Anchovy is a lazy bird villager that appears in the Animal Crossing series. His initial phrase is the word "churp," an onomatopoeia for the noise birds make, and a burping sound. In Animal Crossing, his initial phrase has one more "u" than in the sequels.

In New Horizons, Anchovy has the play hobby and can run around with his arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Anchovy from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Anchovy is a brown bird with a sharp, yellow bill and thick, black eyebrows. He has white on his chin and belly, and dark brown hair on his head. He has white stripes on his arms and tail, which resembles feathers, and ends in the same dark brown color as his hair.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Anchovy 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, Anchovy goes to sleep at 11 PM and wakes up at 8 AM.

Anchovy proudly claims the title of "All-Time Laziest Guy." He supposedly won a "Lounging Contest" somewhere, but he doesn't have any trophy to prove it, so he's probably just making the whole thing up.
