Benjamin is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In New Horizons, Benjamin has the nature hobby and will be more frequently seen sitting underneath trees or observing and watering flowers. He will also fish and chase after bugs, and may also be seen carrying bundles of sticks or picnic baskets.



Benjamin in New Leaf.

Benjamin is a golden brown dog with white ears closely resembling a Labrador. He has white line-like patterns on his face, resembling whiskers, as well as bushy eyebrows and a brown nose. Benjamin also has a fluffy tail and a white belly.


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

As a lazy villager, Benjamin will enjoy dreaming and talking and eating food, as well as appearing calm and relaxed through most circumstances. Like other lazy villagers, he will share the same interests such as clothes, fishing, bug catching, and fossil hunting. When he talks about clothes, he may mention his alter-ego, "Fashion Lad", a made-up hero by lazy villagers who tackles fashion disasters. Snooty and jock villagers will find it difficult to get along with him, due to his relaxed lifestyle which may cause offense to these villagers. However, he will easily get along with Normal villagers and other Lazy villagers.
