Rocco is a cranky hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series, who has appeared in every game so far. Rocco's name is likely a reference to "rocky", an adjective used to describe an obstinate or stubborn individual, in reference to his cranky personality. His English catchphrase is derived from his species, the hippo.

Characteristics[edit]

Rocco in 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 in 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.
