Wade is a lazy, penguin villager from the Animal Crossing series. He made his debut in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and would remain absent from the Animal Crossing series after his initial appearance for over a decade, until he made a reappearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo.
Wade's name may be derived from "wading" in water, a behavior of penguins when hunting for fish. His Japanese name roughly means "boiled fish paste", which relates to either his personality (lazy villagers are fond of food) or his species (penguins hunt and eat fish).
Wade is a white and black penguin. The top of his head is white, as are his belly and the tops of his arms. He has black eyebrows.
Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.
Wade has a lazy personality, meaning he likes talking about food and sleeping. Wade will get along with other lazy villagers due to their similar personalities, but won't get along with snooty villagers since he doesn't care about his physical appearance. Wade also won't get along with jock villagers because he hates exercising and work, unlike jocks.
In New Leaf
Wade's house in Doubutsu no Mori e+ has the same layout as Joey's, with four Sprinklers, a Backyard Pool, and a Red Boom Box. His wallpaper and carpeting are different, however, as he has a Lunar Horizon and a Backyard Lawn, as opposed to Joey's Blue Tarp and Daisy Meadow. He plays Forest Life on his stereo.
Wade's house in Animal Crossing: New Leaf has completely changed to a Japanese style. He now listens to K.K. Jongara instead of Forest Life if he has a stereo inside his house. This could reference his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, as Doubutsu no Mori e+ was a Japan-exclusive game.
