Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Al from City Folk.

Al is a gorilla with lime green skin and dark green fur. He has round eyes, and thick, red lips. His eyebrows are dark green and thick.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the lazy personality. For more information, click here.

As a lazy villager, Al has a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle and will appear friendly toward the player. He often talks about food and is humorous or naïve during conversations. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy, smug, and cranky villagers, while snooty and jock villagers may not get along with him due to their conflicting lifestyles. In New Horizons, Al goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Al is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
