Gorillas are a species of monkey villagers in the Animal Crossing series, despite appearing before the monkey became a villager species. In the real world, gorillas are the largest primate and the second-closest DNA match to humans. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, only male gorillas made an appearance. There are twelve gorilla villagers so far, out of which only Jane and Yodel do not appear in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, the former of which may be due to her controversial appearance in Japan, and her western appearance is very similar to that of Violet, another Gorilla villager.
