Hans is a smug, gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series that debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He strikingly resembles a yeti, which is made more apparent by his phrase and name. His initial phrase "groovy" is possibly a pun relating to being cool. The name Hans is a popular masculine name in Scandinavian countries, places characterized by cold temperatures and mountains. Sunairu likely derives from スノー sunō (snow) and ゴリラ gorira (gorilla). His favorite saying is similar to that of Rosie, except "purr" is replaced by "turn."



Hans is a gorilla with white fur and light blue skin. He has a bright orange nose, bangs on his forehead, and droopy, outlined eyes, making him resemble a yeti. He initially wears the Blue Argyle Tee.


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

As a smug villager, Hans will be kind and gentlemanly towards the player. On occasion, he will also flirt with the player, regardless of their gender. He might also come off as conceited. He will get along with all villager personalities, but he is most often seen getting along with normal, peppy and lazy villagers. Additionally, uchi villagers might not get along with Hans, due to his flirty nature. He will go to sleep at 2:00 a.m. and wakes up at 8:30 a.m.
