Bud is a jock lion in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori+ as an islander, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he appears in all subsequent games as a villager. His name is a slang word for "friend."

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

Characteristics[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Artwork of Bud from Animal Crossing.

Bud is a 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. As an islander in Doubutsu no Mori+, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+, he wears a blue lei, which was removed in subsequent installments.

Personality[edit]

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 to 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.

Villager information[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

As an islander in Animal Crossing, Bud has a favorite fruit and one he is allergic to. He is allergic to peaches and loves pears, meaning giving him the former reduces the likelihood of him dropping Bells, and giving him the latter increases the likelihood of him dropping Bells.

    House[edit]

    In Animal Crossing[edit]

    As an islander, Bud's house in Animal Crossing will begin with only one furniture item, along with the exotic wall and bamboo flooring. He will request specific items for the player to give to him, which he will place in his house. After he places two items in his house, he will upgrade his wallpaper, and after he places five items, he will upgrade his flooring. Curlos requests for the same items as Bud, although his house has different wallpaper and flooring.
