Ricky is a cranky, squirrel villager from the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in the original Animal Crossing. He was removed from Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, but reappeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name is also the Japanese name of Filbert.


Ricky in Animal Crossing.


Ricky is an orange and yellow squirrel who constantly looks angry, thanks to his eyebrows. Ricky has a big red/pink nose which makes him look kind of cute. He has a weird-looking mouth that looks like a smile, but at the same time makes him look grumpy. This may add to his cranky personality. Ricky has a white and blue stripe starting from his forehead and going down his different-colored, swirly, bushy tail. He has pink inside his stubby ears.


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

Ricky is a cranky villager and will appear grumpy and grouchy towards the player at first, and for quite a while afterwards, and may take a while to lighten up and grow more friendly to the player. Like other cranky villagers, even giving him medicine won't cheer him up and is very self-centered. He will admire lazy villagers due to their laid-back attitude. He will not admire peppy villagers.
