Limberg is a cranky mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name is a shortening of Limburger cheese, a type of cheese with a strong odor, which may reflect his rough and unshaven appearance. His Japanese name comes from rakkyō, Chinese onion, similarly referencing a strong smell. His catchphrase, squinky, is a combination of the noise a mouse makes, squeak, and the word stinky.

In New Horizons, Limberg 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 Limberg from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Limberg is an orange mouse with pink cheeks and a gray five-o'clock shadow. The inside of his ears is blue. He has a black, diamond-shaped nose and an orange tail with darker orange stripes on it.

Personality[edit]

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

As a cranky villager, Limberg will appear mature compared to other personality types. This will make him appear belittling and insensitive to other villagers, including the player. Despite this, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his only friend. He will enjoy the usual hobbies, but for relaxation and peace rather than for competition. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, who he will criticize when talking to other villagers. 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.
