Benedict is a lazy chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori e+ and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name may come from the meal, eggs Benedict, which includes a poached egg, relating to his species. His favorite saying also references eggs.

In New Horizons, Benedict 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]

Appearance[edit]

Benedict in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

Benedict is a scarlet chicken with a white face and a yellow beak, feet, and comb. He has swollen cheeks. His eyes do not close whenever he smiles.

Personality[edit]

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

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

Villager information[edit]

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Benedict 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.
