Gaston is a cranky rabbit villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name is a given French name and his catchphrase, "mon chou," is a French term of endearment, which translates to "my dear." Gaston's favorite saying in Wild World is "Sacre Bleu!", which is also French.

In New Horizons, Gaston has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Gaston from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Gaston is a mustard-yellow rabbit with blue inner ears, a small orange nose, a large black mustache, brown feet, and white paws. His eyebrows are pointed down, giving him a very serious, profound stare.

Personality[edit]

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

As a cranky villager, Gaston will appear mature compared to other male personality types. This will make him appear rude and belittling when talking to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confine in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but not for competition, but for relaxing and peaceful reasons of calm and tranquility. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will appear rude behind their backs to. 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 villager, usually when being mean about something or someone. When he is sick, he will insult the illness and act delirious, thinking the player is his mother.
