Bones is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games except Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. His name is likely derived from the dog bone, a popular toy for dogs.

In New Horizons, Bones 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]

Artwork of Bones from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Bones is a dog that has brown and black spots all over his body. A large brown patch covers his right eye. His ears are tipped black, and his muzzle is a plushy, faded pink. His tail is white, and his paws and feet appear the same color as his muzzle.

Personality[edit]

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

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