Rocco is a cranky hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in all games to date.

In New Horizons, Rocco 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 Rocco from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Rocco is a turquoise hippo with peach-colored hooves. Some of his dominant features include his flaring nostrils, large fangs, and angry-looking eyes. He has deep pink in his ears and his mouth. He has eyelashes hanging from his eyes. His lower jaw is peach-colored.

Personality[edit]

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

Rocco is a cranky villager. He resents most lazy villagers because he does not understand their lifestyles, confirmed by the lazy and normal villagers. He also bickers with most jock villagers, but the normal villagers confirm that this is because he is good friends with them. As with all cranky villagers, he will stay inside for much of the day and come outside mostly at night to watch over the town.

Phrase: hippie
Profile: Rocco's stern glare makes him sort of unapproachable, but he's actually a nice, reliable guy once you get to know him. The problem is, most people are too freaked out by his expression to get past his gruff exterior.
