Bud is a jock lion villager in the Animal Crossing series. He has appeared in all Animal Crossing series games except for the very first installment, Doubutsu no Mori. His Japanese name is a pun on the slang word gurasan, which is derived from sangurasu, meaning "sunglasses." In Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+, he is an islander.

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



Bud PG.png

Bud is brown lion with an orange mane and a large smile. He wears pink-rimmed sunglasses with dark lenses, which usually obscure his eyes; however, if viewed from an angle (or given normal glasses in Happy Home Designer, Pocket Camp, or New Horizons), one can see that Bud has small, black eyes with very small white pupils. His skin tone being darker than that of his mane may allude to the tan of a stereotypical "surfer-dude," which many of his other traits derive from.


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

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