Zell is a smug deer villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name comes from gazelle.

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Zell from New Leaf.

Even though Zell is a deer, his appearance resembles a species of antelope native to India called a blackbuck from his spiral horns and black fur coloring.

Personality[edit]

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

Zell is a smug villager, meaning he will come off as a gentlemen and polite. Smug villagers are a more "clear" male counterpart to snooty villagers, and are kind and lively, but can come off as conceited. If the player is female, they will occasionally flirt. Smug villagers cannot be a starter villager, and can only move in after the player becomes mayor. They wake up at 8:30 AM.

Villager information[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Zell cannot be one of the starting villagers in the player's town.
