Del is a cranky alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. Del first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+, and again in Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He has a naval theme to his appearance and home, so his English and Japanese names both refer to famous battleships: Del is likely an abbreviation of "Delaware", the name of multiple ships in the U.S. Navy, while his Japanese name refers to the Japanese battleship Yamato. His Japanese favorite saying is also similar to Sylvana's English favorite saying in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo.



Del is a navy blue alligator with the bottom portion of his jaws and abdomen a rich red. He has black spots resembling gun ports surrounding his cheeks, and half-open eyes, given him a tired or angry look. Because of the navy-and-red design of his head, he visually resembles a Japanese battleship, such as the Yamato he is named after.


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

As a cranky villager, Del will appear mature compared to other male personality types. This will make him come off as rude and belittling when talking 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; not for competition, but for relaxing and peaceful reasons of calm and tranquillity away from other villagers. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will appear rude behind their backs about. He will get along with normal and snooty villagers, as well as other cranky villagers, who he will share deeper conversations with. He will, on occasion, annoy a normal villagers, usually when being mean about something or someone. When he is sick, he insults the illness.
