Chow is a cranky bear villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in every game to date with the exception of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

In New Horizons, Chow has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Chow from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Chow is a pink panda bear with black arms, eyes, and legs, and also has a mole under his left eye. The insides of his ears are blue. His eyes are unique, with white oval-shaped circles and no pupils. He uses a Ribbon Umbrella when it rains.

Personality[edit]

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

As a cranky villager, Chow will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than for competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, with whom he will share deeper conversations. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villager, usually when being mean about something or someone.

Chow loves nothing better than to find stuff in the dump, sell it to Tom Nook, and then spend the cash on something for himself. As far as Chow's concerned, it's the ultimate way to make a living.
