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]

Zucker in New Leaf.

Zucker's appearance is based on a takoyaki ball. He is a creamy yellow-colored octopus with salmon-colored accents on his snout and tentacles. He has brown hair on the top of his head representing takoyaki sauce, and three green freckles on each of his cheeks representing seaweed, which is also a popular takoyaki topping. He also has what appears to be a small wooden stick sticking out of his head, as takoyaki is frequently eaten using toothpicks. His eyes are small, black ovals.

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.

Zucker's not sure whether he likes puddings better when they're nice and firm or still warm and wobbly. It's a nice problem to have though, isn't it? Win-win.
