Marcel is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: City Folk and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His catchphrase, "non," means "no" in French, and combined with his name and appearance, may reference the famous French mime, Marcel Marceau.

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



Artwork of Marcel from City Folk.

Marcel is a dark green dog with a painted white face, which resembles a mime's makeup or a Japanese festival mask. His Japanese-themed clothing and home suggest the latter more than the former. He has rounded yellow eyes with large pupils, and an orange nose with red whiskers.


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

As a lazy villager, Marcel has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Marcel goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.
