Anchovy (アンチョビ, 'Anchobi'?) is a lazy bird villager that appears in the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase, "chuurp" is the noise birds make, which is "chirping." It could also be a pun on "burp," as he is known to like eating. It is similar to Jacob's. His name, Anchovy, derives from the fact that anchovies make up the diet of some species of birds. He has appeared in every game so far, except Pocket Camp. He has the play hobby.
