Twirp is a cranky bird villager in the Animal Crossing series. He appears in every first-generation Animal Crossing game. His name is a portmanteau of tweet and chirp, onomatopoeias for the sound a bird makes, the latter also being his catchphrase. His name is also a homophone with twerp, a slang term for an insignificant or despicable person.



Twirp is a pink bird with blue hair, large eyes, and a yellow beak. He has angry-looking eyebrows, giving him an intense expression.


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

Twirp has a cranky personality. This means he will appear rude or belittling to the player at first, but after a while, he will learn to confide in the player, considering them his 'only friend', although he will still criticize the player. Although he may offend peppy villagers, he can also come across as humorous due to his insulting speech. He admires lazy villagers for their laid-back lifestyle, and will also get along with snooty and other cranky villagers.
