Chico is a lazy mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in every first-generation Animal Crossing game. His name means "small" in Spanish, referring to the size of his species.



Chico is a brown mouse with a big smiling mouth and small, squinted eyes. He has pink inside his ears and a striped tail. His eyes are fully closed because of his immense smile, but he will occasionally open his eyes when surprised. Chico consistently displays a toothy grin as he speaks, in a similar manner to fellow mouse Samson.


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

Chico is a lazy villager, meaning that he will love food and sleeping. Outside of these habits, Chico is laid-back and easy to get along with, making him easy to befriend. This makes him popular amongst cranky villagers, who admire his lifestyle, as well as the open-minded normal villagers. Despite this, He won't get along with jock villagers, who practice the opposite lifestyle of his own, and he won't get along with snooty villagers, since Chico won't care about his physical appearance.
