Beau is a lazy deer villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name means "handsome" in French. His catchphrase refers to a salt lick, a place wildlife go to lick mineral nutrients from a deposit of salts and other minerals.

In New Horizons, Beau has the nature hobby and may be found reading a book pertaining to an item he is studying, which can be either flowers, bugs, fish, or fossils.



Artwork of Beau from New Leaf.

Beau is a deer that resembles either an impala or a kob, two species of antelope. He has bright orange fur and sports black-tipped ears and hooves. He has striped antlers, white circles around his eyes, peach eyelids, a white snout, and a brown nose and philtrum.


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

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

    In New Horizons[edit]

    In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Beau 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.
