** There's also Filbert, a male Lazy blue squirrel, who not only looks rather effeminate, but also wears a white and pink floral dress as his default shirt in every game he appears in, up until New Lead (where it was changed to a black and white checkerboard patterned shirt).

* NiceGuy: He always calls the mayor "Chum" in ''New Leaf'', offers only 500 Bells to change the way the villager's shoes look in ''City Folk'', and (again in New Leaf) he reacts mostly to the mayor giving negative emotions.

* AscendedExtra: Was just a means to get to the special island in the first game, but replaced Rover for some reason in Wild World.
* ContinuityNod: If you talk to him in the cafe in ''New Leaf'' he might say he drove a bus (City Folk), taxi (Wild World), and rowed a boat for a while.

* MistakenNationality: well, they don't really have nationalities, but the bear Klaus was mistaken to be German, Swiss, Prussian, or Austrian inspired by the translators, while having a face similar to Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar, this is shown even futher in that he wants an ancient Roman bath house as his house in Happy Home Designer. Whoops?

* PunnyName: "Pascal" shares many of the same sounds as "scallop".



* PunnyName: ''Gull''iver, as in the seabird.



* MeaningfulName: "La belle" roughly translates to "the beauty" or "the beautiful one". Though you probably knew that already. [[spoiler:Also an InvokedTrope, as she changed her name as a part of her job. It was suggested by Gracie to give her more pizzazz, if she was to follow in Gracie's footsteps as a famous designer]]

** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Phyllis isn't immune to happiness or [[DeadpanSnarker a moment without snarking]]. It is likely she gets her attitude from having to stay up so late and work the night shift. This is confirmed in New Leaf, where she outright admits in The Roost that she's grumpy from always being swamped with work, and adding that Tortimer was the main reason for this. She states if you became mayor much earlier, things would have been different.

** [[DefiedTrope Defied]] in New Leaf, as whenever he starts to go off on a tangent, he stops himself.

* AchievementSystem: In New Leaf, Badges are handed out by Phineas the sea lion, who will visit your town whenever you qualify for a badge. They're awarded for things like completing a certain percentage of your bug/fish/diving encyclopedia, saving a lot of bells in your bank account, doing a lot of villager side-quests, or just playing the game for long enough, and each category has Badges available in bronze, silver, and gold versions.

* ButThouMust: In Wild World, even if you say "no" to his insurance pitch he'll keep trying to sell it to you. The only way to avoid it is either not talk to him, or talk to him when you don't have enough bells.

* LostForever: Since [=GameSpy=]'s demise led to the shut down of Wii's online multiplayer, Katie and Kaitlin can no longer appear in ''City Folk'', at least for those unwilling to mod their Wii to work off of custom servers and networks. While Katie still appears in ''New Leaf'' and ''Happy Home Designer'', the former being a game that does have online multiplayer working, the latter where she exists as a Amiibo card that can be used on the game. So while yes Katie is gone on Wild World & City Folk, Kaitlin is [[PutOnABus peremently gone unless Nintendo decides to make a Amiibo card of her for HHD.]]

A white cat who has a habit of accidentally ''washing her face off''. She can either be encountered on the train or walking around town, depending on the game. In New Leaf, she is the event character for AprilFoolsDay and will pretend to be other villagers.

One of the new personalities in New Leaf, villagers with this personality act gentlemanly and are easy to get along with, but as their name suggests, can get quite insufferable at times.

One of the new personalities in New Leaf, villagers with this personality are big sister types. They are a bunch of tough cookies, but they are very outgoing and friendly. They're very protective of their friends.

* FingerlessHands: Despite the ability to pick up and store whatever you can in the game, the player characters have no visbile fingers. ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' does give them thumbs, making them into mitten-like hands.

** Interestingly with aparently the Mayor in both ''Smash Bros 4'' and ''Mario Kart 8'' does it make sense that they're too busy to do their duty.

* VideogameCrueltyPotential: In contrast to how in the first game he could be seen walking around near the player's house around the time he delivers mail, the only way to speak to him in the second game is to wait for the right time and ''shoot him out of the air''. However, in the next games he's back to walking around during his delivery run ''for that very reason''. In New Leaf he Lampshades this by saying this is the reason he now only walks while delivering.

* LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics: PlayedForLaughs in New Leaf in one of the possible ways a Lazy villager may propose a Public Works Project. Their opening statement in this case is that studies show that the desired project could up their town's "coolness factor" by an absurdly large percentage. And then they [[LampshadeHanging admit they just made the number up]].

* {{Adorkable}}: They've been given this trait in New Leaf along with CloudCuckoolander. The fact that they squee when you give them a good present is also enough to be in this trope.
