Chestnut is an unused squirrel special villager who exists in the data of Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+. Her name was found by viewing data from Doubutsu no Mori+. The character was previously nicknamed "Blazel" by the community, as its visual appearance combines design elements of Bliss (Caroline) and Hazel (Sally).

Chestnut exists as two different characters under Character Indexes E15A and D06C. When using the D06C version, her only actual line of dialogue is one of Kapp'n's lines. When using E15A, her name will erroneously be displayed as Jambette, and she will begin to speak random villager dialogue. This is due to Jambette's Character Index being E05A (the data wraps around after E0FF.) Chestnut can be accessed only through hacking, such as using a Action Replay code to make her spawn in game.

The feature that used Chestnut was either removed or never implemented. Immediately after her name, とりゃ〜 (Torya〜) is found. This doesn't have a direct translation, but based on the wave dash, it is speculated that it could have been something she said. Her name and text are the last two entries in the file, so she may have been cut due to time constraints. One theory as to her use is as a garden store owner, similar to Leif in New Leaf. Her store may have sold the Sickle. Further evidence for this theory comes from the game files, which include stub methods for wilting flowers and flower growth.

Appearance[edit]

Chestnut's appearance combines features of Bliss and Hazel's designs. She has red colored fur and large blue eyes just like Bliss, and has a creamy white pinstripe on her tail just like Hazel. In addition, she has another creamy white swirl on her head that resembles a question mark, unlike Bliss' flowery swirl. She wears a green apron over a white shirt, which also supports the idea that she was meant to be a garden store owner.
