Zucker is a lazy octopus villager in the Animal Crossing series who first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His English name comes from sucker, like those found on an octopus's tentacles, while his Japanese name and overall appearance refer to takoyaki, a popular Japanese food made with octopus. Zucker shares his catchphrase with Bertha, a normal hippo villager. His Japanese catchphrase is the Kansai dialect (which is spoken in Osaka, a prefecture known for takoyaki)'s equivalent to "そうです", Bertha's Japanese catchphrase.

In New Horizons, Zucker has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Zucker from New Leaf.

Zucker represents the Japanese snack takoyaki, with a bamboo toothpick stuck in his head. His head resembles a takoyaki ball with his green freckles resembling seasonings put on takoyaki, and his "hair" representing a sauce that is usually served with takoyaki. His body is a similar shade of red as Octavian's. He initially wears the Flan Tank (Happi Tee in New Horizons). Zucker, Ketchup, Frita, Carrot, Tangy, Chadder, and Merengue are all villagers that resemble food.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Zucker has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Zucker goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

House[edit]

In both of Zucker's game appearances, his house resembles a food vendor. In New Leaf, Zucker's house resembles a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, a form of sushi restaurant commonly found in Japan. His house includes two Conveyor-Belt Sushi and various kitchen appliances. In New Horizons, Zucker's house takes on the appearance of a more general food vendor, including a Stall, Steamer-Basket Set, Cotton-Candy Stall, and a couple fruit-themed Cardboard Boxes.
