Boris is a cranky, pig villager that first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and would originally appear only in its GameCube ports until making a return in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. His name presumably comes from the word "boar", an animal similar to a pig, and usually wild. His initial phrase, "schnort", is pronounced similarly to "snort", a noise pigs and boars make. Similarly, his Japanese catchphrase is the Japanese equivalent of this sound.



Boris PG.png

Boris is a blue pig with a large pink snout and large eyes and teeth that poke out of his mouth. These features give him a passing resemblance to Ganon, the main antagonist of the Legend of Zelda Series. His eyes are half-closed and slanted to appear like he is angry, though he is also smiling, giving him a determined expression. His initial shirt is Kaffe's Shirt.

In Doubutsu no Mori, Boris has yellow eyelids, and his eyes are more compressed and displaced.


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

Boris has a cranky personality, meaning he will appear rude and belittling at the player at first, but eventually warm up to them as they befriend him. He will appear mature compared to the other male personality types, meaning he will not get along with Lazy or Peppy villagers, the latter of which he may spread rumors of. He will, however, get along well with Snooty or other Cranky villagers, due to their shared maturity.

In Animal Crossing, Boris' house features a laptop next to a desk and a chair. Two gyroids also surround a potted plant in the far corner of the room. At the entrance, the player is greeted with a wide-screen TV as well as a toy train station. Adjacent to the station is a globe.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, Boris has updated his house/RV to a man-cave theme, featuring various speakers, leather chairs, and a plasma TV
