Chief (チーフ) is a cranky, wolf villager, appearing in all games from the Animal Crossing series. As a cranky villager, he will appear grouchy and mean towards the player, but will slowly begin to warm up and befriend them. His name may relate to his cranky personality, who see themselves as socially and mentally dominant- much like chiefs. His initial phrase, "harrumph", is a sign of boredom or annoyance, often related to cranky villagers.
Chief is a very sophisticated, deep orange wolf with a white, pointed snout, and perked up ears. Although he is a wolf, his fur color makes him look like a fox. Because of his sophistication, he may look like a perky, possibly even a female villager when first seen. His paws, feet, and muzzle are all creamy white and his ears slightly tipped dark brown at the top and are light pink on the inside. His initial item of clothing, being the Red Bar Shirt, matches his muzzle and the insides of his ears and mouth. His eyes gleam when opened and has ginger brown hair in between his two ears that is slanted in a modular way. On rainy days he carries the Elegant Umbrella that matches his muzzle, ears, and mouth just like the Red Bar Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
As a cranky villager, Chief will have the tendency to be belittling towards those around him. He is no exception to the typical cranky villager type, finding peppy villagers too happy and conflicting against snooty villagers. When talking to other cranky villagers, he will get involved in deep conversations, usually about trivial matters like the weather or other villagers and the way they act. For some reason he enjoys gardening, and will soon be involved in fishing and Bug catching. He may also ask the player to look for an item of clothing for him to wear - giving the excuse that he cannot be caught shopping for clothes because it is "lame". In Wild World, he may challenge the player to fishing competitions. In New Leaf, when the player has a conversation with a villager with the jock personality about what they were like as a baby, Chief will reenact what he was like as a baby.
Initially, Chief has a few clocks in Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: City Folk, including the Robo-Clock, Alarm Clock, Odd Clock, Owl Clock, Glow Clock, Red Clock and Cube Clock. Chief also has the Modern Bed, two Office Lockers from the Office Set, a Coffee Machine, a Toilet, and his Tape Deck plays DJ K.K.. The song's intense rhythm matches the theme of his house and his personality. His wallpaper is the Industrial Wall, which is obtained from Wendell in Animal Crossing, and his flooring is the Steel Flooring.
