Anchovy (Japanese name: アンチョビ) is a Lazy, Bird Villager who made his earliest appearances in Animal Forest e+[JPN]/Animal Crossing (GCN)[NA], followed by later appearances in both Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.
Anchovy is a laid-back fellow with something of an unstoppable appetite and an almost unaturally calm demeanor. Out of all the common hobbies residents take part in, he prefers Fishing above all else given it provides him both with a tasty meal and a calming atmosphere to boot. In an almost atypical act regarding the Lazy personality, Anchovy takes great pride in his apparel, sometimes even going as far as referring himself as "Fashion Lad"! Unfortunately, Snooty neighbours don't appreciate his open and uncouth way of living in the least, often either ignoring him completely or spreading a distasteful rumour about him.
Anchovy is a dark-brown bird with a black, coconut-shaped crock of hair parted neatly down the middle. He has thick, black eyebrows which take on a rather comical appearance set under his small eyes. He has a well-sized orange beak and with white feathers covering the entire portion of his face below it.
 Name Meaning
His name could be a reference to the fish, because some species of birds eat fish and as being a lazy villager, he enjoys eating.
