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 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.

In New Horizons[edit]

In New Horizons, if Boomer 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.

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.
