Flash is a cranky bird islander in the Animal Crossing series who appears in Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+. His Japanese catchphrase, chiruchiru, is an onomatopoeia for a bird's chirp.



Flash is a dapper-looking blue bird with blocky, closed eyes. He has a pink-red beak and feet while wearing a straw hat. Under his beak is an orange and yellow mark which covers his entire chin, and up to his beak. He also has a swirl of dark blue hair and the tip of his tail and wings are the same color as his chin.


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

Due to being an islander, Flash's cranky personality is different than the normal cranky personality behavior. While cranky villagers are rude, easily angered, and belittling, Flash acts more like the smug personality introduced in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, being gentlemanly and polite, but also arrogant and conceited. This behavior is also shared with Curlos, Frank, O'Hare, Rowan and Weldon, the other cranky islanders.

As an islander in Animal Crossing, Flash has a favorite fruit and one he is allergic to. He is allergic to peaches and loves cherries, meaning giving him the former reduces the likelihood of him dropping Bells, and giving him the latter increases the likelihood of him dropping Bells.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

As an islander, Flash's house in Animal Crossing will begin with only one furniture item, along with the exotic wall and bamboo flooring. He will request specific items for the player to give to him, which he will place in his house. After he places two items in his house, he will upgrade his wallpaper, and after he places five items, he will upgrade his flooring. Harry requests for the same items as Flash, although his house has different wallpaper and flooring.
