Billy is a jock goat villager introduced in Doubutsu no Mori. He appeared in the original games, and was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, before returning in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name is a pun on the term "billy goat". He is a friendly villager who often needs the player to carry out errands for him. His catchphrase, "dagnaabit," comes from "dag nab it," an exclamation of dismay. Additionally, Billy's name is also the Japanese name of Gruff, another goat villager.

Billy is an orange goat with yellow horns and pink inside his ears. He has a tuft of stringy yellow hair on the top of his head. His eyes are closed fully, making it easy to mistake him for a lazy villager.


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

Billy has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.

In Animal Crossing, Billy's house is set up like a restroom. He has several toilets, each separated in between by exotic screens. He also has a trash bin, soda machine, and aloe plant in the bottom left corner of his house.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, his house/RV has received an overhaul, and he now listens to K.K. Sonata.
