Billy is a jock goat villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori and after Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name is a pun on the term billy goat, referring to a male goat.

In New Horizons, Billy 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.


Artwork of Billy from Animal Crossing.


Billy is an orange goat with fully closed eyes, yellow horns, and pink inside his ears. He has a tuft of stringy yellow hair on the top of his head.


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

As a jock villager, Billy is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Billy goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
