Other Appearances

Porter is a monkey who runs the Train Station in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He coordinates transportation between towns. Little is known about him, and he never re-appeared in future games of the Animal Crossing series until his latest appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. He strongly resembles the villager, Champ, who appears in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk. He is a brown monkey with a pale yellow face, hands, and feet. He wears a blue station porter uniform, with gold buttons on his jacket and a badge on his hat.

NTSC-U: Some monkeys prefer the monkey bars, but not Porter—his passion is the train station where he works, and he'll make sure you get to where you're going. He can be a little intense sometimes, but he's a decent guy. Oh, and don't worry - you'll get no monkey business from him.

PAL: Forget monkey bars—this monkey knows a better way to get around! Working at the train station in his cute little uniform, he'll make sure you get where you're going. He might flip out sometimes, but he's a decent guy. And don't worry - you'll never catch him monkeying around on the job!
