Hopper is a Cranky Penguin Villager who has made an appearance in every installment of the Animal Crossing series so far: Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: City Folk. He has even made an amusing cameo in the 2006 anime film: Animal Crossing: The Movie.


[edit] Personality

When set against all other personalities, Hopper's Cranky preset will always stand among the rest regarding maturity(or as much as it may seem). As such, he carries the burden that remains mutual with the Snooty villagers, appearing commonly mean in conversation by putting down others and generally bringing a sour attitude to the table more often than not. And as would be expected, he doesn't appear to mix well with your Player after the first batch of meetings you'll have, but Hopper eventually warms up to you given you treat him right, never ignore him or skip out on any possible request. His personality giving him a rigid flare, he strictly prefers the hobbies of fishing, bug-catching, and fossil-hunting for pure relaxation, stemming from something of a zen regard. The youthful energy of Peppy villagers disturbs him and he often shuns them from his weak social circle, considering he prefers the bliss of being alone. The level-headed state of Lazy villagers tend to put Hopper at ease should one of the previously-mentioned encounters occur. But his naturally judgmental and unforgiving attitude can even upset the most mellowed-out Normal resident.

[edit] Appearance

Hopper is mostly black with big, yellow eyebrows and large, almost unsettling red eyes. He has a medium-sized, orange beak, white stomach, and small, yellow webbed feet. His large yellow eyebrows properly match the character that comes with this resident's Cranky personality.

[edit] Name Meaning

The fact that penguins appear to literally skip, or "hop", across the water as they swim at the rapid speeds that they do in real life, could be where Hopper received his generally confusing species-conflicted name(which could generally be seen as a pun-based frog resident's name).
