Raddle in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a lazy frog villager making a comeback after a long break between Japan's GameCube title expansion, Dōbutsu no Mori e+, and the global DS title, New Leaf. It makes sense that Raddle would return in New Horizons as his appearance upon using his e-reader card in Dōbutsu no Mori e+ features him washing up on the shores of an island.

Raddle's visual appearance is based on the yellow-banded poison dart frog. He is a dark yellow—nearly black—frog with yellow spots on either side of his face, top of his eyes, hands, and feet. His eyes are simple white pupils.

When players first meet Raddle in New Horizons, he will be outfitted like a doctor--wearing a lab coat and surgical mask. This could be a reference to the toxicity of the frog species he's based on. His initial catchphrase will be "aaach—." In Dōbutsu no Mori e+, he wears a blue Aloha shirt.

In New Leaf, Raddle's house is modeled after a mad-science lab or surgical ward while in New Horizons, it's more of an anatomy classroom.

Raddle's birthday is June 6, making him a Gemini. His coffee preference is a Blend with lots of milk and three spoonfuls of sugar. His favorite song is Mr. K. K.
