Hazel is a big sister squirrel villager in the Animal Crossing series. She debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Her name is most likely derived from the color of her fur and from hazelnuts. Her name also originally belonged to Sally.

In New Horizons, Hazel has the play hobby and can run around with her arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.



Artwork of Hazel from New Leaf.

Hazel's features include a large unibrow, and she does not seem to mind it, her catchphrase being "uni-wow!" She also has short, boyish hair that can make her look male at a glance, but she has eyelashes and pink blush. She has black eyes and buckteeth.


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

Hazel is the only squirrel villager to have a big sister personality. This means that she may be a tad snooty, but otherwise acts as a big sister to the player. This also means that she cares for the player; if the player gets stung by bees, she may give the player medicine.
