Quillson is a smug duck villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. He is the only smug duck in the series. His name comes from "quill," meaning the lower shaft of a feather, or a pen made from one. His phrase, "ridukulous," is a combination of the words "ridiculous" and "duck."

In New Horizons, Quillson has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Quillson is a green duck with green feathers and a pink/red beak. He has lazy looking eyes and blond hair, with darker blue/gray freckles.


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

Quillson is a smug villager, meaning he will come off as a gentlemen and polite. Smug villagers seem to be a mix between some personalities, and are kind, lively but can come off as conceited. If the player is female, they will occasionally flirt. Smug villagers cannot be a starter villager, and can only move in after the player becomes mayor. They wake up at 8:30 AM.
