek. His pupils are dark, black ovals that slant downward. His long mouth droops downward and remains slightly open even when he is not talking. When he performs certain reactions while talking, it reveals his teeth.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Chester has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Chester goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Chester is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
