Marcel is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series, who first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk. His English name and catchphrase are French, which come from his mime-like appearance. "Non" (which means "no") is a mild joke on the French way of speaking, since it is stereotypically used at the end of questions (e.g. "This shovel is used for digging up fossils, non?"). He is probably named after Marcel Marceau, a known French mime and actor. Despite this, his clothing, house, and Japanese name are traditionally Japanese themed; his face may be intended to resemble a Japanese festival mask.

Marcel has dark green fur with a painted white face, which resembles a mime's makeup or a festival mask. He has an orange nose with red whiskers.


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

Marcel is a lazy villager, meaning he enjoys sleeping, eating, and leading a laid-back lifestyle. Despite this, Marcel also enjoys the usual hobbies and will get along with the player well. Additionally, he will get along with normal, peppy, and cranky villagers, the latter of which admire the laid-back life, but will also offend jock villagers, due to conflicting lifestyles; and snooty villagers, due to him not caring about himself appearance-wise.
