Butch is a cranky, dog villager in the Animal Crossing series. His name reflects on the cartoon name given to dogs, usually meaning muscular in appearance. His Rottweiler appearance may also relate to this, as they too appear masculine and muscular. His initial phrase, "ROOOOOWF", is an amalgam of "woof" and "ruff". He is also the only dog with a cranky personality in all games except Doubutsu no Mori e+, where Champagne appears as well. He shares his Wild World picture quote with Curt, another villager.



Butch DnM.png

Butch is a caramel orange-brown and chocolate ebony dog with creamy white and dark brown tipped paws, possibly being a Rottweiler or Doberman, which are both aggressive dog breeds that often act as guard dogs, in reference to the tough, easily angered nature of his cranky personality. His eyebrows always show a frown. He has a great, dark dog nose with a corkscrew smile and his eyes look very serious. His dark brown, floppy dog ears slightly transition into a caramel color at the tip. His tail is also dark chocolate and his arms and legs are the same color as his head.

He could be a black-and-tan Dachshund but his markings suggest a Beagle or French Bulldog.


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

As a cranky villager, Butch will appear more adult and mature compared to other male villager types. He will get along with other cranky villagers and snooty villagers and sometimes other types of villager too, whom will share the same interests. He will sometimes find it hard to get along with peppy villagers, and will tell the player indirectly about planting gossip on peppy villagers. He will indulge in the usual hobbies, usually for spiritual reasons such as relaxing and tranquility.

He also is a watchful and responsible type of villager.
