Zipper T. Bunny is a character first introduced in Animal Crossing: City Folk as the host of Bunny Day. He appears as a rabbit, with yellow coloration, purple eyelids and blue overalls with a white star on the front pocket, and displays a cheerful, yet obviously annoyed, expression.

It is strongly implied that Zipper T. Bunny is merely a costume and not an actual rabbit in the Animal Crossing series. This is further supported if the player talks to him from the back, making him turn around and reveal a large zipper on his back. Despite this, he will comment not to look at his Zipper, as it "spoils the magic." Despite Zipper being apparently dressed in a Bunny costume, his mouth still moves when he talks, and his eyes blink and react to emotions the same way as all other characters.

Zipper makes his official debut in Animal Crossing: City Folk. Upon approaching him, Zipper's theme will play and he will begin to dance. The music fades and he stops dancing once players walk away from Town Hall, followed by his sighing. When players talk to him, he will introduce himself and will ask the them to find some bunny Eggs which are buried around town. He will ask the player to open them up to reveal a "surprise," but after the player constantly talks to him without finding one, he will eventually tell the player he is looking for bunny foil, which he also calls prize tickets. He gives players Furniture from the Egg Series each time they find one bunny foil inside an egg and give it to him.

When in town, villagers will usually speak of him in a derogatory manner. Normal villagers appear to be scared of him. It would appear he is unhappy with his choice of uniform and career, by mentioning that he wants a new career under his breath and will occasionally mention how uncomfortable he is under the suit, also under his breath.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

Zipper returns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where his role remains unchanged. However, he now has hidden eggs in various locations besides underground, such as in Trees, in the water, and attached to Balloons. On rare occasions, the player may gain a lucky ticket. In which case, Zipper will give the player his Picture.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo when he appears in his RV, Zipper freely admits he is wearing a bunny suit and does not object to the zipper being seen, though also does not explain why he is wearing the suit despite it not being Bunny Day.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp[edit]

Zipper is featured once again in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp as the host of the Garden Safari event "Zipper's Wonderland". For this event, the player is required to catch creatures known as Scramblers, which only appear after special flowers have been planted. If a player manages to catch one, Zipper will give the player a piece of furniture from the Wonderland Series.
