Boots is a jock alligator villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. Data for him exists in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer but ultimately remains unused. His name may be a reference to alligator leather boots.

In New Horizons, Boots 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.


Artwork of Boots from Animal Crossing.


Boots is a green alligator with a white jawline, light green spots, and lighter-hued nostrils. Except for when his eyes are shut, Boots' eyes are always staring up in a joyful manner. From Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo onwards, however, Boots' eyes are normalized, while his original eyes replace his delighted expression, although he is still looking upwards. He bears a strong resemblance to Alfonso, a lazy villager of the same species.


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

As a jock villager, Boots 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, Boots goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
