Bud (グラさん, Gura-san) is a jock lion villager in the Animal Crossing series, who appears in all Animal Crossing series games except for the very first installment, Doubutsu no Mori. From his debut in Doubutsu no Mori+ to Doubutsu no Mori e+, he is an islander.
Bud wears pink-rimmed sunglasses with dark lenses, so his eye color is unknown, but, if looked from at an angle, one can see that Bud has small, black eyes with very small white pupils. His skin tone is darker than that of his mane, complementing his stereotypical "surfer-dude" appearance as well as wearing the Blue Aloha Shirt in Animal Crossing and Flowery Shirt after being on the island, which continues the theme of his "surfer-dude" appearance. Bud's eyes can be seen in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, if he wear other glasses instead of his sunglasses.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
He has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sport and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but get confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to the jock personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.
In New Leaf
In Pocket Camp
His house in Wild World and City Folk is beach themed - with beach chairs, beach tables, a red boom box, a ukulele, and a surfboard; for wallpaper he has Tropical Vista, and Tropical Ground for carpet. When he has a radio, it has "K.K. Ska" playing on it.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Bud's house keeps the same beach-themed appearance.
