Boone is a jock gorilla villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World and has appeared in all subsequent games. His name and catchphrase are likely derived from baboon, relating to his appearance.

In New Horizons, Boone has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Boone from Wild World.

Boone is a gorilla with brownish-orange fur. He has a red snout, blue cheeks, and light gray lips, hands, feet, and chest. He has a dark brown vertical stripe on his head that extends from the center of his brow to the back of his neck. He strikingly resembles mandrills, large baboons native to Central Africa. Unlike gorillas, they are not true apes.

Personality[edit]

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

As a jock villager, Boone is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Boone goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
