Bones is a lazy dog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. His name is likely derived from the dog bone, a popular toy for dogs, and may also be derived from the phrase "lazybones," referring to his lazy personality.

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 white dog with a large brown patch covering his right eye. His ears are tipped in black. His muzzle, paws, and feet are a plushy, faded pink.

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.

In New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, if Bones is one of the villagers who moved in during the main storyline after the villager house development quest, his house will have a combination of non-craftable furniture, plus items crafted by players during the island development storyline, primarily from the Log Series and applicable native fruit sets. He cannot have his initial house interior unless he moves out of the player's island or the Happy Home Paradise DLC is purchased, in which either the player or Isabelle can reset the interior.
