Big Top is a lazy elephant 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 tent in which a circus takes place, known as a big top, as elephants are common circus animals. His initial phrase, "villain," plays along with his superhero appearance.

In New Horizons, Big Top 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]

He initially wears a No. 3 shirt, which matches his green helmet. He is unique in wearing a helmet, much like Agent S, Kid Cat, and Rocket, who are also the only villagers to wear helmets. He has typical cartoon elephant coloring, with pale gray skin and pale pink inside his ears. His mouth is on the right side of his face, like some other villagers such as Cherry.

Personality[edit]

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

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

Villager information[edit]
