Rolf is a cranky tiger villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date.

In New Horizons, Rolf has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Rolf from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Rolf is a white tiger with dark gray stripes who appears to be based on the white Bengal tiger. He has dark gray whiskers, pink around eyes, and blue on the insides of his ears.

Personality[edit]

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

Rolf is a cranky villager, and will at first seem rude and belittling to other villagers, as well as the player. As time goes on, however, Rolf will warm up to the player, considering them his "only friend". Also, he will get along with his personality's female counterpart, the big sister villagers, due to their similar personalities, though he may still conflict with them if they have differing opinions. He may find it difficult to get along with other personalities, especially jock and peppy villagers, the latter of whom he complains about in conversation.
