Tex is a smug penguin villager who debuted in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His catchphrase, "picante," is Spanish for "spicy,"[1] which contrasts with cold, something which penguins are associated with.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Tex from New Leaf.

Appearance[edit]

Tex is a white and navy blue penguin. His beak is multiple shades of gray, and he has black feet with dark gray areas. His eyes are half open, and have dull red circles around them. Tex appears to be based on an African Penguin.

Personality[edit]

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

Tex has a smug personality. This means he will appear kind and gentlemanly when in conversation with the player. On numerous occasions, he will flirt with the player and admire them. Tex will occasionally talk about being into niche hobbies, like being a train fanatic or collecting plastic bottle caps. He will be very interested in fashion and will mention it often in conversations and letters.
