Rizzo is a cranky mouse villager in the Animal Crossing series, appearing in nearly all games except for Animal Crossing: Wild World. His English name is based on Rizzo the Rat from The Muppets.

In New Horizons, Rizzo has the education hobby and can be seen wearing Rimmed Glasses, reading a novel-type book while outside, and using a magnifying glass when near certain objects.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Rizzo from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Rizzo is a blue mouse with a purple handcloth (or "hokkamuri") around his face. His tail is striped with a darker shade of blue. The inside of his ears are pink. His eyes are half closed and his eyebrows raised, giving him a suspicious look. He is based on the stereotypical Japanese pop culture depiction of a thief, where a handcloth is tied around the nose. His species plays on the Japanese folk hero Nezumi Kozō ("Rat Kid"), a well-known thief who is often compared to Robin Hood. The "thief" connection his further supported by his picture quote and Animal Crossing e-Reader card.

Personality[edit]

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

Rizzo is a cranky villager, which means he will appear mature and cynical in conversation. Rizzo, as well as other cranky villagers, will eventually open up to the player, considering them his only friends. He will enjoy the usual hobbies; not for competition, but for relaxing and peaceful reasons of calm and tranquility. He will find it difficult to socialize with peppy villagers, due to their upbeat personality, with which he will appear rude behind their backs to. 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. When he is sick, he will insult the illness.
