Benjamin (ハチ, Hachi) is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. He is a new character, first appearing in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His Japanese name is a reference to Hachikō, a famous dog known for his loyalty.



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


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

As a lazy villager, he 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.
