Boomer is a lazy penguin in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing as an islander, and he appears as a villager in Animal Crossing: City Folk and all subsequent games. His name may come from the sound of a bomb explosion, 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 wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.



Boomer in Animal Crossing.

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.

Animal Crossing[edit]

As a lazy islander, Boomer will act stubborn, desiring to remain as independent as possible. This is akin to cranky villagers, though he would not inherit the personality beyond Animal Crossing.

City Folk onwards[edit]

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