is the name given to the playable character in the Animal Crossing video game series. Living alongside anthropomorphic animals, the Villager tries to pay off his debt to Tom Nook while still living a healthy and comfortable life. Unlike in Super Smash Bros. 4, the Villager's appearance, which was previously based upon Animal Crossing: City Folk, has been changed to be based on the original Animal Crossing title; as he now wears a horned hat atop his head. The Villager does not speak in the game, and hence has no voice actor to portray him. Like other avatar characters, the Villager's gender can be switched to be male or female.
