Rodney is a smug hamster villager in the Animal Crossing series who made his first appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

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



Artwork of Rodney from New Leaf.

Rodney is a teal hamster with an off-white muzzle, freckles, and droopy eyes. He has pink hair on the top of his head and has rounded ears, with an off-white inner-coloration.


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

Rodney has a smug personality, meaning he will appear kind and gentleman-like. He will get along well with other villagers. Occasionally, he will flirt with the player, especially if they are female. He seems to be a mix of other personality types. He gets along well with most villagers, but may have issues with snooty and cranky villagers. Smug villagers cannot be a default resident, and must move in after the player becomes mayor. He goes to sleep at 1:30 AM and wakes up at 8:30 AM.
