Hippeux is a smug hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name is intended to be pronounced like a French name, so out loud, it is pronounced identically to his species name. According to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, his real name is Gary.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Hippeux from New Leaf.

Hippeux has greenish yellow skin, turquoise hooves, a light yellow jaw, and blue eyes. The inside of his ears are pink, and he also has brown hair and eyebrows.

Personality[edit]

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

As a smug villager, Hippeux will appear light-hearted and polite towards the player. Occasionally, he will flirt with the player, regardless of their gender. He can also come off as egotistical and conceited sometimes, but he still is kind towards everyone. He enjoys the usual hobbies like fishing and bug catching, but he also has niche interests such as collecting bottle caps. He gets along with all villager personalities, but big sister villagers might be put off by Hippeux. He will go to sleep at 2:00 AM and wake up at 8:30 AM.

Villager information[edit]
