Hopper is a cranky Penguin villager appearing in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo Edit
Emile sees Hopper's house plot, revealing his upcoming arrival.
Emile talks to Hopper, who speaks of Benchton, which he won't admit that he misses. Later, Emile visits Hopper in his home, while he's hanging out with Croque.
During Emile's and Marriland's search for the petaltail dragonfly, Marriland details some of Hopper's history in Benchton to kill time. According to Marriland, Hopper was one of his starter animals, and always complained about his itchy shirt. While living in Benchton, Hopper was cranky, but also very nice. Near the end of Marriland's series, Hopper "dies of old age", and Benchton holds a funeral for him. However, he turns out to have faked his death and moved to Palette.
Suspiciously enough, Hopper was hiding in the bug section of the museum the entire day, as if to avoid meeting Marriland at all costs.
- Hopper is the fourth Grumpy villager to live in Palette simultaneously, the others being Croque, Fang, and Rocco.
