Benedict is a chicken villager with a lazy personality from the Animal Crossing series. His name comes from the meal, "eggs benedict", which consists of a poached egg placed with bacon on an English muffin and covered in Hollandaise sauce. His name could also be a reference to Benedict Arnold, a fighter in the American Revolutionary war who betrayed General Washington.

Benedict is a scarlet (mixture of red and berry) chicken, with a white face and a yellow beak, feet, and comb. His initial clothing is the Two-Ball Shirt. He has swollen cheeks. When everyone smiles, they close their eyes, except for some characters, including Benedict.


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

As a lazy villager, Benedict will be easy to get along with due to his laid back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares an interest in food and relaxing. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food (fishing). He will get along well with other villager types such as the normal villagers who act as a mother or elder sister figure and peppy villagers who appear to be around the same age. He may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, who do not understand the reason behind the lazy lifestyle choice. Cranky villagers, however, admire their laid-back lifestyle.
