Flash is a cranky bird islander in the Animal Crossing series who appears in 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 O'Hare and Rowan, the other cranky islanders.
