Claude is a lazy rabbit villager from the Animal Crossing series, appearing in all games up to Doubutsu no Mori e+, and would remain absent until Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, in which Claude could be received through DLC alongside Carrie, Louie, and Maddie. His phrase, "hopalong", relates to the nature of rabbits to hop. His Japanese name is a reference to Vinegar, a cooking ingredient.

Claude is a brown rabbit with lazy eyes that are white with black pupils. He has a tan muzzle and paw tips, and a dark brown swirl on his forehead where his eyebrows would usually be. His inner ears are light blue, and he has a black nose. His expression could make one mistake Claude for a smug villager, despite being a lazy villager.


Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here. Claude is a lazy villager. He is laid back and will often talk about food and relaxing. Claude will get along well with normal villagers, who act motherly and friendly to everyone. He will not get along well with snooty and cranky villagers since they do not understand his laid-back lifestyle. He may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness and do not understand the reason behind the lazy lifestyle choice.

In Doubutsu no Mori and Doubutsu no Mori+, Claude's house has an Asian feel to it. He has two plants from the Bonsai set and four Yaoki figures. He also has a Tall Dingloid, a frog statue, and two shirts. His turntable plays either "K.K. Folk" or "K.K. Lullaby."

In Animal Crossing, Claude has a camping style room with a Desert Carpet, Lunar Horizon wallpaper, a bonfire, cooler, sleeping bag, and a red boom box that plays "K.K. Lullaby" or "K.K. Western." He has two Gyroids: a Tall Poltergoid and Tall Rustoid.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, his house/RV appears to have a bedroom theme. Pondering will play if he has a stereo in his house.
