Bob is a lazy cat villager in the Animal Crossing series who has appeared in every game. His name may be derived from bobcat.

In New Horizons, Bob has the play hobby and can run around with their arms extended at any time, rather than only outside Resident Services during a scripted activity with a group of villagers.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Bob is a purple cat with darker purple polka dots, half-closed lazy yellow eyes, and light purple paws. The inside of his ears are pink, and his tail is purple with dark purple stripes.

Personality[edit]

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

As a lazy villager, Bob will be easy to get along with due to his laid-back lifestyle. Like all lazy villagers, he shares a love of food and relaxing, and will often bring it up in conversations with the player. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, he will mention his dream of diving in a pool of food. He will enjoy partaking in the usual hobbies, usually for relaxing reasons or for food, when fishing. He will get along well with other villagers, but may offend or confuse jock villagers, who have a conflicting lifestyle of exercise and fitness, compared to the lazy lifestyle of relaxing and food.
