Bob is a lazy villager who has appeared in every game of the Animal Crossing series. His name is probably a reference to bobcats. His initial phrase, "pthhpth," may be a reference to the sound a cat makes when coughing up a hairball.

In older versions of Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, icons for Bob could be found unused in the game code. Fittingly, Bob would eventually become an official part of the game as of the January 2018 update.

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.
