Boomer is a lazy penguin villager who first appears in Animal Crossing as a islander. He is absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World, but reappears in later games. His name may come from the sound a bomb makes, boom. This is a reference to his appearance, which resembles a pilot. His Japanese catchphrase is also an onomatopoeia for a firing sound, further referencing his appearance.

In New Horizons, Boomer has the fitness hobby and will be more frequently seen participating in exercises by stretching or lifting heavy weights.



Boomer PG.png

Boomer is an olive green penguin who wears a pilot's hat and goggles, with a tan backpack on his back. His eyes are thick, small black rectangles. His eyebrows are partially obscured by the goggles, but are similar to his eyes, except for being slightly longer and thinner. His flipper tips and belly are white, and his beak and legs are orange. Boomer bears a slight resemblance in appearance to Flash, a cranky bird islander.


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

As a lazy villager, Boomer will enjoy napping and talking about food, as well as appearing calm and relaxed through most circumstances. Like all villagers, he will enjoy the usual hobbies. When he talks about clothes, he may mention his alter ego, "Fashion Lad", a made-up hero by lazy villagers who tackle fashion disasters. Snooty and jock villagers will find it difficult to get along with him, due to his relaxed lifestyle, which may cause offense to these villagers. Overall, he will get on well with other villagers in the town.

Fruit Allergy[edit]

In the original Animal Crossing, Boomer is allergic to cherries, and feeding him them will reduce the likelihood of him dropping money bags. His favorite fruit is pears.

Names in other languages[edit]

Japanese ショーイ
From shoui, second lieutenant

Korean 팽기
Possibly a combination of the words "펭귄" (pengguin; penguin) and "비행기" (bihaenggi; airplane), referring to his pilot-inspired design

Simplified Chinese 秀益
Transliteration of the Japanese name

German Max May come from Maximus, a Latin family name meaning "[the] greatest."

European Spanish Serafino From the Hebrew word seraphim, which were angels with 6 wings. May be a reference to penguins inability to fly.

European French Ethan From Hebrew, meaning solid or firm, in reference to his chubbiness.

Italian Icaro From the Greek mythical character Icarus, son of Daedalus, who died drowing in the sea, while fleeing from Crete, for flying too close to the Sun with his wings made of wax and feathers despite his father's warnings. An ironic remark about penguins' inability to fly despite being birds and Boomer's pilot-inspired design.
