Frett is a cranky dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. After his debut in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he would remain absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 2.0. According to his e-Reader card profile and his house request in Happy Home Paradise, Frett likes watching sports. The e-Reader card specifically mentions soccer, while a ball is a required item in Happy Home Paradise, with a default customization of "Soccer ball."

In New Horizons, Frett has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.



Frett is a yellow dog. He has a brown nose and thick black eyebrows, and the tips of his yellow ears are black. His paws are white with black tips, and his stomach and muzzle are white. His tail is black and tipped white. He resembles a Golden Retriever or a Labrador, similar to Benjamin, Daisy, and Goldie. Whenever he is surprised, his eyes become small black dots.


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

Frett is a cranky villager, meaning he is older and more mature compared to other villagers. He will usually get along with snooty and other cranky villagers. He may have trouble getting along with smug and peppy villagers.

    Gender: Male
    Clothes: グレータータンのふく gray tartan clothes

    Favorite phrase: ったく ttaku ("good grief")
    Profile: サッカー中継は欠かさず観ると言うシャンペン。ひいきのチームが勝っても負けても大騒ぎ。応援というよりも自分がただ騒ぎたいだけって感じです。 Champagne says he never misses a live soccer game. Whether his favorite team wins or loses, he makes a big racket. He doesn't want to cheer for his team, just to make a lot of noise.
    Favorite saying: 盛りひと時 The prime of one's life (also an exciting moment, e.g. in a sports game)
