Gaston (Japanese name: モサキチ, Mosakichi) is a Cranky Rabbit Villager who made his very first appearance in Animal Crossing (GCN), followed by Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. This particular neighbour was even lucky enough to make an appearance on the front cover of the GCN installment.
With the assumptions of a much higher maturity as opposed to other villagers bearing separate personalities, Gaston often comes across as gruff and demeaning towards others. This unfortunately doesn't prevent him from talking down your Player at times as well. But, as will all villagers bearing this burdensome personality, he eventually warms up to your Player, as begrudging as it may seem at the best of times. But you can't help but learn to sympathize with this outcome given Gaston often considers you his only friend, hinting at much personal loneliness racking his life due to his rough and misunderstood attitude. Excluding the Jock villagers, Gaston takes to the common hobbies of fishing, bug catching, and paleontology for leisure and apparent relaxation, not sporty competition(to which he considers nothing but trouble). Another personality type he has a problem getting along with is Peppy and Jock, since he tends to betray their trust through talking them down and mishearing their conversations. Gaston is, however, able to find a happy medium through the Snooty and Lazy sides of residents since they tend to keep up more rooted, meaningful conversations as far as he is concerned. This however, his rude and snobbish personality, can annoy Normal villagers.
Gaston has blue ears, a round, orange nose, and a large, comblike mustache. His entire head and arms are a solid yellow. He has large, serious eyes set in a seemingly permanent grouchy expression. His legs are a solid burnt orange, whereas his Swell Shirt matches his body's colour scheme well.
 Name Meaning
Just like Gigi, Gaston's outer persona stems from the classic french stereotypes: the characteristic mustache, his "mon chou" catchphrase and other sayings such as "sacre bleu!", each originating from the French language.
