Chief (チーフ) is a cranky, wolf villager, appearing in all games from the Animal Crossing Series. As a cranky villager, he will appear grouchy and mean towards the Player, but will slowly begin to warm up and befriend them. His name may relate to his cranky personality, who see themselves as socially and mentally dominant- much like chiefs. His initial phrase, "harrumph", is a sign of boredom or annoyance, often related to cranky villagers.
Chief is a very sophisticated, deep orange wolf with a white, pointed snout, and perked up ears. Although he is a wolf, his fur color makes him look like a fox. Because of his sophistication, he may look like a perky, possibly even a peppy villager when first seen. His paws, feet, and muzzle are all creamy white and his ears slightly tipped dark brown at the top and are light pink on the inside. His initial item of clothing, being the Red Bar Shirt, matches his muzzle and the insides of his ears and mouth. His eyes gleam when opened and has ginger brown hair in between his two ears that is slanted in a modular way. On rainy days he carries the Elegant Umbrella. It is strange that he carries this, but it does match his muzzle, ears, and mouth just like the Red Bar Shirt.
Below is a brief description of the cranky personality. For more information, click here.
As a cranky villager, Chief will have the tendency to be belittling towards those around him. He is no exception to the typical cranky villager type, finding peppy villagers too happy and conflicting against sweet villagers. When talking to other cranky villagers, he will get involved in deep conversations, usually about trivial matters like the weather or other villagers and the way they act. For some reason he enjoys gardening, and will soon be involved in fishing and Bug catching. He may also ask the player to look for an item of clothing for him to wear - giving the excuse that he cannot be caught shopping for clothes because he says it's "lame". In Wild World, he may challenge the player to fishing competitions.
Initially, Chief has a few beds in his house; in some games he has a bunch of clocks instead, like in Wild World. He favors robo and construction themed items and furniture, as he does say that he has a frightening taste. He has the Metal Floor and Industry Wall and listens to DJ K.K. on his stereo. The song's intense rhythm matches the theme of his house and his personality. In the GameCube version, he has a modern bed.
