The Villager (from the Animal Crossing universe) is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. The male and female variants have been confirmed on June 30, 2016 along with the other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. 4.
In the Animal Crossing series, the player acts as the sole human in a town filled with friendly anthropomorphic animals. The player doesn't have a universal appearance, with the look of the player being determined by a series of questions presented by the first non-playable character the player interacts with. Usually this NPC is Rover the Cat, who introduces the player to Animal Crossing. This survey not only determines the player's face, but also the villager's gender, the name of their town, and the layout of their town.
While the role of the villager varies very slightly in the series, the general consensus is that the villager lives his or her life in this town with animals. Unlike most games, there is no universal plot to the series but there are plenty of things for the player to do such as go fishing, shopping, designing clothing, etc. The villager also tends to the town's environment such as by planting flowers or by cutting down excess trees.
In the latest title, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the role of the villager is expanded to the villager acting as the town mayor, and this gives the player greater control in managing and customizing their town.
The villagers featured in Super Smash Bros. 4 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are based off of several default player designs in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, with the default villager being based on the boy on the boxart of City Folk.
