Chester is a lazy, cub villager in the Animal Crossing series, though he resembles a panda. Chester was introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in every main installment since then, with Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp being the only game in which he hasn't appeared thus far.

Chester is a panda with basic black-rimmed eyes, a white face and make-up on each cheek. He has blue ears. He has a constantly unhappy expression, and grits his teeth when talking.


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

Chester is a lazy villager. As such, Chester takes a keen interest in eating, sleeping, clothes, etc. He gets along very well with the player, as well as other lazy, normal or peppy villagers. Cranky villagers admire his laid-back lifestyle, but may get angered by him.
