Butch is a cranky dog villager in the Animal Crossing series who appears in all games to date. In all games except Doubutsu no Mori e+ and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he is the only cranky dog. His catchphrase, "ROOOOOWF," is an amalgam of woof and ruff, onomatopoeias for a dog's bark.

In New Horizons, Butch has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Butch from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

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 traditionally seen 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.

Butch could be a black-and-tan dachshund, but his markings suggest a beagle or French Bulldog.

Personality[edit]

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.
